Sony releases offical sales numbers for June 2008. "PS3 Hardware Sales Exceed 311% Year-Over-Year"
Yea i hope sony take a good look at the number and see what sells system. If they continue to deliver AAA quality software they will continue being rewarded with very nice numbers. in my opinion i think the next system seller for sony will be lpb and maybe socoom. I don't really think resistance will sell hardware cause the people that bough the first will be the same people that will buy the second one, i also think the same for gears of war.
Sony needs to learn how to advertise ALL of their big exclusives like they did with MGS4. Uncharted, for example, deserved more sales. Same for Ratchet & Clank. They better give LBP, Naruto, Resistance 2, MotorStorm 2, and etc the treatment they deserve. They're already planning to do the same for InFamous.
Do you live in Vegas? If thats your picture in the avatar that is. I disagree with the advertising, Microsoft goes off every game they have and it just becomes annoying. Although I guess it works.
Have to disagree with you there. Sony pushed Uncharted pretty hard during the Holidays. I saw lots of commercials for it. Its a great game but its 8-10 hours with no co-op or multiplayer. Hard to justify a $60 purchase for that. I'm sure plenty of people rented it like I did.
Chad Warden is YouTube's most hated PS3 fanboy. lol
Sony did advertise Uncharted Drakes Fortune a lot. Uncharted sold over a Million Units in just a few months, so it did very well. Some people didn't buy Uncharted just because it was a Single Player game with no Multiplayer, but usually it's the Naughty Dog fans that end up buying Naughty Dog's Single Player games (like me). Single Player games usually end up selling less than games with Multiplayer anyways. Once the price on Uncharted drops some, I'm pretty sure that more people will be getting it because whenever you see "Developed by Naughty Dog" on a game case, it's a damn good game.
Some games are well worth it without the need to have Multiplayer. I just don't get why every game that comes out must also include Multiplayer option, it shouldn't be the defining point of the game, those are reserved for gameplay, story and presentation. Although Uncharted could have had that option, but its worth every dollar without it.
Online MP is a must for me.. It helps extend the games life so after beating the SP you can hop on the online MP and it will be a whole new experience.. You can keep playing the SP of Uncharted to try and get the treasures but you already know the story where the enemy is going to pop up from so its not as fun as the first one..
These chart numbers are rising higher than Gas Prices!
Yep everyone needs multiplayer games tacked on at the very end as an after thought. Ex. turok, darkness, timeshift, prey, condemned 2, etc...yeh, those MP games are filled people all the time /sarcasm
The Playstation Network now as over 10 million registers there. XBL just passed that number not so long ago. I wonder which service is better? I choose PSN, which one do you choose?
But great month for SOny keep it rolling. Does any one agree with me in saying fanboys cause more harm then good
I totally agree. bubbles for you, my friend.
I choose free service.
SONY Sales Exceed 311% Year-Over-Year MAYBE.. MS Sales Exceed -311% Year-Over-Year
Theres so definitive number? Worldwide sales were almost 13 million consoles back in March so I would like to see what their up too now.
Just wait for the quarterly earnings release. It'll come by the end of this month or the middle of next. Just check: http://www.sony.net/SonyInf...
Keep em games coming SONY!!!!!!!!.
Xbox Live has been around for 6 years, and PSN is already matching XBL's subscription numbers? XBL has both Xbox and Xbox 360 owners on it, so it speaks volumes to the percentage of PS3 owners who choose to go online.
Hell i registered a PSN ID and i dont even own a ps3 yet. i dont think the number is entirely accurate
1st u have to owen a ps3 and register from ur ps3 as a master account, second if u r register from ps3.com website u need to put ur Ps3 serial or a psp serial.
While I partly agree with you, the service is a great thing but also think about the people who've made multiple accounts to access other regions stores.
PS3 is worth the purchase, unlike the fixme dvd player that is a lemon.
every person that came to my house and tried out uncharted was blown away. just about each person thought the fmv was still rolling when it was game time. the game also got great reviews and sony did not ride the reviews. this news come at a perfect time. Sony had a good E3 showing. the video store launched flawlessly. PSN portable id. positive reviews from their behind the closed doors showing for upcoming games and comic con around the corner. they really need to press harder on the marketing.
I don't know how xbox live works, but i know that i've got multiple accounts on my ps3...i bet others do as well
As stated while back sony counts the IP address not how many screen names one PS3 has.
I've got 6 psn accounts on my ps3 shared between members of my household
are the going multiplatform (hint PS3) ? as Square Enix did the 360 (FFXIII= multiplatform :xbox360/PS3) is Alan Wake also going multiplatform?
Alan Wake is being published by Microsoft, so it's no way that it could come to the PS3.
correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I smell some 360 fanboys coming on the scene Seriously though, the multiplatcorm speculation needs to stop. Name me one time that Sony fanboys mentioned Halo 3 going mulitplatform or Gears of War. coming blank?
PS3 did amazing in June in the U.S. The PS3 even sold more than what VG Chartz predicted. Xbox 360 sales rose a "little" bit by just a few thousand, but the PS3 did VERY well. I expected PS3 sales to be around 350,000 for June, but no where near 400,000. And just think, Metal Gear Solid 4 was just the beginning of the flood of highly anticipated system seller PS3 exclusives. I wonder what Aaron Greenberg has to say about PS3 sales now.
He's probably too busy eating hot dogs to notice.
MGS4 has helped, but SONY needs to do a lot more to keep the numbers at this level throughout the year. I say if they bundled LBP or Resistance 2 with a custom ps3 for that specific game then that would spike sales.
Sony good job, now release home plz.
"For God's sake man,you got to canceal our FF13 release to 2010 and brind right NOW! I will pay x3 times more, it is our only hope to hold then,cuz Ps3 and even Nintendo is owning us in US!Jesus Crist,do help us"
either way an rpg wont do that much damage in the US.
lol @ Allowen
Wouldnt this now mean xbox360 is in last place world wide since wii is obviously 1st world wide just now taking US, PS3 is last in US but still 2nd worldwide in hardware and where does that leave the 360? its not looking good, but we will see how this holiday season will pan out.
that sony could get there act together. now they need to give an actual release date for home. ps. no more delays
if i was broke and that was only choice . but i aint so i have a ps3 . not saying that only broke people would buy it am just saying why would you buy it . its a poor mans computer to me .
I've never questioned my purchase of this beautiful machine for a nano-second. Much like the cleaning of a house - it gets dirtier when you start - but eventually it cleans up nicely. I cannot wait for Resistance 2 - I can't wait for the scary sound of air raid/nuclear bomb horns to fill my living room when it starts up!
keep up the good work. watch out MS
Honestly, I could really draw anything from that. Is the PS3 part of the gaming division making a profit yet. I really don't understand this year to year percentage or month to month percentage. I don't know why that just don't say whether they had a profit or a lost.
compared to A (past) and B (present). Will have to wait until the fiscal year is over to see if they made a profit, increased the amount of expenses, or trimmed the amount in the red down.
The spring to ready to be released. Watch out M$, Sony aren't even out of second gear yet. Third gear is going to hurt you and your bots. Sleep with one eye open.
