The latest weekly sales numbers show that it has reached another milestone, and that Sony has made great progress in closing the gap between PS3 and the Xbox 360.
we can't seem to do anything right, our shotty hardware and PS3 closing in on our RROD machine in sales we're a sad bunch at M$
120 GB HDD Blu-ray player Built-in wifi This console also brings the best exclusives games and also the most exclusive games on any console, pushing the boundaries of what was believed to be impossible, all for an affordable $299. How on earth is that even possible? I guess "It Only Does Everything"
Look at the difference in market share between PS2 and Xbox 1. Pretty impressive on Sony's part, right? Even if the PS3 surpasses the 360 in sales, which it probably will, look at the difference in market share now between the two companies. Exactly. I think MS did something right, which is close the market share gap. If the PS4 doesn't offer a new media format advantage over competitors like the PS 1-3 did, then there's a possibility that MS will gain even more ground next time around. MS is definitely headed in the right direction and to all those people hoping that MS leaves the industry, which seem to be a lot of you, don't hold your breath. On a separate note, the PS3 is doing exactly what I said it would do when it first came out, and that is have a rocky start, but eventually pick up steam as it gets closer to the magic $199 price point. The PS3's best days are ahead of it. It is the long distance runner in this race. Come to think of it, the 360's best days are still ahead too with Natal coming out and better graphics in games. I think the Wii's best days are behind it.
Just 5 million more and we'll be tied with the 360! At this rate, it shouldn't take long!!!
I remember in 2006 when people doubted the PS3 would even sell 10mill in it's life time.
The numbers are VGZ, so I ain't holding my breath, but still I feel that Sony has passed the 30 million mark due to the FF13 outburt in Japan... Man only 5 million behind the 360 lol and still GT5 and GOW3 in the pocket.. Those could really help in decreasing the lead..... Still a magnificent achievement for a once costliest console and destined for Doom....
I dont think GOW will move too many systems, people who played the past PS2 games will buy a PS3 for it but Im not expecting anything big. GT5 will be huge, though. Another game that I suspect will move systems is Agent. The 360 GTA crowd will want to eat that game up, and if Sony and Take 2 treat it like GTA, it'll definitely be something nig.
Same as this story really: http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N...
I do recall people saying it wont surpass the ps2. Last gen the games were cheap and the system was too. This gen it will take a little longer to get to the mass market price point on the games (under $50) and the hardware to reach that sweet spot (under $150). It will eventually which is why I am glad sony has their 10 year plan. I never heard people (even sarcastically) saying the ps3 will never sell X amount in its lifetime. I think you are over exaggerating...just a bit.
its only gonna get better from here on tbh he ps3 has yet to reach its peak
Can we evidence for that claim please ? Or anyone who agreed with him. I'm ready to bet that's 100% crap and nobody will bring any proof. Just the usual propaganda you guys blindly swallow up.
In one month the PS3 will cut the gap by one million. PS3 can easily tie 360's install base in one year. They just need to outsell the 360 on average 400,000 units every month to do that feat. Now the PS3 almost amounted to 400,000 units lead in one week.
the system was $600, if Sony never dropped the price PS3 would be a niche product Edit : mike going by VG chartz it appears that the PS3 closed the gap by 400K this week.
VG charts is a credible source. You are wrong if you say it isn't.
And the gap starts to creep towards 5 million. Dang, wasn't it like, 8 or 9 million just a couple months ago?
This is for you Haters, enjoy gaming and stop with the Hate As For the PS3 CREW, we made the right choice, so we're enjoying from the start and everything is getting better for us Gamers FTW!!!
there's no quote of someone saying "PS3 WON'T SELL 10 MILLION" BUT, there's plenty of hate to go around: http://seekingalpha.com/art... http://www.xbitlabs.com/new... --> read the comments http://www.xtremesystems.or... --> an example of the BS 360 fanboys pulled http://play.tm/news/12089/w... --> read comments.. Basically, 360 fanboys were as bad if not worste than PS3 fanboys are now However, just to make a point =) http://news.cnet.com/8301-1... >> suck on that for size ;)
Cold 2000 is very soar cause the PS3 is outselling the 360 worldwide & we don't need VGChartz to prove that.
I asked for proof of the crap Chubear said and with which you all seem to agree. And rather than bringing proof so as to show that you arent all that gullible, naive and stupid you reply with a completely off topic, childish and useless post that you took the time and effort to search the web for...You cant prove me wrong so you bring up something off topic. And by the way, arent you clever enough to know that for every link you posted right there I can bring up just as many ? I mean what was the use ? The agrees Chubear has just shows the profound stupidity and naivety of a lot of people on this site. @OmarJa: in case you didnt realize I haven't even posted anything concerning the article, which illustrates how "soar" I am lol.
Soon PS3 will outsell x360 LTD sales, well in 2010. =) @Cold 2000, you know what, you are supporting the loosing side. What the point? You will be hated on this site. It`s better for you and(lol) your bubbles, to stop posting in that way. x360 is done. Now it`s PS3 time. PS3 is going to have best games, of`course x360 also will get some good games in next few years, but x360 will be constantly outsold by PS3 for a long, long time. Atleast until Natal, and probably even after that too. I`m really looking forward to GT5 release. =))
"But, but, but, final fantasy 13 is PS3s FINAL chance" Did Microsoft lie to me again?
I respect your statement, but im pretty sure GOW3 will push systems out the door. there has been many...many people who are waiting for GOW3 to release just to get a PS3.
PS3 even launched in Europe MARCH 2007! lol 360 is teh doomed in 2010.
PS3 will be officially ahead of the 360 in terms of sales..
My guess is PS3>360 in LTD sales in summer 2011. Tee gap is 5.7 million so to beat the 360 by sep 2010 it would need to outsell it by over 600K a month! Believable if the whole year was the christmas period but isn't going to happen in the real world. The ps3 needs another christmas period before it finally takes second.
wow man, you got some serious anger issues =P its xmas and you stil going around butt hurt insulting people you don't even know on a web site's comments section =P and that wasn't hard to gather those links =) but the purpose was to back Chubears point that, maybe no one literally said "HAHA PS3 won't reach 10 million" BUT, there was a LOT of speculation as to its success, and my links prove that point. Don't try to be so "superior", you are no better than anyone here, "fighting" random people to try to get your skewed visions across and using offensive words and aggressive wording will just make you a bigger joke than you already seem to be. + remember, your also a member of this site, and a big fanboy at that, and therefore equally as stupid and naive as a lot of people on this site if you are to assume your opinion is right and others' are wrong because you say so ;)
The gap is nothing. PS3 WILL surpass the 360's sales before the end of next year.
I wonder how come cold 2000 get so serious XD
But wait a minute, isn't the PS3 doomed? I remembered years ago that the media said that Sony couldn't do it. Well done for the PS3. And somehow, that guy Cold2000 is having a meltdown. Dude, calm down, you'll get an ulcer or something, lol.
I don't know if I want to thank you or wish I've never saw some of those links. I remember when s... was that bad and the garbage the gaming media was on just made it worst. You 360 fanboys want to see why PS3 fanboys are nutszo? Refresh your memory and check 2 or 3 those Iinks. I'm gonna go throw up now.
We all knew this was going to happen...even 360 fanboys knew it was going to happen. Only a matter of time, and a matter of broken 360's was going to have everyone realize sony was going to make it.
PS3 is only 5.7m behind the Xbox 360...can we celebrate Christmas now? Get a life
Freaking loser. Living in the shadow of another...
