    if they where scared of chucky, then i could see how that made sense.

    all im sayin is being creeped out isnt the same as being sacred.

    also i know you didnt directly say it, but wetting the bed while watching a horror movie must imply that one is scared.

    lets watch what happens next. although i wont be suprised.
    I completely agree. No movies have ever scared me. My parents never let me watch Zombie movies cause they said it would make me scared but I just ended up yawning through most of it.......

    Anyways, keep trying to find something on me. You might get lucky one of these days.
    finding 25 dell laptops still on the shelf, in my book, is a pretty good indication of not being popular. i mean, that's why they discount last season's clothlines, right? cuz no one is buying them and they're still on the shelf?

    well like i said, most businesses do not put everything on the shelf. Its actually cheaper for a business to buy in larger quantities and only keep a few out on the floor at any given time. Why would a business buy so many if was not a popular product? they wouldnt. The more they buy means they know it is in high demand and usually try to stay one step ahead of the consumer.

    Now, in the case of the PS3 and wii, they dont buy them in larger quantities. I would think a product is less popular based on the number of units the store purchases.

    Does this make sense.. The ps3 is not purchased in high quantities because of this reason. It sells a lot slower because at the moment the demand for the ps3 is low. Therefore seeing few PS3s carried by a business is a bad sign compared to them buying a lot in bulk.

    At the moment the wii is CHEAP and highly marketable + accessable. This means stores will try to buy up as many as possible to sell. Its the exact same method you see ebayers use, when they camp some stores and purchase as many wiis as they can get, often 5-10 and resell them for more.

    Im just saying his logic was off and not realistic. Debate all you want though.

    Well, if they see a PS3 in a shop, they wouldn't exactly think "must be pretty popular" when they see it accompanied by 25 other PS3's

    He is trying to say if i'm not mistaken. He is trying to say that not because there are 25 ps3's in a shop. That doen't mean people will say it must be pretty popular. So from what i can gather. He is saying that not because something has a huge quantity on the shelf, doesn't mean people will say it is popular.

    But hey we could wait to hear from him. But i honestly think you misunderstood what he said. No offense taking shift
    Well, thanks for the back-up... I think. I really couldn't understand what you said...

    Well, what I meant was something like this: If you walk into a store and see a product you remember the ad for, you might think it was popular. But if you see it grouped with a lot of other ones, why would you think it's popular? I would think something is popular if it's the last one left on the shelf, not if there are many more with it.

    It sounds like I'm horny for Link...

    LoL. I often have trouble understanding potato sometimes too.

    Anyways, no one was attacking you, hotpotato might have made it sound that way, (unsuprisingly). I just wanted to clairify why that reasoning was a tad unrealistic. I am not disagreeing that the PS3 is in low demand right now, but the over all senario of seeing more in stock = less popularity is not quite correct. Its actually the other way around. But no worries.


    ADD:

    I think the best ps3 advertisement to date is this one by far.

    Yes but which one keeps your attention more? The Nintendo one is Fast, action packed and Keeps your attention pretty well.
    While the Sony one sounds like an infomercial & just keeps babbling on...... Plus the Nintendo one has been played countless times while I've never seen the PS3 one EVER.
