PS3’s defining moment is around the corner

PS3I wasn’t able to sleep last night. Call me as someone without a life if you want, but my head’s just filled with thoughts of Wiimote operating the PS3. With that in mind, you probably would understand if Microsoft and Xbox 360 is not quite in my consciousness right now.

The Wii and the PS3 were just launched and as we have all conceded, Nintendo came up with its promised numbers. Even though Sony‘s having some problems with hardware supplies, I’m not abandoning my horse in this race.

Why? Well, there are a lot of reasons. But since you wouldn’t probably buy what I would say anyway, read this:

The PlayStation 3 isn’t always going to be in short supply. Several months from now, no one will recall a day when there was precious little chance of snagging the new console with Blu-ray capability. One has to wonder if the Wii controller system might eventually fall flat. Will users yearn for the days when one merely pressed buttons instead of waving a remote-control-like device?

Now, that is an interesting thought. I came across it today over at Yahoo. To be quite frank, the Wii is indeed selling like insane nowadays, simply because it is different. People tend to become curious, they tend to gravitate towards something new…at the start. But the moment  the novelty wears off, they will come running back to the comfort of age-tested methods: the SIXAXIS, the DualShock, the analog controller.

And when that time comes, there will be a helluva number of PS3 units waiting in the retail stores…
