DS is little monster
It will be interesting to see how the year 2010 turns out to be. The PS3 has had its share of boost with the Slim console and the 360 is picking up some momentum with the new S. Post November though, GT5 will burn the village down.
By now, the Xbox 360 should've taken the lead back in Europe. Last week it was just some thousands of units away.
Yeah thanks to pirating :)
Cos we all know that lil system is pirated like crazy. Why not just admit that people love the DS more than they do the psp? Man, always some excuse with you Sonynites
DS is indeed a monster haha....but you have to give credit to the PS2. it simply does not want to die and we have to remember that not everyone can afford the current gen consoles. 3rd world countries still love the PS2 and the library is still huge and good enough for most people.
PS3 doing great. PS2 nearly 1 mil? NICE
. PS2 is immortal.
Wow, that gap closed fast in hardware from the last Sept chart VGA did. If that pace keeps up it looks like it will overtake the PS3 by years end. Good numbers all around.
You are forgetting about GT5 release, which is huge in Europe. That gap might increase for the PS3 at years end
are you guys forgetting about kinect? whether you like that piece of crap or not its gonna sell and it will most likely sell some consoles as well
Its already at 136k units with 7 weeks to go. Move was at 40k pre-orders one week before launch. 140k sales at launch vs 136k 7 weeks before launch. Who do you think is gonna win the sales? Oh and yes, this is ALL about sales
Reach just gave them their last breath. Nothing else to look forward to they will die from asphyxiation.
I thought Uncharted 2 was the final nail. . .then there was God Of War 3. . .almost forgot Killzone 2 which Reach outsold within a day of release. Did anybody else notice that the gap between ps3 and x360 has narrowed to just 68k units? Tides are changing indeed, but not in the direction the Sonynites want to believe. Let me guess, wait til next year right?
haha wow how times change. dude no game console can kill another. remember when they all said, halo reach will be the final nail for the ps3 and also gears and also mass effect. no game kills a console. a fanboy trying to educate a fanboy using fanboy logic. go to love it hahaha
Reach and the slim have already passed, their effects may linger around a while longer, but the 360 probably won`t be closing that gap, especially with GT5 on it`s way.
with the 360's 18 months head start, it's now playing catch up to the PS3. Now it's targeting the casual market, I don't know what MS is planning for it's hardcore gamers.
This is only 2010 sales, so what does the head start have to do with it? If it was life to date sales, then you would have a point.
But if think of how much market share MS has taken from Sony this gen, MS must be happy. Sales are almost 1:1 but PS2 to Xbox must have been 9:1 to Sony.
that the PS3 is overtaking the 360. If you compare the first year of PS3 to first year of the 360, then you will notice that the PS3 is outselling the 360.
on top of 360 GT5 still yet to come......
Well the numbers are good for both MS and sony but the Big N are still king of the home and hand held market. I think MS have done amazing this gen to get the 360 sales to where they are after what sony have done over the last 2 gens and with it only being there 2nd console in the market. Sony have done a good job in getting the ps3 numbers up this year too but you all have to take your hats off to the Big N for turning round being last for the last 2 gens to out doing both sony and ms. I hope the good sales on all 3 platforms keep up like they have done as it us all good for us gamers as we see the best of all 3 company's when it comes to there top games and new hardware.
Do you really think gt5 will be a system seller for the ps3?
In Europe and Japan - very much so. In America not all that much but I'm figuring the US version sells about 3 to 5 million easy.
well yeah. i kinda do. its the most anticcapated game this year. you know how long people been waiting for this.
playstation 1 was first sony's console and it destroyed n64. so why everybody is amazed with x360's taking a lot of ps market?
I'm kind of confused about this console war. Normally a console war lasts for what 5 years? Seeing that trend why do people constantly talk about 360's final breath or PS3s lack of making it after so and so years. I mean "this" current console war has been over for a while now - clearly the guys over at Nintendo took the crown. I mean they haven't taken a console war since SNES and that wasn't even fair. Now that that's done: HD Console war... If we're going by the 5 year trend Microsoft clearly won, if we're going to pretend that magically that trend isn't a trend isn't it obvious that Sony will eventually - based on probability - win? I mean what's with the fanboyism guys you don't work for any of those companies, you should be worrying about the next game release date not system sales. No matter who "wins" they're all making tons of money - okay maybe not Sony but they're bound to eventually - based on probability.
you have a very skewed sense of logic. The next console war will begin when there are new consoles on the market. You cant just say that a generation is typically 5 years so thats it, any sales after now dont count.
started posting profit. http://www.marketwatch.com/... there goes another excuse from the ps3 doomed squad.
The debate over whether Kinect is for "casuals" or not or how hardcore Move really is, isn't really a logic debate. When it comes to defining casual and hardcore, the definition lies within each and everyone of us. I consider myself to be both a casual and a hardcore gamer. It is when you set up your own goals (hunt for trophies, highscores etc) that you become a hardcore gamer. It is not dependent on what game you are playing. Solitaire on your computer can be a hardcore game if you want it to. The choice if something is hardcore or not, lies with the gamer, not the hardware. I hope that Kinect, Move, 3DS etc sells well, cause I want the possibility to be hardcore and casual in as many ways as possible. :)
