According to this Eurogamer report, Xbox 360 sales have now passed 19 million globally.
19million i was expecting more
guys please try not to be hating be glad that a great system with the best games is doing well stop all this fanboys stuff and just get the console you want.
All the people on 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 or even the worst i have heard so for someone on number 11 just curious!!!because of scratched discs RROD etc!!! Rob.
why did you think the 360 was going to skip 19-29 and go striaght to 30 million sold ?
MS sold around 17 million x360s worldwide MS sold less x360s this YEAR in USA compared to what they sold last year 298k,270k and 285k for JAN, FEB and MARCH 2007 vs 230k , 259k and 265K for JAN,FEB ,MARCH 2008 in europe better not mention X360 sales so 17 million is the actual SALES figures @who dares to disagree with me??? MS sold 17 million to customers and they shipped 19 MILLION ---there is no other way round . They reach 10 m sold in USA last month and they havent reached 6m SOLD in europe. PS3 has passed x360's LTD in europe and is leading in JAPAN by 1.5 million units. There is no way x360 could reach 8 million units SOLD in EUROPE when it hasnt even reached 6 MILLION there. any multiplat game except RB6V has sold more on PS3 in europe because of PS3's larger installed base there of 6 MILLION UNITS
yeah. whooptie doo. The number should find its peak, and stagnate soon.
19 million shipped About 17.5 to 17.7 sold By the time Microsoft pulls the plug on the system in a year or so it is going to barely be passed the first Xbox installed base. In the end, the 360 will be bought by the same people who bought the first Xbox and ignored by the 150+ million PS2 and GameCube owners who didn't care about the Xbox last gen.
yeah and by the way the ps3 is selling. it won't sell 125mil. looks like the wii is steeling all the ps2 fans. @below. and the way the wii is selling it may catch up to the ps2 before that time frame. so your point is what. nothing.
ps3 has a 6-7 year lifespan. a lot of ps2s weren't sold until a sizeable price drop, i'd wait until sony has given up on the ps3 to predict sales numbers
Template...if you think that the 360 won't expand it's fan base then you are just ignorant. In 2 years it has almost surpassed what the original Xbox did and it is ridiculous to think that it won't continue to sell. I'm sure the PS3 will far surpass it in sales by the end of this console generation, but to assume that the 360 will only sell a few million more over the next few years is just short sided.
Question: What console is in 3rd place? Answer: Playstation 3 Question: What console is 1st place in software sales? Answer: Xbox 360 The 360 has been an enormous success, and continues to be the platform of choice for developers and consumers.
The 360 is doing way better than the original xbox, I still reckon it's got a few years left in it, though they do seriously need to think about an xbox 360.5 with a blu ray player.
BeArthur, it's actually slowed down right at it's user base limit, and infact, it took this long to get it there last time. So BS aside, if the 360 sales are slowing now, it's becuasr market saturation. And it will be beign saturated by PS3 owners. GTAIV is a major console selling turning point if you ask me. And more to the point the Wii is still behind the 360, so it's also BS that that will take over PS2 sales. It has got the future proofing, and people will get bored. It's already started to happen, just not in sales.
if 360 can outdo the original which had the install base of roughly 25 millions worldwide. the facts are here; 10 millions sold in 1st year. 8 millions in 2nd year. roughly 1+ million in 1st quarter of 3rd year. thus I don't understand when people said that 2007 was the year of 360 when it clearly was the Wii's as the number of console sold declined by roughly 2 millions and that's still a lot! based on current basis, this year the number of 360 sold this year is at most 5~6 millions which means another big decrease! that's just my rough estimation and as I'm no Mr. Patchter...please just take it lightly!
NO_PUDding...I actually feel that they have more of an issue with the systems reliability hampering sales. I feel they would have sold a lot more if the RRoD and other failures weren't so common.
A vast majority who bought a ps2 also at some point owned an xbox and a gamecube, plus the fact that alot of the ps2's suffered the "disc error" problem meant that multiple purchased were made by one person, dont for one minute think that because the ps2 sold so many that the same will apply for the ps3, the ps2 was really the only console of that Gen to offer casual gaming, my Gran even had one to play sing star, those sales will now go to the wii leaving the ps3 and 360 to battle it out for the "real gamers", neither of these will sell no where near the numbers of the ps2, where as the wii might
Face facts cry baby, just like the 360 GTA IV will outsell the PS3 version 3 to 1 AT LEAST! Xbox 360 sales up 68% for first quarter
didn't the 360 just crossed 18 Mill sold ?? I think it's how many shipped to retailers instead of sold to consumers..
@Max Power "a lot of ps2s weren't sold until a sizeable price drop" The ps3 has already had 2 sizeable price drops.
Did you read the article? SALES of 19 million. Aka 19 million SOLD, not shipped. Haters always gotta pull sh!t out of their ass.
Both Microsoft and Sony count sold, not shipped. I don't see why you even brought that up, especially since Sony's policy of counting only sold units is stricter than Microsoft's. Why are we arguing? This is ridiculous.
MS count SHIPMENT figures as SOLD MS has sold around 17 million x360s to CONSUMERS MS has sold LESS x360s in JAN,FEB MARCH of this year compared to what they SOLD last year see my POST above TEMPLATE That 19 MILLION is the SHIPPED figure.MS reached 10 million in USA last month according to NPD. X360 hasnt reached 6M sold in europe . How would it reach 8 million there . also if 19 million is NOT SHIPPED then MS sold 1 M x360s in JAPAN when MS couldnt even sell 500k there PS3 has surpassed X360's LTD in EUROPE and stands at 6M in EU X360 is around 5.8M there. so it is like 12/13M PS3s vs 16/17 M x360s worldwide in TERMS of SHIPMENT figures it is 19 M for X360 vs 14 M for PS3
I agree with you It is 16.5/17m sold to customers and around 19 million shipped worldwide just add the numbers 10m in NA (x360 reached that last month according to NPD) <6m in eu( confirmed by GFK) 500,000 in JAPAN(famitsu) total x360 sales = 16.5/17 million units
I love how the Sony Douche force has so little to say. First NPD now this and your little black dudt collector cant break 10 million. You like OUR "World wide sales?" HA-HA The 360 would have to NOT SELL AT ALL for you to catch it......Good luck! Xbox 360 sales up 68% for first quarter
wow...lawman. I don't even know where to begin with your stupidity. PS3 is at 12 million. PS3 outsells 360 every month outside the US and was outsold by 5,000 units last month in the US. WOW thats some killing there by the 360 MS reports units shipped, NOT SOLD. They've even claimed that. MS sales continue to decline, while Sony's continue to rise. There are even charts and graphs if reading isn't your strong suit. Soon they will reach an equilibrium (or balance if that word is too complicated for you) and then the rise and decline will start to have more of an impact.
MS sold just 17 million SHIPMENT of 19 million was passed............I repeat SHIPMENT MS sold just 17 million X360s they sold less than what they sold last year LAST year MS sold 298k, 270k and 280k in JAN,FEB ,MARCH 2007 This year they sold 230k, 259k and 265K so sales have plummetted since last year WE all know MS and their typical LIES
SALES havent reached 17 million for x360 10m in NA ( reached last month and confirmed by GFK) <6m in eu (GFK) 500,000 in JAPAN (famitsu) Total x360 sales = 16.5 million units Total number of x360s shipped to retailers = 19 million ( 2.5 million on shelves) also LAWTARD you do realize that GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME sold less in the first 3 months of 2008 compared to what it sold in 2007 (ist 3 months) **thx sammy for the numbers Not to mention that GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME doesnt even exist in europe anymore
This is pathetic .. At what loss?? Last xbox sold at the same rate (lost billions)but wasn't plagued with red ring of death meaning how many billions did the 360 lose ??On top of these lame numbers. Next year is the end of the road for 360.It looks like the same pattern of failure as the first Xbox.. Next XBOX please!!...Lame budget PC technology..ill Pass. Im happy with Bluray and Cell daulshock 3 and eyetoy ,and addons, 500GB hard drive to 1 tereabyte.. Thank you Sony.. Maybe instead of making a lowbudget PC clone and losing billions,MS should release a unique console with 10 or 15 cores, upgradable Ram and 250MBps SSD raid drives and True HD video out with 2 GB RAM and Bluray,or do something uniqe with controllers and stuff?
big f'n deal.
they still have another 2yrs to sell more till then ull see the highest amount of consoles sold
With the amount that Microsoft pumped into the red ring debacle I very much doubt they'll pull the plug any time soon.
didn't it come in 'November-2005'? (not sure if thats right tho that date) its not a lot of sales really if its been out that long.
Let us put this in perspective. The 3 largest markets for console sales are America, Europe and Japan. Americans and Europeans buy PS3's, Wii's and 360's. The Japanese only buy PS3's and Wii's. The vast majority of 360 sales are in America and Europe. Even with the Wii's huge success, if you remove Japan from any sales data. Then the 360 is still number one in hardware sales.
My god, you have the queerest avatar I have ever seen.
"lets just ignore those numbers because we dont like them..."
19million 360s sold......12 million 360 owners.....you do the math
"19million 360s sold......12 million 360 owners.....you do the math" And the award for the first 'fact' pulled out of one's arse goes to..............snakeater3.
snackeater theres over 10 million XBL users, so your saying that basically everyone that has an xbox has XBL!
hey hey hey ....no need to go flaming my a$$....i was just making a joke on the 33% 360 failure rate.....u must admit, there cannot be 19million 360 users....3 of my mates already owned 7 360s altogether with one poor chap having his 360 die on him 3 times ...ouch
you do the math SONY has shipped around 14 million PS3s to retailers MS has shipped 19 million x360s to retailers so SALES to consumers is 17 million vs 13 million for xbox 360 and PS3 sales to RETAILERS is 19 million vs 14m for x360 and PS3 MS sold just 17 million UNITS
19 mills okay. Ps3 is selling about the same numbers give or take yearly. Both doing well enough.
this is probably shipped numbers. 360 is around at least 17- 18 million for sold
no the 360 has 19+million units in households just accept it and move on .
MS sold just 17 million X360s MS sold just 17 million SHIPMENT of 19 million was passed............I repeat SHIPMENT MS sold just 17 million X360s they sold less than what they sold last year LAST year MS sold 298k, 270k and 280k in JAN,FEB ,MARCH 2007 This year they sold 230k, 259k and 265K so sales have plummetted since last year WE all know MS and their typical LIES
The original Xbox sold a little over 24 million in 4 years. The Sbox 360 has sold 19 now according to this report in about 2 and 1/2 years.While not too impressive looking at first, keep in mind they have done this without the sub $200 casual gamers. Once the pricepoint hits this mark, sales will increase much faster.This is true for all three console manufacturers. -Death
Sub $200 the Core / Arcade is already $250.
19 million 360's for 12 million ps3's Geez when is the gap gonna close down ?????? Oh yeah I see all th ps3 fanboys yelling "SHIPPPPPEEEEDDD" not sold. At the end of 2007 they said 17.7million sold and not shipped so 19 miilon sold today aint no lie. Anyway they'll still deny and say Sony is the only company in the world to talk about "sold" and not "shipped" when everyone knows Sony has always given "shipped' numbers since the ps2 era. All in all 360's doing a great job standing up to the the evil ps3 lol By the way they still havnt dropped the price in their biggest market (USA) so I can see the 360 easily outselling the first xbox
The gap is closing as we speak man. The worldwide "gap" has been closing for like 6 months now and it's getting nothing but smaller and smaller as time goes by. Not to mention we haven't seen sales figures for Europe yet after GT5p has hit.
Original Xbox- 24 Million units sold Xbox 360- 19 Million units sold Total Xbox's- 43 Million units sold Playstation/PS1- 130 Million units sold Playstation 2- 120 Million units sold Playstation 3- 12 Million units sold (so far) Total Playstations'- 262 Million units sold Go figure, we win
...and they said i was Crazy!!! ;-D
THEY shipped 19 million to RETAILERS which MS counts as SOLD MS DIDNT sell 19 million UNITS to CUSTOMERS MS sold just 17 million UNITS to CUSTOMERS SHIPMENT of 19 million was passed............I repeat SHIPMENT MS sold just 17 million X360s they sold less than what they sold last year LAST year MS sold 298k, 270k and 280k in JAN,FEB ,MARCH 2007 This year they sold 230k, 259k and 265K so sales have plummetted since last year WE all know MS and their typical LIES
Windows platforms(PC)- 800+ Million units sold <-- added for accuracy Original Xbox- 24 Million units sold Xbox 360- 19 Million units sold Total Microsoft's- 843 Million units sold Playstation/PS1- 130 Million units sold Playstation 2- 120 Million units sold Playstation 3- 12 Million units sold PSP- 30+ Million units sold <-- added for accuracy Total Sony's- 292 Million units sold <-- fixed for accuracy Go figure, *they* win <-- you owned
early year start jackass!! Sony will destroy those # soon!! And anyways about 18,999,999 only work!!
probably over one-third are already back for repair.
What people fail to realize is that everyone is making money this generation. Xbox, the only console that didn't make any money last gen is finally making money. This is good news- there is enough room in the video game market for 3 major consoles (and PS2). With that said, the Xbox is not slowing down if only temporarily. There are price cuts and holiday sales to consider. The majority of sales for any console come after it reaches the magical $200 price and lower. We should expect the "losing" console this gen to sell at least 30 million.
I think at this moment in time the ps3 is not making money, they still have all of the blu ray investment capital to make up before they see a profit
Try saying that to launch ps3 owners for the first year and a half. Or to those who bought a 360 only to have it succumb to the RROD. Heck, even the Wii owners who find the system and their games being more and more catered to a different demographic than ever before. Point is, I've never seen such mishaps and segregation as much as this console era. I've also never seen gamers more divided like this... ever. The "true birth" of a fanboy is what I'd call it.
I guess some need to have their console dominate to be happy with their purchase. I just dont get it?!?! Gamers are definately the winners this gen
of the 19 million, how many have lasted longer than 4 months?
but I also bought a warrenty so I can get an upgrade later.
By the time ps3 catches up, the 720 will be made and ready for the stores, then thats when the ps3 "10 year plan" comes into play, like with the ps2 sony will have no choice but to continue selling them for the money and tell everyone "we are still selling these because we care for you, honest!"
well until 360 passes about 25 million units sold, they haven't eaten into playstation's market share at all
That's an interesting idea. The Xbox 360 has 19M and that is more than the PS3. And, it has a game-industry record attach rate. +10M on LIVE. What kind made-up level is that?
it would mean everyone who bought a mega drive or snes would of then bought the saturn and N64 and i think everyone here knows how those 2 stories played out. i loved my dreamcast but not many others did unfortunately as it was an awesome console. i like some one else commented on have owned 3 ps2 over the years due to the disc read error. all out of warranty so i had to spend my own cash replacing. I also know many others who have had to do the same. THis will inflate the nos im guessing ure part of the new breed of gamer raised solely on PS. Things do and always will change as Eddie murphy said in coming to America [luv that film] NIN have made a comeback with the wii and really captured the imagination of casuals and open minded hardcore. 360 is selling to hardcore and to part of the casual market due to games and price and lives community. PS3 has now started to sell due to br hd victory and its starting to get a few sytem sellers. i worked in game during the holidays and have seen a small insight into the sales demographic first hand and im willing to bet big money thatvthe ps3 will not sell as much as the PS2. Sonys market share has been severly cut by the stiff competition. All but 2 out of 15 of my in the flesh friends now have 360s after owning ps2s only or with another console/s. Price, games, online exp and easy to use controls are the main selling points for games consoles these days and the wii/360 win every category. Br is the main selling point 4 the Ps3 at present and with HD downloads already available on the 360 those wanting to rent not buy are covered. If you look at relationship cd/mp3 have i think thats how video source will go in the next few years.
Delusional rhetoric at it finest! Once again, another loser decides the PS3 only sells because it plays Blu ray discs. Do you smoke crack? The PS3 has been out for just 1 year in europe, yet continues to outsell the 360 by extremely significant margins month after month, despite MS desperately bringing in a round of price cuts in that territory. The games software attach rate week after week is higher on the PS3. Look at the figures and see for yourself, a higher percentage of PS3 owners buy games every week than 360 or WII owners. That's games software. Not movies. Your argument is provably and demonstrably false. I don't care who like what system, or who 'wins' a sales war. I have them all and will continue to buy games for all three, but I do despise people who continue to purport myths which are constantly proved false by the evidence. People who are buying PS3's are buying them to play games. Each and every PS3 owner buys more games per week than owners of other machines. You want to dispute it? Show me any sales figures anywhere that show a weekly attach rate where the PS3 system was not a clear leader. Any territory you like, as although its hugely different in Europe, its also true in the US even if the figures are closer. The 360 has did well in its debut year, but it has not captured the market in the way that MS might have hoped or the way that the WII has, and sales figures are falling each succesive year. Though it may surpass the install base of the original xbox, its beginning to look like it won't do it by much, and as the market has increased significantly, you can rightly argue that it hasn't captured any real market share at all this generation - not unless sales start to pick up again and buck the trend. Its a great machine and I've played many fine games on it, but it simply has not captured the market the way that MS hoped it would. Does that matter? Hell no, theres more than enough core gamers for it to continue to attract great games for years, so us owners can continue to play great games on it. But will it win the sales war? Not a chance in hell - when this generation is drawing to a close it will be a distant third place. But thats still significant business, and having started to turn a profit I sincerely hope MS stay in the running for the next gen.
Why don't you do me the decency of reading my whole post before you get upset because i said the ps3 will not sell the nos that Ps2 sold. Due to in short from my post Ps2 reliabilty issues(inflating ps2 sales no's), Sonys market share being severly cut by strong competition from the wii/360. As for Br not being the main selling point for the ps3 at this present moment. what are you smoking!!!! I own a wii/360/Hd tv and the only thing that briefly made me want a Ps3 over any of my consoles was Gt5p untill i found that the Lack of damage/realistic collisions has meant the time trials and online mode are rife with cheats making it unplayable except in 1player which is linear and boring. Not to mention the online is plagued with long loading times which still dont sort out the lagg and cars jumping all over the place. I also wonder what Mgs online will play like after the atrocity that was Pes2008 online(wish id not bought it now replaced with fifa 08) The other consoles are winning on price(360/wii), games (360), online exp(360) and easy to use controls(wii) So why are people buying the Ps3 instead of the other two?? You could argue to some extent reliability although from my exp at game the average consumer doesn't know about the rrod and the warranty given by ms covers you as a consumer. You could also argue potential for great games but my guess is that hardcore gamers buying for potential are either waiting till the goods come out or bought ps3 in the first year and are still waiting. I never said the Ps3 will not sell more than 360 infact i think it will due to it appealing to a wider market(vid buffs and gamers.) But i still believe that at the end it will not dominate. The wii will be the one to conquer all. As for 360 vs ps3 i dont care who wins i just like a debate. I think that those not upgrading to Hd in the near future will go for the cheaper 360 to play multiplatform games.I guess it depends when Hd hit mainstream as to when the ps3 will move ahead but even then do you really think those buying the wii or a 360 for £150 are thinking about Hd. Hard core gamers are the ones that care about the exc like Mgs4/mass effect and i guess right now it us who are buying Hd tvs along with the vid/high tech buffs. I guess time will tell.
Well I don't think that its delusional to at least think that ps3 sales have picked up "some what"(not all) due to Bluray winning the format war, hell I thouhgt it would be much more dramatic in terms of sales but hey either way, I just think its funny you attack him yet some of your comments sound slanted also, especially from the first paragraph: "The PS3 has been out for just 1 year in europe, yet continues to outsell the 360 by extremely significant margins month after month, despite MS desperately bringing in a round of price cuts in that territory." hmmm, so whats this "significant margin" you are referring to and where is your source? I mean I have read different statements/sources that put ps3 selling ahead of 360 so far (don't know how long and the amount seems to vary) so I'm just wondering what the "margin" actually is, not that I really care but I hate it when we don't have facts/proof when talking about data and people act as if they know what it is, so please link me to your source. and why do you classify micro as "desperatey bringing round price cuts in that territory" when sony has cut the price in the first year multiple times and introduced a more affordable sku in all 3 territories? hmmm I just think that statement shows where your head is at. JOY
What makes think I didn't read your post? I did, and it was riddled with the same 'I know better than everyone else' rhetoric that afflicts many of the posters on this and other web sites. As for not reading posts, why didn't you read the reply which plainly told you why you are peddling Bullsh*t. If people buy a PS3 to play Blu rays, why is the weekly attach higher? If the 360 is cheaper, why did it cost me considerably more money to buy my 360 set up than my PS3? Don't try and pretend that WiFi, Online gaming, chargeable c
