PlayStation 3 release date and more!

Yesterday Sony held his E3 press conference and announced that the PlayStation 3 will be available in Japan on November 11 and in America and Europe on November 17th.

The console will be available in two models. One with a 20 GB HDD, which will not have a WiFi IEEE 802.11 b/g connection, a memory slot for SD/Compact Flash/Memory Stick and HDMI-exit. This one will have a price card of $499 / €499. The other model will have a 60 GB HDD and will have all the things that are not in the 20 GB model. The advanced model will have a price card of $549 / €599.

The controller has been changed back to the old PS2 controller, but with improvements of course. First the controller is wireless, which is actually a must. Second the controller has motion-sensing capabilities, the controller can be turned in six degrees of movement. Due to this new feature they had to get rid of the Dual Shock feature.
