You can't use last years PS3 growth to suggest that it will continue to grow next year when right now it's down year to year. Last year the PS3 got a redesign and a huge price cute. Niether of those things are going to happen again. It might get a slightly larger harddrive or Move in the box and it might get a small price reduction, but it's never going to get the boost it did last year. As for it being number 1 in 2011 I don't see that happening either. If they drop the price, even a little, MS and Nintendo will do the same. Even if Move suprises everyone and sells more than it's meager numbers right now it will still have to compete with Kinect which at the very least should give Xbox 360 the same kind of boost. Next year should look a lot like this year.

Even though it is down YOY, it's been up week to week very consistently for a long time now.

Japan usually signals trends first and I don't see a reason why it shouldn't be the case now. The PS3 is already beating the Wii there, so it's not improbable that it will do the same worldwide next year. But it's not going to happen because the PS3 will be selling like crazy, rather because the Wii will be down by so much. Just like in Japan.

Pretty much this. Sometimes other's incopetence is your best wepon (take that Ninty!)



Above: still the best game of the year.

You're a bit too obsessed over the sales of the PS3. You always try to spin news in the PS3s direction positively and just look at your sig, you actually get upset/angry when it isn't at least outselling the Xbox 360.

As for the topic at hand...

It's really hard to tell which console is going to be the top selling console next year. I have been here since 2006 and if you look at the threads made over the years each and every console has had its generation winning parade and its doomsday parade. All of them have been temporary things eventually thrown off by a move from the competitive companies.

It is of course possible that the PS3 could be the top selling console next year, but what I'm saying is that someone else could easily make the argument that the Wii or Xbox 360 will be the top selling console of next year as well. I'm not really sold  based on the original topic that the PS3 will out sell the Xbox 360/Wii. I think Nintendo especially have been quiet for a long time and are long overdue with a big Wii announcement. I think the Xbox 360 can still have a price cut and add value to the box. I think the PS3 will have a price cut as well and sales will jump. All these things will boost sales for each console but what you have to realize is that the other companies aren't just going to stand by and watch, they're going to make big moves too. It all comes down to which move will have the biggest impact.

Dont forget that last year revision was accompanied with a 100$ reduction (from 399$ to 299$). We can safely say a big percentage of the sales were because of the pricecut, not the revision. Its not like the revision actually add something. Next price cut will not be as big, as some fan re-purchase a slim PS3, but surely in the same ball park.



PS3 is taking over in 2008 (My friend Nick)

You watch EVERYONE is gonna have a PS3 in 2009 (some gamestop employee he even tried to get me to buy a PS3 and sell all my Xbox 360 games and console ROFL)

2010... ps will take over (internetz)

Now...

I believe PS3 will be the #1 selling console in 2011 (BHR-3)

It's getting old...

 

I'll tell you what I believe... I believe some people need to take a break around here.



All gaming systems, consoles/PC, have thier perks... why fight over preferences? I like Coke and you like Pepsi, that's it, let's not fight over which toy we like best cause that's what they are. Is someone's preference in a toy important or is the relationship between you and your neighbor more important? Answer is obvious, but THE most important thing is your relationship with God almighty. God Bless you in Jesus's name.

I can communicate without talking... I can send a loved one money without actually sending money... and I can commit theft without the product disappearing, the point of theft is the point of theft not one of it's possible symptoms which is the product dissappearing. The thief wants to gain something without paying for it, that's the point of theft, the thief doesn't have to care or anybody else has to care if the product dissappears. The product dissappearing is just a possible symptom of theft. Gifts are sacrfices, in order to give a gift, it has to be a genuine sacrfice/gift, meaning a copy of the game isn't still in your PC. Piracy is theft and/or being a culprit of theft.

Maybe BHR-3 didnt say that in 2008-9-10. I know I didnt. For 2011, with the current Wii performance and 2011 PS3 exclusives it doesnt seem that much impossible as compare to 2008-9-10. We still lack some informations though, how kinect will be received and what Nintendo have up their sleeves for Wii in 2011.



But how can it be on top if its dead in America? http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=117162&page=2

Anyway none of those games you listed are huge realy. I doubt that any of them are likely to sell more than 5M copies. You need huge games which sell huge numbers to sell large numbers of systems. The Xbox 360 is ahead because it had 5M sellers at the PS3 launch and 3M sellers when they actually counted for anything as system sellers and Halo in 2007 and again in 2010 when Sony could barely get GT5 in for 2010. Sure those games will sell well, but they will be white noise against the fluxuations of PS3 sales week by week. If they do sell systems you probably couldn't tell.



Tease.

I only mentioned the redesign, I clearly focused on the, as I put it, "huge price cut". The PS3 will probably never have another boost like it did last year.



pleas read my signature...that is all what is left now (americans are waiting for the price-cut)...well said BHR-3, my viewpoint coincides well.

I see, but a price cut from 299$ to 199$ is likely, if its not 2011 its 2012.
