Folks, with the launch of the new Sony PlayStation 3 just announced we have the opportunity to ask questions to the Sony PlayStation product manager in New Zealand.

Please post questions in this thread - questions only, no discussions (at least until we have the answers). I will keep this open for a week - closing on 25 August, then send questions off.

Excuse my ignorance but is there going to be 2 versions available and will this mean the price of the old version will decrease?

I will ask this, but read the link in my post for the answer...

Folks, please read the release before asking, you may find the answer there!

Questions:
Question 1, We all know about the patent registered for full software emulation of the Playstation 2 EE and GS chips, but when will you release this to all PS3 owners? and is it proposed to be part of a firmware update or a software application/purchase from the Playstation Store?

Question 2, Why the removal of the Other OS functionality? It was indeed a great selling point for Sony - and now you have removed it?

Question 3, Can the user still remove the internal harddrive and replace with a bigger size one as like the original PS3 can?

When will the new PSP Go be released in New Zealand?
And will the current PSP-3000's price be dropped when the Go is released?

The X360 has a more open network, meaning third-party operations such as last.fm and Raptr can identify when you're playing music or a game. Will Sony ever open its network up like this?

Will it have an IR receiver for use with universal remotes, or is it still strictly bluetooth only? If not, why not?!

Why is it so expensive here compared to other parts of the world?

Will it come with a HDMI cable?

What about PS2 backwards compatibility?

Forget about Question 3; i have found the answer from another recent interview. The harddrive is located in the front under the blu-ray drive and can easily be removed still with only 2 screws.
