Hey everyone, my name is Dedicated to Gamers. I know we're all excited about the next generation of consoles but I wanted to bring everyone back down to earth and talk about the Xbox 360, the Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii.
Now, these are just my personal predictions, but I'll do my best to support them with facts. I really think that Sony is going to go for another landslide victory. There are several reasons why I think that.
Okay, this is a pretty big deal. I've seen a lot of comments about the hardware power between the PS3 and the 360. Yeah, the 360 has a more powerful GPU. So what? Yeah, the 360 has a unified pool of RAM. So what? The PS3 has The Cell inside! This thing is gonna give the PS3 some crazy power.
I know a lot of people are complaining about the PS3's price. I see all the internet pictures with "599 US dollars" on it. Yes, the PS3 is $100 more (it's unfair to say $200 more because there's a basic model, too), but think of what you're getting. Not only are you getting The Infinite Power of the Cell™ with PS3, but you're also getting a Blu Ray player, too! Yes, it's unproven technology, and yes Sony is forcing you to purchase it, but just think of the FUTURE! Besides, price won't matter because...
Have you not heard of such a thing as brand loyalty? C'mon. This is SONY! It doesn't matter how expensive it is. Everyone is going to trade their Xbox 360 in to EB Games and Gamestop to get a PS3. Are you not aware of the PS1 and the PS2? Sure, Sony made a few arrogant comments, but the general public doesn't care about that. All they care about is that Playstation brand! You think they'll switch to 360? Yeah right! Think about that huge PS2 library of games that they've built up for years! You think they'll be so quick to abandon their games when the next generation comes around? Yeah right!
Okay, so some people are remarking that PS3 is going to lag behind in the number of games because it's launching a year later than the 360. Um, have you SEEN Resistance: Fall of Man? End of conversation. There are so many amazing games coming out for PS3, it's not even funny. The TimeSplitters guys are making Haze (footage looks so sick), Square Enix is making FF13 a PS3 exclusive, and of course we'll be getting Gran Turismo 5 in the next year or two. I'm just pointing out that even though the libraries seem unbalanced NOW doesn't mean that they will stay unbalanced. Sony is...Sony, and they have so much money from the PS1 and PS2 that they could just buy up a ton of studios if they wanted. Let me repeat that: Sony has so much money and they're investing so much money into gaming right now that Microsoft has no chance to succeed. It'll be just like the Xbox 1...they only sold 25 million and the PS2 is still selling strong.

This transcript has been edited with helpful numbers, in case it wasn't painfully obvious what I was implying.
We've been down this road before. We've seen these boasts before. I've heard "price doesn't matter" before. I've heard "brand loyalty is king" before. It's funny to see companies repeat the mistakes of others, but it's even funnier to hear gamers parrot the exact same talking points from nearly a decade ago.
