Lets see what Kinect does for the 360.
Its weird that on the 2cond week of Reach 360 has fallen so close to the PS3, only place that seems to hold up very well is UK but i though sales would be falling down only till october and then keep it up a bit for holidays with kinect. Sony seems to have done a good and discrete job with move
before reach came out the 360 slim was doing the 80k for 3 weeks and with the likes of kinect fable 3 forza bundle coming out it really is no brainier things will pick up from there well into the holidays
PS3 got a nice boost from MOVE. Let's see what Kinect des for the X360.
Even with Move out, PS3 has yet to see 1st place worldwide since June Also, the gap has reduced to less than 60 K between ps3 and x360. It decreased by 10 k this week so GT5 better hurry up or else it will be closed
close what exactly.
Your point being?
Even in the US where they're based their numbers are so far off anything even close to being official it's not even funny. 360 numbers are way over what NPD says the 360 sold. If they can't even get the US right, how accurate are their numbers for Europe going to be? And there's still the matter of how they've claimed in the past that the 360 sells more than Microsoft says they shipped, and the 2 million difference between PS3 data and official numbers. VGChartz are all over the place, and they even say on their website - Use weekly numbers at your own risk. I think just given that fact, VGChartz's weekly numbers shouldn't be news every week. Even they don't stand by them.
first npd only does america sales while vg does all of NORTH AMERICIA. that the reason why npd is behind vg's. second ive fallowed vg for 3 years now and they havent once said any of the consoles were ahead of the offial data EVER.
So much for Move.
What about people like myself who already have a PS3 and bought move. Move is doing just fine it's just not a system seller extraordinaire yet. When Christmas comes around both move bundles and kinect bundles will sell. Kinect will only do better because unknowing parent who buys there kids anything they ask for. But I will hopefully have an opportunity to try it I'm not that optimistic about a bunch of kids games and bouncing a red ball like a fool. Move is a blast though and the fun has already lasted longer then my dust collected wii did
What will happen when GT5 comes out?
Well the prologue has sold very close to 5 million copies so it will most likely sell well :) Vgchartz has really undertracked that prologue. With about a million if I remember correctly. Although I don't think it will beat Halo: Reach in first week sales, but I think it will sell more over time than any of the Halo games.
ther is no good games yet on move , see nintendo wii has mario that why wii sell good first day.
see when gt5 hits,.. Europe is closed,.. and move will do fine,..
The PS3 is almost 4 years old now and has been at a decent price point for the past year. GT5 will appeal to the hardcore racing sim fans. I'm pretty sure most hardcore Sony fans have already purchased a PS3 for MGS4, GOW3, UC2, etc... Especially if we go by the same logic that most Microsoft fans already purchased a 360 for Halo or Gears. So at this point we are seeing sales go to the really late adopters and people purchasing multiple consoles. We have heard the same thing for 4 years now. Wait till "X" game comes out yet the PS3 is still in 3rd place. PS3 fanboys sure are patient...
3 immediate disagrees with no response. Multiple accounts? Angry PS3 fanboys that cant handle my opinion? Anyways as I stated we are already deep into this generation of consoles. Any hopes of a singular game moving millions of consoles for either Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo has dried up already.
I agree with you to a point but with Move and Kinect coming out at xmas could move users from the wii to go out and get a ps3 or 360 if they both push the device but as for the gamers you are right most people who were getting a next gen console have already got one both Reach and GT5 will not sell millions of consoles.
The only reason why the xbox keeps doing well is because of kids with parents that keep buying them for them even though they keep breaking. Yes we keep saying game x because we feel that gamers will sooner or later wake up and stop spending money on a company that keeps creating very few good exclusives and lots or crap. Even now I still will not give Microsoft any of my money out of principal because of what they didn't do at 1st with their console. They put it on the market early because they new that was the only way they could be on top (I don't include wii) and it worked because of so many gullible people and now because they were already committed they kept supporting them instead of telling them to F-off. This company gets away with murder and I'm sure even though the kinect (I think it will be anyways) is crap it will still sell better then move because kids don't know what Microsoft is doing to them they just keep buying into their advertising. It's maddening
dreamcast was one of the best systems on the market in it's time they couldn't market it it failed. Beta was the better product again couldn't market it, it failed. Just because it sells more does not mean it's better but that's your only argument every time. Stop being a Microsoft slave come to the ps3 side you will see from experience it's better I have played both systems a fair amount and there are some things x-box does better but not enough for me to overlook their actions. and they ways they have continuously disrespected their clients
And so I buy games. I am Xbox 360
decent price point, but the playstation sweet spot is 199$ when the ps3 hits that point, it will be like a third world war in sales!
360 second ps3 third
Man go look at any major release for the PS3 MGS4, and FF13, the numbers of the PS3 skyrocketed. Watch and see what GT5 does.
