If the PS3 had a close price point to the 360 then the PS would have been able to easily keep their lead. this way I think the 360 is going to gain a lot of ground. *sigh* And they took out the rumble pack?!? what on earth for?!? If Sony is looking to Nintendo to steal ideas then I have serious concerns about them staying in the lead.
This really isn't a change in policy.
Sony 1: OK, let's make the PlayStation. What's the controller gonna be?
Sony 2: Oh! I know! An SNES pad with two extra shoulder buttons!
Sony 1: Great!
(one year later...)
Sony 2: Holy crap, Nintendo's putting a tiny little joystick on their controller!
Sony 1: Let's put two on ours!
Sony 2: But our controller's already on the market!
Sony 1: Make a new one!
Sony 2: Crap! Their controller shakes!
Sony 1: NO! Quick! Make ours shake too!
In fact, come to think of it...
Sony 1: Let's make the PS2!
Sony 2: Great! We'll kill Sega!
Microsoft: Pfft, we're joining in, and our machine is online *and* has a harddrive.
Sony 1: *whispers* can our machine do that?
Sony 2: *whispers* no
Sony 1: OUR MACHINE CAN DO THAT TOO!
Sony 2: What the hell are you doing?!?
Sony 1: *whispers very harshly* our. machine. can. do. that. too.
Sony 2: Gaddammit! I'm not gonna have weekends for a freaking year.
*pouts and stomps away*
