People are selling their PS3's because they're tired of waiting for games and they're holding onto their Wii's and 360's.

Umm, well then other people are buying them, either way sales increase. this is just flame bait though, what is this week to week sales? Who cares?

Snake_Doctor4156d ago

yeah this article is stupid, and misleading. Sales plunge? what it really means is the average price sold decreased/increased, not how many of each were sold.

"Wii, Xbox 360 sales plunge, PS3 gains on eBay"

are you stone crazy!?

VaeVictus4156d ago

You're wrong. The more likely scenario is that people are selling their PS3's to other people willing to buy them. People are holding on to their Wii's and sending their 360's in for repair.

u sir are a dumbass... lets say 3 ppl sold their ps3 one for $587.06 another for $587.07 and another for $587.08 so when u average it out wat do u get? who knows maybe only 10 ppl sold their ps3 or maybe even jsut 3

EDIT: if u think they sold a lot of ps3 your an idiot, its basic supply and demand, if they had like 100 ps3 on ebay u wouldnt expect anything above $500, if u had 3 guys selling em... who knows how high it would go

Wii and 360 going downhill. PS3 is takin the high roads.

Whats up? How you doing man? Ok, so "people are trying to dump their Sony booster seats onto people for cheap on Ebay", you say?

Again, like TheExecutive points out in this earlier comment, ppl are still buying. Even if, ppl say, there is "no games" or look at the "price point". Right? So, there you go.

nobizlikesnowbiz4156d ago

Haha! The high road you say? Looks to me like people are trying to dump their Sony booster seats onto people for cheap on Ebay because Wii60 gamers are having too much fun with their consoles to sell them.

Except for those unfortunate ones that bricked :(.

This is Folding!

I don't know exactly what to make of this...
But, one take on it is, brand new XBOX360s and Wiis are affordable, so people go out and pickup a shiny new Xbox360 or Wii, where they are forced to pickup a second hand PS3 because of the high price.
