X-Box 360 to lose the Console War in Europe?

X-Box 360 to lose the Console War in Europe? 50°
357w ago - A recent report on Next-Gen is suggesting that the Xbox 360 will likely be the "biggest loser" in the continent of Europe. The article states that although more European gamers are moving to have more than one console in their homes, the two consoles are likely to be the Nintendo Wii and the PlayStation 3.

Sony has a history of dominating in Europe with their PS2 basically owning the continent for its lifespan. But the botched launch of the PS3 sent speculation flying that the Xbox 360 may knock Sony off its high crown in Europe. Now reports from analysts are suggesting that the loyal PS2 consumers may remain loyal to Sony's brand and buy the PS3. Make up your minds, analysts.

One thing that I'm sure bugs Europeans is how they are all grouped into one category. Europe is a diverse place in terms of culture and gaming preferences. For example, in England the Xbox 360 is the dominant console. Englishmen are like Americans in their love for violence and specifically First Person Shooters.

I'm sure everyone can agree that the Xbox 360 is the superior platform for FPS's and it shows in the U.K. sales. The European continent, however, is less into shooters. This is the area that Sony is doing well in right now. So it may turn out that Sony wins continental Europe while Microsoft...

The year of the PS3?

The year of the PS3? 50°
359w ago - Is the era of the X-Box over already, almost before it began? Premature ejaculation of fanboy glee, a beautiful moment but over in a flash, with nothing but a mess and disappointed people left in its wake?

A little look at what the experts say on the subject certainly tells us so. An article on Joystiq's PS3 Fanboy gives 10 reasons why the PS3 is back in the swing of things.

EGM and EDGE have both within the last four months run cover stories on the return of the PS3 – titled "The Empire Strikes Back" and "The Revenge of the PS3″ (which if nothing else, tells us that The Force Unleashed is going to have good sales) and some analysts have predicted that the PS3 will do at least as well as the 360 this year, and some have gone so far as to say that it's going to edge out the unstoppable Wii by 2011.

In terms of general PR too the PS3 has been doing great, with the Human Genome Project and then the USAF taking a cartload of PS3s definitely counting towards publicity. Without even considering the Wii then, in terms of general publicity, the image of the PS3 has never been better, while MS is has to deal with issues like the RRoD, which just looks plain silly. And lets not forget the other issues with the hardware too, from misaligned drives to lens issues.

If that doesn't...

What the heck is going on with the console war?

What the heck is going on with the console war? 100°
359w ago - What's the deal with Microsoft losing the entire first quarter of 2008's hardware sales to the PS3 and Wii while not really seeming to give care? Is it all show (the not caring part) or what?

Maybe I should start taking bets for what Microsoft's "official" reason will be this time. They've already used up "underestimated demand" and "production capacity issues". My money's going on "Who cares about March anyway?! March is a stupid doo-doo month!"

In anticipation of Thursday's official release of the NPD sales numbers, analysts are predicting that Sony outdid Microsoft for March. I'm not sure about you, but I was getting used to seeing Xbox 360 sales as the metric people really watched, while Wii sales were a never-ending fluke we expected to crash at any moment and the PS3 was the little system that (never) could.

When the PS3 outsold the 360 the first time, we all agreed... it was a fluke. Then it happened again, but that was okay since it was sort of a mistake on Microsoft's part combined with another fluke success on Sony's part. Now, we're approaching official confirmation of the third time (in a row no less,) suggesting this is edging toward an actual "trend" with the monthly order of hardware sales repeatedly coming in Wii>PS3>360. Maybe someone...
