According to data compiled by HULIQ News, Sony’s PlayStation 3 was the best-selling console in February 2011 – data that should be backed up by the coming NPD Group report for the month, due in mid-March.
Good job Killzone 3 bundle
The Killzone 3 bundle is such an awesome deal. I saw a few today at the store, and wanted to buy another PS3 just cause.
I never heard of this site but its still more creditable than vgchartz.
Until we have OFFICIAL NUMBERS, I'll remain optimistic that this is true. In the mean time I'm treating all predictions as I would VGChahahaha... em... well lets just say grains of salt add up fast.
There is no way NPD will say PS3 sold more units than the other 2 consoles. 360 will lead the group.
I guess I'll write it: the US =/= the world. amirite?
It's so funny to see people write that whenever the Xbox 360 is seen as the "winner", but as soon as it brings good news for the PlayStation 3 it doesn't matter.
because usually the 360 sells better in the usa, but worse than ps3 worldwide. if ps3 takes usa itll get worldwide too
Yeah, because x360 outsells ps3 in the US (i think britan too?) PS3 usually outsells the 360, worldwide. If PS3 outsold x360 in the US, then it's obviously gonna outsell the 360 worldwide.
Thats because Europe are trying to get it as much as they can before the 10 day ban ;P
Wait for it...
lol,what? Vg charts has more credibility than this pointless site.
An estimate of 350,000? Just think, if my mom hadn't been at woodstock, there would have only been 199,999 people there...
I thought for a moment it was VG Charts. "The depth and breadth of HULIQ’s data base is far smaller than the resources at the NPD Group’s disposal, so getting into hard numbers will be a trickier proposition. " I stopped reading at that point.
wow so the ps3 is outselling the 360 in all 3 regions this month............coolness and that 10 day ban only applied to holland. SOny has been shipping to every other country in europe.
I wondered about that as well, and it seems that the point of import IS the Netherlands, so if the PS3's never make through customs in Holland, they never make to the rest of Europe as well. And we are on day three of the injunction, and Sony hasn't said didly squat about it yet, so LG will probably get an extension.
Wake up and smell the Starbucks.....PS3 is awesome :)
Isnt NPD the USA? Thats why i dont fully trust this info.
I need a reliable worldwide monthly sales agency, NDP is all US and vgchartz can't be trusted as valid.
To begin with, I am a PS3 and Xbox 360 owner. I love both consoles equally and have put a LOT of money into each console. So, I'm not a "fanboy." I'm a gamer. But Microsoft has dropped the ball on exciting gamers with what's to come in 2011. Major Nelson even recently twitted that Microsoft wouldn't have anymore game reveals till E3, in June! That's ridiculous! While Sony has already gotten the ball rolling with a few exclusive releases (LBP2, Killzone 3, etc) and has gamers excited with whats to come (Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3, etc). So, it makes perfect sense for PS3 sales to increase, because it's clearly offering gamers MORE at this point. More so, I'm about to buy my 2ND PS3 - mainly cause it's a great blu-ray player and I want one for the bedroom. I'm hoping Microsoft turns things around - I'm sooo close to that 100K gamerscore, but right now, Gears Of War 3 is the ONLY exclusive game I'm looking forward to on that console.
people are finally catching on that this is the year for great ps3 exclusives.
who is HULIQ?
Not gonna happen. Sorry, not even close.
