Is the PS3 really a failure? – After word

pswii60pic.jpgI awoke this morning to see my small video game blog had about 4000 hits(10 times the amount it usually gets) in the last 12 hours, the bulk of which came from After reading all the forum debates the article I wrote last night caused, I feel obligated to post a bit of an after word.

I realize now that it may seem like I was discounting the 360 and Wii – I did compare the 360 to the Dreamcast, and hardly even mentioned the Wii at all. I don’t think these are bad systems, quite the opposite actually. They both have their fair share of exclusive A titles coming out in the next few months – the 360 with Mass Effect, Ace Combat 6, Fable 2, Too Human, the Wii with SMG, SSBB, Mario Kart Wii, Wii Fit, etc. As it stands right now, the PS3 has a very long way to go to catch up.

At the moment, the PS3 can’t even begin to compete with the Wii, and, even though the PS3 is selling the same as the 360 did in the first 10 months – thats not something Sony should be proud of. I doubt when Sony released the PS3, their goal was to sell ‘as well’ as the 360. Sony really needs to push forward now, because even if they continue to sell ‘as well’ as the 360, that means they will always be behind it. Now with some of its competitors biggest titles out of the way, we will see what Sony can do. With the 40GB PS3 essentially confirmed, and the PS3’s line up of quality exclusives coming out in the next 6 months, this is Sony’s time to shine. Like the I said, the PS3 isn’t a failure – not yet at least. Now we see what Sony is made of.
