    Low cost and unique play are not the driving force behind Wii's success...it's the fun factor. I, like many gamers with jobs, could afford any of the three newest systems. I chose Wii because it was fun to play...something I hadn't felt about a console since SNES.

    PS3 has it's strengths, there's nothing wrong with the system. I just think that if a person wants to plunk down $600 for a "gaming computer", you're better off spending a bit more and building your own pc with better specs.
    Amen if your considering a PS3 you may as well just get a REAL PC. The car analogy was brilliant by the way. Fun is what matters, the Wii is just plain fun for most consumers.

    I own multiple Sony products, and I'm very pissed at the outright greed they are displaying on the PS3.
    You should be shot for saying that FF7 was a SONY game lol

    Yes Sony did claim this on their own website that the Blu-Ray was cheaper to produce. But thats besides the point here.

    Yes it indeed does. the PS3 wont become worthless per say...it will just be worthless for movies and other media. Developers/Publishers will still gladly make games for the PS3 on blu-ray discs. Sony will not admit their defeat if and when it happens but they WILL definitely still be making games for the PS3.

Because games are just starting to be released that actually fill a standard dual layer DVD and games are no where near close to filling a disc with blueray storage capacity. The blueray does not increase the performance of the system for games and that is why Microsoft didn't include an HD-DVD drive with the system, instead they gave their customers the option to get it later.
    resistance fall of man is 15gb. THe maker of metal gear solid four said he will have a hard time fitting the game on a blue ray disk. Learn some facts first.

    I dont know much about it, cause i dont really care bout blurays so ive never looked em up lol. If Sony wanted to be really 'cool' in there terms tho, they could get the new type of CD/DVD that holds over 1Million songs (not sure of size) but the player would boost the price up... several thousand... thousands :P (they've seriously got one of those tho, but of course not in production due to HUGE costs)
    $60 same as the 360. target had some games for $45 last week.

    Doyou want to know why standard blu-ray players cost 800$? Because it's a standard blu-ray player and it isn't sitting inside a video game console. Believe it or not, but using a video game console to play your movies isn't as "cool" as some people seem to think it is.

    Btw My local best buy has that toshiba hd-dvd player for $450.

    resistance fall of man is 15gb. THe maker of metal gear solid four said he will have a hard time fitting the game on a blue ray disk. Learn some facts first.
    Yet there is a widespread rumor that he is being pressured to put it out on the 360, and he himself has stated he would like to develope it for the wii.

    And Resistance is 16 gb....yet it isn't as good as a game for the 360 on a DL-DVD? Yes clearly it being 16gb means the game is better? Dreamcast had better graphics than the ps1...yet they both used cds.

    I want a DVD player to play my DVDs. a bluray player to play my bluray discs and an hd-dvd player to play my hd-dvds. I don't want a single device that does gaming and movies. Why? I want a product that excels at what it does, not a mediocre one that can do both at the expense of performance or quality. The PSX used CDs and most Nintendo 64 games used cartridges yet the n64 games for the most part looked a hell of a lot better. Those carts didn't store nearly the amount of data as the CDROM Sony used did either.

    Let me put it in the most simple terms for everyone in here.


    You all know that you are going to buy a PS3 eventually because it is the only system that will have Final Fantasy XIII and Metal Gear Solid 4.

    that is all that matters to me. I am actually sort of glad that they are not coming out for quite sometime. That gives sony more time to drop the price on the PS3
    Death to false metal!

    Hail Nintendo!

    I wouldn't jump the gun on saying MGS4 won't be on the 360.
