They're not sure they would win? Or they're sure they wouldn't win?

Is this some sort of joke? The PS3 is largely superior to the 360 hardware wise. Not to mention the graphics are undoubtedly better.
The way i look at it, if i'm gonna pay for a console, i'm not going to go with a core, or a premium, or maybe even an elite. I want everything built in. If i'm paying for a console it sure as hell better have some advantages over my PC. And thats where the PS3 comes in.
Have you seen how much better at folding it is than the 360? Of course not, cause the 360 doesn't fold.
Have you see how much cooler it is than the 360? Of course not, you can't keep a 360 alive long enough to take a temperature reading.
Why don't all of you wait until game makers start slapping large amounts of content onto a BDROM. Then, to get the Xbox360 equivalent, you will be "forced"
to buy an HD-DVD and "forced"
to play it on inferior media. TES:V? The next GTA? These games are ALREADY in the works, and I guaruntee they will be using these media devices to their fullest potential.
Also, on a side note:
Sony Blu-ray player: Original Price: 1000$, newegg Price: 700$. PS3 price: 600$, soon to be 500$.
Sony Blu-ray burner: 660$. Ps3 price: 600$, soon to be 500$.
