    1 thing that really sticks out to me is the madden sales… ps3 has really caught up with the 360, it doesn’t trail it much in the madden sales, which to me says more about the install base that’s playing games(generally)… PS3 has demon souls and uncharted2 .. so very nice. Anyone try borderlands yet?

    Everytime i write something on this website its always me bragging about how the ps3 is coming for nintendo and m$. I told yall that the ps3 is coming for revenge and what does it do, it outsells both the 360 and the wii. I mean come on, it feels damn good to be an ps3 owner. Yes i was one of those ppl buying a new ps3(I bought the slim version). Keep up the good wrk sony it is well deserved.

    P.S. Who ever hasnt tried Folklore should try it. Thats what im playin now and its a really good game and the graphics are superb even for a 2 yr game. This is my first time playing it and i hope they come out with a second.

    It’s great to see the PS3 sales, but I really want to see what it does in the month of October.

  4. #4 by King32 on October 20th, 2009

    Yea me to GM-Luke. I bought me ps3 this month(Oct 16th). I bought it for Uncharted 2. Plus Brutal Legend came out to and from what ppl r tellin me. Brutal Legend is and awsome game. Plus Demons Souls as well. I think the ps3 will beat wii and 360 this month as well.

    I thought Activision was boasting how GH5 was selling better than Beatles:RB. Doesn’t look that way so far.

    @King Folklore is awesome and is way over looked. They probably wont make another one though.
    The PS3 out sold the Wii and the 360…congrats Sony! but for how long? And who in the hell is buying all those DS’s? I dont know a single person that owns one, lol.

  7. #7 by King32 on October 20th, 2009

    Everybody is buyind DS’s, even my fiance has one. She’s playing Kingdom Hearts and it rocx. I hope they make another Folklore because it really is a good game. Once again good job Sony ;)

  8. #8 by fleakitten on October 20th, 2009 [ 26489 Points ]

    The guys behind Folklore say they won’t make another. They’ve moved on to another game being published by Nacmo.

  9. #9 by JimmyMagnum on October 20th, 2009 [ 83111 Points ]

    Namco?! Well, that’s going to be a 360 exclusive! lol

    anyway, its about time! I hope Sony can keep the momentum going throughout the holiday season. They really need it and truly deserve it!
