PS3: 2 down, 200+ still in the works

PlayStation 3PS3Land.com reminds us that the recent cancellation of two PlayStation 3 titles, FROM Software's Dark RPG and Black Blade, is not indicative of an impending domino effect. According to PS3Land, there are currently over 200 games planned for release on PS3, and that number is only going to grow.

So why are some of us so eager to sniff out the first signs of the PlayStation brand's demise? What makes a gamer anti-Sony? It seems that there is a growing suspicion -- among gamers, the media, and even developers -- concerning Sony's tactics. There's no denying that PS2 was (and is) a phenomenal success. But the PSP (sans homebrew) has been so darn stagnant. And the PS3 ... it's gonna be so frickin' expensive.

Is the everyday consumer, the one who likes to keep a current gaming system handy (mostly for Madden), gonna bite this time around? Will said consumer, who's never experienced a geek-out, really care about Blu-ray? And what about you? What do you make of this emerging bitterness? Are the underdog fanboys just jealous ... just using these fleeting pre-launch days to tarnish, however futilely, the PlayStation brand? Or is Sony actually doing some things wrong? Like, really wrong.
