wait wait wait.... the general public is clueless of the slim but eagerly anticipating the elite cut?

LOL....I know what will really send your whistle flying...I've been debating all week if I should get a PS3 on friday...2 days from now...


Do it.

The general public are aware, if not, the marketing will make them.

However, ODST and a $50 price tag will last them this year, but unless they take some drastic measures next year such as a Slim $200 system, they can kiss their marget gains goodbye.

Have you seen the 2010 lineup? They'll be fine.

bomb or not it aint a 360 exclusive that way... isn't that the point?

It was never a 360 exclusive.


to the 360 fans it is... unless gears of war isnt one either...

No-one mentioned it being a 360 exclusive. Only one person used the wor exclusive and that was in reference to the MICROSOFT exclusive deal. No-one ignored the PC version but then you jumped in with your it's not a 360 comment. Why?
That's not the point. The point was whether it's comming to the PS3, what exclusive deal does MS have but you had to try to stir it up by bringing up fanboy nonsense about 360 exclusivity, then you had to attack 360 fans by telling everyone what they think (you being an expert) and get a dig in with GoW. Isn't you telling everyone how 360 fans think how this got started?
Naturally whenever you do this it's always negative to 360 fans. Says a lot.

wow. I think I know what type of person you are now.

so it doesn't matter if the game sells well and makes it worth the developers time and effort if the 360 loses an exclusive?  Do you need more bragging rights for your ps3 to justify your purchase or something?

Seems others can see it in you as well

Though I suspect it'll fly right over your head.

When the general public enter the store, they will see a $299

... they will also see $179



 

Evan Wells (Uncharted 2): I think the differences that you see between any two games has much more to do with the developer than whether it’s on the Xbox or PS3.

The PS3 will outsell the 360 in Xmas. That's a fact.

No it is not. XMAS is in 4 months. How can it be a fact ?

"A fact is a pragmatic truth, a statement that can, at least in theory, be checked and confirmed. Facts are often contrasted with opinions and beliefs, statements which are held to be true, but are not amenable to pragmatic confirmation."

Here is how its going to go down...
From the day the Slim drops and on, as long as there is adequate advertising, it will outsell the 360 worldwide in every territory.
In all honesty wether you want to admit it or not, there is no real reason why I shouldn't, with the exclusion of the week that Halo ODST drops, but even that may not help the 360...
All in all we will see in time, but the most likely and rational scenario is that the PS3 will steadily outsell the 360 by a fair margin from this point on, at lest until Natal launches, but the success of Natal is yet to really be seen.

I can pretty much guarentee PS3 wont outsell 360 in the USA the next few months so, next theory?

 

Even NPD stated they expect slim to raise PS3 sales 40-60%, which would still leave them slightly behind 360. Not factoring in the yet to be released MS holiday game bundles, ODST,  or the impact of 249 clearance pro's while they last.

 

Going forward I think PS3 has shot it's software wad, after Killzone 2 there's not been a title with as much hype. GT5, GoW3, and UC2 (which most mainstream dont care about UC2) are all they have left. KZ2 was definitely the zenith of PS3 software hype and it seems all downhill from there.

It sure wasn't the zenith in sales figures for that game...

Lord - Please, go educate yourself. If that was FUD don't you think starcraft later in the thread would have said something about it instead of agreeing with me. Stop being so petty. And besides, A. that's a Sony forum. B. that ain't FUD. C. I already put those quotes in my post history. And you say you can have a HS diploma in the US... that's yet to be seen.
