It is good to see there are still numerous passionate followers fighting it out the dying days of the console sales war. All sacrifices that have been made in the battlefields have been well worth it. 


They will rise again like zombies once the PS4 and Next Xbox is out :D

step aside microsoft..



Consumers got this one wrong IMO. 360 is the far better console. Europe's undying Sony love was just too much to overcome for MS..

Geez. Can't imagine what you think about consumers and the Wii....

1) In terms of sales, the PS3 won a long, long time ago as it's relatively always outsold the 360
2) It shows a long term strategy can pay off
3)The 360 is really the "winner" here having gone from the xbox, a new contender, to an established household name and main core console of NA.

All I can say is that because this generation lasted so long, I manged to buy all the consoles (Wii, 360, PS3, PSP, DS), and I can say that it's a great time to be a gamer.

Who needs next gen, we still have a good dozen great 7th gen games coming out, and GT6 was just announed. Plus I have a good 30 console and 30 handheld games to work on now. At my rate that's at least 3 years of gaming, and I'll likely get a Wii U and 3DS in that time. When I'm bored with that, PS4 will have a remake, and on it goes.


I think because of the strength of this gen, the sales with PS4 and NextBox could turn out really slow at the beginning. I still have a big backlog of games I have to finish *and* there are still a lot of games I still want to buy. I *really* hope NextBox has bc, then I would buy it day one. Otherwise, I won't buy a nextgen-console for at least two years.

360 being bc is a big reason why I bought a 360 over a PS3 at first.

I agree with everything you said, and this is probably why Sony has decided not to make the PS4 BC. Still, lots to play, I'll never get to my PS1/PS2/DC backlog! Always got something at least

Plus the more we wait, the cheaper systems/games become. I'm really interested in the exclusives announced for Wii U (see sig), but I'm not willing to spend $60 a game, plus $350 for a system for them. So if others are like me, we will see 8th gen systems have a slow start, and Wii U is having one of the slowest so far.

PS1-backlog?! Oh my... :) To me it's not an issue with money but with time! And perhaps it's better to wait for buying nextgen-consoles too early as we have seen this gen that the initial hardware-revision may lead to a broken game-device :)

Yes, I've never owned a single first gen Microsoft or Sony product that lasted the entire generation. With 360's case, 2 years is a stretch.

Plus it's going to take 3 years or so before PS4/Infinity have a decent library of games, still it will only be decent by then. I'd rather wait longer and get the gems of 2013-2016 at a discount, but like in ever case prior for me, a Gran Turismo might make me instantly change my mind and get a PS4.

I need to replace my PS3 (mine broke years ago) and since PS4 isn't BC then I refuse to buy a PS4 until it's $200 cheaper ($200 is how much I expect to buy a PS3 for). I'm not paying extra for what I feel should have ben included in the PS4. Hopefully there is a GT6 bundle

With a gap of 86k, and selling an extra 35k a week, the reversal of positions should occur the week before E3. If that isn't perfect timing, I don't know what is.

It's a shame they're highly unlikely to mention our numbers in their E3 conference.

Someone should shoot 'em an email.

Or we could get whoever is attending from gamrReview to stand up and yell it.
