After doing some analysis of historical console sales and pricing, effectu.com states it has become clear that the price of the Playstation 3 may have crossed over a very dangerous line. Basically, in the past, any console over $400 tanked. By far, the most success has come to consoles in the $190 to $300 range. Obviously there is inflation, but the cost of electronics has continuously declined over time, so console prices have remained fairly consistent. The question is will the price of the PS3 hinder its sales?
no surprise, but NES was smoking everyone back in the day.
*you have to click on the story to see the charts that i am talking about*
any console over 300$ (according to this article) will be doomed. So will that mean that both sony and MS will fall to nintendo. News like this means nothing to me. Its who delievers the games people want most. People will pay the price as long as they know they will be getting what they want.
I was talking to some Sony fan and he said PS3 was not expensive because of inflation ect. If you're going to have expensive hardware in a gaming console; it better be mostly for gaming. A $300 dollar price jump in 5 1/2 years is crazzy. flamer's STFU
Need you say anymore? no please don't. I thought i would hate XBL, so i got the core system, played it and soon i loved it, so i upgraded i have a choice that matches my needs, how can you not understand that.???????????
Everyone is saying this is the end for Sony, but I'm sure Sony will do fine this generation. I want Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to stay because more competition means more quality for us gamers.
