    Ok. I wanted to show everyone an article I wrote over at clubskill:

    Ever since the announcement of a $600 PS3, Sony’s brand name had started its slow fall into oblivion. The executives didn’t realise (well, I guess; there is no other reason) that they were indeed saying what they were. They were destroying all credibility of the PlayStation brand slowly and surely. High prices, loud mouths; this gaming division had messed up the epic levels of hype and potential that the Playstation 3 held. I knew that they were going to have to find some way to attract loyal customers to the brand as the Xbox 360 went from a flop to extremely successful. Microsoft played their cards exactly how they wanted, gaining developer after developer. The year-long head start thrusted the Xbox brand into consumers' minds, leaving only a lingering ‘PlayStation Two’ memory behind. Sony needed to catch up, and fast.

    I should have known, PS2 was the most most popular system of the time, had the greatest games... Now what? PS3 isn't appealing at all to people I guess.

    I read it, you have good points, sony is coming back [slowing]..

    I honestly do not like sony that much, but I do own a PS3..

    I feel either the 360 or the Wii are going to win the console war since the PS3 will do a lot better in years to come, when they can take full advantage of the PS3.

    i work at a movie gallery with a game store. i honestly still have a hard time selling ps3 even after they went to 499, people just don't want to spend that much. expecially in my small town. i sell a lot of wii's, but i'd really like to sell some ps3's. i know i want one. the ps3 in my opinion has a great future though. i have faith that it will grow.

    I don't mod much anymore, but I do give good game advice.

    the PS3 does have a brighter future than the 360. If you have read any articles on the PS3 and it's future, you will have read that developers are slowly growing a fondness for the PS3. The thing that excites me the most is the shear power that is inside the machine. The new Ratchet and Clank game looks amazing, and it only uses a 1/3 of the processing power. Once developers get familiar with the system and come out with great ideas to use the PS3's power, there will definitely be some "must have" games. I plan on getting a PS3 maybe in the summer, or with my tax return.

    hell yeah dude i want a ps3 so bad...i'm so addicted to warhawk and i know once final fantasy 13 comes out people will start to change their minds...plus it's only 400 now, when you consider everything that's a pretty damn good deal. sure you only get 40 gigs but there hasn't been a reason for 80 gigs yet...i doubt anyone has all 80 gigs filled up or even close too that.
    you get a blu-ray player, the most powerful system on the market (besides some pc's), and free online.
    Trust me, if I could make love to my PSP...I would...

    Hahaha, I doubt it.

    I think Sony is going to be a distant third for a long while (if not until the end), but it won't be crucified nearly as much (at the end of its lifetime) as XBOX1 was. Like I said in the article, Sony is pushing the potential of the PS3, and it has it. It just doesn't have results.......yet.

    360 will remain dominant, but the PS3 will gain some market share (enough for it to be profitable)
    Today has been the most beautiful day I've ever seen.

    defiantly agree with the article. ps3 has been gaining ground since they pushed out a few decent exclusives. its not enough to take this years holiday console war, but possibly next year. 360 came out first, so it had the biggest lead going into the console wars. sony has to match the 360s popularity then overtake it if they expect to succeed this time around. 360 has the games and the online play at the moment, so its the place to be. the future is anything but clear cut at this point in time

    I think the fact that Sony still markets the PS2 shows that Sony knows it will still take time for people to accept (or even afford) a PS3.

    How the fuck is the console war already over? You obviously don't know what you are talking about.

    Pretty much...

    Great article.
    I don't tend to get too caught up in the PS36Wii wars, but I totally agree with what you said.
    I can only imagine it as "nowhere to go but up" for Sony.
    I do still think that the PSP has hardly any good games at all.
