    PS3 challenging the Wii?

    http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/yoon/2125


    Looks like someone might be trying to steal a little bit of the Nintendo Wii's thunder. Newly found patent documents show that Sony has been hard at work creating a new motion controller for the Playstation 3. "gofreak" over at the NeoGAF forums was the first to stumble on the patent applications.
    Does this put the PS3 over the top? Blue ray, Next Gen Graphics, free online play....and now motion controller?

    Looks like we may have a winner.

    I haven't posted on here in a while, but when I saw this, I laughed so hard that I just couldn't resist.

    Predaphin, you can't SERIOUSLY believe the PS3 can climb out of the hole it dug for itself with some crappy, and most likely WAY overpriced, peripheral. A Dualshock 3 is $55, this pile of garbage will probably go for $99-$129.

    Sony is so far back in 3rd place, it's not even funny. There is NO HOPE for Sony this generation, absolutely none. Looks like we have a WINNER? Jesus Christ, man. Sony is mathematically eliminated this generation. More likely than not, Sony won't be able to recover NEXT generation from it's debacle this one.

    Blu-Ray, Next Gen graphics, free online play, and a motion controller?

    More like: overpriced, no killer exclusive games, sub-par online play, and desperately grabbing at straws for anything that might get somebody to buy one.

    Don't get ahead of yourself. They would have to beat 360 first. Which they haven't been able to do. 360 outsold PS3 by a huge margin over the holidays.

    When the PS3 beats 360 then we can talk about the wii. Right now 360 is kicking PS3's butt.

    Well when you are advertising a $199 piece of crap, that's to be expected. Most of the people buying them were moms who have only researched price instead of the product itself. They are just going to have to spend $100 extra on a hard drive not to mention XBL or maybe a network adapter.

    PS3 is a great system and it DOES have great exclusives. Killzone 2 looks AMAZING btw.

    A piece of crap that's doing a lot better than the PS3. Isn't sony about to lay off thousands of workers? Face reality. Sony lost. I can't say it any better. 360 is here to stay. All sony can do now is to start working on the PS4. Because PS3 is officially a failure.

    Here you go. Just to rub some salt on the wound.





    Hope Fades for PS3 as a Comeback Player

    In Battle of the Game Consoles, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox Widen Leads Over Sony's PlayStation

    For most of this year, Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 videogame console seemed finally to be taking off after a slow start. The PS3, trailing Nintendo Co.'s Wii and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 consoles, was closing in on the No. 2 Xbox 360, with new games and quarterly sales growth at twice the speed of last year.

    But early results from this holiday season aren't promising. U.S. sales of the PS3 fell 19% last month from a year earlier, while sales doubled for the Wii console and rose 8% for the Xbox 360, according to research firm NPD. Analysts say they expect PS3 sales for this month to be flat or lower than last year, while sales for its rivals are likely to rise. And Sony may not reach its goal of selling 10 million PS3 consoles in the fiscal year through March, analysts say.

    If Sony doesn't close the gap with its rivals, it could risk making the PS3 an afterthought to game publishers, who focus most of their resources on the machines with the most users. At the end of September, the Wii had a wide lead with nearly 35 million units sold since its launch in 2006 compared with about 22 million Xbox 360 consoles and 17 million PS3 machines. Nintendo last month sold 2 million Wii machines in the U.S., while Microsoft sold 836,000 Xbox 360s and Sony sold 378,000 PS3s, according to NPD.

    Sony also is suffering from a lack of attractive titles that are exclusive to the PS3. Microsoft has hit the jackpot with two action-adventure game franchises, Halo and Gears of War, which are available only on the Xbox 360. Most of Nintendo's top games are made in house and playable only on the Wii.

    Sony used to have a stable of exclusive games. But in recent years, Microsoft has persuaded most game publishers to release highly anticipated games to it and Sony at the same time.Last month, four of the five best-selling U.S. games were exclusive to either the Wii or Xbox 360, according to NPD. Sony's best-selling game during the month was an action shooter game, Call of Duty: World at War from Activision Blizzard Inc. But twice as many people bought the Xbox 360 version.
