Microsoft has officially responded to the NPD February video games sales results, and as expected the company spoke proud about its venerable console.
oh!!! Another news which states someone is better than someone! come on!
the tittle doesn't make much sense or is it just me? the tittle would imply that february was the best month in the history of the 360 period ignoring december and whatnot
Why the hell do the NPD numbers matter so much? I thought its all about the WW sales.. wierd.
Probably because they are being tracked, unlike worldwide sales. Even though they just provide US numbers they are based on retailers numbers. It's funny how some people want to ignore them and instead rely on sourceless reports about worldwide sales.
But the PS3 is still closing gap so whats the point?
now what would they do if they had a line up like sony? heavy rain, WKC, MAG etc? MS and their fans are easily pleased!! just through a good game every 6 months and they will be very happy!! they will even think they got the best and most games in the world!! @soda we know u r a 360 fanboy and we know that it is very easy to please u, 1 pokemon to u and u will be happy and quite! but u should know that every year with 1 year exception the ps3 sold few millions more than 360!! so when we hear unreliable sources says ps3 sold more world wide than 360 we know that is a sound logic and truth behind it!! any way i wont be surprised if ps3 catches up with 360 in this year!!
maybe the gap is closing but it is not closing fast enough for the ps3 to over take before MS move on to the next console. i.e does not matter about sales.
Closing the gap according to what numbers? Fantasy numbers for WW sales? @The Killer - You shouldn't talk about fanboyism. You're a religious fanatic. I can't take you or your comments seriously.
February has been a great month for almost all the consoles. Yes, Wii sales declined but they are still posting some serious numbers there. PS3 is outselling Xbox360 Worldwide and N$ Xbox360 has locked the United States of America so far this gen (at least when it comes to HD consoles). February is not supposed to be that big for either company but since all three console manufactures are doing so well, it seems that we are finally coming out of the recession. Slowly but surely, the video games industry is also starting to show improvements. It means a WIN for us gamers and that is what really matters!
Isn't this a dupe? Thought I already saw Greenberg respond saying all of them were sold in anticipation of Natal (lol).
FangBlade: Microsoft is an American company so American and some foreign investors also want to see how the company is doing in that region. Same goes for Sony, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Activision, etc in that area. Of course developers/publishers get far better industry numbers than the public does, for one, Canada is left out of NPD.
MS is corruption
sooo...if i understand, MS is beating his chest because Sony have a ps3 shortage right now...even when sony still have better sale worldwide? btw, npd dont even include canada or the rest of the world.... nuff said.
Let them cling to NPD while the world grows wiser.
Impressive. Most impressive. But you are not a Jedi yet.
The 360 is the one that outsold Wii in February.
your system is amazing, my favorite game of all time is going to release this Wednesday, fully remastered and cost only 800 pts, you know what im talking about and I cannot damn wait for splinter cell and sick looking Halo Reach
Halo is a sickness...lol.
ape007 and EvilMonkey hehehe, let's go Ape Crazy On N4g
For people outside north America, this article means nothing to you.
it means more than you can possible fathom... it shows that no matter what Sony does it can never overcome Microsoft in the NA region(the largest) and It keeps that gap from closing until the next major shift. For most developers in the NA and European region the numbers they look at are not World Wide. They look at NA and European numbers in conjuction... Japan is rarely more than a footnote for most Wester developers
above calm down lol, this is the first time MS passes sony and we are on march. Theres plenty of time for Sony to pass MS, specially with GT5 and Gow 3.
I think the gap will keep on shrinking.It would be interesting to see how much rrod has affected Microsoft's console sales.It can only help them inflate consoles sold by 200-300%.Everyone I know has purchased at LEAST 2 or 3 new xboxes. (ie:omg new chip-set, maybe THIS one wont get rrod too)...If rrod never existed would their numbers be so high in the U.S.?
is doing great in the us, other regions? not so much imo.
It's doing fine... it may be struggling in Japan but it's already passed the Xbox 1's numbers which is a good sign
Only place where the xbox is selling bad is Japan
Great work MS! I really liked the big injection of games XBLA has received the last months. The Blur beta is awesome as well. *runs for cover*
yeahhhh that blur beta is amazing so glad am not missing out on that when that comes out i will be getting that game,this game needs to be hyped up alot more. edit: i bet i will get psfanboys going but but you pay for it ROFL! i pay for good things!
yeah, im talking about you thrust
Now why don't you actually continue this streak for the rest of the year!? In other regions!?
We all know that the PS3 had shortages MS! Shortages in NA only. January, february and March and April Sony will also have shortages /s
king of software sales too.
biggest month in xbox history?? and it come in last place worldwide wp microsoft lol http://playstrum.spruz.com/...
@ The Killer You mentioning MAG and WKC?? Pls, dont own yourself. Heavy Rain was a great experience but MAG and WKC.. stop it!
And he said Xbox fans are easy to please LOL.
You serious? WKC and MAG are great games and you haven't played either of them, obviously. It's just like how the 360's best exclusive titles are Lost Odyssey and Crackdown.
Too bad the PS3 was bigger. (worldwide)
Xbox is dead in Europe and Asia.
Lol keep lying to yourself butthurt PSturd. Natal + Halo =haaaaaaa poor PS3rd
hahahaha you robotnik are a joke, it is huge here in the UK and i know it is big in france and holland.
Lol 360 isn't big in holland i am from holland and ps3 is mostly sold out, while the 360 bundles just gathering dust stop embarrassing yourself.
you making stuff up? just because shops have them in stock and ps3's out of stock thats gives you right to say the 360 isnt big. lol i have family in holland and it is big! you sony fanboys are getting worse and worse making things up. i have had both console's so am no fanboy i just say it how it is not bias in anyway where i can tell you are ps3 FANBOY i take everythin they say with pinch of salt.
To play ffxiii
February 2010 Sales - PS3 = 470,254 - 360,100(US) + 110,154(Japan) ;-P xBox 360 = 434,042 - 422,000(US) + 12,042(Japan) ;-D
so by your logic..how long til the ps3 cathes up to xbox360 in overall sales? your the same guy that says its this year! lets say the ps3 outsells the xbox by 100,000per month.thats 1.2million per year.xbox is roughly 6 million ahead.so bout 5 years. and im being generous.we know the ps3 does not outsell the xbox by 1.2million every year.if any year. so you can see that your numbers are highly misinformed dear boy.sorry, but even when MS says the xbox has 5 years left,the ps3 will still finish third this generation.
February Was The "Biggest In Xbox 360 History"....in North America. fixed.
"February Was The "Biggest In Xbox 360 History"....in North America. fixed." The US is the largest gaming market in the entire world, followed by the UK right now and those 2 regions belong to MS, so i would assume the original title is correct, and that your just an moronic fanboy trying to spin things. Guess what, you failed :) Go troll somewhere else!
biggest february for x360 ever in NA-62k more then ps3. in japan ps3 outsold x360 by 99k.
how many xboxes do you have Jason?
"...we had the biggest February in Xbox 360 history" ...because of shortages >.> http://www.gamesindustry.bi... http://www.vooks.net/story-...
Was Mass Effect released during that month?
But you are all forgetting, on N4G N.A = The World It doesnt matter if ps3 outsold xbox by 99,000 in Japan alone, in north america (world) xbox had its best month ever and outsold the ps3 by 62,000 so there, ner ner ner.
March will belong to Sony with God of WoW!
tons of xboxes laying around, so the shortages r very real and not just pr talk (at least around colorado). wonder how ps3 will do in the next couple of months with god of war (if they got the shortage issue fix, anyone know when thats happening? )
So was it solely Mass Effect 2 that propelled their sales? I really didn't think February was a big month for them outside of ME2 copies being moved.
big deal, its still a piece of crap, that I won't buy another one
so the ps3 out sold the 360 on its biggest month in history waaaw just goes to show how well sony is being taken i guess
I'm a bit surprised it was their biggest month in history..... it was February.... a slow month. The only reason they consider it the biggest was cuz they outsold the Wii for the first time since September 2007.
mass effect says hi dude is was no slow month march is gonna be a slow month not feb
why fight both are good,got games and have fun on them.even if i think my ps3 better why come on here and cry.i dont have a xbox but i want one.i like vidoesgames,my papa got me ps3 so i play ps3,just bcs msoft sell more doesn't make me enjoy ps less.Both big company they just wanted your money.
It came in last place in worldwide sales AGAIN. Don't these guys know when not to brag?
Do you have the worldwide official numbers??? Or are you just making up numbers as you go? NA are the only ones that get kinda close to official numbers. Although they do miss a lot of big names like Walmart.
In 1 country 1st place. And last place World Wide. Interesting.
Sony will NEVER pass the xbox 360 in America No matter what sony does, 25% price cut, new model, tons of ads, more exclusive games...and still in LAST PLACE. Amazing turn of events from last generation...WOW!
That's the way the wind blows. And quite frankly I'm not complaining. Crows from Asia are considered a very well made delicacy for fanboys. -End statement
lol i can understand people when they cheer for a sports team to win but for an electronic hardware? wow, people get a life for real.
Fanboyism is called.
Not fast enough it isnt
