Capcom Europe boss Mark Beaumont has warned that PlayStation 3 is lagging behind in the sales stakes - suggesting that it's software and not price which is the major factor
i don't thats true
mosty people wont buy ps3 because there is noo good games ..
and no one will spend 599 to just play resistance or motorstorm..
and most of the games that ps3 has are on 360 too and they look little better..
because 360 don't get stupid ports like PS3..
i bet you sales will pick up after heavenly sword,Lair,and more comes out.
plus Haze,UE3 are ps3 exclusive this year ..
I'd say it's both.
I'm stuck on price and so far no rumble.
I'm also stuck because no GT5 yet until 08'.
sony has acknowledged that it is both! but they are fixing both those problem and in a big way. if you havent noticed sony keeps insisting THAT THEY HAVE NOT DROPPED THE PRICE OF THE CONSOLE. they just introduced a new sku. lol. ok... so i can see a TRUE PRICE CUT happening before christmas. and they may even have the 65nm chips in by that time so it is very plausable.
by christmas ut3 will be out(timed exclusive), lair, warhawk,etc..
sorry for the doble post..
let's wait till this CHRISTMAS n See what happens.
It's funny when a company who ports ex-exclusives to other consoles starts talking about how games are hurting the Playstation 3.
Customers would be willing to pay a high price to have a lot of AAA games.
No flame, but you have to realize it is true bc time and time again I hear PS3 fans stating what great titles they are "waiting" for.....and then usually a list follows KZ2, MGS4, FF13, GT5, Heavenly Sword..etc. etc.
I realize these games are coming, just not out yet.
Says Capcom? The one who's been making multiplatform next-gen games, renounces exclusivity on certain games and refuses to port their 2 existing good 360 games to the PS3?
I tell him to cram it up his ass motherf*cker.
thats right f**k capcom
my friends are waiting for GTA4, MGS4 but they cant get enough of darkness and are really on the bubble now with the price cut.
I be leave once Lair,Heavenly Sword, UT3, Warhawk, Madden 8, Drake and assassin's creed come out this year sells will surge
And when MGS4, FFXIII, Tekken 5 RE5 and sony's new IP's come out next year most of the 112mill will be seen on the PSN and sony will be reign supreme again.
well.. look at the nintendo Wii... it's cheap as heck compared to the rest and it has less games worth playing than the PS3 at this moment. So price may be the determining factor. 600 dollars was just too much for a console period (to the mass). Even if the PS3 had all the xbox360 games it would still be losing to the wii in terms of hardware sales (ps3+360 sales are still not enough to overcome Wii sales ina weekly basis). Thats just how important price is.
The first year of a consoles life the hardcore gamers will jump in regardless of the price. IF the games are out people will pay what ever it cost as long as they are getting their money's worth. If the PS3 would of release today and had all the games that are out and coming it would sell like hotcakes and noone would ever complain. The reason PS3 got so many complains because it only had 2 exclusive titles and nothing but ports. Just look at amazon.com and several retailers are sold out. Why? because sony has finally shown us the games and they are coming within weeks. The wii is selling like hotcakes in japan, but it's only selling like 2-1 on the PS3 in the west. PS2 is still outselling the wii anywhere outside of Japan. The wii is expanding the japanese market, but anywhere else it's just the nintendo fans that had a gamecube and jumping onboard because it's only $250. The real games are still on the 360/PS3 and those gamers will never give up their games, just nintendo fanboys would never giveup the mario, zelda,and metroid(fps with no online multiplayer, and it's suppose to be revoluntionary). All I gotta say is, I'll take my online multiplayer any day over some gimicky control scheme.
it was the lack of games, but I believe everyone else is just refusing to pay half a grand or more on a video-game console.
Well honestly speaking, the man knows what hes talking about. Its a similiar case scenario for the x360.
mostly likely is the price..sony will get lots of exclusive game.capcom need to shut the fuk up..they should of at least put dmc4 time exclusive..
For the rest of the gaming world, Playstation is holy. The price is the ONLY deterrent. Look at how quickly they sold with just a 100 price drop.
first it was about the price .. sony dropped the price .. now it's about games. Duh !
It's just excuses for Capcom to justify their behaviour towards Sony, and making it seem as if Sony's doing extremely bad.
When a ship sinks, it's the rats who leave first. And now these rats are so bitter seeing the ship not sinking.
1 week ago, I used to agree with all the "not impressed with PS3" analysts/devs/company officials, but not now, not anymore. Price drop + Killzone 2 + Heavenly Sword + Lair + Gaiden Sigma + Metal Gear Solid 4 + the whole freaking list = no soup for Capcom.
all u have to do is invest a little ;)
Why invest in a sinking ship? It's almost like investing in a .com, very risky if it may not be around in the next couple years. This is Capcoms money your talking about, Do you thinks they realy want to risk losing any?
EDIT: below I said the PS3 is a sinking ship and it's not doing fine and you know it. If "Xbots" can accept the failure rates then you "Droids" need to accept that the PS3 is not doing great at all.
idt so.. sony is doin fine .. sailin?
Jason stop bieng a fanboy my 360 broke twice i got tired of waiting for it to comeback so i sold it when it cameback and iam saving for a ps3 the key word here is reliability!
