Sony at CES 2006 – blah
Oh yeah! International Ces (consumer electronics show) 2006! What did you expect? A real PS3 in action? Mmm… some extra-exciting trailer? News about the controller? Well… you’ll be glad to know that…
There was nothing :). Well… almost nothing.
Everyone is hungry for news about next-generation (that – since Xbox 360 came out – can be considered actual-generation).
What a big disappointment.
American TG Daily reported that Sony representatives denied that any sort of PS3 announcement would be made at CES. If true, this means that while the PS3 will be at CES, you shouldn’t expect any new information regarding launch titles, launch date, or estimated price.
Also, a Sony’s PlayStation representative denied that the company would be making any PlayStation 3 related announcements at CES 2006.
“Although we are participating in many CES activities with Sony, we have no new announcements on PlayStation 3 planned at this time.” Sony Corporation has planned special announcements on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning, that will probably involve the PS3.
BTW, Sony has already launched their Official CES Site. Zillions of visits, naturally.
:( and no tasteful news for PS3 Fanboys. Well… they don’t need any to be happy.
But… Wait! We have something new.
In example, the Sony Developer Kit that’s going to come out:
Sony has shipped over 4,000 development kits to the developers according to Sony’s announcement on CES 2006. It is good to know this fact. Hope we could see some great lineups soon.
And..? Yeah! Blu Ray and HD Dvd discs’ case design! Yahoo! Exciting! Wowie!
In facts, through all the rumors about CES 2006, we managed to find out images representing the case design for both disc formats.
The Blu Ray’s case is a semitransparent plastic one, with blue (did u guess it?) color and the Blu-ray logo on the top.
The HD-DVD’s case is semitransparent plastic as well, coloured in red and with the HD DVD logo on the top.
Well… we have differences in logos and colors, and that’s all.
Here are images of the blu ray cases:
But who knows… Maybe they still have some hidden surprise in their CES bag…
