Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I heard it to the grapevine that Sony will be cutting their home entertainment monster price from $600 down to $500 very, very shortly.
Sony is admitting weakness in the market share. The 360 is doing well, as most industry analyst predicted, but also many did not expect Microsoft to be doing this well this early (thanks to a "god-like" online feature and gaining support from big 3rd party developers). Nintendo is making a comeback, and be honest, no one really expected it.
If anything, didn't most everyone expect Sony to dominate again this time around figuring the paramount success of the PS2? The 360 has been out for almost 2 years now, still $400 going back to launch date. The PS3 hasn't been out for even a year, and they're dropping a $100 off the top, already?
As I've already stated before, don't write off Sony just yet. Maybe they haven't played all their cards, or perhaps there's something else up their sleeve, but things are looking quite grim for them at the present. I originally planned on buying all three platforms (360, Wii and PS3), but now I don't know. With 85% of "big name" games being on both consoles (360 & PS3), why bother spending unnecessary cash on a PS3? Oh plus, the Playstation Network should be renamed Garbage Network. XBOX-Live is the pinnacle of online gaming.
Yeah, I still won't buy it. Can anyone dispute the claims that the technology wasn't even that much better? I mean that's what I heard, that the XBOX360's graphics and whotnot blew it away.
I think I might miss out on the whole "next gen" systems because I refuse to pay so much for the PS3, and I won't buy an XBox360 because I refuse to support Microsoft.
As for the Wii, I don't want to work that hard to relax. All that jumping around and wand waving? I'll go outside and work on my cars, or play b-ball.
If they lowered the PS3 around $200-$300 and started making some good games for it, I might consider buying one.
I'm still waiting for the Game Cube price to drop to $50 so I can finally try Twilight Princess, Windwalker, and the Master Sword (Ocarina of Time).
ok you are just a straight up broke ass , i mean gamecube? its like what 75$ right now? wow
