I never knew, Sufi. It's been so close these days, I never bothered to look to be certain. Judging from your reply, it looks like the news I saw was always about YoY WW.

No doubt..PS3 is the best video game,just got the bf3
How do we know what's going to happen next? Which is why I'm talking about track-record.
It just happens so that the quality went down as the disaster news came from Japan...a lot of companies are struggling right now. That may not be the entire reason but a big part of it I'm sure.
Again, you forgot to quote the part where I mentioned that one American company...getting an accolade for once in 24 years doesn't mean a thing, it's an outlier.
That's why track-record matters. If all companies started to show this then I would agree...if you look at all the other electronics, Japan still rules.
Cameras, TVs, and I can name a bunch more but don't have time. I'm sure everyone already knows the list.
Still not as bad as when some people refer to a singular woman as "women".
That annoys the hell out of me, the most annoying though is when people mix up you're and your. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Ford is a quality company, and it should not be lobbed in with the rest of the American carmakers.
It's a fact that America borrows a lot of business concepts on how to keep improving things from Japan.
It is a fact that Japanese electronics are the most popular around the world. Not to mention, they are the largest exporter of these electronics...for obvious reasons.
You can't tell me that a few things broke on you and for that reason we should negate the big elephant in the room.

I have nothing important to add but I need 5 posts before I can make a topic to ask me question so: rightfully so, I have an xbox and was always a 360 fan until the ps3, it's way better, free online and better system.

You'll have trouble finding one that doesn't use American processors. Everything from LED HDTVs to cell phones to tablet PCs to laptops to desktops all use American processors. For instance, most flat panel HDTVs produced today use either Trident Microsystems or Zoran Corp chips, both American. Intel, AMD, and IBM are all American. Nvidia is also American. JEDEC who controls DDR RAM is American, as is RAMBUS who makes XDR.
Japan does a good job of assembling electronics, but most of the parts they use come from America.
That the PS3 can still sell well despite those odds shows something excellent. The industry is now diverse and consumers can see what the PS3 (and indeed the other consoles have to offer). That without doubt has been this generations trademark. Usually the case was that one console failed miserably (sales-wise) in the previous generations but in this generation all seem to have had strong sales. That is healthy for the industry.
Plus Sony is investing heavily in emerging markets where the PS3 will eventually be offered for sale and/or offered for sale at vastly reduced prices.
is there really any need to sound like a member of Sony's PR team? "such a dynamic machine"?
its a console that does much the same as its main rival, but with a better catelogue of games.Got YLOD? In the UK? I'll buy it off you.

Ghost has passion
It is a dynamic machine, whatever "Sony PR" or fanboy name you wish to pin on me. When the PS4 comes out PS3 will sell on just like PS2 did and will offer people a cheaper machine to watch movies, play games, surf the net and stream a whole host of movies and music from the net and from their PCs via the PS3 media center app.

PS3 does indeed have a browser, but holy $#@! does it suck donkey balls. I wish the rumors of Chrome coming to the PS3 would have come true.
I dont know why you guys see the PS3 as selling long term, maybe if they can get the costs down to the point where they can turn a profit.
But if the PS4 was announced tomorrow, you can bet the PS3 would be phased out faster then you can say "lets make some money for a change".
Thats may change in the future, but the PS3's life cyle is really going to depend on 3 things:
What the oppositon brings out in terms of starting price/performance on the next gen.
If they are making money on the PS3 or not. (Currently not).
If they gear their next console to make money.
Right now, Sony hold virtually no cards in the deck, they loose money on thier console, they are price reactive to get sales and they are at pretty much the will of their competitiors.
Consider this scenario:
WiiU is released at $299 with BR and better performaing games next year.
720 is released the following year with a leap in graphics/inlcudes BR.
It really leaves the PS3 out in the cold. Sony needs to turn a profit and make the Vita sucessfull to get back on track.
If they cant subsidise the PS4 with either the PS3 or Vita, they are up $#@! creek.
Regardless of thier sales.
Quite frankly both Nintendo and MS are probably looking at Sony and trying to judge how they will react, not proact.

most consoles on the market today are 'dynamic' because they have new updates and constantly move forward in terms of what they offer, but its very strange to see an end user praising such a 'woolly' phrase as dynamism. that's the realm of employees - dressing up a product with bull$#@! and meaningless words.
i just found your enthusiasim a little over the top. the ps3 is just the 360 with better games, and a slightly $#@!ter store. it plays blurays, which is nice, but with players @£35 i think that ship has sailed. the 360 is a very competent media player and all round console that is just lacking the volume of 1st party content.
as mynd suggests, price has just as much to do with longevity.

But let me go ahead and say that my parents bought a PS3 two or so years ago because they liked browsing youtube on TV. As much as I loved the PS3, I made them take it back.
They eventually got one again for Netflix...I didn't stop them then...their new one is a slim and they got it when it went down to $299.
Point is, I think it's donkey balls $#@!ass, I'm sure everyone else here does too but that doesn't stop people from looking at it as a feature.
I told them that they should get a laptop instead...but they don't want the hassle to hook it up to their TV every time they wanna watch something and they don't wanna dedicate it just for their TV...funnily enough they only wanted their PS3 for one feature, go figure.
