1. no I'm not, I'm just not congratulating nor am I shocked it did roughly the same as it did last year
2. Jesus Christ man do you know what happens to a console when it's official price drops lower than $199, there's literally a similarity between every console, do you not know what that is....
3. a bundle and or/including a deal in almost EVERY major territory on the biggest game of the year that have only gotten bigger...EVERY YEAR, during the holiday no less. really? how low did you guys think it was going to do??? 10k... 11k??? honest question
You really don't get it do you. The 360 has been at $199 for many years now, past what is normally a peak for a console (actually way past it) so for it to be almost flat in its 6th year (3rd year at the same price) and to not have the buzz of Kinect launch, yes, that is amazing. I know exactly what happens to a console when it goes $199. Do you know what normally happens to a console 3 years AFTER it's gone $199? obviously not seen as you're not surprised by its sales.
Now I usually don't get in the middle of this kind of stuff, but the 360 and PS3 did just see two of the biggest releases of the year hit in the same week. Both of the games have a bigger market in the America's where the 360 is the dominate system.
Anyway, it is clear that unless Sony does something very daring, they won;t make in moves in America. Although it is a very impressive situation for the 360. Because as you point out it is in it's 6th year and still is doing very well. The following week might see another substantial rise in PS360 hardware with the 360 obviously winning out, but it will be interesting to see what happens the following weeks after black friday in America.
