The holiday season is always critical for video game manufacturers and most agreed that Sony had the definite edge heading into Black Friday. Well, so far, things are going quite well.
Sales numbers please instead of whats in the top 20 and whats not. Slightly bias if i do say so myself.
Well looking at black friday sales of people buying new consoles it seemed the PS3 and 360 were pretty neck n neck. But LOTS of people buying consoles. Didn't see many wii purchases especially not like i saw last yr but lots of ps3 bundles got sold as well as 360
Now that the PS3 has hit a lower price, PS2 owners will migrate over to the Ps3. Like Sony themselves said: "The PS2 owners of today are the PS3 customers of tomorrow." It's the third year of the PS3 and just like the PS1 and PS2 before it, it's around this time when they go on fire and destroy the competition.
Actually, its the fourth year...
the PS3 was released november 11 2006 so unless my math is wrong somehow, its 3 years
You're math is wrong because today is November 28th, 2009. We're now in its fourth year
The ps3 bundles ive seen online have been pretty amazing deals, so it would be crazy not to get one those. the only 360 bundle ive seen is with a lego game and pure. If i was shopping around this holiday i would def pick up a ps3 bundle.
Sorry but I just have to :) a little bit after reading your reply. You just summed up most articles written today. Honestly it is hard to find an unbiased article in gaming today. There is no doubt Sony is cleaning up with their recent price drop and all these enticing bundles for black Friday. If I didn't have all the games in these bundles I would have already picked up to have a spare unit. I am still considering taking advantage of one of these deals and just reselling or giving the games as gifts to others.
this kid is a retard
DJ Pillz is right actually. We've literally just broken into ps3's 4th year. 2006/7 was its 1st year 2007/8 was its 2nd 2008/9 was its 3rd And now we've past november 11th, ps3 has entered its 2009/10 period so it is in its 4th year Saying that, ps3 is still in its 3rd year in europe cos it launched here in march 23rd 2007
I went to four electronic stores here in Indy. I saw mostly people buying 360's. I didn't see many PS3's,...especially on the shelves. All the PS3's on the floor were gone when I got there. I arrived after the lines and I'm still feeling the effects of shoplag.
"DJ Pillz is right actually.

PS3 was "born" November 2006 It turned 1, November 2007 It turned 2, November 2008 It turned 3, November 2009 If the PS3 was a child, it would be 3 years old. But it is in it's 4th year. It turns 4, November 2010
It had to! I am sooo not surprised :0
I knew this was going to happen there was what 140 million ps2's sold? the ONLY thing that was holding the ps3 back was the combination of the economy and the price Edit: a disagree? someone is butt hurt ... facts are facts and the console sales for the holidays will prove it
What's so great about sales? I guess the Wii is the best console this generation
"What's so great about sales?" Ask the Neo Geo, 3D0, Jaguar, Dreamcast, Xbox, and Gamecube. They all have one thing in common. Not enough people bought it. Look at the SNES, N64, PS1, and PS2. They all have long lives and support. So HARDWARE sales are pretty damn important. Software sales on the other hand is just banter.
haha seriously? without console/game sales we wouldn't get any new games or accessories .... so yea sales are important not to mention it's fun to rub it in the 360 fanboys faces considering they like to play the sales game every chance they get like the saying goes: what comes around goes around ....
i was thinking of winter... people did not buy a heater? strange.
lol that was great made me lol bubbles for you PS3= It only does everything
Still waiting for a non-biased site to validate and substantiate the assumed news. PS3 FANS are so used to getting kicked around, they jump the gun and assume the best. I just hope it works out for them. It would be a sad day if PS3 fell short. :-) I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THOSE BOOMING SOFTWARE SALES TO GO ALONG WITH THE BOOMING PS3 CONSOLE SALES! SURELY EVERYONE WILL PICK UP THOSE AAA EXCLUSIVES THAT SONY HAS PUT OUT ALL YEAR! WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? UNCHARTED 2 AT NUMBER ONE? DEMON'S SOULS AT NUMBER TWO? INFAMOUS AT NUMBER THREE? I CAN'T WAIT FOR NPD NEXT MONTH! EVERYONE HAS BEEN CLAMORING FOR THOSE AWESOME PS3 TITLES! :-) THERE'S NO WAY PEOPLE WOULD PICK UP PS3'S WITHOUT BUYING UP THOSE STATE-OF-THE-ART EXCLUSIVES! RIGHT? Uh... Right? Ummmmmmmmm..... Hello?
The reason that I like it so much is because the beat is catchy, the video was over overblown and original, and it reminds me of when the last time the Playstation Franchise was on top. THE EIGHTIES. :-) Spin? I would say that the person spinning is the one that tries to divert the topic of conversation by posting YouTube Videos. Now THAT'S irony. :-) Now run along and buy a game... CHOP! CHOP!
ps3 plays blueray free online netflix thats only 8.99 a month if u want it wifi made into it not 100 dollars to add it wow xbox is last gen wow and also doesnt make their systems cheap so they can get more sells haha walmart kmart target and gamestop r all sold out of ps3s here the gamestop here had the xboxs coming out of the storage room cant sell many systems and have the ps3s line up selling them
PS3 is better because of Blu ray free online built in wi fi and web browsing and ummmmm what else.
Games and free online
It won't cause you to go blind after blowing up and hurling last gen shrapnel in your eye.... Or is the blindness from the sub HD exclusives ie halo. I just don't know anymore.
its better cuz it ONLY DOES EVERYTHING .. unlike 360 of course.. it only blows up your house,heats up your living room,wakes the whole block up,makes ppl fatty no life virgins,comes in multiple discs,takes up usefull space,rips you off,takes your money,helps guys find boys to molest,and it ONLY does 60% epic failure. BOW WOW SUCKA'S! JUMP OUT THE TITANIC AND SWIM TO THE PS3 TROPICAL ISLANDS WERE ALL YOUR DREAMS ARE A REALITY.
Where as people who buy the 360 bought it for Xbox live gaming, superior controller, the looks, multiplatforms the overwhelming number of exclusives and more to come in 2010 Project Natal and the best community for gamers out there. You can get a superior adapter for the 360 aswell if you want to game wirelessly. If I didn't own a console today I know I'll be making the smart choice and go buy an Xbox 360 Elite.
Wait wait wait. Did I read that right? You said people will buy a console by the way it looks? Thats important to you is it? Are you hoping that if you gaze for long enough at your Xbox that its gonna blow you a kiss or take you out on a date or something? Oh and even more lulz for the rest of your comment but I singled that part out as it was the funniest =D
The bots are really starting to crack. This one is talking to himself. I guess its a nice change of pace for you after only conversing with the 12 year old Klan members that populate live.
XBOX Live gaming- Whats that? The thing which makes you pay 90 bucks a year for everythign the PS3 can do bar Cross Game Chat? Superior Controller- How is it superior? And do you decide on how to buy a console by its controller, really? To me I like the analog sticks next to each other... feels better. The Looks- Owned yourself seeing as the PS3 looks better. Multiplatforms- Ok you buy sad multiplats and I'll buy exclusives. Deal? Overwhelmign number of exclusives- Like Forza 3... and err... umm.. Halo? Project Natal- YESS!!! Can't wait, it will only obliberate gaming, causing gaming to finish as we know it. Pedophiles will buy it to play with Milo and there will be tons of gamers with broken tv's and feet. Seriously. Project Natal is going to flop. How the F*** is the 360 adapter "superior" it costs 120 bucks AUD, a normal wireless adapter with double the range for my PC is 30. Ok happy?
is yesterdays news. The PS3 - LBP and Ratchet and Clank for $299.99. Microsoft can't beat that deal! It is quite obvious - the PS3 is back on top and there aint nuthin you botty boys can do to stop this midnight train!!! Uncharted 2 GOTY, Best FPS - Killzone 2, best sandbox game - InFamous, Best baseball game - MLB the Show, best RPG - Demons Souls!
Runs and sells PS3 buys Xbox 360 Elite.....
who is then immediately locked away and judged leaglly insane
just have both, I bought a xbox 2 months ago, and I usually sign onto live every 4-5 days or so, mostly to play 1 vs 100, even though I have Halo ODST and Saints Row 2 which I'm borrowing from a friend
"runs out wih 360,360 blows up in face,crys,goes back inside,asks for refund,guy kicks him in balls for bieng a dumbass" ^^ must of ben one hell of a day for you huh Jijoro LOL HAHAHAHAHAAAA
Will black friday numbers be released? Funny, Microsoft hasn't said anything. Must've seen the numbers and knew they were outsold 2:1 =]
is sony websites yapping about sales, haven't seen an official number or an official statement from sony or microsoft. How many bundles did sony ship? nobody knows, so nobody knows how many sold. So please everyone STFU until some solid numbers come out.
Last year MS was touting its Black Friday win Saturday morning! They don't have nothing to say this year. That says a lot!
That is all.
Sorry fellas but making RROD jokes ain't gonna cut it I'm not buying my PS3 back Jijoro is right buy a 360 :) EDIT: I said PS3 was better because I was a blind delusional droid but Jijoro made me see and the truth was spoken.
"PS3 is better" Well you said it yourself I like how you keep wasting your time commenting though >_>
of the elite.. LMAO1!!1!
for $49.99. That's it. I won't buy it for $100. Hell NAW!
I wouldn't buy a 360 at all why waste that much money on a game console just to send it back to microsoft to get fixed? which takes about a month When I buy a game console I buy it because I want to play great games which Sony is famous for just look at the past, present, and upcoming games that have/will release on the Sony consoles
fanboyism a side, the PS3 is coming in strong this year
fanboyism aside, I can't understand why someone would buy an xbox.
because of the games. Durrh?
fanboyism aside, cos it's crap
but Mass Effect, Gears and Splinter Cell are the "ish", to use a similar meme. It just can't be my primary console and be that unreliable.
about PS3 killing the competition. It is like these articles that are popping up left and right are use for PS3 fanboys support group therapy. Just wait for Hippopgamer version of "PS3 will Sell more than the Bible this Holiday" I thought sales don't matter from last year's result. LOL
Welcome to N4G.
You mean BPSB4G (Biased Playstation Blogs for Gamers)
console sales have always mattered to the fanboys like yourself. The difference is 360 fanboys think sales make a game good. Having said that, ps3 fanboys will do the same thing and bash forza3 when gt5 hits no doubt. I wouldn't cry about a few positive ps3 articles though, you've had years of media hate toward sony to chug over.
The PS3 was a sinking ship...Sony gets all the credit for turning it around. In my opinion it's an even more impressive feat than their domination with the PS2 last gen. They made a massive miscalculation with the launch price and lineup but they turned it around. The huge investments in their first/second party studios seem to be paying off. They deserve every bit of success they get. Sales are the most important thing in business. Now, that being said, if MW2 ends up with more lifetime sales on the PS3 than Uncharted 2 I'm going to personally punch every PS3 fanboy that I see in the face.
3rd fastest selling console = a sinking ship....what are they teaching these kids nowadays because it sure isnt logic and foresight. Have i ever heard you call the 360 a sinking ship.......................... ............................... ............................... ............................... .....? i wonder why that is
And the battle of the fanboys continue....
After the barrage of PS3 hate articles that have come through this site, it is almost totally insane that you guys would say something like that! It's like forgetting yesterday... just yesterday practically! It's like being so blind you can't see the Sun! Off topic: While typing this I saw the commercial for the new FF13 song. That $hit is crap! Can't believe they're gonna use that crap in the game.
and there OFF! sony is pulling up neck an neck to wii follow by 360 limping at a time M$ said it has full steam. oops folks there go a blown gasket (RROD) follow by blown fuel pump (E74) around lap 1 ps3 an wii still neck an neck for holiday sales. WHATS THAT I HEAR IN THE BACKGROUND?? (pssssssssssst) 360 radiator exploded ( over heats) the whole house burns down gamers coughing everywhere trying to servive 360's heatsink explosion. like a good neighbor state farm is NOT there 360 is not covered LOL
That was freakin' funny dude
And with GT/GoW still to drop, it's gonna blow up. Like the article says, all those MGS4 that got sold are people coming to the darkside for the first time. Once they finish that masterpiece, it's gonna dawn on them that that game is 2+ years old and if that's what the system was pushing out then, the newer games would have to be insane. They will rush to buy KZ2, UC2, R/C and LPB (especially the ones with kids) Infamous and never look back. Oh, and add a dash of watching The Dark Knight in BluRay for the first time.....SOLD!
PS3 will murder the charts this holiday with its new cheap price tag..
They're 6 Xbox 360 games in the Top 20 and their are ZERO ps3 games in the top 20. Can you say bluray player???? :) So many blogs and fanboy sites these days. :/
lol show me 6 xbox 360 exclusives from 2009. No multiplats please because L4D2 is superior on pc. You and your pathetic excuses are amusing, keep complaining :D
WHAT! THE! F*CK!?? WHAT 6 games? WHAT chart? WHAT top 20? WHAT are you smoking?
lol care to explain why there is more ps3 games in the top 50 on amazon then? Sony-9 ps3 games, both 120g and 250 gig consoles Microsoft-8 360 games and a xbox live card<-- lol oh and uncharted 2 is at number 5 btw
Halo3 MLG Pro Step aside, now its the ps3s turn, you have the the days.
I got my PS3 slim with the Batman: AA and Dark knight BR movie. ALSO, I got inFAMOUS..and I had never played it before......THIS GAME IS SICK! I made my PS3 op 5 list on another N4g post, and would like to revise my top 5 PS3 games of 09: 1. Uncharted 2 2. inFAMOUS 3. Demon Soul 4. Killzone 2 5. Batman: AA @@@ would have put MW 2 on here, but there was too much camping in MP.
