Sega released the Dreamcast about the same amount of time ahead of Sony's PS2 that MS released the 360 and we all know how well that turned out for Sega. Just because you're the first doesn't mean you're the winner. The good news is that I won't need a new GPU for a while I guess right?
I really loathe Sony lately. Every single segment of the company is full of failure right now it's incredible. I wish someone would hack the PS3 further (if possible) to forces Sony's hand into making a new console. They need a lesson in humility. They lost a long time customer here.
On the flip side I guess they're still hurting in the profit margins on the PS3 and that's why they don't want to pursue another console right now. I guess it's impressive how well the PS3 is doing with that 7800GTX in it.
