The total NPD hardware sales for Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, PSP, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 during the first-half of 2010 have been calculated.
Great numbers for xbox360 and NDS.
i see what you did there.
Why not just say for all consoles and handhelds? Except the PSP of course.
Amazing, 360 has been out for a year longer than PS3 yet it is still outselling it You'd think 360 sales would be slowing down but they are just going non-stop
Its a good thing the u.s. is the only part of the world that matters.....
http://www.nintendoeverythi... Looks like the Ps3 is leading in WW numbers.
i think you are off by just a bit. When I see the comments about this outselling that world wide there seems to be a lack of some fundamental thought. No one ever states the basis for the numbers that are being proclaimed. In my understanding the wii is outselling the 360 and ps3 from the stand point of total accumulated systems sold. Those are the real world wide numbers. Not in a specific time frame but overall. Which would also make the 360 outselling the ps3 in world wide numbers over all. These sales goggles everyone wears to make their system look good at a certain point in time need to be taken off. It makes them look stupid.
The 360 clearly has no plans of slowing down. The hardware is still cheaper than the PS3, and it has plenty of very highly rated games and a new halo coming out this year. Game over.
So you guys wanna play sales huh. So What happens when you combine Japan and North American sales together?

Good NUMBERS for Wii and DS. Lucky I don't play numbers. EDIT: I don't play numbers, doesn't mean I can't read and comment on their unimportance to my game playing? I click MOST links on the front page.
@mrv321- Yet u bothered to read/comment in a numbers article right? @joebik10- I don't speak for everyone, but for me personally, I don't care who gets "ahead", but I DO care if the PS3 does well, since thats the console I own. The better the sales for the PS3, the more content Sony can produce for PS3 owners. Edit: Mrv, u misunderstood my reply. I'm saying that if u CLAIM to not play numbers, why did you click on a numbers article? "I don't play numbers, doesn't mean I can't read and comment on their unimportance to my game playing?" Ummm..I didn't say you couldn't comment on it, I was just wondering why you would since you claim not to care. Chillax dude, forget I said anything. Beautiful stealth edit btw :)
Play games, not 12 year old fanboy wars.
THANKKK YOUUUUU,,,sales arent for gamers to worry about,its playing the dam games that we are supposed to do
Fanboys do. PS3 fans say quality doesn't equal sales because the 360 is ahead, then turn around and get all into how the PS3 is going to pass the 360. Their to worried about how long its going to take PS3 to pass up the 360, rather than playing their PS3. Actually I have a questions, once and if the PS3 passes up the 360 what exactly are you going to get out of it? You don't see any of the money, and quite frankly I'll I see happening is bragging rights (I guess) over N4G where most of its users are PS3 anyway.
@joe You say play games not wars yet every article for 360 is swamped with idiot ps3 fans spouting $#hit and ruining the comments section. Why do you think this story is any different? YOu'd think this site has real gamers coming in here..
stop [email protected] over these numbers LoL
Why would I say good numbers for all consoles? Im sorry if saying good numbers for xbox360 and NDS makes a few guys feel left out so they have to disagree with me. edit: I wasnt tryna stir nothing. I get disagrees because I dont say PS3 is the best console EVERRR! xbox is crap! This is N4G for ya.
I don't feel left out, it just seems you were trying to stir something, thats why you got disagrees
and If i was a fanboy of any kind id be a nintendo fanboy. Not much sony or ms got that wud i wud consider going fanboy over. faceless companies lol. not like ms sony or ninty go caress ur head as u sleep lol.
although xbox is selling very well i think ps3 leads on WW sales but marginally maybe 150k-200k a month, id like to see what the sales of this month would bring in. lol i saw 9 people in a row walk out with new 360 this morning. 9 PEOPLE IN A ROW!! LOL
YYYYEEEEESSSS!!!! Who was the best console of all time, forever, times a million for the first half of the year?
We need Worldwide sales.
Who needs World Wide sales when North America (not whole America) is better than World Wide sales /s.
These aren't North American numbers, simply America since NPD doesn't cover Canada.
''Here is a month-by-month breakdown of the NPD hardware sales for North America for the first-half of 2010:''
Probably a mistake by the author, even when you clicked the linked posts some say America while others North America. NPD Group doesn't cover North America for consoles sales, only US retailers are tracked excluding places like Walmart.
Problem is most countries in Europe and the rest of the world don't have official numbers.
Yes Sony fanboys need WW sales to reassure them. @below: Oh! How could I forget the "shortages" that have lasted SIX MONTHS...LOL. Oh and btw, the "shortages" are over and the 360 still stomping the PS3. Looks like next month Sony will have to go back to having "shortages" :)
Just like xbox fanboys need to focus on america to comfort them and lol even with shortages ps3 was only like 400,000 behind
Only 400,000 because 400,000 is nothing...lol @avatarshoe - Cold 2000 is trolling be you're not; right?
economists, financial advisors, presidents, ambassadors, stock brokers, businessmen and over all ANYONE that lives AROUND THE WORLD need world wide sales numbers. your the ignorant fool thinking people make a big deal over world wide numbers because it "reassures" us, no. the fact you limit yourself to ONE COUNTRY, shows you are the one who needs reassurance.
I don't care about what fanboys said in the past, I'm just wondering where the proof is Sony is lying about these shortages, especially when retailers already confirmed its true, I don't get why Amazon would be lying about shortages.
Sony fanboys claim they dont care about sales. Yet they want WW numbers. hahah.
@ sak500 They always cared about sales. We all know that and so do they.
LOL @ cold got owned by Carlton.
well we lost this battle but my fellow sony fanboys the war is not over! jk its pretty much over ps3 has games every year lots of them 360 has sales every year lots of them but as gamers gusse whats the one i care about?
AMERICA =/= WORLD FOR THE BILLIONTH TIME.
But we're in a thread about sales in America. The insecurity you guys show in every NPD article is amazing. You say the same things again and again... Do you see 360 fans yapping about sales in the USA in Japan sales threads ?? No, I guess thats a PS3 fanboy exclusive.
When it is Japan numbers the same people will not bother to recognize that Japan does not equal the world. Besides PS3 is selling like crap WW as well. I mean its usually half of what Wii sales.
You care about both, it's ok to admit it.
jesus th eps3 is only 400k behind the 360 in america so far
good numbers for all,but psp needs to do something bout dem sales,how is it going to compete with the ds and it didnt even pass 1 mill,the ds is alredy at 3 million
this is the drug (npd sales) n4g has every month that makes it go balistic. in the words of captain kirk"shields up, ready weopons"
Looks like sony is dead last with PS3 and PSP :)
in america,the rest of the world thats not the case
Iam sure they are last with PSP worldwide :D
@octacon68..how is psp last worldwide.its ahead of ps3 and xbox in sales.psp wipes its ass with the xbox in japan,and the same for almost everywhere else
seems you forgot that the PSP has sold around 60 million try again....
another person living in their own little xBox LIVE world LoL
but its still a hell of a great console with great games. so the serious question is...should I care? *hint* starts with an N and ends with an O
My stocks are pleased
WOW, Nintendo is simply dominating this gen. Plus, with great games coming out this year and next year, it will just keep selling. But great numbers overall for all consoles.
I thought xbox would be ahead of ps3 by a lot more than that for the year. And this is with Sony's shortages.
Yeah shortages...LOL. BTW the 360 is having shortages too so I guess they would have outsold Sony 2:1 then, right ?
Anyone saying the shortages are fake have any type of proof? Disagrees and no reply? expected
Sony fans didnt need proof when it was the Wii having shortages. It was all faked to increase demand. Where is your proof that the shortages are real? A post from some company exec isnt proof btw.
Lol, PS3 shortages. Right. Only sold 1.5 mil in 6 freaking months. Pathetic, yet they cant make enough to satisfy demand? Sure sounds like damage control to me.
any proof? no ohhh sad fanboy :)
Remember the 1 Million bans ;) http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id... Ans broken 360's http://www.engadget.com/200... Damn, look at those software nummbers. Not as big as the hardware nummbers. Some one has butt hurt with his disagree, more will follow with more butt hurt. WOW, i give some proof and yet those butt hurt fanboys ignore this proof. ----------------------------- ------------------------------ - -------------------- Elven6 I look at software numbers not the hardware than you will have real estimate qua hardware numbers, with Millions more 360 in USA and so big difference qua software.
Not sure what this has to do with anything but reading helps, from the first sentence, "Anywhere between an estimated 600,000 and 1 million players" Notice the "estimated" part? Edit: Sorry, I still don't understand what linking to two speculatory articles has anything to do with software sales.
In my opinion we N4G should ban NPD and any sales news. They contribute nothing except for flame bait
i don't really see how, they just report official numbers, they don't make them up. Its the fanboys that create the flamebait
These are the only real numbers this site gets. With data from retailers. I bet this guy like amazon sales rank and vg chartz, instead of the much more accurate NPD numbers. Yes, America is not the world, but it is the largest videogame market, and one of the only ones to report accurate numbers. I live in america nad have a ps3 and 360, so they are interesting to me. Why dont you go cry in one of the many bs fake speculation articles.
NPD are the least of the fan war worries, there are plenty of sites looking for hits who are the bigger problem.
I wonder what Nintendo get from a DS or Wii sell. The production Costs shoud not be so high. With this sale numbers they may be the richest Gamne Company...
And the 360 Slim is not counted at all, with huge the shortages When shortages are over, Arcade Slim and Kinect hit market, PS3 will be a distant memory Add the fact that has nothing like Fable 3, Mass Effect 3, Project Kingdoms, Gears 3, Halo Reach etc and it is game over for PS and Sony
actually the slims sale are counted,wen gt5 comes out along with nex years ps3 exclusives,360 will bow down to ps3 once and for all,especially since ps3 is restoked everywhere n 360 is gettin shortages now
