    well the point is, sony took longer to release their system because it needed to be perfected. The 360 was released in such a way to be the first system on the market, while obviously skipping the testing and fixing required. They still made a lot of money, but the consumer in this case is the one that is let down.

    The thing about companies who release consoles they take a loss with, is that they have to rely on good games to make back that profit. I like nintendo too, but because nintendo made the choice to use old tech and cheap hardware to make a profit on the consoles, it only means they have a lot less incentive to release quality games. No matter what they wont make a loss. Sony sells their console for less than its worth while making up for the cost themselves, which means they have a lot of incentive to release quality games in which to make back that loss. The drive is there because they need it to counteract the loss they take on the consumers half. Which is a great mentality for gaming.

    So how do you early adopters of the ps3 feel?

    If you had waited you could have had a cheaper console, or an 80gb one with motorstorm.
    Its good for all the people who want one this holiday season though.
    Post is there ^^^
    How dare you state a different point of view, you complete fanboy! /sarcasm

    I just bought one. Actually last friday on a trip to San Antonio. I personally don't feel sorry about the price cut. I'd have had to wait at least 6 more months to get it (I wasn't going to buy it here in Mexico for about $900 bucks). The only disappointment I have right now is that Mexico is not included in the list while registering for the PS Network. I had to give a fake US address in order to register.

    I don't understand why we are not there. I'm having trouble finding Malta on the map, but they are already included in the list. What a world!

    They aren't that much more powerful. They are actually pretty close and the 360 has a better graphics card.

    Here is a list showing how the PS3 is cheaper, that I made in another thread.
    • Xbox 360 Elite - $480
    • HD DVD Drive - $200
    • Play & Charge - $20
    • Wifi Adapter - $100
    • Xbox Live - $250 (assuming you own the console for five years)
    • Total - $1050

    • PS3 - $500
    • HDMI - $5
    • Total - $505

    Now, you probably wouldn't need all of those things, but that is how much it would be to get them equally equipped. The 360 setup like that would have a bigger HDD, though the PS3's can be changed easily.

    The PS3 has a RSX and the 360 has a Xenos. Just look at these two comparisons GameSpot did. The 360 looks better in almost all of them.
