Analyst: US PS3 Sales in September 2013 Will Top Xbox 360 for the First Time in 32 Months

With the final NPD US sales numbers for the month of September 2013 being released this Thursday, Wedbush Securities brought out their estimates, predicting that it will be a huge month, mostly due to Grand Theft Auto V. - PSLS (PS3, Xbox 360)

Hopefully
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 37

Would be worth it just to see Microsoft not being able to mention it after every NPD report, it got old real fast.

Yes, certainly so.

The primary reason the PS3 will outsell the Xbox 360 in the US in September is because of the GTA V PS3 bundle. That actually caused a huge spike in PS3s sold worldwide.

ps3 has been outselling xbox360 since launch nothing new, usa is not the world. but its good for sony i guess as a moral victory
GribbleGrunger  +   430d ago
I'm assuming they're taking into consideration the fact that Sony have lots of exclusives they can add to bundles. I don't think it's impossible but I find it unlikely; although the difference between the two consoles has been shrinking for the last three years. Last year the 360 outsold the PS3 by 500,000 units (800,000 the year before and 1.2 million the year before that). It depends on whether MS want to focus entirely on the X1 because of the pressure from PS4 pre-orders. I'll say it will be more or less level this Christmas.

Microsoft held the throne for quite some time this generation, but Sony came back strong and finished first at the finish line.

http://www.vgchartz.com/

PS3 - 79,9 millions

360 - 78,8 millions

There was a lot of doubters against Sony but they managed to pull it off and they're at the top.

Nextgen will probably be even better for Sony with the lack of doubters on PS4.

well yeah. i mean when your at the top, you have nowhere to go but down. But at least they realized what was wrong and fixed it.
GribbleGrunger  +   430d ago
Why have you quoted world wide numbers in a thread about American sales? MS have beaten Sony at Christmas for over three years straight but Sony have always sold more consoles over the full year. I'm starting to feel really embarrassed about being a Sony fan. I bet those 4 disagrees are from Sony fanboys who don't understand I'm talking about the Christmas period sales.

It would be nice to see to close out the months before next-gen.

And now your failure is complete. Now you know the *POWER* of the Darkside - have a cookie!

(If its true)

Seriously, at the very least GTA being as big as it is might mean that open world game mechanics become the new thing. For AAA anyway.

TheFallenAngel  +   430d ago
Neither did I but my brother did so I got to play all the games that I wanted on 360.
Bhuahahaha  +   430d ago

I bought two already but I gave my second one to my cousin since it was just collecting dust in my room and besides he's in school and most of his friends has a 360 do I worked out in the end.
Evilsnuggle  +   430d ago
Three 360 red rings of death for me . No xbone for me I'm tired of microSCAMs shenanigans.
GrandpaSnake  +   430d ago
i sold mine after prod first year
AceBlazer13  +   430d ago
Cause people stopped using their 360 so they don't get red ring anymore.

I had one, it died. My younger bro had 3, but traded his in 2 months ago towards the PS4.
DanielGearSolid  +   430d ago
Wow... So bundle's do work
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   430d ago
Depends on the bundle
MadMen  +   430d ago
Interesting... But beating someone one time... in US sales, hardly news.
Bathyj  +   430d ago
It kind of is. If I beat Tiger Woods at golf Id be pretty happy about it.
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   430d ago
This gen was only 32months?...could have swore it was longer.
Hicken  +   430d ago
So is it news that the PS3 has outsold the 360 every year since launch?

Or does that not count because it's global, and one one region that makes up part of the global sales?
rainslacker  +   430d ago
MS seems to have no problem making it news when they outsold the PS3 every month in the US for the past 32 months. By your logic, why is that news?

Just the other week they said how they are the dominant console in the UK. Ignoring the Wii of course, much like they ignored the fact the Wii outsold the 360 in the US as well.

You sound bitter, this isnt about but so and so did this or that, it merely pointing out, one month for anyone even if Xbox out sold PS in japan one month, isnt news, if consistently done for a quarter, that would be news, otherwise this is reaching for straws\hits.

Wise up.

Would be a fitting conclusion to this generation and start next gen with having the Ps4 on top.
Hakoom  +   430d ago
lol ps3 has been outselling xbox for past 30months..
usa isnt the entire world
tuglu_pati  +   430d ago
Did you read the article is talking about NPD US Sales. Not world numbers.
Hakoom  +   429d ago
who cares?
i was talking about worldwide sales :p
Red_Devilz  +   430d ago
If you take into account hardware failure rates, PS3 would have already topped 360 (functioning consoles)
kewlkat007  +   430d ago
Yeah then you minus all the inflated Ps3s sold as blu-ray players and it all makes sense..
yewles1  +   430d ago
...which would still be 1/16th of said failure rates.
cell989  +   430d ago
and if you minus the xbox consoles that went RROD that forced people to buy another one, it all starts to make sense
Red_Devilz  +   430d ago
Ummm....no it doesn't make sense because PS3s bought as "blue ray players" can still function (play BR or games). RROD 360s can not. Does it make sense now?
Hicken  +   430d ago
kat, you're trying (and failing) too hard to try and make a point.

There's no way remotely as many PS3s were sold solely for Blu Ray players as there were 360s replaced due to RROD.

I know that breaks your little fanboy heart, but them's the breaks... no pun intended.

Max-Zorin  +   430d ago
Sony. Establish a monopoly already so everyone can shut up about sales.
rainslacker  +   430d ago
I still want Nintendo to be around. I do like Zelda and Metroid.
xDHAV0K24x  +   430d ago
Nintendo should be bought out by Msft to REALLY stick it to Sony. Nintendo clearly messed up by allowing them to create the playstation
rainslacker  +   430d ago
Nintendo is worth too much to simply be brought out by anyone. Wii U may be struggling, but the Wii made bank, and the 3DS is going strong.

Otherwise, if Nintendo got out of hardware, I'd prefer they just go third party. I'd hate to see any other corporation come in and change Nintendo's business philosophy to stick it to their competition.
xDHAV0K24x  +   430d ago
Dont forget the folks that used to or still mod their 360's. Didnt slow them down xD
