Submission + - Is PlayStation 3 "the great unwanted console&#

TobyToadstool writes: CNET says that the PlayStation 3 is "the most unwanted console in recent memory" and asks "why is the PS3 so undesirable?" Focusing on the UK launch this month, the article ponders why it's so easy to get hold of a PS3 in the UK: "Right now, it's about as hard to get a PS3 for launch as it is an orange in California". CNET also questions Sony's wisdom in "emphasizing the 'power' of the PlayStation console over its games... inviting developers to neglect gameplay and invest heavily in these amazing graphics."
