maybe it's because of the RROD! *joking*
PS2 was also much more popular than the original xbox as well.
i like PS2 a lot more than xbox because it has tons of rpg back then.
PS3 also has a lot of rpg as well, but most of them are only in Japan. :S
360 can only survive well in America, sadly. i have both PS3 and 360.
i still preferred ps3 more over the 360 though. just my preference. but
yeah, i kind of saw it coming for the 360 in Japan. they just dont like
the xbox much; it's all about playstation over there.
EDIT: customers loyalty is KEY.
