Walmart launches PS3 hypefest on their website

We all know that retailers often start taking preorders and hyping products before there is a lot of solid information about price and release date, and Walmart seems ready to jump on this bandwagon by adding the PS3 product page to their site. There's not a lot of information, but they seem pretty confident the system will launch with multiple colors, and have the "world's most advanced cell processor." That's nice to know.

While you can't preorder the console yet, rest assured that the "computing power of 2 teraflops offers graphical expressions never seen before." I think even Sony's marketing department would scratch their heads at that one. You can also see the awesome power of the PS2 in action since they provided a screenshot of King Kong for your viewing pleasure. Has that even been announced as a PS3 game?

Oh well, this is sure to get the casual gamers salivating. It has enough techno-babble and drooling descriptions to make the PS3 seem like the second coming. I'm hyped, and I'm not even sure why.

Pre-order now, and get a free box to ship your system back to Sony once the damn thing breaks! Act now!

They did the same thing for the 360 and they have a Revolution site too. Do you really think this is worthy of a thread?

Did you guys read the Ars Technica post at all, the thread starter quoted it (same with the title)

so before you go off on him, remember that he didn't write it.

The only one flamebait been throw around here is the one you guys have been crying for; I didn?t wrote the article and I didn?t even comment on it at all, I just post it. The fact you feel aggravated because of it is merely a psychological thing that your brains just can?t associate an Xbox supporter posting any sort of news regarding Sony/PS3/PSP? and you know what? That?s your problem not ours.

And if you don?t like what you see posted or think it?s against the rules of the forum just use the p_report.gif button and a mod will take of it, in the end that?s their job not yours.

Now if you excuse me I have other things to do, have a:laugh:ay:rofl: ::pugh: :rofl: :p
