According to June NPD figures, Microsoft sold nearly 100,000 more Xbox 360s than Sony sold PlayStation 3s, but both consoles' sales still lag far behind the money-printing Nintendo Wii.
People still buying Gameboy Advance WTF.
But still the PS3 was lagging behind bad, even if it sold more than it had in April.
It doesn't matter. Sony still needs a couple million to catch the 360.
it looked liked the PS3 and the 360 went up and the Wii stayed the same, pretty positive if you looked at it that way
The wii stayed the same because nintendo still can't meet up with demand. If there were more stocks, that number would definitely increase.
Its possible for the PS3 to beat July 360 sales but i doubt it. Can it make up that much difference in two to three weeks?, PS3 sold 5 thousand more for one week theres little over two weeks to be counted left in this month for sales; one very soon and one later on.
The sales for July will probaly be closer between the 360 and the PS3.
But I still dont think PS3 will out sell the 360 (July). But according to info on this site lately it has been, so I guess we will see in a few weeks.
But anything possible
(besides anyone outselling the Wii that is, for now at least).
Ps3 sales in the dust every month from then on out.OUCH!
anyway i beleive 360 has got 2007 in the bag but as for next years ps3's heavy hitters will move consoles like no other one of which i will be gettin myself
Not attackin you but i just dont see what games are coming out .honestly i;m just confused wat come out this year and wat comes out next ...a simple link will surfice
Sony's only hope in 2007 is that with the price cut and games coming that sales pick up and atleast stay close to XBOX 360's. Again, XBOX 360 price cut isn't confirmed yet, and how much it will be isn't known.
I'm pretty sure Sony makes more money on the PS2 hardware than M$ on the 360.....
I mean the PS 3 literally has only a few good games out, and has been constantly bashed about how multi-plat games look better on the 360. So, uh, yeah big suprise... Good for the 360. The Wii, however, is REALLY starting to piss me the f#ck off. Its not really that big a deal. Sheesh, I mean you waggle around a grey stick and rotate a numcheck (or whatever they call it). Amazing, oh yeah, and the graphics suxs. But still, give credit where credits do, right? Nintendo was at the breaking point and they chose to market at the casual consumer for a good price so, guess what, they won (for now, at least).
PS. Come to think of it the sales ARE kind of suprising considering all the anti-MS news being posted lately. You'd think Halo, Mass Effect, and Bio had all switched and became PS 3 EXCLUSIVES instead.
It is all about casual games.So less money will be spent developing the Maddens, Forzas and God of Wars. That isn't right we have been supporting this industry for decades. Now fanboyism aside MS, Sony still see us wtf is nintendo doing for us?
IF the PS3 beats the 360 next month, the npd post will be flooded with sony's fanboys in the first minute alone but this post seem to be taking a while to pick up..... another under 100k performance for the ps3 not good, but lets see what happens after 60GB clearance sales
Your right... The july sales will probalby be a much closer battle... and a much more heated flameware post than this
These people need games to keep them preoccupied on something other
than 360 bashing on this site.Hurry Sony,please.
Just watch below.....here they come in droves.
EDIT to 8.4 HAZEBLAZE,what are you smoking dude(no pun intended).
It's 100% the exact opposite of what you stated.
You need to get a grip on reality son and please,take your Sony B.S. goggles off.
clearance sales could help Sony stay close untill the middle of next month. We'll see if the bargon shoppers have the numbers(like thinking launch spikes are sales trends) and if the price of PS3 was the real problem or if its the games or if popular opinion shifted out of Sony's favor the ratio is key with these factors.
EDIT: #8.4 lol.
If 360 sold 100k more than PS3 in a month that means PS3 is out sold by around 25k a week. I think it will have close to 3 weeks of clearnce sales at the end of this month, lets say PS3 beats the 360 by the sam 5k amount for two more weeks; the upcoming stats and the one for the end of the month thats 15k and this is assuming the volume of bargon shoppers is as great when the clearence first started. The volume could be looked at as a launch type of spike at first.
Unfortunately, a lot more PS3 bashing takes place on these posts than 360 bashing. Most PS3'ers only check out the news relevant to the PS3. But I've noticed a lot of 360 fans 'invading' PS3 news to bash for no reason. For a system with more games, it strikes me odd that they seem to spend less time playing :-S
Apparently you don't go into the 360 news comments very much. I would say that there are an even number of stupid flamers on each side and they show up practically everywhere.
i want to see those numbers i haven't been on in awhile oblivion is just to much god dam fun just bought all the house i like the one in anvil even though it is the cheapest but theres a little hideout chamber down there
Nice list power of Green
opps bad click ment to reply below :-(
The XBox 360 has is First person shooters this year is almost over and the XBox 360 wont have that much great sales as it is doing this year considering the PS3 turn is coming, lets see all the best games are coming in 2008 and the XBox 360 sales will be totally dry when that time comes its like what 4 months away and of course the XBox 360 fans are going to be worried when that time comes and not even Halo 3 is going to save there sales.
So Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Blue Dragon, and Lost Oddyssey (among others) is "wont have that much great sales"? Hmmm...
and i understand, Says You. You don't really believe the utter crap that you just posted, You just wants some ATTENTION. You poor baby.

You can start to realize from these known or mentioned games not even counting the games in secret why MS wanted to focus on the devs that will have their games ready to show off this holliday season.
Its such an important time in the small scaled back E3 to sale games for the devs that risked so much for MS this yea; why push and rush other devs so they can show off games months down the road wasting time on games that won't be ready this year handi capping their own success.
Not hear to sound like xbox fans but I think MS did a great job in June. But keep in mind, it was july when MS announced the 3 year warranty and had sales spike, then sony dropped the price for the ps3. I am willing to bet the ps3 outsold the 360 in july....Good month MS !
heres a question.
WHY THE FU(K does ANYONE CARE???
Is anyone here working for MS, or SNE, OR NIN??? Who gives a crap about how many consoles sold for each company?? YOU KNOW WHO CARES?? MS SNE AND NIN CARE, BECAUSE its THEIR COMPANY!!
DAMN, BUY YOUR CONSOLE AND BE DONE WITH IT. WHO gives a CRAP if someone else has it or NOT!!
And before you start saying, that I would be asying somehting differnt if the PS3 was in the lead, WELL I WOULDNT. If PS3 Sells a billion, there is no extra money in MY POCKET!!!
People are gettin on here and are actually talking about the sales of the consoles, like they might LOSE money or something. I LOVE MY PS3, and I dont GIVE A RATS ASS if NO ONE ELSE buys one from NOW ON. Because it aint goin NO WHERE, its HERE TO STAY, and the games are gonna be FANTASTIC!!
This a NEWS site, buddy. That means (for those of you who don't know) that users here comment about gaming related news, and the NPD game sells is an example of gaming NEWS. ANyways, why the f#ck are YOU here, then.
HAVE YOU EVER TRIED ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES.
You've been absent lately. Did you graduate from hating people for owning an Xbox360 all of a sudden? Have fun with your box, I'll have fun with mine. Awesome. I'm glad it's come to this.
I'll buy your box eventually, when the AAA games are out.
These sales are completely unpredictable, each console is going to go up and down in sales as the months go buy.
Key word here is June, July is going to be a totally different matter, PS3 was outselling the unstopable Wii at one point shock horror :)
But i`m not into the wii. I love my 360. And I will get a Ps3 when the price comes down to $399. The wii to me is nothing more than a gimmick. I don`t see any purpose for me to buy a console with xbox 1 strength. I`m a hardcore gamer and that spells 360 or ps3. No pun intended wii fans so don`t kill me for my opinion.
how sales stats always are, at least worldwide stats.
Maybe this month will be different.
I'm waiting on the July numbers as well but I do kind of wonder just how much improvement we'll see. I'm pretty sure the PS3 will sell 150k+ but I'm still uncertain that it will actually outsell the 360. I know there have been various reports of it being sold out, but the 360 seems to have picked up in sales last month too. I do think the PS3 will outsell the 360 for the holidays if it sees another price drop & will be outselling the 360 on a regular basis by holiday 08... but for the time being, it's still kind of pricey and a lot of people are content holding on to their ps2's for another year.
you DO know that the PS 3 "clearance sell" is just to get rid of 60 GB PS 3's, right? By the holiday, there will only be 1 SKU, and it will cost $600 bones (that's alot, people. Also, I dont't mean to burst your bubble (after all this is my opnion) but the 360 will OWN this holiday. Its almost a given (I could be wrong... on second thought, no, I think not), just look at the stellar games coming out. Go on any website, except the PSM, and you will not find ONE PS game coming THIS year that is more popular than Mass, Halo, or Bioshock. Not ONE.
Uh-huh. You know a link wouldn't hurt. And trying to use THIS site as a source, please man, you and I know both know the temperature level only pertains to much stuff is posted about that game. I'm talking about MAJOR sites.
Go on Gamespot, IGN, Gamespy, Gamestats... Go on, look.
Actually you're wrong there on a few accounts. Number one, the one sku will not cost $600. The $600 sku now includes a bundle, it has already been hinted that further details will be released for the Christmas plans... meaning that further announcements are to come but most obviously there will be a non-bundle sku.
Secondly, Halo 3 is widely antcipated but the PS3 has games coming out that are more widely anticipated than Bioshock and Mass Effect. Just looking at this site you'll see that the PS3 games are more popular. Any website you visit and there is more buzz around Heavenly Sword, Lair, Ratchet & Clank: TOD, Little Big Planet, Uncharted, Haze & UT3 than most of the 360 titles. When it comes to the games, the PS3 has the win easily... it's only obstacle is price.
good for the 360. but way better for the ps3 .. they did a good job at e3 and the sales show that.
i dont know but i think the ps3 may have outsold the 360 this month cause they have been sold out at a lot of places but who knows, we will have to see.
You will eventually see a sales for both the PS3 and 360 this holiday season, with games such as Halo 3, Mass Effect, rock band, GH3, and so on. The 360 will double it's sales with a price drop and Halo 3 by Christmas.
2007 will not be the year of Sony and Microsoft. It's the Year of Nintendo. As much I don't like Wii due to the gaming preferences, I have to give credit to them for coming out with a total new experience(still BS to me) that created a storm in gaming market. Good job bringin in the casual gamers.
is doing some crazy business and even more suprising is the top software titles for the month were mostly Nintendo. I still can't believe they are counting WiiPlay because isn't that bundled with the console?
I just hope that the developers continue to support the hardcore/graphic wh0re gamers and not all turn into mini-games with crap graphics. It seems Nintendo is hitting homeruns at the cost of deep experiences and technology advancements. If the market shifts to catering to grandmothers and 13 year olds it will be a sad day for the hardcore gaming crowd. Sounds tempting if they can cut their production budgets in half and reap all the sales benefits.
Just remember this! Everytime a Wii is sold a little puppy dies!
aside from halo, and cod4(is that even this year) what other shooter is coming out this holiday season ..seriously i cant even think of anything else
Dont Hate Jump in then in 08 Play Beyond ......o yea F the Wii
F#ck the WIi, Honeal. Seriously, I think you just came up with a slogan, dude. Anytime some sh!tty Wii news article comes up- BAM: F#ck the Wii, that and Nintendo's whole "we don't care about hardcore gamers" philosophy. It should be more like "we can't AFFORD to care about Hardcore gamers".
Ps. I'm just kidding. I'm sorry if I offended anyone here who likes the Wii. Really.
Edit: To Ohayes
"I wonder how this will affect console development in the next generation, will it be more about cool features and a cheap price point than graphical superiority."- Oh, please God no. Keep the graphics
don't forget Bioshock.
not that it's your "typical" FPS, but it's a FPS none-the-less. There's alot of games coming out for both consoles that are way outside the realm of FPS though. It seems like there's going to be more variety this holiday season than ever before. Good news for us all.
the last 2 months. He literally had to get in line, at like 8am in the morning for a chance at one. It amazes me, there is still not much on shelves. I think Nintendo is shipping just enough to sell out to keep the hype/craze going. I mean how much are they really pumping out and shipping?
Of course, sales for PS3 and Xbox 360 will be up this Holiday. I wonder where everyone will stack up, after a year, roughly.
Bundles, bundles, bundles will sell this Holiday. With the wii being cheap, I can imagine, it, will take away from sales of the other 2. I keep telling people, around the Holiday season, "PRICE MATTERS", as much as some like to think otherwise.
It's been a while since I've complained about lack of games, and to have so much games coming out for waht I currently own)360Wii( the truth is, after buying my 46 inch Samsung 1080P TV, I won't have much left for games....
so lets see you are saying that xbox360 only haves fps really so why x360 haves already more than ps3 games in just 07 alone like rts 6 rpg 9 sports 360 is always better at sports virtuaL life 4 fighting games 8 and in fps is just over the top and ps3?? what rpgs for thise year??? thats right 0 how many rts thats right 0 how many virtual life 0000 how mant board games 000 so tell me who is the shooter only console now oo ps3
the 360 will be $199 $299 $399 and ps3?? ooo shoot $499 $599 and most of the games are coming are both consoles so tell me whats a better choice a blu ray player i dont care about movies and about mgs4 mark my word that it will come to 360 after the ps3 but it will
I could swear the one with rights to the franchise and creator of the game said it wouldn't...must have been an update I didn't catch...
A console with unique features and a far lower price point is certainly a recipe for success with the wii, I wonder how this will affect console development in the next generation, will it be more about cool features and a cheap price point than graphical superiority.
PS3 is $600.
x360 is $400
PS3 > x360.
stinky pile of dog sh*t > shaka2k6
We will probably see a VGcharts lie soon to try and cover for the PS3s poor sales. Face it Droids it don't matter with rings of death because people just like the 360 more. It has more games, better online service and over all better entertainment system. Don't forget the dedication from MS to fix problems rather than sweep them under the rug and biggest of all MS has yet to give a price drop (that will be pure pwnage) and Halo isn't even here yet OUCH!!!
Even though Sony is giving you some games now, it's just to little to late. The people who are tired of waiting have moved on to bigger (Wii) and better (360) things. LAIR could score a perfect 10 but it still won't help the PS3. Every King loses his crown and every empire falls and every champion will go down.
It's just the Xboxs turn to shine boys, you had last round while the Xbox had 2nd and Nintendo had 3rd. You guys just assumed Sony would domanate again but just ask Sega, Atari and 3DO how that can go.
Now you guys will probably take my last bubble but I don't care (never have) because as a gamer (a true gamer chooses a team GO CHIEFS!!!) you got pwned.
EDIT: below "All Sega did was games" Huh? Sega master, Sega Gen, Sega CD, Sega 32bit, Sega Saturn and Sega Dreamcast? All Sega did was games?
??? youre calling a "victory" (if one could even say its a personal victory that one company trumps another...seeing as they have no stake in it)on a console that hasn't even been out for a year...That's a little ridiculous..And your Sega analogy not so good...All Sega did was games, so if they get off to a bad foot, money is short...Sony has their feet in much more than the video game industry. You shouldn't forget that..Sony is able to go dollar for dollar with MS any day of the week
EDIT: Youre quite the moron...I realize this...When I said games it was OBVIOUS I meant everything dealing with VIDEO GAMES...IE SYSTEMS/CONSOLES, HANDHELDS, SOFTWARE...I went even further to say Sony is involved in more than just the video game industry...Sega was not outside the video game industry, so if they had a bad start there the money wouldn't be coming from anywhere else...How old are you??
EDIT for Below: Wow...look how upset you just got over a false statement against MS...And I'm the fanboy??? Wow seriously, just wow you think I insulted your mother or something
Are you stupid? Sony can go toe to toe with M$ with money? Moron, Sony's market capitalization is about 52 billion dollars, Microsoft's is about 300 billion!!!!! Your a stupid fanboy who doesn't know crap about the real world. Just cuz you think Sony is god, don't make it so.
Microsoft claims that they have over 5 million Gamers playing HALO on the XBOX 1 and Xbox Live.Once HALO 3 release in SEPTEMBER how many of those 5 million GAMERS are going to BUY a XBOX 360? I see 3 million or more.
Microsoft and Sony "claim" a lot...I know quite a few that were playing Halo on the Xbox that have already purchased a 360...That 5 million figure is very optimistic, but I wouldn't bank on seeing Xbox numbers soar an additional 3-5 million after the initial release of Halo 3
I think 3 million easy.
ps3 price drop was july 9th so there should be a big difference
Not rocket science, just a good old fashion whipping.
XBOX 360 = better games
XBOX 360 = better online service
XBOX 360 = better value $400 VS $600
The key to victory is no secret.
There may be a better game library for the 360 at the moment although I believe that will change in the next 6 months and it will even up. I think your point over value for money is far too sweeping a statement and a load of rubbish, I bought my PS3 as a games console and blu ray player so it comes as a bargain to me. I'm also confident that it will not break unlike the 360 which my little bro had 3 of before he gave up on them, the little guy was actually in tears at the end. Don't insult peoples intelligence by saying you get good value for money with the 360 when so many people have had reliability issues with them.
I don't care if the Wii sells one billion consoles, it still is crap to me and full of minigame games for retards.

What are you f***ing talking about?
If the Xbox 360 is abundant this hollidays is in RPG's not FPS (Mass Effect, Blue Dragon, Lost Odissey,Eternal Sonata) , even BioShock is half RPG!!!
And 2008 looks as brigther as 2007 to 360 in games, lets see: Fable 2, Too Human, Alan Wake, Banjo Kazooie 3, even Gears of War may be waiting as the bomb for the next MS showing!
I think you'll see the effects of E3 and the price drop kick in over the next couple of months and the gap will close a bit although I still think until the games come 360 will lead. Good to see the PS3 sales picking up in general even if they do still lag behind 360.
So after the pricedrop of PS3 is gone again, up to 600 dollars in USA 80 GB HDD and in Europe the 600 Euro 'package' is gone also...
We're back to usual business. World wide the PS3 being outsold by 100k to 200k monthly. Nice job
dude ... calm down. you'll get your good 360 games.
"So after the pricedrop of PS3 is gone again, up to 600 dollars in USA 80 GB HDD and in Europe the 600 Euro 'package' is gone also...

The 80GB model will take up the same price as the 60GB model in the US if the 60GB model sells out quickly (They have enough stock to last until Christmas at their current sales rate). The European bundle will last till Christmas. The 80GB model is by then introduced and will be the same price as the 60GB was originally unless there's a price drop over here in Europe.
Then the Europeans are apparantely going to be given a 120GB model next year, which will enter the US market a bit later in mid-2008 I think.
The price drop can't disappear lol. The 80GB will most probably be the same price as the 60GB model (In US) if they sell out quickly as this will help to push the sales further.
The 360 sales figures won't go back up if they drop substantially because that shows that people have bought a 360 and have moved onto one of the other consoles. You can't sell something at the same rate forever. The PS3 will catch up and overtake it's just a case of when and what MS will do to keep their overall sales higher, first of all they need to find a way to MAKE MONEY and dropping the price will only make that worse.
June was great and all and yes I was expecting the 360 to outsell the PS3 in June. With the game show at E3 from Sony and the price drop I'm sure it'll be a closer thing this month.
The PS3 monthly sales will be above the 360 sales come Christmas because loads of people will have bought a 360. The 360 will have been out for 2 years by December so the PS3 will be the next big thing to get for a lot of people. Don't get me wrong a lot of people will be buying the 360 and Wii as well, it's just that the PS3 is the newest of the three when you consider it wasn't officially available everywhere till the European release date of late-March.
I don't think the PS3 will have a higher total sales stat than that of the 360 by the end of this year. Maybe mid to late 2008 the PS3 will overtake it, but not as soon as the end of this year. Nah I don't think so.
Then again I could be wrong. Surprise me Sony.
