That's what you get for releasing a million expansions for EQ. Expansions have no place in MMOs. You should release new content periodically to keep your customers interested. One wouldn't subscribe to a magazine only to receive the same magazine every month.

Yah I don't believe the whole "Sony is behind on the console market" crap. In 2-3 years time both M$ and Nintendo will release new consoles.

The Wii is somewhat considered a re designed GameCube and they will likely release a revamped version soon. The 360 who was the first out of the gates (some might say embarrasingly) initially cost twice as much as it does now.

You really think M$ will say to itself "Oh we've made enough revenue so far." Or Nintendo will think it won't be able to further it's lead against either manufacturer with a redesigned console?

All while the PS3 can stay in the game for another 3-4 years. Sony will NOT drop the price any time soon. The earliest I ever see them lowering the price is around the Holiday season. What happens when all of these eye candy freaks say to themselves, "Hey these games aren't looking any better than they have. But look at those PS3 games!"

Sony needs to find a way to cut the MSRP of the PS3. In addition to this they need to do massive advertising, they need to make it abundantly clear to consumers that their console is the one to have.
Sony was able to that relatively well with the PS1 and PS2 and were extremely successful.

Sony does really need to cut the price of their console to get a model at that $200 sweet spot.

It surprising that they've keep up with the 360. It's sold faster for it's whole life (20 million PS3s over 2 years is 10 million a year, 28 million 360s over 3 years is 9 million a year), so at least it's doing better than the 360.

too bad for Sony, but they are not alone. perhaps the economic decline will help remove irrelevant products from store shelves and streamline these otherwise over bloated operating systems.. i mean businesses..:)
