    Sony is desperatly trying to sell as few of these as possible. First they are a year late, and now this...Someone is asleep at the wheel over there.

    Re: SONY PS3 FYI

    There are rumors coming out of the retail network all over the continent that on or around August 1, Microsoft is going to drop all SKUs of the 360 by $100. That gives us a $200 Core, $300 Premium, $400 Elite. If true, that will seriously hurt the PS3 from both a psychological and a sales perspective.

    I love how whenever Sony shoots themselves in the foot, their immediate response is to act like they meant to do it, and then shoot the other one just to prove it.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    If you want a PS3, now is the time to get one. 500 bucks and you get the Emotion Engine, something that will also be phased out.

    Should be only $10 more to get an 80 gb drive versus 60 gb.

    Re: SONY PS3 FYI

    Once the 60gb units are sold out they will lower the price of the 80gb to $499. Hate all you want but there are plenty of us out there that are happy with the PS3.

    Re: SONY PS3 FYI

    It seems that Sony loyalists always say that. They will pay all do all for the company they support, which is fine. But their actions dont get new buyers which is a must for companies to continue to succeed. Sony is the new Apple.

    Re: SONY PS3 FYI

    I was in a video game store a few months ago, and heard the clerk talking to a customer on the phone. He said the PS3 is the worst selling console in history (don't know whether this is true or not). Manufactures don't want to put out many games, until more units are sold, but people don't want to buy until more games come out. It's a vicious cycle. Pretty much a disaster on Sony's part. I didn't think they could possible screw this up, after the success of the PS1 and PS2.

    Its a changing company. Maybe some day down the road they will get a new business plan before they alienate their customers totally.

    Love the Wii! I've had mine for several months now and I still play it as much as I did when I bought it.

    However, No NCAA 08, no NASCAR 08, etc. makes me sad. I may have to get an X-Box for the sports games.

    Wii man and Xbox man. Still want a PS2 for God of War 1 and 2 but no PS3 in my mind.

    I've only owned two other Sony products ever so I wouldn't call myself a Sony loyalist. For my needs there was no other choice.

    I have a home theater in my basement with a 100" HD projector. I keep all my equipment in a closet and wire through the walls/ceiling.

    It had a bluetooth controllers-This allowed me to keep the PS3 in the closet

    It has HDMI-This was a must. I run it through my A/V reciever to my projector. At the time I bought the Ps3, Microsoft didn't offer it on the Xbox 360 and said it wasn't needed. They now offer an Elite with that funcianality that wasn't needed? It also HDMI 1.3 unlike others.

    BluRay-It was the best and also the cheapest BluRay player at the time. You couldn't buy one for less than $1,000.

    Wireless-Wireless is built into the unit. I don't have to run cat-5 from the 2nd floor

    Reliability-When there is a name for your problem...you've got a problem. "Microsoft’s over $1 billion charge for its new three-year warranty against the Red Ring of Death." When I bought my PS3 this was before the extended warranty and I could see from the number of posts that they had a big problem on their hand.

    Gran Turismo-Once it comes out I'll probably spend a good year just playing this one game.



    The Xbox 360 and Wii make sense for a lot of people (probably a lot more than the PS3) but there are some people who have more needs that the PS3 fills. It's kind of like comparing a Porsche 911, Corvette, and Honda Civic. Is the 911 a waste of money because it's more expensive and not as fast as a Corvette? Don't hate, just be happy with what you bought.

    Re: SONY PS3 FYI

    This type of thing happens all the time with products. Here are just a few examples.


    MAC OS/Windows/Linux-Linux/Apple users constantly slam Windows users but they don't take into account that a lot of people are happy with Windows. You rarely hear the downsides of Linux/Mac OS. Believe me, I've used all 3 and they each have their downsides.

    Ipod/Everything else-Everyone slams the Ipod but for some reason millions are happy with their purchase.


    Just a few more

    Domestic/Import cars
    Harley/Everything else
    Bose/Everything else
    Nike/Everything else
    Domestic beer/import
    Your state/My state
    You team/My team
    blah blah blah
