Razões para não comprar o PS3? Onde?

Não gosto muito de dar uma de sonysta, mas tem coisas que não dá pra ficar quieto…

1. No Live! In fact, sony came out and recently announced that they’re not even going to bother to build an answer to Xbox Live.

Concordo… o fato da Sony não fazer uma rede online unificada é, no minimo, ridiculo…

2. The 36.5 megabits per second blu ray drive that Sony is squeezing into the PS3.

The BD-Rom drive that’s going to be used in the PS3 has a speed of 36.5 MBits per second. 36.5megaBITS per second, not megaBYTES. 8bits=1byte=4.5megaBYTES per second. http://www.blu-ray.com/faq/

O PS3 vai usar um drive de 2x (72Mb/s), que é o minimo pra filmes… que fica em 9MB/s, próximo do leitor DVD 12x do 360

3. Opting for 8 USB ports and multiple memory card readers over a HDD.

There’s no reason to put in like 8 usb ports and all these freaking memory card reader and all these other ports that no one wants. We can buy a memory card adapter if we want.

We don’t need 3 ethernet ports, one will be more than plenty. JUST INCLUDE 4 USB 2.O PORTS, 1 ETHERNET PORT, SUPPORT FOR SONY MEMORY STICK DUOS (since that’s what psp uses and that’s what makes Sony the most money) AND THE STUFF TO CONNECT TO ANALOG AND HDTVS.

Ok, 3 portas de rede foi demais…mas, só 4 portas USB? E se tivesse só suporte pra Memory Sticks ia ser MUITO ruim – e iam reclamar que o PS3 só suporta o formato da Sony… Pegar o SD da minha cam da Samsung e colocar no PS3 compensa muito… ou comprar um Compact Flash de 512MB que é mais barato que um MS de 512 pra usar como Memory Card…

4. Sony disabling the ability to have LAN parties (without getting wired controllers) by insisting on using bluetooth controllers over Infrared ones.

Infravermelho? O que é isso? Ai passa alguém em frente a TV e bye-bye jogo… 😦
Nem o X360 usa IR… E nunca ouviram falar de pareamento em Bluetooth?

5. The Cell.

Not only is the cell processor going to jack up the price of the PS3 quite a bit. It’s greatly bottlenecked by the 512 MBs of L2 Cache (the 360 has twice that much L2 Cache).

For all the hype about the cell. Guess what, the processor means jack when it comes to gaming. 3 3.2 ghz cores vs. 1 3.2 ghz core and 7 PPEs mean nothing. What matters for gaming is the GPU. And most reports (anandtech etc.) state that the 360’s graphics card is almost a generation more advanced. This makes sense, ATI built the card from the ground up with technology that won’t make it’s way into PC cards for atleast an year or so. The NVIDEA card in the PS3 is identical to the card as what’ll be available for the PC in a month or two. The only thing that the cpu will actually matter for is the AI. And AI is more depenedent on L2 cache (this is what ultimately determines the number of simultanous algorithms you can run at any one time) than on processing speed. And guess what, the 360’s has twice the L2 cache of the PS3’s Cell!

Nisso eu nem posso falar muito.. não sei muito de placas graficas…

6. No requirement to make developers use 720p.

People make the ps3s 1080i sound like it’s going to be standard. All that sony said was the the PS3 supports aka. can theoretically output 1080i.

1) O PS3 suporta até 1080p NÃO 1080i… 1080i é o maximo do X360, não do PS3….
2) Nada foi dito sobre isso ainda, não dá pra se ter conclusões precipitadas…

7. Accessible cost

Blu-ray wont be cheap! Cell won’t be cheap! Odds are, when the PS3 finally does come out, MS will lower the price a bit and the PS3 will cost a small fortune by comparison. The discs cost a small fortune to manufacture, don’t expect games under $70 atleast for an year or so, and if then you consider the development costs who knows!

E a M$ não subsidia o 360?

8.The Games.

Well this one is kind of a toss up. The Xbox 360’s Kameo, Enchant Arm, Perfect Dark (drool), RE5, Gears of War, Blue Dragon, Oblivion, FPS, Racers (Forza, PGR), DoA etc. vs. GTA 4 and whatever sequels Sony has planned. What is true is the the 360s gaming library will get a one year headstart, and the PS3’s will probably take a long time to catch up, if ever.

Não há muitos jogos confirmados, mas com certeza o PS3 terá bastante… e muitos exclusivos… como GTA

9. The Design.

Well this is personal opinion too. But who came with the brilliant idea to model it after a building anyways? Fire them and make it look next gen. My old Atari Jaguar looks less crappy. YOU CALL THAT A NEXT GEN DESIGN!? There is really no symmetry to it at all. Put the drive in the middle, get rid of the weird ridges and make it actually look smooth in the front and back and well. Then you have a nextgen looking consoles.

Depende do gosto… eu acho os dois consoles bonitos…

10. Developer Hell.

No one has any experience working with the Cell. 7 PPEs, seriously, you think any developer is going to have any idea how to utilize them? Just making a game that uses dual processors takes a 50% larger budget. Meanwhile, developers are already raving about how much easier Microsoft’s standards and XNA development kits are making it to develop 360 games. And it’s a heck of a lot cheaper to manufacture the discs too. Even small developers with just $100,000 can make their own game and sell it via Xbox Live marketplace.

1) O PS3 Aceita jogos em DVD também, não tem essa de só Blu-ray
2) O Cell é basicamente um PowerPC, e, como o PS3 roda Linux – com OpenGL e Collada, padrões abertos, ao contrario do XNA da M$ que é fechado, ele não deve ser mais dificil de programar do que o MacOS X
