Why does people complain about the price of the PS3 anyways?

Because it's too much. Even $500 for the 360 was pushing it. If Sony were really selling it for $200 less than it cost to make, they wouldn't be making any money (not like they are, anyways).

People buy computers for more, and you can use Linux on the PS3 too, which will aid in developing indie games for the PS3 overall. And I agree with IGN's comment on the PS3 indie gaming development. "Maybe the next-gen wars won't be decided by the big game company names, but maybe for it's indie games."

Microsoft already has a jump on that, too, with Xbox Live Arcade.  :P And they released XNA a month or two ago, for regular people (not even game developers, just console owners) to develop their own games to sell on the marketplace.

But yeah, the indie games won't have much pull anyways, so it's a moot point.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

3. TOO SHORT WARANTY. The PS3 has longer waranty, for example

This only affects the US and Canada, but...

Microsoft announced today that the 360's 90 day warranty in the US and Canada has been officially expanded to an entire year. Even better, Microsoft has stated that the new warranty is retroactive, and all customers who were forced to pay for repairs out-of-warranty will be reimbursed. Reimbursements are to be automatically distributed and no action is required on the end of the customer. Reimbursement checks should be distributed within 10 weeks.

This is why i absolutely love Microsoft's Xbox division... They make sure that whenever they change something, it doesn't screw over their early adopters. You'd never see Sony do something like that.

Remember when they suddenly dropped the price of the original Xbox, everybody who already had one got free stuff which was actually worth more than the price drop. Absolutely awesome.

Microsoft uses its position in the market to be profitable enough selling the consoles/games that it can afford to love its customers. Sony is so inept and counting on some mystical elf to give them a pot of gold for popularizing blu-ray that they can hardly afford to sell their consoles.

It's simply too soon to tell. There are plenty of idiots out there that could buy a PS3.
