Looks like Microsoft have a good chance of beating Sony this year for the first time in 4 years!

(Cause of Halo... of course)

The 360 outsold the PS3 last year too.

MS Dominating, its not even about it being close, its about MS being written off from the get go and look at them now.

This all from a company and system people said never had a chance of competing with SONY, sound familiar?

Go back to 1995 when people wrote SONY off as never going to compete with SEGA or NINTENDO, they wrong then as well.

This board spends to much time talking about sales in this region or that region and its about is the system stable, profitable and healthy...Xbox and SONY doing just fine.

Now Nintendo...lets not go there.

Yeah having the best selling console this gen must have been hard on them. That or their current portable at almost 20 million and not even out a year yet.

Sony is living off of scraps and is bleeding money but they are doing just fine however the market leader is in trouble because their sales are too good... fanboy logic.

BTW MS is only 2 million ahead of Sony and 30 million behind the Wii. Nobody would call that "domination" except someone who doesnt understand what domination means.

Pro Tip: Dominating is not done from second place

sales dosnt mean incomes.....ps3 is jsut some millions of console behind the x360 but sony start to take money from the consol just this year..while MS is enjoyining money from 5 years ors omething like this......plus u need to add the kinect sales...(that sold like CRAZY)...

theres nothign that sony did right this gen with their hw..starting from tvs....passing trought home console...ending to the handheld.....Sony is losing money and market...in every segment they touch......and if u dont see it...well...ppl like u dont help sony

sorry for my english

vishant101, can you provide the math to back that up?
adorie  +   594d ago
how many billions have they spent to get to this point?

That's a legitimate question.
vishant101  +   594d ago
a small fraction of what they stand to make from xbox live.

Didn't Sony admit they were in third place? "I'm just saying from that Kotaku interview.

If that saying anything at all from Kotaku.

Wait it says sony went from a 24.8% marketshare in 2009 all the way up to a 44.0% in 2012.

It also says PSP sold 94,931,111. Is that true?
Captain Tuttle  +   593d ago
It's nonsense. Typical VGChartz. It also says that the PSP has 55.6% Market Share as opposed to the DS which "only" has 44.4%.
Edit: That's apparently 2012 only. Who knows. My point below still stands.

I thought that they may have gotten better but apparently not. Site is a joke.
