Microsoft has responded to the latest NPD data report.
Drop the price anyways and be done with it already! this war is getting old.
There's not really a war anymore though. I mean, MS will always outdo the PS3 in NA, while the PS3 will outdo the 360 WW, in the end the PS3 will sell more per year than the 360 and that's pretty much it. It's been that way for the last 3 or 4 years.
Worldwide the 360 is the current best selling console. Unless you are speaking to Japan.
Edward.... They just don't get it. I ask my self that all the time... If the ps3 was killing the 360 world wide then why are they still in last place some 6 yrs later? I guess by world they mean just Japan and europe..
"This is really basic math...." Yet you provide zero numbers for your math? Is it supposed to be algebra and we can plug in whatever numbers we want to? Here is some math that may help you understand why the PS3 is supposedly not leading the 360: 5 - 0 = 5 <--- Where the 360 and the PS3 started That 5 is now less than 5. The only way for that to happen is if the PS3 is outselling the 360 on a yearly basis. These guys say that the PS3 has sold more each of the last two years, and they have been said to be less than fans of actual PS3 numbers: http://www.vgchartz.com/hw_...
So Michael Pachter was right for once this year. Even if he was right this time his accuracy percentage is still about 30%. P.S. In the link Microsoft listed the following games in its up and coming exclusive lineup. · September 20: “Gears of War 3” · October 11: “Forza Motorsport 4” · October 11: “Kinectimals Now with Bears!” · October 25: “Dance Central 2” · October 25: “Kinect Sports: Season Two” · November 15: “Kinect: Disneyland Adventures” · November 15: “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” Someone please tell me that they have more exclusives this holiday than that. One great game, one great re-make, one very good game, and Kinect crap. Can we at least get some mediocre but hardcore game. By the way, is Sony's exclusive line-up this holiday any better than that? I know that I am buying Uncharted 3. What other exclusives are releasing on PS3 in between now and Christmas?
Lol @ the marking of every posts that has proof from both companies reports that the PS3 HAS outsold the 360 for three years WW as trolling. I mean how else did the PS3 shrink the 360's lead from 10 million to 3.5 million? "Voodoo!" *facepalm* @ Darrius Well you have (might be missing some games)... Resistance 3 (Out now) * Edit* Ni No Kuni (Dec 2011-Japan but able to import/playasia.com) The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection (Sep 2011) Twisted Metal (Oct 2011) Uncharted 3 (Nov 2011) Journey (Dec 2011) Battlefield 3 and MW3 are looking to dominate though as well as other big multiplatform games I can't think of at the moment.
@ quick He might be into those. Sorry if my taste in games differs from your "real games" list lol. I still think Ni no Kuni is pretty heavy, it's being made by Level 5 and some people are already calling it " a.k.a Dragon Quest X" today (They think this is how Dragon Quest X should've been). Edit: And tbh, he listed Kinectimals Now with Bears! I think anything I offered would be welcomed from him. Edit2: I hate that. You think you're talking to a normal guy just to find out later he was trolling you the whole time (@ quick).
I guess we have 360 fanboy mods in here today, because every post that proved that ps3 has been outselling 360 every year was marked as immature or trolling, and no one that was ACTUALLY being immature or trolling, simply because they were defending the 360, which was all false anyway. That is very childish, because it is true, that is how the 360's lead has shrunken, because remember? 360 sold first, got a head start, then ps3 came out and has been shrinking the gap ever since... How else could you explain that? Go look it up, don't be stupid.
Simple Math... Xbox 360 had a 10 million sales lead when the PS3 launched. They now hold a lead of anywhere between 3-5 million depending on what you read. Without question Sony has gained 5 million additional sales in the last 5 years. Overall the PS3 has sold approx 10% more consoles worldwide than the 360. This year isn't over yet and may be different, but there is no denying the PS3 has gained ground. They couldn't have done this selling less consoles. -Death
Wait why were the two pro ps3 comments marked as immature, all they provided were facts? What's up with that mods?
Darkride66's post was marked as immature because he likes to call people out for being wrong, but can't get his own information right. He remarks that the 360's lead is "now closer to 2 million" ... well... that's flat out wrong. According to the latest MS and Sony reports, Sony has shipped 51.8m and MS has shipped 55.3m. http://www.microsoft.com/in... http://scei.co.jp/corporate... Please note, both companies report these numbers as "sold". That means the gap is 3.5 million. Not sure where Darkride66 got 2 million from? Did he just make that up or was it some special fanboy magic trick? The official figures show that the ps3 has closed the original 9 million gap worldwide by a marginal 1.1 million per year, or less, on average. No debate there. In recent times, the 360 has increased its sales momentum with steady pricing, while the ps3 has been forced to drop the price again. No debate there, either. I would definitely NOT call that 'handily outsold', though. Still, this is good ole' darkride66, spinning as per usual. What else did we expect?
Sony only caught up because of the panic price drops they made again and again. The 360 is almost its original launch price still. Microsoft has been just raking in the money from the 360 no matter how low the ps3 price goes. The ps3 has dropped price again and im not sure if Microsoft will even match it because they dont have too.
There was never any war just bunch of fans being loyal to billion dollar companies.which is silly because these companies arent our friends they view us as walking $$$.
I guess that free xbox with every PC worked out well for them.
Does anyone really give a flying F**k about this anymore??? Really? all 3 will sell 70+ mil before we see a new batch of consoles......all had good features all had bad.....pick your fav and move on....
Kind of agree... I mean I was a little curious about world numbers, but at the end of the day I would say this generation is pretty much a tie.
A tie between the HD consoles cause Nintendo is waaayyy ahead. Kinda surprising since the 360 was actually cheaper than the Wii for quite a while (the 360 arcade released years ago).
You speak a lot of truth. To be honest sales figures is meaningless for us at the stage because no console is suddenly going to die and are going to get supported. They will continue to sell millions and good for them.
360 wins August. Some things never change.
Glad to see both PS3 and 360 have bright futures ahead of them.
"kinectimals now with bears!" Oh microsoft what went wrong ?
I think they must trying to be Nintendo. · October 11: “Kinectimals Now with Bears!” · October 25: “Dance Central 2” · October 25: “Kinect Sports: Season Two” · November 15: “Kinect: Disneyland Adventures” It's just like Wii Crap we've been getting for years.
i dont know why they are disagreeing, if you disagree with this comment then explain. Im upset that microsoft has gone this road, and 360 fanboys continue to be happy with xbox when they should be mad that they left core gamers behind, the only new core game is gears 3, in past years they would have plenty of exclusives
Here is your explanation. I enjoyed both Dance Central and especially Kinect Sports. I'm looking forward to MW3, Gears 3 and Halo Anniversary. On top of that, there are all the multi-plats, backlog of games, xbox live games and so on. I find I don't have the time to play all the games out. Maybe those games just suits my preference better. Now, is that so hard to understand? That people like different games than you?
Explanation: all those games are sequels or variations of good titles. If you go to Metacritic or GameRankings, you'll see the previous versions all at least got fairly good reviews. Why are you sticking your nose up to fun family/casual games? I swear, I don't get gamers sometimes. Fun is fun.
Why would we be mad? I love xbla, I enjoy multiplatforms, alot of kinect games are fun as hell if you actually used one and the little things like bc and party chat make me stay. And you still can play past 360 exclusives. Only about .001% of people think like you while alot more just enjoy their 360 and what it has to offer.
I always liked my 360 and used it more than I used my PS3 or Wii. Its dvd drive broke more than a year ago and I haven't bothered to replace it because there hasn't been a game that I needed to buy for it for a long time. The family fun games are fine, but they seem to be replacing my RPGs and other non-FPS games. "games are sequels or variations of good titles" - and how many dance dance games or high-def Wii sports games do we need?
I cant believe they said Kinectimals Now with Bears is a quality exclusive
Sales = Quality we all know this, look at the amazing lineup the xbox has had for exclusives this year.... O wait nm. Sony can come in last place for all I care, I still will be playing on the console with the best exclusives ever. The Playstation 3. LLP
i like PS3 too but dont fill 360 articles with these comments
Fanboy much? Stop thinking opinions are facts and go act like an asshole somewhere else.
I miss Gran Turismo. I wish it was on pc.
The fact that the PS3 has closed a 9m console gap, to 2m would mean that the PS3 has outsold the 360 WW for the last 3 years. If the 360 was outselling the PS3 every year the gap would be larger would grow. Instead its dwindling. 2010 the PS3 outsold the 360 by 2.3m consoles. http://igxpro.net/2011/02/2... PS3 14.3m 360 12.1m http://gamer.blorge.com/201... 2009 the PS3 outsold the 360 by 2.3m PS3: 10.8m 360: 8.5m http://www.psxextreme.com/p... 2008 the PS3 outsold the 360 by 1-2m PS3: 8m 360: 6-7m The PS3 is outselling the 360 thats a fact.
i bet they dont have balls (and bubbles of course) to respond to your post... just to show how wrong they were
