Forums - Sony Discussion - So simple for sony to win that its pathetic...

Lolz haha this post is hilarious. What makes you think your smarter than some of the economists at SONY. Some fanboys are complete morons



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!!

You might want to go back to square 1 and examine your own assumptions.

1. Can a machine as expensive to produce as the PS3 compete price-wise with a machine as inexpensive to produce as the Wii in a broad-audience scenario? Remember, a large percentage of consumers are very price sensitive.

2. Can the PS3 continue to remain price-competitive with standalone Blu-ray players as they begin to rapidly drop in price? For Walmart shoppers there already exists a $160 solution. This means the PS3 can no longer count on being the cheapest Blu-ray player for those primarily interested in watching HD movies.

3. How far into the next generation can we get before it becomes impossible for an underdog, regardless how determined or talented, to still win that generation even though most customers have already made a decision and purchased at least 1 next gen system?

I would buy 4.

 

id buy 5.

I'd leave it at 1... I only need 1 pizza at once.

 

 

You can never have too much pizza.

If all you ate was pizza, couldn't you die?

 



OK I didnt think I would have to explain this cause I thought it would be obvious but I guess not...

Sony prooved with the ps2 that u can take SIGNIFICANT hits in price in the first half of the life of a system knowing that on the back half u will earn quite a bit not only off the system "cause the tech gets cheaper over time therefore cheaper to build year after year" but with a huge increase on accessories "wich have the highest % of profit from store bought merch" not to mention the fact that games will increase in sells and somewhat unique obviously to this gen is the dl's straight from the source "wich are quite profitable too" AND having your name in the house more will cause a person to buy your other products if u show them how nice 1 can be.

So to get back on point the FACT is that there are ten's of millions of people worldwide "especially Asia" who own a ps2 who have not bought a ps3 or any next gen for that fact cause there system is still being published for. Now if you stop support of the ps2 "like MS did for xbox" it will force people to go out and buy another system. Now when they get to the store they see that sony is now in the same ball park for the price comparison with Wii and 360 and it also comes with the cable u need to make it look good on your new high def tv and a good game. Then u read on the box that all your old ps2 and ps1 games will work on this new system and u can also watch high def movies and get on the internet and etc... and GEE look at them fly out of the store, imagine that. This is honestly simple. Not only has sony prooven my point with the ps2 but microsoft proved it with the xbox/360. This truly is not a hard thing to grasp.

BTW just incase u are one of the shit talkers earlier I have taken Micro Eco, Stat Eco, World Eco, Eco 101, 201, 303. I love the subject and I do know a little bit about what Iam talking about here. Grant-it Iam obviously not as qualified as the sony eco's however how good have they been doing so far? hmmmmm

END OF GENERATION PREDICTIONS  "9-21-08"

PS3=130M     360=90M     Wii=120M     DS=130M     PSP=70M

Other Prediction: The PS3 will overtake the 360 XMAS of 09  "9-21-08"

 

Sometimes I really wonder whether or not certain people are real or are just accounts set up for the sole purpose of making Sony fans look bad.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Sony only had one unprofitable fiscal year during the PS2 era. Constrast that with two unprofitable fiscal years due to the PS3, well on their way to the third.

When you think about a $100 price cut and look at the tie ratios for most consoles, it becomes obvious that price cuts aren't always a good idea. A $100 price cut means having to sell 5-10 more games per console owner in order to break a profit from that person.

How do you propose Sony "stops" game publishing on the PS2?  Is Sony going to tell third parties they're not allowed to make PS2 games anymore?  I'm sure that'll go over well...

As for selling the system at a price closer to the other two, if you really think Sony has just dismissed this idea for the hell of it, you're crazy.  I know technology gets cheaper as you make more units, but Sony obviously knows that too.  What makes you think they haven't already calculated the cost and reward of another price drop (based on quality internal data versus the internet speculation that we all use?)

You think the BC is far more important than it actually is.  For the most part all these peoples' old PS2s will still work fine so that is a non-issue.  The internet is nice, but they probably all have computers, and when you include the high-def cable as a selling point you're really grasping at straws.

Don't get me wrong, those thigns are all nice to have, but in the end what sells a console are the games, so along with reducing the manufacturing costs, that's where Sony should focus.
