Total lifetime sales of Sony’s PS3 have now passed the 22m unit mark in European territories.
congs sony well done glad to be a ps3 owner since day 1?
YAY! Soon PS3 will take over the world!!!11 :P
Well what can i say, europeans don't buy faulty products. @zinkabassi The Xbox360 was released in Europe on December 10 2005. The ps3 was released in europe on March 23, 2007. Thats 1 year and 4 months.
Hiding fear behind folly, I see.
People need to stop responding to this moron within 30 minutes of his post. He gets off on stealth edits.
Good job!!! Anyone knows 360 figures?
somewhere around 20-21 mil. The EMEAA territory certainly prefers Sony over any other. They need to buy another 20+ mil to tie with their PS2 numbers. Sony would love to see that happen. I'm sure it can be done over the next 3-5 years.
@ Dark - Yes It will be World No 1 in 2014-2015 @ Darth - Overtracking numbers for xbox . I think it's lower than 20 million
22 million? thats almost half the ps3's worldwide sales all in europe alone ... whats America doing? o_0;;
Inb4 Microsoft bbubububububut were 1 million ahead of sony in europe. I either pissed off M$ fanboys who still believe microsoft sold more consoles in europe or people who work for microsoft.
xbox has been out a year longer so sony still has that huge gap to catch up on
Oh yes, "HUGE!!!!!".
Considering the PS3 is ahead in the whole of European territories, the catching and surpassing has already taken place.
correction,..Year and a half later than 360 in Europe,... At least that is how I remember it. Don't know what we are celebrating,. PlayStation is f*ing awesome,..always was,.. Considering getting Slim ,.. My day1 fatty is kinda loud nowadays,..
Huge gap? If 3mill is huge, then what makes Wii's??
It's amazing what people consider a 'huge gap' these days. The PS2 and PS1 were ahead of the competition by several tens of millions of units. Now that was a huge gap.
but... but.. the sales
@majiebeast or you just sound like a big old fanboy who is annoying.... could that be it?
^ man, this site has been infiltrated by spammers trools daily... -__-
lol why do gamers even care about sales figures? sorry let me rephrase that..... Only Fanboy douchebags care about sales figures since they can run along to the other console fanboys and go ohhh we outsold you by 4 million narf! ...shutup and game
True, none of us get jack sh1t from any of em but this is a sales article. You may come across as a party pooper. Im just glad that irrespective of sonys position they continued to pump more games i like than the other 2. Celebrate that sh1t i say. Well done sony, keep pumping.
I agree with your comment but think gamers should care a little about sales. If sales are very low, your console of choice would not be very well supported (jaguar or 3do for example)
Sales to a slight degree are obviously important for growth of a new console but when it gets to the stage of each having sold in the millions sales articles are just used as willy waving contests by Fanboys
have poor support gaming wiise
I dont remember gamers care as much about sales this gen as they did in previous gens.
I didn't even know how many PS2's and XBOX's were sold until well into the 360/PS3 gen!
360 isn't ahead of sony in europe, it's 3million behind.lol.
So what, being a PC gamer I could argue that PS3 is around 500 million behind. Sales are of no interest to me unless they are shockingly low.
Clearly they are of so little interest to you as a PC gamer that you feel the need to come trolling around a PS3 sales article.
Lol - what the hell are you talking about? My comment isnt in defence of Xtreme, im simply pointing out how hypocritical Bumnuts comment is by saying he dosnt care about such things. If thats the case then why is he reading and commenting on things he dosnt care about? Try and comprehend what you are reading before you open your mouth and make a total bell-end out of yourself.
I bought the original 60GB which bricked last year and then I bought a slim 120GB, so there's my contribution.
I'm thinking about getting a new PS3 this holiday season..right after classes and exams end.
dont care about this. this is what i care about in september! Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten Resistance 3 God of War Origins LittleBigPlanet 2: Move Pack -- The Rise of the Cakeling Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland all retail heavy hitters in my book. (loving the 3 rpgs)
sad...wher is darksouls
There is way more competition between the 3 console manufacturers in this generation then it was in the past. This results in great games for us gamers. Normally you have one cosole dominating and at least one flopping. This time it seemed that the wii is dominating everything but I think that the Wii's lifespan is much shorter than ps3 and 360's. So it could get close by the end of that gen. Most important fur hardcore gamers is that the competition between Sony and Microsoft stays intact.
I have to agree with you I thought Last gen and the gen before were quite poor to the Snes/Mega Drive and NES/Master system gens as game were coming quick and fast and very good quality where PS/N64 and last gen sony took everything in those gen so the gen was not that exciting to what we have now. It was a sad day when Sega dropped out the Market but im glad MS picked up where they left off as the have managed to show sony up this gen but it has also made sony stronger this gen too and we now have all 3 company battling each other and we are starting to see some of the best exclusive game we have had for along time. Well done to Sony for picking there sales up after a slow start.
I miss Sega hardware :( Sega hardware popped my gaming cherry.
Sales again.. No matter what happens, as long as Sony could bring tons of exclusive games, I'm happy..
Sales ARE important. More sales, more reason for developers to stay and make quality exclusives. Awesome news. 12
Console sales figures worldwide: http://www.vgchartz.com/ I'd take into consideration how poorly Xbox has sold in Japan. Also, I've often wondered how many people actually bought more than 1 360, not knowing they could get free replacements for RROD consoles through extended warranty? This must surely have boosted the 360s sales worldwide.
You will find alot of people have had there 360 replaced by MS. everyone I know who has had the rrod has had it replaced by MS and this seemed to be fixed on the newer fat 360's. At the end of the day both MS and Sony have done well this gen. MS have sold alot more than the original xbox and Sony have managed to pickup there sales after a very slow start but looking at the sales MS are the winner as they have eaten into the PS market which is what MS tried to do. But that said Nintendo are the winners in all this out selling both consoles. But as I said in my post above this gen has been one of the best in along time as one console has not ran away with it and its making MS Sony and Nintendo work harder to please the console owners.
I've once read that the replaced 360's are counted as well. Don't know if it's true though. btw: nice avatar.
Great news for Sony
Fair play to Sony, heres to the next 22m :)
Yay! Awesome news for Sony! It will definitely win in the 2nd place spot this generation! Go PS3!
Sony sold 67 million worldwide
Why stop at 67 million when dealing with imaginary numbers? Sony sold ONE BILLION worldwide.
So now people are caring about sales...... @Buho "the PS3 is the superior console when it comes to games." Is that not a subjective argument as different people have different tastes in games? Then again this is N4G and only one console can have great games....
Nope, never have, never will. But I will say one thing, the PS3 is the superior console when it comes to games.
It isn't a subjective argument anymore. Microsoft is releasing fewer than a handfull of titles this year, which is similar to last year. Sony released and is releasing many more titles. The shared multiplatform games means that the PS3 is superior to the 360 on the games front.
