You're not reading it right. :p

The 17M figure is using their old counting method, the 50M is using the new one (which they started using April 1st).

GT5 is a slow burner, and Sony knows it.

I doubt it'll do that much better than UC2 did in it's early months, but over the next two years it'll become their best selling game by far

If I'm not mistaken, this refers to the combined PS2 + PS3 + PSP software sales; i.e. the combined sales are expected to be the same as the combined sales of the three platforms last year (so PS3 making up for the declining PS2 and PSP software sales).

You have to add 17 mil to the total in the table to get the LTD sale figure which is 67 mil.

I think Kinect will do quite well this holiday and then fizzle out within 6-8 months (just my guess). Should be a very interesting season indeed!

once this generation ends and the story is written, the historians will not be kind to Sony and the loss of its iron grip on the gaming industry.

the very notion that the words "Sony" and "3rd place" are even in the same sentence is baffling to me when I step out of the moment and look at the last 15 years of gaming. It's almost incomprehensible. Then again, I said the same about Nintendo. Before the N64 came out.

Wanna bet?

EDIT: Actually, it just occurred to me, if it was coming out in the next quarter why didnt they announce it as part of the future guidance with their earnings?

I shook the Magic 8 ball 4 times and here is what it said:

● Don't count on it
● My sources say no
● Outlook not so good
● Very doubtful

It's kind of funny to put this gen into perspective.

You can either look at it as Sony closing the gap, or you can look it at as how they are hitting their 5th year and still in 3rd place.

Well Sony themselves predicted to be in 3rd place:

it's obviously not too close to call since sony shipped about 0.7 million more units somewhere. And I doubt those were to other asian territories.

Places like Korea (for example) are not insignificant markets.

There are lots of territories throughout the world that we just get no numbers for whatsoever, and while the majority of them may individually represent tiny markets the combined effect is really too large to just ignore.

Yea that will be interesting to see. I think everyone knew that eventually the PS3 would overtake the 360 but Microsoft is positioning Kinect to be a monster success and system seller. I'm not so sure that I believe them though. It will definitely be exciting to see how it all unfolds.

PS3 unit sales 0.7m above X360 doesn't mean it has more retail sales this quarter.

Two different things, has several commercial aspects behind the number of consoles shipped to stores in a quarter.
