A look at the global sales through to consumers, and change in sales performance, of the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 over comparable periods (up to June 26th 2010) for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
The PS3 is dominating HD consoles sales in 2010. 2010: Xbox- 3,868,774 PS3- 5,051,839
wow the PS3 sales so far have surpassed all previouse years and we are only half way done with the year
no... you are reading it wrong.. all the figures or for the same time periods.
But is only in America? @Focker-420 ¿Oh really? Then is confirmed with an estimation PS3 is outselling.
^^^ Those are worldwide sales.
^^^ those are made up sales. we should only believe numbers that come from the companies themselves. which show the ps3 is closer than npd or vgcharts dare to suggest
kowenicki, oh another invasion from vgchartz yay, it's so funny to see you lot in denial, I have moved my dialy commenting over here because of your bias, x360s release is not impressive, just look at everything MS did, and it still did not outsell the ps3s release, I really don't think there is anything else MS can do now it will end up in third, ps3 is outselling x360 by loads so far this year and that boost you got won't last for long, not to mention GT5 will sell millions of ps3s.
Too bad it's VGchartz. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to see competition getting really heated. And real numbers probably are not THAT far, but I really wouldn't get excited over VGchartz.
It's all we got at least for now, those numbers must be taken as "estimates"....
PS3's very much on track to outsell 360 a lot this year --------- On a side note, i see so many people complaining about VGChartz. And i know why, i know its not fully accurate. But instead of moaning, use a different source. If there is one. I personally dont know of any other global sales data site. If there is one, use that instead. If there isn't, then people should stop moaning, because unfortunately, its the best we got until the fiscal data comes through
That's like having a broken clock. It's accurate twice a day. VGChartz is accurate when they update data with official NPD numbers. But I agree, since no one else makes estimates, they might be the best source available.
well yeah, like you said, vgchartz update their estimates with accurate figures once the official data is out. So if your looking at historical sales data on vgchartz then it should be fine. In theory. Its just the present day sales they estimate. But like i said, its the best we have at the moment. I wish people who go "OH TEH VGCHARTZZZZZ" would just shut up and find a better source if they think vgchartz suck so much
npd numbers are not accurrate either, as they dont include a lot of the big companies. nor online sales.
While I agree that VGchartz is often inaccurate, what's "official" about NPD numbers? NPD numbers are just their best guess, and they're often proven wrong when the companies themselves release their internal figures. There's nothing official about NPD numbers. The only numbers you can count on to be accurate are the numbers released by the companies themselves, even though NPD numbers are generally a good guideline that even the companies themselves refer to on occasion.
Alot of the 360 sales are re-buyers cause the RROD and RDOT
probably more than once too.
that is just ridiculous lol
I still say the hardware strategy is perfect for the 360 year in and year out.. Up by 9 Million in Amarica Down by 4 million in Japan Pretty close everywhere else And that is before 360s dropped.. If they get some sales in Japan this year after Slim that will be icing on the cake but it won't mean much either way. Other than Japanese made games..Japan isn't much a games sales factor at all Halo Reach & Gears 3 will do blockbuster numbers without 1 japanese sale. Multiplats that do crazy numbers of the 360 like Call of Duty don't rely on Japan either... Fable 3..Fallout 3..RPGs still won't need Japan.. It'll be interesting to see how Japan reacts to Kinect..since 360 Slim got a positive reaction.. The plot is starting to thicken..September through January 2011 will be the most interesting sales months we have seen in years.. Evil
You just forgot GT5. EU is a PS territory and it will be even more when GT5 lands.
have fun playing with 8 million 10 year olds.
Nah..didnt forget EU..As long as the 360 stay competitive in Europe and the rest it wont matter if the PS3 edges Micrsoft by a few thousand.. Japan is the only huge difference out there and it is what it is.they either buy an American product or they dont..the country is still not even close to the biggest market for games sales this gen
@raz And you forgot Japan, EU+JP are PlayStation Territories and Even More when a Gran Turismo Game Comes Out...
Are much closer with the 360 at 34 Million and the PS3 at 34.5M. However, there a far more PS3 customers than 360 customers. This is because many 360 owners own multiple 360s (RROD replacement, extra rooms, back up, etc.) but few PS3 owners own more than one. For example, the recent jump in 360 sales due to liquidation prices of the "fat" version, were by consumers who already owned 360s.
Well, it's unlikely the PS3 will outsell the 360 again this year. The new model boosted the 360's sales way above the PS3's, and it hasn't even released in Europe yet. And Kinect is set to sell millions of 360s to new casual customers this holiday. You really are betting against the odds if you think the PS3 will have sold more units by the end of the year.
gt5 will piss on your slim
that's the ***est show ever to be appear on T.V in the history of Animated T.V shows
PS3 kicking butt going up every year and wiping the floor with 360 but according to MS the 360 beets it every month. Hmmmm..
Oh brother...Vgchartz is always way off. The numbers are so skewed, it's pathetic. They should just change the name of their site to PS3Chartz and be done with it. The numbers are so inflated for the PS3 that it's embarrassing that you guys would even consider them factual.
Christmas is a big year for all three consoles. Those will be the BIG numbers.
Christmas shopping season is all year?!? Wow!
Lol i didnt read his comment the litteral way until i read your comment. Though you obviously know what he meant.
Bu bu bu...it's vgchartz.
vgchartz will always suck
Looks like the NPD numbers hurt someones feelings :'(
I hope not, because it only says what we all already know; that he PS3 is outselling the 360 worldwide.
vgchartz always show the same article with updated numbers every time NPD shows their numbers no matter what or no matter who sold more so yah go troll somewhere else
The Wii always strong, and the PS3 always improving.
The Wii is kicking ass and taking names. Then again fanboys we don't care about vgchartz unless it looks good for our console of choice.
if vgchartz supports one console, the others will jump up and down and say that vgchartz is nothing but the wet dream of an xbox fanboy perma banned from a site whos name escapes me. but when vgchartz supports their console, its ok because there is no other site ti go by...lol gotta love n4g
there is no way to verify numbers, so in the end you have to take it or leave it the only thing that is interesting about it, is that they wrote a subjective article underneath in which they stated that interest for the slim has dropped and may reached it's average floor. That is a bit unfair, since Sony, every head of major studios and the head of Gamestop all acknowledged severe shortages of the ps3 so I wouldn't be so quick to say that they hit their average floor. No one will know that until later.
They've already fixed the shortage issue. That's why VGC said that.
they may not be having shortages anymore, but that has been in the past month to month and a half. As of May, gamestop ceo in a meeting said they still had shortages, etc. So even if they don't have shortages any more, it is unreasonable to make a presumption for the whole year.
the 360 barely outsold the PS3 in America(only by about 40,000). and that is with the shortages still happening for PS3.
The PS3 isn't having shortages anymore. These numbers are with a full stock of PS3's.
The NPD was for May right? Didn't PS3 have shortages till June?
It was for June and the shortages stopped at the end of March.
Great article by WHO? This is some guy who clearly loves the PS3. What a joke. I can skew and throw numbers around and post them all I want. And once again, the PS3 crowd flocks and rallies around anything and everything that points in their favor, again, what a joke.
And you people care about console sales and why???????
Sales equal dev support and resources, now, GTFO
You say this in every sales article! Not that I don't agree, but nothing you say will change it. That is why, aside from this, I never comment in these articles... but maybe nothing I say will change that you say this in every sales article, so feel free to continue unimpeded by me! Edit: I also comment to say VGChartz sucks and gives fake numbers.(form a PS3 owner in a good sales for PS3 article)
You guys kill me if it favors your system you back it up , if it doesnt you complain Vg is not accurate, GTFO
Oh no not these articles again thought vgc was done with them, oh I see just because the PS3 was destroying the 360 weekly the biased writer was to depressed to make them. 360 sales are unimpressive MS needs to sell a $149 sku and a $249 sku both include two games and release the 360S that resembles the old PS3 looks and feature wise (that's why they sold a lot in Japan they thought it was a PS3 they were purchasing) to match PS3 Slim sales from last year in USA in which the PS3 launched the slim for $299 and discounted the old 80gb fats to $299 that's it, that's all sony did they weren't practically giving the consoles away like MS "Japanese confirmation that 80% of the sales this week were for the 360S prove a healthy appetite for the new shiny model" notice there is no link for this information typical VGC highly doubted considering that Japanese retailers were selling the arcade for about the price of a new PS3 title so stop posting false information as you do with your so called weekly "numbers"
Now this is getting annoying. On topic: personally I don't care about vgc articles except for the funny fanboys fights ;-)
vgcharts adjusts their figures every time fiscal data comes out that is exactly how accurate it is, it's just an estimation guys, even this data shows ps3 is clearly ahead, to outsell the ps3 the x360 needs to keep on outselling it by 100k for at least another 12 weeks(100k*12 =1.2million), that won't happen as most of them have just upgraded as they know their 360's are on their last legs, and they have the money as they have not had many games to buy this year... I don't see kinect grabbing any of the wii user base as $140 is just too much, maybe only in america, but everywhere else it will be frowned upon as an expensive acessory
Lets really see what will happen...
Here we go, another "Wait until..." post.
and this is an ESTIMATION it still shows a tendency of PS3 dominating a lot more than previous years =O interesting
