    I seem to remember they went through some of the same pains after launching the PS2. You'd think they would have planned for this. Then again, I don't think demand for the PS3 is nearly as high as they'd expected.

    I think they:

    1. Underestimated the Wii
    2. Overestimated what people would pay for a console.

    2. Miscalculated that people will expect to pay for a game console and get your BD player for the price of a game console, not just be FORCED to buy both with no option. At least MS gave people a choice.
