"According to the tech blog Venture Beat, video game sales revenue dropped 8% from September 2010"

The angst from PS3 fanboys in this thread is funny as hell. Have you all read some of the comments below?! Wow.

Interesting I guess. The industry seems to be quite healthy right now.

NPD has 360 selling 528,000 in the US alone. That is higher than Greenburg stated. Wii and PS3 both saw declines. If there is not a significant fall oof in 360 sale for OCT, M$ will have its biggest holiday sales ever. M$ has some serious momentum and Sony is not doing anything to try and slow them down. Obviously the Move did not do it, and GT5 was pushed back to give Fable and Kinect a free pass. Eu and Japan aren't buying as many consoles.

"X360 sold 484,000 units in September - about 96,800 units per week, up from August 2010 (89,175 units per week) and September 2009 levels but still not quite at the pace of the non-holiday record for X360 set in September 2007 when Halo 3 pushed X360 to 528,000"

-_-wow u dont even know how to read do u?

You are just absolutely full of it arnt you.

showtimefolks3697d ago

i am happy sony has delayed some titles gives me more time to play.

and rest of the world is also buying consoles GT5 sells more overseas so that's where consoles will sell too

BUT what a smart move by MS to launch slim its doing great one thing that's really funny/sad is all the multiplatform game when it advertises in the end it says xbox360 now only $199 than in small prints it say 4gb i would like to know how many people fall for that one
