    If the "360 is Dreamcast Redux" stealth troll had been at the start of the article instead of the end, it would have saved me a couple of minutes. :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Agreed. Anyway this PS3 is most powerful and Wii is revolutionary discussions have been done to death. No need to retread old hat.

    It's a valid point whether people want to hear it or not. All it says is that a head start means nothing, and that a solid early software lineup also means nothing, in the grand scheme.

    Dreamcast was dropped by 3rd party publishers once PS2 launched in the US while 360 will have extremely good line-up next year and that's why this comparison is not valid.

    The article, going by the quotes, seems to ignore the strong game lineup from XB360. Why will hardcores buy PS3 for its extra power if the same games can be had in the same quality on a cheaper machine? There are certain self-appointed elitests who have to spend big bucks to get the 'best' of things (where the best is often bigger numbers and not much else) but I think theyre few and far between. Real hardcore gamers, which is a term too losely applied to cover mainstream gamers too, just care about the mainstream games - FPS, racers, sports, a few RPGs etc. - and they'll pick the platform that offers those games at a sensible pricepoint IMO.
