Projection: PS3 Will Surpass 360 By January 2011?

One can interpret statistics in a variety of different ways, but in the end, it's the bottom line that matters.

According to projections by TVG Research, PlayStation 3 sales will outpace Xbox 360 sales by January 2011. You can view the estimated progression chart through the link, and the updated userbase numbers are as follows: since launching in November 2005, the 360 has sold 30.2 million units, and since its launch in November 2006, the PS3 has sold 24.6 million units, which means the rate of PS3 sales is actually faster. If the PS3 does indeed overtake the 360 in early 2011 as projected, that will mark the supposed halfway point of the PS3's 10-year lifespan (as Sony keeps insisting it is). If you factor in future price cuts, plus the arrival of the new motion sensing technologies for both systems, the sales rates may alter accordingly. For our part, we have to consider that the 360 had one whole year without any competition whatsoever, and the PS3 still had to deal with a rookie year that suffered from incessant negative press and low overall sales. Given the momentum acquired since then, and glancing down the road at the exclusive blockbusters and the obvious chance of a price cut, it's tough to disagree with TVG's estimates.

But who knows? Maybe Natal will be as popular as the Wii. Maybe the next Halo will single-handedly keep the 360 in the lead. We can't predict the future.

I think yes, it's only a matter of time at this point. I don't know if Jan 2011 is when it'll happen, but I basically look at it like this. Sony is clearly aligning all of their cards into one, huge smorgasbord of gaming entertainment. Huge 1st party exclusives that people have either been waiting years for (GoW3, GT5), or newer IP, that have people really excited (Uncharted 2, MAG, EyePet, Demon Souls, WKC, Quantum, Heavy Rain etc...).

So, in that regard, the substance will be on the platform very very soon (Not to say it's not already been there...but you know what I mean). The Price cut for Sony, combined with their new marketing strategy/release lineup, should propel the PS3 out front as it did with MGS4. I just hope that it's a lasting effect.

And, in retrospect, I think Sony should talk to it's 1st parties, and have them pump out some more sequels to family/gamer friendly franchises that excel'd on PS2. Give the people who own(ed) a PS2 even more reason to break down and buy a PS3. (Break down..bah, they should be tripping over themselves to get one). Onimusha, Sly Cooper, Jak & Daxter, etc...

Agree. The battle is won by having great games. I think a major annoyance of this generation is the exceedingly slow turn around time for game development coupled with everyone announcing their game years in advance. I understand great games take time but the constant delays are frustrating.
I think we are getting close to getting over the hump when there will be a steady stream of good games coming out. Too many long gaps between titles I was really interested in this year.

Your right on that one bxshotboi. I know I have problems with voice recognition games like RSV2 recognising my accent, and that just uses simple pre-programed commands.

And have you ever been to the UK? Im sure the UK has more variations in accents than any other country. Crazy, for a relatively small country.

I think we are a long way from seeing something like Milo. Even the top voice recognition software wouldn't be able to do what Microsoft are claiming Milo can do at this moment in time.

Its too hard to predict. I say the release of PS3 slim will let Sony catch up by 4 million each year. But this is assuming Xbox doesn't do anything with price or releases to retaliate.

You cant tell what project Natal will do in the market, but there's too many Wii fans that are interested in the stupid control schemes. If there are 1/5 of the Wii people upgrading to Xbox, thats 10 million extra user that PS3 needs to catch up to.

Its a battle of who can attract more casual players with the motion controls. The core gamers are us, where we bought it regardless of price.

Well, to be fair, Sony's gadget is far more similar to the Wii's than Natal. If they'd jump simply for the motion sensing, it'd make sense they'd go with something they're more familiar with.

The release of the PS3's and 360's respective motion controls could, and probably will, play a big part in snapping up the casual/Wii gamers to the 'proper' next gen consoles. Its just a matter of who will have it our first, and from what I've been reading it looks like Sony's new motion tech will be released before Microsoft's. So that, along with a price cut, should work in Sony's favour in closing that gap in sales.

The Jasper models have only made them 'safer'. Not immune to a manufacturing defect. There are also other problems with the 360 as well, E-74 errors, comes to mind. These aren't made up issues, Microsoft was forced to publicly acknowledge, not only the existence, but prior awareness of these defects. Hence the class action suit that started in California (who knows where that went), and why MS tripped over themselves to offer the warranty extension.

My problem is, it's still a piece of crap. It may cost me nothing to replace should it break down...except my free time. Which is not on.

I got a 360 in January 09, only because it came bundled with the TV I wanted at Best Buy. I have no idea if it's a "Jasper" or "Falcon", but having only played through 3 games, I had to pay $5.75 to ship it off to get fixed. No actual RRoD, but it would permanently freeze up after about 3 minutes of gameplay making it useless. It is a piece of crap.

The only issues Ive noticed with the PS3 is the blue Ray Drive eventually fails. Seem to be icolated to 60gb models too. Even then you still get 2 or more years of use out of it. Unlike the xbox. Dies within a year.

Interesting how this news breaks at about the same time as the news about the 'declining sales' of PS3. Almost as if someone wanted to spin Sony's short term sales problem to obscure the fact that PS3 has sold faster than 360 since launch....Who'd do a thing like that?

new gamers still buy the 360 because most of the time they cant just be patient and save up for sumting that in the long run is better or are just cheap and lets not forget how most parents rather buy their child a 200-250 dollar system instead of getting a 300-400 dollar system and in my opinion 500 dollars wasnt a bad price for the ps3 since the psp cost about 250 when it first came out and tons of people still bought it nowadays people are just concerned over price and not quality

I think most people are unaware of the advantages offered by the PS3. They see that (for the most part) the same games come out on each system, and think "why pay more?"

Also, Sony does not know how to advertise.

I think that even with the new halo they wont get a huge 360 sales burst cause most of the people who love to play halo already have a 360. So it might be a little bump but I don't really think that the next halo will be a system seller.

I'd be more interested in knowing how many systems have ended up in landfills or the bottom of the closet, or a box in the basement. It's not the number of repairs that really matter, it's the number of people who have a dead system and a live replacement. How many of the 30 million units sold have passed on to the great used system bin in the sky?

I wasn't looking for number of repairs, per say, but number of actual systems that were submitted. They could have one system sent in for three repairs but I'm looking for number of consoles not the frequency for each unit. We'll never get the real number of broken Xbox 360s, how many units were bought because they were a replacement, etc. I can tell you this, though. I have a broken 360 behind me, that broke after about twenty hours of usage. Good thing it was free.

Though, I admit that Sony sometimes get "forced" to follow some things. But usually, they just plays their own game.

Its possible but MS won't just sit there either.

This is why i don't fully support a universal console cause, its competition like this that is responsible for the pending Natal and Ps3 Motion plus all those future PS3 exclusives.
If the Wii didn't do so well,do you think we woulda had PS3 Motion & Natal coming this early?
I'm sure both Sony & Microsoft woulda integrated that in the PS4 & 720 respectively, thanks to Nintendo, we're having it on these current consoles.

Honestly i thank MS & the Xbox 360 for making Sony work hard and i thank Sony & the PlayStation 3 for making MS work hard and lastly i thank Nintendo for making both of'em work harder.

I especially love the comments from Xbox guys that go like: "They said 2007 would be the year of the PS3. And then 2008. And then 2009. Every year is supposed to be the year of the PS3! Ha ha! And it never happens!"

And I think that's pretty hilarious that these guys really aren't paying attention to what has already happened.

I still hear people saying the PS3 has no games, too.

Xbox got a huge head start by releasing a year earlier... and more than half of that head start has evaporated.

Do you suppose Microsoft keeps hurling money at buying exclusives because the PS3 is dead in the water like Microsoft's fans think?

if they keep releasing quality titles and bloody MARKET their games, than i dont see why not.
but they have to market there games, honestly people dont even know the ps3 exist because the lack of advertisement.
and they need to localize there games faster, have worldwide release dates for there exclusives, if activision can do it why not sony.
if they do those verry simple things they should overtake the 360.
but i can see a new M$ console by 2011 so they wont be enjoying the lead for to long.

It sad when people cling to a sinking ship, I can't think of a single xbox exclusive that I want.

gears 2?
thats the best shooter ive played so far.
the enemies vary, the weapons are really cool.
the tactics you use in the game is always changing.
thats what i wanted in KZ2.
basically in KZ2 all you do is cover and shoot.
but do that in gears 2 and you will get your a$$ handed to you.
and come on being eaten by a massive worm than killing it buy slicing its arteries.
now thats bad ass

Those are two different games you chop... Gears 2 (Third person shooter), KZ2 (First person shooter)not really a good comparison if you ask me. It's better comparing two of the same type of game together. So let's way up Gears 2 to Uncharted 2 instead and then see how they measure up....

so by your logic, you cant compare gears 2 to uncharted 2 because ones a platformer and ones a TPS.
you should compare uncharted 2 to ratchet and clank there both TPS and both platformers.
anyway how does U2 compare to gears 2.
just because they both have guns and are in 3rd person.
ones a bad a$$ game ripping things apart.
and ones a refined story driven game.
might aswell compare apples to pears, sure their both fruit but there completely different.
you would be better off comparing quantum theory to gears 2, both have guns both are TPS both have that bad a$$ tough guy feel to them.

what does it have to do with the genre?
what so a feature from say a platforming game cant be added to a FPS.
