oh PS3 will take back europe with ease
if we align launches PS3 is around 1 million or even more ahead of xbox 360 despite launching at more than double its price
also GT 5 is a really big there.....making a decision on PS3's fate there is silly without its release
it would be like deciding the outcome of 360's sales in america without seeing what HAlo 3 could do for it..
But this is the problem Darth. Your thinking about it like it was a PS1 or a PS2, without any other consoles to compete with. The PS3 has two competitors who combined have sold 30m consoles between them. Meaning people who probably bought a PS2 have now bought either a Wii or a 360. It is not like there is this huge que of people waiting to buy a PS3.
The numbers are not what is important it is the trend. We have seen A++ games released all over the world and they have had no effect on the PS3 catching the 360. With games such as GT5 they will sell we'll but i don't think many people will be buying a PS3 here just to play it. In todays financial world price is what matters and the 360 will always be cheaper then the 360, and this is why the PS3 won't catch the 360 in Europe.
Sony have released a lot of good high profile games here recently while Microsoft have not done anything really. Nothing that is on par with say Killzone 2 etc.. But it is still selling a lot more then the PS3. In a month or two at E3 i think were see the 360 line-up for the holidays. The start of the year was the best time for the PS3 to catch the 360. That is my opinion.
