It's 270k units, calm down

gamingdroid2170d ago

Yeah, I do wonder as that 270k accounts for 49% of the market share for the month. I guess the shining light is the increase in "decreasing" market.

We need a new generation now!

@Gamingdroid... well said! It really isn't a glowing NPD at all. I suppose the only silver lining MS could take away from that report was they were 49% of the market. And for investors sake, lets just keep quiet on that whole its on the decline part. LOL

Wait, so 270k units is bad now or am I missing something?

I agree that we need new consoles asap, but that doesn't mean sales are s*** to jump out of this gen like in desperation mode :P

This Gen Microsoft played its cards well and I tip my hat towards them. They dominated the US market this time around because of the many mistakes Sony made at the beginning of this Gen. Next Gen however we'll see if Sony learned from the mistakes they made. Hopefully they did and get back to the top of the throne because i really enjoyed when they ruled the last two Gens. They got the games and the hardware but they need to lock on to features that people want. Cant Wait for next Gen!!!

they made no mistakes.... Mcdonalds sells a bunch of cheesburgers doesnt mean quality it just means cheap kids.

This worldwide or just in America?

darren_poolies2170d ago

Oh I didn't know that, thanks!

Also love getting disagrees for asking a simple question.

Dlacy13g2170d ago (Edited 2170d ago )

Umm... "Jan #NPD shows " you tell me, what do you think that means given NPD is a North American Market Research Company? Or were you just hear to point out NPD =/= World like so many others?

edit: @darren_poolies have a +bub for a legit question. You don't see to many of those in these threads these days. sorry for the mistake in tone.

darren_poolies2170d ago (Edited 2170d ago )

I didn't know NPD was a North American Market Research Company. No trolling involved, just a simple question so don't get your knickers in a twist.

edit: @Dlacy13g Thanks and fair enough, I understand with the amount of stupid fanboys on here so no problem. :)

ZippyZapper2170d ago

This is just America but they also have the lead world wide :)

had to say it
