Can the PS3 be saved?

From the article: -- "The PS3 hasn't performed as well as expected. In fact, since E3 last year, not much has actually gone Sony's way. There was the removal of features, loss of exclusives, extreme price and severe supply constraint… and that's just leading up to the launch. Once November 17th rolled around, there were people camping outside of Best Buy to get PS3s so that they could scalp them on eBay for extreme prices, and that worked for a while. Then buyers got sick of paying for a system with one semi-desirable game, a blu-ray player with questionable usefulness and a really bad PS2 emulator. They're not the only one. Gabe Newell, Co-founder and Managing Director of Valve Software, had this to say about the PS3:

"The PS3 is a total disaster on so many levels. I think it's really clear that Sony lost track of what customers wanted and what developers wanted. I'd say, even at this late date, they should cancel it and do a 'do over.' Just say, 'This was a horrible disaster and we're sorry and we're going to stop selling this and stop trying to convince people to develop for it.'"

Even after all that, it's still possible for the PS3 to turn it all around. With that in mind, I decided to try and figure out a way for the PS3 to make a solid recovery, so I started sending emails and making calls. I talked to N'Gai Croal of Newsweek, Chris Baker of Wired and several others in my quest to see what could change and bring Sony back from this black hole of negative buzz. Here's what we came up with." --

the end of ps3? REALLY? it's been said before, but here it is again. The system has only been out for a couple of months, and hasn't done that well, why does everyone assume that it is doomed? No one can really predict what will happen later, maybe the price will drop. People should stop bickering all the time about the same thing, just shut up and watch. If a year from now, the sales haven't picked up, fine. But until then nothing is determined.

snowball effect...

when consumers hear that PS3 isn't selling they start to think, "well hey what if it fails??". Than that continues to catch on and so on. But still PS3 failing is quite possible but I don't see it happening.

I don't want to get rid of sony because of the competition they'll bring with PS4.

My favorite quote:
"The 4th dimension really IS time, because Sony keeps telling people that the system is only going to start delivering at some distant point in the future."
