Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

Quote:
As per a research conducted by Nielsen Media Research, as much as 50 percent of video gamers will not buy an Xbox 360 until Sony Releases the PlayStation 3. Now, this is a huge percentage of potential customers for Microsoft, which are postponing their decision to purchase a unit of Xbox 360.

Re: Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

I'll buy a PS3 when they're under $200 and have a huge game library built up. I defnitely don't fit the "early adopter" profile.

And then there's this asshole...

For consumer electronics I agree.

Call me the bargain hunter.

Actually I bought one about a year ago for $179.99 CND. It's the newer slimline system or whatever they call it. I bought a memory card and GT4... haven't added anything since. I've got GT4 up to about 69% but haven't had much opportunity to play it in the last few months.

I might buy San Andreas, and I'll definitely buy Tourist Trophy and Jaws the Revenge (look it up).

I'll probably sell it all off right before I buy my $200.00 PS3.

I have owned (and eventually sold) nearly every console since NES. I make sure to sell while they're still worth a bit.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

Would a PS2 be worth a plugged nickel once '3' comes out? Hell, you can get a new thin line PS2 now for $138 locally.

Re: Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

I too am guilty of waiting. While the 360 is cool and all, I'm waiting for PS3. Always been a HUGE Playstation fan and love my PS2...so PS3 should be even better.

Re: Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

I'm not a big fan of xbox myself, no titles impress me enough to buy one, mainly due to FPS style domination of the xbox scene.

PS3 however I will be one of the first to own one, as I was with PS2 since I know the game selection will be huge shortly after the release of the new system.

Re: Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

I waited on all the next-gen systems to drop the price before I bought in, I plan to do the same this time around.

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: Research suggests gamers waiting for PS3

I'll wait and wait and more than likely never buy any console. Just not into them. I like playing my old crap on occasion, but these new games just do nothing for me. I can't stand FPS, and don't like using a joystick as a steering wheel.
I wouldn't mind adding a Manx TT Superbike arcade machine to the game room, though.

Man Sues Microsoft Over Flawed Xbox 360 Dec. 6, 2005

Robert Byers of Chicago filed the suit in federal court on Friday, and seeks unspecified damages and court expenses, as well as the replacement or recall of the Xbox 360.
By Gregg Keizer
TechWeb News



A Chicago man filed a proposed class-action lawsuit against Microsoft that alleges the Redmond, Wash.-based company's new Xbox 360 has a design flaw that causes it to overheat, then crash.

Robert Byers filed the suit in federal court on Friday, and seeks unspecified damages and court expenses, as well as the replacement or recall of the Xbox 360.

Complaints began circulating on gaming message boards soon after the Nov. 22 launch of the new game system, with buyers trading stories of intermittent crashes. Some diagnosed the problems as caused by overheating, and advised owners to, among other things, dangle the power supply with string so that air could circulate around it.

Microsoft has denied a systemic problem, but has said it would repair or replace defective units. The official support site lists 10 items in the Xbox 360 FAQ, but none relate to overheating issues.

Microsoft faced power supply problems with the 360's predecessor, the Xbox, in February, when it recalled the power cords of more than 14 million consoles because they posed a fire hazard. Prior to that, 30 Xbox-caused fires resulted in either minor injuries or property damage.

A lawsuit related to that defect was recently filed by a Texas couple, who claimed that their Xbox's faulty power supply started a fire that burned down their house in January, 2005.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
