Market analysts predict that the PlayStation 3 win the video game console war by 2011.
Keep in mind that this prediction is from Market analysts research, and they've been wrong before.Researchers at the Yankee Group predict that the Sony PS3 will grab 44 percent marketshare of the cumulative consoles sales in North America by 2011, with Xbox 360 on 40 percent and Nintendo Wii lagging behind with the Wii at 16 percent.
The research represents sales of 30, 26 and 11 million units respectively.
However the researchers also claim that fewer consoles will be sold in this generation due to high prices. The Yankee Group also expects to see Microsoft continually undercut the price of PlayStation 3 throughout the Xbox 360's lifetime.
With only a four percent lead, it looks like Sony's advantage is likely to be lost over the next generation. After all, what's the point of winning this generation's war by 2011 when we'll be moving onto new consoles by then.
What do you think? Will the PS3 be the real next-gen console to beat Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii?
Why do ppl always underestimate the Big N. Clearly when the PSP came out eveyone was like, "PSP rules. DS sux.", but now those same ppl are watching their precious PSP go so far underwater that Sony is planning on making another one already.
Hey wallstreet guys heres my prediction: Nintendo wins, M-soft is close behind, and PS3 won't even start selling until 2011.
