NYT slams the PS3

Seth Schiesel of the New York Times has given his impressions of his first 30 hours playing the PS3, and it is UGLY. Schiesel's article is peppered with phrases like, "Sony has failed to deliver", "Doesn't seem too complicated, but the PS3 can't do it", "tacked on and unpolished", "Sonyís technologists seem to have won out over the people who study fun", and, finally, "Your companyís new video game system just isnít that great." Ouch, ouch, and double ouch.

What's interesting about the review (beyond the obvious) is that Schiesel uses the Xbox 360 as the standard for comparison. It's interesting because it's the appropriate comparison to make, yet we haven't seen many such comparisons as everyone is in the middle of a PS3 vs. Wii frenzy (which, really is apples and oranges).

I can't comment on Schiesel's review as I'm still waiting on my PS3 to arrive. However, I can say that reading such a critique has reminded me how perfectly satisfied I am with my Xbox 360. Oh, then there's the Wii, which I can barely put down. Do I really need a third console? I think if I didn't work in the video game industry, the answer to that question would be a solid, "no".
