The most important figure of them all and it's looking good for the 3DS, PS3 and 360 respectively.

Its wierd with PS3 sales versus 360. The 360 has more collectively but loses out in sales increase per annum, week and month. Cant tell which console is more successful right now...
GribbleGrunger  +   628d ago
Well, it's not that difficult actually. The 360 tends to sell better in November - December, while the PS3 tends to sell better for the rest of the year. So the 360 gathers a 500,000 to 800,000 lead over Christmas and the PS3 pulls that lead back by 1 million to 1.5 million for the rest of the year.

I have to give kudos to M$.... they have done everything possible to keep that lead ahead of $ony..... They spent so much money marketing Kinect and the last 2 summers, they give away a X360 for free for every PC purchase..... then of course that does not get mention when they release sales numbers.

You give Kudos to Microsoft for keeping the lead but not Sony for reducing the lead? Microsoft's lead currently stands at 1.6 million and at one point it was 8 million, even though as you say, they give 360s away with PC purchases. Even someone with a neutral perspective on sales would know which company deserves kudos here. Just to give this context: if the PS3 had released alongside the 360, they would be currently 4 million ahead... and if they could have afforded to release at the same price, who knows what that lead would have been.

Microsoft have done an extraordinary job of sustaining sales, that's for sure, but considering the price of the PS3, releasing a year later (16 months in Europe) and the less than helpful press, I'd say what Sony have achieved is miraculous.

Take a step further back and then compare how MS and Sony have done between this gen and previous gen before you start referring to anything as miraculous.

You may not have realized but I was just saying how M$ had to give consoles away and spend more on marketing than on development of kinect.....

At the end of the day, Sony has done more than anyone this gen.... and their focus has been us gamer and not who's leading sales.....

And it shows with how many awesome games and exclusives we have seen on the PS3.

Sony was giving away PS3s with Bravia TVs as well over the past couple of years.

Solid start for ACL for Vita but what happened to NFS on Vita which seemed to review as the better game?

Need for speed doesn't have as much pull as it once did. Assassin's Creed does.

Pfft! Vgchartz? Can they be trusted?

3DS is beasting, and how can it not be with all these awesome games coming out left and right? I somehow missed the release of Code of Princess.
