E3 2005: PS3 Specs & More

We talked about some of the PS3's hardware specs yesterday. Here's the full rundown.

Oh, but before that... we forgot to mention one very big detail yesterday -- the PS3 can output hi-def 1080p to not just one, but TWO HDTV's simultaneously! Some games will use dual displays to output a 32:9 panoramic view. Others can use the 2nd display to show maps or video conferencing during gameplay.

What do you think of July's PS Plus Games?
They're great! Love the lineup
They're mostly fine, but not awesome
Eh, nothing's really doing it for me this month
No. They're bad. Very bad. Sony should be ashamed
