This pretty much is the nail in the 720's coffin.


Uh huh, of course it is, just like $600 was the final nail in the PS3s coffin right? 70 million units later....


You do know that the PS3 only managed to turn a profit by 2010(Or was it 2009? Can't remember) right? Not to mention the Economy was much better in 2006 than it is now. Barely anyone bought the PS3 back in 06. You think people are going to spend $500+ now?


It didn't matter because TO THIS DAY! The playstation 2 is STILL the best selling console of all time.
Not even the Wii has surpassed it. That spells revenue for Sony to take risks.

Would be nice to see Microsoft take a risk & follow in Sony's steps with free online gaming for people who buy their expensive console. Wouldn't that be nice? I think that'd be awfully nice. Will it happen?


DS is poised to pass it very soon.


Whoa. What? Did the PS2 get a random sales boast or something? I could have sworn that the DS passed it sometime ago.

At least it's a significantly smaller gap than it was between the Wii and the PS3/360.

I'm a bit worried that MS will spend alot of their budget for Kinect 2

is kinect 2 actually a thing, or just a brain child of this fake article in the OP?
I haven't been following MS much, so I don't know

and a $250 price tag...


Yep. And If Microsoft reduced THAT to $250 then they would be losing a hell of a lot more then what their getting.

It's not a bad thing... for kids. Since I,m nbot a kid anymore, I abandonned Nintendo quite a long time ago, seeing their games not evolving in that department. Most of my friend did too.

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.- C.S. Lewis


Cool Quote, thanks for that. Makes a lot of sense. Everyone go enjoy what you enjoy now, & stop trying to convince others what they are enjoying should not be enjoyed for any term, age, gender, sexuality, genre, or any other determining factor.

And oh yeah, <3 yourself, more today than you did yesterday, and more tomorrow than you did today.
