GamePro: The Microsoft console claims the top spot in U.S for the first time in more than two years. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 3 sold 360,100 units, which while only good enough for third place represented a 30 percent increase on February 2009.
because the ps3 outsold the 360 in worldwide sales. how in the devil did this get approved?
why do these articles never specify its only US sales? its funny how the 360 is in last place this month in overall sales worldwide, but they have to twist zhit around to make them selves look appealing. truth is, they do have their brainwashed fanbase under control, who can blame em
Looks like for some people World Wide sales is irrelevant, and the relevant thing are the only United States of America Sales.
SasanovaS1987: The article specifies "the top spot in the U.S. monthly sales ranking" in the first sentence.
Also, it says "NPD" right in the title. Which means North American sales.
Yeah, it does say NPD.
It's a duplicate because it has the same data from here: http://www.n4g.com/industry... and here: http://www.n4g.com/industry...
"feel good" article for the aged 360. Next article: "Webster's officially changes the definition of national from: of a nation to mean of the world."
America is the world. Some people will just never know....sad sad world.
Yeah I can confirm that, the world is going nuts for the X360, sold out everywhere, riots are reported in Tokyo, Rome, Amsterdan, Stockholm, Porto, Barcelona,...and the list goes on. I'm so happy I have one but fear for my life..if people finds out...I better check my door i locked. I love the Halo 3 pic for the (breaking) "news" article LOL
Damn I don't see ps3 fans in media create sales threads complaining its only Japan. Hmm someone mentioned brainwashed fans up there. Maybe some people shouldn't just completely attribute that to the 360.
I love how *SOME PEOPLE* approve this NPD article, but report the worldwide one... you know who you are ;)
360 last place in the world; apparently the world sales data is not as important as the US sales data.
N4G is an American site, is it not? Over half of its audience is American. I'm just saying...
And that totally means the rest aren't welcome. That totally means the rest of the world's sales shouldn't be heard. Come on, dude... the US is mostly home to English-speaking people, but we make room for those who don't, either.
Not at all. Of course everyone else is welcome -- but the site it from the US, so it should be allowed to concentrate on US sales figures. They do the same thing at boxofficemojo.com
oh wow someone I've never seen before just laid some smack down... ouch
Negative comments left by PS3 fanboys /yawn.
This has got to be one of the worst generations of gaming that i have ever been a part of. Its all about sales and who sold more in the US or who sold more in the world, and 2 states are bigger then Italy so Italy doesnt really count ( and actual point made ) I cant believe that this many people come here day in and day out doing the same thing over and over again. " my system sold more" " yeah well my system sold more 2 months ago" " well my system has better games....and your system is ugly..." As long as a company is making enough to stay in business...thats what we should care about. And thankfully ALL 3 systems are doing well...
It's human nature to back your own team/car/console in the face of competition. Watching sports would be pretty boring if nobody cared which team won. I agree that the constant sales updates and 'who will win the console war?' articles do get tedious though.
Yeap, like some people expect games with scores for 9.5 or 10. Or X Millions of sales in just 1 week.
bubble to you Seraphemz. Now let's read a 100 comments from the fanboys that are not ahppy with this news. Ok Fanboys let's go flood this news with your cry and excuses. pfff pathetic. Get a job and buy all 3 system...loosers.
Well it certainly didn't help Bill maintain top spot on the rich list! Or something.
Glad to see that in just the few days Heavy Rain was out, that it made it in the top 10. Already a success.
I wonder how well the Xbox would be doing in the US if Americans weren't so patriotic? It's clearly an inferior console. This is a fact.
If that was the case the Nintendo Wii wouldn't be the bestselling console here in the United States by such a large margin over the 360. This is also the first time the 360 has outsold the Wii since September 2007. If we are so patriotic the playstation 3 and nintendo wii would sell like the 360 does in japan which is barely at all. Americans show love to all the consoles unlike some countries.
really.... the US didn't seem to have any problem supporting the PS2 over the old xbox. Some of you people really.... is it so hard to simply say well done to MS, lets face it Nin has been dominating so what this simply says is "yes" the 360 is still going to be around and wont be going anywhere soon. On the flip side Well done to Sony, they out sold the 360 world wide. Great, again it shows how far sony have come with the ps3 and it's nice to see that all their investments in their AAA games and redesigning to make the system cheaper is really paying off for them. yes we know the US dose not = the world, but this is about US sales, it's NPD.. what do you expect. You guys always forget to throw that point up when talking about sales of the ps3 in japan don't you ?... pathetic
Official American sales data (aka NPD) is released every month and its been that way for years, so whats the fn problem. Why was this approved you say, lol, worldwide sales what, who gives a crap this article is talking about American sales and its stated in black in white. I think this place is rampid with PS fanboys and have a fit if ever, god forbid, the xbox actually comes out on top for once. Oh and I am going to a midnight launch to pick up GOW3 for my PS3....so don't even go there. Now grow the f up.
Weird... I don't see PS3 fans in the Mediacreate hardware sales complaining why its only in Japan.
....What happened to the Wii though, xbox 360 snuck past it, while it slept or maybe taking a little nap...
Everyone happy they all made a profit.
Wiis and PS3s are sold out inthe many retailers I called in my area. It's been like this since after christmas. You would think Nintendo would have this supply issue sorted out by now.
And with games like Mass Effect 1-2, Fable 2-3, KUF2, Alan Wake, Halo Reach, Gears, Splinter Cell 5, Rareware title etc, it was only obvious would happen And the best are not even out yet, Natal too Of course the 199$ price and XBLA help a lot too
surprising to me tho since they didnt have a mega bomb exclusive drop in feb.
It has a 96% metacritics score, far higher than any PS3 title, even the overhyped GOW3
Good for you DVD player let's bring backs VHS shall we.
thought it was worldwide! Just goes to show that the 360 has a very loyal fanbase in America, and I think the PS3 is picking up steam as well
Just so we're clear. Wii 360 and PS3 are all competing with each other right? because generally the attitude is Wii doesn't count when its ahead of the competition by 100-200k.
i thought the wii wasnt in direct competition with the PS3 and 360? lol, this is just US too anyways it was pretty close sales wise,
No one had Wii's in stock. In fact according to the Nintendo rep I spoke to, this Christmas was there biggest ever and they just ran out of stock, apparently all their north american warehouses were/are empty. I'd have to agree because we haven't had more than 12 units in my store since January.
