PS3 won't pass 360 for at least two years "without a price advantage," says Pachter

Global PS3 sales will take at least two years to pass those of 360 unless Sony can bring the machine to a "price advantage" position, Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter told VG247 today.

The story is too old to be commented.

HajAminSaniBinJihadi3139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

Americans will always be beaten one day.

Look at Ford. For 80 years they were king.

Then the japanese came along. Sony is japans biggest electronic maker. They know how to make Hardware that works

im going to request a ban for you.

islamistic and anti american slogans are not welcome anywhere.
Try another forum maybe something more militant.

Jihadi in the console wars! Everytime I think I've seen the dumbest Sony fanboy post it is always topped a week later. Well played, HajaminjihadiWHATEVER, well played!

If Pachter said the Lakers will win the NBA championship then I would bet on the Celtics. The guy has been terminally wrong for so long that now he just changes his predictions every couple months to avoid being detected.

If you want a good laugh then type "Pachter" in the N4G search engine and read some of his predictions from a year or two ago. Here's one from almost 2 years ago:

you must be a VERY smart guy...uaehauehaueha

"Says Pachter"

NUFF SAID.

SupaPlaya3139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

Take your hatred else where bud, this is news for gamers, not political playing ground for haters.

I am assuming you are not some American kid posting as some foreign country user.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please give Racism and Fanboyism the BOOT.

jrsenkbe3139d ago

I am completely in agreement with you. The main reason people want SONY to fail and MS to win is because one is a Japanese company and the other American. With the economy, anhthing non American is looked down upon.

Wake up guys, if it wasnt for the Japanese, we may not even have video games.

marinelife93139d ago

Since Pachter said so that means Sony will catch them by November of this year with no price decrease.

solidsnakus3139d ago

well i somewhat agree. jap made hardware does seem alot more reliable. cars and electronics but then again, look at the software in the ps3 and wii. its complete garbage, jap people dont know anything about the internet and the social aspect of gaming. social of anytyhing i dont even think theres been a 'myspace' made out of japan since everything there is so lonely.

1ikedamaster3139d ago

the ps3 never gonna beat the xbox 360

I think we can all agree.

JsonHenry3139d ago

I hope they "finish" dead even. That way the next consoles will be that much better because they really have to compete for our money.

ThanatosDMC3139d ago

Eeww... Patcher said this... nvm

AsswipewithyourFlag3138d ago

yanks are too bloody sensitive, say one Anti-yank statement and they cry prejudice and hatred, take a look at what you do to the world around you and what the world thinks of america. Japan's technology is superior to americans, americans just steal ideas and copy what Japan creates. To say other wise is ignorance.

This doesn't come down to consoles, it comes down to racist america thinking they are superior because they build a crapbox that every yank buys because its made by yanks. fvcking pathetic homos

So, it'll take 2 years at current pricing?

Pachter... you really are deluded.

PS3isBUST3139d ago

At the current price points, the only thing the PS3 would be doing in 2 years is lying in a graveyard.

morganfell3139d ago

Exactly. He doesn't look at the rapid decline of the 360 hardware viability nor does he consider the vast library of PS3 titles. Many of which non of us are yet aware. I would like to have the crystal ball he is using that reveals the impact of future PS3 titles.

tda-danny3139d ago

Your an idiot.

In just over 2 years, the PS3 has sold over 21million. Year on year it sells just as many units as the Xbox.

The Lazy One3139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

It would need to sell twice as many consoles as the 360 month to month. It is just not going to do that. It could put a huge dent in the margin, but it doesn't have the kind of momentum it needs to do that in one year.

It could sell amazingly well in all regions, and still not pass the 360 in one year.

You also have to consider that microsoft isn't going to sit there and let sony pick up momentum. They are going to continue to add content and price aggressively. They aren't just going to lay down and put everything on autopilot.

edit: @below

I was figuring they've been selling comparatively between 8-10 million a year. Since that's what the gap is, it would have to sell twice as much over the year, and likewise twice as much per month. But thus, point taken.

JOLLY13139d ago (Edited 3139d ago )

If there is one thing I have learned on this site is that morganfail doesn't understand math. He can't project numbers for a couple months let alone years.

*edit* To the lazy one... Double the 360 month to month? There is approximately an 8 million unit lead. For the ps3 to get above the 360 it will have to sell over 600,000 more than the 360 every month.

Monchichi0253139d ago

You guys do realize that Sony is selling less consoles month to month compared to last year, while the 360 is increasing month to month. Just throwing that out there!

sak5003139d ago

Man look at the guys above with 9+ bubbles. You'd think sony is bubbling them up or what. They make absolutely no sense in their comments and yet their bubbles keep going up. Luckily this doesnt happen in real life otherwise they'll be leaders in the industry rather than sitting on their couches in mom's basement, using n4g as their fantasy world.

To quote an example of utter trash, look at morgenfell's comment. We all know 360 has been trashing ps3 sales since last 4-5 months. Its sales are increasing and ps3's hve come down and yet he is spouting total B$.

Jinxstar3139d ago

How does patcher still have a job?

Gina-get-u3138d ago

@ sak500:

I couldn't help it anymore so I just have to say it. I had a bunch of girlfriends over one night and we went through morganfell's post history together, so I've confirmed that it's not just me:

morganfell is creepy in that disturbing, repulsive sort of way.

We all felt that he couldn't possibly be serious because the stuff he says is so consistently stupid nobody could possibly mean it for real. And yet his crap is sooo not funny at all, as in, totally devoid of humor, that he sounds like he truly beieves in what he's saying.It is almost impossible to fake it.

If I had to pick a person that most resembles the vibe morganfell puts out, I would say Charles Manson.

Hey sorry for venting. It's a girl thing.

Mindboggle3138d ago

Ill just leave you with this....

360 - 28 million in 3 years
PS3 - 21 million in 2 years

sak5003138d ago

@gina

hahahah well, I haven't had the misfortune to go through morgen's his history but i agree with your comment. He comments really make sense only to him and his cell mates in the asylum.

For the sake of all the girl gamers our there I hope you'll balance out the crazy and trash talking juuken/ultimolo's comments. Although haven't seen you around much but +bubbles and keep up the balance..

morganfell3138d ago

Well Jinxstar, consider his history. Pachter has the accuracy of a ten year old Daisy air rifle. Now we know why so many Wall Street firms have gone belly up. With predictions like his it is little wonder so many lost their ass.

Without a price cut, PS3 might not be alive in 2 years. As far as passing??? XBOX 360.... damn

PS3 needs many a price cuts and a miracle, and maybe a year after XBOX 360 drops out of the market in favor of the XBOX 720, maybe PS3 will pass it then, but even that's probably stretching it.

SupaPlaya3139d ago

It looks like you and Pachter have some great chemistry together.

Here's hoping you two live happily ever after =)
