The only reason it sold out the 360 is because the 360 is sold out everywhere. Atleast the Elite console is. I can't find it ANYWHERE in my area. We also have those resellers who are buying them and selling them on ebay for $600+ making the inventory of 360's even worse.

Expect the 360 to dominate the PS3 in Feb :).

PS3 only outsold Wii and Xbox 360 because they had shortages this holiday season. Xbox 360 is still dominating PS3 by about 6 million

The Xbox 360 sold I believe 12 million consoles over the holidays. The PS3 was dominating because everyone else did sell out of Wii's and Xbox 360's. (Trust me, I tried to get a 360 after Christmas, I had to get one on back order)

There will probably be more Xbox 360 sales in November 2008 with the release of GEARS OF WAR 2!!

This is because is blu ray won. Not because people like the ps3's games better. And yes once gears 2 comes out ps3 will never catch up. Im hoping microsoft will do a huge marketing campaign for gears 2 like they did with halo.

Im hoping microsoft will do a huge marketing campaign for gears 2 like they did with halo. the PS3 will never beat the 360 or Wii because they both have millions and millions of units sold so developers will make more games for those console and this will result in even more units sold leaving the PS3 far behind

The ps3 will never win overall the wii will win overall lol.
I expect the 360 to sell even more millions of units for it since gears of war is coming out even if gears comes out on Pc why play it on a pc when the 360 is designed to play gears just right lol.

360 WILL rule. Actually, it already does. Better games, better multiplayer, better community. Pwned ps3...PWNED! And the only reason wii sold a lot is because of little girls who are crap at proper games want to play something less complicated.

And the only reason wii sold a lot is because of little girls who are crap at proper games want to play something less complicated. um no.. i no i said the PS3 will never beat the 360 but... i started thinking about the fact that HD-DVD is dead now so the PS3 will most likely beat the 360 because of Blue-Ray as for the Wii which u hate cause u probably some fat guy that cant play, it will always be at the top because it's not compition for the other 2, it's completely different. so what i am saying is... in a few years from now the Wii will be first, PS3 Second and the 360 last. This coming from a guy who has a 360 and loves it

You know whats funny? Next gen everyone will hate Nintendos system because it came in first this gen. Why do people hate Sony? Microsoft is way worse.

Sony hasnt failed me yet....so im sticking with them, just like Nintendo with handhelds.:smile

I figured it would, but I hear the ps3 is not all racked up as to what people thought it'd be. I any day would still pick the Xbox 360 over the Ps3, but that's my strict opinion only. I say this as I know of both companies, and Microsoft is and always has been more technilogical when it comes to making the people happy. :wink2

Everybody who is anybody already has a 360 that's why. Nobody bought a ps3 at launch it's finally getting a few sales. Let's go with the overal sales huh?

:D

Yeah, blue-ray is ok but it won't last long. I guarantee that. Once a new Xbox 360 launches around 2010, there will be something new over blue-ray then. :wink2

What do you guys think of this idea for a college humor movie:

In a world, where PS3 cannot walk the streets without getting raped by Wii.
Where Xbox 360, even with its highest failure rate, dominates the others.

WiiS4.

It doesn't really matter. They all have attributes.

The PS3 has a better DVD player, better processor and controller layout (IMO) but it costs far too much for the common man.

The Wii is a sellout amongst little children, seeing as parents will buy their kids anything these days they've bought millions between them. Also, it's the cheapest latest console around atm.

The XBOX 360 has a novel at the back of the manual called "Troubleshooter". Its reliability is awful, and the controller leaves me confused, but I'm certain if I'd have one before this would not be a problem.

PS3 = £400
XBOX 360 = £300
and the Wii = £200

Roughly anyway. That tallies quite well with the overall sales.

Exactly. The more they cost the less they sell, naturally. And you're right, the PC is the best. No gaming system can rival the Quad Core, 8GB RAM, 1TB HD, and the sheer diversity a PC offers.
