NPD to date for 2008: Wii whitewashes while 360 and PS3 thrash it out

VG247: In the wake of July's NPD figures, we thought we'd look at just how well the 'big three' have fared over the last seven months by tallying all hardware data for 2008.

We all know Nintendo is having a fantastic year, but just how well is Wii doing?

Microsoft and Sony are fighting their own high-def battle, but how big is the margin between the two, and who has the lead?

interesting !

Mike Bowden3692d ago

It surprised me too, yeah.

Microsoft_Spokesman3692d ago

"This figure puts Microsoft’s console firmly at the bottom of the next-gen pile. In fact, if we take every device into consideration, Microsoft’s great green hope has sold just over 400,000 more than PS2, and that’s without January’s figure for the last-gen Sony machine included."

LOL.

LastPlace-tation 3rd3692d ago

LastPlace-tation 3rd IS THE BIG BAD KING!!! HAHAAHHAHAHAHAAHAHAAA

LastPlace-tation 3rd is staying in last place for a LONG time!!!

HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA HHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH HAHAHA

Xbox 360 can start winning again at any time!!! Price cut coming in September to keep the LastPlace-tation 3rd in last FOREVER!!!(August NPD will also have the 20GB pricecut and new 60GB sku.... your gonna start losing again desperate Sony braindead Droids!!!)

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!

It's going to be there for years more, either way!! ahhahahahahahhaa

LastPlace-tation 3rd until 2014!!!!! hahahahahhaha

pwnsause3692d ago

I thought the LastPlace-tation 3rd was secondplace-station 2nd because of last month because of NPD results, which put the secondplace- 360 was lastplace 3rd60. lol dont fail yourself, but keep trying.

Gam713692d ago

er last playstation 3rd
you have points but you put then in such an idiotic way you look a prat.

You sound exactly like the droids you're mocking.

also pwnsause
playstation is last.
wii-30mil
360-20mil
ps3-mil

and ausgust will have ps3 as 3rd in ww hw sales so you should check your comments before you post them.

Jandre023692d ago

Didnt the 360 already have a price drop in July? We all saw how that turned out...lol.

Also remember that this is Blu-Rays very first holiday season as the HD standard, which means with every HDTV sold, stores like Best Buy and Walmart will give the PS3 free advertising.

And, last but not least, people still aren't considering the fact that Sony might drop the price of the PS3 with the new 80gb. Its a newer, most likely cheaper model to manufacture, so dropping the price will lose them money per console, but they have Resistance 2, LBP, MAG, Socom,Killzone 2 and InFamous all coming within this fiscal year which will offset any major hardware loses if they sell well.

$299 PS3+Blu-Ray+Best marketable lineup in the upcoming year= Wii level numbers. The 360 never stood a chance this year, which I have been saying since December. Sure it was appearing to sell well when the PS3 was dying last year, but it doesn't have the demand necessary to keep up with the PS3 in full swing. PS3 will outsell the 360 by 1,000,000+ in America alone from October to December, and will catch the 360 WW in total hardware sales by May of next year.

LastPlace-tation 3rd3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

Sorry bro.

I love ripping the delusional droids a good one.

HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAH AHA!!!!!!

Xbox 360 is going to win August NPD BTW. Guaranteed. It probablly will win beyond that also, Microsoft is going to cut the 360's price...its price has hardly dropped since launch.

Microsoft wants to win. HAHAHHAHAA you droids think it's over and you're going to be in second by next year. hahahhahahahaa

LastPlace-tation 3rd is gonna get DESTROYED!!! HHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

Serve you master, Droids!!!

PLAY B3HIND

Wait and see Droid. NO IT WON'T. : ) PS3 is not selling 6 million more a year. Xbox 360 is about to get ALOT cheaper also. PS3rd just one NPD for ONE month....only 20,000....360 won Japan. PS3rd is going no where!!!! Keep dreaming Last Place droid!!!

HAHAHHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA LastPlace-tation 3rd!!

Xbox 360 can still win.

Let's wait and see.

pwnsause3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

lol, im pretty sure that by next year it will be ontop of the 360. calculate it yourself. but since im dealing with bots who dont know their calculus, then i would just let them dream. see ya. XD

Oh, and laststation 3rd, i saved that statement in my notepad so when the NPD results say the oppisite, i will pull it up lolololol

Jandre023692d ago

Except for 1 month.

In Europe the 360, already at the price that is rumored to occur in the US since BEFORE GTAIV, is still outsold by a large margin by the PS3.

Japan the 360 won one month with a drought of big games for the PS3 and the biggest, and most likely last, system selling 360 game in the country this generation.

The 360 has just flat out lost WW every month this year. The US is the 360's best region by far, and its only managed to outsell the PS3 one month! It will win August, ill agree to that, but only because the PS3 is clearing its 40gb out of the channel. If the PS3 does respond to this 360 price drop there is no chance at all for the 360 this fall. (That rhymes, im sorry)

callahan093692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

I smell some serious delusion and possible insanity here today.

@ LastPlace-tation 3rd: settle down.
@ Everyone: I'm astonished at the ridiculous fanboy tripe I'm seeing here. Unbelievable. Get a grip, people, seriously.

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

Er didn't know the xBox 360 was High-def!!! It don't look it!!! ;-D
You learn something new on this each day!!!;)

Hmm...or does 'xBox 360 High-Def' stand for 'xBox 360 High-Death Rate'!!! ;-D
(Fire or RRoD!)

+Thought they have been Discontinuing the xBox 360 Worldwide to???
;-D
It came out before 'Wii'[TOY] + PS3???
It should be selling more than the 'Wii'[TOY]by now???
Why not???
+It's cheaper than the 'Wii'[TOY]now???
Why is the xBox 360 not selling more for???
WHY???
WHY???
WHY???

Gam713692d ago

erm when did the wii first come out
nov 19th 2006
ps3 nov 11th 2006
so by your logic the ps3 should be outselling the wii.
why isn't it?
why is it last?

Sorry i just laughed at how i completely shown you up then.
that is an epic fail by you. You tried to be clever but the point you made was used against the console your defending.
I'm having to explain it to him because he a bit thick.

PS3"[DVD player] came out before 'Wii'???
It should be selling more than the 'Wii' by now???

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

Well to me;) Hi-DEF sounds like Hi-DEATH!!! ;-D

Well i'm talking about Home Consoles under your T.V getting on Fire!!! ;-D
God if i started bringing up Micro$ofts Mistakes and Failures i'll be here all YEAR!!! ;-D

Well erm the Wii cost £179.99 when it came out i think(U.K price)

and the PS3 cost £425.00 when it came out i know(U.K price)
(so the PS3 cost £245.01!!!MORE than the Wii!!!)

That's why it's not sold as much as the Wii. Simple really!!!;)
That your answer to your Question.

+Now the PS3 is £299.99 and the Wii is £179.99(U.K)
(Still a lot more for now)

The xBox 360 in U.K is £149.99???(Think it's cheaper in the U.S)
The Wii £179.99???
I don't understand WHY;) the xBox 360 isn't selling the same as the Wii for??? It's cheaper???
It's Hmm perfect?!?!(as the xBots on here say???)
I don't get it???

If PS3 was £149.99!!!!!!!???????!!!! !!! ;-P
FUNK-ME!!!;) It would be up there with the Wii! Easy!!!;-P
(And everyone knows it!)

+The PS3 is a GAMES Console + A Hi-Def;)Media player!!! ;-P
(It does it ALL!!!) ;-P

SO??? If the xbox 360 is £149.99 and the Wii is £179.99(U.K)
WHY;)OH WHY? is it not Killing the Wii for??? That's my main Question.

You haven't shown me up at all!!!;-D
+The Real 'Sir Ken' is showing up Micro$oft YET AGAIN!!! ;-D
I'm happy about my 1st comment thanks!;)

OH!NO!!! ;-D The Phantom Disagree R*tard is out again!!! ;-D
Disagree as much as you like R*tard! It WON'T change anything!!! ;-D
Your Console is dying...bye bye...nice knowing you...NOT... ;-D

Gam713692d ago

wow, sounds like you're on the defensive.

so your saying the reason the ps3 isn't saying is because of the price. But i thought it was a bargain and it doesn't matter about price because the ps3 would sell even without games.
guess not huh.

oh and if you're going to quote uk prices get it right. the arcade is £150 and thats for children and families so it doesn't matter about that. yes you will be able to get the new 60gb for £179 on offer so expect that to sell in bucket loads.

i noticed you was only talking about consoles under the tv that catch fire. well i'm talking about all products made by you beloved (you do realise its only a company and they dont care about as proven buy the lies you lap up) sony that explode or catch fire.
don't forget in the uk its wii and 360.
I think the ps3 is selling here?
lol you should have picked a country that the ps3 sells in that the 360 doesn't when making your poor arguments like the us... oh ok like japa... hmm ital... erm norway?

if i had to go on about all the mistakes sony make i'd be here for the rest of their 10yr plan.
i'll post a couple to do only with the ps3. to include the psp ps2 tv laptops phones etc i'd be here til the ps5 if they make it that far
http://uk.gamespot.com/page...

once again i show up the ps3 fail sir ken kun-tagi-whatshisname.

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3691d ago (Edited 3691d ago )

On the defensive??? Nah i'm cool;)
Nothing a xBot says on this effect me one bit!!! ;-D

The xBox 360 SHOULD be beating the Wii by now???
But it's not??? Strange???
Er yeah of course i'm saying that about the price. If the PS3 was cheaper when it came out it would be selling loads more. So the 'Wii' has millions of games then??? No it hasn't really.
+The price does matter to a lot of people. You will see in time!;)

+Yeah the PS3 is a bargain for what you get!!! I think. People spend £400+ on Mobile phones they lose in a week!!!
;-D
+Yeah xBox 360 has a few more games, but it came out a year before the PS3???+What you can get on the xBox 360 you can get for your P.C!!! ;-D Whats the point of owning one??? God knows.

+The PS3 is selling well??? Even without the so-called no games???
Er there has been LOADS of games for it this year???

Don't know why you love Micro$oft so much, they treat there customers like sh*t+charging you to use the xBox 360 everyday!!! ;-D
i.e xBox LIVE.
I play my internet games for FREE. Never had a problem with PSN to;)
+SONY's mistakes can be fixed. Micro$oft don't seem to care about RRoD(one of my friend has a xBox 360 and had it twice+Other people i know)

+I like SONY they make Quality Gear(You shouldn't believe all you read on the internet!!!Mainly LIES about SONY)

+Your last bit...WHAT?????????? ;-D
The PS3 hasn't failed!!! ;-D Man you are BLIND!!!(No offence!!!)
;-D The xBox 360 is a failure!!! ;-D
Once again Gammy71178976 whatever your called, you xBots talk cr*p!!! ;-D
(No offence!!!) ;)

p.s Lets see if the xBox 360 sells more than the Wii when the 60GB xBox 360 version comes out. It should beat the Wii??? If not WHY???
;-D
+You can have the UK(not for long) + the US(not for long) sales, i'll have the rest of the Worlds sales!!! ;-D +i thought the PS3 sold more anyway in July??? Oh well...

against 360 !
If thats the way shouldn't it be 360, pc's and mobile devises running windows & zune ?

Mike Bowden3692d ago

It's not against 360. It's just showing how small Sony's userbase of three consoles is in comparison with Nintendo's 2.

Voiceofreason3692d ago

Its hardware comparisons MS doesnt make PC, they just make Windows and most of the other programs that come with it. As far as Zune goes it cant be doing that good since we hear nothing about it.

Zerodin3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

No more "Sony family" vs Wii here.
Looks like SDF is gonna have to eat it this time.
Edit: Oh wait, this is N4G...I get the two confused, so many droids ya know!

TheHater3692d ago

if there is so many "droids" on this site, then why do Power of Green, Zuke, PP and others like them have more than 5 bubbles?

Gam713692d ago

and why does nasim and sir ken etc have more than 8 accounts whislt the biggest fails have more than 7 bubbles.

Theres a lot of hate on this site. Want a conversation go elsewhere.

PopEmUp3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

and see for yourself of who is a droid, he been trashing ps3 thread almost everywhere, this guy just don't make perfect sense in anyway at at all

back on topic

well to me it look like this

PS2 vs Wii
Ps3 vs xbox 360
PSP vs DS

Jandre023692d ago

No one(at least I hope no one) is delusional enough to think the PS3>Wii in hardware sales. The Wii is the fasting selling console in history.
But the PS3 is still beating the 360 in the US after the 360 had a price drop.

What this means, clearly, is that the 360 is dying in terms of demand. It was, and still is, a console for Halo fans with a few people who actually thought the 360 was the future so converted from Sony to Microsoft.

This is a two horse race come next year. The 360 is just a "me too" console, that tries to win over fans with things like 1 month exclusivity (wtf is that?) and buying a chance to play Sony's third party exclusives. Its the Hyundai of the gaming world, while the PS3 is the Mercedes. We all know what would happen to Hyundai if Mercedes would match its price point and keep all of its luxury features at the same time...

Genesis53692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

MS is having a heck of a time trying to hold a lead with a 1 year head start. What would have happened if the had launched at the same time. No wonder they rushed that thing out the door. Or they wouldn't even be in this race.

Maddens Raiders3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

just how many therapy offices, clinics, hospices, hospitals, and 24 hour fitness centers are purchasing Wii's in a volume like manner.

Does anyone know if NPD represents individual consumer numbers only, or do they take into account all purchases, such as "bulk" purchases from commercial enterprises?

PS360PCROCKS3692d ago

Actually let's see my apartment complex has a Wii in the leasing center. and the only other place I have seen consoles is at the massive children's hospital here in Colorado. Every room has a xbox 360 in it, and in the all the play areas they have Wii's.

ElementX3692d ago

Actually, most of the world doesn't have official numbers. Only Japan, North America, and I think England and Germany have numbers. France and Spain don't have official stats. I could be wrong, though.

Mao3691d ago

My Wii is hitting the used-bin this week in favor of the 360. You know, a console that actually has good games and not just shovelware. Nintendo really has dissapointed me this gen. Totally angry with the Wii and it's gimmicky first party exclusives, last-gen presentation and terrible 3rd party support. PS360. Now THAT'S the way to go.

Nintendo doesn't deserve these sales from the soccer moms. Stupid non-traditional gaming market pushing the change in the gaming environment. Great, now devs have an excuse to make garbage! *sigh*

i cant help but think with the power of the playstation brand and blu-ray playback it should be higher ! Wii and 360 must have taken alot of business from them ! What do you guys think ?

Gam713692d ago

given how the ps3 was supposed to destroy the 360 this year (march 29th according to nasim but he's a nonce so everyone can ignore that) this has to be disappointing.
Thank god they had mgs4 or who knows what would have happened.

PoSTedUP3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

sony is happy with these numbers and they are doing really good for coming out at 600$ ya know.

the wii came out cheaper than a console last generation of course its gunna sell ridiculously well. 250$ compared to 500-600$.

i dont know about "destroy" but ps3 is outselling 360 so far this year even when its cheaper than the WII in EU ya know. october is gunna be another great month for ps3, LBP and socom.

PopEmUp3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

well speaking about PS3 owners, I think they're quite happy in fact, you should really consider to take a look at Microsoft and see how poor there gaming business have goes compare to Windows/pc market, as you see they have numerous strategy to get the 360 price down just so they can ware down ps3 momentum, but just look at their world wide sale it's pretty obvious they loosing little by little in sale, but those will be count and the margin will grow.

About their price cut in Europe, we thought/ or should I say they (Microsoft)thought that would rise their sale up to par with the PS3, but instead it bring their sale down even further. For now they seem to be doing quite a good job to competing with PS3 in US, but we all know they got US as their home turf so it pretty obvious they will perform better than PS3, but if not it a game over for 360, and nasim will be laughing all the way to the bank and POG will be crying till noon of the next day

Gam713692d ago

and october will be a great month with fable 2.
nov will be amazing with GoW2

ms is making money over fist with the hw and software sales.
something sony cant compete with.

ive said it before. look at the market share and revenue for both companies.

ms is in a good position and you know it.
also aug will belong to ms going on the first two weeks ww hw sales.

silverchode3692d ago

im guessing you get your info from vgcharts, the same place that said the 360 would beat the ps3 buy 50k+.
