End Of An Era

All good things must come to an end, even one of the best gaming generations to date. The seventh generation of consoles began when Microsoft released their Xbox 360 on November 22, 2005, the console sold out immediately.

The PS3 still has at least another five years of retail sales before it stops being sold. The PS2 had major AAA titles getting put out for it ten years into its retail sales life - years after both Nintendo and Microsoft had dropped support for their consoles.

The PS3 is around 80 million worldwide right now and it still hasn't dropped in price to 200 dollars. The PS2 sold some 80 million consoles after it hit the 200 dollar mark.

By the end of its shelf life the PS3 will easily end up in the 110-120 million installed base range and end up being the top selling console this gen.
