Seems legit. Xbox One will replace my old 360 :)

JokesOnYou1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Yeah clearly the 360 is become the gamers choice in America. Shows the brand is still strong it will be interesting to see how this translates over the first year and beyond for the x1.

ohiostatesman1770d ago

Hell yeah. Go Xbox. It's funny it really doesn't matter what you read online especially on n4g. Xbox is a success and the people's champion out in the real world.

karl1770d ago

the rest of the world asks u..

what the hell North America?

black0o1770d ago

i'll gve it another 2-3 months to remain at #1 until PS4 arrives

HammadTheBeast1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Well it's New.Xbox.com, so I can't see any hint of bias there.

Edit: Didn't want to waste any bubbles on you, care to explain how they say that it's the #1 console in US when Nintendo 3DS has held that title for a while now?

JokesOnYou1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

yeah Hammad but its not an opinion piece its just facts based on NPD. You OK Buddy?

black0o1770d ago

@hammad for the 1st time i do agree with @jokes the source is NPD

Welp, according to Hammad:

Console = Handheld

Whatever you say there captain.

Deadpoolio1770d ago

How sad that even though they sell more consoles per month they are still in 3rd place behind a console that came out an entire year after the 360...Oh yeah that's right they would rather just tout that they sold more per month and pretend they aren't in 3rd in total sales

buynit1770d ago

Deadpoolio..

I look at it different... Remember those xbxox ps2 numbers? Yea.. Nothing like that anymore now is it..

Hicken1770d ago

@Convas:

Uh, no. According to Hammad:

Handheld=Console

And it is, so yeah...

kreate1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Well.. to be fair.

One can also argue that the ps3 was the top selling console in japan, korea, hong kong, singapore, phillipines, france, germany, italy, etc etc for so many consecutive months compare to 360's success in only 1 country.

I know its npd but since ppl are arguing sales I'm just putting out another persepective.

While I do congratulate Microsoft for their sales in america, I also gotta question if they care about their gaming brand on a global scale.

I mean, if sony focused only in 1 country and shut their ears on the rest of the world, I'm sure they'll be no. 1 as well. Or no.2 whatever u want to put them as.

Well to be *really* fair.

The combined marketshare of
all those countries listed is a fraction of the largest console gaming market in the world, the US!

In addition, NPD is considered as official as it gets when it comes to sales numbers. I'm not aware of the other countries have similar numbers released.

If not, then what are the news to report?

We do get numbers from Japan, every now and then, but we don't say "oh, my God, Japan isn't the world!".

"While I do congratulate Microsoft for their sales in america, I also gotta question if they care about their gaming brand on a global scale. "

What idiot thinks MS don't?

They are going to Gamescom and sell their products on a pretty global scale!

*'The combined marketshare of

individually they're smaller, but combined, the world's market is larger than the US.

*'They are going to Gamescom and sell their products on a pretty global scale!'

having a product available on a global scale doesnt mean it will sell. its just there. they should make a effort to sell it in foreign lands. looking at the sales, the entire planet doesnt seem to care about xbox games other than america. giving the benefit of the doubt, the next in line is UK than Canada.

im just saying microsoft should make more variety of games other than halo and gears. cuz different ppl want different games.

they should also make some games themself than just relying on 3rd party companies to make games for them.

i have a xbox360. there's nothing to play on it since 2011 other than kinect games. so im currently collecting old games that are dirt cheap cuz there was plenty of games from 2006-2009 for the 360.

JokesOnYou1769d ago (Edited 1769d ago )

Kreate discussing foreign sales in a NPD thread, where NPD has officially been used by both companies in the past to reference sales data. Yet you rattle off all these other countries and provide not 1 link to backup your claim....sure simple math points to ps3 is doing better overall in those regions for year end totals but there is nothing that says by how much in each country and for how long in other words 360 might have been up a few months out of the year in a couple locations but maybe ps3 wins big on holidays without specific data we cant compare apples to apples with NPD info. oh I know why don't I just take your word for it.

kreate1769d ago

@jokesonyou

ur right. apologies for bringing foreign sales arguement in a npd article.

as far as links goes... which one do u need?

JokesOnYou1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

Well you said this:

"One can also argue that the ps3 was the top selling console in japan, korea, hong kong, singapore, phillipines, france, germany, italy, etc etc for so many consecutive months compare to 360'"

-So besides Japan how about a link with month to month sales data for ANY of the other countries YOU mentioned?

Im actually very curious because its a given Japan identifies itself with a Japanese centric gaming culture that nintendo and sony thrive in but I've never seen anything specifically for the other countries.

kreate1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

@jokesonyou

if ps3 outsold xbox360 in worldwide sales, but gets outsold by xbox360 in america, where do u think the ps3 sales came from?
u saw the npd articles, xbox360 dominates ps3 for 31 consecutive months. well how would a ps3 outsell the xbox360 in worldwide sales?

they all came from japan?

i just did a quick google search and here are a few links ive found. im not gonna bother doing any intensive research cuz i really dont care enough where i want to spend much time on this matter.

Good for you, if you didn't have such a bad history of kissing Microsofts ass, maybe you wouldn't have gotten so many disagrees.

25 million to 70+ million next-gen2next-gen growth is a WIN for Microsoft..They going nowhere...regardless of the fanboys whining that have no intentions of getting the Xone.

It started rough loosing money but have been on the greener side of things the last couple years..

After all the bottom line has been growth with the brand..

Mikeyy1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

If you thought the backlash from the X1 reveal was simply sony fanboys, you are in for a rude awakening.

30k likes and 20k dislikes on a youtube video is far beyond the reach of a group of fanboys, its real customer resentment.

and were talking a video from a week ago, post all the 180s, there is still angry former customers.

kewlkat0071770d ago

Trust me, I'll be playing the XBone when it launches with 3-4 games pre-ordered on that faithful day.

There will be nothing rude about it.

I'll let you and others with no interest fight over sales.

_FantasmA_1770d ago

And then RROD will make you replace it again. And then RROD will make you replace the replacement. And then RROD will make you replace the one that was replaced by a replacement. Or you could just get PS4 and PC. Your welcome.

Cool when it is number one worldwide. Come back and talk to me.

Dlacy13g1770d ago

Ahh...you mean the Wii.... got it.

As to the numbers, not a great month for anyone.

aceitman1770d ago

@ after thought u mean like this right ,
http://www.vgchartz.com/wee...
boom baby boom.

HammadTheBeast1770d ago

Where are you going with this? 3DS is first, then PS3 is second.

aceitman1770d ago

@hammadthebeast I didn't mention any console I replied to afterthoughts comment and yes 3ds is 1st ps3 2nd and 360 ummm at 3rd not 1st. it is 1st in usa ONLY . so when its 1st world wide then I thinks it can boast about sales in consecutive times . its not like its a wide margin then maybe I can see them boasting. 3ds is on fire. ps3 is on a roll and 360 is really losing its steam .

PSNintyGamer1770d ago

Wait, I thought it was 3ds according to this article

http://n4g.com/news/1333986...

Which one is it?

desertpunk861770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

u.s.a!u.s.a!u.s.a!u.s.a!u.s.a! u.s.a!

ABeastNamedTariq1770d ago

I thought it was the 3DS? I guess they mean home consoles, duh. Good for them though.
