Analyst Jesse Divnich believes that Nintendo's Wii will be the top-selling console, moving approximately 485,000 units despite the release of Halo 3. Microsoft's Xbox 360 sales will be close, however, at an estimated 423,000 units sold.
Ps3 just outsold xbox 360 in Europe 2:1.In japan 5:1.
I dont care about analysts they are never right.
europe for one week, but if u take in account american sales diff for the month the ps3 still isnt outselling it by worldwide numbers, japan sales for the ps3 are better but there only at 50,000 a month, europe is not much higher and america is around 120,000, so u include the 400,000 + for america for the 360, around 40-60,000 for europe and 4-7,000 for japan, the ps3 is not catching up its going further behind
why doesn't anyone mention us aussies? pity we're such a small market. prob less then 5% of our 22 mil population has a next gen console.
Price was the reason PS3 was slow selling, the new SKU or price drops hav'nt happened yet in US. Motorstorm which is a exclusive game proves otherwise, when it come too exclusives selling PS3 hardware.
Makes perfect sense. PS3 exclusives just aren't near AAA yet.
people just wait for 40GB SKU. =)
Just look at the numbers...Heavenly Sword, Lair, and Madden 08' completely bombed in worldwide sales. Now I understand why companies like Capcom are taking their franchises elsewhere.
Lair didn't sell very well but I believe Heavenly Sword was a top seller in many European markets. As for Madden, all versions of Madden 08 bomb in the world because almost no one outside North America is much interested in them.
Yeah true about Madden but it easily hit a million sales on the 360 while the ps3 is struggling with app. 300k. Last I checked Heavenly Sword was around 200k. That is pretty pathetic for a "top-notch" title.
Sony just isnt producing good games so nobody is going to buy them you cant expect people to buy garbage and enjoy them.
Flop after flop after flop we know why everyone is now developing on the 360 with hit after hit after hit and a huge attach rate
Lair hasn't even been released in Europe.
Havenly Sword has sold decently, and that will pick up over the next months with the advertising.
I aint a fanboy, but you XBots are running short of things to say.
DiRT - 55,715
Blue Dragon - 59,791
Eternal Sonata - 43,199
Project Gotham 4 - 90,113
i wouldn`t call that omg sales.
x360 users don`t care about good games.
only action games and FPS are selling good on x360.
Halo 3 - 2,634,108
Stranglehold - 164,119
MoH: Airborne - 141,457
Bioshock - 397,213
Two Worlds - 112,283
The Darkness - 118,818
only about fps and action games.
.....these articles. Just taunting with fanboys emotions. Seriously people take all this stuff a little too seriously. Does it really matter whos console sells more, if you really enjoy the console you own then who really cares. I own a 360 and a PS3, i think both are great, if the PS3 starts outselling 360 does that mean suddenly everyone is going to stop buying them (360) no of course not, likewise with the PS3. The games are what matters, i really do think that this generation will be pretty even, all consoles are going to have their AAA titles and all consoles have multiplatform titles so its all just a matter of taste. The PS3, 360 and Wii will all be here for quite alot longer, which means more amazing games as time goes on, lets all just enjoy it. Way too much hate on this site.
I understand what you're saying but the fact is everyone doesn't have the money to buy every console on the market, I do but I choose to make an educated decision on what I buy. I would rather save $600 for games rather than buying a PS3 that has no AAA titles, no unified Online service, and have not delivered on 1 promise. The Wii is last gen gaming with a new controller that I wouldn't use for every game like they are making us do.
When I try a game I'll use one of my friends console to see if the PS3 or Wii has 1 game thats worth the price of a new console.
The #'s show exactly what I'm talking about, PS3 doesn't have 1 AAA game (RFOM) came close, but its just average, the Wii and their mini games don't sell to the hardcore.
but for a system that has no AAA titles it has sold good so far. so imagine when the bombs drop
@ otherZinc - good post, bubbles 4U, my sentiments exactly:
"I understand what you're saying but the fact is everyone doesn't have the money to buy every console on the market, I do but I choose to make an educated decision on what I buy.

Exactly. I can easily not only afford a pS3, I have already owned one & eBayed it 5 or 6 months ago because of the serious lack of games, didn't like SixAxis or the PS3 controller, no rumble, no achievements, no content on PSN compared to my 360, none of my PS2 gaming friends even own one, & the fact you mentioned that Sony has "not delivered on 1 promise". And all of that happened before all the game delays (that still continue to this day) & poor multiplats started appearing on Sony's 'allpowerful' cell. I don't care about BluRay either, I wanted a gaming console.
@ AngryHippo: I agree:
"Way too much hate on this site."
-i remember people like you saying "Imagine when the PS3 drops" now it's the games....What's next "imagine when the Ps4 Drops".
-Fanboy say the Ps3 sells without games, then some will say it has games and there is no more waiting.
-Another one from Jandre below "Just wait the good exclusives aren't out" so that means LAIR, HS and WARHAWK is crap since they are not even GOOD.
just face it , until the ps3 actually does something like overtake the wii and 360, i keep hearing the same thing over and over...
just wait you'll see..
i think that since its so close to christmas that people arent gonna rush out to get one just yet. i know a lot of people that want one so as soon as the shopping season gets here I look foward to a massive war of the consoles. ill just set back and watch since i have both systems.
I hate you people can make these articles without any real responses. God damnit if i see another post or article about PS3 games before november im going to smack the writer.
We should make a website that shows quotes from these fanboys like Zhuk, Mart, and Gabe Newell lol.
Their dumbass comments could be viewed up there forever while the Xbox360 sells less than 20,000,000 lifetime just like everyone thought it would.
Why the hell does anyone buy a 360? I couldt understand before b/c of Halo, but since Mass Effect isnt going to stay exclusive, Bungie doesnt even work for MSFT anymore, and all the best upcoming exclusives are PS3 only i dont even get it.
Devs, experts, everyone says the PS3 is more powerful, and it allows for more space. Why pay almost the same price for a dying console with a fraction of the features, and charges you for online?
Mass Effect--Mass Effect(lol)
Now for you dumbass xbots keep wasting your money on a dying console, I laugh at that. But you undecided people, the Xbox360 was a good alternative while the PS3 was getting their stuff together.
The PS3 is flat out better. The exclusives arent even possible on the Xbox. Unless your so impatient that blowing 400+ (online) is ok so you can play games NOW, its not worth buying an Xbox360. Best idea would be to keep waiting, and see if the PS3 titles next month perform on that higher level.
whos the idiot that said sony hasnt delivered on one promise? Graphics? ha, dont make me laugh, they have produced graphics on ps3 better than the e3 2005 presentation, so what promises?
Here are just a few, some old, some new:
http://www.digitalbattle.co... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://midwestgeek.blogspot...
"Let's take a *brief* look at how Sony treats consumers:
Paying people to advertise their PSP through graffiti, puting programs in music files that make systems at risk of viruses, claiming CG trailers are gameplay footage, phasing out the 60gb model & denying it, supposed PS3 "pricecut" = downgrade of internal components, all their games will be running at 1080p, the console race starts when they say it does, a Trojan Horse named BluRay, the cell processor, useless specs, DLC is a thing of the past, There will be 2 million PS3s at launch, the U.S. launch date, the European Launch date, Jack Trentton: "The DS is trailing the PSP", ... Sony philosophy: Wait for Nintendo to do it and then Double it: Analog Stick? Dual Analogs! Rumble? Dual Shock!, Wii-mote ? Six Axis ! ... do I need to go on because this list is ENDLESS."
Wii wont stop till nintendo brings out a new console. People will try to call it a fad just like they did with DS but its following exactly the same path of success
"claiming CG trailers are gameplay footage"
this was never the case with the ps3 after febuary, all that was on ps3 has been all prerendered and cg on the ps3, and in realtime, even in e3 2005, the cell makes that enabled, becuase cell is the chip that sony uses in their movies to make their movies, in other words, cg on ps3 IS realtime, get it straight
Dude it can happen only in your dreams :) Take care of your mind get a break in this console war - just go play something becouse your words are total BS.
.....what?! I think i know what you are trying to say......uh actually nope after reading through your post again, it makes absolutely no sense to me. I think that was an attempt at being a lame ass fanboy on your part.
PS3 = great console but PS3 fanboys are f-ing [email protected] Xbox 360 = great console but Xbox 360 fanboys are f-ing [email protected]
I HATE F-ING FANBOYS AND GRAPHICS WHORES
Damn, that is ownage!
That guy is dreaming, that e3 Killzone vid was fantastic and the recent showing of game play footage of Killzone2 looks nothing remotely close to that video, nothing at all.
Also, this shows why you cant trust reviewers, because some of them said, "wow SONY did it, they made the goal of the target e3 video" Shoe said "no it didnt". This is why I wait to play everything PS3 myself.
.....have a bubble. I don't trust reviews any more regarding any game, it all comes down to individual taste. Thank god for free downloadable demos this generation, it helps a treat.
Really now i didn't know that, and how exactly can crap move it's self?
Makes perfect sense. PS3 exclusives just aren't near AAA yet.
P.S Their not even near AA dude lol
iceman is on that meth, and i get 4 dissagrees for the truth
Couple of things that made me skeptical of this article
1)This is an analyst
2)I saw the word Estimate 6 times in this article.
3)"Gamers, developers, and investors trade stock on the simExchange market to predict how well games will sell. Unit sales forecasts are taken from this trading, not from an individual analyst employing conventional means of forecasting."
All of this leads me to say one simple word:Speculation
