It really is surprising that Sony has actually caught up in sales... I know die hard playstation fans but I always considered the 360 as the most successful console... However if they have sold the same amoun of consoles that looks bad for th 360 since it came out a whole year earlier?
Also other than units sold I would really like to know how many units aprox. of each are still actually out there functioning, if the same numbers at sold I would assume there are more PS3's out there because of the 360s early high failure rates.
I'm an Xbox fan btw
Good for sony, but my money will always be on -and for- Microsoft.
And I wonder how many of these PS3s are used ONLY for bluray playback. Sony are still making a significant loss on their console while MS makes a modest profit on each one and has done for about 3-4 years.
Also, the number of games per console for the 360 is quite good, but the last numbers I read for the PS3 are barely more than '1'.
I'm actually going to go ahead and say that a SMALL percentage of PS3s are used only for bluray, I don't know anyone who buys or rents bluray disks first of all and the people I've heard of renting them use a bluray player. I've never known anyone to buy a ps3 just for the BD capability or retire their system to just a BD player.
I would bet my lot that that an incredibly large % of PS3 owners have never even put more than 1 BD disk into their systems ever and will most likely upgrade to a new console before they ever do, making the extra cost of the BD player a complete waste to most of Sonys customers.
Oh and.... Why is hothardwares mobile version so poorly designed?
I'm so confused as to how the Xbox 360 and PS3 trail the Wii... I guess maybe because the Wii has an appeal to a broader range of gamers compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3?
Anyone have any thoughts on this
Back in 2009 when I got my Xbox 360 as a Christmas gift I had wanted a PS3 because of its blu-ray capabilities and use as a media center... but over time it turned out the 360's Netflix integration and DVD playback more than did the job and probably surpassed the PS3 (Another confounding varibale in comparison to the Wii... with no playback without some extensive homebrew hacking and even then it's sketchy)
I also don't know what Microsoft did to manage to maintain a lead for such a long time when the PS3 had higher specs for hardware in the console... and how they managed to be beleaguered with in game glitches even with more powerful hardware (after all a ton of PS3's were used to make a supercomputer for the Air Force, and not the 360)... But I'm guessing the glitches came from Game Dev's making stuff for the 360 and then having to port it to the PS3
Questions upon questions...If anyone had any insight on this stuff it would be much appreciated!
Wow really.... i thought ps3 was dead hahaha
ps3 and xbox 360 trail the wii because the wii is one of those consoles that is shunned by gamers as a console but to alot of them can be seen used for most optimum use as a "party" console.
