"A year after its launch, the PS3 is in a curious position. Note that I didn't say "bad" or "good." Sony has addressed complaints that the system is too expensive by releasing two more SKUs and eliminating features. The cheapest PS3 is now the same price as a launch-era 360 Premium. After six major updates with sprinklings of patches, the PS3 is a significantly better console now than it was a year ago. People can say a lot of things about Sony, but the company seems to be listening to its customers and the market a lot more than it did coming into launch."
