But to answer your question, it's my opinion, obviously. I've owned all 3 consoles at one point. The Wii collects dust, the 360 I sold for fear of RRoD, and the PS3 I use literally every day.
I know the Falcon is supposed to help with the failure rate on the Xbox360. When is it coming though? I don't know.

Secondly, you're right, I am a fanboy. A fanboy of superior technology. It's not my fault it happens to be the PS3.

Don't shoot the messenger. I just post the news when I see it, I didn't start any flame war.
2 months in a row eh? the 360 outsold the PS3 many many more months. I guess i should post it as news every time it happens? (no seriously, WHY is this news.)

So they shouldn't have lowered the price? What? The price got lower because Cell and Blu-Ray got a LOT cheaper to manufacture. The 360 was as cheap as it was because Microsoft obviously cut a significant number of corners in its manufacturing/designing process. The outcome was the RRoD and DVD-scratching (to a much lesser extent but more so than any problems the Wii/PS3 had) fiascoes.

No one said that. Thank you. Are you saying the man can't "like" superior technology?

Someone didn't read the thread! Who cares about month-to-month sales numbers? In its first year, more PS3s were sold than Xbox 360s in its own first year. Their timelines overlap; they do not start at the same time. The impressive part about these past couple months is that the PS3 actually outsold the 360 for the first time. For a console that came late in the game and costs $100-$200 more, that is a significant feat. Don't you worry; the PS3 outselling the 360 on a month-to-month basis will become old news if/when it becomes status quo.

The title is a true statement.
obviously its worded in a way thats meant to imply it's better. If you deny that you need to be looked at.


[No one said that...]
again, its implied.

What stats are you looking at? I'm not saying they're false i just cant seem to find any that support that. (the yearly sales.)

and again, like has been said, I would willing to bet a significant number of those buying a PS3 already have a 360. the fact that it is just starting to outsell is not impressive, nor should it be considered news.

Still lagging in game sales though, but it's still early in the year. IMO, when they FINALLY release HOME and new games in the later half of this year that games sales list will tilt to Sony.

ahh ps2 is darn excellent value these days and there are still decent games coming out from it.

no doubt the blu-ray victory has boosted sales for PS3. And this will be its best finanicial year to date with all of its exclusives being released and new bundles too.

The PS3 has been selling more than the 360 for a while now, and I mean, More than the 360 had at th same point in its life.

eg. PS3's launch and 360's launch, etc Only reason 360 is winning now, is because it appears they are winning as they have had an extra year of sales.

And don't go calling me a Fanboy, I'm always at the local gaming place playing GHIII on the 360 with a 19" HD, instead of the PS3 on the 52".

Yes, it is news. If it wasn't there wouldnt be tons of news stories about it on the internet. Just check Google news. That happens to be where I get virtually all of the news stories I post. If you don't like the news, don't click the link. There...problem solved.
