PlayStation Answers -- and Questions
The Sony news conference is over, and everybody's hanging around in Sony's studio space, snacking on Sony's sushi and imbibing from Sony's open bar, asking the same questions:
"Is that too much money to ask for a game console?"
"Will this kill Nintendo?"
Sony released its price points for the PlayStation 3 tonight: $599 for a 60-gigabyte version, $499 with a 20-gig hard drive. They didn't mention any other difference between the two models.
They also revealed that the PS3 would have a motion-sensitive controller -- for example, in a flight simulator, you could actually tilt it rather than mess with a bunch buttons. (I was sitting next to a blogger who immediately remarked, "I wonder where they got that idea?")
Indeed, people are wondering whether that move -- a clear shot at the Wii -- is going to steal a lot of thunder from Nintendo, which is trying a less heavily technical approach in favor of finding a new way to interact with games.
Speaking of games, a final note: Nobody out here is talking about the titles that were previewed in the Sony presentation.
