Xbox 360 Sold 114,000 Units In May 2013 Making It Top Selling Console For 29 Months In A Row

Microsoft has recently announced the amount of Xbox 360 Units sold in the month of May 2013. (Microsoft, Xbox 360)

Prcko  +   893d ago
That figure is well below the 270,000 Xbox 360 units Microsoft sold during May 2012.

i know right, but i think that they hope it increases since they released a new design for the 360.
RiPPn  +   893d ago
Not sure if it will help since there isn't a whole lot of difference to the old model and no price drop.
xtremexx  +   893d ago
the no price drop part is kinda stupid. even a slight price drop would be good.
Why o why  +   893d ago
That number will be increasing. . . mattrick told a bag of people to grab one if they dont have net like whats needed remember

what do you want from the play station crowd. even if people are not buying a xbox1 they still piss and moan like it will effect them even tho it wont since they are already getting a ps4.

Who cares, they are still selling and with the xbone announcement I would say that's still a good job.
eagle21  +   893d ago
This is for May 2013. Not June 2013.
s8anicslayer  +   893d ago
So how did the PS3 overtake the lead in overall sales even with Microsoft having a whole year of being the only console of current gen being out? That is not an accurate statement to make on their part.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   893d ago
Unfortunately, That'll probably be different come next gen. PS4 will be on top in the U.S.
aceitman  +   893d ago
in America but yet it sold 360,000 world wide and sony sold 540,000 world wide making sony the top selling console world wide for 29 months in a row. y is ms trying to act like its at the top .u have to look at the whole picture not just a corner of it.
Belking  +   893d ago
Still King of the U.S.
HammadTheBeast  +   893d ago
Ah, but what a small kingdom. There's a whole world out there dominated by a sleek black box.

And looks like the PS4 seige has begun.
Belking  +   893d ago
yep, and that sleek black box is xbox-360. U.S. is the biggest and most important market or else E-3 would be elsewhere.
mediate-this  +   893d ago
yeah but they are almost neck n neck, just one is a global success and the other a north American success, great that they are both doing good
Tei777  +   893d ago

Worldwide the PS3 continues to outsells the 360 on a weekly basis, by about 40k. Xbox's lead in the US (which is about 10k now) means very little in the greater scheme of things. Sony is winning where sales are concerned.

Also it will help me to feel better knowing that people like u wont be playing in the same comunity as me. I like to think i play with people that can think.

Ok, 29 months in a row topping US and you say lead is down to 10,000 units? Is this proof all Sony users spew total crap everytime? Just be honest, and be glad there is competition in console market...
HammadTheBeast  +   893d ago
Now this is actually swayed in your favour because VGChartz under tracks PS3's they've even admitted it, but here:

Unless I'm mistaken.... WHOA PS3 > 360.

And competition means nothing. One of gamings best eras was PS2 one.

Any other things you want to argue?
Tei777  +   892d ago

I meant Xbox 360's lead on a weekly basis is about 10k in the US, which isn't that significant.
RiPPn  +   893d ago
Come November it'll have been fun while it lasted.
Belking  +   893d ago
I know. My 360 will be sitting aside a brand new

justastranger10  +   893d ago
Just preordered my Xbox One. Gonna have fun with Twitchtv and live broadcasting. Dead Rising 3. Hell yeah!
HammadTheBeast  +   893d ago
Not really. And no one gives an **** about Xbox outside of US. Come on, convert. Everyone else in the US is.
gamertk421  +   893d ago
US is the important one. 'Murrica!
nosferatuzodd  +   893d ago
sony sold 125,65 so how come they are the top selling i dont get it and 3ds is at 130,359
nintendo 130,359
sony 125,658
xbox 114,ooo

i guess third is the new first
testerg35  +   893d ago
LOL.. you use vgcharts numbers. Seriously?
HammadTheBeast  +   893d ago
Yeah, VGCHARTZ severely under tracks PS3 sales, use something else lol.
WeAreLegion  +   893d ago
Who cares what market is most important?!? THE market is the world.
CernaML  +   893d ago
Youre totally right! Thats also why gamescom and TGS are only in the US right?

Lol Good lord, you are dumb.
hakesterman  +   893d ago
Yeah those are U.S. Sales numbers, in World wide sales they are actually trailing by over a million and a half consoles. In the end the PS3 Will totally destroy the Xbox360 in sales.
Belking  +   893d ago
They aren't trailing. The xbox is still ahead because sony hasn't announced anything about them passing xbox360.
hakesterman  +   888d ago
Yes they Have, Sony is 1.2 Million Units ahead of Xbox360 as of may 2013.
GreenRanger  +   893d ago
Ah! Now there's a fine console.

It's sitting right next to my PS3 on my desk, but unlike my PS3, it won't ever get to see it's successor in my home.
xtremexx  +   893d ago
Donnieboi  +   893d ago
And unlike the PS3, the 360 doesn't ave any exclusives this year that are worth a damn. Also, the 360 hasn't had many exclusives at all for years. Why should I think things will change with the new Cable Box One? Also, yeah they had a lot of core games at E3, but most were 3rd party (paid to be displayed at MS's e3 conference) while Ryse was a QTE fest because the dev wants the game to be "easily accessible" -_- (blending casual experience under the guise of being a hardcore game).

I don't trust MS to reverse it's policies on making exclusive FIRST party games. Also, the box itself is such a mess as it is, so I'll have to pass on 720 too Told all my friends on Xbox Live to friend me on facebook, because I won't ever pay for Xbox Live ever again. Told them they can find me on PS3 and Ps4.

I pre-ordered the xbone but im having thoughts of cancelling it, but im a gamer so I gotta get both.

That's how we do it. Can't wait for the Xbox one.. Oh no disagrees! Boohoo :-p
HammadTheBeast  +   893d ago
Only in US. And as it stands now, you're better off keeping that 360. At least you own what you pay for.
Transporter47  +   893d ago
You're one of the tools that is buying a more expensive product for less :-P. Also sorry that i don't like to support an Anti-Consumer product but what do you care, lets just hope you never lose internet ;)

@talk bad about MS I think they have that cover for themselves lol.

Your paid buy Microsoft to call the Sony fanbase shills.
gamertk421  +   893d ago
@hdshatter. Does your name refer to someone who in the past has defecated in high def?
S2Killinit  +   893d ago
I'm guessing this is another PR trick? Yes microsoft? Is this only the U.S? Oh microsoft how low can you go? 29 months straight? Where? We know PS3 is now comfortably ahead of 360 in sales, so whats the statistical trick your pulling now?
testerg35  +   893d ago
Umm.. if you read the article you would realize that they are responding to NPD numbers, which by the way, are US numbers. But I'm sure you knew that and I'm sure you knew that MS does dominate in the US.
S2Killinit  +   893d ago
actually that's exactly what I mean.(and the reason why I don't have to read it) This title is, by all means, an attempt to mislead people. Why do they have to resort to this? They can easily say "29 months straight in the U.S." and even that would be hiding the fact that they are selling less than their competition each and every month on a global scale. But at least it wouldn't be a dishonest attempt to misguide people who don't read the article.
#5.1.1 (Edited 893d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(2) | Report
testerg35  +   893d ago
Exactly who is "they"? By your tone you are referring to MS. MS didn't make that statement. The website did. Again, it would help if you actually read the article.

PerryCaravello  +   893d ago
Meanwhile, PS3 remained the #1 selling console worldwide.

Great article lol... good luck holding onto that US market, the strategy is clearly solidifying a strong 2nd place finish.
alb1899  +   893d ago
XBOX brand grow a lot with the 360 hope it continues with the X1.
Akuma2K  +   893d ago
When the PS4 launch it's going to claim the US market from the Xbox360 and Xbox Done and that will be all she wrote.

mochachino  +   893d ago
In the US but worldwide PS3 has been outselling 360 every month for a while and has surpassed it in total sales.

I never thought it would happen but Sony came back and took second place this gen. I'd pretty much call PS3 and 360 tied for second or first among the HD consoles.
WeAreLegion  +   893d ago
Please write "US" in the title. This is misleading. The PS3 is spanking the 360.
gamertk421  +   893d ago
Once again, the largest and most important region.
darren_poolies  +   893d ago
The world is more important than the US. Peoples stupidity amazes me.
gamertk421  +   893d ago
Says the person who doesn't understand the use of apostrophes.
S2Killinit  +   893d ago
"most important" region. How so? If you are talking strictly numbers, what do you consider a region? Is a console sold in one region more important than a console sold elsewhere?
gamertk421  +   893d ago
Yes, the most important region is where I live, North America, and specifically the US. Local trends have a larger impact than globally in an individual's gaming world.
mirumu  +   893d ago
It's missing "excluding handhelds" too because it seems in the official NPD numbers the 3DS outsold the 360.
WeAreLegion  +   893d ago
I would have added that, too, but it says "console". :) The 3DS is doing SO well!
mirumu  +   893d ago
@WeAreLegion Joystick uses the word "console" to describe the 3DS, it's even in their headline. Most other sites reporting on the May sales numbers are doing the same too.
testerg35  +   893d ago
Man.. for you people that are new to here and are Sony fans. NPD is for US numbers. So MS is responding to US numbers. Get it? And yes 3DS outsold it, but its not considered a console.

And for the person quoting vgchartz. Please read up on that site. Do ever wonder why none of the manufacturers ever respond to vgchartz numbers?

what i find funny is..sonyboys say THE WORLD is more important than the U.S...but i dont see companies building games for THE WORLD...their building their games for the U.S MARKET...not the aussie market...not the african market..but the US MARKET....because thats where THE MONEY IS...if you think sony would rather rule anywhere else other than the U.S your crazy...they would love to rule this market again..
S2Killinit  +   893d ago
you seem to be implying that it doesn't matter if Playstation outsold the 360. The U.S. market is the single largest united market, however the "world" even excluding the U.S. is still a larger market with more profit than the United States alone. Also, I think a lot of people are arguing that what does it matter if Microsoft sold more to the U.S. (and by not much of a margin mind you) when overall they sold less consoles, You know, "World-wide".
ThaBlackBaron  +   893d ago
WOW these is terrible numbers....
badboy776  +   893d ago
PS3 sold more worldwide! Also once Sony announces a PS3 Price Drop it's a rap!
