Forums - Sales Discussion - PS3 surpassing total sells of XBOX360

Well said disolitude!

Anyway, if you ppl like it more:

Let's say 100.000 more weekly PS3 sold, to close the gap:

 7.060.000 / 100.000 = 70.6 Weeks

 70.6 x 7 = 494.2 Days

 494.2 / 365 = 1.353972603 Years

It will take 1 year and 3 months! Ahhhh.... Wait! What's going to happen in 1/2 years?

 Ah! I remember now! 360 Will be blowing 4/5 candles and a new console it's just around the corner!

 Now what SONY?  What's going to happen to your 10 years lifecicle?

Hello;

Here is something for you guys to think:

TODAY:

360 - 16.820.000

PS3 - 9.760.000

 Gap = 7.060.000

PS3 now (I don't know tomorrow) sells, let's say, 45.000 more weekly consoles:

 Japan - 30.000

Other - 15.000

TO CLOSE THE GAP IT TAKES:

 7.060.000 / 45.000 = 156.8888889 Weeks

 156.8888889 x 7 = 1098.222222 Days

 1098.222222 / 365 = 3.008828005 Years

 

So it will take PS3 3 years to close the gap

 

 


The assumption that the percentage increase is stable is wrong. For instance during XMas the gap might increase to 100K per week and when big titles are launched there will be big spikes.



it was gonna happen

For your first post, you are rather brave.

 lol thats what i was thinking



everybody's acting like PS3 will have a bunch of great games and price drops to help boost PS3 sales while the 360 will have nothing for the rest of its lifespan. Keep in mind, if and when PS3 sales DO boost, you can bet MS will make sure 360 keeps up with it with price drops of their own, more AAA titles, etc. To claim that PS3 will pass 360 by 2009 is having a little too much faith that PS3 sales will skyrocket if you ask me. Not only do I not believe that PS3 won't pass 360 in 2009, I doubt that it'll EVER reach 360's sales. It'll narrow the gap, yes, but 360 will keep chugging along and will keep it ahead of PS3 by a couple million when it's all said and done.

@ metallicube
don't worry its cool...once more good PS3 games come out, posts like this wont be discussed much as PS3 owners will have something to play as well.



disolitude stop trolling. Just because you don't like PS3 games doesn't give you the right to say no one else does.

@ OP

It all comes down to Europe, if MS can manage some drastics price cuts and bring the momentum back up then maybe the 360 can manage its lead for the rest of the generation.. If anything we will have a clearer picture at the end of this year.

Before I smack you around with 1,000,000 reasons why your analysis is pointless and stupid, how old are you? If your older than 11 then I will proceed to tear you apart (no homo). If your younger than 11, good work doing all that research and putting together an argument that would be valid if every month of the year was January.


i think you need too calm down

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

 I don't think price drops are going to do it, most 360s are still cheaper than the PS3 by quite a bit (in UK Premium is £50 less than 40GB)
