niall773918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

can the 360 really still have shortages?

or could all the recent good PS3 news have finally won the USA over?

or could VGchartz be wrong... again (for the hole of january for example)

who knows, like always we should wait for this months NPD before we junp the gun

fenderputty3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

MS has claimed shortages through this month as well. I don't really know what to believe to be honest. Only time will tell though ... if in two or three more months the PS3 is still outselling the 360 then, I would say we have a trend and not a shortage blip.

Still ... it's nice to see Sony sell more consoles. When taking into consideration that the 360 has twice the user base in America, the software ratio is almost even as well. Infact, DMC4 has sold better on a percentage basis on the PS3 then on the 360.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

this is OLD School Sony Styles.

Play B3yond.

360 will NEVER outsell it again.


cmrbe3918d ago

is a bad excuse. The x360 is not hard to manufacture and MS have been producing x360 for more than two years already. If indeed it is shortgaes. Its their fault and i expect the x360 out outsell the PS3 if there is a shortage because of high demand which they are claiming. MS is putting a spin on numbers. Convinently for them their shortage is suppose to finish by when GTA4 is launch which they are hopeing that will lift the x360 numbers pass the PS3.

Yes i am sure the Blu victory and other good news for PS3 is helping PS3 sales in NA.

Yes we can assume that the PS3 numbers are under reported again and we should wait for NPD for more accurate NA numbers.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3918d ago

couldn`t have said it better.

Shortages......... please!

after 2 years + off producing system there is NO shortages.

lets see if theres SHORTAGES at GTAIV time.

deeznuts3918d ago

I'm still waiting on a decent explanation on how the 360 sold less this year than last, but there are shortages. Could it be for warranty purposes?

Time Lord3918d ago

Check out Wii's numbers! it would take miracle for PS3 or any other console to outsell it this gen.

marinelife93918d ago

And all of this is without.

Metal Gear Solid
Little B Planet
Final Fant
Gran Turismo

This is going to get ugly by the end of the year. 360 sales declined last year and starting to show another decline this year. Where as PS3 sales are getting stronger.

The more HDTV's that are sold the more PS3's will be sold.

Jeanne3918d ago

"could VGchartz be wrong"

After they tried to claim 10.5 million sold for the 360 for the end of 2006 when the real numbers were only around 8 million.

After they were caught multiple times in various European countries intentionally low balling PS3 numbers and padding 360 numbers.

And after they were caught in January making up numbers that once again inflated the 360 and undercounted the PS3. is just a scam site run by a teenage kid who is a 360 fan.

cmrbe3918d ago

me to. It could be MS are using most of the units they have to replace faulty consoles knowing that this PROD is a very big problem for them or as some are saying. MS might be repacking x360's with GTA4.

Martini3918d ago

360 software outsels ps3,PS2 and PSP combined.

NO_PUDding3918d ago

If there is a shortage why is there a gain (percentage) in sales from last week 360's?

I think the shortage announcement by Microsoft is to save their asses from the stockholders they ahve been dealing with. I woudl say deceiving, but that is their job, and every othr company out there. So no need to gives some false propaganda.

I don't know if xbox360 shortages are really the main cause of the ps3 beating the xbox360, but sony's ps3 has really improved alot.

HarryEtTubMan3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )


Guys seriously... the PS3 is winning in the U.S. now also hahahahahahahhahahah....wait until the MGS4 bundle drops in a couple of months....but wait no one buys Metal Gear Solid(or Playstation) in the U.S. right?? ;P Keep dreaming DELUSIONAL BOTS. Playstation is still the number one gaming brand in the world.(and always will be)

This only the beginning of the PS3's 2nd year. The PS3's sales are picking up WEEKLY and its selling so well Sony isn't even gonna drop the price until the end of this year. The 360 has already lost. GUARANTEED FACT BOTS.

Imagine a 250$ Blu Ray playing PS3 with a TON of awesome games and Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Warhawk 2, Metal Gear Online, Call of Duty 5, LBP and millions of gamers meeting and gaming through Playstaiton Home.

PS3 FTW!!!

Who wants to make a bet that the Xbox 360 is already in the beginning stages of FLOPPING???(A.K.A only selling around 45 million this Generation) PS3 is going to win.

LMAOOOOOOOOOO ITS NOT SHORTAGES I HAVE SEEN XBOX 360'S(all 3 SKU's) all over Tampa Florida. There is no incentive to by a RROD, pay for online console with only Unreal Engine, Gloomy space shooters.

MGS4 WILL PWN ALL. Count on it.

texism3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

Dude, 360 is not getting "pwned". Yes, 360 is getting beat, but not by much. Not even by up to 10K.

The Wii is the one pwning all. The 360 and PS3 are almost neck and neck.
You just sound like a very horrible breed of brainwashed fanboys.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3918d ago

for 360 being on it`s 3rd year and PS3 being on it`s 2nd year.

the 360 is getting "PWNED"(that`s the first time i ever said that)

if you just look at these numbers, NO.

the BIG picture, HARD.

just my 2 cents.

texism3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

When something gets released, it sells more when it is younger. As it gets into the market, it will reach a peak, then decrease to saturation point. At saturation point, it will start to sell low but steady rate. Being a fan is cool and all, but put that aside and listen to reason.

360 is an older console, and it is closer to saturation point than PS3. Some people (aka rabid fanboys) simply aren't smart enough to realize that.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

17-20 million is NOT the saturation point.

PS2 sold 120 million.

it`s cool being a fan and all, but use your brain.

$199 price point is when things like this sell.


cmrbe3918d ago

the problem with that logic is the fact that only about 33% of the gaming market in NA from last gen is accounted for. Saturation?. No its far from it. It won't happen in another 2-4 years time. The prices for these consoles still haven't hit mass consumer price which i believe is $199 USD.

caffman3917d ago

I'm going to Florida for halloween and I'm going to bump into people like that at busch gardens? Bugger. Guess I'll have to take my anti-troll spray in my hand luggage

360 fans flooding these threads before.

it really is funny how things change, so quickly.

texism3918d ago

They are just busy playing their games.

Software sales confirm it. Have fun trolling!

green3918d ago

how old are you?because i fail to understand what on earth your problem is?

MaximusPrime3918d ago

welldone texium. you earned yourself 2 days ban from Gamer Zone.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3918d ago (Edited 3918d ago )

i gave $1500+ to MSFT for ONE YEAR of AVERAGE gaming.

that`s my problem.

i love video games, i HATE getting ripped off.

if my 360 didn`t break(x2) i`d still have one.

and i`d still say.

3.Failure rates.
4.How much is coming out for it`s 3rd year



well they must NOT have been playing, ME,BioS,H3 cause when those came out they were all HERE.

bababrooks3918d ago

anego, i think you spin! get your name on the leaderboard and then i may listen to what you say.your comment about loving games is not true after reading the history of your posts, you seem to be a fan boy as per 78 percent of the n4g posters............are you?
