Whats so wrong with this? How about the fact that it's pretty lame to badmouth your competitors even if they are performing better than you. They are acting like they are in last place...

Why did they compare the Xbox 360 Arcade?

Why did they not use the Premium if they wanted to talk about online play?

It shows that they themselves have to paint their competition in the worst possible light, they have an inferiority complex.

What does the market say?

1. Online isn't important for more than 33% of consumers.
2. Blu Ray isn't important for more than 16% of consumers.

They've always played dirty, they're playing desperate now and it shows.



Tease.

^^ Yeah they do even before it was the 'Arcade' and still the 'Core' sku they updated them to include HDMI, plus this is a comparison of the $199 price point which has always had it.



add $130 to play ps2 games.

There's nothing lame or dirty about pointing out the weaknesses of your competitors.  Calm down.
