Will the PS3 and 360 gap grow or close in 2011?

Forums - Sales Discussion - Will the PS3 and 360 gap grow or close in 2011?

A lot of people predicted PS3 would close the gap significantly in 2010. Even 360 fans thought it would.

In case people forgot, the gap was about 3.6 million in October of 2010. It jumped back up to 5 4.5 million by the end of the year though.

 

In my opinion the gap will grow primarily because of the Kinect. The 360 now appeals to both casual and core gamers.

The only thing Sony could possibly do to sell more consoles is another price cut. But they won't do that unless MS cuts prices first.

THOUGHTS?!???!???

It will Grow to a close.



Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

End of 2011 I think gap will be bigger then 6,5 mio in favour for X360.

It will be closer than now, at least that's what I think (and hope).

Kinect can destroy the PS3 though, and if the gap has to shrink then it has to shrink a lot before Christmas of this year lol.

I'm waiting the financial reports to make comments.



if there's no pricecut for the PS3 I think the gap will grow due to Kinect's casual market. But, if MS doesn't surprise with good exclusives this year, it may be possible that some core gamers that only own a 360 will be willing to buy a PS3...what do you think?



Game of the year 2017 so far:

5. Resident Evil VII
4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
3. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
2. Horizon Zero Dawn
1. Super Mario Odyssey

At least this time you didn't say "Undertrackedz"

 

On topic: I think the gap will continue to be about 4-6 million. USA and UK leans to the X360, The rest of EMEAA and Japan to the PS3.

That's a fact... so I don't need remember every time.

OT: After financial adjustments in all consoles the previous comments should be reviewed... so I will wait more 2 weeks.

What's a fact? Every console has had undertracked years and overtracked years. You like to cherry pick, it seems.
