    Well, there we have it. Didn’t take nearly as long as they predicted, did it? We weren’t supposed to get here until Christmas.

    How long before the PS3 overtakes the 360? 6 or 12 months?

    At current sales rates I think three years is probably about right. Two if they’re lucky.

    Well.. if a game of MGS4′s calibre gets released every month it would take about 30 months (based on a 200k difference per month).
