you just cant stop it
Man its great to see them in action actually having to work for top spot this time. Everything is so much better with this gen of ps3 doubt we'd have has much to be happy about without all the competition.

Never thought nintendo would come out so strong but that Wii is great stuff and whats more its bringing in ton and tons of first time console buyers. The 360 has a ton of rock solid titles and if M$ had put a hd and better than dvd support in every box woulda been my 1st choice. Still glad they didnt has Sony built a far more reliable product in the end. I mean if I would of been a first gen user getting rrod I'd prob be in jail for punching B.G in the head. Still now that they got a fixed sku out its not a bad buy especially if your one of the few die hard console fps fan.

However the ps3 is the best buy you get way more out of a 40/g ps3 than you do an elite. Whats more all that great stuff is on every box so devs can make b/r games and know they have a hd to use... This of course pays off in the games has were seeing the gap widen with every ps3 exclusive then their throwing in a free online service thats gonna be revolutionary free (to play) mmo games in the works etc. This is why Im betting they will be first place in 08 if not this xmas.

the main focus of a game consle should be the games. and for now weather u like it or not the 360 has all the best games and a better frame rate no less.

ps3 number 4 in hardware sales, 360 number 6= good news but 1 billion in losses... kinda sounds like the 360 too...

NDP results should make for an interesting read when they come out on the 9th (or 10th I think?)
