"There's no denying it: the PS3 had a rough launch. It shipped with only a handful of games, limited functionality, and a high price tag. Many people on community forums complained that the PS3 they had waited in line to obtain at launch was sadly dormant under their televisions collecting dust (and fingerprints) just weeks later. Waves of early adopters expressed buyer's remorse while the Sony Defense Force offered some simple advice: Wait.
Well, it's been eight months since launch, and things are finally beginning to look up for Sony's shiny black beast. Now that modern game consoles are designed to be jacked into the internet from the ground up, formerly bare bones feature sets can improve over time. And improve they have: the regularly released firmware updates have added an exciting new range of features which have enhanced the console's value as an entertainment hub significantly. Considering the ever-expanding functionality, the recent price drop, the success of Sony's Blue Ray format, and strong lineup of exclusive games coming out in the very near future (and beyond) and you've got an overall package that's considerably stronger than it was for the early adopters. Let's examine some of the reasons why it's the perfect time to pick up a PS3."
