I'm surprised its only 80 bucks.

either way it won't do that well, I can already see that it will have lots of response issues.

I wouldn't be so quick to call it just yet. Harry Potter might not be the most popular book in history, the biggest selling movie of all time or has made the author one of the richest women in the world, but I'm sure there's a handful of Harry Potter fans out there who might be slightly interested in reading another chapter written specifically for this.

Oh and like kinect and Wii were flawless pieces of tech? They both sold very well.

It all comes down to marketing.

I still have nightmares of this from Sony's E3 conference. IT JUST KEPT GOING.

DEFINITELY NOT....one for me , but I am pleased with the risk/diversity Sony have demonstrated this gen. Sometimes it is their undoing, but it's nice something so corporate, can feel so uncorporate In my most humble opinion.
