more good new for sony,it just keeps rolling and rolling

Sony's stock prices shot up 4.54 percent (250 yen) to close at 5,750 yen - said to be thanks to the here recent boost in PS3 sales and a deal that saw the Dubai state fund invest up to $500 million in the company.

Koya Tabata, an analyst at Credit Suisse, spotted the obvious: "The news of brisk PS3 sales in North America apparently had an effect on Sony shares."

Conversely, Nintendo shares dropped by 800 Yen (1.28 percent) to 61,700, while Wii remains widely sold out in the major territories worldwide.

For those that don't understand, Sony's doing 'aight'

This was posted yesterday, but good news :).

And this is just the beginning, can you imagine when MGS4 comes out? GT5? Killzone 2? Final Fantasy 13? PS3 will be shooting through the roofs my friends. And we can't forget about the big 3rd party titles either, like Grand Theft Auto 4? :)

Nintendo? win the console war? hardly. Theres so much the mainstream gamers want (proof is with PS2 and PS1, I shouldn't have to make an essay to explain, if your dumb go read them other posts first) that is not available on the Wii that its not even funny.

PS3 for the wins :).

I am honestly impressed with how well the PS3 is doing this early on. I was thinking the party would begin in '08 but the $400 SKU was just what the doctor ordered. I didn't expect some of the games to be as good as they were as well.

Uncharted may just be one of my all time favorite games.

I just realize something. Strong sales of PS3 increased Sony market value by about $ 2.3 billions USD.

Uncharted is sweet. From an entertainment standpoint I have had a much better first three months with the ps3 than with my Launch ps2. I think I bought one at a good time! In three months i have bought 6 games, 13 blu-rays, and some online content. So I think Sony is in a good place right now.

They're doing alright. You never know what could happen. Next time around it could go down.

But the PS3 sales did give it a nice boost. But it's everything Sony sells altogether.

I think I'm 2004. The realest of them all.

It is too bad that they had to leave. Well I started around the Launch and have stuck through the bad times. Its nice to see light at the end of the tunnel.

[QUOTE="the jackle.2, post: 0]ya i was lurking around here for about a year before i got the courage to say hallo......[/QUOTE]

I was a lurker in 2005 as well. At that time I only posted on boardsus.playstation.com. I would often visit here to read the great threads. Does anyone remember the thread about "next Gen graphics. And what to expect from them (not sure of the exact name)" There were pictures featureing ray tracing being thrown around. People were in disbelief about the latest madden bullshots, and pgr3 as well.

The technical disscussions were great. I remember that Terranium (sp?) would always come in and own on the tech side, hehe.

History is about to repeat itself ladies & gentlemen, Now I'll just sit back and watch Sony slowly rise back to the top they supposedly lost according to fanboys of an certain company I wish not to say the name of, for safety reasons.

Who's fanboys are the worst? Sony's? Microsoft's? or Nintendo's? I have an opinion or two but I think I'll wait to see what everyone else thinks

Hey Lefein, I am from 05 and I'm still here! 8)

Proud owner of two PS3s (one from launch) and 20 PS3 disc games and 5 PSN games! 8)8)8)
That ^^^ has nothing to do with the topic, I am just proud! And some still dare say that the PS3 has no games...

I remember Lefein having a Dr Cox avatar. :p

But yeah, it's good to see Sony and the PS3 doing good. That means more games for us and less fanboys ruining the forums every chance they get.
