The ps3 is following the ps2. If you compare the ps2 launch date with ps3, both of them were are on the same road map. This is just to show you sony is doing something right.
And people wouldn`t believe me, I lost alot of bubbles for it aswell. Beleive it or NOT, it`s TRUE. Personally I think PS3 will outsell the PS2 when it`s all said and done. Because it`s that much more impressive.
My first PS2 was the best way into DVD, and back in those days, everyone was raving about how cool DVD is (compared to VHS). Not many people are raving about the hi-def stuff so the main selling point has to be games this time around. I know lots of people who are happy with their PS2's and the thing is still selling well..
actually...no....things ought to be doing better...this is basically saying that the ps3 has some hope left...ps2>miles better after poor start(GT/MGS/ff/gta took if off>>PS1 and Ps1>miles better after poor start, tekken 2 kicked it all off>>n64. price cut is what turned it around for ps3 thus far...of course like everyone is saying...big guns are still really to come out...sony has tons of things in its locker yet...
Yeah and now in 2008 it looks like the ps3 will get that simlliar sales boost that the ps2 got. 360 of course is lagging behind because it failed in japan and is not doing as well in europe or australia.
Thats some good info I have to say because I remember that.
Or is it only correct when it shows something favorable to Sony?
so stop talk about ps2 for now and enjoy ps2 with this oustanding game
bubble Turtle for beating me to it, because you'll probably lose some
@Cyber Sentinel Even Steve Urkel knows that VGChartz is garbage. And I am still stuck back in the 90's. My time machine was broken when I went back to get some cheese. Did I do that?
man this site! look at your disagrees building up aswell lol! in ten years the ps3 mite get somewhere near the ps2, but in all honesty i cant see sony selling more than 60mil units! it will beat the 360 without doubt, and may catch the wii, but sony will never again dominate like they used too! and in the next-gen of consoles....well, imo sony will see even more of what was once their exclusive market taken from them. now watch my disagrees build up! and how can vgchatrz(of all sites mind-you) say that when the ps3 is getting stomped by the wii back home??? last gen, the ps2 ruled in every territory, now it's only in the EU where it's doing particularly well. in NA it's pretty much doing the same as the 360, and in japan, well, sony must be hating nintendo! and they're lucky the 360 was still born over there.
But I agree with people who say VGchartz is off typically with their predicted units moved, and their reported units moved for a given (current/past few) month(s) when compared to the NPD numbers; however, arn't these particular charts based off the final reported NPD numbers as well as similar reporting systems for other countries? As VGchartz didn't have their "sources" back when many of the older consoles came out. Thus to be accurate they would have to use similar reporting data. I would hope that the long term charts are based off more long term and reliable sources such as the NPD to keep the chats consistant.
This looks good too http://vgchartz.com/hwlaunc...
Yeah the wii is selling a ton. But seriously who cares lol. I personally dont even classify the wii in the same catagory as the 360 let alone the ps3...
Ok the ps3 is setting the same pace as the ps2, but so is the xbox 360 and the wii is out pacing it so does that mean were going to have over 400 million consoles sold this Gen?....................
We are going to have alot thats for sure, far more than previous gen. People say that the wii has stolen the Ps2 crowd, however i disagree, the vast majority of Wii owners i suspect never brought a console before. Either way i suspect both the Wii and Ps3 will top 100million this gen, with the 360 not far behind the Ps3
PS2 sold to a smaller addressable market, add in the casual market, bluray buyers and new geographies (eastern europe, india, south america, china?) and it could be possible.
But i have to disagree, a large quantity of people who owned a ps2 at some point either owned another console or more than one console, so if you combine the total sales of all the 3 consoles of the last generation it would come to about 150 million (not taking into account any duplicate sales, people buying one selling it on and later buying another), i just cant for the life in me see these numbers doubling, maybe and extra 15-30 million tops but not crazy amounts more
Uhhh what? Your point isss??? First off most ps2 owners only owned a ps2 second if you owned a ps2 and gamecube welll..... you still fricken owned a ps2. your point sucks.
the PS2 was out in japan for years before it came out in europe; the PS3 is NOT charting as high considering its out in all 3 regions.
Correct me if im wrong, but didn't the Ps2 come out in 1999 in Japan, and 2000 in Europe, and then this gen the Ps3 came out in Japan in 2006 and Europe got it in 2007
Years? You sure about that? Because it came out in Japan in March of '00, the US in Oct '00 and November '00 in EU.
What strikes me is the lack of increased sales for the 360..shouldn't the 360 start showing improved sales now its been out for 2/3years instead it looks like its tailing off. doesn't look good for 360
Wait for the price cut. Remember, MS hasn't cut the price in quite awhile...apparently they're not too worried.
HOW BLASPHEMOUS!!! ;-D SHUT down N4G!!! ;-D It's ALL Micro$ofts FAULT!!! ;-D (That was a joke to all you Sense-of-Humour-Less xBot Lemmings on this!!!) ;-D
what I expected to happen. It is no surprise to me at all that the PS3 is gaining speed. It is also no surprise that Sony's console is now Outselling Msoft's from month to month. The 360 has lots to offer and is a great system (I have all 3 in my house, PS3, Wii, 360), but it just doesn't have what the PS3 does in the long run. What system do I use to browse the internet? PS3. What system do I watch highdef movies on? PS3. What system do I play COD4, Motorstorm, Resistance, UT3, Burnout Paradise, warhawk, etc... on for free? PS3. What console allows me to put in a 300 gig HDD, of almost any brand, for under $100? PS3. Despite the myriad great titles for 360 and the fantastic online service, Msoft's console doesn't allow the freedom and flexibility the PS3 does. It is only a matter of time before the PS3 demonstrates itself as the system of choice for the serious gamer, movie and entertainment media buff.
While I honestly don't know if the PS3 will pass or match the PS2, especially since the PS2 is still selling well, I do believe it will at least sell 100 million consoles over its lifetime. I find it funny that some people believe the PS3 won't even do 60 million. Newsflash, it sells about 11 million a year. 11 mil x 6 = 66 + the 12 million already out there. Thats 78 million at least 6 years from now. I do believe that sales will pick up. A price drop + more great games = better sales.
Sony wanted to repeat the ps2 success. So they basically did repeat Ps2's launch with a couple small factors. After 2 years ps2 was out FFX, MGS2, GTA3, DMC, GT3. Look wahts coming out after 2 years of ps3: FFXIII, MGS4, GTA4, DMC4, GT5P(plus more games) PS3's line will trace ps2's line till the end.
its no fair that the PS3 has no ring of death
