In this thread I wanna discuss the sales of PS3 and PS2 because surprisingly they're up 0.9M YoY and its something noteworthy to be discussed.

Sony FY Q4 2011

PS2 0.6M

PS3 1.9M

=2.5M

Sony FY Q4 2012

PS3+PS2 3.4M

They're up YoY by 0.9M, how did this happen?

Exclusives. The system that has more releases is the place to be, simple as that.

Also, Sony's figures shows once again how massively PS3 is undertracked on VGC.

Yeah, I think we can all agree there is some undertracking for not only the PS3 but also the 360.



PS3 - 



My Theory

When the rumor of the PS2 being discontinued appeared lots of people rushed to buy one just in case the one the already owned died.

My own PS2 was bought on UK launch day and it still works and I still went out and got one just in case, there are far too many games I don't want to lose the ability to play.



Because of Sony's nonsense we have a choice. PS2: is above 160m shipped (unlikely as they would probably announce the milestone) or
PS3 is above 360 in shipments. (sales could still be lower due to supply)



Around the Network

PS3 is likely finally above the X360 in shipments..
