The Xbox 360 has fantastic momentum for this holiday season

From iGameReport:
The Xbox 360 has had a brilliant past year, outselling all next-gen consoles in America for 13 of the last 14 months. This can be attributed to the continued commercial success of the unique Kinect accessory as well as key software deals with developers that are delivering content exclusive to the Kinect device.

Good read, and I'm glad that the 360 is going strong, but its a shame that this article is gonna turn into a flaming mess.

Edit- Holy smokes! Disagrees for saying I'm happy the 360 is going strong? Really guys this fanboy stuff really needs to end.

Abash2841d ago

Well all the momentum for the 360 seems to be in September with Gears 3, which is before the holiday season.

Neoninja2841d ago

Yeah I agree with that. Although I think it should carry on with Forza in October, and then Halo anniversary in November. Either way I'm gonna be that much more broke lol

Raven_Nomad2841d ago

Well even though it's not popular here, Star Wars Kinect, Kinect Sports 2, Dance Central 2 will all help this holiday season for the Xbox 360.

Gears 3, Halo CE and Forza 3 will also help, Modern Warfare 3 will definitely help. Doesn't have to be an exclusive to help push console sales.

It has great momentum every year. Not everybody falls for the hype of competitors mediocre exclusives, especially when that means spending another $300 dollars to buy a new system to play those overhyped games. Guess what folks? The multiplats are better than 99% of those exclusives, just look at the sales.

gamingdroid2841d ago

Heck, the holiday alone will push Xbox 360 sales. It does every year without fail.

I was hoping for a price drop by the time the Gears 3 console would be released or maybe for the R2D2 console, but that looks unlikely at this point with such strong sales....

This site is really pathetic!!!
the ps3 is my favorite console of the three but the ps3 kids here makes me really ashamed and give us, ps3 fans a bad rep.
Smh...

7xsPD2841d ago

You should look at DPsx7 on g4 then

ghaleon19802841d ago

@Neoninja: You knew saying anything overtly positive about the 360 was going to end in a wholelotta disagrees. You realize you're on N4G.com right?

BWHAHAHAHAH, someone hasn't looked at World sales. Also, flaimbait article. Shouldn't have been passed.

newleaf2841d ago

maybe you should send em a link to these worldwide sales...while you're at it, could you post the link here too? Been hearing all about these WW numbers but nobody seems to know where they can be viewed

Give me a break!!!
So now vgcharts is a reliable source???

Excuse me but how SONY AND MS official sources are not reliable while vgcharts is true???

TheGamingArt2841d ago

you do realize that VG does reflect off of the official NPD and fiscal reports and such. Only ignorant people who don't read much into this stuff believe that VG isn't 'around' the right numbers (they usually are )

The article clearly states NA - stop being so defensive and go write an article about WW sales.

ghaleon19802841d ago

@TheGamingArt: You are only calling the article flamebait because it's placing the 360 in a positive light?

_Aarix_2841d ago

Wow...double standard much? Ive seen worse flamebait involving the ps3

Mario4life2841d ago

huh other than kinect i dont see what the xbox has going for it, it just been more of the same as the last few years

chrisgay2841d ago

Well, I have a ton of fun playing my 360 and have done the last few years too. There are too many games for me to keep up with. Maybe fun is what the 360 has going for it. Beyond Kinect I'm looking forward to Skyrim, Gears, Halo and Arkham City this year. Don't act as if Kinect is something to be ignored- it is HUGE. Kinect is the reason the 360 is the only console not just producing more of the same.

It seems the only people who seem concerned about the 360's lineup are Playstation owners. You'd think they'd be too busy playing their myriad of exclusives instead of whining all the time...
