"Would you buy the cheapest baked beans or the best value baked beans? Me I buy the best value beans."
No, i buy the cheaper beans because they don't taste any different and they're cheaper. Therefore i save more money for other things i want to buy and don't shoot myself in the foot. I can also afford to buy two tins instead of one.
"Would you buy the cheapest car or the best value car? Me I buy the car. Clearly the roads are not full of ladas and trevants, so I think most people think the same..."
You buy the car? Ladas and trevants? This is the most ridiculous argument ever. Clearly you have no understanding of a "Cheap" car?
"Same applies for consoles."
STOP. You're argument fell apart earlier, you bring up cheap beans and cars and expect to follow that through with a console analagy? Oh dear.
"The PS3 is by far and away the best value console right now."
In your opinion. It depends on what you as the consumer want, which is why we have choice and I for one am glad that there is such thing. You could argue that the 360 is the best value because of its choice of packages, its back catalogue and the fact that they're not forcing features upon you. You could argue that the Wii is the best console as you may not have a HDTV and you want a new gaming experience.
The problem in these forums is that people are inflicting THEIR experiences and their needs. This is why you're in here and not out there marketing these products because you do not understand the general public. You only understand yourselves.
"Sure there will be cheapskates who want it cheaper, but that would sacrifice quality, and make it no better than the crappy 360, and these people will always want something cheaper, most of the people crying about PS3 cost, are those that cried to Sony last time, about launch PS3's being to expensive, and the same ones crying about losing hardware PS3 compatability due to cost reductions. Go Figure...."
And there it is, the argument instead falls into the usual MARK type insults that he frantically types trying to conjure together something to wind up his 360 or nintendo counterparts. Any console that is the highest cost on the market to the consumer will be the console that gets the complaints, FACT. It always happens to be the most unpopular one. You will not be happy until everyone is singing the PS3 praise, and even then you'll still not be happy.
Its all very very sad. Try playing on your console. Or do you not actually do that?
"If you want quality, you have to pay for it. PS3 offers insane amounts of value, at a very reasonable price."
Try explaining some day what this insane amount of value is, and do it like a man, and do it logically without comparing it to another console. Try to help us understand what it is that you love so much about it. Then someone may actually listen to you.
"Paris, she is cheap and nasty like the 360..."
