How will people be able to play Tekken 6 with two low latency USB fight sticks if the console only has ONE!!! ONE USB!!!!

Btw, where can I find the Euro and Pound sign on an American style keyboard? Its like foreign currencies don't exist!

How ? It's Called.. BLU RAY !  Firin ma lazah ! Blue Tooth ! And by that I don't mean harold Bluetooth the viking, Nay ! I mean the low latency signal that ps3 controllers use... 1 Usb port will indeed suck though..

It doesn't affect me though, my ps3 has 4 and I don't use fight sticks to play tekken.. I prefere the controller :X !1

It probably depends on who made the keyboard.. You should be able to find the american patriotism sign somewhere on it.. and it should be at a level between 1 and 5. At level 5 the keyboard also makes a waving sound when you use it and has the same colours as the american flag. Some also comes with a eagle. At 1 it should include currency signs you've never even heard of.. such as this :

 

On another unrelated note:

I know it's old, but it's unrelated so it's ok.

 

On another related note: 60 euro is closer to 100 dollars than 50.

This apple fantastic keyboard doesn't do Euro or Pound, has it got something to do with Macs being Pounded in Europe for not being cool enough to justify the high(er) price charged with both a Euro tax and a Mac tax? It does do ^^^^^^^^ and %%%%% and ((((((( and ))))))) &&&&&&& &&&&&&& or something like that. What level is it?

60 Euros may be closer to $100 but its also closer to BETRAYAL of the Sony fans that 100 Euro is.

 



Tease.

Leaked photos show two USB ports though ....

Could be that the leaked photos were of a prototype and they might have finetuned it since then. or they could have been fake. either way.

Maybe, but the USB ports in the PS3 are double ports, original PS3 had two double ports, since 40Gb model they only had one double port. I don't see how they would save any money by cutting it to a single port, the electronics are exactly the same, it just has two inputs. I guess it could save a small amount of space, but that would be pretty insignificant. The whole PS3 slim rumour started from these photos, so if they're fake, then that casts doubt on the PS3 slim however many USB ports it has.

 



if that is the new euro price then UK wont get a price cut.... its £299 now which is 348 euros



I'm not really here!

As I said, it might have just been a prototype. They could have cut it down to 1 port just to conserve space so they could use the space for something else. Again, I think it is dumb to drop down to 1 USB port but then again, Sony have been doing odd stuff for the entirity of this generation.

I expect PS3 to be obove xbox in france for that month.


Ps3 is uasually above 360 in France already.


Whats really new? France is one of the most ANTI-AMERICA country out there.

we dont buy crap

that doesn't mean we can't buy very good stuff from USA

McDO is pretty good in his category, I really like it.

My mother car is ... a Ford  !!

By the way : USA is one of the most anti-France country out there ...



Time to Work !

Making the PS3 even worse now are we Sony? Just suck it up and start making the original PS3 with full BC support.



Well.. if it's true they will announce it at Leipig Game Convention.. can't wait for that!



 

Face the future.. Gamecenter ID: nikkom_nl (oh no he didn't!!) 

Well my PS3 has 4 USB Ports last time i checked, but then again it was a tweaked Bundled Model, i think motorstorm at the time so...

I Assume Standard models still use 2 USB ports?

If so... Wow... only 1 = Fail. hope this is fake.



Didn't even the ps2 have two USB ports? I don't see why the ps3 wouldn't, slim or not.

Plus, two was bad enough when it came to things like Rock Band. Having just one.... it would suck having to constantly switch what's using the slot depending on whether you need to charge a controller, your headset, etc.

As for an August price cut, that would fit the various rumors floating around about a price cut in time for Madden.  Of course, this rumor could simply be a re-telling of that rumor.



This site is crap, I don't believe it, 1 USB port....
