We talked about some of the PS3's hardware specs yesterday. Here's the full rundown.

Oh, but before that… we forgot to mention one very big detail yesterday — the PS3 can output hi-def 1080p to not just one, but TWO HDTV's simultaneously! Some games will use dual displays to output a 32:9 panoramic view. Others can use the 2nd display to show maps or video conferencing during gameplay.
