What do you mean? The system was fine, though the launch games were fairly weak, like the wii's. Sony did a good job at getting the console out there, but like the psp, the console evolves over time. Just like a mmorpg, as well, they patch and add to the firmware. The ps3 had a rough start as Sony dealt with the new services and firmware. The ps3 store is growing now rapidly, the ps3 now upscales dvds and ps1/ps2 games to look better now. Basically, the system was out but there needed a little bit of time for the Operating system to be buffed up. One thing at a time.
The ps3 is freaking amazing right now, and I have a feeling we are in for some suprises.
What else do you want to know, because im not sure I quite get what you are looking for.
