Madden 08 shoddy PS3 effort: debate continues

The gist of the article is that Madden's poor PS3 performance will invigorate negative perception toward the PS3. They are right. Because Madden is so popular, it's going to put a dent in the PS3's credibility at least until Madden 2009 (when EA figures it out).

I'm annoyed at this defense:

He added that his analyst colleagues might be better off focusing elsewhere: "The PS3 is a fantastic console, and anyone who has one knows it's awesome. The Xbox 360 is also fantastic, but has no Blu-ray playback, and has been plagued with warranty issues.

I beg to differ. Cited is Blu-ray playback, which really isn't that essential, but videophiles can't lay off of. There's no games for the PS3, the user interface is a joke, and gaming online with it is boring. Many PS3 owners are still waiting for a "Wow", which seems like it will never come.

While it is disheartening that there are some 360 hardware issues, people are quick to forget that Sony did the same damn thing. But the PS2 had the selection of games so it prevailed. This time around, the tables are turned the PS3 has no games and the 360 has the best selection. At least Microsoft is taking responsibility for the hardware issues unlike Sony. Disc Read Error...Disc Read Error...Disc Read Error....I won't forget that Sony, and neither will all those PS2s.

In my case, fun ceases as soon as the black taco is turned on for whatever reason. Still waiting on that Final Fantasy to make my opinion take half a 360 degree turn. And we need that rumbling SIXAXIS stat!
