Is your Playstation 3 collecting dust?

Is your Playstation 3 (PS3) collecting dust? Mine is. In fact, I have not turned it on in over two months. I am not yet ready to call it a piece of junk, but it has become rather useless for me. Hopefully that will change in the coming months.

It is not entirely the Playstation 3's (PS3) fault, rather it is Sony. The availability of games since the launch has been somewhat atrocious. In fact, I have not seen a game come out in the last 60 days that was even close to plopping down the $60 for. However, it looks like that will change in the next month with the release of Rainbow Six, FEAR. It really gets a little more attractive once Gran Turismo HD comes out. That is still a ways out though.

Further, I have really been playing my Nintendo Wii. For most games, and most recently Tiger Wood's 2007 by EA Sport -- the game play is much better -- and honestly more fun than with the PS3. Nintendo is our way ahead of Sony on the game play. If Sony does not get more and better games out there soon, there's no turning back.

Maybe I will just sell the PS3. Otherwise, it makes me sad to see the red light on the PS3 and watch it depreciate in front of my eyes.
