    Wii More Fun Than PS3?
    Sony Australia's General Manager thinks so.
    by Patrick Kolan, IGN AU

    Australia, December 4, 2006 - According to an article by Asher Moses from the Sydney Morning Herald, Sony Australia's General Manager, Nic Foster, has some slightly poorly-worded opinions on the Nintendo Wii, as compared with the forthcoming (for Aussies) PlayStation 3.

    Foster was quoted as saying, "Wii is a core gaming device. It's a more fun, intuitive sort of product to pick up, where the PS3 is a broader entertainment solution; so you can have your fun, enjoyable gaming ... but then you have a whole suite of other applications ... such as Blu-ray media playback, the ability to access your music, access your photos and the interoperability with the PlayStation Portable."

    Foster also felt that the console's delay will not affect its overall performance in the Australian market.

    "Gamers are extremely aware of what they're after and what they want. So gamers will already have a very good understanding of what PlayStation 3 offers versus what Wii offers and many of them will probably have both devices."

    You're right, Mr. Foster. Gamers are aware of what they want. But is that still the PlayStation 3? This is the burning question that will remain unanswered until 2007.

    Wow, one of Sony's own General Managers thinks the Wii is a funner system.

    What an idiot, if the quote is correct. But I can't argue with that
