As someone else mentioned in here just because a console finishes 3rd does not make it bad, just because something is in 3rd place does not mean nobody will want it.

Also, if it makes you feel better. The PS3 sold more than the 2nd and 3rd place consoles of last gen. In due time it'll sell more than both the Xbox and Gamecube combined. Clearly there is a demand, just not nearly what Sony hoped.

As far as sales go the only real chance the PS3 has of surpassing the 360 is if Microsoft launches the next Xbox, sales of the 360 would slow down a lot and the PS3 might catch up

 

 

outside that possibility I don't see the PS3 catching up to the 360..... but I could be wrong



You're saying it will have mega sales???  They just lowered price $50 on older units and came out with a slim and are gettin 250k a week in sales.  That is like 2.5x more than it was getting.  Slim ps3 came out, went from like 300k to well over a million. That's over 3.3x.  It won't have "mega" sales, but ps3 prob won't catch it.



Money can't buy happiness. Just video games, which make me happy.

I believe Kinect will sell well because it's like nothing anyone has used before, like the Wii, it has that advantage.


it still reminds me of eye camera. game trailers has a comparison link, but i didn't want to post it.



Nothing to admit. I've known this for years now.

Yeah it is over for 2nd place for PS3.

But lets be honest. Sony made a damn good attempt. 

There just isn't an answer to Kinect and 360s. Especially considering 360s is the same price as PS3 Slim. And it would appear that it's the 360s selling and not the pricecut models due to rise in availability and rise in sales of 360. 

EU numbers should be awesome to on July 17th week.

My city is into taking preorders for the 2nd shipment. As the first is all preordered up.


Price cut and GT5. Fair enough as an answer?

PS3 won't be getting a price cut.  360 might, though.

360 already got a price cut of 50$, didn't it? Agreed, the chances that the ps3 will get a price cut are slim but there are still GT5 and Move.

I thought people learn from their mistakes...2008,2009 and now 2010. I'm hearing the word "Doomed" too often. People should think twice before typing that word.

No, that's not a price cut. Those old consoles will be gone very soon. When the Holidays come we'll only see a $300 and $200 console.

GT5 should be big for PS3... whenever that game actually gets released. I'm not expecting much for the Move. Its a $100 bucks for the starter kit, you still need the navigation control, some games require two Move controllers, and the software seems crappy so far. Its unlikely the Move will sell many consoles and its a hell of a lot cheaper to just get a Wii.

Knee jerk reaction.

The PS3 will surely overtake the 360 LTD, the main question is if its before or after the "next box" is released.

I say thsi with confidence only because of the strength of EU and Japan combined with the fact the PS3 still has price cut boosts left.....

Im not so sure the spike in America is really due to the $150 model to be hones of the, i thought it was, but we have two weeks of increasing numbers....th eonly reason it could increase a second week was the availability of the slim, not a big software bump.

Lol @ bolded, underlined, and italicized.

MS just added features and kept the price the same.  Once Kinect and Move launch, the bundle costs will likely make the overall console purchase more expensive than they are now.  This means both consoles will still have plenty of price cut boosts left as well as feature added boosts.

I think it is far more likely that these 2 consoles will keep swapping momentums until the end of the generation and the 360 will end up being ~5-6 million ahead of the PS3.  This is because of the year head start among other things.

Well, we aree both entitled to our opinion. When the PS3 began selling for $299 WW last year compared to a $299 and $199 xbox we see where WW sales end up.

Because of this i feel when the PS3 drops to $249 and $199 it will eat up a lot of space. Granted there are unknown variables......based on Kinect it could be easier or more difficult for Sony.

But i really think its  amatter of time...because who decides the end of the generation? Thats why i said its only whether it will be before or after one company introduces a new console.

As of now the PS3 will get a decent chunk boost in Japan and Others from GT....a pretty good boost for FFV13.

The holidays will be very important, but we essentially know the two companies hands right now. Kinect and Halo vs Move and GT. There shouldnt be too many surprises this holiday but i still stand by my opinion that its still only a matter of time only because the PS3 has never been MSRP'd for less than $299 yet the xbox is currently MSRP'd for $150.....

Only time will tell, we can debate until we are red in the face but we will have a better idea post Kinect/Move.

 



reason what u may be wrong. ps3 still 299$.

Why do you think Kinect is going to have such a massive effect on 360 hardware?

Massive hype.

MS are awesome at advertising.

Even more casual friendly than the Wii.

Justin Beiber... lol

MS advertising and massive hype dont always work - look at Alan Wake

I think the Wii already has the casual crowd sewn up so move/kinect wont make a big dent.

AW is not a good example of Microsoft's marketing, try Halo 3.
