PS3 market share on top for November

ps3November proved to be a successful month for the Sony Playstation 3 as it won the market share from Wii and the Xbox 360. The Playstation 3 controlled 21 percent of the market share, a 9 percent jump from the month of October.

According to the NPD Group, PS3 sales quadrupled in the month of November. Shipments for all three systems doubled as sales rose because of after Thanksgiving sales and promotions.

Is the PS3 starting to gain a little momentum? With the new price cut to $399 that was introduced last month for the 40GB model, along with great software such as Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, is the PS3 is finally heading in the right direction?

Unfortunately it doesn’t have many exclusives up its sleeve other than MGS4, Final Fantasy XIII and Killzone 2. It has been a little over a year now since the PS3 came out and its baby years are over. (This is the time where you really need to make yourself shine as a competent console compared to your competition, PS3.)

Once Grand Theft Auto 4 hits shelves, even though it is not an exclusive, a very large majority of the PS3 community will be getting their hands on it, no doubt boosting sales of the PS3.

But what will be a real sales booster will be Metal Gear Solid 4 if it manages to stay an exclusive upon release. It’s a shame we won’t be seeing either Killzone 2 or Final Fantasy XIII anytime in the near future however, Final Fantasy XIII being a definite system seller for me.

I think the PS3 is finally showing its true capabilities with up and coming games, but the question arises. If you already have a Xbox360 and over 75% of the games come out for both systems, is there really a point of getting a PS3?
