microsoft. like they've said before:
developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers developers

they know how to make things easier for developers, in turn letting you get more for your money. ill argue all week about this, so if you aren't ready for a battle don't argue.

nintendo is in second. and sony is in third since they apperently hate everyone. (over priced console - hate consumers | overpriced dev kit - hate developers, and inadvertently raising game prices... hate consumer again | using 5fps speed up video/cgi at an expo and claiming its real - hate media | severly undersupplying (like even more than the 360 problem... alot less, estimated to be about 2-5 per store unlike the xbox 360's 10-50 per store) why would i buy that?

blu-ray is expensive. i heard that a blu-ray player is as much as a PS3, so were getting a deal.

the only game prices (other than GT) that i have seen are 60-65 dollars, matching those of the 360.

severly undersupplying (like even more than the 360 problem... alot less, estimated to be about 2-5 per store unlike the xbox 360's 10-50 per store)

their theory is that decreased availability will increase demand, as that is the cornerstone of economics. BUT i think theyre taking it too far, which could end up hurting them.

why would i buy that?

depends on what you like.
- the Wii is like the little inexpensive toy. although entertaining, it could be lacking certain things.
- the 360 is the good middle ground system with something for most people.
- the PS3 is the very expensive powerhouse. it contains everything you would ever want, but that comes at a steep price.
yay!

you're assuming bluray survives.... i wouldn't put money on a team thats lost every game. beta vs vhs. minidisk vs mp3. umd(videos not games) vs ???. bluray vs hddvd.

"their theory" - "The revision of the launch date in the SCEE territories is caused by the delay in the mass production schedule of the blue laser diode within the Sony Group, thus affecting the timely procurement of key components to be utilised in PlayStation 3."

"expensive powerhouse" - expensive parts put in a shell with little thought. like these questions:

q: the specs say power is good... but how easy is it to reach?
a: 7 dsp's make ps3 twice as difficult to program as the xbox 360.

q: could we reach something similar to this performance with less cost?
a: yes... buy more cheap processors instead of one rry expensive one controlled by 7 cheap ones....... wait... thats what microsoft did.

q: if we made it harder to program (with more processors) what can we do to help development teams and encourage new games?

wrong answer: charge 20k for a dev kit
correct answer: charge 100 bucks for a mini dev kit and only a few thousand (1000-5000) for the full thing, and make it available to the public.

sony should have modulated the bluray player so they could mass produce it and offer it as AN OPTION rather than forcing it (and its price tag) on buyers this would limit the amount of money they lost on consoles, raise the number of consoles for november, and lower the price tag.


microsoft makes software for hardware. so they know what hardware optimizes their software, so when they choose the hardware, the people who make the software get a better setup
