With the recent announcement of the PS3 Slim, there has been much speculation as to whether or not this will “save” Sony in the current console generation. I’d like to offer some of my thoughts on that very opinionated subject.
It’s a widely known fact that PS3 sales are lower than 360 and Wii sales, but with the new PS3 Slim and recent price cuts announced by Sony, it looks like they will be increasing sales dramatically. Although they will probably not be able to catch up entirely that doesn’t make this generation a failure. By coming out with a slimmer and cheaper model, Sony is proving that they are willing to do as much as possible to research cheaper ways to manufacture and produce their systems and I think that that will help them out in future generations. I think that Sony has a good chance to regain the top spot in sales next generation if they continue to pursue cheaper and more effective ways to produce their systems. The PS3 Slim will now take the place of the original PS3 and become THE PS3 to own this generation.
