PS3 surpasses 360 in sales

Flame is right on online. They use the same servers. I've seen XBL just as bad as PSN and I've seen PSN just as good as XBL.

It only comes down to optimized net code. And regarding that, fighters tend to have much worse initial net code on 360, though its usually quickly patched to be just as good as PS3. Persona 4 Arena got the worst of this, IIRC. I think BlazBlue had it, too.

So yeah, they're the same (price aside).

Considering that the ps3 came out a year later than the xbox 360 and had an arguably inferior online this is really good for Sony. You got to give them credit where credit is due.

No you don't, they grabbed a greater installbase AFTER the Wii U was introduced. This gen is long over. A hollow victory is defeat. You don't wait 7-8 years to matter more than the other guy. You're supposed to do it coming out, a convincing victory that's how it's done. Sony fell short.

Not sure why they keep talking about shipped numbers though it hasn't mattered before. Why should it matter now? In anycase too late Sony. Better luck next time.

Sony is rich and buys our exclusives like Mass Effect.

Just like Microsoft bought halo, (it was suppose to be on playstation not xbox) resident evil, metal gear solid, (the solid series) and grand theft auto.


Halo was originally for PC. Resident Evil was never exclusive. Metal Gear Solid was ported multiple times to Nintendo hardware, and on Xbox. Grand Theft Auto was on Microsoft hardwares originally.


I don't know how someone can misspell Macintosh as "PC".


PC = Windows and Mac OS.

It was for both.

Why did you stop here? It sounds like you were really close to convincing yourself that this was true.

According to this, PS3 shipments were 67.3 million as of September 2012.

PS3 had to sell 9.7 million units in 3 months.

It's best is 6.5 million.

This year it's less than that.

Buh bye.

So I take it the Wii U is just a myth? In that case the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube gen ain't over. They're still fighting.
