Default Article from 2000 re: The PS2 dethroning the PC

http://archives.cnn.com/2000/TECH/co...on.engine.idg/

This is why it's so hard to not get deja vu with regards to the PS3 "paper launch" at E3.

Another interesting article, source obviously biased as hell but good read:

Yea, total de-javu here. I expect similar results to the last launch, it just might take a little longer this time, at least in the CPU department. From a graphics chip standpoint, I think it'll be surpassed in almost no time, however.

LOL!!! Well, no crap!!! Unless the only thing you do with your PC is hit that power button, of course the console would be easier to use! Glaskowsky's comment just makes me laugh!

Yeah, I see your point. But back then they didn't have competitors until later. Now when Microsoft has joined the game, sony have to come out with something good! I mean who would buy a ps3 that sucks over an xbox360 that's very good? I mean, the xbox360 even gets a head start! If the ps3 won't live up to it's standards, noone's gonna buy it anyways, so sony will lose a lot of costumers(of course some die hard sony fans will buy the console). So steeda no worries man, everyone has got an opinion of their own right now about which console is the best, but buying one of 'em will eventually be based on real gaming performance and graphics!
I just hope that sony won't let us down... and Microsoft!

You're never intelligent nor funny, merely a used tampon circling the toilet bowl.

Please, do not breed. I beg of you. Think of your children. Think how unhappy they will be everyday, having to use the special bus.***************
Actually my kids are both very intelligent and straight "A" students. This forum may have people on it with challenged children. Your comment insults all of them. Learn some manners.
