As has also been pointed out, the 360 was supply constrained during much of that time. In its first year, PS3s were gathering dust on shelves.
Keep that spin machine going.
Here's a mathematical fact: The PS3 doesn't need to reach parity with the 360 in sales, it needs to generate more sales in order to make up for the existing gap in units
Here's a fact: The PS3 doesn't need
to reach anything. It simply needs to remain a viable platform that developers are willing to create titles for. At 9,000,000+ units sold, I don't think anybody except you and like-minded "fanbois" (your word, not mine) expect Sony to have any problems keeping the PS3 alive and well.
This "wait and see" attitude that PS3 cheerleaders like to spout can only last so long.
Who's waiting anymore? There are plenty of excellent games available for the PS3, both exclusive and multi-platform. All of the major developers are on board and committed to the platform. Do you bother to look at upcoming releases? Many would argue that the PS3 2008 lineup looks a hell of a lot more promising than the 360's.
No need for you to feel threatened. Enjoy your 360. Just accept the fact that millions of us are just as equally enjoying our PS3s. Let's talk again this time next year and see whose perspective was more on the money.This comment was edited on Jan 26, 13:01.
