What was that Microsoft was saying about "constantly outselling the PS3 for the entire generation?"
They are eating their words right now. Sony is on a roll, one that I expect to continue well into Christmas time.

Let's face it, with the PS3 and 360 evenly priced, you're simply getting more value for your money out of the PS3.

With their biggest franchise launching another installation, a price cut that either matched the PS3's or dropped some models below the PS3 cost, a winter bundle, and several other attempts MS could not catch the PS3.

HALO fever is the only thing that floated those numbers. That fever has subsided. We will continue to see the console everyone wanted, the PS3, leading in the US and the rest of the world through the new year.

The $199 Xbox 360 remained unchanged in price, but 360 sales still increased 63% over the prior month.

So much for the theory that the hard drive-less Arcade is the most popular 360 model.

WOW at ps3 and ds
both did a bang up job in september.

I am not surprised that the ps3 outsold the 360. Are they using a combined sales for ds and dsi? I guess media create is the only one that shows ds and dsi individually.

Half of the top 10 games were sold on the 360. Usually only Nintendo does that.

HALO won't be dragging the 360 up the chart next month whereas the buzz concerning Uncharted 2 will only add fuel to the PS3 sales jump that wasn't based on any particular launch software in the first place.
crck  +   1772d ago
@1.6 Well I'm sure some of that boost was from Halo ODST as well as the $50 rebate from MS off 360 Elites that started Sept. 22nd. Who wouldn't by an Elite over an Arcade for only $50 more?

But damn the Wii numbers are just scary. They shifted a ton with their price drop only in effect for 4 days. I personally think the Wii is crap but I guess the masses have spoken.
Bathyj  +   1772d ago
What if its not so much a spike as a new trend?

PS3 was outselling XB in the states for months after its last price cut remember? It wasn't until XB cut the price again leading up to Christmas that they took the reigns back. Kind of like what might/could be happening here.

The rest of the year should be interesting. Save the US, save the world.

WOW the moral victory goes to the 360.
With all of the hype and smack talk about the PS3 slim (AKA-PS3 do-over) plus all the exclusives and the purchases for the PS3's biggest hitter in uncharted 2. I think the 360 did an awesome job, I mean with all that, and the manufacturing cost for retooling their assembly line, research and development of the PS3 slim, the PS3 only able to best the 360 by 140K in the US, Wow.

Good job 360 way to keep the fire to a minimum. A complete relaunch of the PS3 and the 360 only lost .0175 percent of it US lead; Good Job Microsoft. And then on top of the, the 360 still managed to stand tall in software sells with 3 of the top 5 and 5 of the top 10.
ODST selling 1.5m in 8 days,super.

Does that mean, not many games were bought with those 491K PS3 slims that were sold? Maybe it's true after all, perhaps people are buying the PS3 to be used as a movie player.

IDK, all I can say is great job Microsoft, once again you managed to keep Sony's damage to a minimum.

PS3 did ok/good, but Wii is still a monster in US
With Canada over half a million PS3 sales in NA.
Good numbers.

And Wii pricecut also moved a lot of Wii units.
Now, the most important thing, how well will PS3 perform in October, though with killer-app Uncharted 2 release.

Strong numbers for x360, which had ODST in September. Overall, x360 is doing pretty good, despite PS3 and Wii pricecuts. Though, x360 also had that limited 50$ pricecut for 2 weeks.

And PS2 is doing great, just great. So and DS.
PSP, well, it`s the best selling non-Nintendo handheld.))

This Christmas season will be definitely very interesting.

These sales prove that people have wanted PS3s for awhile but the price was just too high. Uncharted 2 wasn't released in September so it'll be interesting to see the October numbers.

To 1.6, you said 360 sales went up 60%+ to the previous month...

You do know the previous month there was only 4 weeks of reporting, and sept has 5 weeks, so pretty much all consoles, with or without a price cut, would have went up by nature, of 1 extra week.

So the percentages is off, it's likely the 360 Increased it's percentage by like 20-30%.

@tinted eyes
I believe that Kingme was talking about all the people that bought PS3's because Uncharted was coming out. It is suppose to be a system sell isn't it. Funny how you can make that comment about ODST, but he can't make it about Uncharted.

@Kingme - Great points, people can call it spin all they want, but everything you said was factual. I agree with you 100%, all of the HYPE (and there was a lot of it) about the PS3 slim, I figured it would sell a million in the US alone, especially the way the fanboys on N4G were ranting. You make an excellent point my friend.

@The warranty - ODST is probably the reason Kingme's comment is true. If it weren't for ODST (which according to you PS3 fans is just an overpriced addon) there probable would have been less 360s sold and perhaps more PS3s sold, who knows some people probably bought 360s instead of a PS3 because of ODST...lol

@Cyrus - No one is questioning why the 360 was up 60%, the fact still remains that it was. Who cares how many weeks were in it, it being report from one period to another. Talking about spinning.

@Xiphos - See that's your problem, you need to read to learn rather than to refute. The 2 million day 1 sells for ODST was for world wide not for the US only. Next time, read to whole article instead of just the title.

"Funny how you can make that comment about ODST, but he can't make it about Uncharted."

Probably because people are more likely to buy the console for the game in the month that it comes out, instead of the month before, and obviously I can make that comment about ODST since it was actually released in September, not the month before.

Who's theory was that? It seemed to be the consensus here that the arcade model is mostly ignored and everyone on this site suggest avoiding it altogether if you're interested in owning a 360.
Why do you think everyone keeps saying things like "Now that the PS3 and 360 are the same price..."?

So I guess after all the hype train on the PS3 slim + price cut, that is with all it's guns out, it only managed to outsell the 360 a measly 150k. Respectable? Yes, but nothing like the 1000% we were hearing about. Overhype? Yes!

I don't think the ps3 re-image + price cut will have a significant effect, just like the 360 price cut.

With all the hype dream blogs here on N4G and all the talk from the Sony fans you would think the PS3 would have sold a million. Sony had one month in NA to push ahead with the cheaper slim and only did it with 491 vs 352. Just like all price drops they begin to decline after the first month and ths is all Sony could do? Teh slim was Sony's biggest chance to turn the tide and it was a super failure... WOW!!! I was expecting a heck of alot more, I was expecting at least 800k above the 360 with the cheaper slim... super fail of all time.

Your Call and KingMe
There are 3 weeks that seperate the two game release on different months. Thats 1 week shy of a month and yet you guys say they they should have the same impact in Sept?.

Its great that you guys acknowledge that Uncharted is just as big as the xbox's biggest franchise. Never knew you guys had such high regards for it.

I knew ODST first day numbers were inflated like all MS exclsuives first day sales data which is almost impossible to get after just one day in anycase. It was reported to sold 2.7 million copies worldwide on first day and then basically nothing the reaming weekdays?. 1.5 million in NA for 1 week and then 1.2 million for the rest of the world for 1 week to make up the 2.7 million it was suppose to sell on first day???. You x360 fans should stop believing MS and especially what VG crap reports. It is stupid to think that someone could report on game sales after 1 day to begin with.

Suddenly all that carp talk about PS3 game sales seems like crap eh?.

@poindat. The PS3 is still not evenly priced with the x30 since there is no 199 PS3 sku.

JokesOnYou  +   1772d ago
lol,
ps3 relaunch, slim ps3 + price drop with all the sony extremists screaming ps3 would easily double 360 sales with both at the same price and yet all ps3 could manage is 140k more than 360, just like I said, by Nov NPD 360 will be back to outselling ps3 again, and it will be alot closer in Oct NPD #'s, we all know the biggest sales happen in the first (week) month, after a price drop, but because of the holidays approaching sales will be higher than normal for all systems until Jan, with 360 leading the ps3 again.

These #'s for ps3 are not impressive when you consider that the ps3 had always been more expensive than 360 and therefore in theory alot more folks were waiting for a ps3 price drop as oppose to 360, so if what all the sony extremists having been preaching about "price" is true, how come the ps3 sales aren't alot bigger?...and 360 sales increased at the same time like 60% with the price drop which only affected the higher sku. Sony can't even consider another price drop for another 18+ months at the earlist, and micro is still holding at least a -$50 card that they can use anytime, but again just like I said before, they don't need to anytime soon, just ride out the initial ps3 sales spark and still win the holidays like every other holiday season before. lmfao, so much for those wild predictions.

JOY

@ Morganfail, "If the PS3 price drops to $299 then it's game over." So Sony does that and people now want to think it is a fluke?"

ha, ha nobody's saying its a fluke, of course like any other price drop, sales increase...so the question becomes where will it balance out? If ps3 sales were double or in the 650k or above range right now then it would be logical to predict while they would go down after a price drop they still would maintain a healthy lead for awhile, now specifically because this price drop comes with the holiday season right around the corner sales will likely go up, but that will happen for all consoles, thats normal, now after that with ps3 sales at 490k just after launch but before the holidays it just doesn't seem like it will carry those type of sales in throughout next year like the wii did, wii was selling 600k-700k at one point even after the holidays and even when sales dropped they were selling 400-500k+ for a long time.

lol, kws1065...its funny you say that the ps3 launched at $500-$600, 360 was $300-$400...so essentially the 360 the 360 has dropped the price at most -$100, ps3 is now available at -$200 difference, lol so even with the added BR player it wasn't enough demand/value which FORCED sony to NOW SELL AT THE SAME PRICE AS 360= Wow. & lol, oh btw the way I like how only now is ODST considered a hardware seller. lmfao, you guys are as predictable as the wind or should I say your arguements change as often as the wind. lol too funny, thats why I like NPD days, real #'s always destroy all the insane BS propagand from the sony extremists, seriously look at some of those old ps3 slim news posted on n4g, some of the very same folks here were acting as if ps3 was going to sell a mil every month and 360 was going to be dead, lol, and NPD brings them back to reality, Nov will be a nightmare for them, sleep tight kids.

Microsoft sat on HALO ODST after it was completed for months. They waited because they knew that the PS3 price cut was coming. They took an add-on pack with recycled multiplayer, used advertising and well placed articles to blow it into a full game. Something even Bungie said it was not.

Then they chopped the price of more than one 360 model, put together a winter bundle, a special on another 360 package, flooded the air with Natal news, even put the HALO Reach beta invite news out and for what? Third place?

Every publisher, industry analyst, sales forecast predictor, and half mad gamer with an opinion have said the same thing. "If the PS3 price drops to $299 then it's game over." So Sony does that and people now want to think it is a fluke?

Look at the facts. You launch a new title from your biggest gun and chop the price of your console to either match or beat the PS3's cost and you still can't catch it?

Common sense says this isn't a one month sales trend.

The PS3 has the GOTY out right now and it's buzz has been rolling in scores that are off the charts despite the fact that PS3 games are graded against a higher, more stringent scale. That will show in the October NPD. This isn't the last AAAA game coming to the PS3 this year that is exclusive. Combine that with several high profile Bluray releases this Christmas and it's ho ho ho and Christmas cheer in the Sony camp.

I wonder what the excuse will be next month when the PS3 actually moves ahead of the 360 by an even wider margin....?
kws1065  +   1772d ago
This number proves again that
within 100 dollars difference between PS3 and 360, there will be no chance for 360 to sell more than PS3.

Just like last year before 360 dropped its price. Oh, 360 drops its price every year lol.

Hrmm, another case of "US = The World"

Heck, most people would have expected the Slim to be around 300k in the U.S. But not 490k. And if you add up the worldwide numbers, japan is 300k, and Eu could be another 500k. That's 1.3million in a month.

So keep on crying.

But I will say though that the 360 still has solid numbers for the month with their price cut.

I'm not even going to try and argue or call people out for making outlandish claims about PS3 and it's numbers that would kill 360. 2012 is almost here and at this rate I don't ever think PS3 will pass 360 in hardware and especially not software sales this generation. The fact that 360 software takes the wii head on with a smaller install base needs to be recognized. Spin can go on for only so long and the numbers don't lie people. 360 will come in second the gen and 1st in software and services.

Great Comment Kingme

The face that all of the super duper hardcare Fanboys feel a need to address your comment is all the evidence need to confirm that you are spot on. They seem to fear your, I remember one time you said Uncharted was a good game and the PS3 fanboys disagreed with you. Probably because as soon as they see your name they hit the disagree button without reading it...lol

But, you are 100% correct, the PS3 with all of it's hype and glory should have beat the 360 by 490K let along only sold 490K. These boys are disapointed and they know they are. Right Morganfell? I addressed you because you appear to be the puppet master for these lemmings.

All three console had a price cut in September. For 360bots saying how the 360 held off the ps3, 360 pro was only 199.99. " I expected ps3 to do better" comment is ludacris because it was only September. Though i think it was just more people upgrading than anything else.

Sony announced their price cut a week before Microsoft. See what happens when you have a head start. Microsoft has a 365 days head start with 10 million console lead

Seems graphics only matter when there's a multiplaform graphics comparison and 360 comes out on top.

The difference is, now PS3 has the graphics, teh sales and the games. While 360 has none of the above! After all the ridiculous 360 fanboy rhetoric over the years, how could we not rub it in???

I guess the 360 fanboys must have gotten to you over the years, eh?

Feeling a little frustrated when the 360 does well?

I suggest you go play your PS3 as nothing has really changed, fanboys on all sides will bicker....

Great hardware sales for the PS3 however look at all the 360 games on that sales list compared to the PS3 games. Wonder whats up with that. Hope the PS3 doesn't turn into another PSP. All hardware sales, hardly any software sales.

Funny a lot of people mention Uncharted 2
WHEN IT'S SEPTEMBER'S SALES. Uncharted 2 wasn't even out then which I honestly believe is a huge system seller. Also, this is only for North America, so obviously the NPD sales don't include other territories.

I can't wait to see this month's sales, estimates are putting Uncharted 2 passed the million mark in it's first week. I already have my GOTY, I don't think Modern Warfare 2 can even touch Uncharted 2.

Its obvious that the PS3 its doomed now
A brand new console crappy slim and thats all they got 450,000 vs 350,00 360 its outrageous. No doubt the PS3 its doomed. The best selling game this month Halo ODST sold more than the entire PS3 library games combined for the month of september and thats a shame.

360 has shown again that the little spike from the PS3 its due to already ps3 owners wanting a backup due to their faulty YLOD, dust magnet, overheated and worthless bluray player. Thats a shame as a whole only morons will be happy with these numbers. The PS3 its dead and now all that it needs its for the shareholders to continue to loose money. 3 more years like this and sony will be filing for chapter 11.

MS sold off the top 10 titles 2.7 million sofware, more than twice the combined total of the WII and PS3 combined numbers for the month of september. Hahahahahahahahaha, I got the hardaware, but I will not buy the software for it Sony droids stated. No wonder the PS3 sucks a droids rear, yea, I meant you.

Hey look guys, PS3rd finally outsold 360 by 150k for one month(only because the initial sales bump), surely PS3 will be caught up by next year!!!

Poor Droids.

Still feeding your sad delusions(that PS3rd won't still be dead last when the new generation starts in 2-3 years), while by next NPD PS3 will be lucky to be 30k ahead, and will probably be losing again, rofl. Even if PS3rd could hold selling 150K a month more, it wouldn't catch up for a good while...... And it won't hold this. :)

I'll leave you dead last PS3rd Droids with something Mr. Greenberg said less than a week ago:

"We remain confident that Xbox 360 will not only outsell PS3 for the full calendar year, but for this entire generation."

XD

Enjoy this month because we'll be laughing at NPD's next month. :S

PS3 sold 140k more units with both the 360 and PS3 getting price drops and priced evenly, looks like that settles which console people prefer the most.. Halo 3 ODST sales are a little underwhelming considering previous reports stating it sold like 1.5 million in a week or something.. Uncharted 2 i think will be at 1.6 million units sold for next month

another intresting thing is Batman arkham asylym for the PS3 is still in the top 10 for the PS3 but nowhere on the list for the 360 and Madden 10 is only 40,000 more units sold on the 360 than the PS3.. I think its safe to say that the PS3 is definatley catching up in terms of software attach rates as well.
Meus Renaissance  +   1772d ago

@ 2.3
First day sales for Uncharted where at more than 300K for the US only, we know it sold 47K in Japan first day, which means at least 70K for the week (3 days), add Europe in the mix and Uncharted will probably reach nearly 1 million units sold 1st week.

It's also hilarious when the 360 fanboys hold so dearly onto the NPD sales
When they know how laughably bad the 360 does in Europe and most especially Asia/Japan. It's so convenient when the NPD sales don't include those regions right?

The only region the 360 still has a hold on above the PS3 is North America, we all know that and it's starting to become a smaller lead as the PS3s are flying off the shelves.

It's a better value, it has better exclusives and it has a much lower failure rate that STILL plagues the 360. A true gamer is seriously passing up an awesome buy now that the PS3 is $300, the 250gb model will only be $50 more and that'll be a way better value than the Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 Bundle that comes with a 250gb HDD, which will be $400.

I think many people would have expected a slightly higher figure for Sony but 500K is great nonetheless and surprisingly respectable sales for Microsoft too - it doesn't seem like it has cut much into their market demographic. The biggest tell factor however is to see how these figures change throughout the next few months. Everyone felt that Sony would have a boost in hardware sales but the fall numbers could be the most important in this generation.

P.S. ODST destroys the software sales table. Suck on that lemon, haters!

@ MetalGearRising... Let's see, the 360 and the PS3 both dropped price on their 400 dollar machines down to 300 dollars. The 360 then throws in 2 free games on top of it. MS also throw in a 50 dollar rebate. They also release by far their biggest game of the year, meanwhile the PS3's only exclusive releases were a rehashed Katamari and a remake of a year-old 360 game? And yet the PS3 still sold 40% more. I'd call that a big success. But you gotta hand it to MS: they pulled out all the stops to make sure they didn't trail the PS3 by much more. It would have been an outright massacre if they didn't drop the price, add free games, give out rebates, and release their biggest title of the year.

I think i got something that will inovate fps's
I was thinking why cant you use the sixaxis to control the gun control.like when you tilt the controller sideways you would see the ingame character do same by turning his gun sideways this is something that should be on default.but one thing that has to be an option is being able to press and hold a button and use sixaxis to point the gun anywhere around the screen freely without moving the head of the character or the screen whatever you want call it.the reason it should be an option is because I could see the player having a hard time being able to control the gun.And maybe depend how you rotate sixaxis you do a different meelee attack whoknows i would like to see it in mag or a patch in killzone.

anyways nice sales for both consoles.

Killzone 2 supports sixaxis shooting. When you're zoomed in you can just tilt the controller to make those minor adjustments. It's really a sweet feature that allows for a clean shot when the dillweed keeps moving around behind cover like a jackarse.

i didnt play killzone2 but from what i could tell its not something i was thinking about. i was saying more of a barrel role motion control when you have the sixaxis you know to look the nice shiny side of the gun lol i know it's nothing that would add to combat much.and would like to do it without zooming in too you know not just tilt it abit actually aim all around whats on the screen.

I was
expecting the ps3 to outsell the 360 i mean a ps3 for that price it would be madness for anyone not to go out and buy one.
Dellis  +   1772d ago
The difference even that big, I expected 700K sold for PS3

maybe XMAS?

The tides are turning. I'm very surprised it outsold the Wii...

The next NPD will be painful as I expect the Wii to make a critical comeback after it's sneak attack price-cut. That's my madame swami prediction for the month.

Edit: I also find it hilarious that ODST outsold most of the list combined. (software-wise)

Damn dude, talking about kicking a man when he's down....or in this case, kicking a box LOL

So glad PS3 doing so well in USA as well as the rest of the world

You have to be kidding me..
140k more consoles when the PS3 was practically relaunced...
A few weeks before the release of the slim all the retailers put a hold on buying PS3s then come just before September ALL the stores bought a ton of PS3 to restock their stores with the NEW PS3..

Come October and November NPD and then we can all have a discussion...
But go on, do your worse, it will only come back and bite you..
Oh and could someone tell me how many times the 360 has outsold the PS3 over the last few years in US..

Yes @ below...
The 360 sales increased 60+ % when Halo came out...
PS3 outsold 360 by 35,000 per week...
You really expect it to be that much next month...
Keep smoking it..
The way you guys go on you would have expected the 360 to sell around 10 Thousand for the WHOLE MONTH...

The room is spinning!!!!

Wanna explain to me why even with Halo launching and a 50 dollar price cut/rebate deal the 360 couldn't even come close?

dont forget
it's HALF A MILLION IN A MONTH

1/2 in a 360 dominated area?

?????
360 at $200/250 vs $300
Henry Cain  +   1772d ago
Good numbers for all consoles but the PS3 is a real beast at $299. Almost 500k this month. If this keeps up it will pass the 360 next year.
Arnon  +   1772d ago
I guess if you read this NPD and went "LALALALA!!!" and made that 352,600 look like a 0, then yes, it probably will... just remember to make 360 numbers all 0's.

Ok Namco
