The Xbox 360 had an early lead in this console war, but now, Microsoft seems to be faltering behind Sony (and not only in Japan, where the 360 doesn't stand a chance against Nintendo and Sony's vice-like grasp on the market.)
Yeah the war between PS3 and 360 really took of after the format war. Now is time to see how those two companies will fight this out. So far Sony has been dominating this year...Microsoft is bout to do well with the recent price.
yes M$ will see a spike in sales due to the price cut...but the PS3 will still outsell the 360 in EU..without dropping it's price... and if Sony Lowers the price of the PS3 right now in NA the PS3 could be doing Wii numbers..
i said it last year. It is now developing in front of your eyes.......Sonys strategy was well divised. They simply went into a war attacking from many different angles trying to reach the sole spot of resistance. That spot everyone wanted seems to be in sonys hands now. Your living room We will experience a PS3 take over this year in the movie and game front.We all know this, its simply as clear as crytal. Honestly though, do you really think blockbuster games and movies is all that the ps3 can deliver? Do you think a mere dvr function and remote play is all SCE have planned? LOL.....ps3 is gonna be the center of many home theaters. For many reasons. Stay tuned, The evil geniuses at sony are not done impressing playstation owners.
Who really cares about this? DVD's are here to stay and downloads are becoming more popular every day. The most important thing are games. In that regard, the PS3 just can't compete.
why do you try to look like the real Meus
I think it's funny trolls do this. If you really dislike Meus, then you should also know that "Imitation is the GREATEST form of flattery."
Why do them mods allow this fake account to exist?
resistance = idiot
Its over BOTS.
Sony is doing to the US video gaming market what Toyota did with the car market. The Japanese take their jobs and their customers very seriously, hence the success they have achieved so far. PS3 is not gonna be any different from the PS2, specially with Blu Ray being the dominant format, they will sell tons and tons of PS3's. On the other hand, Microsoft have been treating their customers like sh1t, with a faulty game console that demands sequential purchases and the most ridiculous case of bad hardware development, and finally a game line up for 2008 that is being put to shame by the Wii. I honestly can see the Japanese executives siting on their boarding rooms and laughing, laughing hard of Nazisoft incompetence. Nazisoft is too stupid to change, they will keep coming with crap (compare to the Japs) at every gaming generation, just like the American cars. Don't get me wrong, they will learn from their mistakes, but will never be a winner.
Blu-ray is icing on the cake...the next 6 months will be extremely interesting.
That's what 1 in..... 46735438763584358 Americans? ^roughly ;)
PS3 outsold x360 in USA too for JAN+FEB There are 42 million PS2 owners in USA. 30% of them would convert to PS3 with GTA4,MGS4,GT5 PROLOGUE this year. all those 42 million PS2 owners would be converting to PS3 in the upcoming years so thats a big amount
sony took a HUGE risk with the PS3 and they got it right. this will have a big impact on future consumers migrating to this gen in the next year - 10 yrs.
more like in the next 2 years..in 10 years Blu Ray would have completely saturated the market
In 10 years download content will be going strooooooong.
this is just starting the 2nd year the PS3 has been out. Developing kits were late and the PS3 is not a familiar structure like the 360 so all we are seeing is 360 games on PS3. But the change is about to begin. By the end of the year certain games (developed specifically for PS3) will begin to show the PS3. But thing is, the way it's made and with blu ray, in 3 years it will become common for one or two levels of a good game to fill a 50 bluray and even then there will be a certain games that use multiple discs.
in 10 years MAYBE. but it won't be replacing hard media. just an option.
Once download content become a reality i think hard media will slow down in terms of sales. is like music, now you can download it from everywhere, there no reason to buy cd's when you can have all your music in one litlle place (ipod).
The music industry's CD sales are not being destroyed by legal downloads with DRM. They were destroyed by illegal, DRM free downloads. Trust me, the overwhelming majority of people with every song they ever wanted and 5000 track personal libraries on the iPod for mp3 players did not pay from the songs. This will not happend with Bluray Movies. Case in point, you can get Bluray rips now. They're just too big to proliferate and there's limited places you can play them back. It's difficult if not impossible to put them back onto any medium without losing resolution or audio fidelity. It's easier and cheaper just to buy the disc. If you download a 320kbs or 256kbs mp3 you can burn it and tranfer it without losing any fidelity. You're comapring apples to oranges.
MSFT needs to figure out how to beat Blu-ray not PS3 as a gaming console as much. PS3 is being purchased as a DVD player more than anything. decapitator's fanboyism is getting sickening, he's getting so bad people are starting to ignor his news posts..
yes, 11 million people bought the PS3 for a dvd player. keep telling yourself that over and over again. you're delusional. look at the software to userbase RATIO. sure looks like people are buying games don't it?
X360 is finished Nothing will revive a DEAD BOX 3 FIX ME PS3 has already surpassed x360 in europe X360 is purchased for being used as a TRASH BOX
Your tears are delicious.
is so sickening that 180+ people already ignore him. He is the most pathetic, sad fanboy of all.
This is like the 8th article today talking about the same thing. Slow day in the industry or the the sony defence group broke loose?
What's more important than determining how we'll get our HD?
I LOVE GOOD NEWS!!! ;-D
How the mighty have fallen. Last year there was so much confidence in your posts when you talk trash about the PS3. However now not only are you posting less on PS3 articles but when you do you just sound desperate. Anyway things have shifted so fast am sure some Microsoft execs have nose bleeds. Sony are clearfully executing their strategy it's puzzling how much Sony seemed to have taken Microsoft by surprise. It's almost as if Microsoft didn't expect this console gen was gonna end December 2007. With the way things seem to be going in Microsofts Xbox devision i wouldn't be surprised if they announced a new Xbox this E3.
The confidence never went anywhere. We all know there will be some months that go to Phony, but don't think for a second that next month and many months beyond that this trend will continue because it won't. So don't come crying next month when your movie machine is outsold.
Ah, Power of Green............such a CLOWN! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
But Ps3 still did better in the first year. 18 million install base vs 11 million install base.... I wonder how many of those 18 million are repeat customers due to broken xboxes. sorry reliability problems from the xbox are going to cause long term problems for the conosle.
