even though PS3 is doing bad I really wonder if Sony is expecting this sort of thing to happen and are pushing AAA titles back so they can have a big comeback when Wii sales normalize and PS3 droppes in price, 


 I don't think there is a general reason behind it. It will probably be more a decision of the single devolpers, than of the game department.  You can only demand  the full price in the first year. After this the game will sell only for lower prices (e.g. less profit). So it is not very attractive to publish a game on plattforms with only few users.

In my opinion one of the main reasons for the push back is the less than satisfing user base. They simply want to wait till there are more PS-3 owner, so that their title makes more money.

It's about ... to get ugly

Show us some numbers! 



NPD numbers for Canada are already released, if this is any indication for the US I think 400k units for the US could be possible! http://www.gamespot.com/news/6171067.html?om_act=convert&om_clk=newstop&tag=newstop;title;3 "Nintendo had a particularly good month, with the Wii outselling all hardware with more than 42,100 units sold. Following closely behind was the DS, with 34,900 systems sold. The rest of the hardware field lagged significantly behind, with the PlayStation 2 (18,000), Xbox 360 (12,800), and PlayStation Portable (12,100) rounding out the top five. The PlayStation 3 delivered 7,200 sales, edged out by the Game Boy Advance and its 7,900 units sold. Nintendo also fared well on the game charts, delivering the top four best-selling games of the month with Pokemon Diamond, Pokemon Pearl, Wii Play, and Super Paper Mario, in that order. While Diamond and Pearl for the DS are fundamentally the same game, consumers expressed a preference for the latter, as it outsold its counterpart 48,000 to 37,200 for the month. Sony's God of War II for the PlayStation 2 broke Nintendo's run on the charts with a fifth place finish and 11,600 copies sold. "
