Between December 27, 2010 and April 10, 2011, 174,269 were sold PS3, Wii 131,404 and against 107,000 360.
look at the numbers and then compare them to just one month of NPD numbers.
counter strike is talking about the EU, not just france http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Its Europe... Do American can tell difference between France and Europe...?
@wenaldy, What a typically ignorant, elitist European attitude to have. By attempting to insult Americans, you have failed to miss the point of what he was saying. He didn't say anything about France he was making a broader point and you had to insult him.
"Between December 27, 2010 and April 10, 2011, 174,269 were sold PS3, Wii 131 404, Xbox360 107 000." In France in almost 4 months they sold: 174k PS3's 131k Wii's 107k Xbox360's ... and in the USA just last month they sold: Nintendo DS - 460k Xbox 360 - 433k Nintendo 3DS - Slightly Under 400k Wii - 290k WOW ... that's quite a difference.
well the USA does have a population just over 300 million compared to Frances 63m
And India has a population of over a billion... your point?
Point being there is going to be a big difference in numbers between USA and France. India well that would help if a large portion of the 1 billion didn't live under the poverty line and couldn't afford any of these consoles..
Yo chaos. India may have a huge population of people, but when money come, they dont have as much as the USA, so please stop.beiging a ignorant.
The world are not interested in USA.
Yet idiots continue to shout USA =/= the world. It might not be but its far more relevant than the majority of countries when it comes to the gaming industry.
In what way? Revenue? Of course it does, it's population size alone should cover that... but, it's completely irrelevent to me. It's not like the US has a monopoly on game development at the highest levels. Some non-US games include LittleBigPlanet (UK), Mass Effect (Canada), Killzone (Netherlands), Metal Gear Solid (Japan), Fable (UK), Crysis (Germany), Assassin's Creed (Canada), Battlefield (Sweden), STALKER (Ukraine) on and on. USA does contribute, but many of the top tier franchises today are NOT American.
You are copletely correct lB Nay sayers of the U.S. hegemony have no real knowledge about economic systems . The US is the largest churning economy in the world by large , thus making it the MOST important market
France /= the world. I know you guys are just talking about the numbers at hand, but I thought it was important to make that clear. ;)
The PS3 is hitting it's stride I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. The PS3 hit 50m consoles in March. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w... It is now the middle off April. By May the PS3 will be closer to 51m.
360 hit 50 million in January.
It was also out longer and has always been at a lower price point. What's 2 months compared to that start? PS3 in second before the end of the year, count on it.
You are correct sir. The 360 hit 50m in January, it took only 6yrs and RROD for that to happen. Meanwhile it took the PS3 5yrs to hit 50m, and it did it with a higher price point, and constant bashing from the media. This is how you know that the PS3 has hit its stride. The 360 has no games coming out until November. The PS3 will be in 2nd by the summer.
@Clarence Yeah you are right, after all that bashing from the bias 360 bloggers/journalists, PS3 is still strong.
@ Clarence 360 won't be six years old until November. PS3 won't be 5 years old until November. PS3 sales are lower now than they were last year. This is probably due to the novelty of the PS3 slim wearing off. 360 sales now are greater than they were last year. This probably due to the 360 slim. Quite a lot of original PS3's got YLOD. Gears of War 3 comes out in September. Froza 4 is also coming out. PS3 exclusives don't seem to be driving sales of the system very much. I doubt PS3 will be in 2nd place by summer. Mostly because I have heard the same thing two summers in a row now. E3 price-cuts will probably determine the shape of the rest of the year.
My friend don't be so assumptive, you don't even know what will happen this year for ps3/360.. We should just wait if your prediction will come true LOL. I beg to disagree when you said PS3 exclusive line up don't seem to be driving sales?? I don't think so, Sony has huge exclusives coming out this year so I don't think that will fail, Oh yeah I know that most of that games are not that BIG compare to GEARS LOL, But if you count those Games+bundles that will be sold this year, I'm sure that will be enough to outsold the 360.. Well I maybe wrong about this but think about the it friend..
