hmmm, this generation is kinda fucked, the Wii may have almost 50% market share, and yet all high profile multiplatform games only appear on the competition, so really this number means nothing if you ain't getting these 3rd party AAA games, my opinion in regards to games at least.

PS3 lost some market share, mainly because the retail chains are drying up, so many reports out in the wild that confirm this, all this points to Sony releasing a new PS3 model, and I suspect like many others that it'll be the PS3 Slim with a price of $299US....sales will be boosted, and that means the wii's market share will drop back to how it was if not lower while the PS3 market share increases back to normal and then higher, how much the boost will be sustained for is anyone's guess, but it's clear this will happen.

Well, actually...Guitar Hero, Legos, Star Wars, Rockband, Madden, FIFA, and much more tends to appear on all of them plus handhelds.  Plus, some games like MH3, DQ10 and Mario and Sonic appear to be Wii exclusives.

@khan - I can go t asus and rebrand stuff in photoshop of one of their mobos and call it the PS3 slim mobo. Until we get an official announcement, Im skeptical.

@Viper - I've had guys on ym dev team swearing they had insider info about other companies before, or had solid contacts. In the end, they were just attention whores. Sure, its possible, but until its official, I am a denier.



Bard, I agree with you about a lot of inside sources except this guy has come through on lots of stuff before and hasn't blown any smoke up our ass once. When he says X, X tends to happen.



The rEVOLution is not being televised

the Wii is going to lose marketshare like Crazzy this X-mas



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

How do you figure that?

uhm... a slim helped PS1 and PS2 in sales A LOT more than any other game did. The game may move hardware for 2 weeks or 1 month maximum, but price cut boost can last for more than a year

Again, software sells hardware.

Playstation 1 and 2 were successful only because of their powerful lineup, to begin with. A console with 0 good games worths $0.

Maybe a single sytem seller game's effect is more subtle, but it is there for many years, while the price cut is there until the counterpricecut.

 


umh, DSi pushed NDS sales, didnt it?

By innovating the experience & gameplay, offering and promising more and better software.

 

A Slim version's only selling point would be new price.

yes, and DSi and DS lite made sales even better. sorry but saying PS3 slim (if its real) wont push PS3 sales is just ridiculous

DSi may as well count as a whole different system, more powerful, better screens, ports added, btter hardware, two freaking cameras

Ps3 slim would be basically  a ps3 with Less parts.



I'd like to be like my fahter... to sire a son like myself

Its surely going to drop!
MS and Sony having a pricecut, Nintendo needs one as well!



There is no Knowledge that is not Power

I thought it would be 50% before the end of 2008.
