Apparently you need to get on OCN more!
OT: I see this hitting 600+ and with only 1 Wiitabletard per with no sold seperately available, this may be their big flop.
Last two times? Are you trying to suggest that the PS2 cost a lot for $ony to manufacture? The POS2 was crap and outdated the day it was released, because the Dreamcast was much better (in terms of the hardware specs at least) only thing it had that was "next-gen" was a DVD player and that is the main reason why it sold like crazy, and also why they kept this tradition going by using Blu-ray in the PS3.

Everyone knows Microsoft basically ripped off the Dreamcast controller for the Xbox 360. The analog trigger buttons were ripped off the Dreamcast.
And? What are you trying to prove exactly? What you seem to forget is that those screens didn't cost a fortune, and Sega were actually competitive in their pricing, unlike Nintendo. If this is about "originality" of current gen consoles, then everyone also knows the PS3 controller ripped off the Xbox controller when it changed its L2/R2 buttons to be more "trigger-like" so they wouldn't be as bad at playing FPS games on them, and that the Wii ripped off the TV remote with their controller and not to forget PS Move, which ripped off the dildo.
If originality was what you were basing your argument on, then they all failed. MS just happened to openly admit that they were basing their console on the Dreamcast mostly, and Sega were more than happy with this, as they got to re-sell a lot of their titles on the original Xbox (Jet Set Radio, Dead or Alive, Shenmue etc).Edited by Am* - 6/12/11 at 3:46am
