PS3: The first Playstation console that fails to reach 100 Mil?

#1Dirty_DianaPosted 11/16/2012 4:33:28 AM
So in light I recent news, Sony has announce that they have sold 70 million Playstation 3 consoles. 2012 makes it almost a full 6 years since launch. The PS1 and PS2 were well over 100 million by this point.

So do you guys think its still possible that the PS3 might reach the 100 mil milestone like its competitors or is this the end of Sony's 100 mil streak?

Once is happenstance.

Twice is coincidence.

Three times is a trend.

No it will probabaly stop around 85 million shy of Reaching Nintendo Wii.

but you win some and lose some, and you move the heck on

I think that anyone who is at least somewhat intelligent doesn't give 2 s***s about numbers, because they already own a PS3

Those were all issues THEY caused for themselves. Their being broke was a direct result.

I agree the competition was much stronger this gen but most of Sony's problems were self-afflicted. Too many dumb decisions like $599 usd pushed former PS2 owners to the competition.

I really don't see how the price was a problem, since it was pretty much inline with the PS2 cost, and was very high tech for a console.

i think the price was just an excuse to bash on it, since the 360 was it's serious competition this time and you can't debate cost.
