really?

$150 dollars off of $400

and being cheaper than the 360 for a total of 3 months this entire gen, and before that costing $100 more than the cheapest 360 this entire gen excluding 06-07...where it was $200 dollars more

and you and I both know PS3 shipments so I won't bother

Can you drop it? You've already derailed this thread enough. If you want to argue price points and shipments then create your own topic or do it somewhere else.

if that shit is amazing to you then the PS3 must be blowing your mind- oh wait never mind

Why should it? in 2008 (year of last 360 price cut, the 360 shipped just over 10 mill, the following year it shipped just over 10 mill. Then in 2010, 2 years after its price cut, it shipped just over 12 mill, and this year, 3 years since its price cut, it's going to ship over 13 mill.

The PS3 is doing great numbers but if you compare them? The PS3 is up over 2008 but it's had $150 cut off its price since.

Good, you don't listen to rhyme or reason, yo_john was right about you, what a volatile poster you are.



 

hahah Super Mario 3D Land had no effect in America or Europe. Surely now the 3DS is doomed. Japan saw a monstrous push but that's not the case now.

funy, something I didn't get the chance to ask in the GT vs Forza thread

Tell me I wrong

gotta love the cop out with you 360 fans, no arguments left say how the poster is being a big meany

This year, Sony have had a tonne of core exclusives and a price drop without Microsoft really doing anything other then the normal exclusives and they can't beat 360 consistently on a week-to-week basis.

In the core genre's of RPGs and Shooters 360 is dominating. Also on the casual side 360 is doing well. Kinect is still in the top 50 and Lego Harry Potter on 360 outsold even the Wii version.

Sony consistently has to have some concerns. Move is dead. A price drop wasn't enough to hold #1 in sales through the holidays. Also, Uncharted 3 is ok, but it should be exceptional in sales.

Think what you want about Microsoft, but they are outmaneuvering Sony on the marketing front every step of the way this generation.

The holidays are over?   damn, i must have slept through Christmas already! I could have sworn it was mid Nov with a 1.5 million yearly sales gap between PS3 and 360.

The holidays aren't over, you're right... But, this is where the real console sales are... From this week to the end of the year.  Everything previously was a warm up.

PS3 needs a comeback and they need it now.  Otherwise, the gains they made through the rest of the year will be mostly washed away with the large console sales from now until the end of the year.  It will be interesting to see sales the rest of the way through the year...

Super Mario 3D Land released on 11/13 in NA and 11/18 in EU, these numbers are up to 11/12.



^_^

Not trying to be the buzz kill here but people keep mentioning that the 360 is doing incredible numbers, which it is, but they bring up reasons like "It is doing this without a price cut", "It is doing this without the Kinect launch and is only 19k down YoY", etc...

You need to put this into perspective and understand that while it does not have the buzz from the Kinect launch, it does however have exclusive advertising pretty much World Wide for the years BIGGEST release, custom MW3 console bundles, $100 giftcard promotions pretty much nation wide here in the US, with the $100 Gamestop deal being the week of MW3 and Skyrim launch. Pretty much Gamestop's way of saying "Here, buy an XBox and get the 2 hottest releases on the house".

So yes, the numbers are incredible with the onslaught of big time releases and insane deals, but while it didn't get a $50 cut like the PS3, it sure as hell had $50-$100 promotions for well over a month now.

So if anyone is going to attempt to undermine PS3 sales at all and use the relatively small YoY increase or being flat YoY as a negative needs to keep it real and do the same thing with the 360 sales considering it is like the only console getting huge deals left and right to help shift stock.


Not knocking any specific consoles, just being real here, so nobody get bent out of shape please, lol.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Not shocked at the 360 numbers, but shocked at the people crying about it....

It happens every year in the build up to the holidays, you think people would learn by now.

Also just thought i would add something to the whole "Europe" thing. In case you have not heard countries like Spain,France,Italy,Greece and now maybe Germany are in financial trouble. In Spain 40% of ages 16-35 are out of a job. That is the gaming audience. I am surprised that the numbers for all the consoles are that high right now in europe considering the eurozone issues.

The sad thing is the numbers will continue to mirror last years and the year before that, and the year before that but yet people will still cry undertrackz for da ps3!! Sony never wins the holidays. Feck even November last year in the NPD 360 sold 1.4m and the PS3 sold only 500k. An almost 900k gap just from that one month.

I think very few people honestly expected PS3 to be doing better then 360 in the run up to holidays.
