Was the PS3 this infamous at launch?

The point you make is the same as mine, you do not buy new systems for launch titles.

No but maybe getting a bone tossed to you in the first two to three years would be nice.

I'm sure people can draw parallels to the situation.
Though I do believe you can't apply the PS3 bouncing back to the Xbox One.

True. Not only has MS reversed most of the complaints pre-launch (unlike Sony) but we're still two months away from launch so it's way too early to know if it will take several years to catch up (like Sony).

Sony, E3 2006:


Of course, Microsoft didn't do much better this time around.

We'll see once the xbox one hits the market. I recall Sony made the challenge where for every PS3 you can find on store shelves holiday 2007, they would give you $100. Not sure if it was an actual challenge though...

Probably worse than this at launch tbqh. Mainly because Sony took a few direct shots at people not working hard enough to own their console, like it was something they had to earn.

MS may have taken a few stupid moves and earned a lot of heat, but I don't think I'd ever seen as much heat on a console launch as for the remark "You'll get another job to buy this system/will work two jobs to buy it."
