PS3 software sales are really close to 360 sales despite the fact the 360 has like a 2:1 install base ratio over the PS3. The only game I see there that didnt perform very well on PS3 was Beatles: RB, and that game was promoted for 360.

Edit: Wow. Scribblenauts flopped. So much for E3 game of the show.

RockmanII73178d ago

Get with the times, The install base is much closer than 2:1.

Syronicus3178d ago

That's because the total sales of the 360 do not match the install base in terms of number of consoles. With the fact that MS counts a replacement console for the RROD as a "sale", there is nowhere near the same number for install base as there is number of consoles sold. In fact, I would go as far as to say that there are 33% less install base than total number of consoles sold...

I'm not saying that you are wrong, because I don't know for sure, but do you have a link or documentation for this statement?

"With the fact that MS counts a replacement console for the RROD as a 'sale'."

FrankWest3178d ago

I expected the Beatles to sell more than that

keyword "USA"

but wow the PS3 is movin some units, beating the wii in sales in the process, in the US!!!!!

CaptainAmerica3178d ago

360 is catching up again even after the "new" PS3 came out. Its funny how everyone calls Microsoft money hungry but Sony always releases a skinnier version of their console 2 or 3 years after their original one. Stupid PS3 fangirls are too blind to notice they are getting their money taken away from them. Poor droids.

If so it looks like the Wii is losing its appeal. Surly the price drop has changed that, but wow.
