As you may have noticed, we've got a fair number of PSX threads scattered across the forum. Some good, and some, well, a bit annoying. So this thread will now be the only PSX thread on the forum.
If you have any questions about the PSX, or any thoughts, you post them here. If you don't, then I'll just delete the new thread that has been made.
New Sony console revealed
Sony announces that it will release its new PSX console, complete with hard drive and DVD burner, in Japan this year and in other territories in 2004. First pictures inside.
At a media briefing in Tokyo earlier today, Sony announced that it will release a new game console named PSX in Japan before the end of the year. Scheduled for release in North America and Europe sometime in 2004, the sleek-looking PSX console is essentially a redesigned PlayStation 2--albeit with plenty of additional features.
With the exception of the console's 120GB hard drive and built-in Ethernet support, the PSX console's new features won't offer any benefits as far as gaming is concerned, but--thanks to the inclusion of a TV and broadcast satellite tuner and a DVD recorder--it will instead transform the PlayStation 2 into a set-top box capable of delivering online play, music, and movies straight out of the box.
When playing games, you'll plug your controllers into the rear of the PSX console, where the hard drive and Sony Memory Stick compatibility have clearly rendered the standard PS2 memory cards obsolete. No pricing information for the PSX has been announced at this time, but the box will be marketed as a high-end electronics product rather than as a game console and, as such, will be handled by Sony's Home Electronics Division as opposed to Sony Computer Entertainment.
Shame it's a bit pricey, though. 500 quid last time I checked.
Well at least it isn't £600 any more. Any thoughts of buying it?
The thing is, if I buy the PSX, in one year the PS3 will be out. It's kind of not worth buying the psx if you are a gamer. Plus, the PS3 will be more powerful and more worth your money.
NO. 21, We'll Never Forget You
If I buy it it will be because of its dvd and television capabilitys. I already own a playstation 2 so buying it for the games doesn't seem to bright. unless however you can network the two and play games with many players.
The only thing I saw was -r, but it may change by the time it hits stateside.
Yeah that's the only thing I found on it but that, like GodZero said that could change. But I don't know if I would buy it or not because the PS3 buy that time wont be long and there's going to be some good games coming out over the next two or three yeirs that mite ceep me happy for the time being.hehehe I think it will just depend on how much money I have at the time like every thing els I buy
strange aye? Sony pushed the + format, now using -. Must be a cost thing.Originally Posted by NickSCFC
Would be a bit odd if they were trying to watch the pennies, considering the stuff they've put into the PSX.
Well, my uncle is getting me a psx and and like 14 games. The psx to me is cool and worth the money. Most things that feature as much as the psx does cost like 1000 to like 4000 maybe more, so the psx is actually a bargain. I just hope my uncle gets me a new graphic card for my computer cause mine is like really really old.
Of course the PSX will be cool to you if you're getting one. It's just not cool for the people who think that that amount of money is a lot. But nice one for having an uncle with copious amounts of money! :wink:
I agree that it is well worth the money but I will probably never get it because I do not have cable in my room and by the time i move out i think i will have better things to be spending it on. The PS3 will be fairly old by the time I move into a house of my own so that's about when i'd buy a PSX. Though i would absolutely love it if i could get one sooner.. *craves for movie-onto-memory stick writing capabilities for his PSP* Let alone the DVDs, wow this thing is absolutely great for the price.
There is nothing absolute in this world. You may sometimes be at a loss knowing that this world is unreasonable.
To break the impasse, you must hold an unshakable belief and insight as well as a certain amount of vitality.
When is PSX due for its American and European release and what features will be incuded which were absent on the Japanese version?
Also, what are Sony's plans for network content in the west? What are we likely to see?
By the time the PSX hits eurpoe Sony promisses to get it back to the original specs.
The stateside release will probably have more than the japan but maby not everything, depends how much effort Sony put into it.
Release? I have know idea......
they already said any future releases will have all original specs. meaning US and Euro releases.Originally Posted by CloudANDTidus
