only 3 out of 10 game developers won't use piracy as an excuse and admit that the gamers just didn't like their game

He places the 360 in last place, when about 60% of console gamers around the world have one. Only about 20% have PS3's.

This age of gaming has made it easier for smaller companies to develop/publish games on their own, but added to that fact is the downside of inexperience, and shooting under the 'standard' for any game genre. Likewise, long-time developer/publisher studios have also sought to utilize smaller, lesser known (cheaper) studios to work on their game titles, effectively lowering the quality of otherwise 'could have been' blockbuster titles.

Even when a game has maintained in-house developement status, reductions in in-house workforces has also resulted in 'weaker' games.

No secret that Namco/Bandai, Konami, and Capcom, once giants, have significantly shot under previous quality margins with what used to be phenomenal game series'.

(Compiled with failing education standards, it's almost pointless to name game names now, with so many ignorant folk wanting to blindly defend a game series - even though they'll never have the ability, or capacity to understand, comprehend, or write up a full fledged review for the game/series they'd so blindly defend)

In any case, the bright get duller, that's just the way it is. That said, with the quickly changing world of the game industry, there's always 'someone' shining brighter.

Hopefully EA doesn't buy them out too.

Thats because 360 was out sooner. He's predicting that, with all the technology in the PS3 (cell processor, blu-ray, extra SPUs) that it will overtake the 360 once developers learn to use its advantages to their potential. Course, by 2011, MS may have the XBox 720 which could have all the abilities of the PS3.
I'm not being fan-boyish, I'm just stating the fact that PS3 has an advantage over XBox technologically speaking but the 360 has had more time to sell units and for developers to get used to using it.

I think that the PS3 might catch up, but by 2011 i dont think it will overtake the 360. The PS3 has yet to prove itself in terms of first party games. Until then, good technology or not, the PS3 will be behind the 360.
