Microsoft's system outsells Wii and PS3 in the US for the fourth month in a row
That's less info than I expected. NPD sucks now...
They put the responsibility on the console makers to report hardware sales that would then be verified by the NPD. So far, Microsoft and Nintendo have released their numbers, Sony has been the lone holdout.
i am guessing the reason why this same NPD result is being posted multiple time is because of Xbox sales. lol. and they keep argue that this site is ran by PS3 fanboys.
even if 360 sells more units than the Wii & the PS3 combined it will never top the PlayStation 3 nor imitate it in terms of quality and appeal. A monkey is a monkey even if its covered with gold.
It could be alot or it could be alittle its not been that great a margin the other months which is always nulled out and then overtaken by japans numbers. Congrats to microsoft though kinect will surely give them a boost aswell
those little 12yr olds love them some Xbox.
...and trolling on these comments section...
you must love your xbox then.
And don't forget about us 46 year olds!
46 year olds, 12 year olds, there's a connection somewhere, I just can't put my finger on...
@LoveRsama lmao Oh yippiechicken no! Come over to the light side of the force. PS3 love you long time. :P
Actually, I've got as PS3 (I've had my PS3 a lot longer than my 360) and a Wii also so I get the best that all 3 have to offer! It's awesome!
Seems like you and LoVeRSaMa seem to find 12 year old more than me! "there's a connection somewhere, I just can't put my finger on..." ^_^
It's a crazy world we live in where a console with more features and a wide variety of AAA exclusives can be outsold by a console with only Gears 3, Fable 3 and Kinect shovelware to look forward to.
I love stupid arguments like this. Exclusives doesn't = the only reason to own a console. There are hundreds and hundreds of mulitplatform games, as well as downloadable games on PSN/XBL. Some people might choose the 360 over PS3 because of the controller, interface, cheaper price, because their friends have it, etc. Some people have personal preferences you know. The Wii outsold both 360 and PS3, what's your excuse then?
Keeping in mind also that major mutliplatform releases like Call of Duty, Red Dead Redemption, GTAIV and Fallout 3 etc., outperform the major exclusives on the PS3 console.
"major mutliplatform releases like Call of Duty, Red Dead Redemption, GTAIV and Fallout 3 etc., outperform the major exclusives on the PS3 console." As do they the 360 exclusives (all 3 of them) except teh haloz. No, what am I saying? every 360 exclusive sells 10 million units, like Alan Wake.
I'm not disputing what you're saying. The biggest selling titles this generation have been multiplatform. PS3 owners place a great emphasis on exclusives but it's hasn't translated to hardware sales or great software totals. My point is and as T9X69 stated, a lot of different factors go into determining a console purchase. To make the assumption that the PS3 should sell better because it has a better lineup of exclusives is silly.
@TheLastGuardian I completely agree with T9X69 but there is something that he missed so I thought I would add to it. People buy a console because they want a console, they dont want a DVD player, Blu-Ray player, web browser etc.. they want a console. All the extras is a valid argument but when you can now get Blu-Ray players cheaper than a PS3 it doesn't seem like a bright idea to get one. Most people would rather use their laptop or PC for browsing the net, that's what they are there for. So you can get free online play, that doesn't mean that it works out just as cheap either. You say wide variety of AAA titles, I agree that there are some brilliant exclusives, but they are hardly in abundance. You call Kinect shovelware, I bet you have never tried it. I have tried the PS move and I can say that it really isn't anything spectacular and I could still do pretty much everything sat on my ass. Sad fact is, this is a fanboy statement like many more out there, you follow blind loyalty. You limit yourself and complain about stuff thinking you know everything when in reality your accusations and statements are nothing but unfounded and uneducated. Its a console, you dont owe Sony anything, you dont own shares in the company and they really have no clue who the hell you are regardless of how you think they look after the little people. Its a console, not the end of the world. Sony doesnt have to outsell MS and Nintendo, your life wont expire or the world wont explode if it doesnt. Get a grip man. @StanLatMarveldotCom most of the time they outperform on the Xbox actually, easy to make the mistake, just a few the other way around. I see it all the time when reviewing games.
u realize console sales do GO up during major triple title release. like halo. or MSG4, GT5 and such. so people DO care about the exclusives. so thats your pathetic excuse?? games are not that important for gaming console?? Lolol and ps3 exclusive games destroys xbox exclusives in terms of quality. not to mention the insane graphics. @zerocool U r one of them and you guys are contradicting yourselves.. fanboys can be stupid sometimes, but this is just getting desperate isnt it?? according to you, people want console for gaming, so all that extra features of PS3 is not as important(arguable, but ok) But if what you are saying is true, people will look at games(like exclusive games especially. As u said, game is important for gamers and PS3 has better exclusives. BTW,most games look almost identical on PS3 now days. unless u are talking about some low budgeted crap game that no one plays.
I think its time we left the "PS3 has all the extra stuff that gamers dont want" crap back in 2007. The PS3 does not have to prove its worth as a games console anymore. It is producing the best gaming library this gen has won goty for the last 2 years with its exclusives. The slim and price drop last year confirmed people were just waiting for the right price as the PS3 outsold the 360 right up until the 360 S a few months ago. The gap has closed to 4 million. 360 has a seen a boost because of the redesign and even cheaper arcade sku's which is too be expected. That is the only factor holding back the PS3 at this time. Please stop with the BS, In the end what makes a console unique is its exclusive features and content. given the choice im sure people would always choose more features and more games. As it stands the 360 is just a cheaper alternative with Halo. Last time I checked only halo and gears did phenomenal sales for 360 but that is to be expected when you put all your eggs in one basket,and with EA, Ubisoft, activision etc reporting higher revenue on PS3, this argument needs to die.
Exactly.. for xbox fanboys for argument sakes, even if people are looking at gaming aspect, PS3 has the edge... just from hardware side, it is not even comparable.... and you see that in exclusive games... hell, no game on xbox look as nearly good as KZ2 still... they talk about sales only when it is useful the them they always forget to mention 100 bucks cheaper console or the fact the exclusive games DO drive hardware sales. (MSG, ME2, Halo, GoW3)
People buy 360 because when you want to playt CoD there are least 2millions people online. people buys 360 because these exclusives you named better on 360 even in HD and PS3 version is Sub HD. you talking about features ? PS3 features ? every Frimware $ony remove any feature they have . AAA titles ? like heavy rain with major Bugs and GT5 too ? and every one of the takes forever to release. i dont understand in the internet PS3 fanboys are like billions but i dont know why they never buy these AAA titles on PS3 ? go support your lame $ony and every day less feature
There's only *one* good reason why you'd own a 360 over a PS3... your parents won't/didn't buy you a PS3. Straight up. If you earn your own money and you bought a 360 instead of a PS3, then you're a moron. Plain and simple.
That the 360 actually has a lot of decent features that aren't so well advertised. Custom soundtracks in game. Every game, no exceptions. And these custom soundtracks can be streamed over your network so there is no need to store your music locally. This is a big deal for me and helps me lean toward playing on the 360 more than I do on the ps3. I know I'm not the only one.
@ImpartialMan I wouldn't class myself as an Xbox or PS3 fanboy, heaven forbid a Nintendo fanboy. I like games, I play games, I use my laptop for anything like browsing the net and such. I am a gaming fanboy. I don't distinguish between consoles because lets face it, there are good games on both making the fanboy argument redundant. I don't think either console has the better exclusives when it comes to the PS3 and the Xbox. They both have exclusives that all appeal to a particular market. I enjoy both ranges and each appeal to me in different ways. I like the sandbox of LBP, I like the blowing shit up on Halo and Gears. I like the story on Uncharted.. all these games appeal in different ways. In your way you are right, for you the PS3 has better releases but for someone else it might be the Xbox. I have no preference. If a game is good, it doesn't matter what the console. Hell I still like some games that are so old that most young people wont have even heard of them. Its about what you like. People kick off over the silliest of reasons and the only thing it shows is that people are stupid and they will believe anything. They will believe a lie because they want to believe it. I think people agreeing and disagreeing with you shows that not everyone has the same opinion, good job really otherwise we would all be sheep. Everyone is always talking about how powerful it is, its not that much difference and unless you have microscopes for eyes you really wont see it. In this day and age, people take gameplay over graphics. If a game is good, why should the graphics matter if you can see it well enough.
Hide your kids, hide your wife and hide your husbands because the 360 is raping everybody out herre!
You mean in the house fire it caused?
fail comeback is fail
One bubble is only one lol.
SONY need a $199 PS3 i think. $299 is still to much[well not for me but for a normal person who walks into a shop, 99% of the time they go for the cheapest. Sad but true]
when I think of a gaming console I don’t think about web browser or bluray player
I think about games, and Xbox is just a better experience, when I turn on my xbox its too play
I've never touched Netflix or facebook I know it has them but im just here to play
sure the ps3 has more exclusives but not all of them appeal to me
and multiplat games just play better on 360
my ps3 has been collecting dust since I got it back from sony mine got YLOD so I trade it for a slim for $150
the same thing all the time with NPD, its worldwide sales that matter.. its really no suprise 360 sells more in the US it always has lol
but is it doing so well worldwide? no it isn't..
and remember sony work out PS3 sales by the amount bought from retailers, not shipped to retailers like microsoft do with the 360
So, you know how the inner workings are at the two companies? Do you do the 'numbers' yourself? Is that how you're so insightful?! You got proof?
must be the halo reach effect. fable 3 lookin well too
"NPD sucks now... "
why cuz it dosent show the ps3 as #1?
i must be blind the article says "Friday 15-Oct-2010 12:17 AM Microsoft's system outsells Wii and PS3 in the US for the fourth month in a row" well here in America its thursday october 14 2010. 5:21 west coast and 8:21 east cost
There are other countries you know :-p CVG is UK based.
"Friday 15-Oct-2010 12:17 AM Microsoft's system outsells Wii and PS3 in the US for the fourth month in a row" It clearly stats the US(united states) but yeah, I can see what you are saying
Stop your crying.
4th month in a row? I thought 360 has always outsold the PS3 by 2 billion every NPD since the beginning of time?
you mean since they released their console 1 year before the PS3 ?
@Moentjers Shhhh, your not supposed to use the real facts.
@TheBlackSmoke I'm sorry I broke the code. Must be friday or something like that. Edit: still find it funny you have more disagrees than me.
ya we know xbawx is top. good for it and its fanboys.
If it was the other way around and PS3 was on top, you wouldn't be saying a damn thing. In fact, you would probably be the first to hit the approve button.
i remember when this site had real news about games every 10 minutes.
but now it seems like gaming is all about numbers.
YEEAaHH BooOOYYYEE!!!! MICROSOFT REPRESENT!!
I kinda fell bad for the haters. I keep tellin u droids watch out for the domination.
PS3 will never be FIRST and will always be LAST place.
PS3 fanboys dont wanna hear numbers from NPD, Microsoft, VGCharts, nor from $ony...embarassing and disappointing. Bunch of sore losers.
why do you care about sales so much? you win nothing play games instead of wasting all that energy for trolling thank goodness I have all 3 systems this gen
If it weren't for sales we wouldn't even be playing quality games right now, imagine if Killzone 1 or GT sold only 10 copy's, there wouldn't be no money for sequels. Sales ARE important and besides it's interesting to know how many sales your favorite game has, so you can expect a sequel or some sort of successor.
I have played some of the best games in my life thanks to PS3 Exclusives. I don't feel like sore loser at all. If you want to play the numbers game all Sony really has to do is lower the price again.
GT5 will sell alot of PS3's
And start losing money again? Sony knows that if they start a price-war, The Xbox 360 will rape them... They will lose a lot of money.
@ gtamike "just wait GT5 will sell alot of PS3's (sic)" well that's what they said about the ps3 Move launch. While plenty of move controllers have been sold, they have not really increased the sales of ps3 skus at all. Existing hardcore ps3 owners are the only ones who seem interested in the Move, while significant numbers of new ps3 customers seem strangely absent. Undoubtedly GT5 will sell bucketloads of copies. But will it shift more ps3 skus? hmmm.
"I kinda fell bad for the haters. I keep tellin u droids watch out for the domination."
It's almost as though he doesn't even notice the "in the US" part.
There's more to this planet than the land of the beef burger.. Or do you say hamburger?
lol @dtrain yet here you are hating on PS3 owners..
well done your favourite console outsells the ps3 in the US.. does it do the same worldwide? nah..
How do sony work out PS3 sales? by how many systems are purchased FROM the retailers
How do microsoft work out 360 sales? by how many systems are purchased BY the retailers..
That fact alone shows why the 360 has its small lead over PS3 atm, plus the fact the 360 had a year headstart.. and the fact the 360 sells more in the US than any other region.. and this articles about US sales..
so yeah keep it up guys.. your uber console is dying everywhere else lol
(by the way i do own a 360 and a ps3, but i like to talk facts..sorry)
@dtrain21 seeing as how the PS3 has been out selling the 360 worldwide for sometime now there could definately be a swap between 360 and PS3 for second place.
Just like 360 fanboys don't want to hear about worldwide sales or the increase in sales momentum for the PS3 in EU.
Of course it was. The PS3 is basically invisible in America.
Its pretty amazing how the PS3 has managed to close the gap whilst being invisible eh?. It really does everything
That's ridiculous. I'm in Texas. Every gamer I know does it on a PS3. The only 360 that exists in my universe is co-owned by two of my little brothers, and it hasn't been turned on since Gears 2. It sits in one of their closets, while both are online with their PS3s every single night. At one time, three of my friends had 360s. Now none of them do. Something about multiple failures... maybe you heard. They all have PS3s now and incredibly, none of them saw the amazing advantage with XBL that we hear so much about on the interwebz.
very well said blacksmoke, and this is with not using alot of advertising dlls. Ive played all systems but sony has yet to let me down, im a big tech guy so i cant find myself supporting a system with high failure rates. Sad thing is the target i work at has been sold out of move for the ppast 2 weeks.
face it the 360 is dying.. theres little to zero exclusives now.. its main focus and feature as of late is kinect
after that it only has kinect games, sales from blackops, gears of war2 and fable 3 to keep it going..
almost every 360 owner i know is now jumping the ps3 bandwagon or plans to at christmas
it just doesnt offer anything worthwhile anymore
actually i'm playin Halo and listening to music and typing on N4G during the break...so i do play games. So i guess if your commenting to me then why aren't u playin games or the MOVE...let me guess you got bored wit MAG and Kung Fu Rider. Sounds like your a bitter fanboy cuz multi owners wouldn't care to comment towards me
Wowwwww... a piece of hardware name Xbot 360 at $199 even $99 is outselling a $299 console for the fourth month in a row, mmmmmmmmmmm... I ask myself why???
It’s like comparing a Dollar burger from McDonalds (360) to a Six Dollar burger from Carl's Jr (ps3).
Of course more people are going to McDonalds for chipper price Burger.
Can't believe people still buying 360 just WOWWWW... I'm really impress.
Thanks god I'm not in the list.
Look at the wii thats why this is the only truth about sales... like it or not, who disagree is a big big xbot fanboy.
You are right. It's also the reason the Wii got on top in the first place. It's amazing to me that the PS3 got as far as it has at the price it started the generation at.
