    I'm hoping they are dropping GT6 with the new console. Lol

    That would be advantageous for them, but don't those things take a really long time to make?

    That gives Nintendo even more pressure to deliver for WiiU, although to be honest, if Sony chooses to make yet another expensive console, it will be disastrous for them.

    It's tricky--what if they know that Microsoft's next entry is going to be pricey? What do they do? They can't afford to lose a lot of money again, but do they want to release a machine that risks being looked down upon by the "hardcore"-die hard clan? They'll keep their big time fans, sure, but how do they combat perceptions of those riding the fence? Nintendo had it easy in that regard, if it wins over a lot of fence-sitters it will be over the long haul, and Nintendo knows that. As far as putting pressure on Nintendo, yeah it does that, but if they get nervous they can open their mouths and actually say something about, like, a game or two. Or maybe release a big game right around that time--it wouldn't surprise me if they had that in mind all along. Sony usually announces a new console about a year before it launches, and considering when the dev kits went out, that makes a lot of sense--so, Q2 of '14. That gives Nintendo a lot of time to prepare, which is why they hurried to put out Wii U (and also why the Wii sort of died an early death). I bet the 720 comes out first, probably in time for this Xmas.

    Yeah, PS4 is in a precarious position that PS3 wasn't before its announcement. Back then everyone thought PS3 was going to crush Wii, but it turned out to be too pricey. Now that PS3 failed to match the sales of its predecessor and Sony lost a lot of exclusives (Dragon Quest, Monster Hunter, and even Final Fantasy, which is basically multi-platform now), they seem to be where Nintendo was when they unveiled GameCube.

    It does however they have been working on GT6 since they release GT5 so its been in development for a couple years now it "could" be ready for a new console release that would give sony a HUGE boost at launch.

    Yeah but shipped doesn't equal sales. If half of that shipped is still in stock in stores it isn't that good

    Yeah, they'll need some big titles, unfortunately. Especially if they release last. I said it on another thread a long time ago--if they do release last, they'll have a lot of time to figure out what's going on with the 720, and that could work to their advantage if they plan intelligently.

    Will never understand why anyone ever buys Sony products, but then again, we just reelected a guy as president that took the short bus to elementary school, smoked his way through high school, and was an admitted drug dealer at Harvard.

    All shipped consoles are paid for so it does matter to sony cause those shipped consoles are paid for already.

    At 70 million the PS3 has outsold the NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, Xbox, GCN, ect.. That's lifetime sales for all those mentioned consoles as well

    Its sitting with that number in the top ten of all time best selling consoles. This gen is the first with 3 consoles selling well.

    The PS3 was certainly a success, but not as big as Sony hoped, or the console probably deserved. They really can't afford another cash hemorrhaging launch this time around.

    By Sony standards the PS3 was profitable mind you these are the previous consoles numbers..

    Ps1: 100 million +

    PS2: 150 million +

    I'm sure ps3 may hit 100million before they discontinue it.

    The Vita they just screwed themselves while its impressive they have done a horrible marketing the vita and producing content for the Vita.

    PS4 is gonna be huge for the company as a whole.

    I doubt it, though; we all thought GameCube was going to be huge when Nintendo came off the N64 launch (and the PS3 performance gives me vibes of that), and look at how that turned out.

    Well I meant was its going to be a HUGE in a sense it needs to be successful for sony as a company as a whole they can't afford another Vita type situation with the PS4. I have no idea if it will be huge in terms of sales or market share that's all up in the air
