    Blu-rays sale percentage tracking

    in Sales Discussion on 25 February 2010

    Vetteman94 said: No I am not missing the point, just some people arent reading.   When DVD was released its manufacturing process was more expensive then VHS.  It did close this gap within a few years, but at first it was not.  Again this comparison can't work. In fact the pure production costs of DVD-5s were no problem. It were the mastering...

    Vetteman94 said: A few of your points are quite wrong.  The BDA has more power than you give credit for.  They include every major movie production company in the world, if one starts doing something that will help with Blu-ray adoption,  the others will follow.  I believe this happened once before........, oh thats right it did,  DVD did the...

    Blu-rays sale percentage tracking

    in Sales Discussion on 24 February 2010

    Vetteman94 said: Actually the way things are going it is going to take some serious intervention from the BDA for Blu-ray to take over DVD anytime soon You miss a crucial point: The BDA has no real power! Outside of the technical standard they are mainly a marketing instrument, but 6they don't really have much money or influence. They can't order their members to...

    The Cell Processor....

    in Sony Discussion on 30 July 2009

    Final-Fan said:It's better, I think, to just say (when you think someone uninformed will be looking), "You can't directly compare two different types of processor by looking at the GHz, cores, etc. You have to look at performance. That's true of AMD vs. Intel, and extra double true of AMD/Intel vs. Cell." Not quite. In fact AMD and Intel architectures have n0ow more incommon. The...

    Blu Ray sales are up and DVD sales are down

    in Sales Discussion on 03 June 2009

    heruamon said:So, what does this mean? Is this something that has been sustained over a period of time, or is this a blip? Long term, does this mean this trend will continue? Both. The medium will stay for a time but I wouldn't expect a fundamental switch as it happened with the DVD. The DVD had too many advatages but the Blu-ray is only a question fo quality. Movie buffas will...

    Blu Ray sales are up and DVD sales are down

    in Sales Discussion on 03 June 2009

    nightsurge said: Pretty soon Blu-Ray players will hit $99 or less. That's the next big step to making them a mass market item. It still will not get above 20-30% for a long while since only about 1/3 of households in the US have an HDTV, and not all of those purchase a blu-ray player. There are even bigger problems for Standalone Players. It is nearly impossible to get an...

    PS3 Slim pretty much announced - Now predict hardware and software sales

    in Sales Discussion on 28 May 2009

    Avarice28 said: I am curious, has Microsoft even made any slim consoles?  Last gen that did not and I do not think they would this generation either (unless you count the arcade which is a less tricked out pro). No, last Gen Nvidia prevented them to go Slimline, but the CPU and GPU were designed from the beginning to become a single chip. Furthermore Hardware companies...

    Linux: PS3s Cell is faster than i7 965 XE

    in Sony Discussion on 27 May 2009

    Jo21 said: PPE only sync, but SPU can be working on background preparing to process data or helping the SPU. SPU have less cache, than PPE thats the main difference other being require DMA calls to move data. Not quite. The SPUs do not have a cache, they depend on their local memory that has to hold the programming code and the Data and only the Programmer is...

    Linux: PS3s Cell is faster than i7 965 XE

    in Sony Discussion on 27 May 2009

    Jo21 said:Cell have PPE too.that does the syncing with all the others SPUS. Or to describe it more precisely: The PPE/PPU is the real processor optimized for for Random Access, while the SPUs are streaming processors. They depend on a single data stream that delivers everything to their local memories. If you can't work this way (depends on informations from several sources you are...

    Linux: PS3s Cell is faster than i7 965 XE

    in Sony Discussion on 27 May 2009

    Carl2291 said: Was that a serious reply to me saying that the Cell is Skynet? No It was a serious reaction to you claim, that it would be damage control. If you would really want to see damage control, simply look at the PS-3. The Cell itself was developped for a quite different game machine but Sony was uncapable to develop the companion chip. The SPUs and the GPU...

    PS3 to make the greatest sales comeback in history of console sales wars

    in Sales Discussion on 26 May 2009

    AvZeroMkA157 said:In order for the PS3 to make a comeback, they need outstanding Christmas seasons from now on. I think this might be a major problem even with a price cut. The customers differ significantly compared to other times. Blu-ray players will have an additional price cut. The recession will still be in place and it is simply cheaper to buy the Xbox 360. It is a complete...

    Exploring Stock Options before E3

    Carl2291 said:Lol @ damage control in this thread.Is it illegal to say something good about PS3?Cell = Skynet. Not quite. The main problem of the PS-3 is something different: The SPUs and the GPU don't work in sync with each other. On normal PCs or the Xbox 360 you have 2 types of code that has to interact with each other, on the PS-3 3. For Number Crunching purposes you normally...

    Recent adjustment hysteria... just where are we? Lets see....

    in Sales Discussion on 19 May 2009

    WereKitten said: Since I suppose you entered all the weekly hardware numbers for each region in a spreadsheet I would have found more interesting charting the weekly 360/PS3 ratios per region (and analogue with totals). It comes for free (you have the numbers yet) and it probably shows more. I think you are missing the big point. If you look at the total numbers of...

    How important is it to you PS3 beats 360 in console sales war?

    in Sales Discussion on 13 May 2009

    SJGohan3972 said:  My hope is they both do fairly well and that both Sony and Microsoft pull their heads from their asses and start trying to make a profit instead of cutting eachother's throats and trying to go for market  share, this late in the Gen that's not as important - Hint: YOU SHOULD BE MAKING MONEY ON A CONSOLE 3-4 YEARS AFTER IT RELEASES (that's...

    Are Sony Undermining The PS3?

    in Sony Discussion on 31 March 2009

    reask said: What about the low budget customers that pick up a 360 in ever increasing numbers? It surely has to be a high risk strategy looking at that scenario as they would be the customers that are lost forever this gen. Sure it is risky, but it is the best they can do. A price cut on the PS-3 would mean that they sell at a loss. They don't have this kind of...

    Honestly what was Sony thinking

    in Sales Discussion on 14 March 2009

    thx1139 said: Really what was Sony's plan with the PS3. Game consoles don't grow on trees, they are the result of a long running development, where many road blocks can occur. The original concept for the PS-3 and the reason for the Cell looked quite different, but you can't simply change the concept after you spend billions of US-$, instead you try to get around the road blocks...

    GTA 5 To Be PS3 Bound? By Megaman2

    megaman2 said: Rockstar wants to raise the bar even further with many gamers being dissapointed with Grand Theft Auto 4, Rockstar is looking to take Grand Theft auto 5 to new heights and this can only be possible on the Playstation 3. They will be looking to take full advantage of the Blu Ray disc and the sheer power of the Ps3 therefore making the game mulitiplatform will mean that...

Well, you have to admit that it is probably a quite effective excuse for a slight programming trick. If you delay the control response slightly, it makes the internal timing much...
