Wii, DS and PS3 come out on top as Xbox360 and PSP see sales down from last year
End of the road for M$.One year lead over the competition,stealing PS2 franchises and anything related to the Sony brand,long with 199$ console yet they still can't out sell PS3 or Wii. Consumers made there choice,all it took Sony was 299$ price point. Xbox brand=NO.ONE.CARES.
The MAJORITY of customers, comes from HALO (and FPS) so Microsoft won't be gaining a good amount of new customers for a while. The MAJORITY of sales are for replacements. No shooters till after September 2010: ME2 will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) SCC will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) Crackdown 2 will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) Alan Wake will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) Hmm...I wonder will you 360 freaks pick up a PS3 for MAG? I mean it only does everything. P.s. Oh and BTW The 360 has dropped off the Top 100 in Amazon ;)
PS3 sells half a million in a week. I'm sure some delusional bot will post about how that is a failure.
I saw one 360 sold. 2 PS3's. and no Wii sales
It only does mobs gone wild XD
From running a store, in Canada, I saw 17 PS3 120gb/250gb sales, 12 360 sales, 4 Wii sales no psp sales and 6 DS/DSi sales. guess who will be getting dissagrees.
I got a new GFX card for my PC and Left 4 Dead 2 to go along with it. Got Forza 3, GTA 4 and Dead Space for $50.00 total. Got a new Dualshock 3 controller and a stand for my Slim. Great deals all around. Oh yeah, Planet Earth on Blu Ray for $40.00. Sweet deals baby!
While this is coming from VGchartz, I still feel compelled to reiterate the famous words from a certain Nelson Munz: *points finger* HA HA!!!
We know Shadow Flare, VGchartz is right only when some people want them to be right. typical.
Hope you didn't open Planet Earth. http://store.discovery.com/...
Well, this article comes from VzGzChartz and that means estimates, so we can expect even MORE than this for sure GAMERS FTW!!!
Luckily it's still shipping. Wow that's an awesome deal and thanks for the heads up.
DIE SLOWLY YOU M$ SUCKAASS
WOW at PS3. 500K?? Amazing
Yeah, I am loving it! at this rate the PS3 will have caught up to the 360 in NA in just over a year, we have a competition for 2nd place folks! This is great news for all of us! I know I know, NA is not the center of the world and many 360 sales where RROD and MS pays sites like vgchartz and all the mainstream media who hates Sony and wants them to burn in hell, and I know PS3 is teh rockzors omgz amazing and MS will fail with bad exclussives...yaada yaadaa yyaaadddaaa.
what crawled up your ass and died?
PS3 500K in NA on Black Friday week 360 325k in NA on Black Friday week http://gamer.blorge.com/200...
500,000 in a week, for you deadbox 360 owners who cant count thats a half a million which chops the lil 4 mil lead down even more, between the lightning bundle about to hit japan, and christmas out here i predict early death in 2010 for microloss and deadbox 360, RIP bill gates.
Lol'd. Like a company dies when it gets outsold, an Farrari is still doing well still it gets outsold by number of other manufacturers.
Well in the console world its another story...look at all the consoles that are no longer in production because of getting outsold...3D0,Dreamcast,Saturn ,Neo Geo,Turbo Graphics,Xbox.and the list goes on..
yeah, because we all know the N64 died the moment it got outsold by the PSOne right? And I guess the PSP is about dead by now, since it's been outsold since day one? And since you make it seem like sales are everything, I guess both the 360 and the PS3 are pretty much dead right now, since the Wii is outselling both. Next time you want to make such a comment, atleast make it where it belongs, in the open zone please.
Wii can outsell both but its not in the same userbase as the HD consoles are....when the 360 dies atleast people can enjoy their games uncut&chopped due to the fact that dvd player cant handle disc larger than 8.5gb...Lols what happen to all the xbox360 fanboys and their sales data charts?
"Well in the console world its another story" Um you do realize the ps3 has been in last this entire generation right? Going by your logic the ps3 has been dead day 1.
It seems PS3 is actually second seeing as the only place its getting outsold much is in the US.
well, it's hard to say, reports I have seen have been rather confusing regarding Europe. Japan and Asia in general are definately Playstation territory (when compared to the 360), US is, as of now, Xbox land, though the PS3 is quickly gaining momentum. Like I said, it seems both MS and Sony have claimed superiority in Europe, and while I am willing to believe both companies are not lying about their sales, both are using different ways to calculate their sales, like using Europe w/o UK, or with Middle East. As for worldwide sales, Microsoft still has the lead, mostly because of its one year lead and the fact that the US is the biggest market while Japan's is shrinking. And since this seems to be what everyone on N4G cares about, the future, my crystal ball (everyone on this website seem to have one) tells me that this generation won't end up with neither the PS3 or the X360 dominating the other. It seems very likely that by 2011, 2012 at the latest, the next generation consoles will start rolling out. I'd expect MS to keep the lead through 2010 thanks to massive advertising on a few select titles and Natal, to finally see the PS3 take the lead (in WW total sales) by the end of 2011, just in time for MS to release their next console. This generation won't end up like the two previous ones, don't expect anyone to abandon their console until the next one is ready.
every black friday since the PS3 has been on market, MS has been very vocal about outselling Sony's PS3, buy a number to number ratio.. last year, they said 3-1, the year before they said 2-1. This year... (qrickets) not even a report on how they are doing, LOL!!! it's funny the fanfare has totally died down, they dont have much to talk about.. Last year they sold 800k in november, I cant wait to hear what they sold this novemeber, I'm sure it'll have dropped by like well over 50%. we shall see.
Yeah, for once microsoft has kept its big mouth shut. Obviously cos ps3 slapped 360 in sales. 2009 was such a rubbish year for microsoft. This really was sony's year
That the PS3 sold that many...I was there on black friday. I seenn itt!!!!(Shivers) Cheers
The Wii outsold the PS3 this week? I sold one Wii all week. We have the PS3 doorbuster go within five minutes at Gamestop. Then, we sold a good 30 more this week. What the heck?
ps3 still at 27m according to vgchartz? sony announced that they had sold 27m well over a month ago...
so I guess its 27.5 million now? then again, who is rounding out? eitherway, gj sony! at least they don`t smell like poo, like all the other game companies.
lol was that sarcasm? i'm not a fanboy i'm just pointing out vgchartz inaccuracies.
there is no such thing as sarcasm on N4G. This place is serious business.
he's right but then so are you
I'm pretty sure there were more PS3s sold than that. I'd put money on it.
I am suprised you would say such a thing, oh wait, no I am not.
really, people are allowed to have an opinion without you coming down on them.
Yeah, since its VGChartz, it probably means the PS3 sold more and the 360 sold less than they stated.
I await the usual 360 zombies shambling in to squeel "LOL at PSP!"
PS3 500K AGAIN no more to say
Original Xbox sold 25 million in life time sales and most owners consist of Halo fans.Now with 360 they had a year head start advantage over the competition.Sony and Nintendo. It's been 4 years now,they only managed to sell about 7 (Excluding broken 360's) million more consoles within the same time period. PS3 launched a year later retailing at 599$ vs 399$,that's a 200$ difference(So bots understand)3 years later Sony's close to 30mil,by Christmas time 31-32mil (So bots understand still have another month left in sales. Say if Sony does sell 31-32mil that would put M$ at about 34 million consoles sold Worldwide,that would be 2million difference maybe 3 million around there.By next year PS3 will easily catch up to 360 and surpassing it. My point is M$ never managed to gain that many more users,the only thing they have is Halo,that's not bringing in new consumers for them obviously.Sony has 2010,time for the bots to admit defeat.
I know there's a genre for every gamer next year. FFXIII has its fanbase GT5 has its fanbase GOWIII has its fanbase ( plus new ppl who were introduced by GOW Collection ) That's 3 HALOs for you retards. Expect the PS3 SLIM too SHOOT OFF THE SHELVES, when gamers see these games.
I'm loving this. I feel justified in my purchase of PS3 over the 360 two years ago. It was a tough choice back then but now I look at it as a no brainer. It's funny, it seems like the 360 fans have become pretty quiet around here lately. They used to be a noisy bunch.
Unusually quiet in here. Interesting.
the people who would normally be beating there chest about "teh salez" have been humbled and have nothing to say
thats why they are so quiet. all that time they finaly have there eyes open and they can see the light :P
Last year the 360 almost sold around 800,000 while the PS3 sold around 400,000 that a 2:1 ratio. But this year is very different isn't it 360 fanboys lol, last year the economy was worse then it is this year so there's no excuses for why the 360 did so bad. The PS3 won this holiday season and it will continue to out sell the 360 from here on out.
I was one of those 360 sales this Black Friday. Now I officially own every system on the market right now including handhelds. :D
