A good point was brought up with the unit shipping... how many PS3Slims can sony shove out a month? Also we already are seeing the shift in 360/PS3 sales in the US and I hesitate to call Sony's numbers anything but pent up demand for now. Alot of poeple point out the 360 sales, but as far as I can see the decent spike and then drop shows that Microsoft is more able to provide the price point that people want and they went on to sell massively the last two months. This is Microsoft's 5th holiday with the Xbox 360 and they've topped their numbers each year... I'm not saying they can do it this year, but I doubt that Sony's going to do it either. I think that the US is really going to be the deciding factor in wether Sony can hit that 30 million mark or not... I should go look at my predition I think I predicted 30million by years end for the PS3.

If you think Sony isn't going to top last year's PS3 numbers you are HIGHLY misinformed. You doubt that Sony ill do better than last year? VERY misinformed....

It's not even that he's a hater, he alos so misinformed too. How can the PS3 NOT do better than previous years?

"Sony projected to sell 13 million this financial year, which means they need to ship 34.2 million by the end of March.This means that Sony should have sold about 31 million to customors by the end of December. Sony thinks it's possible"

I feel so too, non-gravity. Not only will the price cut with the new Slim be in full effect this holiday seaseon, there is much better SW to help the momentum stay large. FF13 alone should see double HW pushed for that period in Japan.

It kinder feels true what some are saying; the PS3 Slim is the new "official" release for the PS3. We are seeing a new and stronger SONY. So, don't be so sure that SONY won't make their forcast of 13 mil (which is only 3 mil more then the previous), especially with all the bad press they had up till the Slim launch, which is something I am sure they do not want again.

I wouldn't give this ANY weight seeing as Sony as a company miss their projections year in year out whether they're doing well or not. That said, the OP makes a very good case and I think 30 Million is very possible.

This is the first time I've seen something positive posted about the PS3 doing spectacular and everyone is actually agreeing

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

well, he's not completely out of perspective. sony already had a good supply of units and it's production was steady. who knows if sony will be able to produce as much as they're hoping to sell.

i think they'll make their mark, but if there's any one thing that's going to bugger it up then i think supply might be it.

No actually I'm more moderate than most people I'm just more realistic.  I'll admit that I was extremely surprised that Sony's brand strength was still rolling that strong in Europe(but not in the US as you can see), but I'm glad they are back in the game.  Just because I don't gush over a system and overhype every thing that comes out like it's a god send doesn't mean I'm a hater... but I will admit to being a doubter... Sony pulled some really BS stuff and they have a long way to go to get back in my good graces.  I will correct people when I feel they need correcting... regardless of the system they are demeaning and on here it tends to be the 360 and Wii more than the PS3.

They couldn't do that bad if they tried... unlike their price drop Microsoft's price drop dried up sales on the PS3.  I'm pretty sure that I predicted 30 million for the PS3 by the end of the year anyway... it certainlly not out of the realm of possiblity unless Sony can't push out that many PS3s.
