    "Portability"?

    No.

    Not only is this thing monstrous but I think it would detract from the experience, mainly because 1) Games will NOT look as good on such a tiny screen, and 2) Why on earth would you want your PS3 to be 'portable'? It doesn't make sense...

    And also the PS3 emits alot of heat, so placing on your lap will make your legs really hot.

    Don't some bathrooms have a point for electric shavers?

    Not that I would suggest electronics and water is a good idea.

    They say also excessive heat can cause sterility. It's a problem with guys who use laptops a lot too close to their wang.

    A PS3 will not only make you sterile, it'll crush your nuts.

    Sony needs to make the PSP act as a screen for PS3 already.

    Considering the price, wouldn't a semi intelligent choice be to just buy the PSP and live with the idea the screen will be fractionally smaller than this enormous 7 inch screen?

    Plus if you go to this offered link from above
    http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/04/19/ps3-ge...nch-lcd-screen/
    and then scroll down, you find that Intec has a 10 inch screen.

    But I don't think even the 10 inch screen is a major bonus.

    I don't think anyone bought their PS3 to watch their media on an inferior viewer.

    Cooked legs anyone?

    Although this thing looks disgusting, I wouldn't mind having a PS3 laptop though.

    Like you'll take out your "mini-size" 10 pound PS3 with 7" screen hooked up to a 500W generator in a bus?

    I guess the only people that would get this is for those who don't have a TV.

    You can get 1280x1024 (That would be 1280x720 if you did HD with the PS3) 7" displays, what res is this?

    I'm not sure if you can buy it, but, this was to prove you can get 1080p on a 7 inch.
