PS3 being outsold by xbox 360 elite

According to the latest sales figures from www.amazon.com , not only is the PS3 being outsold by the Wii and the xbox 360 premium, the xbox 360 elite console is also outselling Sony's next-generation effort.
Also worth noting is that all three Halo 3 SKU's are also outranking the PS3 on these sales charts.

The story is too old to be commented.

gta_cb3531d ago

anyway getting back to the article, cool maybe this is good as then Sony will be forced to push the price cut forward in there things to do list.

well Halo release is near, we would expect xbox to perform well right? I mean i got my preorder already. I think we will see these numbers and pos go up and down as we near the release of game titles.

snoop_dizzle3531d ago

is released the elite along with halo 3 and had a bundle pack, I think the elite would sell a lot better.

isn't beta going on? i didn't get into beta or buy crackdown though. so i am not sure how many original xbox player was getting the system to play beta??? becaues beta ID was selling for high price on ebay before. If beta is finished arleady, then i guess i am wrong.

But in the US, xbox has always sold better than ps3 hasn't it? exclusing launch days??

ben hates you3531d ago

the elite is as hard to find as wii

RBlaze3531d ago

Im pretty sure the beta is lasting into early july. Cant remember the date though. You should pick up crackdown for a while to try the Beta mate, its good, and crackdown is going for fairly cheap in most places.

NOT a big surprise because most of the 360 ELITES sold are being purchased by previous 360 owners. They just want to have the best console available.

I just bought a 360 Elite and is my first 360. I got a PS3 at launch and bought the elite because I am tired of waiting for PS3 games.

I did have to go to 3 different stores before I found one and it was their last one.

Even if the Elites are being bought by previous owners, then the used console market is being flooded with used 360s. The install base will still increase, regardless.

sak5003531d ago

@dado . So the ps3 owners will start ordering 80GB models from korea and hence we should see increase in ps3 sales as well. Right.

MADGameR3531d ago

360 sales are going good, but they will have a limit. Just like X Box only reached 24M. The X Box 360 will exceed their previous X Box 6 year sale. But the growth will slow down dramatically. It will drop.

and what happens when they do a price cut?
