PS3 loses more exclusives

It's said that the rats are the first to abandon a sinking ship. While not rats, publishers are beginning to abandon the PS3 after its less-than-impressive launch and news of production woes. Three titles have pulled up stakes and moved to the Xbox 360 (as cross-platform).
Koei, long time PlayStation supporter (and company frequently billed as key support to win the generation) has pulled Fatal Inertia and Blade Storm: The Hundred Years' War from the PS3 exclusive list and plopped them squarely into the Xbox 360 camp. Another PlayStation staple, the Armored Core series, is also coming to the white box in the form of Armored Core 4.
Sony is going to be in for a difficult battle if key players keep moving over party lines; Microsoft is doing far better coaxing exclusive content over to the 360. If Sony continues to lose its differentiation, why should gamers continue to shell out up to $200 more just to play the same games? Enjoy this machine translation for those who can't read Japanese.
Wanna see a PS3 gagging on a disc like a dog gagging on a hairball? (I could use a different metaphor but my imagination would probably get me into trouble.): http://news.punchjum...out-of-the-box/ These guys (punchjump.com) received this PS3 brand new and out of the box the front loading disc tray failed horribly. I thought it was pretty amusing. Turn up your speakers so you can hear the choking sounds real good!
