47.9 - 6.3 = 41.6 You would think a website of their caliber and access to the financial report could do simple math.

For those who still don't get it, the number quoted at GDC was the end of Q2 number, the same number that rolled out with the Move numbers. The current sales total is 47.9 million, nipping at Microsoft's heels big time, so Sony isn't contradicting themselves or their financial report. Dude just got the wrong quarter, big freakin' deal!

Only problem is that LG is a little bit allergic to profit, and if they lose the lawsuit that Sony brought against them it will devastate them. This console 'ban' won't last, won't matter, and is just a stall tactic by LG to try and hurt Sony a smidge before Sony obliterates them. The fact that LG managed to get a judge to agree on a ban because of Blu-ray is astounding, and the judge has been played for a fool because there's no way Sony is actually infringing on LG and w...

Cliffy B. should be less worried about putting down the Move, even in light-hearted jest, because he really doesn't have to do anything to keep Microsoft happy. If he talks shit about Kinect or Move, or praises one or the other it doesn't really matter because it's not like Microsoft is going to cancel Gears 3 or anything.

I mean sure they'll push the reveal, then the release date, then a new reveal, and do it all in the name of Kinect. It makes complete and ...

I have always wondered what it must be like to live under a rock and once this effin' clown finds out what words taste like I'll make sure to call him up for an interview. Talk about blatantly ignoring the current market so that you can paint a more favorable picture for yourself/company, this guy has apparently mastered it.

Going into specifics on this would be akin to teaching a 35 year old deaf/dumb/mute without feeling in his fingers how to read braille with his ...

Any analyst worth a damn, as well as any publisher, developer, etc. that doesn't realize that mobile phone gaming and console gaming, be it at home or on a dedicated handheld, are two distinct markets should get out of the industry they serve. There is now way that mobile gamin will take over for dedicated devices do because those people don't buy them because of the games exclusively, or at all, because they are phones first and everything else second. If the iPhone was released with...

Seriously, unless his excuse for making Fable progessively worse is that he is bored with the limitations of the Xbox and wants to challenge himself, but really, I highly doubt that is the reason.

If he can prove that the drive failed as a direct result of the FW and not from never updating, playing online and as such only playing disc based games could have worn out a drive over three years. There is no direct correlation and his system is out of warranty, if he wants it fixed he has to pay. My console YLOD on me six months after the warranty expired, yeah it sucked and I was in the middle of my second playthrough of Dead Space. I had an extended warranty from Walmart that they couldn...

Everyone thinks that Sony should have done a three year extension like Microsoft did for RRoD while forgetting that they were pretty much forced to do it to avoid anymore lawsuits and problems. They also seem to think that drive failure is a very pervasive problem on the level of RRoD, and fail to realize that even 1000 posts on a forum about the same thing amounts to a fraction of a fraction of the install base of consumers that have not or will not have a problem at all.

Sony is lasting appeal because they marry the casual and the core and offer them separate or fused experiences. That's why they won the previous two gens and may or may not end up winning this one, but they will remain the most critically acclaimed and at least in second. You can't cater to one specific audience and expect long term success ad the Wii is already showing that and that audience will be looking to upgrade to Move or Kinect. Move will always be consistent and continue to ...

The amount of misinformation and bloated stories regarding Sony, Move, and it's sales is absolutely stunning. It's a peripheral for crying out loud, and Sony doesn't really need it to be a short term success since everything they do is long term. Great, Kinect sold gangbusters out of the gate, according to Microsoft who somehow has magical sell-through numbers, but there are literally no games on the horizon for this thing. Hackers are doing awesome things for it and showing it...

Hopefully Sony and Naughty Dog hate the script so much from it's wild deviations that they fire DOR and kick Marky Mark in the balls and then fire gim also. There is no way this thing is going to even test well and I highly doubt that Sony and Naughty Dog will be happy with the direction they are taking once the script is finished and they have a better idea of where he is trying to take it.

Who cares if he made Three Kings, the movie came out a while ago, and now he h...

No, you are wrong, if Sony reports their own numbers, outside of NPD reporting, it's always shipped, and Microsoft and Nintendo do the same thing. Microsoft can somehow magically start producing their own sell-through data ad everyone suddenly thinks it is legit.

Umm no, sorry, anyone who believes that tripe is fail, and if they can do it then they should stop paying for NPD reports and start giving weekly updates on Console sell-through data because if they can do it ...

I have no idea why everyone is eating up Microsofts word at face value saying they know their sell-through number in absolute terms after 25 days, and they know it globally.

Every single quarterly and fiscal year end reports all use the numbers that have been shipped to retail, period, as those units have been sold to retail (except maybe Microsoft). The only way to get sell-through tracking is through NPD, and other firms like it overseas, so if Microsoft knows the sell-t...

Holy crap, what year do you live in, 2007!? Get a grip bro and chill the hell out everything you mentioned is pretty much a biased argument that reads like your trolling yourself. Of course Sony is a business but they listen to their players more and respond effectively while also helping to grow the industry in the same ways Nintendo does. Microsoft claims to, and they have delivered on certain platforms, but in most cases they just demonstrate an awesome apptitude for subterfuge, most of it...

That is the most insanely illogical argument I have heard as to why not to cast someone in a movie. I can't believe that was all these guys could come up with for this piece.

Sony wouldn't have a hard time finding another director. Hell, whoever directs the game would probably be a better director on this project the Davey O'Russell, and make better casting decisions while keeping the continuityin check. If they aren't careful he could destroy the game for some people and Sony should really reconsider because ND is one of the last studios I would want to piss off because they hired someone to make a movie of their critically acclaimed, and commercially...

Severely deluded Wii fans are super rare, do you live under a tree or something because nothing you said make a lick of sense, both grammatically and logically. Epic fail dude, epic fail.

That install base has a pretty clear purchase history and it doesn't include lot's of RPG's. In Japan, they fare well, but in the West not so much. Soccer moms buy Mario, fitness games, and the occasional dance, sports, whatever game. You are the minority Wii owner tat would pruchase a game like KH3, most casual only gamers will completely ignore it, just like they will with Epic Mickey which will force its release on the HD consoles, or at least the PS3 since it has a similar con...

You clearly no little about SE yourself. Historically the main series is on console, spin-offs on handhelds, that's the way it's been done since the first game was released. The age group for Kingdom Hearts is not a bunch of little kids and that will not direct SE's decision on the matter, as if they really have much of one since it's ultimately up to Nomura. He'll want the main, most important game, on an HD console, period, and that will be the PS3. That's not to say...

Keep dreaming matey. If you think the 3DS will be as powerful or more than a PS3/X360 you are sorely mistaken, much in the sam way that the Wii2 will be the same as them when it will likely be slightly less powerful than the current HD consoles. As it's been pointed out already, Black OP's 3D fail is the fault of Treyarch, not the limits of the PS3. And RE Revelations looks good but it doesn't look better than RE5 in any way. 720p rendered twice is exactly what the PS3 has been pr...
