[QUOTE="CanYouDiglt"]All I got was boo hoo 360 had a year head start its not fair. So do you think 360 and the Wii did not have its fair share of problems or was it only the PS3?CanYouDiglt

I'm just stating a fact that MS had a year head start and that it was an advantage.... if that somehow makes me "boo hoo"ing then I guess I'll play along..

Like I asked before do you think 360 and the Wii did not have its fair share of problems or was it only the PS3? It is important because if it is even more amazing if they both had problems and outsold the PS3 considering what the PS1 and 2 did.

I feel like I already answered that question but I will again if you first go to MS website and tell me what it says, verbatim, when you put your curser over total sales for 360 in the quarterly report.

#102 Posted by FragTycoon (6430 posts) -

Please, the PS3 was supposed to have passed the 360 within months of being released, not years. That first year the 360 not only had the RROD, but it was also competing against the fictional uberPS3 that was to blow everything else away and make the 360 look like "the xbox 1.5"...etc (ie sony's hype machine), which was also supposed to be coming "Spring 2006" Before this gen the PS3 was supposed to blow away a flawlessly launched 360. Now the PS3 arguably "catching" the 360 6 years down the road AFTER the RROD issues, all the while cutting price and bleeding money while NOT forcing MS to do the same and allowing them to rake in the dough is a success? I guess if you lower expectations far enough eventually you can claim some sort of victory.Steppy_76

1. I didnt say that (passing in months) so why are you bringing that up when replying to me?

2. Why then should PS3 be "catching" 360 at all then if not for some reason?

It seems to me, and I'm sure you will correct me if I'm wrong, you are attempting to discredit Sony's ability to fight back from lunching a year behind with a more expensive console and less advertising and still be able to maintain a larger base then MS. Regardless of what your perception of victory is, those facts remain.

OMG System Wars logic at its finest.

Sony : we project that we will have shipped 77 million units by *insert date here*.

Sony Fanboy hears: we sold 77 million!

It's interesting that some people here would call this a "win" for Sony considering they lost first place this gen, along with the huge market share they had last gen with the PS2. :)

So, where does that prove that the RROD positively contributed to further 360 sales? Nowhere? Ok.

I think it did. I mean i know i'm a single case. But I had to buy 2 360s. My disc drive broke out of warranty- MS wanted 250 to fix it (Mind you this was 08ish?) Second one just bit the dust after 3-4 years.

I'm not doubting it. Common sense goes so far. I'm just asking the idiots who claim it as this huge difference, to prove it.

The only time I replaced my 360 was when I bought the Elite (and my brother got the Pro) and when my ex bought me the S model.

Good point. MS did come close to winning the casual market, thus Kinect(lol) 2.0 is a go, locked and loaded. Good job on MS's part of dropping core.

Regardless of what your perception of victory is, those facts remain.

....and you lems like to think anyone who doesnt agree with you are cows.

It was and is impossible for ANY of the consoles to generate the success that PS2 had, and probably never will. If PS2 was the gauge for this gens success then wouldnt every console have failed? Even the closest (Wii) Fell sort by over 50 million. If you remember PS1 sales topped around 100M so if PS3 sells 80-90 mil what would that be? If it outsold or will outsell the 360 its still a failure?

No, I think its clear that YOU dont have the correct perspective on this outcome. You think MS went in thinking "oh, as long as we lead in sales for most of the console life but lose to our closest competitor and be last in the end" its a win? Definitely not.

Put it into a simple equation if you ever want to see how ridiculous your rational is

MS + (70M+) + 7 years = Win

Sony + (70M+) + 6 years = Fail

I guess I could best sum it up this way...

You are using the excuse of Sony's previous success and MS's previous failure to cushion the truth that MS has not and probably will never "win" a generation.

Sorry, but I was very much aware of Sonys arrogance at the beginning of this gen. Like any business, they were definitely aiming higher.

And I did not use the PS2 as a gauge for a generations success, I used it as a gauge for Sonys success. Simply put, they lost marketshare and sold less this gen. Microsoft (and Nintendo) gained marketshare and sold more. Its pretty simple. My perspective is perfectly sound. I think Microsoft went into the gen saying we have to do much better, and they did. (ps, going by official numbers the 360 is still second, don't get ahead of yourself)
