Ummmm, meanwhile back at the ranch...??? This is pretty pointless... It doesn't matter how many items are downloaded for free off the psn... They're free. People will dlown load anything just to have something to do. This also had very little to do with actual numbers from npd and vg charts or claims to back it up.
400% sales boost
PS3 went on to beat x360 in WW sales for NOVEMBER by as much as 60000 units
I expect the ps3 to beat the x360 by even bigger margin in December thx to very strong EU sales
You read wrong. PLAYSTATION hardware sales were 1.5 million not PS3 hardware sales. PS3 had 466K in sales for the month. L2R.
so in terms of WW sales PS3 murdered x360 by 60k --200k units
Another xbot who doesn't know there's a world outside of America.
Please stop spreading your lies. (just giving you a bad time by the way)
I wouldn't say murdered... but yeah, they did beat the xbox 360 in total sales last month. Which is a start. I just hope we'll see those people buying the system by some actually games!!
R&CFTOD shot up from 230,000 to over 500,000 ... that was impressive. Uncharted had over 200,000 in sales for the week too. So, people are coming around.
so DEC NA sales and EU sales have gone up significantly as projected
Thats how u have 1.5 m ps3s WW in NOVEMBER vs around 1.2m x360s WW in NOVEMBER
so difference is 300k
PS3 wins by big margins in terms of WW sales
That is great news for the PS brand. It shows that the system is finding its groove and still without big name exclusives. Unfortunately on this site, the x-kiddies seem to think that NA is the entire world. Logic, such as worldwide sales, mean nothing. Nor does the fact that the PS brand is quickly becoming a global powerhouse. Instead, there will be numerous fanboys trolling this post bragging about NPD numbers.
PS2 is still selling like hot hotdogs
Great news for Sony - it's a great way to recoup their losses on the PS3 until it takes off next year.
PSP + PS2 - PS3 = Not so bad. :)
They're better than "not that bad".
PS2 + PS3 = King of Consoles.
I was talking in terms of profits. Aren't they losing money on PS3's - they can recoup those losses in PSP/PS2 sales + PSP/PS2/PS3 software.
Wow, I never expected it to beat the 360 during November.
It's nice to see sales picking up.
i dont think you would ever expect to see x360 beat ps3 but just the other way round
Hopefully ps3 will catch the wii too in 2008
with MEGA TITLES in 2008 that is almost warranteed
It is really amazing how the Ps2 is selling like hotcakes, and that it is still in it's 7th year and stil going for 3 more.
i cannot believe that the PS2 is till putting up those kind of numbers! I guess a large library of games, reasonable price, an lots of loyal fans can put a system well past its esitmated life span.
doesnt look like the PS2 is gonna slow down anytime soon
Am I the only one who's lost as to where they're coming from?
They're not from this article. This article is little more than a wordy interpretation of the NPD. Minus Wii, and 360.
its playstation by the Numbers. There really not comparing consoles like i thought they would. However, its still a Playstation product.
@FreedomReign: I wasn't going to say anything because I thought I was missing something obvious, but I don't know where the hell those numbers are from either. I guess it's nice to see Sony doing well...
So let me get this straight the PS3 out sold the 360 in world wide sales or is it all 3 SONY consoles put together like PSP, PS2 AND PS3? Can someone please let me know I'll give bubbles.
PLAYSTATION SALES ARE PICKING UP IT AINT THAT HARD TO BELIEVE WITH COUNTLESS AAA TITLES NOW AND MORE TO COME AND WITH A PRICE DROP THE SALES ARE ONLY EXPECTED TO GO UP
This article is a NA centric article. It clearly states that PS3 sold 466k in November.
This quote right here shows worldwide console sales of Playstation hardware:
"**For the month of November, PlayStation console sales reached 962K units."
Do you guys read or scan? Anyways, why are we arguing. This is good news for Sony.
"Since its release in North America on Oct. 26, 2000, more than 120 million hardware units and more than a billion units of PlayStation 2 software have sold worldwide."
A BILLION. Wow.
Give the DS a few years, and maybe it will challenge that number.
MGS4 and KZ2 aren't even out yet....
Plus there are the multiplatform sellouts that think the 360 will last...hah. If only they new that piece of crap actually brings down the quality of games. Ahh well. Time will tell, not me.
PS3 > 360
It's great to see the PS3 selling well because more units sold means fewer crappy, half @ssed multi-plat titles but that's no reason to insult the other console. Xbots do that because they're insecure. I like to think most PS3 owners are above all that nonsense. The 360 is a cool machine, it just has some hardware issues. Our PS3's are cool too. No need to be a fanboy about it.
It seems as if people just believe anything without a little research for themselves.
US Nov sales
ps3 466k............360 770k.....Nov Total Difference is 304k
Japan Nov sales (used mediacreate weekly sales data, *note 5 weeks*)
29 Oct-04 Nov.....17,434.......17,673
05 Nov-11 Nov.....55,924........5,817
12 Nov-18 Nov.....39,198........6,525
19 Nov-25 Nov.....50,564........7,117
26 Nov-02 Dec.....37,092........6,632
.....Nov Totals.......200,212.........4 3,764.....Difference= 156,448
I have no idea what the official sales were for Europe/Others in November, but according to vg chartz if you add up the week to week sales its at about 146k difference in favor of ps3 for all of Europe/Others. I welcome any info with more reliable sales for Europe.
so by my math the two differences for ps3 156k(Japan) + 146k(Euro/Others)= ps3 outsold 360 by 302k outside of the US
360 outsold ps3 by 304k in the US alone, even with ps3 price drop for Nov.= I welcome anyone to challenge these #'s, it only took me about 20 min. and maybe I missed something or miscalculated but as far as I can see 360 STILL outsold the ps3 in total sales worldwide (2k) or its pretty damm close, it most certainly isn't anywhere close to 100k or 200k as shmee/nasim/tonad claims. If so then please link me to your sources and I will apologize for my error.
edit: vvvvvv ha ha No one cares I see, except for you *Madden, and btw you are suppose to have me on *ignore like most sonykids, yet again you take the time to respond to my post, all because *YOU dont care, try harder Madden, obviously you have no sensible response= JOY
that sure is some pretty cutting & pasting you did. And guess what? No one cares! 8D
Yeah Jokes! Like Madden said NOBODY CARES... (about the truth)
Just let it get all twisted up.. You see Sony is actually #1 and the Wii and 360 are going out of business. Probably around Jan 08 they are both closing shop..
EDIT: On topic: The whole Playstation brand is doing just fine. The PS3 has such high expectations that people are easily disappointed. Come 2 years from now no one will be questioning the PS3. Competition is good!!
To catch up to the 360 in 2008, the PS3 needs to outsell the 360 by half a million units a month. I guess anything is possible, but it's highly unlikely. If the PS3 can pull numbers along the lines of 250,000 more than Xbox 360, they will catch up in 2010. By that time the 360 will have been out for close to 5 years. While I am sure that support for the 360 will not die off like the original Xbox, the next console gen isn't that far off.
The goal of the PS3 and Xbox 360 isn't "to win" in overall console sales, the Xbox 360 needs to claim a larger part of the console market than the original Xbox did and Sony needs to keep the Playstation brand profitable while they diversify and make money on HDTV's and Blu-Ray which the PS3 promotes.
I look at this whole thing as not a battle for this gen but a way to set themselves up for next gen.....
Sony is trying to keep its crown and be as dominate as they were last gen...but....... MS and Nintendo are looking to take huge chunks out of the lead Sony had on them.....and by the looks of it they are doing a good job for the first year... In the end all the systems will be alot closer then last gen and really sets everything up for the next generation.....this is only the beginning.....this gen wont solve anything
On the other side of this where are half of these people pulln numbers out of???? cuz none of them seem to make sense or add up at alll.....*cough Tanod lol
meh o well good to see lots of games are being sold
its so absolutely HILARIOUS.... What the Jokes on him just said and seems to be PROUD of LLLLMMMMAAAAOOOOOO Delusional FANBOY:
A Playstation 3 that has only been out one year...with no HUGE games released until 2008(Uncharted and UT3 are good just no KZ2,GIF,MGS4,FF14,SOCOM,LBP, Tekken 6, Resistance 2 and about 20 others)....AND a 150$ higer price tag...wow that is whole PSP price hahaha YES A LOT.....also with all the bad media attention, and Blu Ray no having quite won the format war yet..,when it does things are going to XPLODE...but don't let the XBOTs know(it will make them lie and say the 360 has a chance of winning)
A 245$ Xbox 360(155$ cheaper....yes you got PWND SO BAD) with HALO(OMG BURN YOU DUMB BIOTCH), Bioshock, Mass Effect, Gears of War, and EVERYTHING including the "superior" XBL with 2D Text "Achievements"(sorry I couldn't help myself)... and all THE GAMING HYPE IN THE F#CKING WORLD....
AND SONY TIED MICROSOFT.
Microsft is not feeling quite as good as u little insignifcant fanboys... THEY CAN'T EVEN BEAT THE PS3 BY 2:1 IN THE U.S. ANYMORE... MUCH LESS THE REST OF WORLD AND THIS IS CHANGING CHANGING CHANING MORE AND MORE. PS3 WILL NOT BE LOSING THAT MUCH LONGER.
I hope you understand Sony's pricecut plan did EXACTLY what it needed to and they are laughing all the way to the Bank. The Xbox 360 got PWND. THE GAP WILL NEVER EVER GROW AGAIN. THE Playstation is just too big. The price will drop more and more and more. Blu ray will win... the PS3 will have a Awesome catalogue of games by the end of 2008(really already does have a very good one)
The Playstation 3 is gonna crush your dreams. I GUARANTEE YOU they did Micrsofts this month. The 360 still needs to be increasing that lead. If it won by 500,000 the PS3 couldnt still catch up EASY in the long run. IT DIDN'T. You Xbox 360 fanboys seriously are gonna lose to Sony and the PS3 AGAIN. Mark my words.
ps3 sales are in complete with sony lcd tv,s been sold with a ps3 free in europe america etc and mobile phone deals ,aol etc with ps3 free who adds these in the numbers these are not tracked
