In Germany, Microsoft still struggles with shortages of supply, as the new 250GB Xbox 360 Slim is selling better than expected.
Bu bu but xbox360 only sells in America Europe belongs to Sony lol.
The 360s has been selling extremely well in Europe and NA since the release of the 360s. It's no wonder. The price is right, it's tremendous fun,looks great and is ultra reliable. Those Germans seem to be returning to the xbox brand with good reason.
Of course, Commodore doesn't offer up anything to support his claims. Makes it easy to create the type of BS he's peddling. He Commodore, next time, how about you prove it. And not with fake, VGChartz numbers. You want to know what we do know is true? VGChartz overtracked the 360 by more than 30% for the first six months of the year, and their numbers for the PS3 are off by more than two million versus what Microsoft and Sony released for numbers. We can probably assume that the 360 got a bit of a boost when they cut the price on the old 360's, but there's no evidence in Europe that the 360S is doing extremely well. We know it's in limited supply because Microsoft told us it's going to be in limited supply for awhile. For all we know the 360s could be doing terribly in Europe. When Microsoft and Sony last gave us numbers the 360 wasn't doing so hot. Look it up. I did. What was it, a year of crappy hardware sales? It's easy to make claims like "the 360 is selling extremely well in Europe" when you don't bother to back it up. Hell, watch me do it! "The 360 has quadrupled PS3 sales in the last week in Japan! Yeah!" So how easy that was! Problem is, it's called lying if you can't back it up with a reliable source. I've seen you argue VGChartz fake data before - so I'm assuming that's all you've got. Maybe some meaningless Amazon.UK chart from months ago. :) See, the problem is you can't handle the truth!
Things are really heating up in Germany. First PS Move is sold out, now Xbox 360 S. Some just can't handle the Xbox 360 do well in other countries than the U.S.
I don't know coljessup. VGChartz is actually referenced by professional media outlets. How can I trust your statements? You're just a mean, code-red ordering general from a crappy tom cruise flick from 1993.
"Of course, Commodore doesn't offer up anything to support his claims" First you call out Commodore for this above! And then turn around and not post any links to back your claims below? "When Microsoft and Sony last gave us numbers the 360 wasn't doing so hot. Look it up. I did"
the few 360 owners in germany are searching for one in the hope of having a semi reliable machine sad but true.
i live in berlin and here you can find it everywhere...
at the diagrees. i mean a lot of people of berlin are on this site. i mean i dont know if that comment is legit or not but come on.
I'd believe it. You could find them everywhere in the US when they claimed shortages for the first few months of 2008.
but the U.S. is a little bigger than your local Walmart, even if it is a Super Walmart.
Cute, but I don't even shop at Walmart. I saw them at max shelf capacity at Fry's, Blockbuster, Best Buy, Target, and Game Dude (small local store) during the months of the supposed shortage. Amazon.com is always a really good indicator too. When the Wii and PS3 had shortages, they limited the number of units each person could buy, and even when they were out of stock they still hovered around in the top 25 selling items. During the 360 shortage, no limits were put on any of the 3 SKUs, and they were all dragging ass around the bottom of the top 100.
it sold 10 units instead of the usual 5. Hey but still what about the games? yall dont got any more exclusives left. Spin that.
I don't know kartik. I have several friends (I know, hard to believe, a douchebag like me) and most of them don't come to this site and they make fun of me for doing so. They don't understand this constant measuring of console's dicks, you see. They're not like, "Oh noes!!! PS3 has more exclusives than 360!!!" A very small group of pathetic people really give a shit about the things that a majority of people don't care about. This is evidenced by Call of Duty games selling extremely well while the majority of people on this site despise the game. So, my spin is this. Almost nobody cares. Most of the people playing Cod on their 360s don't give a shit about Killzone or the Last Guardian. And judging from how well Cod sells on PS3, I'm going assume that most PS3 owners don't give a shit about Fable 3 or Halo Reach on the 360. And because of the large number of excellent multiplatform titles heading to both the 360 and the PS3 month after month, year after year, I'm going to further assume that nobody is suffering from any gaming droughts, despite what people say on the internet. So, spin that.
Well said. I don't know why this sites readers are such a negative hating bunch of people! I love Ninja Gaiden, CoD, Halo and Gears of War. Heck, I even loved Starcraft, but people still had to hate on that too. Makes you wonder what people play?
Well said kaveti. Good to see there is still some sense left on N4G.
well said. Theses kinds of comments are rare around here
spin what? that your a troll making stupid comments with zero truth, your doing fine all by yourself kid.
Man can you be any more of an FANBOY. Damn bro why be so hateful for lol. GROW UP. Just be glad, all consoles are doing great and that's a very good thing.
look at the first comment though hacking guy
The funny reality is for console games is this: Most games bought on ALL systems (PS3, XBOX360 and even the PC) are MULTIPLATFORM GAMES FROM 3RD PARTY GAME HOUSES. They make up the vast majority of games bought. How many EXCLUSIVE games are released during the fiscal calender year? Now compare that to MULTI-PLATFORM games released during the same time. The number is almost 10-1. If you are truely the type of person that only plays exclusive games for your console of choice, then you will only enjoy 4-5 exclusive DECENT games in that calender year...if you're lucky. There are over 20-70 multiplatform games released during the year minimum. This is why if your a HARDCORE gamer, you own all relevent game systems and not a N4G.COM fanboy
I thought only pro PS3 articles got approved.This seems to be some random little German article about 360 selling out.Why would the PS3 fanboys that apparently control this site approve this? Anyway,on to point.The 360 selling out tells you nothing.The PS3 had dominated Germany,and to assume the selling out of 360 means it's doing really well is jumping the gun.it's like a 400% increase in sales in Japan sounds amazing but the 360 would still be off the pace.Without actual numbers it means nothing.It could still be outsold 3:1,even if it sells out.The article is just quoting MS from a PR interview anyway.
"Why would the PS3 fanboys that apparently control this site approve this?" Easy. They would approve it so they can troll it. "Without actual numbers it means nothing." I agree with that. The article is bogus. But it's funny that you state something like that and then go on speculate about numbers in your next sentence.
No other Xbox 360 exclusive deserves to be called a system seller for a person who has some intelligence.
While I agree Forza 3 is a solid Simulator with unmatched true to life handling/weight/physics/sense of speed/customization etc I disagree with the system selling jive. I play Forza 3 every day and play it more than any game in my collection because I love the genre and no other game gives me the fun or challenge in the racing genre. Your reasoning/comment has no intelligence.
That's a silly comment. Just because people doesn't have the same taste in games as you doesn't mean they they are less intelligent.
I usually stay away from any fanboy PS3vs.360 articles but I just couldnt resist this time lol. Anyone notice who posted this board up? "OMEGA4!!" (Tracked him) the biggest troll on this site as far as i know and ive only been on this site for like a 2-3 weeks o.O' Seems in an attempt to satisfy his hate for all things Ps3 related and love of 360- He browses the net for things like these... Correct me if im wrong but I think thats called fanboyism or insecurity, your pick? Sorry guys, No fanboyism intended, just had to do it seeing as omega4 in my opinion is the most annoying troll on this site, he sais "THEE MOST RETARDED" comments and then never returns after all the replies he gets back knowing his "hate" if even that is a complee fail & just plain hatred for the PS3 for his own, yet still very strange reason o.O' My point is stop giving in to trolls such as these or any fanboys for that matter, They will eventually tire and give up and play some games for a change.. (+we save N4G) I still find it hilarious as I have many consoles and just get annoyed seeing as its "my preference" therefore my PS3 & Wii gets the most love, that doesnt mean at all all the other consoles suck at all or that im a fanboy, just my preference. Though i think anyone who sais anything in these articles are just fanboys so... I mightve made a huge mistake, either way-i think people just keep him around for laughs as he can be amusing, as are all haters Edit: In other words.. Dont be a hater ^-^ Btw: tell that Froza3 "unmatched" true to life stuff to my copy of GT5 when it realeases soon :D
You're tracking the biggest troll on this site, what's wrong with you? Follow your own advice -> "Dont be a hater ^-^"
Don't like positive 360 news huh...You say you've been here a couple of weeks but seem to know all about N4G...Hmmmm. Don't like the story, don't click on it...pretty simple. You don't like the 360 or it selling like crazy, then it must of been a rough 5 years for ya. Your entire post is a fanboy rant. Omega4 didn't write the article, are you 10 years old or just suffer from some sort of learning disability...lol. Positive 360 news is trolling now...LMFAO
Seems to me you guys are mad? :P Im obviously not and because of this im not going to bother so feel free to think what u like ^-^
Them Slims are almost impossible to find. They should be nicely stock by the upcoming holiday season. Looking good for Microsoft.
you have nothing to support your claims either
This is a new SKU, allot other 360 use wans replace theur crappy older model. 306 fanboy really thing that 360 selling well to new custumers, but actualy are those the same old 360 user who want a new typ of 360.
So Real Killer. When sales shot up when the PS3 slim came out, was it PS3 OWNERS just wanting to get another slimmer PS3 as the majority buyers? Or does your hypocrisy continue to cloud your retarded brain?
Only three people out of 90 on my friends list have upgraded to slim so that theory holds little validity both my consoles are overweight my fat ps3 is huge eating disorder germans like the quality 360 games i guess nurburg ring on forza 3 helps the track looks amazing. Lol so when ps3 had a shortage it was cool 360 does it global conspiracy arrives i love you guys u cheer up my day.
WHOOHOOO!!!! Congrats MS for selling the 4 or 5 consoles you sent to Germany! LOL, just kidding guys! Please dont kill me.......
