    Define better and fun...

    There was "better" PS3 games than 360 games last year... And it also seems like it this year too. look at metacritics more PS3 games last year score a 9+ avg score than 360 games...
    Edit:
    Sony was always in trouble? lol, dont make me laugh...

    umm one in every ps3 sold there was 4 xbox's sold? LOL Where is your source? maybe in north america...

    Personally i think the only reason why Sony is in trouble is because of over pricing. They put too much coinfidence into the market, considering the reccession.

    Lol.. Consoles.. good times.. good times... Hey guys, Go buy a PC that'll last you a good 6-7 years. Infact, make one yourself, last ya 10 years easy *few upgrades here, there*

    And skipping the whole mini-console war going on here..

    If sony japan closes, the entire sony industry will go down the drain.. I've been a sony fanboy since the launch of the PS1, It was my first real system *I had a GBC before that* and I loved it. I sorta agree that the new games coming out for the PS3 are not as good as others, but its still pulling in a good portion of the money from the buyers.. I mean its not like its only selling a 5-6 thousand consoles a year..

    Sony posted there hardware losses today for the third quarter:

    Can Sony bounce back from this even with a price drop? Maybe, but at the end of the day these are terrible sales for a quarter in which the most sales should be occuring.

    PS3 shipped just about the same as 360 in 2008
    PlayStation 3: 10.77m
    Xbox 360: 10.8m

    SHIPPED LIFETIME TO DATE
    PlayStation 3: 21.35m
    Xbox 360: 28.45m

    link

    remember PS3 was outselling the 360 early 2008 until 360 had the price drop...
