PS3 – Baby

So far everything I’ve read about the soon-to-be-released Playstation 3 just leaves me cold (not the least of which being the $600 price tag), and now they’ve gone one step further and creeped me and Mrs. Monkey the feck out.  I saw this clip last night, and it literally made me shudder.  Granted, as we’re just shy of Halloween, I’m sure that was it’s intended effect, but c’mon.  Is revulsion really the emotion Sony wants associated with the PS3?  See for yourself.  All in all, it’s just one more reason for me to lean towards the Nintendo Wii.

As an aside, does the fact that Sony is shamelessly using the Spider-Man movie font for the logo annoy anyone else?

    Come now alpha…

    Surely you’re taking the whole PS3 thing a little too personally no?

    Well, I’ll be honest with you: The PS3 hates our freedom.  There, I said it.

    That’s just wrong…

    Pre-Chucky… Baby is creepier than the dancing babies.

    Video gaming is my #1 hobby so yeah, I certainly have my opinions and they’re pretty much in line with what you said.  For at least the next year, it’s Wii60 all the way for me.  (with a little of my beloved DS mixed in to taste)

    What just kills me is the idea that after you get the console, after 5 games you’ll have spent $1000 dollars on the PS3.  There’s just no way I can justify that.

    What really sold me on the Wii was the idea that (beyond the $250 price tag) I could download NES, SNES, and N64 for $5 dollars a pop.  With kids on the way in Feb, I like the idea of a console that can play all those great all ages games I loved as a young’n.

    I definately heard that A.M.

    Wii all the way for me also. I’ve got a PC that plays games already, so getting a 360 or a PS3 is just silly and redundant.

    I’ve always been a huge gamer, and for a long time I was all about Sony products. But now, the more I look into the PS3 the more I want to recreate the scene from Dogma where Matt Damon kills at those executives. Go Wii!
