ZDNet: (80gb) PS3 Product Review

There's general agreement that Sony stumbled out of the gate with the PlayStation 3. Months of intense hype were followed by a late launch (fully a year after the Xbox 360) and a staggering $600 price tag for the deluxe model. Even worse, the PS3 didn't have any real must-have exclusive titles, and despite the power of its vaunted Cell processor, multiplatform games from third-party developers didn't look appreciably better than the respective titles on the 360...

8.6 out of 10

noone looks at these review to make a purchase they look at price and games

I don't think its a good review when they still say the price is $600 and the article just came out two days ago.

Sony put the hardware mack hand down... Ive never had a problem with the 60gb and firmware updates are bringing some much improved features all the time. The 07 line up was aight and 08 line-up is gonna be 10x better. So everything is good , good IMO.

Are so good, they become universally acclaimed games.

That goes for all platforms.

You're talking about bias? Wow, you're full of it.

I own a ps3 and a 360, and as a game machine, the 360 is better than the ps3 imo.

Also, I'm going to stomp the next game store employee that tries to "push" their agenda on me.

HarryEtTubMan3627d ago

With everything the PS3 has to offer hardware wise how is it not higher than that? It can do EVERYTHING the 360 can't and more.

There is a huge bias in the industry and media, man. I mean huge. anyone with common sense knows the Ps3 is the best system available. Unfortuneatly consumers are idiots and the media is paid, gamestop employess "unlike the one's I employ" are uninformed... These are the reasons why Sony has a huge blemish on their success.

Sony has to do 10x'x as much to get even a little bit back. It's unfair, but what can you do other than stop people from buying the other system when given the opportunity to do so. I push Ps3 so hard at my store. When someone wants a xbox 360, I push a ps3 off onto them like you wouldn't believe. It works sometimes, but me alone isn't enough to change the perspective. Consumers are going to have to figure it out on their own. all there is to it.
