Let me say this:

This was not baiting. This was not trolling. Was it harsh. Yeah, it was, but this was due to my frustration on the fact. People obviously skimmed it and make a comment. The people who quoted me were trolls. But, did anyone actually get the point?

The point is what I've been saying 9000 times in the span of 30minutes. There are too many "Yay Sony" topics. I swear, every week there is one. It's not that they CAN'T have then as everyone thinks it is. The point is there is an obvious glut of them. You'd think I'd make a topic for one or two post. NO. It was fine when there was one or two post. But now, everyone has made a topic on it. And that's the problem. This is a sales site. It should be obvious why they are doing well. It's no mystery of modern science. Of course, people seem to forget this.

The problem is this: There are too many of these topics, they are all the same, they are for (very) small benchmarks. It's OK Sony is doing well, but to many people felt it was an attack on Sony and trolled. It';s obvious no one thought about it. No one though "OK, maybe there are too many topics". But instead, everyone thinks "Oh it's a troll" "Oh he hates Sony".

It shows the weakness of the community. People seem to put themselves into sides rather then try to look objectivly. It's like a gang war. I'm suddenly a Nintendo guy and they are all Sony guys. The site's purpose is to look at sales. Natrually, people have a console they like best; no changing that. People just need to understand that there are no sides. My point was that there were too many of these topics when there only needs to be one or two, but people just say it as an attack on Sony(a company that you are not a part of) and nothing more.


 

It's dead... Now it is happy stupid thread time!!! Common tell us all your jokes! Any nay sayers?!?

Yeah, I don't have any joke. Least, not at the moment.

Jesus, did this topic get derailed quick.

Dude


Seriously...

Its a friggin thread



Predictions For Last Full Week of Sales in 2010)

WII - 80.35 Million

360 - 43.88 Million

PS3 - 41.40 Million

More terrible predictions coming Jan. 2011!!!

@Smashchu :

 Before writing your OP, you forgot the first rule of all fora on Internet which is : everybody has the right to write "stupid things". Nobody can say others wrote "stupid things".

NdO : i have been temporarily banned the only time in my life for that reason on another forum.

We have seen a lot of those topics you mentionned since the beginning of the year. Fact is the majority of them were "PS3 related", which is normal, given it is in third place ATM.

 People in these topics basically have spent the full year saying :

- There is no problem related to sales about PS3.

- Situation is improving (i never understood why there were so much claims that "situation is improving" if there was no problem at the beginning)

- Domination starts ... next week / month / year / decade.

I tend to agree with your position or ambition for this site (we all deserve much more), but we can't help being flooded.

OK people, it's clear to me some people on this site don't know diddily squat about sales. Why? Because for some reason, everyone thinks the PS3 isw making a come back and will win the console war.

Some obviously doesn't have their head screwed on right, and by some, I mean the idiots (sony fans or not) making these topics. It was fine at first. Yes, the sales were incresing, but there are two itty bitty factors everyone seemed to forget.

  1. The system just had a $100 price drop
  2. It's Christmas

PS3 SHOULD be goping up. It would be a surprise if sales weren't going up. But did anyone notice that every system is going up.  The PS3 has sold 2million is about a 6week time (end of Nov to now). However, the DS sells a million a week and I never saw a topic on that. But I did see a topic on PS3 geting a 2% increse.

People, these topics need to stop. Even is the PS3 was doing well without these factors, they'd still be annoying. We sure as hell don't need topic spaming. Wait untiln sometime in January before you pass judgement. It's not fair to say that a system is making a comeback when it's selling well (as is everyother system) during the Holiday season. These topics have gone to far and it's pretty much evferyone say "Good job sony" when they are still struggling behind by a lot. 


I think what your finite mind fails to grasp is the % of marketshare the ps3 is now taking in Europe relative to the 360...yes all three consoles are selling better due to the holiday; however, the ps3 has proportionately seen a huge increase (can't really be compared to the wii due to its supply constraints)... Let the Sony fans have their fun and celebrations, only time will tell. Secondly, the 360 has also seen a small price drop recently and has been bundled with 2 games equaling nearly a $100 value to the consumer. Thirdly, this is VGChartz, a forum known for discussing sales and trends on a weekly basis so get use to the weekly threads discussing a consoles sales performance...if you don't like those threads ignore them.

Well, I now only have access to a PS3 & 360...Plan on buying a wii soon (lol, if I can ever find one available!) but will probably wait until some of the major RPG's come out like Dragon Quest & Tales, etc.

Anyhow, I'm so far behind in games to play that I'm not in a huge hurry (lol, haven't even gotten a chance to finish God of War II yet!)
