    see the US launch then tell me sony supplied enough ps3 and the guys that got shot what sony should've done is released about half of their stock, then sold the rest on ebay themselves for upwards of $1500. then they actually would've made money of their console.

    I cant believe you brought that up. That whole incident was a simple act of robbery and frustration at the lines and price, it had nothing to do with the supply i believe.

    i wasn't saying that the shootings had to do with the short supply, i think my punctuation messed that up. what i was trying to say is that people got shot trying to get one to put on ebay when sony could have easily done that themselves.

    Gotcha. That would have been smart, but bad at the same time. Could you imagine the press demonizing sony if they did that, it would be worse than it is now.

    and? just because they were ebayed, doesn't mean they got it for free... they had to buy it in the first place, thus it was a sale. completely relevant.

    While I won't stick up for what he says, I will say that this is a Wii site. The PS3 section isn't supposed to be exclusive to be positive about the PS3. PS3 sites are there for that. Afterall, the threads on this site are for the community of people, namely whom like the Wii (hence Wiichat). If this were a purely multiformat site, then you'd be right. But this isn't. It's built for the Wii community and as such, shouldn't be used as a ground for attacking anyone whom dislikes a competitor. If however, someone were attacking the Wii (something that we all hold dear, what with us being on wiichat and all), then that'd be out of order. Someone like Wii&PS3 is like this and is completely out of order all the time, as he's not actually part of the community.

    Oh, and also, I'm sure you meant to say Don't bother coming into the PS3 section, rather than forum.

    I'm sure if someone on PS3chat started up about how the PS3 sucks, they'd have the same kind of response.

    Although to be fair, Nfanboy, at least give justifications for your hatred. Even if people don't agree, at least you'd have a leg to stand on.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Actually its a Wii Forum. This is just the PS3 subsection and since its a part of the WII Forum anyone can come and post in it can't they? If you want to talk with other sony fanboys go to a PS3 forum and spout some more balone about how great your graphics are or w/e it you guys talk bout there.

    I can guarantee you that if there were more Wiis, Nintendo would still hold the record in UK. Congrats to Sony but it's not time to break out the champagne, especially with reports coming in telling of PS3s just lying around.

    PS: Microsoft suffered from massive shortages of 360s the first couple of months it was out.

    I was just at the mall. PS3s continue to sit there. They told me they have so many, they take up their backroom space. Record sales? In what? Denial?
