I must say that was a great touch. Did you do that on purpose ?

It was the producer's suggestion. They needed a real PSN ID.

And, for the record they are NOT arguing. We would never imply that the woman is disappointed the guy bought a PS3. In fact she's excited that they can download movies straight to the console.

:D

hey tiny are you guys takeing any flack for the poor sales of LBP...?Ironic that LBP is literally a HIT AND MISS game. It is a great game that should be flying off shelves. Instead it gets game of the year and is sitting on shelves. How does that happen?

LBP is a pretty niche game; but it still should have sold better than 350k in 2 months. Motherfucking Mk vs DC for the PS3 sold better than LBP in November. Resistance 2 had disappointing sales; Motorstorm 2 and Valkyria Chronicles bombed. The existing PS3 install base is not going out and buying these titles. I don't really know how to explain it, a system with a hardcore install base such as the PS3 should be having better software sales. Even the Wii has a better attach rate.

It really doesn't have a market for anyone Its to simplistic for hardcore gamers and to confusing for the casual gamer the game has no niche with anyone.

I would'nt say Valkyria Chronicles bombed thats more of sega fault for not advertising the game at all, That and the fact that they sent very few copies to the US I almost had to order my copy online the game might become like valkyrie profile US a rare collectors item.

I think some people ONLY play sports games, and others ONLY shooters, and some a combo of both. I was at Best Buy the other day, and a guy was getting a PS3. The guy selling it to him suggested CoD WaW, and he got all defensive and actually in a pissed off tone said "I only want to play sports games online w/ friends." Meanwhile I'm sitting here thinking about how much goodness he has IMMEDIATELY cut himself out of, including LBP.

Some people don't play "kiddie" games. They are missing out on LBP and Ratchet and Clank if you ask me.

Because video game consumers are fucking assholes. Anytime a developer creates a new IP that is lauded with critical praise it just dies out on store shelves (see: Beyond Good and Evil, Okami, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, fuck-it-there-are-too-many-to-list). Bioshock is, like, the one notable exception, and if it hadn't been an FPS it wouldn't have sold, either.

Americans looooooooove their precious sequels to death, though. Way too much to take a chance on original titles. It's a damn shame.

The only sports game that would be in the Top 10 list of 360 games for 2008 would be Burnout Paradise... IMO

What exactly are you winning? It's obviously not sales; you've seen the numbers across the globe, I'm sure.

The only thing that saved Xbox this holiday was the price drop to $199.

Purchase intent was trending toward PS3 in September, October, then the week the $199 hit, it shifted to Xbox. So, they pay people to buy their console. Sure you got a head start, but PS3 is the superior hardware and the games are better. 1st party titles: head-to-head, in 2008 and (in 2009) PS3 pwns.

You could argue that PS3 exclusives are better in terms of quality; but certainly not in sales. There has been loads of fantastic games on PS3 and none of them (except MGS4) really sell. If Little Big Planet, Singstar, Super Stardust, Uncharted, Warhawk, Wipeout HD, Valkyria Chronicles, Ratchet & Clank and MGS4 aren't enough reason to go get a PS3 (and they apparently aren't), games aren't going to fundamentally change things; it's too late in the generation for that.

Gears & Halo are known quantities to the average consumer. KZ, Uncharted and LBP might eventually become that, but for now they are unknown outside of a small % of the game-playing audience. PS3 still doesn't have a killer app in terms of broad consumer awareness.

As for "paying people to buy a console," Sony does the same exact thing. Thanks to Blu-Ray and the Cell; Sony loses enough money on the PS3 without cutting the prices to Xbox levels.

You forgot MotorStorm 2, Resistance, BUZZ QuizTV,

duly noted. Xbox does have a severe fanboy base. But really, in terms of those games and game play, are they really the best thing out there? Can you not argue the third party games are better? (Fallout 3, COD4) PS3 has some immensely awesome titles (I am surprised Heavenly Sword didn't do gangbusters, as it's a great game) but a lot of the SW numbers are hampered by the HW sales base. PS has an install base much lower than XB.

Level two is a pain in the fucking ass to beat. That level killed the game for me. Arrows that have to be guided.

I have played some insanely tough levels but that one was pointless and a waste of time. Didn't matter how many times I tried. I would miss every time. Just wasn't worth the frustration when I have other games I would rather be playing.

Now the main character fighting was fun as hell. A lot like God of War. If they would have just eliminated the sub character with arrows I would probably own the game.

It is done, Sony lost this round of the console wars to MS.. If they are smart they keep kicking out games and advertising and swing momentum their way for the PS4 vs. xbox9000..

You cannot tout superior hardware and then fail with software sales and claim superiority.. Especially when you did the exact opposite the previous battle..

PS3 needs to get on par or actually better then LIVE if it wants to beat MS.. Preferably still free, but I doubt that will happen, they will just add a price to it, even though some real competition from Sony would maybe force live to go free..

Sony hurt themselves by making a machine that was too hard to develop for. The problem with Sony is they want rule the world. heh

Personally, I think the PS3 is the better system overall but Xbox has it beat with its software. and that is really the only stat that matters. Xbox is cheaper to develop for so PS3 just gets ports instead of games developed specifically for the cell. That is what sucks.

Call of Duty developed for the cell would be sweet.
