So true.

Good for Sony. They deserve all the success they get :)

We know what gaming system is best, and it isn't anything with Microsoft written on it ;)

Most people I know have one over an Xbox 360
GribbleGrunger  +   553d ago
To be fair, most American's could say the same about the 360. Bit it wasn't really necessary to say that, was it?
SonyNGP  +   553d ago
Nope. It was completely necessary. Fanboyish gloating is fun!

It may not have Microsoft written on it, however my gaming PC uses Windows :P It's better than console systems however I own both the PS3 and 360. After building a PC a few months ago I haven't looked back. I will buy next gen systems however I do enjoy PC gaming. I was a huge PC gamer back when PS2 came out, I didn't even own a PS2. I bought the current gen systems and I was happy because my old PC was a piece, however after checking out prices on components I made a pretty good system for around $700 which included the OS.

Im the other way around. I switched from PC gaming to PS3/360 and havent looked back. I can pretty much play all the quality games that are on PC already on PS3/360, plus more.

The PC platform is definitely not what it use to be back in 2000. Now it's known as the platform with hardly any games, with good reason, they are all available on PS3/360, making it pretty much irrelevent, unless I want to fire up Diablo 3 from time to time.

On the other hand, PC games are roughly $10 cheaper, plus Steam deals. Steam screwed up Sleeping Dogs during the holiday sale and I got it for around $6. Not to mention frequent 50-75% off sales. A new game goes on sale every day and they have mid-week and weekend sales and now week long sales. My game savings alone have paid for my computer.

"On the other hand, PC games are roughly $10 cheaper."

That price is irrelevant if your game choices are far more limited in terms or worthwhile games to play. We all know PC has the "most" games but those include flash games, facebook games, etc..

Sony wouldve been successful in all these areas including US if they wouldve been more competitive with their prices & didnt wait so long to launch the ps3 but i guess there is a bright side to it is u learn from your mistakes and comeback even stronger with your next console.

This is great news, Sony has both New Zealand and Australia in the bag, Now All they need to do is take over the U.S, perhaps next gen?
Darth Stewie  +   553d ago
Doubt it the only company that could beat Microsoft in the US would be Apple but hopefully Apple don't make another game console.

Australia and New Zealand do not make up any great segment of the market share. And to jump from dominating New Zealand to dominating America is quite a leap. I don't think Microsoft or Sony will even bat an eyelid at this. No offence there... mate
hard joe  +   553d ago
in the world but US?
wenaldy  +   553d ago
'MuriKKKa!!!
stage88  +   553d ago
Well done NZ now let's hope Sony can put their master plan in action and take over the US.
josephayal  +   553d ago
I've never heard of that Country, but another Supreme Victory for SONY
Karpetburnz  +   553d ago
You never heard of New Zealand?????? Are you American by any chance? LOL just joking.
BushLitter  +   553d ago
Its that country where sheep outnumber humans 4 to 1 right?
BoNeSaW23  +   553d ago
Are you a foreigner trying to get your LULZ by calling people Americans on the internet? HILARIOUS! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Seriously dude, show some conviction when trying to bash America/Americans.

Glad Sony is doing well in Aus territory.

The entire map is PlayStation Blue except, NA & The UK.

The "Z" has been conquered... who's next?
