Gotgame: When the PlayStation 3 released in the United States in November of 2006, I was excited with all the possible applications of the system. The original price point of $500 was too much to invest and I didn't jump into next-gen until June of 2007. Since then, the PS3 has become more than just a gaming system; it's a media center. What should PlayStation fans expect for the future?
It's obvious Microsoft gained a substantial lead releasing the Xbox 360 in 2005. The loss of true exclusive titles, especially of some long PlayStation-only series, caused a lot of grief with each press release from big gaming conventions. In some ways, Sony told its supporters that they weren't interested in throwing cash around to secure titles like Microsoft is doing, especially for DLC.
