CVG: According to Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter and EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich, Xbox 360 was the clear frontrunner last month, ahead of DS, PS3 and Wii.
Sounds about right.
xbox360+kinect domination for the next few months good luck sony if sony starts to fall behind by 5 mil again they'll firesale MOVES and ps3s to catch back up, they wont let themselves get owned again
if kinect is the case, that widens the lead between PS3 and 360, then the fanboys might as well stop playing the 'number of sales' games.. because it will be just like Wii. every hard-core gamers ignores it because the system just doesn't have enough core games games as the two. already, the PS3 excels in softwares. there is not a single game in other systems that can match the quality and variety PS3 offers. gamers will soon realise that. personally they should have realised it by now but i heard fanboyism can cause blindness. i only own PS3 and i'm least bothered as 360 moves even more aggressively towards the casual market... because i know i'll get my dose of games. 2011 is gonna be a back-breaking and finger numbing year! peace!
"Michael Pachter" Good luck Microsoft you might need it with the guy analyst always go the opposite way.
imo if the 360 screams ahead and the ps3 loses it's gains recently then sony will be biting the bullet on the ps3 and will have to consider the ps4 to regain market dominance.
I find the party some xfans are having here because Patcher predictions LOL worthy. Just look at edhe post. PS4?? LMAO. It is still fresh the predictions of xbox outselling PS3 last quarter and see what really happened. PS3 came on top outselling xbox for a wide margin worldwide.
I highly doubt that as I have little faith that these motion controls will take over! I think most gamers will get them to try them out and then go back to the regular controllers. I have already started seeing Kinect and Move show up on Craigslist and such. As much as I don't want to buy into the motion control thing, I will probably be getting Kinect, because my wife and kids want it! As for me, i'll probably continue to play games with my 360 and DS3 controllers.
lets not forget the little party the sony fanboys had on here when they thought the ps3 was on 1 or 200k behind the 360!! i hate these sales bullshit threads, but dont forget, that fanboys on both sides love themm when they favour their console
to Micheal Pacter. You might want to look a little closer at the statements. Since when was the last time Pachter was right? You're just a little too naive to believe this. Also these aren't concrete numbers, these are estimates according to sales analyst. Jokes on you guys
I predict that the gap will be at about 5 million again by christmas and continue to widen @happyface they will give away millions of PS3's and Moves?
Hey did you check the PS3 numbers? Looks like it hasn't stopped selling after all. With the way you guys hype of the extra sales, you would expect the 360 to be selling at least a million more than the PS3 or the Wii every month but it's not. Don't you guys realize that? The 360 is doing well, but even with all of the marketing and media buzz, it's not blowing either console out of the water. Not by a longshot. They're all doing well. You guys refuse to see the bigger picture. The 360 sales are great, but the PS3 sales aren't slowing down. But enjoy this shallow "victory"
Since the US=The world! On a different note, what you all think about the weather we're having?/s
Please stop using the US=The world statement, everyone knows this. Thank you.
No surprise there and will continue to dominate
PS3 fanboys are mad at you.
Actually its not a surprise. When you think about where the Xbox is going (Going Casual) then its not a surprise at all. People bought the system to gear up for Kinect, and now they are getting Kinect and enjoying the experience. I am happy that you can get excited about the way Xbox is going... If I was an Xbox owner I would personally be pissed about the direction. But hey, PS3 is going to be here for you, when you want to play some adult games.
Actually, I'm happy with the release of Kinect. Kinect ushered in a new era of interface and I love controlling my dash controller-less and using the voice command. Can't wait for the next update that hopefully fully integrates Kinect into the dashboard! From what I can tell, the haters are usually the ones that don't own a Xbox 360!!!
"If I was an Xbox owner I would personally be pissed about the direction" if that's what MS wants to do then so be it. i had many years of great gaming from my 360 and will drop it as soon as the day comes when MS throws in the "core" towel. some of us have minds of our own. i already have a ps3 so im set. after gears3 we'll see what's up. although i think MS is going to bring out the next console soon.
MS should also give some indication of how Kinect is doing when they release their numbers too.
Outselling the DS even if it is in one territory is a big achievement. Now back to Dance Central.
You know very well when PS3 sales are up the roles are reversed to the nth degree. If you don't believe me, look at that unconfirmed sales article that said the 360 has sold 41 million. PS3 fans took it as truth even though ms confirmed 44.6.
that was confirmed then it was erased from history as a mistake after sony confirmed their numbers microsoft was like FUCK that add 3 million they were alright when ps3 was at 38.5 was it i think and then announcing the 360 numbers as they were still ahead of the ps3 at that time but then when sony announced they were at 41 million microsoft was in a rush to retcon everything
Keep telling yourself that, if it makes you sleep at night.
same goes to you too, Raikiri.
People buying cheep crap, because of hype.. That is a totally new concept!!! I will call it condom gaming,.. ! use, rebuy,.. This changes everything !! or the failure rate is bigger than I thought,..
and yet worldwide the ps3 will be on top were it matters
when you need to mention that worldwide sales are the ones that matter, not regional... quite scary...its almost as if geography just goes out the window "world? whats that?!"
Dang, you mentioned it, now you'll get quadrillion disagrees, but remember, I agreed with you and I'll go down with you! AMERICA IS NOT THE WORLD, ACCEPT THIS YOU XBOX FANBOYS.
"and yet worldwide the ps3 will be on top were it matters " absolute garbage statement
uk and usa? try again
Microsoft is lighting it up this year! Good stuff.
I really dont trust analysts especially Pacther. I rather wait for official numbers. And plus i dont think that kinect will have the same success as the wii Based on the last reports its (this is not in any order) 1. PS3 41.6 million sold to consumers 2.360 44.6 sold to Retailers Made a mistake these are predictions for the US not worldwide. So it makes sense that the 360 sold a bit over there with Kinect. I am curios to see what europes numbers are though since i live in spain
I believe you mean: 1.PS3 41.6 sold to Retailers 2.360 44.6 sold to Retailers
I tried to find on google something that explains what sony numbers really are. But i recalled that someone from sony says that they only state numbers sold to consumers. If anything knows of the article i would really appreciate it
I think the more important number is consoles in home, which we can never know for sure. However, if you calculate the assumed failure rates you can start to get an idea of which is probably in the lead. ie: I personally count for 3 xbox360 sales and 1 ps3 sale though currently have only one operating ps3 in my home.
Sony & MS wouldn't hold numbers for consoles sold directly to consumers as they sell their stock to the shops. Only the shops know how many are sold through to consumers. They can make guesses based in resupply requests but that, again, is shipped to retailer. this whole "consumer vs retailer" argument of the "console war" is complete and utter bs.
is a beast in America but im really impressed by the PS3's performance, the Wii continues to go down but the PSP is on its last rights!
I really hate the fact that console figures have been made public to just about anyone! Because one thing that's for sure, it will always devolve into a pissing match. What ever happened to the games?
@darmok77 ol for crying out freaking loud: that number is Sold to the consumer..if Sony wanted to be like sold to retail,They would have already added 3RD Q: 2010 number of shipped to their 2d Q: 2010 result's already..but Sony only post's Sold to consumer Number's on a Quarter by Quarter Basis: example: We said we'd asked SCEE exactly how it did calculate its sales - and which territories it covered. A spokesman for the company has now responded as follows: once again: "We calculate our install base by 'sell through' and have done for the last four years I believe", we asked for a little additional clarification... "We classify 'sell through' as the number of units consumers have actually purchased from retail. 'Sell in' is the number of units we've sold to retail." So, as far as we can see, Chris Lewis might be slightly off-beam in his assertion. We await any further clarification from Microsoft EMEA. http://spong.com/article/19... Once again if Sony was counting Shipped like your saying they would already have 3RD Q: 2010 posted #'s already! http://www.scei.co.jp/corpo... notice Sony's 3rd Q: 2010 number's are not there and notice this: "Unit Sales of Hardware (since April 2006)"
I love how Sony kids are worried that kinect is so influential it will undue all future hardcore games for the 360. Thanks for your misguided and unfounded concern.
I love how MS kids constantly feel the need to emphasize the 360's regional dominance in North America, whilst failing to take into account other parts of the world.
yet you are that "grownup" in your photo (I'm assuming, it'd be extremely bizarre to if thats not you), and troll sales articles with the account name ASSASYN 36o (misspelt for aesthetic purposes, something only kids do), then you're an extremely ****** individual *censored due to the erratic and sensitive behavior of mods* also, you thank the "sony kids" (i'm guessing the PS3 trolls) for their "misguided and unfounded concern" which previously claim is the worry that "kinect is so influential it will undo** all future hardcore games for the 360." now, although you are correct that it is unfounded, I have to point out that assuming otherwise (that kinect WON'T undo** all future hardcore games for the 360) is equally unfounded =| as an owner of a 360, you should at least accept that its something to be weary of considering the number of hardcore exclusives currently announced but obviously nothing to go trolling Kinect for, since MS would never leave 44.5 million owners in the water without SOMETHING @Ace - yeah, i've noticed that. I've also decided to ignore that, its pointless to try to convince some of them otherwise.
That's all there is to say.
That'll be interesting to see, but i'm sure you're wrong. anyone that ever wanted GT5 will doubtless either: ) already have a ps3 ) have gotten bored of waiting and have been playing forza instead. any other purchasers will be impulse buyers and though there may be a spike it's not going to be some sort of world-changer.
Keep telling yourself that, if it helps you sleep at night.
Let me guess, you're from the future!? @edhe That's not logic, it's a guess! And ultimately you're opinion. Unless of course you can read minds? Which would make you a extraordinary find, because not only would you be a time traveler, but also have extra-sensory perception.
It's just logic, not opinion :)
off topic. @ edhe if you were using logic, you'd be using logical steps to explain your logic. You haven't You have made extreme and provocative assumptions aroused by TreyBeyond's provocative, and off topic tolling statement (you fell for his trap, as did i) To say your statement has logic is erroneous, as is considering it as an opinion its just a guess, and its impossible to apply "logic" to such a situation (the market effects created by GT5) without highly complex formulas, market projections, close analysis of previous GT releases and their effect on the market, and above all, data you don't provide any of that, and you probably don't have access to any of that, so please stop trying to pass petty guesses as "logic" you insult those who actually USE logic.
Well thought out reply! Bubble added.
Pachter just needs to be quiet and stop suckin up to ms. Yeah, ms is an AMERICAN COMPANY and yes Pachter, you are AN AMERICAN. We get it. We also get how you are reporting USA SALES ONLY. The world>>>>1 country.
how many times the 360 outselling the ps3 in NA but yet the gap is getting smaller and smaller this is the only bots paradise as we all know when it comes to WW sales things are really different soon in the mid or the end of 2011 the ps3 will outsell the 360 i wander at that time where will you hide bots hahaha
Xbox 360 topped console sales in October ... but only in the US
And why does anyone here care about sales IF they DO NOT work for MS or Sony?
i keep hearing about worldwide sales. i live, game and exist in america, why should i give a s**t what they're playing in japan or wherever. how does what happens in japan affect me here in jersey? how does a particular game system selling well in dubai help me?
