What do u classify as it's normal sales... do u mean what the PS3 was selling bfore the price cut, cause that was not normal!

Before the 360 had it's price cuts last year the PS3 was constantly outselling it, at a higher price tag, too. Now they are more even, expect the PS3 to go back to outselling it constantly again.

Respect to SONY-san.

the postion it was in was 90% down to price... nothing else...

there was no media anti sony conspiracy, there was no hate, there was no image problem... only common sense purchase decisions by consumers

there is nothing miraculous about an increase in sales due to a price cut.

True, there's nothing miraculous about it.

However, I don't think many were predicting the effect of the price cut/new model to be as strong as it's been. So, while not miraculous, sales, at least as far as most vgcharters are concerned, have been pretty terrific.

I'd like to know how Sony feel right now about the figures.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

If PS3 will be able to sustain 250k+ sales for the rest of year, or atleast not fall below 200k, then YES.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (sept 29) - AAA
Demons Soul (oct 6) - AAA
Afrika (oct 6)
Uncharted 2: Amoung thieves (oct 13) - AAA
Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time (oct 27) - AAA
Tekken 6 (oct) - multi
Eye Pet (nov 17)
Modern Warfare 2 (nov 10) - multi
Assasins Creed 2 (nov 17) - multi
Gof of War Collection (dec) - AAA
FFXIII in Japan (dec 17) - AAA

So, the hardest thing to do, is stay above 250k the 4th week, but even if it will sell less, it`s not big deal, as long as it will sell 250k+ with incoming releases.

isn't GOW releasing in Nov?



^the PS3 is performing "Hanzo The Razor's Special Interrogation Technique" on the competition in Japan... lol.

@darth....

now you are being silly... the 360 price cut created a massive turnaround... it created a 3 million swing over the xmas period.



I'm not really here!

Considering that PS3 > 360 for the year now after only 3 weeks, the swing this year could possibly be even bigger than that in PS3's favour.



a comeback signifies a win
theystill behind
Maybe you can call this a bog bump in sales



Sure ps3 is selling fine now. it´s not like it´s selling ds or ps2 numbers either but to my opinion it is NOT the biggest comeback ever. Taking into acount that WII WAS THE BIGGEST COMEBACK EVER since everybody counted them off. and even thought that nintendo was going to drop out of the hardware race. Wii sold more than double of what its predecesor did. Ps3 will not sell more than ps2. so just think about that.

If Wii normal sales = 300k

then PS3 normal sales = 150k
