    PS3 is the only console that beats itself consistantly year over year.

    apparently, analysts everywhere think there’s going to be a PS3 shortage this holiday season, so that’s both good and bad lol

    I think thats amazing. in 3wks they sell a million units. But i ask myself why do i have a ps3 insteads of a 360. and now that answer is very clear. 1blu-ray, 2 better games than 360, yeah the 360 may have alot more games but the majority of there games SUCK, 3 FREE online play. and 4 MAG, Uncharted 2, Remastered GoW 1&2, Ratchet and Clank and GoW3 these games alone would kill any game on 360. 😉
