Interesting, Antony. My "own" son wrote to me and evidently he got his PS3 on Friday. Here's what he had to say:
"Got my PS3 on Friday. All I can say is W O W! This machine is pretty freakin' incredible. Xbox is in for some serious competition. They also included a Blue Ray DVD of Taladega Nights. First time watching a hi-def dvd, it looked incredible. Even the games play in 720p max resolution, that is more than twice the res. of PS2 games, and will only get better after launch. As you can see I'm kind of excited about this. "
I sent this over to my wife's son who has been asked to return to the X-box 360 and asked him what MS intends to do about this incredible buyer frenzy over the Play Station. Haven't heard back from him yet. I hope for his sake that MS gets moving and doesn't sit on their collective behinds like they did with their browser.
