If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s probably the funniest Wii vs. PS3 parody video yet. Not that I know of that many. But this one is the best.
It turns out there will be more PS3’s for the rest of us, since the editor of the Official Playstation Magazine - get this - isn’t buying one. Apparently the salaries that magazine pays its editors do not include $600 discretionary expenses.
But is Ms. Jongewaard mistaken? After all, the Official PS3 Web site is now detailing all of the wonderful benefits of the system, including its Blu-ray technology, and the bonus feature of the extra adapter you get to pay for if you want to save PSX and PS2 games. An excerpt from the benefits site*:
“$600 in $1 bills would weigh approximately 98 lbs. Carrying this amount of weight could physically strain the average gamer to the point of coronary heart failure in a mere 4 seconds. Therefore the PlayStation 3 removes the danger of a heart attack and replaces it with the opportunity for hours of safe, stationary entertainment.”
Besides, all of that is trifling compared to the $900 you’ll pay for an HD-DVD enabled XBox 360, according to the Internet’s favorite news source, an unconfirmed rumor.
