Some parts I don't agree with, but I'll wait to hear if anyone else has anything to say about it.

The 360 wasn't a worldwide launch, it was released in Australia late. Not yet in Africa, or in some European countries.

Okay, sorry. It was the "largest launch in history". My mistake.

Whats your problem?

Anyways, Sony isnt going to win.. They are either going to go bankrupt first, or realize they cant produce the console en mass enough.

Either way...

im not sure where you guys are buying these consoles from.. the only consoles in history that launched at more then 299 were the 3D0 the Neo Geo and 360 .. and even at that you could get a core 360 for 299..

The PS2 was released in Japan well before anywhere else.

Nintendo made two disgustingly horrible decisions:

1. Cartridges for the N64 instead of optical discs. Sure you can't easily pirate them, and sure load times are faster; but the Playstation looked and sounded a generation ahead of the N64 because it used CDs.

2. But the real bonehead award goes to Nintendo for leaving Sony high-and-dry in the collaboration for the SNES CD add-on. For those of you not familar with history, Sony was building this nifty little add-on for Nintendo as a response to the Sega CD. Nintendo totally backstabbed them, dropping Sony like a bad habit by publicly announcing a different direction at a trade show (CES, I think) while Sony was there talking up their SNES CD! Nintendo deserved a pimpslap for that kind of behavior, and they got it. The guts of the SNES CD evolved into the Playstation.

So Nintendo's arrogance cost them a piece of the Playstation pie. Now Sony's arrogance threatens their own dominating position. What is it with these corporate execs choosing to actively ignore history?

No disrespect to other territories, but the initial target territories are clearly Japan and the US, with the EU following shortly behind. No one has ever said "we have to capture the Australian market or our console will be a bust..." So although not semantically accurate, a Japan/US/EU simultaneous release is going to be marketed and perceived as a "worldwide release".

Apparantly some of the leading game designers much prefer the 360's use of RAM over the PS3. Just a thought..
