I never said anything about the console sales. Just the fact that he thinks it is over looked.

Who is exactly over looking it? THe companies that are pretty much in Microsoft's pockets?

So multi platform games start out on the 360? big deal. They are still great games. Instead of looking at review scores because it got HALF a less point how about you just enjoy them like I do and play the game.

Your mentally already hating the game because it got 9 instead of a 9.5.

Honestly you guys need to just accept it. or how about you stop playing your PS3 for 3months and go get a Wii and enjoy the VAST AWESOMENESS that 3rd parties put on Wii haha. Then when you return to the PS3 you will NOT think the same. a multi platform game with a score 0.5 less out of 10 that the 360 will be great to you.

Just stop.

Look at Bayonetta on ps3 one month ago. Your argument is so flawed and you are trivializing a VERY "big deal".

I'm still trying to understand the problem.  This isn't 2007.  The PS3 not only has a ton of exclusives that Sony negotiated or bought the devs outright, but it also gets a huge number of multiplatform titles that are available on the 360.  And, with the rare exception (Bayonetta and ...), they are usually identical and have been for the last couple of years.

So basically when we hear PS3 fans complaining about not having games on their console or not having every single multiplatform game be equal or superior, it sounds like the rich kid complaining that his mom bought him a black Porsche instead of a red one ...

The only reason you still lack enlightenment is because you think this is the only reason, but even in your justification there are flaws. Bayonetta, half life 2, fallout 3. Those are 2 GOTYs and a AAA game doing very very poorly on the ps3. You say, it's like a matter of car color, but I'm sorry, it really really really isn't.

Continuing on my point, it's not just about what console is the lead platform or which looks ever slightly better. It's about the number of games that come to the system, it's about selling as many as possible so that costs go down which trickles down to the customer in a price drop. It's about more income for exclusive developers to make more AAA quality games that we enjoy. Every ps3 fan should care about how many ps3s are sold, and so should every other console owning gamer.



Sony shipped 33.5 million ps3 at the end of Dec. 09, and the ps3 is at 31.65 right now. So almost 2 million ps3 available. I think its funny that my brother went to 15 stores and all the stores were sold out of ps3 so my brother just ordered one off of amazon.

there could be a very good reason why those two facts could co-exist.

 



Well I must say, I can't really follow anymore =p.

Like demand exceeding actual manufactured products ?

Anyway it seems that the shortage will last for a while http://www.joystiq.com/2010/02/12/sony-ps3-supply-to-be-tight-over-coming-months/ , but hey Sony could always use some of those 3 million PS3 sitting on the shelves to suplly NA stores.

could be a lot of reasons. It could be that some retailers have a huge amount of stock. It could be a revision with new hardware. It could be a price drop coming up. It could be a stockpiling to deal with the next 2 months of huge game releases. It could be that sony is counting units sold to the airforce or other institution. It really can be anything.



Interesting things are happening. Looks like vg is struggling to make sense of it.

Its a big big world, Sony is very popular all over many impossible to track locations.



This is demotivating. PS2 was closing in on 60 million in Others and I was really anticipating it. Now it is down to 55. :(

The shortages may only be in NA and I'll just wait for sony numbers at the end of March.  I'm sure sony counts the ps3 sold to the airforce and other institutions but thats probably 100,000 units max.
