Worldwide Hardware YTD: 1: 3DS - 1,451,689 2: PS3 - 1,163,048 3: X360 - 767,581 4: WiiU - 345,292 5: Wii - 297,996 6: PSP - 269,514 7: PSV - 238,881 8: DS - 180,453
I really shouldn't care about numbers especially numbers that aren't 100% accurate and even more so cause we are at the end of a generation but the ps3 is still chugging over a 1 million units in 2 months.
Sony/PS3 is selling pretty strong, at the end of its cycle. They have just caught up to XBOX and maybe taken them over .. at the end of their cycles. So well done. Let the battle begin between the new consoles already!!
PS3 still has another 3 or so years under its belt and will still have games developed for it as well as the PS4 for a little longer. Microsoft will most likely kick 360 to the curb when the 720 is released.
@Omni-Tool When the next gen begins are we still gonna talk about PS3 vs XBOX360? I haven't heard a comparison between PS2 vs XBOX after 3 and 360 was released. PS2 was supported yes, but we as gamers didnt give a toss about them. It'll happen this new gen too.
Actually ps3 has sold 1,000,000 and a half more consoles than 360 xbox worldwide and that is not counting all the red ring xboxs 360 im on my third xbox 360 my first 1 xbox 360 red ringed me my 2 the disk drive broke i barely played it xbox 360 quality is a nightmare im still on my first ps3
@Charted There was no comparison between PS2/Xbox, PS2 completely dominated and crushed the Xbox.
The only good news here its that the PSP its outselling the vita, go PSP go.
@Dylila This is what fanboy is. See like/dislike ratio. Majority of this site are sony fanboys. That's a fact.
Dont you think theres a reason why so many people love PS3? Its because its so damn good. cant wait for the PS4
When I first join n4g if you were a ps3 fan you were distroyed. N4G was all about the 360 and how shitty the ps3 was... that was in 2007. Times have changed , the shoe is on the other foot ... sorry about your luck nintendoland.
You're not exactly in a position to talk. I don't care what the ratios are, that doesn't excuse being a fanboy, even a minority one.
@Karpetburnz Its so good that i will have a PS4 tattoo tomorrow
I will say, 3ds deserves its rank. God damn, I love that system.
lol the core gamer system is #2 in the world!! My faith in humanity +300. The world want's the last of us not yoga.
Nothing to see here: Nintendo and Sony selling all the hardware as usual. :)
Nice to see Vita sales picking up a bit.
PS3 - 1,163,048 3: X360 - 767,581 wow
not so much wow as if you look at the years they have been roughly 400k between each other. 2010 was closer to 500k between them but the other years was roughly 400k or less. with the ps4 announcement comes the risk that sales will decline in preparation of those who will hold off and wait. Or it could be that sony will cut the price to spur sales in light of the recent announcement. In either case we can see that there are 'possibly' more people letting go of the one console stigma and buying the other to have in addition to their initial system. It can go with 360 only fans are starting to buy PS3 and PS3 only fans are starting to buy 360. Both have their pro and con but both are worth having.
Coincide with the Last of Us dropping the following Tuesday. Makes sense. With GOW, TLOU, Beyond and perhaps GT6 still set to release on PS3 (as well as Destiny and Diablo 3), it's clear to me Sony intends an dual platform approach.
i dont care about 360 because i Dont like Halo/Gears/FMS/AW or FABLE
People who initially will buy a PS4 have had a PS3 for several years, it wont affect the sales of PS3 that much to be honest!
Not that "wow" But sony is doing very Well, huh.. I think it´s going to outsell even PS4 when it will be released
You won't be saying that after E3.
that is ever gamers favorite line I think, but very rarely is anything different after E3 imho. I think Vita will take off once the PS4 lands but that is just me & a thought which in the real world means nothing.
I agree with him and I'm a Vita fanboy. It should be number 1. Look how the Gameboy started it all and then look at the Vita. It's a fing epic godsend of a portable system, but most gamers are too cheap to own it. 3DS ain't got nothing but sales on it. If Nintendo made the Vita I would be up their ass too.
So the 3DS doesn't have good games? At least you admit to being a Vita/Sony fanboy. Doesn't make the implication any less stupid though.
It's not about being cheap, have you forgotten we are in a serious recession? Also I think peoples interests are on the next gen consoles, I know I would rather save up for a PS4 than a Vita at this point in time.
Poor WiiU !!
Good numbers for 3DS/PS3.
Hell yah , Go PS3! Sony is definitely dominating now with no end in sight. Once the PS4 hits I don't see what could stop the Playstation brand.
if VG has PS3 ahead by 400,000 it has to be closer to 800,000 in real life. Not that I care, I play games not sales I just know how VGC is with fudging PS3 #'s & bloating 360 #'s.
Lol Nintendo, MS deserve the shit they are getting, going casual will cost them dearly next gen.
well you be fair on the other end the 3DS is outselling everything else but no first or third party games has came out for the wii u since launch
