With the holiday season upon us we felt it was a good time to dream up our ideal PlayStation 3 hardware. We've done so in our latest editorial.

In short, it would have the following features:
  • SACD playback
  • 45nm Cell BE and 65 if not 45nm RSX processor
  • a capacious Solid State Drive
  • a spacious AV component cabinet, preferably ES series design
  • DSD output via HDMI, at least as an option
Nice bonuses would be:
  • PS2 compatibility (preferably with hardware emulation)
  • Memory card readers
  • 4 USB ports
  • 7.1-channel analog audio outputs
  • Integrated digital TV tuner(s) with video recording capability



What (other) features would you wish for?

Quieter fan. Lossless ripping in the OS.

I would have liked to see what could have been done with Linux if it had unfettered access to the hardware. PS3 Linux development would have had a far larger community than it did if the platform hadn't been so crippled... Confused

A dream, a dream... Smile

Apparently SCE has really considered using flash memory for storage (though for space considerations, I suppose) according to this article:

The proposal for network-only storage seemed to conveniently forget the necessity of (frequently large) HDD installs to make the loading times reasonable. I've only encountered a handful of games that don't install any data to the disk.

Perhaps that's the reason they decided against it?

I also think that'll be a bridge too far for quite a while, probably even for the first PS4s.

Here's someone else's dream version: "PS3 Supreme"

... gold-plated, decorated with diamonds...



Price: 199,995.00

(and I bet at that price it doesn't even play SACD Wink)
