The PS3 Hype Machine Gets in Gear

Like the slow kid trying to finish the race, there seems to be a welter of stories touting the PS3 as ‘almost succeeding’ , ‘almost beating the Wii’ or ‘headed on an upward trend’ and such. Now finally there is actually a story on the PS3 beating the Wii in Japan. Of course it’s unclear how much significance it has. Japanese are mostly not Christian and have no Black Friday or holiday shopping season. Sony’s price drop would promote the PS3 but it’s not clear that this period is an intensive shopping season in Japan so there’s no reason why a PS3 could not beat the Wii during a fall off period when in any case anyone who really wanted a Wii already had one.
