Why dis3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

I was guessing Germany! would be next Dam!!!

The losing team always yell the loudest(spin, excuses cherrypicking markets).

We'll get down to State by State sales in the US before this is all over despite overall figures :)

And this is exactly why your comment is full of exclamation marks :)

Why dis3598d ago

PS3 outsold the 360 in Kentucky :)

POGfinder3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

can u name me a country where x360 is doing well besides UK and USA??

the scenario is same all over the world except Uk and Usa. In UK though ps3 and x360 are neck and neck despite huge price diparity

also to reply to you France is the second biggest gaming market in europe which is the biggest gaming market for consoles

also u have seen that PAL makes up 50% of worldwide sales and US is 30/35% i guess.

This kid's comments is just hilarious.

can you show me any x360 game which looks marginally good compared to Uncharted 1

I am not even bringing up Killzone 2.

also Warhound looks like 8888 and Mass effect 2 will be multiplat since EA dont make exclusives . as they are not in the position to make exclusives

dont brag that much

x360 could be like 25m-27m sold worldwide at 200$ price tag vs like 20m-22m ps3s at 400$

you already know that x360 is a loser in this battle

imagine what happens when ps3 hits 300$

Rather than getting excited at Fake MS numbers why dont you see the real ones now

Germany,italy, middle east, sweden, finland ,india, china ---any region in the world except USA will show the same trend wii>ps3> x360

However ps3 and wii positions might be interchanged when ps3 reaches 300$.

same cant be said for x360 which is already the cheapest console in the world

Antan3597d ago

Ah hello POG! Look everybody, POG has a new account! LMFAO! Looking through his history is blatantly clear. Look at "POG`s" posts and "Why Dis" post, and you will clearly see the scriblings are the same.....my god POG, surely you can do better!?!

lol.

mint royale3597d ago

first off the 1 million EU lead doesn't come from MS it is confirmed by GFK too.

As for France the ps3 has a 100K lead but has been outsold by the 360 since september. The same situation has occured in Germany, Spain and Italy (where the 360 somehow managed to outsell the wii for a few weeks).

GFK if anything but bullshit on sony's claim they are 300K ahead in the EU.

And if you believe the 360 is only selling well in the UK and the US then you are beyond reasoning with. MS sales have increased greatly from last generation - they have never been this successful. Thats not to say the ps3 isn't doing well. It is. Isn't it good to have 3 consoles selling very well?

And if you think the ps3 has a chance of matching the wii then you are even more beyond reasoning. You think if sony cuts price then nintendo or MS won't? The only reason sony didn't respond to MS's pricecut this year is because they really couldn't have afforded too.

DaSaintFan3596d ago

Why dis... you and Jokes pretty much defined why this article is "relevant" in comparing numbers in the European Union..

"Finland represents only 6% of the total European sales"

There are how many countries in the EU? 21 total, so that 6% would be above what the 'average' EU country number would be. (4.2% (per country, appx?)), and if you take out hte UK's 30% (I think that's the number right?) that brings the total down.. to about 3% per country as average. So Finland is double the EU average.

Does it mean that any one console has a huge advantage over another? Nope... it just means that you can take any numbers/any region and turn them one way or another, as you see fit.

charts all over the world except US will show same wii> PS3>>> x360

also Pal is the biggest gaming market in the world if u dont know

SONY sold 60m ps2s in the pal region which is now EVEN bigger

pal = 50% of total console gaming market

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

The xBox 360 is FIN(n)ISH-ED in Europe ;)

I thought the U.S.of.A was the only country in the World tho(according to n4g.com)
;-D

Europe HATES xBox 360
Japan HATES xBox 360
I HATE xBox 360;)

I wonder when the REAL OFFICIAL World-wide Console sales for 2008 come out???

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

Excellent.The intelligent Finnish nation is experiencing true next gen gaming only on Playstation 3.

POGfinder3598d ago

well thats proven to be FAKE as well

PS3 has a 300k lead over x360 in France . same in all other regions of eu except UK

http://www.n4g.com/News-257...

I cant believe that some people still believe in MS BS

The lead is much bigger in Spain and about the same in Germany and itlay --other 4 regions of eu (significant).

InMyOpinion3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

"The intelligent Finnish nation is experiencing true next game gaming only on Playstation 3"

Next game gaming sounds bad lol! "Yeah, this was really fun...NEXT!!"

edit: @Lord Shuhei Yoshida - Nice stealth edit ;)

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3598d ago

Microsoft lying about news is as obvious as every 360 getting in danger of experiencing RROD within the next few years

POGfinder3598d ago

doesnt matter

you can see real NUMBERS here. not some fake numbers posted by MS which got people excited for no reason

French YTD and LTD here

http://www.n4g.com/News-257...

yep PS3 has a 300k lead here and should be the same in every other eu region except UK. where is MS now?

N4PS3G3598d ago

what fake numbers are you talking about...france does not equal all european sales

and it was reported by GfK Chart-Track not MS on december 2008

"latest numbers from GfK Chart-Track put Microsoft's Xbox 360 sales at about 1 million units ahead of Sony's Playstation 3 in the European territories of France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom"

is chart- track wrong now?

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3598d ago

@POGfinder

MS must be handing tissues to the 1up screwed staff that lost their jobs after they awoke the wrath of the Sony empire.The MDF is re-grouping after losing the format war,console war 2007,console war 2008,E3,Leipzig,TGS and CES twice.I hear G4 and Gametrailers are planning another funeral for their favorite "console"

POGfinder3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

those numbers came from eurogamer another agency of MS

Real french numbers right here

http://www.n4g.com/News-257...

france represents the second biggest gaming market in europe. almost as big as UK. also x360's fate is same in spain, germany ,italy . In spain ps3 overtook x360 in lTD hw sales in the first month of its rlease. In germany and italy too ps3 is ahead by a considerable margin. In arab world which is the biggest region in the pal region ps3 has a 80% + marketshare

U would have to be a huge fool to even believe that x360 ever sold in the arabian states after iraq war. MS surprisingly added Middle east in their pr statement. X360s selling in muslim world is the same as muslims eating pork = thing that will never happen especially after iraq war

German, italian, and numbers of other regions will be posted too and all will show that ps3 has the advantage

add in Arabian numbers and you have ps3 over x360 by a million in PAL

did u look at French numbers?
http://www.n4g.com/News-257...

why so impatient?

Numbers of other regions will be posted very soon. very very soon

N4PS3G3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

I'm not talking about French numbers ..i'm talking the whole eruopean console life span numbers ..Oh i forgot ...MS brought Eurogamer and Chart-Track numbers were all fake and invented by MS and Eurogamer and GFK chart track never cared to clean their name with all this outrageously fake numbers.. woah man ..you outdid your self with your conspiracy theories this times..you are nuts

btw ..this are 2008 sales... Gfk Chart-Track reported Reported a 1 million installed user base lead in the European territories of France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom since the release of both consoles..not only 08

Eurogamer another agency of MS? LOL ..don't be so close minded pal

Eurogamer sponsors Playstation's HOME

After the sale numbers were posted

"Sony declined to comment on the GfK Chart-Track figures when we contacted the company late last week."

wonder why?

Chart-Track numbers are not wrong man ..just accept it and be happy gamer

POGfinder3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

PS3 NOW has a 1 m lead over x360 in the pal region

i told you that i will post numbers from all regions as soon as i get them.

Eurogamer gave fable 2 a 10/10 .so do i go on

also eurogamer might have meant just UK only since x360 only sells in UK

as i said all charts will be posted. be patient

but it will be ugly .

for instance ps3 and x360 hw sales differences could be very huge since ps3 overtook x360's ltd in the first month of its release there

all charts will be posted. have some tissue paper to wipe out your tears

dont forget to look at the french chart which has been posted

http://www.n4g.com/News-257...

@n4gps3

MS claimed that they lead in middle east too. Now even a 5 year old kid knows that its utter BS as x360 barely exists there . As i said have patience as more charts will be posted . do take some tissue papers to wipe out your tears

GFK never reported anything. Eurogamer reported BS which is now proven to be FAKE

ALSO

Those are not numbers from my ass. Those are from FRENCH national sales tracking company and GFK. No company pulls BS like MS ---eg claiming that x360 is outselling ps3 in middle east which is a joke of the millenium

N4PS3G3598d ago

Fable 2 score has nothing to do with this and shows how dumb you are

and you are facing the worst case of denial in history ...the article is not wrong

it clearly states ..let me refresh your mind

"Chart-Track reported Reported a 1 million installed user base lead in the European territories of France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom "

"Chart-Track reported Reported a 1 million installed user base lead in the European territories of France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom "

"Chart-Track reported Reported a 1 million installed user base lead in the European territories of France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom "

you could post all the charts in the world man ... you've been banned from this site over 40 times ..get some credibility first

GfK Chart-Track > You
