sony could pass it because gt5 is coming even without dropping the price of ps3

I think GT5 will be the biggest platform seller PS3 has ever had. The price is right now, and you'd be surprised to see how many is interested in GT5. It's the CoD of racing games, only really good.

MGS4 is considered to be the biggest console seller so far, I think.

The GT Franchise is the Biggest Seller for PlayStation, GT3 move millions with the PS2 in Hardware and Software respectively, it'll be the same for GT5 on the PS3...

Halo 3 sold 11 million, so it can compete in numbers.

Anyway, on-topic good for Sony, should be the PS3's biggest year. How good it will be could depend alot on the move vs kinect battle that I have no interest in.

I remember when Sony mentioned this target last year, a lot of people said they couldn't do it, and look at them now.

Only Fanboys would disagree with this

comparing racer to a non scripted game with large levels with plenty of on screen action is bit of stretch

Wheee! Can I spin with you too?

Seriously though, this is the worst case of spin you've done so far.
