5 Reasons why the PS3 will come in 3rd this Christmas

Since I seem to be having an anti-PS3 day I thought I would just continue with yet another article sounding out the death knolls for this holiday season.

The Bitbag has posted an article detailing the 5 main reasons why the PS3 will fail this holiday season.

The number one reason ironically is bad press, Sony completely misjudged the consumer in this generation  and while their original arrogance has been tempered gamers have amazingly long memories. We never wanted two jobs to  pay for a console. Anyway this started the bad press that has now turned into a hobby for many websites. Sony is going to have to go on a charm offensive to stop the flood at some time.

The next problem is the lack of killer games for the PS3, it has nothing to compete against Gears or Halo at the moment. This will hurt them terribly.

At number 3 is the competition, the 360 and Wii are pushing hard and it is causing problems for Sony.

The next problem is Sony’s bad marketing, while it may be great in the East the majority of Western gamers don’t like the Sony adverts and marketing. They need to re-think it all.

The last major problem that Sony faces is the PS2, since they are making so much money from the PS2 Sony are obviously not keen on dropping the system, however by dropping the price of the PS2 again they are just keeping gamers away from their new flagship console. Especially since the new 40Gb model is not backwards compatible at all.

Sony really needs to start putting some more effort into it’s PS3 before it loses out next year as well.

    Very true. Riding high on arrogance has got them into this situation. In 2008 they better change their stance towards the regular gaming crowd as honestly they have lost a lot of support from their PS2 gaming core due to some weird PR & Marketing moves.

    @Ruslan

    Dude – you are such a [email protected]

  • Ruslan

    @Hilt – The truth hurts, yes it does. πŸ˜‰

  • hilt_ctn

    I’m not commenting further on the frame rate post. This is about your posts in general. Lazy doesn’t need a lackie. Try having an opinion of your own

  • Ruslan

    Well go complain to someone who cares, do you think you are the only one who enjoys my posts? Get a life or go and moan at the ps3 forums.

    Besides, I dont need an opinion when the writting is on the wall. Just some people are too blind to see it. πŸ˜‰

  • hilt_ctn

    LOL ! Get a life ? Rich coming from someone who comments on almost every article. You spend far too much time indoors. Go play outside with the other kids and get some sun. Clearly you’ve forgotten what it looks like. Not surprising considering you are so far up Lazys @ss ( fyi the sun is that big glowing orb in the sky )

    Lazy – No offence

  • Milesh Bhana ZA

    glowing orb? You mean like those things we collect in Crackdown ? (oh wait, that’s not on the PS3 either)

  • Ruslan

    Keep it up Hilt. Lazy loves hits on his website. πŸ˜‰

  • LazySAGamer

    lol you guys seem to be having fun this morning πŸ˜‰

    I have always wondered how two complete strangers can end up arguing over nothing on the internet. I don’t know about that glowing orb either, it’s been overcast in JHB for the last 2 weeks. I can’t remember what it looks like…

    Now can you guys play nice or at least move my free hits over to another story :p…

  • Abe

    More Hits!!!! πŸ™‚

    Gotta say Ruslan I agree with Hilt, you always follow blindly. Is it cos you are a kiss ass or simply a xbot?

  • LazySAGamer

    Great minds think alike πŸ˜‰
