Keighley Analyzes Console Wars


Posted May 24, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Videogame professional Geoff Keighley dug deep into the hard numbers of the console wars on News Week's Level Up blog and did some analysis.

"The sales [of PlayStation 3s] need to pick up, pronto--especially if Sony wants to keep third party interest. Already third party executives are telling me that if PS3 sales stay below 100k for 3 consecutive months, PS3 SKUs may start disappearing from release lists and in turn create a wealth of de-facto exclusives for the Xbox 360," Geoff told News Week's N'Gai Croal.

But all is not hopeless, according to Keighley:

"Let's hope Sony delivers a blowout E3 with playable Metal Gear Solid 4, an impressive Killzone demo, and lots more of LittleBigPlanet. After playing LittleBig at Gamer's Day I am now more convinced than ever that it may be Sony's secret weapon this holiday season. (And potentially even a Best of Show contender for our Game Critics Awards at E3.)"
