Can Sony hang onto its top-dog status, given the many criticisms of PS3 so far? Here are the ten key factors that will determine whether Sony's console can win.

WIll Sony do it? WIll they get the buzz back? Place your votes here. Agree equals YES, disagree equals NO.

Almost neck and neck so far...come on more votes

Sony is good at getting the BUZZ... I don't think this will be difficult for them.

I agreed with most of the points in the article in the list, except for one.
I don't think blue ray is something to worry about. IMO blue ray was a good feature to include.
I think the better question for Sony is was it worth the extra wait (1year) to fall behind in sales??? (speaking of consoles)

Sony has been good about getting that buzz, but everytime they do, it hasn't lasted much. Ofcourse it has left a sour tastes in many mouths.. but your right about the blue-ray thing.

I guess you could say, was it to MS advantage also to launch the Xbox360 so early without an HD-DVD drive, where they would of risk lagging behind sony head to head. Then again it's a good thing they didn't add it, since MS did admit they will support whatever technology that becomes logical. Only time will tell if adding Blue-Ray, was the smartest decision on Sony's part.

Since I've had all the consoles, and don't care for brand loyalty..all these points are well taken...
