Get Two for the Price of a PS3

Microsoft, courtesy of Peter Moore, are at it again. This time they sided with Nintendo saying that for the price of both the Xbox 360 and the Wii, a consumer could buy one PS3.
"Tell me why you would buy a $600 PS3?" Said Peter Moore, head of the Microsoft Xbox 360 division, during an interview at E3. "People are going to buy two (machines.) They're going to buy an Xbox and they're going to buy a Wii ... for the price of one PS3."

While the pricing of the Nintendo Wii has not been revealed, it is expected in the 4th quarter this year and should retail for less than the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Moore also spoke positively of the Wii at E3 saying, "People will always gravitate toward a competitively priced product, like what I believe Wii will be, with innovative new designs and great intellectual property like Mario, Zelda and Metroid."

He also made clear where Xbox 360 stands, at least for now, in the next generation console battle, "We have 100 percent market share of the next-generation, and their job is to take that from us."
