Associated Content, known as "the people's media company", recently published an interesting list of the top pros and the top (bottom?) cons in the marketing and development of the PlayStation 3. The author, Chris Chang, looks at everything from the Cell processor to Mr. Kutaragi himself.

Even though Chang can't even spell Blu-ray correctly, the list is very interesting, with some points being obvious and others making you take a second look at the PS3. Here's a simple breakdown of the list, as organized by Joystiq:PROS

1. The technical power of the Cell
2. Blu-ray: more space (52G) is only a good thing
3. PlayStation is still the leader in the gaming industry
4. PSX, PS2 backwards compatibility (huge library of games)
5. Strong 3rd-party support
6. Controller: motion-sensing addition only a good thing
7. Online play (though still lackluster)
8. Standard harddrives
9. 1080p high definition gaming
10. Web browsing, just like the PSP
11. Connection to the PSP to enhance gameplay


1. Cost: we've said it a million times
2. Blue-Ray: too expensive storage medium
3. Size: the thing is big
4. High game prices
5. Architecture: Cell is too unique and could cause developer problems
6. No rumble
7. Even with redundancy, PS3 might have high defects at launch
8. Despite its strengths, the PS3 will only be marginally better than its competitors
9. Ken Kutaragi (will ruin the PS3?)
