Check out the life-to-date hardware sales for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS, and DS based on NPD data.
the ds is the compiled ds, ds lite and dsi sales. Technically the 3ds falls into the ds family but i dont think those are in that total.
No they don't. 3DS is a new console, so please stop saying factually incorrect statements.
its amazing how big of a gap ps3 has in states yet how little the total gap is when considering world wide sales and no psp
It really is amazing, but unsurprising at the same time, given how American consumers shop. Anything that is advertised a lot on TV and is referenced enough on sitcoms n such, usually steals the mindshare, regardless of any past "allegiances." The PlayStation 2 was a trojan horse, as far as gaming systems go, but good ol' Sony was tossed aside when Xbox was able to grab the market when there was no competition for all those months. Even now it continues to sell great numbers even though all gamers know the PS3 is clearly in an entirely different position than it was when it launched.
That because people are not trying to be loyal to no dem company, most people who made up there mind that they are only going to get one console proberly compared the 2 and made a a choice. when you really take the time to look at what these console have to offer, other then blue ray and really 1 good exclusive how can you really choose one over the other. I know ps3 has more actual exclusive but they only have one real seller, just like 360 only has one, and that is uncharted 3 and gears 3. the sad part is ps3 big seller I bet my last dollar will only sell as many as the halo anniversity game. But that's not really bad cause I'm expecting 4 to 5 mill for both, I never played halo 1 and will most diffently pick it up and so will others after halo reach.
I think it has more to do with American's tend to play console games online far more than most other regions. The Xbox 360 is well known for it's online service....
wow...this really shows that the USA is obviously significant but the rest of the world is even more so also.....no PSP??
