A reasonable prediction from Turkish! That is something that I like to see. The defensive people in this thread however...jesus christ.

It's quite possible that PS3 will reach 50% marketshare of current gen consoles next year. Heck, it's more than likely.


Reasonable, but utterly meaningless.

thats the point.

Next year

- it will have its lowest sales for 4 or 5 years.

- It's sales will mean it will never get above 35% marketshare this gen.

 

Those are also true and reasonable for next year, will those be celebrated too?

Please don't try and give currency to a Turkish thread.  Its beneath you.

 

it isn't defensive posting, it's incredulous posting.

 

 

Everything is meaningless to you. Why would the fact that it will decline be celebrated? Marketshare is important, or so you've been saying these past months, isn't it?

Marketshare  is important when it's relevant. i.e in a new or maturing market or for a new console.

Here? In 2013? for the dying consoles? Not in the slightest.

The marketshare for the gen is important yes... that's a 3 way tie already and will remain so. 

Hooray!

 

PS3 has long legs and  everyone knew Wii and 360 will die in 5yrs. 360 was saved with multiplats,and this gen rise of FPS, COD. But with 360 failure rate I guess it is somewhere in 40-50 million relevant console sold.

As I said in other thread PS3 has many more years left. PS3 has been most selling console for some years and for next 5years this trend will continue.

Deal with it.

It is on topic. Again, try following conversations instead of making stupid comments or whining about crapping up a thread that was already a pile of feces in the original post :)


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I'll let the mods decide what to do with you.

still not sure why you were upset about a conversation I was having about sales with someone else, in a thread about sales. Either way, thanks for letting the mods decide and not banning me yourself.


I don't need to follow a whole conversation when I have highlighted the ridicilous statement in your last post. You didnot answer my question, instead you tried to be a rude smartass. Nothing more.

Now carry on, on topic this time.

The "ps3 has been the best selling console for some years". Well this year will make it 2, so not quite.

ps3 will be best selling console "for next 5 years" LMAO.

OR very close to 50%

 

This is the upwards march of PS3

 

+7% over last year

As you can see, it currently has 43,2%, it is more than likely to hit over 50%

 

My prediction for next year

 

PS3: 51%

360: 42%

Wii: 7%

In your dream keep your hopes up Turkish lol



I think some people don't want to accept the fact that the PS3 is still relevant, fresh and very enjoyable for many people at the end of a generation. You shouldn't accuse people of being PS3 or Sony fans because Sony deserves the love. Maybe you would understand it if you were able to enjoy your favorite as much. I seriously wonder if those childish/effeminate Xbox Live avatars stimulate aggressive, childish behaviour.

I know that the Ps3 will have a wonderful year next year. BUT.. how the hell did Turkish forget about the WiiU??


WiiU is like the Schrödinger's cat. It's a 7th generation console and an 8th generation console at the same time, it depends on if it's convenient or not to use it in an argument.



Referring to Schrödingers cat What you think it does: showing the world how well educated you are What it really does: outing yourself as big bang theory fan who tries to win the internet with quotes from tv.


I'm a Telecom engineer, I studied quantum mechanics and theory of relativity at the university. It was only a semester, but I know much more of quantum mechanics than anyone who has the knowledge from that TV series. Don't assume things about people you don't know.

Your Quantum Mechanics professor must be soooooo proud of that Schrödinger cat joke ;)

Well the Wii U might keep that from happening. Plus the steambox is coming out and like all consoles, it will sell out during launch. Valve is a very smart company so I don't think they will mess up the launch.


Wiiu is 8th gen why do people keep bringing this up?

Anecdotal evidence is irrelevant. I don't know any PS3 owners off of the Internet that play any Sony franchises. It's all Madden, Call of Duty, and Battlefield. See how that works? And guess what? Software sales show we're both right. 2 MS games in the 360's top 10 (again, not counting Kinect Adventures) and 2 Sony games in the PS3 top 10. Maybe people play CoD and other multiplatform games on 360 because they are better there? Anyone who has played CoD knows this to be the case.

If the 360 has a huge inflated user base because of RROD then what does that say about PS3 gamers in regards to software sales? Not a hot look.


Well ps3 has more exclusives so the sales are spread out rather than concentrated on 2 or 3 franchises for a whole gen

My whole point is MSFT was not spotted those sells, they earned them.

 

 

PS4 is just as likely to launch in 2013 as nextbox.  Also I've admited multiple times I'm playing what if but all these people saying MS "earned" those sales or bought xbox because they thought it was legitimately a better console are talking out of their ass.  Most of the 360 gamers I know own one exclusive (Halo or Gears), but usually they play COD and other multiplats.  Why are they playing those on 360?  Because it came out a year earlier and its main competition was %50 more expensive (not a small amount that could be overlooked for brand loyalty).  Of course if people would look at the free online thing and think into the future they would see that even that astronomical difference would be made up for, but people tend to look at the initial price on a shelf over thinking years down the road.  Let's also not forget the artificially inflated install base of 360 due to RROD.

You're saying everyone who bought a 360 did so only because they were ill informed, didn't care, or were otherwise mislead?

You - good sir - with all due respect - are talking out of your arse.

It's this kind of arrogance/reality disconnect - that is symbolic of where Sony find themselves at the moment. If only everyone was as educated, cultured and refined enough - they'd all buy Sony.

The possibility that anyone could find a competitors offering superior to what Sony offered, and willfully choose them over Sony because their product offered more of what they wanted/a better product in the areas they find important - be it Microsoft or Nintendo - just doesn't compute with some people does it?

Bullet point lists (usually starting with PSN +) will be brought out, maps of Europe will be imageshacked into posts, spreadsheets with "aligned launches"  and coloured lines will be attached - lectures will be delivered with all the subtlety, nuance and narrow world view of a student politician guest lecturing a civics class - and not one crap will be given by people who are happy with their choice of console this generation.

Sony clearly acknowledge where their competitors have strengths (and usually try to mimic it 12-18 months later) - I don't see why Sony diehards (a special breed apart from the regular Sony fans - who are generally open minded and level headed) have to wait for the Sony version of a competitors product to come out before they acknowledge "innovation".

The unwashed masses of low IQ, low income, poorly educated Nintendo/MS users all yearn to be free under Sony! If only they knew it.

Keep up the good work.


I didn't say every single one I said that's why they are LEADING.  Big difference.  There are plenty of people who like Xbox live arcade games, halo, gears, etc and would have picked 360 over ps3 on an even playing field, but 70 million? I think not
