My, my... your lack of reading comprehension is alarming. I sincerely hope you're doing this on purpose just to boost your post count.

If you think I lack reading comprehension then I honestly dont think you know what you are saying. Or at least, what you say means

And therein lies your problem.  But hey, I suppose we're all wrong huh?  Oh, and paranoid...

No, only slowmo is paranoid which is comments have shown that I have provided.

Also: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=158991&page=1# Look at the picture People don't call soft drinks Coke except for the south like I said.

You actually created a thread on this topic based on our conversation? That's rich.

But you didn't just say people from the south, did you? You said, "hicks from Texas", whereas I said "many people"... and there are several states on that map that are red, no?

But you know what? I'll even concede to your single point on what people call soft drinks in the US. One point for Max!

I don't know what you're babbling about.

So I'll just say again. A cheaper Xbox 360 and some nice bundle software with the entry model would have boosted sales.

MS didn't really if PS3 surpassed the 360 in overall sales so it didn't happen.

I'm sorry you mistake reality for "babbling", but it is what it is. If I'm wrong, then how do you explain the higher priced PS3 outselling its closest competition? 

Also, whether Microsoft "cared"  if the PS3 ever passed their product or not is irrelevant (though I agree that at this point, they probably don't). If it was going to happen, I firmly believe that more price cuts may have only gotten them so far. 

No, your babbling is just your opinion. The Elite 360 cost more than a PS3.  The entry model includes no HDD or games.

For the record, I'm just saying further price cuts to the 360 would have slowed the gap from closing. Why is that getting you so worked up?

Worked up? Don't see it, but you certainly seem so, given your improper (and random) use of the word "babbling".

Anyway, the 360 has been cheaper than the PS3 throughout the gen, hurting Sony most in the US (your vague example doesn't change this fact). That considered, it has been able to claw back much of the lead the 360 gained and will overtake it in total, worldwide numbers.

To me, that means that, at this juncture, the PS3 is the more desired product.

Can we now expect a thread from you on southern population too?

Are you going to argue that most people who live in the south dont live in texas?

Oh no, I wouldn't think of it.  Besides, I've already given you a win on the topic of generic soft drink names.  After all, it's the least I can do.

You should also give me a point for proving Slowmo is paranoid when it comes to Ps3 fans too since I have provided evidence for that. And then admit I know what I'm talking about and most people in NA don't call gaming devices xbox.



The Ps3 had a large loss then the original XBox. The XBox 360 was profitable in it's 3rd year. With XBox Live subscription it was even more profitable. The PS3 was a complete failure in terms of making Sony money. Sure it sold a lot of units and is catching up the XBox 360 in sales finally, but it lossed a lot of money and a lot of market shares over the last 6 years. Even those M$ Kinect didn't have an abundance of killer titles, it still sold more then the MOVE and sold more software then the MOVE as well. The Kinect was released after the MOVE.

Sorry, but I don't see paranoia in the evidence against Slowmo.

And regarding gaming terminology I don't have a map, but I know what the popular console brand is here in the US. When people not informed enough to refer to a specific game console mention games, they usually say "Xbox". It's not as common to hear "Playstation" in this context anymore. When they show a game system in a TV show, it's usually a 360 (or Wii for a while), but rarely is it a PS3. So unless you have another map proving otherwise, I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.

No, you were babbling.

I'm not denying that the bolded part. I'm just saying MS could have slowed the gap from closing. But you can't seem to get through your head that's all I'm saying. Further price could have done it.
