DFC Predicts PS3 Will Overtake Xbox 360 Next Year

Posted in General at 2:04 pm by playstation3

DFC Intelligence has come out with its latest forecasts and the outlook looks very good for PS3.

According to DFC, PS3 will overtake Xbox 360 in 2009.

“The Xbox 360 was unable to take advantage of Sony’s struggles to build the type of large lead needed to maintain a long-term advantage,” the group wrote in its May 2008 Dossier.

On the whole, they predict that Wii will take win the next-gen race, because it “has enormous momentum and appeals to the broadest audience.”

If DFC is correct, then Nintendo’s console will also set a new record for the most consoles sold in a single year in 2008.

Surprisingly, a bad economy is good for video games, claims DFC.

“Ironically, a slowing economy can actually help the game industry. Videogames provide a high rate of entertainment return and high gas prices actually encourage people to stay at home and play games,” the report said.

    With a huge blockbuster like Metal Gear Solid 4 coming out in a couple days, the PS3 sales are going to surge. There is no doubt about that. They need to put a huge focus on quality over quantity. I love my PS3 and I just know it’s all uphill from here.

  2. For real the xbox is screwed now that HD-DVD has flopped. BLu Ray was always going to win and PS3 is a long term beast it just needs time. It aint gonna be no different to the PS2, give it a few years everyone will have a PS3 when the prices go down more.

  3. Nice post, I enjoy a lot playing games actually, especially the latest console tech like the PS3. IMHO, PS3 is way better than Wii or XBox 360.
