PS3 pictures |

Just to help you guys visualise the PS3 a Japanese website has posted up pictures of the PS3.

The 20GB PS3, apart from the HDMI, now also has a silver logo rather than matt black as it was.

PS3 meets PS2:

It isn’t quite as big as I thought it would have been, but it’s still pretty large- I like the look a bit more now too. I like the way they have the PS2 network adaptor attached too! πŸ˜› πŸ˜‰

Interesting side note- the on/off/reset and eject buttons are heat sensitive. Touch them and they react to your body heat- not your usual “push and click” style found on the PS2.

Here’s the controllers compared.

I’ve heard the buttons are less like 360 triggers and more like “pedals” in their feeling and a bit rubbery.

  • Thanks for posting the pictures Tom. Gotta love those triggers!

  • Man the PS3 is one sexy console!

    What am I saying. 😐

    It sure is sexy !!!! lol If you add the power brick to the 360 i believe it’s bigger than the PS3. The fact that the PS3 supposedly runs as quiet as the slim PS2 and runs fairly cool leads me to believe that this could be this best system ever made by man !! Might just end up doing better than the PS2 once the price drops so that everybody can afford it. I’ll have one at launch though… πŸ™‚

    Pedals eh? I like that.. Sounds better than triggers to me.

  • I love the triggers πŸ™‚ Man the PS3 is a sexy beast πŸ˜€

  • Heat sensitive? Does that mean, I cant (if I am a too lazy bast*rd) switch it on with a piece of wood…

    Ok, I think, this generation is able to be switched on via the pad…

    I think the power brick and 360 weigh the same as the PS3.

  • Switch it on with a piece of wood. LOL At least you can turn the console off via the controller.

    I’m really curious to see how the heat sensitive buttons work!

  • Segitz you are one lazy dude! πŸ˜€

    *measures piece of wood long enough to reach my TV from my chair*

  • Ive heard that the 360 is both bigger and heavier when one includes the power brick. Im glad to hear the buttons are more like pedals than triggers, because triggers tend to only be good for certain types of games, and cumbersome for everything else. A more pedal like button means the button springs back faster than a trigger.

    It seems that the PS3 is deeper, but not much thicker than a ps2. When placed next to the ps2, it looks like a classier refined older brother!

    i just hope to God that they dont make all racing games only playable with the triggers. i like to use the X button to accelerate and most of the 360 racing games ive played are strictly trigger acceleration. my fingers get cramped if i play to long like that

  • I prefer the X button as well. But hopefully we’ll have a choice to switch it back to the x buton if wanted
