I couldn't help but noticed all of the PS3 nerds cheering with glee due to sales of the new slim model. These delusional fruit bats have even been claiming that PS3 will most certainly finish second this gen! Hilarious.
Let's look at this realistically. PS3 is still 8 million units behind 360. Last week PS3 sold roughly 150 000 more units worldwide than the 360.
8 000 000 divided by 150 000 is 53.3. So even at current sales rates due to the new Slim (which will not hold up btw) it would take Sony 4 and a half years (53 months) to catch up to Microsoft. Lulz. This is also assuming that MS has no more price cuts in store and assuming that Natal will not cause a spike in 360 sales.
Face it. PS3 is finishing dead last this generation. End of.
