"With the battle for market supremacy heating up, will Gran Turusmo 5 propel the PlayStation 3 past the Xbobx 360?"


The Xbox 360 already is in last place worldwide in sales.

Gaetano3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

Nope. 360 is about 3-4 million worldwide more @ 44.6, PS3 @ 41.6

¿Still VGChartz is online?

I thought it was closed after many wrong charts published by this site.

Those numbers equal '3 million'. Why the 'dash '-' 4 million'?

If you're extrapolating an extra month and a half of sales, given the previous three quarters - even with the release of such things as the 360 s and Halo Reach - saw the 360 shipping 700-900k less per quarter (presuming they're both using 'sold to retailers' numbers (i know there's a separate argument about that)), an extra month and a half sales should see that number closer to 2.5 million than 4 million.

Basically if you don't want disagrees, drop the dash 'lets put in a bigger number' floating bit. You can 'facepalm' all you want, there's nothing 'factual' about 44.6-41.6 equalling '4 million' (or giving it space to). That equation equals 3 million. Period.

The only way for Xbox to be ahead of PlayStation, is by releasing ahead.

Since when is 42 million bigger than 44 million?

Gaetano3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

As of September 30, 360 had about 3-4 million sales more.

EDIT: Good ol' N4G. PS3 fanboys disagree with fact *facepalm*. This is not a PS3 bashing article. Quite the contrary.

Anon19743746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

I don't think anyone is arguing 42 is more than 44. T9X69 is simply trolling.

The statement above mentioned that the 360 is in last place in worldwide sales. That's 100% accurate. It's been in 3rd place for quite sometime, handily outsold by both the PS3 and Wii in head 2 head sales in the time since the 360 had competition. Total units sold since launch is another thing entirely, but what sense does it make to look at sales that happened before?

When we look at current worldwide sales, does anyone say that the PS2 is outselling the 360? Of course not, but if we play T9X69's game then the PS2 is walking all over the 360. But of course we don't count the previous decade that the PS2 was on the market before the 360 was released when looking at figures now. We look at how each console is selling head 2 head for an accurate idea of how they're selling relative to each other. Head 2 head since it had competition the 360 is 3rd. That's the fact T9X69 is trying to distract from.

GT5 will be HUGE system seller for PS3. Let get into the hands of people who don`t care much about gaming but LOVE racing (which is ALOT of people) and it`ll progressively sell systems.

Plus. GT5P sold like 5 million being a massive demo. 2 years ago with alot less PS3s in peoples houses.

With the PS3 selling so much better than the 360 this year worldwide and the PS2 only selling 1 million less than the 360 it might just be that way yes. A lot of people will buy a PS3 only because of this game. And look how many there is still playing games on the PS2. It's just a matter of time before the PS3 is on top.

CatGlue3746d ago

We've waited for this title for like 5 years, everyone who wanted a next gen would have already gotten one. The console war has been fought and decided right?

All_4_One3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

"The console war has been fought and decided right?"

No. As with any "war," there is no finish line, it`s fought until there is only one console standing, and that console will be the PS3.

Gaetano3746d ago

I think Kinect has essentially added another 4-5 years shelf life for the 360. It's going to sell 5 million by the end of the year. Throw in roughly 1-2 million more 360's sold, plus PS3 moving consoles over Christmas, and it heats up even more. It's a great time to be a gamer really. 2011 is going to be big, especially for PS3 with so many great exclusives. 360 also has plenty going for it.

Biggest3746d ago

That's gonna be a long, sad 4-5 years for people banking on Kinect.

ryuzu3746d ago

Actually I think Kinect and the support MS has given it, signalled them ceasing to compete with Sony and trying to compete with Wii.

Make of that what you will, but for "core" gamers (whatever they are) there is only one console right now and the casuals have 2 (although there are some good games on those 2 of course).


Xusuyzus3746d ago (Edited 3746d ago )

It is cheaper for them to loose to Nintendo,
than to fuck with Sony,.. They will just get raped ,.. that is how much quality hardcore titles Sony can spit out,..

hell I cannot afford to buy all their exclusive AAA shit,..

No, just one of the reasons it eventually will.
