- Console sales are majority based on momentum for a variety of reasons.
PRICECUT+KZ2+FFXIII+GT5 = MOMENTUM.
PS3 STILL COST 400$,
- Prominent reasons include games being produced for consoles with large userbases. The PS3 having the smallest userbase ironically means it's userbase is the least likely to grow.
that is ABOVE PS2 launch price. THat is MOST expensive console on the market.
- The other most prominent reason is the "what my friend's have got" phenomenon, seen at play with the Wii, and with Xbox live on the Xbox 360.
Yeah, 25 mln. x360 owners will make big difference,
while Wii and PS3 can co-exist. Since PS3 is a HD console, while Wii is SD, but with motion controls.
- Then there is the fact that (assuming the Wii sorts its supply issues) the PS3 will ALWAYS be more expensive than the other consoles.
AFTER reaching 299$, especially 199$, it won`t matter anymore.
SEE PS2 - xbox - GC PRICE WAR. GC costed less then PS2, it still sold less.
PS3 is still getting BIG 3rd party support. =)
