PS3 Link Love - 13oct06
It’s been a while since I’ve seen some analyst dudes say something about the console war, but recently some results from another analyst firm have been revealed. Interpret says that “8.9 million U.S consumers ‘are prepared’ to pay full price ($500 or $600) for the PlayStation 3 this fall, compared to 5.7 million consumers who are willing to buy Wii at $250 and just 800,000 people who are willing to pay full price for Xbox 360 ($300 to $400).”
