Yet the 360 hasn't managed to put a dent in Wii sales.. or the ps2's record for the 2 year mark.

Celebrating non-victory is what xbots are best at. Xbox has no victory over the competition that has been out as long as it has.

The XBOX 1 flopped in japan. Its like how Xbots celebrated a store which had 50 360's getting sold out.

The 360 isn't trying to break records, the 360 is trying to just sell and that is what it is doing. I don't own a 360 but seriously chill dude, if you want to give a fact or opinion, do it without aggression or insults.

Why does it matter who wins? Is your life better if one console or another wins? Tell me there is a business that cares as much about you as you apparently care for your console of choice. Stop being a fanboy. The non-ignorant thing to say would be: The console race is going to be close and unpredictable this holiday. There ya go.

We forget that Microsoft is a new kid on the block. Sony had a huge fanbase before Microsoft entered the scene. They still do, but Microsoft has taken a big chunk of it. If they have already passed Xbox 1 sales in this short amount of time, then it shows definite growth. They will only get bigger over time.

When Sony came out with PS1, they revolutionized gaming. When Xbox came out, Microsoft didn't revolutionize anything (except for having a hard drive in a game console). They were just trying to do what Sony did, but do it better. In my opinion and in the opinion of many (but not in the opinion of everyone, I know, I know) they have succeeded at doing just that.

LAwman i am sorry but as much as I like the 360 and ps3 I don't think both consoles has a chance on the Wii. I still don't get why people buy this console. I thought the fad would go away in a year but it seems it won't go away and here to stay. So I believe the Wii will win despite ps3 and 360 has better 3rd party games like COD 4, assasins creed, and Orange box.

at least they arrived at 5,well....at least they arrived close to 500,000 in half the time.in 2 more years,they will hit a million sold in japan.can't wait to see that.

while the other two companies are selling over a million consoles in EACH region in 1 year,lets see if microsoft can pull it off in "FOUR."

in order to win overall,you must sell consoles in EACH region.right now the celebration of a onesided victory will be short lived.

can't get to 100 million that way by selling only to the FPS crowd.but good luck to them.

Yet the 360 has more racing/sports/RPG's/Sim games than the PS3. Though I think they are tided on Adventure games. Also the 3 big PS games is *gasp* a shooter. So stop with your stupid as hell "360 is nothing but shooters" crap.

If your going to be a fanboy, at least try and be an intelligent one.

PS3 Limps on and on6034d ago (Edited 6034d ago )

quote "resulting in overall industry growth of 2.2 percent."

notice that, industry growth!! thats what we all should be focusing on. But oh no?? the 1st two posts are sony army typical rhetoric, and the 3rd post is typical xbox army rhetoric.

grow up people. competition keeps prices in line. competition allows for innovation in games.
