    Playstation brand influence

    Hey here is the story:
    I was over at a mate's house a while back and we were playing on his Wii (cause he got it first) and suddenly his uncle (non-gamer) walked in.
    He asked us if we were playing on "one of those 360 things" and we said no, THIS was much better.
    But before we could answer, he laughed and said "oh you mean its one of those Playstation Wiis".
    To this we were simply shocked.
    How the name 'Playstation' has influenced the gaming industry to the point that people are ignorant of other superior brands (Nintendo).
    So the reason I started this was to hear if any of you guys experienced a similar or a more shocking story. If yes then feel free to share it with the rest of us.

    wow, that is interesting. You can understand it, especially if they're not a gamer, but you still kinda wanna slap them

    I remember back when the PS1 was released I heard a couple people refer to it as a "Nintendo Playstation". Seems the tables have turned a bit

    I'm sure they'll turn back!

    Well, Playstation2 Being the most-bought/most-well known Of Gamecube Xbox And PS2 So they think of it as the only one. (Silly people) Hopfully though with the wii being ontop atm and with a short easy to remember name the tables probably will turn.

    actually my parents thought the Wii was an Apple product. I guess because it is white like their iPods. yeesh!

    if colour is all it takes to be an apple product then I drive an Apple iHatchback!

    i think personally ps3 is rubbish...its actually way behind if you think about it..
    its expensive!
    n has draw backs and there nothing special about apart fro graphics which u can get with a 360
    my favs r the 360 and wii but i chose the wii in the end but the wii is the best the only thing is that the graphics arent just as good..but u dont need graphics to have an awesome game! and its will be amazing once wii online gets fixed or wotever...cant wait for online games
