Microsoft: Xbox 360 Will Beat PS3 For Years On Software Sales

As the dust settles from E3, it's time to get back into the daily grind of the console wars. One man, Microsoft's Don Mattrick, is taking a stand. He claims that the Xbox 360 will see higher software sales over the PS3 for the rest of both console's lifecycles.

Them's fightin' words.

The story is too old to be commented.

Seriously Microsoft and Sony should BOTH JUST STFU!!!

They are huge corporations swimming in money while we buy all their 60$ games.

Some one should slap these mo fo's.

Below: Microsoft and Sony are both multi-billion dollar global conglomerates. They are much much bigger and more wealthy than Nintendo.

LastDance3401d ago

i think nintendo is doing that.

TheColbertinator3401d ago

@M4verick Totally agree with you.Sony PR and Microsoft PR do not STFU.

Its annoying to make these bold claims and then eat their own words later on.

Snukadaman3401d ago

both say the dumbest f*cking things...like anything they say wont be shot down by either side for sounding stupid as hell...

GameDev3401d ago

you dont see sony coming out and talking crap like this, in fact they applaud ms for helping to expand the market. only the greedy megamaniacal tards over at MS see another market they can't monopolize as a bad thing.

dont try to lump sony in with these dipsh1ts, they are in a class of their own.

Snukadaman3401d ago

here are a couple just for you mr blind ass fanboy....
4) “Microsoft is not a technology company.”
Nobuyuki Idei, Sony chief corporate adviser in an interview with BBC NEWS

5) “Sorry you didn't have the opportunity to buy a PS3 this year, but I'm sure it beats lining up in a queue for hours on end only to be told the store has sold out.”
Michael Ephraim, Managing Director of Sony Australia in an interview with the age.com.au

10) "We don't care," [asked his opinion of the PS3's competitors]
SCEA boss Kaz Hirai Gamespot interview at Tokyo games show

18) "Q: So are you saying that not having an exclusive on Grand Theft Auto doesn't hurt you at all?
A: No, I don't think it hurts us. No, I really don't."
Sony of America CO-COO Jack Tretton in an interview with the street.com

LMAO what an idiot, you just owned yourself, the only one where they mention microsoft is in saying they are not a technology company.
GUESS WHAT, he's not lying, 33% RROD proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that MS has no business making consoles. If it was a game company that depended on profit, the 360 would have put them UNDER a year and a half ago. THAT'S THE REALITY OF THE 360 you dumb moronic bot.

Pain3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Its ALWAYS From M$ FLACKYS FIRST!

Sony flacks are like Huh? its our turn again? man....

Its ALWAY's M$ Flackys Shane/Don or what ever Flacky first.

Do they have a routine or a Order who's turn is it at M$ ?

M$ Flacky just Insult with Crap like this, Sony just well Dismiss's so its not really insulting. kinda like Nin just says Nothing But we rolling in $$$$$ press comments....

Snukadaman3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

ROFLMAO..they both say idiotic sh*t....you want to pick at the quotes i found be my guest...what a clever use of RROD...you owned yourself coming here acting like sony does not say stupid sh*t...dumb ass moron.

Yes Microsoft engineers are genius, at least they can tell that Xbox 360 will sell more software because their console has sold more.

Jamie Foxx3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

360 is selling less hardware on a yearly basis-fact
ps3 has sold more hardware each year-fact
360 is getting outsold worldwide since start of 2008-fact
ps3 has the most 1st part of any console-fact
360s lead has been cut from 10-5million in ONE year-fact
to say software sales will be higher at the start of this console race is silly-fact
microsoft-have alot of fear recently to keep coming out with these retarded comments recently-fact

hardmetal3401d ago

First, it was the hardware and the software worldwide.
Second, it was the hardware in america and the software worldwide.
Now, nothing about america, but it's still software worldwide.

Outstanding attitude.

MikeGdaGod3401d ago

MS makes me laugh

ha...ha...ha...

socomnick3401d ago

I could care less if MS ends up being 3rd, 2nd ,or first. As long as they keep shelling out money for exclusives, providing the best online service, and delivering on the best console features I will continue to be a happy camper.

KRUSSIDULL3401d ago

Good said bubbles for you.

Wii60Fan3401d ago

of something called ATTACH RATE? It is a known fact that more people buy games on the 360 than other consoles.

shazam3401d ago

but if they keep losing console wars like this then they will no longer be able to keep buying up exclusives and have the best online.

jaysquared3401d ago

Doesn't matter if they come in third they will still make a console next gen because they are now making money on the 360.. M$ is now a seasoned veteran in the video game industry and is poised to take #1 spot..

socomnick3401d ago

Yea MS does not need to win this generation. In their mind they already have they are making profit on their system now. I think they succeeded thus far greatly. They managed to strip the ps3 of any 3rd party exclusives it has ever had. It now has amazing Japanese dev support.
They are delivering all the best jrpgs and w rpgs in one console. If your a rpg fan you have to get an xbox 360.

Hububla3401d ago

If what you state is true then how come the Japanese who are the world most fanatic RPG fans.. wont even look at the 360 never mind utter its name!

tatotiburon3401d ago

jamie fox do you want some facts??, ok Halo 3 sold in ONE day what MGS4 took a whole month...get it?...yes in hardware PS3 outsold Xbox 360, but in software Xbox 360 still the king or you have in your list any PS3 game that sold better than any xbox 360 game?, please let me know

LJWooly3401d ago

Lots of sales on the first day has nothing to do with anything except hype and marketing.

tatotiburon3401d ago

1.12:

whatever you say man, xbox 360 games still sells better, and that is a fact.

Lyan3401d ago

Hububla, the Japanese culture/consumers shy away from the xbox primarily out of the fact that it is a foreign console above all other reasons. Look up xenophobia and japan and you'll find many ethics based arguments over their tendencies to shun foreign companies. Sometimes it is the companies fault for trying to use western marketing dynamics to enter their market, but overall it is primarily from their disdain towards anything that is not native.

mikeslemonade3400d ago

Because Microsoft lost system sales last year and will lose by a even bigger margin this year. You can have software sales because it doesn't matter. System sales matter the most.

Blaine3400d ago

And you think the 360 dominates the US market because it's a superior product to the PS3? Huh, I hardly think that's the reason. More likely it's a misplaced sense of patriotism. So don't tell me the 360 is at a disadvantage because the Japanese market won't support it when the American market clearly supports the 360 more only because it's "American". And the US market is much bigger than the Japanese one.

The gaming GOD3401d ago

All sony has to do is get within the range of about 3 million consoles under the 360 (they are currently at about 5) to beat MS in software sales worldwide

I say that because they software sales in Europe are already better on the ps3 and japan is a no brainer.

So once they are about 3 million under the 360 install base in the U.S. you'll see Sony over the 360 in software sales

SL1M DADDY3401d ago

Remember? For MS it's all about NPD and those North American sales. As long as they are outselling Sony in terms of software week to week in North America alone, they will continue to stick their fingers in their ears, run around and cry out "we outsell Sony!, We outsell Sony!!!"...

Why do I get the feeling that MS is scared?

TheExodus3401d ago

MS isn't scared, they're terrified. Their desktop OS monopoly is crumbling, nobody wanted a Zune & now gamers are choosing Wii over 360!

JasonXE3401d ago

i have a zune, 360, and xp. They are all great!!

Btw check vg worldwide this week.

The gaming GOD3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

Why?

We already seen the stats they have that show 360 sales higher this week (due to NA price break) But the question is how much are those numbers exaggerated.

Remember,vgchartz had Sony losing to the 360 in January and February as well. Yet when the NPD numbers came around, it was the 360 that had lost. And not by small numbers either

And even last month when the ps3 killed the 360, vgchartz upgraded the 360 numbers while downsizing the ps3 numbers to make the loss not look as bad as it really was.

So all in all, state for people to see vgchartz doesn't really account for much

TheExodus3401d ago

Check vgchartz? Is anyone surprised that sales doubled for a clearance sale? Question I have is how many of those new 360 owners will be on a first name basis with their UPS guy by this Christmas?
