I thought all the 360 guys were saying the the 360 was going to sell like 2.5 million consoles? What happened? What happened to all that 2-1 sales talk?

M-Easy2932d ago

How would the LA Times know Sony's numbers? The NPD doesn't release exact numbers only the Companies can.

eagle212932d ago

it's funny how Nintendo doesn't round up like MS.......Wii 2.36 and 360 1.86. :)

eagle212932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

overall best two selling systems for the 2010 year in the USA.....congrats! :)

Ps3 sold 1.2 million according to the LA Times in December

very good numbers for US market.

PS3 sold over 3 mill in EU and Japan while 360 sold onle 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December.

RBlaze2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

'PS3 sold over 3 mill in EU and Japan'... Erm, No it didn't.

'360 sold onle 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December'... This is probably about correct.

It would be a fair estimate to suggest that both consoles sold a similar amount overall in the two regions you mentioned... BUT I can't say that for sure, because I have no facts to back it up... I can only discuss the rumoured numbers. NO sources discuss the ridiculous numbers you have 'quoted'.

And no, by 'rumoured numbers', I don't mean someone's random estimate from an n4g comment section :).

EDIT: Oh! And the Wii has impressed again! I had no idea Nintendo were still shifting so many consoles!

turnerdc2932d ago

Nope, PS3 only sold 10 units in EU and Japan while the Xbox sold 9 and 3/4. See, I can make up numbers too.

samuraiX2932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )



PS3 -- 1,542,258
X360 -- 231,258

You don't want me to post Europe numbers...

"PS3 sold over 3 mill in EU and Japan while 360 sold only 1.5 mill in EU and japan in December."

The above is your quote. You're implying that the PS3 sold over 3 million in EU and Japan in December. To "back up" your information you post a link that shows the TOTAL sales for the PS3 in Japan for the ENTIRE year of 2010, not just December. Your source is not correlating with your information.

EDIT: And yes, please do post the European numbers.

FailOverHero2932d ago

Lol dude get outta here with that nonsense. Where in the world did you pull those numbers out from? Lol come on

Funny how people say the Wii is slowing down xD

RememberThe3572932d ago

Even more funny is that it actually is. And still it's selling more than any other console.

Mustang300C20122932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

It sold less than a year ago the same time. Yes it is slowing down. The 360 is the only console to see a sales increase while everything else dropped. So in that since yes it is not selling as much and if you have paid attention to this past year the sales have dropped compared to last year. This is by the way the first time the Wii has outsold the 360 after 6 months now.

Shok2932d ago

Of course it's somewhat slowing down. Any console that has sold as much as the Wii for 4 years will of course see some kind of decline, but it's not a huge one at all. What all these journalists and fanboys are saying is that it's DYING, or rapidly starting to fail in sales, but that's simply not the case.

Mustang300C20122932d ago (Edited 2932d ago )

You don't seem to be paying attention then. the 360 is in the 5th year. By your logic of Wii in the 4th year that means the 360 should be declining then. Correct?

I never said the Wii was dying and if I recall your original post didn't state anythin about people saying it was dying. We are discussing about the comment you made that clearly says it is slowing down which it is.

Shok2932d ago

I didn't say YOU said it was dying. I was talking about journalists and fanboys.

The 360 isn't in the same boat because it didn't sell as quickly as the Wii. I said, "Any console that has sold AS MUCH as the Wii."

The Wii IS slowing down, but I was referring to the extent that these Wii haters are talking about. Nothing to argue about here really, you just misunderstood my statement.

turnerdc2932d ago

I thought Wii was dead? I don't have one yet but I've been strongly considering getting one. I can't ignore Donkey Kong, Super Mario, and Link any longer!
