Anyone really thought that the PS3 would end up not being Number 1?

Yes, but xbox just sold 700,000 units over the weekend and Sony only sold 376,478 units over the week. It's neck and neck at this point, but even if Sony overtakes the xbox 360 -- Will anyone ever really acknowledge that they won this gen?


Xbox was released almost 2 years ahead of PS3 so yeah PS3 won


Won what? Second?
lol. You guys are ridiculous. I'm sure Bill Gates is sitting on his stacks of money laughing at the people saying 360 ''lost''.

lol.

But seriously, look at how much the PS2 sold vs the Xbox, and then the 360 vs the PS3.

PS3 did well to regain ground and get it's reputation back in check, but the true accomplishment this gen is Microsoft's 360 and to a lesser extent, the shock sales of the Wii.

Seriously, had MS not stumbled on exclusives and got more of a suite of developers going, the end result would've been substantially different. Look at the facts: They took a flatout failure of a console (minus Halo), and turned it into a dominant player in a single generation, despite the bad taste that Xbox would've left in people's mouths.

The only thing that matches that is Sony's gaming debut in which they really showed the industry what gamers want. The PS2 hit the ground running and the PS3 was like a ferrari with a broken starter motor.

I personally believed that Sony were going to smash this gen to pieces with the inclusion of blu-ray and the potential it has, and instead they've just managed to match sales with a console with f*** all first party exclusives, a high initial failure rate and the successor to an overpriced console with a gigantic controller

What really hurt Sony was the price and loss of exclusive third party for Sony. If Sony was able to launch the PS3 at a $400 price point as well as third party exclusives or earlier release they would've still came in 2nd. This gen was won by Nintendo capturing the casual audience.

I find it cute that you actually think Nintendo is in the same league as Sony and Microsoft... It's like comparing sales of Pepsi and Coke to RC Cola -- sure it's there, it's on the market, you can buy it... but the real competition is between Coke and Pepsi.
