As I said in my first post though given 12 months I think the PS3 will sell masses in about a year when the Gold games come out and the price comes down a bit.
What I am saying is at the moment and for the first 4-5 months sales will now remain low.
Lots of people are holding off due to lack of games, waiting for a price drop, want to make sure the hardware is stable. These people will not be buying a console in the next three months. I was suggesting why the figure of 165000 is an immediate problem for Sony.
As time passes the console will gather strength and will win this round, Sony are to good at consoles not to. But as a launch goes I am quite worried by what I am seeing.
Ought to say why I am worried, well Sony need to get lots of consoles in home soon. As we have seen a lot of third party companies are already getting jumpy about PS3 exclusives. If Sony don't sell lots of PS3's soon it will not make economic sense for any 3rd company to make any game PS3 exclusive. Companys need to see return on investment now not in 6 months when people are ready to buy the PS3. If sales don't pick up world wide it won't be long before FF13 and MGS end up cross platform, the installed userbase for the PS3 won't be big enough to recoupe costs.
