How the PS3 Closed The Gap on the Xbox 360

When the Playstation 3 launched back in 2006 to a host of software issues and hardware criticism, it was difficult to imagine a day in which such a negatively evaluated console would surpass the mighty Xbox 360 and all of its streamlined features.

Hats of to sony for taking only 5 years to close the one year gap. Many thought the 360 would be over as soon as ps3 released, how wrong were they?
One year gap + no games + sony arrogance = bad start
On the business side, Playstation division has only had one fiscal year of profit since ps3 launched

What a load of bull , the xbox division has been losing money every year which is why share holders want ms to sell it off, ms keep adding profitable parts of their business to gaming division so it looks like it makes profit. LOL ps3 has outsold 360 every year since launch ,silly troll.

I will give credit to the PS3's platforms overall design: brand name,
hardware,
games,
network
eco-system,
tradition,
culture,
mass appeal
and what not....

BUT..... Sony owes big time to the Sony PlayStation Defense Force volunteers specially here on N4G.

Please, Playstation fans had to put up with 3 years of crap here on N4G that started a full year before PS3 even launched.

They tried so hard to badmouth PS3 they actually wanted it to be stilborn at launch.

An if everythings so pro PS3 here now, then why do people have to keep defending it all the time? Its not like it isnt still the most heavi;y scrutinised console.

Its funny, everything on it gets judged to a higher standard yet the haters wont admit its of a higher standard.

Dude, they defend it when there isn't an Xbox fanboy comment to be found. I have pretty much observed it from the sidelines for entertainment, but you guys are the heavyweight champs of fanboys, so stop playing the victim.

how did the ps3 do it? its a PLAYSTATION. everyone knows that name. its the biggest name videogame history.

but what done it for me was

.nearly everyone is used to the playstation platform
.they knew it would be reliable
.the bluray was cool
.free online
.the exclusive games were jawdropping( GOD OF WAR) ( UNCHARTED) (TWISTED METAL) (INFAMOUS) (DEMONS SOULS) (HEAVY RAIN)(KILLZONE 3)(METAL GEAR SOLID 4)(LITTLEBIGPLANET) ICO/SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS COLLECTION) and much much much more.
.the webbrowser was really cool
.the bluray disks are harder to scratch
.and the playstation community is generally very mature from what i have experienced.
.it came with rechargable controllers
.the sixaxis is very cool
;)

Both consoles are great in there own way also hope next gen each console has a successful launch and agree and the ps3 had a terrible launch especially with huge criticism from vavle. Hope the mistakes are learned
