Sony PlayStation 3 ReviewMe, in SuperSite for Windows:
As a diehard fan of Microsoft's Xbox 360, I fully expected to find plenty of issues with Sony's oft-delayed PlayStation 3 (PS3). The price is an obvious sticking point: A fully-loaded 60 GB version of the console retails for a horrific $600, a full $200 more than the premium Xbox 360 version. Availability, as I write this, is still an issue: The console has yet to ship in Europe and other major markets, and in the US, finding a PS3 is like winning the lottery: You have to be really lucky, and in the right place at the right time, though there are indications that this situation is finally improving. And then there are the technical issues: Shipping as it did a full year after the Xbox 360, the PS3 doesn't seem, at first glance, to offer much advantage over Microsoft's console.Yeah, it's really good. Really, really good. It's also really, really expensive, which is going to limit the PS3's appeal for the short term.
