Default How bad do you want PS3?

With all this craziness, I decided to do this poll. This will last until end of December.

This poll ONLY applies to people who want or don't want the game system to play with.

I would never use it, my old PS2 broke down after a few months. That pretty steered me away from ever buying another game system.

I was playing it in Target yesterday and it was AMAZING, but wayyyyy too much $$$ for a game. Of course, we're not exactly on the cutting edge of consoles, the kids still use my NES, but we are getting ready to move up to a GameCube. Shhh, it's an xMas surprise...

Me too. Want to form a line there to watch that happen? May be the only line I'd be in for one of these

Sony once again had a major problem being the giant electronics/entertainment conglomerate. They decided that using the PS3 to pimp out Blu-Ray would be a great idea. I could see it being in the $600 console, but they should have taken it out of the basic console while adding wifi, and sold it for $349. Sony would dominate this gen console market again, and in two years, they can throw Blu-Ray into the low end if it looks to at least be tied with HD DVD still.

Now, they will lose to (as much as the Apple fanboy in me hates to say it) Microsoft and likely Nintendo as well. The evidence is by the sheer number of people who bought the PS3 simply to put it on eBay, or try to sell it someplace else. The limited amount available make it look like lots want it, but come early February, there will be piles of them in Best Buy as sales screech to a halt. Parents will flock to the XBox 360 for their teens b/c it is a console with lots of accessories, a larger library of games, and it is $200 less than a PS3. Those that don't go 360 will turn to Nintendo, as it is a decent system, and much more reasonably priced with a load of features.

I guess what I'm saying is that my PS2 that I bought for $149 will serve me well for the next couple of years. The Wii will probably come into my possession in 2007, but I will not even consider a PS3 until it is under $299.
