I think that this will translate in to more PS3 users down the road....

what I'm really interested in is if anybody was predicting any different? who expected the ps3 to be at least on par with ps2 year sales...
there are a few things not really up to scratch in article, but the facts are at least in there..

FAT MAN GO BOOM2992d ago

I don't know I mean the PS2 came a great time... I mean there was really less competition I mean the dreamcast pulled out early which suck and the Xbox and game cube came later... and DVD was exploding and the starting price was a lot lower than what it is now for the PS3...

I think it will reach a large amount of people but the large sales of the system will be when the price drops...

PS2 is the king of consoles since it sold the most ever in video gaming history.

This only proves the power of the Playstation brand but fanboys probably wanted to spin this around again.

PS2 selling 4 times as many as PS3? Guess what, its also almost 4 times CHEAPER than the PS3 aswell!

Imagine if the PS3 was that cheap. Hell imagine PS3 being 250 bucks. It will sell like fking hotcakes!

I also can not believe how big a footprint the PS2 has... 154 million... world wide...

It's all good because it's all SONY!;)

Kyur4ThePain2992d ago

That's true and I agree.
But watch as people try and flip this as a bad thing.

Sony's making mad cash with the playstation brand in 08. I bet they make even more in 09 though.

good chris rock allusion ;)

Oh yeah, Sony is cooking with fire now.
I can't even imagine what would happen if the PS3 reaches that point.
Oh, let the good times roll.

juuken2992d ago

I notice some people disagreed with me.
Why am I not surprised.

Maximus2992d ago

I wonder if this happened to the PS2 when it recently launched.
The PS One reacing it's 8th birthday and outselling the younger PS2. Does anyone remember?
