Has the Xbox 360 Price Cut Killed the Sony PS3?

Both Sony and Microsoft are both entering the crucial times when it comes to the sales of their Xbox 360 and PS3 games consoles. It looks as though Sony have already lost the battle before it has begun in the Japanese market, as sales of the Xbox 360 are far greater than that of the PlayStation 3.

There are a number of factors to this, and the major one has to be the constant price cuts of the Xbox 360. However no matter how well the sales of Microsoft's console are doing, it is still behind the sales figures of the Nintendo Wii and DS, as well as the Sony PSP.

Funny how these articles are great when they say something bad about the 360, but when they talk about the POS3, they are spam. I call that convenient. As they say, the truth hurts. The author has some great points. Bluray is dying and even price cuts won't save it. Blame the movie studios for stopping the HD war. Had they let it go on for another year and BD won it, hardware prices would have been cheaper. Phony paid a lot of money for BD to win and now you POS3 owners are paying for it. MS is making some very key moves, NXE being one of them. Netflix on Live and XNA alone are enough to raise eyebrows. And now Xbox outselling the POS3 in Japan, well that's impressive, even though numbers for both consoles are ugly there. Factor in Gears 2 and the very strong Fable 2 sales, then Left 4 Dead, and GTA 4 DLC, the Xbox is definitely crushing the competition.

Ps3 is still alive and well in Japan,Microsoft are down 2 million units in Japan-selling 3,000 more than Ps3 a week won't get you to the top anytime soon

same goes for NA. 360 has a 5 million lead so those few thousand extra consoles the ps3 sold didnt get them far either.

Not according to sales. The XBOX 360 price cuts have not really affected Playstation 3 sales at all.

PS3 is still beating x360 in europe despite price cut
In terms of Global sales ps3 and x360 are almost even weekly

cant believe that these lame articles are popping up every now and then

That article has so many things wrong that I wouldn't even know where to begin. Why do these people keep insisting that the 360 is doing better in Japan than the PS3. When the PS3 has 3 time the install base even though it started a year later.

Killing the ps3 is only a dream.

It can't ever happen.

But, the SECOND the PS3 drops price (which it will) it`ll sell very well. Considering the GOTY canadates that are exclusive to the system lately. Killzone2 is another game that will sell PS3s, Bluray is a HUGE advantage for the system to have in it aswell. People KNOW the PS3 is AWESOME, it`s just too expensive for alot of people. With that said it is still ENTIRELY worth it now. But average consumers don`t really know that. Big games are rollin out, Bluray is becoming standard, All that`s left is a price drop. So to answer the question, NO not at all. The 360 drop it`s price cause it was starting to get killed in sales month to month even in NA. When the PS3 decides to drop it`s price I can`t think of a reason it would be any different than it was before the 360 dropped price. People obviously are beginning to express a interest in the PS3, again that`s why the 360 decided to drop it`s price.

Edit: also LBP WILL garner alot of attention for the PS3 going into the holidays.

"It looks as though Sony have already lost the battle before it has begun in the Japanese market, as sales of the Xbox 360 are far greater than that of the PlayStation 3. "

The PS3 has like twice the install base of 360 in Japan. This is with the 360 being out a year longer.

Its like a paragraph that someone posted! Can I write up a paragraph and post it on a website and link to it as news too?

soljah4033d ago

HEY you guys. can some one explain to me what in the world is going on. Sony releases one little game LBP and all of a sudden i have never seen so many articles from game sites,blogs, forums,print media about how wonderful ms and powerful the xbox is. could all these xbox supporters be afraid of one little game with one little sackboy?

None of the consoles will be killed at this point they thrived even in harsh economic times. The install bases are to large for any of them to fail now so theres no need for flamebait of this magnitude.

First paragraph of this article reads ....

Both Sony and Microsoft are both entering the crucial times when it comes to the sales of their Xbox 360 and PS3 games consoles. It looks as though Sony have already lost the battle before it has begun in the Japanese market, as sales of the Xbox 360 are far greater than that of the PlayStation 3.

This dude missed the whole PS3 JP sales up 900% News it seems and aside from that PS3 never lost the lead over 360 in Japan.... It recently outsold 360 by like 33k.
