360 cheaper than piles of sh1ts and still people dotn want it if 360 cost less that cow manure and people buy that more than 360 that shows cow sh1t has far better value for your money and far more use
1. For price cut 2. Back from Holliday to have a play time 3. Jasper PS3 sells more only because of BR. Summer is movie season. Bad software sales proves that.
When is the other big movie season? That's right, Thanksgiving thru Christmas. You know, the big shopping season. You are also wrong about people only buying the PS3 as a Bluray player. Just ask EA who their biggest software seller happens to be.
stay in denial, thats the only way for bots like u to survive! ps3 outsold 360 even in winter and spring!! is that movie season too?? it even outsold the 360 in 2007 with a high price and no games as u bots say! and it will outsell it this holiday season and in 2008 and in every time! the only time 360 have a change to outsell the ps3 is in NA and when there is AAA game release! even price cut is not doing any good for 360!! MS 360 is in desperation now and trying to cut the prices of their cheap console!! nothing will help the 360 and i mean nothing, if there was something we would have seen it already with the year of 360(2007) why so serious bots??
With the Elite and 80GB PS3 at the same price, it clearly shows that the PS3 has far better value.
Value maybe in the way we perceive it...most people just look at price and games.
Soon the xbox will be free but live will cost you 200 dollars a year
Is the the original BC 80gig you're talking about or the 40 gig version with a hard drive upgrade.
The PS3 has the best lineup of games this year and next.
Microsoft doesn't even want to show off their 2009 lineup, and the only big 360 game left for this year is Gears of War.
120 gb vs 80 gb...OK I guess! But that's not important! At $199, I think the threat goes to the Wii the most, and 360 has potential to steal some fire from it, especially with the RPG's coming! Ps3 and 360 will battle for a while so that debate can get discussed at a later date! But the Wii is the real leader of this war, and it looks like MS are not only 'trying' to beat Ps3, but are desperate to take some of Wii's sales... Hence the $80 price cut! This should be interesting!
chop 150 bucks off of that Elite and i'll bite.....go ahead MS, I'll wait.
a price cut now wouldn't make much of a difference...i figure even if they do manage to outsell the ps3 in the fall (which is unlikely looking at the software exclusives lineup)....the drought of exclusive games after gears2 won't help against the ps3's lineup around christmas and all of 2009.
If so, then you are not a gamer at all...:)
Just simply being an exclusive isn't good enough (i.e. Too Human) The exclusive also must be a system selling exclusive to really have an impact as an exclusive. So instead of blindly counting exclusives, you should be counting A - AAA exclusives.
i never said all that now....gears will be played and beaten within days...fable2 as well.....but what im saying is......after that.....what is left for hardcore gamers exclusively on the 360?....and we all know gears2 won't push sales alot for 360 and in november gears may very still be competing with lbp and resistance still...from october there will be a downpour of the ps3 lineup... gears will sell, that's a no brainer, but sony's lineup owns both consoles after that....that is, unless ms has some stuff they're not telling us is huge and exclusive.
what are you talking about? what does sony have thats so spectacular? all i see is LBP, and resistance 2. thats one killer fall line up alright ... meh.
sigh... always hated being one of those "list the games" ppl........but here goes...lbp,motorstorm2,resista nce2,socom,naruto,wipeouthd,bi o shock,singstar2...i think that's it for pre gears, uhh...after gears?...mostly 2009 but here it is.....flower,rag doll kung fu (LBP makers),KILLZONE2,the agency,fat princess,RATCHET&CLANK SEQUEL,eyepet,afrika,dc online universe,FFV13,GT5,HEAVY RAIN,INFAMOUS,JAK AND DAXTER :LOST FRONTIER,MAG(hopefully),ROCKST AR PS3 EXCLUSIVE,TEKKEN6,TWISTED METAL,WHITE KNIGHT CHRONICLES,..........ok im tired of typing...i think those are all the exclusives for ps3 from october till 2009...if i missed any let me know....there u go man...one fall into the next....now be quiet.
For exclusives sure...but you also forgot about SOCOM (which has a huge online fanbse) and Motorstorm: PR which is the most impressive looking off-road racing game i've seen. I am personally interested in the Valkyrie Chronicles game coming out and also Bioshock and Eternal Sonata (even though they were previously on the 360, they are new to ps3 this year) It sure is the best lineup, including all the multi-plat games (Fallout 3, Dead Space, Far Cry 2, etc...) The 360 has a nice fall ahead of it as well...but I just don't think it can compare.
i dont see how you say ps3 has the best lineup when all it has is LBP,R2,and motorsttorm2(since when is that a AAA game?) and socom i guess. the 360 has GeOW2,fable2,left 4 dead,tales of V,infinite undiscovery,lost remnant,and gta4 expansion, oh and halowars but its probably only B average. and then theres the entire remake of the 360 dashboard+game installs! sorry but you probably forgot about all the rpgs when you were thinking about the 360s lineup or dont care about em . but the 360 fall lineup is way stronger than sonys measly 2 AAA games.(M2,and socom arent anything special)
"i dont see how you say ps3 has the best lineup when all it has is LBP,R2,and motorsttorm2(since when is that a AAA game?)" - Motorstorm on metacritic is on par with Fable. Last Remnant is also going to be on the PS3. As for left for Dead, what's so special about that one? It looks average. Nothing special. No AAA there. But that's my opinion and what it all basically comes down to, everyone's personal opinion. And as far as Socom, it has a large following so it is something special.
Though you may not think SOCOM is anything special... it has a larger following than that of Fable... and you put Fable 2 on your list. Even if you don't like the series... many do. Just like I'm not a big fan of Fable, but I respect those who do enjoy that title and understand that gamers can have differing opinions. There's no right or wrong in most cases. Which is why when it comes to who has the 'best' lineup... it's all depends on your preferrences. Personally, I have more games I want this fall for my PS3... but I think both lineups are pretty solid.
Well I'm glad it's coming next month and hope the best for 360.
MS should really lower the Premium to $249.99 and the Elite to $349.99. I like the 360, but the elite being the same as the PS3, I would agree that the PS3 at $399.99 is a better buy.
But I don't see why Microsoft refuses to put internal Wi-fi in the 360. If a $249 console like the Wii can have it, why not a powerhouse like the 360?
You'd think that their game division were trying to liquidate all of their stock, and was going out of business. Oh wait..
That store in general is just dirty. I mean every kmart Ive seen is just dirty. The floors look like they haven't been mopped in years. The bathrooms just make you want to puke.
nice, now confirm they are Jaspers and i might get one sooner
I'll buy one when the Elite gets to $200 with a built-in wireless connection AND the online service is free. Looks like I'll never get one o_0
I'll buy a PS3 when it gets a good game. Looks like I'll never get one o_0
Yeah, but seriously. That annual live fee adds a lot of cost to the console if you're into Online gameplay. The 360 may be $200~400 upfront, but with Online ends up being $450~650 in the long run. I refused to pay for Xbox LIVE when I had an Xbox, so I understand how hard it is for 360 owners to pony up the cash.
now im only waiting for the jasper chips to hit and a good game bundle
wow... some people are never satisfied.
It's sickening to be a PS3 Fanboy and see this trash. Just appreciate the fact that the 360 is cheaper and that the entry fee towards 360 exclusives is easier now for potential dual-console owners instead of twisting this in your own demented ways to help you sleep better at night. Geez.
first of all a price cut will hurt in the long run, if ms brings the price down too much it will then be considers the inferior console. The arcade model is a joke, the 360 is very well known for online and being able to download games and demos and you can't do either with the arcade. Plus with the ps3 most likely getting A $50.00 price cut we are back at square 1 again with only a $50.00 difference between the 2
Being the cheapest console in fact will drive console sales more than ever. Unlike Nintendo, Microsoft has teh games and services to back it all up. Sony should hurry up with their price cut as well. $100 difference is alot.
You would think being the cheapest console would drive sales more than ever... but it's been the cheapest in Europe for awhile and it still gets outsold by the PS3 and Wii there. I'm not saying it won't happen... but you can never be sure about these things. As much as anyone may think they can predict what consumers will choose.
I just payed $170 for a psp.
The way I see it... LBP has been having some heavy promoting lately, thats obvious. BUT, who can deny the fact that the most anticipated game this holiday season is the follow up to 2006's GOTY award... Gears 2!! You have gears 2 and an xbox at $199..... thats going to really push consoles. IMO... we'll just have to wait and see. I still think Sony is on the wrong track.... yes the 80 and 160 ps3 are nice... but they should have put a 20gig out there at $299, maybe even take out the wi-fi and HD cables to make it even cheaper... i'm sorry but at $399 and $499, thats still too expensive for the mass market. There are still millions of cheap azz ps2 owners just itching to jump in to this gen but they just can't afford it... how much longer do you think they are going to wait on the sidelines if the 360 is going to be at the proven "sweet spot" of $199 with most of PS3 past exclusives already being released on the 360? (GTA, DMC, FF, etc, etc)
soon the general consumer will take the 360 as choice...people like cheap new products....
as soon as 360 price drops happen they will be on top, especially with this holiday season.....humm lets assume i am a normal parent that knows nothing of gaming, should i get my kid a 200 system or a 400....what do you think is going to happen....360 has a bigger game library just by looking at a game store or walmart compared to the ps3. i still know nothing of gaming. i have no clue of the RROD issue all i know that it is cheaper and more games are on it. therefore i would buy my kid a 360....DUH...360 is not going to disappear. this season the 360 WILL sell like hot cakes....ooo and wtf would a seven year old kid need a blu-ray player lol
you all are talking and think of hardcore gamers.....lol your all so wrong....the general public will only see a 200 system with more games on it.....compared to a 400 system with a blueray player in it.....wtf does someone like 15 and under need a bluray player.
They can drop the price all they want. I don't buy garbage.
PS3 isn't made for kids...which probably explains why you don't have one. They could cut the 360s price down to $150 and I still wouldn't want it. It's crap folks...get over it. You bought a DEFECTIVE product. I think the giant Harry Potter picture on the back of the arcade box says it all. Oh yeah, and Mii's, now? Kid's system...
I'll just wait for the better PC ver....:D
lol actually i own a ps3 for blu-ray..i also work at gamestop and i see the consumers....and 10% hard core gamers....all i am say is that you have your head so far stuck up your.....you dont see what i am saying...majority of the consumers who are kids with parents who walk over to the 360 wall. A ton of people still buy ps2 games(used ps2 Games). i get so many people comeing in not having money for a new system...but when the 360 hits 200$ it will sell so dont think it wont...ESPECIALLY CHRISTMAS TIME YOU HAVE NO IDEA
It's nice that we are all gamers and some of you/us have formed strong allegiances with a particular console, but the typical casual gamer, doesn't give a F about weather a game is exclusive for this console or that one! They just see a game they like, and check the price of the system... and make their decision from there! To be honest the casual gamer usually doesn't care about how much great technology this game system has in it, all they care about is if it can play the game they want to play... Which in alot of cases is Madden! And they will probably only buy madden and nothing else. Sounds crazy, but I know alot of people who repeat this cycle over and over again. I keep trying to tell them about other games, but they only buy madden! Kind of sad in my opinion!
