    Interesting. Such low demand just 2 months after its release yet 360 was the most wanted for months later. Sony says that it's a future proof system but people are still returning it. Someone will take a fall after 07, and it's not Wii...

    Once the price drops down im sure that wont happen as much, but thats still a bummer seeing the PS3 just sit there.

    Will be quite awhile before it drops, and it would only drop a little.

    Agreed, they are already losing a lot of money per each console sold, I believe they plan to make their profits with its games which has failed, because if the consoles don't sell, why would the games do any better? I have a feeling Sony is not taking anymore risks with the PS3, so price will not drop, but if it does, it will be small.

    man i hate to see PS3 take a hit like this, but i was a person that was drawn away by the price, i really dont need a system with a dvd player, i guess thats one good reason y i settled with the wii and i wasnt to impressed with the dvd player of the PS2. I had to get rid of all of my games for PS because my PS2 started to act up and i was in a delimna to get a wii or PS3, and the wii was the choice but i wish i can still get a PS3 though

    its not only the price that sucks. 1) its the price your going to have to pay to get your whole entertainment system up to speed with the ps3 if you dont have it allready 2) no motion sensor 3) why pay 600 bucks plus 50 more to play a basketball game i can play on ps2

    I was just in BestBuy in Augusta, Georgia at 7pm at night and there were atleast 20x, 60gb pro models in a neat circular stack in the center isle just sitting there. 2ft away there was a similar display of 360's. Meanwhile the Wii section was a baren desert. I have a feeling this trend will continue for the next few months. I do believe once a hit title releases on the PS3 they will start selling again. We shall see.

    I'm surprised to see Sony starting to crash like this. But the console is too much.

    Damn man. So they sold more than the 360, ps2, and ps1 combined? Where the hell do you get this stuff? I mean come on, grow up and get your facts straight son. 360s were completely out of stock on its launch because every one sold same way with Wii. You still are clearly confused about the concept of supply and demand. Sony is supplying PS3 systems, but the demand just isn't there. Nintendo can't supply demand for what seems to be the best console of this generation and Microsoft is still selling more consoles left and right than Sony is for the PS3.

    I love my PS2, this isn't biased information. I really love my PS2 I'm playing Final Fantasy XII right now, but the PS3 really is just collecting dust in stores. Not many really want one, whether it be because it looks as if Sony may have to pull out of the console market, its overpriced, its not as good as the 360 or whatever their reason. Bottom line is that its just not as good as the other 2 systems available. Xbox was the original Video Game Computer console. Sony's PS3 is just a generic xbox360 with a little bit more horsepower for its fewer titles. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sony leave the console scene in the next 3-10 years. They might be able to recover from the PS3 though. Nintendo recovered from Virtual Boy.

    I think they got to caught up on the dvd portion of their systems instead of the real reason of the gaming system. I feel a game system is what it says and nothing else if i need a dvd player i will go out and buy one, i dont need one attached to my gaming system. Thats just my opinion. This HD-DVD and Blu-Ray war has gotten to these game makers heads and i really dont understand it when they suppose to be working towards more innovative ways of gaming

    Please find the word combined in my last post. Maybe reading wasnt your best subject?

    I said the ps3 sold more than the ps2, 360, and the ps1 at launch. Sony sold over 1 million ps3's by the 2nd week of January with a north american and japanese launch. The 360 sold 600,000 by the 2nd week of January in a worldwide launch. I guess I should get my facts straight, because if I recall, 1million is greater than 600,000. Am I right???? So i think you should get your facts straight son :lol:

    Sony ramped up production for the ps3's, thats why you can find some in stores. THis isnt launch anymore. Most people might have a hard time spending $500-$600 right after christmas. After the x-mas spending wears off, alot more ps3's will be sold. Dont forget about income tax returns and the european launch in march. PLus alot of great games are coming in March. You guys need to open your eyes and smell the coffee. Sony is doing great, and will continue to do so.

    Heres a link http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/top/ps3-launch-outsells-xbox-360-launch-226742.php IM sure most will say its not valid since it doesnt have the the word nintendo or wii in it. Heres another link
    http://www.gadgetell.com/2006/01/600000-xbox-360-units-sold-in-us/


    Also sony has not shipped over 2,000,000 million ps3's to na and japan. I guess nobody is buying them since stores keep buying them :lol: You guys are right, sony has almost doubled the 360 sales without Europe and Australia but they are doomed :lol: Seriously I cant stop laughing.
