I'll bet it vibrates when it doesn't like a disk like the PS2 does.

Quick reply -

Live (UK magazine) and various online reviewers have criticised many of the PS3's launch titles as using tired gameplay. These people aren't saying the same about the Wii (likely controller changes that, makes games more involving perhaps?). Also the port thing is a bit rubbish, funny how Ridge Racer on the PS3 looks worse and has background objects missing compared to the 360 version.

It's funny hearing that if Sony had enough consoles they would sell more than anyone else. Are you that naive about the PS3's launch titles? They are shit. Sony pissed up the launch with retardedly low stock figures, shoddy launch games, no European launch till when now? Even March hasn't been officially confirmed. I mean over the pond in England we're hearing nothing of the PS3 launch except that there was gunfire, the press (including News Night and Working Lunch) here are going on about how good and intuitive the Wii is. There are no games worth getting. Whereas the Wii has launched with the highest rated game this generation, already flattening the 360's highest scorer (tied GoW and Oblivion).
Wii's are selling out because Zelda is a god of a game, the best (highest scoring should I say) launch title a system has ever seen.

Oh and PLEASE. 450 for a games console with composite cables? Even Microsoft managed component. Even NINTENDO managed to get a Gamecube memory port on the side of the Wii. How come Sony can't? Oh that's right, you're not paying enough for the console first time round!
If you like the PS3 then good. But please, Sony is having a shit time right now and the PS3 has no decent games yet. I mean god knows I won't be going back to a console without rumble, I'll take a 360 once it gets an absolute killer title (Halo 3?).

So much for the quick reply but as Pixelthief said - for that price it would need to be noticeably better than the 360. I'm not getting what I paid for, I would like to pay for a system with more bang for buck, double the 360's power please.
Size issue? It's bigger than the first Xbox which I had great trouble to get to look pretty on my desk. I stick my current gen systems in an unventilated cupboard. Doing that with either a 360 or PS3 would just be stupid.
Sony never said it was more powerful than the 360?

"PS3 is a Supercomputer"?
They even had the balls to say -
"HD era starts when we say it does"
"Is just an Xbox 1.5 and stated that it was only going after PlayStation 2."
"Beating us for a short moment is like accidentally winning a point from a Karate master, and Microsoft is still not black belt." - in reference to Xbox Live

I must have missed the commercials bashing the PS3. I must have missed Nintendo even acknowledging the existence of the PS3. They're not Sega with their NintenDON'T campaigns.

Wii sports blows chunks.
I own it, I've played it, the ONLY thing on it worth using is bowling (which is, actually quite fun). Everything else on it blows chunks.

#2-
PS3 = Xbox360 in terms of graphics/power.
Sorry, its true. PS3 can run some things like polygon counts xbox360 could NEVER manage, but hey, PS3 doesn't have enough ram to run a UT4.0 game like gears of war. Frankly, the two systems are evenly matched in terms of computing power.

#3-
PS3 = Xbox720 in terms of price.

"I must have missed the commercials bashing the PS3. I must have missed Nintendo even acknowledging the existence of the PS3. They're not Sega with their NintenDON'T campaigns."

Not this generation however with the nintendo 64, Nintendo put adverts up saying how slow the psx was calling it a "32 bit cd machine"
and told people to wait for the super fast silicons gameplay of the 'ultra64' which is what it was still known as at the time.

Ive lost complete interest in consoles now, I own nearly every mainstream console up to the last gen and i just got a psp (which is a fine peice of kit i have to say) but the next gen...... its just a load of overpriced junk, Why go out and pay 100,s of pounds for a console when all they release now is sequals and remakes? the wii is the only thing that has tried anything new and still i cant see the point in it, The bottom line is that these new consoles are trying to mimic the powers of the pc and the online gameing world that nearly all pc gamers have been experiencing for the last 5 years and are still failing.

If a new game comes out for the pc and i want it, ill buy it. if 2 years down the line a new mmorpg comes out i can just pop out and buy a better gfx card etc and experience top end graphics that will continue to progress with time. But if i bought a ps3 or xbox360 ill be stuck playing the same old EA shite and other poor titles that will then be graphicly and intuitevly out of date.

The point im trying to make is the next gen wants to be a pc but fails. Why would i want to pay an online subscription to play a console game when i can play it for free and with better gfx, faster and all round better to play on my pc? (and before anyone says anything i know top end gaming pc's are expensive but so is the ps3, and in comparison the pc is a better value for money and will give better performance every time!)

Wii Sports is cool, fool. The PS3 is actually capable of a lot more than the 360, but parallel processing is a bitch bitch bitch to use fully. Finally, Sony is losing like 200 dollars per console so they probably could've gotten away with charging 800.
