SCEE president Andrew House told OPM’s Tim Clark at E3 that we’re going to see people buying PS3s as an “upgrade” from less powerful consoles later this cycle
“If you look back at previous lifecycles, like PS2 versus N64, we have lots of data that suggests that lots of people bought into N64 as their entry level gaming device, and were happy to upgrade to a more powerful machine later in the lifecycle when the price point was right for them,” he said.
“I think we’re going to see this later on PS3, and the fact that it’s a Blu-ray player as well and that there’s a [greater] wealth of network based experiences than are perhaps available on the device they already have will add to the proposition. I think that will definitely be a factor in the marketplace.”
There’s a full interview here.

OXM will include the New Xbox Experience dashboard update in it’s next issue.
Now, those without internet access with be able to obtain the new UI with the included disc. You will need this eventually: soon it’ll be a non-negotiable update to play new games.
The bright side to being forced into the 21st Century is that you along with the rest of us will have a goofy avatar.
Progress is a wonderful thing.
