I guess it won't last long though (NATAL and then 3D on the PS3 side etc.). The battle for OTHERS has only begun....

that battle it's lost dude. GT5 it's releasing next year.

Price cut, a slim model or an interesting new piece of hardware bundled with a console have higher impact than one game.

I thought it begun when the PS3 released, and the 360 had a several million unit lead? It's just now beginning because the PS3 finally took over in total units sold now?

Why is everybody taking this one sentence so serious ?

I was just trying to say that it's so close in OTHERS and anything can and will happen there.

First the 360 price cut last year and now the PS3 slim this year.

I'm just saying....why does that battle start now, and not back in 2007 when the PS3 had just launched in the territory and was several million units behind and had to play catch up? If the PS3, which launched a year later, at a staggering price and had terrible marketing at first, managed to not only close, but overcome a several million unit lead the 360 had, then it's not a battle at all. If the pace keeps up, it'll be a very one sided victory, like a 6'5" football player beating up on a 3rd grade nerd.

That like saying that when the Wii finally caught the 360 worldwide..."the battle has only begun" even though the Wii was outselling it consistently week in and week out, just like how it is in Others with the PS3 vs. 360

lol @ promoting your own thread!

 

OT: I'm super glad PS3 > 360 in others. I doubt the 360 will ever take back others now and PS3 has Japan locked up. Now for America!



Ha!

Cut down that years head start real nicely.

Sony are back people!

PS3 crosses the 30 million sold
Ps3 outtakes 360 in others

I only own a Wii so im not being a fan boy(The PS3 is my brothers) but...

The PS3 will outsell the 360 Worldwide...

Sony is a popular brand name and will outsell the 360 sometime this gen.

At the time when the 360 got it's price cut in 2008, it was constantly outselling the PS3 in Others in the following weeks/months. A new price cut, a 360 slim or maybe NATAL (if successful) could easily turn the tables again.

Without the slim, the PS3 would still be over 1m behind the 360 in Others and it would have taken another year for it to outsell the 360 there. The Wii didn't need anything to fly past the 360.



Others = PS3 now. Nothing will change it not even a 360 price cut.




A console which started behind a competitor and then managed to outsell this competitor world wide never looses again. The Xbox360 might be a good console and the Ps3 is not a PS2.Sony dominance is definetly over. But the PS3 has the higher potential. Look at the sales everything just shows clearly that the people where confused by the marketing campagne and the price was incredibly high. And the xbox had live.

now the Ps3 has a good free PSN it has good games offers graphical superior games. It has a low price. And its compared to the Xbox360 a better quality technology. Plus Bluray (its one of the best BR Players out there one giant reason is that the Ps3 has internet connection which is necessary for Bluray Live and it has regulary Firmware Updates). The PS3 is like a Jukebox for games music and movies.

The PS3 had always more potential. The decisions MS made were not always a benefit even if it seems for a short period it would be a benefit. (Redicolously high HDD prices , Fees for Online gaming which is a vital functionality this generation)

Sony would win against Xbox if the PS3 manages to sell 90% of Xbox360 units per week in NA. This would be enough. In NA MS has won already but to win against Sony WW it needs atleast europe too but this wont happen. Uk maybe an exception but continental europe is dominated by Sony.


I hope Sony wins so MS maybe change their markting model for the Xbox and it could be attractive to me.
If the Ps3 outsold the Xbox there is simply no chance for the 360 to outsell the Ps3 again.
