In the case of the PS3, people wanted a game console. What they got
Sony was essentially a blu-ray player and a request to take sides in

Maybe I just don't get it.
It's not broken. It's...advanced.
I don't think the PS3 is any longer in catch up mode as far as the
games go. The PS3 has a nice library now, and if you go by the aggregate
reviewer scores by many sites, their exclusives have scored higher on
average than the 360's have over the past few years. The PS3's attach
is over 7 now, and that is very respectable.
Catch up as in sales of both hardware and software...
Well, outside the past few weeks where the 360 hardware has been outselling
the PS3 worldwide by a decent margin, the PS3's software has been selling
very well. If you go by VGChartz, the PS3 only fell behind in weekly
software sales to the 360 by just over 100K. Considering the install base
favors the 360 by 5m+, that isn't too shabby. But it still has a long ways
to go to catch up in total sales in which the PS3 is nearly 110m behind.- Hide quoted text -
