The Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 are currently engaged in one of the fiercest and bloodiest console wars ever, with a winner yet to be declared. With all three home consoles still in the running, how can you expect to pick a victor?
PS3>Wii>>>x360 in WW sales at the end of this gen or Wii>PS3>>>x360 in WW sales x360 will do around 35m lifetime AT BEST PS3's european sales would easily offset x360's total WW sales by the end of this gen
The 360 must first win in the war against itself. The 33% War
new word, NAH
there is a lot of articles lately that just keep saying xbox360 will own because of the price cut. it,s already cheaper than the ps3 and the arcade sku is cheaper than the wii,and still it,s being outsold by them in world sales EVERYMONTH. price in not the only thing,there is VALUE. i will say it again VALUE yes VALUE. price is not everything. but still xboxfans just keep saying xbox360 will sell more than the ps3, like there is some kind of magic that will let the xbox360 sales explode this fall. i will wait and see(and laugh):P
It will .............NOT!!!!
I approve. \m/etallica ftw! Also, No, it will not.
who cares? i play games not look at numbers
They have positioned themselves very well to do so. Not saying they will, but they have a chance. And @1.8 _ The pricedrop is significant because it puts the 360 at the mass market pricepoint of $200. What that means is that the system can now be a impulse buy instead of a luxury buy. And don't gimme that BS about value because the 360 does offer the best value for a casual gamer. All casual's want is a system to play great games on. And the 360 has already proven they have GREAT games. They don't care about Blu-Ray players, storage, HD and all the other stuff us hardcore gamers care about. Hence why the Wii is so succesful. It has A LOT less then the 360 and yet is still the best selling system!
Hell no. *Goes back in playing MGO*
Not just no.... EPIC NO!
and when the 360 wins in sales, all consoles will magically turn into 360's, and we shall all hold hands in the street when they all RROD at the same time. Hey MS, how bout making that new d-pad standard, LIVE rebates, cheaper rentals and games, hdd on core. That way your ambitions look more like a goal and less like a dream. Nintendo and Sony will sell more units, but I don't think they're the better systems.
2 words... no
um... two words?
2 letters you mean.
Wii PS3 X360 or PS3 Wii X360 PS3's european sales LTD would be enough to offset x360's WW installed base. bigger library = / Better library In 2 years time there will be GOW3/MAG/KZ2/HEAVY RAIN/UNCHARTED 2/RESISTANCE 2/LBP/FF13 versus/WKS in the market what has x360 got besides Halo wars perhaps if thats not canned. Alan Wake and SC conviction are good games but not BIG GAMES
it was a joke...
I swear other than resistance you stated titles that are pretty much all guaranteed to be 2009 launches. The way I see this whole thing going is: Ps3 Wii 360 the Wii will eventually slow down and become less desirable as the Ps3's price drops. The 360 is cheap as allready and it so far hasn't been selling all that amazingly ( like the wii ) and we all think that they're going to go and rush out their next console within a few years. Also people's perception ( I'm talking average joe's ) is that the Ps3 is desirable and the Xbox is just the Xbox. When the Ps3's price is dropped more there'll be alot more people jumping on the wagon and even more still when it's dropped further over time, which is why Sony's 10 year plan is so genius. They can actually profit from this and whilst microsoft releases it's next product the Ps3 will be cheaper and still highly desirable with great graphics and fun games, with a great library. Microsoft can't really the drop the price much lower than it is and Sony's got plenty of time to drop the price. I expect a LOT of wii owners to make the jump once the price goes down on the Ps3.
[[maybe the xbox 720 will do better,maybe it wont explode in your home]]
;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D NO NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS!!! ;-D If the 'xBox 360' doesn't beat the 'Wii' sales for this Month in the U.S.of.A then it's a FAILURE!!!
maybe xbox 720 will blow up the whole city!
Though,the Xbox 360 will indeed succeed in providing the most amount of Flops to the Xbots
Woah.. I've never had so much fun and enjoyment from playing these.. "Flops" that you like to say the 360 has. Please, MS, give the 360 more "flops!!!!" Yay.
3 words NOT A CHANCE
It is clear that Microsoft will continue to deliver Multiple Flops in the Gaming Industry,Feeble II,Banjo Kazooie:Sluts&Dolts,and Tears of Bore will follow in the Failure of the aforementioned Software Packages
"With Ninja Flopden,Poo Human,Infinite Unfloppery,and Fails of Hysteria in it's Arsenal" I'm not sure what some of those are as I've never heard of them, but at least you recognize that you are a failure. =)
No smiley face!!! It didn't make sense your talking out your arse
u have taken the position of the most amazing troll on N4G!!!
Poor Xbots,such a Flop Species does not deserve to Exist
[[Rick Astley,i love you]]
The PS3 is like a snowball effect, the longer it rolls it's only gonna get bigger. That's my honest opinion of the PS3. But if PS3 can't afford to lower the prices. As long as there's a big price difference, 360 will do well. That's the best chance for 360, price.
then why is both ps3 and wii outselling it 2:1/3;1 there?? price is not an advantage. It has more to do with brand equity ps2 owners would buy ps3 sometimes in their lifetime. as simple as that
It's actually been that way with all the Sony consoles, in that once the system gets rolling, it's impossible to stop the momentum.
But Sony's due to deliver a Slim-line PS3 by 2010, which will allow them to dip below $300.
"ps2 owners would buy ps3 sometimes in their lifetime. as simple as that" And for those who have moved on from gaming or died....how do you predict they will purchase a ps3? There are no guarantees that an individual will stick with the same brand of console from one generation to the next....so lets not make this huge assumption.
the only thing that kept the PS3 from catching up to the 360 was the US but PS3 has been outselling the 360 all year, PS3 will catch up to 360 in probably 2 years
PS3 will catch x360 in 1 year time PS3 is around 16m vs 19m x360 that 3m difference will be gone by the end of this year
its more like 20mill-15.5 mill 4.5mill gap. it might be around 4mill by the end of the year, at least thats my opinion.
It's possible, but I doubt it. During a lot of the months the PS3 barely outsold the 360, where other months crushed the 360.. And, with the new price point of $199, you have to put that into account and if it will increase sales for each month. And, I'm thinking that the 360 will have another price drop sometime in the close future.. They are already making profit for each console sold, unlike Sony. But, I give it about 2inahalf - 3 years before Sony takes the lead.
PS3 will sell atleast 2m-3m extra units in europe by the end of this year And in NA i expect ps3 and x360 sales to be equal this Fall Factor in exrra 500k for PS3 in Japan for 1 year. Although it will easily be a million since FF13 demo will move a lot of ps3s in Japan next March so 4-5m units advantage would be on the side of ps3 in 1 year time . so definitely ps3 will overtake x360 within 1 year time (MAX) If the EU sales take off then ps3 will overtake x360 in 6 months time. In dec/nov ps3 would outsell x360 by around 4m units in the PAL region
have any links saying ms is making profit from the 360?
why should we care about Don Reisinger's opinion? anyone?
I love to hear any opinions from those great analysts. Since they are wrong most of the time, you just don't listen to them, take the opposite as granted, and sure enough, you will then most likely be right yourself.
... nice 1!
This xbox and the next one will not top ps3 ITS future proof for 10 years Ps4 concept is coming soon and i bet its all kept secret till the day xbox is shown ha ha and wait till sony unlocks the ps3 X box will end soon 2009/10 till 2078 when the ps 9 comes out
No i see Wii first then PS3(or vise versa) then the 360
no, since microsoft will probably stop supporting it after the next xbox comes out.
I think the next twelve to fifteen months will decide that.
No, If it had not been for the 33% problem, the 360 most likely would have been the winner. And I would have gotten one by now :/
What kind of site this is every post is something negative about the 360.I DONT KNOW WHAT MICROSOFT DONE TO THESE PPL BUT THEY ARE REALLY TRYNA SABOTAGE THE 360.Maybe its because they put up a good fight with the almighty SONY.
MS have put our lives at risk they have burnt down a mans house caused the death of many kids who tried imatating power ranger, burnt peoples faces, put peoples lives at misery, ripped people of selling $150 hard drives and such They have commited.... PUBLIC FRAUD
You'll learn what is garbage vs real news/legit opinion soon enough. It takes a bit to figure out the legit contributors, ignor the rabid rants and smartass child-like remarks from the bulk of the N4G fans that happen to be a collection of Sony internet T****s.
the irony :)
I seem to remember a saying that goes well with you POG and i think it included a pot calling a kettle black
POG is one of the most ranting, mudslinging, dont need facts to tell a good story, fanboys out there. He just doesn't like to play as much as he did when his side was winning. You got to hand it to the Sony Fans. We put up with your crap for about 3 years. You even had the media on board with you, but we stood there and took it. Now, since you haven't had any games all year and the "We're all about the games" chant has died down, along with the "PS3 has no games" chant, you've all tucked tail and run. You'se dont contribute anything to the conversation, you just whine theres too many Sony fans. Well get used to it, this time next year there will be a whole lot more, and those of you left will be braying about your XB720 coming out soon, to the adbandonment of 30M 360 owners, (if they get that far)"Woo, Halo 4 launch title" you'll all yell. Whoopee, but the machine itself will still be another cheap PC in consoles clothes.
Not that I care who wins or who buys what but Microsoft has been sabotaging us for over 2 decades with their crap. I feel sorry for all the people that have been buying PCs(or 360s) over the years and now get anxious every time they click the mouse ,visit the web ,open outlook or turn on their console.
