    " Fanboyism - Leave it at the door please

    Yes i know this is a predominantely Nintendo Wii community, but we also have many members who own additional gaming consoles.

    This section is for discussion of the Playstation 3 console, and is in no way exempt from the site rules and guidelines. Meaning no trolling, flaming or thread crapping purely because you dislike the PS3 console.

    Discussion and debate is welcomed provided it is mature and as objective as possible, the fanboyism needs to be stop.

    How is that fanboyism...just reported the news. And if you don't like it TOO BAD SO SAD. Its true and I for one am not surprised. But now I can laugh at you for being so sensitive regarding some more bad news.

    Damn. Someone should have told all them people expecting there to be another Mario game not to be such fanboy's.

    I agree that the post would have been fanboyish if it were to openly say "ps3 is crap" without reason. He provided an article and said nothing that was not backed up and actively senselessly bashing at the same time.

    Personally, I think Sony fan's will have a hard time spinning this one.

    So with the ps3 sales in the UK , there was a massive spike at launch (fastest selling uk launch console) then demand dropped quickly. Well that may just have been a slow week perhaps? Or maybe just the majority who wanted one purchased one at launch.

    Simply put.

    New system comes out + lots of pre-orders = sales spike. After those 85% pre-orders are out of the way, the sales go to NORMAL mode.

    The sales didnt drop in the way that you are hoping, rather, upon launch all those pre-orders were dealt with. So, no they didnt lose 80% of their sales.

    Think of it like an opening weekend for a movie. The new movie "fanboys on ice" comes out, first weekend everyone has their tickets bought and camps outside waiting for midnight when the movie starts. That weekend the sales are high because its.. well opening weekend. Then the following week it goes to a normal pace. In the movie world, they seperate opening week profits and and then consecutive following week sales.

    The same goes for the gaming industry. Its launch week sales and then its regular sales following.

    Im not suprised you didnt understand this.

    Hardly really fanboyism, just because one is not surprised by this fall of another console simply does not make them a "fanboy". I am not really surprised by this fall either, it was simply logical. By you assuming that this is faboyism, surely this makes you a fanboy as you seem to be defending "your console".

    Calling people fanboy's really seems to just be another way to insult a user of another console. Maybe you should leave your insults at the door.

    The recent fall of the rate in PS3 sales is logical because, everyone who really wanted one got there's at launch as there were plenty in stock. Time will tell however this could be a setback to reality for Sony.

    I don't think it's the fact that he didn't understand it, I think it's more of a case of the scale at which it is displayed.

    Considering some were crying out for "the best launch ever", this is one hell of a downer...

    Err, not really what I meant, but I am looking forward to Paper Mario. Though haven't found a reasonably price copy of the Gamecube Paper Mario.

    But once the launch is over, did they expect the sales to stay the same? Im not sure thats precisely the case. It did have a strong launch, PS3 is beating the xbox360 in terms of initial early month sales.

    I think the only system that has the same demand as its launch is the Wii, but then thats also a combination of price and the fact that many buy the system just to resell it for twice the price. Check out ebay and you will see people have wiis in the bulkloads, one person buys maybe 4-10 wiis in one outing, then sells them all over north america to stupid people who are buy them for a lot more.

    What would be funny, is if we found out that the wii is being bought by terrorist because the systems include a chip they can use for bombs or missles. I believe that happened with one of the other consoles in the past where Iran.. iraq.. cant remember, was buying a ton of video game consoles because one of the chips could be used for their missles. Funny stuff.
