"South Park" fans have struck back, threatening to boycott Viacom's upcoming Tom Cruise flick "Mission: Impossible III" until Viacom's Comedy Central puts back on its schedule the show's Scientology spoof episode the network yanked last week.

The company promised to have enough units for people to buy, with a production capacity of a million PS3s each month. As previously reported, the new console will feature a high density Blu-Ray DVD drive, which can store up to 50 gigabytes of information on a single disc, allowing for games that approach PC titles in detail and action and the ability to watch movies in full HD.

Sony also announced that it was dropping the price on its PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld gaming device to $199, a $50 reduction and there were new details about Sony's next gen online gaming community poised to fire back at Microsoft's XBox Live.
