PS3 to Finish Last in March NPD - Analyst

And x360 finishes last in Media Create. So what? Why is there a need for an article like this? Oh right...fanboy wars demand it....sigh...

Quickly people approve this and let the fighting begin......OK......GO!

Since NPD has been neutered from releasing factual data based on REAL sales and Mr Pachter has been specifically told NOT to release sales data from NPD, he's had to become more stealthy with his " predictions. His numbers sure seem very specific.

Big surprise is Kinect SELLING 10 million units with really nothing but launch titles.

Either way it's positive news except for Nintendo Wii which seems to have reached it's saturation point.

Well i still think those kinect "sales" are the same as what microsoft did the first year of the 360, which is flood the market, since it is shipped to retailers.

So in essence yes they did sell 10million to retailers but not to consumers yet.

north america loves xbox, euorpe is sony, asia is nintendo

zeksta2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

Asia is Sony and Nintendo you nub. :P

@Slavish, And last time I checked, Japan was in a Crisis, sales from each of those companies provide more profit and possible donations from each of those companies.

last time i checked nintendo was ahead in asia with wii sells. There is only one top dog not two. Why do sony fangirls try to put there name next to nintendo and asia as if they are working together against M$. lol they both are losing Sony and M$. There is only 1 number 1 fool. sony was king last two gens and got cocky and know they are fighting for second lol. M$ and nintendo actually grown this generation. sony is the only one to shrink!!!!!!!!!!!

Using the logic you're trying to use, then Nintendo is still in first place worldwide. The Wii has still sold the most overall.

He makes an excellent point for now and after the next round of price cuts things will get interesting.

lelo2play2837d ago

America, Europe and Asia are Nintendo.

I would like to think people realize sales in 1 region alone mean nothing.........

I am more curious to see how the 3ds did. If vg chartz is anything to go buy it sold over a million

@ below
If the 3ds has sold 2 million worldwide........ you can bet in the US it sold 1 million

a_bro2837d ago

750K-850K is expected in the US.
