Although the Playstation 3 is in last place, the situation may not be as dire as many think.
lol these guys said the same thing in 2007, 2008.
At that time, PS3 didn't have dozens of exclusives, 360 hadn't had 2 years without any AAA exclusive except Gears 2 and PS3 wasn't costing twice as much as 360 while selling the same worldwide. Bottom line : any PS3 price cut now and it's back like before september, with the PS3 crushing the 360 in worldwide sales, except the war is over this time since MS has already had its price cut.
they didnt say that in 2006! because that time it was too early to say anything but no one had doubt that ps3 will be the winner in the end of this gen!! so these guys were right they didnt say 2007 will be the year of ps3!!! u r just jealous xbot!! ur company screwed u so badly, they r ripping u off with $50 each year to just play online! ur hardware is failing on u every few months, ur console graphics is inferior to ps3 and the exclusive games majority r major FLOPS!!!! just quit gaming and do us GAMERS a big favor!! ohh and dont forget to bring with u the bot army on XBL!
-Price drop this/next month -want a family game but don't want shovelware? Buy a PS3 and LittleBigPlanet, you'll have more fun that 90% of the Wii games out there, that lasts 100x longer (community levels and DLC) -Free online via PSN -Blu-Ray movie prices are dropping fast! HD is on the rise, people wana show off their TV sets and use them to their potential. -Already a AAA games list lined up and who knows what GDC and E309 will bring. Of course MORE titles. -Almost every game that's coming on the xb360, is gona be on the PS3. Exclusives will go head to head and we all know which company has the most impressive first and second party games (PS3, for the slow or ignorant ones out there). -The low cost, simple dev of the xb360 V.S. the cell is starting to show. The PS3 has surpassed the xb360 in terms of graphics, and developers WILL start getting on the ball. -PS3 doesn't fail. -Nor do the games scratch, games last LONGER, value stays up (refurb trades vs non-refurb trades for those who like to go to video game stores or sell their games to others). -Many many more. if you disagree you're gay. =P
this aint no ROCKY movie there is no comeback
"-this aint no ROCKY movie there is no comeback" say that to nintendo with the SNES, and the company overall. there are such things as comebacks.
I've been here for years. LOL PS3 is well worth it, it gives me the entertainment I need. Once the price drops I will buy a second one for my office. @kewlkat007 - fyi I have 13 games. COD4 RFoM R2 HS SF4 Fallout 3 Warhawk MGS4 Assasins Creed KZ2 Uncharted Fifa 08 LBP I buy games to enjoy them, not to compete againts fanboys.
It WOULD be a comeback, because the truth is it's been behind in sales. The fact the 360 got a head start is irrelevant - it still needs a "comeback", sales wise. That being said, of course a comeback is possible. This generation is far from over. I'm sure there are plenty of people, like me, who are just waiting for the hardware to reach the right price and for the right game(s) to come out. Me? I'm waiting for God of War 3 and perhaps a little Gran Turismo 5. I don't think the PS3 will completely dominate the 360, nor will the 360 dominate the PS3. If there's any "PS2-level" winner this generation, it will be the Wii. The PS3 and 360 will likely end the generation neck-and-neck, so it won't matter all that much which one "wins" if the difference is only 5-10 million consoles, as opposed to the massive victory the PS2 had last generation.
I didn't think it was dire. Year and a half ago it was a little touch and go. Now you can tell they are doing a lot better by how much fud the 360 camp is trying to spread.
i would still be a happy gamer for what the ps3 has brought me as a gamer. i just got a new hdtv and with a free linux dl i have a fully functioning computer, that also plays some of the best games this gen. i have said it before even if the phantom came out tommorow and pushed the ps3 to 4th i would still be hapy with my purchase. might be the best 400$ i have ever spent :)
for a price drop, sales aren't that big of a deal. The console is awesome, the best outta the 3 IMO. Just because a console doesn't sell alot doesn't mean it isn't a great product.
@Sillellak : by your dumb logic, Xbox 360 needs a really huge comeback vs PS2 then. Of course PS2 was here before, but it seems it doesn't matter for you. Seriously.
You could buy like 6 games instead.. OR buy one for a little poor boy that could afford to buy more games..
Because its hardware doesnt melt when just above room temperature?
Dude, you're reaching. Did you read the article? It's ABOUT the PS3 being third in SALES and making a comeback in SALES. It has nothing to do which one is best or worst with regards to system quality. @1.5 Seriously? That's your argument? Everyone admits the 360 is in competition with the PS3 and the Wii. That is this generation's "line-up". The PS2 came out before the XBox, does that mean the XBox was not in competition with the PS2? Yeesh. @1.9 I wasn't referring to your post, I was referring to HDDVD's post, 1.5.
Its not my argument.. I just felt like stating one of the many reasons why I think it will come through. @1.8 My bad.
What lol ? The PS3 is selling faster than the 360 did.
It's irrelevant huh? How many years have we had to listen to Xbox fans claiming how PS2 was only first in sells because it was released a year earlier? Obviously that was ridiculous, but considering the PS3 has a higher yearly average than the 360 and was selling more last year before the price drop, the fact it came out a year later is not nullified.
I've done my fair share for the attach rate: I've got 32 blu-ray games and 18 PSN games. The only multiplatform games I have are: - Unreal Tournament 3 - Prince of Persia - Soul Calibur 4 - Street Fighter 4 - Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection I have more PS3 games than Wii games (I have 8 disc + 24 downloadable) and 360 games (15 disc + 14 downloadable).
@ callahan09 .... dam bro i wish i had that much $ to spent lol
Hah. Yeah. I've got an addiction... I've been spending the majority of my disposable income on videogames since I was in high school!
All together i got 58 Blu Ray games and 20 PSN games 4 my PS3 (albeit 4 of them are doublers i got when i bought my 2nd 60gig before they were sold out.. Oh and 1 doubler got lost in the mail so they sent another and i ended up with 2!!). Personally im not gonna sit and debate wether or not the PS3 needs to make a comeback as the fanboys hv already came out in arms but i would like to see the PS3 catch up in sales to the 360 for no other reason other than to give bk to Sony what they have given to many others. Off too a shaky start and a bit of touch and go but i think their more than bk on track. p.s. Ive also got god knows how many 360 and Wii games but there packed away in the cupboard as im bored of the Wii (Really only gd for a laugh when m8s come round), and my 360 is knackered.
Being released a year later than the 360? Being released at over twice the cost of the Wii? A comeback from only selling 10 million consoles per year? What is it that the PS3 has to make a comeback from? Just asking...
Are there even 20 odd PS3 Blu-Ray based exclusives? Thats a great collection! I've got about 12 PSN games myself and about 11 PS3 Blu-Ray based games, pretty much get multiplats on PS3 to play online for free and the PS3 has less chance of dying on me. I also have about 8 360 games and roughly 7 XBLA games. Just got a Wii recently... Geometry Wars Galaxies... brilliant.
Cajun, since you asked if there were even 20-odd Blu-Ray based exclusives, I'll give you the list of Exclusives that I own: UNITED STATES REGION: Buzz! Quiz TV Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice The Eye of Judgment Folklore Genji: Days of the Blade Gran Turismo 5: Prologue Haze Heavenly Sword Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Killzone 2 Lair Little Big Planet Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Resistance: Fall of Man Resistance 2 SOCOM: Confrontation Time Crisis 4 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Valkyria Chronicles Warhawk ASIA REGION: Aquanaut's Holiday: Hidden Memories Demon's Souls Siren: New Translation Yakuza Kenzan! That's 27 exclusive Blu-Ray released games that I own. Combined with the 5 multiplatform Blu-Ray games I already mentioned above, that's the complete list of my 32 Blu-Ray games.
to an extent, you might need more mathematical symbols and other variables, but your gist is nearly accurate.
"Games like Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots" like those sure helped. I mean just check out the latest H/W figures I guess Killzone 2's sales boost was like a candle in the wind.
because a console that sells 20 mill in two years with tough compettition and an high price is failure. :) ahh you turned it on me nice. anyways i dont care about that i just like to play games you go ahead and be angry about a piece of consumer electronics if you want
If you say so.
he was just randomly hitting keys on his keyboard and it managed to write that. and decided that it was to hard to delete it and decided to run with it out of laziness. </sarcasm>
lol @ your fanboyism, ignorance my friend thats what your showing
Hasn't it been poised for a comeback since day 1? Just kidding, geesh, can't I have a little fandoy fun without getting my head torn off?
Last place in... what? Oh, that BS media made "console war." Yeah, you keep arguing that, I'mma go play some kickass games.
if you sell ten apples for 200$, and i sell five apples for 400$......... :) edit: callahan09 not sure just a samll rant off topic
I think you forgot the oranges.
:) edit: is it just me or are the ads on this site getting more and more depressing?
there not a bunch of kids on it yet thats what i like when it gets cheaper O God
if you compare the sales at a rate you still see the PS2 doing better. Not the case with the PS3 and xbox360.
You're right - If PS3 and 360 were released at the same time, 360 would be WAY ahead to the tune of about 14 million per year for 360 to 10 million per year for PS3. A few facts - PS3 was announced in May, 2005. So, when Xbox 360 went on sale, everyone knew PS3 was coming. Therefore, anyone who bought a 360 between November 2005 and Nov. 2006 did so with the full knowledge that PS3 was on it's way. Anyone who bought a 360 between Nov. 2006 and today did so while the two machines are available side by side. There is NO reason to believe that anyone who bought a 360 in it's first year would not have bought it had it been released in Nov. 2006 instead of 2005. Had the two consoles been released simultaneously, both would have sold the same amount as they have with 360 being released earlier. If you disagree, I'd like to hear a reason why you think that a current 360 owner would have chosen a different console had the 360 been released at the same time as PS3.
07 we were told PS3 was dead. Outsold Xbox. 08 we were told PS3 was dead. Equalled or Outsold Xbox. Dont call it a comeback, PS3 was never behind. Seriously you FKN bots bragging about your lead you only have from releasing early before your machine was even finished is like bragging about the size of your c*ck but half of it is made from silly putty.
that sad thing people have disagreed with you. the PS3 is selling at a faster pace than the 360. the incoming price cut will push it even more.
because (i think)histoy will repeat itself, 3rd year in the ps2 had one of its biggest years i think
a price drop will help but sony must make up alot of ground fast in order to stay in the game.They need there new IP's ASAP .At 299.99 i think Sony will be ok.Can PS3 make a comeback Yes but every move Sony make's from here on out must be Right.
This website writes a lot of anti-ps3 articles.
If there was no such thing as a 360 or wii the ps3 would TOTALLY be winning right now LOL
if the xb360 wasnt buying their way through the market, the PS3 would have changed the development of gaming much faster. think about it: we would have had a 50GB GTA4. Now please don't say you wouldn't have wanted that..
'Don't call it a comeback, i've been here for years" Aww LL, good times, good times.
the very first comment. LOL
Oh damn how could i have missed that. lol! Well It's a classic so nice had to be quoted twice. lol!
and you idiots know it....turn that loud, cheap, ugly thing on...and play halo pinata....lol
The ugly broken over priced combi divice is used by smart people? it doesn't do anything the 360 does that good. Watching movies must be what all of you are doing. What do you do with that ugly ass thing, look at it? while you sit in your room surfing the web because your mama's on her PC? You can watch HD Anime Cartoons in the dark like all the rest of the smart people that purchased it :P Is that how these kids get the PS3 by tricking mummy claiming its a SUPER divice? come on that has to be it! adults don't sit on websites cheer leading for their fav toys 24/7 attacking competition like its a threat on you way of life hahahaha. All that hype for FLOPZONE-WHO and LITTLE "BIG" FLOP and for what? what a waste. We hear this fud every year while the gap gets wider lol. Every year PS3 fanboys post assumed lineup lists and by the end of every year you can't find a fanboy talking about PS3's lineup (at the end of every year)
i see u been hiding like a little girl all this time, it sad to see fake supporter. u say u support the 360 but are only around for the good and never the bad? ur nothing more then a fake supporter unlike we sony supporter who have been there for sony on the bad n good. it must hurt n burn knowing that sony ps3 is becoming the leading platform of this generation. ps3killin360...
Yea you keep telling yourself that ps3 has flops when really its your favorite or (only console) with the most of them. Quit lying to yourself bro. PS2 has great games because of all its first party support and so does ps3.
PLAYSTATION®3 was never in a position for a comeback. On November 17, 2006, PS3 was released as the market leading ecosystem in consumer interactive electronics. Upon it's inception, PLAYSTATION®3 immediately placed itself in first place. Winning the hearts of many across the virtual globe, successfully securing Dark Sniper's faith in the number one leading platform internationally. 2006 was just the beginning. 2007 started the first waive of AAA titles followed with 2008 and then 2009. When involving PLAYSTATION®3 in any game production, your immediate result is success. Which is why it's now a common business practice to snatch any and all Xbox 360 exclusives and initialize a new home within Sony's infrastructure. Once again, Dark Sniper is the Spectrum of Truth and Portrayer of Fact. Everytime he turns on his PLAYSTATION®3 Home Entertainment Terminal, he knows he has placed his support not only in the greatest console to ever be manufactured by heavenly flesh, but he knows that he has the number one console for this generation and b3yond. Microsoft, once again welcome to third place. $niper
ps3 need no comeback, with 21 to 22 million ps3 sold sony doin beyond great. ps3 is slowly becoming the leading platform of this generation. romemac7...
i wouldnt say the lead wii is ....lol
ps3 needs no comeback because as far i know ps3 is becoming the leading platform of this generation. with 21 to 22 million os3 sold already sony is doing great and needs no need to worry about M$ OR THE 360. Romemac7...
they need a price cut and there games to sell better,
The PS3 is in third place because it came out last..... THE END
Hope this is the last time we have to read that the PS3 is on a comeback. Stupid remark as the PS3 is just gaining speed and sure is not going to slow down. At least not for some years to come..... THE BEST IS YET TO COME....................
First or third, the PS3 will still be a brilliant console that's never failed to impress me at every turn. Won't affect the great games out now and on the way.
