Lair and Heavenly Sword were supposed to be the heavy hitters for this fall, but consequently they were not all they were cracked up to be. I would rather pick up HS in the bargain bin and Lair from the sidewalk. Sony has lost this Fall unless Unchartered and Ratchet pull off some magic trick and boost PS3 sales. Wii60 is most likely to officially own 2008.
I think the price factor is the one that kills Sony, and then the games. There's no game for PS3 that makes me want to go out there and buy the console right away. To be honest, the only reason that makes me want to buy a PS3 is just to play Blue Ray movie. And yes, if the gap keeps growing, by next year, PS2 will be another Dreamcast or NeoGeo
These are international sales. The total sales should be displayed soon. Check VGchartz for very close estimate of the current sales numbers.
Sony was doomed when they fired Ken Kutaragi(Guy who made the Playstations). This afterall was their version of Miyamoto. To watch any current Sony fan bash Ken is an insult. They have no clue how much this guy put Sony on the map. I hope Ken Kutaragi decides to work for Microsoft or Nintendo to get back at Sony for treating him like crap, after all he did for that company.
