PS3 sales are down the first full week of the 360 price drop, ZOMFG!!! Price cut PS3 is necessary!!!

No, calm down people. Let's wait a few weeks okay? Look at Japan? 360 is falling every week since it's price-drop high. Look at America? 360 is falling post-price drop also. If I were a predicting man, I would predict things back to normal LBP week, with PS3 beating 360 across all territories, but I'm not one, but things will be back to normal in a few weeks. Breathe, stretch, shake, and let it go.

do you know the word "shortages" or "selling out"

DMeisterJ,

"PS3 sales are down "

You know sales are dropping since the release of the 80gb each weeks ... I m not sure the xbox360 price cut is truly behind.

What is sure is that the xbox360 nbrs are a lot higher than last week but last price drop have made the same effect.



Time to Work !

Let M$ have their 15 Minutes for outselling PS3 for 1 week in Europe



Let's not go too crazy simply because 360 sales went up right after a price cut...

Still, it's a good week for Microsoft. (That is, as long as you care about raw unit sales and can ignore the massive losses going on in the background.) The real test will be what happens in the next 3-4 weeks leading into the holiday season.

Yep, I also know people are really quick to use the term when their system of choice has an unexplainable drop in sales.  Usually it's accompanied with photo proof (anecdotal, of course) of a store or two with a sold-out sign, therefore making the system sold out.  Generally they are proven wrong in the coming weeks when sales stay on the same low trend, and they give up the fight when everyone moves on to another story, thus being able to make bold statements, be wrong, but not be proven wrong since no one has the time to follow that person around when they are proven wrong.  So yes, I am familiar with the terms, why?

Unfortunately this is probably the truth because these moments like this that scare people are usually pretty funny.  Both sides always freaking out with bull either way because people never understand the trends.

More than likely 360 will fall next week to about 70k level and possibly level off in 60k level.  Unless it really was inaffective and eventually fall out to 50k level again.  PS3 will stay in between 60k-80k until LBP week then get boosted and stay up for the holidays until in mid January to early February when it goes back to normal if not slightly higher depending on the success of the brand in the holidays.

And just in case if anyone is wondering Wii will probably stay in the 130k-150k range until Wii Music's release where it'll also see some boosts and stay up there until the holidays and probably not come back down to that range until same timeframe as PS3 if ever on average.  Unless of course shortages in areas such as UK and France.

 ==> I was also thinking about shortages but ioi have made no comment and MS too.

So I m not sure. But that is the main question to ask for sure.

that is your way of looking at it... but the low supply too japan has never been upped much so when it sells much inventory will disappear and shortages are the result =]

Good numbers for 360 but was expecting even a bigger gap with the price drop. Regardless, MS now has control of all three regions... for now.

Now the real question is how the 360 can beat the Wii for a week? That thing is a BEAST.



It's just that simple.
