Forums - Gaming Discussion - If the 360 ends up at $99, does the PS3 eventually surpass it in sales?

Does the PS3 surpass the 360 in sales if there is a $99 360?

Yes
No

There was talk of once next generation hit, the PS3 would eventually still surpass the 360.  But, if a model of the 360 drops to $99, is that going to happen?

If for nothing else, it's MS move to prevent PS3 from getting too far ahead, or ending up ahead by the time it's all said in done. If you have a $99 console, it will surely sell plenty more than PS3. Just a sad tactic. So that one day when we all look back at this generation of gaming, MS can say, "We sold more than anyone!!!" But we'll all know the truth.

By the time the 360 is $99 (4GB), there will be at least a $125 PS3 (HDD included).

No console of the seventh generation will reach Wii levels, you know.



If they reduce the price at E3 to $99 or by November to $99 and say 75 in the UK/Europe... then no PS3 wont pass it.

How ironic.  Sad tactic? lol

How many price reductions as PS3 had.  How much of a cold shower did Sony have to take JUST to make the PS3 sell?  Trust me.  By the end of this gen, $99 console or not, the 360 will have made a whole lot more profit than the PS3 ever will.

PS3 will pass 360 in sales regardless of what price it is.
360 cuts = PS3 cuts.
Sony isn't stupid anymore.



i think ps3 could surpass 360 before the release of this $99 console, 360 could take back the lead in december and ps3 would get it back in 2014.

people were speculating ps3 will even overtake wii when ps3 is available for 99$ but If Microsoft does it's a bad tactic.

Hang on... when do you expect it to overtake then?  In the next 3 months?
