after a ps3 price cut, the 360 will get hammered and not by a measly 20-40k like how the 360 is doing now.

 

How long has that been said? And hasn't the PS3 had numerous price cuts already? I mean, it was a $600 console at release. It's sure not anymore...

When your 360 sells a million consoles LTD in Japan then come back and see us, good luck in Japan 360 ,you CERTAINLY need it. That works both ways, ya know.

 

Maybe you hadn't noticed, but Japan is the 3rd most sales behind US and Others. Japan's not nearly as important to a console's success as you seem to think. As the 36o has proven. 

Even with dismal sales in Japan it still got a sizable lead over the PS3.

And it wasn't too long ago that the PS3 was moving less than 10k sales per week over there. Those are far from impressive numbers.

whats up guys, why do you care about sony so much. sony is screwed. they are offering you a worse console than microsoft for twice the price and you still buy this crap cause of the ps2 era... pff stupidity has no end.

 

So you joined just to insult other peoples' intelligence. My prediction: you won't last long on this site

 

 too bad i joined a year ago and i have visited this site since the beginning of the "war".

a true gamer who plays games and not brand names will always buy a 360 over a ps3.

thats also why 360 owners buy more games. most ps3 owners are like "look, i bought a SOOONNYY PLAYSTATION 33333!!!!! Its huge, black and its a SOONNNY PLAYSTATION 333!!!" thats it

I'm now counting down to your taste of the banhammer. We'll see how many more posts. Up the ante a little willya because you can read minds now and understand why people made their purchase decisions.

Examples: If a "true gamer" is a "true" fan of the mgs series or still wants to play his ps2 games along with the new generation, he would have bought a ps3 just because it's a SONYYY PLAAAAYYYSSSTTTATTIONNNN 33333 right? Very smart thinking on your part.

 

 

Kreshi just got OWNED!!!



                                                                                                                                            

the price cut was a miscalculation.

no one think m$ would do so many pricecuts after loosing 6 billions with the last xbox.
360 its cheaper than the ps3 and going by the price of DSi

i think sony still will outsell, europe and japan together are too strong markets, and sony still have their big cards in those terroritories exclusive.
especially GT5.

CTifer: there is a mass market price that its under 299$, you won't find a ps3 for less than 399$.

the 360 on the other way around can be found for 199$.

and no the ps3 in japan still four times of the 360 sales.

So the console with the LEAST LTD sales is > than the console with more LTD sales, lol ok if you say so. And how well have the 360's JRPGs been selling in Japan or WW for that matter? Now how would they have sold on the PS3? Yup, just checkin'. I'm not hating on 360, just one-sided people who need to get their facts straight.

Thank You Jo - someone who DOES have their facts straight

 



                                                                                                                                            

Well the PS3 did force the 360 to cut its price WW, and twice in Europe. Microsoft really has used the last of its trump cards in the console war at this point, and the PS3 has still sold more this year.

But I think we all assumed the PS3 would get a price cut. No one could have anticipated the economies horrendous year. Sony has their hands tied. The PS3 still has a good chance to be a hit, but the 360 will always have the pricing advantage, and really has most of the same games the PS3 has.

"I don't think a Japan-only exclusive comes anywhere close to "take back it's JRPG crown". Expecially since the PS3 never had this crown."

Okay, I'll rephrase that. After Final Fantasy XIII is released exclusively for the PS3 in Japan (a game that will cut at least one million consoles off of the 360's worldwide lead just with its sales in that territory alone) and combined with the fact that the superior blu-ray version of Final Fantasy XIII will also be exclusively available on the Playstation 3 in America and Others (a game which will be "the version" of the game to have in comparison to the inferior dvd version which will be exclusively available on the 360 in Others and the Americas); the Playstation 3 will take back the Playstation family's JRPG crown which it has had for the last two console generations. I hope that makes things clearer for you.

 

Has the PS3 even got a game thats sold a million copies in Japan alone?  To say FFXIII will push a million consoles for the PS3 in Japan is very funny.   IMHO it will never happen and it will be lucky to sell 1million copies its first year (in Japan).  I would imagine it will push sales for the console like MGS4 did.  Which was quite a lot, but certainly not a million.

As to the fact that it will be on several dvd's instead of 1 blu-ray, it won't matter if you put the game on your harddrive.


This is the make or break season for PS3 (IMO).  Good luck PS3 you certainly need it.

 

When your 360 sells a million consoles LTD in Japan then come back and see us, good luck in Japan 360 ,you CERTAINLY need it. That works both ways, ya know.

 

The difference being, I never said x game was going to sell a million consoles.  Which was absurd.

By the way, I do own a PS3 and an Xbox 360?  So the LTD sales in Japan matter very little to me, either way I win.

And this is where you and I will always agree, get them ALL and we're ALL WINNERS!!!

Unfortunately we'll have to see about the effects of the price cut.

Sales vs Profit in Q4 this year.

If sales and profit are both good then obviously it was the right thing to do, but sadly people don't have the patience to wait for results.

 



Tease.
