Xbox 360, Wii: "Piling It On" Against Sony in Game Console Wars

Jim Goldman writes, "There's been a fair amount of controversy gripping the video games console wars, with each of the three major players locked in a pitched battle for market supremacy."

"Based on NPD's total month sales, Microsoft appears not to have outsold PS3 in November by 2 to 1. But wow, with these overall numbers, it appears very possible that Microsoft may have been accurate for the week of sales including Black Friday. And if not completely accurate, then close. That's gotta hurt Sony as it continues to try to paint PS3 as more of a success than it really is."

"Sony cut the price of the device as well, and while it's clear--based on Sony's own sales data --that the lower price helped boost sales, the console is still a distant third to Nintendo and Microsoft."

The story is too old to be commented.

Totally agree with you. People take this stuff way to personal. They all act like they get payed by them. Oh well now the question is when will the flame war start.

Well, maybe I won't sleep that well, because I just laugh my heart out when I read this part of the news.

"What's surprising to me is how much of a horse-race Microsoft is making out of this with Nintendo."

If this is not a totally blind Microsoft reporter, I'm wondering what it is... Quite a horse race indeed. Microsoft horse had a one year lead, and is already behind Nintendo!!! I hope this guy is not betting his Microsoft paycheck on horses : )

Anything they do has got to be evil. All they do is pay people off. Whah whah whah. Stop crying about Microsoft. Sony is NOT a small company, I think they can take care of themselves.

You guys with your Microsoft comspiracy theories really are begining to sound desperate and pathetic. Please....Give it a rest.

Foliage3509d ago

You can whine all you want "oohWii" but Microsoft is in bed with NBC. All you have to do is type MSNBC in a web search to find out.

Real Gambler3509d ago

Nobody said anything about a "comspiracy", conspiracy, or anything like that. I would bet a lot of money that Microsoft didn't ask that reporter to print such a stupid comment. But being on NBC/Microsoft payroll, this poor guy probably thought it was a good thing to do. I'd bet he is not allowed to talk about consoles anymore.

Now, as far as defending Sony, you're right, nobody need too. Some guys are here to read news. Some guys are here to post bad news only. Some guys are here just so they can debate the inside out of their favorite consoles. And the list goes on, and on, and on. What are you here for?

I love how some people view US sales as Worldwide sales, when Sony and MS actually are about equal in sales worldwide. The PS3 gained on the 360 150k just in Japan alone. That's not even factoring in Europe, where it's believed they are outselling the 360 there as well.

wageslave3509d ago

No one is confused here -- USA is not the only market, just the largets and most important by far... that's all.

Give it a rest, as a platform Xbox 360 is taking in more than half of industry cash for this generation -- that is hardware and software sales.

And, whatever you fools think, THAT is what will bring the games. Profit on Xbox 360 brings more games. That's why sales are important -- and that is why Xbox 360 is dominating, and everyone except the Sony fans on N4G damn well know it.

PS3 only has the Wii in those territories to worry about. I would say the pile is on another console in both of the mentioned territories. The burden is very light on Playstation 3 these days, I must say. Anyone who even thinks of disagreeing is lying to themselves. Who was outsold last week worldwide? It sure wasn't Sony.

edit: to future posters, don't even bother to comment on this article. I am laughing out loud at how these little trolls think this is the "big picture".
