VG Chartz reports, the updated Worldwide Sales for the week ending Dec. 29th, as follows: Hardware: DS: 1, 163,851 WII: 962,683 PSP: 535,769 PS3: 448,491 PS2: 396,665 360: 337,322
Is the 360 slipping?
expect PS3 to catch x360 this year XMAS sales for 2007 (november --december) on a worldwide basis looks like this:- PS3: 3,297,646 360: 3,078,406 RESULT :_ PS3 wins by 218 000 units. CONGRATS PS3 for the victory :) NOTE :- even with the inflated x360 NA and FRANCE numbers PS3 beats it by 200+k FANTASTIC!!!!! with MGS4 ,GT5 and FF13 that is waranteed However i expect lot of PS2 owners to convert to PS3 when GTA4 is launched in NA JUST to let others know that PS3 outsold x360 by as much 110 000 units in worlwdide sales last week FANTASTIC @goodfella and Rikiatsu --why arent u approving the thread?
PS2: 396,665 360: 337,322 There are more gamers buying PS2s for 130 dollars right now than 360s worldwide. Those almost 400k people could have moved to a next gen system for a low as 270 bucks and instead bought a system for these franchises/developers: Metal Gear Solid Final Fantasy Gran Turismo Singstar Ratchet and Clank Jak and Daxster Team ICO SOCOM Sly Cooper etc. Those games could have spent just 150 bucks more for a 360 and passed on the system. It should be obvious which system they will buy when they finally get themselves 1080p HDTVs and PS3 price cuts at 300,200, etc in the coming years. The 360 sales in all three regions look almost exactly like last gen with the Xbox. It is hard to imagine the 360 selling better than the first Xbox almost entirely on US sales. The 360 is benefiting from the insanely high defect rate and 360 owners rebuying new models in the US hoping for a system that will stop dying but that is probably a wash with former Xbox owners passing on the 360 this gen because of hardware defects. After Bungie,Bioware, and Bizarre left Microsoft as exclusive 360 developers for multiplatform development it pretty much just leaves Microsoft with Rare and Lionhead. Microsoft sure as hell isn't going to be attracting any of those existing 125 million PS2 owners with that anemic first party lineup over the next five years.
y? i already explained it in my first post! 360 will be last and wii will be a strong second, i believe wii sales will continue to be strong for another 2 years! for 360 its only going to get worst in market share! i will be very surprised if 360 passed 30 million console!! and i believe wii will reach up to 80 million and ps3 120+ million in its life cycle! thats my prediction like it or not! EDIT: 360 is being outsold by an 8 years old technology console(ps2), although 360 is entering its 3rd year, i wonder what does that indicates? is it positive signs for Devs??
PS3 is outselling 360 2:1 i expect the trend to Continue and increase in 2008
Curious how did you arrive to the 2 to 1 Ratio PS3 is outselling 360, when it outsold by a reported 100K or so this past week.
I'm a bit of a Sony fanboy myself, but I don't see where you're getting this 2:1 ratio from. They sold 1.3 times as many PS3's. That's far from 2:1.
oh boy the ps3 is almost outselling the 360 2 to 1 is realling looking good for sony system, eversince the price drop the ps3 has been selling very very good.
ps3 and blu-ray go hand in hand, as blu-ray gets more popular more people want the ps3. As the big ps3 games start rolling out more people know about blu-ray.
system that doesn't work sold 17 million how come the PS3 has suddenly been beating it every week and if it did; could it have to do with that its the same people that had there system breakdown on them like the 11th time like that one article.
MS sold 16m x360s to customers BUT in essence they shipped 17.7m to RETAILERS However X360's actual sales might be a bit lower. Vgchartz hasnt adjusted their NA data for October and November (inflated x360 sales by 180 000 and 60 000 units for October and November respectively) Vg also hasnt updated their x360 french sales data x360 should be around 500 0000 and PS3 around 450 000 (jeux france and TF1 reported that SONY sold 400k PS3s back in October in France)
I was wondering the same thing. Also VG-charts has been off by 20-30 thousand just in a single market alone! in the past. That was the greatest number(s) they've been off I'v seen(UNDER COUNTED THE 360 AND OVER COUNTED THE PS3). It will never end when the news is going MSFT's way VGC is wrong, its truth when it shows the PS3 doing good.
Personally, I think the numbers are good guess-estimate, better than nothing. I'm sure there off by 10'000's +/- on all numbers, but it's still better than nothing. VGChartz all year showed 360 out selling PS3 pretty much in all markets, and now the reserve is happening...
Either way the PS3 is still 400$... this is only the beginning... no games have dropped....its the price that the 360 debuted at... and its still winning. This is going to get worse and worse as games drops and PS3 price will drop again in 2008. Sony knows what they are doing and they aren't on Microsoft's schedule. They look at how long they are seeling the PS3, how many the want to sell, the price and how its selling and they are making it happen. Good for the PS3. This is only the vey beggining. This is why I beilve the "Ultimate" is fake. They will get destroyed. LMAO Japan Hardware isnt even included yet... PS3 is gonna win by even more than this! PS3 outsold the 360 by 110,000 with out japans numbers added. If this keeps up the PS3 will already be outselling the 360 by over half a million a month hahahahahahahahahahahahahhaaha hahahahahahahahah OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG SUCK IT LOSING 3RD PLACE XBOTS(sorry Japans numbers are added....but the Xbots still got Sony's nuts on their forehead!!! You guys are gonna get T-Bagged for 9 more years and I can't wait!)LOLOLOL bill Gates said Baboons!!! hahahahah Baboons! O NO here they come!!!!!(pic I found on the web of the Xbots)
lol...dude that picture is funny as hell. you made that?
that pic is so awesome, but you forgot Zhuk! and the artical has the ps3 outselling 360 by 110k with japanese number included by the way.
IROTFLMFAO....AHHAHAHAHHAHHHAH HAHHAHAHHAHHAHHAHAHHAHHA I set that picture up as my desktop background just so I get a huge laugh just before I come on this site to read these BABOON's comments..AHAHHAA Thanks bro.
funniest post all year
You friend deserve some bubbbles. ' ' the crapbox 3fixme ubber fanboy force ' ' !!!!!!!! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha !!!!!
but i didnt know it will start in 2007! and by the way u heard it first from MR-Arabic first, i believe ps3 will sell more than ps2 or around it! y do i think it? because look at ps2, it came out first it was under power compare to xbox and gamecube it didnt have online support and it wasnt the best DVD player, it didnt support DivX etc ps3 is really integrating everything possible with ps3, i means it almost like a powerful PC and better! it has huge potential thanks to the cell and cooperation between the cell and RSX which gives more room to graphics advancement! free online and the best blue player! think of it when ps3 becomes 200-300 price range with all the huge hit games released and with blue ray is the winner. there will be more reason to buy a ps3 than the ps2 had!
Anyway, I try not to put too much into VG chartz. According to Microsoft they've sold 17.7 million since launch. I don't trust that crap either.
17.7 shipped to retailers.
lightning became an xbox fanboy
I think sony might reach their goal of selling 13 mil ps3 by march. What do you guys think? will they make it?
I thought their sales goal was 11m, which I believe they will make by march.
I am pretty sure the Sony target was 11 million by April 1s - the end of the current quarter. The PS3 is about 9 million worldwide right now. January, February, March is three months or 12 weeks. So the PS3 would need to sell about 160k a week worldwide to hit that number. Sony should hit the 11 million worldwide by April 1st fairly comfortably looking back over the weekly sales numbers for last year.
Sony goal is not to sell 13 million units by March. It is to ship 13 million units by March
the way every weeks sales have been pickin up I wouldnt be surprised if it did. I think with one of their long awaited games being released around that time that would increase sales even more. It seems like they would need a system seller game to be release to pick up steam even more to reach the 13m goal. Lets just wait and see how the following weeks are to see if they in fact do come closer and closer to their goal.
oh btw, http://vgchartz.com/hwlaunc... this clearly shows that theres momentum going on with PS3 sales (according to VGchartz), if it continues, then it will come in 2nd place overall by the end of the year.
