Ohhhh, snap! Sis-site Kotaku dug up some dirt: When the Editor-In-Chief of the OFFICIAL publication of the console says she'll be picking up an XBox instead of a PS3, you have to pay attention. On her blog, Dana Jongewaard, gives her reasons: Mainly, she has an old TV, and no surround audio setup, so she doesn't care about Blue-ray, or any of the other fancy-shmancy specs. For her, the bottom line is that $600 price. It's just more Pony money!
Some choice quotes, after the jump. And for more Wii vs. Xbox vs. PS3 rumble-deathmatch, hit up Kotaku.
Contrary to popular belief, editors of the Official PlayStation Magazine don't get free hardware for their own personal use...After Kaz announced that the price would be $600, I found my enthusiasm sagging....I can probably get the Wii and the 360 combined for the cost of a PS3...BluRay, is frankly something I don't care about. I have a crummy 12-year-old 21-inch very-non-hi-def TV sitting on my stand at home...I've never been an audiophile—as long as I can hear it, I don't care if it's mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1—I really don't care how high-res the picture is. My bottom line is that as long as it has color and is free from static, I'm good to go...I hope that the price drops soon so I can consider it. But until then, this Official PlayStation Magazine editor will have to join the dark side.
