PSU: How Sony can sell millions more PS3s in the coming months

PSU: "Ever since Sony launched the PS3 Slim and dropped the price tag to $299 USD in September, it almost appears the console’s mystique has transformed into what it should be – a killer and affordable piece of hardware. Sure, it seems every month that the NPD Group releases sales figures we find Nintendo dominating the U.S. market, but it’s clear that since the PS3 Slim launched, Sony is making some headway."

Gran Turismo 5 and LittleBigPlanet 2 are 2 absolutely KILLER titles that will help ps3 sales rocket. That would usually be enough but then we have the Move coming and with it some genuinely good titles that make use of it. I'm really excited about Ape Escape. And IF sony cut the ps3's price at e3....it will go ballistic. And well on the way to being another 100 million selling console

Yeah, Gran Turismo 5 is gonna make the PS3 pop a boner. Lol

40% of GT fans that are buying Gran Turismo 5 don't own a PS3

sony will sell the most consoles by making the best games. man i cant wait for gran turismo 5!.

RageAgainstTheMShine2655d ago (Edited 2655d ago )

in the likes of Mario, Sonic, Pokemon, Zelda etc. Sony needs more games like these from Japan.

Little Big Planet 2 and the PlayStation Move are a great start!

Release the Kraken!

I mean the 2 new SKUs ^_^ already!

If they handle the advertisement right, LBP2 and GT5 could push the Ps3 FAR.

I doubt we'll see a PS3 price cut at E3. It is profitable again, so maybe, but I'm sure they'd like to take some profit. 299$ is very reasonable after all, and with titles like GT5 and The Last Guardian they're bound to sell a lot more consoles regardless of price.

I was just about to post the same thing. Sony really need to get more PS3s in stores.

lephunk2655d ago

i got 3 friends lookin to buy one right now and even Amazon is sold out...

Dellis2655d ago

Here is a better Idea

Drop the price to 199.99 for the slims

have PS3 Move be the main SKU from now on for 299.99

PotNoodle2655d ago

I think if Sony are serious about Playstation move, they need to use any price cuts they can make to include Playstation move hardware and a game in with every single PS3 console sold.

History shows us peripherals sold separate don't generally succeed, or at least to the level of what Sony want. The same can be applied to Microsoft, and i think both Sony and MS realise this, i'm just not sure who will be in the best position to do such a thing as to package their motion control stuff in with every console sold in the future.

A sku with Ps Move will be much likely possible.

Tony-A2655d ago

A $200 Slim would mean Sony would lose $40 on every PS3 sold (according to latest figures).

They could, however, sell them for $250 and keep the sales strong along with a profit (even tho it would just be $10).
