How are the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 performing against themselves and each other when compared to previous years?
Damn the 360 is about 5 mill ahead from being 3rd place the Wii already won
"Damn the 360 is about 5 mill ahead from being 3rd place" aint it used to be 8 or 9 because of that head year start ??
LOL, seriously Wxer. It's OKAY. You don't have to counter every pro-360 statement. Relax..we know the 360 is losing steam but its STILL in second place in North America. Why don't we talk about how the PS3 won Black Friday and STILL lost to the 360 in North America in November? Its like you don't even try to hide the fact that your a fanboy, almost as if you think its OKAY to be a fanboy. Yeah 360 had a one year head start, but didn't Sony have 10 years of dominance in the gaming industry before the 360 came out? What happened to all those "loyal" Sony fans from the PS1 and PS2 days? Why aren't they buying PS3s?
We're getting there.
Well, in one year Sony cut that lead down to 5. By next year we could be talking a mere one million unit lead if that. And I don't count the Wii. The Wii is in its own category.
You do know the ps3 has been selling faster than the 360 right ? and did the 360 start at 700 bucks ? and I think you forgot about the economic crisis? You only have to see the ps3 sales # when it had the price cut to know a lot of people were waiting for it to cost less. Think b4 you post plz.
rofl wexr the 360 was at 6 Million after its st year, not 9, fool. So it took right now 3 years for Sony to make 1 Million good.
To clear things up, Microsoft shipped 8-10 million into stores and they sold around 6.5 million to customers. And the Wii doesn't count. Do you count the DS or PSP in this generation? No.
Hey Madden, can u use your tellestrator to describe the monumental amount of consoles MS stuffed the channel with to get to that 10M sold mark? Describe in detail how a paultry 1.5M consoles were delivered in the next 2 quarters and don't forget to include how MS execs. made the excuse of manufacturing delays. And I agree with you on the Wii not being a part of this generation. I don't care if it released in the same time frame, it still has the guts of a GC and it is still bested by the PS2 as far as graphics go and it still looks like azz on my HDTV.
"You do know the ps3 has been selling faster than the 360 right ? and did the 360 start at 700 bucks ? and I think you forgot about the economic crisis?

Yes, I know the PS3 has been selling faster than the 360 and its STILL in 3rd place in North America. 2. No the 360 did NOT start at 700 bucks cause if it did it would been a failiure lol. 3. Economic crisis? Lol, the American economy is sooo bad that people STILL prefer to be pay $50 a year for XBL, deal with RROD, and pay an extra $100 for Wi-fi. The PS3 Slim offers the BEST value in home entertainment history(Free online, built in Wi-fi, built in Blu-ray player, rechargable controller, more energy efficient that the 360, more reliable than the 360, the highest rated exclusives around, Playstation Home, game sharing, unlimited amount of friends, and an Internet Browser) and even in this economic crisis the 360 is STILL winning out. 4. 360 had their WORST year ever and STILL outsold the PS3 in NA when PS3 had a price drop and Uncharted 2, Demon Souls, Infamous, and KZ2(my goty). How will 2010 be any different when the 360 ACTUALLY has games and gets yet another price drop?
Wow, just wow. That's all I have to say about your rants.
The PS3 hit 11 million, as they predicted, increasing by 6.5% in market share, and decreasing the gap from 8.5 million to 5.7 million. And the 360, a couple months ago claimed to be "the only console to grow" this year sold about 2 million less than last year.
@above - The amount of time MS has blatantly lied to everyone this gen is unbelievable. I can understand their marketing strategies to create misconceptions to consumers in order to sell stuff e.g. Halo Wars, Xbox 360 Arcade. But they lie so much in their PR bullsh*t that it's not funny.
lol guy, this all you got, the only thing that was helping the x360 was THE PRICE, you don't see what's happening NOW that the PS3 is $300 or you don't want to see it? 1.That's cuz it has 1 year less in the market than the x360, if both launched in the same time you could see the difference, but you can't do that, or is too difficult for you? 2.SONY is capable to make a HIGH Price PS3 Console and still sell better than another CHEAP Console with a YEAR HEAD START, if this doesn't say anything to you, man you're LOST "3.1: Economic crisis? Lol, the American economy is sooo bad that people STILL prefer to be pay $50 a year for XBL, The American People HAVE NO CHOICE if they want to PLAY ON-LINE "3.2: deal with RROD, and pay an extra $100 for Wi-fi. If people bought a x360 and get teh RROD, they'll not throw to the window (IRONY lol) and say, "hey, nothing happened here, I'll buy another Console because I wipe my @$$ with money", M$ offer the 3 Year Warranty and a Gold card to play on-line, you really believe people don't want their console to get fixed? "3.3: The PS3 Slim offers the BEST value in home entertainment history(Free online, built in Wi-fi, built in Blu-ray player, rechargable controller, more energy efficient that the 360, more reliable than the 360, the highest rated exclusives around, Playstation Home, game sharing, unlimited amount of friends, and an Internet Browser) and even in this economic crisis the 360 is STILL winning out" We all know the PS3 offer the best but at the beginning Average Joes didn't going to buy a $600 Console just because it give you the best, since they only look at the PRICE, now that the PS3 has an Affordable Price is selling Amazingly, your console of choice is not winning, is only that is has more time in the market than the PS3 and even with that advantage couldn't sell the way The PS3 is doing 4.SO?, Playstation Flagship titles are The Gran Turismo Series, GT5 will be released on March and VARIETY is a KEY on PS Consoles, there isn't any priority over 1 genre as you can see You truly believe that HUGE games sales are important? People buy PS Consoles and then find the Game they like, not just buy the console cuz it has A game they want to play, that's the WHOLE point about VARIETY
flop of 2009!
2006: 360 had 6.5 million lead 2007: 360 had 5.5 million lead 2008: 360 had 7 million lead 2009: 360 have 4-5 million lead 2010: 360 is officially the third console despite the fact it had 1 year head start!
wait i'm i reading this right? did the ps3 just outsell the 360 in that last chart for 09?
it has outsold the 360 since launch,
2010, 2011, and B3YOND
and microsoft was saying that the 360 is the only console to have year by year growth for 2009... lol if this data is almost accurate then damn ps3 is really on a roll with no sign of slow down. have a happy holiday and a good new year!!!
Over a year head start. all da hate the disrespect the name calking and this is the outcome. A YEAR UEAD START AND JUS 5 MILL BEHIND. A YEAR AND ONLY A MERE 5 MILL. UNDERSTAND DA PS3 HAS SOLD FASTER THAN THE XBOT AND NOBODY LOOKS AT DAT. THEY SAID IT WONT SELL AND THE INSTALL WAS THIS AND THAT BUT IF U LOOK AT IT. IF THEY WERE RELEASED AT DA SAME TIME GUESS WHO WOULD BE IN A DISTANT THIRD. PS3 IS SELLING LIKE HOTCAKES BUT THE OTHERSIDE IS SO BLINDED AND RETARDED THAT THEY BELIEVE WAT THEY WANT. PS3 FTW. LOOK AT DA NUMBERS. 2011 DA PS3 WILL PASS THE XBOX. I WONDER WAT THE EXCUSE WILL BE THEN
OMG WAT A POSTE.DAT WOZ WIKID!!
You honestly think that Microsoft is worried about Sony chopping into the lead? There will be ebbs and flows in the Console Race. Microsoft knows this. And by the way... So does Sony. It was planned. And expected. And Microsoft was just waiting for it. Sony is chasing. They're desperate. It was the fastest slimming down of a console EVER and Microsoft still hasn't played that card. Sony HAD to do something. And they had to do it in 2009. Why? Because 2010 will be a slaughter. Especially in the Fall. Sony has played their last hand in this generation. All they have left is a price drop or two. And that won't happen for another year or two. Microsoft still has: An inevitable slimming down of the console. Maybe in 2010. Two price drops in the next year. Heavy hitting franchises next year. And Project Natal. Wow. And the PS3 will look like a hand-me-down BluRay Player when Microsoft releases an XBOX360 Slim with Natal embedded. At a cheaper price. :-) It's over. Deal with it. I find the hypocritical PS3 Fans hilarious. First, it was "a marathon, and not a sprint". Now, those rules have changed apparently. Pathetic.
what happened to the "with the current number ps3 is selling it will take it 5 years to reach current 360 sales" ?? i thought ps3 will lost this gen and will be always third with the least support from third party??? hmmm strange, i also thought that 360 had 7 million ahead of ps3, oh wait 10 million according to green burg and now its only 5 million? hmm strange!!! lets face it, 360 will be distant third this gen and wii second and u know who will be the first!! @UPDATE 360 already had 1 main price cut and 5 temporary price cuts through their retailer partners!! so price cuts wont help the 360 much!! maybe the slim with more reliable hardware will help to at least keep the competition for 2010!! but beyond that i really doubt they can compete at all if they already not released a new console!!!
Let me guess.. vgchartz is good now since it has good news for Sony.
Let me guess.. vgchartz is bad now since it has bad news for the X360. We get it, can we stop making these posts?
no still numbers for ps3 are biased... so it's less than 5,7 mln
diatom.. Sorry, but who are the ones that complain that vgchartz are biased, of course, until it has good news about PS3. Who are the ones that complain most sites are biased on their reviews about PS3 games, then will agree with the sites when there's good reviews on PS3 games, but then go back to calling the sites biased afterwards?
Why do the X'ies find it so hard to comprehend that VG has shown time and time again that it undertracks the PS3. They can only undertrack it so much though. So yes VGC is still biased. The PS3 is probably doing better than these numbers.
VGchartz still missing 1-2 million ps3!! so the lead is less than 5.7 million!! and if u stop counting the defected consoles for 360 then ps3 is already surpassed the 360 long time ago with sales!!
I'm waiting for E3 numbers it will be fun to watch :)
I will only say... good numbers for ps3,hope the next year will be even better ;)
lol cozzo, what a dumb kid :D
The year of 2010 is looking just as good for the PS3. We see block busters like GT5, GOW3, Heavy Rain, etc coming. Along with multiplatform titles like BFBC2. Look for summer 2010 for the PS3 to take over second place and never look back.
