    Ah screw it, cant stay out of here with so much nonsense.

Sure there are ps3's on shelves. Its a $500-$600 system. Whos gonna spend that much right after x-mas? Income tax returns are coming, and were finally getting some good games in late feb-march. Sony has one decent game out right now, which doesnt give a big incentive to buy a ps3. March is going to be a very big month for Sony.



    Since hd dvd was optional, that is what is going to kill it. What incentive to people have to buy it? How many has microsoft sold? I believe it was less than 200,000 units. I will try and find the link. Theres almost 2 million blu ray plays on the market right now. Common sense tells you what?????

    1. Do you actually think the profits from Television sales go to the playstation department or something? lol
    Just because companies do good in one spot doesnt mean it makes up for the spots going bad. They just kill it.

    2. Who cares about the players? thats not going to benifit the Ps3. When you can buy players for less then the Ps3, and most people will buy anything to do with bluray for movies. I doubt the Ps3 is going to get any boost in sales from a victory in the format war.

    3. March is also a big month for the Wii... So dont think they are going to take the industry by storm or something lol.

    4. Why do you think Europe will want the Ps3 anymore then here? its going to be MORE over there then it is already here. And Bluray probably wont even leave a dent for a few years over in Europe. Im sure if you took the sales of the Wii or Xbox360(not sure bout xbox) in the countries they are currently released in they would have much more consoles sold then the Ps3.

    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.
    So what makes it different than the ps3? Its high priced and still sold more.


    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.
    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.


    Exactly. 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.
    Of course dvd is top dog. I never said it wasnt


    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.
    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.

    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.

    Quite 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.
    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 country


    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).
    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.


    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.
    I belong to lots of forums. Im quite happy here thanks. Im starting to see a pattern with you.

    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.

    1. Do you actually think the profits from Television sales go to the playstation department or something? lol
    Just because companies do good in one spot doesnt mean it makes up for the spots going bad. They just kill it.
    They need to make a profit as a whole. While they are losing money on the ps3, they are making alot of money on the tv's. This will balance it out so they can continue to sell it. THink of it like this. Lets say they lose $250 per console. Sony is estimating in selling 6 million consoles before summer. Thats 1.5 billion dollars lost just for the ps3. They better be making that money up somewhere else. Tv's would be a great start.

    2. Who cares about the players? thats not going to benifit the Ps3. When you can buy players for less then the Ps3, and most people will buy anything to do with bluray for movies. I doubt the Ps3 is going to get any boost in sales from a victory in the format war.
    When blu ray wins the format war, it will just be another incentive to buy the ps3. Get a blu ray player included with an awesome console.

    3. March is also a big month for the Wii... So dont think they are going to take the industry by storm or something lol.
    I never said anything about the wii. I said sony will do very well in March. Lots of great games and they are releasing it to the rest of the world.

    4. Why do you think Europe will want the Ps3 anymore then here? its going to be MORE over there then it is already here. And Bluray probably wont even leave a dent for a few years over in Europe. Im sure if you took the sales of the Wii or Xbox360(not sure bout xbox) in the countries they are currently released in they would have much more consoles sold then the Ps3.
    Europe is a very big market share. The ps2 sold extremely well there. The wii will outsell the ps3 in every country for a long time. I dont understand why you keep bringing it up though????? Sounds like your obsessed too. My point is the ps3 will sell good in Europe. If you dont believe me, just wait until March and see for yourself.

    5 wiis is stockpiled? You just love to throw out exaggerated words dont you? If they were still selling for alot on ebay I would have bought all 5. I felt it wasnt worth my time after paying out ebay and paypal fees for the little amount of money left over.

    [QUOTE=Wii&Ps3]So what makes it different than the ps3? Its high priced and still sold more.
    It's different because the market is different (other consoles actually being quite successful so far this time around - especially with the amount of choice now available in the market). Also, the functionality is different (DVD was already fairly established when the PS2 was launched, and the fact that you didn't have to buy a new HDTV to actually notice the difference in graphics). The PS2 and PS3 are very different. One cannot be used to illustrate why the other will be on top. It's the equivolent of saying that The Wii will fail because the Gamecube did (sales wise anyway), which is also not true.

    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.
    Ye, well for a start, we already know that figures can be wrong, and secondly, they can be skewed to fit any arguement.

    Of course dvd is top dog. I never said it wasnt
    That was to illustrate why I went with the example of DVD instead of VHS. Not meant as a "I've proved you wrong".

    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.
    1st, DVD isn't a Sony owned format. 2nd, Shown by whom, and in what way 'best'? 3rd, if the 'best' blu ray players are not selling well this close it it's release, isn't there something wrong?

    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.
    Well, Sony tout it as an etnertainment centre. It comes from a line of gaming machines. It is a gaming platform. To say otherwise is like calling mobile phones "mp3 players with messaging services". I don't think people on here think that it's backwards. In fact I would go as far as to say that many people realise that it's a gaming machine with blu ray tacked on, to try and penetrate the market, getting blu ray into homes. Whilst it is a blu ray player, it's the gaming segment that sells to the fanbase.

    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.
    Nope. You've got that completely muddled up. I was saying that the comparison you made was flawed because you were saying the HD DVD add on for the 360 has sold 200,000 compared to Blu Ray (rather than PS3) 2,000,000 on the market.
    a. units sold is not the same as units shipped.
    b. comparing a single unit for HD DVD against the entire line of Blu Ray isn't a fair comparison.

    Why do you need to talk about the Wii? You do realise this is Wiichat don't you? You're in the PS3 section of Wiichat. Also, I know this isn't a communist country. It's not a country at all, if you haven't noticed. It's the internet. It gives you a voice being on here, but it sure as hell doesn't give you the right.

    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.
    Then why ARE you here? It's certainly not to mingle with people with a connection. You're here to troll, and if you don't stop, I'll report you for doing that. Funnily enough I am a fan of the Wii (not obsessed), which is a good thing when I come here to post on Wiichat. If you don't like the Wii, then fair enough. But then why do you post here if it isn't to troll? What consturctive reason have you for coming here?


    I belong to lots of forums. Im quite happy here thanks. Im starting to see a pattern with you.
    Do you not have anything in common with the people on there either? If you're so happy posting on other forums, then go post on them. It'll be better for everyone.

    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.
    Obsessing? If I have a chat with somebody, it doesn't mean I'm obsessed with them. What I'm obsessing about is why you're here in the first place. You don't seem to fit in with the community, and I don't see what you could possibly get out of it. The only thing I see is a load of trolling and flamebaiting, which is not allowed in many forums (including this one).


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    I would say 5 would be considered a stockpile at this point considering 99.9% of stores (excluding the one in your area, of course) sell out of the thing moments after they're on sale.

    Why would you buy the system if you weren't looking forward to any games?

    Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Smash Brothers does nothing for you?

    By the way, way to skip over Flanders post about HD DVD. Decided to ignore those facts, eh?

    Hmm, freezes? *looks at brother who is currently playing my Wii, then looks at Wii*, still working here, and mine only froze once, and I think it was when I was trying to grab a blue coin in Super Mario Sunshine and had to do an unsuccessful wall jump, still haven't gotten the blue coin, but the console still works fine, and as for the internet connection, the problem isn't with the Wii, the problem is in the routers, ever heard of wireless channels? Guess not, I bet you don't even know what an IP is, an ISP is, or the difference between IP and ISP, so there is not any big problem with the Wii, just with the peopole who don't know how to properly set them up

    And, assuming that you have a Wii (and if you don't, STFU), it could be that you F**ked it up doing something with it you shouldn't
