Dear Sony. Re: PS3

You Suck.

Best Regards,

Someone who in 2008 mocked your CEO for calling the Wii a “novelty”, in 2007 called your pricing strategy “insanity” and in 2006 said gamers should buy an Xbox 360 and Wii for the same price as a PS3.

Sony’s PS3 is dying on the shelves.

Alone among the three major videogame consoles, sales of the PS3 are down about 19% from November 2007, according to the latest stats from the NPD Group. Sony was only able to sell 378,000 PS3s this November, compared to 466,000 last year.

And the problem for Sony isn’t the recession, it’s the PS3. Microsoft put up respectable numbers with its Xbox 360, selling 836,000 units vs 777,000 in November 2007. And Nintendo’s Wii continues to dominate the market, more than doubling sales from 981,000 to 2.04 million.

  • Sony completely screwed this up. Even now, the PS3 is $100 more expensive than the Xbox 360. Why now, as the PS3 languishes on the shelves does Sony still think consumers will fork out more for it? One word, dumb.
