so much negativity in this thread. funny also that the negativeness are coming from known xbox360 supporters. why so much bitterness?
@ Rickz0r, given the current sales ratio of all three consoles, assumeing E3 generates the same sales boost for all three consoles, ps3 would most probably reach 40m before the xbox360 reaches 44.25m an the wii 78m. but if ms pulls it off with natal, it could be very close.
If the three consoles all get a equal boost (In %), then the Ps3 would not reach its target before the other 2 do..
The Ps3 takes the longest to reach its target at this rate.. The same goes for when all 3 get a equal boost..
Last Full-Week Sales
To Reach Target (at Current Rates):
Wii: (78,000,000-71,172,672)/165,075 = 41.35 weeks to target
PS3: (40,000,000-34,971,998)/124,088 = 40.51 weeks to target
X360: (44,250,000-39,959,881)/90,885 = 47.20 weeks to target
As you can see, the PS3 is not a clear loser. It is, in fact, the slight favourite. Also, if they all get equal boosts, it doesn't change who reaches their target first. It would just reduce the time for all of them equally (in terms of %). If they all doubled in sales, the PS3 would take 20.25 weeks, Wii 20.67 and X360 23.60 weeks. The PS3 is actually favourite at current rates.
