the recent PSN episode doesn't spoil their plans for the PS3 this year but with E3 knocking, I'm sure Sony has a few tricks up their sleeves which will make everyone forget this and move on.

Multi billion dollar company. Owns the top two all time best selling game consoles. The most by far owned internal games companies. Don't think there going to be to much of an issue.

Vitalogy2677d ago

You took the words from my fingers. And they have, probably, on top of the table a file about a price cut, just imagine they cutting its price right after E3, with a proper announce of course. In my opinion it would fire up sales like crazy.

wsoutlaw872676d ago

if sony drops to 199 it should have no problem selling

Just a reminder:

Fiscal years:

In FY2009 they sold 13 million
In FY2010 they sold approx +-14.5 million
In FY2011(till april 1 2012) they want to sell 15 million.

This means one thing: a pricecut of approx. 50 euros so the PS3 will cost about 249 around september.

When PS3 hits 199, sales would be crazy, like 20 million units a year.

They making so much they can now afford a price drop? *fingers crossed* So I can buy a second console for my sons birthday :)

morkendo2676d ago (Edited 2676d ago )

a 199 price drop would be a crazy announcement at E3..
second ps3 would be EXCELLENT.

Sony just took a 3.17 billion dollar loss. Also 11 other sony Ericson websites around the world were hacked and more personal info was taken. They are FAIL at network security right now and it's going to cost them. The gaming division though made a $434 million dollar profit. It's a shame I hate hackers but going after geohot and telling hackers to " Bring it On" was incredibly stupid. Awesome electronics products HORRIBLE PR people.

well 50 million after all

Nitrowolf22677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

it'll prob. be at 52-53 million by the end of june then if it follows like last apr-jun

PS2 is still going strong, sales are close to both PS3 and 360 for that time period.

longcat2677d ago

Okay, seriously, from now on the ps2 is the be referred to as

"that (console)which cannot be killed"

trounbyfire2677d ago

I really do think a price drop alone would sell 2 million in a month but you are right its probably 52 million.

things are heating up as the ps3 price comes down

Max_Dissatisfaction2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

You expect 3 million ps3's to be sold in 2 months? Lol

kneon2676d ago (Edited 2676d ago )

@15 million/year that's an average of 2.5 million in 2 months. Following a price drop you can expect a significant increase. They averaged over 2.3 million every 2 months last year

Nitrowolf22676d ago (Edited 2676d ago )


i said between 52-53 million,which would make a lot of sense if you take last apr-jun and just look at the pattern from there. It's quite possible. And it's 3month not two

It's very possible

not bad at all, they're lagging behind the XBox 360 by only a few millions now.

Looking good
That last graph shows a lot. Lets hope Sony listens when they release their next console

blackburn102677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

Sony already said that they will let the developers decide what the next console will be like. It will be up to then to decide what features the PS4 will have. @ PEDROBEAR for real. It is a last gen console and it's still selling. And no console has beat it in sales to date. And if it keeps selling no console ever will

iamnsuperman2677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

That is good as well and interesting what the PS4 might be like but what they really need to do is release a console at a loss to undercut Microsoft and Nintendo. $600 was silly and Sony paid the price early on. The tried to make more of a profit on the PS3 from the get go which was a mistake and they only realised that they could make their money back if the sneak the PS3 function of Blue Ray into households and make the money off Blu Ray sales a year after release.

gunnerforlife2677d ago


what makes you think sony released the PS3 at a price point that helped them make profit???
if i remember correctly EACH PS3 Cost 800-900 To Make and they were selling it at 600, so that was what 200-300 loss on each console, do abit of research before you say things like that, cuz they weren't making ANY Profit on PS3 just 200-300 Loss on each console made.

so PS3 shipped 2.1m last Q,not bad
how is 360&Wii shipped?

Veeger2677d ago

Three-line graph too complex?

Nicaragua2677d ago

That 3 line graph has no mention of wii or xbox sales so quit being a dick.

RememberThe3572677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

The graph did show the 360 and the chart above it says the Wii moved 1.36.

yourfather2677d ago

ah yes i got it
360 2.7m
Wii 1.36m

Fox012677d ago

Wow really!? The X360 is dead in Japan how did the manage to outsell the PS3 and the Wii?

RememberThe3572677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

It didn't. The sell-through ( or sales to consumers) were:
PS3: 2.45
360: 2.09
Wii: 2.00

The sell-in (or sales to retailers) were:
PS3: 2.1
360: 2.7
Wii: 1.36

Pretty good all around if you ask me.

check out the difference between sell-through and sell-in for 360, thats allot of 360s lying around, BUT how can sony have more SELL-THROUGH then they have SELL-IN :S thats kinda confusing me:/ ...

ohhh alright yeah that kinda makes sense now, thank you.
bubbles up

Fox012677d ago (Edited 2677d ago )

Ok, thanks for the clarification guys.

I'm guessing Sony overshipped last quater that's why. And Micro is overshipping this quarter?
