People aren't necessarily looking for the most bang for the buck... they're looking more for how much bang for your buck you can get. The 360 and wii are both in prime positions for that. Also, they stated on the news yesterday NPD's numbers show the Gaming industry seems somewhat recession proof because it is doing so well... so Sony honestly can't even use that as an excuse for why they haven't performed better. LBP barely saw any advertising where I am, and the other I've never even heard of. The combination of high price and bad marketing are throwing a 1, 2 punch that is really hurting Sony this go around.

Madden, while undeniably a great game, does very little to differentiate itself from last year's version (or arguably any version in the past 5 years),
I have to disagree with you there. 08 and 09 are MILES beyond what the older games were. Madden got so bad I completely stopped buying it. I went to 2K5, which IMO still holds the title for best presentation and highlights of any football game ever, and at $20 it spelled out redruM all across the field on Madden. Saddly, it kicked EA's ass so much, they signed this BS deal we're still under with the NFL and no one else can sell a pro football game except them... I was really pissed, but in mid 07 they released 08... By far the best Madden ever, and 09 was a slight improvement upon it. Now if only they can find a REAL network to create the graphics for them as well as do halftime and end of game highlights and stats.This post has been edited by Elemino: Dec 17 2008, 05:18 AM
