I think it's because it takes so long to develop games for the latest generation of consoles, that it took several years for the PS3 and XBOX 360 to have any good titles. The Wii is unique in that the software was simpler and Wii Sports made it fun from day one. But PS3 was really a tough sell. When it came out all you could play was this silly truck racing game that wasn't fun compared to PS2 games and didn't even look that cool. We're just starting to see some good games for PS3 in the last year or two. For the next generation of consoles they should try to release some kind of developer kit years in advance.

Watch the video and decide for yourself.
