    Let the haters be the haters. Sony is coming back with full force with PS4. You can bet an arm that they've learned their lesson already.

    I think they have too. I think PS4 will be a stellar console. Not to say PS3 isnt because I think PS3 is an awesome console too. Sony just made some missteps combined with some bad luck. I think we'll see Sony come back with a vengeance with PS4.

    Not saying it did happen. I was saying if that were the case then yeah, it's kinda stupid.

    It really isn't BS either way. It's just that you can't prove either way, either.

    Not really ass-handed by MS, but more so by Nintendo. I don't really get all this fighting terminology in gaming in the first place, it's not like anyone is down and out..

    Dude dont take the terminology so seriously. lol Sony got outsold by MS and Nintendo, how's that? As for the theory I think theres more evidence to prove that its not the case then there is evidence to prove that it is. North America was Sony's biggest territory for PS2 sales last gen. If Americans only bought 360 because it was American then surely they would have bought the original Xbox over PS2. Just look at this article. http://blog.us.playstation.com/2009/...-sales-record/

    lol gotcha.

    No I don;t think that's the main reason either. I just have my own ideas for people "that don't know" (see the Jimmy Kimmel iPhone 5 trick as an example) that just by the American product over the other one.

    Though, I don't think they're in any majority.

    What? like Hyundai?

    If I were Korean, I don't think even I would buy a Hyundai. A Toyota on the other hand - reliable and economical and not too flashy that it gets stolen or damaged.

    The funny thing is had either Nintendo or MS done that it probably wouldve finished them saleswise, Sony was pretty much the only one who couldve (and did) survive doing a $599 console and manage to still have it on the market 5 1/2 years later with 70 mil sold.

    Agree, but it cost them a lot, both fiscally, and market position.
    They have gone 1:1 in sales with MS since launch, outside of Japan. Thats not something sony ever would have envisanged last gen.

    That's as stupid as saying the Japanese don't buy the Xbox 360 because it's American. Japanese do buy American products.

    Exactly what I've been saying. Americans buy Japanese products also which is the point I'm making. Americans bought the PS2 (Japanese console) over the Xbox (American console) last gen which is why its so stupid to say that Americans are buying the 360 over PS3 simply because 360 is American and PS3 is Japanese. You obviously didnt read my post correctly. Read it again carefully this time. Reading comprehension is the key.

    Everything will be back to normal next generation with the PS4.

    Is anyone even looking forward to the PS4? I don't think i've read or heard anything about it. You go out in public and everyone is talking about the Xbox 720.

    Thats true but this gen MS came up and Sony came down. We'll see what happens next gen. If Sony makes PS4 developer friendly and launch it at a competitive price then I think they have a good chance of being on top again. But those two things need to happen in order to avoid a repeat of this gen.

    True, but I would rather have a soft cushion to land on than hitting the ground. By that i mean if the whole industry went under MS would still be O.k. I don't think sony would fare so well.
