I am writing this to waste time until my stargate episode finishes.. anyways,
I am worried that the Playstation 3 might become a failure and here is why:
I read a recent article on gamespot about how the ps3 might sell for $399, a loss of ~100 per unit to manufacture. (http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/06...s_6128295.html) I know that this is a market strategy to scoop up the market, but xbox 360 is in a pretty good situation here.
Since the xbox 360 is coming out well before the ps3, Microsoft can intially sell for $299 or what they decide to sell it for, and get the hardcore audience at full price. Then as the ps3 debut draws near, they can hit the ps3 with the 1-2 combo (plasma pistol/battle rifle combo as I call it) with a price drop ( say $249) and the release of halo 3. By then the xbox 360 is going to have a nice library of games and have a selection of budget titles too. Meanwhile the ps3 will end up like the psp ( better graphics, but 3 games, and too much $$$)
Anyways, here is the main question I'd like a response from.. (and is another reason I think ps3 will fail) What are some good games that are going to be on the ps3 only that make it worth purchasing? Especially now that Final Fantasy people will now be able to play FFXI on xbox360 AND a MMORGP game like grand theft auto is coming out for 360 as well. Not to mention any new GTA game comes out to xbox eventually. There is no Halo 3 for ps3.. except for maybe a God of War sequel, but I havent heard anything of it.
