Beating X360 in Others is the beginning of beating X360 worldwide. That's how Wii did it, you could do it too. Go PS3 beat that bastard X360!

But the PS3 is not the Wii.

The Ps3 doesnt have the MW2 bundle.

The Ps3 wont outsell 360 in NA anytime soon.

Unless they release Halo Reach exclusively for the PS3,and the next COD exclusively for the PS3,its practically imposible for the PS3 to beat it Worldwide before 2011

That's pretty good going considering the year and a half x360 headstart and the PS3's launchformer price.

It will never overtake x360 in NA but the EU, Japan and others combined is a much, much bigger fish.






Not really.NA is the bigger fish


OK. If you believe that.

I look at the weekly console sales in the EU, Others and Japan (combined) and come to a different conclusion.

If you believe NA > EU+Others+Japan you just keep on thinking that.

Peace.



Others>NA
but Others = UK + France+ Germany + what ever other countries

I'd say NA+ UK+ Aus>Others + JP
That's why Xbox 360 in the lead of total console sales (compare to PS3)

I think PS3 will never exceed 360 in total sales. By the time xbox360 got another price cut, the gap will return to what it used to be. or even bigger. (look at what that walmart deal has done to 360) and don't forget Natal, with the new information leaked, it's most likely going to become a big hit!!

And yet the PS3 is beating the 360. NA+UK+Aus can't > others + JP if they aren't helping the 360 beat the PS3 on WW sales.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

Not to mention since the PS3 Slim had come out in Australia the PS3 has been outselling the X360 nearly 2 to 1 there. So I wouldn't include Aus as a X360 stronghold anymore like it used to be.

I didn't realize system sellers are composed mostly of boring FPS titles.  Seriously, I'm just waiting for people to get bored watching a bobbing gun blasting away at their screen.  It's just so exciting to see the new gun I'm going to bob continuously on the screen and shoot people with.  I've played FPS since the beginning of the Genre DOOM 1-3, Hexxen, Descent, Tribes 2, Quake 1-3, Half Life 2, Those stupidly boring world war FPS.  I've basically seen everything that genre has to offer, it's sooo last gen not to be able to see the character model running.  It's not even last gen it's about last last last gen.  What's the point of character design if the character only appears in cut scenes?  Are there frame rendering issues that prevents the modern FPS from evolving to 3rd Person View? 

Dude, you sound more like a 360 fan with that post.  Not everything is about FPS, it's just that the kids nowadays are still awed by "virtually being there on the battlefield."

The PS3 will overtake the 360 in Others during December 2009.
PS3 will never overtake the 360 in NA - almost 9 million deficit in that region.
PS3 will win two out of 3 regions but will not overtake the 360 in total sales until 2013.

If the $99 Arcade bundle proves one thing- its that MS can compete with SONY on that price point..sadly for MS, SONY is at $299 so I cant EVEN imagine the IMPACT of a $199 slim... Next year I would expect a $129-149 arcade,$199 elite to UP the stakes... SONY reducing the price on the SLIM until xmas next year seems unlikely. PSPgo isnt performing as well as expected and SONY has taken a hit. Others is quite a price sensitive market( 360 killed PS3 after its 2008 price cut), so a price cut is pretty much all MS has for now. Natal non-withstanding. We'll see what GT5 and FF13 do for the PS3. I'd expect them to help shorten the gap by another 1 mil units easily.

If PS3 keeps growing YoY by double digits, and 360 shrinks or grows at 4-8%.. it wont be long before SONY and MS walk shoulder to shoulder. MS already has lost a few percentage points WW in the last few wks..

FF13?  Really?  Ok...

FF13 is gonna pull the carpet under MS and ninty in japan for a few weeks EASILY. Remember how FF7 condemned the saturn to second place in japan, before which Saturn and psone were head-to-head... And If GT5:P sales are any indication.. GT5 will be huge too..



Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

owner of : atari 2600, commodore 64, NES,gameboy,atari lynx, genesis, saturn,neogeo,DC,PS2,GC,X360, Wii

5 THINGS I'd like to see before i knock out:

a. a AAA 3D sonic title

b. a nintendo developed game that has a "M rating"

c. redesgined PS controller

d. SEGA back in the console business

e. M$ out of the OS business

well considering that ps3 sold like 5 million less than xbox with 1 year advantage and 10 million more initially worldwide it is obvious that ps3 is going to overtake it sooner or later
