    I think everyone can agree its not really demand anymore, at least where I live (in Ontario, Canada) ps3's are sitting on the shelfs, and wii's are still very difficult to find. Not that I care really its plain and simple why wii's are selling more, its less than half the price of the ps3. I would love to own a ps3 but its just too expensive right now with the library of games not really appealing to me. I was a huge ps1 and ps2 fan (still play it regularly, guitar hero 2 is a great game ), but withholding buying a ps3.

    Maybe when there more software support I will be tempted to purchase one, but ill wait a year and see. Im pretty confident sony will pick it up and gain the same support they had for the past two systems, and I hope so because they gave me countless hours of enjoyment.

    That's the same thing people would say about the Gamecube. "I'll just wait a year and see what happens when there are more titles for it." Guess what? Most of those people ended up not buying a Gamecube, even though it had great games. Much like the poor Dreamcast. Definately a better system that the PS1. Better games, better controller, first system to have online ability, but it still didn't do well. If the initial launch fails then the system fails.

    None of the systems launch failed. In fact the ps3 and wii did better than expected and are still doing well.

    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.
    Of course Sony is going to lie about their product sales. They are ashamed of how low it actually is lol.

    The PS3 wasn't expected to do as great as it did because of all of its flaws. Pretty much only die-hard sony fans bought it and as we can see there aren't that many since just about anyone can go pick one up from your local store these days.

    Not sure how you think Sony made good choices with it

    Its sucks being proved wrong. I know it can hurt, but you shouldnt have replied. All you can say is that Sony lied about their sales?? Tell you what. Go ahead and edit your posts. I will forget all about them. Let me know if theres anything else I can do to help that self esteem of yours.

    At least you admit now that you were proved wrong and that it hurts. Never once stated that they did lie. They would lie if you asked them. Anyways why are you still here anyway?
