...so if we were to adjust sales for comparable time on the market, which console has sold more? I have been wondering this for a while. seems odd that I havent scene this on the forums before. any info would be great.
its boring (been discussed a bazillion times)
irrelevant (an install base is an install base)
and bloody easy to work out.....
so why start a thread to ask?
It hasn't been discussed in a while, and he's wondering about something. Not everybody is brilliantly skilled at working out numbers or operating VGChartz. He's asking a sales related question that hasn't been discussed in the past month as far as I can see. Seece makes brilliant graphs on the subject, but graphs aren't everybody's niche.
It really wouldn't hurt to be a little nice, you know. If you think VGChartz used to be a better place, look at yourself, because being rude and bitchy to people for asking a question is pretty much the worst things go on Vgchartz.
Anyway, here's the sales.
Sales in the 12 months before the launch of Playstation 3:
X360: 5.332 million
First 12 months with the Ps3 on the market:
X360: 7.602 million
Ps3: 5.829 million
Months 13-24 for the Ps3:
X360: 9.262 million
Ps3: 10.064 million
Months 25-36 for the Ps3:
X360: 10.988 million
Ps3: 10.796 million
Months 37-48 for the Ps3:
X360: 11.779 million
Ps3: 14.743 million
Months 49- present for the Ps3:
X360: 6.321 million
Ps3: 5.817 million
Or if you just want the difference between the sales now and back then, the Ps3 has outsold the X360 by roughly 1.3 million since then.
