The following story is tailored made to throw kerosene on the growing console flame-wars:
Game-makers Eidos has confirmed that it won't be releasing most of its major PS3 titles until next year, because the console's installed base will not be high enough before then.
CEO Jane Cavanagh said, "We believe that PlayStation 3 will be a successful platform, and are developing technology and products for this console. However, as we do not believe that the installed base will be high enough until the second half of our 2008 financial year, most of our major product releases on the PlayStation 3 platform are not scheduled before that date."
So there will be more games when more people buy PS3s. And more people will buy PS3s when there are more games. So all we need are enough people willing to buy a system without games so that developers can profitably create titles to please the people who didn't buy the system when there weren't enough games. Or not.
