Mainstream media isn't so kind to Sony's machine.
As part of their year-end roundup, TIME magazine picked five pieces of hype the media (including themselves) fell for in 2006 that didn't live up to their claims. We'll be reading plenty about the unexpected bombing of Snakes on a Plane, but TIME also singled out PlayStation 3, believing Sony's handling of the launch is going to cost them the leader position this generation.
"TO PLAY'S THE THING
The big story in computer games this year was HOW TO BLOW A HUGE LEAD, by Sony. Its PlayStation 2 was the champ in the last round of the console wars. This time Sony bet on a chip called the Cell and a disc format called Blu-ray. They're probably awesome, but how would anybody know? The PS3 is hideously expensive -- it goes for up to $600 -- and Sony manufactured only a piddling few hundred thousand for the U.S., fewer for Japan. Plus it's hard to write games for; the launch titles were lame. You know you're in trouble when you get beat by something called a Wii."
Someone call the fire department because Sony just got burrrrrrned.
I thought this was pretty interesting..
<= All your Wii are belong to Mii
360 is awsome,but the Wii is just so cuddly!
Dude I posted this same thread and it's directly below it. Nice making a double thread of something.
If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.

It's not yet been released in the UK but several shops are sleling in manchester for £600-700 i managed to have a go in one store and i wasn't fully impressed but i can't complain because it's still a buetiful peice of gaming
Doesn't surprise me that the ps3 doesn't live up to it. It is a TAD expensive, but i will see what it is like on its uk release.
