PS3 Just Passes 360 In Worldwide February Results

PlayStrum writes: "February saw an outstanding number for the Xbox 360 in North America, surpassing even the Nintendo Wii and claiming the month as the best February in the 360's history. Although the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii do seem to be experiencing major shortages in the US, it's still quite impressive to see such a big gap between Microsoft's console and every other one."

deadreckoning6662809d ago

LOL, the world is SOOOO overrated. America sales iz more important.

bioshock12212809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

But how does this person get his numbers?? For all we know this guy could be making it up do europe give official numbers?? Because I know the PS3 beats the xbox 360 in japan and the other way around in the US but Europe is a mystery.

I know US and Japan do give official numbers but does Europe never seen them so who knows how real this is and this is a PlayStation website so I'll take it with a grain of salt.

I mean, look at our healthcare, our peaceful stance in the world, and our non-polluting factories!

And don't forget our freedoms, why we can...

Bathyj2809d ago

USA likes to thinks is the bright glowing ball at the ceter of the universe, and while its true it is the only thing keeping the XB alive, its not as important as made out.

Last year XB beat PS3 by just over 400K, but in Japan alone PS3 beat XB by nearly 1.4 million.

Remember how they all used to say Japan didnt matter?

bjornbear2809d ago

according to this article anyway...its biased, for sure! xD

Well, in my book, coming from Europe and all

World >>>>>>>&g t; any country

but thats just me of course, I could be wrong

it IS possible that the over all population of a country can in fact buy more of a product than all of the other countries put together

however, the chances this occurs with video games and consoles are slim

so PS3 eff tee doubleyew

The real killer2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

NPD don't use Amazone or bestbuy numbers.
Allot of American PS3 buyers buys online.

I don't know what people see in the 360, the 360 is so overated in my opinion.

randomwiz2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

He says approximation.

@above
yeah, thats the problem. NPD actually doesn't track A LOT of important ones like amazon, or walmart. The only thing we can truly trust is shipped numbers from the manufacturer's themselves. I know some people would say we can't trust shipped numbers, but the fact of the matter is, shipped numbers are fair comparison because they do eventually get sold.

mikeslemonade2809d ago

Well there were PS3 shortages and 360 had mass effect 2, so yea it makes sense the PS3 just barely beat 360 worldwide. For this month Final Fantasy 13, God of War 3, and Heavy Rain will more than make it up for the PS3.

DMason2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

Are people really taking this site seriously? Its a broken Playstation blog with no statistics, facts, or hard data.

Its funny how fanboys shrug off legitimate gaming sites, but absorb and praise material from no-name overnight blogs that has the information that they want to hear.

Lightsaber2809d ago

"spin spin the sound I know so well"

PshycoNinja2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

but you dont question VGChartz's numbers?

Edit: If your going to disagree with me than please give me a reason why you disagree with my QUESTION. I was only asking a question that I wanted someone to answer.

damnightmare2809d ago

lmao I don't know how statistically correct the article is

But all you guys know that the PS3 outsold the 360 worldwide yet again.

This blog is pretty bad though lol

Random disagrees from both sides now, because they are afraid.

HolyOrangeCows2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

"UPDATE: We've added multiple sources below to give you a more precise representation as to where the numbers are coming from. We apologize for the inconvenience"

Watch as the ignorant xbox fanboys leave with their tails between their legs.
Xbox fanboy: Teh salez are of course the most impor.....whoops! I mean, err, Mass Effect 2!

N4BmpS2809d ago

Lmao @1.1 are you serious dude? That's the dumbest thing anyone can say, "the rest of the world is over rated" I think he was being sarcastic. Anyway that's a pretty nice gap in between 360 and PS3(127,662) not huge but pretty decent. even greater is the gap between the Wii and PS3 and 360. 411,960(Wii gap to PS3). 540,222( Wii Gap to 360). But they all did great to me so it doesn't matter. More gamers=more fun, unfortunately that could also mean more fanboy ignorance. SIGH

soxfan20052809d ago

The U.S. is, by far, the largest single gaming country in the world. Winning the U.S. is a MUCH bigger accomplishment than winning any other country.

Look at it this way. Would you argue that Roger Federer is NOT the best tennis player in the world because every other tennis player COMBINED has more wins than Federer has by himself?

otherZinc2809d ago

They have some inflated numbers over there & there is no real way to track those numbers.

beardpapa2809d ago

so do people here know just what stores exactly NPD track?

It'd be silly to look at statistics given to us on fruits if we're comparing apples to oranges and only 6 out of 10 stores total tracked seem to only carry apples over oranges. Likewise it's sorta silly comparing the # of Honda cars vs Toyota cars sold in the Alhambra-Pasadena-El Monte regions only, because there are more Toyota dealerships than there are Honda. Not to mention the biggest Toyota dealership (Longo) easily dwarfs all the Hondas in this same region.

Tony-A2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

Would that still matter if that's one of the only countries one console outsells the other in?

If the total worldwide numbers see things differently, just how powerful can the US really be? Especially in a bad economy...

SixZeroFour2809d ago

there are no real world wide numbers...just the 3 main territories...us uk and japan...but even that isnt the world

arny2809d ago

no crap ps3 and nitendo are doing good in japan cause its nitendo and sonys home turf so microsoft cant beat them.. america is ms home turf so they dominate

vhero2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

Still beats 360 worldwide though as it has every single month since launch nearly... 150k is 1/4 of the sales since 360 only sold 600k worldwide. Also who is still buying new Wii's? I rang up my local game shop this morning they have tons of preowned wii's in stock they cannot shift them.. They coming in thick and fast so much in fact they nearly half the price of a new console..

DARK WITNESS2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

@ PshycoNinja

well you people don't question VG charts when the numbers are in favor of the ps3 so VG must be legit....until the numbers are positive for the xbox, then it's not..... but then numbers are positive for sony again so it's all good with VG charts again... oh wait...

evrfighter2809d ago

oh this article makes my day. I kind of thought someone might do it but I didn't think it be made of this much fail.

I needz a LINK! Try ehre!!! gahhhhh we killed his internet connection!!!! quick get someonez to host this!! we NEED this article!!!!111!1

First HHG screws himself over today and now I get this. This is just extremely delicious.

Syronicus2809d ago

That the world does not stop at the North American borders. It always gets a chuckle out of me when I see the Xbox fans claim victory every time the NPD is released but they simply forget the other two reports that come out with the PS3 and Wii beating the 360 out every month. The differences always show the Wii first, PS3 second and the 360 dead last. World Wide numbers show that the 360 truly struggles to sell across boarders these days.

lelo2play2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

I would not take these numbers to seriously... one of his main sources is vgchartz.com... LOL

Only real numbers are from USA and Japan. Numbers from other countries are just made up for the month of February 2010.

Bathyj2809d ago

@arny

Thats just it. US is M$'s home ground but they are not dominating it by any means.

400K difference in a year is nothing. They were almost even. And all the while everyone says Japan doesnt matter in gaming anymore yet add USA and Japan together and PS3 is 1 million ahead

Japan and Europe are just as important as the US.

AAACE52809d ago

Lately I have noticed that there are no Ps3's or Wii's in the stores i've went to. I kinda thought that Ps3 sales would be high. I expect Wii sales to be high as well.

ps921172809d ago

Stop dissing on the US.

Anon19742809d ago

And Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony don`t report these numbers monthly. If he`s using something like vgchartz then he`s busted as well. VGchartz was over a million off the official numbers for the PS3 just last month. I doubt they`ve fixed that up yet.

I gotta call fake on this one.

Christopher2808d ago

While I totally agree that NA isn't the world, it is the location in which the majority of console and games are sold. Sony, no matter how well they sell, will need to increase their lead in NA the most to combat the difference in games sold, which is where both platforms make the most of their money.

oohWii2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

HEY LOOK EVERYONE! A place for PS3 fans to hang out and make each other feel better about themselves.

I knew someone would blog a feel good story to make you cry babies feel better. So pathetic. The funny thing is, since the 360 out sold the PS3 in the US, now all the PS3 fans now are pissed off at the 360, Microsoft, and the US.

Wow what a bunch of SORE A$$ "LOSERS"

Honestly, I have never in my life witness such a large collection of crying since I use to work in the pediatric ward at the hospital.

thebudgetgamer2809d ago

while i enjoy going from gears of war 2 to killzone 2 you spout crap and generalize 30 something million people based on things you read on the internet. have fun with that though.

Bathyj2809d ago

Actually oohwii, out of all the post I read in here so far, yours is by far the most whinney.

Read it a again and have a red hot listen to yourself tiger, you come off like 10 year old whose Dad put his Xb in the top cupboard for teabagging his little brother, and I dont mean in-game.

Grow up, shut up, or P*ss off. I dont care which you do, but please pick one.

KingME2808d ago

Hmmm...You were right about his comment being the whiniest until you made your comment. Your now ranks and the whiniest. You even appeared to be a bit pissed off at the end of your. I think oohwii was just trying to get a rise out of someone, and you gave him exactly what he wanted...lol

busbeeam2809d ago

You have to compare USA to whole Europe, 1 counrty is about the size of a state...I'm from europe (Germany) which fits into texas 2.5 times almost!
One thing I will say...I'm in NC right now and noticed that USA has low population for it's size, we have over 80 million people in Germany alone!!!

When the empire is under attack, the empire strikes back. Now,submit to the Dark Side B!tches

Tony-A2809d ago

Is that not what 360 fansites do every month?

"PS3 outsells 360"

"but 360 outsells PS3 in the US!!!"

pixelsword2809d ago

...with facts.

Ummm... I really don't consider that striking; more like correcting or clarifying.

Halo3 MLG Pro2809d ago

LOL! So true. Here come the abundance of sony fanboy sites with their damage control and lies. Remember the "Killzone 2 has 72% more polygons than Halo Reach?" LMAO! Been proven just another misinformed sony fanboy article. Oh btw, their are zero 360 fanboy sites.

This site has turned into a National Enquirer for gamers. Just pure make believe stuff.

This guy looks like he's just making up numbers as he types.

IdleLeeSiuLung2809d ago

LOL, The Empire Strikes Back before the Return of the Xbox 360!

bjornbear2809d ago

it can do a lot of damage

and clearly you and some others have suffered A LOT of damage

brain damage ='(

The real killer2809d ago

Typical 360 fanboy still use old crap like Milo3 MLG Pro.

Killzone 2 look stil better than gimped Reach.

silvacrest2809d ago

"Oh btw, their are zero 360 fanboy sites"

are you serious? lol, funniest thing i read all month, thanks for that

and FYI, to anyone who actually read the article its not really fanboyish, its just stating facts although no source was given

Halo3 MLG Pro2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

"...its just stating facts although no source was given"

So how do you know that these numbers are fact? Some juvenile site called playstrum that can't even load up correctly all of a sudden is going to have actual worldwide sales numbers??? LMAO! Now that's the funniest thing I read today. Thanks. :)

BTW, name one 360 fanboy site cuz I can give you a bunch of active sony fanboy sites. Playstation University, Dark Rider's childish site, Gamingthirst, PSextreme, etc...

Obama2809d ago

@ Halo3 MLG Pro

Reach graphic is nothing to brag about, and killzone 2 still looks better than Reach - a fact.

duplissi2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

@ halo mlg....

oh i dont know teamxbox.com,planetxbox360.com , burn360 and especially xboxkings.com......

honestly how old are you? cause your either young or dumb...

DMason2809d ago

With facts? Hmmmm, thats funny cause I dont see any actualy facts, statistics, or evidence. This "blog" looks like a damage control site, updated only when the spinning needs spun.

alphakennybody2809d ago

to be fair a bit, no one here is really acting any more mature, come one we're arguing over games. so your second guess is the right answer.

HDgamer2809d ago

Why are you even still alive? I thought your life came to an end when Forza 3 isn't being talked or played about. Oh that's right, your console died in a house fire with your gf aka porno movies.

duplissi2809d ago

@ eddy raja

lol, i suppose your right. i tend to take stuff on the internet more serious than i should anyway.

pixelsword2809d ago (Edited 2809d ago )

At the bottom of his article the poster listed his sources; unless you can get better ones covering the same regions, it's pretty much a wash to say this or that is more or less accurate.

But I tell ya' what, since I'm a fair man:

Using facts, can you prove him wrong? Can you prove that the 360 beat the PS3 worldwide, covering the same regions he did in his article? That's the issue above all, and the crux of the article.

You can't even say NPD is accurate, because they don't count many types of stores/purchases, so even then you're not getting the whole picture.

ReBurn2809d ago

You know what they say...vgchartz is only accurate when the PS3 is winning. Well, I don't know if that's what they really say. But it sure seems like it.
