I wouldn’t really blame Sony for putting stupid labels like “emotion engine” on their products. That’s just stupid stuff filtering down from marketing departments, and almost every company does it. I wouldn’t be surprised if it works. How are you enjoying your Pentium with MMX TECHNOLOGY?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really defending them. I think Sony is really retarded. They could have easily won this generation just on brand-name alone. Instead they come out with overpriced system that no one can afford.
Also, I want part 2!]]>
I think the Xbox 360 is just definitely expensive, but it’s not out of the ordinary. New consoles have cost $250-$300 for 10 years, the 360 bumped it up to $400 (for the non-retarded system). Sony is getting out of control and taking it up another $100-$200. It’s just not smart.]]>
Kevin you’re absolutely right and I think you should come out and say it. What Sony released isn’t going to cut it and without either a tax break (is it a hybrid?) or funtionality that will legitimize the expense the PS3 is too expensive and (if and when it comes out) too late. Too expensive shrinks your market, too late gives your competitors time to steal the market. Either way in the end you have fewer titles and that means… game over. If it weren’t for Nintendo pushing a console that may revolutionize (or is it now wii-ize) the industry I’d be ready to crown the xbox as king of the next-gen-console. The question still remains, however has the whole industry gotten too big for the expense. With losses springing up all over the place does the winner really get somthing worth having or merely name recognition for the next fight? Furthermore, the high consumer cost of the machines is opening a huge door for anyone that would like to make a box that may please someone other than the gammer in the household.]]>
I don’t really follow these things that closely, so I don’t know what Sony “promised” last year. But given that you said they showed a “prototype”, doesn’t it imply that their specifications weren’t set? Sure, it’s a let-down, but I don’t think they’re really lying. Anyway, Microsoft isn’t exactly great at keeping promises. How many of Windows Vista’s promised features have now slipped out of the release?]]>
