Xbox 360 is the format with the highest amount of British game sales for September. Microsoft's console was responsible for 48.7 per cent of all games sold in the UK last month, according to figures from GfK Chart-Track.
Go ms go lol it is a more social fun experience when i play ps3 it seems so solitary.
That's 'cause I assume you and your friends play more on the 360. Me and my friends play on the ps3, and it would feel empty if I play on a 360.
I've been invited to many Party chats and I do find that LIVE players are more social-oriented. But my best group of friends are all on the PS3 and I've ironically been more of a social guy on my PS3. My only issue is sending messages is time-consuming and takes away from a gaming experience. I like Cross Chat as it is easily more convenient.
PS3 is dominating Germany charts
Wrong, the UK is the EU's No.1 territory
Not really much substance here for those looking for the state of console sales in the UK. Halo Reach sold well, that's not surprising. Medal of Honor also sold well on the 360, that's also not surprising. What I found interesting was the 360 spokesman (interesting how he's the only one this article bothered to quote) touting September as an awesome month due to Halo, Fifa, F1 and Dead Rising. Everyone expected Halo to sell well - Dead Rising 2 was a 360 game now ported to the PS3 and all indications are that they're selling almost equally - but really? Do you really want to draw attention to Fifa and F1? Maybe it's different in the UK, and correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't FIFA and F1 generally sell about 30% more on the PS3 overall? Even if they're selling a bit better in the UK - still, do you want to really draw attention to games where you're badly outsold worldwide by a console with (allegedly) a smaller install base? Personally, I'd be a little more careful with my PR spin. Stick to Halo and Medal of Honor. You know you're a hit with shooter fans - in my opinion it'd be best to stick with milking that for your PR speeches. At least you can back that up.
The power of Halo
I can imagine what those numbers would look like if the 360 was pirate proof.
The 360 is a big hit in the uk out of all the people I know only 4 people have a ps 3 and everyone else has a 360 so I trend to buy all my cross plat games for my xbox and I just get the exclusives for my ps3 apart from ff got that on the ps3 because its not a online game.
I do the same only exclusives touch my ps3
Yup same here. The ps3 has great exclusives but just not many. This year I only bought 2 games for my ps3. God of War 3 and Heavy Rain. 2 excellent games btw. And I dont see much coming out anytime soon. Looking forward to the next Motorstorm, Resistance 3, and Infamous 2.
I got all the exclusives this year I'm missing cross edge 3d dot hero and demon soul because they were limited stock getting them December
The King of all exclusives is coming December. GT5 is gonna be amazing.
I didnt know this article was about GT5 or the PS3 but thanks for informing me P.S i am not a GT fan never have been.. my friend is however doubt he will get a PS3 for it he will probably borrow mine and rent it
'I got all the exclusives this year I'm missing cross edge 3d dot hero and demon soul because they were limited stock getting them December' Because that ^^ is relevant to 'Xbox 360 Dominating UK charts'? I just like to remind people of GT5 of how big it actually is, GT attracts motor nuts more than gamers i think. My mate hates video games, but he bought a PS2, and bought 3 games, GT 3,GT 4 Prologue & GT4. He hasn't bought a console this gen, but he will queue up at midnight to get his GT5 & PS3.
Considering the amount of piracy on th xbox you have to give them credit the games are still selling I don't care about sales but think about it Sony has almost 0 piracy anyway good for ms
The 360 has been smacking the ps3 around for almost 20 weeks straight now worldwide. And that's with the launch of MOVE that failed to make a dent. The 360 has beaten the ps3 this gen. Get over it sony fanboys. Just wait till Kinect comes out. The ps3 has no chance.
Yes, because Kinect will be a bigger console seller GT5 this holiday season.
dude, kinect was on oprah the other day. you have no idea how many sales that is going to translate to. everything oprah touches turns to gold.
@Skadoosh And I wanna see your face when the 360devs will be announcing shiploads of kinect shovelware for the years coming. Get over it, the future of 360 is bright for MS, dark for their fanbase.
Sales sales sales. How marvelous. I'm starting to wonder why every 360 article is about sales or Kinect and not games. I know none of you Xbox 360 fanboys care about Kinects line up. So why is Kinect so important to you. Most of you won't even buy it.
Typical fanboy trying to put a negative spin on a positive 360 article. "Shit 360 owners are buying games! Best do a put down on Kinect, even though it has NOTHING to do with this article".
Panzer, code name d, and steel Battalions are the games I'm looking forward to at the moment. If these games work then Kinect will be the device that helps bring new gaming experiences to 360.
Who would have thought of thie scenario 5 years ago?
