Find out how just how well the Wii and DS are selling worldwide, compared to Sony and Microsoft's machines..
The ps3 outsold the x360 worldwide by nearly a million? didn't xbox 360 have all europe till march and then Halo as well... I was led to believe that the x360 was selling better then the ps3, specially in the NA region (isn't that like the biggest region in terms of worldwide sales) . can anyone explain this to me pls.
Not sales figures,
Its in the title.
not sales to customers.
In terms of sales wii is ahead . It has sold around 12.5 m units compared to 11m for x360 and around 5.3 for ps3
ps3 shipped 6 million consoles just 2 weeks after march!! those numbers are consoles sold not shipped!!
and if u r so sad that the ps3 sold more then x360 then i will tell u y! and this is the truth! its because its selling more every where else other then north america and dont forget the launch in europe in march was very big!! do u get it now y ps3 sold more in that period? and thanks to halo 3 and bioshock x360 sold well in september other wise it would have sold less then 2 million in 9 months! its the sad reality xbox fans!
@1.5 below me!
i never said anything about 5.9 million ps3 sold! actually i dont know how many they sold but i know above 5.5 million and less then 6 million! i was talking about the 1 million more sold ps3 then x360!
# PlayStation 3 - 3,930,000 (SOLD) | 5,590,000 (TOTAL SOLD)
# Xbox 360 - 3,000,000 (SOLD) | 13,400,000 (TOTAL SOLD)
These numbers are from January to September 30th 2007, the Ps3 has sold roughly 1 million more units in the same time frame as the Xbox 360. Keep in mind, Microsoft considers units shipped as units sold, so Xbox 360s numbers could be exaggerated.
@1.2 your joking about the ps3 sales numbers right?
@1.3 the 5.9 came directly from sony. its the numbers of consoles they sold to retailers.
Are you really paying attention. These numbers from my understanding are from the entire 2007 year upto september 30. With that being said, the PS3 launched mid to late november 2006 in the US and in 2007 in Europe. So, it would have actually been a bigger suprise to me had the 360 outsold the PS3 in 2007.
Also during the months that people were saying the 360 was outselling the PS3 in Europe, it actually may have been true. Think about the key dates the PS3 had during 2007 worldwide vs the PS3. 2007 launch in europe (don't know how many sold though) and june price drop (Hugh boost.) and Europe price drop and 40gig. One could include Halo as a major date for the 360 along with its price drop, but If i remember correctly Halo release at the end of september, which means it only got included for 5 days of that month.
It's good to see that the numbers are finally out. What they also showed was that all of this time (for months) people were saying that the wii had surpassed the 360 when infact it hadn't until this month. Amazing how stuff get spreaded around. Something else it shows is that nexgenwars' numbers were pretty accurate based on the ratio against one another for the consoles.
Anyway good to see the numbers.
I'm even more confused because businesses always work in terms of the fiscal year and the fiscal year doesn't have to follow the calander year. If it's shipping sales from january 1st 2007 till september 31st 2007, that means the author extrapolated results either from the last fiscal year or this year because Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony (infact most other businesses) don't share the same fiscal year as the calander year. so even though sony and nintendo are now talking about q2 results they are talking about different time frames.
I think sony start q1 from around March therefore your digging into q3/q4 of 2006/2007 for sales for start of this calander year 1st january 2007.
Also January and febuary isnt the busiest time of the year, that accolade goes to november/december, so if your going to make a year to date account of sales, good luck. And of course chrismas season figures are always astronimically high, no other month compares to it, you get that figure wrong all your approximates get badly skewed.
According to sony, they sold/shipped 0.7 in q1, 1.2 million ps3 units in q2 2007, total of 1.9 million shipped. erego they sold from march till september nearly 2million, so logically (if this article is correct) they sold/shipped approx 2million jan to March. Making a grand approx total of 4million (3.9 according to the figures). What doesn't make sense is this. November/decemeber can't have been more busy then are other periods if the total number of sales are 5 and half million. because that leaves one and half million sold/shipped during the buesiest time of the year, around launch as well. this can't be correct becuase then it'd be like any other period of the year. And chrismas is definetely not like any other period of the year. not on your life.
Dont believe the hype. This site is anti microsoft.
UMM this doesn'y seem accurate...the Wii numbers umm should be higher..
and it would be nice if we could stop these.
those PS2 software numbers are NUTS
As mentioned in the reports, the shipping figures are not the same as sales. Could this be clarified in the editing?
Holy confusing...the title says shipment figures and then the story says "find out how well...is selling." WTF?
jackfatal has too be the dumbest person on these boards....I think your helmet is strapped on too tight there kid...
What part of "Worldwide Shipment Sales" in the title do you guys not get?
its says read full story and the title of the page says SALES not shipment so obviously the source is talking about sales not shipments that is why he is confused this is the sales not shipment so your confused apparently albeit it probably means sales to retailers.
Does the title on this page say sales or shipments? So again and I didn't say anything about the next page, next year or next anything so... "What part of "Worldwide Shipment Sales" in the title do you not get?"
Shipping =/= sales.
PS3s are still sitting on the shelves. 360s are too, but leave faster and Wii's havent seen a shelf in almost a year.
ps3 sells in EU and JAPAN
wii everywhere and x360 only in NA
but shipments give an idea of what the companies expect to sell, not all live up to it. Sony must realy be anticipating great sales of the 40gb no BC version but then again they had many collecting dust on store shelves last year. It will be interesting to see if they stay way down there at the bottem or if they climb up a step or two. Anyway you look at it the arguments should be pretty hardcore on all sides this year (looking forward to the sh!t slinging here at N4G myself)
The PS2 has nearly 124 million out and about? Do you think any of the new consoles (Wii, 360 or PS3) will ever match that?
software sales figures for the 360?
MS never announced them.
Those are "SHIPMENT" figures, NOT SOLD figures for PLAYSTATION 3!!!!!!!
The PS3 did not sell all "4 MILLION" in EUROPE, thats for damn sure.
Especially with 360's HALO 3, FORZA MOTORSPORT 2, PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER, FIFA and GHOST RECON still topping the all formats chart for weeks.
PS3 did "NOT" sell all those numbers.....and I estimate 360 at 13 million total sales and climbing, Wii at 12 million something.
If Gran Turismo 5 was out, then the PS3 would have sold all those in EUROPE but its doubtful. They are only shipped numbers.
know how to read? Of course PS3 didn't sell 4 million in Europe these are WorldWide numbers sherlock. And according to this the PS3 still managed to outsell the 360 worldwide, even with all the negative media, no games, and a higher price. Karma's such a b1tch aint it.
Kid needs to chill reminds me of nasim.
Why don't you marry the guy since you are always talking about him.
Yes how come the title says Shipment while the text says sales :S decide on one kthx
Strange that PS3 fans did not know a company sells their consoles to the retailers "shipping sales" vs a console making companies "retailer to consumer sales".
strange that u think that all ps3 fans dont know that. typical xbox fan? i wouldn't dare to say that. =D
and people those are not shipments those are sales there ain't a thing on that page that says shipments
" there ain't a thing on that page that says shipments "
They only count them as "SOLD" to retailers, about 3,000,000 sold to retailers for 360 and 3,900,000 "SOLD" to retailers for PS3.
That is how they count them. Those are "SOLD" to retailer numbers only, aka "shipped/sold" to retailers not purchased from store retail sales which come out later.
i don't see it can you tell me where it's at
Well all know that the 360 is at 12.3 million sold....but where is the ps3 at???? Ps3 fanboys were saying the ps3 was over 6 million sold. They only shipped 5.6million. So I guess my original statement of around 5 million ps3s sold is true after all.
Spinning in the wind...
They're just spinnin' it all the time because of course all their games were delayed, so they have to say 6 million PS3s have been sold.
Its actually 5.3 million, if all the retailers sold out of all the newer PS3 40s. That is they didn't sell all the units shipped until later.
Face it retards on a worldwinde basis PS3 SOLD ... READ IT AGAIN IT SAYD SOLD!!!! 900,000 MORE!!! You aren't the chrat so shut up... Xbox box just isn't a Playstation face it... expect it to get MUCH WIDER next year and the next... and the next... HAHA HAA AHA HA HAHAHAHAHHAA./ You can try to twist it all you want the page says SOLD. PERIOD!
My PS3 Spin
PS3 outsold x360 although the PS3 was only fully launch in March this year at 200 dollars more than nearest competition with a very small game libary. Note also Halo3 was launched by the end of September.
My x360 Spin.
x360 after a year head start naturally slowed down in sales compared to PS3 and the wii which just launched. The news of the 33% failure rate also slowed down sales and Halo3 was launched at the very end of september.
My wii Spin
None....It owns all.
for the ppl who dont know anything about PS3 sales .. aka usually xbots cuz they say the sales are lower than they actually are
The Playstation 3 has sold over 5.5 million units ....
as of last month
"Units shipped 5.5 million (as of March 31, 2007)"
now UNITS SOLD:
Japan 1,143,798 (as of September 3, 2007)
North America 1,750,000 (as of October 18, 2007)
PAL territories 1,300,000 (as of August 23, 2007)
Worldwide 5.59 million as of September 30, 2007
"Units sold 5.59 million (as of September 30, 2007)"
soo STOP LYING ... the PS3 has sold 5.59 million units if u say its lower than that u are a liar and/or u dont know the facts
Where did you get your figures from. Excellent if indeed the PS3 has sold 5.6 million since sept.
read the fine print below Hardware and software on page 12.
they use to report production shipments now they report sales. meaning sold to retailers. sorry to break it to you.
I love how some of you Droids twist and turn facts so you don't have to cry in your lonley womenless pillows at night. Next you dipsh!ts are going to say Sony's manufactured consoles are sold units. Just get over it dude the 360 had massive failures but that is fixed now, so the PS3 has massive sales and game problems but I'm sure in 2010 or so it will change. After all it's a "future proof, 10yr console" so you guys have plenty of time for the poor sales and games to get better.
idk whos sold more or all i seee is xbox people bash ps3 on a non stop basis and then ps3 fas bash back it all a joke really im a ps fan but this is byeond insane how people even bash each other when they see a chart of sales imo this site has turned into who can bash who the hardest
For anyone confused it says sales not shipped, in other words N4g title is misleading.
GLOBAL HARDWARE SALES 2007, up until September 30th (and lifetime totals)
* Nintendo DS - 18,030,000 (53,640,000)
* Wii - 9,980,000 | 13,170,000
* PlayStation 2 - 8,400,000 | 123,870,000
* PlayStation Portable - 6,350,000 | 30,110,000
* PlayStation 3 - 3,930,000 | 5,590,000
* Xbox 360 - 3,000,000 | 13,400,000
* Game Boy Advance - 1,620,000 | 80,480,000
note that the first of the two numbers are Sales from JANUARY 2007 to SEPTEMBER 2007 and the second number is is life time sales.
I believe that refers to sales by the companies to the stores.
It was only 2 months ago that we were talking about the Wii passing the 360, and most of the best sources (those not called vgchartz) were saying neither had reached 10 million.
The Wii is selling well, and Halo really pushed the 360, but neither sold that many units, and though both have experianced shortages in some parts of the world, both have also been sitting on shelves in others.
This is likely the number of consoles sold to stores, which is the same thing as saying the number shipped. This would explain the slightly inflated numbers compared to what we would expect, as well as the title.
true I believe that just might be the case.
.....some people really are seriously fuking sad. Why is everyone bickering over sales figures of consoles, holy [email protected]
I hate FANBOYS on both sides, they try so hard to justify their purchases to everyone else and themselves by constantly chatting sh!t about the other consoles. I don't know why people cant be greatful that they own ANY of these great consoles and get to play great games.
MICROSOFT FANBOYS = IDIOTS
SONY FANBOYS = IDIOTS
TRUE GAMERS = people that can comment without bashing the other consoles, and complement great games regardless of what system they are on. These are the people that contribute a great deal to this site and ones in which an intellegent conversation can be had with, its just a shame that there are too many fanboys on this site.
Sorry for the rant. Enjoy gaming for the games, let Microsoft and Sony worry about sales.
You need to see the X-mas 2007 numbers before you look at 2007 sales in aggregate. X-mas is the all important sales period and therefore there is little point to this save to encourage flame wars between the respective fan boys. And while this can entertaining from time to time it is getting tired. There is a definite lack creativity on the part of the fanboys when it comes to their insults for each other. Without that creativity matters degenerate to the level of the playground with expletives thrown in.
yeh but for news sake there needs to be a true ball park figure for console sales in the run up to chrismas for the enthusiasts (calling anyone a fanboy is getting at little tired and by god some try their best to litteraly live up to the title) to talk a little about facts instead of all these endless figures that don't represent whats really happening in the world. And those who are following the console war, the more up to date the information the better it is for us.
heres my theory: if this is still a three legged race by next chrismas, there is going to be a massive fallout the following year. I think there is another sega-esque downfall coming.
This can not be shipping numbers. Sony hit 5.5 Million in shipping in March. Meaning these numbers could never fit if they were shipping.
I think the numbers your referring to are from the console launch 11/2006 to the end of Sony's fiscal year in March 2007. Sony numbers are also reported more accurately now, as in Consoles sold, vs. Consoles shipped.
The distinction is 500 XBox 360's or PS3's in a stockroom where counted as sold when no consumer had purchased them.
Sony has stated a large number of sales occurred between launch and the end of the holiday season, so 5.5 million by March 2007 may be a correct number. The period reported here is from January to September 2007. Are there total numbers on consoles sold from 11/2006 to now...I'd like to see those.
Another old outdated "news" article gets approved. Halo 3 has pushed the xbox 360 over the 15 million mark.
Flippin Sony! they have all these technologies packed in PS3,Cell ,BLu-ray,and Nvidia, Yet should of considered the systems full gaming aspect as well.Instead of pushing so much new tech and selling it at a Huge huge loss.(they can afford to BTW)!
THEY SHOULD OF went ahead & put
768MB or 1GB of Ram in the PS3! since they are now giving the PS3 away!!!
Then I garauntee you The PS3 would be Future Proof,(and no PC or console could touch the beast!But they want to play that money game BS.Now look at their losses.
THey will eventually win though its a longterm garauntee!But when PS3 hits sweet 299.00 price tag.
