Is it just me, or has the PS3 just sky rocketed in popularity since the launch of the slim? I remember reading somewhere that it's had something like a 200% increase in sales in the past few weeks, and that the BBC has claimed that 10% of all iPlayer users are now PS3 users as well as major publishers reporting a massive increase in sales for the system.
Now, I'd like to sit here and brag about how the PS3 is finally going to "Win the console war" and then there'll be a parade or something, but there's a more reasonable point to be considered.
I just think Sony have altered the price at the right time.
Let's face it, who doesn't have a Xbox these days? Pretty much everyone who just wants a games console goes for the Xbox, because it's cheaper and let's face it, everyone has one. Now however, with the Playstation offering a wider variety of games and applications, and with a brand new cheaper price tag it's looking more accessible then ever. It's all been about timing, and with Christmas coming up and the Xbox gouing through a bit of a dry spell for exclusives Sony couldn't have done this at a better time.
Or, it could just be because the Playstation's better. But I wouldn't be one to comment.
