Here are my ideas on what could have made the PS3 more successful at launch. Yank Blu-ray: I think it is one of the few things actually keeping the system alive, but they overshot the HD market. $600 blu-ray player is a bargain, but who is ready for one? Aparently not many. Make it optional like 360's HD-DVD drive. Yank the motion control: It's gimmicky for PS3, and it seemed like a desperate move. Big ol hard drive: They are cheap, and getting cheaper everyday. Removing the blu-ray player would free up some costs to add a large hard drive for media options. I'm talking 500gb here. They only cost about $100 or so. Push the DVR aspect: DVR's are the hot thing. For those who already have one, it would be nice to have one with a much bigger hard drive, and combined with a gaming console. For those who don't? What a great excuse to get one. LinuxMCE would make a nice addition. The market for this is now. It should have been pushed from the get go, not an after thought. $299: At only $50 more than the Wii, a DVR based PS3 would seem like a heck of a bargain, and I think by removing blu-ray, it wouldn't eat their costs too much. Share your ideas.
