Sony Posts A Billion Dollar Loss

they took a huge leap of faith with there ps3, i for one can see there sales getting better year over year, 360 is slipping...sony is doing some nice things with the ps3 now, and i must admit im WAY more excited about the ps3 games for 09/2010 then with the 360 lineup

What a biased opinion below me. 360 still the cheapest, best value, easiest to dev for, best quality and most games. Also RROD is history. Sony has no value for the price, it suffered on HDTV market as it did with consoles. I for one am happy they got f**ked and still hope they do for all the BS and promises.

its a shame people have to use numbers to say whats good or bad, my ps3 is better than my 360 imo, i like em both, i just know full heartedly that the ps3 is a much more capable machine and has way more potential, lets see what happens down the road.

Its not about which console has the best hardware anymore. It boils down to gameplay. You can s**t out a million games with pretty graphics but if the gameplay sucks monkey c**k then don't expect it to do well in sales and reviews. Look at the Wii for example puny hardware great games. Though I think Nintendo is losing steam imo.
