People are going to buy two [machines]. They're going to buy an Xbox and they're going to buy a Wii ... for the price of one PS3."

lol he's right. What kind of idiot would JUST buy a PS3 when you can get an xbox and a Wii for the same price. Now if you're going to buy all three, I can understand, but if you have to choose two... xbox and Wii.

lol Sony is screwed.

I doubt it... THe price doesn't push a console, the games do. I can bet there will be many titles exclusive to Sony.

Dosen't matter if the games are better than sex. Sony alienated a lot of people with a $600 price tag.

What a weak move by Moore.

'Using' the Wii to fight Sony. How pathetic.

Who cares? It's business. I mean, the PS3 can look GREAT on paper. But when it comes down to it people are going to look into their wallets and say "oh ****."

Think about all those poor college kids who bought a PS2. What do they make, like $8 and hour? lol a PS3 is like three weeks of work for them. They ain't gonna buy that lol. Sianara Sony!

It's a business technique called "skimming." Every console manufacturer does it. There are tons of people out there willing to pay $600. After a few months, everyone willing to buy one at $600 will have already bought it and Sony will lower the price to entice the next segment of people. Rinse and repeat.

You think $600 is alienating? I don't know about you but when the 360 first came out there were bundles being sold that were well over $1000.

yeah, and those bundels included 6 or 7 games, accessories, and a whole lot of other crap. Of course hardcore gamers will buy a PS3, but Sony's bread and butter is not hardcore gamers who will be willing to pay anything. It's the regular joe schmooe who has a fixed budget.

Hmmm, X360 & Wii or PS3. Well when its put like that...

Although I was already planning on getting a Wii and a X360 as soon as more games aside from Oblivion come out for it which I'm interested in.

Whenever the PS3 comes into at least a $400 range, I'll bite.

I'm actually buying a PS3 and a Wii because all the good titles for the Xbox 360 are coming out for PC.

PS3 + Wii - crapbox360 = :D

I'm begining to think the Wii will do better than PS3 or Xbox360. SOOO many people are stating "i'm getting Xbox and Wii" or "I'm only getting the PS3 and the Wii" or even "I can only afford the Wii"

/thinking about investing in Nintendo stock atm.....

Was there any question as to what Zelda_fag's preference would be?
