There are a number of reasons for the sluggish software sales on PS3. Most obviously, the low system install base will keep PS3 sales from ever reaching the highs that many Wii and Xbox 360 titles can produce. However, we've said it time and time again: 2008 is looking to be a banner year for Sony's black box, and we think things are going to look up. If PS3 can push some strong bestsellers this year (we think they will), publishers and developers are very likely to strongly reconsider how much effort goes into PS3 development. If not, then there's a serious problem.
Check out key PS3-exclusive bestsellers, after the cut.
