Microsoft is Rapidly Losing its Year Long Head Start in New Console Sales to Nintendo and Sony

I find it refreshing to see some statistics instead of the usual opinions. Enjoy!

Nintendo Wii vs Sony PlayStation 3 vs Microsoft Xbox 360: Q2 2007.

"Back in March, I outlined first quarter 2007 sales for a new generation of consumer electronics, including the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Zune, and estimated sales into the future. The numbers ended up working out largely as was predicted, as the graphics below indicate."

1...2..3..4.. i smell a flame war

Thanks but no thanks for the lackluster contribution. Unlike all the other threads this one is based on stats and not opinion or some rouge blog. It doesn't matter what side you prefer if any, the facts are the facts. Let's try and keep it on-topic from here on.

I understand you, but cmon now, fanboys don't respond to numbers and charts, there are always another site to say differently. Just stating the obvious of what this is most likely going to turn into. Just wanted to get my little quip in before I run for the hills. This should be a good one though, its hard to refute hard numbers and evidence, but im sure some will find a way

Heed thy warning....

Now thats a good news .

another 5.7 million to go but i am sure x360 would be overtaken by this year considering ps3's super sales advantage over x360 in EU and JAPAN.

in EU and JAPAN --x360 is a dead console

snoop_dizzle3639d ago

so if the 360 is a dead console(meaning sales) what does that make the PS3, near dead console sales wise?

what is the margin between the 360 sales and PS3 sales monthly? A few hundred thousand?

Adding to that this console war seem a lot more level game wise.

And on top of the the xbox 1 still survived then even with the 80 or 90 mil margin.

To make that statement, it would be best suited in a few years. And still it would probably be wrong.

Now if you meant dead by failure rates well then ok, but thats not what you were referring to.

The 360 costs $350 now. It was $400 for 1 year and 8 months. You think they might have reached their sell through at that price? The PS3 is relatively new there are people that want it at any price and some that want it at a lower price, case in point the 60 gig clearance sale. The Wii is just inexpensive and fun for casual gamers so it sells like crazy. I would say though how well will the Wii sell when the 360 is at $200 and the PS3 at $300? That controller is fun but in the end everyone is a graphics whore. This gen is a battle for the entertainment center of your home and has a long way to play out. What happens when MS gets those 360's in homes as set top boxes? These graphs are nice but they are not complete.

since i'm on my 6th 360 and M$ refuses to fix my bro's that doesn't play games... i hope M$ eventually dies a fiery gaming death.

What kind of tool are you? You went through the trouble to make the avatar.. Then you made that name on N4G.. What would possess you to be here if you're so anti Sony and so anti N4G..? Don't bother even replying, try and get a life, and consider yourself ignored.

Oh and.. numbers? lol Nice reputable website. Seriously, get a life dude.

um why the heck is the zune on the first chart?

edit : then where is the ipod on the first chart? sorry it just seems amateurish to have the zune on the chart and not zune's competition.

nekon3639d ago

If you had read the quote I included or the article itself it clearly says he's tracking "sales for a new generation of consumer electronics".

So where is the Iphone then.

Ju3639d ago (Edited 3639d ago )

If you follow up some more articles, you will find, that this one is actually a spin off of an HD and digital content discussion/analysis. That's where iPhone, iPod and AppleTV comes into play as well.
