To put it in perspective, Sony's PS3 sold 70+ million consoles yet lost $6.5 billion dollars while the NGC sold like 24 million and still made a profit...


Where did you pull your numbers from ?

I know the PS3 lost a lot at the beginning ( but I don't think it was that much) but now they are making money the last few years.

And it's a miracle the PS3 even did so well with an over exspensive cosnole, nearly impossible to develop for early on, no games on launch and yet it has come back and is leading last time I checked overall.

So just imagine the PS4:

Cheaper then Xbone
More powerful then Xbone
Supposedly even easier to develop for then Xbone ( because Xbox has Esram)


So to me and the average person, Sony should be able to dominate MS easily and it would take a miracle for MS to beat Sony without a very early price drop and a lot better deal or overall package.


I'd suggest not replying it Desperate, he'll pick and choose a few things in your argument and twist the meaning to his own...

Last? Its in first last time I checked.


*cough* Wii *cough*


I don't think anyone seriously counts Nintendo as part of the console war. It's sort of like in a world to itself.


Well, it was a console. Sold at the same time as both the 360 and PS3. It also competed for sales with the other two consoles. Since the Wii sold more units than the PS3 and 360, that's a win bub.

I had a Wii for all of two days before I got bored and sold it and can see this.



No it didn't compete with sales, it was marketed To a different group and provided a different experience while for the most part having completely different games.

True, Sony and Microsoft were aiming at the 18-34 market while Nintendo was going for toddlers all the way to grandparents, that kind of marketing really put me off actually, do I really wanna play something that's for 5 year olds and 80 years olds? Nope, not really....

The Wii came and went like a fart in the wind ALL Playstation consoles are still used and popular now that's a win bub no different is gonna be with the PS4 the Wii U haven't even came and that's why the consoles Nintendo makes is irrelevant
