Yea... consumers are idiots. Maybe that should be Sony's new slogan.
Global Hardware Sales: Wii: 95M 360: 65M PS3: 62M
Apparently the consumer knows what they like... PS3 is ok, but I like the 360 better. 360 has better controllers and XBOX Live is awesome (less than $4/month). There is a reason PSN is "free" (ie, you get to give away all your personal information to hackers). Another reason I don't like PS3 is their proprietary push for Blu_Ray. Garbage. What pay an addition $10 for the same movie because it's in a proprietary format. Dumb.
PS... The Vita is about to fail Miserably in the US. Fail. Proprietary Memory Cards (required). Fail. $50 for Uncharted. Fail. Price point. Will Sony ever learn?
