Sony just reported that 440 000 PS3's were sold during the Thanksgiving week. It is nearly quadruple Thanksgiving 2008. That is a good news for Sony.
Compared to Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 still lost by 110 000 units during the week, but it decreases by 31.75% compared to last year's Thanksgiving.
Xbox 360? Still no news from Microsoft.
I am no fanboy of Sony by all means, but I prefer Sony among other consoles. I have a Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3, but I got no Xbox 360. That doesn't mean that I resent toward 360, it just that having PS3 is enough for me. Maybe I just wait if my housemates-to-be will buy one~ But I don't think I have any 360 exclusives that I want to play. I'm fine with PS3 exclusives.
In my own experiences, I rarely played Wii (it has been about 2 month since I last played). Wii is just not suitable for a gamer like myself. I refuse to swing my arms often and stand up just to play games. I rather seat and just holding the normal controller. If I want to move around, going to gym is better, or at least play Dance Dance Revolution. Furthermore, there are less hardcore games for Wii. I think it is more suitable for kids and family, and that is the problem since I'm not living with any kids or families here (unless someone wants to make a family and have kids here in Madison)
Ps3 is great, and I wouldn't want to compare it with PC. Since I don't know much about PC's and its hardware, I wouldn't bother getting a gaming PC. I'm not an owner of 360, so it would be reckless for me to compare it with PS3. I don't even have slightest experiences with 360. As the time I am writing this post, I am very satisfied with my PS3. With its terrific graphic, many awesome games, and great online services, how can I say no to PS3? I love it just how I love my PSone and PS2.
I think Wii is not suitable for a gamer like me. As I play too much M-rated (mature) games, I feel like playing a more relaxing games, but not Wii games. They are just too tiring. Thinking about swinging my arms around make me feel lazy. PS3 has family games also like Singstar, Band Hero and Little Big Planet. I prefer playing this games rather than tiring my body.
Well, most families nowadays have Wii. Wii has sold more than 56 million units by the end of September. Maybe that's why it sold less this year, but who knows~
It's a good thing that the PS3 had gained it momentum after years of hardship. The price drop really make a big differences.
Bring it on, the console war! :p
