Which console will win 2010?

GR Writes: As of this writing, we're already three weeks into 2010. The "new" year is already practically ancient, and pretty soon we'll have run out of time to make wild, erratic, entirely factual predictions about things that will happen over the next 11 months. So with January nearly over, we're going for the jugular and answering the question that's on everyone's mind: between the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and PC, which gaming platform will claim victory by the end of this year.

All consoles have one hell of a line-up this year. Probably, only getting Soul Silver, Borderlands, and Heavy Rain this year, but that could change depending on if I get a job, or not, and try to get an arcade 360 for reach, and halo 3.

deadreckoning6663191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

Its gunna be very VERY close between the PS3 and the 360. We all know Sony and M$ has things up their sleeves. Until after E3, it will become much more clear who will win 2010. If I were to make a prediction, I would say the Xbox 360 will win 2010, because I truly believe M$ is crazy enough to sell an Arcade for $100.

Add Natal and Halo: Reach into the mix and thats an EPIC win. M$'s advertisement of Natal will just be too damn big. I also see the 360 outselling the PS3 for the year...again in America. As usual PS3 fanboys will go back to their "sales don't matter" motto and talk about "WORLDWIDE sales".

callahan093191d ago

The article's first sentence about the PS3 says "the cheaper 360 is still outselling the more expensive PS3" ... Uh, what sales are they looking at? That sentence is simply false, why would they print some crap like that?

MURKERR3191d ago

Deadreckoning byt your statement you believe sales in USA are more important than WORLDWIDE sales? You are exactly the type of reason why outsiders think gamers can be stupid as hell

TheDudeAbides3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

all pirates will switch to Sony now

@deadreckoning666 , u gunna b wrong man, WORLDWIDE matters

The Meerkat3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

Yes, USA and UK sales are more important than most other countries.

They are the two biggest worldwide markets.
Thats where people buy most games. Thats where the money is.
That where most Devs are.
They share a common language.

China, India, Africa, eastern europe, middle east, south america don't really feature. So which parts of the rest of the world are you pinning your hopes on?

360 has 2010 in the bag.

presto7173191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

Please keep your silly little predictions to yourself... Dumbass predictions that never turn out right.

Yeah cuz we all know you can read the future and all.

TheDudeAbides3191d ago

PS3 is winning in France, PS3 is winning in Germany, PS3 is winning in Spain, PS3 is winning in Italy, etc. All european countries surpass 360's advantage in UK

starchild3191d ago

There are basically two ways to approach this question.

One is from the perspective of which console will have the best selling games. In that regard I think the 360 has more games in its lineup that will sell very well. PS3 has some great games too, but overall I simply think the 360's lineup has the heavier hitters.

The other way to look at it is from a personal perspective. Personally there are more games in the 360's lineup that interest me and that I plan on buying than there are in the PS3's lineup.

So, from my perspective the 360 has the edge in 2010, but the PS3 will have some great stuff to offer as well. The Wii should also have plenty to offer to those that the console appeals to.

starchild3191d ago

Do you have any proof that the PS3 has outsold the 360 in those countries?

qface643191d ago

im going to win because i have all 3 consoles BWAHAHAHAHA

callahan093191d ago

How exactly do I have 2 disagrees on my comment? Last month in NPD, PS3 outsold 360, last month in Media Create, PS3 outsold 360. All of the concrete numbers we have, PS3 outsold 360 last month. So if the most recent data we have has the PS3 outselling the 360, how exactly do you go ahead and print a line like "the cheaper 360 is still outselling the more expensive PS3"?

Pistolero3191d ago

So you think we should just look at one month's sales?....in NPD the PS3 sold a little more in December and the 360 sold a bit more in November...overall though the 360 sold more throughout the year in North America....in Japan the PS3 has almost always sold more....but the thing is, that's it...we don't really know what the numbers are from the rest of the world....all we know is that the 360 still has around the same lead as it did when the PS3 came out.. so the ps3 couldn't have outsold the 360 consistently or it would have closed that gap.

The Meerkat3191d ago

"all we know is that the 360 still has around the same lead as it did when the PS3 came out.. so the ps3 couldn't have outsold the 360 consistently or it would have closed that gap."

I thought the use on logic was forbidden on N4G.

Bubble.

Imalwaysright3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

Lol both the german and french market ARE bigger than Uk market
On topic i believe that Nintendo will win again this year.

callahan093191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

The point is, they used the word "still". That's inaccurate. Considering that last month, the 360 did not outsell the PS3. Also, considering that since September, since the PS3 slim and price-drop, the PS3 has outsold the 360, not only worldwide, but yes in North America / NPD numbers specifically as well. So the trend has been for the last quarter of 2009 that the PS3 is outselling the 360. Therefore it's false to say that the 360 is still outselling the PS3. You mentioned November 2009, well that was 1 out of the last 4 months that the 360 outsold the PS3, and during that same month the PS3 outsold the 360 in Japan by a far greater margin than the 360 outsold the PS3 in North America, thus canceling out any argument you could have presented to claim the 360 was outselling the PS3 in November. The fact is that since September 2009, the 360 is NOT still outselling the PS3.

At the risk of sounding provocative, how do we know that?

ed: As to the main question - no idea. At a guess, i'd say Wii will lose some more momentum, the PS3 and Xbox360 will probably jostle positions back and forth (with price cuts etc playing a part). GT5 is the only 'big' game not released in any full version already this gen which has the potential to sell systems imo (Halo Reach will do exceptionally, but is unlikely to sell systems to folks who didn't already buy one for Halo 3/ODST). And i'd say Natal is probably more likely to be game changer than the Sony wands, but it will depend on hardware install bases and prior momentum (being almost a year away) and a thousand other factors leading in as to how much that changes things overall.

UnwanteDreamz3191d ago

Who won last year and what was the prize?

Oh thats right this is a make believe contest that exists only in the minds of little fankids.

pcz3191d ago

If you say otherwise you are a deluded moron.

Riddicrash3191d ago

My vote goes to the consumer, they win every year :)

pippoppow3191d ago

ME2 reviews come out and pro360 sites hype the 360 up. Who would have guessed?!

ForROME3191d ago

@MURKERR

I am so sick of this worldwide sales, I have always said SONY will win globally as well however; who cares

There are a lot of things over here that we buy, that we dont sit and go oh yea but Japan doesnt like that product as much, it doesnt sale over there so maybe I shouldnt get it

A win for MS has already happened, they came in and took what matters to SONY most, MARKET SHARE, no one would have though they could even get 10% market share and look at them, SONYs Pie has shrunk and they were arrogant in the beginning and paid the price and had a high price

Saaking3191d ago

Overall sales= Nintendo. There's no doubt about it.

Overall best TRUE exclusives: Sony. The 360's lineup is bigger, yes, but it pales in comparison to the huge PS3 lineup.

Darrius Cole3191d ago

The 360 has half the lead it had when the PS3 first came out. When the PS3 released the 360 had a one year lead of about 10 million units; now the 360 has a lead of about 5 million units.

TheBand1t3191d ago

I think all of you care too much which Corporation will 'win'.

Oh, nvm. It must've been a rhetorical question.

I LOVE GAMES3191d ago

ALL consoles will win in 2010,so stop miking this stupid articles.

starchild3191d ago

I personally think the 360 has the better lineup, but if you like the PS3 lineup better that's fine too.

toaster3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

lol Filthy console peasants always fighting against each other while PC leads the way in every genre on the market.

2010 will probably be a good year for all three though. Reach will be huge, I am looking forward to Gran Turismo 5, and Nintendo will probably reveal something spectacular.

Nihilism3191d ago

hahaha, couldn't have said it better myself

that's classic :D

Udidntlistenpunk3191d ago

The other console has no games cos its games are either crap or multi platform.

Yea, definitely a rhetorical question.

talltony3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

So def ps3 in 2010. The last guardian, agent, Gow 3 will all impress me, I am even looking forward to mag. Heavy rain and Gt5 will be pretty much guarranteed to be amazing as well. But the 360 got reach, wake and splinter cell. I dont really care about rpgs so not really anxious for mass effect 2. But you see the quantity is almost the same it just depends on what kind of games you are looking forward to more. I think this will be ps3's and 360 best year ever.

kissmeimgreek3191d ago

I think 2010 is going to be the first year that we really see the 360 and PS3 go head to head with each other. With last years terrible 360 line up and the ever blossoming ps3 line up, I think this will be the make or break year for either side. MS's chance to show us what the 360s still got left, and to see just how far the PS3 still has to go.

Doctor Phil3189d ago

....will NOT be Nathal.

The next big thing will be 3D-gaming. Sony's PS3 is ready for 3D gaming and 3D movies - only needs i firmware update. Sony will launch it's first 3D TVs within a few months.

That is why I personally think that Sony will prevail in the end....but hey.....im just a Doctor.

capjacksparrow3191d ago

While I know both systems will do well I'll have to give it to the PS3. And as for hardcore gamers, SONY will defintiely take care of them with both normal games and motion sensing games. I have a feeling Natal is going to be 90% casual, 10% hardcore. SONY will probably 50/50.

kissmeimgreek3191d ago

you may be right about that. but i think that sonys overall ps3 lineup will be 10% motion 90% dualshock. Not that thats a bad thing it just seems like sony arent expecting it to be as big as MS expects Natal to be. Which worries me because that could really jeopardise their motion controllers appearance and value to consumers.

Just my 2 cents...

deadreckoning6663191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

"Not that thats a bad thing it just seems like sony arent expecting it to be as big as MS expects Natal to be."

Yep, ur right. But the reason M$ believes Natal will be bigger than the Wands is because its a REVOLUTION, not an evolution. I believe Natal will be crap for hardcore games, but we have to wait and see what happens. We haven't seen the final builds of EITHER the Wands or Natal so to make judgements now would be stupid.

All we know is that M$ will advertise Natal more than Sony advertises the Wands.

ClownBelt3191d ago

It would be funny if Nintendo suddenly steals all the fame this year.

Nihilism3191d ago

why is that, they already steal all the profit and the highest sales....
