I think the big flaw with your first analysis is the fact that chances are the next Xbox will also be Backward compatible, thus cutting the 360 legs right underneath it, if MS are in the mood to listen to the 360 owners, they'll also allow the gamertags to be transferred to the new console. If anything I think Xbox Live will continue going strong similar to the case when Original Xbox live kept going until several months ago.

If you meant the new games being 360 compatible, chances are the companies will also to do that seeing as it'll likely be cheap ports like the games on PS2

I agree, I didn't mean it will have zero support, just no support from MS. MS can't control the third party. They will likely move on to the next generation.

I think the installbase of 70 m is too big to ignore for third parties, a quick port and probably about 100-200k will justify the porting costs and some profit on top. What I don't see is anymore first party games coming similar in the case of PS3 exclusives not making an appearance on PS2.

Bottom line is, 3rd parties will make the games for the next gen and will make crappy ports for X360 and PS3 like PS2, see World At War, Fifas etc.

There is a year difference between the HD consoles and fanboys seem to completely disregard that. On a time from launch basis the PS3 is beating the 360 by a good margin.

Au contraire, it's the fanboys that insist on aligning the launch dates so they can claim that PS3 is the king, boo hoo MS got a year head start, people are cherry picking as if releasing a product earlier is an illegal practice.

Gen started when MS released the 360, so the sales of all the consoles entering that gen count from the beginning. Wii came out later and still managed to whoop the 360.


Believe what you will but the data shows that Sony is in fact winning. However Nintendo is winning all around.

Data shows X360 with more total sales and even as of last week higher weekly sales.  So data doesn't show the PS3 as winning.

Has the PS3 done a good job of reducing the X360's initial lead?  Absolutely.  Does that mean the PS3 is currently the better seller?  Not at all.

Do you pay attention at all? Because apparently you can't read.

"Sony is in fact winning", "So data doesn't show the PS3 as winning".

That was a bit of a premature judgement by you.

"Does that mean the PS3 is currently the better seller?  Not at all."

^ I think that links to the last weeks numbers.

For fuck sake READ!!!!!!! From LAUNCH!!!! PS3 is outselling the 360

Yes the 360 has more total sales at this time (it had a year head start) and YES the 360 had a better week this last week. Your not seeing the point here.

Fanboys also seem to be forgetting about Sony having bigger fanbase and been out longer on the market.

Yes I totally see "From Launch" there in that sentence. You need to learn to control your temper tbh, you're letting your bias show like a lighthouse on a dark cloudy night.

...so if we were to adjust sales for comparable time on the market, which console has sold more? I have been wondering this for a while. seems odd that I havent scene this on the forums before. any info would be great.

And...?

PS1 easily outsold Saturn and it was released later.

PS2 easily outsold Dreamcast and it was released later.

PS3 isn't outselling anything and is the biggest financial failure in gaming history. Lets stop being so worried about Xbox 360 and focus on that.

How convenient that you deleted my previous quotes from this post. They were clearly there. Scroll up and you'll see them.

I deleted them to stop the pyramid piling up and I do that whenever I create a long pyramid quote with someone else :/, if you mean from launch you mention it in the sentence. Simple as. Before you begin to critisize others,do remember, not everyone is perfect.

This was my original post that got quoted. Do you not understand what it says?

"There is a year difference between the HD consoles and fanboys seem to completely disregard that. On a time from launch basis the PS3 is beating the 360 by a good margin."

Meaning that from the time ps3 has been out and if you compare that same amount of time and compare it to the 360s time from launch the ps3 is higher.

I will admit on my higher part where I said "FROM LAUNCH" that was an error on my part, but I fiugred you were speaking about the first quote as it was QUOTED.
