Games In November this year, Sony will launch the PlayStation 3. Apparantly, Sony has high expectations for the Linux-powered device, and Sony even claims it will render the PC useless. "We believe that the PS3 will be the place where our users play games, watch films, browse the Web, and use other [home] computer functions," said Sony exec Phil Harrison. "The PlayStation 3 is a computer. We do not need the PC." Let's see how Sony's Vaio devision feels about this.

RE[2]: The PS3 is slow and broken

Ofcourse you are beeing modded down - claiming the PS3 is slow because reading Video RAM from the main CPU is slow.

It is equally slow on your off-the-self nVidia card - does that mean the PC itself is slow - or reads slowly from normal RAM ?

(as a sidenote, the PS2 didn't let you read from the video ram at all from the main CPU).
