    The Real War is between Wii and X360

    in Sales Discussion on 19 July 2009

    One of the first rules of statistics is Correlation does not equate causation. If something is corellated it doesn't mean that they affect each other, it just means that they occationally moved in the same direction over a period of time...\so corellation of the sales of each console dies not mean that they affect each other in any meaningful way....

    When will PS3 weekly sales surpass XBox360?

    When it drops to $299 (and equivalent in Europe and Japan) it will always be above the 360 even if the 360 drops to $250....

    The Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta is AWESOME

    in Sony Discussion on 03 June 2009

    It truly is. I was playing from the UK last night and no lag issues or other connection issues. The graphics are the best seen yet and the action is non stop. i can see myself being seriously addicted to this once it is released.......

    How long until WiiFit outsells other popular games.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 May 2009

    The raw data on sales numbers is all good but as soon as anyone can prove WiiFit sells more software than the PS3 then it will be something significant, but since there is absolutely no chance of that happening even if it outsells it 4-1, I'm sure Sony isn't losing any sleep over it.. As a game WiiFit is a beast and will never stop selling until it is the best selling of all time, but as a...

    360 To Link With (Satellite TV Service)

    in Microsoft Discussion on 29 May 2009

    Well, it's an internet streaming service that need subscription and an internet connection to work. It should suit people that have a hard time installing a sattelite dish due to planning laws or whatever. If it's free for existing Sky customers it should be a good service for the 2nd TV since Sky already offeres their box and installation for free and their PVR for peanuts. If existing...

    PSP-Go and PS3 Slim are real, to be announced at E3

    in Sony Discussion on 28 May 2009

    They could still announce it for september and sell the old ones $30 off. That would definitely clear the shelves by then... Just like they did with the 60GB after the 40GB was relaeased at the lower price....

    Rumor: Sony Has A "Megaton Announcement" In The Works For E3 - 1UP

    in Sony Discussion on 28 May 2009

    I'm calling conditional PS2 backwards compatibility that works with modified PS2 games that are dowloadable only. And is available immediately after E3 with a new firmware update and 10 games ready to download on PSN.Of course that's pure speculation but so is this whole thread......

    hentai_11 said:Intresting thread. However I see three (fictional) scenarios how the PS3 could reach a 10 year life.1st Scenario: There will be no PS4. The PS3 will be Sonys last console. But it will last 10 years. (Maybe even longer.)2nd Scenario: There will be a PS4 with no backward-compatibility. The PS3 will still be sold to play PS3-Games with it.3rd scenario: Sony will not release a...

    I'm afraid for Xbox 360 Sales, what if Slim Ps3 comes out before slim 360?

    in Sales Discussion on 15 May 2009

    Considering the 360 with the power brick is larger than the ps3 and the 360 runs hotter i think both will probably arrive at roughly the same time but it will have a bigger impact on the ps3 which is considered more of an AV devise than a console compared to the 360....

    Why do "Hardcore" titles need to be rated "M"?

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 May 2009

    There is no such thing as all M rated ones are hardcore.Hardcore game are usually the games that a relatively highly skilled player needs time and effort to master/finish.Many games are clearly hardcore and many are clearly not. There is a very vast grey area where just as many games reside....
