proud of the Wii U it is doing well if you do not compare it to the Wii, hopefully next 360 n ps4 can do the same

These consoles are still selling well. Xbox360 is very close to overtaking the wii in the US, which is mighty impressive. Also not surprised with Halo 4 and COD place in that list.

3ds is still selling well too. Hopefully they can get those wii-u numbers up in the coming months.

it is less then 200,000 away from the Vita, wow I did not know it was selling that bad

What are you talking about the wiiu ? Typical , sales go down after the initial launch rush is over. And will go back up when games like Monster Hunter , Rayman Legends , Pikmin 3 and Lego city, Wii fit U arrive to name a few. Bayonetta 2 will be Huge for wiiu too....

As long as the wiiu can do about 8-12M by December 2013 , it's a success. And from there with price drops and the arrival of Smash bros , Zelda , Mario etc , it could go on to do HUGE things.

Dunno Why the vita is doing so bad globably. Nobody knows. The only reason I can think is that there is not enough BIG name titles (not talking about game quality) Like Monster Hunter , Resi , Kingdom Hearts .

Hopefully the vita will pick up soon.

Pretty much everything took a 50% drop after
Christmas. I figured the sales would still be up because of gift cards, cash and what nots from people.

xbox still pimping

America loves there Xbox 360. If Sony was made In USA and Xbox was made in Japan I bet the sales on Sony would beat Microsoft.
Please add bubbles thank u.

Knight_Crawler  +   1005d ago

Original Xbox was HECHO EN MEXICO... Also loved the way it smelled. Almost like a new car's dash. Used to Armor-all mine.

MS has marketed well in US and UK.

That explain why ps2 massively outsold the OG Xbox in the us....
BanBrother  +   1005d ago

Don't even try, you can't win with these kids.

Xbox 360 sells well in US = patriotism.
PS3 sells well in Japan = well done, they made the right choice.

Love when people twist information to suit them, makes them look like complete idiots to semi-rational thinking people. As long as the drones 'agree' though right?

Anyway, all consoles are doing quite well given the economy of the world these last few years. I will most likely fork out day 1 for a next-gen console, whichever releases first most likely.

All these replies, patriotism is as dogmatic a religion, or fanboyism.

Why do you ask everyone to give you bubbles? You have to earn them.
Riderz1337  +   1005d ago
Damn PS3 and Xbox 360 much closer than I expected.
moodgamer  +   1005d ago
139,705 people, bought a used Kinect =)
Hingle_Mcringleberry  +   1005d ago
I dare you or anyone else to try make less sense than that. Double dare you.
moodgamer  +   1004d ago
Im sorry if you didnt get it. If you look at the chart, the videogame Kinect Aventures, that comes bundle with a Kinect, sold 139.705 units. Thats why a make that comment. Just made a joke. Calm the hell down.
BanBrother  +   1005d ago
I actually bought one after Christmas. It irritates me to no end, but I only bought it so my little sister would enjoy it. She loves fruit ninja, as do I as it works even better than the ios one. I tried it on my Motorola Xoom 2, and the kinect version blitzes it.

There are some really cool games on Kinect. I myself don't enjoy them, but I feel very happy when the kids are having a blast. I don't think there will be a good 'hardcore' game for it, but I will continue to fork out money for it (already over $400, just as a present to a 5 year old girl) , just to see my little angel happy.

I have one too and I use it quite a bit whenever im maneuvering around the dashboard. It really comes in handy sometimes. I love how you can just use your voice to go and find anything you want. My kid loves it though so i bought him one for his xbox too. Great technology and so versatile.

wii u is starting to lose momentum.. not even half the sales as ps3/360.. they need some good exclusives really soon
