It is likely that Sony is attempting to demonstrate why the PlayStation 3 is worth the higher price by showcasing the quality of Blu-ray movies on the console. It remains to be seen, though, whether Australians will agree. Although the device is $600 in the United States, gamers down under will end up paying closer to $750.
Maybe I’m missing something. To view Blu-Ray titles, don’t you need HDTV?
My bet is that the Wii is selling to people who still have conventional TVs. Which is still most people.
