       I've been reading alot of comments lately here on VGChartz things like "Wii is in trouble" and "360 is a sales beast" ect. ect., but what i have not been seeing in my reading is anything really about the PS3 except maybe that GT5 is in big trouble. This has got me sad , not the part about GT5 but part that no one is really seeing that mass potential for Sonys PS3 next year .  I believe that next year Sonys PS3 will have multiple sales explosions causing it to sell the most of any console.  Why do i believe this you ask? well if you look at current Wii vs PS3 sales Wii is only above it by 2M for this year, this time last year it was over 4M, i believe that around this time or earlier in Aug-Sep the PS3 Wii gap will be closer to only 1M for 2011, i believe that Sony will slash the price of the PS3 this time next year and the PS3 will erase that 1M gap to take the lead before the year ends. 

As for PS3 vs 360 there really hasnt been much of a threat with the 360, PS3 gots Japan on lock by alot this will continue in 2011, and the same can be said in EMEAA, as you can see by the latest numbers only 2 weeks after 360s mammoth Reach launch the gap between the two in EMEAA is only 10k this weekly gap will be gone and in PS3s favor very shortly with new PS3 skus releasing and GT5. Just look at Dead Rising 2s sales for EMEAA only 10k apart didnt 360 have exclusive DLC and has even more exclusive DLC coming? doesnt 360 have a over 2M lead in UK? doesnt 360s version run and look better?  Also look at the growth in yearly sales above, PS3 already hit way passed 12M in a year and will do the same again this year while 360s sales have been relatively flat year after year only barely breaking 11M once, also look at COD pre orders in NA same case again 360s are relatively flat while PS3 have grown significantly.  This trend will continue in 2011

As for some other reasons why i believe in this just look at PS3s SW line up its pretty much game after game month after month of PS3 exclusives. LBP2, MotorStorm3D, Killzone3D, Socom4, Twisted Metal, Yakuza 4 Infamous 2, Resistance 3, Ratchet & Clank All 4 One, ICO Shadow of Colossus Collection, The Last Guardian, Dynasty Warriors 7, Virtual Tennis 4, Star Drone and other possibilities The Agent, Star Hawk, Valkyria Chronicles 3, Sly Cooper 4, Uncharted 3 and those FF games.  I also believe that there will be a PS3 sku revision that adds extra features along with a price cut. Now you can say the same for 360Wii but there already priced at $199 and had deals of $149 and even $99 already also i dont think Wii will get a revision and the 360 already got one.

I also believe sony is like myself they like to hide and stay behind cover when battling they didnt rush to go to $299 or rush to get certain games out, there waiting for the right time when there opponent is at there weakest, i believe the 360 and Wii have used up pretty much everything in there arsenal for this console war, i believe they have run out of breath now, in 2011 PS3 will come out of cover blind firing and then charging out with its SW lineup and pricing strategy


Now post what you believe in

i believe that 2011 will be the biggest year ever for PS3.

I'm Back! - Proud owner of the best doomed handheld of all time!

I think 2011 will be weak for all consoles. XBox 360 should be comparably strong in the first half, coming off the momentum from the slim, and Wii also coming off the sleuth of games in the holdays, however neither will have much to keep them going throughout the year (I expect Kinect to be a dud and though Zelda should be big, I don't think it will be enough for Wii).

PS3 in comparison, has the regular mid-level hits that Wii lacks, but it has nothing truly big or gamechanging. It will remain in decline.

A game I'm developing with some friends:

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.

i believe the 1st and 2nd for 2011 will be close. and the 3rd not far away.

Being in 3rd place never felt so good

Even if the Wii stops selling right now, the PS3 will never match it. So the answer is no.

Well re-read the thread title then

The first sentence in your post doesn't allow you to come to the conclusion in your second sentence.

Eat less donut's dude!

All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

There are so many things to consider.. The Kinect360 vs PSMove will arguable be the biggest, imo. Either one will win, or neighter will, and things just remain the same. If sony has a price cut though, look out.

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this PS4... And this gaming PC. - The PS4 and the Gaming PC and that's all I need... And this Xbox 360. - The PS4, the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360, and that's all I need... And these PS3's. - The PS4, and these PS3's, and the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360... And this Nintendo DS. - The PS4, this Xbox 360, and the Gaming PC, and the PS3's, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The Gaming PC and PS4, and Xbox 360, and thePS3's . Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.

Obligatory dick measuring Gaming Laptop Specs: Sager NP8270-GTX: 17.3" FULL HD (1920X1080) LED Matte LC, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M, Intel Core i7-4700MQ, 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3, 750GB SATA II 3GB/s 7,200 RPM Hard Drive

it has a great lineup but these things are unpredictable. i'll wait and see.

i do expect it to have a great holiday season :)

I believe that these threads are for morale -boosting so that some people will find the strength to endure the remaining NPDs of 2010.

We are in the beginning of October , with the most important months of the year , concerning sales, yet to come ...but let's forget that and start talking about how , surprise surprise , the ps3 will rule year !!!!
