True. It's not entirely fair because of the price. Price means more than hype. Much more. Regards consumer acceptance and expectation - PS3 was highly anticipated system but we all know what happened after price announcment (WTF?!) so if we consider high price, pretty faint line-up (only Resistance for US launch) and all the bad PR I don't think PS3 is doing worse. With 8 million consoles sold and pretty solid performance of PS3 ports (AC, CoD4, Madden etc.) Sony can enter the 2008 without fear.
