NPD: Xbox 360 top selling home console again

Microsoft's system outsells Wii and PS3 in the US for the fourth month in a row (Nintendo DS, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

billbox2010  +   1948d ago
no more numbers in NPD?
That's less info than I expected. NPD sucks now...
StanLatMarveldotCom  +   1948d ago
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.
ImpartialMan  +   1948d ago
ehhh duplicate article??
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.
RageAgainstTheMShine  +   1947d ago
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'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.

T9X69  +   1948d ago
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?
StanLatMarveldotCom  +   1948d ago
@ T9X69
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.
StanLatMarveldotCom  +   1948d ago
@ TheBlackSmoke
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.
zerocool3397  +   1948d ago
Fanboys are idiots
@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.

@T9X69 lol... fanboy butt hurt..
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.
ImpartialMan  +   1948d ago

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 ?

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.

People like to ignore the fact
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.
zerocool3397  +   1947d ago
@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.

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

@ gtamike

"just wait

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?

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..

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.

face it the 360 is dying.. theres little to zero exclusives now.. its main focus and feature as of late is kinect

dragunrising  +   1948d ago
Your logic is flawed. You assume that most Xbox 360's are sold at the $199 price point. Wrong. Microsoft has never released the sales percentages of either SKU. My observation isn't worth much in its own right, however the 2 or so Best Buys in my area I visit always have more 4GB 360's on the shelf. If 2/3 of all 360 purchases are of the $300 Xbox 360 (same price as PS3), that amounts to an average price of $267 per 360 sold. If half the 360s sold were $200 and the other half $300, the price per console is $250. While these numbers are hypothetical you shouldn't assume something as true unless you know for a fact. The value of either console is subjective. There are people that are still completely happy playing their vintage Super NES.

One of the best comments i've read on n4g since 2006.

Regarding "2011 will be the year of the playstation 3" Dont even mentioned that, it's been going on since 2007 from ps3fanboys mouths along with Huge list of exclusives which was supposed to "KILL" 360. Some few names from the list disappeard very quickly like Final fantasy, Afrika, Haze, Lair, HS.. Still from that list and waiting is GT5. HOw time flies and yet the ps3fanboys day in day out blindly follow their master SONY and justify every fked up thing as something holy, like delaying GT5 just before release is also a sign from some holy spirit.

We've been enjoying non-stop HD gaming since Dec 2005 and yet they keep arguing about world domination sometime in future and hang on to 3 exclusive titles every year while dissing Dev's how can't port any MP games 100% on the level of a 360.

So kudos to MS again and again every year hitting the fallen console king Sony deeper and deeper into ground (3rd place).

Say what you want, but remember next year, you will have to wait until fall to experience your one exclusive. Hope its worth it. How did you even survive this year? Oh yeah, multiplats, which you cling onto desperately, because Microsoft won't make their own good games.

Ah, phooy on 2011 crap... when it happens it'll happen then we'll see the year of ps3... we dont know when the year will come out of 10 year life span but it'll come.

dont worry fannies 2011 will be the year of the ps3 xD
cygnuszero  +   1948d ago
Hehe, Ive been seeing people say that for years now. The 360 has outsold it every year.
HINDERIZATION  +   1947d ago
the system selling by itself doesn't mean crap.
it's the games that are out for it.
360 is mostly a FPS console.
PS3 is everything else and more.
homer  +   1947d ago
PS3 is also a great fps machine. Granted, the 360 controller imo is better fixed for a more enjoyable fps experience due to the triggers, but the ps3 has excellent shooters such as Killzone 2, Mag, and Resistance 1 and 2. (with Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 on the way. What fps exclusive does the 360 have besides Halo 3,Reach, and Odst(which should have been an expansion pack). With my luck, you guys will have more that I have not heard of and I will look like an idiot.(which after I post, someone will inevitably call me)

i actually prefer the PS3 control for any type of game. though i've been playing Modern Warfare 2 on a 360 control, it feels uncomfortable to me...

The ps3 sold great!!!!

Oh, wait....

Yea, it says "360"npd

Sorry got confused for a second. After reading all the posts on what makes the ps3 so great I thought I was in ps3 news.

The irony that they will say this place is over run by 360. Just look at this place, just look at it!
Dread  +   1948d ago
I know

If you only read the comments you would think that this is horrible news for the 360. It is always the same. Sales are never important unless its a MS exclusive like ALan Wake, in that case sales is super important.

and To all you sony extremist crybabys, every one knows that these are U.S. numbers!!!
and everyone knows that U.S. does not equal the world, but dont ignore the fact that the U.S. is the biggest gaming market. If it sells well in the U.S. developers will take notice. If the Playstation 3 sells better in Angola, it is not as significant as if it sold better in the U.S. do you undesrtand? its simple business...

Why are you people always playing the victims?

Oooh boo hoo, the big bad Sony fanboys....

Then you're turning round and insulting them, good call. I see the logic here and bow to your superior reasoning skills.
air1  +   1947d ago


did you bother to look at this place?

again take a fucking look around you, ignore the 10 or so positive 360 comments and just fvcking look! holy shit are you sony fanatics that fvcking hard headed, seriously... and i know there are 360 fanatics that do the same, but what the hell kid, i just saw one of them jump in front of a moving train when do you plan on joining him? hopefully it will be soon.

there wouldnt be no insulting if you wasnt in here in 360 news talking sh!t every month that npd isnt teh world. we get it, we got it years ago. when are you ppl going to get over it?

and wtf is the point on bringing up world wide when the ps3 is still in 3rd place WORLD WIDE... what is the logic in that? its been 5 years and WORLD WIDE its still in 3rd..

it doesnt mean that the ps3 is crap cause it is far from it. it has awesome games, but that doesnt change the fact that WORLD WIDE its in 3rd place..

do you actually not see who needs napkins for all the tears in hear? its like this place got hit with tsunami! but bu but my ps3! how is this! it does this this some of that and more of this how can it beeeeeee..`

It looks like alot of people are getting replacementsfor the old 360's, I know I need to get around to getting a new 360 for the 7th time.

Plus side is that I own other systems, from NES to PS3 and Wii. -_- But I do miss Halo.
Dread  +   1948d ago
why is it that the gran mayority of people in Ms sales news (AKA: sony crybaby extremists) do not know that you can replace your 360 for free. why would you buy a new system if you can use the warranty.

This is actually like the 11th month in a row it's outsold the PS3, so I guess they're including the Wii as well by saying 4 months.

I always lol @ people that were saying "the 360 is dead derp derp". It's leading the entire market for months now. It's a long way from being dead.
homer  +   1947d ago
In the USA. Remember this. The 360 has outsold the ps3 Worldwide ever since the slim. Get your facts straight.
0oAngeluso0  +   1948d ago
Not a surprise.
I still remember how PS3 fans were saying the PS3 would surpass the 360 this year in total sales. I knew the Slim was coming and with Reach, Fable 3, Kinect and Gears 3 on the way it will keep sales steady and on top. I'm sure we'll see a price drop sometime next year as well. Microsoft has done a heck of a job thus far.
Dread  +   1948d ago
yes they have and they deserve respect. They took down last generations big boy in the U.S.. regardless of what all these crybabys think, it is a huge accomplishment.
homer  +   1947d ago
360 did not take down sony, sony and Nintendo took down sony. Yes sony commited suicide with outrageous pricing and crappy and mediocre games. Nintendo was there to take their casual fanbase. There is a huge gap in between Kinect and Gears 3. If kinect fails, what will churn out the sales?
