Sony Readies Real-Time Playstation 3 Demos

Real-Time Playstation 3 Demos Within Weeks?

"Perhaps the most impressive showing at this year’s Electronics Entertainment Expo, held last month in Los Angeles, were the PlayStation 3 technical demonstrations offered by Sony, though perhaps not for the right reasons.

Microsoft and Nintendo were both livid at what they hinted was a disingenuous showing by the consumer electronics giant, with even Mr Nice Guy himself, Shigeru Miyamoto, saying, “Most of what you're seeing are not even the first projections of games. They're just shiny computer graphics. They're things anyone using a computer can do.”

However, it looks as though a more tangible glimpse of what the future might hold is just around the corner, with industry nose-tappers forecasting a PlayStation 3 showing on June 21 at nVidia’s event to unveil its new GPU.

You see, the G70 is, according to nVidia, the basis of the GPU it will deploy in Sony’s PlayStation 3 console presumably at some point next year. So even if we don’t get to see actual PS3 branded real-time graphics, we should get the clearest indicator of projected final quality to date."
