PS3 Off To A Fast Holiday Start

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.

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...

silvacrest3305d ago

the PS3 was released november 11 2006 so unless my math is wrong somehow, its 3 years

DJ Pillz 3173305d ago

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.

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.

Actually both are right.

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

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

DJ Pillz 3173305d ago

What's so great about sales? I guess the Wii is the best console this generation

Sarcasm3305d ago

"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.

skatezero2463305d ago

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 ....

xaviertooth3305d ago

i was thinking of winter... people did not buy a heater? strange.

skatezero2463305d ago

lol that was great made me lol bubbles for you

PS3= It only does everything

TheTruth20093305d ago

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?

TheTruth20093305d ago

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!
