I noticed that over all last year in my school the PS3 was getting slagged off. Okay, fair enough, the 360 was going strong and the Wii just came out, not to mention the PS3 delay.
HOWEVER, lately I've noticed that very few people I know actually bought a Wii, and those that did say its "okay". Many people have a 360 but most havent played it since Gears of War!
Meanwhile people are now coming up to me and saying "You pre-ordered a PS3?! Woooow! I really want one, but it costs too much. I'm gonna get one when the price drops."
This isn't an isolated incident, this conversation has happened to me about 10 times in the week since I pre-ordered my PS3. Now, if the reaction is like this NOW, what's gonna happen when I go into school and tell people "Hey, PS3 games cost forty pounds, you know"
BIG PLUS! THATS LESS THAN A 360 GAME!
(Which practically guarantees the 360 will cost more in the long run)
I just thought I'd post this for all the PS3 haters. I did a survey in my year to see who wanted what console, and over 60% said they'd get a PS3 when the price went down. 10% were going to get one at launch!
It seems to me that among the layman PS3 is considered the best console by far. Not one person in my year has tried to argue that the Wii or 360 is better. I expect the PS3 to sell extremely well next year, or when the price is cut.
