Historically 360 boosts have been short lived.
So we should wait and see. America/Kinect should keep the 360 ahead of the PS3 until Sony's next price cut. Basically, no chance of PS3 outselling 360 *this generation* now in my opinion.
yeah that boost in 2008 didn't last very long.... I think it was only about 10 months.
More like four.
Look at 2008 vs 2009 similar months.
I suppose it could still be considered a boost if numbers don't rise, but are prevented from going lower?
I'll split the difference with you... 7 months
Even though the graphs based on VGC numbers basically show 4?
Even still, 7 months (4 actually) is a short boost for going to such a low price point. The PS3 has had a longer, better boost in going to $299.
PS3 boosts are bigger up to now, that's a fact. Kinect may be a different story though for thr 360.
