    Insanity. Gaming is the biggest entertainment industry in the world. MW3 has made double what avatar did. Sony especially because these consoles tend to be partnered with televisions, Sony would benefit there too. (I know this isn't the best phrased argument but I'm really hungover. Leave me alone internet.)

    The fact that a crappy, overhyped game made double of an overhyped, crappy movie just goes to show where the world is today in terms of how many idiots are good at blowing their money. Maybe it is time for consoles to die off so companies take a step back and remember how to make good, quality games again, instead of releasing buggy messes and using us as paying beta customers.

    Strange that you think that when both that movie and that game got very good reviews. Clearly somebody liked it.

    Is that a Justin Bieber CD in your pocket? He's making good sales as well, so clearly that s*** is worth investing in.

    Teen girls! There's a demographic for everything! the Biebstr... unfortunately, sells. But hell, he makes my daughter happy. As long as she plays him with her headphones in. Hating on Avatar and MW3 (especially when besides th original poster's point) is moot at best!

    Typical internet post. I don't own MW3 or Avatar. Noticing the sales figures doesn't mean I like it. Its just the truth. Games make money. A company like Sony likes money. That was the point I was making.

    Okay Dave, you are pretty smart and all. But you got the Xbox thing all wrong. The next Xbox console will still have a strong focus on playing games. Your dashboard argument is shenanigans because you literally start on the Play Now button or however it is phrased. Allowing you to instantly bypass all the crap you don't want to look through and play your game. The next console will certainly be more then just for gaming. But that does not mean the next Xbox will be primarily for watching Netflix or whatever else they cram onto it. Them completely bowing out of the console wars is just not possible. It might be a couple of years before either of them make another console, but they will make one. This will continue for a long time, as long as both companies are still making money, there is no reason to disregard such a massive market that is only getting bigger. The better games get, the more gamers there will be. This will obviously lead to a pretty healthy group of consumers who can buy their product

    The fact there is a load of "crap you don't want" in the first place is utterly dispicable if you ask me. Cheap, nasty nickel and diming. Trying to force more and more services on people who only wanted one. Worst thing that's ever happened to the Xbox, and I'm including the RROD fiasco in that.

    Trying for force what? you do not have to be apart of any of the services they offer. Microsoft and Sony are being smart by offering more entertainment on their consoles. The only time people stop playing video games is to get on youtube or their computers in general, so why no offer them these same services right on the console. Also, people didn't only want one service.. there are probably more people who want the Xbox to do more then less. So your point is just utter crap. Try not to get so mad bro

    Another good, thought provoking article Dave! I would love to see this generation get a few more years. I've not even bought a PS3 yet, was going to just after xmas but held off due to persistant PS4 rumours. If they are sticking to a 10 year cycle, then I'll definitely take the plunge on one, been itching to try out a bunch of Sony's first party efforts.
