This Christmas will be the first in which next-generation offerings from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all battle for the consumer wallet.
Hit the jump for more.
last xmas, kids persuaded their parents for PS3. of course only a few could afford it. This year, parents can now afford it. This will be an interesting console battle.
My prediction, Wii 1st, PS3 2nd (close to 1st) and xbox 360 very weak 3rd.
As much as I would love to see it. I don't see the 360 coming in 3rd. Im sure it will be what it is now with the Wii at #1, the 360 in 2nd, and the PS3 in 3rd. I believe that all the consoles will see a significant spike in sales this holiday though, especially with the price drop of the PS3. Unfortunately the PS3 will still come in 3rd i think.... :(
Were an eye opener for Sony. The month when they dropped the price $100 and still couldn't outsell the 360 had to hit Sony hard.
Call it desperation to drop the price another $100. I call it a comeback.
I say, Wii 1st, 360 2nd, PS3 3rd but close 2nd.
Thats if Nintendo can actually stock the shelfs with their product. We all know it will sell but will it be there when you go to buy it.
Predictions (American Sales):
1. Wii: 3 millon consoles
2. Xbox 360: 1.6 millon consoles
3. PS3: 1 million consoles (And that's a very optimistic prediction)
1. Xbox 360
2. Wii (due to lack of them)
wii and 360 will duel it out for first.
wow you guys are amazing, giving each console a place with out explaining.......=/ guys get real. atleast tell why you think its going to be like that.
When exactly does the christmas shopping start I mean you guys give your predictions yet no one is saying between which dates. I mean does it start with teh month of oct or is it nov through till end of dec.
christmas lists should be comming around that time.
and you'll start to hear Christmas carols at work and at places to buy your Gaming needs.
Teh xbox suxxors and teh PS3 fails forever! Not even the Wii can stop the Dreamcast.
Teh Dreamcast will own this holiday with titles like Sonic Adventure, Soul Calibur and Nights! Forget Gaylo 3 and LameZone 2 and C0ck Band! Nothing can beat teh Dreamcast for this Christmas.
