Don't waste your time with this like I did.

GrieverSoul3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

Too late!
I read it and this doesnt state what the headline says!
Maybe, just maybe, an unbiased writer would say that the WII demolishes everyone instead of going out at the X360\PS3 war! Or on a biased report something along the line had WII beat X360! XD

Fishy Fingers3812d ago

Well the PS3/360 comparisons draws the hits. Especially when you throw in words like "demolished".

Funny, first Modern Warfar 2 screens get a tenth the interest of "these" articles. Somethings twisted there.

table3812d ago

He just bases the title on what the people want to hear. We are all guilty of it as long as we get our gaming news at N4G.

360 is doing great in the US. Fat people need fat controllers I guess... hehe

solidt123812d ago

Basically there were no big games (compared to last year) for the month so sales were slower than last year. That's all he said basically.

IdleLeeSiuLung3812d ago

Completely flamebait title and unnecessary.

ShabzS3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

riiight... and we care coz ... ?... check out the mw 2 vids and screens much more interesting gamers NEWS there ... let the suits handle the sales reports

Venomish3812d ago

hmmm, if xbox sales come off better than ps3, xbox fans can enjoy looking at the numbers while ps3 users enjoy the massive line up of quality exclusive titles.

heroicjanitor3812d ago

Don't bother with this. From reading the title I assumed the 360 had a big jump and the ps3 went down, but it is the same as every month, except both went down about the same.

Lifendz3812d ago

Hasn't 100k been the usual gap between 360 and PS3? Since when does that constitute a demolishing number?

ultimolu3812d ago

Life...I'm wondering the same thing...

pixelsword3812d ago

where one of the writers flipped and said he hated the PS3 and mgs4?

kevnb3812d ago

for the price, they sure are a rip off.

Kill Crow3812d ago

the people saying don't pay this any attention are the same ones HORING over the "In Japan PS3 sells 20K more than xbox" threads ....

JokesOnYou3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

but when ps3 outsold wii by 3, 4, or 10k depending on the particular week you look at over the last month or 2 in Japan and it was described by some pro-sony sites as "dominating Japan" I got alot of disagree's for saying its far from "dominating" the wii, especially when you consider how far behind ps3 is in Japan. lol, now I bet alot of those same folks who were beating their chests for those headlines now are crying about this one, lmfao the irony of it all is just laughable, I guess some will always want it both ways.

On a final note Pachter doesn't know shiii, I think it throws darts at numbers to come up with these predictions, lmfao

JOY

MmaFanQc3812d ago

its more like "wii demolished 360"

Sarcasm3812d ago

360 demolished kicked in the nuts baseball with screws bamboo to the nails tore the limbs on PS3 in April.

lol seriously, we live in a sad sad world where a $400 console that sells 175k on a slow month is considered "demolished"

tawak3812d ago

oh man you should have said it earlier =L

The Dude3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

Thank you Microsoft for demolishing the PS3 every month and thanks to you sony fanboys for denying it month by month and that sales dont matter. LOL :P

cherrypie3812d ago

Its funny that the first 10 comments are crying over the word "demolished".

When all rational discussion about the present and future state of the industry w/r/t Xbox 360 and PS3 marketshare is the 100ft Elephant in the room that the PS3 fans want to distract you from.

Where are the cries of "2009 Year of the PS3!!1one!"

Hey everyone, look over there!! DISTRACT DISTRACT DISTRACT

All Time Greatness3812d ago

lol It's so hilarious.

I can't wait for E3, NPD will be fun too. ; )

Jake11113812d ago

I have all 3 systems... Anyone who has even caught a glimpse of KZ2 would realize they are missing out on an amazing game if they dont own a PS3.

There is no other system required this gen besides a PS3. It is overall the best on the market.

With the motion stick coming soon, the system has it all!

SONY ROCKS!

The Dude3812d ago

@Jake111

Anyone that has played alot of shooters will tell you Killzone 2 is an average shooter at best. You sony fanboys have been killzowned.

That was funny. You have to remember Jason, Sony exclusives have "long legs" and sell over a really, really long time. They don't have to sell in order to be good games. More people bought third party games attach rate something? Sales don't mean anything unless it's Sony that is ahead anyway.

"Michael Pachter just put out his US console sales estimate"

These aren't the official NPD numbers. Those drop on Thursday. These are Pachter's guesses. Nothing more.

Sony Rep3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

demolished? haha. The 360 outselling the PS3 by the same margin as last month is "demolished" this month?

Oh. lookey here... "Japanese console hardware totals in April"

Hmm... "PS3 - 108,530 Wii - 67,116 360 - 27,381"

http://www.nintendoeverythi...

So, in Japan around 100k more PS3's sold than 360's in April. I wonder how... 360 - 292K PS3 - 184K-- roughly 100k, equates in to that ever extending lead... Goes a little something like this....

"HW sales from January 2009 to March 2009 X360 : 1.960.300 PS3 : 1.762.100 Wii : 3.898.200"

http://www.n4g.com/industry...

The 360 only outselling the PS3 by a measly 200k at $199.99, worldwide??? pre PS3 price cut??? haha. lol worthy

You were doing well until you "laughed" at the 360's price point, then you just showed that you're a fanboy, exactly like whoever wrote the title to this article.
Heaven forbid that anyone uses the term "draw"...

sack_boi3812d ago

No matter how you spin them, facts are facts. The X360 is outselling the PS3.
Build a bridge and get over it.

BTW - the PS3 enjoys sales from all three of the major gaming markets vs the 360 sales in mainly two of the three major markets... so for the 360 to still outsell the PS3 worldwide, even with the price difference, is still an accomplishment. Isn't the more expensive PS3 the home console with all those extra features included vs the 360 after all? Don't forget all those PS3 exclusives either... yet it's still being outsold by the 360.

Anon19743812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

By this point last year the PS3 had moved almost a million more consoles than the 360 worldwide from Jan to the start of May and by the end of the year the 2 consoles ended up in a tie for the calendar year.

Just goes to show how quickly sales can turn around.

Edit: Disagrees? Are you perhaps suggesting that sales are constants that never change?

testerg353812d ago

Don't you mean "at this rate, when will the PS3 ever catch up to the 360"? 360 already has a lead and its the PS3 who's trying to catch up.

FF7numbaone3812d ago

theres no need to catch up to 360, I'm 100 percent sure ps3 will outlast 360 knowing Microsoft.

cherrypie3812d ago (Edited 3812d ago )

It has been said time and time again -- but the ratios/numbers not specifically released -- that the vast majority of Xbox 360s are the Pro model, followed by a smaller number of Arcade and fewest yet the Elite.

What does this mean? That the __AVERAGE__ price for an Xbox 360 is not $199 but somewhere nearer the full price of the pro.

What does this matter? Frankly, not much. The problems with the PS3 run vastly deeper than just it's price point.

nycredude3812d ago

Dude, that doesn't change the fact that American cars suck.

And have you taken into account the amount of discounts they are giving. You can get like up to 30% off at some of the retailers.

Brixxer6003812d ago

I live in the UK and could only wish that i could get my hands on some American cars easily , New Camaro for sure , i'd also love a new Mustang or Dodge Challenger , i think American muscle cars are some of the finest cars out there , it's not all about performance ,a car has to have the complete package , looks and sound play a huge part and just listen to an American muscle car , none of that whining turbo crap , just a pure raw beastly growl .

solidt123812d ago

@nycredude So you want to play that game. All car company are giving incentives, but The only cars people are willing to pay a markup on are American cars ( Camaro, Challenger ). The cars rolling out of Detroit today are as good or better than the imports. Now back to talking about games. Sorry I had to rant.

If that's the case, Wii pulverized and annihilated 360.

mintaro3812d ago

Dude so that means it practically killed the PS3.

:)

sack_boi3812d ago

It killed the PS3, revived it, then killed it again.

ShabzS3812d ago

revived it for the third time... tortured it and then burned it

FF7numbaone3812d ago

lol 360 owners dont like to hear that wii outsells their console at the same prices.

Their proud to say the $400 ps3 is getting Murdered by the 250 wii, killed by 299/199 360.

Either way they spinning it the wii and 360 are in the same price range.
