Will PS3 top 100 million?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Will PS3 top 100 million?

like last year, where people kept saying that PS3 domination would start eventually

@Avinash_Tyagi, actually, ALL media was saying that PS3 is DOOMED.

So you're banking on that PS3 will be popular once certain things happen,
Some people will buy PS3 when GT5/FFXIII/MGS4/KZ2 will be released. Some will buy, when ps3 get 299$ or 249$ price.
Unless you have FACTS, that people won`t buy when all these options become true, there is nothing bad in stating that ps3 will reach 100 mln.

While stating that ps3 won`t reach 100 mln. based on what? On FIRST year sales? or x360 sales? WHY not on PSone and PS2 sales? WHY you ignore PSone and PS2 sales/games-sequels?
You don`t want PS3 to SUCCEED, right?

@Rath, Mario, Mario, Mario, Zelda. =)
25 mln. GC and 120 mln. PS2. End of story.

@Gnizmo, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles 1.36m
Tales of Symphonia  1.08m
You count 1-1,5 mln. sellers as BIG games?
Well, PS2 had over 200 million sellers. =)

Mass Effect, Dead Rising, Halo 3, and more that I am forgetting. You are dodging the point though. Why would a great Wii or Xbox exclusive make less impact that a PS3 exclusive given the games were equally well made and popular?
Those games coming to PC. PS3 games appeal to BIGGER user base. Playstation Consoles always had BIGGER variety in genres.
As an addendum I would like to ask for you to back up one of your statements with some facts. Which games on both the 360 and PS3 are better on the PS3? So far as I have heard every single one released has technical problems on the PS3 but not the 360 making the 360 one the superior game.
We speak about 2008-2012 sales. Can you name these games?
Well it is a fact that it costs Sony $400 to make a PS3 by their own admission. It is a fact that they sell it to retailers for less than that. It is a fact that PS3s are sold at a loss.
By HOW much LESS? provide me FACTS. Ps3 TODAY still cost 400$ to produce? How do you know? You work for Sony or What? Just your opinion? Ok.

ha no.. I say 50 million max.



You know CrazzyMan, i would say your nickname fits you perfectly. I'd also like to correct one thing you said about you: only FACTS don't work on you.
You are trying to say that Mario Party, Mario Kart, Wii Fit, Final Fantasy, Zelda, Monster Hunter and Smash Bros. are all something else than big franchises, and then you give us list of games where most of them are games that no one have ever heard of.

Maybe i try to level with you, but let's try it your way, if you would understand this better:
FF13, MGS4 and GT5 don't help PS3 a bit, since all their fans have moved to Wii Fit. I got proof.
Wii Sports have outsold anything on PS2, as you can see, the transition from PS2 to Wii have already happenend.
Only the price holds Wii back, with Wii costing 50, all who have bought 360 and PS3 will dump them and get Wiis because IT'S THE EXPERIENCE FOR THE MONEY! From 50 to 299 it's a lot more than 250 to 400.
SMG have sold 5 million, so the GTA audience have already moved to Wii.

Nintendo games sell only on Nintendo system.

bdbdbd had earlier in the thread the best arguments against PS3 selling anywhere near those amounts. (and against the argument that WW market will expand to new territories like China/russia/india in a significant way)



Crazzyman, I feel you are biting off more than you can chew. You are trying to argue four arguements at once, are getting flustered and are striking out wildly. Your first arguement is, although possible, isn't likely. The PS3 just doesn't have enough momentum to sell 100 mil :( On you list of "exclusives" you asked how many would also be on the Wii, but you fail to realize that most of them would also be on the 360 as well. Remember this is a 3 console + comp war.



Why hate systems that bring you great games?

Because it is selling significantly slower than the PS2 did world wide. This site doesn't have hard data on the PS1 so I can't make that comparison, but I suspect it would be less than favorable. Let me sumarize in a way you can understand.

FACT: PS3 is selling much slower than the PS2 in almost every market.
FACT: PS3 versions of PS2 games have sold far less than expected.
FACT: No console has ever had a turn-around like the one you are predicting for the PS3.
FACT: PS3 has lost a lot of exclusives since launch to the other competing systems.

 At least. Burma alone will make 50 million sales, coz' they're teeming with cash...



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

@bdbdbd,

only FACTS don't work on you.
What FACTS???
then you give us list of games where most of them are games that no one have ever heard of.
Look at the games in bold.

FF13, MGS4 and GT5 don't help PS3 a bit, since all their fans have moved to Wii Fit. I got proof.
Wii Sports have outsold anything on PS2, as you can see, the transition from PS2 to Wii have already happenend.
Where is LOGIC?

Only the price holds Wii back, with Wii costing 50, all who have bought 360 and PS3 will dump them and get Wiis because IT'S THE EXPERIENCE FOR THE MONEY! From 50 to 299 it's a lot more than 250 to 400.
SMG have sold 5 million, so the GTA audience have already moved to Wii.
WHY it`s wrong to buy PS3 for HD experience and CHEAP wii for party games?

@aceburg0413,

First 40 games PS3 ONLY.

@Gnizmo,

Oh really??? http://vgchartz.com/hwlaunch.php?cons1=PS2&reg1=All&cons2=PS3&reg2=All&cons3=X360&reg3=------&weeks=80 - YOU FAIL.
FACT: PS3 is selling much slower than the PS2 in almost every market.
Oh really???
PS3 selling BETTER in Europe - http://vgchartz.com/hwlaunch.php?cons1=Wii&reg1=Europe&cons2=PS3&reg2=Europe&cons3=PS2&reg3=Europe&weeks=50
So what about your "FACT"??? YOU FAIL
It not doing that good in Japan or USA? It`s just FIRST year.
FACT: PS3 versions of PS2 games have sold far less than expected.
WHAT ps2 games sold better then PS3 versions with 9 mln. consoles on the market? Where is that FACT? Bring game sales then.
FACT: No console has ever had a turn-around like the one you are predicting for the PS3.
PSone? Look at first 2 years sales.
FACT: PS3 has lost a lot of exclusives since launch to the other competing systems.
To whom? To x360? PS3 Still have over 40 exclusive games in 2008. How many x360 has?
