Hopefully, as more and more games hit the shelves next month (May), we can see more poeple carring away a PS3, or a Wii, or a 360.

SmokeyMcBear3775d ago

jesus ps2 is just taking em all to school. Consumer Confidence. Brand Recognition is an amazing thing... business 101

God of Gaming3775d ago

ummm more like the price tag. $129 is dirt cheap for the amount of games they have. I also have a number of friends who are at this point re-buying it due to their other PS2 systems crapping out.

power of Green 3775d ago

the fact you can buy a PS2 for less than your monthly cable bill or at least mine.

Rasulis3775d ago

Ya. You'd be amazed at the sway price has over consumers. The PS2 is a good example of this because it really didn't take off until it dropped below the 200 mark.

xfrgtr3775d ago (Edited 3775d ago )

HAHAHAHA!The ps2 is still outselling the 360,360 sales in the US dropped from 228K in Feb to 199K in March , PS3 went up by a bit from 127K to 130K. Very bad sign for Microsoft,LOL.The PS3 was the only next-gen console to see an increase over its February sales. That was a significant dip for the 360.

FordGTGuy3775d ago

Because the announcement of the Xbox 360 Elite/

The BS Police3775d ago

The PS2 is also outselling the PS3.

Theo11303775d ago

If people keep buying ps2 this slows down the next gen adaptation, especially for the ps3 because that one more ps3 still siting on shelves.

EZCheez3775d ago

Both consoles' sales have slowed for obvious reasons to consumers

1. XBox360 fans want the elite and will wait for it

2. PS3 fans want a friggin price drop and are waiting for it.

DrRage773775d ago

you honestly can't be serious with your dumb statement...think about it for a minute. you are ripping on teh 360 because the ps2 is outselling it. the ps2 is also TROUNCING it's OWN brand, the ps3. if the ps3 was selling more than the 360, you can start laughing, but you really are proving your complete ignorance and stupidity by laughing when the ps3 is in FOURTH place in a console competition, BEHIND the 360, Wii and ps2...lol HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA right back at you!

jwatt3775d ago

I think the ps2 selling better than next-gen consoles is more of a benefit for Sony. The same people who are buying ps2's now are going to be the same people buying ps3's at the end of it's life cycle. That's how you know ps3 is going to be around alot longer than expected. I also don't think the ps3 isn't doing so bad because for a system that has a high price tag and suposely no games it has three million worldwide. Plus Sony has to focus on the ps2, psp and ps3 while Microsoft only has to focus on the 360, Imagine God of war 2 coming out for the ps3 in the fall. I think, even with it's price tag there are alot of people out there that want a ps3 right now but are just anxiously waiting for Sony to give them a reason to buy one(Lair, Heavenly Sword, Home). The ps3 is going to be ok, actually I think it's ok now.

predator3775d ago

You sound like a prat, look at the figures first mate, the 360 (year and a half old) is still outselling the ps3, now thats not good

Assumptions, assumptions, assumptions

@ The BS Police

5.4 - Ps2 selling everthing is a problem for everyone especially ps3
If people keep buying ps2 this slows down the next gen adaptation, especially for the ps3 because that one more ps3 still siting on

shelves.

And how are you so sure that the guy who bought a PS2 wasnt going to get a 360? You are just making assumptions! another assumer

5.5 - Well
Both consoles' sales have slowed for obvious reasons to consumers

1. XBox360 fans want the elite and will wait for it

2. PS3 fans want a friggin price drop and are waiting for it.
-----------

Once again, more assumptions, sure there are alot of people that want the Elite ver and are holding off, and alot of people who want

a price drop on the PS3 and are holding off, but once again, you dont know that for sure, you just think that, and are sating your

assumptions as fact. And im sorry but it just doesnt work that way.

5.6 - ps3 is in FOURTH place HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!
you honestly can't be serious with your dumb statement...think about it for a minute. you are ripping on teh 360 because the ps2 is

outselling it. the ps2 is also TROUNCING it's OWN brand, the ps3. if the ps3 was selling more than the 360, you can start laughing,

but you really are proving your complete ignorance and stupidity by laughing when the ps3 is in FOURTH place in a console

competition, BEHIND the 360, Wii and ps2...lol HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA right back at you!
-----------

Your logic is flawed! because you say that the PS2 is "TROUNCING" the PS3, but its also "TROUNCING" the 360, so the same point

that applys to the PS3, also applys to the 360, however, a PS2 sale is still beneficial to Sony and not beneficial to MS, so yea,

while it could be a potential lose sale for PS3, its definitely a loss for MS, as they get nothing out of that. Whereas, at least

Sony is

Once again, this is just an assumption
