New Consoles Configuration....

Well here's the deal: The XBox 360 has one Ethernet port, The Revolution also has one ethernet port. That leaves the PS3. It has 3 Ethernet ports -- one labeled "Input" and two labeled "Output" Does this mean that I can hook up my Revolution and XBox 360 to the Outputs on the PS3 and save the cost of a router? Or is it just going to be a built in Hub?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Keith Byrne I dunno, but that would save on much cabling :)[/quote]Wouldn't it! I'm hoping Sony has the same thoughts -- and relabels those ports...

  • I don't know but i'm guessing it would just be for the PS3. I don't think it would work as a router.

Let me know how that goes. Hard to say at this point since we really do not have the specifics on that part of the machine.

I can't stop laughing. Ask around on the GameSpy forums. There are alot of knowlegable people there. I thought the PS3 was a George Foreman grill...[/quote] That's what I thought for a while there. I used to have it in my signature as a link to the $500 George Foreman grill yesterday. Maybe I should put it back in . . .

  • Sony wouldn't do that - the PS3 space/drive is about equivalent to today's Xbox. A router would seem...surprising. I have a George Foreman grill.

  • Heh, damn. That'd be a kickass feature. Console with a built-in router... I'm w00ting to that.

  • I already have a wireless router so I think the built in Wifi is awesome. Sweet sweet wireless networls I'm telling you folks that wireless is really worth the money, if you got the money.

  • If it is it would simplify my connectivity quite a bit. The Wi-Fi dongles are expensive, and the Router probably is too... I wanna see some more information on this... I would ask the question on a Sony forum, but I'm afraid of the flames that would ensue -- and how bad I'll flame back.

  • I thought I heard the same question somewhere on Gamespot or Penny Arcade Forums. I wish I knew 'cause that's a very damn good question right there.

  • I dunno. Interesting question, though. It'd be kind of cool, but that would lead to more wires... And my PC/TV area is already a jungle. And I don't feel like cleaning it up. Looks nice.
