Price drop did wonders.

More like absolutely fantastic lineup of games did wonders.

Go Xbox 360 and DS. The best gaming systems in the market are doing good!

The pricecut helped the 360 a lot, but won't the exact same thing happen when the PS3 finally gets one?

Are you being seriuos? Do you really think are PS3 price cut wont help PS3 sales?

If so you are really funny. Last year x360 was outsold by the PS3 almost the whole year (after a 100$ price cut) and by June was released MGS4 making the gap even bigger. Look at the recent NPD comparison for June. MS desperately cut the arcade price down to 200$, the cheapest console in the market.

GT5 + slim ps3 + price cut will be earth shattering. Mark my words, and dont forget USA is not the world (not by a long shot).

To think that a price cut wouldn't at all affect PS3 sales.
Deadmetalhead presented a logical,likely question and is in turn slammed with disagree's.Oddly enough,not one sensible response clarifying why he might be wrong.
I agree,it isn't rocket surgery.

onanie3472d ago (Edited 3472d ago )

It's all about driving perception (and I'm not sure what is driving that in the first place, but likely a kind of fervour), in spite of reality.

if only I could use "that's it" to prove everything I say. :)


I couldn't agree more.It's easy to dismiss something but difficult to explain why.'Thats it' will have to suffice in this case LOL.=)
