Sony fired the latest salvo in the console war last week with a chart that spelled out, from Sony's perspective, the value of the three current videogame consoles.
Shockingly, Sony found that PS3 was the better value by $50-$100 compared to Xbox 360. The market-leading Wii, with its $250 price tag, undercuts PS3, but according to Sony, Wii "lacks enhanced features" like media playback and high-definition visuals. So the value supposedly isn't there.
Before EDGE picks apart just how effective this sort of marketing tactic actually is, let's revisit Sony's chart to see the company's view on which console really does offer the best "value." (Sony used the entry-level package of all three consoles.)
