With the December NPD figures now in, a clear winner for the year of 2010 has been recorded. Though the Xbox 360 fought valiantly in the later months, the might of Nintendo and the Wii could not be matched in the home console market.
2,3 million difference. in japan in 2010 ps3 1,542,000 x360 231,000 http://www.gonintendo.com/v... x360 1 million more US+japan
So what? O.o
The last time I checked Sony was making a shitload of money with those "poor" 35M of PS3, no one's losing here
In others there is a bit more maturity (a bit) and this one...WOW. I think it should be clarified. This is an NPD article. In a media create one or GFK one it is ok to post that regions sales numbers. If you are having to use numbers from somewhere else to validate your presence here then you really must be sore.

OH S-IT Wii declined in 2010... *jumps off a bridge*
xbox is usa sony & nintendo is the world
Sony and Nintendo are the world.
What about Nintendo? What are they the solar system? @lengend Sony and Nintendo are both the world? If thats the case wouldn't they each be half the world? How can they both be the world at the same time? This analogy is complex stuff...
The Wii is a friggin beast is all I can say.
Holy freaking crap! Not bad for 2010.
2010 EU, US, Japan sales. Japan ps3 --- 1,54 mill x360 --- 231K Europe ps3 --- 2,52 mill x360 --- 1,24 mill US PS3 --- 4.33 million 360 --- 6.76 million Total 2. PS3 - 839 mill 3. 360 - 823 mill LOL @ the disagrees, fanbots angry because of 100k difference? grow up.
Becareful because to the 360 fanboys USA is the whole world!
Just curious...Sony said they expected sales in Fiscal 2010 to be 15 million world wide...you'd have to subtract Jan-Mar 2010 and add in Jan-Mar 2011 to get there but how the hell can they be 6.5 million off their projections? Not sure what MS had projected last year for Fiscal 2010 but I thought it was around 11 mill?
So a 160k difference world wide for 2010? I guess the PS3 is not going to surpass the 360 anytime in the next oh....30 years. At least that gives you something to keep looking forward too. You Sony fanboys ready to call this gen a write off yet or do you have to lower the bar so much now that 160k world wide over 1 year is something to now be proud of?
No. If sony drops the PS3 price to $199 it will surpass the xbox quickly unless microsoft drops the price like they always does after getting their butts kicked.
@ MrSancho1 Ah the good ol' "IF" argument. Typical Sony fanboy logic. You say: "microsoft drops the price like they always does after getting their butts kicked." right after saying: "If sony drops the PS3 price to $199" Not realizing that you are actually saying "IF" Sony lowers their price to $199, it's because they are getting their butts kicked currently by MS....yet you started off your comment with the word: "NO" When the appropriate word should have been: "YES" Since you have already claimed that MS would lower their prices in response to Sony lowering theirs thus continuing the cycle.
you really dont understand what you just typed do you? Those numbers are virtually a tie which is to say that sony didnt gain ANY ground on 360 sales overall. Very very small but virtually no gain. It would be a bigger chest thumper if the numbers were a bigger difference. Something like 1-2 million is worth bragging about. 100k....thats...thats just to funny. 3rd place overall is just to hard for some to accept. Its a bronze medal in the olympics which is better than no medal at all.
Congrats Nintendo! Not only December, but they have the top 2 best selling systems overall for 2010 in USA. Great news leading into March to start another "journey" for good ole' Ninty. :)
Oh man, after reading these results I can finally breathe and sleep! I have so much invested in all of these companies!
Just looking at those numbers has me promising myself 1 thing and this isn't as a fanboy or loyal to any company but just as a guy looking at sales numbers , I will never doubt Microsoft and 360 again coz they took a huge gamble with kinect and it's clearly paid off and I slagged it off but I'm now munching crow lol . Good on them though they deserve credit from everyone who ever slated kinect and said it would flop imo.
both sony and ms took a risk trying to steal some of nintendos market audience, and it seems like both are doing fine in the motion control area...now its just a matter of how long will they be supported
Xbox is still selling well. Good news for ms... Sony is still behind in the U.S. Looks like the good ol USA prefers the 360 over ps3.
Strong holiday considering the economic climate.
PS3 is still taking a beating in the US while the 360 still takes a beating everywhere else. Not much has changed.
Where do all the imaginary WW figures coming from according to the Sony worshippers? I need a link, and VGchartz is not one of them.
as always ps3 boys don't want to admit defeat. every month the 360 creams the ps3 in the NPD but some how they must post Japan numbers to make them feel better. Japan is just a small market compared to the U.S. and the U.K. and the 360 is selling on par with the ps3.
Defeat of what? The PS3 selling great, the PS3 is the best console for core gamers (and the PC), the only console that has over 20 quality exclusives coming this year, plus all multi plats. 360 has nothing for core gamers only one game Gears 3 and i bet its coming to the PC too and everything else is casual gimmicky games, sadly kinect is the main focus of MS they want to make money they don't care about their core gamers...
