The PS3 isn't the only console with problems. Microsoft has an equal share of issues with the Xbox 360 that could prove just as harmful as Sony's. Here a six reasons why the Xbox 360 is in trouble, though not necessarily doomed.
Oh boy... this will be interesting.
Just note how it begins, first try to show PS3 as faulty box: "The PS3 isn't the only console with problems..." ???? then makes 360 as awsome but with few issues: "..Microsoft has an equal share of issues with the Xbox 360..." finaly returns again to PS3 making it as something bad (?): "...that could prove just as harmful as Sony's..." xbox 360 is going down ?? A: YES, proof is sales droped 61% as today news following MS reports. SO, to whom "manufactured" this text called article (THAMMER1 ?), one question; Are you beeing payed ??
Why is Thammer posting stories like this? very strange, for as, as far as i know, he is a 360 fanboy. Although i gotta say, he's what in politics we would call a "independent", he tends to swing 360 but will be more moderate about it than the average hardcore 360 fanboy. He tends to try and be fair, but often comes out with smart-a$$ remakes against the PS3. But who cares about that, let me tell you's about the hot a$$ betty i pulled today. I think im in love with that phat a$$ booty. Anyways, play on, playas What up T, Im going that way------> (or is it this way? <------- ) LOL!
i feel bad for those who have purchased one in NA
Yes it is a trap. Any real gamer who knows anything about video games, and have been following the industry from any time before the PS2, knows that the 360 isn’t going any where. Look at all the posers who come to this site simply to B!T(# and whine about the 360. The 360 is still in a strong position. M$ is going into a holiday with a lower price point than the PS3 and a better games line up. The majority of people out here are not so Sony brand loyal and the 360 is proving this. Think about it is about to be 2008. Sony is behind by close to 4 million in the U.S.A. The 360 is going to have to stop selling altogether for them to catch up by 2010 with a higher price point. Sony’s global sales equal the 360 sales in the U.S.A. alone. If you use logic and see the PS3 only out sold the 360 by barely 6,000 units after a $100.00 price cut, free remote and 5 free movies, you would understand that the PS3 is in bigger trouble than the 360 hands down. You know M$ is going to cut the price this year to keep market leadership. One the 360 price drop hits you will see what a real sales spike looks like.
Agreed - this site needs to change it's name to "News for Flamers" Most of these Anti-Sony & Anti-xbox articles are a joke.
unless your a 360 fan-boy it has hardware issues: FACT 10 mil sold in two years is a joke: FACT Its failed again in japan: LOL have fun ringing customer support
6 reasons why i am starting to get incredibly bored and fed up with this site 1. every other article is about the impending doom of one console or other 2. every other article is about rumored price drops, followed by articles of both confirmed by, and denied by, the console's company...and then denied again....and then another confirmation which is denied! 3. every other article is about stagnant sales, or surging sales, or back to stagnant, or back to one more week of surges, and then articles of impending doom are written based on weekly surging or stagnant sales.... 4. check 1-3 above 5. check 1-4 above 6. check 1-5 above
if there were no other news, this site would be very boring indeed  "MGS4/FF13 goes to 360" we had a lot of those I agree
you forgot about the MGS4 rumor...we had alot of those too...
Ever since E307 there's been alot of bad news for 360 fans lol! It seems like they can't handle it. When PS3 fan boys had a lot of bad news, they did'nt whine this much lol. The tables have turned!
like N4G has anything to do with the media that is being output. What's next, you are going to come with the same conspiracy theory some kids think. N4G is making up sites to promote the PlayStation brand? :|
I have to agree, it is always "doom" even though they keep selling. I mean hell I make fun of the PS3 daily and it's fanboys but it's not doomed, stuck in third maybe but not doomed it is the Playstation brand after all. I been on this site a long time like some of you from the begining and it's getting pretty bad. Tomorrow it will be PS3 is screwed all because of this and more rings of death and more PS3 sales are sh!t and the 5000th HD DVD vs Blu-Ray and so on and so on. You see alot of I hate Gamepro from Xbox fans and when MS pays Gamepro for the next thing they want it will be Sony fans saying they hate Gamepro. You see most gamers over the age of 21 knows Gamepro goes to the highest bidder, watch next it will be somthing bad about the PS3 or the Wii. You right though N4G needs to do somthing, as much as I love the flame wars they are getting a little repetitive and stale (same sh!t different day) I think if we or they were to cut down on some of this it wont be so boring and stale. Bubbles up DrRage77 for being true and real.
Next article..."how to save the Xbox 360". I remember PS3 had alot of these editorials too. Damn I'm sick of these articles. Just let the consoles live, we don't need your "what I think this console needs to do" input because there's always going to be someone who disagrees.
Okay even logically speaking if they sold 1.6 million since demceber they are in trouble and the ps3 has sold about two with European launch and the wii has sold about 9 million in less then a year and with recent problems of RROD hitting the public I wont say there outta they are in trouble.The RROD wasn't in the public eye I even seen it on the news so now they got a problem on there hands...even with the disc scratching..sony only problem is price that can be resolved easily why hardware problems are often harder to deal with If you disagree dont be a pus*y tell me why...You already took my bubbles away you fa*ots...I wasn't saying playstion didn't have problems either with their lack of software but you fa*s are just xbox fanboys...I tire of you fa*s...This article is about xbox and im pointing out problems I noticed..so BE A F*G and disagree you little bi*chtes Also this is not about me liking the ps3, I never said the xbox wasn't good its a great system just have hardware flaws and time and time again in the first years of next gen they have been out doing sony..but I bought a gamecube last genration first and was so pissed...so now im sticking with playstion and then eventually once they get rid of the RROD problems i will be getting one..playstion has always had a divers line up even last gen and they are doing the same trend this time so don't blame me if I stick with sony
Bubbles, I understand you like your PS3, but if Microsoft fails or performs like old xbox this generation, then next generation after this is going to suck very badly, gamers stand to lose. Ofcourse, RROD is cr*p but lets hope Microsoft comes back and holds its position.
PS3 sucks because of the price. I will get one if it ever gets to $300 just for the bluray player. I have a 360 and the games right now suck (untill August). I want a wii and might buy one if I can find it used. Right now all consoles suck and Im still stuck with a P4 pc. PS if the PS3 is still over $300 by the time MGS comes out Im renting a PS3.
you lost your bubbles because you use to be an immature fanboy. You use to make some of the most biased and stupid comments on n4g. That is why you lost them. I have noticed you are making a lot better comments recently though. So props to you for that and keep it up.
aha..(in Dave Chappele's voice): "gotchya b1tch!!" *kidding* -- just a little fun folks, don't combust on me....
The article actually has some valid points. I though the 360 was selling way better than the original xbox. Now I know better.
Two reasons this article SUCKS! 1. it's gamepro, for christ's sake! 2. nothing new here, just a list of crap everyone knows. like Japan is that important. they just recently sold a million PS3s. Publishers will SAVE money by not having to translate everything for the Japanese market. I mean, MS should just give up in Japan. If they want a 360 so bad they can import. The 360 could win in just Europe and NA alone. They just need to get more consoles out in those territories. Australia and NZ are important also. I think 360 is doing fine. Sales will pick up this fall and holiday season.
While the xbox may have a lot of FPSs, it's getting a little old when people say that is all it has. Out of 11 games I only own 2 FPS games (both Call of Duty), so I know the 360 has a lot more to offer (especially with upcoming releases). I am worried about the amount of money they have lost in the videogame business, but hopefully they can gain it back over time (but how much time could it take?).
I love FPS! People are so PSYCHED about Killzone 2, OMG, an FPS and so many PS3 fanboys complain it's the only thing 360 has. I know i'm psyched for it ;)
It is getting old. We as gamers have nothing to gain if one of the consoles cease to exist. In all actuality, it hurts us as the consumer, because the product we buy will not be as good due to the lack of competition. The more Sony and Microsoft push it this generation, the better the next will be.
Not only will products not be as good due to the lack of competition, but the products will be more expensive as well (when your the only one selling it, you have no reason to lower its' price).
This isn't news. This site might as well be FlameWars4Gamers with all this rubbish that gets in here, rubbish that nearly always leads to flame wars. Who approved this?
* The 360 is defective by design - two years in fans are hoping that maybe Microsoft will finally ship hardware that doesn't fail * 50 dollar a year online charge - that adds up to 200 to 250 dollars extra you are paying for your 360 compared to other consoles or pc gaming * No dedicated servers - paying for laggy online games * Low players counts for online games - Gears of War could only handle 8 and Halo 3 can only handle 16 * Staggering amount of red ink - the Xbox has racked up some 7 to 8 billion in losses over the past six year * Smaller than last gen disc storage - the 360 actually has a smaller amount of storage compared to last gen's Xbox - 7 gigs per disc versus 8 gigs for the Xbox * Can't handle 1080p games - too weak to handle all of the fantastic 1080p TVs people are buying now and have to rely on upscaling * Crappy graphics - games like Halo 3 look like last gen games and games like Forza 2 look even worse. Ignoring the usual Xbox marketing bullshots of course * Getting outsold by both the PS2 AND the PS3 - In Microsoft's only significant market the US * Dead in Japan * Floundering in Europe The only people buying 360s are form US Xbox owners. The rest of the gaming world continues to not give a damn about the 360 as they did with the Xbox. 360, trouble? No, more like train wreck.
No words? :( This ^guy^ has problems.
Fanboys at their best...
The one thing i hate is companys abandoning there hardware SEGA but hey at least the dreamcast worked
theres so many things wrong about that statement that i dont wont to even waste time correcting it.... in other words, hes a hardcore ps3 or wii fan..... i mean, i favor ps3 more than 360 (not in a crazy fanboyish way) but i dont talk trash or make up wrong statements about another system without knowing the true facts.....
I hope! that was alot of hate you had built up. But you have the right to your opinion, You must be a SONY FANBOY. Kinda last track of what the article was about oh well U feel better now anyway.
Listen the xbox 360 is doing just fine ........................ NOT!!!
