The UK release of the PS3 should be the technology event of the year says the UK Times. Instead it's in danger of falling flat. So what went wrong?
Man these people have flawed reasoning it's almost child-like it's no wonder Sony can sell consoles over there with such dominace. I love the way they explain tech and how it will appeal to consumers. Built for Flat pannel TV's? as if that's the reason there high-def. lol it's almost sad to see them so behind the "times" when it comes to known facts and popular opinion.
At least some are wising up, i give them that!; still strange though!. They still have a little bit of that pre-PS3 launch 2nd coming of Christ mind set.
but I don't expect it to out do the Wii for long after launch, -NO I think the Wii will continue to out-sell everything for probably at least the next 6 months.....still its strange to see Sony in the position they are in now, I mean its early but clearly the dominance of last gen is over.....I think having 3 strong brands is great for the industry with M$ and Sony pushing either other and of course Nintendo, uhmm yeah they will continue to do that Nintendo "stuff" that they do. Its good to be a gamer!
Anyone who says it advantageous to have three strong brands in the market and how it's a good time to be a gamer is obviously an unbiased gamer and deserves some positive feedback, which is what I've rightly given you. Although, with eight bubbles already, is it even possible to go any higher! Speaking of which does anyone know if its possible to get down to ZERO bubbles?
I'm curious as your comment has been deleted by a moderator. I missed it, what did you say? Without directly saying it again of course!
For Europe to realize the PS3 is no more powerful than the 360, and not worth that much money. And I would not be using Blu-Ray as a selling point, as HD-DVD has 85% market share in Europe, and going strong.
I'm skeptical, but if what you said was true about HD-DVD in Europe, I expect that number to fall drastically when a million BD players hit later this week. I think BD is one of their biggest selling points. As far as I know, typically speaking, technology-hardy gamers are also people who love to watch movies. And with the PS3's game quality matching that of the 360, the added benefit of one of the best BD players on the market - for a fraction of the standalone cost - is a HUGE incentive.
a million may hit the SHELVES but that does not mean they'll hit the STREETS. Could end up just like America with PS3's stacked on the shelves collecting dust. Honestly, America and Europe have somewhat similar tastes, more so than say Japan and America. If the PS3 has been in last plpace in sales in America, would you agree it might be a similar case in Europe? After the flashy and hyped lauch...nothing. The Wii and 360 momentum might be too strong for a console as pricey as the PS3 to be successful, especially after the past weeks announements. Ace Combat 6, DMC4, Mercs 2...
