Kevin, Shane Battenhausen and Greg Miller discuss the Playstation 3's possible come back. They also say PS3 might win the console war.
1 - Might die less than 6 months
2 - Still uses last generation disks
3 - Sound's like a helicopter in your house
4 - Scratches disks like a ...
5 - Online = not Free
6 - No 1080p
7 - No HDMI
8 - Only 20GB ( Elite 160 which you have to pay 450$ )
9 - more more more ....
Wins and PS3 lose ? Is that fair ?
Xbox 360 has many great games right now and I think the games are better than PS3 but it was out for 2 years. PS3 is warming up and after Uncharted, R&C and COD4 its going to pwn the 2008 with it's great games.
Thanks to Mr. remix because he gave me this news and I thought it's useful.
Where do they get up these experts?
Watched a few eps very anti Sony Im guessing just anothe part of the M$ hype machine.
XBOX 360 FTW!!
when hell freezes over
I had to reply to your points.
1 - Might die less than 6 months -- Not ALL consoles die. Even if they do, there is a 3 year warranty. Still, Not all consoles die.
2 - Still uses last generation disks -- Those last gen disks work fine. You can't tell me Blu-Ray games are WAY better than comparable 360 games. If the devs can fit a game on the 360 perfect. The longer games (RPGs, Metal Gear) could just use swappable discs, not a big deal.
3 - Sound's like a helicopter in your house - And this is a basis to judge a console? Who cares? Turn your sound up. If there were a console that had amazing graphics and all the games of all the consoles but was loud I would most definitely get it.
4 - Scratches disks like a ... -- Again, this doesn't happen to all. Mine has NEVER scratched a game.
5 - Online = not Free -- It is a far superior and more reliable service. I'm VERY happy paying $50/yr for a refined, reliable, and standardized service like Live.
6 - No 1080p -- This is a lie. 360 does 1080p
7 - No HDMI -- Also a lie, the 360 has HDMI.
8 - Only 20GB ( Elite 160 which you have to pay 450$ ) -- Buy a hard drive separately, big deal. Either way, 20gb is fine. I'd prefer 40gb but not a reason to HATE a console.
I'm not being a fanboy, I'm just pointing out your ridiculous reasons for not liking the 360. The PS3 is an awesome piece of machine but not because of the reasons you've quoted above.
Quite the statement there...
1. MOST LIKELY will die within a year
2. 59.99 for a DVD? WTF??!?!
3. Not as bad as a helicopter, maybe a small generator. But thanks to my 360 I don't have to buy a small heater for my room
4. Which way? vertical or horizontal? If you have it vertical it scratches and blocks the most important fan, but who wants it horizontal?
5. Dont lie to yourselves fanboys, you don't like paying 50 dollars a year. What are you paying for? In game chat? WOOOWWWWW
6. Not sure about the 1080p thing. Supposedly it has that
7. Xbox has HDMI, mine doesn't but apparently new xboxes do.
8. As much as I hate Microsoft, I have two Xboxes and like being able to swap the hard drives. But I also like the fact you can actually upgrade PS3 drive without paying 200
9. I'll add, no wifi, no rechargeable batteries, no internal HDDVD, and much more
lessthanmarcus- I greatly enjoy paying for Xbox Live. I use it everyday and find it very satisfying. Microsoft did a great job. Yeah, it would be good if it were free, but i still dont mind paying.
Hydrolex- most of your arguments are quite stupid, way to go. I have one, PS3 has no good games, which may not be true (it is in my opinion), but its at least a better argument against a GAMES console than any of yours. Ive had my 360 for about a year and a half, hasnt died and hasnt scratched a disk. Disk scratching was warned against in the manual, plus who moves electronics which a disk is spinning within? Hi common sense, i'm <insert your name here>.
Don't get me wrong, the PS3 is a great machine but it has already lost this generation. With the PS2 it was seen as the "cool" machine with mass market commercials using the PS2 in it. Now, every mass commercial you see on television has people playing the 360. Even Espn is featuring the 360 instead on the PS3. Go check it out, www.espn.com.
The image war is now over, so that puts the 360 on top. At least in all of America that is.
Before I start I want to say sometimes you read a comment that just has to be responded to, if for no other reason just for the outrageous ignorance of a dumb fanboy.
Comments like this typifies the common over sensationalizing FANBOY.
Exaggerations only make you sound like a little b!tch and not a reasonable person. Lets put your bullsh!t into perspective shall we.
1.5 - Corrections:
1. "MOST LIKELY will die within a year"
You are speaking of the early version of the 360 yet you still want to press old issues. However if someone said the that PS3 has no games, you would quickly correct them and say that it does now, and you will further start ranting about future titles. Like you're reading from a script.
2. "59.99 for a DVD? WTF??!?!"
Hey genius it's not a movie, it a video game. You are paying 59.99 for the hard work of the developers. Yet you'll probably pay 60 bucks for a piece of @$$ in a heart beat. (Grow up)
3. "Not as bad as a helicopter, maybe a small generator. But thanks to my 360 I don't have to buy a small heater for my room"
I don't think the 360 is a loud as your typical PC, but no ones whining about PCs are they. Also, my PS3 is quieter than my 360, but It's not silent and the difference between to two are not so much that I need to call the other one a vacuum, helicopter, or small generator.
Also, if the 360 can heat your house, maybe you should move out of that cardboard box.
4. "Which way? vertical or horizontal? If you have it vertical it scratches and blocks the most important fan, but who wants it horizontal?"
Most anyone that doesn't have to put their 360 in a book shelf wants it to be horizontal. Funny my PS3 is horizontal also. If you don't want your 360 to scratch disks, try waiting til the disk stops spinning before opening the door Einstein. Or stop knocking the damn thing over. Besides, I don't think the new benq drive is scratching disks and this is the drive being shipped right now. Once again old news. (See #1)
5. Dont lie to yourselves fanboys, you don't like paying 50 dollars a year. What are you paying for? In game chat? WOOOWWWWW
What! What! What? No one "LIKES" paying for anything. However I will pay 50 bucks for anything that I think is worth it. And I think XBL is worth every penny.
6. Not sure about the 1080p thing. Supposedly it has that
If you're not sure about the 1080p thing, then you don't know sh!t about the console or news on the console which makes you just another talking puppet. One more thing "STFU"
7. Xbox has HDMI, mine doesn't but apparently new xboxes do.
Apparently...see #6 and take heed of the STFU part.
8. "As much as I hate Microsoft, I have two Xboxes and like being able to swap the hard drives. But I also like the fact you can actually upgrade PS3 drive without paying 200"
Bottom line, money is your problem. You're cheap, I'm sure the PS3 you now own is the 40 version. And you'll never upgrade the drive because 7-11 is not paying you enough.
9. "I'll add, no wifi, no rechargeable batteries, no internal HDDVD, and much more."
Okay, honestly what "Quality gamer" actually plays online using WIFI, also people know the PS3 has WIFI and if WIFI was an issue for 360 owners they would have either bought the WIFI adapter or a PS3. I will take replacing no recharible batteries any day over replace the entire controller since the batteries are sealed in, or did you not know that. As for the built in HDDVD player, I will use my standalone HDDVD player if I want to play HDDVD movies.
One last thing, you have so many reasons to HATE on the 360 yet you claim to have two. What kind of genius are you? Don't bother answering, I already know; you're the dumb kind. As for Hydrolex, your comment is worse than lessthanmarcus so I won't waste my time on you.
To such an idiotic and mostly false statements. I guess all the PS3 fanboys with their 10 accounts each have all logged in to agree with you..
All I can do is speak from experience.. I own both a 360 and PS3.. The 360 get's played the PS3 is a dust magnet.
@1.3 & 1.8 - Thank you for correcting these 2 fools. I will only add that sounding like a helicopter in your house is just a little b!tch exaggeration. It is the DVD drive that you hear in the older models but since they have started using the BenQ drives they are very quiet.
Why don't you STFU too. You're just as bad as they are. Give it a rest.
Seriously to all the trolls and fanboys, who the f@%k cares?
Oh, BTW while you at it, why don't you go ahead a guzzle down a couple cans of "STFU" also Mr. 3 week old account noob. As if your response added anything to the conversation.
Thanks man, you took the words right off my keyboard. I couldn't have said it better myself...
Every 360 now has an HDMI port and because it does not have a HD dvd drive they will be able to drop the price another $100 bucks when GTA4 comes out in the spring, no way can Sony do that with a BR drive.
In fact, PS3 hardware saw a higher percentage increase from the previous week than the Xbox 360 did. However, that percentage was based on a smaller volume of unit sales. In reality, the increase in Xbox 360 sales was nearly identical to the increase in PS3 sales, although Xbox 360 continues to significantly outsell the PS3 in North America. 24-Nov 17-Nov
Wii 421,419 254,044 +66%
DS 684,202 224,540 +205%
PS3 174,045 94,801 +84%
PSP 194,723 88,977 +119%
Xbox 360 254,680 163,759 +56%
Soon-ish Final Fantasy XIII will be released for the PS3 and I speak for more than just myself saying that that game alone will boost PS3 sells. Also considering the come-back of the rumble feature. Yay-ness all over.
Recent studies have shown that black people are not as smart as other races because of flaws in their DNA.
Hydrolex, thanks for reinforcing the study.
1. I don't think I'm speaking of earlier versions. My first Xbox broke had to pay $129. And the refurbished one I got back broke too. But hey, no one gets RROD anymore right? That was old Xboxes. I guess those stories of 360 Elites getting RROD were false.
2. Yeah I'm paying for a video game NO SHHIT. But since a blu ray disc costs more than a DVD why is it the same price. Look at the Wii. Games are 49.99.
3. youre right I live in a cardboard box, and I don't have a PC so I wouldn't know. my mac hardly makes any noise (like i said i hate microsoft)
4. I dont open the disc tray. Halo is in there and it never comes out. only game worth playing. and what the hell is up with the disc tray anyway. even the wii has a slot loading drive
5. just an opinion, i pay 50 bucks too and its not worth it. youre paying 50 dollars for P2P. theyre not paying for dedicated servers. it lags a lot too
6. name a game that runs true 1080p resolution. i can't think of one
8. I'm very cheap. I have a launch 60gb PS3 that hasn't crapped out on me. I have a premium 360 and a 360 Elite. I also have a Wii. But hey, I've been thinking about getting one those 40giggers though, I need an extra blu ray player. Don't believe me send me a message and I'll send you a pic.
9. don't feel like reading but if you can't afford wifi thats cool and HDDDVD already lost
That's good you have a PS3 though. So when you get RROD you always have something to fall back on. Also, I hear Metal Gear is going to be a pretty cool game. Don't know about Killzone though. I'm waiting for Tekken and Gran Turismo. I can tell you what lies in PS3's future like Home and Little Big Planet. But 360? Gears of War 2? anything else?
one last thing, the reason I have two xboxes is a pretty long story. I thought the elite were not prone to RROD. also i'm not a genius. Just a guy in the usmcr with a degree in web programming. the average guy
What is your gamertag? My guess is you won't respond. Want to know why thats my guess? Because as much as you complain about the 360 I know there is no way you own one. People that own 360's don't complain about them for the most part because they are having to much fun playing games.
Let's do this one more time shall we..
"1. I don't think I'm speaking of earlier versions. My first Xbox broke had to pay $129. And the refurbished one I got back broke too. But hey, no one gets RROD anymore right? That was old Xboxes. I guess those stories of 360 Elites getting RROD were false."
Why are you bringing up the same old crap from week to week. M$ refunded or is refunding all RROD cost to 360 owners so why bring up $129.00 if you got reinbursed. I know why you didn't get your money back, because you never owned a 360.
"2. Yeah I'm paying for a video game NO SHHIT. But since a blu ray disc costs more than a DVD why is it the same price. Look at the Wii. Games are 49.99"
Once again, there is a lot of development cost that goes into making gaming software. You are paying for the work of the developers not just the damn DVD. Trust me, if sony could get away with charging 69.99 for games I'm sure they would. But sony's not stupid, PS3 games costing 10 more would be another point for Sony haters to whine about. The nextgen price point is 59.99, wii disk don't cost nearly as much to develop as 360 and ps3. Perhaps that's why they are cheaper.
"3. youre right I live in a cardboard box, and I don't have a PC so I wouldn't know. my mac hardly makes any noise (like i said i hate microsoft)"
You're a MAC user that hates Microsoft, probably simple because windows competes against os X. That explains a lot, it all simply blind hatred. Who needs it? I don't!
"4. I dont open the disc tray. Halo is in there and it never comes out. only game worth playing. and what the hell is up with the disc tray anyway. even the wii has a slot loading drive"
Obviously you halo disk is not scratched (although I don't think you own it, cause you don't own a 360.) Besides, isn't your "Ragedy 360" broken, the way you put it, it's always broken. I'm not mistaking am I it is broken right, cause if not, then why are you on this site B!tching like a little girl.
"5. just an opinion, i pay 50 bucks too and its not worth it. youre paying 50 dollars for P2P. theyre not paying for dedicated servers. it lags a lot too"
This one's easy, I don't believe you are an idiot, however only an idiot would pay 50 bucks for something that they don't think is worth it. IT's as simple as that.
"6. name a game that runs true 1080p resolution. i can't think of one"
Honestly, who cares? but to answer your question, Street Home Court,
Virtual Tennis have be confirmed to be native 1080p. There are 35 other games that are list on the box as 1080p, but may be upscaled. http://www.makeyougohmm.com... additionally, 360 software is selling just fine. I don't care if a game is at 320x200 if it looks great and plays great, and I get the data I need on screen, i'm happy with it. This 1080p crap is being given way too much credit.
"8. I'm very cheap. I have a launch 60gb PS3 that hasn't crapped out on me. I have a premium 360 and a 360 Elite. I also have a Wii. But hey, I've been thinking about getting one those 40giggers though, I need an extra blu ray player. Don't believe me send me a message and I'll send you a pic. "
Don't send a pic, send a gamer tag instead. I don't need pics of you buddie's system.
"9. don't feel like reading but if you can't afford wifi thats cool and HDDDVD already lost "
The circus is down the street on your left.
"That's good you have a PS3 though. So when you get RROD you always have something to fall back on. Also, I hear Metal Gear is going to be a pretty cool game. Don't know about Killzone though. I'm waiting for Tekken and Gran Turismo. I can tell you what lies in PS3's future like Home and Little Big Planet. But 360? Gears of War 2? anything else?
one last thing, the reason I have two xboxes is a pretty long story. I thought the elite were not prone to RROD. also i'm not a genius. Just a guy in the usmcr with a degree in web programming. the average guy "
Haha, one thing I do know about is the military, here's a lesson son. You have a degree in web programming (which are a dime a dozen). Yet you don't have your commission. You are making 1/3 the money you could be making. You're right you ARE NOT A GENIUS!
Lastly I will be enjoying those same PS3 titles "when they come out."
in the meantime, I have uncharted, and many other ps3 and 360 titles. So, unlike you, I living in the now and not the future.
i dont think its gonna win this console battle. but it does have more games that i enjoy. metal gear was one of my favorite games on ps1 as well as final fantasy 7. if any company wanted my money, you need to have these titles.
I'm not gonna bash Wii but it never wins this gen because of cool controllers. Only Xbox 360 vs PS3 so do you think Xbox 360 wins ? LOL do you have more ? I mean cracks are not good for your health man.
Of course PS3 might win if we WAIT. It is made to last 10 years (lol).
At that time Nintendo and MS has released their next consoles. So Sony can keep selling it's golden oldies and yes maybe some day in future when there is no more Wii nor 360 support PS3 indeed has sold the most.
The question is WHEN should the winner be announced. After 10 years?... or 100?.. or will archeologists judge it in distant future?
so u should announce a winner after 1 year? makes sense to me...not
It's rather simple. You don't base the winner on consoles sold, but the games or accessories sold for your particular console. The attachment rate is what will determine who wins.
Some people may have only purchased a system for primarily watching movies and may occasionally purchase some video games. While on the other hand, you will have your extreme gamers, like those of us here at n4g, that purchase a lot of games.
So whether it's Xbox (360,720), Sony (PS3,PS4) or Nintendo (Wii, Wiiiiii), you can look at trends over a period of time and attachment rate of a system and this will be one of the greater factors in determining which company (not necessarily console) is winning.
I went to Amazon.com and looked for the high end 360:
Xbox 360 Elite System Console Includes 120GB Hard Drive (because the hi end is the one I am looking for.
The 360 Elite is starting at:
available from $749.99
7 used & new available from $749.99
A 80 gig PS3:
Buy new: $499.99 34 Used & new from $480.00
Is that right? Or did I type in something wrong? Not enough info?
Please tell me because I really want to buy an Elite. Just not at that price.
Is this deal a bundle? It didn't look like it.
So its $250.00 for 40 GB more?? Is that right?
That can't be right!
Whats the difference between the Elite and the next step down?
Ok I get disagrees with no response.
I went ahead and looked up the one step down.....
Xbox 360 Pro Value Bundle:
9 used & new available from $348.00........ Ok thats better but what is the hard drive?
20GB detachable hard drive..........
OK, so I can get a 20 GB hard drive 360, new for $380?
A new new 80 GB hard drive PS3 is $499?
I might as well save up and get the 80 GB PS3 because the 360 is a year older. More to come to the PS3 before its life span.
the math says buy a ps3 ;)
Yes, well I see that. The fact is I want a 360 for the exclusives it has. I just don't want to spend that much at the moment.
With all the games coming out for the PS3, its hard to justify it at that price. Plus I still don't know if the hardware problems are taken care of with the 360. I have never seen proof one way or the other.
Maybe I will get an 80 GB PS3 as a dedicated Blu-ray player for the family room before I get the 360. I have a 60 GB already. I just finished Uncharted. What a great game! I will start Assassins tomorrow.
dude, are you being sarcastic or something?
a 360 Elite is 449.99 at best buy, that's also where you should be buying it, or a PS3 for that matter, from. i believe the Elite also comes with Ultimate Alliance and Forza Motorsport 2 at no additional costs.
a PS3 from best buy can cost you anywhere from 399.99-549.97, the latter coming with Guitar Hero 3, a guitar, and 2 wireless controllers. the cheaper one comes with the blu-ray movie Spider-man 3.
seriously though, where have you been? you should search around the site before asking silly questions.
here are links for your reference...also if you get it from any retail dealer, make sure to get some type of "product replacement plan", especially for the 360. that way if it dies within 2 years you can take it back and walk out the store with a brand new one hassle free.
Xbox 360 systems
now that i look, i find it funny that a lot of the Xbox 360 bundles are sold the fvck out. you might have to wait a little bit if you choose that one.
I thought Amazon was crazy.
$449 for an Elite? I'm sold! Might have to wait to get one if supply's are low.
I have a question for you.
I will be getting Gears.
Maybe a few others.
GTA (my fav), Resident Evil Silent Hill, any other 3rd person shooters.
GT and many other racing games.
What should I look for on the 360?
Just so you know, I'm not blowing smoke out my a$$.
Heres the proof:
lots of sense
if youre buying a 360 U MUST buy it from best buy, or costco. in this case when the 360 rrods on you u can easily replace it. By all means, try to buy it from costco since their return policies are much better and/or flexible.
the 360 is a reliable console, im writing this comment on it right n
Edit: yeah , sorry about that. i was writing that comment and my friends 360 died on him. I am writing on my ps3 now......never any problems. EVER.
sells refurbished core systems for (I think) 199.99; you can add a detachable hard-drive for 90 dollars. You could probably get one cheaper elsewhere if you looked (maybe eBay?).
And, for the record, nobody likes it when people flash their cash in real life; it's horribly tacky and only proves the point that money can't buy manners. To do it on the internet and waste time taking, uploading, and hosting photos is a whole new level of douchebaggery.
@ (Not so) Witty Comment
Why would I want to buy a refurbished 360?
Oh and by the way....
Thats not even a word.
Get over it.
I already have a 60 GB PS3.
Bought it last December.
Get a PS3, no thinking involved. Plus you get Blu-Ray built in, rechargable controllers and a high-end DVD upscaler.
That is just too funny, I was laughing when I read your post. Too cool my friend, too cool!
So you're saying I should buy a PS3 even if I don't like the games? What if I want to play Gears of War, Halo 3, Dead Rising, or Orange Box tomorrow, I should still get a PS3 because of Blu-Ray and rechargeable controllers?
Those are NOT reasons to buy a console and you know it.
Currently the 360 Elite is out of stock at Amazon.com. The price you see are prices made by independent retailers. They folks are hoping to find some desperate person looking for one so they can gouge to for their money. Either go to bestbuy, circuit city, or somewhere that has them in stock and you'll find the correct price 449.00.
And that's real talk.
Best buy it is.
Just wondering, but why would you buy an 80 gb ps3 if you already have a 60 gb?
To have a dedicated Blu-ray player in the family room.
Decided against that though.
Going with the 360 in my game room instead.
Might still pick up a 40 GB for that purpose later on.
Burnout Paradise for the PS3 confirmed as the better version. I can breathe easy now.
Whats a Xbot, Greg Miller, doing talking about the PS3? Oh! Wait, IGN made him a PlayStation editor there. No wonder the game ratings on the PS3 there suck.
Agree if you support the PS3.
Disagree if you support the 360.
(has nothing to do with my own opinions)
If you support both or neither, just step back slowly - the fanboys on this site will mob you either way.
whatever, i support both. fvck the fanboys. they can kiss my arse. i'm the one enjoying what each has to offer, not them.
and all you so called gamers should understand this but your so brainwashed u dont get it
if the PS3 ends with 60mil and the 360 ends with 66mil
is that a vicotry to you fools!!!!
The victory is in the games. Getting to see MGS GT5 Socom GOW and the many many other games that have been all-time sellers on a nextgen system is all this is about.
Getting to see Gears of War part 2 and part 3 is a victory
We will be playing awesome games for many many years to come and i know Sony will be there just like Nintendo and MS.
Winning will give you more 3rd parties support... More games...
Remember 3DO? It didn't win...
I stopped reading after Shane Battenhausen .
Is that because he's the only 1UP journalist that believes the PS3 is actually a good console?
Anyone else care what he thinks? I've been gaming longer than that kids been pretending to hook up with girls on the weekend.
Only to masturbate alone.
but yea everybody knows. i dont think people realize that the 360 and ps3 are ALMOST even in global sales this month. the 360 might have sold maybe 100,000 more though.
the ps3 is kickin ass in europe and japan, all it needs is america.
once that happens, it will be outselling the 360 by more then 500,000 units a month. and i bet that sony will cut the price to 299.99 this march.
people its common sense. even if the ps3 only outsold the 360 by 10,000 a week in each country, thats 180,000 a month and 180,000 a month would mean by november, the ps3 will have closed the gap by almsot 2 million.
but most of the time when a console outsells another, its usually by about 30,000 so that means that if the ps3 gets america, the ps3 will outsell the 360 by over 300,000 a month and im not even including the bumbs it will get from mgs4,socom,killzone2,LITTLEBIG PLANET. its common fuc*in sense. but again, good lookin out HYDROLEX. BUBBLES FOR YOU. ps3 is the lead platform for burnout and alot of people knew it was better on the ps3
seriously, hes an idiot.
next year is splinter cell 5, halo wars, warhound and the like and 360 is only gaining ground back now in europe with the forza bundles all selling out and more..........
its too early to call the race and that's the way it is......i don't think there will be any "clear" winner but I think each will take a territory...
and MS is going to gain some real ground in japan now especially going into next-gen.....their YTD sales are at 200,000 and that's about 500,000 consoles overall in japan with more shipping....so they killed the original xbox sales....and they'll have quite a foothold ( a larger foothold) going into any future war....
we shall see and btw, shane is not too hot he often gets his sports figures mixed up let alone his prediction s..... :-(
sorry but that aint true,
xbox 360 has horrible sales in europe and even worse in japan still and loosing ground every week. The ps3 instead is gaining momentum as we speak and will definatly be the main platform (ps3/360) next year. And that is no prediction its a fakt. stop thinking the us would decide this console or format war. its the european union and japan and we all are pro ps3 and blu-ray . And sayint the xbox360 is doing well in japan is a joke mate the xbox 1 was more than horrible in sales and the 360 selling more is no archievement at all its just less horrible tending into the very very bad sellings region.
The 360 has been pretty equal in european sales with the ps3 this year... with the 360 winning a few months here and there. NA is 360 land. Japan is the only soft spot but no biggie.
that is true mate,
except its 360's second year and had an advance of 200 bucks less
the truth is the xbox360 hasn't even got started in europe, because most places have it sold out (forza/ or half life bundle) and assassins creed is still eating up the charts....
its not fair to the 360 boys to be declaring the ps3 overpowering it, when the 360 is far harder to find, sold out, and even $800 in some freakin' places.....
lol sushix, firstknight is right on you need to wake the f*** up because warhound, splinter cell 5 and those titles like halo wars will be huge in europe....
and to top it all off, the xbox 360 saints row 2 and grand theft auto 4 with exclusive levels.......these are going to be the games of europe by FAR, in fact ubisoft games rarely ever leave the charts......even over a month later
also, what u neglect to see mate is that despite these setbacks for the 360 its on a warpath in europe and thats where the war is going to end because europe is the lynch piece.... their priority is there
so you can never expect any backing off in europe...
japan will stay japan but u know what?? its false thats its losing ground my man, its selling very well for having the games it has at the time and JRPGs too...
7000 to 10,000 a week is not losing ground, and it only increases depending on whatever the big game release is.
you see, if xbox itself had done this to begin with? and started releasing a big game every week, it would be where its at now or far surpassed it......it was the failure to secure those games which took xbox to where it was in japan
nothing else sushi, so dont be fool or racis.......this is like firstknight said, a REAL match now and those sales are nothing to laugh at...
to even push 360 in japan aside is like pushing ps3 in america aside.....it didn't have to do blockbuster sales to smash the ps3, it just released one or two games in japan and instantly beat the ps3 & one of them was merely ace combat...
so it has the endurance and this is going to be coming down to the continent of europe, u'd have another thing coming otherwise.....
just because a console is sold out doesn't mean it's doing good. Sony just happen to make more console then any company out their. The fact that sony has more console being produce is a good thing. while xbox 360 is sold out, sony can gain ground on them. That's why sony will keep the lead if microsoft or nintendo doesn't ramp up production.
they can barely manufacture enough 360s in europe to keep up with the spring and summer sale demands......
when they start concentrating specifically on europe, and that's where its heading expect them to ramp up production in large quantities....
especially for the release of grand theft auto 4 and the likes of battlefield: combat 3 from electronic arts...
oh and nintendo will be shipping millions of wiis, long before the millions of needed xbox360's are officially distributed to europe.....
Xtival 2007 was a hit.....
Sony to regain the top spot in 08'
I don't know about in o8 but it will easily in the next 8 years or so after that... probally 09 or 2010... I think its quite funny actually... Xbox 180 just released Halo 3(OMG the biggest game they will ever release) and are already being beaten by the PS3 TH NEXT MONTH..... OOOOUUUCCCCHHHHH!!! Bet u Microbcuks didn't see that one coming!!! Imagine when they actually release MGS4, Gran Turismo 5, LBP, Killzone 2,WKS, GTA4, Socom, Syphon Filter, Final Fantasy 13,Resistance 2, Haze, UT3, Far Cry 2,Metal Gear Online, MotorStorm 2, Warhawk 2. PLaystation HOME,the Getaway Infamous,And about 50 other games.... we are talking about a worldwide massacre. And I'm gonna laugh so hard because it really is coming.
how did he even get his job!?
I thought the interview proved that buffering wins the console war. It took forever to load.
Tell you what has struck back, the curry i had last night.
these guys are retards.. The only place sony is losing in is The USA and there gaining closer and closer to the 360 every week now in the US.. Also the last couple of multi plat games have been exactly the same on the both systems or even a slight better on the ps3.. Only EA does crap ports..
The story should be will the 360 have any chance against the ps3 in 2008?
The Christmas season is just begining NPD numbers aren't in for the month of NOV and we haven't even got to DEC. It's way too early to be declaring a rise of the PS3 we not even sure what they really sold. Its one thing if the PS3 is selling 3x the 360 this holiday season its another if they are out sold again.
Achievements on the PS3 aren't going to suddenly convince EA to invest more money on the platform. They just suffered their biggest losses last quarter because their titles simply aren't very good, and are often times pretty bad. With game prices as high as they are, consumers usually won't settle for crap, and EA is either going to pull out and make fewer titles, or finally learn that having a 50% employee turnover rate isn't helping their titles and they need to rectify that.
Multiplatform titles are Finally getting done well on the PS3, and a few even perform better on Sony's system (Call of Duty 4, Burnout Paradise, and some older ones like Fight Night and Oblivion). Sony's got the right price point and a steady stream of great titles coming out every month; they've been working hard to support third-party devs moreso than any point in Playstation's history, and it's definitely paying off.
lowering the price of development, like they did, doesn't hurt either
