Xbox 360 is now selling better than the PS2 did

The PS2 has always been the darling of the industry with sales now well over 100 million and it still selling well across the globe, especially in the emerging economies.

However VGChartz has been crunching some numbers and has come up with a surprising situation, the Xbox 360 is selling far better now than the PS2 was at this point in it’s life cycle (In the US). (PS2, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

DualConsoleOwner  +   1850d ago | Well said
Actually its wrong numbers. proven by NPD.
VGchart stated that Xbox 360 sold 2.4 million units in US December.

however, NPD said that it only sold 1.8 million units in December.

meaning, VGcahrt is OVER TRACKING AGAIN

you can't count broken console. that's cheating.
and VGchart.

it's a marathon not a sprint.

will the 360 reach 100mil mark?

base on the data it'll take the xbox another 5 years to sell another 50mil units.

it's doubtable.

"Gonna be hard with almost all multiplatform games."

Apparently not to hard (trouncing PS3 in USA)even though last year 360 put out either equal or more exclusives throughout the year. This year might turn out in 360's favor as well come E3 so will be interesting to follow.
siyrobbo  +   1850d ago
the 360 practically spent the last few years dependant on 3rd party, hasn't done it any harm
Soldierone  +   1850d ago
How can you say that? It hasn't done severe harm because Sony has prounced on it till this year (2011). Last year Sony started it, and look PS3 sales went way up. Now this year they are firing their guns and releasing what 13 exclusive titles confirmed with several more depending? You honestly think that won't do any harm?

If MS wants it to beat PS2 then they have to pull the same cards out of their hand to do so. Running a platform on titles that are availible elsehwere with nothing special about yours isn't gonna get you to PS3 rankings. Timed exclusive COD content will only push you so far. Sony just has to market MOH the same way, get content to that, and watch Activision release another broken Black Ops title, then bam where do all the FPS fans go?

@ shoddy
Even so, the 360 would have to sell an additional 50 million to catch up with the PS2. I don't see that happening. The PS2 is at 147 million as of November of last year. That's a lot! I don't see this record being broken anytime soon. Well, unless you count the DS, which they'll probably manage in the next year.

LOL, give or take 100 Million consoles.
The 360 gets a short-term boost from Kinect and we get this.

"It can if MS still supports it the way SOny did with the PS2"
When the Kinect-2.0-Box launches, they will drop the 360 like a brick, just like Xbox original.

Well theres just a couple points I want to make. One, the industry is a lot larger now, than 10 years ago time, so consoles reaching 'benchmarks' that previous consoles did in the same amount of time is...redundant. In 30 years time I'm sure every console will push well over 500+ million if not far far more by then.

And secondly, at five years into the ps2's life span, it was hitting it's 'stride'. Where they started to get tons, upon tons of quality games coming out, a lot of which were exclusive to the system, AND the competition for the ps2 was by this point, obviously never going to catch the ps2.

And thirdly, if you truly want the same scenario applied to another console, it would have to be the ps3, which in it's fifth year is hitting it's stride in the exact same way as the quality. Yes the ps3 has much, much more stiff competition than the ps2 ever did, and yet if you look at the ps3 numbers, (world wide) the ps3 has been selling absolutely amazingly, and again everyone, it did come out a year after the 360, and this article is usa only.

1. its vg chartz =?

2. the ps3 has been doing this since launch. finally, good job 360!

3. Subtract the 33% failure rate and it brings the 360 to around 35m 'sold'...or on shelves/warehouses. ps2 was being played in homes not rrod on a shelf or warehouse. big difference.

cant wait for the next halo!

to all the "first party studio" idiots the mighty ps1 didnt really have many of those either, and that never hurt it.

it's different now for sony because they have purchased many first partys, in their attempt to monopolise the industry.

but im sorry fanboys, even with the 7 or 8 exclusives i will buy for my ps3 in 2011, i will still buy games more games for my 360....funny that

A good game is a good game. I am tired of ignorant people acting like exclusives have some magical quality that makes them better than everything else. In reality there are far more multiplats I love this gen than exclusives. I am not saying exclusives are bad, just that many of them are way overhyped and not as good as many multiplats.

There's no way that the 360 will ever break the 140+ million record. Never. Back in 2007 there were already 120 million ps2s in people's homes. So I'm guessing there's probably like 150/160 million ps2 out there right now.

Please explain to an non American?

gamer2010  +   1849d ago
You sound like the typical America basher. Lame.

But I'll answer you anyway.

The 360 never had a 54% failure rate.

Nope, I have only ever owned one 360. Nobody that I know has bought more than one either.

Yes, there are some great exclusives that I love such as Halo Reach, Alan Wake, Lost Odyssey, Fable 3, Gears of War 1 and 2, to name a few.

The dvd player has done just fine. I don't use it to play movies, but it has worked fine for games. I think I have played maybe 3 games that were multidisc and it didn't bother me at all.

I would prefer not to have to pay for Xbox Live just as I would prefer not to have to pay for my games, but in the end it is still the best online service I have used and I enjoy it enough to pay the $50 a year.

Disk scratching...never experienced it. You have to be pretty stupid to think you can move your console while the disc is spinning inside.

My 360 isn't that much louder than my PS3.

The 360 has some great exclusives, performs the best out of the consoles on multiplatform games and has a great interface and online service. Those are the reasons I like it.

Now, if you want to know why a "dumb American" like me enjoys his PS3, feel free to ask and I will gladly answer.
Patrick  +   1849d ago
I dont know how to answer your question cause I myself dont get why people buy the 360 over the PS3. But I can tell you why my brother in law bought his 360...or why he has one. It was a RROD console that his nephew had and he bought a new one and gave the RROD console to my Brother in law and he sent it back to MS for repair. He tells me all the time I need to support the AMERICAN company and not the other two. So some people here unfortunately are just biased no matter how bad the product is... I however have to see quality which for me the PS3 has alot more of.

I myself owned an original xbox and loved it, but just not so much with the 360. I refuse to pay to play online which should be free since I pay for online already, I would constantly worry about it up and dying on me(just like buying a pet hamster, its probably only gonna give you a year maybe two before its kills over and you have to replace it with another that looks just like it, so why bother)and all the multiplats i have played on PS3 do fine and the exclusives are outstanding and end up being for the most part, the best on the market.. Some day i may buy a 360... just not yet.

Oh and as far as the PS3 being as loud as the 360... um no, not even close, I have had my 60gb (with backwards compatibility) since launch and its still whisper quiet.. so, thats false unless yours is so dusty its having to work harder to cool itself.

In the US though NOT worldwide we all know the people in the US buy it because its a home made product over PS3 not because its a better/more value product.
Patrick  +   1849d ago
Honestly yes, SOME Americans (not all) would see "American based Company" Microsoft as being an advantage over a Japanese based company Sony, even though Sony is actually much better quality. Oh and 360 is cheaper... that helps alot, some of us would rather pay less and get less quality just because we are saving money. lol.. I think if the PS3 and 360 were both the SAME price, like if the PS3 was $199 and $299 like the 360, the PS3 would be doing much better here. Most people I have spoken to that have a 360 its because its cheaper and thats the only reason they bought it, even though they admit the PS3 is the one they wanted.

BS. I did not buy my 360 because it was cheaper! I do not know any one who did. People are not buy 360 because it is made in America. People in US buy more foreign made products than any where else in the world, including Sony's. The ps2 sold mor in the US and anywhere else in the world. The wii sold 50Mil out out the 80Mil to US to US customers alone.

You people like to make up all kinds of excuses for PS3 getting smaked around by 360 this gen. When PS3 launched it didn't even have and online plan. 360 gained a lot of traction, because Xbox Live was so much better than PSN; Some people prefer the controller especially for FPS; There are many on PSN who still don't use headsets.

360 is leading in the UK also. So are they buying 360 to support America?

There is a lot of anti-america blable on this site, and it mostly come from the PS3 side. You guys are so caught up in your love for your PS3 that it has devoid you of any rational thinking. PS3 must be your only girl friend, Vherostar.
Ashby_JC  +   1849d ago
So HOW is the Wii selling like crazy in the US?

And HOW was the PS2 Crushing the competition last gen?

The reason the 360 is selling well in the US is simple. It released before the PS3. Alot of consumers who most likely wouldnt have gotten the system ended up getting one.

Its a snowball effect. You see all your friends have you end up getting one. By the time the PS3 released the price was so high...alot of ppl including myself refused to buy.

Things have changed as the price dropped more ppl jumped on the PS3...myself included.

The PS3 being the better more valued product is subjective.

In the year + that I have owned the PS3. I have played almost all the top games on it. And you know what...the MOST played game I play...BFBC 2 and MAG (a game that some PS3 owners I know never even heard of!!!)

So I MYSELF did not buy a 360 because it was made by an US company!

IN THE US. Xbox brand have always been catered mainly to the US market while PlayStation aimed the Europe and rest of the world. It's not a surprise. Just ask a couple of kids and teenagers what they want most. You're probably gonna get "Xbox/Xbox 360" as the answer in the US.

Playstation isnt "aimed" at Europe or the rest of the world. Its just that Sony isnt as succesful in the US like they were with the PS and PS2.

The PS2 wasnt more "americanized" than the PS3. On the contrary I would even say, jrpg's for instance have disappeared in the favor of the likes of the Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dragons Age etc.

Its not targeted at Europe, its just selling better there because SCEE is good at marketing there and Sony has focused companies there. Meanwhile MS is American based an only know how to control the NA region, thus better sales since they are actually focused. If Sony were to focus in NA and only NA then MS wouldnt be winning by so much.

The blu ray comment was just all around stupid.

'PS2 150 MILLION, That's right Sony has made enough PS2's for 1 in EVERY 20 people IN THE WORLD!'

If using 150 million as a rounded up figure, more like approximately 1 in 40 (6 billion people in the world)- sold that is. Still the greatest selling console ever.
Bearing in mind that a typical household might have 3 people in it who only need 1 console , it seems a really impressive figure.

And your point is? Ps2 is well over a 100 million units sold I highly doubt the 360 or any xbox machine ill reach that milestone specially if its mainly succeeding in one major market.

vulcanproject  +   1850d ago
Even for the wii it is going to be difficult to overtake all time PS2 sales, i would say this only because when wii arrived it was technically already dated hardware wise, and PS2 was not. I find it unlikely nintendo will continue support for as long as sony have with PS2, if people are starting to think wii looks really dated now then imagine how it'll feel in another two or three years when a further generation hits.

Wii has managed a huge lead because of its cheap price and casual appeal but microsoft and sony are looking to turn up the heat as they try and cash in on casuals and the cost of their more advanced machines plummets.

This is really why i feel PS2's all time record will survive for a fair bit yet

Wii will have to sell at the rate is is for the next 5 years to surpass PS2's sales cleanly. I dont really believe it possible, although this generation has/will be longer than usual helping wii's cause. What with Microsoft and sony now looking to get in on the act, eventually pricing their machines closer to wii and then introducing a whole new generation nintendo will surely look to update the wii concept inside the next 2 years as well.

Nintendo have a sure fire 100m+ sale machine on their hands, but i genuinely doubt its longevity. If it has surpassed PS2 sales by 2015 i will be surprised, because i think it'll be marginalised.

The Wii is actually on pace to pass the PS2 if it continues its pace. Like I said. It should be interesting if the Wii drops its price. Its the only console this generation that has had only ONE price drop.

The problem is is, if you're comparing "sales of a console at the same point of it's lifetime on the market", while you may be able to say "We're selling better than the PS2 at this point of it's lifetime", you also have to accept the situation where "the PS3 is selling better WORLDWIDE than the 360 at that point of it's lifetime", too.

PS3 from November 2006 to Jan 2011 (51 months on market) - 46,583,290 (vgchartz)
360 from November 2005 to Jan 2010 (51 months on market) - 36,958,256 (vgchartz)

Numbers for america only, same dates, 360 - 21,311,266, PS3 - 18,307,113, only 3 million behind, in a country that has long been regarded as Xbox biased, too.

This is because there is usually a five year time frame before the new generation, so this year 5 years ago the new generation started, meaning the ps2 was going to see a decline in sales. BUT This time around the new generation hasn't started. So you can't really compare

I said it before and I will say it again and again and again and again.... "When you start talking sales, you are talking Desperation". Silly Xbox fanboys sales are for Wii's. That's their excuse for inferiority.

I say "When you start talking about people talking about sales, you are talking Desperation".

and I say you just sound like a spin doctor and of course I can counter with another spin and it can keep going and going and going but I will let you play this one by yourself. I hold true to the original statement. You can have all the spin-off versions as your own.

I was thinking here, i will rarely use my 360 this s year with the lack of games, maybe i should sell it and get a PS3. I won't be happy with only Gears,Forza, and Kinect games.
Ashby_JC  +   1849d ago no sport titles are coming for the 360?

I ususlly get NBA2k....thats not coming out for the 360?

What about Red Faction Armegeddon...really liked the last one.

Ohh isnt Dead Space 2 dropping in a few weeks...let me check again..I could have sworn they had it listed for the 360.

I never played Test Drive....that was on the 360 isnt the second one coming out next month...Ill check and see if that is still coming out for the 360 they may have canceled it or something.

Fight Night Champion
Deus Ex

Just a few games that are coming out for the 360 AND PS3...

So your selling your 360...really?? WHY? I get really tired of comments making it like Muliplats somehow dont COUNT.

When we all know by years end the list of exclusives will shrink on one system and expand on the other.

I own BOTH systems...enjoy gaming. I wish ppl on this site did more of that instead of arguing back and forth.

lol I don't think 360 will ever reach ps2 sales, If any console this gen has the chance to outsell the ps2 it's the wii
MrBeatdown  +   1850d ago
This is news?

In a year that saw a redesigned 360 system and Kinect, it barely outsold the PS2 during the same point in it's lifespan? Wow, what a victory. Of course, during this point in it's lifespan, the PS2 had already sold far more, it was competing with the Xbox and GameCube, the 360 had already launched, and the PS3 and Wii were releasing soon, but who needs silly facts like that when you got a nice article to rile up the fanboys?

The only thing this means is that this generation is longer than previous generations, and we all knew that was the case years ago.

What I find interesting in this chart isn't that the 360 barely overtook the ps2 in sales at this point in its lifespan, but its the only console that shows an upward trend in sales, and not downward.
alb1899  +   1850d ago
If kinect comes this year with new impressive things and they make 5 or 6 good new exclusives hard core......... it can be done.
Theonik  +   1850d ago
3 points where this comparison is pointless.
1. VgChartz numbers are terrible and NPD has dis-proven their December figures.
2. When doing a comparison like the article is doing on has to point out that 5+ years into last gen we were already seeing next gen systems. Comparing sales on an ongoing console gen Vs that generation's decline is unfair and sais a lot on its own if the 360's alegedly greatest sales period ever can't even match the PS2 in its decline.
3. US!=World. Hell at around 2004 i think even the original Xbox that had terrible worldwide sales did quite good and i think was outselling PS2 for a period. (someone may confirm or deny that as i'm not sure and am curious myself)
BrianC6234  +   1850d ago
This is too funny. The PS2 didn't need to be replaced every year or two. I still use my old fat PS2 I bought on day one. I wonder how many 360's the average 360 gamer has bought?
Seferoth75  +   1849d ago
Probably not as many as the average PS2 owner did. YOu know since Sony had to be sued to fix it and MS did it out of their own pocket.

Oh but please continue to show you bias by hating on MS for doing more for their gamers than Sony did. As much as I dislike MS at least THEY paid the bill for repairs of the 360 and didnt charge people like Sony did with the PS2
x5exotic  +   1849d ago
doing more for their games? lol the only thing they need to do is make a decent game

i never changed my ps2....but many people i know had their 360 fked...(many of which didnt bother getting a new 1 and "changed" to sony or even wii xD
Theonik  +   1849d ago
Excuse me what? The only reason that MS offered the extended warranty for the 360 was because they were facing a class action lawsuit and were threatened with a recall of the 360 hardware.

I replaced my PS2 once... was well know for drive failers.
