donniebaseball23 writes "Xbox 360 has been having an incredible year so far in 2011, but on a global scale Sony's PS3 is still gaining ground. In fact, this year PS3 has outpaced Xbox 360 by 10% worldwide, analysts have pointed out. While the Wii has clearly won the race for this console generation, the battle for second place is neck and neck, and PS3 has a good shot of overtaking Xbox 360. 'As for second place, as far as the hardcore market is concerned, I'd say PS3 is a strong contender for that position,' commented M2 Research analyst Billy Pidgeon."

    Well, more like over 30 people. Counting Family and Friends who also would never buy a PS3 and have an X-box, or an X-box and a WII.

    come to think of it, I only know one person who has a PS3, and they don't use it for gaming. That use it occasionally to watch a blu-ray disc.

    So, coming from my Perspective, the only thing that doesn't make a PS-3 dead last, is that some folks were dumb enough to purchase one to watch Blu-ray discs.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
