VG247: Michael Pachter just posted his hardware sales estimates for August.
Stop reading there.
Lol he's always wrong but he keeps going.
His predictions are worthless.
Ohhh...dangit. This means the 360 won this month. :( I hope Pachter is actually right this time around. :( 12
With the PS3 and 360 numbers he has been wrong for like the past 4 months...except for MGS month. I am going to make a prediction based on his that the 360 will outsell PS3 in August by a margin of 1000 units and Msoft will have a big party with a press release talking about number of achievements unlocked in the past 24hrs, DLC no one cares about bla bla bla yada yada ya
Jump on the Bandwagon SAY WHAT? U already did that. awwwww.
it means 360 will outsell the ps3 and maybe wii also
if the X360 beats the Wii on sales i stop commenting on N4G for ever.
Please let it happen console gods.
VGchartz is more correct than Patcher. There is noway the gap is only 20,000 it should be 60,000 units atleast because it's been proven that the PS3 outsells the 360 by 20,000 units every week in America.
360 sold more. Is this guy ever right? I've been following the Amazon vs NPD trends and it is way more accurate the patcher. Considering the 360 just made it to the top 30 in the last couple weeks... I doubt it sold more last month, or will sell more this month until its able to topple the PS3. As far as hardware goes, i think its too late for MS to think that they are going to some how reinvigorate sales to a level that runs contrary to the fact that their market was hit early and maxed out within 3 years. Lets take bets! I say PS3 this month, and next month as well as the rest of the year.
but my "analysis" says no... he's never right.
He's always right ... after the numbers come out. Funny thing is, I just checked, and so am I.
I say PS3 comes out on top in August
I hope you get paid like he does lol.
there's next to no chance for Xbox selling more next month, we go from Socom, straight through to little big planet and then on to motorstorm. The sales are gonna really rack up for PS3 in october.
Just like VG. Patcher lately always predicts the opposite.
If Pachter says 360 wins, you can bet PS3 did. Happens every month.
Damn it Pachter! stop jinking the ps3 said the 360 sold more. EDIT: @ Mike Bowden Read cmrbe post.
He says PS3 sold 225k and 360 sold 200k
what anything sells its not like they are going to NOT make games for the systems that are on the market now! even if games would be better if PS3 only
I saw what you did there...slick! -Black
That means PS3 lost...Pachter is always wrong =(
ha beat me to it...yeah this more or less makes the 360 outselling the PS3 in the US for august official...
Did anybody even bother to look at the numbers!? Every weeks, I see the PS3 selling higher than 360 in America, Japan, and everywhere else. Just last week, the PS3 sold a total of 173k and Xbox 103k.
The PS3 won but Pachter is right by accident. Michael Pachter = the VGChartz of Wall Street.
no i think patcher is just getting smarter ; )
Tell ya what, pull 2 randomly selected numbers from your a**.... Probably just as accurate as Pachter.
Give up Patcher...I think he's only been right when it's the most obvious thing "On June 12th, 2008, more PS3's were sold then X360's".
that would be messed up if he is right this time. but i hope he is wrong like he always is.
Price cut WHAT?! LOL.
wow this guy is right this time!! amazing!! If any of you have followed the weekly sales then you know he is right.
His magic 8-ball finally works!
Micro$oft outta money to bribe Pachter. Now look whats changed his mind.
So in other words, 360 outsold ps3 this time around?
I predict....*drum rolls*: That whatever Pachter says is wrong :P
And Unless he says 360 won, he's not, not wrong.
Congrats to microsoft on beating the PS3 by a 2 to 1 margin in August.
A coin whould do a better job than this guy...
I predict the PS3 sold 5 units, the 360 sold 4 units, and the Wii will sell 15 units.
Ahhh... not Patcher again. But in complete honesty, I do think that the PS3 outsold the 360 in August as well. The PS3 has almost always been in the Top 10 on Amazon in the Video Games section pretty much since the MGS4 80GB PS3 bundles were released and I can't even recall ever seeing a 360 SKU in the Top 10 at all. I think that the $399 price point was the "sweet spot" for a lot of people wanting a PS3 because ever since Sony brought out the 40GB PS3 for $399 last year, the PS3 has been doing pretty well.
it will be tight if 360 wins it will be less then 15k units i feel unless the price drop really shoock things up
Is this one of those so called "experts" people like to bring into situations? I've noticed that usually so called experts are not very open minded and tend to really believe they know what they are talking about. -Pachter is almost right even if he is wrong, because he's one console away from the right prediction. Maybe that's what keeps him going :] EDIT: BUBBLES O0O0 to all posters that made me laugh!
360 beat PS3. =P
Does it F***** matter ? seriously
No doubt MGs4 working over time for the Sony camp. I can see no other reason the sales would be that high in the summer months, no less. Just imagine, if you will, the holiday rush with sales already this high for the ps3. I can see a hell of a good year for Sony. Ps3, dead; hahahahahahahahahahah, yeah right.
NPD sales are out this Thursday, can't wait for it. But I can't believe it's on 9/11... oh well. I pretty much know what to expect.
That means 360 won this month... DAMNIT
...Not him again. :/ But hey, he could be right. :D
patcher might be right for the first time.
did you ppl know the ps3 sucks? cause it does.. case you didnt know that.. just a little fyi..
did you guys know the 360 has a huge adaptor. http://img.engadget.com/com...
WTF? is that you could literally hit some one with that and kill them...YIKES!!!
not as much as your mom does.....damn the things she can do.
yeah, she is AMAZING!!!
Oh dear, that huge adapter. I looked at my brother's 360 and wondered why in the blue hell a 360 would have a huge adapter like that when no other system on the market has it.
god damn it pachter....god damn it. curse the ps3 why dont you
360 still beating on PS3, having a 3 to 1 userbase advantage in North American, and still cuts price before PS3. PS3 is getting stomped. I really want to see them NOT cut price this year. Lets see what all the crazy PS3 fans will say.
I hate copy and pasting all the time but there is no other choice...why don't certain "types" EVER come up with a good explanation (more like excuse) about this point? People like to say the PS3 is 3rd but when you REALLY look at the markets/numbers it shows something TOTALLY different Wii- 1st Europe 1st Japan 1st America PS3- 2nd Europe 2nd Japan 3rd America 360- 2nd America 3rd Europe 3rd Japan Wii = 1st with all 1st places PS3 = 2nd with 2 / 2nd places & 1 3rd (but gaining every month) 360 = 3rd with 2 / 3rd places and 1 / 2nd (losing ground every month & dead RROD 360's being counted as working consoles = funny #'s ~ FACT) Just because MS "might" have more overall consoles sold than the PS3 (in one market) doesn't mean it's really ahead. That is the truth and that is the only proper way to look at it. If a person can't grasp that nor understand it then they are biased or just don't think other countries "count" in that way...which is a very limited way of thinking.
ok silver, so the 360 has a big _ _ _ _.. but that doesnt change the fact that the ps3 sucks and is in 3rd. and only has mgs4 to play err i mean watch.. matter a fact the ps3 sucks on that big _ _ _ _ i know i know " but we catchin up" ok buddy well see you in 2015 if that ............................. .............................. . EDIT no i didnt feel like going harder, just wanted to say it sucks just cause it does. its not that hard for sony to improve on its sales since it couldnt sell 100,000 in a month last year remember?! thats why they had a price drop after like 3months lol.. you know, you sony fanatics seem to forget sh!t real quick when its a sony fuc up but when its a 360 4get about it we hear it forever.

i know its open zone but can you come a bit harder then that the PS3 sucks! Did u know that? what is that kid? Thats so weak Air1 here is all you need to know The 360 has sold less every year since launch The PS3 has sold more in its 2nd year then its 1st! It will sell more in its 3rd year then its 2nd you follow i doubt it because your a fool
Actually he is right this time, but not fully. ps3 is 240,000 360 is 200,000
PS3 lost in august.
ROFLMAO. how soon we forget he claimed GTA4 would sell 10 times as many copies on PS3rd. poor droids!
