Despite the increased capacity of Blu Ray discs, it just wasn't worth it for a lot of people. In it's simplest form - Xbox 360 and PS3 both played games in HD. A £150-ish (IIRC) price difference is a hell of a lot. You could almost buy an Xbox 360 AND a Wii for the same price as a PS3!
Most people don't have bottomless wallets, and that's what it comes down to in the end.
This. If people don't have the money, they don't have the money and if you can play almost the same games for £150 less, then the PS3 looked poor value. The price was the sole reason I was given a 360 over a PS3. Had they been the same price, it would have been the PS3, which was my prefered choice.
And I'm sure many people all over the world made decisions on this basis.
and Sony still haven't learnt with the Vita either.
