This all bullshit speculation. How can someone, say what he's said, especially with the current state of things? PS3 is getting it's ass kicked, hardcore. They can't sell the things at current prices. Fanbois are the only ones buying them. The rest are sitting on shelves, wasting space. When Japan drops the price on the newest PS's then you know there's a serious problem. has this guy even read all of the backlash out there, as far as, people wanting a gaming system and not a next generation DVD player?

Hmm, do trends even matter?

I have a feeling Sony is now paying people to write up baseless bullshit like this guy.
Does anyone actually know a person who wants a PS3? I don't and my friends are all gamers.
Same reasons, as for not wanting one....
1) Too expensive
2) Don't need/want a Blu-Ray player
3) No games
4) Too expensive

The Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD is also pure speculation
More trends -

Personally I believe HD-DVD will win or both formats with coexist because -

1) HD-DVD is cheaper to manufacture
2) Porn has chosen HD-DVD as it's main format
3) Blu-Ray is Sony's format - this makes, some people hate it, period.
4) Much more expensive to manufacture

Blu-Ray's only plus is more storage, but don't we have way too many, trivial extras, on movie disks and do we really need 1,000,000 cgi-cutscenes, in game? Blu-Ray space is only a plus on the pc storage side of things.

Anyway, to paraphrase, that article is total bullshit....the end:D
