PS3 hardware slow and broken. It's from the Inquirer, so you skeptics get out your grains of salt.

This is a three order of magnitude oopsie, and it is an oopsie, as Sony put it "(no, this isn't a typo...)".


Originally posted by: Unknown You end up with a console with half the triangle setup rate of the 360, a crippled CPU that is a [content edited] to program, and tools that are atrocious compared to the 360. To make matters worse, you have an arrogant set of execs telling us that twice the price is worth it for half the power, a year late. If it isn't already too late, Sony had better do something about this recto-cranial inversion or it may very well sink the console.

It's going to be brutal for Sony. The 360's overheating problems pale in comparison.
