Yes now its up to the marketing team

Sony will no doubt hit out with a new advertising campaign, but I think the best ads will be the price point itself. If you're looking at a flyer for your local BestBuy store, you see a hard drive less 360 for $200, a Wii for $250 and a fully equipped, Blu-Ray playing, 120 GB, free online, Divx playing PS3 for $299 - it's going to seriously make you stop and start thinking about best bang for your buck.

Seriously. Given the choice between a Wii and spending $50 more for a PS3 with BluRay player capabilities? How could any informed consumer pass up that deal?

I agree with you Darkride... BUT look at your last sentence again: "How could any informed consumer pass up that deal?"

INFORMED is the key word. I don't have the greatest confidence in most of the non-gaming public (ie. Moms and Dads) to actually be "informed". LOL

But, yeah... it's a no brainer for anyone who knows anything about this stuff.
