    Low Ps3 Sales Spell Trouble for Game Makers? Some thing so...

    Soft PS3 sales spell trouble for EA, others

    Posted Jan 25th 2007 2:35PM by Blake Snow
    Filed under: Sony PlayStation 3, Business
    Who's on the PS3's side, who? Lots. Historically speaking, brand PlayStation has had the best third-party support over any other platform. That's what happens when your first two consoles sell bajillions. A higher install base means more sales of games and a better chance for game developers to make money. So given such strong support for PlayStation systems in general, it's no surprise that EA and others were/are heavy backers of the PS3 from the start.

    But according to Bank of America, soft PS3 sales not only spell trouble for Sony but for the many third-party publishers supporting the platform, namely EA. Based on recent channel checks at 50 stores, 78% had PS3s in stock. Hence, "disappointing PS3 hardware sales are an incremental negative for all the game publishers." So much, in fact, that 2007 publisher stocks could take a substantial dive this year as 21% of their total expected revenues were pinned on the PS3.

    As you can imagine, continued blame for the low demand was placed on the PS3's price point and and "lack of compelling software titles." The take-away: unless PS3 demand increases in lieu of early mishaps, publishers could also be left in the cold. Maybe more than just gamers are rooting for early price cuts now. The pressure's on.

    What do YOU think?

    the ps3 itself is flame bait. as i said i post the news. and i was referring to the other stuff ive posted on this forum, not limited to the ps3. how about this dude, you go try and find some positive stuff to say about sony, some positive articles. guess what dude? there arent any. every article that gets published is negative. that my fault? nope....sure isnt. maybe they should quit being greedy idiots. think of that?

    yah im crying i would love a tissue, could you get one? or are to busy making fun of sony
    if you look in positive places youll get positive articles, i just read a very convincing article that ps3 is on the right track on game informer, ill find you some online articles though
    okay i just googled and their all negative but your still making fun of a couple month system that hasnt even begun to show its power its like taking candy from a baby

    well all i do is look in the news man. if i find positive stuff, such as the blu ray test, i post it. EVERY article ive seen has been negative. and yes id love to see that article. cause id love to know what theyre doing right. i really would. so you find it post it here. also, any positive things you find on the ps3 make threads with them. i want to see them. you better believe if i find something negative on the wii, that isnt stupid like breaking windows with remotes and backwards compatibility which is already known, ill post that too.

    and im sorry, them making the ps3 cost 835 dollars in the UK has nothing to do with hardware. if you cant and wont admit theyre greedy, then i dont know what to tell you. i used to be very pro sony, but anyone can see they deserve nothing except what theyre getting right now, which is nothing.

    That article from Game Informer wasn't an essay of any kind.

    It was an interview with SONY's head of operations in America.

    The most positive thing he said about Sony was, "we're winners all along, without even moving one PS3, because the PS2 is so succesful."
