Nintendo has responded to the latest NPD sales report and has revealed huge hardware sales for the Wii and DS.
360 sold 1.9 million but wow wii has 2.3 million, that's great now let's see Sony's numbers
http://latimesblogs.latimes... The Ps3 sold 1.2 million according to the LA Times the rest of the consoles sold DS 2.5 Wii 2.3 Xbox 360 1.9 PS3 1.2
I thought all the 360 guys were saying the the 360 was going to sell like 2.5 million consoles? What happened? What happened to all that 2-1 sales talk?
How would the LA Times know Sony's numbers? The NPD doesn't release exact numbers only the Companies can.
it's funny how Nintendo doesn't round up like MS.......Wii 2.36 and 360 1.86. :)
overall best two selling systems for the 2010 year in the USA.....congrats! :) butthurt disagrees..lol
Ps3 sold 1.2 million according to the LA Times in December very good numbers for US market. PS3 sold over 3 mill in EU and Japan while 360 sold onle 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December.
'PS3 sold over 3 mill in EU and Japan'... Erm, No it didn't. '360 sold onle 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December'... This is probably about correct. It would be a fair estimate to suggest that both consoles sold a similar amount overall in the two regions you mentioned... BUT I can't say that for sure, because I have no facts to back it up... I can only discuss the rumoured numbers. NO sources discuss the ridiculous numbers you have 'quoted'. And no, by 'rumoured numbers', I don't mean someone's random estimate from an n4g comment section :). EDIT: Oh! And the Wii has impressed again! I had no idea Nintendo were still shifting so many consoles!
Nope, PS3 only sold 10 units in EU and Japan while the Xbox sold 9 and 3/4. See, I can make up numbers too.
Really? http://www.gonintendo.com/v... Japan PS3 -- 1,542,258 X360 -- 231,258 You don't want me to post Europe numbers...
"PS3 sold over 3 mill in EU and Japan while 360 sold only 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December." The above is your quote. You're implying that the PS3 sold over 3 million in EU and Japan in December. To "back up" your information you post a link that shows the TOTAL sales for the PS3 in Japan for the ENTIRE year of 2010, not just December. Your source is not correlating with your information. EDIT: And yes, please do post the European numbers.
Lol dude get outta here with that nonsense. Where in the world did you pull those numbers out from? Lol come on
Funny how people say the Wii is slowing down xD
Even more funny is that it actually is. And still it's selling more than any other console.
It sold less than a year ago the same time. Yes it is slowing down. The 360 is the only console to see a sales increase while everything else dropped. So in that since yes it is not selling as much and if you have paid attention to this past year the sales have dropped compared to last year. This is by the way the first time the Wii has outsold the 360 after 6 months now.
Of course it's somewhat slowing down. Any console that has sold as much as the Wii for 4 years will of course see some kind of decline, but it's not a huge one at all. What all these journalists and fanboys are saying is that it's DYING, or rapidly starting to fail in sales, but that's simply not the case.
You don't seem to be paying attention then. the 360 is in the 5th year. By your logic of Wii in the 4th year that means the 360 should be declining then. Correct? I never said the Wii was dying and if I recall your original post didn't state anythin about people saying it was dying. We are discussing about the comment you made that clearly says it is slowing down which it is.
I didn't say YOU said it was dying. I was talking about journalists and fanboys. The 360 isn't in the same boat because it didn't sell as quickly as the Wii. I said, "Any console that has sold AS MUCH as the Wii." The Wii IS slowing down, but I was referring to the extent that these Wii haters are talking about. Nothing to argue about here really, you just misunderstood my statement.
I thought Wii was dead? I don't have one yet but I've been strongly considering getting one. I can't ignore Donkey Kong, Super Mario, and Link any longer!
Wii is alive and well and to the dude above, You do realize MS has an overhyped add on to help boost sales, right? and even with declining sells Wii still topped them? So that isn't saying much if someone say wii is declining.
? See that ignorance talking out your mouth. So if the Move was boosting sales like the 360 would u be saying the same thing? What is funny is that you ignore that the 360 outsold the PS3 the whole year. The PS3 with it's own version of motion control cost the same as the Kinect. It sold 8mil in 60 days. The Wii won December it lost the last 6 months. What is hard to understand. Actually read your facts before you before you speak. Get off that fanboy ignorance.
1st off Nobody ever cared about move like they did kinect, because move was seen as a wii clone 2nd MS hyped the hell out of kinect and even Oprah gave them away 3rd Wii has still outsold 360 YTD even while in a decline, which is all i was saying. How is stating a fact fanboyism??? so again my point remains valid, which is: Saying the Wii is in decline isn't saying much, because it's still outselling the competition.
