Sony's PS3 poised to grab limelight this year

Reuters writes: "If 2006 was the year of the Xbox 360 and 2007 was the year of the Wii, 2008 is shaping up to be PlayStation 3's turn in the spotlight, as it stokes demand in the $19 billion computer gaming industry with some hotly awaited game titles.

Exclusive PS3 titles like puzzle-solving, community-based game "LittleBigPlanet", production improvements that will give Sony room to cut prices, and the recent victory of its Blu-ray technology in the high-definition DVD format war, should drive demand for the games console."

we'll see what happens but the tide seems to be shifting in ps3's favor :-D

Yeah this year should put PS3 far on top of the 360. Probably will even out monthly sales with the Wii too.

2 months into 2008 and still all quiet on the Sony front. I'm not too sure it'll be such a big bang for PS3 in 2008 as everyone is saying.

you don't read this site. to stay in the gamer zone i will make the comment that it seems that ps3 will have a very big year, from hardware into software.

Blu-ray winning the HD format war was a huge bang for the PS3.

It will sell consoles and it is giving the PS3 some positive press.

Thats a good jump start if you ask me.

Ken Kutaragi's vision is aligning into place for the PS3.

As a gamer and an owner of PS3, Blu-ray winning has done nothing to fill my appetite for games I'm afraid. Maybe I'm wrong to say its quiet on the Sony front since Sony has a direct interest in the HD format war. I should have said quiet on the PS3 front thus far, and I think that's a fair statement from my visits to the gaming shop.

People need to just get used to theidea of the PS3 winning from here on out.

I still dont understand how people wrote them off, look at their track record, this is Sonys turf and they dont like to share.
