Everyone's favorite sport these days is to dog on the PS3. Considering the price of the system, the problems folks have had playing it, the overall lack of decent software and the idiotic phrases that come out of the mouths of Sony executives, it's completely understandable.
That said, it is the PS3, and Sony more than proved its gaming prowess with its first two systems, so it would seem dangerous to count Japan's big boy out.
Take Folk Souls, for instance. A single glance at the screen shot to the right is all it takes not only to make my mouth water but long for a PS3.
I don't know much about it at this point, other than it's being prepped by Kouji Okada, the father of the legendary Shin Megami Tensei series, and that it's due out in Japan in June (with a possible U.S. release coming in the fall).
If Sony can work out some of its system's kinks and bring the price down to an appropriate level, I think this may just be my first PS3 purchase.
