If the PS3 trojan horse strategy enables Sony to win the format war, will it have been worth the damage inflicted on its game console business?

Bigmac5734398d ago

has been done to their console 5 years from now when gamers crave the best graphics and games. PS3 has the games, the format, and soon will have the users.

Like what, HD Movies at an affordable price and 5 times more storage capacity for developers?

How do you figure that one? Blue ray and ps3 are the most expensive, and quality is the same as the competition. The games on 360 have just as good of graphics and gameplay and in some cases better that the ps3.
HD DVD has the same picture quality and a better interactive experience, with much less cots in both cases.
Thats just the way it is.
