PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3)

RE: Sony "No PS3 Pricecuts Before Summer 09"
Well, those 5 DS are one-by-one purchase, not one-big-purchase-at-one-time. First I bought DS Silver (Fat), then DS Blue (Fat), then DSL Navy Blue, then DSL Crimson/black, then DSL White, then DSL Metallic Rose.
Even though I purchased 6 DS+DSL, 3 of them are not in working condition (either battery almost ran out, touch screen no longer responsive, cracked hinge etc).
Right now, I use DSL Crimson/black, my eldest son DSL White, and my second son and my wife share DSL Metallic Rose. This way, there will be no bickering over DS play time between my sons. The same reason (bickering) led to me having 2 Wii, 2 PS2, 2 GCN. I only have 1 PS1 since I didn't have children at that time, and by later days, my children is still too young to play game (<2 years old by the time I switched from PS1 to PS2).
Before I buy PS3, I need to also buy HDTV (yeah, I know, PS3 can be played on SDTV, but I don't feel that playing it on SDTV is enjoying it fully), which is one of the reason I didn't purchase PS3 / X360 yet.
I bought PS2 for Dynasty Tactics and FFX. So far, I don't see any single "must have game
" on PS3 yet. I bought Wii at launch because of Zelda 480p and waggle enabled on Wii (vs. Zelda non-480p on GCN), not because it have Wii sports.
I agree that PS3 offer many great games not on 360, but those games are not the games / type of games that I play. I don't play driving game/realistic sports game/FPS/fighting. I guess it all return to personal taste and preference, and so far, PS3 are not giving ME what I want, so no purchase from me. In fact, X360 is more appealing, with their exclusive RPGs : Lost Remmant, Blue Dragon, to name a few I played and enjoyed at my friend's house. If I have to choose
, I would choose X360 over PS3. Better price and better game (personal taste) win me over Blu-Ray.
Interesting note : I am one of the early adopter of DVD. I bought DVD player BEFORE I bought PS2. However, since Blu Ray need HDTV, I have no play to buy them UNTIL I have HDTV. PS3 with blu-ray didn't appeal to me yet, and might never will (since I prefer separate devide for different functionality, and I
use PS2 as DVD player).
After this long wall of text, do you feel you understand more why I don't have PS3, and yet I have 2 Wii and 3 working DSL (out of 6 I purchased) ?
