I'll also add I've been noticing PS3 slowly gaining on 360 for a while now and have been wondering if PS3 will actually beat 360 on a NPD report in 2013.

It will I'm almost sure of it unless 360 gets a huge price cut. Like a 100 dollar price cut

I finished the game yesterday and that´s exactly my opinion about it.


haha I KNEW IT! I hope they understand this going forward. Gameplay is the most important for sure but when a game lacks in atmosphere, story and other aspects so does the appeal of it.

if we are this out for the US does it mean euro is out too,unless i am missing something it is a fair way down on what is being sold



nintendos numbers confirmed major undertracking for everything in Europe as well. Ps3 360 gap is less than a million

Out of interest (if you can say), would you be seeing something similar in Gamestop too (a gradual decline in the ratio of sales between the PS3 and Xbox 360), if you're basing this statement on the recent NPD reports? Or are you saying that, just within Gamestop, you've been seeing a similar trend?

Also, I´m really enjoying Sly Cooper, far more than I thought I would.I had never played a Sly game before, and it´s being a nice surprise.I´m positively surprised it charted, my contribution is probably there :p

That's what they need to do. They never did do a price cut during the holidays, which was just stupid. Surprisingly their sales were still pretty good worldwide. With a $100 price cut they would have done at least 15% - 20% better. I think (and hope) they will announce a price cut at the E3. They need to push as much of that inventory out the door before the Next XBox launches.

You should pick up the "Sly Collection" http://www.gamestop.com/ps3/games/the-sly-collection/78155

Well worth the price. I just started playing the first game not to long ago.

Im basing this off of trends Ive been seeing at work.  I just never said anything in case things were very different with other major retailers.  NPD makes it appear though its with all retailers in NA
