2008 is The Year of the PS3 and B3YOND
360 was dead since the PS3 launched. It had the biggest games last year and still got outsold by the PS3, which was more expensive and has all kinds of problems. Any wonder I use my 360 as a Sega emulator?
Yesterday 360 outsells ps3 in NPD's, today this spam shows up. With a Apr 14 date on this story, something tells me that some sony fanboy contributer was saving this one for a rainy day (just like today).
PS3 8,232 Xbox 360 1,147 Japan sales last week. 5,000 a month means nothing against 7,000 a week plus huge margins in Europe.
The PS3 is outselling the 360 world wide. After the 360 price cut in EU, it's still getting outsold by the PS3. I point and laugh at MS.
how true, just like the xbox burns down a house. they was definately saving this one for a rainy day lol. this site is getting worse and worse! and the people that own and run this site don't even bother hiding their fanboyism anymore!
pirate thom, i'd put those figures away if i was you. the 360 is dead in japan, and ps3 in it's homeland does'nt even muster as much as 10k a week. man its unbelievable how far sony have fallen!
some idiot on another thread was just trying to say that the ps3 outsells the 360 by 400 or 500k units a month aswell....sony fanboys do have a desperate smell around them nowadays. just because the ps3 manages to sell more boxs world-wide monthly, it's nowhere near enough to make up the 8 mil they're behind...not this year anyway!
sony must be glad that europe is keeping the ship afloat! perhaps they mite start looking after us europeans now, and not delay everything over here.
and america is 360's homeland.....which the ps3 has been outselling for the past two months, and only recently was beaten, but by a mere 5k in one month.
ill mention this and you 360 fanboys will ignore it as usual but ill say it anyway...if you take away the 360s year head start and line them up sales wise side by side...youll see that the ps3 is spanking the crap outta 360 period. now factor in the one year head start and youll have 360 back up there with is lets say 8mill lead....now we take those same numbers at the end of this year (08 since i have to spell it out for you) line up those numbers again and if the ps3 has dropped that lead at all BOOM ps3 outsold 360...however for the other side fo the fence people if you see that 360 has increased its lead...then 360 outsold ....see simple logic something that you lack genuine
and they have'nt continued it though! it's not the mere 5K, it's the long term, and sony are down in NA by 5+mil units. even beating microsoft by a matter of 10's of thousands a month is not enough!
and sonys homeland is japan, and it's nowhere near what the ps2 was... and the wii is giving it a serious hiding at home. europe is gonna be sonys saviour for now!
jke: for now atleast, it looks like microsofts strategy of getting on the market first has sort of payed off! now you have to wonder what will happen when microsoft get another headstart when they release new hardware around xmas 2010, and i would think nintendo will get one out then aswell? coming off the back of a reasonably successful 360 and wii....they will steal even more marketshare from sony, if they stick to their console for 10 years.
xbox360 has more than 60 games comin out this year comapred to ps3 30+
You Bought an Xbox
where the hell did those figures come from? dont even bother saying, we all know its your ass
lol at the ha ha dude, that neva gets old
haha..its getting pathetic. Ive seen 10 in the last 3 weeks.
It's a cycle, after your here for awhile you can predict the news on this site. A professional media site will release a positive story about console A, the next day a N4G contributer will have a negative story on console A, taken straight from their homemade website. It's just the nature of a social news site.
it's PS3 year...the 360 is well known for burning down houses, loud fans and crappy customer service. You PUTO bots can take pride in that
it's april for goodness sakes.. i only own a ps3 (and wii) but i must admit i get sick to death of journos writing the same out of date stuff over and over again. stop this flamewar stuff - it is pointless. every console you own is going to make you happy. the only people who aren't happy about their consoles are the ones who come here to slag off the competition.
sales from launch is the best way to compare the success of a console. and from their respective launch dates, the PS3 is matching the sales of the PS2. however, over the past couple months, the 360 is has begun to tail off.
projecting out the following "sales from launch chart" only points to greater success for PS3:
VGChartz= automatic fail (regardless of anyones console preference)
vgcharts just pulls numbers out their ass.
at least xbox360 game developers ain't disappointed in there games, cough! cough! mgs4
you are the perfect X-bot, green with envy. at least MGS4 looks better than MGS3...unlike Halo3...or rather Halo 2.1
PUTO bots like you make these arguement too easy LOL!!!
This game is gonna blow the hell out of any title to date. Kojima farts more creative talent than most ppl muster in 10 years.
He's dissapointed because he only had 50gb of space to work with. There are low rez textures on the bluray disc which means worse graphics than what is possible on the PS3. Could you imagine if he tried to make it for 360? He'd be more than dissapointed, he'd be suicidal.
ah jeez i mean yeah, 2008 looks like its going to belong to Sony both in terms of sales and games, but come on- dont you just hate when we get 200 articles about the same thing EDIT: man the mods are really going to town on this article, dont blame them
I swear theres like a billion articles with the exact name as this...
exactly, its getting annoying @Mr Buns yeah man, well described
not chalkboard annoying, but more like the constant squeak that you here in your car and then as soon as you turn your head to hear where it's coming from, it goes away, until you start to forget about it and try to right it off as something that must have fixed itself...but it doesn't fix itself. The squeak just waits for you to start ignoring it then...s..q..u...e...a...k, until you turn to look again to hear nothing...Why must you mock me squeak! I guess what I am trying to say is that this is annoying...even as a PS3 owner!
xBOX 360 IS GARABGE and selling like crap(for IT'S price and IT's lifetime) Yea we know you BOTS want to compare everything to the PS3... but PS3 IS only one year old and PS3 IS selling well for a 400-5004 console
Sony KNOWS Xbox 360 isn't a mainstream hit. Just like XboX Live ONLY has 7 million Gold members on a 5 year old service HAHAHAHAHHA.
Song JUST ANNOUNCED PSN has 3.7 million users on PSN JUST IN THE U.S. HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA
Xbox 360 is garbage. PS3 is winning in worldwide sales... is goign to win America more months this year ALREADY and once the PS3 is 300$ it will be OVER... It's still a damn expensive conosle. 360 IS GARBAGE, it's burns down house's... Xbox 360 isn't and won't ever be mainstream... Xbox Live isn't and won't ever be mainstream and Sony isn't even trying yet. They are saying " Go ahead Microsft...we are still beating u in sales and not even breaking a sweat... WE HAVEN'T EVEN PLAYED ONE CARD YET" HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA
PS3 is going to kil the Xbox 360 again this generation. 5K in sales just in America aren't going to help that. And PS3 has sitll sold almost 100k more than the 250$ FLOPbox in the U.S. so far this year. It's going to get worse. PS3 is going to smash the 3fixme when games drop(GTA 4, MGS4) and its gets a price drop a little later this year. But as for now... It's still winning and even the Japanese are waiting to buy it.
There are only 2 million PS3's sold in Japan so far... it will go on to sale 15-20 million, it's the same for America and Europe. Xbbox 360 will be lucky to sale 45 million consoles even if they kept Xbox 360 out to compete with PS3 for 5 or 6 more years.
Every month that passes by.... things favor the PS3 more. PS3 is just built to last ALOT longer. As it gets cheaper... people REALLY aren't goign to want a RROD over the PS3 and all its baddas exclusives it has to play.
I own all 3 systems and I have to say that the ps3 line up is a HUGE disappointment this year. The only game I'll be getting for my ps3 is MGS4. Last year line up was waaay better they didnt have anything on par with bioshock but R&C, HS and uncharted were all good games.
I think 09 will be sony's year tho they have GT5, FF13, GoW3 (unless its delayed) and hopefully Twisted Metal
LOL theres always one i guess
Yes its ps3's year. The year it will be layed to rest.."2006-2008"
I was lol'ing at Nelson's comment until I read yours. Teh unfunneh
You win the sarcasm award for today. And if you aren't being sarcastic then I feel very very sorry for you and your life. :(
Flame on lock and load.
I love my ps3 as much as the next person but seriously this is getting annoying. http://www.n4g.com/industry... http://www.n4g.com/News-124... http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... http://www.n4g.com/industry... http://www.n4g.com/News-109... http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
Sony is going the cheap route with their 2008 marketing.
but Dayammmm All these articles are the same, they attempt to ask some questions about the Ps3's launch and how it is dong now and what games are coming out, and in the end it turns out to be just another PS3 biased article from a blogger or some kids that swears he knows more than Patcher...lol Then comes the praises and resentments from fans from the 1st year of 360 domination, as it would seem, plus games list(with multi-platform and unproven games)..and the downfall of the other console and you finish the rest. I think these articles are used for hits. The "TMZ's" of the online gaming community articles.
wow how many articles like this are we going to see this year =P? seriously its like twice a week for this type of article and they all start and end the same way.
360r's commenting on PS3 boards. Stop coming here to steal more ideas. We would rather a stronger Yen to the limp USD. or how about that tasty CDN money?

that ign poll was really something...and to the lamer who said 360 has 60+ games coming out THIS year is stupid, can we say 2 or 3? GeOW2 and Fable2, thats about it
GTA4 articles..all we see, its all getting old
This is definitely a better year for PS3 but not the year of PS3! 360 still has alot of fight left in it and after a price cut MS should start to pull way ahead of Sony in monthly hardware figures here in the US! Software sales alone are really keeping MS and developers alive and sending Sony a message I'm sure they are trying to address but can't seem to quite figure out! You just can't claim a year and say it's yours until the end of the year where we can look at hardware and software sales all together! MS is doing a spectacular job this generation and now that the rrod crap is being ironed out there is nothing holding them back from eventually becoming number 1 again! Once again Sony is having a much better year and have some pretty solid games on the way but still this is not there time sorry!
Just one thought I have right now. If even after delivering a quality exclusive almost more than every month doesn't help Sony come back on top and reduce 360 lead and declare itself as a winner by a clear margin then I don't see Sony going winning this console war. They have THE lineup compared to 360 6 titles (Gears2, Alan Awake, Banjo, Fable2, NG2, Too Human). So after all the software they are going to have they mess, then God help them.
I'll bet you Gears2, Alan Awake, Banjo, Fable2, NG2 and Too Human get higher reviews then the ps3 linup. So far GT5 has 82 metacritic. If 360's linup wins (better metacritic) then sony Fans on this site have to admit 360 the better platform and vise versa. Deal?
no thats just you being close-minded and moronic as usual there are other factors to consider one of them is that professional reviews arent solidified fact
"one of them is that professional reviews arent solidified fact" And reviews from fanboys are?
No more than the fanboys who write professional reviews. For example, Mass Effect has a 91 rating on metacritic. I thought this game was better than both BioShock (96) and Halo 3 (94), but my review won't count for anything. Assassin's Creed has an 81 on Metacritic, but I really enjoyed it and would rate it much higher. Uncharted has an 89, again, I'd rate it much higher. I don't think reviews should ever be taken over the opinion of, well, yourself. I honestly pity the 360 fanboys who didn't get to play Uncharted and I pity the PS3 fanboys who didn't get to play Mass Effect.
That report yesterday was just in America.
Worldwide, the PS3 is still tearin' it up!
When MGS4 releases...it'll be smooth sailing for Sony.
Then again, PR stunts have changed things in the past...and what company is more known for maniacal PR stunts than Microsoft?
Been saying that since 07, and been saying that in the past 4 months of 08.
I just printed it off and took a dump. Great for wiping my butt off.
"I really like the PS3. But most of the games I love are still on my 360, and after I’ve watched a few movies, listened to some music, I usually switch off the PS3 and start my 360. It’s a little bit like the PSP was in that sense - “it really really does play games! Honest! I just can’t name too many!”
Even an article that was an attempt to diss the 360 still shows how it shines and beats the POS3 in gaming.
We are coming up on 1/2 way thru the "Year of the PS3" so if this it then just let me say. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA what a joke!
Fuk, I'm tired of seeing these. WE GET IT! YOUR ALMIGHTY SAVIOUR SONY IS GOING TO RULE 2008! Enough. I've seen like six of these articles already. STFU!
xbox 2005 is on it's last leg.
RIP 360 2006-2008
If 2008 is year of the PS3 then Sony had better hurry the faark up and show me something good, because so far nothing at all has made me want to buy a ps3. And that includes UC and R&C. Except as a bluray player maybe.
Well we're in the middle of April and I still don't see anything different. The GT demo has already shown to be a few laps behind Forza 2 in the physics department. Games are still getting delayed. MGS online is a mess. The PSN network doesn't know what its doing. Well atleast you still have the bluray player and all these articles that keep saying "THE YEAR OF THE PS3!" to keep you happy.
Dude, I've playing GT5 for the past few days, and it has the most realistic driving simulation by far. Spare me the marketing BS that was pushed behind Forza. The physics in GT5 make GT4 look weak, and that is a tough thing to say. Forza 2 has some damage; I'll give it that. But if you want to buy a game for damage, get Burnout. Even Forza 2 doesn't do damage in a physically accurate manner, so don't even bother complaining about Prologue's current lack of it (especially since it's coming in a Fall update). MGS Online? It's a free Beta that Konami has full control over. Full games are under Sony's control, but this is an early test. They should have made it easier, but they pulled a Square Enix on us. BTW, what games got delayed? Hmm???
I agree with you on that one. I was really looking forward to GT prologue but within a week i was back on Forza.
Im hoping MGS is going to be great as most of the other games im looking forward to are on the 360.
i don't regret buying my ps3 and i think its a great machine but i think its still behind in the gaming stakes.
Outside of Gears and Halo (which is by far the most over rated game in history) What is soo good about 360? You pay for online why? With 360s online service if one game clogs the system, the whole system goes down even for the people NOT playing THAT game... You have a riduclously High failure rate.. Why do you keep going back? Yes you have the biggest library OK? Suzuki has a huge selection of cars.. ISNT it still a Suzuki? Besides how many 360 owners honestly play games outside of Gears mass COD4 and halo? None I know thats for sure... Why get a 360? When to ADD the features that PS3 already comes with, comes out to more money? And you dont even get the Winning HD format... Hmmm.. SO there online has more OPTIONS.. haha gamerscore and achievments is a Fat Kids bragging rights.. You care about achievments and gamerscore your prolly single and love the games with the girls with big tits.. Also all the IMPORTANT features of XBL will becoming to PSN OH YA FOR FREE... I can vid chat with 6 buddies from around the world via psn and pseye, can XBL oh ya no.. SO AGAIN.. WHY A 360?? Seriously Edit: HAHA random 360 fans disagree with no argument.. Pathetic..
... In this thread is disgusting... Firstknight is the biggest 360 fanboy I have ever seen in my life and a lot of the N4G community seem like PS3 fanboys...
Nomatter my opinion im bound to get bashed... I loved my 360 last year... roughly 40 games and a lot of play time... Recently I love my Ps3 and I think 08 does look more promising...
Pirate you deserve bubbles... I didnt like Mass Effect but can respect its great for the audience its aimed at... I got to play Resistance, Uncharted, Warhawk, Motorstorm and GOW2 (ps2 game but great) on my ps3... Also I got to play Bioshock, Halo3, Orange Box, Crackdown and a host of other games I thought ran smoother on 360
either way all them games were truped by SMG my fave game of 07
are funny. get over it , no game blows any console away.
