Newzoo's Peter Warman estimates that promo deals for the Xbox 360 and new content will make it the top seller this fall, even with the new console introductions.
lol flame article. ok i see what they are saying...id say ps3 will win simply because of ps+ and being cheaper w bundles with games likt tlou, beyond2souls, and multiplats like cod bf. funny how estimates compare things that happend in the past but not take the now into consideration.
Doesn't look like you read the story. It's not purely a flame article if a neutral third-party market analyst has drawn this conclusion.
i should have said flame title. ive read the article btw. title should read: " xbox360 ESTIMATED to be the top selling console this fall"
what helped he 360 sell more than ps3 was a lower price so I can see the ps4 taking the lead this fall
you forgot the year and a half headstart and the rrod=boost sales even more
x360 is truly the king of the hill when it comes to NA .. but Worldwide we all KNOW that PS3 is THE true King P.S: Wii says hi
I love my 360 for FPS & sports games. Best system ever created for both of those. That is where it ends though. There are a few good games here and there but this gen for xbox has been disappointing after the original and good games we got with the first xbox, everything this gen just seems empty, hollow and lifeless.
Just remember for the atypical American the whole of the world is just America. That's all most have seen, experienced and know.
F THE 360
Makes sense. Just like the PS2 continued to sell well for years.
Blasphemy comparing the 360 to the King of consoles, besides, even with MS claiming they will continue to support the 360, it will be dead in the water this time next year.
I doubt that. Microsoft stated they have 100 games coming to the 360 (almost entirely third-party, but still). Plus game companies are going to make more cross-generation titles because of higher costs this gen. Also, they are making a ton of money on the system and each sale introduces people to the Xbox brand. Besides they have supported the console for 8 years: what else do you want? If your just now picking up a console you have several hundred amazing to good third and first party games to pick up. I think Microsoft might support the Xbox 360 longer than Sony does the PS3 just because it is super profitable for them.
PS3 launched a year after Xbox 360, and I don't expect many ps3 Sony exclusives launched this time next year,..
*high five* for defending the PS2's honor!
Ill just go grab some popcorn...
extra butter this time....last time the popcorn was bland....and a pepsi...NOT COKE...if you come back with a mf coke again so help me GOD.......
Sorry bro...you will have to make do with pepsi max..and stay away from my orange tango! *passes extra butter pop corn*
pepsi max? FFFFFUUUUUUU...still.... better than coke..** looks at comments below ** yeah this is getting entertaining...imma go get some nachos brb
If so there gonna achieve this year and forget what happened last year
Once the xbone comes out the 360 will be obsolete, Microsoft will gradually drop support and in a year from now will be dead
They said 3 years but ok.
really? had no idea, well I guess we'll find out
How come that graph is missing the Wii?
According to vgchartz the ps3 outsold the 360 worldwide, I know vgchartz and any other sales sites are not really that accurate, but ps3 outsold the 360 by a full mill. Good news. Still 360 and ps3 are both winners and both good consoles. Competition between them makes all gamers winners.
1 million in sales is not really that much though. Technically still possible for MS to catch up and overtake. Also they're not talking overall anyway, they are talking this fall. They must be anticipating a price drop.
I think a price drop for the 360 will come and the usa still has black Friday where the 360 always sells loads too. I'm glad all 3 have had a good gen this time round and I hope all 3 have a good one next time round too as each one of them has done there best to keep up with the other and have all pushed to out do the other too. I'm expecting the same with the new gen but I'm expecting a slow start for the one and pa4 after the 1st few months on the market and it all kicking in again come Christmas 2014.
/Sarcasm on Well considering the stellar AAA 360 games and the many highest rated AAA exclusives that was released for the 360 the last few years in comparison with the poor competition efforts ... I just wonder what these "independent" shilling "third party Analysts" aka shilling for M$ based their predictions on? I just wonder. /end sarcasm. Sometimes the American reality are beyond comprehension Lets reserve the right of opinion and wait for the final results by the end of the year to prove who was right and what the champion console will be! The King has returned will be the headlines in the newspapers!
/sarcasm on You're absolutely right. The Xbox 360 only sold 70+ million units because it doesn't have any good games that anyone likes. /sarcasm off Your perception of reality is the problem. PS3 and 360 are both good consoles with good game libraries.
Yeah, only pity that M$ let you fannybois down the last few years, Gawd even exclusives that were supposed to be on the 360 was abdicated to the eXB0ne. Yet fools still believe in the greedy corporation M$ even after all the lies and distortions since E3. Your loss buddy not mine. I will not wager one cent on the lying kniving M$ American corporate giant concerning gaming or consoles.
Well... In 2014, its going to be the PS4 for sure ;-) 360 = junk....
It is the same as saying when the PS3 came out that the PS2 instantly became junk. It wasn't true then and it's not true now.
You = ignorant fanboy
PS3 IS SUPERIOR AND XBOX STILL OUT SELLS IT IN THE USA! XBOX ONE WILL BE JUST FINE.
it will do fine but will fail compared to the 360
Naturally, one thing you can get over, is these weirdos and their brand loyalty. Xbox in the US dominates the Holiday season continuously. I am getting a PS4 but I dont deny facts just because they aren't my brand of choice.
That's true, but why isn't the title "Xbox 360 to be the Top Selling Console in the US This Fall"?
"Right now, roughly 60 million Americans play on the Xbox 360, compared with 46 million on the PS3. Less than 10 million Americans still use the original Xbox, but the PS2 still has a large user base. In fact, the number of PS3 gamers surpassed the number of PS2 gamers only one year ago." WTF? This isn't true at all. 360 sales in the US are about 40million. Active userbase should be around 20million which is around the number of Xbox Live Gold subscribers. The PS3 number is even more off as there are only about 25m PS3s in America.
yeah, that should be fixed to say worldwide.
For America, maybe... Worldwide, the PS3 continues to stomp the 360 on a monthly basis. GTA V bundles, GT6, Beyond, and The Last of Us will ensure great holiday sales for the PS3. The 360 doesn't stand a chance.
keep dreaming buddy worldwide ps3 OWNS the 360 and thats all i need to know...dont care if its doing great only in the US
