PlayStation 3 is future proof?

According to this Gizmodo Australia article, 75% of current functionality of the PlayStation 3 has been added (via firmware updates) since the initial launch. The part that to Don's dismay: Australian Sony Computer Entertainment (aka PlayStation boss) Michael Ephraim claimed that PlayStation 3 has proved it was “future-proof” since launch. I am pretty sure that Don would find a number of counter-proofs that Xbox 360 is much better than PlayStation 3. Why? Brand matters.

So since the initial launch in March 2007, new features include:
ability to play PSOne downloaded games, DLNA functionality, upscaling DVDs, Remote Play, PlayStation Network, Blu-ray profile 2.0 became functional, DivX and XviD playback was added, as were trophies, VidZone, PlayTV support and Flash support in the internet browser.
That's not all, 3D support for games, PlayStation Plus, Facebook integration, ABC iView and support for the Move motion controller.
Then, there's one thing that made the news: the ‘Install Other OS’ option is no longer available.

As for us? Laurent and I use PlayStation 3 mostly for PlayTV feature (since we can't afford a real TiVo), VidZone is also a cool feature to check out music video. As for games, we haven't had time for game for months.

(To Don: Antony is very poor.)
