Microsoft has just announced its quarterly earnings result
So the 360 outsold the Wii WW for an entire quarter, in fact it outsold it more than 2:1 if I remember correctly. Go MS.
So going off of the last report on Q3 (50.8 million), this puts the X360 at 53.5 million WW. Edit: Damn, my bad. I thought it was 51 million, it 50.8 million. I changed it. Edit2: @ disagree Even your own source in the article says it's at 53.5 million. :/
2:1 my ass. Nintendo sold over 2 million Wii's. This report says "shipped" anyway. Nintendo's report even had PS3 selling the most so you know Nintendo has their data on point if they aren't afraid to show that. I don't know where you are getting this 2:1 from jack. :)
How many are replacement purchases for bricked or banned consoles?
bricked? well the slims xbox have lower failure rates than PS3 so definetaly low. banned? well i'm sure a lot. of course, no one can ban ps3s cause none can get online. ZING!
Nice one. Keep XBLA strong while you're at it MS. That shits addictive. Great games. EDIT: Where are the disagree's coming from? XBLA is host to some of the most creative games I've seen this gen. Carry on playing your COD's and your Fifa's...I'll enjoy gaming genius in ilomilo
Yes, and very underrated...
Why would you even respond with asking why do you have disagrees??? Seeing to how you have two bubbles, it's clear you understand how this site works. If you say anything positive about the Xbox 360, you'll get a disagree. Simple. I see people like you edit your post and say that every time, (especially when the subject is around Microsoft/Xbox 360). It's almost as if you were waiting for someone to disagree with your comment or something, lol. Don't bother worrying about nonsense like that man...
With sales like these is the reason I say we're not going to get a new gen until MS and Sony are nice and ready.
Things might change when the Project Cafe is released though. That said, I'm wanting a new generation to start now!
Still going strong after all these years; no signs of slowing down yet, either :) Things should increase tenfold once Gears of War 3 releases
Sadly that is the only game (so far) you have to look forward to this year. Unless you're a racing fan, then Forza 4 as well.
yeah the 360 has 0 exclusives this year basically
The year hasn't even begun yet, there is still E3 for new announcements. Besides I find it amusing how sony fanboys ignore XBLA and all the new kinect IP's when talking about exclusives.
What about all the multiplat games? Are 360 owners not allowed to look forward to those? i mean so far there's only been ONE SONY AAA scoring exclusive, I'm just saying.
Actually, I have all these to look forward to: Skyrim, LA Noire, Brink, Battlefield 3, From Dust. Deus Ex, Call of Duty, Duke Nukem Forever, Rage. Batman: Arkham City, Michael Phelps: Push Limit. Max Payne 3, Dead Island, I Am Alive, Dark Souls. Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Mass Effect 3, Saints Row 3. BioShock, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Prey 2, Prototype 2 .. What are you talking about with this two(2) game only nonsense? I mean, who the fuck plays only exclusive games? That's retarded.
@KD Yes yes yes. I don't understand why these guys so ape shit over the number of exclusives they have. Especially since just as many PS3 exclusives end up disappointing.... like Move Heroes or Socom 4. Both scored terribly considering the expectations set by the PS3 crowd. And if history has taught us anything, it's that most of the multiplats you listed will likely look and perform slightly better on the 360. Plus, the network you'll play them on probably won't crap out for *weeks* at a time and leak your personal info.
@Echo307 As much as I would hate to somewhat add to this console war cycle we go through EVERYDAY on this site, I'm curious to ask you if you've played SOCOM 4 or did watch a review of SOCOM 4 to come to the conclusion that it was a disappointing game? And before you answer, I'm NOT attacking you in any form or fashion. Just asking a question.
@JAM In all honesty, I have not played the full version of Socom 4. I played the beta (which was really just a demo since they had no time to change anything on the disc before launch), found it to be disappointing, and then read several reviews from publications that I personally trust that also labeled it as a sub-par offering compared to what the Socom franchise and Zipper have delivered in the past. I still *almost* bought it because I wanted access to the Resistance beta. Luckily, PS Plus members will be getting that too so it sounds like I'm in either way. EDIT - I appreciate you asking an honest question without attacking. Despite the way my original comment reads, a fanboy I am not. I've spent way more time on my PS3 than the my 360 over the past 18 months. I have more trophies than achievements and I was a PS Plus subscriber on day 1. I just get sick of reading the same stupid argument over and over again from PS3 fanboys. It's like they think exclusives are the only games out there these days. Truth be told, there are WAAAAAY more high-ranking multiplats than exclusives.
@Echo307 I agree as well. I'm looking more forward to Elder Scrolls V more than anything, so I understand where your coming from on that. I only asked because a lot of people would just go off the review of a game, (without even touching the game at all), than actually playing it for themselves to decide if it's good or not. Glad for once in a long time (sadly) I was able to have a "normal" discussion on this site, lol.
Yeah, I don't quite understand it either, but I do find it funny .. I mean, if exclusives are all they wanna play, so be it, but it's dumb. Half those games I listed I am looking forward to more than any exclusive. And, that is on the PS3 or x360 side of things. I own both systems, anyway. So, it's not like I can't get whatever game I choose to get, so, whatever, lol. Although, 3/4 of my multiplat games are bought and played on my x360 .. Why? I just prefer the x360 controller and Live over PS3s controller and PSn.
Tenfold? Let's relax.
Keyword: "Ships". sold is what matters, no idea why this data is released in the first place as it doesn't really matter
MS doesnt get paid when they get sold to consumers If they are shipping then chances are that a company needs to be restocked
Can you make sure you make the same comment when Sony releases its Move numbers.
MS cares about shipped... because they get paid for shipped units. So to them those units are sold. Sold units is what retail and developers care about. That's how retail makes their money. And developers care because they like to know their potential market.
why do you ppl get caught up on the "sold"?? you do know that say if walmart buys 100 of them they pay ms for all 100 of them right?! so you think that a demand of 2.3 million means nothing? wtf is up with your brain...
Why does it matter how much microsoft gets paid? Do you own microsoft shares, do you work for the company, or you enjoy kissing corporate a**? what matters in the console war is how many consoles are in the hands of the consumers, not how many are sold. Microsoft can sell 2.7 million to retailers, but retailers can keep those for months if they don't sell them. Also, some retailers like to have extra inventory just in case. Oh and by the way it is 2.7 million not 2.3 million. Its hard to take you seriously when you can't even get the right number of the argument you are trying to make, especially when its written in the title
Ya know.. It's kinda sad that 'anything' matters in this 'console war,' of yours.
undercovr look at you...asking me why do i care how much they get paid then insulting me by correcting my 2.3 error. do you not see the irony in that?lol.. no i dont own shares but you dont have to go ape shit on me (lol*avatar*) cause i like the fact the something im supporting, abvously cause im a gamer, is doing great... i support sony and nin as well and also love the idea that they are doing very good as well. you just sound like a bitter wannabe gamer.. i bet sony would love to have sold that amount ( i know that comment pains you and im aware its not teh world)even if its a couple months cause when its sold out in 3 months guess how many more they plan on supplying AGAIN 6 years later...
Ship ≠ sell This data is irrelevant.
Except when Sony "ships" 8million Moves! Right?
Yea, but Sony ships directly to your living rooms, so it's not the same.
They do? Thats an awesome service, I want that. Do they take credit cards?
ahahhahahahhahah @ max I see what you did in your comment.
actually it kinda does cause 1. i dont think they just hand out the consoles to the retailers 2. they will EVENTUALLY get sold but whatever...gamers dont play sales data right?
I wonder where I said anything about Sony? Oh, that's right...I didn't.
Wow someone actually brung RROD into this that is so 2006 lol Desperate much or you just mad?
Amazing, the 360 articles sure bring out the slumbering trolls and sony fanboys.
more like the microsoft fanboys trying to rationalize even though there system is number 3 worldwide with 0 hope of changing that before nintendo releases there enxt system.
Are you talking to me? Really Friday should be the national anthem for America. Fanboy isn't a insult so don't worry I'm not offended.
can't blame the poor saps with all the sony fail lately.
lmao yea it most definitely never happens the other way around
@Vampiric Sony just managed to get the top 2nd spot after how many years? How many price drops and revisions? lol, too funny. @Kwiet Not as much as it does here, half the comments are troll food.
It's as if Nostrodomus himself predicted it. When Sony had fewer games: LOLNOGAMES!!! When Sony got more games: LOLNOSALES!!! When Sony got more sales: LOLTOOKYEARS!!! I guess for people like maniacmayhem it's better than: :(
Really Xbox fans? VGCHartz again? I don't care if even MS said it, I'll wait until another site posts the numbers. Off to NeoGAF!
"Microsoft has just announced its quarterly earnings resul" Dude, it's there just read (oh wait...)
VGChartz quotes Microsoft's numbers from their own press release AND provide their source set you still choose to deny their authenticity? How pathetic.
so sony must of shipped maybe 3.3 or 3.5 million cuz ps3 has been outselling everything basically since 2011 started WW according to vg
Can't hate on Microsoft, they know how to make money in a big way, I mean EDD made 225 million in profit and MS made 5.3 billion in profit as a whole in one quarter. X360 business is up 75 million in profit from last year and overall profit is 35% up for the whole company. As a share holder(I'm not) I'd be grinning ear to ear about this. As a gamer(I am) meh...
they are alive and recomended!
Def the best selling console of all time
@josephayal All i can say is NO, but they are doing much better than last gen. What is up with all these exaggerations on n4g? Can't anything just be normal?
lol! VGCharts really Here is some real news http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/b... But sales of the console are falling - 15.1 million were sold in the year to March, down from 20.1 million the previous year. And Nintendo expects sales of about 13 million in the next year. By comparison, rival Microsoft has also seen a slight fall in sales of its Xbox - it sold 10.3 million in the year to March 2010, down from 11.2 million the previous year. But Sony has seen a rise in sales of its Playstation 3. It sold 13 million units in the year to March 2010, up from 10.1 million the year before So much for the Kinetic effect LMAO!
