The PS3 will die a quick and painfull death and here's why
1. when a next gen hungry buyer goes into a store and sees a shiny new 360 or PS3 raincheck what do you think that buyer is walking out with besides a couple hundred dollars in his pocket
2. better hardware doesn't mean good gaming (i.e. PSP, Xbox, saturn, Neo Geo...etc)
3. PS3 Online Service itself will be free they are going to nickel and dime you into bankruptcy (i.e. GT HD)
4. Gears of War!!!!!!!!!
just for the record i loved ps2 hated xbox so i ain't hatin
