Great numbers for xbox360 and NDS.

Vojkan3018d ago

i see what you did there.

FlipMode3018d ago

Why not just say for all consoles and handhelds? Except the PSP of course.

GreenRingOfLife3018d ago

Amazing, 360 has been out for a year longer than PS3 yet it is still outselling it

You'd think 360 sales would be slowing down but they are just going non-stop

rodeoo3018d ago

Its a good thing the u.s. is the only part of the world that matters.....

darthv723018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

i think you are off by just a bit. When I see the comments about this outselling that world wide there seems to be a lack of some fundamental thought.

No one ever states the basis for the numbers that are being proclaimed. In my understanding the wii is outselling the 360 and ps3 from the stand point of total accumulated systems sold. Those are the real world wide numbers.

Not in a specific time frame but overall. Which would also make the 360 outselling the ps3 in world wide numbers over all. These sales goggles everyone wears to make their system look good at a certain point in time need to be taken off. It makes them look stupid.

cygnuszero3018d ago

The 360 clearly has no plans of slowing down. The hardware is still cheaper than the PS3, and it has plenty of very highly rated games and a new halo coming out this year.

Game over.

Good NUMBERS for Wii and DS.

Lucky I don't play numbers.


I don't play numbers, doesn't mean I can't read and comment on their unimportance to my game playing?

I click MOST links on the front page.

deadreckoning6663018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

@mrv321- Yet u bothered to read/comment in a numbers article right?

@joebik10- I don't speak for everyone, but for me personally, I don't care who gets "ahead", but I DO care if the PS3 does well, since thats the console I own. The better the sales for the PS3, the more content Sony can produce for PS3 owners.

Edit: Mrv, u misunderstood my reply. I'm saying that if u CLAIM to not play numbers, why did you click on a numbers article?

"I don't play numbers, doesn't mean I can't read and comment on their unimportance to my game playing?"

Ummm..I didn't say you couldn't comment on it, I was just wondering why you would since you claim not to care. Chillax dude, forget I said anything. Beautiful stealth edit btw :)

joeblk103018d ago

Play games, not 12 year old fanboy wars.

nagato4life3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

THANKKK YOUUUUU,,,sales arent for gamers to worry about,its playing the dam games that we are supposed to do

T9X693018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Fanboys do. PS3 fans say quality doesn't equal sales because the 360 is ahead, then turn around and get all into how the PS3 is going to pass the 360. Their to worried about how long its going to take PS3 to pass up the 360, rather than playing their PS3.

Actually I have a questions, once and if the PS3 passes up the 360 what exactly are you going to get out of it? You don't see any of the money, and quite frankly I'll I see happening is bragging rights (I guess) over N4G where most of its users are PS3 anyway.

sak5003018d ago


You say play games not wars yet every article for 360 is swamped with idiot ps3 fans spouting $#hit and ruining the comments section. Why do you think this story is any different?

YOu'd think this site has real gamers coming in here..

Natsu X FairyTail3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Why would I say good numbers for all consoles?

Im sorry if saying good numbers for xbox360 and NDS makes a few guys feel left out so they have to disagree with me.

edit: I wasnt tryna stir nothing. I get disagrees because I dont say PS3 is the best console EVERRR! xbox is crap! This is N4G for ya.

FlipMode3018d ago

I don't feel left out, it just seems you were trying to stir something, thats why you got disagrees

turok3018d ago

and If i was a fanboy of any kind id be a nintendo fanboy. Not much sony or ms got that wud i wud consider going fanboy over. faceless companies lol. not like ms sony or ninty go caress ur head as u sleep lol.

Independent_Charles3018d ago

although xbox is selling very well i think ps3 leads on WW sales but marginally maybe 150k-200k a month, id like to see what the sales of this month would bring in. lol i saw 9 people in a row walk out with new 360 this morning. 9 PEOPLE IN A ROW!! LOL

YYYYEEEEESSSS!!!! Who was the best console of all time, forever, times a million for the first half of the year?

iPad3018d ago

We need Worldwide sales.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Who needs World Wide sales when North America (not whole America) is better than World Wide sales /s.

Elven63018d ago

These aren't North American numbers, simply America since NPD doesn't cover Canada.


''Here is a month-by-month breakdown of the NPD hardware sales for North America for the first-half of 2010:''

Elven63018d ago

Probably a mistake by the author, even when you clicked the linked posts some say America while others North America. NPD Group doesn't cover North America for consoles sales, only US retailers are tracked excluding places like Walmart.

ElementX3018d ago

Problem is most countries in Europe and the rest of the world don't have official numbers.

Cold 20003018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Yes Sony fanboys need WW sales to reassure them.

@below: Oh! How could I forget the "shortages" that have lasted SIX MONTHS...LOL.

Oh and btw, the "shortages" are over and the 360 still stomping the PS3. Looks like next month Sony will have to go back to having "shortages" :)

Carlton Banks3018d ago

Just like xbox fanboys need to focus on america to comfort them and lol even with shortages ps3 was only like 400,000 behind

3018d ago
KingME3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

Only 400,000 because 400,000 is

@avatarshoe - Cold 2000 is trolling be you're not; right?

bjornbear3018d ago

economists, financial advisors, presidents, ambassadors, stock brokers, businessmen and over all ANYONE that lives AROUND THE WORLD need world wide sales numbers.

your the ignorant fool thinking people make a big deal over world wide numbers because it "reassures" us, no.

the fact you limit yourself to ONE COUNTRY, shows you are the one who needs reassurance.

FlipMode3018d ago (Edited 3018d ago )

I don't care about what fanboys said in the past, I'm just wondering where the proof is Sony is lying about these shortages, especially when retailers already confirmed its true, I don't get why Amazon would be lying about shortages.

sak5003018d ago

Sony fanboys claim they dont care about sales. Yet they want WW numbers. hahah.

ukilnme3018d ago

@ sak500

They always cared about sales. We all know that and so do they.

Bobets3017d ago

LOL @ cold got owned by Carlton.

well we lost this battle but my fellow sony fanboys the war is not over! jk its pretty much over ps3 has games every year lots of them 360 has sales every year lots of them but as gamers gusse whats the one i care about?

mrv3213018d ago


Applegate3018d ago

But we're in a thread about sales in America.

The insecurity you guys show in every NPD article is amazing. You say the same things again and again...

Do you see 360 fans yapping about sales in the USA in Japan sales threads ?? No, I guess thats a PS3 fanboy exclusive.

Seferoth753018d ago

When it is Japan numbers the same people will not bother to recognize that Japan does not equal the world.

Besides PS3 is selling like crap WW as well. I mean its usually half of what Wii sales.

ukilnme3018d ago

You care about both, it's ok to admit it.

nickjkl3018d ago

jesus th eps3 is only 400k behind the 360 in america so far
