What the heck is going on with the console war?

100°
340w ago - What's the deal with Microsoft losing the entire first quarter of 2008's hardware sales to the PS3 and Wii while not really seeming to give care? Is it all show (the not caring part) or what?

Maybe I should start taking bets for what Microsoft's "official" reason will be this time. They've already used up "underestimated demand" and "production capacity issues". My money's going on "Who cares about March anyway?! March is a stupid doo-doo month!"

In anticipation of Thursday's official release of the NPD sales numbers, analysts are predicting that Sony outdid Microsoft for March. I'm not sure about you, but I was getting used to seeing Xbox 360 sales as the metric people really watched, while Wii sales were a never-ending fluke we expected to crash at any moment and the PS3 was the little system that (never) could.

When the PS3 outsold the 360 the first time, we all agreed... it was a fluke. Then it happened again, but that was okay since it was sort of a mistake on Microsoft's part combined with another fluke success on Sony's part. Now, we're approaching official confirmation of the third time (in a row no less,) suggesting this is edging toward an actual "trend" with the monthly order of hardware sales repeatedly coming in Wii>PS3>360.

Sony Senior Vice President talks PSN; Network Cards shipping!

50°
340w ago - Sony Senior Vice President Peter Dille has been talking about their plans for the Playstation Network this year on the US PlayStation Blog.

Information revealed included that: we can expect fewer arcade remakes and more original content on the PSN, they're committed to brining in-game access to XMB features, PlayStation Cards are currently shipping to retailers nationwide and will be available in denominations of $20 and $50 starting this spring.

To quote: It has been a while since I last wrote on the blog. I've been looking to take the opportunity to talk about PLAYSTATION Network and thought today's availability of the redesigned PLAYSTATION Store would be the perfect entry point to outline what we have planned for the broader PLAYSTATION Network this year.

First off, we're excited about the new look and feel of the PLAYSTATION Store. Personally, I've been looking forward to this update for a long time as, in my view, the previous PLAYSTATION Store experience wasn't one that lived up to our brand. But this new UI is much more dynamic and allows us to elegantly display and merchandise a lot more content, which is very important today, but will be critical going forward with so much great new content coming onto the Store. We look forward to hearing your input and reaction...
