Europeans have clearly choosen ps3 over 360. Even with the one year head start and the higer price point sony machine still out selling microsoft platform. I must say that the europeans are the smarter consumers. They clearly see the value of the ps3 and what it has to offer. Look at gta lifetime numbers ps3 is ahead of the pack followed by the 360.

Fishy Fingers3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

European gamers have more freedom in some respects, generally people seem to have loyalty to manufacturers in their territory. Japan favouring Sony/Nintendo, US and Microsoft. Europeans aren't tied into any such constraints, the less chance of bias towards a producer may allow them to make a more informed judgement over the purchases.

Could be wrong, but that's the impression I get.

The gaming GOD3749d ago

In Europe, the 360 had more than 1 year's head start over the ps3. When the ps3 came out in NA in 2006, Europe had to wait about 7 months later (I forgot exactly how long)

Statix3749d ago (Edited 3749d ago )

Following your logic of nationalistic Americans, the Nintendo Wii wouldn't be dominating both the 360 and PS3 in the US, then, would it? Nor would the PS2 have dominated last generation in the States.

I just think that the reason Microsoft is having better success this generation is because they've done a very good job marketing the XB360 for the US audience.

Yeah, the PS3 is way more expensive in Europe than the 360. I think it's the region with the biggest price disparity between the two. The PS3 also didn't launch in Europe until March 2007. It was actually more than a year behind the 360.

Sega Saturn3749d ago

Europeans have a long history of being anti-American. This sentiment has increased further since Afghanistan and Iraq.

thewhoopimen3749d ago

Sure it would! Americans like walmart bottom prices and the Wii fits that loyalty XD

bosels113749d ago

to sega saturn - thats it, PS3 outsells 360 in EU because of Iraq and Afghanistan. BS! I personally dont buy anything because of what country makes it. I know some people do, but not the majority - I love where I live, but am not delusional to think that because I live in the US that its the best country in the world - because its not. Our govt sucks, and we are one of the biggest bullies their are.

HateBoy3748d ago

Omg you idiots, it has nothing to do with the fact that a lot of people hate america. PS3 sells more in Europe because its an established and trusted trademark, because people have grown up with the ps1 and ps2 and because Sony advertises a lot (like Nintendo) while the 360 is absent. It has little or nothing to with being smart (though we are quite clever I have to say) or hating americans.

the price again in europe and sony still most likely will drop in price by at least 50 this fall.

and knowing the ps3 outsold the 360 by 130 thousand a week last year during the holidays with barely any games and the 360 with all its big hitters, i can only expect the ps3 to outsell the 360 by double that this holiday season.

so yes, i expect the ps3 to outsell the 360 in europe this holiday season by about 250,000-300,000 more a week in europe.
and not to mention, blurays emminent victory over hd dvd, so all in all, the ps3 is going to cruise in europe and there is nothing microsoft can do about it.

hotshot1273749d ago

is'nt it supposed to come out today or something.....?

Overr8ed3749d ago

Cyrus3653749d ago

Playstation Man3749d ago
