Locked: PS3 Sales Drop

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 Sales Drop

Why have the PS3 sales dropped so much in the United States. A couple weeks ago the PS3 was dominating the 360 in Japan, US and Europe why a sudden drop in numbers?? Is there going to be another PS3 price drop anytime soon?? Also has the 80gb ps3 got a price drop because its 499.99 with the MGS4 bundle.

Yeah right. The 40 GB is sold out and everyone is waiting for the $399 80 GB.

Huge shortages for a machine that for months no one wanted?

What have Sony been doing with all the machines stockpiled, melting them down to make PS2s?

No actually...well partly true. In north america, there are lots of 40 gig models around but no one wants them when they can get a 80 gig for same price soon or a 360 for 100 dollars less.

 The drop isnt too big. The rise for the 360 is however

This is because the 360 saw a price cut, and the ps3 has been in short supply

Its also because of wii fit



I hope my 360 doesn't RRoD

no its just a console you don't want

I think it will pick back up in sales as more and more people start getting HD-TVs. I got one for MGS4, and its bue-ray capabilities.
