More PlayStation 3 News...
This is gonna be released in Europe july 16th too, and will supposedly come out this week in North America.
They've had it available for preorder on Gamestop.com for a few days ago. Didn't anyone know?
is it just me or everyone? But the redesign x360 looks same like ibm non-atx desktop computers.
The design is quite nice and that they integrated some stuff is nice too. I'm curious if you can put in any 2,5' HDD. They seem to have still old problems, too.
PS3 does this to just not as common as Blu-Ray disc have a hard coating on the disc to protect it so less chance of it happening (but it does happen).
pity DVD's don't have this
also the PS3 Blu-Ray Drive spins at x2 where as the xbox 360 Drive Spins at x12 so you could imagen the forces at work.
