Ken is on a roll these days

Kutaragi attributed public interest in Sony to its unique structure, which resembles neither a strictly PC nor an electronics company. "We're kind of the stepson of the industry... But that's why people find us so interesting. The world would be a cold place indeed without the PlayStation."


Lastly, Kutaragi addressed cooling the Cell. "We'll use heat pipes and a custom cooling solution, but the methods used will be common," he said. "We definitely aren't using any proprietary methods... We certainly couldn't fit a liquid cooling system [inside the PS3]... We're spending a lot on heat and electromagnetic interference [management]. The power supply could almost be sold separately."

---

Though he was joking I can just imagine it. $600.00 PS3 and only $49.95 for the power supply.

...a cold place indeed.
 
Maybe Sony will smarten up and sell the power supply seperately, that way I could buy that first and save up to buy the system later Wink.

To their credit it sounds like it will be integrated so you do not have a useless brick laying around your entertainment system (ala 360).

I found this quote interesting:
 
"Kutaragi also mentioned some ways Sony might cut down on the Cell's manufacturing costs. One was adoption of a 65-nanometer process, an event that Kutaragi predicted will occur in 2007."
 
That wasn't handled any better than Microsoft's blunder. Not that I planned on buying a launch unit, but I'd definitely wait now.
