PS3 could still end up YoY with software, GTA V sure is a beast.

Still waiting for the non-barebones PS3 to hit $200... Sony you better do this soon or you're gonna miss out on your chance to hit 100m. I'm thinking E3 2014 at the latest.

Yea! 3DS and WiiU for the Win! Hope WiiU can hold out 4 more weeks, 3DS should dominate thanks to the 2DS and Pokemon.
