"BluRay player AND Next-Gen Console for $299!?!"5.0 starson by kalikid714
Pros: BluRay player for $299= DEAL , Next Gen HD console with a cell processor powerful enough for <a href="http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-PS3">molecular simulation</a>, $299= STEAL
Cons: Needs backward compatibility (firmware update can fix that), and enhanced online play (but it still beats paying $50 a year to play with other people)
Summary: BluRay player, next generation console, it's already double what its worth (and what other consoles go for). Also, everytime I use my ps3 (I already own a previous model) and I use the Folding@home project, I feel like I'm donating to cancer and Alzheimer's research.
"Starting in 2006, we began looking forward to another major advance in capabilities. This advance utilizes the new Cell processor in Sony's PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) to achieve performance previously only possible on supercomputers. With this new technology (as well as new advances with GPUs), we will likely be able to attain performance on the 20 GigaFLOP scale per computer. With about 50,000 such machines, we would be able to achieve performance on the PetaFLOP scale. With software from Sony, the PlayStation 3 will contribute to the Folding@home project, pushing FAH another major step forward." - Pande lab Stanford University
.... Donate to the cause people! And play some great games while you're at it :)
