Canadian NPD sales for September via Neogaf.
Pretty much expected. The trend in Canada is a lot like the United States.
My prediction for the US NPD, really good for XBOX 360 and really bad for PS3. Perhaps even worse than VG charts.
Wow, 360 outsold everything in Canada. 360 outsold the ps3 3-1.
40k diff between 360 and ps3, ouch, probs 300k diff when it comes to the us figures to
because of the 3 NHL 08 platforms in the top10 games for the month.
we love our hockey, what can i say?
51.2k 360's is a ton.
i was one of those NHL 08 buyers :D:D:D
am i the only one that plays baseball in this canada =/
Sony has work to do and only themselfs to blame. They dropped the price and good things happen like in Europe. It's still the most expensive console.
The more they get ass kicked, the more they get their heads on straight. So instead you should praise this ass kicking if you can.
you got some SENSE in you, boy. My, my.
I mean its not like there was a third Halo released to help boost 360 sales, right? Seriously though, your theory does make some sense. Last gen Microsoft got their a**es personally hand delivered to them by Mr. Kutaragi and this generation they seem to have their game plan (and wallet) somewhat together. However, since Mr. Kutaragi has left Sony I guess you xbots will have to settle for Phil Harrison to make the delayed (no pun intended) delivery this generation.
I ain't worried 'bout a thang.I knew what I was getting when I got a PS3 and I'm happy with it.The PS3 and the PSP are simply beautiful together and I'm blinded by the shine of potential I see.
Xbox 360 = 51.2K
PS3 = 15.6K
Xbox 360 sales are over 3 to 1 when compared to PS3 sales in Canada according to the official numbers. I expect the same results in the American official numbers.
enough beating around the bush! We got European sales, Japan sales, hell even CANADIAN sales (no offense). Where's the US sales, man.
Give me. I want to see it.
You hear that, next week? Yeah, you. Hurry the $#@! up.
Aright. Well, in that case: Yo, tomorrow? Yeah, you. Hurry the #$@! up.
I think Global NPD results come out in the last week of each month.
is due tomorrow (Thursday), October 18...at 6:00 p.m. EST...it will cover a 5 week period from September 2 to October 6...
Just x10 all those number and you will roughly get the US numbers..
canada 30 million people USA 300 million
my friend- that simply will not DO. I want to SEE those numbers, with my own eyes. Not extrapolate Canadian figures.
I have to admit, I'm rather excited to see how the price cut impact of the PS3 on a long-term basis so the October and November NPD sales figures will be especially interesting.
Considering that, the expected sub-standard (low) hardware sales it has had in September, considering its previous price point and the excellent value of Xbox 360 (with Halo 3) I find these figures rather underwhelming and in comparison, not indicative of the presence of these consoles in their respected territories.
I think people were surprised the affect the price drop had, in just 3 days, in Europe with the PS3 selling that recently released weekly figure. I'm sure we'll see a similar impact globally once North America gets its price cut + bundles.
I'm just saying, using September NPD numbers, which are expected to be very positive for Microsoft, as a derogative tool against the PS3 is not really justified considering that we all know the console is selling well at this moment. Naturally, for the total and overall sales it is relevant but before anyone disagrees, I said " ... as a derogative tool against the PS3 is not really justified" e.g. PS3 is dead chants.
don't be such a party pooper. We all know that September sales do not equal sales for the rest of 2007.
However, as of now, it is SEPTEMBER sales that are to be released. Not October. So, as of now, we must just accept the hard data we receive and leave it at that.
When October NPD arrives, we will salivate (or cry) over the numbers just as heavily as we will September's. Don't try to stop us. You can't, N4G has gone nuts!
I was merely making the point that any attempts to use the September figures for the opinion that "ps3 is dead" will not be justified.
but no one (thus far) has done so in this post. Relax, man. Everything is just fine. I'm just saying- Let's focus on SEPTEMBER NPD when it comes out and we'll focus on October NPD when it comes out.
Your right, though. These September NPD charts are not indicative of the PS3 "losing its footing". Instead, It merely shows the 360 picking up traction.
and x360 had no nextgen rivals for 1 year and also had AA game geow by that time.
now PS3 with rivals, and with start in europe by the end of march, for first week of october sold around 5 mln. consoles worldwide.
it`s still has 2 month to get 1 mln. worlwide.
+ AA games like Ratchet and Uncharted have not been released yet.
+ Same goes for GT5:prologue.
+ Also Haze might have some potential, and we shouldn`t forget UT3. =)
well the ps3 is coming up to a year and its only sold 5mill,
even if you don`t like them.
i`m just saying, that there is nothing special about sales for now. The most interesting part will be when npd data comes in January 08.
i just know, that this last week ps3 made around 125k consoles worldwide, multitype it with 4, and it`s 500k in month. And with coming Ratchet, Uncharted, Haze, CoD4(free online), AC in october-november, this number might only increase.
Unless people choice to get new x360 instead of ps3 to play Mass Effect and CoD4(pay for online) + AC.
the 360 sold 500k systems last month in america alone, times that by 12, we should get the ammount of systems sold this year. See it doesn't work, you cant just assign arbitrary values and do some math, then justify your answer.
The ps3 sales will go down again next week, they're high right now because the 60 gig deal is getting a lot of consoles shifted, no one is buying the 40 gig, so after all the 60 gigs are gone the sales will go down to their average numbers.
also, as a personal opinion, haze looks awful.
yeah, it`s very possible, that x360 will make 500k in usa alone for october, november and december. =)
but this won`t matter, because ps3 will already have good install base, by the end of year, like 1,5-2 mln. japan, ~3 mln. europe, and 3-3,5mln. usa. =)
ps2 made 40mln. in 2 years, x360 failed to do the same, while ps3 still have chance, to sold over 25-30 mln. by the end of march 2009.
Everyone down here loves 360. I have a lot of friends who bought it this month for Halo 3 alone, but don't know anybody who bought a PS3 this month, for any reason. And even though I expected 360 to outsell PS3, I never expected it to outsell Wii.
Heavenly Sword does not appear in the top software sales list. It was released in September so I thought (even in Canada) that it would place at least 7th or 10th? The only PS3 title that cracks the most sold list was NHL 08. I know Canadians love their hockey.
i see more Heavenly Sword commercials up here than i see Halo 3 commercials...
Personally, i dont know anyone with a PS3..about 15-20 peeps with 360
im actually surprised the Hardware sales are that good for the PS3
again this is just me and my friends not all of canada
heavenly sword gets so much more advertising then halo here.
which sucks because I like Chopins raindrop prelude in D flat major Op.28, No. 15.
and I still love being 3rd place this generation.
Soo many fanboys are hoping I will still blow 360 out of the water.
I just tell them I have Blu-Ray and Cell and Six axis.
automatically these fanboys will fall for it.
Geeze Xbots, what do you expect?
No ones going to buy a PS3 the month BEFORE the price drop. Derrrrrrr, we all knew it was coming.
And of course Xbox outsold PS3. Its Halo month. Your Christmas. I'm actually surprised it was by so little
Ha, 5 disagrees. So you think PS3 should sell well a month BEFORE a price cut.
And you think PS3 should sell well during Halo Month.
You guys really are dumb kids, do you even think about what you're saying or just hit disagree like its an "I luv Xbox" button?
Probably even some of the Xbots who can shave here are saying
"Man, they're some dumb kids."
I remember sometime back the ps2 campaign had a byline saying welcome to the 3rd place or soemthing. I guess they saw the future of ps3.
"But it's the truth and Numbers dont lie. PS3 Outselling 360 WORLDWIDE with America being the exception."
It's funny how you are never around when the numbers continue to prove you wrong.
They also exhibit quite similar behaviors in buying video games. Look at candian numbers and multiply by 10 as said above and you should have a fairly close estimate of U.S. numbers for september. That would mean the following:
It's just a guess, of course, but that's what it would look like if 10X were true...
Normally yeah that would make sense, but then again you don't know whats going around in people's mind. Who know maybe all of america is gonna buy a ps3 trm. who know?
The real problem with PS3 in canada right now is price and advertising. After they get the price down it will sell. No surprise that 360 did so good, a lot of people are buying it just for halo 3. Advertising for halo 3 was huge.
It's gonna be the same in the US. Yes, sales are that high because of Halo 3, but that's not an excuse. PS3 is still getting outsold massively.
PS3 has pricing issues to sort out and they have to hope for their own killer app. There will be better dayz.
September was squeezed between 2 blockbuster 360 titles. Bioshock and Halo 3. Of course the 360 is going to outsell the PS3 in the US and Canada. Even in the EU where the 360 has been beating the PS3 it significantly boosted that sales gap even more.
Lets see how October turns out. I want to see if the 360 can beat the Wii in monthly US/Canada sales for another month. I wonder hif this is a sign of the Wii slowing down.
November will be in interesting month because that will be the first month that all 3 terretories will have the new 40GB PS3 and it's significant price reduction. Thats going to be the real test. Can the PS3 beat the 360 in US/Canada sales in November. Can the PS3 beat the Wii in Japan sales.
It so funny watching sonykids squirm, I remember in the last couple of months prior to Halo3's release tons of sonykids constantly saying Halo3 would have good sales but it wouldn't have much impact on hardware sales, ha ha now these same haters are saying "well of course we expected Halo3 to boost sales"= just stfu sonykids, I'm so sick of you fking whining, complaining, and fking double standards= ps3 is getting raped, the 40gb will boost ps3 sales but will it be sustained through the holidays against the 360 that more and more consumers are realizing is the best GAMING CONSOLE hands down=
Projected Sales have PS3 outselling XBOX 360 in Japan and in Europe only weeks after Halo 3 was released. I wouldn't celebrate just yet.
just went on sale in the UK. After all the 60 gig models(that are selling in a bundle with a pricedrop) are gone the sales will slump back down and MS will release the arcade version/halo 3 bundle and it will see the same sales.
Only need to look at my avatar :D
I wouldn't, especially when projected sales did indicate they got outsold in both Japan and Europe last week, only weeks after Halo 3 was released.
That would alarm me just a little, considering this is a console war that will last for years.
I don't flip flop. I just stay honest.
A lot of people are taking this out of hand. Example: Jokes On You.
No one(or at least I wasn't) was saying that halo 3 wouldn't boost sales. We were saying that the people who wanted halo 3 already had the 360. A lot of people were acting like 360 would suddenly jump to 15 mill + because halo is coming out? That was simply not the case. Yes it will boost sales but it won't boost sales to the point where the consoles sold will increase DRAMATICALLY. Which has been the case thus far. 360 sales for America will indeed be a good size increase in sales.
If PS3 releases the 399.99 unit before christmas or for christmas this is putting the price into perspective. A lot of people are going to be able to afford that. If sony advertises the games it has coming for christmas that will eliminate 2 problems in a jiffy.
1. PS3 will have games.
2. The price will be low.
That should offer for some great sales come christmas on both ends of the table.
The Sony ponies will be just as bad, if not worse, when next week's numbers come out. It's like a sporting event. People taunt the other side whenever their team scores.
Why they are ignorning that PS3 outsold XBOX 360 in Japan despite the Elite lauching, and according to VG charts they were also outsold in Europe by a healthy margin following the PS3 price drop.
All this only weeks after the release of their biggest system seller. That would concern me a little bit to be honest.
But they don't care.
everyone know the 360 is lost in japan, but it still sells more in europe. One week where the ps3 goes on sale isn't anywhere near the same as lifetime or even monthly sales.
it seems as the wii fever is dying out... slowly dropping...
Once the wii drops to record low... what can Nintendo do to boost sells again? It's obvious that price will not be an issue.. so dropping the price will not really make a difference... soon.. when people wake up from the spell nintendo casted on people with the wiimote... what can Nintendo do.. to make people buy their consoles... it's true what lots of people said... Nintendo wii will not have any effect against the PS3 or the xbox 360 sells... if anything it will help.. because those new gamers will probably upgrade to a next gen console.. if the wii convinced them that games are "fun".
Anyways... based on the comments of "certain" people.. will not say.. cause trying to lay low... [SONY FANBOYS!!!!!]... sorry... I couldn't help it... they are betting that the $400 SKU will change everything and make people run an get the PS3... When in europe things indicate that the SKU that was selling it was the 60GB SKU... because people fear that SOny will remove all B.C. from the PS3... and the $400 SKU is just not selling as well...
Not for nothing... but something tells me... the $400 SKU and dropping the B.C.. is Sony's strategy to force people into buying the most expesive SKUs... smart... lol... seems to be working... But it does not guarantee it will last..
Sony still have to deal with these undeniable facts:
XBox 360 new SKU will come with 2 Games.
XBox 360 are still cheaper...
XBox 360 more games (Specially now without B.C).
Microsoft can drop the xbox 360 another $50.00.
Xbox 360 is console to own if for 3rd party games available in both consoles.
Not everyone buying PS3 is buying it to play games.. Infecting the PS3 installbase with owners that bring no benefit to 3rd party dev.. and bringing down the software attach rate.. like companies using the PS3 as servers.. and people buying the PS3 to watch blu-ray movies..
It's obvious now.. what Sony's strategy was... mixing all markets.. business computers... movie industry... and gaming.. until they make it impossible for partners to know what the target audience is and if they can make money... game developers can't tell if their games will sell.. since companies using the PS3 to host website will not play games... or people looking for a low cost blu-ray player that have no interest in games... or movie studios.. can't tell if people owning the PS3 will buy movies .. and companies using PS3 as servers care about movies... Smart... clever... but with time.. it will become obvious to these 3rd party partners.. if the Playstation 3 attack rate translates to revenue.. sadly.. lots of them will get burn.. and lose money before they really get to know.
Duhh.. price will move consoles... but Sony needs to fix those fundamental problems... before it can have a long lasting or they will start bleeding developers, exclusives and games in general.
At the end of the day.... If a console fails to deliver the games... it fails as a console.
The same can't be said about the xbox 360... because it beats the PS3 at the core... Price... Games.
What a shame. Heavenly Sword is pretty much forgotten now, considering the amount of HS adverts shown in UK (far more than halo 3).
77k to 42k???
It was only one week? Do the research please. Did people forget that 360 got a price drop in Europe not to long ago also?
Once the 60GB is sold out sales will slump? What?? We don't even know what Sony will do after it's sold out.
Halo 3 is out and PS3 is still hanging in there. They have everything ahead of them, High Defintion era is just starting. They have the most fit console with HD playback and no giant grey power outlet hanging out.
It was a bumpy road, but they're still intact. I don't see the PS3 going anywhere.
Sony still holds the last card as their console is still more expensive than XBOX 360. And there's nothing XBOTS can do to stop it!
are you serious? On a global basis, the PS3 is behind about a little over 7 million consoles -- more than their current sold to customers... That doesn't sound like ownage to me... With the price cuts announced today, however, Sony is making the right moves...
