No - but my point is that the people who did buy it were paying $700 or more for it - and including inflation, that's a hell of alot more than the $600 that this year's PS3 costs.

Sorry - I don't consider a game that was supposed to be released over a year ago for a *last* gen system as a strong launch title.


Fair enough. As far as I am concerned, it is Zelda (and I have never played a Zelda game I did not like), and it has been delayed a hell of a lot. Some companies have track records where their delays add up to stellar games in the long run, and Nintendo is one of them.

I am not holding anything back, I have a Wii pre-ordered because I personally feel that it is worth it for the price. If it were $300+ I would just play some kiosks and maybe a friend's system. But I really want to try out these controls.

And on the issue of full disclosure, I have never liked Madden. I still feel ESPN was the best football game I ever played and wish it were sitll around. But for some reason I really want to try out a football game with the Wii's controls.

Finally, when I pre-ordered I thought I was in a situation where I would only have until Feb. or March that I would be able to play. Otherwise I almost always wait for a price drop in systems. This is no longer the case, but I still think Zelda makes the system worth it for now, and I will see how Red Steel gets reviewed.

After reading Gamespot's PS3/360 side by side comparison I think it is a good idea to wait for a Sony price drop.

Everybody says the Wii is dirt cheap - yet it's $279 in Canada. Plus games and controllers. So - $350-$400.

That's more than my PS2 ever cost.

Ok, then a PS3 with games and controllers can cost near $1,000. That's far more than the 360, Wii, Master System, TG16, SNES, NES, and Gensis ever cost as well.

Uh, wait ... the PS2 cost $299 when it first came out. So, it in fact cost MORE than the Wii did.

The side-by-side comaprison was hilarious. And more than likely, a bunch of Sony fanboys will jump all over them about making it up.

Add in a weak first-release game lineup and shady online strategy and about the only advantage the PS3 has right now is, no power brick!

I am a little stumped as to why Sony believes that their new system will replace the personal computer. Maybe they are just talking out of their asses to garner more press.



i like sony and the playstations and im sick of the anti sony threads but even i think that statement is stupid. There is no way any console system will ever replace a pc.
