    I find it amazing that the DS sells like crazy but they never really lead software sales.

    But it has plenty of games usually in the top 30.

    PSP is the bigger wtf.

    The software LITERALLY doesn't sell. It had 2 of the top 30 handheld games of 2007. The others were DS and a couple GBA games.

    I still don't get the Wii. The latest Game Informer had a list of games coming out for the system this year, and every one of the damn things looked like a Disney game on a PS1. Even the zombie games looked like the Zombie would kill you then have it's eyes bulge out while making "Ah-woo-gah" noises. The Wii is just clown shoes.

    The 360 has sold three times as many systems so wouldn't it make sense that they sold more software as well? I fail to see the point.

    I have the Wii and the graphics are not as good as the 360 or Ps3 of course but they aren't bad at all...They are basically a tad better then the Gamecube was...

    So in other words, everything is still selling at or around the same pace it always has in America?

    I guess it's nice to see the 360 winning somewhere.

    That's because the Wii is meant for small children.

    Yea the 360 has 35% or so of the worldwide market while the Wii has 45% or so and the PS3 has 20%.

    Meanwhile a year ago the 360 had about 65%, the Wii had about 27% and the PS3 had about 10%.

    Hoo hoo! The PS3 is failing upwards.

    Cool, when I move to Japan and start playing gay console RPGs I'll care about what the PS3 is doing there.

    2008: The Year of 360 Fanboi Denial

    It's like you're afraid of competition, you should welcome it. With both systems going strong(er), all gamers win. Stop being a fan of a console and just be a fan of gaming.

    Sorry, but the worldwide thing doesn't work like that anymore. America is the main region for this business. Japan console sales, other than Wii, has been horrible. And Wii just started picking up steam again there.

    America decides the winner. 360 is a complete non entity in Japan, but that isn't stopping developers at all. Games like DMC4 are multiplatform because they NEED it to be on 360, in order to make any money off it, because of the state of the PS3 (which is: it's tracking behind the GameCube).

    The fact of the matter is that if PS3 sales don't go up, developers are going to start abandoning the system. The PS3 can't keep selling the way it is in America throughout 2008, or else it's done.

    And if the rumor that the 360 premium might drop to $299 in time for GTA4 ends up being true, it's officially going to be game over for the PS3.

    Does anyone else find it interesting that the PS2 is barely behind the xbox 360 in sales?

    The best part of your prediction is you can keep saying it'll eventually happen to the day it no longer matters. Just keep saying that tomorrow is the day the PS3 dies. It'll never come but it seems to make you feel better.

    Besides, after seeing how Blue Dragon sold on the 360, do you really think Japanese devs are eager to jump on the platform?

    Have a 360 now, plan on getting a PS3 this year, now that the price has dropped, and the good games are coming out.

    Don't get all the fanboy bullshit.
