Who’s ready for a full-on Sony PlayStation 3 hate pile? Come, join the mainstream party like TIME magazine did. And this isn’t everyday, slight hate. This is big, OMG I hate you, hate. Feel the burn:
The big story in computer games this year was HOW TO BLOW A HUGE LEAD, by Sony. Its PlayStation 2 was the champ in the last round of the console wars. This time Sony bet on a chip called the Cell and a disc format called Blu-ray. They’re probably awesome, but how would anybody know? The PS3 is hideously expensive–it goes for up to $600–and Sony manufactured only a piddling few hundred thousand for the U.S., fewer for Japan. Plus it’s hard to write games for; the launch titles were lame. You know you’re in trouble when you get beat by something called a Wii.
Mmmm, can you feel that? Can you feel the beautiful hatred?
