As always DS is number one , the price cut did a really big impact on ps3 sales.The Numbers of PS3 sales:374290, not bad.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
Didnt 360 enjoy its 1 year lead...yet still ps2 is a monster..and the psp is nintendos first real comp in the handheld department
Its goin to last a long time!! Games that will really push the PS3 this year!!
Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction
Uncharted Drakes Fortune
SOny is goin to be seein big sales this year...and next..the 360 will just continue to die..lol
the 360 is selling faster than the ps3, count the 'clicks' "read it and weap"
http://www.nexgenwars.com/ those are the real numbers,vgcharts is wrong
Enjoy the 360 lead while it lasts...
And I dont see how anyone can trust nextgenwars
ahahahahaahahahaha... n4gworks3sony actually think every time the counter goes up on nextgenwars.. it means that a unit was sold.. ahahahaa.. yeah thats right, every cash register in the world is linked up to the nextgetwars site and when a 360 is sold, it updates the website.. ahahahah kids are too funny
Some times you could see the numbers DECREASING in nextgenwars... I think what could that be? More a 360 with RROD?
Sorry... I really have to... Couldn't control.
May I do a "NextGenWarsWorks4MS" ; user? No, I think it would be too stupid... Who would think something THAT stupid?
Ill enjoy it while it lasts.......... till the next gen :)
the ps3 is actually doing quite well for an "expensive" conosle. Plus they have competition from all fronts including their ps2
And for a product that has a few games at the moment, I would say its doing quite fine.
Hahahahahhahahahahahahhaahha he actually things nextgenwars are the real numbers!!hahahahahahhahahahaha hhahahahahahahahhahahahahahhaha haha hahahahhaahhah Weres the comparasing? How many more xbox360 were sold this month than ps3? Nexgen is just a stupid site with extimates or counters. They get the credit from the companies(which is bull just to make themselves look good). For example if Nintendo said they sold 20 million wiis this year nexgen would believe that(its how stupid that guy is).
Don't forget its his extimates too. I can also make a site and put Xbox 360 10-11 mill Wii 9-10 mill Ps3 3.5-4.5 mill. But if I like a system better I would offcourse make it look better.
DS- 1 Trillion
Anyways was that a joke man? it has to be a joke? its a joke right?
haha woohoo... with no games, can't imagine the sales when we actually get a good game, sweet.
can you not be fanboy, let everybody enjoy.Plus, MS couldn't take losing sony for a month and made a price cut, haha, now they're doing me-too strategy.stupid.
A Microsoft price cut is less of a "me-too" strategy than it is a necessary price cut for hardware that's nearly two years old. Although I doubt you see sales increases for 360 like you did for PS3 until Halo 3 is released, and a lot of them will come from that really ugly Halo-edition box.
People can disparage Halo 3 all they want to, but that game is going to move systems. It will move more systems for Microsoft than any single title released this year will move systems for Sony.
but, how do you come out like 2.2 0r 2.3,well you get me.
By replying to ones topic. Like I did to yours.
Dont abuse Power of Green and then come out with possibly the dumbest question i have ever read.
I mean come on the 360 is days away fron its own real Price drop with the most wanted games in the industry on the way. Its not logical?.
Price and software are the thing the average consumer cares about not the status of Consoles lol.
The average person looks at the popular games.
80 gigs vs 120 gigs thats the selling point! both consoles can use after market extra's of sorts"(PS3 after market HDD's and 360's PC capabilities to use PC HDD's etc.) But the superficial selling points are not in Sony's favor. Trust me this PS3 clearance BULLSHIT will be an after thought at the end of this month.
Sony has already used up its leverage in 8 months normally used with Companies in a quarter to half a generation. You're welcome to check my post history and see how off i'v been in my predictions. lol
Little billy thompson 12 years old who lives down in texas?
Does The 360 have any exclusives? I mean real ones, thats not coming to pc?
"Price and software are the thing"
"80 gigs vs 120 gigs thats the selling point!"
which is neither price related or software related.
Which is it? Price? Software? Hardware?
"both consoles can use after market extra's of sorts"(PS3 after market HDD's and 360's PC capabilities to use PC HDD's etc"
I must say, you did a worthy sidestep there...almost types yourself into corner once you realized there isn't really such a thing as an after market 360 HDD, just the one MS rapes your wallet with.
"But the superficial selling points are not in Sony's favor"
I have to agree with you on that one...the superficial advantages lie with the 360. The PS3's advantages are much deeper and much more useful.
I dont understand your point. Most computers use Microsoft Windows.
Why would MS not wanna release some of its games to the PC platform?
And Mass Effect,Blue Dragon,Eternal Sonata, and Lost Odyssey are some exclusives only for the 360. Their I named a few for you. Happy now?
The only two games I REALLY wanted on the 360 was Gears of Wars and Mass Effect.
I don't have a Xbox, but I can play Gears of War on a computer, and Mass Effect has some chance to come to PC too... So why would I buy an Xbox now?
I can have the PS3's amazing exclusives, and some of the Xbox "exclusives" too.
Only in North Amercia. And in Japan and Europe PS3 has been outselling 360 even without a price drop.
Why should you buy a 360? Well hey if you dont really like any of their games then dont. You talk about PS3 amazing exclusives. Dont you like rpg's well I guess not. But the 360 is putting alot of hard work in that field. And I think they should be commended.
But hey if you dont like them types of games. Then their nothing anyone can say to convince you other wise. But I think the 360 got some great rpg's ( exclusive rpg's for the 360 ) coming out. And thats my favorite type of games. So I'll stick with my rpg's.
And another great rpg Mass Effect may come to the PC. ( MAYBE ) But I guess you can hope. But I'll be playing it on launch.
im sick as hell of all these MS fanboys talking sh*t about the PS3, no matter how while the PS3 is doing. i guess theyre just pissed that all they can do is trash talk while they wait till theyre system comes back in the mail cause it got the ring of death.
I'm sick as hell of all these Sony fanboys talking sh*t about the 360, no matter how well the 360 is doing. I guess they're just pissed that all they can do is trash talk while they wait till they're system gets some games that are worthy of paying 500 for.
EDIT: Go ahead, disagree and don't say why, be my guest.
im not one that disagreed with you, but i dont see thaat many sony heads ripping on the 360 besides the whole failier rate problem, but no1z even said anything about that in weeks
I see it at least once a day, seriously man, at least.
Just look a few posts up to see a RROD reference. As in the very post we are replying to.
all I can say is...
wait for npd for NA data.
the japanese data is accurate.
the other parts of the world data you can pretty much ignore it, it's totally baseless especially except for the UK and aus numbers maybe...
i think its all downhill 4 microsoft. sure they will have there mass effect but ps3 has 2 many tripple a titles coming and if HOT SHOTS moved sales dramatically. imagine mgs4 and ff13. but anyway. i think its safe 2 say that by 2009, sony will be in the lead and by the summer of 2008 sony will probably be neck and neck with xbox. bcuz think about it. xbox will sell systems with halo and then when more systems break. just like what is already happening, some people will convert 2 ps3. even if its alittle bit of people everytime, it will add up 2 be alot. and i wonder how many of those 11 million 360's that were sold actually work? or how many of them r not just 2 in the same house. bcuz i know a few people that actually have 2 of them so what do u guys think?
I think a few of your assumptions are invalid. Many gamers aren't going to convert from Xbox to PS3. Some will, but many gamers already have both systems and will continue to support both. It isn't a one or the other game for many of us.
Maybe it is a little premature to look beyond Spring 2008 to decide who is going to be in the lead. The way I see it, the Xbox has a lock on 2007. There's no way Sony's installed base is going to pass Microsoft's this year, and in my opinion Xbox has the better holiday lineup.
Many of the best PS3 games are releasing in the Spring. I think that after the holidays the PS3 is really going to pick up and give the 360 a run for its money. Personally, as owner of all three new consoles this generation, I want to see them all succeed.
ps3 and 360 fanboys need to stop arguing and work together to take down the wii cuz its dominating and i hate the wii
that is exatcly what ive been thinking
hehe your right. Wii is the monster everyone can complain isnt "nex-gen" yet its taking away lots of people who would have been buying the ps3/360
along with its "casual never cared for consoles" crowd
there are too many kids in the world to take down the wii!! i hate kids
No doubt the PS3 sold well in June, but I wait fro NPD.
VgChartz compared their June numbers to the NPD numbers .....
They were really freaking close.....
oh right theres the story, ok everyone, remember vg charts is crap, it looks like you have to add 14% to the ps3 numbers and subtract 7% from the 360's... haahahahaa too funny
Nice move by Sony
The Sony had better grasp hold of their trousers because HALO 3, and bioshock coupled with a price drop are going to rape them
That might be true.
But Lair, Heavenly Sword, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, WarHawk, U3T, Haze are gonna gangbang the 360.
But I doubt that all of those titles you listed, combined, are going to move more systems than Halo 3.
i think its probable that those games will sell more ps3's than halo will for the 360 because most people that want to play halo already bought the system.
Looks like the PS3 won July. Hmmm still the 360 didn't do bad.
360 price cut hasn't kicked in yet.
I think August will be a fairer assessment. And whats up with the game list? Why bother someone could do the same for the 360, it proves nothing.
And to those that think the 360 is dead remember its been selling consoles a year longer then the PS3. I should hope the PS3 would sell more. Especially since its a good quality product. That has just received a price cut.
i had a report, that told me to capitalize on ps3.
The 360 actually did horrible. Look at the numbers outside the US. They are brutal.
What difference does it make? A sale a sale is it not?
And besides the 360 still won the U.K. and Australia. ( over the PS3 )
So your clearly in denial.
RE masterg i know
it look like people hate the xbox 360 outside of US
lol compare to the ps3 and other system that just sad
Next gen wars is way out to lunch on their figures and Sony will be a force to wreckon with in the coming months.
from sony and microsoft. i wouldnt be surprised if wii won this gen with sales since its sooo cheap. and now that there making profit off of every system they sell, they could even do a price drop again. wii is just too cheap compared 2 the other systems. so i probably wouldnt even worry about the wii. also bcuz the wii's games r so different from ps3 and xbox games that i know it wont effect developers decisions to port something exclusive 2 the wii that could have been 4 the 360 or ps3. so wii wont really get in the way of ps3 or xbox
i really wonder, how many people will buy ps3 60GB with 100$ price cut, than ps3 80GB bundle with motorstorm without price cut, then ps3 80GB alone with rumbling controller and probably also price cut.
then, i wonder, how many people will buy now premium at 50$ even knowing, that this console is really unreliable. Will price make people buy unreliable console..
then, to those who know about falcon, will they wait for new SKU, and not buy old x360 even with 50$ price cut.
then again, at 300$ price, falcon 20GB premium with HDMI, how many gamers will ignore that system, if it will be less noisy, won`t have RROD and will have improved cooler system?
i definately won`t. =)
i know, that ps3 will be better, well atleast in graphics and won`t have problem with space, but some games i play not for graphics, so to my opinion, after falcon, M$ is going to get their part of console market pie.
but still, i wonder what numbers there will be. :)
the future is so unpredictable... =]
Slow and steady wins the race! ;D
needs a big recount which was mentioned in march,and yet none of vgchartz.com types of websites recounted,look, 3-10percent of broken 360's got replaced, and in the system it counted as a new one!!lol,so the real number of 360's sold is between8-9m, not 10, hell no.
cmon everyone, you remember all the posts about vgcharts being crap.. they even did a side by side comparison with the NPD numbers, and it turns out that vgcharts was way off. It seems that when looking at the numbers sold on vgcharts, you must add 5% of the total onto the ps3 numbers and subtract 8% from the 360's total.. Cmon guys, get your act together, vgcharts in unreliable, you must add onto the ps3 numbers and subtract from the 360s numbers, geez.
and whadaya know, here is the story.. read it and weap
Even the NPD has a ~10% margin of error.
to spike sales for PS3.
That is good bc all consoles need some competition to keep developers on their toes.
I was suprised to see 360 selling in Australia. I thought that Australia was a PS3 dominated area.
i really dont think 11 million or 10million or w/e it is was REALLY sold.
bcuz people really have 2 360's in there house and some people have one but didnt get warranty so are screwed. what i want to know is how many were sold THAT WORK AND ARE IN SEPERATE HOUSES. i really do wonder.
SUBNUM i just read ur comment again. and i didnt realize that replaced 360's counted as new ones. where did u hear that from bcuz if thats true then ps3 is only about 3 million behind. omg thats crazy
it's a last gen console, compare it to ps2, plus let's how well will wii do, when ps2 with waggle, will come out, please sony don't call it a pii.
edit:bubbles please, cdzie1 you are stupid xbot, come on right there's no games retard, 360 was at same rate in july 06, and it had some games, and remember there is gears of war, let's at holiday season rate, how long it'll take ps3 to catch up with 360
edit:why the hell do i want to post this.
Sony PS3 outsold Xbox 360 by a little less than 50,000 units in July. At this rate, it would take PS3 over eight years to catch up to Microsoft's Xbox 360.
You can disagree all you want, but that is the math.
clearly someone did not learn exponential growth...
Theres something wrong with your math, you cant tell future sales. There for your calculations will always be wrong.
EDIT: whatever makes your day happy.
Business isn't math, it's Economics.
The math is the math, I didn't make it up! Sony has to prove they can beat Xbox for more than one month (the month they dropped the price!).
So let me ask you a question: Microsoft dropped the price of the HD DVD drive and sales went up 1333% on Amazon. Is anyone claiming victory for HD DVD? No, they have to prove it for a few months. Same with PS3, prove it for a few months and then I’ll start believing.
You're forgetting one thing.
This is the absolute worst time of the year to sell a system.
There has not be a new exclusive since the Euro launch.
Yet the PS3 sold 135k more world wide. (not 50k)
The exclusive games are so close I can taste them.
That's where the real sales are.
Hmm, Math ... lets see (all according to the source for this news article)
PS3 July total: 374290
360 July total: 239571
Math according to cdzie1: "Sony PS3 outsold Xbox 360 by a little less than 50,000 units in July"
374290 - 239571 = 50000
Hmmm, i don't think this equation solves that way ..
Lets try again:
374290 - 239571 = 134719
Ahh, strange as it is that seems to compile much better. Sorry cdzie1, you should really attend simple math classes, soon.
while 360 sold 11 million world wide in 1 year and 8 months(not even mentioning the doubles that people have in there homes and the ones that dont work) but anyway. if ps3 already sold more then half of what 360 sold in 8 months. and the big titles r not out and the price is still high. do u REALLY THINK THAT THE RATE WILL STAY THE SAME? u can argue all u want to. but its the truth. 360 is not selling anywhere near as good as people think when u actually do the math.
CDZIE1. ok 360 still cost around the same as ps3 bcuz only a fool would buy it without the warranty. and if u said u will believe once u see it 4 a few months. 360 will only have september and october and after that its a wrap. xbox is doin pretty good in U.S and thats it. people act like U.S is the only country that exists. ps3 is selling well world wide. and sure halo will sell well in U.S but in JAPAN-4get it.lol. AND PS3 HAS SO MANY DIVERSE GAMES 2 APPLY TO MANY COUNTRYS. just wait and u will see that ps3 after 2008 will dominate the rest of the next gen race. call me crazy but U WILL SEE.
@power of green. funny how u know that xbox has the most wanted games bcuz the last time i checked on poll list,it said ps3 had the most wanted list. and by the way, sure SOME 360 games look better but clearly people hate 2 admit that ps3 has only been 8 months and needs time 2 develop for. lets see what happens when people start seeing what games r possible when it becomes easier 2 develop 4. if the 360 games look better next year then w/e. i'll admit it. but until then. im no believer. and once blu ray gets promoted more. people that like movies will get a cheap blu ray player and that will also help ps3 sales.
Almost like saying PS3 will crush the 360 because of the US launch and the European launch numbers.
A temporary clearance cut will not sustain numbers beating Line-ups and real price cuts when the PS3 price-cut won't even be in effect when we start seeing the effects of the 360 price-cut.
With some of the most wanted games in history!; on top of multi platfrom games for the 360 being known as better versions reaching the street its a no brainer(average consumers look at games like Madden and even the most casual consumers/gamers will become fanboys when it comes to games like that.
These people(console owners that don't play games but do buy console for games that have cultural counterparts) will look at games and choooooooose the best option regardless of platform Allegiance. Its not fanboyism its logic these comapnies depend on.
Good Night and Good Luck.
your fanboyness is showing. Stop being a moron. Keep kidding yourself with your (temporary clearance) bullcrap. Sony knows it needs a price drop to compete with XBOX 360. The price will only come lower. So STFU you stupid sore ass fanboy.
You think Sony is just gonna sit back and watch XBOX 360 dominate all the sales? So they can go out of business? It's what you wish, but it's not gonna happen.
This asshole keeps on crying in this post, he thinks PS3 is gonna go back up to $600 and Microsft is going down to $300 and that Sony is that stupid and just watch XBOX 360 take over the sales. He thinks just because PS3 was off to a bad start that they are gonna keep making the same mistakes. Like the months when they were selling 80k didn't teach them anything.
