If Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg is to be believed this weeks 360 NPD numbers could be quite big, especially with the arrival of Black Ops and Kinect.
why don't you hint at making some games instead?
Haha! Ok, that made me laugh. Greenburg just makes you want to slap that big ol' bald head of his.
But I bet that the attached face makes you want to kiss Krazy Kaz.
"why don't you hint at making some games instead?" Why don't you stay on topic? Lol...
MS bluffed with big November NPD.
@mimbly you do not own a 360 so why do you care.
You have shares with Microsoft?
Those of us who do own a 360 care.
Well so far this past few months i have played and finished fallout vegas, vanquish, DR2, Halo:Reach,Black ops, Fable 3 and i have just started to play castlevania - That sounds like there are enoiugh games to play on in my book
Well there will be plenty of good multiplat games on both systems.But Seriously people...By now we all know that the xbox has a slightly better online experience for multiplats But the PS3 has the best games! Its 3 years and three games that will win( if gow or game of the year are playstation exclusives... Plus next year will be the strangest year in term of GOTY condenders...there will be at least 10 goty games... and over half will be ps3 exclusives...
I really don't care about the numbers game anymore...since all 3 consoles are selling well....but WTF.....WHY does MS and her supporters ONLY brag about the ONE region that they lead in while completely IGNORING the other 2 regions that make the 360 the WORST selling console WORLDWIDE of the 3 and the worst selling worldwide of the HD consoles? That's like saying that AG beat up someone in 3rd period while in 5 and 6th period he gets his ass kicked....yet he only talks about how much ass he kicked in 3rd period...even with 2 black eyes staring at you while he "brags".
Because USA is the most important.. and that's where most of us live that are big 360 fans.
"WHY does MS and her supporters ONLY brag about the ONE region that they lead in while completely IGNORING the other 2 regions that make the 360 the WORST selling console" you answered the question yourself. why would MS brag about a non-existent "lead" on other regions it doesn't have a lead in? it can't. dur.
Why would they brag about an area they're losing in? I realize this is probably a rhetorical question that you're asking, but jeez. If you don't care about the numbers game then why are you commenting on it?
Maybe because that's not his job?
yeah, it's just his job to spin numbers and make bogus claims.
I want too see how many units both ps3 and xbox. A lot of people was saying once gt5 comes out that it was going to be over for the xbox and gt5 will be a system seller, gotta see theses GODLY sales. We all know xbox sold and did good since kinect Launched.
Microsoft and Kinect sucks. ;)
I feel ashamed that we have the same amount of bubbles.
I don't. :)
Troll on, then.
Ok, troll police. By the way, that pic of Aaron Greenturd looks like he farted and doesn't want anyone to smell it..lol :)
U.S. market boasted about like the rest of the world doesn't exist in 3...2...1...
Not hint at making games just make them..
Lol, being a fan of Xbox, that made me laugh. Kind of sad.
Hahaha, can`t wait.
with kinect bundles sold out in a lot of places sales should be high!!!
disagrees and they aren't gonna change anything!. My friend just got kinect this morning! Last night we agreed he would get the bundle with 4gb and we'd split the price. This morning BBuy got some plain kinect in he grabbed 1 of the 2 left!! No bundle though... I was like you punkass. Only good thing is I get to try it out before I buy one
Looks like greenburg wants to let the cat out of the bag about how well the 360 has done in November. This should be interesting to see
we are never going to get the next gen xbox 720 at this rate. The 360 and kinect are just selling so damn well, running on multiflatform games only -- but its workig! 360 has never been selling so well.
Im pretty sure it sold better in its first year when it had no competition. Since then its been downhill all the way.
Only in the US
Should make Microsoft happy that Xbox Brand is doing good in America while Windows Phone 7 fails horribly.
What about the rest of the world? M$ better hope kinect keeps selling until Gears 3 comes out.
Right, well you can take your numbers and have fun counting them. Ms is just letting 3rd party developers take over their system, no more exclusives from MS studios. The investors at MS see it as a win win, they have the install base, so why make games when others will do it for you. In the end it will help MS make some money back on the xbox division, but will it keep gamers at the same time? I am willing to bet not the smart ones. Why would I just play on a 360 when I can have a PS3 with all the same games, plus all the amazing Sony projects. Sure, talk about how this or that is better on 360 because it is one frame faster. Well let's see a 360 play uncharted 2, LB2, Gran Turismo, Killzone 3, MGS4, oh that's right it can't. I feel sorry for people who only play on 360 and have been loyal to the brand because you are getting totally screwed by MS.
MS don't announce games 4 years in advance.
Alan Wake says hi!
GT5 says Hello back
Too Human, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction.....
good burn matrix.
Notice how those aren't Microsoft games but Remedy, Ubisoft and Silicon Knights games. So again, Microsoft do not announce games years in advance, Forza 3 was announced 5 months before release.
lol okay christian
Thank you Christian, I swear to god these PS3 Drones are out of their mind. I almost fell out of my chair when I saw that list. Not one game on it was developed by MS. YA'LL can't really sit there and tell me that Sony doesn't announce games WAY earlier than MS. I'm not saying it's bad, but it’s as true as the truth can get.
Alan Wack, and that rip off game that looks like 300 being made by the people that made crysis.
PD develop GT, not Sony.
Greenberg and Pachter. The two most awesome dudes in the industry whom EVERYONE wants to hear from as much as possible.
"Greenberg brags as MS tumbles to 3rd place" There, I fixed the Title for ya.
It might be a game announcement. After they post the sales, they reveal their big next exclusive. I hope but i wont expect anything beyond just sales numbers.
I'm sure all the console manufacturers will see a spike - mainly due to Black Ops. I expect the 360's spike to be the highest.
Honestly, since there is no one officially reporting U.S. hardware sales anymore, I take numbers from all companies with a grain of salt. They'll tell you they sold a fuckton now, then in February revise the numbers down right before they have to submit real numbers to their shareholders. It happens all the time, especially when there is no one out there to officially call them on it.
Still won't overcome the dark descent into last place. You know, since the rest of the world prefers PS3 and Wii.
It's kinda true. Even those that disagree are just bitter about what they are already realising. Not that it truly matters, but it's kinda obvious the 360 has peaked. There are still opportunities for great games on the system and for gamers, that's great, but the PS3 is gaining popularity, momentum and enough of that to overtake the 360. For years the PS3 has been literally hounded by past factors and fanboy and journalistic ignorance and bias that is quite frankly in many cases, disgusting! Now that the tides are turning, people (and in particular) 360 fanboy loyalists... need to deal with the truth.
Notice how its only MS/Greenberg that still seem to care about NPD ever since they stopped officially outing the numbers publically. But I guess, when your competitors are wiping the floor with your ass in Europe and Japan...what more can you do.
Really? MS announced they were the best selling console in Europe for 5th month running in their financial statement. I guess it can't have been getting it's ass whooped that hard? 360 also dominates over PS3 in Canda, UK, Austrailia, heck, pretty much all english speaking countrys :-) and I'm sure MS are upset when PS3 outsells 360 in Japan by 30 odd k, when they're outselling PS3 in NA by the hundreds of thousands. Indeed NA isn't the world, thankfully, 360 sells pretty damn well elsewhere too.
Lol! Oh Jesus Seece brought his stink here as well. Guys, just bubble down this fungus. He's the biggest MS schill on Vgchartz and he's decided to bring his slagging here. Just ignore him and laugh it off, he's pretty much been laughed off of vgchartz.
Seecwe please provide #'s I thought 360 loses worldwide every year? Please provide proof that the only place beating ps3 is in japan and by 30 units. My only concern with you data is if it were true one wouldnt be catching up to the other no by the way you make it sound it not only shouldn't be catching up but it should be falling behind at record pace.
Wow, you think 360 loses WW every year? You know when PS3 launched 360 only had like a 5 mill lead? So how can it have lost 2006,2007,2008,2009 & 2010 and still be winning by 3.6 mill shipped? I said 30k, not 30 units. And that's PS3 on a good week. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... "Xbox 360 launched in the UK five years ago today, and Microsoft is celebrating by announcing that the 360 has been the number one console in Europe and the US for the past five months. "
Is this not right? http://techhall.wordpress.c... I could of sworn the gap was bigger. I also thought they had an article stating MS europe isnt inclusive of really all of europe i could be wrong. but im pretty sure its was over 5 million and the link i posted is showing that ps3 has beaten 360 in worldwide sales for at least 3 years please read the comments where they say how can you compare WW sales in 2006(not released) and then 2007 (only out a couple months)
Its also a widely known fact that the PS3 is the 3rd fastest selling console in history. The PS2 and Wii being one and two.
What about the rest of the world? I mean the world doesnt equal north america
Nobody is saying it does? How do all NPD articles turn out like this? The damage control is mind blowing "NPD Reports for November" "YET BUT OMG NPD /= WORLD SO THERE!"
Well becasue the MS chest bumping has some how convinced all the youngins who support it that USA=the world and its the only important region. WHICH IT IS NOt
selective information take in by 360 guys is sad. Honestly even when ps3 wasnt doing as good as it is now, us ps3 users took a look at the whole world not just japan where ps3 crushed xbox. You guys just pick 1 region where you are winning so you can feel smug about it. Good for you i guess -it doesnt bother me one bit. I sincerely hope you guys are not regretting xbox purchase. If i had one i would be upset. You guys pay a premium for this system in xbox live fees and all you are getting is kinect. While i dont care as this does not affect me, if i was in your shoes i would not be happy. Take care.
It's been commonly realised that 360 fans don't really care for all the details, and would rather just use information that works to their agenda. I suppose you could say most people who are defending something they like will be selective about what they say. I agree about that if I had a 360, I would be pretty frustrated right now. Sure I would want to defend it, but damn... I'd be bitter looking at the PS3 lineup and rise in popularity.
i wouldnt doubt they took the top spot again considering how closely tied black ops is to 360 and that Kinect came out. Hell, you can have a conspiracey theory that the reason the PS3 version of Blackops came out so bad was because they were in bed with MS so much, so they had no incentive to optimize for PS3.
