Some of the more astute gaming news fans out there would know the PS3 is currently sold at a loss. The technology that goes into making it so powerful wasn't cost-effective, until recently. Well, now that the the chips have gotten stronger, smaller, and cheaper, the PS3 will be a profit-making sale for Sony.

Consider how long and strong the PS2 has gone selling as many units as it has, and you can understand why the next-gen loss-leader investment was such a great deal for Sony.

Rumors of a slim PS3 are starting to resurface and this has some 360 fans considering their first PS3 purchase. But I have to ask this: Do people really make their console decisions based on how big the system is? Unless you're living in an RV, is space really that much of an issue? People will buy electronics for the stupidest reasons. Look, my laptop fits in my mouth!

Well, I would hope so. It has quite the catching up to do.

Wait! A console selling at a loss? That doesn't really happen does it?

Why oh why does it really matter what console is selling better? Each has their advantages and look/play so close that I really don't see the point of all these threads that seem to be intended to throw a match into the barrel rather than to inform the masses of significant news.

I've owned both and like them both equally to be very honest about the matter.

Agreed, it doesn't matter at all.

If you don't like a console, fine. Don't play it. I will (if I like it, which I like all of them).

I suppose if the console war is based primarily off of weekly Gamefly requests then yes, the 360 is "pwning".

:/ there are over 6 million more 360's than PS3's out there. I'm not surprised that more 360 games are being requested. Is my logic here skewed somehow?

For one Xbox 360 come out nearly a year before PS3 so more ppl will own a Xbox so it makes sense that more ppl will be buying it for 360.
But i have a very good feeling someone who has not got either console will buy a ps3 with GTA IV

Yeah, I think that's true. If someone is going to just buy a console primarily for GTA4, they will most likely buy a PS3, methinks. I mean, most people just relate GTA with Playstation, out of habit, sort of. lol

Well the PS3 has sold 10.49 million as of January 1, 2008 [2] according to nextgenwars and the 360 has sold 18 million as of February 22, 2008[1]

The 360 was released on November 22, 2005
The PS3 was released on November 11, 2006

Thats almost 1 year had. So half the figure of the 360 which comes to 9,069,990.5 (.5 accounting for everytime one fails)

Now...that would mean that the PS3 has sold 1million (or 100,000...my head hurts, its late) more units than the 360 in the same time scale.

Dont turn this into a PS3 vs 360 thread...the PS3 is already ahead

I was taking a entirely games route. That is why I put the games/requests up there. I did that because the PS3 only makes money when they sell games, otherwise they lose. The 360 is out to sell more games, thus putting it ahead of the darker console. I have nothing against the PS3, only reason I don't have one yet is money.

In other news Microsoft achieved a new US Xbox 360 attach rate of 7.5 which apparently is a record for any game console, while across the pond in Europe Xbox 360 has the highest software attach rate of any game console “with more than 7.0 games sold per console (PS3 3:8; Wii: 3.5) after 27 months on the market.”

Microsoft also reminded folks that since they cut the price of the Xbox 360 in Europe, sales have more than doubled making it the number one next-gen console in Europe, The Middle East and Africa “owning 42% of the market in terms of life-to-date revenue.” In addition “Xbox 360 accounted for $220 million of all third party game sales this generation or 49% of share” in March and four 360 games featured in the software Top ten.
