I just saw that BusinessWeek has posted a new story about Sony’s PS3 business, "This PlayStation May Play Too Much", by Tokyo-based Kenji Hall. Accompanying the story is an article called "Can Sony's Kutaragi Score Big?".
The articles recognizes the importance of this launch to Sony, and take a look at everything that the PS3 promises to be: “What sort of box is this? It could be a PC but Sony hopes it will be a PlayStation3”. ... "Six years in the making, the PS3 is a crucial component of Sony's strategy to dominate the digital home with a full lineup of super-sharp TVs and other gear."
Don’t get me wrong. Nobody thinks the PS3 will fail in the marketplace like the PSX did. And I think the digital entertainment features of the Xbox 360 are pretty amazing. But for those who love playing games, Sony needs to make sure that the PS3 is a great game console, at a price gamers can afford.
