    That just sounds like a mixture of PR and unproven comments claimed on an internet forum.

    Do you have something to support your claims?

    Or is all this just the way you perceive things there?

    I'm French and I think it's a very low number, I thought we'd be at 7-8 M at least, maybe even nearing 10 M. Microsoft with their broken toy and Nintendo with their gimmick really killed the console business, all they sell is a brand or use unfaithful tactics (buying timed exclusivity and saying it's full exclusivity) or profit from trend to sell a gimmick to non technical people that can't judge if the product is up to date with modern technology.

    So its all MS and Nintendos fault that PS3 sales are lower than you thought? Sony is completely blameless? Sony didnt make any mistakes this generation? Just blame MS and Nintendo for Sony's troubles. I do agree about the motion control stuff though. Kinect, Wii and Move.

    360 sells good in the UK as well. Not sure who's in the lead there but I know the 360 hold its own in that territory. PS3 seems to do better in the non-english speaking countries. But I do agree that the NA market is where the main bulk of 360 sales come from.

Not to mention consoles are the most expensive with the Euro currency, countries like Spain are in a really bad state right now. So expecting PS2 sales out of PS3 in these countries is out of the question in their current state.



    As of September 16th:

    Out of curiosity do we have up to date numbers for the UK and AU/NZ?

    Considering those markets its odd that they don't put out sales figures.

    Were you just as upset and annoyed when people were buying the PS2 instead of the more powerful Gamecube and Xbox?

    i think his definition of most popular console depends on what forum he's posting on at that minute.

    Good at what? Trolling? Because if you say hes trying to wind people up then that means hes trolling.

    Breathe? You might want to take your own advice. lol And you said earlier that he "loves to wind up the usuals" which constitutes trolling. So now youre trying to back pedal.

    If I was calling him a troll. I'd have said it . But what I did say was I enjoy his posts very much

    Wind up merchant is considered a bit of a jester, where I'm from. So again:

    Your description of what you said hes doing is called trolling according to forum rules so yeah, you kinda were calling him a troll. But anyway it doesn't matter. His posts dont offend me because I'm not tied to a brand. I already agreed with Sufi that I find his posts entertaining.
