PS3 out sold Xbox 360 by 12-13 times.
was there some sort of exclusive released for PS3 there??
AAACE5  +   1245d ago

OMG... No sh*t? The Ps3 outsold the 360... who would have thought!

You're pitiful man! We all know the 360 doesn't do well in japan, so is that really necessary?

What you should point out is that the Ps3 outsold the Wii! I didn't think the Wii would get beat in japan for a while, but the Ps3 is starting to extend it's user base even further.
Shang-Long  +   1245d ago
this is going to be an interesting year.

will the ps3 pass the 360?

are Wii's numbers going to drop completely?

Does Ms have any trick cards up their sleeves, after an impressive holiday season?

its about to go down
DaTruth  +   1245d ago
When the NPD releases, you think we won't have to hear how much times more the 360 sold 100 more times?

"Lolz, teh 360 sold 1.15 times more than teh PS3, Lolz!"
Death2494  +   1245d ago
@ 299.99
Ps3 outsold 360 by a 13:1 ratio. This is what I'm talking about. Ps3 isn't doing nearly half as bad as in America as 360 is bombing in Japan. While this is all good, let not count out the American market. They proved in the last quarter how much they can root for the home team. We already know that this is pretty much identical to what's going on in EU.

202ht more then 360 am sure that more then makes up for
the slight lead the 360 has in america during the month

id say 4 years since the 4th year ps3 has slowly been outselling the 360

PS3 is also outselling the 360 in Europe, add that and we got ourselves the ps3 outselling 360 for the past 2 or 3 years
Stealth20k  +   1245d ago
PSP – 228,550
PS3 – 218,165
Wii – 189,140
DSi LL – 132,983
DSi – 118,542
Xbox 360 – 16,054
PSP go – 14,853
DS Lite – 12,794
PS2 – 10,430

Not really suprising to sum up

- the go is a flop, but the X000 models are a huge success
- the ds is crushing everything
- ps3 is the leadest selling console
gunnerforlife  +   1245d ago
its only 24 thousand ahead of the psp so its not really crushing its next nearest rival!
Apocalypse Shadow  +   1245d ago
i think you got to look at the go as just another version of psp.you don't see sales amounts for all the other versions.it's just *psp.*you won't see


it's just *PSP*or:

360 core-5000
360 elite-11,054

it's just *360*

all the ds versions are just ds(s).it's not like they do anything different.should be just one number for all.
it should be:


splitting it up just doesn't make sense..
BLACKBOIJONES  +   1245d ago
LOL...The 360 needs david blane magic to help it sell in Japan :D
belal  +   1245d ago
how big is the gap between ps3 and 360 ww? can someone calculate how much longer it will take for the ps3 to take over 360?
gunnerforlife  +   1245d ago
199 is all that it will take 2 bury it into 3rd place
HungryGoku  +   1245d ago
Doesn't need a price cut to bury it.
adamx  +   1245d ago
ps3 is already ahead of 360 if you factor in units still working.
Alpha_Gamer  +   1245d ago
Nobody can know for sure I`m afraid.

But I would say by the end of this year would be likely. I`d have a much better idea at the next quarterly reports because no one really knows how the consoles have been selling worldwide this year. It depends on how long the Kinect boost lasts. Because lets be realistic, Kinect saved the PS3 from closing the gap even more last quarter, so if that boost lasts, it may take longer than expected.
emil1  +   1245d ago
so the gap was 3 million ending december 2010,. now is 2.8 million without US and EU
Belasco  +   1245d ago
So what will change when the Ps3 does take the lead world wide? Better yet, why do any of you care?
Ninver  +   1245d ago
Nobody gets anything. It just shows fanboys need to accept the inevitable. Sony didn't outperform their previous competition by fluking it two consecutive times. The Sony brand is still the most preferred brand to consumers.
Seferoth75  +   1245d ago
LOl PS3 has like 40 million to go before it takes the WW lead.

@Dirty Beaver. LOL sure kid. That's why Nintendo beats them in console sales and portable console sales right cause PS3 is the preferred brand in last place.

It must suck to have to ignore reality in order to say something good about your company
Ninver  +   1245d ago
Same outcome different day. The 360's NA figures are void by Japan sales. Then Sony dominates further worldwide.
Belasco  +   1245d ago
Guess what? It will not shatter my world if the Ps3 pulls ahead, im being totally honest here. I own both, but the 360 overall gets more playtime. Just my preference, nothing less, nothing more.
Death2494  +   1245d ago
This isn't about anyone's....
world being shattered. It's ultimately about having all those people who talk so much crap about ps3, finally eat crow. First it was the whole "why a blu-ray drive" argument. Sony quieted all critics when they won the format war. Then the "no games" argument came in, until Metal Gear Solid 4. Then the whole " 360 is more powerful" argument, until Killzone2 debuted. Now it's down to the LTD sales which is where their making their last stand. Sony will breach those fanboy walls and dethrone those who sit high on their 360 pedestal. I won't disagree with you because what you say I very true. Just offering some insight on why there is a debate on sales.
cobpswii3600  +   1245d ago
Yea? And I used my 360 so little, I sold the damn thing. It's like staring into a pool or mediocrity.

@Topic: Not surprising at all...
El_Assenso  +   1245d ago
Death 2494 hits the nail on the head, what goes around usually comes around.
Death2494  +   1245d ago
Preaching to the Choir
I've been saying this for years. If things continue as they are now, Sony won't feel the need to drop the price until E3. People thing Microsoft outsold Sony last holiday season. America had alot to do with that and even then they only broke even with Sony.
Q1 2010 700k
Q2 2010 900k
Q3 2010 700k
Q4 2010 both sold 6.3 million WW
Now let's say this trend continues with the minimum being 700k
Q1-Q4 2011 700k = 2.8 million
El_Assenso  +   1245d ago
Yep! A price drop to 199 and all heck will break loose. 199 + Uncharted 3, now that would be some holiday season combo!!

lol, Kinect failed hard in Japan. I thought, japan is more casual orientated.
cereal_killa  +   1245d ago
Japan also likes products that are reliable and work.
kickerz  +   1245d ago
good article Belasco.. I agree wit it.
Clarence  +   1245d ago
Anybody ever notice that vgchartz always subtracts from the japanese ps3 numbers and adds to the 360 numbers.

media create hardware
PSP – 30,475
PS3 – 23,846
Wii – 14,972
DSi LL – 11,555
DSi – 9,954
Xbox 360 – 2,282

Vgchartz numbers
PSP 28,207
DS 25,485
PS3 22,748
Wii 16,034
X360 2,314
PS2 1,579
They do this every week. They got caught doing the same thing with Europen numbers.
Seferoth75  +   1245d ago
Oh no their 360 estimate was off by 32 consoles.. damn those fanboys and their inflated numbers.... what an idiot. Estimate kid. Look that word up in a dictionary please. Or have a parent read it for you and explain what it means.
Clarence  +   1245d ago
Yeah thats crazy. Imagine them doing that every week, every month, every year. They use to do it for Europe numbers but got caught. Then they had to adjust those numbers because of it. Which is why so many people thought the 360 was further ahead than it really was. Yeah not a big deal though.
MeNoRasta  +   1245d ago
I cant believe these numbers anymore.
One minute the xbox is out selling the ps3 and now the ps3 is out selling xbox.I think fanboys make up numbers and try to make them official.
