At the end of the day, $249 is simply the perfect price for Sony's hardware. It's at the same range that most of us are paying for high end cell phones, and it's competitive with the 3DS. Am I going to buy it at that price range? Hell, no. However, it's a price that any marketer could sell with all the features. It one ups Nintendo with processing power and the only thing we'll have to wait on is the battery life.
That's the big question.
Sony brought the beast this year. That big awkward beast that stumbles in and out of a room, but still gets the job done. As far as presentation goes, it was a head above the 360's offerings in gaming. It was way below in content and actual presenters. So at the end of the day, they kinda tied it up. I felt happier throughout the Microsoft conference, but a lot of the Sony games stood up and did their jobs.
I was content with both conferences in completely different ways. Which is a pretty good thing for me overall.
I'd have liked to have seen more games geared towards my interests from both parties, but I've learned to accept that throughout the years.
