Sony is being left behind
IMO Blu-ray is what has hurt it. They were banking on the user base to win the format war, that didn't work. That's called banking on the future. When Warner rolled over and handed them the victory they were still stuck with a machine that was too expensive for most people. and now they have to live with that.
Personally I think it was an arrogant assumption that they would naturally dominate that lead them to make a machine that is too costly to allow them to dominate the install base.
I don't have much experience with the PS3, but I do agree MS has been very clever to make their system one that gets better over time through software upgrades. And an affordable one at that.
wait you call the cross-media-bar complicated, the PSN store complicated and you bash it for not delivering video to europe?
well my friend:
1. i find the cross-media-bar is more simplistic than the 360dashboard, because it's easy to navigate and you know where everything is (PIS!!!! that's why the 360 had to design a new dashboard)
2.the PSN store has a search bar, easy to see new content, good seperation and descriptions (and yes some thing are a little wierd but the other stuff makes up for it)
3. and had the HD dvd survived the 360 probably would not have Netflix at this stage. and i live in europe and you can create an american account and buy videos from the american store, becasue thePS3 has no REGION LOCK.
