    honestly, few if any games last gen had the same edge-of-your-seat intensity like some games I've played this gen have. HL2 did that for me, but that was for PC. Resistance, COD4, HS, Uncharted, MGS4, Warhawk... all of these games get my blood pumping. None have been rivaled in experience by any game last gen IMO. There were some awesome games, but none have sucked me in to the point of making me break a sweat from the adrenaline rush like a good game of warhawk.

    I dunno, this gen games are more compelling to me too... I've played through more games in one year than I have on my PS2. Not that that is something to write home about (I didn't have the cash to buy games), but still
    Kept you waiting

    If you sweat while playing games you need to get in shape.

    Sony Releases PlayStation Sales Numbers
    Posted by Dustin S. | Jul 17, 2008 19:59

    Many people have been doubting the growth and even the eventual success of the PlayStation name brand after slumping sales to begin the PS3 life, but recent sales may have turned them away. We have the official sale numbers right here for your viewing, and to be honest they don’t look bad at all.

    The sale growth has not only gained impressive numbers on the PS3 console but Sony is seeing tremendous improvements along all 3 consoles on the board. PS3 Hardware Sales Exceed 311% Year-Over-Year with total PlayStation unit sales over the 405,000 mark. The sales of the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle were a major help to the PS3 sales, and even beat out Xbox 360 sales by 84%. This year, the PlayStation name brand has already had a 90% sales increase year by year.

    The overall growth in sales in June were 311% with a month to month growth of 94%. The exclusive Metal Gear Solid title was also the best selling video game with over 774,000 copies sold in the month of June. Other titles have also had a 300% growth with the PS3 hardware as well, which does not include the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle. The PlayStation Network has also gained over 10 million account world wide with over 180 million downloads already purchased.

    While this is amazing news on a business standpoint, this only marks the beginning for the PlayStation 3. With Metal Gear Solid 4 just the first blockbuster title to come out this year, we can expect sales to keep rising with such titles as Socom Confrontation, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, and the long awaited Resistance 2 hitting store shelves later this year.

    With this exciting news, we can only expect Sony to keep delivering the goods.
    Metal Gear Solid 4 tops US June sales

    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - a PlayStation 3 exclusive - was the best-selling videogame in the US in June according to data released today by the NPD Group.

    "While the attached media report does not include units bundled with hardware, if included MGS4 sold-through nearly 1 million units," said NPD Group analyst Anita Frazier.

    Total Hardware sales in June amounted to USD 615.1 million, a 54 per cent increase from the same period of the prior year, with software sales of USD 872.6 million - up 61 per cent from June 2007.

    Nintendo - which saw lifetime sales of the Wii surpass those of the Xbox 360 this month - placed four Wii and two DS titles in the top ten. LucasArts LEGO Indiana Jones game charted on three different platforms, with the Wii version leading the DS and PS2 versions.

    "Wii Play continues to achieve an attach rate of over 50 per cent to every new Wii hardware system sale," Frazier said. "I can't think of another game that has ever had that kind of performance after 16 months at retail."

    The top ten best-selling videogames in the US for the month of June were:

    * 1 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) 774,600*
    * 2 Guitar Hero On Tour (DS) 422,300
    * 3 Ninja Gaiden II (360) 372,700
    * 3 Wii Fit (Wii) 372,700
    * 5 Wii Play (Wii) 359,100
    * 6 Battlefield Bad Company (360) 346,800
    * 7 Mario Kart Wii (Wii) 322,400
    * 8 LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (Wii) 294,500
    * 9 LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (DS) 267,800
    * 10 LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure (PS2) 260,300

    Um, people still need Wii-motes. It's at 29 million now, you think only the early adopters needed Wii-motes?

    That's Wii Sports which is bundled everywhere but Japan (where it still has over 3 million in actual retail sales).
    The current US government is the type of government the founding fathers fought against and warned us about.

    Here's an optimistic lad for you...

    Hirai told the Financial Times that Sony is targeting 150 million PS3 sales during the first nine years of the console’s lifecycle.

    Released in 1994, the original PlayStation has sold 102m units, while the PlayStation 2, now in its ninth year on the market, has sold in excess of 140m units.

    "It's not fun for me replicating the PS2 numbers. I've seen that movie already," Hirai said.

    "I want to try to see if we can exceed the PS2 numbers after nine years, otherwise why are we in this business?"

    At the end of its fiscal year in March sales of Sony’s PS3 totaled 12.85m units. The company said last week that it is “well on its way” to hitting its ten million sales target for the current financial year.

    He had a double shot of the Sony kool aid that morning.

    If the PS2 can't do 150 million, the PS3 can only dream.

    Wait a moment, he either just lied or the editor of that article made an error. The PS2 only just shipped 130 million as of a few months ago. Where did the extra 10 million just come from? And 9th year? Uh, we are still in 2008, yes?

    you know... my 9 yearold nice has lost 1 DS and broken another she's on her third and about to ruin it as a result of using a pencil as a replacement stylus.

    witch rases the question...

    how much of the DS's sales are spoiled brat replacements? seeing how most 6-18 yearolds in the US have 0 sence of taking care of anything because we are a nation of spoiled shits.

    wonder if japan is any differant?

    side note: some how i got a tiny crack in the screen of my 1st gen PSP...
    We the people...

    my ex had a ds with a couple of games. My favorite oddly enough was Brain Age. It was just so addictive to get the best time. Of course when you have to scream the colors the shit will cheat and think you said something else.
