Forums - Sales Discussion - Is It Possible 4 The PS3 To Sell 100M B4 It's Off The Market?... I Think So - UPDATE 85 Millionz Reached

Will The PS3 Sell 100M Before Its off The Market?

no Wii will always be ahead 56 38.89%
 
iz possible 46 31.94%
 
yes number 1 console of 7th gen 39 27.08%
 
Total:141

Hell no.



Bet between Slimbeast and Arius Dion about Wii sales 2009:


If the Wii sells less than 20 million in 2009 (as defined by VGC sales between week ending 3d Jan 2009 to week ending 4th Jan 2010) Slimebeast wins and get to control Arius Dion's sig for 1 month.

If the Wii sells more than 20 million in 2009 (as defined above) Arius Dion wins and gets to control Slimebeast's sig for 1 month.

u think it's possible for it to 100m but do u think it will happen?

 

"Post If you think it will pass 100m

If you dont think it will pass 100m post where you think it will end up with some reasoning

Thank you "


Well 2009 and 2010 will be the peak years for the PS3.  After that it will be declining sales.  So no I dont think it will.

Not necessarily.

We have no idea how it will do when it reaches $199.

well... er... yeah....

it was my opinion... not a fact.     he was asking our opinions... so i posted it. 

but you are suggesting then that the PS3 could peak in 2011 or beyond... that would be very very strange. 



I'm not really here!

or at $179.00

or at

$149.99

by 2014 both the xbox360 and the PS3 will still have  month to month with very healthy system sale's watch it.

an extended generation for these current system's I am calling it here right now.

strong sales even in 2014 and 2015

It could happen if Sony bought Nintendo and renamed the Wii to PS3 and added their totals together afterall Sony are great at BS numbers :D

why would that be strange, the ps3 is getting just as much 3rd party support as the xbox360, and both the PS3 and the xbox360 are not even at the lowest price they can get this generation both the xbox360 elite and the PS3 can drop in price . yes the xbox360 has the arcade but that is in of itself a great selling component, which once it reaches $99.00 it's a no brainer to get one, but also the elite will still be selling. great because it has a great sale's market price that can be further reduced.

just like the PS3. I think that both the xbox360 and the PS3 will reach 100+ million before everything is done and overwith until the last xbox360 and PS3 leaves the factory's

Nah, I'd say 70-75 million MAX.

PS1 only barely edged past the 100 million mark and it sold quite strong, for nearly 10 years. Sony can say PS3 will sell ten years all they want, but ultimately it's up to the consumers if that comes to fruition, and looking at the sales right now, it doesn't seem likely that it'll have the legs to carry on for another 7 years.

Sony usually keeps their console on the market for 10yrs ...  I believe that what really slowed down the PS2 sales was the fact that this gen started in 2005 which i believe slowed down the PS2 sales considerably resulting in only really 5 good solid years of sales...

...I dont see new consoles releasing till atleast 2013 or 2014 or even later so that will mean that the PS3 will have about 3-4 more years...

You are totally mixing cause and effect. 

Hardware sells because there is demand for it, not because Sony wants it to sell. The previous generation had to end because there was no longer sufficient demand for the PS2. 

 

Also, there were only two earlier Sony consoles, and they also happened to be the two best selling home consoles ever in the history of gaming. 

What do you think, what made them sell for such a long time? The magical "Sony" logo on their casing?  Or the exceptional demand (which the PS3 lacks)?

 

Obviously, if it would be a matter of wanting really hard, every company would keep their consoles on the market for ten years,   or more, too bad it is useless if people don't buy it.

Exactly WHAT will make people buy the PS3 for another 3-4 years, considering that even more successful consoles than it, lost momentum after a lot shorter time?

 



those that think the PS3 will.... what will the wii finish at?

Interesting thread, good to see some predictions and debate that doesn't boil down to fanboys crying and screaming.

My first reaction to the question was no way, but after reading some comments and thinking about it.... I'm still going to say no way. I just think one of the big 3 will be going next gen by around 2012 and usually once one company jumps to the next gen they all will follow suit sooner than later. So Sony would have to sell around 70million PS3s in the next 3 years (assuming PS3 are selling considerable numbers until 2013). I just don't see that happening but I have seen crazier things happen :)
