Forums - Sony Discussion - Playstation 3 IS the Second Highest Selling Home Console of All Time outside NA, Europe and Japan, Only Beaten by PS2...

...In the "rest of the world". Which is of course most of the world, given North America, Europe and Japan only constitute about 15%  of all countries and 15% of the world's population.

Cross out PSP and DS as handhelds, as I am only talking about home consoles here. But could it eventually best PSP?

Your grasp of the English language (or lack thereof) astounds me. Could you please either change the title or the content of the post so the two are not in conflict with each other?

Your grasp of grammar is attrocious. My thread title is factually correct as is ably demonstrated in the OP. But for your sake I will add the necessary elipses.

Oh my fucking god man, I am a die hard Sony fan boy and even ill say you are full of shit. The PS3 wont beat the Wii, itll get close but it wont beat it and who the fuck cares about the rest of the world when NA and Europe are the only regions that have a large customer base.

Well don't you look the fool? PS3 has already beaten Wii, and PS1, as I have already shown.

Just relax, and try to use less profanity.

That doesnt say much considering how many provisors you put into the analysis. Still its interesting tosee how well all the companies are doing in emerging markets who will comprise an increasing proportion of the gamer community - obviously playstation seems to have the edge.

Hahaha :D I love it when stuff like this happens.



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Given that Sony will definitely be pushing the PS3 in the parts of the world that that the PS2 did so well, I wouldn't be surprised to see it eventually reach 18-20M in the rest of the world. I also think there is a definite possibility that it could go on to inch by the Wii.

Having said that, I don't think it was necessary for you to use title bait. "...In the rest of the world" should be in the title.

   

Delusional, the new N-word.

So, what I want to know is where do these "Rest of World" sales numbers really come from.  The Sony numbers look hugely inflated.



Stop hating and start playing.
