Not saying that people don't like it - but it has been a trainwreck. Half the promised fesatures were cabbaged because of "cost cutting", Blu-Ray has never really gone anywhere, like sure, it defeated HD-DVD which was uberlame, but people still haven't really gone Blu-Ray (mostly because Hollywood is cranking out some of the worst schlock possible). GT5 was what, five years late to the scene? Streaming, well, that might be cool, but it is becoming impossible with capping and throttling, which will be the ruin of so many internet services in general.
They just seem to have too many models of PS3 - you have to be an expert at revision codes and serial numbers to know which ones are worthwhile and which ones are scrap. And then, knowing that even if you buy a good one, Sony can zap it with an update and make it worthless scrap.
What I liked about the PS2 was that it was a PS2, and the only change was between the cool, old school case and the new slim case - while functionality remained the same. Plus, cool games like GT3 came out with it - while the PS3, people had to wait a long, long time for that to finally materialize.
I think Sony needs a new strategy - one where their customers are important, and putting out a decent product is also important, because they have really slid downhill over the past few years, on so many categories that they pretend to be competitive in.
