Is 2008 the Year of the PlayStation 3?

MSNBC writes:

"While the beleaguered PlayStation 3 still faces an uphill battle, Sony believes the console is spring-loaded for a turnaround.

Why? The success of Blu-ray, an upcoming slate of much-needed exclusive games and new numbers from the NPD Group showing that the console bested Microsoft's Xbox 360 for the first time in January."

outsold the 360 in america
Blu Ray won the HD format war
and got a good mutliplat game from EA (burnout)

Id say its shaping up to be one heck of a year for the PS3

The 360 outnumbers the PS3 3 to 1 in the US.
The HD war is not yet over.
The PS3 got a good multiplatform title from developer and middleware company Criterion.

THE HD WAR IS OVER.
You have to be blind to think it isnt, or just a fanboy.
The 360 last month got outsold by the ps3 worldwide by about 250,000 units.
The ps3 has way better games coming out.
They have the next movie format BUILT IN

This year and next year and the year after that are the years of the ps3.

The HD War is not over and there is one AGREE...

Hooray for crazy fanboy(singular)!

As long as it stays close in the US, PS3 is doing good. They are outselling the 360 basically everywhere else. But even in the US I believe 360 will saturate their market, giving the PS3 a chance.

This story tells us what PS3 will not success its hype in 2008 mainly because people think PS3 is a cheap BR player and will not buy software. Plus GFX capabilities of PS3 is lower so it will always loose is GFX to XBOX 360 exclusives coming in 2008.

I think I answered this question like 2 weeks ago, well look at here, it's only FEB 2008, not much have changed.

InMyOpinion3362d ago

The answer to all these BS articles is easy, "We'll have to wait and see.". Won't we?

Same goes for that Halo killer article about Resistance 2, Killzone 2 and RB 6: Vegas 2. Wait and see.
