Full break down of sales by regin after jump.
isnt it funny that everywhere the english language is spoken the 360 dominates,(usa,uk,Australia and other countries) everywhere else its the ps3. (this is between the ps3 and 360 not the wii otherwise it would be the wii everywhere)
i find that ammusing
It's not a coincidence... After the Iraq war and thanks to our President policies everything American has a disabantage. People think that one thing has nothing to do with another and that the Game industry is isolated from what happen in the real world... but there was a time in the US (no long ago) that many French products were banned and the french fries were renamed to freadom fries... What make you think the rest of the world is any different?
bladestar what u going on about? because its american only english speaking people will buy it?
Its not about being an american product, the PS brand is just stronger in those countries.
In my country no one had a Xbox or even hear of it. VGs were only PS or Nintendo. But everyone uses a MS computer so its not about being american..
What the hell did you just try to say?
And please inform me exactly what French products were banned. I remember the freedom fries crap but not banning products.
And being outsold by roughly 7k isn't exactly what I would call domination.
Why do you always bring up polical crap when ever the PS3 outsells the 360. Take a moment to think before you spew up your usual pish.
No French Products were banned, although I do remember a protest where people brought a lot of French wines and pour them into a lake to show their anger. It wasn't much of a protest as they were supporting the French economy by buying their wine and wasted their own money.
It had a bad side-affect too, the day after that happen all the fish in the lake had hang-overs....
baldestar, how old are you exactly? you seem to have a brain of a child to think like that.
PS3 and 360 are both manufactured in china. Non of them contributes to the economic well being of either the US or Japan. Unless you are a share holder then you probably shouldn't bother yourself if xbox is selling well or not. By the way, More Americans own shares in Sony than Microsoft. So, if you look at the big picture more Americans are benefiting from Sonys success in the long run than MS success.
just a little info - Bladestar is a MS shareholder (he confirmed it by himself in an older comment), so it's no wonder he will try to twist it totally in the other way, but deep inside he is already considering to sell his MS stocks :)
wtf were u smoking bladestar???
I've noticed that aswell. Lol, I think maybe the voice acting in games goes over alot better when the developers and audience all speak the same language. On a personal note, as long as 360's are selling to people that speak english, I'll be happy, it makes voice chat more fun and effective.
Lol, nice try, but your comment is horsesh*t.
bladestar is right - that is why red indians don't buy xbox 360...
what? didn't ps3 outsell all other consoles (including the wii) in it's first 6 months in australia? (Wii gaining an edge the next month and then never heard of it again)
Wow, Bladestar ... Just when I thought you couldn't get any stupider.
I think Bladestar might be right at one level.
But there is a perception that American products are crap and well the 360 doesn't help in that regard.
With the American economy in its current state Japanese and European will not recieve big profits from the exchange rate. It is nearly 2-1 in pound sterling and 1.47 to a euro.
For those that don't know. Americans and Australians are mostly descendants from Anglo-Saxons from the UK which were originally from modern day Germany. So in a sense i do believe that they have similar culture, values, interests and "tastes". If you guys look at movies, music, liteture in the english world. They are mostly dominated by Americans, Australians and british as 1 they have a common native lanuage and 2 they have similar taste in the arts. This is simply a matter of taste than the world hateing American products as some are saying. Come on bladestar. Do you really think the rest of the world are that immature.
Since when did vgchartzzzz become an accurate place for news anyway?! You guys are arguing over an illegitimate (and 360-biased) website. Now that's funny!!
I don't believe American products are being disparaged in Worldwide perception. I still believe American brand holds better value than Asian brand. That's a no brainer.
However there are some American brand might have exceptional cases. Microsoft OS being plagued with security holes, crashes. General perception of Microsoft brand is not that good. Other brand like Intel, Apple,CISCO still hold their brand values quite firmly.
So if XBOX 360 doesn't sell well in other countries. Don't just simply blame our president or raise the national flag. Look at the product first.
Also, American cars are a joke. Almost as if they were designed by Microsoft's brilliant engineers.
But yes, American companies that make QUALITY products are not boycotted worldwide just because they're American.
FRENCH FRIES WERE NOT BANNED
come on guys, if that doesnt tell you what an idiot Bladestar is then nothing will. And it was REPUBLICANS that hated on the French and wanted to call french fries, "freedom fries"
It was George V. Voinovich, a republican senator from Ohio who started that freedom fries sh!t. Democrats always thought that was ridiculous. And it was Bill O'Reilly and Fox News (Republicans) who tried to start the boycotts against french products. Of course none of it worked though. And now republicans like France cuz their new President is a big America lover. Politics is even more pathetic then "fanboyism"
I find it ammusing that the PS2 is selling as well as it does. I wonder how long in Europe it will continue to outsell the PS3 & 360?
next crimbo the next gen systems will be on top, does any1 know how long the first playstation was outselling the ps2 when both were out?
just think of all those people finally buying PS3's in a year or two...
I find it amusing the PS3 outsold the xbox 360 by some 50 thousand units. Huhaahhaah~ Also, the U.K numbers show one thing... Ps3 has growth... the xbox 360 doesn't. PS3 is closing the gap in U.K. guys...
if u want to be a fanboy about it, how about 2:1 in america (150,000 difference) how about u BLOW on that, also what do u mean growth in the uk, ps3 has never outseld the 360 in the uk since launch.
Well, lets look at facts... Shall we? Ps3 launched in March of in Europe. They're already at half the install base of the xbox 360... which, by the way... launched over 2 years ago there. So, that's what I mean when I'm talking about "GROWTH" Snork... Have a nice time chewing on that.
Also, that 2:1 figure was already misproven, Terry... you can't be serious, can you?
I love how I'm getting disagreed with here... how can you? These are facts. Ps3 didn't launch in MArch of this year? I'm vauge on this one.. Xbox 360 didn't launch worldwide over 2 years ago? Please... You all are had. Live it down is all you can do now.
Ps3 might have outsold the 360 in europe as a whole, but it has never outsold the 360 in the U.K.
haha you guys are something else. Geez nit picking at its best. He never said the ps3 out sold the 360 in the UK, he said "closing the gap" and he is right on that.
LOL @ the dumbass that disagreed with me get a life.
playstation brand spanks 360 on all platforms even without its big hitters in 2008 what happens when they come out if 360 struggles in eu and japan now, later in the year devs will be porting to 360 only ps3 will be the platform of choice its worldwide sales not just the u.s.a that count
The Xbox just isn't Playstation and never will be.
Ps3's total worlwide sales for the week ending december 3rd went down at 500,000 ... with xbox 360 trailing. That's a shame.
trailing by 10,000 is not a shame when you consider ps3 sold 50,000 more in europe and god knows how many more in japan so for teh 360 to be at those numbers with just america and some of europe is bloody good not a shame
Odds and ins, man. The 2:1 theory is what I'm talkin' about.
the patcher theory is for the USA i think where it will prob be 2:1, take everywhere else in consideration it will prob even out, just depeneds on american sales
I think the 2:1 theory was just in the states mate, i could be wrong but i think it was the states. Anyone?
i think thats a bigger issue than 2:1 and what not ..cause seriously ...they are actually selling systems now but are ppl buying it for movies or games.. I'd have to say IMO blu-ray is gonna win because of this but as for playstation as agamin machine is decreasing i mean look at the game sales...only 2 games taht sold 1 million come on!... R&C....Uncharted ..Guitar Hero...all these games should sell 1 million with ease.. i believe sony will win Hardware Sales but software will lag With the Exception of Big hitters AKA.. FF13->infiity, Metal Gear Solid ...you know wat games i mean. the basic gaurenteed million sellers but in all honesty 360 is the ideal gamin platform from a Developers Standpoint ..note this is all my opoinion. so just tell me wat u think and dont attack me . i can be friendly
How 'bout that PS2?
I mean it's one thing to outsell your competition with one console but three? Of course, the same could be said of Nintendo. Those sales are insane.
I think Sony has found the right stride for their consoles in regards to lifespan because they've got solid sales across the board. Hand-held, current-gen, and next-gen.
Sony's goin nowhere. Where they goin? Nowhere. Bubbles for anyone who recognizes that quote.
havn't heard too many boondock saints quotes, but it's a fav
It could've been jsut the states, but that just proves my whole argument here is validated. Xbox 360 is really only selling well in 1 territory, where PS3 might not be selling up to speed with it here in america, it's certainly showing it can more than make up for it in other territories.
I think as this year unfolds we'll have a better understanding of just where all 3 consoles are going. Can the wii sell games, outside their 1st party? I don't think so.. Can Sony stop selling Ps3's on blu-ray alone and start selling systems with games? I'm still waiting... Can xbox 360 become an actual success world wide, like Sony and Nintendo has? Verdict is still out on this one.
Like it, love it or hate it... Sony and Nintendo are accepted world wide... Microsoft and the xbox 360 are not. We've seen this proven just today in terms of sales. That's my complaint. Argue all you want and disagree... I'm being logical.
sony and nintendo are accepted everywhere ...but i do believe 360 is a sucess world wide tho.. (hear me out)...I understand its strugglin/Dying in japan, and ps3 is catching up in uk and what not but if 360 sells 3 million in 2 years and sony sell 1.5 million in less than a year, why do ppl interpret that as 360 failing ? i mean just because something is catchin up doesnt mean the other is going away, also in reference to the 360 sucess thing ..um whats considered worldwide? i mean there has to be a point where its established.. japan isnt the world ..france ..etc Although together along with the other areas they create the "world", I;m just sayin u cant point out its failing areas, basically i think the good out wieghs the bad and thats how i see it
Its the PlayStation name brand. And I want them to kill the PS2, or drop the price of the PS3 in Spring. Imagine half of those people buying a PS2 actually bought a PS3? It would be total domination in the market for the PS3 as it grows with MGS4 releasing soon.
the ps2 is soo cheap and the game library is Huge..now heres wat i think if the 40gb actually had backwards compatiblity thats when i think the ps2 sales would drop and ps3 pick up (when i say pick up i mean even more than it already has).
They need to just abandon the ps2 ..no more games no more hardware ...just stop its hurting ps3 i mean look at it this way wat are the chances those ppl who are buying ps2 will buy a ps3 in the next year ..i mean seriously everytime they sold a ps2 since ps3's launch is just one more person who wont be buying one.(atleast for a while) thats how i see it.
dude.. sony knows what it is doing.. ps2 is pure money, every single one sold has got to be like 75% profit.. im not sure, but sony was losing money on every ps3 sold, not sure if its still true today, but they arent making a lot of money on it. This is a 7 year lifespan, the ps3 isnt going anywhere, and every ps2 buyer is getting a quality product, and will more than likely step into the next gen with the ps3 in the next 2 years. The ps3 is chugging along nicely, even with competing with the ps2, the wii, and the 360, i say keep the ps2 until next chrismas then drop it, shows sony cares about its customers.
Well, a new PS2 revision is coming next year (has been launched in JP already. Integrated PSU). So, I doubt that the PS2 will go anywhere in the near future...see it that way: The PS2 also allows the PS3 to keep a higher price point and thus allows Sony to make some profit - on the low end with the $99 price tag (to come - I am sure) and it can keep it @ $399 for the PS3 to not chew a to big junk at once (well translate those prices to Euros in Europe). Over all sales of the PlayStation brand was > 500K in Europe, with some areas covering 50% market share. Not too bad, IMO.
Pointless sales figure threads: on the up
Gaming news: going down (quickly)
Fanboys screaming at eachother: same
i think you'll all agree, this is a great time to be a "wannabe cooperate exec".
Then why comment at all?
Wow Sony sold over 300k+ consoles (PS3+PS2) in one week in Europe. Thats even more than Wii. Its good to have more than one console in the market.
Multi-hardware formats are impressive as well. With Sony gaming hardware selling 440k in a week and Nintendo hardware selling 840k, both companies are winning in every way that matters outside the fanboy flames.
I wish people would realize that sometimes doing everything to win something like this effectively kills you. Like the old quote that, if we win too many battles like this, we'll be finished.
I thought VG charts didn't matter they are not accurate. But when it shows the PS#3 in the lead it does right.
PS2 life cycle
7 years strong
this only proves that EU is Sony land
sales numbers from VG charts are useless
do you have a better chart? ... vg gives u a idea of whats goin on... not set in stone ..i wouldnt say it was crap tho, i mean are they far off?
i don't know why people say some PS3 titles never sell.
Games like Madden NFL 08, Obilvion, COD3, Heavenly Sword, FIFA 08(I Think), PES 08, NFS:Carbon & Ridge Racer already went gold.
COD4 and Assassin's Creed might go platinum all the way if sales go for good.
for sales source:
yo ps3 is number 1 everyone knows it even xbox is the best cuz guess what he my friend in real life and headmitted that even he wants one.anyway its only a matter of time befor it takes over in u.s.i know it hurts xbox is the best.rememmber when i got my launch ps3 and u clowned and said it would never outsell xbox or have better gamer or graphics well guess what it has done all three now.trade in the addon box and all ur hd movies and get with a real system well welcome u
By stopping support of the xbox..
I don't know how it is worldwide but what I think is that in the US, PS3 needs to sell around half of what 360 does.
US is where the PS3 has been getting killed. That's where they have to turn some momentum if they want to get back into the console war.
I really hope they do.
ps2 is still killin
vg worldwide sales are in on incoming news according to that ps3 outsold 360 worldwide to
Great sales for the PS3..damn the PS2 just keeps on going huh..?..
the PSP sales are kinda low..but good week for Sony overall
wait PS3 outsold the 360 worldwide!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?
its funny how sony fanboys agree with ps3 sales from vg chartz when the have more sales than the 360 but when the 360 sales more according to the vg chartz they says "we dont believe vg chartz...they are never true we will wait for the NPD numbers".....
at incoming news.the xbots are trying not to let it through so if ur able approve do it now so everyone can see.it says ps3 outsold xbox worldwide to
seen these Sony fanboys cry foul whenever VG charts favors 360. Now it favors PS#3 and it's O.K. You guys are funny.
god dammit.. stttoooopppp with the vgcharts.. jesus.. will you guys just quit it for a week?? wait for worldwide numbers with comments from vgcharts.. this is getting insane
360 is closing the gap PS3 has been beating 360 by 90k-80k-70k and now only 50k.
