We've been waiting to bring this one to you for a long time. The Sony PlayStation 3 (starts at $500; Nov. 17) is one helluva mean gaming machine. Powered by the Cell processor, it features an advanced RSX graphics chip, a 20 or 60GB hard drive, Bluetooth-enabled wireless controllers, 1080p output, and a Blu-Ray drive that appears to cost almost as much all by itself as it does shoved in the belly of this beast. With a handful of launch titles confirmed, we're already preparing our schedules for a lot of "alone time" in front of our TV this Winter.
Awesome. RetroZone is selling old-school NES controllers that have been upgraded with USB connectors so you can use them on your PC or Mac. You can choose from the original NES controller ($30), NES Advantage ($35), or NES Max ($28). But for the true geeks, you can also pick up a PowerGlove ($70), PowerPad ($60), or Super Nintendo Mouse ($26). RetroZone also sells do-it-yourself upgrade kits for your own controller ($17). [Thanks, Ben!]
