With the slash in the 80 gig version, Sony's sales on Amazon have skyrocketed. Consumers have quickly responded to the new price. The price cut for the holiday season has so far been well recieved.
WE TOLD YA! SONY PS3s ARE GAINING MOMENTUM THIS TIME!... 18 mil PS3s in 2008 confirmed. PLEASE DO NOT BUY COWBOYS TECHNOLOGY - It breaks!
JAPAN HI-TECH WINS!!!
According to our internal analyst, the PS3 are sold out globally!!! Go buy one while its last, Sony deserves to WIN! Thank you!
Dude, this isnt even a sales chart..
there is the bestsellers list
guess whats at number 1
AMAZON FRANCE,AMAZON GERMANY and AMAZON UK
poor x360 dead in EU and JAPAN and would be fully dead in NA soon
but the 60GB is at spot 20 as well.
That's pretty sweet. 900%?!?! Wow.
Let's see how long it lasts.
After the NPD numbers looks like the Sony Fanboys are looking for something positive!
Cooke, can you even read? What does the title say? Best selling item? No. It says Sales Jump as in moving up the chart. Which is exactly what the Amazon link provided shows. Not betst sellers that you want to interject.
A very poor try at jumping into a pro Sony thread and throwing water on the fire but all you did was get burned for your stupidity. Have fun. Remember, Stop, Drop, and Roll.
back when the 60gb had its price cut. We heard the sold out stories. Yet the 360 still beat it in sales. SO instead of just posting these news stories. Why dont we just wait for next months NPD numbers.
But like it says at the top(The biggest gainers in Video Games sales rank over the past 24 hours).And when I was looking at it here in the A.M. it got up to 1,100%.It very clear a lot of people where waiting for the price cut.
nobody wants the 40 gb model.
It is now at number 1. Wow.
EDIT: Just to show you the stubborness of idiots that are so afraid for their console they stick their head in the sand and start yelling. Two disagrees. And they are disagreeing with what? Cold hard fact. It is at number 1 and no amount of crying, pretending, caterwalling, disagreeing, or praying to Bill Gates will change that. Tough but suck it.
EDIT 2: It is up to 1,077% and 3 disagrees. More proof there are at least 3 people here whose mother couldn't outrun her brother.
sooner than most think, the ps3 will replace the ps2 as the most popular gaming console ever...
No its not number, this is just a movers and shakers list, not top selling list. As you can see, GAMECUBE sales jumped 161% :|
yeah i found that pretty strange along with some other things on that list...
Yep, but it's just after one day of 499 80GO !!! tommorrow or soon = First.
for sony. the price cut was a smart move.
and the holiday hits are coming too. i guess it is really a time to buy a ps3. i know i will.
Yes it was a smart move, hopefully they can establish themselves in this console war.
Heck yea I'm getting the 80 gb too!
Edit: HAHA I love watching you garbage box fans squirm! Disagree all u want PS3 is still the best system and all the millions of soon to be PS3 adopters are in for a treat of the next several years! GO PS3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me calm down ???? Every thread I go into this COOKE guy is trolling saying.. no this isn't tru, it can't be , no .no no but its YES YES YES. It's annoying dude. I like the PS3. Alot. I have a garbage box and Halo 3 blows. Thats is my very strong opinion and I hate when fans a console thats not even comparable try to PROVE seomthing when there is nothing for them to prove. People love Playstation. Its going to sell a ton and Halo is not gonna stop it. Serisouly get over it and stay on your own threads unless u want a 360. Stop being crazy and jealous. I'm not in xbox 360 thread although I KNOW its a piece of junk that has burnt down on me 2 times. Seriously ur weird. We don't care what u think. Don't u get it? PS3 is the best system. We know it and u want to try so hard to convince us otherwise but its NO GOING TO HAPPEN. GIVE UP.
calm down... its just a machine. you praise it as though it was a god or something =P
And he wonder's why he has only one talk bubble :P
reduce PS3 fans to one bubble SPEAKS VOLUMES about the amount of insecurity your underpowered console provides.
if your 3fixme is really all that then let people have their say. The only time you want to shut people up is when they make you look bad.
THE KING IS BACK!!
Well considering that There is two different version of the ps3 on Amazone. If you add both of their sales together, I might be in the top five or top 3. Hell it might be at number one. But anyway, Most ps2 owners that own a ps2 right now are waiting for the 40G one to come out.
Holy SH!T... 908% is a HUGE leap in sales... well hell, that kind of price drop is sure to get people buying... good job Sony for listening to gamers and dropping the price, especially since the holidays are coming up and some sweet games are on their way too. Can´t wait to get my hands on Uncharted :D
I'm glad ps3 is finally getting a boost in sales and i hope this will mean that sony will have a better position in the console wars. :)
Good for video game industry. More consoles sold = more money in the games.
go sony go! cooke your 15 years old? or are you just retarded stop the hatting
and that is the bottom line.
its easy to gain 908% in one day when you were previsouly selling barely any to begin with...the npd numbers had come out for september and the 360 sold 528,000 units.....in one month....the ps3 sold likw 130,000..
lets wait and see how long the sales spike lasts for the ps3 since the same thing happened when the ps3 had its first price drop in july.....its elevated sales lasted not even two weeks before it sank back down.....
Man I thought nasim was the one posting this but hey what a surprise, by the way as I said early it Just the beginning for the PS3
Truth be told I want to see how the 40 GB does. But anyways I am glad that it has moved up this much so quickly.
Off topic but Ratchet & Clank is only 4 days away now. Happiness all around.
Since 60 GB PS3 was the one selling, not the 80 GB one; now the 80GB one, with a game and more HDD space has the same price point so... it's natural. We'll see what happens when the 40 GB PS3 is launched.
Anyway has you guys check that x-box 360 is up 40% Sales and was rank 79 man how long can it stay there since PS3 keep rising and now are n0.1
there is nothing that microsoft can do to beat sony this holiday season it's a done da da sony has uncharted haze and ratchet and clank future. true next gen gaming experiences reserved for the one and only greatest gaming mechine on the market the ps3.
The only thing holding Sony PS3 back is the price. Sony is not dead yet, its only been out for one year and it hasnt released its blockuster titles yet. So there is still a long time before you can count sony out.
You guys think that is huge? Here in Canada the price dropped from 549.99 for the 60 GB to 479.99 and from 649.99 for the 80 Gig to 499.99....the 60GB is already sold out at future shop. This was a great move by sony. Then with the 399.99 model coming in november...sigh :\. Sales are going to explode.
It is going to Sell Out Fast.
all you guys stayed away from the NPD thread stating that the 360 killed the PS3.
unlimited: I'm sure Sony has a lot of good games coming out, but so far PS3 users don't seem to buy games. Look how bad HS sales are compared to 360 games. Hell I'm one of the ones that bought HS (son was done in about 2 days and doesn't touch it anymore).
Halo 2 sold more xbox then halo 3 ever did for xbox360.. did that mean xbox was makin a come back..hell no..but still i think its amazing sales..but it wont still gaurantee microsoft 1 this gen..
PS3 got big seller games coming out soon its their for the taken
selling like hot cakes
MS or Nintendo is in position to drop the price of their own as well. Suddenly we will be back at square one.
Nintendo can't produce enough consoles. Price isn't their issue. Halo 3 launched too early. Three months before Christmas is enough time for the newness to wear off and people will want something 'hot'. New and hot as in a new and hot console.
The Halo effect has dropped off. The number of players is also dropping. There is bigger competition than when Halo 2 launched and as good as the game is it won't sustain the 360 sales.
What big guns are left that are exclusive to the 360 before Christmas? What exclusive big guns does Sony have left before the same day? What exclusive big guns do either have between now and March 08? The days of counting on multiplatform titles to look better on the 360 are over. CoD4 anyone?
wow, i was like WTF!!! but then i saw that even with the 980% jump its STILL getting outsold by the wii.elite is #16 best seller
80 gb ps3 is #11. (thats including the 980% jump)
edit. oh lol didnt see that.
its pretty cool how the 360 outsold the wii just cause of halo 3 launch. but the ps3 couldnt even get close to outselling it wiht a 100$ price drop.
Nope wrong, the 80 gig is at #11. The 60 gig is at #19
Edit: HAHA he changed his post, Im guessing you feel like a real Xbutt right about now. And for the record I'm not a fanboy i own both systems so dont bother calling me one
Someone else that didn't read the thread title OR the link on Amazon. It isn't biggest seller but biggest mover in the sales chart.
now the 80 gig is at #10 and the elite is at #18, thats what 900+ percent can do smart a$$
You think you could give it a little more than a day to see how it sells.I mean the price cut just happened and its starting to increase sells.If it does sell which it will,what are you guys going to say?Anyway
give it time hell the PS3 is still expensive but its only been out nearly a year.
ridiculous, it's just day one for 499 80go ! (and you have to add others sku)
I suggest anyone that can, to purchase one (or two) for themselves. They are great machines with a very nice return on investment.
I'm here enjoying a little R&R in Phoenix and then it's off to L.A. When I read this good news it just makes my vacation even better. SNE's stock is up 9% this year - this is great news for investors, plus Pachter believes the PS3 will sell a million in December.
-- "Sony may sell as many as 450,000 PlayStation 3 consoles in November and almost 1 million in December, Pachter said. Consumers have purchased 6.3 million Xbox 360s, introduced a year earlier, according to NPD Group Inc., a Port Washington, New York-based researcher." --
Keep it up guys. Viva La PS3!
You are on vacation, you hear that the PS3 is starting to gain sales momentum and it makes your vacation that much better. Wow, I love both my 360 and my PS3, but they carry NO impact on my personal time with family while I'm on vacation. Unbelieveable, I never knew people cared that much about something that will have absolutely "0" dollars impact on their lives.
Makes you wonder just how far they are willing to take this fanboy stuff, kinda creepy.
There's nothing creepy about it. Nothing at all.
Its just innocent fun. Just taking sides in a rivalry. Red vs. Blue, Yankees vs. Red Sox, Michigan vs Ohio St, USC vs UCLA or UNC vs Duke. Same thing.
If someone is on vacation and finds out (via the internet) that their favorite team won a big game and it makes them feel better, is that creepy? No. Same thing here.
It isn't odd at all. For many people gaming is a huge part of their life. My wife and I have no children it is a huge hobby for me and now part of my employment since I am leaving the military. Many others are the same way. Some people hang out and drink at a bar shooting pool, some go to Little League games and some just game. Look at this:
If I am on the road my new PSP slim is with me. If you are in game development in any manner or even in the news side it can be a big part of your life.
LMAO hahaha you owned yourself there , the link states that the 80GB PS3 is #11 , its outselling all 360 SKUs
holy sh!t balls
now that is crazy. isn't that the largest sales spike the PS3 has had since it first came out?
I myself think there is going too be this time of "panic buying" that moves some consoles....after that its going too be like the first price drop...the 40 gig wont be as sucessful as some of you think....mark my words...being a gamer since most of you were spermatozoa i know what I am talking about. October will be a great month for ps3....just like july...but after the initial 60-80 gigs are gone whats next..we shall see.
your opinion is no different than anyone elses opinion. we just have to wait and see.
at batman below: have fun with ME, but i'll be playing ratchet,COD4,uncharted, and haze. it just comes down to preferance. only game 360 has that i think is "must have" is bioshock.
it would be different this time, first because the price is lower, than because this time we have à lot more of great games (october, november, december)
I think this is just temp. just like whn the 60 gb price drop, the sales flew but it didn't make a big jump. I do remember it going up 1000% or more last time.
But still, this is good for sony, but i don't see any die hard must have game this year.
Mass effect has my wallet.
For the past few months, the PS3 has ALWAYS been above the 360 in bestsellers at Amazon, and the 360 still outsold it month in and month out(except July).
Amazon is only one retailer and gives a small glimpse into what may or may not be a trend. I would give this at least a couple weeks before all you Sony fanboys claim "it's all over".
its pretty sad how the 360 outsold the wii just cause of halo 3 launch. but the ps3 couldnt even get close to outselling it with a 100$ price drop.
The drop was in effect for four days in Europe only...Not US or Japan(I think) or Austrailia(I think), also it was Xbox 360's biggest month since launch because of Halo 3. Let me say:DUH?
well those sales increase are in the US. the 80 gig console is now 499$ in US
Anything postive is good right now. As expected you will see a PS3 sales surge. And Halo 3 won't launch again. Hopefully the sales will get less ugly for PS3.
That's about all you can hope for right now.
You sony boys are pathetic. Just admit, the 360 also has good games. I own both, and they're both good consoles. This isn't the beginning of the end for 360. Grow up.
"You sony boys are pathetic. Just admit, the 360 also has good games. I own both, and they're both good consoles. This isn't the beginning of the end for 360. Grow up."
All the fanboys are, it's sad really. Being a fan of a brand name I can understand, hell I was a huge fan of nintendo back in the day and hated sega (For a little bit) but it's gotten crazy over the years and now it's just insane. They all bring something to the table and to be honest the competition is great for gamers, though owning all 3 systems is even better for gamers (if you can afford them that is)
haha the damage control begins, right after the EPIC xbox 360 sales from NPD :D
omg. wait... so now that the ps3 80 gig is 500$... how much is the 60 gig one? maybe its time to buy a ps3. :)
Didn't mean to disagree...
The 60GB is according to Futureshop $479.
but isnt that future shop thing is the UK? ive never heard of it here in the states.
