The PS3 Conundrum

Sony's Next-Gen console is without a doubt, in the spotlights of every website with a Technology section lately.

Rumors about price cuts, leaked slim versions and a supposed overall failure of the platform are flying at the speed of light over the internet. How did it come to this? A while ago, the PS3 was at the bottom of every sales graphs and tops, and no one seemed to care why.

"Ok ok so what, Sony has amazing hardware.. amazing games... great feautres but its TOO expensive so.. (complain since launch daily articles, sony is DOOMED) blah blah blah failure blah blah"

(Price drop is happening)

"Well... uh...(papers)"

Now everyone has to find something else to justify the Anti-PS3/Sony/Japan attitude. I'm guessing:

- Price isn't low enough Sony, we said price drop. We meant Free sony!

- Slim Isn't Slim enough.

- Too little Too late. <-- My money is on this one. Until sales prove it, which gives plenty of time to drive hits to your website about how Sony is still a failure.

It will be funny to see what the community/media does to still hate sony after the price cut. After admitting that its only problem is price. Literally.

Guys, I think the best way to prevent sites like this to gain cheap hits with garbage articles, is that the first one that read the article do a copy/paste of the most relevant parts. The idea is discourage low quality/inflammatory writings, reducing its number of hits.

Indeed,and not referring to the 'platform' in question.
The 'panic merchants' continue to beckon from shadowy corners of the internet,peddling their wares.

the ps3 has not been the worst selling console since launch the 360 has.even when all you guys are talking about the ps3 and how bad its doing the ps3 has been keeping pace with the 360 and is twice the price. i dont see how that is the worst selling of the 3. Then the ps3 has already surpassed the xbox and game cube from last generation. let talk abou tall the things that sony did do that no one ever seems to mention but is quick to jump down sony throat because they want a price cut.
sony introduced how many different techs this gen. lets see full game digital downloads although you could do this on the pc . sony is the first console to do this.
cell processor this thing has been used in everything lately and probably will be in the ps4 reformed someway.
blu ray this will become the new format, although digital distribution is on the rise the mass market isnt on to it and it will be years before thy do.
sucessfully sell a last gen system that competes with the competition next gen while you next gen is selling faster than the competitor.
drop the production cost more than half in 3 yrs.when sony decides to drop the ps2 the price of a ps3 will probably be 200 making way for the ps4 which will probably be 500 or 400 dollars.

if you look at what sony has done from a business perspective it makes way more sense then what you are trying to say.
Because these articles about sony failing and its's over and their broke is f1cking annoying.

I DONT KNOW HOW TO GET THIS THROUGH PEOPLE'S HEAD IT'S NOT LIKE SONY DIDN'T KNOW THAT THEY WERE SELLING THIS SYSTEM AT A LOSS FROM THE START. SELLING A SYSTEM AT A LOSS DOESNT = PROFIT. SO WHY IS IT A BIG DEAL THAT THEY ARE LOSING MOENY RIGHT NOW. The important thing is that they have positioned themselves in the right spot to make up from m$ jumping the gun in 05 with the 360.
they have a new tech that can be usd in other product the cell.
they own the format that will be used for yrs to come in all disk media.
they re realeasing the best titles on the market.
plus they are developing a psn network with all product and continually bringing new updates to their systems.
they introduced a another new tech digitally portable downloadable games first system to ever do this psp go.

Sony is starting to not just look like a hardware company but a software company in the makings also.they are showing that their products are superior to their competitiors and that they are learning to get software that is exceeding the competition.
looking at the game from sony. you have turned to company around and just need to make a few more steps to kill the game.
think if at cologne if sony drops cross game chat in a update with a price drop even skype. The tides have turned hold on to something cause here come a tidal wave.
