PS3 only shipped 70 million.

This years sales were slightly above 2008, in the first 3 quarters of 2009, PS3 sales were at an all time low. Its on the way out. Fast.

The only way PS3 is reaching 100 million is if its sold for the next six years. It will be shipping end of run PS2 numbers within 18 - 24 months.

Saying that, no-one will make a huge distinction between 94 million and 100 milllon.


You do realise that the PS3 is still expensive, right? On top of that, it didn't have any big release this year. As for 70M shipped, the number of sold systems was at 70.2M as of the 4th of Nov 2012.

Next time, before you post, think harder.


Nopes, 70.2M was shipped.

Next time, before you post, think harder.

It will be interesting to see if the wii stays in first place for this gen as the next few years go by. From what I have heard it has not been selling to well at all compared to the other two recently, so sony might take the lead in the next few years and be in first place again


You know how pathetic that sounds. Sony has to wait until both MS and Nintendo to move on to become number 1 for gen 7. Everyone who has enough sense would have already moved on by then. The PS1 and PS2 didn't even need a full 10 years to get the job done. They didn't even need 5 years. Hell the DS is not even 10 years old and it already matching the PS2 in total sales. Like I keep saying only insecure fanboys give a crap about this. The fact is Sony screwed up. It's better to hope that Sony return to form with the PS4.



I usually completely agree with your posts (especially on FINAL FANTASY) whenever I see them, but this time I'm sorry but I will have to disagree.

1) Both PS3 and XBOX360 have the (very likely) chance to 1up Wii. The fact that Nintendo withdrew because they were had huge decline in sales, doesn't give them a free pass.
In a Martial Arts fight, you don't win if you are ahead of your opponent in a 5-0 score.
You either KO him (see Dreamcast), or play until end.
If you win by 5-0 points, and you leave the match, you lose.
If PS3 and XBOX360 surpasses Wii (say in 2015), then Wii is last in this gen.

If you can't forecast the future and are forced to withdraw because of poor sales after a few years when your "opponents" keep rising, you deserve to lose your place, if it happens. No excuses.

Like SONY was dedicated to eat it up for years straight just to stay in the game, Nintendo will have too.
And for SONY, that exactly was the plan since day 1. An actual, 10 year full cycle. No, not a PS1/PS2 10 year cycle. A full 10 year cycle. (see upcoming games for proof). So everything goes according to plan for them.

Also, don't forget the price difference not only between PS3 and Wii/360, but also between PS3 and PS1/PS2 at this point in their life. Imagine the sales PS3 would get if it went 99$, or at 150$ with FINAL FANTASY Versus XIII bundle.


Imo, both PS3 and 360 will outsell Wii, with PS3 reaching a huge install base of 110 (or even 120 if SONY makes the price PS1/PS2 level) million consoles.
Especially after PS4 launch, and PS3 price drop.

And again imo, SONY will have made a tremendous win this gen, Nintendo will have deserved their last place because of their short term vision, and Microsoft will have missed an opportunity. If it happens.

2) DS has nothing to do with this.

You do realise that the PS3 is still expensive, right?

And the 360 is a year older and on average more expensive, still doesn't change the fact that PS3 sales this year are down, not the worst they've ever been, but they're getting there. I'd expect NPD to post a couple of near 100k numbers in 2013.

On top of that, it didn't have any big release this year.

I don't think anything announced for the PS3 will stem the curb. Yes, lack of releases was a big problem for the PS3 this year, which is why it's declining, it would have been easier to prevent it rather than turn it back.

Bear in mind, PS2 sold 4 million last year and they pulled the plug. in 2013 you'd be looking at maybe 8-9 million PS3's, then next gen hits it'll be down to 4-5 million the following year...and Sony makes less profit on PS3's than PS2's.
