Console: PS3 - 3,289,620 (45.1%) X360 - 2,390,410 (32.7%) Wii - 1,619,662 (22.2%) Handheld: 3DS - 3,596,793 (70.4%) PSV - 1,513,876 (29.6%) ------- PSP - 871,652 (65%) DS - 766,810 (35%)
that the ps3 would eventually sell more than the 360? I mean really...legit question. Just because it does, does that some how invalidate the 360 and what it has done for this console generation? I am reminded of the Genesis and it's time in the light before, during and after the SNES launched. It was still able to hold it's own and garner a solid following. Times were different then unlike now. If you play a system then it had better be the 'right' one or else you will get no respect. So to us who choose to play them all...what do we get? PS3 selling well is great for Sony. 360 selling well is great for MS. Wii selling well is great for Nintendo. Solid games being released for all 3 is great for all of us regardless of system preference. 5-6 years into this gen and the ugliness of things still shows. No chance it will change come next gen or the one after that. Play the 'video games' not the sales games. You earn trophies/achievements for your efforts.
vgchatrz....mmmmm.... virtually guessing chartz?
I cant believe the PS3 is doing so well in "America". I wonder how its doing in America?
Did you mean America = world?
You will never know...........but yes.
America does represent the single largest gaming market in the world. So the idea of America equals the world could be correct if you view it as it takes the rest of the world combined to equal America.
You could only take that view if you are Microsoft as they sell about half of their consoles in the US. For the others the US is less than half, if I recall for PS3 it's only about a third of sales. So in other words the 360 is far more dependent on US sales than the others.
Looks like the ps3 is going to catch the 360 in sales this year. Fora_is_king and Logicwins must really be hating it right now.
Looks like Forza is king is approaching some... Turbulance :) .... Oh wait Forza isnt a flight simulator, damn it >:'(
Between the 360 and PS3, those PS3 numbers are pretty good for a console that was a year late to the scene with a huge price tag.
I wouldn't make that claim just yet. PS3 was leading for most of the year last year, but the 360 had a great holiday season to be #1 world wide in sales in 2011. It could happen again with Halo 4 on the horizon. We also don't know what MS might announce at E3 that could possibly release in the fall/winter, they could also announce a price drop as well, but Sony could also. We'll just have to see how it plays out.
They can't spend half a billion dollars marketing every year. Besides, the honeymoon is over; people know the quality of Kinect now.
Why in the name of titties and beer are people STILL arguing about marketshare and sales? Jesus Christ both the 360 and the PS3 are now older than the previous generation consoles were when they were replaced. We're gearing up for an E3 that may just announce at least one of the next generation consoles with an almost certain guarantee that next year we'll know about both the PS3 and 360's successor's. Face it - we're at the end of this console's lifecycle and both the PS3 and 360 have done about as well as each other. Sure, the PS3 came out later and sure it was more expensive at first but who gives a crap about what happened in 2005 or 2006 - it's 2012 now and both consoles have managed to score a blatant TIE. Get over it, your console wasn't better, but it wasn't worse either - it was just as good as the competition and frankly, that's an incredible feat in itself.
so i guess these #'s are legit 2day. this site is funny. i wonder where the trust in VG has come from all of a sudden.
even if they aren't legit they are usually in the ball park. Though the ps3 and 360's total numbers don't look like they've been updated. I'm pretty sure they've been 65 and 63 million since the begining of the year.
Find it funny people only use that "vchart is reliable today" when is world wide and not America lol
As expected, PlayStation®3 has dominated the charts once again. Obtaining the mark of the highest console sold throughout 2012 so far. That trend is unlikely to change because it has been this way since 1996. Dark Sniper has been with PlayStation since the beginning. For those that haven't jumped in, PlayStation gives you the realm of award winning software and an online ecosystem that is unmatched. Dark Sniper is grateful to be a part of PlayStation nation as he witnesses over 3 million new buyers experience the world of PlayStation®3. This is a time to celebrate as Dark Sniper invites all of his Sony Snipers to bask in the heart of victory. As always, job well done Sony. $niper youtube.com/therealdarksniper Twitter:@therealdsniper
Well Said. PS3 is still selling worldwide better then 360. If they give it a price drop at €180 then its game over for 360.
Brilliant.... If only I were that creative.
Kinda funny how slowly the comment section for this submission is growing.. Oh, i see...these are worldwide numbers.
you mean that when usa numbers are showen it get alot of comments while worldwide don't get the same amount of comments ??? lol if true
These numbers are to be ignored they're from VGCHARTZ just made up and are never accurate. All the other gaming forums ignore them and aren't allowed to be posted there.
HOLY CRAP Good Numbers For SONY
The trend will continue mainly because M$ already has a cheaper console on the market. The 4gb 360. Even though the PS3 has always had the higher priced console, it still manages to outsell the 360 year after year. This is why M$ is coming out with a kinect bundle for $99 dollars. M$ is hopes that this will give them a surge in sells. What makes you think that Sony won't drop the price on the PS3.
Wait until the holiday season comes and VGChartz numbers show the 360 outselling the PS3. At that point, anybody even suggesting the numbers are even remotely accurate will be bombarded with disagrees, the rumor bar will be in the red, and claims that "VGChartz always undertracks the PS3" will be made. This same cycle happens every year. The double standards here are quite extraordinary.
But yet the PS3 still sells more, what's your point?
