Year of the PS3

When browsing the net this morning I noticed the unfortunate placing of two article on N4G.

We could go into a deep social analysis of interpreting why people are still looking for the year of the PS3 (We are looking at you Dynamo) and why, no matter how hard they try, they will never truly find the peace that they need.

People have a strong personal desire to be right and certain people view being right as  meaning that others are wrong.

Possibly some people are yearning for the PS3 to conquer all to re-ignite memories of happier, more innocent times. Or they just have some personal dislike against Microsoft and feel that they need to back the underdog in this fight?

Or maybe the 360 fanboys are right and the PS3 fanboys are still trying to justify the extra money they forked out?

I don’t think we will ever know, but one thing is for sure. 2008 was the year of the Nintendo Wii… as was 2007.

2009 is still up for grabs but unless something changes drastically, next year is Nintendo’s as well.

As for the PS3 overtaking the 360 and settling into second spot, don’t hold your breath. As we have discussed before, Sony isn’t eating away at that margin anywhere near fast enough.

With the latest rumours of a new Xbox arriving in 2011 it would seem that Sony only has 3 years to make up 5 million in sales. Add to that a huge price cut in the US and it becomes quite obvious to see that Microsoft are in the driving seat for second.

But fear not, by the time the PS4 comes out the PS3 will have overtaken the 360 in sales. So everyone wins.
