    I guess nobody wants the ps3 since its almost doubled what the 360 sold at launch I bet sony will sell 6 million by april easily.

    nope, i cant say ive heard of invintory

    Sony knows how many they sold to stores. They dont know how many the stores have sold. Nobody can keep track of what every single store in the world sells. Thats why nextgenwars is not accurate.

    I don't understand what is so hard about this.

    Sony SHIPPED a million PS3s...this does not equal sales numbers.

    This is often used in the music industry to make it appear that an album is selling well. For example, Whitney Houston's label proudly declared her last album went platinum shortly after its release, despite the fact that "going platinum" only means that a million units have been shipped to record stores. Actual album sales were dismal.

    There's really no argument here about the PS3's moderate success in the United States. Wii has SOLD millions units...PS3 has SHIPPED ONE million units.

    Understand?

    dude, this is a ps3 section, how about you get your head out of your wii and go post it at a wii section since its comparing it to the wii and is obviously showing how the ps3 "suxors" or whatever you want to say, why not 360 as well? 360 sold just as well as ps3 and wii this holiday season

    p.s. that ps3 on shelves isnt everywhere, people just arent willing to pay the price up front and its not like its America-Wide, there are no ps3s anywhere in my city so it just depends on them sony kids and where they live

    We're talking about PS3.

    Not everyone here is a Wii-fanboy. I support both Sony and Nintendo.

    To be honest, I wish the PS3 would be more successful. Success spurs competition which leads to better products (i.e. Wii).

    Not everything in this forum has to be positive.

    But check my post above for an article about low demand and high supply regarding the PS3.

    I don't agree with the Next Gen Wars sales figures. Nintendo says they'll be over 6 million by, March. Many claim Sony broke 1 million, but didn't count X-mas returns. Microsoft has not broken 10 million yet. When they do, they will announce it. Right now Next Gen wars is as close as you will come to current sales figures. I heard the real sales figures will be posted by the end of the month on websites like Gamespot.

    PS3's are sitting on the shelves of MULTIPLE game stores. This isn't limited to any particular city either. Multiple states in the US are reporting this. Something is wrong with that. 2 weeks ago I was in a game store. 3 60gb PS3's sitting on the shelf. Plain as day. BAM!! 3 seperate people asked for Wii's while I was in the store. I asked the sales guy how many hours they had been there. He said 3 days. C'mon bro. Something is really wrong with that picture. Mind you this was on a friday.......A PAY DAY!!!

    I read the whole thing, I just didn't feel like quote the whole post.

    And if you had read all of MY post, you would have seen that I want Sony (and thus, the PS3) to do well because that will mean better products for everyone.

    I own a PS1 and 2. I love those two systems. I didn't like the Gamecube...I love the Wii...I don't like PS3.

    Does everyone have to justify why they don't like a console?
