funny thing is, 360 outsold ps3 by 5,000 a week for a month and the ps3 outsells the xbox360 for the past 2 weeks by 10000 and makes up any lost ground

don't understand Japanese people.

They are more loyal to brand and quality than anything else.

i think in japan the price is still a big issue.

PS3 and 360 sales figure is not even worth mentioning in Japan. It only spikes when good games (for Japanese) comes out and rest of the time it's pretty dead.
Overall, 360 and PS3 is selling equally. I don't really see the point of console sales number on weekly basis. Some week ps3 up and other 360. Yes, it is important to push console when big games release but numbers are not sole factor for company go after. For a reason company make budget and goal for their fiscal year.

In my opinion 360 has initial price point advantage over PS3 and PS3 has brand name, reliability + blu-ray. Wii has different approach on gaming. It is not directly competing with other consoles.

At the end of this generation, PS3 will sell around 100M, 360 will be around 50M and Wii will be around 150 million which will take another 5 yrs. I gotta give credit to MS though, they are putting up very good fight against Sony this generation.

I haven't finished single player yet 'coz I am having so much fun on co-op :).

what u think ps3 will sell 100m at the end lol im a ps3 fangirl but i think its gonna be close between the 360 and ps3 even tho the 360 is a shoddy machine, the main worry is when the 720 is released what will it do to the ps3, only time will tell, and i sure hope these wii sales slow down, its not the best console after all, but then look at the ds it still sells like hotcakes even tho it's inferior to the psp

At the Time the 720(If named that way) is Released I think Sony Probably gon have something up their Sleeves Also. Short Terms you dont have Nothing To Worry about as "Sony Fangirl".

and

why people shouldnt want to buy the Wii and the DS ?

DS is inferior to the psp , what does that concludes to? I'd like you to be aware that People like the DS because of How innovative the system is .

If think you should make your comments in the Open zone next time if your going talking that rubbish.

Your comment was so lame I dont even Feel Like Putting my MAX SPEED!!!! signature.

"At the end of this generation, PS3 will sell around 100M"

Haaaa Haaaa Haaaa Haaaa Haaaa

Dude that is some serious wishful thinking, the wii for sure but not either the ps3 or the x360.

The only reason the ps2 sold so many was down to casual gamers, that mantle has now been passed on to the wii

My opinion is this

X360 42 million - then onto the new console
PS3 around the 50 million mark (only if we see a price cut sometime next year.
Wii - Every child, grannie and fat bird in the streets so it could be zillions (if there is such a number)

n4gzz3674d ago (Edited 3674d ago )

not my wish, just opinion. If it was for my wish then i wish to own both sony and MS company. But, what you said has good point :D

EyeShield 213674d ago

lmao , You could always ask the Make a Wish Foundation!

Im off to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
