    I cant wait till the Australia/New Zealand launch of the PS3 which has now been pushed back to March, By then the Wii will be well established - probably bundled with even more stuff for the same price as it is now..

    May even be available a few dollars cheaper

    Thats gonna hurt Sony

    Dont get me wrong, PS3 will be a damn good machine but the AUD cost will be prohibitive to alot of the market (at least in the first year of its release.)

    Pardon me if someone already mentioned this..

    Let's not forget to factor in the exponential drop in electronics prices on the whole since Atari.

    The dreamcast was more badass during it's time than the ps3 even is now. I mean online web browsing, downloadable game content, Virtual Memory Unit that you could actually play game stuff on.

    Yet it failed.

    I think it's a great comparison and prove that ps3 is not expensive.

    lol Sorry if you were miss informed but the main reason a I POD is half the price of a PS3 is size. I believe another person in this forum stated that "you wouldnt by a stand alone 100GB Memory Tower if you were traveling, instead you would buy the 2-10GB Flash Drive and for the same price. The PS3 is over priced.

    Would you rather pay $600.00 for a PS3 or mabey $399.99 without Blue-Ray. Or mabey with some other pointless feature that you dont need. Bottom line everyone in here that is buying and Video Game Consule. I buying it with one purpose in mind.... to play Video Games. And regardless of all the Bells and Whistles that are absolutley irrelevent to the Gaming Exp, we all want the Game Consule that will suite to our own interests. I can tell you I bought a 360 when they came out. Bought the Premium. SO i got the 12GB Hard Drive with it. Since I have had it I recentley deleted all my music, and to my surprise only had used something like 4.5GB. Was there a real need for the Hard Drive then??? I could have backed that information up on to a DVD/CD and uploaded it via Flash Drive when I needed to load a game. Now yes i know the convience factor was there with the Hard Drive, but the same can be said with the PS3. Why does it do all of this when we only need it to do this? What if Sony/Microsoft didnt spend so much time designing what else the system can do and just decided to do what we really want it to....Any one thing the Graphics would be Better?

They have no new big ideas, nothing that makes it stand out from its rivals.

    By the way, three of the consoles he mentioned (Neo Geo, 3DO and Saturn) were complete disasters, which should say something about the dangers of setting the cost of console too high.

    Amen !!

    He was making the exact opposite point actually.

Besides, complete with the Wii comes a game, controller and Nunchuck. With the PS3, you don't even get a game. Sure, Nintendo are already making money out of it, that's because they're playing the game, not trying to dominate it. More and more the industry has been colliding with the PC market. Who would pay for a PS3, when they can have a decent PC? At least in a PC, you can upgrade it. Wii on the other hand is purely a fun machine, and was meant only as that..
    But with homebrewers going the way they are, and people asking nintendo for a channel development system, the Wii could be so much more than just a fun machine, just imagine it, it can do practically anything you think of, and it's the comfortable interface that would grab people by the balls if they released it as a home-in-one machine. I for one know that i wouldnt like to scroll through an endless amount of possibilites using a "last-gen" controller. Would you?
