Default Blu-ray a success because of PS3? Not so fast Blu-rayers! (NPD inside)

Nintendo DS 485,149
Wii 335,324
PlayStation 2 295,102
Xbox 360 228,225
PlayStation Portable 175,651
Game Boy Advance 135,887
PlayStation 3 127,321
GameCube 23,844
Xbox 480


Those numbers are not going to get million's of PS3's in the home! On the other hand look at Wii and 360 go WOW!

The damage doesn't stop there HALO 3 is now a September release!

March - Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
April - Guitar Hero II + exclusive songs
May - Forza 2 (exclusive)
June - Shadowrun (exclusive)
July - Mass Effect (exclusive)
August - Blue Dragon (exclusive)
September - Halo 3 (exclusive)
October - Grand Theft Auto 4
November - Project Gotham Racing 4 (exclusive)
December - Lost Odyssey (exclusive)


That's just to name a few I could go on for pages with 360's 2007 lineup!

If this keeps up the HD-DVD standalones are going to match PS3 and blu-ray standalones if HD-DVD does drop the hardware prices. One thing is for sure US is almost a lost cause for the PS3 game wise after this year!

Wii360 lead developer platforms - check
Priced for consumer market - check
Exclusive lineups - check
Superior online abilities - check.

If you got that news from IGN's article then I think you might want to read that more carefully. The release of Halo 3 is not set at all. Two different sources told IGN that Halo 3 could be released in September because its developement in on schedule. It could also release in October or November if Bungie needs more time.

What's sad is that both consoles are getting trounced by the Wii and DS. Still wondering if the novelty is going to wear out before too long. PS2 still outselling both as well. How many 360 HD DVD drives were sold?

As most of you know, I am a numbers nut, I like to take a look at the raw sales data and examine its impact on the market.

They have released the sales data for the consoles for the month of January.

Wii - 436,000

XBox 360 - 294,000

PS3 - 244,000


Wheres Haroki? Didn't he just post that the PS3 outsold the XBox360 last month?
so now that's 2 months in a row? Lol...

ps.. i know in the quote is from january...but the op of this thread...are those for feb?

The PS3 is in trouble? Wow, didn't see that coming *sarcasm off*.

And there are ZERO games coming that would justify the $600 price.

The 360 continues to sell its 200,000-230,000 consoles a month. It seems the $400 price freezes their sales at that level. If they dropped the price $100, it would be over.

The Wii continues to sell based on price and novelty. It's impossible for it to be selling on games because there simply aren't that many. But congrats to Nintendo. They basically created their own market just like they did with the Gameboy.

jesus.... and mark rein thinks the ps3 is still the system to beat. lol.. that's what i read from that other thread. so the ps3 was smacked down again by the 360 last month. and everyone was smacked down by nintendo. lol... i don't know how good of a thing it is that more ps2's are being sold then ps3's, even though they're both sony.

i'd want my new system to sell more. it would suck ass if the original xbox was selling more then the 360. same with Wii/gamecube. and all those new people buying ps2's, aren't going to be getting a ps3, for a long time. look how long it's taken them to buy a ps2.

They said the DS was a gimmick when it released. Look at that bad boy now, on top, lol. Now they say Wii is a gimmick, lets see how that goes. Doesnt look like PS3 will catch up to the 360 this year. Find it funny that they still cant sell more than a console that has been out longer. How do they expect to catch up? The more 360s sold the more game developers would rather make a game on it instead, a bigger audience with a potential to sell more copies.

What I want to here is the movie studio spin that's coming up. Are you guys ready for some serious damage control by them. "But, but, PS3 a Blu-ray player and will sale more next month." Yea I here yea studios better start to think about your options before Sony makes your bank accounts look like theirs!
