I think it’s funny to see how the console wars are going on – it seems the underdog is becoming the unsung hero of the battle.
In the beginning when the XBOX 360 came out, you couldn’t find it anywhere for a good couple of months – bare minimum. Not bad…..
When the PS3 came out, you couldn’t find any…..til a few days after Christmas (now they’re all over)
When the Wii came out, you couldn’t find any…..and you’re STILL having a hard time finding them!
Now granted, the major cause behind this I’m sure is the cost. Because:
XBOX 360 Silver pack (the only decent one): $400
The PS3 60GB version: $600
The Nintendo Wii: $249
Myself…I think the play mechanics on the Wii are revolutionary enough to justify getting one. I have 5 games for the Wii now: Wii Sports, Super Swing Golf, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Super Paper Mario, and they are ALL well worth the price. Try to find that many good solid games on the PS3 right now.
Maybe someday Sony will reduce the price of the PS3, but with Blu-Ray players still raging huge prices, I doubt we’ll see that anytime soon. And XBOX? Yeah….Microsoft will keep those profit margins as high as possible. I don’t foresee any price cuts from them either.
So after checking them all out…..I really think Nintendo is gonna come out smelling like roses in this war.
