    I have heard that Sony is working on it. Given that the average lilfespan of a console is about 5 years, we might see it in 2004. Of course, with backwards compatability, the window could be moved up...

    If the Xbox explodes in Japan and starts to put a squeeze on Sony's control there then we could possibly see it sooner, but I doubt it. I would expect to start hearing about it middle - late 2004.

    Rumor has it that the CELL technology won't be ready for testing until 2004, for domestic use in 2005. So some say 2005-2006.

    I love seeing us use terms like "Cell Technology" when no one really knows anything about it. At this point it's a marketing term...we may have a very broad overview of it but it's not yet enough to start dropping it like we know what it means. [​IMG]

    If the XBOX continues successfully I will stick with that. Ps2 will be my last Playstation.

    Isn't it a bit early to already know you won't spring for a PS3?
    Unless Sony burned your crops, stole your wife and kidnapped your children I can't see having such a grudge against them. [​IMG]

    OUCH! The X-box is only a few months into its lifespan and you're already declaring it the winner? It's off to a good start, but let's at least see if some more marquee titles hit the machine before we start writing off next-generation vaporware!

    My two biggest wishes for the PS3 are:

    More video RAM for better textures(I still can't believe Sony only put 4MB of RAM for video and then half of that gets eaten by a Z-Buffer)

    Anti-Aliasing.....Sony you screwed the pooch by not having that in hardware.

    Oh and a third one: HDTV, DD, and online play all out of the box.

    I read an article translated from a Japaneese interview with the PS guy at Sony. Don't remeber magazine or his name but he was talking about organic processor chips and external networks like the internet getting to be as fast as internal connections.
    So the PS3 will be a living artificial being that attaches to a 2nd generation high speed internet connection (at least 10000)

    Somehow I think these plans will not be implemented.
    I believe we will see HDTV support, onboard DD-EX and DTS-ES support, blue laser HD-DVD with progressive, wireless network connector and hard drive built in. More memory and even faster graphics processors.
    And Tekken 10 or 15 [​IMG]

    I doubt they'd include HD-DVD support, but it'll probably have progressive scan and support HD resolutions for gaming. Four joystick ports would be nice, too.

    I hope that the PS2 is here to stay for a long time to come. I can't stand having to spend another $300.00 for a system when there is still plenty of life left in it.
