    Wasn't this the same as last year? I thought it would be less by now.

    Well in the last report I heard about in recent memory the 360 had a 4 million lead back up again. So apparently Sony is closing the gap yet again.

    Meanwhile, both are catching up with the Wii. I always said but I still think both will eventually pass the Wii LTD. The Wii has been hanging around 90 - 100m for awhile to my knowledge and used to have over 50% of the marketshare.

    It won't really matter if they catch the wii or not. They are set to launch again and no matter what you can't take away the marketshare/money they made from it. Either way, what they pulled off this gen was impressive. When they sit down to count the money, Reggie will be smiling more than the other two.

    I know it doesn't matter, neither do profits since I don't see a cent of that money. I made a prediction that the Wii wouldn't stay on top forever either before or after next gen starts. Some of us don't take sales so seriously, ultimately we only care about the games.

    Profits do matter. Maybe not to us but this is a business first and foremost. Lucky for us we don't have to take sales seriously, butwith out money there would be no games to care about.

    I'd love for you to say that if you only had the Wii to play with.

    Profits matter if the product is being invested in. Otherwise, it shouldn't matter to you because you're not getting the benefits.

    That's why I like companies that make profit that they reinvest into their business.

    Yeah Nintendo is laughing all the way to the bank. You have to hand it to them.

    In the case of future products it matters, but in Nintendos case it doesn't. Take a look at the 3DS' lineup for example, how many new IPs are they starting up with the money they've made this gen? Exactly.

    I don't know about nintendo IPs because I don't play portables but you can't really expect to believe that a corp would put millions of dollars in R&D of a product and not be concerned if consumers will buy it or not. Sales do matter. When was the last time you heard Sony, MS, or NIN say they don't care how much their products sell? Go ask THQ and others who are in financial trouble if sales matter.

    I never said they didn't matter to them, I said they didn't matter to me. The only reason I want them to be profitable is to see future products from them. In the case of Nintendo though it doesn't matter to me either way.

    Of course I care about sales, hence why I post Japan's sales every week. I enjoy following sales and seeing how consoles are doing, but it doesn't affect me directly because ultimately I only care about the games. I don't even know why we're discussing this when my first post was about a prediction I made that Wii wouldn't be above PS3 or 360 forever.

    You also talked about market share which is basically sales. The thread is about how many consoles PS3 trail by, which is also sales.

    But not profits/money, which is what you brought up.

    LOl..its kinda hard to talk about sales without it.... You seemed to have no problem talking about profits earlier in another thread though:

    Now how is this any different? Does that sound like you don't care about profits?

    Sales matter, just not to me.

    Sony games don't sell well, yet for more than three years they have had the biggest line up of core exclusives released. So, why should I personally care? Sony are showing 20 games at E3. lol

    I know right? That's what people don't seem to understand. Like you can't enjoy gaming unless the machine you're gaming on is 1st place in sales? I didn't know this was a popularity contest. I thought we were just having fun.

    Yeah some people are just like that I guess. Those people arent having fun and enjoying the hobby thats for sure. And it isnt like the sales that they brag about regarding their console is going to put money in their pockets anyway unless theyre a shareholder. lol

    I guess a 1yr head start isnt as big a deal as some make out.

    Never was a big deal to me. I bought PS3 first this gen anyway. Next gen it will be vice versa. Gotta share the love.
