When gameplay is improved (ie better games are out for it...) I'll pick one up in March when it's out in Europe...

Simple, I'd buy one when I can actually find one for the regular price. Though with the current line up I am not really in any hurry, though it would be good so I can also have a BR player in my setup.

What the hell?

It's not all that it was cracked up to be, but its going to be a decent competitor for the X360 not only because of the brand name, but also because there ARE going to be fun games out for it, even if they are multisystem.

I'm disappointed too, but no no one would have to pay me to take one.

It would have to be bundled with the 360 and Wii for me. Also, it would be a cold day in hell for Blu-Ray to win.

so far, results are pretty even throughout the poll. "Price would have to be lowered to $400" is in the lead by one vote.

I'd honestly buy one for $300-$400, which just so happens to be the price they could have sold it for if they didn't include Blu-Ray. The reason I am not buying the system now is probably the same reason most others have. I can easily afford it, but the reason I can afford having nice things is because I don't like to WASTE my money. PS3 = Waste of money at the moment.

The people who buy the PS3 either:
1. Had the system given to them(which by all means, more power to ya. Its still a nice system, just overpriced.)
2. Have way too much money they don't know what to do with it.
3. Are poor as hell and are just continuing with tradition of poor people buying things they CAN"T afford, thus staying poor for even longer.

I might buy one if they were cheaper, but I've already got my Wii, and I doubt that I'd be able to play two consoles + my PC enough to make another one worthwhile.

I would be willing to buy a PS3 once Sony actually finishes the beta testing on it. As it is now the PS3 is not ready for prime time!

So basically the people that own PS3s fall into the category of being "anyone."

Where do you fit in the category? Where do I?

We both can easily afford it. We are just smart enough to not do it.

People who are poor usually aren't smart enough to realize their limits in money, hence why they are poor.

People with tons of money don't care and will just buy it because it is the most expensive. Most expensive = better in their eyes.
