People are always saying how Sony is in trouble and how Sony is losing money, market share and the what not. As (partially) true as those things are, it has become apparent to me that Sony may have some things up its sleeve.
Whiles many gamers make fun and criticize them because we think they are loosing money, we really dont know whats going on in terms of their finances.
True that. But we can still see PS3's sitting on store shelves, and this is enough for us to assume that they aren't where they predicted they'd be.
Maybe Killzone can bail them out. We'll see in a couple weeks. If Killzone doesn't sh1t on everything before it, the backlash it createswill cut Sony's head off. Hopefully for their sake Guerilla didn't spend the $20 mil on hash!
EDIT @ CrazzyMan: That's good. I was starting to fear for PS3 owners that it would take a bare min of 100 dev's plus a budget that could feed a small country in order to make a game thats worth it's salt.
EDIT @ Kyur4ThePAIN: I don't really need to write down serial numbers. We all know they aren't moving man. You should spend more time understanding the point of the comment, rather than trying to find faults in my logic.
"Sony said the one thing they will not allow to happen is for stock to run low / out."
-It doesn't matter, consumers made the decision themselves. They chose not to buy it, therefore Sony doesn't need to worry about re-stocking.
"Put it this way...if I was able to find a Wii a few months ago, I would have bought one. I couldn't find it anywhere.......THAT's a bad thing."
-So your saying that it's a bad thing for a corporation not to be able to keep their product on store shelves long enough? I understand the fact that they weren't able to get YOUR business, but I don't think they really care they didn't get your business since they got everyone else's. Your logic really doesn't make sense. You were trying to pick apart my arguement and you came at me with some really lame sauce.
That line is so old. Do you go and write down serial numbers each day and then go back to see if the same ones are still there?
The Toyota dealership near me has hundreds of cars on the lot.
They must REALLY be in trouble.
Sony said the one thing they will not allow to happen is for stock to run low / out. I really don't see why you see that as a bad thing.
Put it this way...if I was able to find a Wii a few months ago, I would have bought one. I couldn't find it anywhere.
Now that I've played on a friend's, I am not interested in it anymore.
Nintendo lost a sale, and who knows how many others because the thing was nowhere to be found. THAT's a bad thing. Being able to find what I want to buy easily is a good thing.
So, what you're saying is that if Sony / MS / Nintendo decided to produce 15 consoles a month, and you never saw any in stores, that would be better?
Tell, me...why are the PS3 sales numbers lower than the 360's? It's more expensive and has fewer games atm.
And it's lower than the Wii's numbers because it costs more than twice as much.
Absolutely no surprise there. And I'm pretty sure Sony isn't all that surprised either.
Is it lower than what Sony expected? I don't know, I don't know anyone who works there so I can't ask them.
Does anyone expect the sales numbers to remain at their current level?
I doubt it. So the whole thing with "PS3s on store shelves" is temporary.
"consumers made the decision"
Look at the number of sales since the launch of each console.
Take the numbers and multiply by the street price.
Guess which console has seen more money?
And don't say it's because there was a shortage at launch...that's exactly my point. If they aren't in the stores, you can't sell them.
It's really hot today, so I'm going to assume it's going to be this hot on December 17th.
has had the same 2 battered PS3 boxes on the shelves since launch day! And the manager has admitted they haven't sold a single 1!
If you want to talk money, the Xbox division of Microsoft has been in the negative since they've opened the doors. They have never turned a profit as a whole ever! Look it up, you'll see it. As for the PS3 being bailed out, the system doesn't have one game or need one. Thats the beauty of it, there are a ton of new and different games that are coming soon NOT just FPS's. The system is doing fine and will be doing alot better this fall.
thats the reasoning of an educated man. and not a blasted fanboi... bubble for you. i couldn't have said it any better my self
here in small Sweden I had to go to 4 stores to find my PS3 and I have a feeling it´s not that different in the rest of Europe. Mediamarkt, a huge German electronics store, had just run out when I got there saying all shipments disappeared as soon as they came in.
BTW: when I called to preorder the 360 at EBGames about a month before the release date (2005?) the guy on the phone almost laughed at me saying there´s no need to preorder.
day by day, especially after E3 will come more PS3 positive articles. :)
p.s. nobizlikesnowbiz - just look at Uncharted, the game is not been developed by over 120 developers, didn`t surpass 20 mln. euro budget (as far as i know) and grpahics looks amazing!
Well it was a gamble for Sony to bring in the PS3 with the Blu-ray but they weren't never in trouble because Sony is big and with Blu-ray Sony with there movie corps will be backing that up and helping the Blu-ray...remember they don't just make the franchise call Playstation...but yea they r losing money from the Ps3 but in return they will soon pick up :)
Just Sony this time round underestimate this gen but will soon pick back up where Sony wants it to be soon enough
That'll be the start for wonders to come....
And not just North America...once Hot Shots Golf 5 comes out bundled with PS3 in Japan, sales are gonna go up there. First Japan, then the other countries
*edit* lol @ disagree...look at the history of successful consoles, then come back and read what i said
"People are always saying how Sony is in trouble and how Sony is losing money..."
People = flamers
Why exacly do people think Sony is in trouble? They have bottomless pockets and are selling their systems at a loss, hoping the game sales with be the money makers (hasn't really happened yet, but fall '07 looks good). If you bring up the fact that sales of the system are low (@nobizlikesnowbiz), then by your laws of deduction, Sony is loosing less money buy selling less consoles.
they say Sony is it trouble because of Ps3 and that is just really silly...because Sony is big in terms of money/market
Ps3 won't be in trouble at all unless Sony decides to scrape the Playstation franchise(doubt it)...It's the Playstation we talking about which Sony obversely wants to keep because of the regonition
with this sentence
"They have bottomless pockets and are selling their systems at a loss",
-I think you got Sony and MS mixed up.
Yeah, it has been rough for Sony, and we all know what they need to do. It's safe to say Sony fans that actually own the console can only be optimistic.(I would hope)
As for me, I would like to see:
2.Bigger, better game library
3.Firmware up to par(like giving users at least the simple sh!t, that was available on XBL out the gates.)
4.Don't care for HOME(just wanna play games)
We'll see, in like a year. For now I'll be satisfied till spring 2008.
Thanks for agreeing with most of my comment, but I dont see how you can disagree with that one. Not that I am anal about everyone agreeing with me, but isnt
a) Sony a large company that has extensive funds and can afford to invest into somethign that will only pay off long term
b) Sony is/was selling ps3s at a loss.
Its funny, i thought that this was the only factually correct thing in my post.
Hardware: one time loss
Software: multiple times gain
I'll play (DA)
If the Hardware doesn't sell - multiple developers lost
If there is not much software- big time installment-base Lost
Sony knows what thier doing
I'd be worrying. You say Sony knows what they are doing. This implies that they intended to be competing with N64's and GBA's?
"Sony knows what thier doing"
That made me laugh.
@11: That's all they really ever cared about.
@21: I'd rather have pu55y then balls, but thats just me.
What you choose to play with in your spare time is not my business.
The one thing we all can agree on that Sony doesn't have, is games!
Laughing At Lemmings.
When you have to make an article stating that your NOT in trouble.
EDIT: haha I lost a bubble for this comment. You Sony fanboys are asshats! You people are so serious about a game machine.. Makes me wonder what kinda freaks you are in real life..
@Snake_Doctor: What are you talking about?? Is your comment related to the Xbox 360? Are you going to twist this into a fanboy sissy fight like every other article here? What particular instance are you referring to? I know Sony did not make this comment, but the very fact that there needs to be an article written by anyone that "Hey Sony isn't in trouble" seems to indicate that public perception is the opposite.
My comment I guess was taken more serious than I wanted it to be.. I've said it many times here that Sony is doing fine.. They certainly aren't going out of business or getting out of the console market.
but Sony didn't make this article,
I'll grant your comment may be somewhat correct but how about this one...
How do you know there is a problem with your console's Quality? When a game dev has to explain hardware failures are not a SOFTWARE related issue.
Sony is set to gain a LARGE profit with the adoption of Blu-ray. It was a big gamble, but it seems it will payoff after all.
This same guy is a member at PS3forums.com, all he used to do was pose like he was neutral (but secretly loves the xbox). Now he's changed his name and is claiming to see the light. Now I know for sure you can be a nobody and have your rantings posted on gamers-creed.com as news. Nothing against PXG>
these xbots like noBizLikesnowbiz, and razer. They actually think that they know how to run a company. Telling us, "they would be worried". Like Sony, which is a multi-billion dollar company, doesnt know waht tehy are doing. They have movie, electronics, tv, computers, games, EVERYTHING. but Razer, and NOBIZLIKESNOWBIZ, are on a gamming website, thinking they are highly skilled business men. You guys are a joke. You are on a GAMING WEBSITE, and looking at your expereince by going to a few stores and seeing PS3 on the shelf. Listen, go back to McDonalds, and flip those burgers, people are waiting.
@NoBizLikeSnowBiz: Give me 1 example or 1 comment that i wrote that said the 360 will fail. Just 1 comment, that said the 360 will fail. You once again proved my point, that you are a complete moron. If you're studying structural engineering, I feel sorry for the people that might one day have to go over a bridge that you helped design.
how ironic, you say I cant formulate a simple sentence. This is how you put it: "Someone who like you who can't formulate a simple sentence"
It seems like YOU are the one that cant formulate a simple sentence KID.
GO and study how to reinforce concrete, and try to make a bridge.
Tekken is AWESOME, WTF you tlakin about, just because you probably suck at it. You probably think DOA is the best fighting game ever.
You do a good job of predicting the Xbox360 will fail, without giving a single string of coherent thoughts.
Then you turn around and pull some hypocritical sh1t like that. It's an opinion. Everyone's got one on this site. Get used to it.
I'm not a businessman. I'm studying structural engineering, and I work for a civil engineer. I'm 19 years old and I'm typing this from MY OFFICE. Someone who like you who can't formulate a simple sentence shouldn't be talking to me about flipping burgers, since it's probably your profession.
EDIT @ wannabe Tekken character: I'm sorry my statement was a little flawed. But just because you never said it directly doesn't mean that every comment you make doesn't stink with fanboy loathing towards a console.
EDIT some more at Jin(Tekken sucks btw): Do you even think before you comment? All of those sentences were structured correctly I beleive. I was referring to the POINT of the sentence. Wow. Congrats, you've proved how dumb you are.
EDIT again: Ever heard of VF?
WHY? Hardware, europe are getting sick of the broken 360's.. Just like theMART says the xbox 360 is still selling more in europe than the PS3. With that you have to think how many of them 360's are breaking down within the first 6 months... I wonder - ALOT. Europe are not like America where they will keep buying 360's so they can play Gears of war and all the other good games the 360 has to offer. I'm not talking about everyone but most people in europe will only let it happen once and then buy a different console. I admit that i am a sonybot now? but i did have a 360 about 5 months ago and i was addicted to GOW, i had the damn thing for 2 weeks and it got Red light syndrome... I gave up on Microsoft and went back to the company i started with, Sony.
"The 360 will fail." No, it won't. And I doubt the PS3 will either.
I guess coexistence is utterly out of the question for consoles.
fankids must not want console to coexist at all... it's funny really. if it wasn't for MS sony wouldn't have gone this way with it's PSN effort. personally withh all what this consoles bring to the table i just dont see why people cant be happy with there purchace and choice of entertainment. instead of all this ridiculous banter of which console is superior.. MS and Sony and Nintendo are all multi-billion dollar companies and are very effective at what they do. in all honesty if any one of them should fail the industry would be in serious trouble. alot of the extremist fankids like mart cant seem to understand the importance of choice. it's all apart of balance, and with out it the world will be boring. and the inustry would never move forward. it's funny how the very companies you all love seem to not think in the same way all you fankids seem to think.
but as a whole Sony corporation is turning a profit thanks to the turnaround in the electronics division.
SCEI during the PS2 heyday was contributing 60% to sony's net income. I'm sure it will begin to turn around again starting this holiday season.
Everything in Sony's first party remaining 2007 lineup would have to flop for the games division to be in serious trouble. I don't see that happening. We're at 3.5 million ps3's, the psp is hitting its stride and the ps2 is still going strong.
Ratchet and Clank will have kids screaming for ps3's this xmas, eye of judgement will be the pokemon killer right there behind it, not to mention home, drakes fortune, and all the rest. The ps3 will have a much broader appeal than it currently has (notice i'm not comparing it to any other machine).
I kind of doubt they will drop the price before 2008 but you never know.
the flaw with this article is that hes assuming the retailers are selling the systems at there cost.
When in reality the system is sold by Sony at a cheaper price to the retailers.
I believe its somewhere in the 20% for consoles. Which means companies are buying them at a $160 discount in North America (Assuming my numbers are correct the whole sale cost may actually be higher)
So lets say it cost Sony $700 American to make a console (articles rough estimate not mine) they are losing 160 a console.
Let alone that most stores (i will speak only about Miami Fl right now since its where I live) still have stacks of consoles in their store. Which means these stores really would not be ordering more till they sell or get to there reorder point (Whatever it may be).
So while Sony is cranking out system after system these that are not being re-ordered are just sitting in the warehouses waiting to be purchased. Which means a lose of 700 per system not sold.
However if the systems are made to order (meaning a company says i need 20 ps3 so sony makes those 20 not go into there warehouse and grabs 20).
In the end they are still losing money. How much is depended on there situation of course. But if im correct (which i will not say I am)
they are losing money in large amounts left and right when it comes to the ps3 the ps2 is a different matter altogether.
Its only one flaw but its the flaw which ruins this article lol Excellent point you make.
The person writing the article doesn't have any idea what he's talking about. He makes comments like "No one really knows for sure" but, yet he comes up with this "shooting from the hip" type of conclusion. The facts are this - when Killzone 2, MGS4, and FFXIII hit the stores and throw a price drop on top of that...Sony will be kicking some major @SS!
I just don't get why everyone is soooo worried about Sony. Who cares if they got off to a slow start and who cares if they never catch up to the 360. If the 360 sells 100 million and the PS3 sells 99 million - who cares. There is room for everyone to be successful. Each consoles has it's goods and bads;) Hell....GET THEM ALL!!
This is the early PS2 doom an gloom talk all over again. Even EGM stated once that the number one seller on the PS2 was Enter the Matrix. Some claimed sony is hurting there hardware devision with the PS2's DVD playback out of the box. Yet in about a year or so all the crap talkin stopped. I hear alot of simular things this gen so i rather observe an come to my own conclusion and thus far it's way too early draw your conclusion i mean come on most of the system sellers are still in development. GT5, FF13, MGS4, Socom etc.
Journalists have to write about something, and it is usually negative stuff that draws crowed. People like to see others fail, it's what gives them satisfaction and feeling that they are better. In short it's BS! After E3 i am 99.9% sure many will change their opinion on Sony
For the ps2, Sony was facing a Noob MS and an out of touch Nintendo.
Last gen Ps2 had all of the exclusives. A gamer had no choice but to buy a ps2. It was the lowest denominator so all games were built for it. The mind blowing hype about what the ps2 could do buried the DC.
This time, Sony is facing a smarter, hungrier MS and a Nintendo that has finally gotten back on the right track. The hype train for the ps3 started strong but due to Sony's missteps quickly got derailed. The price of the ps2 was also comparable to the price of the xbox.
PS2 did not sell for 599.99
I think the ps3 will be afailur until it reaches 199.99. At that point ms will be moving on to a new console and the ps3 will be going strong. MS' new console will fail and the ps3 will have a long life cycle.
I think you forget that the PS2 was a direct competitor to the Dreamcast 1'st then Xbox and Gamecube. The Dreamcast was easier to develope for it was cheaper US$199 compared to PS2's US$299. Which many claimed was too expensive an it didnt have any games worth playin. Thus many claimed it was just a DVD player. The Dreamcast had an extremely strong software library and line up to come.
The PS2 came out with basically crap (Fantavision anyone?) the ports of the Dreamcast games where generally less impressive. Dead or Alive hardcore i think was one of them that looked kindda washed out on the PS2 compared to the Dreamcast.
Another thing if you say Nintendo was "Out of touch" then with the Gamecube then what exactly is it about the Wii that makes you think they have regain focus? The Wii is a total departure from the traditional gamer target market so in my opinion the Wii would be more of an idication of Nintendo being out of touch than the Gamecube. Thats just my opinion though, you don't have to agree.
My point is even though Microsoft is better poised this gen it shouldn't be any reason for us to be so quick to jump to a conclusion. If one knows anything about the gamin industry or even the Playstation brand itself they would know that Sony isn't out.
The issue of games an price won't be an issue for much longer an we all know this. I just find it amusing that some wish so hard for Sony to fail it's wonder they don't wet themselves.
PS3 can't fail, it just can't. Brand name PLAYSTATION means so much in gaming. And lets be honest Sony has BEST first party and second party on it's side. I do agree that 360 is ahead in 3rd party but Sony still has a few major 3rd party on its side. Square Enix and game like MGS4.
Once big games start rolling out on system i will buy it, wright not i don't see the reason to waste 850$(here in EU) on Motorstorm and Resistance. I can still wait and hope that price cut will come.
Like Nintendo once felt to 3rd place when they were nr. 1?
That kind of big name?
It can happen, even to your beloved Playstation
This is OPINION for Fa6boys not 'NEWS for gamers'!!! WT...F!
Next we'll see SPECULATIVE articles on how PS3 is actually beating Nintendo in hardware sales.
Then you have a bunch of Bubble Stealers (on both sides-but seemingly more Sony fans) running around stealing bubbles cause they didn't like what you said 3 weeks ago.
They should change the site to 'Propaganda for Fanboys', or P4F.
This site is reminding me of G4TV...a slow and painful death.
360 is still sitting on store too
MS got pyssu...and Nintendo got... Wii?
Sony got big balls...entering the console next-gen with unproven tech and showing amazing things with the cell and the blu-ray foremost of all.
Keyword is: power above all. To master it is another ballpark. So - Sony got balls-
One ball named Ken has already been castrated.
Everyone know what games are coming this holiday season, but you still have these xbots saying oh PS3 don't have any games. You tell me what specials games were out on the 360 last july. maybe 1 or 2 games and the rest were PS2 ports, I have both systems and it bothers me when the inferior system trys to even itself out. The PS3 is the better hardware and I'm glad they added blu ray, wifi, bluetooth. That saved me alot of money. M$ is nickel and diming you to death. M$ wireless headset is $60 but i'm using my cellphone bluetooth headset free, wifi is great especially since my ps3 is in the living room I don't have to spend $100 on a wifi. Blu ray is great I can order or go to blockbuster and rent blu ray movies instead of spending $200 on an addon. Oh and the online service is free. The PS3 is the better deal and the most powerful and the games that I want this holiday season are on the PS3..Halo1 was great but since then it's an average game that is so overhype. Halo3 graphic sux but yet these xbots defend it. I can't wait til E3 so Sony can shut this biaaaaches up
Xb360 got alot to go for it. But it's proven and not inovative in any way. It's just upgraded. Not to be a trekkie but: Sony goes where no one else has gone before. Someone has to make the big step to make the rest follow step if successfull. MS is not that kind of company. Sure bets is their moto.
I just hope Ken was that genious he outmastered the competition, because of this PS3 platform, we have a masterpiece in HW. We'll see....We'll see
The calculations are WAY out. £425 does not equal $902. It's $852. And in that £425 is 17.5% tax. That equals £350 for each console (as long as its not sold as a deal. Some places are doing them at £375 which would mean that the tax off price is $309. But lets be good and give them the £350. In dollars that is $702. So that is still a $133 loss.
But, lets be honest, unless you are a sony shareholder or a real, real sad fanboy, who gives a flying fcuk?
Can the PS3 prove that is a solid console 1st please. If Sony could find a way to get people to buy games profit would not be an issue.
Do you know about the concept of developingtime? You cannot make a mod to quake to be successfull.
New highress textures
and.....not to forget
You are too eager to judge a platform unprooven yet by the 1st party devs of said platform - the PS3.
What's so special about the XB 360 may I ask?
What are you talking about. I'm not downing Sony. I'm just saying Why worry about money and losses. Give US gamers a reason to buy your games and you will not have to worry about loosing cash because of royalties from games sells.
Jeezzz MAN get off my [email protected]
Deja vu anyone? Just lately there has been some good PS3 news building up to E3 2007 where it will no doubt explode! Much to the joy of playstation nation - What my point is, is that this seems to happen with every passing console generation since playstation started out. It's like a pattern, each of PS1, and PS2 launches started off slow. Then after they're launches the good news built up, eventually leading to PS1 and PS2's dominant success and if you look around you should notice that this pattern is forming again with PS3 as we speak! So it goes without saying from here on in - this should be VERY interesting. What could it mean if Playstation wins again?
they are not making profit1!?!? wtf don't people think of labor, logistics, etc... and the stores need to make money off it too!!!
Sony is a hardware GIANT!!
There not in trouble, its the PS3 thats in trouble. People think because the PS3 is not doing so well, that Sony is going out of business. Not true.
Even if the PS3 were to fail miserably, Sony could still make profits that year, from other departments.
People are stupid.
I disagree that about Sony NOT being at risk, but the oxymoron of what you said Sony NOT being at risk is, because of that people ARE stupid...so there, I said it.
its that simple - SONY is on top and ppl hate for that...sony is nowhere in trouble - just couple of mnths ago their shares have reached a new record in 5 years as in MS shares - shareholders arent pleased with MS period
not only will the PS3 start to pick up big time sales by aug/sept with all the games etc etc...but the new line of bravia LCD XBR4 and XBR5 will also hit and lets face it bravias are cleaning house
Kthepain & crazyman - gave u bubbles - we sony fans should stick together - as the only ppl that take our bubbles away are stupid [email protected]
sad isnt it
Sony is going to blow everyone away this holiday season. The way I see it is Halo2.5 against lair, Heavenly sword, socom,warhawk, uncharted and just maybe Killzone2 which will top anything for the next few years. After january I wonder if xbots will still say that the PS3 is a $600 paper weight. and just so you'll know socom online has a bigger fanbase than halo multiplayer it's just halo is overhype.
What kind of mambo jambo journalist wrote this?
"This is what I am getting at:
The PS3, nowadays, might cost around $700.00 or so. No one really knows, but this is just an estimate. The PS3 is $810.89 (when converted from Euros to USD) and $902.04 (when converted from Pounds to USD). If the PS3 is manufactered at a cost, somewhere in the $700.00 range, then Sony is ACTUALLY turning a profit in Europe.*"
He is assuming it MIGHT cost some price and starts accounting on that. Pure guessing. THe rest of the article also is also with no facts backed up.
Really. It is total guessing. My guess:
Sony still looses on the PS3. We all know MS is making money on the 360 since the beginning of this year and will make more when the 65nm GPU/CPU is integrated in fall.
it's not over until it's over.
What is it finally going to take for you to realize what a failure the PS3 is. Do you need another month’s sales figures??? It’s looking like sales for the PS3 will be around 60K this month. 60K!!!!!!!! This coming off the last two months at 72k and 82k!!!! Please tell me why if the PS3 is so great, why nobody is buying it.
And don’t give me that lame excuse to wait for the games because it’s the same excuse you guys used for MotorStorm….and what happened?????
And you foolish to be relying on new IP’s because besides us hardcore gamers, no mass market consumers knows anything about the game. Only games that can help our mass market games such as Madden and GTA. And guess what, those games are better on a better system that cost a lot less.
Stop thinking like a fanboy and you will realize why Sony is in TROUBLE!!!!
how many consoles did microsoft sell this time last year? and keep in mind xbox was released 4 month earlier (worldwide).. so if the ps3 is a failure I'm guessing so is xbox, at least that's what you say sales mean...
They're still on track with previous launches...they start off "in trouble" like all the media always thinks everytime they have a new launch, and then you blink your eyes and wonder why they overtake the competition. The competition is better no doubt...but PS3 being a failure and beaten by a cheaper system and a system that's had time to develop, it's way too early to announce winners until PS3 gets it's time. Resistance comes out and then Gears of War and Xbox is the winner already? If it was really fair, they should have compared Resistance to Perfect Dark Zero. YOU guys need to give up on saying Playstation is dead, people love to see winners lose..
Does the baby need a bottle?
Does the baby need a bandaid for his X3"fixme" to work again?
Does the baby need some money to get a PS3 because he can't play his Xbox 3"fixme"?
The ONLY system that continues to "FAIL" is the Xbox 3"fixme" over, over, over, over, and over again.
Down to one bubble Xbots so the gauntlets are OFF!
Fudging the truth. Only reason the PS3 WAS on track with other systems, including the PS2 was because they could not keep up with demand. The PS3 has been readily available since December!!!! (Funny how you guys always forget to mention that!!!!)
But another thing that arguement experation is over because by comparing the numbers starting in May those numbers are no longer favorable to the PS3. What are you going to say next month? And the month after that???
But as soon as you fall asleep you go into dreamland much like the sales of the PS3 which is just a dream and you wake up to reality to find the 360 still on top.
Will you F**ktards read the article!!!!! the reason he says the PS3 is not in trouble is because SONY are ripping everyone in Europe off!!!!!!!!!!
1 Euro is currently worth 1.34-5 dollars
1 Pound is currently worth 2.001 dollars
PS3 in North America $599
PS3 in Europe €599 (eg. $812)
PS3 in Britain £399 ....cheapest ( $802)
He not saying the PS3 is doing well hes just saying europe is being ripped off as usual!
Also that is the RRP by SCEI and the cheapest British one in 40 pounds below the RRP.
E3 is about 11 days away, how but you judge the system after E3 lol
What don't they get?, they know all three consoles will have much to show at E3 and one console cost $250, one console cost $300 and one console cost $600.
All the past Neo-Geo's and Sega CDs of the past generations were hyped up beyond belief and still died/failed.
I can still remember what my mother and my friends mothers were saying when we asked for Neo-Geo's They thought if was ridiculous(to say the least) and they went out of their ways to bargon shop other consoles that offer similar features and functions and tried to make us excited about the other cheaper choice and it worked.
Sorry but people are looking at vids like Ace Combat etc right now and spreading hype right now the masses are not aware of what Sony might do one to two years from now(or care).
People are tired of their Xbox 11 month working machine (if that). Gamestops are already getting people trying to trade those broke down machines...Let me guess..the MS team is going to ignore the "red ring" problems and complaints from consumers....I bet they'll do what they think always saves them..which is press the Halo news button and thinks everything is still fine...Cheez MS really knows how to wear things out until the wheels fall off. Let me guess they're going to pay $50 million for extra content on GTA ? I'm sure shareholders aren't too thrilled with the MS gaming division...MS won't be afraid to abandon there consumers like they did with the Xbox and now Xbox360 defect complaints.
