"Damn the 360 is about 5 mill ahead from being 3rd place"

aint it used to be 8 or 9 because of that head year start ??

LOL, seriously Wxer. It's OKAY. You don't have to counter every pro-360 statement. Relax..we know the 360 is losing steam but its STILL in second place in North America. Why don't we talk about how the PS3 won Black Friday and STILL lost to the 360 in North America in November? Its like you don't even try to hide the fact that your a fanboy, almost as if you think its OKAY to be a fanboy.

Yeah 360 had a one year head start, but didn't Sony have 10 years of dominance in the gaming industry before the 360 came out? What happened to all those "loyal" Sony fans from the PS1 and PS2 days? Why aren't they buying PS3s?

Lifendz2852d ago

Well, in one year Sony cut that lead down to 5. By next year we could be talking a mere one million unit lead if that.

And I don't count the Wii. The Wii is in its own category.

You do know the ps3 has been selling faster than the 360 right ? and did the 360 start at 700 bucks ? and I think you forgot about the economic crisis? You only have to see the ps3 sales # when it had the price cut to know a lot of people were waiting for it to cost less. Think b4 you post plz.

True_Religion2852d ago

rofl wexr

the 360 was at 6 Million after its st year, not 9, fool.

So it took right now 3 years for Sony to make 1 Million good.

Skip_Bayless2852d ago

To clear things up, Microsoft shipped 8-10 million into stores and they sold around 6.5 million to customers. And the Wii doesn't count. Do you count the DS or PSP in this generation? No.

doG_beLIEfs2852d ago

Hey Madden, can u use your tellestrator to describe the monumental amount of consoles MS stuffed the channel with to get to that 10M sold mark? Describe in detail how a paultry 1.5M consoles were delivered in the next 2 quarters and don't forget to include how MS execs. made the excuse of manufacturing delays.

And I agree with you on the Wii not being a part of this generation. I don't care if it released in the same time frame, it still has the guts of a GC and it is still bested by the PS2 as far as graphics go and it still looks like azz on my HDTV.

1. Yes, I know the PS3 has been selling faster than the 360 and its STILL in 3rd place in North America.

2. No the 360 did NOT start at 700 bucks cause if it did it would been a failiure lol.

3. Economic crisis? Lol, the American economy is sooo bad that people STILL prefer to be pay $50 a year for XBL, deal with RROD, and pay an extra $100 for Wi-fi. The PS3 Slim offers the BEST value in home entertainment history(Free online, built in Wi-fi, built in Blu-ray player, rechargable controller, more energy efficient that the 360, more reliable than the 360, the highest rated exclusives around, Playstation Home, game sharing, unlimited amount of friends, and an Internet Browser) and even in this economic crisis the 360 is STILL winning out.

4. 360 had their WORST year ever and STILL outsold the PS3 in NA when PS3 had a price drop and Uncharted 2, Demon Souls, Infamous, and KZ2(my goty). How will 2010 be any different when the 360 ACTUALLY has games and gets yet another price drop?

rezenu2852d ago

Wow, just wow.

That's all I have to say about your rants.

SilentNegotiator2852d ago

The PS3 hit 11 million, as they predicted, increasing by 6.5% in market share, and decreasing the gap from 8.5 million to 5.7 million.

And the 360, a couple months ago claimed to be "the only console to grow" this year sold about 2 million less than last year.

gaffyh2852d ago

@above - The amount of time MS has blatantly lied to everyone this gen is unbelievable. I can understand their marketing strategies to create misconceptions to consumers in order to sell stuff e.g. Halo Wars, Xbox 360 Arcade. But they lie so much in their PR bullsh*t that it's not funny.

sikbeta2852d ago (Edited 2852d ago )

lol guy, this all you got, the only thing that was helping the x360 was THE PRICE, you don't see what's happening NOW that the PS3 is $300 or you don't want to see it?

1.That's cuz it has 1 year less in the market than the x360, if both launched in the same time you could see the difference, but you can't do that, or is too difficult for you?

2.SONY is capable to make a HIGH Price PS3 Console and still sell better than another CHEAP Console with a YEAR HEAD START, if this doesn't say anything to you, man you're LOST

"3.1: Economic crisis? Lol, the American economy is sooo bad that people STILL prefer to be pay $50 a year for XBL,

The American People HAVE NO CHOICE if they want to PLAY ON-LINE

"3.2: deal with RROD, and pay an extra $100 for Wi-fi.

If people bought a x360 and get teh RROD, they'll not throw to the window (IRONY lol) and say, "hey, nothing happened here, I'll buy another Console because I wipe my @$$ with money", M$ offer the 3 Year Warranty and a Gold card to play on-line, you really believe people don't want their console to get fixed?

"3.3: The PS3 Slim offers the BEST value in home entertainment history(Free online, built in Wi-fi, built in Blu-ray player, rechargable controller, more energy efficient that the 360, more reliable than the 360, the highest rated exclusives around, Playstation Home, game sharing, unlimited amount of friends, and an Internet Browser) and even in this economic crisis the 360 is STILL winning out"

We all know the PS3 offer the best but at the beginning Average Joes didn't going to buy a $600 Console just because it give you the best, since they only look at the PRICE, now that the PS3 has an Affordable Price is selling Amazingly, your console of choice is not winning, is only that is has more time in the market than the PS3 and even with that advantage couldn't sell the way The PS3 is doing

4.SO?, Playstation Flagship titles are The Gran Turismo Series, GT5 will be released on March and VARIETY is a KEY on PS Consoles, there isn't any priority over 1 genre as you can see

You truly believe that HUGE games sales are important?

People buy PS Consoles and then find the Game they like, not just buy the console cuz it has A game they want to play, that's the WHOLE point about VARIETY
