since GT5 has been released in Japan and it would undoubtedly boost HW sales
PLUS sales of PS3 in EU will also rise significantly. same goes to US
However as for x360 it would only be NA where it would excel and it would be beaten by massive(even bigger) margins by the ps3 in EU and JAPAN
Ps3 actually outsold xbox 360 for two weeks in a row according to VGChartz. !!!
week ending 1st december(worldwide):
Xbox 360 365,265
the 360 will hit 24 million userbase and then stop growing. the PS3 has a 120 million+ userbase to sell to.
1) It took PS2 only 10 weeks to achieved the same volume that the PS3 did in 57 weeks.
2) I'm a fan of PS2 (150+ games) but it doesn't mean I am loyal to PS3.
3)Of that 120 million + userbase, how many will be disappointed when they found out their PS3 are not bc with their collection of PS2 games.
ps3 offers the most backward compatibilty of all the 3 consoles. 60gb can still be found if you look hard enough plus you prob still have your ps2. So wats ur backward compatibility point again??? ur jst a hater, a ps3 hater at that maybe one of sony execs hurt ur feelings or sumthin lol. some of you take this way to seriously
Your by far one of the most pitiful souls on this website. Your like a crackhead desperately looking for loose ps3 sales lost in the sofa.
wow never expected a PS2 owner to hate the PS3. looks like you deserve a PS2. infact, go out and buy yourself a 360. you'll be very happy once MGS4, GT5, God of War III, Socom, FFXIII comes out.
the same arguments every day
Microsoft said last week that already sold 1 million units of mass effect?They r overstating the facts.just like they say they sold 14 million xbox360s,without stating the fact that probably about 2 to 3 miliion are people buying them again because the crappy hardware.
Whoa, the 360 better get their act together because if this keeps up....the ps3 will catch up in the year 2056.
yea 2008 isnt far off
How do you expect to catch up with 8 million 360's more out there?
You know the PS3 then have to outsell the 360 with about 340k a month for a straight 2 years long.
Won't happen. The PS3 just had its peak again with the pricedrop. MS will have the 360 dropped in price also. I bet they'll even hit with the hammer just before Christmas if they want to do major damage to the PS3.
Wasn't the PS3 supposed to outsell the 360 from it's launch??? We're a year later now and it's just about on par world wide. While the 360 is ahead 8 million units. mmhhhhhh
what made you think that ps3 sales will not double in 2008 with KZ2,RESISTANCE 2,MOTORSTORM 2, GT5,MGS4 and FF13.
The ps3 didnt have a price drop
The price drop took effect in October. the 60gig was slashed to 499$ . the 80 gig became the 60gig in NOVEMBER since the 60gigs were sold out.
400$ 40 gig ps3 was a new addition.
The ps3 has outsold x360 in WW sales for most part after its launch
They arent gonna be this close for that much longer... I have both consoles and I dont want the 360 to fail and I want it to succeed as the Hardcare machine it is. I want it to outsell the Original Xbox by alot(even though I don't see it going past double of last generation....50 million. I doubt even that... is this is all it can sale after Bioshock, Halo and MASS EFFECT RIGHT IN A ROW.... this is the biggest 3 games IN A ROW this close together.... that will ever be on the 360. Halo is really what sums up the 360(unfortunately). Owning a PS3 also I just know it wont win. This PS3 is soooo much more functional, pretty, innovative, diverse, beautiful, quiet, reliable, futureproof, valuable for your money, high tech, exciting, deserving(Screw the RROD...Blu ray and Cell are impressive and the games they are making....not 4 360 Sci Fi AAA games) I blevie 2008 is really gonna do it for the PS3. No wait. We all KNOW IT IS. But guesse what? In reality it doesnt have to DESTROY thre competition in 2008 to win... as long as the gap doesnt keep growing. And honestly, PS3 isnt even close to half way through its life. By the end of 2007 the PS3 will have sold over 8 million. Easy. If it just so,d as good as this year for the next 9 years Sony would sale 80 million consoles...but guess what... its gonna sale ALOT more than only 7-8 million in most of those years. Althogh it may not break the PS2's record(although it might we dont know) it's safe to say that the PS3 will EASILY break 100 million consoles again. The PS1 only sold 3.5 million in its first year and went on to sell 110 million. The PS3 has sold 7-8 million in its first. The PS2 sold 10 million in its first. PS3 is on the road to victory.
And the PS3 is gonna have quite a few more million sellers by early 2008.. Ratchet sales boosted alot this month... Uncharted will do it. COD4 and AC...wARHAWK AND hEAVENLY sWORD ARE more than halfway there.
haha theMART you are uneducated and sound ignorant. The PS3 is already 150$ more expensive with only its first years games library...still alot of good games though. Realize theMART... THAT THE XBOX is NOT A PLAYSTATION 3. PEOPLE WANT THE PLAYSTATOIN 3... AND U WILL FIGURE THIS OUT MORE AND MORE AS THE YEARS PASS AND PRICE DROPS WITH ALL THE AWESOME GAMES? Micrsoft already said they couldnt drop prices but instead bundled 2 FREE GAMES. They STILL COULLDNT WIN. They ARENT SONY. AND WILL NEVER BE NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY WISH HAHAHAHA. PS3 ISNT JUST GONNA WIN. THE ARE GONNA CRUSH THE JUNKBOX., Watch u are gonna see the 360 sales even sart declining as the PS3 sales continue to rise.... JUST AS THE ANALYTS SAID. I cant wait for the Playstatoin Network in 2008. The SONY CEo said that it would speciafially COMPETE WITH XBOX LIVE AND iTUNES. Sony is ready to go to war my friend. You don't want to go up against Sony in a long marathon because you will be RAPED TO THE CORE. PSN is gonna have PS HOME, IN GAME MESSAGING ,CHAT, INVITES AND EVERYTHING NEXT YEAR HAHAHA. DOWNLOADABLE MOVIES AND EVEN MUSIC IN MP3 FORMAT. Sony is in this thing for the win. I hopw u understand they just destroyed Microsofts November... Sony doesnt have to be doing this well already to still win, Microsft REALLY needs to keep increasing that gap. ITS NEVER GONNA HAPPEN AGAIN. HAHA
8 million is NADA compared to the 100+++ million the PS2 has sold. We'll see
firstknight and mart dont realize is that the 360 will hit 24 million userbase and then stop growing. the PS3 has a 120 million+ userbase to sell to. Where is 360 expanding it's market?? it's already behind the wii in total sales, and that's cause it's a cheap toy. If we've seen such a massive upsurge in sales now that the Ps3 has hit $399, what do you think will happen when it hits $299?? that's right xbot, GAME OVER for MS.
despite all your dreams and delusions the 360 is selling to the same people the first one did. Once it hits that magic 24 mil number it will run out of gas. The first one did and this one will too. I have history and fact backing me up, what do you have? speculation?? lmao
How many of the 120+ are now playing Nintendo Wii's and do not own a PS3?...I know a few. Also I was part of that 120+ install base(before trading in for X-Box games)and I don't own a PS3.
I'm sorry but those 120+ million arguments/theories really don't hold any water.
You sony fanatics never cease to astound me with your twisted irrational train of thought.
ahhh... pretty funny really.. you know with the ps3 having NOOOOOOOOOOOO games.. like none at all.. no AAA games, no games anybody wants, no games that are selling well... yet... it still beats the 360 in worldwide sales. Hmmmm.. no let me think.. what will happen when there are games that people want.. that people have been waiting for... hmmmm lets see.. metal gear solid 4.... final fantasy 13.... Gran Turismo 5.... multi million seller franchises... i wonder what will happen then.. hmmmm
360 already had its price drop with its Arcade sku, if the 40GB PS3 counts as a price drop that is. Either way, Don't count on MS dropping its price too soon. They aren't stupid. They just can't build quality hardware, but they are still cuthroat and smart...
is that they actually have a job in the industry (laughs hard) and know any thing about the industry.....lol this guy actually thinks he makes games...lol
and hes calling others idiots? lol
Arnt ya a little tored of wating..
Wait 2006 then wait 2007 and now wait 2008.
just enjot the console And shut up.
You look like fools when u say that.
I dont know what devolopers will think.
All Ps3 exclusive havnt sold 600K ??
Uncharted, HS, Liar, Warhawk. Alot of money was waste here.
What do u think devolopers will think about that ha?
Do the math..Money counts
RATCHET at 500k
Uncharted at 320k
HS at 600k
WARHAWK also sold 500k
all these in terms of WW sales
all these titles will each sell at least 2 million copies over the next year, as more people buy PS3's the attach rate will go up dramatically. It's the law of averages, once a phenomenom like Final Fantasy comes it will make 360 attach rates look like a joke, not to mention first day sales. All in all all these flamewars on here and everywhere else on the net are pretty pointless for the first two to three years of this generation. That's how long it will take to see just who is pulling ahead. Xbots that brag about the current 360 userbase act as if the one for the first xbox wasn't EASILY double what it is now. IF AND WHEN the 360 passes last generations numbers wake me up and tell me the story, until then those acting like the war is already won only make themselves look like ignorant 5 year olds. THE TRUTH of the matter is, Sony and the Playstation ARE A GLOBAL brand while MS and the xbox are not. Try as hard as they may, ultimately their ABYSMAL sales numbers in Japan and somewhat better but still soft numbers in Europe prove this to be all too true. With that being said the only thing the Ps3 is competing with is it's pricepoint. Once that comes down to mass market levels every xbot from here to Redmond's jaw will drop at how fast the numbers will shoot up. Personally I believe Sony purposely started slow out of the gate to see who their real allies and enemies are. The xbots have definitely revealed their true colors and come out of the woodwork this time around. Now that Sony has taken off the disguise of a once great market leader who has fumbled the ball and is starting to show their selling power when they get down to business you are starting to see alot of yellow bellies sing a VERY DIFFERENT tune about the PS3. You can see the change in attitude at KOtaku,IGN,Gamespot and so on. They KNOW, just like Bungie,Bioware,Rare and every other developer who will eventually end up ditching the MS party train if they haven't done so already. It's only a matter of time, once PS3 leads the market again all these dumb fanboy arguments will die down and we can all go back to playing beyond once again.
And you that is good dont ya..
There are exclusive. Not multi. Should sell more.
GOW sold 4 mill.
Halo 4 Mill.
Bioshock sold good.
Mass effect is gonna sell more.
Im not against any console but you have to look at the facts here.
games cost money. But we dont know how this will effect the devoloper.
Lets say I make A car for one million and you sell that car for me for just 500,000..How do u think that will make me feel?
Like I said..Money counts
RESISTANCE sold 2m
MOTORSTORM sold 2m too
AC and COD 4 will reach 1m each next week as well
Uncharted,r7C wil also reach million copies in their lifetime
face it tanod, the ps3 is not going to pass 360 total install base for a very long time if that, grow up, get ur dummy out of ur mouth and buy a 360 sucker
Your right Multigamer and anyone who passed 4th grade math knows it.
Just take his bubbles, and like his other 3 accounts, he'll be down to 1 again soon enough.
the ps3 dont have to sell 350k for 2 years.
have a look to japan/europe when GT5, MGS4 and FF13 will release.
2 millins ps3 in 1 monts and u got owned :-) i aint easy for the box!!
The only reason why motorstorm and resistance sold that becuz they were bundled.. Thats All.
U know what I say to ppl like u??
Time will tell.
First the say that ps3 will destroy the 360 at launch In terms of graphic..Time did tell.
ps3 will run at 120 fps..Time did tell.
Ps3 will outsell 360 when it launch..Time did tell.
All I have been hearing is wait and wait.
Then u bring up 3 games..KZ2, MGS4 and FF..
Like I said im not against any console here but I look at the facts..I enjoy the ps3 with my friend and I enjoy my 360 at home.
Ps3 is losing money..Thats why the ps2 is out there..If it did well then they had to kill the ps2 so ppl will buy ps3..Thats how things work.
Im expecting Big year in 2008. Shocking news.
MS is doing well..And they will have surprises. I Know that somthing big is coming but I wont say it yet.
my words will be based on proofs
How about you elaborate on your constant hatred for the PS3, XGamer? Could you possibly have a single viable reason as to why you must troll around on the internet and sprew vitriolic fanboy vomit all over the webpage?
Allow me to formulate a guess as to why you feel it is absolutely necessary to be so scorned towards Sony supporters. Just guessing here but I'm going to assume that either you were a Dreamcast adopter or a first generation Xbox adopter and you didn't like being on the losing end of a console format so when the 360 jumped up a year ahead of the competition (well...why wouldn't they. they practically abandoned their first console and left their userbase in the dust for an entire year before they released the 360) you decided to head on in to the gaming store and hump that green/white box all the way back to your car in some type of triumphant dance of victory.
Then the PS3 comes along and starts to throw in some competition in to the mix. Assuming your a true gamer and not some corporation whore you probably wanted one but couldn't afford the price which made you a sad panda, but you still had your 360 so you said....hey....who the hell needs a PS3 right? 360 has a year headstart....PS3 will never catch up...
So, after 6-7 months of lackluster PS3 sales you start to feel good about your purchase again, but then the rumblings of certain games start popping up on the horizon and you start to feel a little envious. Sure, MGS4, FFXIII, and Little big Planet are long ways off, but the sting of knowing that your console will never have them still stings just a little bit. Then you start seeing the newer games pop up like Heavenly Sword, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Ratchet & Clank, Warhawk, Unreal Tournament 3, and Haze. Then you see the interesting PSN games like Everyday Shooter, Super Stardust HD, Blast Factor, Pain!, High Velocity Bowling, and you think....maybe the PS3 doesn't suck SO bad.
BUT! Your rabid fanboyism won't allow you to continue thinking that way. Oh no, you must viciously justify your purchases like an animal protecting its food so you growl, yell, scream, and spit at everything that might challenge your claim that your purchase is superior.
Am I getting close yet?
Look, you can either get along with the fans of other consoles or you can continue to look like a douchenozzle in front of the entire internet. Your choice pal, but just remember that you may have acted prematurely in how you have treated other people. You never know the future now do you? The PS3 may begin outselling the 360 by large margins WW in 2008 and then what will you do? Will you come and apologize for treating other people badly? OR if the PS3 doesn't outsell the 360 will you come in here like a jerk and thumb your nose at everyone else and further fortify the ideal that your nothing but a corporate tool who salivates over his beloved console like Gollum does over that damned ring?
How about you sit on this thought for a while.
I imagine that it's more like XGamer simply wants the the best console on the market. And that happens to be 360.
I think sony may have shoved blu-ray a little too far up your a*s Ashta.
lol good one ashta. I like the gollum reference.
If its announced next week that Microsoft BUYS Sony could you please give me your spin on it I would love to hear it...
Or what if the PS3 only sells 1000 consoles a month worldwide compared to 360s 1 million per month next year what would your spin be on that.
Please let us all know, I love reading your comments even if they are getting a bit repeatitive....
Please be a man and be calm. I know the real xbots are getting pissed than the PS3 is selling almost 500k per week..and the wii has sold over 2 million more units total than the xbox 360....just take it like a man and deal with it....the xbox 360 is about to get owned in 2008 and got to third place...
With the WAIT..
U realy sounds like a fool when u say that.
Just enjoy ur console.
You have been ownd ever since the ps3 got launched.
Every thing u said didnt come true.
So plz dont say anything that wil be used against u later..Like always.
Just enjoy ur console..Everyone.
I am hearing this from all SONY fans over and over again (like a broken record:
"... PS3 will own 2008.."
By jove, i REALLY hope the PS3 makes great strides in 2008, because if it doesn't it will have failed beyond doubt and all the little sony monkeys and anti MS/360 trolls here on N4G will look like complete idiots.
I wonder ... will they say "bu.. bu.. but WAIT until 2009?"
2008 is the time for PS3 to put up or shut up.
That's the truth and you can't spin it any other way.
Pressure is on, PS3..
Hardware sales need to come up
Software sales need to come up
Attach rate needs to come up.
I cant wait to see the ps3 pass the 360 in sales just to see some of you guys happy. Wait, if that happens the 360 owners will be sad. Nobody is happy. This sucks
wii and nintendo own the console war... ps3 barely beat microsoft worldwide..once that price cut loses steam i expect sony to be back in last place worldwide as usual and next year the wii will drop in price to make things worse probably around the release of smash brothers
and when those 360's owners that dont want to buy there 3rd RROD machine Sony will take this lead and keep it till the end of this generation
I guess another troll thread was to be expected!
Of course at the present rate of sales if would take forever for the PS3 to catch the 360 in terms of units sold. But the whole point on analysing data is to spot trends and try and predict based on that.
Its actaully suprising to me that worldwide monthly PS3 sales have just matched the 360 already given the slew of top notch 360 AAA's that have been driving sales on the 360. Looking at titles next year , and given the momentum that the PS3 platform already has, its not unreasonale for an unbiased analysis to suspect that PS3 will start to significantly outsell 360 world wide. The critical market here, is the NA market. A healthier adoption of the platform here would certainly tip the scales, as its the only market where 360 outsells the PS3 by a significant ratio. Its all guesswork of course but its not unreasobnable to see the PS3 catching the 360 installed base and supassing it in 2009 if the current trends continue.
Of course, neither machine stands a chance of matching the Wii, particularly if they get their supply situation together, but that machine is aimed a whole different demographic. Its like comparing the sales of Porche's and Farrari's to sale of a Mini.:)
Please don't flame me for an honest view. As an owner of all machines I have no vested intrest in any one over another, and will be quite content if they all do well. The people who troll these threads with an unhealthy alliegence to one company or another, are destroying the site for those of us who have a genuine intrest in games and would like a serious discussion with like minded people...
"Its actaully suprising to me that worldwide monthly PS3 sales have just matched the 360 already "
It only did that ON THE BACK OF A MOTHERF***** $100.00 PRICEDROP. All pricedrops lose steam, you know, don't expect it to hang as close to 360 WW numbers next month.
"As an owner of all machines I have no vested intrest in any one over another" -----> That more bull caca from you. You are another Sony fanboy hiding with long "articulate" posts under pretenses of neutrality. I have no issues with fans of either system, but false pretenses of "neutrality" piss me off.
How Pathetic you are - your tiny intellect means you must gain some modecum of pleasure from insulting and flaming honest gamers and users of this site, simply because we refuse to subscribe to your unholly allegience with Microsoft.
My post was entirely objective, and the only thing you may have taken as issue with was the fact I stated worldwide sales of the PS3 had matched the 360. But thats the very story who's thread we are commenting on, or have you not bothered reading the thread and simply enterd it looking to pick another fight over nothing?
For the record, I have owned every gaming system that has ever been made since the inception of video gaming (yes I'm now 43), including many I have had to import as they have not been released outside of Japan. My passion for gaming meant I left a long sucessful career with IBM in order to develop video games over 16 years ago and have since been a developer on many AAA titles for all formats and machines for most of the largest publishers (including Sony and Microsoft). Examples of my work can be found on all of todays current gen machines and there are several titles yet to be announced that I have worked on. I guarentee you will have played at least one game I helped to develop.
I currently have 120+ titles on the 360, 14 titles on the PS3, and 4 on the Wii. If theres a bias there, its towards the 360.
In many ways I DO find the 360 a dissapointment, but not in terms of the gameplay its deleiverd to me, and thats the main point of owning a games machine after all.
What turns me away from the 360 despite my enjoyment of the games, is the proliferation of pathetic b*tching little boys like yourself, who have a infantile grasp on reality and a stuck up sense of superiority that can only arise from serious insecurities and 'small d*ck' syndrome.
Your post, like your entire personality, is utterly purile, and I reject it totally.
A+ dude. I agree completely. At times like this I just relax and respect the fact I used my brain to make my decisions...
Add me PSN: CrashSharc
But "the proliferation of pathetic b*tching little" sony fan "boys like yourself, who have a infantile grasp on reality and a stuck up sense of superiority that can only arise from serious insecurities and 'small d*ck' syndrome" don't turn you away from the ps3? If you are neutral as you say, there is childish stuff like this from both sides and if it does bother you that much it would turn you from both consoles. You are either lying about being neutral or you are very thin skinned to let fanboys drive you away from a console you say you enjoy.
very nice..the Boxes were sold only with Bundles(forza,marvel)and thats the reason why Boxes are at 13 millions..hääh???
..come on, next round!!!!
What I find even more interesting is people like The Engineer grow even more intelligent by the day. Its good to see adults retort in an adult way... bubbles for you bud.
XBOX seems to be the clear winner of the two main formats (X360 & PS3) but that will change here soon, we love us our MGS & Kindom Hearts, once PS3 brings those the game is over. I have both formats but as much as i love my x360 the potential of PS3 is undeniable.
ps3 sales only sony knows theres no sales tracking in the eu now that have all their numbers why,well ps3s are sold through sony centres etc free with their 1080p lcd tv,s top of range also aol.co.uk gives away a free ps3 when you sign up to their internet service and various phone deals, this deal is also available from b.t,virgin,vodafone etc
now as chart track etc etc do not get this information how many more could there be going into peoples homes without been counted
well aol in the uk alone rumour has it has bought in excess of 100,000 units on its first order now with sony centres which there are many through out the eu not releasing figures at all and mobile contract phone orders, aol as well just to mention a few what are the real numbers
sony is the only one with this information no one else
it could run into millions over a year with lcds been the biggest selling electrical house hold must have
here is the funniest thing:
EVERY sony fanboy comes on here and says how unreliable and inaccurate all the VGCHART numbers are when the 360 outsells the ps3 by like 250,000 consoles, yet when numbers are released by VGCHARTS showing the ps3 outsold the 360 worldwide by 3,375 consoles, they all raise their voice and say "see, we told you the ps3 would crush the 360!!!!"....
you sony droids are absolute idiots. stick to your guns, because i can go back and find a comment from just about every single one of you that say VGCHARTS is completely inaccurate.....but now all of a sudden it is the most reliable source when it shows the ps3 beat the 360 worldwide by 3,375....idiots LMFAO
here's your new motto : PLAY BEHIND
you got it
I don`t go by numbers i look at facts.
FACT: PS3 has`t released any of the big guns. And what big guns they are!
FACT: 360 has released all the big guns, and all there`s left for 2008 is some exclusives that not many people heard of.
I`ve been playin the 360 since launch (on my 4th one now) and i got a ps3 a week ago. More and more 360 owners will do that, cos alot of the 360 owners are not fanboys, they are gamers, and when a good game comes out they`l want to play it.
PS3 417,534 (-) 7,194,575
X360 414,159 (-) 14,558,327
what year is the 360 on?
what year is the ps3 on?
now lets look at the competition the 360 had its first year.......ok thats done. the ps3 had the wii and 360. so put your biased thoughts to the side, the ps3 is doing very well.
not to mention the lack of games the ps3 had for about a year.
when vgcharts shows 3,375 ps3s over boxes, they mean 37,750..
take that :-)
I was thinking the exact same thing. The 360 had no competiton for a year and one blockbuster title w/i that year, that still marks the highlight of the system. The PS3 came out of the box costing a million dollars, faced BRUTAL press and media, and hardly had games, YET has managed to rocket to 7+ million sold in little over a year? And...have had a handful of games in the 1st year that are simply remarkable and unlike anything else on other systems. I don't know about some of you, but that looks like real progress and production to beat the odds. Not to mention the PS2 userbase hasn't even gotten started yet, due in part to the PS2's ridiculously LONG legs. I think people that are beating the drums of "Sony can't (fill in the blank)" really need to reassess practical reality and their own convictions. This brand is still the one to beat.
Sony need look no further than themselves to lose or win this "war". If they keep the huge variety of games coming as they have for so many years, with the coming pricedrops and frequent FW updates - it's simply unstoppable.
3K? lol... funny... but A) as we saw yesterday on the NPD vs VGCharts comparison they can be off by as much as 150K.... also, not every retail store data is collected and included on NPD let alone VGCharts... and even if this was true... the PS3 needs to do a lot more than 3K+ than the xbox 360 a week... (12K) to catch up to it during this century...
Here, I'll help you with the math...
PS3 installbase: 7,194,575
PS3 weekly sells: 417,534
XBox 360 installbase: 14,558,327
XBox 360 weekly sells: 414,159
Xbox 360 total lead: (14,558,327 - 7,194,575) = 7,363,752
PS3 hardware weekly lead: 3,375
PS3 hardware monthly lead: 13,500
At this rate;
* Numbers of months required for the PS3 to catch up: 545.5
* Number of years required for the PS3 to catch up: 46
ohh yeah... XBox 360 owners should be worried! shaking on their boots...
Also, it's interesting to note that the xbox 360 only have 1 year lead against the XBox 360... and yet the Xbox 360 have a 2:1 installbase compared to the xbox 360... this means that the PS3 have gain 0 against the xbox 360 installbase. In other words; each console is selling like 7,000,000 a year...
And let's not forget that A) Sony just had a price drop.. B) one of Sony's SKU is cheaper than the xbox 360 elite... and yet.. is not dramatically selling more consoles than the xbox 360... I can't wait to see what happends when Microsoft drop the price of the xbox 360...
hey man. i agree with your post. but do you really think the ps3 can maintain those sales after the holidays. i mean with MGS4 delayed until april or june. and now KZ2 and LBP delayed until sept. i see those number going down after x-mas. and maybe pick back up when MGS4 release.
edit: wow i got a disagree. not surprised. now that uncharted and R&C released. now sonyfanboy can't say when these games come out. the 360 will be dead.
yeah i guess you could look at it that way. or you can look at it the real way. it took the ps3 1 year, two price drops,exclusives that flop in sales(and fail to move systems as sonyfanboy said it would). just to reach half of what the 360 installed base is. yet it took the 360 two years, 1 price drop after 20 months,sh*t talk from everyone about the RRoD. and yet it still managed to outsell the ps3 with a price drop. yes i can spin it too.
Or you could simply look at it in terms of it took the Xbox360 2 years plus Halo 3 to get to 14Mil. Yet the PS3 took one year with "No games" a higher retail price and constant bad mouthin from the Media and people like yourself yet it managed 7Mil. Now lets concider the prospects when LBP,KZ2,MGS4,GT5,Tekken6 etc are released. Now how do you see the future looking honestly? Am not sayin the PS3 will surpass the Xbox360 next year even though i do see it as a possibility. However it's retarded statments like yours that are exactly whats wrong with this so called "Console war" grow up an be realistic. I know everything in this world is open to interrpetation but sometimes we just need to stop an see things as they really are and not how we want them to be.
Game on gamers...
ah nice numbers there baldstar... yet you fail to realize something... the ps3 has nooooo games.. none.. no msg4, no ff13, no gt5.. what do you think the numbers will be then?? you think they will stay the same.. hahahahahaha.. ur too funny.. sell your stock now man.. they did show you that in economics class right.. buy low SELL HIGH... or should i say tell mommy and daddy to sell their stock
I thought that Sony said once the PS3 launched the world would stop on it's axis and reverse rotation. I figured that the 360 would be the dreamcast by now. Just think about it. The 360 being the doomed underdog had done well for it's self considering it's "last gen" (that what Sony said).
It's funny how those 360fanboys are saying that the PS3 won't be able to pass the 360 next year, last time I checked it only took less then a year for the Wii to surpass the 360. And the way things are looking right now it looks like the PS3 is about to do the same thing next year.
Right now things are looking up for SONY all three consoles(PSP, PS2 and PS3) are selling very well in all regions. All SONY has to do is keep the momentum, and I believe they will with all the games that they have coming out next year plus another price cut on the way in Q2 08 they will be able to out sell the 360 very easily.
you Sony guys need to think about getting of N4G and buying games.
Go to your mommy and cry for the "big bad Sony"!!!
Winning the BlueRay war... now kicks ass of Xsh1t...
But don't worry! You can always use your Xbox to have a crap on it!!
What, there was a bluray war??? did i miss something???
Yes, you are missing a lot! Stop f*cking your momma all the time, get a life dude...
looks like a year head start wasn't enough...
If my memory serves me correctly I remember you PS3/SONY fans saying that the PS3 would take over the 360 this year(2007). As of today a whole year later the PS3 has barely cut into half of the 360's install base.
Now realistically the PS3 would have to out sell the 360 by 583,000+ consoles a month for the next 12 months foe you whole SONY owns next year thing to work out.
Do you even care that the PS3's games still pale in comparison to the 360. Does it even strike your imagination that Developers are investing into the 360 more because of the hard core fan base. Have you noticed that in SONY land (Japan) the 360 has been totaly murdered but still keeps pace with software sales.
Stop hating so much. Go out and help the PS3 win. Buy some f__CKing games!!! It makes no sense that UNCHARTED or any other games has flopped. 6 million PS3's COME oN PEOPLE get with it.
I'll buy UT3 and and go half on Uncharted with my brother? Play them on my bros system? and buy more 360 games in the meantime? All this "wait" talk? Why?
I will say one thing though, look past all these numbers, what the number is really saying is that.
1) PS3 is not doom and gloom.
2) People still have a desire for the PS3
3) GT Prologue and SingStar will push this gap even wider, X360's big guns all out already for the year.
4) Now if you think the PS3 won't gain more grounds th
