- or worse. What are the odds of a 360 exploding and killing someone before Christmas? Probably not high. But also probably not zero.
Measured on a weekly basis, the PS3 did a bit better than last month, though that's essentially the same as saying that it "sucked a bit less hard." Fact: PS3 sales are still hilariously low. However, these figures are from the period before Sony's latest round of cuts to the PS3's price and feature list
, so Sony fanboys are hopeful sales might pick up yet. Nevertheless, at $399, the PS3 still represents the most expensive console available. If sales don't pick up soon, industry experts expect that by next summer Sony will have slashed the feature list down to the point where a PS3 is composed of little more than a Sixaxis tied to an egg carton with some yarn.
As for everybody's favorite
and cow-riding simulator
, the Wii climbed back up to the top of the hardware charts this month, despite having yet another soft month of software sales. What on earth are people doing with their Wii's? Aside from "not buying games for them." It kind of makes
me wonder if everybody else knows something that I don't. Is there a hardcore porn Easter egg in the Weather Channel? I looked for weeks but the only thing I ended up with was a sore wrist.
In software sales this month, the big news is the success of Guitar Hero III. GH3 sold very well across all platforms, including a healthy 286K units for the Wii, and a whopping 500K for the PS2 version(s.) This suggests to me that whether you play games in 480i or 1080p, the only thing that matters in the end is that you play them like a hurricane.
