  1. It's the most expensive console on the market, $150 - $200 more than its rivals. Even if you believe the video game industry is "recession-proof" (it isn't), a tanking economy makes consumers more price-conscious.
  2. The PS3's big bonus is its ability to double as a Blu-Ray player. Too bad no one seems to care about hi-def DVDs. The differences between Blu-Ray and DVD are hard to see on a TV less than 50".
  3. The PS3 just doesn't have any must-have titles exclusive to the console. "LittleBigPlanet" has generated decent buzz but isn't a game-changer, and neither is Sony's new virtual world "Home."

"Tell yourself the PS3 has superior graphics if it makes you feel better, but a $400 console with a mediocre game library simply cannot compete against an Xbox 360 priced at $200 in this economy."


1. Yea, its is espensive, sony knows that. Everyone does believe me, I bought mine at the 600 dollar price tag. Yet regardless of its huge price dissadvantage the PS3 was outselling the 360 for like a whole year worldwide. Yet CNN doesn't talk about that. The 360 didn't start outselling it again worldwide till the most recent price drop. Hmmmmm an exspensive console that can out sell cheaper competiton? Un heard of.

2.BluRay is growing faster then DVD was in the VHS days. What complete idiots who know nothing. BD movies are gaining massive market share every year. I believe they are at about 20-25 percent now or something? And You most definitely can tell the difference in the visuals, even on the tiniest of screens. You know why? It is becuase the smaller the tv, the closer we fucking sit to it so we can see what is going on better, so regardless of actual tv SIZE you are seeing about the same amount of screen and visuals.

3.No good games? Now I know they are talking out their ass when the PS3 has delivered the BEST games this year. With  MGS4, Socom, Valkyria Chronicles, Little Big Planet, and Resistance 2, as well as an army of MP games that appeared on the system it has plenty. Here are some statistics for you CNN, PS3 is has more games then the 360 did at the same point in it's life span. PS3 has Sold more then the 360 at its same time in life span. PS3 is finally starting to outstrip the 360 in visual and pure gaming quality with games such as LBP, R2, K2, GoWIII, HR, et all available now or soon next year. PS3 also has the strongest line up for 2009 as well.

That includes...

Infamous(you want sandbox?You like Superheros? Right here!)

Demon's Soul (You like WRPG style games? here ya go too)

Fat Princess (You like cartoony gore? surprise!)

etc for all the ones I am forgeting.

PS3 has finally released HOME which regardless of what publications such as YOU are saying is quite popular with people vibing within it everytime I enter it. are full of shit.



The credibility of your dvd comment is off because Blu Ray is still no threat to DVD. The only thing PS3 has going for it right now is the slow but gradual list of games coming out for it.
