*sorry for the double post

ElementX3564d ago

Stunt don't wait, it's probably not happening. MS says they want consumers to have a choice and they put in a large order for regular DVD drives.

jiggyjay3563d ago

These are NPD numbers.. Meaning North America only.. Halo 3 has sold over 5 million worldwide, which includes the rest of the world!

WOW the Xbox 360 outsold the PS3 by over 400,000 consoles! and the PS3s numbers have declined from last months, things are looking REALLY bad for Sony right now, just look at the numbers of the 360 and Wii compared to the PS3s that's a huge margin, this puts Sony even further behind the 360 and Wii in North America and worldwide.

ActionBastard3564d ago

Halo 3 launch, no Wii games and no PS3 price cut. I wonder why it sold so much? Moron.

xplosneer3564d ago (Edited 3564d ago )

Sony as a whole is in no way in trouble. If you hadn't noticed the total Sony console sales beat Microsoft's total sales by about 75 thousand.
Also, this was a huge month for Xbox 360 with the obvious release of Halo 3, plus many people forsaw the 40GB price cut and therefore didn't buy a PS3 in the last couple of weeks.

But dang Wii 500K on a competitor's biggest month O_O

Kokoro3564d ago (Edited 3563d ago )

360 had a huge month: 3.3 million copies sold of Halo 3. good work on Skate too! heavenly Sword is disappointing, but still, at least in the top ten.
Good thing Sony released their price cut today, because this cannot be spin very well.

it's late here in the Europe, but I just had to see this.

PS3 Limps on and on3564d ago

But PS3's numbers are even down from last month. While I think all other consoles rose.

That's really the worst thing for Sony.

fjtorres3564d ago

1- August was a 4-week month
2- Sept was a 5-week month

That's how Wii (and the 360) got to 500+.
Factor that in for the PS3 and...

ARBitrator3564d ago

Did the PS3 not have the same 5 week opportunity?

fjtorres3563d ago

Compare the PS3 august numbers to sept and factor in the 5 weeks vs 4...
What do you get?
A honking big month to month decline, perhaps?
(131K in Aug to 119K in sept).
I was trying to be diplomatic, y'know...?

beast3564d ago

With Halo and bioshock. What did u expect
PS3 now its your turn, MGS4-KZ2-LBP-UNcharted-GT and FFX111

Wii i dont know why you keep selling but i got to give u credit because with no games u still kept with xbox biggest gun.

But i know people who were holing on ps3 because of the obvious price cut coming
