I like StarcraftManiac's, thread about the DS so here's so I started a series, When do you think the PS3 will lose momentum? Please post only about the given system. Thank You
Mayby in europe but other than that they are in free fall...
in JAPAN ps3 is outselling x360 10:1
actually it is like 20:1 since the ps3 costs 550 and x360 cost 250 there.
in Europe the ps3 is earning an extra 100$ due to the omission of EE chip + srinking of the CELL chip (a 60$ savings there no doubt).
so if you look at total revenues then ps3 is outselling everyone.
In USA too MOTORSTORM has given HW sales a significant boost. Of course the big guns are yet to come
Ive invested in a PS3 and im happy i did. Call me a fanboy but i wouldnt say Sony is in a free fall. and Mridul id be considered a sony fanboy but youre insane with your manipulation based on chips and cell costs, absolutely insane.
But anyway, I think based on current sales and the Euro launch, if it sells close to 1 million in the next week or so I find it hard to see hwo we can say Sonys PS3 is in a freefall. Sure, people arent eating them up like the Wii, its important to note that 600 is not an impulse buy (not saying Wii is) but its harder for people to drop 600 on anything than 400 or 250......so you can call it spin, but if we look back to the 360 launch and we see that the ps3 is selling better worldwide than the 360 i think that truly cant be ignored, especially since the PS3 has direct competition with the wii and 360. It just cant be ignored.
In our "have it now" society we dont like looking at long term situations, but as long as the PS3 can simply sell mediocre and create a larger install base of BD to help its multi marketability, i think the PS3 can be fine.........just my opinion, but i remember gettingmy 360 on launch day and having it sit until oblivion came out and being pissed that there was nothing to do with my 360.....its eerily similar comparing PS3 to 360 to dat, except the PS3 is selling more even with competition....and while i wait for games as i did with my 360 i can watch BD movies which i couldnt do, all in all i think the best remedy is to just take info and discuss it rather than post about the outcomes of a launch in progress and think in terms of weeks when thsi kind of debate needs to take place over many many months.
