In UK ps3 is trailing DS and WII by slight margins.

However in spain,germany ,middle east and france ps3 is dwarving all other consoles in sales.

so by the end of 2007 ps3 will win EU and perhaps JAPAN with a white ps3 + price cut

2008 for sure is ps3's year. With Killzone 2,resistance 2, FF13 and Mgs 4 all due in 2008 there is nothing the competition can do other than watching themselves being crushed in the process

@ahmad

each of MGS4 /FF13/WKS will sell a million ps3s in JAPAN ,EU and NA.

LBP might end up selling 20m copies and so could FF13/MGS4

AnalFace3594d ago

hell yer!!! 2008 is the year!!!

LOL PS3 IS JUNK LOL3594d ago

Until then you have no games to play so you come on this site everyday and talk sh!t? This X-mas is going to belong to the Wii and the 360. That means that the 360 will have a two holiday head start.

And....the 360 is wining in EU. Its not dead....its far from dead....moron. Its selling more units than the PS3. Its really pathetic that you PS3 fanboys admit that the console is crap right now and that you can't wait for EOY 2008. Why did you buy the console?? To wait for a few years and then finally enjoy a AAA game? You aren't gamers...you're morons. The xbox 360 is massive amounts of fun since day one. I didn't go to the store, purchase it, and then watch movies for two years waiting for decent games.

The PS3 is not going to win this war easily....its possible that they could. But look at it from a sales point of view. Developers want a nice turnout for their games. The 360 has over 2x the sales as the PS3 and after this Xmas its only going to be a larger margin. Obviously developers are going to want their games on the 360. Meaning, M$ will step in with their unlimited pockets and spray fart all over PS3's Turdstation.

caffman3594d ago

so every PS3 owner is going to buy 4 copies of little big planet?

lonestarmt3594d ago

haha out selling the ps3, not really. The total numbers are twice as much as ps3, but if you talk about where the ps3 was in its life cycle and the 360, the ps3 is actually doing better, and the 360 had no next gen rivals. The 360 out sells ps3 one month, then the ps3 out sells the 360 the another. I sure hope the 360 has twice as much total sales numbers as ps3 when its has almost been out twice as much as the ps3.

LOL Nasim your such a retard.

"each of MGS4 /FF13/WKS will sell a million ps3s in JAPAN ,EU and NA.

Jinxstar3594d ago

@ PS360. As I recall. Latest numbers indicate Super Mario Bros has sold over 40M to date.

Kleptic3594d ago (Edited 3594d ago )

ah yeah ps360rocks?...4 million?...MGS 2 sold more than that...halo 2 sold more than that...halo 3 is also almost there...most FF's since VII have been right around that too...god of war 1 and 2 also I think, iirc...

and lets not forget each of the GTA III versions...where did you that information?

PS360PCROCKS3594d ago

What are you two talking about did you read Nasim's comment? He says that LBP and FF and MGS EACH will sell 20 million individual copies. Who cares if Mario since 1987? has sold 40 million. I was laughing at him because he thinks those games will sell 20 million a piece and he thinks each game will help sell 1 million consoles in every territory. My ass...and I was referring (4 million) to the about what Halo 3 has sold so far, not what it will sell.

Ahmadinejad3594d ago

as i said below, even if those franchises sell a million copies each, still many millions of consoles behind and 360 sales are not gonna stop

LBP sells 20million? nice just pullign random numebr out there. if its priced at $10 or £5 and it still wont sell over 10 mil cause it wont be that many PS3 owners realistically

People seem to forget a little thign called GTA IV and i gaurantee u th extra promised content will make sure that the 360 version sells more and i am not sure if the PS3 version be as good graphcially or performance wise

Jinxstar3594d ago

Who cares. Im a PS3 fan at heart but Nasim has no credibility at all. You do though. Just saying though that some games have sold a lot.

MGS4, GT5, FFXIII, KZ2.

apart other great games, these ones are must have for really big audience of gamers. =)

chester3594d ago

i couldn't really care less about GT5, or FFXIII. MGS4 has my interest. KZ2 has me curious but not overly excited. the game that I want far beyond every one of those is LittleBigPlanet. the other games might be pretty, but nothing looks like it will be as innovative and interactive as LBP.

CrazzyMan3594d ago (Edited 3594d ago )

chester, well, i only can tell you that, for those ps2 users, who played mgs, ff, and gt and had great experience on PS2 most of them looking forward for sequels of their favourite games. And definately will buy ps3 just to play one of those game.
And it`s around 10 mln. GT users, 5 mln. FF, 4-5 mln. MGS.

Really i don`t know any gamer, which played mgs, ff or gt on ps2 and not excited about MGS4, FFXIII and GT5 on ps3.
Well, and KZ2 is like geow on x360, great HD experience for almost anybody, who will play it.

p.s. i didn`t mentioned LBP, because, it`s hasn`t proved itself yet, though game looks great and definitely will draw some atention of new playstations users.

chester3594d ago

i definitely hear where you're coming from. i agree that those are the big boys for the sony year. i will definitely be picking up mgs4 and will be looking at kz2. i was just saying personally all those games will look pretty but what i'm really looking at is lbp because from what i've seen and from what they've shown it looks like it could be a true next-gen game with a real community aspect that very, very few games on any system have been able to produce. so just for me personally, that's what i'm looking forward to. but the other titles will be huge i'm sure.

Premonition3594d ago

I think PS3 will be in 3rd place at the end of 07, dont get me wrong it will sell well, but I think it will sell so good that it will finally take the lead mid to late 08 as its true powers are finally shown to the public and more promotions, and 09 will be PS3's real big year and beyond that its going to be crazy as devs finally understand the cell and RSX tag team combo and find different ways on how to use them.

CrazzyMan3594d ago (Edited 3594d ago )

The only real Potential system seller for this Christmas on x360 is only Mass Effect.
There are about 1mln. KOTOR lovers worldwide, and a BIG chance, that this game will in next 6 month after release come to PC.
AC6, ES - timed exclusive games, noone will buy x360 just to play them 6 month earlier.. imo.
x360 has some chances, if it gets price cut for premium till 299$.

While ps3 has:
Ratchet (just OMG experience on 42TV with 5.1)
Uncharted (really addictive adventure game)
2 really amazing games.

+ Haze (from Free Radicals - have some potential)
+ Folklore(this one won`t sell much, but still a great game)

+ Free online.
~GT5:P japanese demo (for GT fans)
UT3 could sell some ps3`s, depends on how many people have powerfull PC`s today.

bym051d3594d ago

With the lack of trailers / gameplay examples, etc. I'm starting to get worried you won't see FFXIII in 2008.

CrazzyMan3594d ago

How many Uncharted or Ratchet trailers you saw in 2006?
Let me guess, per 1 for both, and still those games coming in 2007. ;)

Uncharted haven`t been shown for public in 2007 till May, till Sony Gamer`s Day, only some exlusive screens in GI magazine were available. =)
Same goes for Ratchet, only 1 month earlier. =]

Vertius3594d ago

Just because we're not seeing gameplay footage of Final Fantasy XIII doesn't mean Square-Enix aren't working with the engine as we speak. :)

Meus Renaissance3594d ago

I'm not hating but when I see the list of PS3 games in 2008, and compare it the Xbox 360 games in 2008 (the ones announced anyway), only one set appeals to me; Sony's lineup. Microsoft dominated the software market in terms of quality and AAA's in 2007, Sony could potentially in 2008 do the same.

That's just my personal opinion. I understand that others will agree and that's fine. All about personal taste.

chester3594d ago (Edited 3594d ago )

microsoft hasn't really concentrated on announcing a 2008 lineup, as they have been pushing christmas 2007 for what seems like 8 months. beyond this christmas, besides the big one (gta4), the only other really big name that is a 2008 game is ninja gaiden 2, which will also be huge. personally i'm also really looking forward to splinter cell: conviction. but to think that microsoft won't have big games coming out in 2008 to go against sony's lineup is foolish. we just haven't heard about them yet.
like what is MS puts out gears2? probably won't happen in 08, but if they announce it and start putting out the media like videos, details, etc then it will be just like all the MGS4 talk has been this year.

2008 should be good for games for all systems. (except wii, of course)

Vertius3594d ago

There are two reasons that Microsoft haven't announced many titles for 2008: They're holding off for a more advantageous opportunity... or they don't have anything! ;)

The truth is probably between the two, since Bungie, Bioware, and many of the other developers that tend to release games exclusively for the 360 have released games this year. It'll take some time for more to be made.
