NYT: Wii vs. PS3

It's always nice when the corporate media covers video games in a respectable manner, and to be honest, that's happening more and more as the media realizes that video games are a $12 billion biz.


All cynicism aside, this NYT article (watch out for the Poltergeist-esque picture) treats fairly the battle between the Wii and the PS3. It's a great article for those of you who haven't been following the battle closely, and for those that have, the article does bring up a few overlooked points such as the fact that the Wii is expanding the gaming audience in general, which can only mean good things for Sony and Microsoft in the long run.

The summary, of course, is that the Wii is doing great, is sold out everywhere you look, and lots of people still want it. Meanwhile, PS3s are sitting on store shelves as Sony PR tries to do damage control such as this choice quote:


Dave Karraker, a spokesman for Sony Computer Entertainment of America, said the Wii did not belong in the same category as the more powerful PlayStation 3. “Wii could be considered an impulse buy more than anything else,” he declared.

It's like saying that a Honda Civic is an impulse buy. Again, backwards thinking from Sony. You see, if anything is the impulse buy, it's the PS3. Continuing the analogy, the PS3 is like a Corvette: expensive, shiny, lots of horsepower, but not very practicle. That's the impulse buy. The Civic, on the other hand, gets you around town, is reliable, is affordable, and gets good gas mileage.

When is Sony going to get its act together?
