A Means to Disseminate Honest-to-God Leaks

Wikileaks, though technically not a wiki, provides an easy means to disseminate information that some find it desirable to share against the wishes of those who find it desirable to keep secret. Aside from the morality of the leaking itself, such a service provides a look into the activities of...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Happy Birthday PS3!

Posted on Friday, November 16 @ 22:27:41 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Yep, in just a few hours, the PS3 will be one year old. In classic form, Sony sent us a bragging sheet that just goes to show you can use statistics to prove anything.

Not that the PS3 isn't a perfectly good console, with some good games and my favorite feelgood feature: Folding@Home. But I have to take issue with a few of Sony's claims. You can also read the full document from Sony.

Since the availability of the new 40GB and 80GB PS3 models, sales have increased by 192% at the top 10 retailers in North America.

Of course that introduction happened to coincide with the holiday season, when sales go up anyway.

5.6 million total hardware units sold worldwide, 2 million total hardware units sold in North America.

Not bad, but still a ways to catch up to the 360 and the Wii, both already over 13 million.

Worldwide sales goal: 11 million units by March 2008.

A reasonable goal, but Xmas is coming to the Wii and the 360 as well and you're still not caught up.

Year to date sales of PS3 in Japan and EMEA outsold Xbox 360 3 to1.

And worldwide, the Xbox 360 outsold the PS3 three to one in October (370,000 vs 120,000)

The first gaming system that’s a supercomputer, thanks to the Cell Broadband Engine™.

And your definition of "supercomputer" is?

The first system to provide users with an all-in-one home entertainment system to enjoy high-definition movies, music, photos, games, online entertainment, interoperability with portable devices and communication through VoIP and video chat.

Um.... Xbox Live?

The first system to be recognized by Guinness World Records™ as a result of Folding@home™, the fastest distributed computing network in the world.

Yay! I love Folding@Home

The first system to be compatible with a handheld device, in this case PSP® (PlayStation®Portable), providing users with ability to access PS3 content anywhere and anytime.

Unless you remember that the GBA also hooked into the Gamecube for new gameplay options.

I could go on, but my intent is to make fun of Sony's brag-sheet, not the PS3. Plus I really want to go play some more of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune!
