the still will at the end of it be the clear winner.

the way a 400/500 dollar Ps3 is kicking 360s ass world wide its plain as day to see that at a 200/300 price this thing will easily pull PS2 numbers.

get it through your heads, a 5 year cycle did not bring in enough $, so they are going for 10 years this way they get 6/7 years of profits.

This post sounds like something pulled right out of SDF. lol especially at PS3 achieving PS2 numbers and at the 10 year thing.

 just casue you cant see big picture.

 

No differant then what hapepn with BluRay, you all were so sure it would fail and ruin the PS3 but now its a huge winner for Sony and a big advantage for PS3

If that 10 year plan really works out, has yet to be seen. PS2 is still doing well after 8 years but that's due to its current price point and the broad library of games and casual appeal.
I doubt that the hardcore and tech fanatics will still praise their PS3 in 8 years from now ... I don't even know why they made up that 10 year plan, probably to justify the initial high cost of the device ....
At least you most likely will have replaced your original PS3 several times by then due to failure of components over the years. A slot-in drive isnt made for years to come, as it seems that most electronics is only made for no longer than 2 years to work without failure ....

I wouldn't say that winning by about 25,000(22 March week) is "kicking ass".  I do have to ask though, how much has the PS3 out sold the 360 so far during its winning streak?

OT:  I thought that the PS3 would win by the end of the generation simply off of brand name and possible later-released games.  However, I did think that with a large price difference, the Wii would end pretty close to the PS3, and the PS3 wouldn't have the success of the PS2.

 People always forget that its not just Sony who gets money for every bluray product sold ... The blu ray group consists of 9 companies after all ... The PS3 player argument will fade away as soon as new 2.0 profile players are out which are by far cheaper in the near future anyway, and that won't be 10 years away from now ...

If you look at the big picture, don't look through Sony coloured glasses :)

 



i was right

haha wow i really like the honesty in this thread
and the subtle bitterness in some lol

i for one thought the PS3 would blow the 360
out of the water when it finally came out--at least, i was hoping lol
i didnt like M$ at the time (now i do, i have a 360 :) )
The Wii would sell well, but it was gonna be the next GC
with no 3rd party support.

Alas, everything switched places.
The Wii became the fastest selling console
PS3 never made it past 3rd place
and the x360 managed to get a hold
of the HD console market in the US
and to some extent UK (not Others, Sony
rules those waters).

I think Sony still has a shot at first place WW although it's pretty farfetched. They'll surely take EU from Ninty though.



Actually I was right on both counts. I had an argument with my brother a few weeks before either was released about which would win and I said the Wii would beat the PS3 by quite a margin.



I think the lesson of this generation is that not all console wars are determined in the first year. We shall see what happens, but it's funny seeing so many declare the Wii victorious just like PS3 fans before the 360 launched and just llike M$ fans after the first christmas all 3 consoles were out.



Well I do believe 1st spot is lost.

But the 2nd will eventually become Sony's.

Hah, its like some sony supporters are turning into Nintendo supporters.
