TheStreet.com gives an interesting take on the console war. They seem to think that eventually PS3 sales will be on par with 360 sales and even greater than the Nintendo Wii.
I just see that Halo 3 is now out and PS3 is still not dead. Did you see projected world wide sales last week? As I expected as soon as Halo 3 launch is past, Sony came out firing with price drops. And it's not 2008 yet. I think the better question is will PS3 make a comeback period. It doesn't matter what year it is. PS3 is planned to be in business for a while.
Don't you have to be on top at some point in order to make a "comeback"? When has the PS3 ever led the Charts? Maybe Sony can make a "comeback", but not the PS3.
Many contributers have complained to admin about Blookmask using a Ken Kutaragi picture on just about all his PS3 stories. Admin even went and changed the picture of his stories yet he continues to post them. We know that Bloodmask is one of the biggest 360 fans and PS3 Bashers/Haters on this site so he only posts these pictures to mock Ken Kutaragi and PlayStation fans. Look at all his submissions and count how many Ken Kutaragi pictures he's used. I counted 15 approved stories in the last 45 days alone. And thats not counting all the stories he submits that fail and go to the failed section.
I crown you King Crybaby of N4G. So what if I use that pic. Do I report your stories that have RROD pics on them. Like I said there is a difference bw being a fan and being and "Extremist" like you are. This bizarre emotional attachment to the PS3. Grow up man. It'll be OK. Do you report TheMART every time he uses a Ken Kutaragi pic?? It's obvious you have some sort of emotional disdain towards me which is kind of sad because you don't even know me in real life. And to everyone on N4G here all all of my submissions. Look through them if you like. I have nothing to hide. I contribute all kinds of articles to this site. Dirtysouf21 I recommend a box of kleenex and also a psychiatrist. Or maybe you could start a petition against me. http://www.n4g.com/up/8954/...
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa Waaaaaaaaaaaa* Awwwwwwww dirtysouf needs a tissue* SPAM DIRTYSOUF!
Your the biggest Crybaby on here always whining about people reporting your duplicate fanboy induced negative PS3 stories. Crying about people censoring news yet your a hypocrite because you do the same things you cry and whine and moan about. Admin changed your pictures before which means they consider it a problem. I don't report TheMart because atleast he's not obsessed with Ken Kutaragi like you are. You go around reporting positive PS3 stories all the time. This story is actually a positive one and i won't approve it because of who you are and what you do. I got nothing to cry about i own PS3 Wii 360 65 in. 1080p TV I have the best of all 3 worlds. I just despise fake hypocritical desperate people like you. @Firstknight what are you 4 years old or something? Yeah I'm crying.............with laughter at how desperate you guys are getting.
or sue him or something

When anyone questions the stories you submit (strangely 99% sony biased and created for inflammatory resopnses and flame fests - all to increase your ranking) you b!tch and moan and whine like a spoilt little brat that wants a new toy. Seriously, grow up souf, you are the biggest hypocrite here
ever since you come out to protect yourself on PRO xbox articles[every time you post one] I knew you were up to no good as a contributor. Like all the others that have gone bad because of money reporters don't play politics, your worst then Heraldo. it's like a reporter coming out on camera covering a war but taking sides on the camera. i seen so much [email protected] on here by you contributors, starting with the headlines and now BLOGS seem to be legal. cry me a river why dotcha..
DirtySouf, you are the one who started whining about the Ken Kutagari pic and saying to report Bloodmask to the admin. That makes you the crybaby. Who cares what pic he uses. And who cares what pic you use. Either you should both be able to use what pics you want, or there needs to be some strict rules made. Either way, it needs to be an equal policy all around. And does anyone else think that there is something seriously not normal about counting the number of stories that someone posts that happen to have a certain picture? And the amount of time they do it in? Holy crap, get a life.
I don't agree with PS3 sales ever being on par with the 360. PS3 will come close or match the 360 in price drop spikes and heavy hitter game release spikes but the trend will always come down to price advantage. 360 bundles releasing soon and MSFT has already mentioned they will drop another $50 soon after the first one(Didn't go with the full $100 due to Halo3 and other games selling the console well enough). Too many games coming out in 2008 for Sony to just come back and match the 360 in 2008 when the 360 will more than likely cost $200 for the Arcade, $300 Prem and $350 elite with monster titles releasing like Project offset, Huxley(sell like a new Halo FPS) Alan Wake and more Halo games and others. Sony ofcourse will not be outsold 3 to 1 like they have been. No way in hell is the PS3 not only going to match the 360 sales when the 360 will be $200 cheaper but outsell it by two fold as if the 360 stop selling period.
ignore the current PS2 fanbase like it's not important and will have no affect. It's rearted to think this way too. Once these consoles are at prices that average people will pay for, do you think the masses are going to miss out on MGS or FF or GT? How about God of War or Shadow of the Collosus? There are plenty of games coming to the PS3 system that will entice the current PS2 fanbase and yet you always ignore these things. I do think that this will be close either way. I don't think the PS3 will win by any large margin. I think it's going to be close.
The price point for the PS3 right now is good for consumers .. Its now affordable for a lot of people.. The games is whats going to make the difference in the end. Sony will own late 0'7, 0'8, and 0'9 with loads of exclusive games. 1. Uncharted Drakes Fortune 2. Ratchet And Clank Tools of Destruction 3. HAZE 4. Time Crisis 4 5. Unreal Tournament 3 6. Heavy Rain 7. Metal Gear Solid 4 8. Kill Zone 2 and lots more.. All these game can be system sellers .. The xbox360 next year only have like 2 games that is exclusive.. Its amazing that the PS3 was able to sell 5 million or more at 599..And now that its 399 I can't imagine how much it will sell..
Actually a better list of 2008 PS3 exclusives is the following. You can checkout the PS3 exclusive page on wikipedia for confirmation: Disgaea 3 God of War III Gran Turismo 5 Driver 5 Eight Days Fifth Phantom Saga Final Fantasy XIII Final Fantasy Versus XIII Hot Shots Golf 5 InFamous Jack and Daxter: The Lost Frontier Killzone 2 L.A. Noire LittleBigPlanet Metal Gear Online Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots MotorStorm 2 Shin Megumi Tensei: Persona 4 Steambot Chronicles Star Ocean 4 Tekken 6 (I think its still slated for 2007 for Japan at least) Valkyrie of the Battlefield White Knight Story (2007 for Japan) Yakuza 3 And there are a bunch more which I didn't really care to list, but other people might be interested in. My point is the Sony is still strong as ever as they've dropped their price and started a much better PR campaign.
Never mind reporting Bloodmast report the people running around personally attacking people. These Sony people are making many accounts using slander to attack people one of them made another account to post lies about me the other day. The one doing the most crying to the admins are the most biased members on the site and have had more than one account. I see a person in here that has made many accounts because I'v ignored this person twice already. This ridiculous agenda on this site does not reach the mainstream population. Check out the news post history of the fanatics running around complaining about "pics" before you waste the admins time. On topic: PS3 has to consistently match the 360 at least, out selling it consistently is another story. PS3 would have to be the price of the Wii to make up "6 MILLION" consoles. LOL Wii price and appeal helped the Wii catch up to the 360, it was a craz the casual consumers lead the charge in for Nintendo Wii(casual consumer do not buy $300 consoles let alone $400 consoles, the 360 is too close to the mass market range that will appeal to all demographics.
Everyone ask admin if i have more then one account. Ask admin if Power of Green, The Round Peg, and Bloodmask have more then one account and then come back and talk to me. Also this is a positive PS3 story i won't approve because of Bloodmask.
It's no secret that sony fanboys spend hours and days creating multiple accounts and enjoy ignoring 360 owners with ALL their accounts. It's even more sad that sometimes you catch them replying and agreeing with themselves. So Sad! :(
your a typical [email protected] your silly opinions mean sh*t to any body but your bum boy xbot friends... PS3 sales are going to go through the roof this year and next... welcome to real next gen... This Is Living.
Report as way off topic hate; personal attack spam. You guys did the same dance with the first drop.
Such a big deal is made about the battle between XBOX 360 and PS3. I predict that one day once they are playing their XBOX 720, they will find out that XBOX 360 lost, that PS3 won afterall. But they won't care. They will only care about XBOX 720 now.
funny how they will be playing on a sytem that won't match what the ps3 can do, when developers have 3 years developing for the medium (ie look at first generation then look at god of war2.. and they said it was hard in the beginning.. haha). All the while, ps3 owners will have only paid for a console once, while 720 owners will have shelled out over 800 dollars for their gaming experience. I will be taking bets that ps3 will outlast both the 360 and 720, ps4 will launch 1 year before xbox1080.. you can count on it.
Actually, the flyer from Future Shop arrived today with a nice bundle of the Premium system, Forza 2 and GH3 game and guitar for $399. I payed $100 and tax just for the GH3 game.
NICE to see Christmas battles starting already on deals. I am waiting on the PS3 for a bit closer to the time to see what package deals show up.
to cut the price of the ps3 40 gig to 299.99 this march when mgs4 releases and the 80 to drop to 399.99. the polls show that the most wanted games for 2008 are mgs4 at number 1 and lbp at number 2. and i know the whole g4 is excited about lbp because that what alot of them are getting the ps3 for they said. and then killzone will sell ps3's like crazy in europe and so will singstar. and unreal will sell ps3's for the hardcore fans of it. ps3 has so many ALREADY PROVEN FRANCHISES IN 2008. THATS WHY THEY WILL SELL ESPICIALLY AT 299.99. if my predictions are true, i expect ps3 to sell at LEAST 4 to 5 million consoles from feb to the end of aprail. we saw what a REMAKE of mgs did in japan for the psp.we know what singstar does in europe, we know that europeans (according to interviews)is the best game seen so far and we know mgs4 will sell GLOBALLY. thats why ps3 will make a HUGE comeback in 08. then jak and daxter, socom and everything else which is all PROVEN FRANCHISES. thats why i dont expect the 360 to sell like crazy because they dont have that many PROVEN franchises in 08. go ahead POWER OF GREEN and try to debate with me so i can own your stupid a**.....................AGAIN
MSFT is kicking ass because it has quality IP's; thats all you need(not hard to insure GOW like IP's that will become an new successful franchise under MSFT's supervision). You fanboys crack me up with theories that new games can not be successful. You guys don't buy games you people alway talk about those old ass franchises as if its the only reason to own the PS3 and thats going to hurt the PS3 in the long run with weak 3rd party support and no one buying games except for the Jack and Dexter's of the PS3. The PS3 demographic is diferent and not as profitable to devs which in-turn will have devs with alittle money thrown at them" to support the 360. PC/360 development will insure games are on the cutting edge for the 360 while PS3 is struggling. PS3 isn't out of the wood yet. * 360 fans: always looking forward to games & new content... * PS3 fans: always waiting to see what their old ass favorite's will look like on a next-gen console. * 360 fans: Buy lots of games regardless of pedigree. * PS3 fans: Only buys old time favorite titles, what good does is that to the devs?. PS3 will make up some ground but its Base is not good for the costs of next-gen we'll see that side/issue of the industry soon. Not going to fight about gigabytes or R & C only price and the lead in a good healthy mix of new IP's and 3rd party support that has proven to be an major factor in winning a console war. (LBP) is an juiced up arcade game and might" appeal to hardcore Sony fans and some of the demographic Wii has not going to push consoles on the level Orange box has. BTW grow up son.
Name me weak points of PS3 in 2008 year. I don`t see them, maybe you (some retarded fanboys) can tell me. =)
It's already the best value for money.
Anyone with a brain can tell you that 08' is PS3's year to shine. I mean, the titles destroy the 360's and especially the Wii's lineup.
Give the ps3 fans good games, they have been waiting a longtime. Sick of these game freaks posting this bullshiiittt.
Thanks for being a true gamer. Everyone deserves good games. Everyone paid good money for a console. Everyone deserves to succeed and feel good about their purchase. Anyone who tries to make others feel bad or bashes other consoles is ruining the experience. I swear, some casual gamers must refuse to go hardcore because of this wonderful 'culture' we've got going on here.
"I swear, some casual gamers must refuse to go hardcore because of this wonderful 'culture' we've got going on here." *Applause* Couldn't have said it better myself.
But I really don't care what system wins as long as I get the games.
Why do any of you goons (from either camp) want to see the other console DIE, or be Killed, or DESTROYED. "COMPETITION IS GOOD" .... for who you ask ..... "WE THE CONSUMER" Get a clue before stupid rant [email protected] posts. =========== HERE -- READ It is popular in some circles (gamers) these days to bash competition. Such bashing reveals more about the basher than anyone else. We all go through a normal growing-up stage (not so much with Fanboys) where some competition is essential for development of healthy technology growth. But what about adult competition? I don't think it essential psychologically, but it often provides some spice to life without necessarily harming anyone (shopping and sports are probably the most common examples). Competition can provide some relief of tension for someone with old competition-trauma-knots. While such tension relief over time may result in someone becoming addicted to competition, in comparison with many addictions a competition addiction is usually rather asinine. ============ Oh, and for those still in the 3rd grade: asinine: senseless, absurd, cretinous, daft, foolish, half-witted, idiotic, inane, moronic, silly, sophomoric, stupid
PS3 fans have been waiting for a good game?? last time i checked 360 fans were waiting for a good game lol look at all the AAA titles for PS3 rite now RFOM/motorstorm/HS/warhawk/fol klore/ninjaGS that look better and run better then anything on the 360 all games run 720 or higher - 360 lol only 2 lol PS3 doesnt have to mke a comeback - its on par with the greatest selling console ever - PS2 now with the price drop that is in the same avg as xbox and Wii - its a no brainer halo3 launch and sales of hardware idnt even cause a huge spike and halo3 was the "PS3 death bomb" HAHAHAHAH that game is a huge joke - same as halo2 - looks pretty much the same - jags all over and my theory of xbox1 sold 14million - and 360 still hasnt reach that goal yet shows me that all the hardcore ppl have gotten their 360 and all PS2 owners are waiting for the right time 2 buy - which will be this christmas and remember MGS4, KZ2 and FF13 havent even launched which are PS3 death bombs to the 360 and remember - ITS ONLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY the first year - its retarded to compare systems in sales vs a system out 1 full year - and if u look at the number its pretty sad that the 360 is only at roughly 12million which equals to 6million a year which PS3 is at rite now not even including the biggest sale spiker month december
Now that is by no means a ONE SIDED statement .... ;-)
For land's sake they buy the Wii. If they buy that they don't care about the PS3 or 360. They care about easy fun games and low ( sub $200) prices. This console war is fantasy until both consoles are under $200.
Trinity blood, taken from episode 18? Really good Anime...
So the PS3 will struggle to sell as good as the 360 in 2008 even though its gonna hve LBP + MGS4 + Killzone 2 + Resistance 2 + GT5 + Tekken 6, between many other BIG profile games (you think the average joe knows wtf Huxley is? or Alan Wake for that matter) ?! LMFAO, no for real, you make me laugh. Man, do you honestly believe in what you are saying? Do you really?
They don't have to know right now a quality game will sell period. Examples are in your very post. lol What does that have to do with a game's success?. No need to get offended by my opinion. Ignored....
ya they buy a wii play it for a month and never play it anymore happend with my 3 friends zack, devon, and alex now it just sits there power never getting turned on alone.
The Xbots against S-droids in an epic battle In a galaxy far away were nerds roam the forum Hateing each other like never before, it was Western green Vs eastern black. It was stupidity Vs ignorance. It was............ FANBOYS Edit: Damn it, i tried to write like the starwars intro but it was pushed together whn i pushed add comment =(
does not have any significant games this X-Mas so to stay in the game and move units and increase its installed base it is cutting prices on its system which was not moving b/c it is to expensive. M$ has games and so that will move the system. Sony is in this for the long haul just like M$. The video was just stating the common sense b/c the reality is that PS3 has only one way to go and that is up (I supose that it could remain where it is). Wii does not shift games in the way 360 does b/c it base is the casual gamer translation occaisional when my mates are over. Last x-mas the analyst said that X-mas 2008 would be significant indeed make or break for Sony and all they have to offer is the price cut. 2008 will probably be better for Sony but ultimatley the install base of the 360 will only increase unless they can outsell the 360 at a phenominal rate. I do not believe this will happen; but Kudos to Sony if they can do it.
"Sony does not have any significant games this X-Mas " same than 360 + ratchet and clank, uncharted, folklore, time crisis, etc open your eyes.
has in my view compelling exclusives along with all the great multis; like it or not Halo 3 is phenomenal. Exclusive games drive console sales Sony does not have that right now (Sony knows this b/c that was the key to the PS2 success). Most consumers will not purchase a system that offers them good things next year hence PS3 low install base. I could could buy PS3 right now if I want but I will wait for games that make me want to buy it. Halo made me want to buy the original x box, so I got it played that game and then had to wait for the next good game to play and that for me was a good eight months very annoying. So I will wait without the console gathering dust in my entertainment centre. The fact is PS3 has yet to deliver the Killer application that compels the majority of consumers to buy it. So I will wait for there to be a library of games that I find compelling before I buy it and I expect that the price will drop again in the meantime. I suspect that the majority of consumers feel the same way I do judging by the PS3 installed base. I am just being a smart consumer; but I encourage anyone who wants to buy a PS3 to do so.
The foolish fanboy rants on this story have officially turned me off from discussing games with any of you. I will continue to come here as it is a culmination of most of the good gaming news around the net, but I will not debate gaming with the fanboys on this site ever again. To the real gamers it was a pleasure. To the fanboys you'll do what u always do disagree with this. To that I say go to hell, burn there, and I hope your faces decompose from bacteria; 360 and ps3 fanboys alike due to your faces being so far up your favorite consoles ASS!!!!!
Nice one, bubbles for you =)
man, that girl was pretty hot.. anyone know her name?
bloodmask aiming for the $200, that's all i'm saying. Hit his page more and he will win. that's why right now he spend more of his time reporting controversial news only. Just to stir you guys up.

Seriously, grow up souf, you are the biggest hypocrite here.
It can't make a comeback when it was never a hit. Michael Jackson can make a comeback, but not the PS3.
ONE POINT MICROSOFT, GET IT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SIT AND DO NOTHING. SO F YOU PS3 FANS HOWEVER SOME ARE MY FRIENDS, PS3 IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH COME OVER TO THE DARK SIDE
the ps3 will make a huge comeback in 08 because sony does what they always do and thats foucus on the games. the 360 had nothing its first year, and when i say nothing i mean NOTHING!!! the 360 was a sad and pitiful sight through 2006 with every sad attempt at haveing a diverse and sestainable libary of games ending in failuar what i think we should do is instead of looking at things the way they seem to be is look at things the way they used to be and compare them to the present. the ps3 in its first year has already givin us amazing gaming experences in lair heavenly sword resistance motorstorm warhawk and folklore. now as you can see in all these titles that i just named sony has already in there first year acheived in there first year what microsoft couldn't do with in both last and current generation and that is great games and powerful diversity let me name the genres so far on playstation 3 flight action adventure, arcade racing, fps, third person online multiplayer, hack and slash, and mystery crime rpg. now lets look at the 360 scifi shooter "halo 3" scifi shooter "bioshock" scifi shooter "gears of war" scifi shooter "mass effect". clearly microsoft can only do one thing right and thats shooters and thats preety pathetic by my high standerds. quite frankly when it comes to the 360 i'm very unimpressed by its nondiverse catolouge of games. if i wanted to play the same weAK game concepts over and over again for the next 10 years well i'd probley be a pethetic 360 fan
There was not much publicity with PS3, but now it is there, then the 40gb at same time, they reduce cost and that is good. I am sure Wii will still sell console but not games, except Super Mario gaylaxy. But it is not bunddle with wii so that is excellent for PS3. PS3 will have spotlight on him with 40gb, 360 will start to fall, I think Ps3 will beat 360 in 2008-2009. The Ps3 is still young, but do not underestimate the dark side of the force, that is why Ps3 is black. PS3 strike-back. And we don't know maby we will see star wars trilogy in blu-ray, that is kinda Lucas, he like technology, he was the first to start THX sound.
so tell me what ps3 has, nothing. YOU PS3 FANS HAVE SO MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS AND THATS WHY THIS SITE IS LITTERED WITH BULL. I KEEP IT SHORT BECAUSE I HAVE TO MANY GOOD GAMES TO PLAY WITH THE 360!
djevolve greaT GAMES TO PLAY? i thought the 360 had no great games? yep the 360 is gameless
what do you mean no games? Seriously your high standards obviously don't go as far as your spelling - there is a button on your right that checks it for you you dolt. Like it or not, the 360 has games that suit the 360's demographic. As it stand right now, there are very little quality title for the PS3 - I know it will change, and I for one cannot wait, but to say the most sucessful games console this generation (Wii does not count) has no games is plain stupid.
Will the PS3 make a come back?? NO!
Yea the ps3 will sell better with a price drop but m$ is not going to just stop selling systems and go down to zero, plus with the line up of games. There is Also going to be a response to the resent ps3 price drop. they just keeped up the price because of halo three. bet they drop by 50 on premium and more mabe on the elite just to be lower then ps3. It's microsoft they have more money in bill gates back pocket then the whole sony corp. get it.
ok the first few posts made me chuckle on here but then it just got pathetic! Who actually cares which console wins the "war" enough to post enough drivel to make themselves look like a 10 year old? In my own opion the PS3 hasnt done too bad considering in its 1st year and theres a few games coming out next year that I cant wait to play so I think yeah it will come good in the end. Xbox 360 has been around a while now and is established so its hardly fair to compare the two just yet... maybe in 12 months but then I guess another new xbox will be around the corner. All in all I think that competition in the games market should be good for the end user but seriously... havign to trwal through god knows how many crap replies to read 1 or 2 good comments is just going to persuade people not to go on n4g
