hold on I'll be back just making a thread called "360 is doomed in EMEAA and Japan".
As funny as this is, it's almost justified. Why make a thread like this? Literally, the exact same thing could be done to the 360, especially in Japan.
Way I see it, PS3 is never going to overtake the 360 in the States, but that's already been established.
ugh, a) this isn't a troll thread, the OP is an adamant PS3 fan. But one bad turn does not JUSTIFY another, you're only saying that because it's against the PS3 ... fgs
I'm not saying it's a troll thread, I'm saying it's not needed. I said it's almost justified, I didn't say it WAS justified (worded carefully). And you really need to stop this "it's only because it's about PS3" stuff, Seece. You're above that and it's not relevant.
I hold my tounge more than enough on that subject thank you, and it's not even "almost" justified. The thread isn't put across in a good light and isn't word correctly, but a discussion on how the PS3 still can't manage to come up trumps in the US/Americas despite a massive turnaround elsewhere could be a good one for those interested.
Bingo, which is why it has received the backlash that it has (not to mention he has yet to post anything else in his own thread).
The reason(s) is/are simple why PS3 hasn't done as big in the US and continues to trail Nintendo and Microsoft: (price and perception). I know, I live here, and I can tell you this place is far more 360/Wii supported than PS3 because Sony made considerable mistakes (but the ones here were far more detrimental). The PlayStation brand is still strong here (after all, people still love the PS2), but the PS3 won't capture that.
Of course, these are things many knew already and it won't change this gen, despite price cuts and software. It's the loser in the US this time around, which is something anyone rational won't argue. My complaint about anything is how things are done, and rarely about their very existence. Had the thread been titled: (PS3 continues to trail it's competitors in the US. Where can things tighten up?), it would still be a no-brainer subject, sure, but one that at least starts of reasonably and can continue that way.
Edit: Having looked at your edit, you have things still a bit misconstrued. I didn't say the 360 was "doomed" in EMEAA (frankly, I don't think any console is doomed anywhere). I said you could say it's in the same boat as the PS3 elsewhere, particularly in Japan.
