Shane said: Sony owns Europe as much as it owns Japan. Whether it continues to sell well in the near future doesn't make much difference. It's only US where the other two even have what resembles a prayer.
Shane said: PS2 has 80% of Europe and Japan. Microsoft's got a slight edge on Nintendo in Europe, while despite all the talk of how much Xbox failed in Japan, Gamecube was only twice as successful as it, but at the end of the day, both ultimately ended up with Sony's scraps. Sony looks to have a bit more of a fight on its hands to reclaim Japan, but I'd be surprised if they don't jump over Wii in Europe this year.
No one is arguing that PS2 owned the last generation of consoles.. the PS2 blew away everything in every single market. But it's 2007, the new consoles are out and PS3 is sucking balls in all continents. Every hard core PS2 owner probably went out on launch day and bought the PS3. And there's lots of those... for example about 600k in Europe. Now pretending that the PS3 will outsell the Wii this year is europe is absolutly absurd... Actually, I just realized how out of touch you probably are and my post is pointless..
