People predicted worse but not bad for a console thats alot more over there in money. Hopefully future games will move more units in the future.

Sony expected a rough start, no console has not had game droughts or people not talking negativly off a launch.
the pieces are being set.
Sonys not losing money for fun.

they expected this round to be a cakewalk simply because they are "sony". they are learning otherwise, and consumers are benefitting from the competition.

it's quite nice:)

And it was well worth it. The only people who complain about PS3's are people who dont have one.

Sony have it easy, since pretty much all consoles do great during launch. The real test will come in the following weeks and month or 2.

The real test is the next few years, not weeks or months, years.
