PS3 destroying the competition, XBL lagging and ripping off people, Wii sports is still the greatest game ever (according to the bots).

Saaking2956d ago

Sony has got this holiday season.

KionicWarlord2222956d ago

Looks like that...

Im not going place no judgement .

OmarJA2956d ago

Yeah no kidding...

Best lineup of exclusive + Price Cut = Win for Sony.

Arsenal4Ever2956d ago

I'm not 100% certain that PS3 has got this holiday season.

" Yeah no kidding...

Funny, people claim that people are stupid for picking the Wii, because they dont understand gaming...what makes you think they will understand what the "best lineup of exclusive" is?

Just saying.

Best luck to all of them.

1."Sony this week said sales for the PS3 Slim increased 300 percent at top U.S. retailers upon introduction of the PS3 Slim model".

In desperation, Sony had to lose some weight to be on the same level in sales.

2. "Sales for Warner Bros. Interactive Inc.'s Batman: Arkham Asylum nearly captured identical sales of the Xbox 360 SKU due to an exclusive Joker DLC".

Batman: Arkham Asylum (360) Square Enix 303,000
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3) Square Enix 290,000

3. "Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 ranked third in Aug. U.S. hardware sales".

DS - 552.9k
Wii - 277.4k
360 - 215.4k
PS3 - 210.0k
PSP - 140.3k
PS2 - 105.9k

360 still had the edge.

Gabe EatsWell2956d ago

360 still has the edge... at failing.

Stryfeno22956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

From year to date 360 still HAS the edge. Since this is dealing only with Aug 2009 NPD...360 HAD the edge....For that month. Get it.

Optical_Matrix2956d ago

sales worldwide say otherwise. NPD does no equal the world. Us Europeans and Britains play games too you know. So do the Japanese. And it's a whole different story across the water. I guess you're still shook by the 550,000 sold in one week.

Saaking2956d ago

Bragging about outselling PS3 by a mere 5,000 when in Japan PS3 outsold 360 by 142,000. Spin that bots.

ZOMBIEMAN12956d ago

those are august numbers but first week september numbers show PS3 being the number 1 platform beating DSi with around 140.000 units sold in the US funny how almost no one here actually look up the numbers really if your going to play sales number at least do some research and not use a N4G article from august sales also about Sony losing weight i remember a similar occasion last year when MS introduced the arcade SKU well not slimmer but definitely ligher SKU to compete with a $399.99 PS3 and this year another price drop from MS to combat the slim no that's not desperation that's brilliant strategy /s . also learn to read they were referring that Batman AA sold as much as a 360 not the 360 version [email protected] so yeah i got 2 words for ya SUCK IT motherfvcker ( seriously does no one know this reference i've been doing this for days and no one has said anything about my reference )

neonlight452956d ago

I think we should all wait for NDP to release September sales. Now we'll see who's talking
