Some people bash the PS3 simply because they think it was a poorly researched product, and doesn't give the majority of consumers what they want (well, need) in a console. Instead, some feel, the console tries to be too multi-functional and in the process fails on delivering on its most basic feature - gaming entertainment.
Although, you didn't respond to my other two posts so I don't know why I'm posting this. You use derrogitory terms to belittle opposition ("alternative", "15 y.o. fanboys", "Super Mario 2 nerds") instead of supporting your arguments with facts and reference sources. The irony of you insulting others based upon their supposed bias is almost over-inundating.
First, I didn't delibrately ignore any posts, so if you would point out what I failed to respond to, I'll do my best.
Secondly, I think pronouncing the PS3 a failure or even saying it fails in certain areas is exceptionally premature. How can you say it fails at being a gaming console when we know full well we haven't yet seen the big titles? We know they're coming. By Christmas 2007, it will look much different.
I also don't think you can make the claim that Sony failed to do research. In fact, it can be said that maybe they listened to their customers too much
. They listened on wireless controllers, Blu-Ray, wirless networking, a big HDD, HDMI, etc. Their base of customers demanded these features.
Third, I'm no fanboy. I do own a PS3, but I understand why others might choose differently. For me I feel it's the right choice. I simply fail to understand why there is so much negative hype about it. It seems disingenuous, and in the case of the game availability, totally unfair.
Last, I'm not attacking anyone personally or being "derogatory." However, I am stating IMO where some of this criticism is coming from...from a certain demographic, if you will. I have every right to use sarcasm and to think what I do about those who are all hopped up about the Wii and 360 (mostly the Wii). I've seen it before with other products. That said, I'm certainly going to call a stupid and unsupported statement "stupid and unsupported." There is plenty of that flying around here. When someone says something like "The PS3 is a failure," and I'm going to nail him for a variety of reasons. Sorry if you don't like it.
