i am not sure how well ps3 will do, but wii & bluegragon for xbox360 certainly dented sony's confidence as sony lowered price on ps3 in japan (afaik 60gbyte model is around 500usd.
not only sony lowered price, sony opened up the system little bit more than their usual practice such as freely upgradable hdd, linux installability. i did not certainly expect sony to let users to replace hdd without a fight
even though americans leaned on sony more than any other places, sony has to reduce the initial supply of ps3 to create hypes & guranteed sold out.
now, i think ms needs to open up xbox360 more than right now; open up the wireless connectivity, hdd, dev tools (should be free), lower the price of live service, add motion sensitive controllers, and most importantly lower the price if ms wants to compete head to head with ps3 as ps3 will (at least i think) have linux which means tons of free games & software for ps3 wouldn't be a dream
i am wondering how much profits those who will buy ps3 will make tonight...a disaster isn't out of table imho
