Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Ps3 will FINALLY pass the xbox360 at some point,so what,s the big deal?it,s only 2013

I still don't get why its such a big deal for PS3 fans to see it overtake Xbox 360? You don't see 360 fans making a big deal about their console being in second place, so why is it a big deal for PS3 fans to see their console in second place? Both consoles lost their owners a lot of money, and only now the 360 has made up for its huge loses.
Sony management/ owners will always see the PS3 as a failure cause it lost them so much money. Even Microsoft management would have been disappointed that its taken so long for their console to cover its loses from previous years.

With the Vita on death's door and the PlayStation brand's share of the home console market going from first to worst this gen, having the PS3 just barely inch in front of the 360 in global sales at the end of the gen will be a small moral victory for Sony fans.

Kinda like the way a huge underdog sports team defies the odds beats the spread, or for our Euro brethren, the way a football team avoids relegation on the very last game of the season.  They don't actually win anything big, but it's a moral victory for their fans.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

In my opinion, I think ranking the consoles along first, second, and third place does not tell the whole picture of the competition for this generation. For example, while the Wii has led the generation in hardware sales, it's also important to recognize it's sharp decline, as well as where much of the third-party support focused on.

A reasonable PS3 fan will recognize that no matter how this generation ends up, the 360 managed to hold onto second place for the majority (or all the generation). However, a reasonable 360 fan should also recognize that the PS3 has been in the market for a shorter duration, and managed to sell at a higher rate across its lifetime. Lastly, both fans should recognize that there is currently less than a 1% difference in total hardware sales between the two (according to the information on the front page).

Overall, this has been a very competitive generation, and this doesn't even include all of the gamers on PC, phones, tablets, and so on.



Uhhh you seem to forget we are on a "Sales" Site.......This is the kind of stuff you talk about on a "Sales" Site.....

Ps3 to pass Wii??? I don't think so!

How many Wii did you expect to sell lifetime? PS3 will sell around 115m (110~120m).

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

@ ethomaz. Would love to see your YOY breakdown to explain how Ps3 can go from 70 odd million to 115m! For the record i believe the Wii could possibly reach 112m max, possibly more if Nintendo can somehow prolong its life in the developing markets. Wii mini could be the key.

At the current rate its outselling the 360 it would take nearly 2 years for the PS3 to outsell the 360 putting us in late 2014.

Console sales will slow even more next year making it likely PS3 wont pass it until early 2015.

At that point we are firmly into next gen, would it even matter at that point?



Every year I heard it it does make ma laugh
