And let me tell you- i was very disappointed. not only did the sony rep have no idea about gaming or the ps3, but the only new thing i learned from the whole day is the case is translucent.
he had everything written down on a little note pad. reading from it. if we asked a question that he couldnt find the answer to, it was something he wasnt allowed to talk about.
after witnessing the "load" time of the games, i can say start a new game before making dinner, that way it may be ready to go by the time you get there. (did you read the 9 min load for ridge racer 7, yep-its true. although i dont know if it was exactly 9, but it was more then 5)
the controller is wider then the ps2 dual shock, and lighter. i miss the rumble feature but he said "isnt the motion sensing better though". so i said "not really, but im curious how nintendo do it, in a smaller case". he completely ignored me and didnt come back the rest of the time.
as for how they looked, imagine it as a ps2 vs xbox. the xbox looks better, but the ps2 has better games (to some poeple, not me though). i think it's going to be the complete opposite this time.
oh- i also asked him about metal gear 4 being moved to the 360 too, and that was a "i'm not allowed to comment" things.
oh yeah, i just want to say congratulations to the first 2 people to the stores on launch day!
