VGChartz: "Can the Xbox 360 do the unthinkable and pass Playstation 2 lifetime sales in the United States of America?"
Thought it highly unlikely, the article makes a good argument for it happening though.
VG Chartz is definitely trying... But I'm not sure if that'll happen.
still not gonna happen.
Who or what is PS2?
The 360 doesn't come close to the best selling console (including handhelds) of all time, 150 million sold and still counting. Thats nearly a 100 million sales more than the 360.
The successor of xbox 360 , what a shame i thought u would know better ... about MS products.. anyway thank me later
in the usa theres a good chance of it selling more than the ps2 (especially as the ASP is above $199 at the moment) worldwide, not a cats chance in hell. Might be lucky to sell a few more than PS1
Would be pretty amazing, not convinced 360 will last long enough though.
Doesn't look like it from those figures
I can play ps2 games on my PC
Your PC can play most 360 games as well.Whats your point?
I think the availability of Steam - offering Marketplace games to PC - may slow down a few sales from Microsoft's offering. Otherwise, I doubt anything ever outsells the PS2!
No, never in a few years they will release a new one and force 360 player to update by stopping support for the xbox 360 like they did with the original xbox. The ps2 still sells i see new ones in stores still so no there will never likely be another console to rival the ps2 sales because people move on too quickly and want new new new everything plus ps2 didn't have to compete with tablets, powerful handhelds and all the other tech we have today.
If vgchartz is responsible for adding up the numbers, it sure can. It would be the first time PS2 sales would actually be recorded less than it's already sold in the past.
ffs sake now they start on the ps2
microsoft won't be able to do it but vgtrash can do some magic tricks
it will never be as good as the legendary ps2.
The PS2 stayed alive because Sony supports its past system. Once 360 released, Microsoft pushed aside the Xbox and only focused on the new child. 360 could be in that same situation once 720 is out. But if those vgchart numbers of the PS2 are accurate, then Sony must re evacuate the PS2. Its really dying now. 09 was the last time it sold over a million?
lol vgchartz is not trustworthy mate. The ps2 still outsells the 360 in Japan that system aint gunna die anytime soon.
It probably will if MS plays its cards well. 360 only had $100 price drop and now Kinect basically bumped that price to launch values.Kinect bundles sell better than standalone 360,according to NPD. At E3 expect to see tons of hardcore games that have some Kinect implementation+casual Kinect stuff+ordinary core games+Halo 4(i believe it will be shown there).Take all that and combine it with some fall price cut(Kinect=$99)=win
Nope your wrong it will never happen. Come write me back in a few years so i can say i told you so. And yea it will never have a chance of touching the world wide sales of the ps2. Not even a chance. They won't even beat out the world wide sales of ps3
This is US prediction,article clearly states that,worldwide means nothing here. 360 is now what?26 million in US,easily 30+ million this year even without price drop.Gap will be like 15 millions?Not that big and PS2 sales are nothing more than statistical noise at this point. MS won't leave 360 like xbox,why?Answer is simple,360 is making them tons of money,in fact very soon(in few months) 360 division will cover all 360 loses(including RROD),that's about 4+ billion $$$.Nobody normal would abandon cash cow,especially MS. Expect it to sell many many years after next-xbox arrives.
Yea dude still not going to happen. And i like how you brought up the red ring of death. The only reason they have as many sells as they do, is because they count all of the fixed one as sells. And not to mention how many people went and bought new ones when there's broke. I have bought five xboxs. And had two of them fixed. That is 7 total and i am one person. My bother has also had three, and his girlfriend has had 3. Not to mention i have only bought 2 ps3. And i have a 60GB first year addition. Still works going on 6 years. And a ps3 slim that has never had a single problem. That is why xbox has more sales then they should. I am so surprised they didn't do a recall on the 360s. Any other company they would have. But m$ buys people out. Simple fact.
who cares? worldwide salesnumbers are what counts
Mmm, only time will tell...
So.. what happens then? Nothing. Also the PS2 has like what? 100 million + world wide sales.
The one factor they are overlooking is the PS3's future momentum. The PS3 obviously eat up market share in the US with another subsequent price reduction with either 249.99 or 199.99 models. The PS3 is still in its prime as the software proves
PS3 has no future after what happened. Your comment is void.
Crimson, Don't be a fanboy. This psn situation means pretty much nothing. Give it a month as people will forget about it, other then ms supporters who like to bring up things that dont matter.
In america GAP alone is 19m between 360 and ps2 seriously WTF don't even get me started on World wide.
It will never happen, the PS2 was a rare case. I don't think we will ever see anything like it again.
I thought I read the wii sold more then ps2 in America....so why are they asking about selling more then ps2 other then to start a flamebait article?
"...in America". Nobody cares. The American market is no indication of good product.
it will never, ever come close to the ps2...and one market for a global product is IRRELEVANT! and honestly out of those supposed 50 million xbox360's sold, how many are in a landfill somewhere, i mean for the first 2 years half of them broke, now the failure rate is probably at 30% so real actual 360's in peoples homes i'd put at about 28 million
