Now that the "format war" is over, anyone looking for a BD player would be foolish not to get a PS3, IMHO. This news shouldn't be that surprising and Sony are looking quite smug now after banking on BD and PS3.
I bet Nintendo are laughing a whole lot louder though making money on every machine sold from day 1
Have you got a link for this mate? Not doubting you, just interested in the read
Hopefully this will lead to multi-platform games being developed with the ps3 as the lead platform, there have been a couple of games that have, but on the whole the ps3 is still the home of slightly inferior ports.
It's quite funny how after the launch sony was getting a right hammering about poor sales etc, but now they must be laughing their heads off.
The Wii is still the only console to be selling at its launch price, the DS is also selling better than the PSP and that doesn't even take into account Wii Fit.Nope, sony are making a shed load on PS2 consoles and still selling more PS2's than Wii's and have sold over 125million consoles world wide, so Sony are laughing harder
Because the PS3 had no development costs? I'd have thought the Wii was easier to develop than a PS3. The Wii is a Game Cube with a tilt sensitive remote. Blu-ray...Also, Nintendo weren't making money from day one. Yes, they sold the console for more than it cost to make (unlike PS3) but you have to remember that development costs were obvisouly millions of pounds in the first place
Once you get past the irritating hyperbole of M$ and $ony who often seem like school kids arguing over who's Dad is better, it's certainly looking like M$ are on the wane, and that $ony's Dad's new Golf and could beat M$'s Dad's Fiesta. Sure, it's a Fiesta sport with ABS and a good stereo - but it's still a Fiesta.
For me, i bought the ps3 primarily as a blu-ray player. I suppose in reality i was hoping that the ps3 would be an 'upgrade' in gaming experience from my (getting slightly stale) 360.
as it turns out, I feel the ps3 is an obvious down grade as a gaming platform atm.
Happy with the blu-ray playback though.
wondering how many of these extra sales were in the same position as me, a fair few i'd say at a guess.
Snap. I have not actually played a game on mine yet (owend it for 3 months) but it upscales SD DVDs and plays BR Discs wonderfully!Every one I know that has a PS3 uses it mainly for a Blu-Ray player, then a games machine if at all.
Bit premature to start talking any dominance as a gaming console until game sales start to exceed the other console alternatives as a norm... .
far too many people will make use of the PS3 only for BD/DVD .
