Boosted by the recent official price cut and bumper Easter sales period, Microsoft's console hits the milestone in the midst of a fierce scrap with Sony's rival PlayStation 3 in the key European territory.
just before the PS3 fanboys jump on this - Yeah but the PS3 has GTP, MGS, Haze, Killzone, littlebigplanet and Resistance2 No need to keep posting that list of games on every thread now.
Yeah but the PS3 has GTP, MGS, Haze, Killzone, littlebigplanet and Resistance2. :)
Yeah but the PS3 has GTP, MGS, Haze, Killzone, littlebigplanet and Resistance2 and HOME.
so 90% are found in a dump site?
Others take note of this . VGCRAP is again caught inflating x360 sales They have inflated x360 numbers by 150k in UK http://vgchartz.com
is infecting so fast it's has spreading over uk this is really bad
http://www.vgchartz.com/wee... at the same time they have downgraded PS3 sales. CHartrack reported that PS3 sold 1 m at the beginning of February. VGCRAP has PS3 hitting 1m late february http://www.gamesindustry.bi... so VGCRAP at the same time downgraded PS3 sales by 50 k in UK alone
So when we talk why can't we just upgrade PS3 sales and downgrade 360 sales. A month off is not that much. VGchartz is our only resource for sales besides these random articles that say "360 will hit 2 million".
Sony's console was launched in UK on March 23 2007- a year ago and was reported to pass the million mark first week of February 08 in UK ( http://www.joystiq.com/2008... 360 two and a half years now- is it correct to assume PS3 is selling at a faster pace?
well done to MS anyway. credit where its due and all that.
yes it is, its actually selling faster than the PS2 did.
aaaah how cute
Sold to customers or sold to stores? Is HD-DVD selling more?
Its data from Chart-track so it is sold to consumers.
Usually counts retailers, not actualy customers.
;-D You know why don't you??? Because there always DRUNK!!! ;-D (i.e next morning 'Bazza' wakes up next to 'Shazza' and says - DAM! thought i bought a PS3 yesterday!!!) ;-D
Don't worry BOTS!!I'm really gonna be getting Gears 2, Fable 2(maybe), Banjo, Left 4 dead and I need to see more.But I will probably get those.... and maybe even GTA ;D
You know you've got 1 bubble and nobody even sees your comment unless (like me) they expand your shyt comment? (which btw wasnt worth the effort)
And yes people buying 2nd RROD2 to replace first dosent count M$.
He's only got 1 bubble because Cry Babies like you(brothersimon)can't take it!!!
;-D You only got 3??? +I got 2 now but i'm not bothered!!! ;-D I'LL BE BACK with more soon!!! ;-D
All these people with PS3 are like .."Damn son, GTAIV is like 1 month away and Ive got NO games to play till release.. all i got is some shytty 2hour blu ray movies ive seen before MAN I SHOULD OF BOUGHT A 360!!"
So right you are .) Well im off to play Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
Is that all you got? Some racing game that gets boring after like 1 hour? Man, I could sit here and tell you a shyt load of games Ive got to play still :D
Well I'm off to play my demo game.
Already spent more time in GT5P then in your beloved GeoW. :)
just for fun i'll join in this one time... @brother simon... 'Man, I could sit here and tell you a shyt load of games Ive got to play still' meaning you haven't either bought them, or bothered to play them yet? what's keeping you? @Legion: 'What he means to say is....well I'm off to play my demo game.' hmm..not known for originality are you? must have taken you ages to come up with that one... if your still reading this...I'll assume that you can concentrate long enough to get my next point...you do know x360 just got a price cut...you can get a 360 bundle for £150, that's ds/psp range, what happened? x360 is now competeing with DS/psp...lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! at this rate...its going to compete with ps2 price point soon....
and at 150pounds sales decreased. price drops are suppose to help sales isn't it?? *shrug*
Dont worry your little pimply face off !! You little c0ck ring wearin god damn EMO !! We got plenty of games to keep us going for the rest of the year ! That's for sure And you say "MAN I SHOULD OF BOUGHT A 360!!" WHY !!! What For !!! Oh and wether your one of these 2 million SUCKA'S in the UK that Own a CrapBox !! Or your a SUCKA from somewere else One thing's for sure Your a first class King Sized SUCKA Xbots = SUCKA'S SimpleSimon = King Sized SUCKA
Ha Ha looser You Bought an Xbox Ha Ha
@tomat? Some new fruit or u misspelled tomato? Anyway, son, dont worry about brakes in your gt5demo, remember just bump off each car and you'll get ahead. @shine. Atleast they dropped the price after 2 years. Unlike ps3 where its price was dropped twice in a year, discontinued 3 skus, added 2 more and now finally they have a bd player that has 3 games. Anyway, i hope u all worked twice as hard to earn enough money to pick up your dreamstation just to sit and see 99% multiplatform doing better on 360. Lets not forget the newer ones which are buggy on ps3.
yeah... imagine all that and it's still outselling the 360. Amazing isn't it lol :)
@ Xboxftw: tomat is tomato in Swedish i consider "bumping into other cars" as cheating, and i play by the rules.
BroSimon: U can quit spamming my inbox, truly pathetic
."Damn son, GTAIV is like 1 month away and Ive got NO games to play till release.. all i got is some shytty 2hour blu ray movies ive seen before MAN I SHOULD OF BOUGHT A 360!!" What thats Sunny im to Busy playing COD4, UT3 and Some GT4 i got from EU store Care to explain lack of games eh? and yes i did Really Enjoy my Shiny Bluray copy of Enchanted i got to watch in Glorious 1080p yesterday.
i cant take any news serious today, not even this.
between the fanboy numbers and the companies wierd counting system, (seriously, just tell us what the sold to customer number is... be the bigger man for once sony, M$) I cant tell whats really true or if something is that big of an accomplishment or not. i just dont care about sales anymore, all i know is all the consoles are doing well.
Um, PS3 hit the 2mil mark ages ago in the UK, what's so good about this news? According to this list, it's not even 1 1/2 mil :S UK:Console Total Wii 2,532,938 X360 1,142,720 DS 6,092,083 PS3 2,133,343 PSP 2,471,925 PS2 9,832,013
where the _f_ did you get those numbers?
Okay, so it took the PS3 a year to get to one million, and the 360 over 2 years to get to 2 million. And this just in, people like price drops. Seriously, this isn't news, it isn't information, its useless fodder for debates that the article can't even really support, and nothing more.
This just in, product's drop price, and result in sales. Were talking about sales. What's your malfunction?
Both systems will have more price drops and various fluxuations in sales. Did you really need this article to tell you that systems are being sold, and price drops often increase the numbers?
PS3's very close to that number, so it's not that big of an accomplishment. And the Wii's still number 1.
...from DJ. 1.) This has NOTHING to do with PS3, so why bring it up? 2.) If it's "not that big", why hasn't the PS3 done it? After all, Sony OWNS the market, RIGHT??
You just called him a "fanboy" and then acted more like a fanboy than he did. As for why the PS3 hasn't hit that number yet? I dunno, because the PS3 launched over a year after the 360 maybe? Just guessing, but I'm sure the PS3 will get there too, and then we can have another pointless article to read.
Damn that alot of hate. Congrats MS keep the comp going.
@xboxftw: ahh cool it man/woman...I was only testing the waters...x360 is a good buy...with the hardrive I mean...and like at least you tried to come back with comeback... edit: you know what...just for fun lets try this: your giving ms money. I'm giving sony money. we're bothing f**king losing money...but your paying to play online...don't give me the whole 'quality' bull...if you had burnout you couldn't even play burnout paradise on the arcade machine...and that's something you just can't rectify..dude you're being f**ked with your eyes open...and oh yeh the biggest game at the mo on 360 happens to be COD$, where did HALO go? oh yeh...even he's bailing to the ps3? HA hah hah hah hah hah ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but that aint nothing...cause I really do feel sad...x360 'just' had a price cut...and brought 'finally' the wii into play...and the ps3's still outselling it...and with what 'Prolouge'? I call it a game...you call it a demo...so like a ps3 demo is now kicking x360 ass....during a huge week for x360, where it went up 40% you and I both know...sooner or later there'll be a game on ps3 that's gonna make you understand why turned to the dark side...but I'm looking at the x360 list and dude...personally, apart from ninja gaiden, I don't want anything... one last thing..why do x360 fans keep claiming they have games?, its freaking console, it's suppose to have games...i've got nineteen games... game on dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
