    Supposedly, the 360 is having Hardware shortages. Oh well the PS3 DID sell more. I think its more amazing that the PS3 got so close to the Wii.

    Yeah that is pretty surprising. Looks like more and more people are willing to pay the jacked price of the PS3. Though it's not as jacked as it use to be.

    I :lol: when I heard about the "shortages." It's sad to see that they aren't making many but aren't selling many either.

    Good.
    Now Sony can give us a price drop, RIGHT?

    But that means more people doing online goodies once I get my PS3.

    TASTY.

    I helped the PS3 in the very beginnning of February by buying one. A very small work of help, but I can say that I did.

    PS3 is awesome, and it deserves to be at the top of the list.

    who really cares what outsells what, the most important factor is what YOU like the best personally.

    360 is too unreliable

    Doesn't surprise me. The PS3 is gaining momentum fast.

    stugots: The XBOX 360 may have a better library at the moment but if you look outside the box, most of said library are first person shooters and unless that's you're type of genre, the PS3 or Wii might be a better choice. I have all three consoles and the one that gets used the least is the 360. The PS3 has interesting and different exclusives such as Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. I'm not saying the XBOX 360 doesn't have great games (Mass Effect and Saints Row are just two awesome games but Mass Effect is now being released on PC and Saints Row will be released on both the 360 and PS3) but FPS seems to be dominant on the console.

    What's hurting the 360 are all the side prices. With the Wii and PS3 you get a FREE online gaming network. With the 360 it's $50 a year. With the PS3 and Wii they come with hard drives built in. With the 360 you have to pay extra for one. With the PS3 and Wii(undetermined) They did $100 price drops. The 360 does these wussy $25-$50 price drops. These scrooge methods add up.

    Microsoft needs to make the hard drive mandatory/only sell 360s with hard drives, they need to include XBL free for at least 1 full year. They could easily continue to pull in profit off their micro tranactions. If price is the reason the Wii is winning, Sony is starting to listen. Microsoft pretending to listen. That better change this year for Microsoft.

    Another quiet factor which is starting to add up. Microsoft has been letting go of their exclusives, Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Elder Scrolls, and many others to the PS3. That will harm them a lot in the long run. Meanwhile the Wii has held their exclusives with great success, Mario Galaxy, Resident Evil UC, Rayman, and many others.
