Cyrax_872991d ago

glad somebody knew what I was on about =)

DelbertGrady2992d ago

I take it the PS3 didn't do to well?

SuperbVillain2991d ago

I didn't really check,let me know.I'm sure it did fine though.I don't own shares of sony or anything so sales don't really concern me.

Nihilism2992d ago

That's because you are a fanboy. Simples. If you don't own stocks, and you come to an article like this for anything other than are a bottom feeder. Here have some of my excrement.

ChronoJoe2992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )

Why the fuck do you guys post then, the topic clearly says 'usa retail sales'. Did you think it'd be about a new game announcement? or something?

SuperbVillain2991d ago

why you mad joe? dont be mad.

ChronoJoe2992d ago

Anywho, on topic

Aug Sales 360 vs PS3 - 360 on the left. (US only)

672,000 557,000

Which seems to fits with the typical trends. PS3 may be a little higher than expected, in America for August, pretty good performance on both parts though and with Europe and Japan they'll be performing close to equally.

N4PS3Fanboys2992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )

Why are you listing Madden NFL 11's sales as though they are the 360 and PS3 hardware sales? US 360 vs PS3 sales for the month according to the article are:

360: 384,885
PS3: 219,116

According to the same website, worldwide sales for August are:

360: 827,586
PS3: 576,024

ChronoJoe2992d ago

Oh, I'm sorry. I missread.

big_silky2992d ago

I would like a ps3 fanboy to seriously explain to me how it will overtake the 360 anytime soon.

Claous2992d ago

The PS3 will overtake the 360 when microsoft abandons the 360 for the next console like they did the xbox and sony will continue selling and producing more games for the ps3 while the ps4 is coming out.

Does that answer how for you big?

Nihilism2992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )


When M.S brings out a new console because they can afford to, and they are releasing games that by far surpass anything capable on the PS3 with their next gen console...people will still keep buying outdated games on their PS3 because of some sick devotion...while sony tries to re-coup some of the billions they lost on the PS3 failure by milking morons for the next 5 years while there is an absent ps4

Sony as a company is still billions in debt lol

Play games not hardware.

Independent_Charles2992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )

micro had to dicontinue the xbox xause nvidia pulled out of makeing the gfx cards for it. thats why halo 3 was is in development for xbox but then 20% through development that switched to 360 hence 640p and no AA res cause they didnt have the engine.

Cyrax_872992d ago

Wow, spoken like a true fanboy. Gamers can't like a console they own without having some sick devotion, eh?

Nihilism2992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )

There is a difference between liking something and being a fanboy like clous is.

P.S I do not own a 360 so stfu.


You ate right, I was not just talking about him, I was talking about the man like minded...simple minded pathetic marketing tools that populate this site and that argue about hardware every day...yet when the next generation is that will arguably come to M.S first becauase of the reasons I mentioned above...all of a sudden the hypocritical beast that lives inside you all rears it's head once again.

Fanboys are morons and there is more than 1 on this "people" = plural...mutliple PS3 fantards of a similar hypocritical immature nature.

Cyrax_872992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )

Well next time you're talking about Claous don't use the word "people" like when you say "PEOPLE will still keep buying outdated games on their PS3 because of some sick devotion..." ect.

Obviously you weren't just talking about Claous. And I couldn't care less which console you own, your comment still come off fanboyish, retard.


"Fanboys are morons and there is more than 1 on this "people" = plural...mutliple PS3 fantards of a similar hypocritical immature nature."

LOL, so next time mention PS3 fanboys. Rather then just "people with a PS3".

Nihilism2992d ago

"next time mention PS3 fanboys. Rather then just "anyone who owns a PS3". "

They are the same thing. It's like a cult, you can't be a member yet claim not to be brainwashed. Have some more excrement fanboy. There's plenty to be had in this thread.

Cyrax_872992d ago (Edited 2992d ago )

NO, they are not the same thing. There is a HUGE difference between being a fan and being a fanboy. Obviously you're the brainwashed one is you think otherwise. There are multi console owners out there who actually like their consoles equally, I bet that blew your mind didn't it?
