"The numbers seem to be favoring Sony so far
It seems that a good number of industry insiders as well as industry analysts now think that the sales numbers from now through the holiday season will continue to favor Sony. The price drop is the difference, and now it appears that Sony will finally gain ground on both Microsoft and Nintendo, turning things around for the PlayStation 3.
Since the price drop, the Sony is expected to lead the sales numbers for September, which will be a first for the company since the 2006 launch. Still, many are urging caution as some analysts (including us here at Fudzilla) think that the recent price drops of both the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii could have something to say about Sony running away with the lead for the entire holiday season with the PS3."
