To think its selling at this rate above the RRP of $299 as well, just imagine how crazy the $199 slim will sell. Plus MS will likely cut both slims to $149 and $249 for the Kinect launch.

GWAVE2607d ago

Kick me if I'm wrong, but wasn't supply for the system very limited when it launched?

It seems Microsoft took a page from Nintendo's book as to how to make your system sales "increase".

cobraagent2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

it is more propably the "gifts" they have given to the attendees of their conference. But you have to consider that a lot of people with an arcade xbox 360 wanted a new one too

secksi-killer2607d ago

but havent you and all the other sony turds being saying that sony have been having supply problems since the start of 2010????

when sony have supply problems its a genuine problem, but any other company do it, they are trying to increase demand??

you are a pathetic fanboy gwave

Wow!

n4gno2607d ago

amazon.com = us only

the only place where people are interesed by xbox (in 2010, with a better hardware ps3, bluray, 3D, move and more & better exclusives)

secksi-killer2607d ago

did you get paid to write that???

i have both, but if sony are paying people to talk shit for them, sign me up

MorganX2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

...

siyrobbo2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

this article has nothing to do with the ps3, so why mention it? if its that good why aren't you playing it instead of coming here making stupid comments?

MorganX2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

When you find out where to sign up let me know. I don't care which side it is as long as I get paid. But I'm not interested in Demos, Betas, Wallpapers, Avatars, or Themes. I need cold hard cash.

Edit: OK, I'll settle for 75,000 MS Points or a voucher for a free PS3 Slim with Wireless-N when its available.

so we will see the European sales increase in july, and the North America in june.

Why are Sony fanboys so jealous and envious of 360? If we wanted to hear or talk about PS3 in every 360 thread we would ask. Personally I don't care about it or any of it's games because they do not interest me the slightest bit. For me 360 is where it's at and this is good news if true for MS and it's gamers. Personally I'm waiting on a Reach bundle before picking one up myself.

Gene2607d ago

Who is jealous? Give us reasons why people would be jealous? Comon if I have a bluray a HD tv amazing games there not jealous it's mob mentality pick on the weak.

beans2607d ago

Why so defensive? If your not jealous then why reply? Sounds to me like your extremely jealous and need to feel accepted by telling people what you have. Why don't you give me your address so i can go take that TV and put it good use.

Ron_Burgundy2607d ago

wait till people are done trading in there old 360s, it will settle down :P

MorganX2607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

I don't know. I sold 2 Xboxes and I'm PS3 now. But I'm tempted. Really tempted. Wireless-N, ESPN, the ease of Netflix, XBLA, Gears 3. It's going to be hard not to buy the Arcade at a minimum, especially if rumors of $149 are true. I just wish there was no brick.

I sold my first to get an Arcade w/HDMI. I sold the second because it was too loud. Couldn't watch a movie and hear any quiet passages. PS3 is slient, plus Blu-ray. But, I haven't bought any Blu-ray movies lately. Been downloading, Netflixing, and watchin'/recordin' OTA HDTV.

Magic the Gathering is taking forever to get to PSN too. There's already 2 expansions on XBLA. I played expansion one, but not 2 yet. I have a feeling it won't be long before I'm dual console again.

XBOX 360 S is looking hot right now.

OneSneakyMofo2607d ago

That's probably why it had to automatically shut down. Hey ohhhh!

Fanb0y2607d ago

Oh, you just went there...

IdleLeeSiuLung2607d ago

You are indeed one sneaky mofo trolling around here!

Bluemaster772607d ago

I honestly didnt expect microsoft to see a sales spike until the holiday

jwatt2607d ago

I mean it's a redesign that looks pretty cool plus it has added wifi so it makes since for it to be selling.

Bluemaster772607d ago

yea i guess your right , but its just that there isnt much exciting in terms of software at the moment

n4gno2607d ago

why on earth people would prefer that thing to a better ps3 ? (on every level)

marketing ? propaganda ? us only probably.

AreIYOUISERIOUS2607d ago

Maybe because neither system is better.
Each one has flaws and each one has pros.

Strikepackage Bravo2607d ago

because the PS3 is not better, especially with this new hardware, the 360 is superior in everyway except booray.

And if the USA was the only place 360 was selling PS3 would have passed it long ago, 360 is selling quite well in EU as well, plus it owns AU and UK, so STFU and stop trolling idiot, PS3 is in 3rd for a reason, its the LESS fun of the two consoles period.

asyouburn2607d ago

so by your logic, the Wii (in first place) is the most fun console? its all about the games. how can group A's games be less fun than group B's? all this time i thought it came down to developers making the game fun, not what machine runs it. but i guess your right. crayola sells more crayons than the competition, so drawing with them must be more fun than regular crayons, right? in the end, it all comes down to what you draw with it.

Solidus187-SCMilk2607d ago

people who were deciding which one to buy came to N4g for info.

When they saw all the ps3 fanboys who spend all day trolling 360 articles they thought that the ps3 games must be pretty dull, since even the most die hard sony fanboys spend all day in 360 articles.

Mr Marbles2607d ago

I beg to differ, 360 has games coming THIS year, the competition's line up is not getting a boost till 2011. Also keep in mind that if you dont have a 360 the entire 360 library is new to you, and finally, you have the existing customers who have a bunch of games already but just want a console with a valhalla chipset and sexy exterior.

No surprise this thing is selling well, how could anyone not have expected this?

Bluemaster772607d ago

You do indeed have a point i was blinded by E3 and that lack luster showing i forgot to consider old software

IdleLeeSiuLung2607d ago

There is a lot of good upcoming games to both exclusives and multi-platforms apart from the old stuff that is a bargain now!

MGRogue20172607d ago (Edited 2607d ago )

I'm still thinking on whether I should upgrade from my Elite 120GB or not.. : /

munish232607d ago

I have an elite 120GB as well, I was planning to get the slim as well, but I decided to wait. I might get one if there is a bundle with the Kinect closer to the holidays, I have a lot of room in my hard drive still. Wifi is not a big deal for me because I use a wired connection.

jdktech20102607d ago

I honestly wouldn't.....doesn't seem like a big enough leap especially for all 300 since you can't preorder the gamestop deal. I would say keep what you have for now but I konw I'm trading up from the 60 GB Pro to the new one as soon as they get some stock in
