PS3 is doing fucking pathetic. I've no words for Sony. What the hell they were thinking this gen? To get beaten by the X360 you need to be pretty bad. Slash $150 from the PS3 price or they're screwed.

calm down, what were you expecting?

 

 

probably vgchartz being accurate

Every PS3 game was overtracked except KZ2. And the PS3 was massively overtracked.

 

Errr ?

All 3 PS3 titles for which numbers are given were undertracked ( Re5, MLB The Show, KZ2).



PS3-Xbox360 gap : 1.5 millions and going up in PS3 favor !

PS3-Wii gap : 20 millions and going down !

Preserving cash is probably more important market share right now...

 

Lol yeah, Sony look for profits, that's why they said PS3 will last ten years.



 

 

 

 

 

Well I don't really pay attention to NPD LOL but compared to last gen the mightly have fallen very hard. I am very happy with those MLB 09 numbers, good to see that for one quality > quantity

Halo Wars in one months outsells Killzone 2 lifetime in NA, not surprising at all though.

$100 price cut will put the PS3 within 80k of the 360, that is my prediction.

Mission accomplished indeed MS......you got 2nd place in NA.

Actually, Not bad sotware wise for ps3 - 3 games in the top 10 is good.

Horrible ps3 hardware sales were expected by me, it's WAY too expensive in this economic climate.

Even the CEO of Gamestop singled out the ps3 as needing a price cut.

So there ya go. Nuff said



Every console was down from last year

Hardware Mar-08
PlayStation 2 216K
PlayStation 3 257K

Blame Economy ......... I guess



Xbox 360 = PS2+PS3 and HW > KZ2? wow, just wow...
