DFC Intelligence's David Cole believes Ken Kutaragi's strategy for PS3 has put the PlayStation brand in a tight spot, with little room for movement. He says Wii and Xbox 360 are likely to make huge gains. Full report - including stats, charts and strong opinions at next-gen.biz
i read this on gamespot.com close to a month ago. just another attempt by the anti-Sony loyalists to diminish the PS3's popularity.
I hate PS3 but i think it will still sell, unfortunately, because of the strong brand name. In Europe, 360 is big but Sony is God.
Living in the UK myself, Sony is immensely more popular over here, including Germany and Italy. I think the 360 will lead the US market, Canada markets though.
This is no inquirer piece, a very interesting, well thought out read.
It's a pc, it's a blu-ray player...Sony, what I want is a game console.
i think Sony is trying to bridge the gap between the video game consumers and the electronic media consumers with their PS3.
no longer will video game consoles be considered just a "toy". now it's a media center for everything. this is indeed a big risk, but this is where the future of video gaming should be in my opinion.
i know that not everyone will agree, but personally, this PS3 works well for me since i am a hometheater/media head. i spent a lot for my big screen hdtv, audio system, etc. and $600 for a "PC"/gaming-console/ blu-ray player is a bargain for me. i might be in the minority though.
This article seems to be right on the money. Nintendo is on its way back. This is really what this industry needs right now. A back to basics approach.
