Edit 2 - Disagrees! ??? ^ - ^

Microsoft is destroying sales-wise. Credit goes to the good games they've been pumping out lately like Halo 4.

Sony: start preparing for fall 2013 so you don't look like a chump 2 yrs in a row!

"only in America" is the saying, right?

darx1241d ago

Yes that is the saying. So what's your point?

PeZuS1241d ago

That Sony doesn't need to come out on top in USA to be number 1 worldwide...

Dlacy13g1241d ago (Edited 1241d ago )

@PeZuS .... umm... Sony wont be number 1 regardless of where they finish compared to MS....Nintendo says hello.

"It's worth noting, however, that what the NPD Group considers "November" is actually October 28 through November 24, which means that sales from the Sunday and Monday following Black Friday did not contribute."

"As has become the routine, Microsoft holds top honors as far as console sales are concerned, with consumers purchasing 1.26 million Xbox 360s over the course of November and 750,000 during Black Friday week alone."

That is some very strong sales and likely beat last years ridiculous sales numbers.

Congrats MS! Now, hurry and release the next Xbox.

PeZuS1241d ago

@Dlacy: I mean monthly/weekly/yearly sales from now on WW. Wii has all but dropped off the map.

@PeZuS

"I mean sales from now on worldwide."

That is some hardcore grasping of straws. Wow.

This generation will go down in history as the emergence of the Xbox 360, the domination of the casual Nintendo Wii, and the collapse of the Playstation brand.

Not saying the PS3 isn't a success. But when compared to the PS2...well...just take a look a Sony's current financial situation.

@Alderney:

The looser from last generation is the only ones that gained from this generation. Sony had everything to loose and they lost their shirt.

Arguably Nintendo gained the most, not from just more console sold, but also mind share. Nintendo's brand is very strong right now, and so is MS.

Sony's glory days are long over, so we gotta wait until next generation when the reset button is hit. Just this time, the other brands is stronger than ever.

I'm hoping for a 3-way tie with intense competition. That is how we got some really awesome products like Wii motion controls and then Kinect.

I've been saying it since E3, MS set the 360 up for a potential great holiday season.

They didn't break records this year, as you had the Wii-U launch and the PS3 is still going to have it's success as well, but when you launched 7 years ago it is definately huge that you remain on top in your biggest region.

After E3 they bashed Micrsoft for leading with Halo 4 and finishing with Black Ops 2.

Fast forward and they are thanking those two titles for helping them grab 1 billion plus sales in a month.

But let's face it, it's time for the new console, it would be suicide for them to not move onto the 720 next year.

I hope so but Microsoft is milking it for all its worth. Don't blame them since they keep selling and making money.

EVILDEAD3601241d ago

I think they got it right in terms of how many years they have gone this gen with the 360.

But if they wait another year, I would definately agree with you on the milking thing

Why are all the Sony fanboys disagreeing with you?

As a PS3 lover myself, I gotta give credit where it's due. MS is doing a great job promoting the Xbox. Sony should take notes.

B-radical1241d ago

Dont worry about the ps3 fan boys ahah xbox has won this war next year when the new consoles roll in it may be different.....guess we can say wii has ultimately won sales wise tho aha

PeZuS1240d ago

Grasping at straws? Are you even aware of WW yearly sales of the consoles? If not, you'd better check them out. Might come as a surprise to you.
