PC ya PS3



If you follow slashdot regularly you might have seen the post about PS3 not doing so well at E3 this year. Iv'e seen pretty good videos of realtime footages being run on PS3 i wonder how it did not make a good impact at e3. They had this awesome footage showing a virtual actor.. with various emotional changes.. and for heavens' sake they made it cry!!! (if you are interested in the video you can download it from Shreak@dc++). And guess what.. that footage was made in less than 3 month or so (they built the whole engine for PS3 and had an audition for actors and then finally modeling and animation and then rendering.. ). Trust me.. 3 monts' is a very meager amount of time for bringing out such an awesome demo. Ok the demos on the PS3 are good and you can achieve a lot and what ever.. but what good is a PS3 if it costs as much as a pc with a reasonably high end graphics card?? and by the way.. the representatives of sony say "PS3 is not a console.. its' a pc.. each part is replacable that's how it's made.." More bashing about ps3 can be found at the following links.. (iv's summarized some of the points here)

Well you can really buy a good graphics card for your PC instead which would allow you to play the games you can play on the console. In fact consoles were introduced coz the pcs' did not have enough power to render 3D graphics. But now the sceneario is different.. im' not sure how they still have their market.. some light on this would be great :D
