The final numbers are in, and in terms of unit sales, the Wii is the unquestioned winner of the holiday shopping battle, with estimates claiming that Nintendo's console is outselling the PS3 at a rate of two to one, reports The Times Online.
No kidding Nintendo outsold PS3, there as many PS3s. The real question I have is how Nintendo did in sales compared to Microsoft.
Two to one....So if Sony sold 500,000,Nity sold 1mil....I wouldn't call that a slaughter.We all know Nity put out more GC..oops Wii's than PS3's,so wheres the suprise?This is such a smear article....wheres the 360???
Totally agree,that's no surprise because of the production issue of the ps3,two to one a slaughter?Please give me a break,the ps3 is selling very well despite being launch in north america and japan only,while nintendo had a worldwide launch.360 is bleeding.
Worldwide launch vs. Two Territories. No production issues vs. Horrendous production issues. This was totally expected.
How's Microsoft doing? Only a few days from '07, and they still haven't hit their already delayed sales predictions.
sonys fault there wasnt a world launch. so quit trying to act like it wasnt.
The newer stuff they have sucks though...
microsoft are not that far off their predictions, just a few more days to go and we shall see, I reckon 9.5 million total units sold! I think Microsoft have sold a suprising amount of consoles in the last month!
Stop complaining about your lame companies failings. It's their own fault they couldn't launch in Europe. Reap the whirlwind fools.
there are more than twice as much wiis and they are more than 2 times cheaper than the ps3, also there are Wiis available in Europe...so its not a surprise and i think the ps3 is doing well.
Their 10 miilionth unit was shipped the first week of December, so I'm sure final sales tally's will come in in a couple weeks and we'll see that the Xbox 360 has sold 10 MILLION UNITS!!
Actually, Nintendo's sales figures against sony's worldwide is more like 3 or 4 to 1. I believe it's currently at 2 million units sold vs sony's 500,000 to 700,000 units sold.
This will also become clear in a few weeks when official sales statements come from the main office.
Reguardless of some companies fragile sales figures, there's no need to be condisending to the others whom have large sales figures.
where is the link that says 360 has sold nearly 10 mil?? I dont see any and I dont think so eather.. and where is the link that says ps3 have sold that much and nintendo that much, I don't see no numbers in the artical the guy said I think PS3 have sold this and that and wii this and that.. get ya facts right people
Like you ever get anything right...
Is Juevani the moron brother of SSJ or something like that???
What the heck:
Get ya facts... uh spelling right dude. Stop rapping and get back to school is my advice.
More school.Less rap.
This is the closest you're going to get to actual sells figures right now, but they aren't official so don't flame me. This has probably as much validity as nexgenwars.com, which is very little over all.
The thing I find interesting is the e-bay aspect. PS3s are selling for the same or less then retail, where as Wii's are selling for 100 dollars to twice as much on E-Bay. I'm not sure why any one would even bother with a store for a PS3 right now when you can get one off E-Bay for the same price.
Those numbers are totally not right. Sony hasn't even shipped so many PS3's, let alone they sold them.
Wii is about right.
360 sold more then that for sure. I don't know if nexgenwar is more close to the real numbers, but it seems like it. I expect the company's to get to the sales speeches beginning 2007, curious about them also
Not even close to what the companies themselves are saying. Don't even look at this site.
even though if EU got the Ps3 it wont be selling that great, allot of people are fed up with the wait and already got an xbox, only diehards would w8 till march( maybe later).
and even if sony sells more then nintendo, nintendo will always have bigger profit
Nice avatar! I'm glad you like peeing on your SON. I personally don't like to do something as outrageous as that, but if you're into it...
Seriously though...I'm sure your computer has PAINT on it. USE IT!
It's very childish and it makes we want to punch babies...
It's a shame they can't care about gamers like Sony does. You know with the whole overcharging for the Wii and DS and everything...
I haven't seen a Wii or PS3 in stock EVER...and i live in frickin DECATUR, IL!
Sony might be waiting until they can launch a soccer game with the PS3...they know it will sell like CRAZY if it launches with a soccer game in Europe. I seriously doubt this is there technique...but it would be very wise of them to do so.
That, Heavenly Sword, Lair, and Motorstorm should keep us all busy for awhile.
Has the wii sold out everywhere? (don't pretend it has)
Has the ps3 sold out everywhere? i honestly dont know...but i do know a lot of people are waiting for Motorstorm, HS, Lair, and a price drop. They WILL buy it when these things are possible...
My dad played Motorstorm for 2 hours last night...
MY DAD! He hasn't enjoyed a videogame since Centipede. He ALSO, like myself, doesn't think wiisports is realistic enough (DO NOT THINK I'M TALKING ABOUT GRAPHICS) to be that fun... It doesn't feel like you're playing any of those sports.
The article is misleading...like a lot of articles on this site...
4 player family Wii bowling sh|ts on my Xbox 360. (which I sold to some little kid that lives on my street)
Well worth the money is the Wii.
Also LeonSkennedy, You are an ass.
