Sony seems to have made a lot of mistakes and it would seem that this console war is between nintendo and MS
Sony; is placing too much time and effort into the blu-ray player, knowing sony`s track record this propetiary device will not fare well outside of the PS3 console, just look at betamax, umd`s and mini discs - yes it can store more info but that doesn`t matter, if a programmer is good he can condense info and program wisely. For instance take the program kkreiger which is only 96k, it looks as if it werer several hundred mega bytes. never heard of it heres a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.kkrieger
and in reality who cares about blu-ray or hd-dvd for that matter, i mean are people really going to upgrade all there movies, tv and so on for this- albeit gamers who are money poor to begin with, maybe they should have marketed that for movie buffs, not gamers. Another thing is Sony`s reliance on just having the fastest most powerful console; well thats all well and good but it needs to be resonable as well, i feel this console war is going to be less about power and more about experiance. it seems sony is making the same mistakes sega did years ago - making the most powerful console regardless of price and ability to program for.
MS; well what can i say over 5.3 million sold so far with great games, connectivity and its only just begun. _real time counter
The developers of gears of war had said that that game was only using 1 core at E3!!! the 360 has 3!! http://xbox360.qj.net/Gears-of-War-Only-Running-on-One-Core-/pg/49/aid/3378
The 360 also has xbox live and arcade which are very succesful.
NINTENDO; well again what can i say nintendo has rabid fans, a great looking system, a great price to performance ratio, its got it all and is going to be tough to beat.
so i have changed my view for a third time i think MS will come out on time after x-mas with nintendo right behind
by next x-mas i see nintendo taking the lead with MS very close behind and Sony very far behind, in 5-6 years SOny will catch up and surpass but for 2-3 years MS and nintendo will be fighting for the top spot
