You just predicited a 140 million unit life time sales for PS3. That is not a sane prediction.


Can be less and IMO can also be well more, depending on unknown factors neither you nor I have any real influence on. IMO nothing to become upset about, my prediction (actually "expectation" would be the better word here) stands.

Some reasons (amongst many others):
- Little room to drop the 360 entry pricing below 119 Euro or 199 Dollar. I think the PS3 will drop more regarding entry pricing the upcoming years.
- The most anticipated PS3 games are still under development, all well sold XBox games already saw 360 sequels and there's nothing really major or spectacular on the radar.
- The PS3 is very well specced for a long term future, the 360 will not see major technical gains from here on, unless Microsoft decides to screw arcade customers and allow for future games to require a harddrive.

Agree with them or not, it doesn't matter enough to get upset.



Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."

PS3 vs 360 sales

Indeed dividing his numbers by two also yields a much more sensible prediction of 7-12.5 million PS3s sold during this year.

It wont break 9 digits. quote me on that. Of course there is no need, because just about everyone would agree with me. Like quoting me for saying the earth will be round in 2012.



 

 

It will be FUN to OWN every PS3 HATER here, when PS3 will get a BIG momentum in next 12-18 months. =))

Because only in next 12-18 months PS3 finally is getting FFXIII, GT5, KZ2 and 299$ price. =]



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

People always seem to bash the PS3 for its poor sales in its first two years,but seem to forget that the Xbox 360 only sold 15 million in the same time frame.The PS3's total sales for its first three years will be more than the Xbox 360 sales for its first three years,guaranteed.

 

I still predict the PS3 to sell between 60-85 million by end of the year 2012.Keeping with Sony's ten year plan it could easily pass the 100 million mark by 2016.



End of 2016 prediction

PS4:43M-46M

XBONE:28M-33M

I'd think it would have a possibility of hitting 80 million if the price drops down to $199 by then...I expect the ps3's sales to go up big time once it hits $299, and then to skyrocket once it hits $199. And it should be $199 by 2011 I'm sure giving it huge sales that year.

Japan should come alive once Final Fantasy hits it...hopefully late this year with a price cut and bundle.

And when it doesn't happen, will you finally shut up?  I doubt it.

It will be fun to watch this prediction fall apart like your expectations that the PS3 would sell as well in 2008 as the PS2 sold in 2001 ...

He'll be busy hyping up GT6, the TEN-YEAR-PLAN, GTA5 and FFXIV.
