Dev kit is for releasing games and such, not for an independent developer to try homebrew code on the PS3, that's what Linux is there for... they wanted a legal, homebrew community, and failed at that...

and that's pretty much PR bullshit... PS3 Slim has to be 100% compatible with PS3, that means little to none hardware changes (only optimizations at a physical level, those shouldn't have a major impact on drivers)... true, a bit of an extra cost, but one they shoudl've assumed.... they have just slapped the homebrew community, and sadly it will end in a piracy scene, because they will need to run unsigned code on the Slim...

You are one of very very very few people who actually care about Linux. Even just considering the people who installed linux, you are an extreme minority opinion; the general consensus among those who installed it is that the best thing about it is just the fun of installing it. It isn't really useful.

Just because you and very few others enjoy dabbling with it doesn't mean the lack of it at a cheaper price makes the PS3 Slim a ripoff. Most people dgaf. There's no reason Sony should assume extra costs to please an extreme minority of people. Probably 1000 worldwide, if that.

their userbase is a minority anyway lol, specially because a lot of people got it as a Blu-Ray player lol, and they care about it (or they want them to believe that lol)

and that "general consensus" was about Sony's stupid decision of blocking access to the GPU from Linux and some SPUs (PS3's cell has 2 blocked SPUs IIRC...)

There's nothing wrong with that, if that's what you have to do. :)

No the processer in the slim isn't as good as the ps3 phat, it just heats up more. I don't want a slim, i like mine with all the features and better processer which by the way enables faster loading times..

Me, I would rather get a (second-hand!) 60GB PS3, since such has a lot of features.
Hn... I remember the days when 60GB was the most expensive, but now the memory size grew to 250GB? Woof.

..."Twilight"? I'd rather read "My Immortal."

an Intel Core i7 and a Radeon HD5k series will do the trick, for around the same price of a PS3... Full DX11 Gaming support (or a Radeon HD4k for partial DX11 support)

@Dark G.... dude come on.... $300 bucks for the one of the best BD Players and full HD Gaming Support is NOT a bad deal. I have two PS3 phat. One in my living room for BD only and my gaming one in my Game Room. Im about to upgrade my HDD to 500gig cause my 80 is full. Thats only about $175 bucks. The Slim was a good idea and great marketing that is working wonders for Sony. The Go well is way to high a price but hell look at the DSi is turned out to be a Crap Applicator. Ive reverted back to playin my DS LIte cause I have the click feel to the buttons. All companies screw up. Competetion rules the markets. Microsoft and Sony and Nintendo all have killer apps and it drives our gaming habits. I like them all but Ive been leaning to Sony as of late. Thats just my personal preference. But I do have to say this.... the PSP 2000 is a great handheld cause is a portable PSone player. (2000 is my fav model, another personal preference.... but the Zune rocks too)

I had to make the decision recently, 360 for cheaper or PS3 for BluRay. I chose the 360. Games aside and amount of friends online aside, I think the BluRay thing is a matter of where you think the industry is going and personally, I think BluRay will go the way of BetaMax because of direct downloading. I think this is going to happen a lot faster than anyone thinks, and bluray will become a nonfactor. To me, besides the cost, I think it's the reason that bluray has been popular but will never catch fire. Therefore, more friends on 360, more people in general with a 360, and Sony only having one exclusive I'd play (LBP), I had to go with 360 and I don't regret the decision at all.

It used to be one of the best BD players out there, but that's no longer true... BD Players have come down in price, and added the needed features (most modern BD Players from almost all companies are upgradeable and are cheaper than a PS3)... during the first year or so it was true, but no more...

full HD support is BS, just marketing... most PS3 games don't even qualify for HD resolutions natively... and remember, FullHD is just a marketing name for 1920x1080 resolution... ask a PC Gamer, or look at the back of any Graphics Card, you'll see that max output resolution is way higher (but most games are just upscaled beyond that).

Oh and the fact that you don't like the DSi because of what's being offered on DSiWare so far doesn't mean it turned out to be crap... the future of the DSi is to be the successor to the DS, just like the GameBoy Color was to the GameBoy... it's upgraded hardware, not just a redesigned shell...
