He has a point with what he says. The problem is, Sony pushed the envelope too hard.


No, nintendo has pushed the envelope softly. SOny has done what is expected, produce an amazing next gen system.


I'm not talking about quality. I'm talking about quantity and price. 600 bucks makes my wallet empty... and a lot of other people can't find the hardware itself.
But I love the PS3.

If you just look at graphics, maybe not, but in terms of gameplay it's radically different from the PS2.
