PS3: Unsellable?

Owning a PS3 has become a badge of shame.
It has sucker written all over it.
- Ordeith

It's (un)official - the PS3's incredible price and lack of games that the 360 doesn't have are starting to kill it. Also, see how the Wii fared by comparison.

The problem is bipartite:

  1. The PS3 costs too much.
  2. The PS3 offers less new stuff compared to the XBOX 360 as the Wii does, which means less incentive to buy the PS3.
It's really that simple. Unbelievable as it may seem, this is an early indicator that the almighty PS3 is losing the console war, as we've seen before with the Dreamcast (great system) and the Saturn. The PSP has also become 2nd dog.

What remains to be seen is how the PS3, and Sony, can fair with the PS3 never gaining top or 2nd spot, ever.
