Meh the Playstation 3 isn't all that great. I played it at a friends house it sucks in gameplay and online stuff all of the Playstation games aren't even good compaired to x-box also their "exclusive" games are being lost to Wii, thats right they lost a few games to the wii, and x-box. They should pack it in and just stick to making movies and camera's leave consoles to the pros; Nintendo cause they are 100% gaming business and Microsoft cause they build the PC's.
Also! Sony's "in-house" games sucks the only good games on their systems is final fantasy.

@ Frederick: Your forgetting something- they don't have Final Fantasy anymore. Or at least exclusively. Final Fantasy 13 is coming to 360, not just PS3.

@fredrick

couple problems with that. 1 the ps3 right now is doing better then the ps2 did. second the wii is fine and all if you are their target audience of 5-10 years of age where xbox is fine and all if you wanna get ripped of on features like no wireless internet (unless you pay more.) no rechargeable controllers (unless you pay more) proprietary HDD which cost 3 times what others do you have to pay for online service and your only games with playing are gears and halo (which yes i have played and beat both) are ok but not that great

Microsoft don't make PC's, they write programs and operating systems for them.

soon as the wii hits that price mark in Aus i am definatly getting one. wii for quick gaming (i.e brawl, mario kart etc.), PS3 for hardcore online + blu-ray movies.
also frederick is a wank lol, he doesnt know anything lol..

the ps2 is still selling so it'll be more than 140m until it dies out (and since games are still being made it won't anytime soon)
however i highly doubt the ps3 will reach 150m anyway...

"[...]otherwise why are we in this business?”

that's what i wanna know, stick to old-gen or tvs ok? (heck, my tv and my pc screen are made by sony, lol)

oh and ffxiii coming to the 360 = R.I.P ps3, even though the gameplay sucks

@fredick-are you *bleep*ing crazy!

sure nintendo are a 100% gaming busisness but that means they rely on the systems and games to make a profit!

microsoft make the software and the xbox and the xbox 360 (and if you remeber correctly the xbox original failed terribly last gen). so what ios wrong with sony making HDTVS,camcorders,laptops etc

and also how can the ps3 suck in gameplay!? most of the ps3 games are on the 360 so really your saying that the 360 sucks asswell!

personally i think you need to be shot
in the face
with a 12 gauge shotgun...

erm this article is rather stupid - i think alot of people have bought the ps3 as a blu ray player mainly - especially since it won the format war. besides, a stand alone blu ray player costs more than the console, which can be used for internet browsing, streaming, video and music playing etc, much more for your money. So to the article writer, you're clearly loaded to be paying over the odds for a standalone player.

At this point in time there is no major difference between games on xbox360 and ps3, it will be in 2-3 years time when xbox360 grpahics are surpassed by the potential of the ps3. I imagine the release of another xbox in the ps3's lifetime, just to keep up with the graphical performance alone.Of course this is my opinion so dont go hating! But i just think once developers invest time and money into the platform games will become more appealing on ps3.
Many people see the ps3 as an investment for current and future gaming - a safe one too


@ Frederick - leave it to the pro's? i think sony owned last gen consoles bud

to everyone: just get over it! buy what bloody console you want for whatever reason you want! and besides - look at burnout paradise, developed on ps3 and ported to xbox created one of the best looking and seamless games out atm. in this case everyone wins...whats the problem

oh and on a side note - ffxiii on xbox? yay delays! lol but seriously - how many discs will that bitch need?!?! haha peace

Question is when is next gen XBOX coming out? Probably for NY 2010 and it may be a Sony killer. People will be getting rid of their outdated PS3 when that happens.
Blue ray is waste of space since most people will be downloading their HD content by that same time.

Until the gray market for PS3 games doesn't pick up, the sale of hardware will remain stagnant. Once these cheaper copies of games start comining in the market the sales will jump.

Totally agree with you Pete
As for GB, hey if the HD content is downloadable, i can also download them on my PS3. I don't need to throw the blu-ray player.
