You'd think the main title would be related to what they left for last
"Notably, Sony's PS3 was the top home console overall in September, breaking the Xbox 360's"

and next month we will just be back to the status quo when the GTA hype dies off.

xHeavYx1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

You are crazy funny. This month starts total domination for Sony, the ball will keep rolling next month with the PS4

MysticStrummer1076d ago

Status quo is PS3 outselling 360. Did you know that?

Godmars2901076d ago

@MysticStrummer:
Worldwide. Which is why most sites report US sales only.

Though that means if the 360 hit 80 and the PS3 recently matched that, then the PS3 has likely outsold it on all counts. And Gamespot is showing bias.

I am glad that I supported both sony and ms this gen even though I used my ps3 hell lot more, I still had a good time gaming on 360. competition is good. congrats to both sony and ms for their achievements but having said that I do not trust ms anymore and I will not purchase x1 at all. it will be ps4 all the way.

And PC's outsold both PS3 and Xbox360 LOL!!!

xHeavYx1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

Just go away dude, come back when you can pay TLOU or Halo on PC

Moncole1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

Those are called exclusives and every system has them so don't make like only PS3 and 360 have exlcusives. PC has the Stalker series as an exclusive and will get Star Citizin. The Wii U has Wonderfull 101 and will get Super Mario 3D World.

The Great Melon1076d ago

@xHeavYx

Well I own Halo and Halo 2 on the PC...

rainslacker1076d ago

And tablets outsold PS3, 360, and PC combined. Doesn't mean we give a rat's ass.

_QQ_1076d ago

@ rainslacker and thats the point i'm making.... someone gets it.

XisThatKid1075d ago

Why tell me to go away? you are the one trolling an xbox article... i think you should go away, come back when you can play SC2 or Rome total war 2 on consoles.

GrizzliS19871076d ago

LOL what a fail. compare gaming PCs to consoles plz.

I dont care how you look at it, having a maxed out rig is the biggest waste of money youl ever see, and youre only cool among your PC gamer crowd, while normal people look at you like your an idiot for spending that much on a few extra frame rates.

fail is a fail. sorry.

go out, spend 200 bucks on a ps3 and play some games that won countless awards for the games that they are, not how many frames they pushed. you scrubbbb

@grizzlis1987
Sorry if you have a teacher's salary....
don't take it out on people that can afford their hobby.
Should shooters just buy pellet guns to save money?
Should archers just buy wooden bows to save Money?
Should movie enthusiasts not buy Bluray or large HDTV's to save money?

Also countless awards? Video game awards are a joke as of now.

The Great Melon1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

@GrizzliS1987

My friend bought recently built his new PC for just under 600 dollars. He plays most games at 1440p. I agree that maxing out a rig is wasteful, but you don't have to break the bank to have a more than capable PC that does more than just gaming.

mkis0071075d ago

@ The Great Melon

Uh something you may not be telling us because I am running a gtx680 which i paid around $600 for by itself. He runs at 1440p? does he turn all the settings down while he is doing that?

The Great Melon1075d ago (Edited 1075d ago )

He may not necessarily be on Ultra settings for every game, but everything is typically on high. Regardless, my point is that you can exceed PS3 and Xbox 360 graphics considerably with very average graphics cards nowadays. Sure he might have to turn stuff down to 1080p in the future, but it will easily exceed PS4 and Xbox One graphics.

aceitman1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

im sorry but ms needs to stop , they cant say there the number one selling console in sept , so they say Microsoft said the Xbox 360 remains the number one selling console in the US for 2013, and I thought ms doesn't like to say they shipped , what happened to we sold. ms get over urself ur running out of bragging rights, ms acts so snub that's what got them in such a mess.

InTheLab1076d ago

It's just business. You never admit or even acknowledge your competition. Why should MS congratulate Sony for doing in one month what they done all year?

aceitman1076d ago

@inthelab lol sony doesn't need ms to congratulate them . u act like I said that, hell sony has done worldwide what ms has done in the us only so , sony has this one(worldwide which is better than just the us) sony is going to sell not ship 80 million this week. and sony has topped worldwide preorders including the usa , so with no head start and a higher price sony has this one in the bag, ps2 day bag. and to get my point across ms needs to get there head out there arse and learn its there turn to wake the hell up and know there not on a high horse.

InTheLab1076d ago

Preaching to the choir dude. I'm a sony guy all day but I can at least acknowledge that Microsoft's US dominance without bringing up Sony's accomplishments.

aceitman1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

practice what u preach these are ur words -why should MS congratulate Sony for doing in one month what they done all year? u metion sony 1st facepalm dude.

fhizikz1076d ago

Lol haters man. Xbox brand come and took market share in a sony dominated market. Good job ms

B-radical1076d ago

Agreed MS did great with the 360 The 360 has made xbox a legitimate console competitor

4logpc1076d ago

They went from selling 24 million a generation, to 78. If that isn't impressive, idk what is.

WeAreLegion1076d ago

What about 0 to 80 Million? Because someone did that.

dantesparda1076d ago

@4logpc

Having sold over 100 million on your first system and then selling over 155 million on your second system. Heck, even the so called failure (PSP) has sold over 76 million. That's even more impressive

4logpc1076d ago

this has nothing to do with Sony...no one said a thing about Sony...

DanielGearSolid1076d ago

Shouldnt it say 360 ships 80mil

GrizzliS19871076d ago

considering 30% failed rate, and the problem being fixed at around 60 million, your looking at average of 20 million units red ringed, in which you subtract at LEAST 10 million from the overall sales of 80 mil, putting the box at about 70 mill total.

ps3 somewhere around 75 mill

IcicleTrepan1076d ago

You know they fixed most of those for free, I seriously doubt the Xbox repair team adds repair/replacement jobs as 'new units sold'.

Don't be an idiot. They would be into some very serious accounting fraud if they tried that.

Hicken1076d ago

Given that they never even acknowledged the rate of failure, how you can say what percentage were fixed for free?

Besides, it's not like they reimbursed people for the systems they had to replace out of pocket prior to the extended warranty being enacted, some 18 months later.

GrizzliS19871075d ago

thats why instead of subtracting 20 mill, i subtracted 10 mill. I gave the other 10 mill as a replacement, and the 10 mill i took off was for the people who went out and bought a new one

fhizikz1076d ago

Even if they haven't been 1st for a while they are nearly matching sony sales I think that's not bad at all. Everyone jus knew sony was gunna dominate this gen I still think they did ok
