These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: PlayStation 3
Awesome, but Impractical: The "Cell" microprocessor. In theory, it's an extremely powerful chip with much more power and parallel processing capabilities than a typical chip with its specs; on paper it blew the 360's processor out of the water. In reality, it was so hard to work with that the raw power didn't translate into better or smoother gameplay.
Fan Dumb: You're more likely to hear of PS3 fans going after critics for 8.8 or He Panned It, Now He Sucks scores of their exclusives, even if the game in question hasn't been released to the public yet.
Overshadowed by Awesome: By Wii and 360 from about 2006 to 2009. The 360 had a stronger lineup for most of that time and cost less, while the Wii's motion controls were blowing audiences away everywhere.
He Just Didn't Care: When asked to defend the $599 price tag, Ken Kutaragi said gamers should feel motivated to work harder so they could afford it.
Vindicated by History: PS3 got mixed to bad press from the moment it was revealed through launch and sold only 1.7 million units (compare to 2.2 million sales for GameCube and 3.2 million for Xbox360 in their first years) in its first year on the market, leading analysts & critics to ask if Sony was done as a console manufacturer. Fast-forward to 2013, when PS3 has edged out 360 for second place worldwide with 80 million sold, and has been the best-selling console of 2012 and 2013, with game lineups that put the competition to shame.
