Microsoft says its December hardware sales were so high the company had to pull inventory planned for January and February to meet the demand
I hope no one was hurt.
Oh, believe me...... they were. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I think some fanboys may be (butt)hurt over the success of Kinect but thats about it.
Guess no one looked at the side bar saying 360 sold 1.9 million in december.
if your xbox ends the year with a bang your disc wll be scratched and you will probably get the famous RROD
If its selling and doing well, then more power to ms and the people who bought it.... I have no jealousy or envy towards them and hope them the best that their purchase of kinect pays off.... Eventually...... I on the otherhand enjoy my move controller and cant wait to play kz3 and deadspace extractions with it along with all the other games;-). ...
hope they don't regret spending $150 then that's hurt.
yeah... more money for MS to spend on marketing
It's the biggest year for Xbox, if you're a stock holder and soccer mom. But if you're a 360 gamer, you pretty much got left out this year.
I fail to see how core gamers got left out this year. OH, I can see how YOU see core gamers got left out... that's really simple: you hate Microsoft enough to squelch rationality.
The unfortunate thing about that is that it goes both ways too. You love Microsoft enough to squelch rationality... and to squelch the truth: Microsoft's abandonment of core gamers for soccer moms.
people seems to get confused over this third party isnt MS that means that even if u do have some games to play they are not MS's u support a company that doesnt invest in u... how dumb is that? jesus SONY doesnt charge u anything for using a PS3.. yet they keep making games u guys keep paying and paying even after u bought your xbox and u get nothing in return that gotta suck
and Sony ends with a thud!
good thing sony continues to sell well all through the year
Sony has nothing to do with this article about MS success. Stop trolling.
@rezzah - Yeah, cause there are no Sony fanboys in here trolling...
2 Xbox's later I still wont buy the new slim one. Microsoft is full of crooks.
Take your trolling to geohotz website. PWNED for life your ps3 has.. On topic: i still want MS to give us core gamers more thought when planning content for 360 as if it wasn't for us die hards 360 would hv had it's final RROD.
so then MS has pwned your life? since they dropped you like a sack of bricks?
I am quickly learning this site is full of immature little kids. "2 Xbox's later I still wont buy the new slim one. Microsoft is full of crooks." is what I posted meaning with the topic that is, how is it possible that people still support the 360 the way they do knowing it has had the RROD since day one. Now they decided to release a new system 4 years later instead of fixing the problem earlier? That almost seems like a joke on us. Seriously. I haven't followed the slim yet but I cant imagine them releasing something of quality after they left us high and dry with a problem. I went through 2 360's and i had owned 36 360 games, I supported them 110% but at the time they didnt have the extended warrenty they have now. How can I support a company that didnt support me.
Wow what a day... for the past few days 360 fan boys were in hiding bcuz lbp2 were getting amazing scores...Now 2day they come out of no were bcuz of sony taking a beat down in sales... lol..All u fan boys need a life!!!!!!
I was unaware you could buy shares in solely the PS3 or the 360, I thought you had to buy shares in Microsoft/Sony, of which these consoles aren't even the biggest factors in terms of their success.
Dude, lbp didnt make a great splash on the industry despite its reviews, so why would anyome be hiding from it? Gt5 was the power hitter and it did well. So be happy with that.
yes selling 4.16m copies is such a bad amount of sales for a new I.P right(sarcasm)?? LBP2 will boost the series and it will sell more as Sony actually is advertising it from release day, LBP2 sales will be massive
@Jnuel... You missed the point! Halo games, Killzone 2 and Gears games all kept people interested after it's release and people still talk about them in some form or another. They helped sell systems. LBP 1 did sell a nice amount and was talked about for a few weeks after that, but then it seemed like everyone forgot about it or lost interest! It is/was a very creative game, but it didn't make a lot of people feel like they had to play that game!
games > sales
You have nothing else better to do than troll?!!
Sales =/= GAMES
No. Very well done. Sales = money. You get a golden star on your big forehead
"You get a golden star on your big forehead" LMAO !!!!!!!
Sales = money = profit = investment = new games. You = TEH WRONGZ.
new games = 360 ?
Yes what u are saying is true but at the same time if a company has multiple products under it u can choose to invest more in a product of ur choice.
It's funny how these types of articles attracts all kinds of trolls
Ya, a super casual bang...
So a $100.00 cheaper conosole and 500 million dollar marketing budget for kinect and it only outsold the PS3 by 600,000 in the biggest shopping month of the year? A big majority of these 360 sales where impulse buys from soccer moms who want the hottest toy of the week. My question is, what can MS do this year? They already released the redesigned console, kinect is already out and they only have 2 exclusives while PS3 is ripe for another price drop and they have a slew of AAA exclusives this year.
It doesn't matter what kind of people buy the console. He is selling well, this is what matters.
With ps3 JB like iphone expect it's sales to come to par with 360s.
And publisher support to be like the PSP.
@hALGHASTdRAKE - That was pretty damn pathetic. You sound like a butt hurt fool. Quit it already!
"A big majority of these 360 sales where impulse buys from soccer moms who want the hottest toy of the week." LOL Look at all they different ways Sony fanboys put SPIN on anything Xbox related. Now all of a sudden they just KNOW FOR A FACT who exactly is buying the systems. "Hey I know I'll just say its soccer moms, that HAS to be fact, right?" PLEASE GTFO fanboys we dont need your "Facts" being spread here
A big majority of these 360 sales where impulse buys from soccer moms who want the hottest toy of the week. My question is, what can MS do this year? Easy, if and when sony make the price drop to $199 the 3shitty will follow. M$ will make their system $100 & that is all its worth.
Drop the price?
Well, they did. Dont know if they can keep it up for this year.
The 360 is unstoppable, I just don't see how Sony or Nintendo will ever overcome the runaway train that is MS.
you forgot to put the /s, lol
Call me a fanboy but I just can not comprehend how anyone would buy a 360 over PS3 when it has that many more exclusives coming out. I just don't understand the USA. Don't people like quality games?
Your fanboy eyes are missing all the other game being released this year that are IMO going to be much better than the million PS3 exclusives. The only game for my PS3 that I have pre-ordered is Uncharted, and again IMO it just a good game.
Not everyone buys consoles for the exclusives. I bought a 360 because the majority of my friends are on Live, and I have much more fun playing games with friends than I do on my own.
What games are you talking about rimjob please tell me are you still hoping M$ announces something other than Kinect games at E3/TGS isnt that the same excuses we heard in 2009 "wait till E3, wait till TGS. wait wait wait. I'll bet you that M$ shows more games concerning Kinect and multiplats than exclusive at both shows combined and if I'm wrong I'll leave this website for good. Sony since 2007 has been releasing more and more "real" exclusive games and I don't see them stopping until the release of there next system and if M$ put half the effort of securing exclusives as they do throwing money into timed DLC and advertising into Kinect you might have something to talk about other than console SALES.
@rrjim1 Such as? January is already 2-0 with DCUO and LBP2. Muliplats go both ways, hence their classification, and then Dead Space 2 has exclusive content to boot. Yeah not everyone buys every exclusive, but not everyone spends all year just playing COD either. 2011 is looking a bit lopsided.
The runaway train that is MS? Oh jesus, I have to laugh at some people. Just so sad. xD
Sony fantrolls are scared to death of MS/360/Kinect success....it's hilarious, yet pathetic.
Actually most of us are just confused why it's selling so much. Guess MS likes spending a lot more on marketing than on games. Enjoy playing your sales, I'll go back to playing GT5 and soon LBP2.
I have a question for you. When comes out Gt5? I don't see it in npd of December. Lol,lol,lol,lol,;D
LOOL like I said, enjoy your sales, I'll be thoroughly enjoying my games.
Sony has everything... Blu-ray, Cell processor, AAA exclusives, solid hardware, ultra-precise Move controller, etc. And yet they STILL cannot outsell MS! Maybe Sony doesn't have everything after all??
If having everything means a big slice of the casual market, I say no thanks. Unless they can somehow pull it off and support their core audience at the same time.
lol they did outsell them on yearly sales, but nice spin just basing your figures on holidays alone, ms number is up they literally have no cards left to play
No, people are just stupid.
Amount of money that MS generates makes sure the industry will be happy.
All that money and only 2 exclusives for the year where's all the money going?
So...how many of you actually play it anymore? Lol.
Who gives a fuck about shitbox3shitty sales? Why are u pussies always on this site giving the xcock3shitty a handjob? U will not make a profit from it, u will just stand @ home and jerkoff to kinectaminals! [email protected]!
I'm so sorry for Sony. If things continue to go so bad for Sony, I fear that there will be no PS4 in the future. Besides Sony has not been able to innovate for ten years and these are the consequences
I have to disagree with you on this one. Sony been doing a good job the past year. Now they show they have a strong lineup of games this year. Despite how the Kool-Aid drinking Sony fanboys rant, the 360 has did very well this year. MS always been quiet about their projects. So, chill out until E3 to see what they have. My question will be this...., with all the exclusives Sony giving out this year, what will people say if the 360 sales still remain strong?!
the 360 sales will remain strong because it has the mainstream appeal.
not in canada theres more than enough to go around u can have ours no one wants them sony rules here
360 is seriously... on mad spree... fannies just be silent
