So what makes it different than the ps3? Its high priced and still sold more.Don't go slugging sales figures about the PS2 around. I've heard many an arguement of people giving PS2 as examples of a high priced machine at first, or a machine that didn't do so well until a few years in.
2 million shipped and about 1.3-1.5 sold last time I checked. Thats not alot? Theres alot less hd dvd players on the market (add on and standalone combined) I saw a link before but I cant find it. I will look for it.Yes, but the whole point of the PS3 (from a buisness sense) was to help infiltrate the market with Blu ray. The standalone players have been touted as being expensive, and the PS3 a cheaper alternative, but since there's not that many PS3's sold, Blu ray sale are being effected.
Of course dvd is top dog. I never said it wasntExactly. There's no real compulsion to buy HD if there's still so much SD stuff available. Oh, and to be fair, I haven't seen many VHS tapes being sold recently. As far as 'market penetration' is concerned, DVD is top dog at the moment.
ps3 has been shown to be the best blu ray player on the market. The ps2 could have never said that about playing dvd's.HD DVD is optional, meaning that people don't HAVE to buy it when they wish to get an 360. How many people have bought PS3s strictly for the Blu ray movies? People who don't game, aren't going to buy a machine designed for gaming, with a little add on that they want. Oh, and common sense tells me that those figures you're touting are flawed for one reason:
You're comparing Units sold (200,000) to Units on the market (2,000,000). Also, It'd be interesting to see actual HD DVD units sold (rather than simply the 360 add on) and also, how many of those 2 million Plu Ray players are PS3's.
Its funny you say its a machine designed for gaming with a blu ray add-on. Most people here think thats backwards. I think it does both very well.
The ps3 has sold more than 200,000 units. I think thats what you were talking about. Maybe im wrong? The ps3 has sold about 1.3-1.5 million. Maybe more now. http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/08/l...ss-conference/ is an interesting read.
Why do I need to talk about the wii? Do people make you talk about certain things? Im in the ps3 section so I talk about the ps3. This isnt a communist countryQuite frankly, no. You don't talk about the Wii in the regular sections. Lack of good games? There's a lot of people here talk about upcoming games, online systems, heck even in the lounge is people talking about random stuff. You're not. You don't seem to be able to connect with this community because you are only interested in touting 'facts' to 'prove' people on here 'wrong'. Hence, you do not seem to fit in with the community, and would therefore probably be better off somewhere else.
Im not looking forward to any games. Maybe sadness, but I have no idea whats its about. I dont understand why I need to talk good things about the wii. It seems to be your obsession.I'm gald you do like the Wii, how about showing it a little more, like saying which games you're looking forward to and such. This is the PS3 section for the community to talk about the PS3 (you don't seem to be part of that community).
I belong to lots of forums. Im quite happy here thanks. Im starting to see a pattern with you.Sure, harsh words were said on both sides, but since your posts seem to be against the community as a whole (i.e. bashing everyone else who doesn't agree with you, whilst not contributing at all to the community), I just feel like your energies are being wasted here and that you'd have more in common on a different forum.
By the way, if you were threatening and swearing (at least if I saw you), I'd report you.
Here is some suggestions. Stop obsessing with me. Its kind of weird, and not in a good way. Im in the ps3 forum so I will talk about the ps3. If I have anything to say about the wii, I will go in the appropriate forum.
