Is there any reason left to buy a PS3?

The Playstation 3 has to be the most disastrous console launch ever. Even worse than the Virtual Boy which ruined your eyes. For the love of all things holy it's ugly, it has no rumble, a piss poor attempt at motion sensing, and all for a bargain £450.

Now while I've been mocking the PS3's sales figures and following Europe At War on UK Resistance, Geeky Tom has followed a different path. He clung to fact that PS3 would win in the end "because Metal Gear Solid 4 is only going to be available on Playstation". I have to admit that his point scared me. Solid Snake would probably make me want to pony up half a grand for the room heating monolith - the thought of using that useless controller to break people's necks in a left to right motion, awesome. Maybe Sony would win the war after all.

And then came the news that Metal Gear Solid 4 would be coming out on the Xbox 360 as well. I'm crying with laughter now, because it's also coming out on the Wii. How did Sony get it so wrong? Their quest for the most powerful console has actually backfired on them, making it so expensive to create games for that developers aren't prepared to do exclusives any longer. So what reason is there left to buy one now?

HAHA, much like the trailer where you say snake shoot himself in the head while sucking on his pistol.

I think the PS3 has just committed suicide
