You see, this is exactly the same as the other article. I really don't see this as news worthy. The PS3 outsells the 360 in Europe and the 360 outsells the PS3 in America. It's been like that since the beginning. So writing about it yet again, isn't news. News is supposed to be interesting and thought provoking, not repetitive. As banal as it would be, 'All consoles sold well this generation' would be a more interesting article...

To the disagrees: Are you disagreeing with PS3 outsells the 360 in Europe, the 360 outsells the PS3 in America, the fact that I think it's not news worthy or 'All consoles sold well this generation' would make a more interesting story?

like that the PS3 has outsold the 360 worldwide for all the year... i know it's not a news too. :P

The only counter point I could manage(Playing devils advocate here) is that these are all different websites and/or weekly and monthly updates. To the websites themselves these are just singular local posts, even though they add up here.(on n4g)

And The people posting them here are most likely trying to up their status here on n4g so they can approve stories... resulting in constant non-new "news".

Oh, I realize that this is an aggregating site and that these are localised version of the news. I'm just saying that news should be more interesting than this. I don't care who won, who lost, how many by or who they beat, I'm just bored with articles like this, regardless of the company they are talking about. This is purely an agnostic opinion.

The PS3 outsells the 360 in Europe
The PS3 outsells the 360 in Far East
The PS3 outsells the 360 in Middle East

The 360 outsells the PS3 in America

I agree.. no news here, 360 outsells the PS3 in America but the PS3 outsells the 360 in the WORLD!

Cam9772807d ago

Exactly. If you ask me, this is quite a useless article.

where do you live?

I live in America - what do sells otherwise matter to me as a consumer?

LNDCalling2807d ago (Edited 2807d ago )

@MadMen what does where I live matter?

What does matter is this false interpretation impressed on the lesser knowledgeable public that the PS3 doesn't sell as well as the Xbox360 when the actual global year-on-year figures suggest otherwise.

This maters because if this falsehood becomes a matter of 'fact' to the public in general then it could effect PS3 sales which could impact Sony’s investment in their gaming division.. the repercussions of this would not only effect Sony’s faithful but in fact all gamers and it isn’t something any true gamer would want to see happen!

Trust this helps clarify?

really? last year, 2011, the 360 ended up selling more WORLDWIDE then the ps3. Will probably do the same this year.

Ben_Grimm2807d ago

The 360 also outsells the PS3 in UK which happens to be in Europe.

I think we have to consider that the some of these regions the PS3 outsells is very small. To say the WORLD is stretching it a bit too far. Especially since there are a lot of places in the world that don't even have ps3/360 or Wii.

Not to get technical or specific but this trend on N4G of saying "the world" is a bit silly.

The PlayStation brand is obviously the most popular worldwide, this isn't news.

Positive news in the fields

Its nice to see that the Nintendo 3D entertainment system is the worlds go to device for dedicated on the go gaming. If recent trends are factored into the equation, Nintendo is looking to further the sales lead throughout the 2012 holiday season going into 2013 and beyond. Thanks to very affordable strategic pricing, and many high priority high demand exclusive offerings down the pipeline. I expect the recently announced Mario Kart 7 Nintendo 3DS entertainment system bundle to play a major factor in furthering the already healthy install base in the coming months.

Rated E For Everyone

LX-General-Kaos that isn't on the script. Didn't you get the revised copy?

vikingland12807d ago

My wife has the 3DS and I have the Vita. I like the Vita alot and I am not normally a handheld gamer. I actually think the Vita is amazing for a handheld system. I hope it does better in the future.
