Here's a look at the worldwide hardware data for the month of October, which contains the 4 weeks from October 1st-28th and applies a scaling factor to get 31 days' worth of data.
I'm no fan of Mr Bloodmask CEO of Microsoft Marketing at N4G.com, but I see no reason why this shouldn't be approved if its the October Global sales so I am approving it. To fail it just because someone (like you) isn't interested in sales figures, is nonsense.
That site is just as bad as Gamers Creed.com. Piss poor writing and typical fankid shenanigans.
Am I missing something here? Either Im retarded, or the rest of you's are retarded, cuz all I see is the PS3 beating the 360 everywhere except for in the U.S. or in "other". So why are all the Sony fanboys getting upset? i dont get it. And then to have this kind of news be reported by Bloodmask of all people and coming from a site like Xboxkings of all places. Just doesnt make sense to me. What am i missing?
haha damn Bloodmask didn't stop till you got it approve huh..btw...
I'll wait for official number 2 come out..the 360 sems a lil inflated...but w/e...it's sure taking a beating everywhere else...wonders whats gonna happen to ti..when those NA..numbers go back to normal...do we hear dropping to third place..?
YEAH RIGHT,LOOK AT THE PICTURE THEY HAVE ATTACHED ON THE STORY
New model DIDN'T GET RELEASE WORLD WIDE JUST EUROPE so dont even say OH IT NEW MODEL DIDN'T HELP IT WHEN IT DIDNT LAUNCH GLOBALLY god what an idiot, and the price drop was effective when OCTOBER WAS NEARLY OVER total bs. Let see how november plays out...
...was released in New Zealand during October and we're not part of Europe.
The PS3 didnt have the 40Gig in oct. Xbox kings....is that part of the burger king deal? best exclusive that system will ever have.
...hit disagree to my previous comment (above). The 40GB model of the PS3 was released in New Zealand in October ( http://www.gamesman.co.nz/p... and New Zealand is not part of Europe. We're part of Asia-Pacific.
F**king fanboys - I wish you would all p*ss off!!!
slow news day.. ill create news at xboxkings - bloodmask
This "was" a legit news article but all of the Sony extremists reported it so it failed. If you look at the bottom of the page it has the source link.......which is
Source: www.vgchartz.com/news/news.php ?id=610...
I couldn't use that link anymore bc it was duplicate. It was reported "falsely" which is against the guidelines and is also an abusal of the "reports" system. Why do you think the administrator didn't fail this story?? Bc it is "News". All you people just didn't want this story getting through bc it states that the 360 outsold the PS3 by over 300,000 units last month. The Xboxkings post I made is an exact copy of what was posted at VGChartz.....no editing at all.....Can you explain to me why the monthly hardware sales for October shouldn't be posted when they are every other month from VGChartz????? I know they are not as accurate as NPD but they are still "always" posted...
"I couldn't use that link anymore bc it was duplicate"
"You guys are retarded" - sounds like a personal attack to me, oh wait doesnt matter because im a sony extremist? its ok for to do it...
The problem is that you've forget to tell "price cut only for europe during october, november will be better for ps3 everywhere in the world, and the halo effect is already slowing down = less 360 next month"
biaised xbot blog.
While the website is clearly biased, the numbers from the original source are completely accurate. Website bias is commonplace in 2007.
And Bloodmask is correct: "...Can you explain to me why the monthly hardware sales for October shouldn't be posted when they are every other month from VGChartz?????"
VGChartz may not be NPD, but it IS always reported anyway... usually several references made to it actually... weekly, monthly, ect.
Bloodmask: "...This 'was' a legit news article but all of the Sony extremists reported it so it failed."
If this is true, that's really sad.
Well they probably didnt approve it because the website is biased. Xboxking.com, come on you know you was asking for trouble. why dont you link it straight to the source.
I couldn't use the "original" source anymore. It failed approval bc it had SPAM reports and duplicate reports which were all false. Sony fanboys just didn't want this news to get out.....here is the proof
Good numbers for the Xbox 360, and even I will congratulate the PS3 on its successful rise in sales in Europe with the introduction of the 40gb PS3
at the end of the day none of us are getting a penny from those sales
you could have at least cited the real site then. like, added it as a alternate source. either way, as soon as i saw xboxkings i knew something was fishy. heck, i might as well make my own website, copy and paste info onto a page and post it here. its no different.
and you know you're asking for trouble when the site has that banner on it.
But the trick is, the reason he "re-posted" it on a different website is because the original story was falsely reported. However, the banner ad is awful.
Well the ps3 sale are picking up, so now that the 40gb is being released in he states and japan we shall see what happens. And with sony heavy advertisement, here in the states it should increase the numbers. Sony could completely just take over japan now with the release of the 40gb ps3 there, now they should focus on europe and the NA.
O okay now i understand now.
What microsoft needs todo is try and get some momentum in japan. they could have easily taken benn well ahead of the competition if the could have gotten some sale in japan.
NO japan is not real needed or sales only for their devs ,nicrosoft need to get not only uk ut the rest of europe and the console war is over europe. xbox are already out selling p[s3 world wide with places like india only knowing about microsfot .
what PAL stands for??
PAL territories. dunno what it stands for, but basically its europe.
uhh Phase Alternating Line...IDK if im correct it's the only thing that comes to mind.
Africa is also pal. i think.
I can't wait to see the numbers after the first full week of the PS3 at $399 in America. I wonder if it will be like the UK numbers after there price drop.
everyone always say that the PSP has no games so way is it out selling the 360 with one of the biggest games out this year?
Because PC has a "billion" install base. How about we put TV vs VCR or Cell phones vs short wave radio. When you guys compared PS2 vs 360, thats was bad enough but this is a new kind of f**ked up.
PS3 sales have definately increased in the UK. However on a worldwide basis 360 is currently outselling PS3 by a large margin. Over 300,000 consoles a month. We shall see what happens next month with the PS3 having it's pricedrop in NA also, should be interesting...
