Seems according to this danish site, the PS3 is out selling the Wii by 3.5:1 and the 360 by 6:1 in Denmark. This is all thanks to the new Starter pack model.
I'm proud to be Danish.
The article stats the facts as written on this post.
Nothing was lost in translation.
It's the two controler + two games which have made the PS3 sales explode. Price = 4995Kr = $925.
Most people I talk to here in Denmark would never consider a 360. They hardly know it exists.
People ask me about the graphics on the 360 (I have both). I tell them it is just as good as on the PS3. But the hardware is nowhere near the PS3 (I'm on my 3rd 360).
As for Wii they look at it as a Party/Kids toy. So this is not really that surprising.
Edit: Hey if you are going to disagree with me at least tell me why. I doubt any of the disagrees have been danish.
And as we all know-
DENMARK is where the console market is decided
Archaic, I'm certainly no fan of the PS3 myself, but that's no reason to be a prat about factual information like this. It's called maturity, mate. Look it up.
Again , bad editing ALLOWED by the admins of this forum who are biased for sony. Stories are supposed to link to the original source not a ps3 forum.
Bad Edit: Should I have linked to the non-english page instead? I know that when the news source is a non-english site, we are allowed to use translated link and the forum link is the best translated version I could find.
bubbles for u
xbots better get rdy for the snowball effect : Warhawk, HS, Lair...
do you need any more proof that this forum is biased for sony? just look at how they arrange the sections, even though xbox 360's installed base is over twice that of the ps3 and yet the ps3 section is placed first next to 'Home' above the headlines. maybe its wishfull thinking.
The Sega Genesis is outselling ALL next gen consoles in Conrad, Montana!!!!
Ah man, that's funny....
You were joking right?
You cleverly found out how to find out what console a website is biased for simply by looking which console's icon is placed closer to the home button.
Oh, ign seems to be biased for pc games. Just thought you'd like to know.
MK-red you've become a useless prat who only cares about winning 500 bucks, not only have you posted info from a forum (which isn't allowed) you got your source from a non english site, and its freaking demark, a tiny country which prob sells a few thousand units a month.
"its freaking demark, a tiny country which prob sells a few thousand units a month."
I hate arrogant americans. grr.
Deep prove me wrong, prove to me that Denmark sells tens of thousands of units each week, cause frankly thats the only way it would matter... oh ya the only country who does that in Europe is the UK.
You are extremely arrogant. People like you are the reason almost every other country mocks us. Trust me, I know. I am in the Navy and have been to Europe and they do not have "USA is the best" ideal that you might think they have. Go there sometime and you will see why.
Besides, how hard is it to NOT click on a story that you don't care about? Honestly, what compels people like you to read stories like this that you SAY you don't want to see but obviously pay attention to?
And if you don't like the news that MK Red submits, then submit your own and read that.
Xbox 360 with 2 SKUs above the slipping PS3 that is now at a lowly #19
Not only that, the Xbox 360 has AAA games Topping the Bestsellers charts!!! FTW
Who said that this information was factual, some guy that says he's from demark. Or the other second hand original story translated after being posted as hear say. If you are that easy to think something is factual, then I have some swamp land in the trunk of my car that I would like to sell you.
Funny though, my older brother is in the USAF and is stationed in demark, he has a 360 and states that that's what most of his friends play and rave about. Totally opposite that what masterg says, hmmm, somebodys either lying or a huge sony fanboy. I think I'll take the word of my brother who plays the 360 just for fun and is not close to being a fanboy.
And just like I did, you can draw your own conclusions. I'm not saying that the starter pack isn't selling well in demark, I'm sure it is, but 3-1 and 6-1 can be something as simple as 36 ps3s being sold to 6 xbox 360s or 6 ps3 to 2 wiis. Until someone post some factual numbers like thousands to hundreds, etc. The post is just another garbage story with a bunch of holes in it.
Now this is confirmed
the defective x360 is dead in EU and JAPAN
Population of Denmark ~5 million.
Population of Los Angeles ~4 million
Yeah...sure sounds like the console war is now at a close.
This is retarded. What purpose does this POSSIBLY serve? Bragging rights. Why else post this as 360 related news?
The bias here is getting ridiculous. and I own all 3 systems. Bleah.
jmoneezie - You are correct - I should not have used the word "factual" in my reply to Archaic. Hopefully the meaning of my post remains, however. Archaic did nothing to refute the supposed data, but instead went straight for a sophomoric and sarcastic comment about Denmark being where the console wars will be decided, thus showing a decided lack of maturity. Yes, I know that it's rampant across the Internet, and certainly this site, but it still surprises me that people willingly expose themselves in idiotic manners and think that it's acceptable.
I certainly understand where you're coming from, thanks for clearing that up. Bubbles
Actually this article concerns not only Denmark, but the entire of Scandinavia. Quotes in the article is made by Nordic Film Interactive, which is the only distributer of Sony PS3 in all of Scandinavia - that means Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland - in total 24 million people.
The mention of Merlin (major danish retail outlet) is only given to illustrate how the new PS3 starter package is outselling the WII and xbox360.
Basically the number of people living i Scandinavia is rather small compared to the USA, - whats interesting is weather the PS3 salesratio is also relevant for the rest of Europe - then we are talking 470 million potential consumers(European Union) - and not only 24 millon.
warhawk coming out next week
and lair, Heavenly Sword in few weeks
is looking good
im approving this anyway ;)
wow that is good to hear
but the population of denmark...makes Canada seem important
<<< see the pic? im Canadian..so relax
Just like this site that no one can understand. ;)
Has anyone notice that there have been a lot of bullshit articles lately?
you took the Words right out of My Mouth
ya MoonDust i have Noticed that how come there is so much BullSh*t Artilces on this Site now this Article especially i mean WtF
no, i havent noticed at all :)
Bubble for you
The point might be though that Denmark reflects sales in Europe. I´m quite sure sales are just about the same in the rest of Europe.
BullSh*t Articles that is?...by the way i think the greatest doesn't even know that he is Ingored by like half the Site no one will ever know what he's saying lol
Lol....What is becoming of my favorite internet site?
its not like the site is going too change for u O.o
Will we next be searching in Antarctica for positive PS3 news. Any article that needs a translation I don't even bother with.
Come on people.
Denmark = the Global HUB of Next Gen Gaming Sales.
The world consist of different types of languages not just English furthermore,the 360 brand isn't as popular outside the US or UK..if you can't help it go dig for xbox news
To all you rude Xbox 360 nerds. Its starting and you cant do anything to stop it. PS3 will sell more cause it's better and has better fresh games. Not old crap like your games. Please stop your crying, it will not help anyone.
lol ok the PS has been around longer therefore their games are older not newer. Killzone 2, MGS 4, FF 1657, GT5, Ratchet and Clank 4-6...Haze (Multi) HS, Lair, Warhawk, Uncharted is all their is that's coming out this fall that's new. The big games next year are all the old ones. So please stop being lame.
edit:: I love how you guys disagree because I posted the PS's lineup. Everything I said was totally true, the PS exclusives have been around far longer than any Xbox ones.
If you dont care thats one thing, but dont try to undermine an entire country, thats a good indication why nobody likes americans.
btw Canada rulez!
I think it's important to note (if the data is reliable) that the PS3 is for the first time outselling the juggernaut Wii since their simultaneous release!
The figures also give an indication (that is congruent with other European/Asian figures) that the 360 is mostly a NA phenomenon.
Not really sure how that bodes for M$ =/
let's just compare na, japan, and whole eu.if we would do that, the n4g would be full of xbox360 outsells ps3 in zimbabwe, ps3 outsells wii in dominican republic.
Let's just count the entire world including the US. It is what it is, people are trying to make the PS3 bigger that what it is by sectioning off the sales. Stop doing that, it really makes no sense, which console currently has more total WORLD WIDE sales and please don't start that "the 360 has been out longer Bullsh!t". The Wii isn't using that excuse.
If you're coming to talk smack, the no excuses, just bring it. I mean really, based on the numbers totaled for the ENTIRE PLANET the xbox 360 is a more popular console and is owned by more people. Period. I know this goes again who most of you feel because this single arguement totally destroys all or theories of how one can make to PS3 appear more popular than the 360.
Just another way to look at it.
@fopums "That's why nobody likes Americans" Once again, EVERYBODY doesn't dislike Americans that is just a childish rant by and imature indivual. Anyone that can dislike an entire country and all of its people for a single or no apparent reason needs some help, because ALL Americans are not the same, just as all people from any country are not the same so grow up.
ps3 no doubt is far more dominant in europe compare to 360 well maybe except for UK
as far as I can judge. At least where I live I know way more people with a 360 than a ps3. Most of em were ps2 gamers, like myself.
why not find some positive 360 news instead of bit[hing all the time. This is just news from another part of the world because this site is international rather than just North American, it's not the end of the world for the 360 so relax.
If you guys can find good 360 news then become a contributor and start finding those good articles and put it on this site. Trolls will always exist, it's part of human nature not to agree completely with others, so just live with it. Find those interesting 360, PS3 and Wii articles because we all show interest in video games and the industry.
positive news for the xbox 360. IMO its already reaching its's peak and ppl are becoming more aware of the faulty hardware. Which overshadows the positive aspects of the system. Plus the only true exclusive game coming out is halo 3, ms has to ride that out till 2008.
Right now xbox just seems like a volkswagons in the car market. Very popular and ppl do buy the system cuz it has the horsepower and fun in it,but alot of other ppl want a reliable product like honda or toyota, this is what sony is right now with their ps3.
Well said. Bubble to you sir.
As a PS3 fan I totally agree with you because Sony is getting all the good news lately especially with last quarter 2007 games list and the solid 2008 line-up. There is more good PS3 news than the 360 or even the Wii. The 360's image has been shattered by those reliability issues and that is what's on the news all the time. Now we hear of the 360 core problems and how next year some (or most) games will require the use of a HDD. M$ is getting grilled on all sites and not just here.
M$ needs to start showing everyone what they got in their arsenal for next year because I only hear of Halo 3, Mass Effect and Bioshock. There are few more games coming for the 360 but you don't hear a whole lot of details like we do with future PS3 games. The rest of the games are multi-paltform and judging from those early beta COD 4 screens, PS3 seems to be getting the better deal but that could all change.
Bioshock is the only game I really, really want to play now but I will be patient and optimistic for that game to appear on the PS3 in a few months as long as it's not a shabby port and as long as it doesn't interfere with my Killzone and MGS4 game time.
Despite the PS3 fanboyism I still would like to hear of positive 360 and Wii news.
JSIN you my friend are an IDIOT! "judging from those early beta COD 4 screens, PS3 seems to be getting the better deal"
It's being deved on a 360, it's the lead platform for 2 something years now. Their will be no difference between the versions. Just because someone posted photos from two totally different dev points to try to make the PS3 look good doesn't mean you can spread it like it's true, it's already been debunked.
@Jsin. Well I apologize about the idiot claim. Just got irritated that someone posted that stupid picture comparison. The developers already said that's just part of level building they do. We all already know the 360 version looks amazing and alot better than that. We have seen videos and they all look amazing plus they have all been from the 360 version, FACT! If the 360 version looked worse they would be showing the PS3 version, they want it to look better not worse. Jebus I try to be impartial and say they'll look the same and still get attacked.
I did mention how those COD 4 screens look better on the PS3 but I also mentioned that it could all change. Please read everything before you start calling people idiots. I guess you will be buying the 360 version. Do you also recommend Halo 3, Mass Effect and Bioshock? Because all the other 360 fans only mention those 3 games.
I don't know why all the 360 fanboys are getting so uptight about this. Before the PS3 was released (in Europe anyway) all we got we post like this about how wonderful the 360 is selling and now that the PS3 is doing far better than you all expected you are all crying about it. Grow up.
Anyway good on Denmark. ;)
what is that, anyway don't bias countries, that's the reason a lot of people hate us, because it thinks, that it's superior, and there isn't any other country, hell my country 9th largest in the world, and no one in us knows it, it's kazakhstan, they think that whole area is russia.
I think everyone has gotten tired of bad behaving 360 fans and their dumb talk. Never in recorded gaming history has there been such bad language from some magazines and certain fanboys. But I think that the xbox 360 folks have been by far the worst. People out there, want to use their console for alot of things, not just hardcore gaming. With the PS3 you get all you want. And it works perfectly. My PS3 has never crasched. I can bet that the 36o goes down all the time. 360 = not a good buy today.
However, when you bought your 360 nothing else was on the market. So I forgive you, cause you didnt know any better.
Xbox is only showing dominance in the North American market. I live in canada, and the only bad thing I heard about the ps3 from most ppl around me is the the price.
Most ppl already have an eye on the ps3 as part of their DECISION SET for a future purchase without any other negative things to say about the hardware or games even. For those ppl who did marketing study's having a product in a alot of ppl's mind and in the decision set of ppl is rather important, esp when their is not real negative things to say about the ps3.
The xbox fanboys can bash all they want withouot any logic, but it dont matter their closed minded views will cause them to miss out on a nice entertainment unit.
I can smell it now 2010 we will see the xbox 3 and the xbox fanboys will say MS is better. Difference is they might get screwed just as much as what happened to the xbox 1.
And other than myself, I've only ever met a single person who's ever owned a PS3 or plans to buy one (though all my friends have PS2s).
It's not just the price that's keeping people away from the PS3 here, it's also games selection and competition. Yeah, MS has the big hardware failure issue (which is really bad), but most people can't name a single title on PS3 they're looking forward too except for the big Sony established franchises like MGS and FF.
So why buy a PS3 now? May as well wait until at least MGS IV comes out. Maybe it'll even be cheaper by then anyways... but you've also gotta consider that MS and Nintendo may have even more appealing lineups by then as well...
I also live in Canada and I haven't met a 360 user that isn't on their 2nd or 3rd 360 due to faulty hardware.
As for the claim that you don't know many who want a PS3, it would probably help to leave your basement a little more often. I wouldn't call your siblings a social environment.
And I'm a graduate student so I live in an apartment, not a basement ;-) But I never said people SHOULD buy a 360. Just wanted to point out what the sales numbers are indicating, PS3 sales are soft right now. Maybe when the heavy-hitters come out they'll pick up, who knows?
and I don't know one person that has or plans to buy a PS3. I do have a few friend that have had RROD but they still love the 360. Do you think that PS3 fans would be as loyal if the tables were turned???
why would anybody want a ps3, it doesn't have halo 3, gears of war, and the red rings. lol
Im a PS3 owner, but I would agree that the xbox 3 will probably be better than the ps3, we will se. However It will not be better than the PS4. Sony has learned alot, having the biggest market for consoles and it will last for many years ahead.
On a side note the total sales of Wii's sold is 4 units and the xbox 360 has sold 1 unit.
P.S. The total population of Denmark is 13 people.
Denmark is leading the way and soon every other country will follow suit...and the Ps3 will be outselling the Wii and the 360 by these same ratios....lol....WOW....
This forum post is nothing more than Hilarious. This is Good news for Sony Supporters needing a sign that their ps3 isn't going to stay in 3rd place, since its behind Nintendo by 5 millon and behind the 360 by 7 million, and its a deep, Hearty, middle of the gut laugh for "Gamers".
Japan has a smaller population density to China or Russia and yet account for almost twice in consoles sales when compared to the above territories,why?See how the argument could sway on both sides?
Oh, just be quiet. Look at the USA. That country is underpopulated. While many of you will say "Oh, 300 million, that's huge" or something along those lines, it is underpopulated. It's a huge country(the third or fourth largest in the world) that should have a population of well over 300 million. The only areas there that are well populated are the cities on the coastlines. The closer you go to the center the more underdeveloped and underpopulated the region becomes.
Um lone your retarded. I live in America and I live in Colorado and while I can agree that the coasts have more citizens all I can say to you is DUH! First off America is SLIGHTLY newer than Europe so their is reason one for lower population, ya know by a few hundred years. Secondly, the eastern coast is packed because one it's on the ocean but because it's where EVERYONE came and settled. The west coast is packed because not only is it gorgeous, but again it's THE OCEAN! Last case in point is I am from Colorado, which is in case you don't know right in the center of North America. Everywhere, I mean everywhere houses are being built, people are moving here like their is wildfires everywhere else. It's growing at such a massive rate it's not even funny. Please next time don't make some dumb assumption on a country you don't even live in. Secondly don't compare a continent that has been populated since the beginning of time to one that has been populated for about 400 years. Oh and the population is 514,600,000 not 300. Have a nice day.
edit:: oOo 2 agrees and 2 disagrees. So basically 2 americans agreed and 2 Europens disagreed just to disagree. Anyone with common sense and American knows what I said is true. I love how people disagree with fact.
edit @Lone dude I compared Europe because you're saying our country is "underpopulated" and so my point was underpopulated compared to who? Ok obviously Europe where you are from so the comparison is a perfect example. and no I will not be throwing Native Americans into this equation. I am talking about settlers who sat down, built a town, built a history and made the country what it is today. No disrespect to native americans or any of those other people but unfortunately we don't use stone houses built into mountains and tee-pee's to live in anymore. So than yes, 400 years once again is VERY valid. 1607 is when people starting coming from Europe and started what we all know as the "13 original colonies" that is the real start of history in America. Same reason why indians and everything else you mentioned don't count. They lived on a nameless piece of land, those who came in 1607 are the ones that made this "America." and I am sorry but I don't care what your geography teacher says, I live here, I see it everyday and I certainly know what's going on. "The closer you go to the center the more underdeveloped and underpopulated the region becomes." as for that quote if you got that out of a geography book, throw it away because it's probably about 15 or more years old. Secondly, if your teacher said that, he's just ignorant, or misinformed as I said with some lame old ass geography book. Basically it boils down to I know more about my country than he does, sorry. Just like you know more about yours. Oh and for the 514,600,000 I got that from Wikipedia, but you're correct it is 300 Million, the number I posted was all of North America, not the U.S.
@TKUR...WHAT? I am a little confused by your comment but um ok. America is newer than Europe I am pretty sure everyone knows this. If you read my post you would know that I mean when settlers came from Europe to settle here, that's what I consider "America." Pretty sure everyone else would agree as well. Plus I used the word "slightly" as a smartass remark, as Europe has far more history than America and has been around obviously ALOT longer.
Firstly, I never compared the USA, or the American continents for that matter, to Europe. I never once mentioned Europe, in fact, the USA was the only country I mentioned. Secondly... "Secondly don't compare a continent that has been populated since the beginning of time to one that has been populated for about 400 years." That is an incorrect comment. The American landmass has been populated for well more than a mere four hundred years. Unless of course you don't count the Native Americans, the Incas and the Aztecs, among others, as people. As for the population being 514,600,000:
I doubt that the population has increased by two thirds in less than a year.
Everything I said in my prior comment was something that was originally said by my geography teacher to me. And I can only imagine that he would know far more about geography and demographics than you.
"America is SLIGHTLY newer than Europe"
Dear God you need a history lesson. Wow...
