    He may have some points on some thing but if he doesn’t think they are going to sell 1 million in a years time he’s out of his tree.

    I don’t know if PS3 will be as big for Sony as 1 and 2 but it will sell just because it’s Playstation at lest at the start.

    He never was the President of "Atary".

    I meant to type "Atari Founder" in the title. Oh well.

    He has a few good points but the not selling 1 million units I think is far off. Maybe 5 or 6 would've been better which I believe would be below the current X-Box 360 level. Sony will sell a lot of units on brand name and it's fan base but I don't see it being the market leader it was with the PS2, especially with a $600 price.

    They'll probably sell a couple million but I see the 360 and the Wii outselling it by alot more.

    Damn. All I want is my Metal Gear Solid 4 and Gundam! Maybe if I freeze myself for a year then I'll have a shot at getting one!

    *joking*

    Yeah as a die-hard Sony/Nintendo fan I'm excitied about the Wii(my friend who works at Target is getting one) and the Ps3 but with so much negative press about the Ps3 it worries me of Sony's success in the future. I only hope that Sony or Nintendo come out on top in the next-gen wars. So many friends I know are pissed at Microsoft for what they did for online content, memberships, and the fact of paying for the online feature of a game they already paid top dollar for. If x-box had free online then I'd be willing to play HALO right now and probably for a good while. Oh well, nobody's perfect!

    The PS3 will sell millions and it will easily catch up and surpass the 360's sales. The simple reasoning for this is that anybody who wants to play MGS4 or FFXIII need a PS3. The software will drive the systems sales and although there isnt alot to choose from right now,once the big name games come out such as those two then sales are going to skyrocket.

    Though I have no love of Sony this is coming from the man who nearly destroyed the video game industry by allowing it to stagnate, and failing to push any sort of quality control.
