by virtue of GT5 PROLOGUE

If Sony was smart they would've made GT5 a download for everyone.... Simple as that. That would've made sales all over the world boom! The way it is.. they have one more push in Japan before the holidays and nothing much for the u.s. or U.k. Still, Sony ended the year with nearly 8 million units sold... Not a bad year at all for them. Next year will be even better.

damn wii chill out on the competition. ps3 is now cruising at almost 40,000 a month which is great and shows public reception for ps3 has improved sony needs to ride this momentum and keep increasing their sales in all markets. xbox saw a gain due to lost odyssey unfortunately lost odyssey didnt move that much hardware. psp sold 90,000 quite impressive as well but nintendo still leads. Would be interesting to see GT's impact
