Game industry analysts have weighed in with US sales predictions for the month of September ahead of the NPD Group's release of official market data this Thursday - and it looks like good news for Microsoft.
its to be expected xbox360 is the best console and world market leader.
You forgot to add the sarcasm at the end.
You neglected your /s.
b-b-but Halo Reach won't push hardware... everyone already bought a X360 when Halo 3 came out... Well you were wrong. Next stop; Fable-Ops-Kinect. Prepare for a X360 full circle domination this holiday ^^
sack boi Fifa 11 PS3 outsold Halo reach in it's first week in Europe. How's that for sales considering how must Reach was advertised over here.
First of, you've posted that crap like 15 times today. Second, what's your source? And finally, I thought you guys didn't care about sales? @smartguy below Fifa is on two consoles, Halo Reach is on only one. I'll compare MW2/Black Ops sales to GT5 whenever that one comes out.
@Sack Single platform PS3 Fifa 11 sales! Forget the first two that's including 360 sales. http://www.mcvuk.com/news/4... or http://uk.ps3.gamespy.com/p... or Fifa 11 PS3 only sales outsold reach http://www.vgchartz.com/wee... I'm sorry to burst the worldwide domination bubble you had going there.
You made your case, and the idiot MS sycophants still disagree with you, which is why I never waste my time trying to reason with them. BTW sack boi, speaking of sources, where are yours saying that Halo Reach moved so much hardware? Where are your references? "Fifa is on two consoles. Halo Reach is only on one" Black Ops is also on two consoles, so why add it to your pathetic example of a so-called "full circle domination" like if it were an Xbox exclusive? BTW, I would just like to say that the only thing Kinect is going to dominate is your mother's mid-afternoons while she waits for you to get out of school.
Had nothing to do with that new console feel still going about has it?? 0.o Not to mention it was bundled with Halo reach so people updated and got there hands on halo reach and a new console at the same time as then you basically get halo reach for free.
Someone should tell Nintendo that.
another new account...
hmm this should make all the people who play sales instead of games happy.
DelbertGrady hit the nail on the head. Halo: Reach was the only big thing released in September and it's the 360's flagship franchise. I'd say anyone who expected something different in September is delusional. The only other thing to really release was Playstation Move but even Sony didn't expect it to sell absolutely massive numbers. So yeah, of course MS were going to clean up in September.
actually, kh: birth by sleep was great for psp.
I stand corrected. Sorry, didn't even realise that was out.
that's the order of this gen
uhhh ds is over everything there duder... like way over and psp would be in third as well with over 60 million sold...
ds, psp, wii, 360, ps3, pspGO(trash)
think b4 you post.
CantHaveOpinionsHere You are crazy and troll. PSPGo is best device on market, everyone wants it, its just that they don't want to buy it since it is so awesome, something you will never understand....
pspGO is so great that it's just to much awesome to handle. Who wouldn't think it would be awesome to have a psp that lacks a umd drive, good games, feel highly breakable, cost more in software as well as the GO itself, slow downloads, same battery life even with less moving parts, digital download only and an even smaller screen. You are a genius. I WANT A GO!!!!! Here's bubbles my friend edit: @vhero 6.1.2 it's not fanboyism it's facts
the truth hurts
I wonder what will happen to the Xbox now that Halo is done? I hope Microsoft has something up its sleeve.
Don't wonder 360 has been outselling PS3 for who knows how many months(who counts any more) and from what i remember they didn't have Halo each month (let me check --- runs to Gamestop to ask ---comes back--) nope they didn't have Halo game every month. Mistery solved.
150 bucks cheaper than the PS3. GTFO now
Its been outselling the ps3 since the launch of the slim so that's 3?? Real people count worldwide not just the US like you fanboys and MS 360RRODFIX take your fanboyism somewhere else nobody on N4G likes you not even the 360 gamers.
nice spin with "world wide". No one knows EU numbers where in total sales it is neck to neck, and where most likely 360 is outselling since price cut and slim model. O and of course there is irellevant Japan, place where no one buys western games, you know games i care about and western publishers care about. So only western market is important, thats a fact. Ask publisher whom they have in mind when making games, even Japanese devs make games with westerners in mind. because we buy software, unlike Japan where Uncharted 2 selling 100k is somehow mindblowing, go figure... If you want WW, no problem, fanboys can keep on having that spin, in which BTW 360 is still overall leader over PS3, anyways no problem, keep on saying how PS3 sells more in Zimbabwe, Cuba, Venezula, Russia, i am sure all those 10 people enjoy gaming.... And please stop beggining and ending every sentence "You fanboy". Only fanboy in this case is you, i present facts and speak the truth. I am exclusive PS3 owner, dont own 360 and dont plan to, but like i said i am no fanboy i only see and speak the truth. If that bothers you, your problem, Case closed.
2010 from january to september jap: PS3 ahead of a million usa: 360 ahead of a million everything else: PS3 ahead of 200000 total worldwide: PS3:6,826,171 360:6,661,556 so the little japan is able to destroy the usa advantage.... and if halo has done something wait for GT5
"I expect any WW advantage $ony has now will be gone this holiday." not happening.
Do you and your 360 need a condom? wouldn't want you two to produce offspring.
I hate, hate, hate, hate salez arguments. Its stupid. But since every1 has an opinion i figure ill throw my 2c into the mix. If the above sales figures r correct and $ony has a 160k lead and lets say hypothetically $ony "wins" the year and sells 160k more. Whats the total lead M$ has atm? I mean even if $ony sells 200k more a year. How many years wis it gonna take for them to "beat" M$? Then if they do WHO GIVES A FUC*!?
Microsoft does have something up its sleeve....it's called more Halo. They set up the studio 343 Industries for that purpose to continue Halo post-Bungie.
Next main Halo will be for XBOX720.
Why are people always saying "I hope they have something up their sleeve"? This year, NPD reported 8 months so far and for 6 out of 8 months the Xbox 360 had the best selling game. January was won by Wii with NSMB Wii March was won by PS3 with God of War. Every other month was won by a Xbox 360 game. And guess what, this will probably continue for the rest of the year. September is save with Halo Reach, October will probably see Fable III (xbox 360), Medal of Honor (Xbox 360) or Fallout: NV (Xbox 360) on top, November is CoD Black Ops (Xbox 360) and probably for December, too.
I guess we know what microsoft is going to be doing all next year.... They will point to sales figures all year while Sony will be dishing out an exclusive almost every month and hd remakes. Sales is equal to quality guys. /s
Don't forget Sony will be rehashing older titles with Move support.
had dished out an exclusive every month this year, instead of always next year, we would not be in this situation. All we have left for the year is GT5, they just got Reach, with Fable and Kinect coming still. I cant believe Sony left us with nothing for the holiday, this is why Sony looses every holiday. No big deal I got both consoles.
fable i can agree but not sure why u mentioned kinect!! anyways there are enough games coming out for the holiday (blackops, fallout assassins creedetc..) that can keep you busy till next year when sony will be releasing all their AAA exclusives while microsoft just pushed its next big and probably only exclusive to the next holiday season lmao pretty sure by this time next year all these people who are probably replacing their old 360 to the new slim ones will be saying Where are the exclusive games microsoft?
It's the same sh!t every year; Sony annonces 50 titles and only 1 or 2 make it at the end of the year.
sports champions, time crisis: razing storm, the fight: lights out, the shoot, the sly collection, and tumble all either just came out or are coming out between now and december. quit whining please.
I'm disagreeing with the disagreefairy \o/
Ah yes... the sales = quality crowd. Funny stuff.
Previous months it was because "slim was out and people updating", also "Halo is not a system seller because everyone who wants Halo already have a 360". This month its "well Halo was out so that's why 360 sold more", "Kinect won't sell and is not a system seller", "people are not stupid and will not buy Kinect". Next month when 360 is on top again it will be "well Kinect is out and that's why 360 is up", "people are just stupid and buy into the Kinect hype".
Because thats exactly what he'd say. He's a troll and a fanboy and is not afraid/very proud to admit but dammit he speaks the truth and makes the fanboys rage. 53 ignores and counting. Ah darn it, I forgot I logged on with this acc, since I apparently have so many. Must have slipped my mind
You don't speak the truth, you speak like an idiot.
Halo american football is due soon, you have to throw halo chief's head about. Halo milk is due soon for Kinect, you have to put on a halo helmet and drink milk using no hands. Have a sense of humour guys.
There is a reason Microsoft always does a limited edition Halo bundle with each game. How else can you get a better looking 360 than the silver one? Thats right you can't. I think that added to its overall console sales. If you change the color people will buy it just like a lot of people did with the black Wii, and soon to be a red Wii so those numbers will spike again. If Sony were to release a new colored PS3 they would have the same spikes.
I'm playing games.
