Lifetime-to-date and year-to-date hardware figures for the PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, 3DS and DS based on the most recent NPD sales data have been revealed.
For a console that is supposed to be "not selling" the 3DS is doing just fine....lol. And I thought the Wii was "dead"? N4G needs new material. And look at the DS...I mean is Nintendo da doomed? LMAO
this is heat article :P but wow at wii numbers. thanks
Alright, for those of you always asking why PS3 games tend to sell less than the 360 version NA, there's you're answer- The 360 Leads by almost ELEVEN MILLION units. I'd be pretty astonished if it didn't sell more games. And, I'm not sure about this, but I believe that both systems have the same overall attach rate , no?
Yes, yes they do
"For a console that is supposed to be "not selling" the 3DS is doing just fine....lol" Launch plus 6 months and it's only sold 1 million. That is NOT impressive. The Nintendo DS sold more than that in ONE month in the NA region. But I guess if less than 1/6 of the DS's success is a massive blow to 3DS "haterzzzz" in your mind, then we should probably go let Atari Lynx "haterzzzz" know how wrong they were, too.
This number isn't worldwide so I understand the 3DS is most likely 5 million sold. That is just fine and you know it! I didn't say "amazing". But you just pay attention to the fact psp numbers weren't even mentioned in america...lol. 3DS #1 conole worldwide for like 5 weeks straight. Deal with it.
It's nice to see the PSP hanging in there strong.
wii is doing pretty bad. not even 5 years on market and already cost 150$ with game included. ps2 without game cost 100$ LOL ps3 ATM cost same as wii at launch x360 has biggest marketing support in US. x360 hit 200$ price even before wii LOL
Are you a Sony share holder or a customer? Last time I checked a cheaper price is good for us the customers.
@petko23...Are you nuts? The Wii started at $249 and after almost 5 years is now $149. Why in the hell wouldn't it be?
This petko23 dude keeps sending incoherent pm's to me about sales figures and whatnot, although I've never contacted or commented on him. He seems a bit psychotic.
They're funny sorts. The current state of this gen has that effect. I find those type of pm's the most satisfying though as you can almost feel the absurdly upset and rage they are feelng inside
haha same here. It is just copy/paste style though. He must spend hours for this shit.
Hey Jelly, he sends the same endless numbers too me aswell. If you make a few rational points, he gos nuts. Try it.
@EasilyTheBest - I did. He didn't answer so I guess I succeeded. :)
How is the Wii doing bad when it has sold over twice as much as the Ps3?
The world we're in now is like some strange other existing world like our own where Sony isn't the only important thing anymore. Anyone here expecting to wake up and find out this has all been a dream. What MS has achieved this time in America is fairly astounding given Sony's total dominance here
I love the smell of a flame war brewin' in the morning.
New core gamers are created every year as those Nintendo kid get a bit older, they start craving more depth in their games. Will be interesting to see how this holiday season plays out sales wise, in this economy, with the seller selection of core and casual game coming. If sales stay this high, we could see 360 selling about 6+ mil, Wii 5+ mil and PS3 4+ mil in the Americas alone. Then you add Europle and the rest of the world, and we are talking 8-10 mil world wide per console. These types of numbers are the main reasons for Sony and M$ talking 2014, at the earliest, for the next gen of consoles. I would ask people to take note of NPD saying that M$ SOLD ove 28,000,000 360's in the Americas alone. So please do not submit any more article stating otherwise. Some one recently posted an article where some analyst for Japan had 360 at 32 mil world wide and PS3 at 34 mil SOLD as proof that PS3 has taken the WW sales lead. It is possible that PS3 has taken the lead over 360 WW, but I see no evidence that this is the case.
Nice to see that the PS3 is doing well in the states.
Imagine if you showed Sony these numbers back around 2005, when they were completely dominating the North American market with the PS2. They would never have believed it. I wouldn't have either. It is incredible how far Microsoft has come this gen.
Yes, just think of how much more than a year head start could do to a console.
Great numbers for all consoles, the Xbox360's lead just shows how badly Sony dropped the ball with the $600 PS3 launch. Microsoft was just smarter this time around, and took advantage of their 1 year head start. Nintendo's casual route will bite them in the ass next gen. And sony hopefully learns from their mistakes.
I wonder if M$ counts the free 360s that they are giving away with their laptops?.Also i cant believe the PS3 sold only 17 mill in the US vs 28 Mill for the 360 something seems fishy here.
They do count them, since they're counting shipped consoles.
