Each year's edition of MLB: The Show. I ain't afeared to admit it.

If you've ever tried using GFW Live on PC, you wouldn't be willing to pay for it either.

It's a bit of a slap in the face to their console users, though. I'd recommend you all cancel your acounts in protest and buy PS3s.

I picked up a 60GB last September when I heard Sony was stopping production and stripping the PS2 GPU/CPU out of future SKUs.

"If you bought the PS3 solely for FFXIII *this early*, i.e. before the game itself has any hint of a release date, you deserve your fate."

Yeah -- I highly doubt FF13 will be released next year, more than likely sometime in 2010. In terms of console sales of one vs. the other, Final Fantasy XIII is a very tiny piece of a much bigger puzzle. Console sales aren't being determined by one game. (Except Halo 3 and to a lesser extent, MGS4 ... but FF13 isn't in the same category as those games in NA and Europe.)

Besides, by the time 2010 rolls around, console sales would have already been impacted by a million other things. How fast and how far can MS and Sony drop prices in the next two years? Will Blu-Ray ever really take off as more people replace their TVs with HDTVs? Will Sony's lineup of exclusives ever break through to the mainstream and create a Wii Play or Gears/Halo level of buzz?

As far as people who already own a 360 or a PS3, the only thing I see convincing them to buy the other system in large numbers would be a significant price drop. I'm not entirely convinced it's the games b/c both platforms have a solid list of exclusives already. And those lists will just get longer as time goes by. But if each console still costs $350 or $400 in a lousy economy like ours, that's a tough splurge purchase to justify.

But once you can get a 360 or PS3 for $199 or $249, you'll see a lot more people crossing the fence.
