First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Good God of War 3 and holy 80GB US$400 PS3

You knew it was coming, I knew it was coming, even my dog knew it was in the pipe (and hey, you know what you get when you spell dog backwards). So God of War 3, no gameplay to speak of (just a CGI trailer) but that's okay. I guess it's enough to know it's officially happening, and there's always the potential director David Jaffe and crew are saving up something to appease the Europeans at GCDC 2008 in Leipzig, Germany next month.
In other news, not as big but notable, Sony just dropped a press release confirming a new 80GB version of the 40GB PS3 this fall, virtually identical, interestingly, to Microsoft's little 40GB bump to the Xbox 360 20GB model on Sunday. Everything else, including the increasingly upsetting lack of PS2 backward compatibility (especially since it's a simple software update away) will be exactly the same. If you've been waiting all this time to buy a PS3 solely on the basis of a 40GB bump, the 80GB model's got your number.
