    Patcher Expects All Three Consoles To Cut Prices This Year!

    in Sales Discussion on 02 February 2010

    I see true price cuts for only 360 360 Arcade=$150 Super Elite+Natal=$300 I agree, with one caveat, sooner or later theyre going to have to stop cutting the Arcade the same dollar amount as the others. Because as a percentage, as the Arcade price lowers, the percent of a given dollar amount grows. Example: a straight 50 cut is a 17% drop for the Elite, but a 25% drop for the...

    Wow by this chart Heavy Rain is getting no hype. Just as I suspected that game will not sell well.I'm not sure I trust this chart. The Ps3 version of so many games being ahead of the 360 one strains credibility....

    Holy Hell hardware adjustments!

    in Sales Discussion on 30 January 2010

    360 being 5.8m ahead of PS3 might not jive with the shipment numbers. As of Sep 30 360 was 6.5 m ahead. We know MS shipped 5.2 the Dec end quarter. If Sony as expected ships ~7 when their numbers come out, the 360's cumulative shipped lead will be 4.7m.It's hard to justify a 5.8 sell through lead with a 4.7 shipped lead imo. In fact, if anything conventional wisdom might be that PS3 has less in...

    in Sales Discussion on 30 January 2010

    ioi said:Adjustments were for Scandinavia and other Europe, going back over 3-4 years. Data is very hard to track accurately in those regions and these latest Nintendo graphs show how much we were overstating figures in those regions... across the board What "latest Nintendo graphs" is he reffering to? The ones that came out three months ago, or are there new graphs from Nintendo's...

    Geoff Keighley: Mass Effect 2 Will Come To PS3, EA Just Canít Talk About It Yet

    in Sony Discussion on 29 January 2010

    If it comes out six months after the 360 version, I dont think it matters.I haven't seen any proof of that though.It's weird though, as EA is normally a strictly multiplatform developer. Seems like many publishers bend the rules because they like 360 better, same reason it seems many Japanese devs still give the 360 exclusives despite it's Japan sales not justifying it at all.Microsoft's strategy...

Forget MW2 worldwide sales, its penetration of the Japanese market is the real news. Is this game finally going to pave the way for the success of other Western games in Japan? I often wonder if many...

MGS4 is the only one I can think of that did. I guess FF13 only in Japan (will have no effect elsewhere). But I kind of think the Slim had more effect on Ps3 sales in Japan than FF13. Just a...

    Will the PS3 overtake the 360 in 2011?

    in Sales Discussion on 27 January 2010

    Then neither PS3 nor 360 "win" anything because Wii "won".I was using the term win as a relative. By every metric 360 will be a great success. It will sell 2-3X what Xbox did, etc. I do not think PS3 will overtake it, even throwing in Japan where PS3 has no competition from 360. PS3 beating 360 in Japan is like beating a man with one leg in a race, Sony deserves NO credit for that at all. But...

    Umm, wasn't this known to just be the Gears of War characters in Lost Planet 2 thing??This tweet was Jan 25, and that "announcement" was Jan 26. Am I missing something???If not, maybe it is Gears 3 at X10? That would be amazing, but I doubt it. And if it is announced, it will probably just be a worthless teaser trailer that reveals nothing but a logo, though it would still be huge news.Wow Sony...

    Ubisoft commit commercial suicide

    in PC Discussion on 27 January 2010

    Who cares, PC game sales are very low because of pirates. Ubisoft does not care about PC gamers and rightfully so. Maybe if PC gamers stop stealing games, they will be cared about again.   Ubisoft has already said AC2 sales are 40% ahead of AC1. I am sure they commited "financial suicide" and are crying in their milk right now....

It's not gonna stop better games from coming out, though maybe push MS to further desperate moves or churning out their next system quicker. Well if it's 2011 or even 2010 MS still won, PS3 was supposed to destroy 360 like Ps2 destroyed Xbox.   And...
