    Well, I was doing Christmas shopping last night, and it seems like there are an abundance of PS3's out right now. There was 3 at Target, 1 at Best Buy, and 1 at Wal-Mart last night. Just sitting there...
    I had bought a PS3 last week, and put it on Ebay and it didn't sell. There is over 10,000 PS3's on Ebay right now, and its not worth trying to resell it on there. I'm glad I have my Wii, and I might be keeping the PS3 also since I bought it. I'm gonna see if anyone locally wants it, if not I got myself a xmas present.

    Yeah.

    When I waited for my Wii, all nine spots were filled up by 3:30 AM (I was number 9, the last one~)

    It was 7:00 AM before the first person showed up for the PS3, and the store opened at 10 AM.

    Kinda... Sad..

    Looks like it to me too! I saw a 60GB just sitting there on the shelf today in WALMART with all the many thousands of shoppers cruising right past. I Spoke to several middle aged (25-40yr old) gamers while I was shopping and pointed out the beast sitting there but NO ONE CARED!

    Nope, the PS3 is an overpriced hunk of junk. That's why you see so many of them collecting dust on stores' shelves.

    I saw more PS3's than I did 360's today, and there's no mad rush on 360's.

    That is weird. I found a PS3 at a local GameStop easier than Wii. I located a PS3 easier than Wii, even though Wii was supposedly more made than PS3.

    My friends mom went to wal-mart and got a ps3 in store for my friends little brother.

    So I know it can't be that hard to find one around here.

    And I agree with Blender. For $600 you can buy a premium xbox360 and a external HD-DVD player. So not only will you get in most cases better graphics, better games, better online enviroment, but you will also get your next gen movie player.

    YOur comparing a 1 year old system to sonys launch games. Have you seen what the cell can do? It will dominate the 360's graphics. As for the wii, the gamecubes graphics are on par with that. Hell the ps1 is pretty damn close. Plus you have to pay for ms online.

    :D Great comeback blenderwizard. Im looking for the insert saracasm button. Cant seem to find it. Anyways it sounds to me like your afraid that sonys system will prevail. All you can do is sit there and try to rip it apart hoping to change the minds of people. Ive had more problems with my wii today, then I have ever had with my ps3, and probably in its lifetime. Im sure glad nintendo spent all their time concentrating their efforts on a gaming console. It sure is working out well for them.

    Nope, not at all worried about Sony prevailing; sales numbers don't lie, and Wii and 360 have both already WAY outsold the PS3.

    No need to worry if Wii or 360 will be around, but i hope Sony gets a taste of what they did to the Dreamcast with their mega behemoth.

    Hmmm... remember Atari Jaguar? It could have dominated SNES and Genesis' graphics, but it failed.

    Neo Geo's another example of that.

    Good graphics don't equate to a successful system.

    The best graphics, free online, cheapest blu ray player on market, lots of great exclusive games, bluetooth controllers. Thats just to name a few.

    Did any of those systems you mention sell 1 million units in about a month of its release? No they didnt. Face it man, the ps3 will dominate the console war. It happened with the ps2, and its gonna happen again. Just wait until sony does a price drop :scared: The most advanced console for $400 and $500.

    Time for me to step in, just for one of this guys' posts...
    Here are a few little points/comments on your first paragraph

    ~Best graphics - Once again, if you love staring at purdy explosions and not actually playing the game, the PS3's perfect. Good for you. D:

    ~Free online... Hmm... Sounds familiar... I could have sworn that another same-gen console has that... Hmm... What was it?... OH, YES! The Wii! What a coincidence.

    ~Cheapest blu-ray player - Huh... And... How many blu-ray DVD's are out now?.. About... Twenty? Yeah... Totally worth it.
    Billy: Hey, wanna come over and watch Will Ferrel play a racing redneck?
    Joe: Naw, I'm good. I'd rather not just watch some boring HD DVD.
    Billy: But it's in BLUUUUU-RAAAAAYYY!!!
    Joe: Really?!.. Wait... What's the difference?
    Billy: No idea, but the disks are blue!
    Joe: ZOMG REALLY?! **** YEAH, MAN!
    ~~~~~
    Nice. xD

    ~A lot of GREAT exclusive games - Well... NOW I'm gonna have to break THIS one down a bit more...
    -A LOT of exclusive games? Really..? Name some, then. Oh, wait...
    -We're talking about GREAT exclusive games, aren't we? Like what?
    Riiiiiiiidge RACER!? xD
    -Hmm... Once again... Wonder what other consoles have some exclusive games... Maybe Nintendo could name a console or two... Huh...

    ~And go ahead and name a few more reasons why this thing is so superior?

    Oh, and this whole unit selling competition, Nintendo is obviously winning. Mentioning that Nintendo is manufacturing things faster is really idiotic, too. Just proving that it's selling faster. They make more, they sell more, no more available. Sony makes less, they sell even less than that, and they're sitting on shelves at stores. xD
