That figure is well below the 270,000 Xbox 360 units Microsoft sold during May 2012.
wow,what a drop :o

xtremexx1774d ago

i know right, but i think that they hope it increases since they released a new design for the 360.

RiPPn1774d ago

Not sure if it will help since there isn't a whole lot of difference to the old model and no price drop.

xtremexx1774d ago

the no price drop part is kinda stupid. even a slight price drop would be good.

Why o why1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

That number will be increasing. . . mattrick told a bag of people to grab one if they dont have net like whats needed remember

jcnba281774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

Trying to turn a positive into a negative are we?

sovietsoldier1773d ago

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.

eagle211774d ago

This is for May 2013. Not June 2013.

s8anicslayer1774d 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.

AngelicIceDiamond1773d ago

Unfortunately, That'll probably be different come next gen. PS4 will be on top in the U.S.

aceitman1773d 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.

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.

Belking1774d 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-this1774d 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

Tei7771774d ago (Edited 1774d 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.

saint_seya1774d ago

After reading your comment i just can think one think, please BUY A Xbox one, ure the kind of costumer(?) MS is aiming with their new console..

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.

YNWA961773d ago

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...

HammadTheBeast1773d 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?

Tei7771773d ago


I meant Xbox 360's lead on a weekly basis is about 10k in the US, which isn't that significant.

Come November it'll have been fun while it lasted.

Belking1774d ago

I know. My 360 will be sitting aside a brand new

NameRemoved00171774d ago


Just setup a camera and give the goverment a livestream to your house, its cheaper than spending $500.

justastranger101774d ago

Just preordered my Xbox One. Gonna have fun with Twitchtv and live broadcasting. Dead Rising 3. Hell yeah!

HammadTheBeast1774d ago

Not really. And no one gives an **** about Xbox outside of US. Come on, convert. Everyone else in the US is.

gamertk4211774d ago

US is the important one. 'Murrica!

nosferatuzodd1774d 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

testerg351774d ago

LOL.. you use vgcharts numbers. Seriously?

HammadTheBeast1773d ago

Yeah, VGCHARTZ severely under tracks PS3 sales, use something else lol.

WeAreLegion1774d ago

Who cares what market is most important?!? THE market is the world.

CernaML1774d ago

Youre totally right! Thats also why gamescom and TGS are only in the US right?

Lol Good lord, you are dumb.

hakesterman1773d 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.

Belking1773d ago

They aren't trailing. The xbox is still ahead because sony hasn't announced anything about them passing xbox360.

hakesterman1769d ago

Yes they Have, Sony is 1.2 Million Units ahead of Xbox360 as of may 2013.

GreenRanger1774d 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.

Donnieboi1774d ago (Edited 1774d 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.

mediate-this1774d ago

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

True_Samurai1774d ago

That's how we do it. Can't wait for the Xbox one.. Oh no disagrees! Boohoo :-p

HammadTheBeast1774d ago

Only in US. And as it stands now, you're better off keeping that 360. At least you own what you pay for.

Transporter471774d ago (Edited 1774d 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.

True_Samurai1774d ago

:-) you're a shill that gets paid to talk bad about MS
See what I did there?

NameRemoved00171774d ago

Your paid buy Microsoft to call the Sony fanbase shills.

gamertk4211774d ago

@hdshatter. Does your name refer to someone who in the past has defecated in high def?

S2Killinit1774d 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?

testerg351774d 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.

S2Killinit1773d ago (Edited 1773d 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.

testerg351773d ago (Edited 1773d 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.
