PS3, not worth the price IMO. Doesnt seem to be that much more as far as the specs are concerned to justify the stiff pricing, and blu-ray is just not a priority for me right now.

Now the Wii, that sounds like a great system that would compliment my 360

No PS3 for me. Seems like too much money and the vids at the press conference didn't look any better than the 360.

$600 seems do-able, but at least 2 games and a controller it's more like $800.

I think that Sony look like fools right now for pot-shotting MS all year about the Core and Premium system at release... then they not only drop two SKUs... but their "cheap" unit can't even be upgraded to the "other" unit.

Not smart.

I think that the Wii may steal all of Sony's juice at E3 this year.

Ive had every console sony has offered, but this one seems a little arrogant on their part. Expecting people to pay 600 bones for a console? Now way jose.

My thoughts are that being a multi-platform gamer is a thing of the past.

I might consider a Wii as a second system, but no way am I dropping that kind of cash on a PS3.

will be saving up to get a 360

I was going to get a PS3 if it was priced the same as a 360. Now I kind of doubt it. But I'll wait to see the reviews, and if it's not that much better than than the 360, and I doubt there will be that much difference, I'll go with the 360, which I hope will come down in price before Christmas.

I always thought Sony was smarter than this. This just doesn't seem like that bright a move.

If the 360 HD price comes down to $300 around the same time the PS3 comes out at $500 and $600, and there's not that much of a difference in terms of the quality of sports titles, I just don't see any reason to get a PS3.

I think Sony might have screwed itself.

It's gonna be a lot of money, but I'm alright with getting the PS3 for $600. Now if I had already owned a 360, I doubt I would buy this as well.
# 10 Sancheezy @ 05/09/06 02:57 PM
i was holding as well, but that price almost guarantees that ill get the 360 at some time, and totally forget about getting the PS3. 600 bucks is a lot of money , especially when you have a family.

100% agreement here.
# 12 ndeezlo @ 05/09/06 05:04 PM
MLB the Show and the fact that I've only owned Sony/Sega products except for NES and Gamecube, or the reasons i'm still considering the PS3. And Blu-ray but I'm not sure if either Blu-ray or HD DVD's will take off within this next generation of video games. So color me confused.
