Xbox 360 is only console to grow sales this year, Microsoft says

Microsoft said sales of its Xbox 360 game console grew 20% in the first half of 2009, citing figures from NPD Group. The Redmond, Wash., technology company crowed that the data show it was the only major console to increase hardware sales this year (implying that sales of Nintendo's Wii and Sony's PlayStation 3 were down from last year).

Microsoft credits its growth to the $199 price tag for the basic version of the Xbox 360. The Wii is $249, and the PS3 sells for $399.

But sales do matter and yes xbox360 games look better"
Xbox 360 has the best versions of multiplatforms which makes up 99% of you gaming library.Also Forza 3, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell,Gears of War 3 and I bet Halo: Reach don't look too shabby either.Seriously PS3 sales are in the toilet!
WOW!The Few, The Proud, The... PS3 Owners?Lets look at this with logic. Sony electronic sales are in the toilet. And the PS3 sales are worst then this time last year and getting worse by the week. And this is even with Sony's big games God of War 3 GT 5 not coming out until 2010.Sony fanboys are [email protected] to mention the big dog of Sony was supposed to be Killzone 2 it has failed to even sell more then 2 million copies in the US to date.What really might or could happen is the PS3 may gimp across the finish line after this gen in last place if Sony is lucky.

Why are you such a douche? Got get a PS3 and stop being a fanboy. The PS3 is a great console and it's exclusives do look awesome, and even someone who doesn't have a PS3 can appreciate it, not bash it.

See once again the ps3 was outsold in america for the 6 month in arrow. and all you ppl say its only in america, well 360 is crushing now in europe and japan, who cares about japan, so far the totals for japan are ps3 with 508,355, and 360 with 217,832, so really japan does not matter because the ps3 gets out sold every month in america by like 75,000-150,000 each month, so if you look at it america makes up for japan and then some and still gives 360 the overall lead, MY PREDICTION AT THE END 360 55.6million, ps3 47.4 million
