it's it me or is the ps3 outselling the 360 by quite a big margin?Maybe now dev might actually start using the ps3 as it's lead platform when they make multiplatform games.The 360 has no big features left and you still have to shout out 50 dollars to play online.Not to mention that you can't watch any of the new hi-def dvd that will be releasing.They still haven't fixed the RROD problem that has been seen at numerous game events.They showed all their card way too early.I've owned a 360 and after having two of them just die on me, i bought a ps3.I've had my ps3 for about 2yrs already.Serves Microsoft right for making a faulty system.

cmrbe3453d ago

I always believe devs are smart people. I never believe that devs would focus on one console based on game sales or HW sales figures this early in the console war. If i was a dev i would look at the long term viability of a console. Sony always do their best to prolong the lifespan of their console by locking certain features until a certain time and packing its console with enough tech to last. This was what Kaz was implying when he said the hard PS3 game developemnt is actually something good. If a dev managed to maxout a console within 3 years. The lifespan of that console will be shortened.

ruibing3453d ago

I think round two (2008) of the console war will be the most interesting. Right now the PS3 still isn't even fighting with its best titles yet, which are all due out between the summer and the holidays.

sonarus3453d ago

Is it just me or is 50,000 not big enough:D

vasilisk3453d ago

Actually it's 60K not 50 and if you sum it up it's around 3 million consoles a year. So it's kind of alot

Jinxstar3453d ago

@ vasalisk

60 x 12 =720... thats 720,000 consoles not 3 mil...

mark093453d ago

yeah but its a 60k marin when the 360 is selling only 134k.. which means at this rate when the holidays hit if the 360 sold 2million in a month that means the ps3 will sell about 2.9 mill which would be the same ratio as right now

Topshelfcheese3453d ago

@Jinxtar

since when is the year only 12 weeks long, try doing your math to 52 weeks, which is 3.12 million if it stayed at 60k a week.

PSh1t33453d ago (Edited 3453d ago )

ps3 will never catch-up, and when GTA4 hits, it will sell more on 360 and more consoles. owned.

mark093453d ago

for the sake of your health im hoping your being sarcastic

yanikins1113453d ago

One post above this is a total and epic fail. You pick which one.

Iamback3453d ago

@Jinxstar

OMG and you have that many bubbles?! After failing like complete baboon, a couple of them should be taken away....i am serious. After trying to convince us that there are only 12 weeks in a year.....is there anything else to say or add, other than EPIC FAIL.

Cupid_Viper_33453d ago

if anyone look at my past posts, you'll see that i've been begging the people on here to do some basic math........

and when they finally decide a mathematical approach, they end up with
60000 x 12 weeks.....ahahahahahahahhh hah ahahha hahaha sh!t that's it, hahahahahaha haha haha ahah awww man, im tearing right now...hahaha haha wheoowwwww, you guys should seriously consider comedy, just make sure you hire an accountant, otherwise ya'll end up on the streets. And i dont even know how much a broken 360 is going for these days. lmao....sry, i just had to get that one out.

Jinxstar, you seriously pwned yourself man. Wow

wallace10003453d ago (Edited 3453d ago )

I agree that the PS3 sales are doing well. But i don't believe we can apply the same math to the PS3 as we have seen with the 360. Just because the 360 sold 2 million last christmas (someone said that above me) doesn't mean we can take a sales ratio from one month and apply that to holiday sales of the 360 to predict holiday sales for the PS3. That just doesn't make sense because there are many other factors that have to be taken into consideration. There are other factors like success of games, and for the PS3 especially blu-ray adoption to take into consideration. What do you guys think?
If i use monthly sales figures to predict stuff, i could do this:
360 total sales: 18.13 million
PS3 total sales: 11.60 million
PS3 outsold 360 by 51,975 this month
360/PS3 total sales difference: 6,530,000
(6,530,000 / 51,975) / 12 = 10.47
That means based on this month at these sales rates it will take the PS3 10.47 years to over take xbox 360 in total sales.
Does that make any sense to anyone? I hope everyone says that that makes no sense, i just wanted to provide an example of applying monthly sales figures to predict an outcome. It doesn't work :-) Someone used the sales numbers to yield a positive prediction for the PS3, i just wanted to show how the numbers could be used to yield a negative prediction. Those numbers can be sneaky and used it many different ways, don't trust them :-P

rawg3452d ago

Came late to this article but I feel compelled to correct your math. It's weekly sales not monthly and the calculation should be:

(6,530,000 / 51,975) = 126 weeks / 4 = 31 months

That's assuming that the gap stays at ~50K units/month. Undoubtably, the PS3 sales will increase with GT5P (in the US), GTA4, MGS4 and the inevitable price drop. By holiday season '08, the consoles will probably be neck-and-neck.

wallace10003452d ago (Edited 3452d ago )

Thanks for pointing that out, i thought they were monthly i missed the weekly part. Use rawgs math for the example then :-)

360 funeral epic better consider put gears 2 on ps3 for insurance. because november it could be over.

DEADEND3453d ago

Oh man here it is the 360 is dying out fast now, it's being out sold in every region by the PS3. There's only one game that can save the 360 now and that's GEARS but it might be a little too late by then.

Real gamer 4 life3453d ago

I am more impressive with grant turismo prologue made it in the top 10 worldwide charts and it hasnt even been released in the NA yet. from here on it gets a little more diffucult for microsoft system. Because prolouge already did damage and next up its metal gear solid i wont count Grant thef auto because its a multiplatfrom game. But in reality both machine are selling real well.

CaliGamer3453d ago

I don't think the 360 GTA4 DLC will make any PS3 owner clamor to the store to buy a 360. I also don't think that any marginally informed consumer would purchase a 360 just because of this DLC knowing that the PS3 comes packed with a lot more features out the box and there is the unmentionable issue of RELIABILITY.
Not to mention the PS3 GTA4 bundle looks a lot more snazzy. LOL.

CaliGamer3453d ago

This is world wide number so I doubt your going to like what you see. Well call you when US numbers are released, and even those are also quickly becoming a disappointment.

Sometimes I really feel bad, but then I think about some of the people that represent the 360 on this site then I don't feel bad at all. I hope this trend continues.
