A new report indicates the PS3 is gaining momentum--but that it might taper off once Rainbow Six Vegas 2 hits retail.
Been outsold all 2007 and every month in 2008 by the PS3.
glad to see they're turning it around. Nothing like a little competition to keep both sides on their toes.
based off worldwide sales figures, ps3 will continue to dominate the xbox 360 for pretty much every month this yr. The battle in EU is already won. Despite msoft sales cut, there really aren't any games to take advantage of this except for GTA. Sony too will slice prices due to reduced production costs, to keep the ps3 as the best blu ray player and most importantly to stay in the competition. And with so many high profiled games like socom,GT5, MGS4, LBP, Resistance 2, KZ2, Motorstorm 2, GTA4 coming out, it will further stretch ps3's lead over xbox360 especially in the european market. Things will remain close between playstation and 360 most of the yr but a price drop and some really good games will give ps3 the edge for some months this yr. However i don't think the general US consumers has moved towards playstation yet, some ps2 owners are still unsure of how the ps3 is doing and are waiting for things to smoothen out. All the same sony could come out with sony's gamer day and introduce new footage of some brand new games and revealing gameplay trailer for GOW3 at E3 will definetly get everyone pumped for the playstation brand once again
actually, 360 outsold ps3 in february
and the ps3 only beat 360 in three months the past year, march 07, april 07 when ps3 had its highest spike, and jan o8.
Actually, Worldwide the PS3 outsold the 360 in 2007.
saying that the PS3 would only outsell the 360 in 1 month and thats all. Boy was he wrong!
miserssippi, the simExchnage is notoriously innaccurate, even in it's statistics (not prediticons) it apparently claimed PS3 sold 80k less than it had in a week January, and you just posted evdidence of a prediciton anywayl, which by defintion isn't evidence at all.
Once PLAYSTATION® 3 was available in all major continents, it has proven to be a worldwide phenomenom across the globe. Xbox 360 has been proven to cater to a niche market as Microsoft once again fails to label itself the household consumer electronic name. Combined with superior hardware and Microsoft's own self destruction. Dark Sniper finds it very difficult for Microsoft to outsell the more complete, reliable machine which is PLAYSTATION® 3.
Statistics and factual evidence show that PS3 took the title of highest next-generation hardware units sold(Wii being the exception) in 2007. With the plethora of AAA exclusives being released in 2008, PLAYSTATION® 3 will stomp Xbox 360 to the lowest pits of the earth that not even hell could fathom.
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 a system seller?
It is a very good game.
It's also multiplatform...
It is possible for a multi platform game to sell a console
'A new report from The simExchange expects the PlayStation 3 to outsell the Xbox 360 in March, the first time Sony's next-gen console has outsold Microsoft's since late 2007.' I stopped reading there. In January the Ps3 outsold the 360 in EVERY single continent
LOL... same here. If your writing an article at least do your research, most of the time it appears we know more than these so called "analyst's".
whats rv6 got do with it its out on both systems mgs4 on the other hand ,gt5 ete etc etc etc isn,t ps3 only,hence why three hardened xbox 360 freinds of mind have bought there ps3,s recently games what people keep going on about and playstation has got the biggest this year by far
no longer a done deal if sony don't match the ms price cut before peak pre-easter selling period
3.Most of the "must have" games of 2008
free psn the ability to share almost every downloadable game (highly underrated feature) No hidden costs or 'options' as i heard them named around here
Price has always been a major factor, especially in this generation. With MS's price cut, it not only makes their consoles sell faster, but it also slows down sales from people anticipating a sony price-cut, which seems likely because it will help to grab the gamers adopting a console solely for GTA. Plus, people are still waiting for 80 gb ps3 consoles with backwards compatibility. Blu-ray can't be overlooked, but there aren't any big ps3 exclusives coming in March. While there are some huge games coming, they aren't actually out yet. April, May, and June however, are a different story. A lot of gamers might just end up waiting till then. Considering that the ps3 sales lead hasn't been very wide, the 360 had a good chance to pick up steam.
it's been outselling them since last christmas where has this guy been?
with the price cut and all.
I dont see the ps3 beatibng the 360 in march.
Do analysts ever take in count the changes that they didnt foresee ?
maybe in april once they notice the price cut didn't work
I'm loving all the great ps3 news latley....
I can see why your not a contributor.
March..April..May..June..July. ..August..September..October.. November..December and well into 2009...To infinity and beyond!!!
Either way Sony is seriosuly in the lead position now. Whatever happens Sony will react and win. Playstation is still 400-500$ and NO WHERE NEAR the PS3 DOMINATION we will see in not too long.
IT IS COMING BOTS. You can bet your life on it.
LMAO Zincdouche... the ONLY reasont the 360 wins in software is because its been out twice as long DUHHHH not because the 360 is selling well.... IT ISN'T.... It's already cheap and Microsft is haven't to cut price below the Wii and the PS3 is WAYYY more expensive. Xbox 360 is what you call.... FLOPPING for a console with the most games and the ccheapest. No one wants that P.O.S. PS3 has EVERYTHING better and especailly with all the HUGE PSN updates coming in the next 2-3 months. It will have EVERYHTING XBL does including its own acheivements.
The PS3 will be winning in software when it's hardware base passes the crackbox in a year or so.
the PS3 may never beat the 360 ever again in a month. The only reason the won January is you couldn't find a 360.
Also, the 360 will remain the software King.
Didn't the PS3 outsell the 360 in january..and febuary...and worldwide for an entire year?
but thats not fair to the 360 or MS...for whatever reason...all these analysts only talk about NA...which is a territory that the 360 still has a chance in...the rest of the world?...not so much...360 fanboys keep getting huffy and 'leaving this site because its run by droids'...with all the other negative news surrounding the 360, pointing out that its been in third place for close to a year in worldwide sales...they would all throw another fit and leave entirely...
and what fun would that be?...
N4G has been put on bad-360-news lockdown...No news about RRoD anymore...and no news about the 360 getting outsold worldwide week after week since before anyone even gave the PS3 credit...if news like that keeps popping up...the 360 fanboys will get pissed and leave...and we wouldn't want that to happen...
and not one is intelligent enough to give his opinion as to why he disagreed.They just follow Papa Sony and click disagree even if its true.
You are about as big of a Failure as your X-box...stupid...
lol, RXV2 will NOT sell consoles. The only people who will buy it are mostly the people who played and liked the first game.
Microsoft can drop their prices all they want..thats still not gonna help them sell more 360's
Ahh LOVE owning the BEST console(PS3)on the Planet!!!;)
Ahh i LOVE owning the BEST console(PS3)on the Planet!!!;)
The X360 will outsell PS3 in March & April, but not June when MGS 4 comes out. This fall you have Gears 2 so X360 got it under wraps.
I think the PS3 has the edge into the summer, with the Blu-ray advantage, and given GT5 and the new MGS4 bundle (as well as the game release itself). I do agree, however, that Gears will move a lot of 360's. No doubt of that.
Who exactly will buy Gears of War 2? Oh yeah, the same guys who bought Gears of War 1 and Halo 3 that's who. I don't expect Gears of War 2 to sell that many consoles. It will sell alot of copies but I highly doubt it will move as many consoles.
My question what does this do for gamers? This goes for Wii or 360 news about the same topic. These articles crack me up. Other than feed some peoples egos. Don't know why unless you work for one of the three console companies or have stock in them. News about price cuts, new games, etc is what impacts us as gamers. No matter what system you want.
have said this over and over. So many people get caught up on who sales the most games, hardware, or which is the better machine. Who the flip cares. Ig you arre gamer you should revel in the fact tht we are gettin the best deals, games, experince, etc than ever before. One company lowers a price then the other counters with another move and us, the somsumer benifits completly.
Enjoy, cause it does not get better than this.
SONY need drop HOME Now RIght Now they really sale some games and consoles to
i wonder what they say about april Gta hint hint cough Ps3 will be on high demands Gta is Home of playstation And wait there is more People better think now GTA will kill a few x boxes ( freeze,red lights, and more) Get a a ps3 Gta and stop worrying about ur stupid points and archives i bet ya now home trophies will be added and more After the download contents not a lot of ps3 owners will care Got we have exclusives on the way like HAZE MGS4 KILLZONE and more do u think GTA will be in peoples minds by june Not a chance X box will be well over when MGS4 comes And also home and xmc that we will see
