CVG Writes "April's PSN hack and the online service's lengthy outage wasn't good new for Sony (or anyone, Microsoft included), but it doesn't appear to have dampened US consumers' appetite for PS3"
I believe them.
I believe they were in better position last year, when they had a price cut and was hitting their stride with massive growth. This year, they are still growing, but growth has slowed down. Future health of a division (or company) is attribute to profitable growth. Nintendo is in dire sh!t as they are growth is contracting.
with all the games for later this year and 2012 plus psvita at 249 playstation brand is stronger than ever
@joeorc There's something you missed here. A generation does not equal 10 years, that's a decade. A generation means new descendants. So you could argue that everytime a new console appears, we're moving into a new generation of gaming. A lot of people seem to miss this point (if we look at it literally). Dunno where you heard a gaming generation = 10 years. OT: I can see why the PS3 is doing well. It's a great console, probably the best out there right now (and yes I own 'em all and will get the ones to come, I'm a game freak). Still can't wait to see the Wii U though and what games it might be bringing to the party (and here come's the disagrees for even mentioning the Wii U).
I just bought a PS3. I think that's good enough proof for them
There's just so many good games coming out. I'm gonna need to take out a loan.
Vita has certainly reinvigorated my enthusiasm for the platform. Not that I had stopped looking forward to InFamous 2 (until I got it.), Uncharted 3 and Twisted Metal. Not to mention Starhawk.. oh my god am I psyched for Starhawk. Really hope Warhawk and/or Starhawk is brought to Vita unaltered with cross play. Oh man that would make me happy.
"Stronger than ever!" It's slowly gaining the upper hand with its selection of quality exclusives.
Slowly? Upper Hand? It's?! EDIT: I was going to type something long like stuff but now i'm tired. Well done Sony.
Read the title of the article. What don't you understand?
No it was a Family Guy joke, sorry if that came out wrong. I'm off to bed PS3pwnz, night man. Hey say hi to the kids for me....aaahhh your alright....your alight.
I believe (Hums X files tune)
I agree stats and statements coming from Sony are all make believe.
and you sir....live in a make believe world
What are they talking about. PS3 always sells the least in the US and by quite a substantial margin after the hack. Sales are up but market share is down. Way down.
I'd rather take worldwide than petty old US, lol.
Alright. 1st quarter 2011 worldwide: 360: 2.7m PS3: 2.1m Wii: 1.37m
now these articles are coming up where the hell was everyone for the last 36 months when wii was dominating and ppl were givin bs excuses to count nintendo out. wii is still sellin tons.
Teh salez, teh salez! Why is it that when an article like this comes around, you guys scream teh salez, teh salez?! The PS3 is strong in terms of games coming out and games that already came out. This is all you guys have left? Wow.
The article mentions sales in the US so I talked about them. So defensive, implying I'm an xbox fanboy just for mentioning how the ps3 is selling the least in the US. Stop pretending the US doesn't matter. It's easily the biggest market therefore most important. I'm well aware the ps3 is strong worldwide.
Reread what I said, then we can talk.
Looking forward to a great year of gaming!
@news4geeks - Ther are other markets, other than US.......
Honestly PS3 has had better years . I wonder whats the cause of the slowed momentum
because 2011 ends in June. /s
LMAO.. PS3 lost to both Nintendo and Xbox this month in the NPD numbers. Not really gaining steam here.
So...you DON'T remember the PSN being down? O_o
Of course I remember it going down. Which completely shows exactly what I said being correct. That the title of this story is wrong. It's not stronger than ever. Not at all. Don't they remember PSN being down?
Trust me. It's stronger than ever. I'm not sure the PSN outage was as big a deal as people on this site make it out to be.
This just in: Company says its products are good.
That's great, Sony has a stronger stride than before.
Still the most expensive console on the market and holding it's own. People like to bring up that 2.1m to 2.7m ww sales, (lol) but if that the most that the xbox can pull ahead in Sony's darkest time, then somethings up. The PS3 must be doing well for Sony, contrary to popular belief.
Man they need some new suits and management.
To those mentioning t'salezzz... Over 350 Million Rubiks Cubes have been sold worldwide.. It only comes with one game and has no exclusives, but if you buy three of them you can juggle too!.. 360 whooped by Rubiks Cubes << Headline.. Salez don't mean crap.. we are talking about GAMES consoles.. so GAMES are what matter!... It doesn't matter what your playing them on as long as your playing the GAMES you want to play! PS3 is doing well as is 360.. YOY I believe PS3 wins WW sales wise (this year not yet being over) but it doesn't matter regardles.. #RantOver ---Play Games Not Sales---
i agree...both the systems do the same thing...and thats play games.... so go by which has the best quality and quantity of games... if you look at it this way...its PS3 or Wii... i play all of the 3 main systems...so lets not start with the fanboy name calling... the xbox 360 ruled the game market from 2005-2008....but after that...the PS3 took the crown...and is defending it better than any system has done in the past... WE ARE THE RESISTANCE -GAMERS UNITE-
