More bits and pieces you should know

  Sony is releasing the prototype in September, but what do we expect to see when they open the curtains to reveal its supercharged monster. Of course most of us know about the Emotion Engine, the video card, and almost the whole inner structure of the system. The power of PSX 2 is no secret either, just about every gamer heard that the system will render 66 million polygons per second.

   Sony wants you to start putting away those coins into the piggy bank as soon as possible and when it comes to the release date you better break it. What is unknown is the actual physical look of the system. You probably came across a few different pictures of PSX 2 over the last couple of months. Most of them are probably fake photos designed by someone looking for popularity.

   It is very likely for Sony to design the system of the next generation that will use the theme of the Sony VAIO PCs. VAIOs stand out in the PC market due to its color and design. Since their PCs were public for a few years already, many of us can get an idea on what to expect from the of PSX 2.

   Playstation 2 will be using some standards that are used in the computer industry. This move makes perfect sense because they will be able to save a lot of time and money since many of the products have been already developed. The USB and i-Link port will allow us to use much of the existing hardware available for computers. These ports will allow us to use high capacity storage mediums that will replace today's memory cards.

   If we think about Sony's plans, it looks like they are looking forward to replace your PC and create their own industry. The capabilities are infinite with the DVD player and the PC standards. One problem with this though, the computer industry changes standards like we change our underwear but video game systems are changed only two or three times per decade.
