Comment on "PlayStation 3"
by Grover — Mar 21
It's striking how different the PS3 environment is from iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, Wii, and Nintendo DS. Sony has released a consumer product that with design decisions that most Apple users most associate with "Pro" products like Xsan, Mac Pro and Aperture.

I think you've hit the nail on the head, and that this was exactly what they were going for. Sony is definitely trying to position their device as a "pro" gaming rig, where the hardcore want to go as opposed to the Wii's "everyone can play" mentality.

I haven't bit the bullet yet, but I've been thinking a lot about the PS3 lately. I'm coming from exactly the other direction; I bought a HDTV and now want something that really takes advantage of it. Like you, I initially balked at the price, but as it also operates as a blu-ray player, it's starting to look like a more compelling option every day.

When Little Big Planet comes out, I'll probably be powerless to stop myself.
