The PS3 looks like it's going to be a mess. They have reverted to their old controller getting rid of the boomerang, and have attempted to copy Nintendos idea of a motion sensitive device. (And loosing it's rumble for the motion sensor too.) I'm worried that Sony have been working on theis device for only months and it isn't going to be any where near as refined as the Wii's controller.
This kinda move makes me think that Sony are getting desperate, stuck in limbo between the "hardcore" gaming of the 360 and the "fun" gaming of the Wii giving them no real individual market except for their fans and any overlap with the other next-gen consoles. Also with the next GTA sequal on the 360 this next generation of consoles could be the start of Sony's downfall in the market.

Plus the PS3 looks like it's a George Foreman grill.

Same for me. And why the fuck are people drooling on this Wii thingy, huh? The whole shit is about controller, which if proves to be something really cool as advertised, will be cloned for any possible platform anyway... I am really sorry for their main manager (or something) guy to call this stuff Filozophy (sic!) - whats next, "white remote Religion"? Masturbating controler :shock: ?

I'd rather quit...

I am unsure of the meaning of this statement.
Some people talk because they have something to say. Others talk because they have to say something.

Awesome game.
