I think I may end up getting a Revolution too and put it right next to my SNES. Their is nothing wrong with the xbox360, it just needs better (and more) games. If you want a pseudo media center then go with the xbox360 and the PS3. As far as pure gaming goes Nintendo will take the crown.

i dont think the ps3 will be priced close enough to the 360 to compete with it this console will be for spoiled rich kids and hardcore gamers if sony drops the price to low it very well could bankrupt sony

I just don't like Microsoft consoles... I'm probably gonna buy a refurb PS3 once they start going for $200.

More advanced? There is a disc right now that would be cheaper than Blu-Ray, and hold even MORE data than it. But thats besides the point.. Those comments were made by The big honcho's of Sony Europe. They are practically as legit as the president of Sony. They all have say in what goes.

If the PS3 is delivered at $599.99 what does this mean for Sony? Historically gaming machines would have never sold for anything north of $299.99 (that was until the Xbox360 moved the line to 399.99 in winter of 2005). Just look at the complete failure of the 1990's powerhouse, the 3DO, at the relatively respectable price of $399.99 (roughly $449.99 inflation adjusted). With the PS3 now touting the largest price tag for any console in the history of gaming and higher then most mid-low end PC's at this point, does this spell disaster for the ailing hardware giant? Sony hasn't posted net gains in the past three years until 2005 when they posted a depressing $580 million dollar profit after posting loss's in the billions for the last three fiscal years.

PS3 production pricing at this point has been laid out to be anywhere from $850 - $956 per unit, meaning there will be a loss on each machine of approx $250 - $350 per console sold. If one million consoles sell in the first day of availability Sony will have wiped there entire fiscal gain for all of 2005 in under 24 hours.

Ailing stock prices, poor movie sales and a failing UMD (Sony PSP media) market, might add up to a low-cost buyout in Sony's future. I personally see this happening regardless of the Blu-ray market by 2014. I for one can just see the looks on Sony's main competitors faces at this time, all the gleaming in the world coming from One Microsoft way (the road both Nintendo HQ and MS HQ reside on) as this could turn out to be the largest upset in consumer electronics history.

All this added up, you have to ask yourself. Will the next Playstation you purchase post-PS3 run a Microsoft operating system and have backwards compatibility for PS1 PS2 PS3 Xbox and Xbox360? Putting your rabid love for Sony aside, this doesn't seem as far fetched as it once did, when the Sony name wasn't covered in enough red tape to fill the Grand Canyon.

it still uses old school 2.4Ghz wireless technology for it's controllers.

Compared to the PS3 which will run on a Blu-Ray drive, with Blue-tooth wireless.......now THAT'S the next generation of technology.
Blue tooth is nothing new. Plus Blue tooth mice tend to lag more than RF or wired mice. Its not really suited for gaming.
Very nice!
