The official June NPD data is set to release later this afternoon, but Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg just revealed that the Xbox 360 is the best-selling console for the month.
Not surprising, it did get a new redesign.
this guy only talks about NPD when the xbox sells more lol
Yeah because losers ( take Sony for instance) always run their mouths when they're loosing right ?
@lachance give us an example a direct quote and link would be nice
For those interested an 88% increase (as outlined by Greenberg) would be 453,000 units year over year for June. Fanboys below, please stop your whining, who cares who sold more or if Greenberg is a douche?
I thought it was 365,848 compared to last month. Not year to year. I could be wrong though.
Here comes the tortoise!
Exactly. I wonder how long it will go on, though?
i know you, your company, and all your fanboys can sleep well again at night knowing your purchases were well justified. again who cares about sales when let me make it clear that NONE OF THE 3 COMPANIES will be leaving the business for quite some time. now can we please stop posting these stupid sales articles and post actual game news articles?
Actual news? on n4g? HOW DARE YOU BLASPHEME!
on this site the PS3 fans out number the 360 fans but Xbox 360 news is always the most hottest.
no stuff like this http://n4g.com/news/561153/... gets the hottest. At least as far as I can tell.
thats because all the sony extremists keep trolling the 360 articles with their insecurities. edit: speaking of insecure fanboys look at the post right below mine lol
No... Honestly I think for a lot of them, it's payback. Internet time must be short; not that long ago the PS3 was the dog on N4G. LOL! Anywho...Congrats MS.
your 360 extremist fanboyism is showing and I mean it's showing hard. Fanbot.
It's not "ps3 fans outnumber 360 fans", it's just that gamers prefer ps3, so on unbiased sites, like this one (news only, from all kind of blogs, sites, etc), you will see more ps3, and it's just pure logic, when you consider value and games. by the way, for the xbox blind fans believing xbox sell better than ps3, just check the facts before enjoying to much the good americans sells for new design : http://www.vgchartz.com/art... how guys like candystop, applegate, uneducated liars and trolls, can have bubbles ? (probably because of others liars giving them for propaganda purpose :)) candystop, delusional liar in denial : "ps4 is going to be announced soon folks right after Sony announces another desperate price cut" lol, best games, best hardware, best sells for the year, 3D and move to come + best games again, and he want them to make a "desperate price cut" (like the one ms was doing to survive last time)
hey greenberg...how about worldwide? sonys owning worldwide. face it, xbox360 is the past, its not prepared for the future.
More sales crap for MS. Tell me 360 fans, do you get money for every 360 sold? Does MS send you a check? If not, then why do you guys care so much? LMFAO.
I think most of these sales are from the regular models getting price cuts. The 360 might be ahead in the US for this month but it is still behind in World Wide sales this month compared to PS3. Europe and Japan more than make up for the 120k diff
STFU & GTFO
All he said was that the new redesign made the sales go up. Why you take offense to that comment?
He never stops speaking like the head of the fable developer. Why cant companies just not talk. It is nice just to get their products and go on but then when they keep talking and talking it gets annoying. Gabe never stopped talking and then he ran his mouth about the PS3 and was flamed at and told he didnt know how to make a game on the cell and not a real dev.
"Why cant companies just not talk. It is nice just to get their products and go on but then when they keep talking and talking it gets annoying." Welcome to the world of business, where hundreds of companies are vying for consumer attention. The last thing you wanna do as part of a major company is NOT keep yourself in the news and if talking non-stop is the way to do it, then so be it. But quite frankly, this is no different from a comment Shinji Mikami makes about Vanquish. Don't know why you're taking it so personally.
Umm he is a PR spokesman, that is his job? Nike summarises it well.
@the only lol king He's paid to talk and you want him to shut up?
@ the only lol you could just not click the link and ignore that the 360 exists along with greenberg.. some of you take things a little too serious...
I believe the xbox 360 isnt getting enough credit it deserves!
And you have 4 Bubbles how?
What's so shocking about deanogee's comment?
Agreed - it's come from ..where...? and is dominating the platform that came in replace of the #1 dominating gaming platform in the US of the prior generation. Completely undermining it and becoming a massive success in a very short time. You're right - it's not getting the kind of David credit it should vs the mighty Sony Goliath that's utterly failed on living up to last gen's reputation. Apparently the Sony disagreeers think the 360's getting massive props - probably from their constant commenting on 360 articles.
New redesign + popularity of 360 in America= sales
I wonder how many MS gave away for free.
None, that's not how NPD works.
Good job Greenberg. Well what do you want, a Cookie? Don't answer that. You'd probably say "Chocolate Chips with sprinkles and SKITTTTLEESSS"
Now I want one.. =(
Aaron Greenburg: professional horn tooter.
talk sh!t all day and get paid, wish I had a job like that.
You and me both...
Aaron talks about the 360 when its selling well in one particular month, but quiet about it during the rest of the year.
Theyve been outselling the PS3 in the USA since 7 months ago. WTF you talking about ? Sound sour already.
In the US ONLY. so it doesnt really matter...
hence "npd"... maybe you should tell sony that america doesnt matter..
yes it does cause america is the biggest market so quit acting like america dont matter the game developers caters to US-A
it would if your console was top eh?
ANY PR would do that.
i contributed to june sales, i picked up an arcade when they dropped to $150. not even my (then) sony fanboyism could stand in the way of a bargain. at that price i couldn't justify not giving the 360 another chance. already 2 disagrees because i pulled sony's jock out of my throat? you people are seriously mentally ill. its not fanboyism at this point, it's severe mental illness. seek help.
I refuse to buy one. I really do. As much as I'd like to get Gears 3, the Xbox 360 represents everything in my life that I hate.
hate - intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury merriam - webster I hate hyperbole.
Wow, lol. I just can't...contain... Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahaha! It's like a little kid telling me he hates ponies and he's saying it so deadpan and serious like before forgetting it five minutes later in favour of ice cream. It's adorable!
"Everything in my life that I hate." What.. you mean fun?
what ppl cant disagree with what you said, man you like 2 whine. I disagree aswell so what now, should i change it because it hurt your feelings cause i didnt agree with your comment. PPl need to learn what agree and disagree mean here. the only way im buying another xbox is if its used for like 50 bucks maybe 100 if i have spare money. So sorry i disagreed with your comment
yay u bought a xbox... want a cookie?
I've yet to sell a new 360 to someone who didn't already have a 360. You're selling to the same people! The sales numbers are disproportional to the number of new Xbox Live subscribers. Ask him THAT!
yea like not a single owner of the fat playstation bought the slim! you guys never stop with your double standards do you?
All of the residant N4G Sony fanboys were up in here saying how they'll be getting new PS3 slim when it was announced. I mean some were even pretty proud to soon be owning 2 (or sometimes even 3) PS3's. Funny thing is thats ok when its Sony...you already know how it is if its MS lol. @00 below: Lol I wouldnt be surprised, almost all of them were gloating about how they were going to get the Slim ASAP.
didn't you buy a slim? I remember you commenting about buying a slim around its release.
Leon, Leon, Leon.. when will you stop?! I think Dread and 00 said it well, So, there's not much need for me to say anything. But, nice double standards Leon, good job lookin a fool.
"I've yet to sell a new 360 to someone who didn't already have a 360. You're selling to the same people! The sales numbers are disproportional to the number of new Xbox Live subscribers." I'm trying to understand your point but, WHAT THE HELL DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MAKE? :)
im not american so this news is not for us
I wonder what Sony's excuse will be to it's investors lol. PS4 is going to be announced soon folks right after Sony announces another desperate price cut. It's just crazy to see 360 shaking off the haters. edit above maximus prime: then if it's not for you begone then kid. Funny you find the time to post about news that's not for you lol. Sounds like Envy in it's worst form messing with you. Oh and by the way this is news for everyone. Maybe if some of you would learn to quit worrying about yourself the world would be a better place.
My question is this. How come people who HATE the 360 or MS or anything that isn't Sony/PS3 are commenting about his tweet? Also who wants to take bets that someone will comment in the NPD thread that they gave away the 360s for free which contributed to the bump for June sales even though NPD doesn't work that way?
Funny, see post #5. ^ ^ ^ :)
They deserve it, the new x360 is so cool.
You gotta give it to Greenberg...he nows exactly when to open his mouth. Happily enough, it happens seldom. Seriously, this guy is like the Joseph Goebbels of the so called Console War.
Why are you guys mad?
Someone has the better toy, or the ice-cream they'd secretly rather have - or is it the pacifier? No idea - they need lives to get on with ;)
Cool for MS. I might trade in my xbox 360 for the new one.
I would advise against that. WHEN not IF it breaks then go for it IMO.
Maybe I misunderstood, but why would he wait to try to trade it in AFTER it breaks? Not gonna be worth much then! :)
