PS3 could statistically surpass 360, may 2011--Jan. 2012

Forums - Sales Discussion - PS3 could statistically surpass 360, may 2011--Jan. 2012

If the current pace stands until holidays, chances are PS3 will outsell 360 by 150k+ a week for the holiday periods which would bring the PS3 second place scenario even sooner than is posted in the OP. The OP calculations are correct...I just dont see how Kowen's numbers (no disrespect) can counter that, attal.



...uhh...ill just put my favorite quote of all time here.

"Welcome to Pain, the second of three...You have dealt the first...now deal with me!!"

1.) The Slim wasnt launched in 2008,
2.) 2008 is completely irrelevant cause it doesnt cooincide with the current trend thats been running for 9 months now.
3.) again 2008 doesnt matter...at all anymore.

Actually this right here that you wrote is a fanboy comment.  What he said was true.

If I made this same thread at this time last year, the PS3 would have been down by an average of about 100k a week and the gap would forever increase.  You have to realize that momentum shifts will continue to happen each year.  This year it will favor MS (with slim, price cut, natal, etc).  There will be no year where Sony and MS somehow neutralize each other's moves so that a shift does not occur.

2007 - Sony price cut - Momentum goes to Sony

2008 - MS price cut - Momentum goes to MS

2009 - Sony price cut + Slim - Momentum goes to Sony

2010 - MS price cut + Slim - Momentum goes to MS

And so on....

^ This.

2010 is the 360's year just like 2008, 360 slim, natal, price cut, it will leave ps3 in the dirt (in terms of sales), you all know how well the ps3 slim sold, the 360 slim will match that and pass it with ease.

I seriously don't think that'll happen but ok XD

^Its called an average. It includes both holiday and non-holiday considerations. Rather than separate the 2, he includes the total of all of them and just gives one simple average per month. Much easier that way.



What you're referring to as niggers, is in fact, Afrcan Americans/niggers, or as I've recently taken to calling them, Afrcan Americans plus niggers. Niggers is not an race unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Afrcan Americans system made useful by the Afrcan American community.

Many slave owners run a modified version of the Afrcan Americans every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of Afrcan Americans which is widely used today is often called "niggers", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the Afrcan Americans system, developed by the Afrcan Americans Project.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. There really are niggers, and these people are using them, but it is just a part of the system they use. Niggers are the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the Afrcan American community's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an Afrcan American community, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete Afrcan American community. Niggers are normally used in combination with the Afrcan Americans community: the whole system is basically Afrcan Americans with niggers added, or Afrcan Americans/niggers. All the so-called "niggers" are really distributions of Afrcan Americans/niggers.

The time frame may be right but those "per month" numbers are useless.

Neither did any PS3 fans think the 360 would win 2008, but ok.  Obviously your personal bias will never allow you to think the competition is going to come out with something that beats your system in sales, but history, logic, and growing evidence says otherwise.

It's concievable, both consoles have the same amount of breathing room for pricecuts as they are currently the same price, so pricecuts on both sides should still end up favoring the PS3 if these patterns continue. There is no reason to think that they won't, either.


How do you figure?  The 360 starts at $200 and the PS3 starts at $300.

No they are not.  Ugh, do you not know what an average is?  The number he is giving as "per month" is no different to what you suggested doing.  Obviously some months outside of holidays it would never reach that amount, but the months during holidays it would exceed that amount and the overall average would turn out about right.

Trust us.  I really don't know how else to explain these simple calculations, but they are perfect exactly as they are.

That's why I said "ok" but obviously he'll still that'll all happen.

How do you figure?  The 360 starts at $200 and the PS3 starts at $300.

But the majority of sales (~75% outside of holiday months) is the $300 360.  Starting price is irrelevant considering they have different SKU's.  If they PS3 had a hard drive-less SKU it would be ~$200 too, but that would be a bad thing because a PS3 has to have a big hard drive since so many games require installs.
