Find out how many PS3 units Sony sold in May (NPD).
pricecut ASAP!!!!!!! Danger danger!
I sense sarcasm...
I'd like a pricecut ;) If you disagree, you're a troll :|
@a_squirrel... would I like to see a price cut? Sure why the hell wouldn't I? Do I think they will? No, they don't need to. My reply to happyface's comment was based on the "Danger danger!"... being that Sony is actually up in their sales... there is no danger for Sony.
Maybe not until the Wii U releases. Even though this article only compares one month. The PS3 is doing better and better each year.
PSN was out. I wonder how much more it would have increased if PSN didnt get hacked.
Almost 200K and following the PSN shutdown? Danger......riiiiiiiight.
They need a price increase. I don't like casual gamers who keep playing Modern Warfare.
why are you 2 addin in the psn hacks, people who know nothing buy products, im sure they were oblivious to the situation.
Fatstarr even my mom knew about the PSN hack.. I actually had it highlighted to our company at one of our Security Webex's so its huge to say people didn't know is false.
I am dead sure that we will see a price drop this holiday season simply because PS Vita which is almost has good as PS3 will be available for $249. You will be able to take it with you and play online on the go which is effin brilliant. I am sure will want to see more PS3 sales later this holiday with the help of a pricecut!
But PS3 outsells worldwide
Not in the past 3 months. So far in 2011 Xbox outsold PS3. Check financial reports. 2.1 million vs 2.8 million.
Dirty, no, PS3 is outselling Xbox 360 worldwide, Outsells in Europe and Japan and its total more than US. http://www.vgchartz.com/ Stop lying xbot
Wow. VGChartz is now a reliable source? o_O
Hahaha you linked to vgcrap. slap yourself.....HARD
People still in denial?
Xbox 360 "Best Selling Console." Read the article
Well if you are into sales for consoles then you might want to use data from Sony and Microsoft financial reports instead of the source you just linked. When you do this, vgchartz is wrong. Go to the source instead of vgchartz ;-)
nono this is actually great news for Sony, the last several NPDs, PS3s sales have went down year over year. Remember the reports about Xbox 360 being the only console to increase year over year, well this time PS3 went up as well. Sony has got to be ecstatic.
Yeah, PS3 is up year by year but not much. Looks to have sold more than even the Wii last month.
Nice to see the PS3 up in-spite of the PSN issues.
I'm surprised by the increase. It's great to see both 360 and PS3 with strong sales last month.
How can this be, according to N4G "wisdom" everyone traded in their PS3s when they couldn't play COD for a few weeks /s
They must have all bought 2 when PSN came back online...lol
@Kneon - you lost me, please explain your statement?
Did you not see the various claims of a huge rise in people trading in PS3s because of the PSN outage? If that was happening at any significant level then sales wouldn't be up. There were also some claims that the entire gaming market would suffer due to the outage, that is clearly not the case as both Microsoft and Sony were up Y/Y. Yes Nintendo is down but that was to be expected. I didn't see any numbers for the PC or handheld market but I'm sure they were unaffected by all this as well.
What did you and others expect? The sales of just 100? Sony doing fine now? LMAO
cannot believe neither sony nor ms dropped the price at E3. I wonder how long they can keep this up.
Microsoft is doing too well now to cut price. Kinect gave them a real boost so they wont cut price until sales become stagnant again. Sony doesn't have to make a move because Microsoft didn't and Sony is still competitive.
Well your half right, actually Sony cannot afford a price drop right now, the PS3 just recently MAY have become profitable, this is not the time for a price drop as far as they are concerned. You were right about 360, it is doing very well for it to be so late in its life, since PS3 is not dropping in price, and 360 is still outselling PS3 and holding on to 2nd place, MS will not be dropping the price.
When you are seeing Year over Year growth...There is absolutely NO reason to price drop. I mean seriously why would you as either Sony or Microsoft drop price right now? Your sales are actually up from last year.. you are selling more despite the price being the same? From a companies perspective that is an ideal situation.
If all they sold was hardware you would be kinda right. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo want to sell software and services. If the hardware profit margin was more forgiving, they would take the initial loss in profits from the hardware for the future gains in software. This late in the hardware cycle software sales don't grow nearly as fast. It's actually beneficial to hold onto as much hardware profit as possible until software sales increase with holiday shopping or a competitor decides to stick you. -Death
I think MS is riding the wave of Kinect atm, their sales up (in the US) by 39%. EDIT: Oh StanLee bet me to it.
MS and Sony won't drop price until Wii U is out.
If they don't cut prices this fall then I expect it a few months before the Wii U launches. If you get someone to buy your console then they are less likely to go buy another just a few months later.
Nefarious timing and price cutting troll. They probably wont cut prices AFTER the the WiiU is out, because it is gonna cost more than either the PS3 or Xbox and will be in that awkward first year where it HAS NO GAMES. PS3 ~might~ drop prices sometimes next year, but the xbox is not getting a price drop for the foreseeable future. IT PRINTS MONEY!
In ontario (not sure if all of canada got the sale)250gb 360 was cdn $199.00 the week before the e3. Had to pick one up. Purchased blue dragon, and lost odyssey. :D
I picked up the 4gb when it was $129, just wish I had waited for the 250gb sale. I still have my elite though, has plenty of room left.
Nice to see an increase, but sometimes I wonder how much more of an increase PS3 would have had if the whole hacking thing never happened?? Makes me wonder... But I don't see Sony dropping the price just yet. I think they will most likely drop it early next year when no major exclusives are out. and if they drop it to $199, then that's a GOOD sign they are ready for PS4
Glad MS is doing so well ,.. More Kinect titles for you,.. lolololo
Wow, that was very funny, congrats. /s edit: oh, i see you stealth edited your comment.
I did not,.. I realized it might not be be understood as an irony, and considered as a provocation or offensive, to just say fuck off to somebody,.. It is not easy to convey intent trough text. And I watched to much of South Park today,.. so ,.. edited: ''because (MS says) : fuck off''
yeah more kinect title indeed,your just jealous, we got sesame street and disney land adventure! microsoft rocks!!
Great looking games, just not for you and me. Not every game is intended for the same audience, you know.
ever heard of the word sarcasm , you know.
Yes, and with sarcasm you're implying that those two games are crap. Which is why I gave the previous response to your comment.
They will drop the price in the spring.... *walks away from crystal ball*
It's nice to see gaming consoles remain popular in the midst of the cell phone video game advent coming on strong.
Actually, NPR was covering it today... Consumers are finally tiring of smart phones, and the smart phone market is cooling off. It seems consumers are getting tired of expensive phones with expensive data plans, and the whole texting and facebook while on the go thing was just a fad. Just like the pda collapse of the late 90's...
The PS3 is NOT outselling 360 worldwide. Will SOMEONE, ANYONE post two links to creditable sources supporting this 'claim'? I ask all SOny fans: Link to One-TWO sources (legit) proving this claim. According to Wiki (using company sources), the Xbox is leading in WW sales....
You can bet if Sony was leading or had passed Microsoft they would be shouting it from the rafters and rubbing it in as much as they could. They would not let a win like that go unnoticed by the gaming press. I would imagine for total sales worldwide the Wii is still in front, followed by 360 then PS3, if things had changed either camp would be making a huge fuss!
I'm not so sure that Sony would rub in the "victory". The console market is mostly driven by popularity, you know, and the PS3 has been steadily increasing in sales by 14%. That is already a great victory, amidst the PSN and hackers and whatnot. Remember that game companies are not trolling fanboys. ; )
things about to change we would be making a huge fuss!
Under no circumstance should you ask for a reliable source and than say according to wiki, as your source. And what company sources are these, because I work for Microsoft and I say, and will update wiki accordingly, that the Xbox 360 has sold 500 millions trouble free consoles. Honestly I'm just glad the game industry is still chugging a long and doing very well. There are tons of great games for both systems, and if anyone limits themselves to just an Xbox or just a PS3 because they are bias really are missing out on quality titles and hours of entertainment for no good reason.
I loled too.

@Rikan I think you are confused at what most mean by outselling. 360 has "outsold" PS3 currently still by about 3-4million WW. BUT, PS3 is "outselling" 360 WW in month to month sales, basically meaning it is gaining on the 360's lead. If the rate of increase keeps up, PS3 will have passed 360 in total WW sales by the end of 2011 or early 2012.
AS I thought--no sources. PS3 is NOT leading in 'ww sales'. Not only does that mathematically make no sense, it's merely sonyfanboy propaganda.
Price cut so Xbox360 players can play some outstanding exclusive games and see what they've been missing all these years? You bet edit: and that's US only so who cares about the US
about 307,006,550 people care about the USA.
A lot more people than that care about the USA in some way or another, only a foolish man tries to convince himself the USA does not matter on ANY level except soccer. The USA maybe a lot of things, but one thing it is not, is irrelevant.
@ earthlover..sorry for some reason couldn't edit. Just did a quick google search, and that 307,006,550 is the amount of people that live in the USA from the 2009 census reading. I was just being a tad assish because plenty of people care about USA
Go buy more exclusives and support your team. Then re-work your statement to include PS3 and Xbox360 only players since both miss out on some great exclusives. -Death
Well good too see the lack of online didnt hurt sales,i like how sony fans say america isnt the world but it is were ps3 biggest user base is online.
