People are stupid to complain about 200 extra. Work 2 hours overtime a day and you'll have enough to pay the difference in a damn week or two.

 

OMFG dude, did you just tell me to work 2 extra hours a day for 2 weeks so I could afford a gaming system that has an arguably worse library than the one i can afford for 199(my job doesn't have overtime).

Look man, the PS3's price is holding it back. I understand. The 360 might get pwnd. However, please, don't blame the consumer. First your pro-piracy, and now your anti-consumer, because people should be happy to pay 400 dollars for a PS3, but they should simply steal their games, movies, and music, because they are too expensive?

Explain yourself, sir.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

just buy one you cry-babies. I spend $650 on mine, i think you can afford $400



I really dont think it is just the price of the system holding it back. It has the same games as the 360 does (the 360 plays most of them better) they both have an online network granted you have to pay a whole $50.00 for 13 months for quality . (xbox live is far superior) and the PS3 can play Blue-ray movies. honestly how many blue ray movies does everyone here have? I have 3. But I have 400+ DVD movies.



Albion - Its Fun as Ballz !!!!!

People seem to forget how bad things were in 2007. Sony is doing much better now. Could Sony have done anything better at a $400 price point? I dont think they could of without more massive exclusive titles.

It would be crazy to make $200 worth of price cuts in one year. $100 a year will probably be their price cut limit.

I think in 2008 Sony reassured third party developers that their platform is strong and good enough to support their games. There was less 360 third party exclusives this year over last year.

Things could of been much much worse.



Let us all remember game development companies do not care if they build a game for Wii/360/PS3 there going t make the game on the console that makes them the most MONEY they dont give a crap about anything else.

Some of them actually care more for the artistic integrity of their work then just the money, hence why some are ARTISTS and others are just businessmen/dev just like in any other medium.



Why do you guys care so much about the PS3, the thing you really should worry about is if PS3 will lose developer support or not.

Well I think that’s the reason they care for its sales. Bad sales bad support ;)

@ OP

As per your topic title, what is Sony doing to you exactly? Quit the fanboyism and start playing the great games that they've given to you.



It's all about the game.

I'll be patiently waiting for 2009, the year of retrbution... let's see how MS holds up against that.

Were you one who said 2008 would be 'the year'? Or were you one who said "360's doing fine in its first year. But wait till PS3 comes out"?

People keep waiting for PS3 to make this incredible surge and for 360 to completely flop.  If you've been checking the numbers, you'll know it's almost the exact opposite lately.
