Sony; your PS3 might be tasty, but it’s not that delicious!

I’m thinking I’m going to take my pent up frustrations and go on a weekly rant Friday evenings. Here’s my thoughts on the upcoming Sony Playstation 3 vs the already available Microsoft Xbox 360.

So I get home and have some leftovers but I’m feeling not feeling quite full. No worries, there’s always the old stand-by, buck-a-slice pizza downstairs.

I’m not sure if the term buck-a-slice is universal, so let me elaborate. In downtown Vancouver, you can find an abundance of cheap, in terms of both price (usually $1Cdn/slice) and quality, pizza joints. This is especially true in areas with a high concentration of either ESL (english as second language) schools, bars or night clubs.

Downstairs from where I live, there are two of these pizza places side by side. The one on the corner serves a tastier pie. Everyone goes to the joint on the corner. So much so that they raised the price a bit last year and everyone, myself included, still went there.

So you might be asking, what the heck does this have to do with the next-gen console wars?


This was fine when it was say something like $1.25 vs $1.00 per slice. But I have to call bull-shit when the price is now $2.00 vs $1.00. Your pizza may be a better, but it’s not THAT good.

People are dumb gullible but sooner or later they are going to realize that it’s not worth paying that extra quarter or two for the same experience they can get next door.

Sony’s trying to convince everyone that the PS3 is filet mignon just because the PS2 sold like gangbusters and had arguably better games. You hear the Sony exec’s saying that people are going to have to work longer hours so they can afford to have the priviledge of buying this holy grail of gaming. Yeah right.

You’re still that cheap slice of pizza that gives me instant gratification. What makes you think I’ll spend six large for you when I can get the same for less with the 360 and half as much for the Wii?

Smart gamers will have seen through the BS already from Sony’s dismal showing at this year’s E3. Most parents won’t be able to afford a PS3 for their bratty kids, if they can even find one, given Sony’s production problems. Speaking of kids, how many kids would you know that would know the difference between a fine cut of meat and a hamburger from McDonald’s?

Thanks but no thanks Sony, I’ve already gotten my next-gen fill from the Xbox 360. If I do feel a bit peckish around Christmas, I’ll grab a quick snack with the Wii.
