seriously.. the ps3 outsells the wii in one country and suddenly there is a whole story about it?
true the ps3 sales increased worldwide and when did i say anything about wii and xbox?

Johnanderson3050d ago

it's not a "whole story". But it's pretty significant to see that in 1 year the PS3 sold 60% more compared to the previous one, when all the other consoles decreased in sales. but don't worry, your wii and xbox are still cool.. geesh

Bloodraid3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

Mrjenkins has a great point, yet he gets 7x as many disagrees as agrees... Such bullshit.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it the Sony fanboys that would always say "Sales don't mean anything, it's about the games" back when the console's sales were sub-par?

As for Johnanderson, when did Mrjenkins say anything at all about owning a wii or 360? Never. Just because someone doesn't go batshit crazy about pro-PS3 'news' doesn't mean they're an Xbox or Wii fanboy.

People on this site are flipping retarded, and make me no longer want to call myself a gamer...

"The PS3 is unstoppable now"

Pffft, Just Wait for a price-cut until claim that, The PS3 @ $200 will be an Unstoppable Beast Everywhere...

megaglitcher3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

The Wii is still ahead by 2M in France. If PS3 is unstoppable by this...then Nintendo must be the king of the world.

Talk about misleading and bad translated titles

rockleex3050d ago

Which means from now on.

georgeenoob3050d ago

PS3 overtook Wii in France. 360 overtook Wii in North America.

PSfan093050d ago

if there wasnt a new xbox, im 110% sure it wouldnt happen. selling 150k+ in a week is a sign that people wanted reliable hardware

lelo2play3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

Everybody says X360 does not sell in Europe...i thought the X360 would have worser sales. As for Nintendo... they are unstoppable.

Nintendo DS: 8,8 millions
Nintendo Wii: 4,3 millions
Sony PSP: 2,7 millions
Sony PS3: 2,3 millions
Microsoft XBox 360: 1,8 million

Chaostar3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

hate to be a grammar nazi but "worser" is pretty bad man.

OT: What gave you the impression that the Xbox was way behind in Europe? It is kept afloat here in the UK but I can see that changing after GT5 hits, the chav gamers' numbers are not to be underestimated and they will die for that game. Kinect might counter that though, who knows, could happen.

Nobody likes a smart ass.

halojunkie3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

sonce the ps3 overtook france, you guys HAVE TO COME HERE SAYING well... WELL.... dont spin it, ps3 is selling more world wide, deal with it, and stop being so damn jealous.

Tomdc3050d ago

to be fair France ain't hard to conquer judging by their poor efforts in WW2 :P

candystop3050d ago

Screw PS3!!!! It's still going to loose this generation.

HolyOrangeCows3050d ago

How do you say "Butthurt" in French?

Tony-A3050d ago

Translation - Sacre Bleu!

jk jk

yippiechicken3050d ago

I think the translation is "HolyOrangeCows"!

ZING! :)

Dacapn3050d ago

I'd say any console outselling the Wii in any country is a story.

Spenok3049d ago

I have to agree that's a feat.

Good news, i just hope they bring the white PS3 with bigger hard drives to EU and US

PoSTedUP3050d ago

im saying this because i believe with PSmove and the cokacola deal, sonys playstation3 will spike in sales a significant amount, marketing is key. if people love the wii, they will love the nextgen graphics plus playstation Move even better.

yes my opinion if flawed but sony would not be making this Move if they didnt have research, years of experimenting and professionals to back this up. they know what they are doing.

coke and video games go good with each other!!

"Between January 1 and June 30, 2010, Sony sold 292,000 PS3 and Nintendo Wii 325,000"

"Nintendo Wii: 4.3 million
Sony PS3: 2.3 million"


Johnanderson3050d ago

the numbers at the end are the sales since launch.

SupaGamer3050d ago

If they say it is true it must be?

sinclaircrown3050d ago

If a random N4G user says its not true then we should believe them, right??

You guys argue over these companies sales. Why does this interest you?? All three consoles have a huge install base already, its not like they're gonna stop making games for any of them.

DontShoot-Me-Bro3050d ago

I guess rench people know good hardware when they see it.

Those french people are clever unlike some other nations...

Nike3050d ago

People like Guerrilla Games, Naughty Dog, Team ICO and Polyphony Digital are present in those "other nations". Are you gonna fault people's nationality simply because the Wii sells more than the PS3 in other countries?
