At this rate, PS3 will surpass 360 in canada by next yr.

r2kcipher3732d ago

it depends on how they feel about either systems fall lineup.... imo sonys is better but i dont speak for everyone.

fermcr3732d ago (Edited 3732d ago )

At this rate, actually the PS3 won't surpass the Xbox next year... do your math. It's about a difference of 5k per month for the PS3. That's 60k a year (let's make 100k a year, in account of the YTD, difference of 45k in 6 months). To reach the xbox, at this rate, it will take some time (few years).

As for the Wii, they are hammering the xbox and PS3 in every territory. Even in the software sales.

sonarus3732d ago (Edited 3732d ago )

Yea but sony was getting outsold last yr...this yr they are doing the outselling. I expect them to extend the sales difference next yr as well. If the difference was just 5000 like you said, how do you think pS3 managed to cut into withing that range of the 360 despite launching a yr late. Don't forget things weren't too rosy for them last yr. You also forget 360 enjoyed a price cut in July.

If you adjust your math accordingly, we should share the same conclusions

Its about time, i always wondered why they never EVER listed Canada in sales reports.

deeznuts3732d ago

fermcr, your calculation assumes equal sales throughout the year, and doesn't take into account the huge seasonal uptick towards the end (wait, Canada celebrates the holidays too, eh?)

Differences get magnified in the latter part of the year.

Yay Canada. Consoles sell pretty awesomely in Canada.

MAR-TYR-DOM3732d ago

September the 9th, software sales will GO THROUGH THE ROOF. That is the day NHL 09 is released.

Atomic3732d ago (Edited 3732d ago )

Dead last in all territories.

the next Xbox is near. 2010 at the latest.

fermcr3732d ago (Edited 3732d ago )

From the article... "Through June, Nintendo had sold 29.62 million Wiis worldwide. That compared to worldwide sales of 19 million for the Xbox 360 and 14.4 million for the PlayStation 3"

The PS3 may surpass the xbox, but it's still far away. At this rate (pointing this out... AT THIS RATE) maybe 2010 or 2011. It may be 2010 if the PS3 starts outselling the x360 by 2:1

hay3732d ago

I think it won't be "this rate", note that Sony's rate increased and will increase in time. It just needs more AAA titles. And jRPGs! (<- my own wish ;])

karlostomy3732d ago (Edited 3732d ago )

I love it how the predictions of future sales of the ps3 by ps3 fanboys is always followed by:
"...and sales for the ps3 WILL increase in time."

hmmm. That's awesome how sony fanboys can see into the future... I certainly wish I could...

Correct me if i am wrong, but isn't there a pricecut coming for the 360 that will put it into the wii price range?

Just makes the ps3 Sales predictions seem delusional.

anyway. we'll see soon enough ;P

aggh im on fire3732d ago

In seven months ps3 outsold the 360 by 46,000. At the rate its going it going to take 5 years or more to catch the 360.
not that it really matters as its outselling it worldwide still.

alakazzam3732d ago

thats not how it works though you have to look at the trends of sales growth and the ps3 sales are increasing. its not like it ps3 is gonna outsell the 360 by 46,000 again.
