I am a developer and from what I've been told the PS3 *CAN* do 1080p, and I'm pretty sure even 2x 1080p, but as mentioned since some games may not cope well at 1080p they'll be done in 720p or 1080i then scaled or de-interlaced on the PS3 and output at 1080p.
But I'm not working on our PS3 atm so it is still possible that I'm wrong.
As far as I know the PS3 doesn't actually exist yet so you must be talking about a beta kit.
It's looking more like the PS3 is not the Xbox 360 crusher Sony make it out to be. With Sony's reputation for hype you can't believe what they say. The PS3 does looks like a good console, apart from that weird shaped controller. But enough isn't known about it yet. It isn't a 360 crusher, more like on par at the very least.
You know the MGS demo on the PS3, well that wasn't an actual game, no controls or AI or anything like that, it was just a tech demo. And Hideo Kojima himself in an interview said that it was technical possible to do the tech demo on the 360 as well.
Australia wont see the PS3 till the end off the year at least and it probably won't be till early next year. Though with the Xbox 360 already out Sony might want to hurry up there launch dates otherwise there gonna be in trouble.
The 360 is an awesome console, it's very powerful and efficient hardware that's very easy for developers to program for. In fact it's suppose to have better development tools than the Xbox 1.
the xbox 360 has a usb connector, it can be used (among other things) for the connection of the wireless network adapter. Being an extremely dear $169, do you think its possible that you could use another (say netcomm or belkin etc.) USB wireless network adapter and get the same result?!?!?!?!
Don't think so because you would need a driver to use it which the 360 doesn't have. But you could use a Wi Fi bridge and hook it up to the ethernet port.
Personally I'm gonna get the MS adapter cause it's small, compact and attaches onto he back of the console. Probably be able to import it for around $140-$150 but I'm gonna wait a while to see if the price comes down over seas.
