You'll get it when it's done

Sony officials have confirmed that the Playstation 3 will indeed make it out before the end of the year, but that's all the company will say. There's no word on the launch date, no word on pricing and no word on if they've decided to get rid of the boomerang controller.

At the 2006 Taipei Game Show, Sony was only able to muster up three mock-up PS3 consoles -- maybe Josh Robinson was on to something...

The PS3 will lag the Xbox 360 more in market share if Sony delays launch of the PS3 to the end of 2006, the sources said, noting that Microsoft predicted global shipments of its Xbox 360 will reach 4.5-5.5 million units by the end of June.

The problem is that this is PS2/Dreamcast all over again. 360 will have the market, but everyone will be "Oh, I can't wait for PS3" in a shameful display of brand loyalty.

Meh, the 360 will do fine. Sega didn't have the money to back up the Dreamcast, MS on the other hand is willing to throw BILLIONS for the success of the 360. Trust me, this is NOT going to be another "PS2/Dreamcast" situation. As it is right now, PS3 is actually in a disadvantage as it's been reported to only be BARELY more powerful than the 360. If your system is coming out later wouldn't you expect it to be far more powerful rather than barely more powerful? Besides, with the rumored price tags for the PS3 (Some are saying as high as $550) the 360 might have the advatage in pricing (A Premium is $400).

So, yea. If Sony is expecting to just run right over the 360 with the PS3 like they did to the Dreamcast with the PS2 they're in for one rude awakening.

I do have more faith in 360 then PS3. Time will tell I suppose, but like I said: I believe it when I see it.

I've decided to just stick with the Xbox for awhile more. Let em fight it out for awhile, see who emerges the victor.
