Based on reports of what's circulating through the blogosphere, video consumers are mighty dissatisfied with Blu-ray and gamers are unhappy that PS3 has upped the price of the console by including Blu-ray. Then of course, there's all of those stories about how Sony couldn't meet its production targets. In 2007, when PS3 stocks are plentiful, they'll eat their words.
The few hundred thousand of console units Sony has brought to market in the US and Japan so far have sold out within minutes. The Japanese games market leader believes it will starting biting huge chunks out of the new generation consoles market once it is able to get sufficient supplies into stores.
Meanwhile, an under reported fact is that the biggest selling console on the market last month was not the Wii, PS3 or Xbox 360 but the PS2...
the Aussies are so civilized. Hard to imagine some used to call it Devil's Island. lol
On a sidenote, it's so funny PS2 outsells everything. If the brand Sony would have some many problems and such a bad reputation, the PS2 would never be as successful. It doesn't have anything to do with it beeing cheaper, Xbox and Gamecube are even more cheap, but both consoles are selling a $hit. It looks like the haters are exaggerating it and it's not what the main public and average consumer thinks. As I said PS2 proves that and just wait for Sony to ship enough consoles. Die crooked MS with your pathetic fanboys, but please Sony, don't kill the nice Wii with it's civilised fans.
with the flame war...
Best buy now has HD DVD players (Toshiba I think) for $399. Their prices are falling faster than Blu-Ray's.
This is like a feel good , "keep your chin up kid" article for the as Enforcer of His Delusions would say "pathetic" Sony Fanboys. Don't worry guys " The sun will come out tomorrow."
It's pretty much over , though. Keep on dreaming though. At least you have those.
Edit: I am enthralled with this article. It is like the author is putting his arm around te battered PS fans and letting them know it will be OK. I like how he tries to make a point that 160'000 consoles sold in a day in a nation with a population of 300,000,000 and that means doom for all naysayers.
