Oh, and the downgrade???
I never said anything about the downgrade.
Btw, PS2 is still the best selling console still
Quite true, and this is relevant how since we are discussing the ps3? Also, the fact that the PS2 continues to outsell the PS3 by large margins should concern Sony as the PS3 is supposed to replace the PS2.
How come you think they have a problem with the PS3?
Well, let us see, back to back decreases of 50% in sales volume in NA. Sales well below expectations. If the websites are to be believed, few PS3 exclusive games.
Most financial analysts believe the PS3 will eventually be the winner in the console war by 2010.
Ah yes, financial analysts are invariably right? Hmm, tell that to Enron investors. Tell that to all the people who invested in the Dot.com bubble before it collapsed. Analysts are not always right.
Do you not think Sony is planning longer forward than a couple of years?
I am sure that they do have a long term plan. But again, what does that have to do with what is being discussed, which is the relative poor sales performance of the ps3. I am sure that Sony is going to do what it has to to sell the PS3.
Also do you have more information than a financial analyst who has access to some decent research?
No, but the sales numbers are not pretty. Explain to me how back to back drops of 50% are a good thing.
Its not just PS3 that has lower sales than anticipated.
Again true, but given the hype and the projections from Sony, it is something of a bigger deal.
