PS3 to be upgraded yearly?

Take this with a grain of salt: http://www.gamersreports.com/news/2837/

I'm sorry but if they really are in fact trying to turn this into a PC I just lost interest. They're comparing themselves to Apple and Dell....

I was really into the PS3 up until this point. I was really looking forward to it, but now I just don't know.

Same here. If you need to pay a lot just to upgrade, then I'm gonna have to go with a 360. Honestly, a Wii interests me the most right now.

I think the idea behind the Wii is great, but I want to test it out first. I read about some problems they were having with Red Steel.

Plus I read that there was a tennis game on the Wii where you didn't actually control the players court movement, they just ran towards the ball and you swung. I'm just waiting to pass judgement on it.

Well that just sucks, I only want a next gen console ffs! I just want to pay a one of fee and thats it, have the console, not have to worry about upgrading it or crap like that. That's what a PC is for!
Sony REALLY need to start thinking with sense here before they crash land the PS3.

Yeah, I think they let their success with the PS2 get to their heads.

Are you asking if their in business to make money? Then yes of course. All companies are (except for non profit organizations of course.)

They're no greedier than Microsoft, Apple, Dell, IBM, etc...etc....

Boo-damn. I just wanna buy a simple console, non-upgradeable. That's the thing with a console. You don't need to upgrade it every other month to get the best out of things.

Thats just wrong why do they need more speed when the ps3 is already faster then any home pc and will probably be that for the next 2 years, its a console not a damn pc ffs.

I will just go whit a 360 now and later a Wii, i am not gonna spend money just to have the fastest Ps3 in my neighborhood, the ps3 wont need any more speed until 2010 a new graphics card and HDD might be needed but not Cpu......

I don't like the look of this. Sony is just getting stupid now. They should really think about it, not many people are going to want to buy the PS3 because you have to upgrade and better versions come the later year. I just find that pathetic, Sony can atleast do the same as Xbox and just bring out a console and leave it at it is with no hassles. I'm still going to buy a PS3 but when it comes to upgrading.... Ugh. I'm just hoping this turns out to be a bunch of bullshit.

It doesn't say anywhere you have to upgrade.

This could also mean just the minor hardware changes a console goes through in it's life cycle.

HHHMMMMM..... Well as long as I don't need upgrades to play simple games or you need these upgrades for better GFX then I'm ok with it.

If this does happen, Sony will lose money definately. They're not looking in those terms. Is this the fall of Sony? I have predicted that for a long time, and now this is more proof for it.

The whole reason I'd buy one of these next-generation consoles is to play the really top games without having to spend a fortune upgrading annually. Continual optimisation around existing hardware has worked for every other games console, and this shouldn't be an exception.

yeah, this might be bad news. My best reason to buy a PS3 is the simple fact that u just put the disc in the machine, and then u play. No installing, upgrading, patching etc.

I might consider just buying a Wii and stick with my PC now.
Except for the fact that you get a Blue ray player with the Ps3, which might come in handy..
