The Potential Of Ps3 Games Console

The Potential Of PS3 Games Console
The word wars between Sony and Microsoft just won't die down .​
With Microsoft's Peter Moore's ragging about the​ PS3 games console's price,​ surely,​ people don't expect the​ Sony CEO,​ Steve Howard,​ to​ turn the​ other cheek .​
It's pathetic to​ see two guys in​ power suits and power ties bicker like two kids in​ a​ playground .​
Sounds to​ me like they're fighting about who could spit the​ farthest .​
But since Moore has been hounding publicity,​ well,​ we​ might as​ well give shy Howard a​ chance to​ defend his PS3 games.
It can be recalled that Peter Moore of​ Microsoft used Sony console's price as​ a​ spring board in​ launching a​ new Xbox 360 marketing campaign .​
Moore released statements that gamers get more value in​ buying a​ Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox 360 for the​ value of​ a​ single PS3 games console .​
No doubt that the​ statement made even hard-core Sony fans hesitant about buying a​ PS3 .​
After all,​ $600 is​ big money .​
Plus,​ the​ possibility given by Moore is​ a​ no-brainer: it​ is​ a​ choice between two next-gen consoles and more gaming options or​ one PS3 .​
Sony has to​ act; and the​ usually quiet Steve Howard finally broke his silence.
In a​ recent press conference in​ Tokyo,​ Sony Corp's Steve Howard released a​ statement justifying the​ new Sony console's price .​
He claimed that the​ in​ buying a​ PS3 games console,​ the​ consumers are actually buying potential .​
Such a​ vague statement needed further clarification and Howard obliged .​
According to​ him,​ though the​ PS3 console is​ admittedly pricier ($599) than Microsoft's Xbox 360 ($300) or​ Nintendo's Wii($250),​ it​ provides users Blu-ray technology-- touted to​ be the​ technology of​ the​ future .​
Further,​ if​ the​ new Sony console's performance reaches its full potential,​ users would benefit from higher technology and longer years of​ use .​
Howard also implied in​ his statement that Xbox 360s and the​ Wii's are cheaper because they are merely transitional consoles with inferior technology when compared to​ the​ futuristic PS3.
However,​ market analysts and yours truly,​ seriously doubt this claim by Howard .​
Times are hard,​ and people are sure to​ think about whether the​ PS3 games console deserves its price tag .​
This can look bad quickly for Sony because reviews show that PS3's Blu-ray-supported graphics are only equal to​ that of​ the​ cheaper consoles .​
If there are differences,​ these are highly indistinct,​ unless you want to​ spend game time analyzing the​ graphic pixels .​
Even the​ controller is​ deemed inferior to​ that of​ the​ PS1 from seven years ago .​
In fact,​ the​ Wii sports a​ much better controller .​
Also,​ Howard's potential-based argument is​ stretched too thin and poorly supported .​
What if​ the​ new PS3 didn't reach its full potential? Then,​ there is​ the​ case of​ disappointed consumers whining over their loss .​
What about the​ long years of​ use? I​ doubt that five years would pass before the​ gaming giants come up with a​ new console prototype .​
Surely,​ Howard can come up with something stronger than an​ argument based on​ potential .​
PS3 games enthusiasts need more fuel for their cause .​
Meantime,​ do you know what I'm excited to​ hear about? Peter Moore's response to​ Sony's potential.
