Xbox 360 Slim be the end for PS3

Forums - Sony Discussion - Xbox 360 Slim be the end for PS3

The sales of Xbox 360 slim will go quite high in my opinion. The primary reason would be the fat-xbox is way too noisy and unrealiable, and many would like to replace with slim. I personally like to replace mine one too, and the only reason would be the noise. Currently my usage of consoles are: ps3=80%, Xbox=10, wii=10.

No PS3 slim will crush 360 slim, because it'll weigh more :P.



A more realistic question IMO would be "Will the PS3 Move, GT5 and 3D be the end for 360?"
Just being logic here.

Plus Sony will bring the real Slim next year! The Slim we got now was never called Slim by Sony but by the Media/Forums. Once that out it'll bring only Chaos!



I think everyone has forgot that the PS3 is not the PS3 Slim. meaning even if 360 gets a Slim model this year, there will be still be a PS3 Slim coming out possible the year after.

So now the question is, until the 360 gets a slim will the PS3 still hold up its momentum. After the 360 Slim is released and depending on what price point, how will this effect sales of the PS3 along with the big games which are coming out along with it and finally, how will a release of the PS3 Slim effect the 360 Slim sales?



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

A 360 price cut would really help the 360.. but its so cheap already.. lmao.. 200$ 150€ at only 4 years into its life... that's VERY cheap lol.. MS has to do more then just cut the price.. they are struggling against a console that has a higher price tag and is still being claimed of "having no games" by people who don't really follow Gaming news..



Currently playing: MAG, Heavy Rain, Infamous

 

Getting Plat trophies for: Heavy Rain, Infamous, RE5,  Burnout and GOW collection once I get it.

add a blu ray in it and it might be. But that is not going to happen :P



I don't think it will make MUCH of a difference.
Sure they will sell well, but the PS3 is at a sweet spot with 299.
If they need to a drop to 250 it will make this a "non issue" as KB would put it.

I was sayin it before, so I sat it again: MS pull the trigger to sony when they drop box to 99/59. And people saying it'd be impossible are forgetting four things:
a) how deep ms pockets are
b) how cheep made xbox hw is
c) big money coming to them from amazing sw sales, Live and accessories
BIG D) how methodical and insisting MS is at killing their competition: ps to them is just like another netscape ;)

Before you go posting that link around too much, consider that Lair is on that list of "Gold" games.  It got a Famitsu score of 34/50 whic is above the 32/50 needed to be on that list.  Remember that Famitsu is a Japanese hype meter.  Their ratings are based, and they have admitted, largely on how much the game is anticipated.  The only reason the Wii is way low on that list is because of all the shovelware.

Also, if you actually read the numbers, Famitsu may have given a greater percentage of PS3 games a "gold" ranking, but they gave more 360 game gold rankings in total number, than they gave PS3 games, 77 PS3 games to 104 360 games.

So, first, Famitsu is a poor measure of game quality.  Second, if you are going to post a link to numbers, make sure you read them first.

I give that post a 9.1.



Thank god for the disable signatures option.

when xbox released the hd dvd drive to compete with ps3's bluray, look how that turned out.
the elite + the release of the 250 gig hdd for xbox is all an xbox gamer really needs.
