For the love of God tell me which of the other 2 consoles was not surrounded by a lot of hype around launch. I am tired of people using hype as a benchmark for success.
And measuring success by the first few months of a consoles life.
Especially a console that supposedly has a lifespan of 10 years.
Honestly these writers really need new material, why don't they use some ingenuity and get some real insider information for us.
Go get us some Halo3 or KZ2 photos.
Tell us if immersion has shown any new controller models to Sony as yet.
Go get us the dirt!
