The Prune: Where is Sony now going forward to 2012?

When this year started, as sure as Cole McGrath would always have electricity flowing through his veins, I was sure I would be declaring “2011: The year of PlayStation 3”. With the system prices reasonable for most, a PlayStation exclusive lined up for nearly every month, and Xbox’s only counter offense being Gears of war 3; it sure seemed to be the clear saying. The entire plot was in line for Sony to sell more consoles and reclaim the spotlight in the core gamer conversation. (PS3)

Update Added information about the earthquake.

2012 you say? No where. The world ends.

nah, 2012's real purpose is when twisted metal ps3 releases, the end of the world is a less important matter.

I think this article is well written from the view of a Sony fan in the US. ;) You could have mentioned and expanded on the international and economic conditions of the world as applied to Sony. I'm pretty sure Kevin Butler's humor isn't in Japan and other non-US countries.

sony is not really going anywhere.

in america, xbox will be the average gamer's leading platform while the rest of the world plays the ps3.

sony's marketing team for the US division really sucks, but they still advertise.

part of the problem is that american retailers favors the xbox.
the ones Ive noticed are walmart, target, and best buy. while gamestop, toys r us, frys, and amazon are more equal.

u guys read the newspaper?
the weekly ads show sales of the xbox after xbox after xbox, and ps3 shows up once in a while.

while the other group advertise equally.
I dont know if its the retailers for sure, or if its coordinated with Ms/sony.

some walmarts and targets sold ps3 version of games like batman arkham city, while other stores didnt. but all of them carried the xbox version. at least in their retail department.

sony should do something about this trend or they will continously be outsold by the xbox in america.

Yes, I agree they should do something about it.

I think the Vita only stretches Sony's ability to deliver, even going into the new year.

Hopefully they don't mess it up, they can't afford 2 handheld flops.
