Imagine PS3 as a digital media center

Seattle Times columnist Brier Dudley had written off Sony PS3 as a flop, but it may be time to reconsider. One reason is Sony finally brought the price down to $400. Another interesting reason is the way Sony is accelerating plans to position the PS3 as a digital media center. In his Monday column, Dudley compares the PS3 as a home-entertainment hub to Microsoft's Xbox 360, Media Center Extender, and Windows Media Center.

Would have been useful to see the article compare the functionality, but instead it is the usual fluff about sales and marketing. Doesn't anyone talk about what these things actually do anymore, or are we so interested in the sales performance that we should just buy the stocks and not bother with the device ?

Analysts are the most idiotic people in the world....they talk out of their asses half the time about something flopping or failing....and when it does happen ..they revise their statements....such as...well what i meant to say was...trying to save face ..pathetic

The sales for the PS3 will go up more and more as time passes by, the only thing SONY needs to do is release more AAA titles for the system, market and advertise it more now as the holiday session approaches us.

"Imagine Ps3 as a Video Game player?"
Dude...I want you to think about this hard (HARDER)...I mean when you hear Playstation...what do you think about? I think about Sony has established the Playstation brand as a video game console for the past they want to come out and say...."it also can do this and that" I think there is no need for Sony to say that the PS3 is a video game's name says it...but is important to emphasize the other aspects of the PS3 which are the entertainment center aspect.
