Forums - Gaming Discussion - Fanboy-wars. But only with good arguments!... No flamming and stuff...

Ill throw the heat up for the Sony fanboys: Wii has had a great start. And PS3 didn't, as we all might agree! Now PS3 fans are all eager awaiting Gundam to save PS3 sales in Japan... But i think Nintendo will ship like 100.000 Wii's to prevent the PS3 from harvesting to much sales increase. And with the release of Fire emblem, Naruto and Sonic. In Think PS3 sales will be only around 35k. Also, Sony is saying. Microsoft should be worried its being outsold by PS2. Yes, but PS2 is on the end of its lifecycle and won't be streched much longer. However, Sony should be worried cause PS3 is also outsold by PS2. And PS3 is their future. Also X360 is outselling PS3... So look at ur own next-gen device before bashing Microsoft's. And then there are people who are like: PS1 & PS2 sold more then 100 milion so PS3 will too. LOL,... Think again, why didn't N64 sell as good as Snes or possibly Nes? Because its another device!... Market changes, and demand shifts!... Sony is just to egocentric to see that they are bringing emselves in a very VERY harsh position by trusting on achievements made in the past. (There's a Dutch saying: 'In het verleden behaalde resultaten bieden geen garantie voor de toekomst') In English: 'Achievents made in the past DO NOT garantuee succes for the future'. I guess this line goes very well with Sony nowadays. And also: PSP isn't doing to good either is it?! DS is whoopin its ass in Japan with a ratio of 5:1. In Europe, Nintendogs alone has sold more then 5 million copies, not the bad either, is it?! Also, DS is harvesting massive 3th party support and DS outsold PSP in Januari in America still while it wasn't available during the first half of the month. DS total sales: around 41 million. (This guy is ramping up, and still having momentum) PSP total sales: Around 22 million. (This downgraded PS2 however, is slowing down). And remember: Only bring good arguments and don't start giving someone bad names or call him a little boy when he makes one mistake in grammar. Keep it real!....

As a Nintendo Fan I must say that your post will open the gates to hell and we will be flodded with massives attack from the sony fans. I actuly think you was a bit harsch on the poor bastards. First, yes PS3 is not selling as good as it should do in Japan. Gundam might save PS3 for a short run, but I don't know if it will keep the system going for the upcoming months. (how many millions are we talking about in sales normaly? I do hope that we are talking about a million seller outherwise the PS3 is in real problem) Second, yes DS is selling a lot more than PSP but I actuly think that Sony should be able to use the 20 million sale base for making some money. Thired: PS2 will continue to sell well through 2007. So don't count out Sony yet, but they will most probarbly need to fight a upphill battle during 2007 for PS3.

Agreed - this will just invite all the fanboys to sling the same kind of crap you are trying to avoid.



Lol, im just trying to have a nice chat with the Sony fanboys. Not bashing eachother but comming up with real numbers and trying to contradict eachother! So iff they react on it in an adult way, i know it is good. Iff they still bash me or try to flame me. I still know i whooped them on real facts! Unless they contradict them, ofcourse

Well, we'll leave it to them... But i just hope they take the bait and start a decent fanboy talk (not wars)... ... And i know, it's gonna be a hard time for them to come up with numbers that speak in their advantage, but we'll let them have a try. Also, they can bring up other things that wii can talk about

oki doki. 1) PS3 cost 500-600$. 2) after 1-2 years it will cost less, probably 300-400$. 3) ps3 has blu-ray, so no need for 5 dvd for a game, and you can watch full HD moovies. 4) http://stuff.tv/news/id-4735/ - best for full HD by stuff. 5) people wait not for one game, but for many, so when FFXIII, MGS4, DMC4, HS, Lair nd etc. will be realesed, these games will incredibly boost ps3 sales. 6) ps3 and wii are in diffrent categories, so people will buy and ps3, and wii. They are not rivals. 7) many series will have continues on ps3: Tekken Virtua Fighter Soul calibur Gran Turismo Jack dexter God of war Wild arms Front Mission Metal Gear Solid Z.O.E Resident Evil Silent Hill Devil May cry Final Fantasy Kingdom Hearts Medal Of Honor Ridge Racer Tales of ...

Every 5 seconds on earth one child dies from hunger...

2009.04.30 - PS3 will OUTSELL x360 atleast by the middle of 2010. Japan+Europe > NA.


Gran Turismo 3 - 1,06 mln. in 3 weeks with around 4 mln. PS2 on the launch.
Gran Turismo 4 - 1,16 mln. with 18 mln. PS2 on the launch.

Final Fantasy X - around 2 mln. with 5 mln. PS2 on the launch.
Final Fantasy X-2 - 2.4 mln. with 12 mln. PS2 on the launch.

 

1.8 mln. PS3 today(2008.01.17) in Japan. Now(2009.04.30) 3.16 mln. PS3 were sold in Japan.
PS3 will reach 4 mln. in Japan by the end of 2009 with average weekly sales 25k.

PS3 may reach 5 mln. in Japan by the end of 2009 with average weekly sales 50k.
PS2 2001 vs PS3 2008 sales numbers =) + New games released in Japan by 2009 that passed 100k so far

Wii strategy (same strategy used by NES, SNES, Playstation, and PS2) 1) Sell more consoles in 6 months than your competition sells in a year 2) Use sale to attract exclusive 3rd party development for second year 3) Use 3rd party development to attract more gamers increasing profit 4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 5) Profit People always said the N64 was going to sell more than the Playstation later in its life because of its better hardware; it didn't happen. People always said the XBox and Gamecube would sell more than the PS2 later in their life because of their better hardwar; it didn't happen. The PS3 will (likely) hit the important $200 price point in 2010 or 2011 which will be a great opportunity for Nintendo to release a system that is (roughly) 5 to 10 times as powerful as the PS3, with an advanced Wiimote, for $200 ... Edit: CrazzyMan, many of those games you have listed have games already announced for the XBox 360 and Wii and very few are ensured to be exclusives (being that most of the games are developed by third parties)



This thread title is faulty. It's the substitution of flamming over good arguments that makes one a fanboy. Perhaps you're actually wishing to create a thread for "enthusiasts"?



I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

you want many - 50%? or all 100% of these titles? p.s. sony already has it`s eye toy, and has a patent for some stuff which could be used like wii mote. btw, M$ recently has also something like this anounced. :) p.p.s. name some titles on GC/NDS/Wii except games from square/enix, which had reached more than 1 mln. copies. only games from nintendo selling well, so 3rd parties only 50k-100k, will it be enough for them...
