Comparison of the sales figures of the xbox 360 and playstation 3.
This "report card" is only based off of NPD figures. Seems quite odd to be giving sales information that is missing proper data... Taken from the first article second line ~ "look at the NPD sales data till now to see how they all stack up." Source - http://www.rsigamers.com/ar...
I don't really trust articles like these. Even if the data was worldwide(there are places outside the US funnily enough)when it isn't clear what either Sony or MS make/lose on each Sku what's the point of it? There's confusion over whether MS tally units shipped or, supposedly like Sony(again we don't really know in every nation), those actually out the door at retail-or even how many are new sales or simply replacements for RROD'd consoles. There's too many hands in too many pockets here pulling out loose change then telling us it's the national debt of China. Until there's some indisputable and worldwide figures available wouldn't we be better off avoiding stuff like this and the resulting flamewars altogether? Jeez, even he says some of it's a rough guess-marks for trying but, really, I don't see the point with the paucity of data available.
did u just say that so u could quickly become the first person to comment without reading it?????????
Leader in sales and revenue. one system is the clear winner in before haters....... YES this is sales from NORTH AMERICA nobody cares if its not like that in your town botswanna.
I mean this site is mostly a bunch of europeans... well the 360 fans from this site are and they are always wide eyed for some american sales figures. I dont get it, wheres the national pride?
How about, who cares? We know you'd rather them lie than show the real numbers of Xbox 360 spanking PS3's a$$. LOL @ 2008 Quarter 4. PS3 is getting pwned this generation.
For a start Europe isn't a nation. Secondly the majority of Europe despises each other.
I hope you live in america because if you dont and you track npd charts every month than you are the very definition of a self loathing loser. Just saying.
What does nationality have to do with him look at sales in certain areas. I'm pretty sure I've seen you hang onto Japans sales before.
So european nations all hate each other? What kinda like yankees, mets & boston red sox fans??? Its pretty retarded to be celebrating the sales figures of a game. like really retarded. Killzone 2 should have sold 20 million on day 1 but it didnt so... what now? I think its sad that haters are here in may looking at aprils numbers when the game came out in february. 3 months later these losers are still tracking killzone 2 sales. is that not the saddest thing you ever heard?
Europe has a history of war,all the Major countries and alot of the minor ones have kicked each other in the face at some point in the time line. UK tends to generate alot of the hate though. But that's because we're full of win.
You never seen me hanging on to some japanese sales, man. sorry, wrong guy. the main reason why i try not to get involved in sales numbers and who profiting is because i have my own money to count and i can hardly do that right. I failed math class buddy. I do believe nationality is very important if you are really searching for the success or the downfall of sales in any product. i can be geeky but i aint no nerd man. im american and if i really cared about sales of our exports I would be all over american product only. I would bad mouth every foreign product and i might even give bad stock tips to derail other countries progress. But if I were european, lets say im a spaniard from spain. I would not be on the computer saying wooo hooo go america. I guess if youre country is dependant on my countries success than maybe I would be like you... than again I have alot of self pride. Shouldnt you be waitng on some foreign aid to parachute from our planes or something? When I say you... i mean them. hee hee !
Wow, that even makes it worse dude. americas got it problems too so what? we got canada and mexico looking to get what we lend to the u.k. hee hee. so some dude from the u.k. tracks npd numbers, but why? hmmm... i think its to feel good about himself somehow and pretends to be working for his daddies company even though daddy left his mom at his early age. Guys, youre always going to be working for somebody. get used to it and do what youre told and stop pretending that NPD sales numbers generate income for your famlies. It dont. When you buy a console or game you lose money. thats your money. You pay for your entertainment. youre not at the board meeting counting paper so get off it. as gamers, what you should really despise is your favorite game going MAINSTREAM with people you dont like. annoying children and noobs who lose the game for you. Let the publishers and the developers worry about turning a profit. but what am i saying that hasnt been drilled into your heads before? nothing. So I am sure that the people who are tracking sales 3 months after a game that dont even own it are only in it because bill gates is indeed thier rich uncle and they have a place in his will. if not? wow, now I know why videogames are associated with anti social depressed fat people who the world views as born losers. Stop ruining my image you.
