For those of you that are a bit slow, like CaseyRyback_CPO. Alan Wake will recieve universal praise AND sell millions. View 6 hours ago It's better than Wipeout. View 19 hours ago Killzone 2, Little Big Planet and Uncharted are overrated! Halo is not! View 1 day 5 hours ago butterbubblefinger "If you lost all of your bubbles, it's because you had nothing compelling to add to the conversation" PS3 fans on N4G have a pack mentality, you bubble each other up all the damn time. How else do you explain the likes of ultimolu having 9 bubbles, morganfell 8 bubbles and yourself having 9 bubbles. You also bubble down 360, Wii, DS, PC, Dreamcast, iPhone fans like crazy. Anyone that does not subscribe to Sony doctrine get debubbled. View 1 day 5 hours ago I guess they couldn't afford to make an RPG each with PS3 development costs.

"The 360 has better games than the PS3" View 2 days 22 hours ago I hope this isn't true. If they do this, they will end up like Free Radical and Factor-5. All that time, all that money and all that effort and most of them were rewarded with pink slips and P45's. View 2 days 23 hours ago Killzone 2 has been beaten black and blue with a giant fail stick!

Those are some pretty good numbers for the first part of the year. I'm curious to see how it pans out as the year goes on...
So much for the 360's price cut... It seem like that Sony doesn't need a price cut, they are already making a lot of money from three platforms plus a bigger library of AAA titles from the competitors.
oMAR 360's price cut worked as intended. It kept the 360 relevant. If they didnt cut it Sony would still be stomping a mudhole in MS. Once Sony cuts the price you will see 360 for $150.00 or $99 -lol
Oh no you didn't. :x The pricecut did work for the 360 but not in the long run like Microsoft had hoped.
Oh yes I did!!!
In what way is it not working? It's still outselling the PS3, eventhough Sony released the most hyped title this gen with Killzone 2. In late 2008 it was "just wait until Killzone 2 arrives" and now it's "just wait until they cut the price". You act like having the smallest installbase is something to brag about. I'm sure 3rd party developers find it extremely attractive. Especially considering the extra time & money investment they have to put into developing PS3 games.
Soda, how blind could you be to not see the 360 and the PS3 are still neck to neck? The 360 is ahead but they're not stealing the PS3's thunder. And for heaven's sake, lay off Killzone 2 already. Is it not a great game? Then why are you riding om the sales?
And did you just accuse me again of being darkpower? Are you seriously kidding me?
In 2008 the PS3 had outsold the 360 by almost a million units until the price cut gave them a boost and in the end of 2008 MS and Sony's own numbers showed them in a tie. Now we're 4 months into 2009 and the 360 has a worldwide lead of just about 200,000. That could disappear in the blink of an eye, and you have to wonder - why was the PS3 outselling the 360 so badly in the first place last year? The price cut helped, but if the underlying issue still exists, will it be enough in the long term?
...MIRACLE at E3 2009'!!! ;-D
$299/£199 PS3 and it's bye bye ChatBox 360!!! ;-P
Why has that guy 'sajj420' been spam'ed for??? Erm don't the Mods like the numbers??? ;-D To painful??? ;-D
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that $199 360's aren't exciting the masses. But let's see how 2009 games have reviewed metacriticly... 360 Halo Wars 82 Ninja Blade 69 Race Pro 72 PS3 Killzone 2 91 MLB 09': The Show 90 Flower 87 Yakuza 3 94 *so far.....38/40 famitsu magazine* So it looks like PS3 made the honor roll so far in 2009, 360 please report to tutorial ASAP. :)
Numbers are out. Droids are on the defensive, as usual.
wish i could sell crap in a box for $199 and sell it to brick head morons like M$.
Um...what defense? With all due respect, that pricecut did nothing. Just saying... *whistles and walks away*
Um...Sony doomed? :x Seriously, I thought Sony was doomed to fail? What the hell happened? Something went wrong dammit. Media, you better start printing up those doom and gloom articles!
Sony the company may have a tough year this time. Watch their quarterly reports, but this goes to show the ps3 is still going strong. Now bring on the games!
Does it actually say : " Thank you for your listening. " ... XD Anyway, goes to show Wii isn't doomed at all ( neither is the PS3). So who cares anyway, i thought we love gayms
I do. I bought X-men today. Liked the demo a lot. :3
So in other words Sony was right when they said they wouldnt be passing the 360 until 5+yrs They better cut the price before its too late
Gamers were right when they said 360 price cut doesnt do jack but keep their nose from submerging with the rest of their bodies.
what? noses from submerging with the rest of their bodies? eh?
Nevermind his incoherent drivel. The poor boy is in some kind of severe psychosis.
When year was it that the PS3 was supposed to start closing the gap?
Call me when the 360 and PS3 aren't neck and neck.
wow... its slowly revealing itself... 360 pricecut just totally means nothing! no way microsoft can spin on these figures.
Well If a sony does a price cut.. i dont know it probaly surge sales.
