    PS3 vs Nintendo 64

    N64 technology aimed at technology in the past (cartridge)

    PS3 technology aimed at technology way to far in the future (1080P HDTV set)

    Both will have similar fates.

    Conservatively, it will be at least 3 to 5 years before 1080P sets are common place in this country....and much longer in other places of the world.

    Less than 10% of the population (in the US) even have a 1080i/720P set. And to take advantage of anything higher than standard DVD picture quaility from the DVD player (movies), you need a HDMI port...to which probably only 10% of the 10% of HDTV owners even have !!!!

    Yet, Sony has decided to take MASSIVE losses and instituted huge delays on the PS3 console to make it take advantage of 1080P, which as stated above, will take many years to be common place. This is insanity beyond anything I can comprehend from a company as large and as successful as Sony.
