Excellent  360, the strongest in America this week, while in EMEAA it's the 2nd weakest, beating just PSP. Overall, though, this week EMEAA is a market a lot stronger than America and the different tastes between the two regions appear quite strong, with Kinect slaughtering Balance Board in America and kicking it out of the Top Ten again, while in EMEAA and WW Kinect beats it, but in a less gruesome way.

What the point of this comment? Talking about a 2 months old acessory outselling another weekly that is 2.5 year old?

My answer to you is included in the one to Conegamer, a few posts before this one.

Good sales for Wii and 360 and Kinect!

Poor PS3, maybe next year it'll be number one

Or...maybe,it won't. I'm sure it'll do fine, but when?

Depends on how you look at it. 360 & PS3 are up YoY for the week, the Wii is down. I wouldn't say the PS3 is in a bad position at all, especially if it remains consistent with early 2010 levels.

Conegamer is comparing PS3 to the sales of the other two consoles.  You're just comparing PS3 sales to itself the previous year.  By that metric, yes, the PS3 is doing great.  But not everyone has to look at things solely from that point of view.

Hence my first sentence: "Depends on how you look at it"

From that approach, you just complimented my point.

PS3 and 360 tied Year to Date.

What data you use for your table.

VGChartz Hardware data for the period 27th Dec 2009 to 25th Dec 2010:
PS3 - 14,394,032
X360- 13,939,173

VGChartz Hardware data for the period 03rd Jan 2010 to 01st Jan 2011:
PS3 - 14,324,107
X360 - 14,271,839

I aways had this question... what better to cover a year?

Statiscally, that's basically a tie (Jan 3, 2010-Jan 1, 2011).

That wasn't said to discredit your point - it is valid, as I said above.

People have their own choice as to how they want to look at the #'s.

He saw the PS3 as in bad shape, which if you compare it to it's competitors, the situation doesn't look so hot. However, if you look at it's individual performance, the situation doesn't look as grim, it's healthy YoY [up], which again, fits comfortably with my first sentence in my response to him.

So all I'm saying to you is, your post compliments that point, not that you tried to discredit anything.



                                                                                                                                            

We all knew that Kinext would sell a lot thanks to the huge marketing push it had and the holiday season. It hasn't even slowed wii sales at all.

The real trial for Kinect starts this month.

Then again there were PS3 shortages in early 2010, so the PS3 might not be as "healthy YoY[up]" as it seems.

360 is just a beast in Americas!

PS3 doing good numbers, but compared to the competition it's a bit disappointing.



2012 - Top 3 [so far]

                                                                             #1                                       #2                                      #3

      

Man these sales threads are really becoming hostile territory now on VGchartz.  

Every one seeing good results and its nice to see three healthy systems on the market at once but OMG at 360 and Kinect sales.  MS has really done an incredible job this gen when you compare it to the original Xbox. They have grown the brand by leaps and bounds.
