Find out which system came out on top in Japan for the months of June and July.
Good to see the 3DS on top.
Looks like the psp is alive and well also...cant wait for vita
You know whats funny about all this my console is better than yours BS - the fact that it keeps repeating every time these number come up and MS SONY and Nintendo are not going anywhere and will still be here next gen. Those wishing for x company to die are in for a rude surprise because in reality all 3 companies are making a profit. Sure both Sony and MS would love to do Wii numbers but being No.1 is not as important asking making a profit. Keep playing the copy and paste numbers games because next gen the cycle will start all over.
The funny part about it is that everyone still thinks Japan matters. Japan matters for game sales as much as Australia.
all but xbox 360 rose greatly from previous month. good job. Xbox 360 slightly dropped but it shows that minority of Japanese still buying it despite reports of some retailers discontinuing selling it.
ooo disagree fairies. probably illiterate truants
Lol, I the n4g xbox spinsters just keep on spinning.
both 360 and ps3 fanboys are pathetic! and i am sure i will see you in the npd thread that will drop in a couple of weeks.
Yea MaximusPrime, I guess people didn't read the "All but" part of your sentence before disagreeing. I also love how people love to say that Microsoft is still 3million consoles ahead of ps3. How many different chipset has the 360 had already? Falcon/Jasper/Slim with both Falcon/Jasper promising to eliminate RROD and the SLIM was the only one who managed to do so. They're called repurchases people. That's why when NPD rolls out you don't see the direct translation of the 25million+ install base over to game sales.
1. rrod replacements are refurbed, refurbed are previously sold fixed units, doesnt count as a new sale 2. buying replacements arent the only reason ppl would rebuy the same console...ive know 2 friends that have 2 ps3 each for different rooms or cause of siblings and 2 ppl (one is myself) with 2 working 360s for the same reason...you cant possibly assume that 360 owners are the only ones buying multiple consoles of the same brand 3. a direct translation between hardware and software totals of any given month could be skewed for any number of reasons...no games worth buying, games wanted arent released yet, etc EDIT: replaced 1 with 2 for ppl with multiple 360s
Microsoft didn't start covering RRODs until late 2006 after they were slapped with a fat lawsuit. In between that time people had no other choice but to repurchase another 360. I'm living proof of this. RROD was not covered in anyone's warranty. Since it was the only Next gen system available at the time you didn't really have a choice. When I say games, I mean exclusives.
I have also purchased multiple new 360s. A bit of a waste considering the only games that were worthwhile (excluding multiplats) were Halo and Lost Odyssey. My flatmate is on his second, and I know 3 other people also on their second.
I have had this conversation before with someone and so I decided to do a little figuring out. Muerte you have a point. The 3 year warranty wasn't introduced until a year later, which replaced the 1 year warranty that was on the 360. After I had finished my calculations determining at which points the console wouldn't have been covered and using the OFFICIAL faulty console percentage of 36.4% and NOT the BS 56.4% that many on this site like to think the accurate number. Basically all in all, it cam down to this. It it POSSIB:E but NOT PROBABLE (unless MS give out actual numbers) that there could have been around 3 million console replacements. Which means MS COULD have sold around 6 million consoles to the same single 360 console owner, 3 million for the initial and then 3 million for a replacement that were out of warranty during the first year and a half. Now 3 million repurchases is NOTHING considering MS have sold roughly 55 million consoles ytd. If you were one that bought a new 360 due to the out of warranty RROD, then I feel bad for ya as you repurchased it during a time where the 360 was at it's most expensive price. However, I would like to know how many people had to pay $125 for PS3 repairs that were not covered under warranty or because the 1 year warranty expired. I would also like to know how many people replaced their PS3 due to YLOD simply because the 1 year warranty expired. As of right now for the last 4 years, the PS3 has a 1 year warranty while the 360 has a 3 year warranty. So the last 4 years it is possible that more PS3 owners have had to replace their PS3's than 360 owners. Currently Sony have stated that their failure rate is 3% which is the acceptable business standard rate. No other proof would determine otherwise so lets accept it at 3%. That means that about 1.4 million PS3 up to the year 2010 possibly but NOT probably could have had to be repurchased due to faulty hardware outside of their warranty. That means Sony could have gotten roughly 2.8 million sales off of single owner purchases. Still way below the 6 million MS could possibly but not probably have had. That is almost a 3 million difference and I would say that MS and Sony are tied right now sales wise and that both are owning the same amount of market. But, it is what it is and the 360 still managers to sell strong despite it's questionable faulty first year and a half launch.
by this argument, sony should get out of all markets except japan with the PSP
First of all. . . What argument? Does the PSP sell as "well" around the world as the 360 does in Japan? I'd imagine that it sells quite a bit better.
Well, it just goes to show.
So much for 3DS selling badly. lol
psp/vita fanboys are eating humble pie......just wait till august/september numbers....nintendo is through the roof now.
Well Americans tend to buy Japanese products. 41mil Wii's sold in NA alone. 360 numbers are pathetic. Time to pull the rip cord. @brightfalls76 the real story is that M$ had a year headstart and now they have lost that.
BrightFalls76 Does not work that way, you can't keep market share for a new generation, things change. Look at iphone, Most people are going to Android now and as android os get better and better, nobody will care about iphone. Only apple fans. Gamecube was a pos. Wii appealed to casuals -SOLD!!! Dreamcast was pulled too early - no support,fukin idiots. Ps1 ROCKED. ps2 Do so well, not just because of games. DVD as standard. xbox360 sells because 1year head start and was the first nextgen console with a year+ head start - SOLD!! PS3 came late, overpriced and with hardly any developers knowing how to use the hardware. So for what the console has had against it, SONY has done well imo.
O I laugh ay the fanboys claiming the 360 is dead lol Deluded fools
sorry to break the news but 2 exclusive IPs in the last 3 years is DEAD. gears and halo anyone? bro that was 2007 get a new game lmao . no reason to own a xbox at this point . Many reasons to buy a PS3 for new games or a PC for the graphics.
PC is not only about graphics But yes, 360 is a bit pointless right now - unless you already have one and want to play multiplats on it or something.
The 360 is dead. In Japan. Your delusional if you think otherwise. What's funny is 360 fans thought the PS3 was dead. The PS3 may not sell as much as the 360 in NA but it's selling well and at a higher price point. Unlike the 360 in Japan which has not broke the 2m mark in Japan yet. The way that the media has tried to rip the PS3 apart, it has maintained well under the pressure. The PS3 is selling faster than 360. http://www.businessinsider.... "All in all, sales for 2011 look good for the PS3. Sales are expected to reach 15.7 million units for the year. Xbox 360 is forecasted to bring in around 13.7 million for 2011 by contrast." If this holds true the PS3 will have outsold the 360 for the 4th year in the row. The PS3 hit it's stride 3yrs ago when it outsold the 360 ww. There is no stopping the PS3 now especially at 249.99.
Well i believe more people have said the PS3 is dead since it came out then the 360 so lol at you.And its dead in japan not the world.
lol the 360 is a POS with no games 4 life
and LOL @ people using NPD to try to defend their precious 360. Sorry but I don't think the PS3 is doing nearly as bad in NA as the 360 is doing in Japan
DAMN, the PS3 has Japan and still coudnt reach even 360 sales after 5 years, lol... still 3 Million behind although 6 Million consoles alone in Japan were sold. Poor PS3.. it will stay on last place this gen :)
show us those real numbers mr. MS
The PS3 sold more than the 360 after 5 years. I know you don't actually care about what you say, but there you have it. Even VGChartz shows it.
Isn't it even more funnier that the 360 had a full year head start and got beat badly by the Wii and is just barely ahead of the PS3? (Who's price btw is still much more expensive than the competition)
is that you Bill Gates?
So let me get this straight...if a persons console of choice does well, do they get a check from said company? LMAO at these fanboys.Who cares who sells how much ,just enjoy gaming.I could cares less if the atari 1600 made a comeback and outsold everyone,I'm still just gona play whatever sparks my interest.
I seriously can not wait for the day that it's official that even 1 more PS3 has sold worldwide, than the xbox360 and I'll take a holiday, take my friends xbox360 (he has a ps3 so he won't be bored) and set it on fire and dance around it, and laugh til i'm drunk and fall down =) Bring it on! (Here Skittles *runs to play with imaginary pet tiger*)
set it on fire and dance around it,had me lol n.
dont you mean the day that the ps3 outsells the 360 in NA? because the PS3 has been outselling the 360 world-wide for the past 3 years.
is it that serious???
It sets itself on fire,.. just run it for 6-8 hours straight,.
That's True, and then after the flames die down I can Wrap a Towel around it, and it'll magically work again! Edit: for about 20 seconds...
Holy crap! The PSP-Go still alive!
let me give you 360 fans an insight into the word pathetic. 360 16 months headstart all over europe. thats TWO EXTRA holidays and ps3 overtook it within 2 years over there. now THAT is pathetic. every 360 fan is pathetic because none of them ever take the headstart into factor to make the 360 look good, when in reality it has always been the worst selling console. just watch next gen, as liong as they release same time microsoft have no chance against nintendo and sony and they wont have price advantage either.
Pathetic is too big a word for them. Don't bother.
pathetic is idiots like you two that for some reason get erect when they sea these threads.. but i am sure you will both be all over the npd numbers when they show the 360 ahead of the precious. turds
Oh, an internet tough guy. Spelling checker is your best friend.
Japan != World.
U.S != World.
man look how bad 3ds did in japan in june and july lol!! well n4g users all summer long yinz said over and over how bad 3ds was doing in japan.and now we know it sold the most and whats most surprising is everyone said it has no good games out for it.and i know but it had zelda well i guess zelda was enough to keep it at the top.man i can't wait to see when great games are released every month how it does!!
King PS2 still going strong.
When did the PS3 have a price drop in japan?
Xbox 360 is beating PS2 in sales. At least Xbox fanboys can find solace in that. Come on guys why not brag about the "Xbox 360 beating the best selling console ever in it's home country?" That would be a nice spin.
PS2 = 153 million sales world wide. PS3 = 52 million sales world wide. Xbox 360 = 55 million world wide. Don't see how the 360 is anywhere near the PS2's sales.
think he meant current weekly sales. 360 outsold ps2 by 2000 units in japan last month. lol
I also think he was being sarcastic with his comment. lol!
