>> I agree with what CNET and so many others have written in recent months, 2008 is the year of the Playstation 3.
>> I guess Jack agrees with what we said about Sony. Now, back behind me, we got a full slate. There were, I counted them up, sixty-five LCD screens. Sony really showcased a bunch of stuff today. Now, the first one that's going to really affect you and hit your wallet, they announced that in September they'll be releasing the 80-gig version of the Sony PS3 for 399. So that's something that will really lure in fans or people who've been on the fence about getting a PS3. Now, we know Sony is a really diverse company as well. And [inaudible] thing that they can do is deliver content to the PS3. Well, they just announced a new delivery service where you can get TV shows and movies through the Playstation store. But what really makes it unique is not only do they have the PS3 but they have the PSP. So once you get that content downloaded, whether it's in HD or standard definition content, you can connect your PSP to your PS3 and also go mobile and take that video content with you. I love that, that's going to be a super hot feature. In other content news, the owners of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will actually be able to have a Gran Turismo TV channel that'll provide a whole bunch of other racing car content behind the scenes for all users that just can't get enough of your cars. Now, on the software side, Sony showcased a few really killer titles. The first up was Jim Lee, comic book legion, who came to the stage to showcased DC Universe online.
>> We're actually going to show you for the first time ever just a sneak peek...
>> Play against or along side Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Joker.
>> You could do things like fight along aside of Batman or even work with The Joker to let loose all those criminals in the Arkham Asylum. That looked really hot. And another announcement that got people really juiced up was the fact that God of War 3 is coming to the PS3 with a really slick trailer, so people were cheering about that one. And finally Sony showcased a new game coming out called MAG, which stands for Massive Action Game. It's going to support up to 256 players at one time. It's also going to be squad based, so within those 256 players, you'll be broken up into squads of eight. It looked crazy. It's over the top. And really Sony's pushing its power with the PS3. It has all the networking features. It has all the graphic prowess [assumed spelling] to handle this. And I can't wait to just that one out, it's going to be super hot, so there you go.
