NPD hardware sales for PS3, 360, Wii, and DS for December 2010.
good PS3 – 1.21 million for a moment there I thought it will sell less than 1 million. Glad to see both of my consoles are still performing well in the market Now I let you guys continue your flame wars
Wow PS3 higher than I thought. By the way MS sold more 360's in one month than in 5 years in Japan lol. Good numbers all around.
that NA does = the world. When it takes the combined numbers of other countries to equal or surpass a SINGLE territory like NA...you know it is THE market to sell to.
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 while 360 sold onle 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December" And your basing this on absolutely nothing.
Wii- 2.36 mil PS3- 1.21 mil X360- 1.86 mil Thought it was gonna be another close million gap like in November. I'll let up on Sony. Good job to all platforms. Edit: Dang, can't we all just get along for one day? Both sides cause I can see this getting nasty quick.
How has MS been crowing about leading sales in early reports when the Wii did over 2 million with the DS selling even more?
Because they're MS they crow with every opportunity. They know most people will forget, take the numbers and move on.
Are they not allowed to be pleased with their best sales month ever?
Honestly, no one did badly there... very little for fanboys to crow over.
Just phantom disagree...
Very little is all they require :(
PS3 did better than most people thought. Pretty sure this is a record for the 360, Wii is way way down from last year and still raping everything in sight. Join me later on as I state more of the fairly obvious.
Yep. That is a great number for PS3. Some dumb fanboy said NA is to PS3 what Japan is to 360. Without N.A. Sony would pull out of the console business. 360 does not exsist in Japan.
DS and Wii top two selling systems for 2010 in the USA with 8.5m and 7m..congrats Nintendo
Nintendo dominates. Nothing to see here.
Happy PS3 broke the million mark. Next up beat 360 lead.
it's not terrible. x360 outsold ps3 by 450k. i'm sure WW in december outsold x360
8-2=6 The gap is 650,000 for the month for those mathmatically challenged. -Death
Microsoft said it was the only console to show year-over-year console unit sales growth, up 42 percent. Overall, $6.2 billion was spent at retail on Xbox 360 hardware, peripherals and games. I would like to hear people say Microsoft should drop the Xbox division now.
PS3 is very close to Xbox, this should get interesting.
Over 600k units = close to you? In a month? What kinda rat poison are you smoking?
Don't know, i've been smoking too much lately
well stop, its clearly proving detrimental
Could had sworn the analysts said the 360 to outsell the Wii in December.
Actually analysts predicted Wii would be number 1 in december. All you gotta do is google it, no need to start lying
Patcher had the Wii outselling the 360 by only 100k units. Looks like he was wrong. How unexpected.
Great job to all consoles!
wow thats great sales! 360, ps3 and wii are doing great. but what are the WW figures? anyone no, and no i won't accept vgchartz.
Good sells for everyone.
Wow, the DS just keeps on truckin'.
It's interesting that the PS3 was unable to sell more in December of 2010 than it was in December in 2009. I guess Gran Turismo 5 isn't the system seller people thought it would be. Wii continues to outsell both but the numbers are plummeting fast. Nintendo should probably have the Wii successor ready by late 2012. The Xbox 360 had a big gain over 2009, surely do to the massive success with kinect and Xbox Live. Looking at worldwide, I'd put the 360 and PS3 fairly close now. The 360 with slight edge.
GT a system seller? don't think so, this isn't 1998.
Gran Turismo has always done better in Europe than it has in North America. I have no doubt GT5 has and will move consoles, just not as many as some people think. It is very rare for a single game to sell a console. Even if GT5 hits between 4 and 5 million sales and turns 1% in console sales, that is 40-50,000 additional units. If it is close to 10% you have around half a million more sales. That is incredibly impressive. Anyone that thinks a single game is going to sell millions of consoles is being incredibly unfair to the dev and manufacturer. A game may cement a buyers decision, but most likely it is the console price point and existing library of games that sell them. -Death
MGS4 did it.... it was the sole reason I got a 80gig PS3 bundle (MGS) back in 2008 (I think its 2008 ;/ ?)
Maybe GT5 is not a system seller, but think about it. Kinect is the top selling accessory in December, and PS3 numbers are close to Xbox numbers. I would expect quite a lot of new Xbox's sold for Kinect, so for PS3 to sell over a million, something must have been a system seller right? Maybe it was GT5, which sold alright in NA in December? Either that or Kinect is not a system seller. Which I firmly believe Kinect is a system seller. Or it might have been all those gift card deals when buying a PS3, there was quite a few of those. Point is, something was driving those sales, and it most likely was not advertising, since we know who wins in that department.
December is the highest selling month for all systems every year. The commercialization of Christmas is a huge system seller. -Death
remember this people Sony only reports unit shipped to retailers not sold thru consumers unlike MS reports unit sold to consumers. So no one really knows how many ps3 were sold to consumers in december.
Wow, you're an idiot.
microsoft report sold to retailers too... don't try to piss off us with your bullshit
NPD reports sales to customers only.
dude it's the oposite, microsoft reports shipped while sony reports sold.
i find it hard to believe any company is capable of accurately predicting how many items are truthfully sold to consumers. factoring in returns, promotions, and old stock/sku's. i don't see what the big deal is about reporting shipped totals anyways, how many units do you think are on the shelves at any given time? its not like if they both reported shipped units the gap would change all that much.
where are the "x360 doubled ps3 in december" numbers now mr. Patcher? tell us please. kinect helped microsoft this holidays but what it can do this year against the "sony's tank exclusives"? predict this mr. Patcher :/
^^^^^^ Yeah Mr. Patcher! What is xbox and the unstopable kinect going to do about all those exclusives that us ps3 fanboys won't buy?? Tell us. I mean just look at the massive dent Gt5 put on xbox 360 sales. Right?? Don't kid yourself . ps3 fanboys rather buy third party games such as CoD before they buy some sony exclusives. Just look at your all time best sellers and you'll quickly realise they aren't sony exclusives. What did GT5 do for the ps3 ?? Or MAG?? How about Heavy Rain?? If you said nothing then you are absolutely correct. The ps2 era is long gone and what weve learned from this gen is that sony exclusvies don't mean sh*t. Great sales all around. That kinect is a beast. 500 million well spent. Sony was to embarassed to even show MOVE digits. That's how bad it sold compared to the kinect.
Just to let you know, I buy more exclusives than third party titles. Just so you don't think all gamers are the same. I buy good games, since my budget is tight (college). So I buy quality games, both multi platform and exclusive, but my library consists of more exclusives. And if Kinect selling more with more advertising surprises you and makes you happy, I feel sorry for you. It was obvious it was going to sell, sales do not equal quality, thats something you must come to grips with. Not bashing Kinect, I actually like a few of the games, just saying it was obvious it was going to sell a bundle. At the same time I'm also loving Move.
meh shit sales for Sony of course the US supports the x360 despite its shoddy hardware
I think this is good sales for all consoles. Nothing to really complain about besides the fact that sales for Wii and PS3 are lower than they were in 2009. Which Wii is fading slowly and PS3 Slim was released 2009 to help boost December sales. Considering that all consoles are doing pretty good here, I expected a much larger gap honestly between Xbox and PS3 considering the success of Kinect. It appears a good portion of those 7.whatever million sold are to existing customers, which surprises me a little, but its good for MS if it sells to both new and existing customers.
lol 360 fanboys sales don't equal quality kinect was a piece of shit but only sold millions due to it's advertising, the move sold quite well (even with hardly any advertising) and heck it at least supports hardcore games
you're so bitter
@ zerox505 wow, salty much it still too early to declare Kinect, or Move, to be crap until many months (few yrs)games have been release and played to have a firm grip on its capabilities.
Ahh thats true, whoops -_-'
