Xbox 360 Vs. Playstation 3 2012 - *February* Update

Forums - Sales Discussion - Xbox 360 Vs. Playstation 3 2012 - *February* Update

Data is in for 2011 and PS3 outsold the X360 by 640,000~ units.

Can the PS3 remain the leader for 2012?



Will update at the end of every sales month.

Original OP

So, Microsoft have said, a few times, that they plan to be #1 in sales, for 2011. Sales not shipments.

What have they got up their sleeve? Are they just talking the talk? Or just bonkers.

I'll track the 360's progress against the only rival above it now, the PS3. (although I do think 3DS will go above both, not sure if MS are counting handhelds)

I don't have any raw figures to back me up and I could just be talking out of my ass. With that said, I've seen it time and again where it's been stated that sales for Oct, Nov, and Dec are equal to or greater than the sales for the other nine months combined. Microsoft is shooting their gaming load in the last few months of the year (Forza, Gears--which was in September, Halo Anniversary, and a few Kinect titles). Who's to say that there won't be some price cut or a big Kinect push, too? Add to that the promise of new dashboard functionality and TV support.

It's definitely possible.

Well, interestingly (and maybe not so surprising) last year PS3 Q4 was below Q1+Q2+Q3 by 1.4M

Xbox 360 Q4 was above Q1+Q2+Q3 by 500k, Wii was above as well but just 200k.

That's a 1.9M difference between PS360 in terms of first 3 Q's and Q4.



 

No, Wii will win. Zelda, Just Dance and the pillow will turn things around.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Will definitely be close, but 360 will likely edge out PS3 in sales.

Will be an interesting tussle.

A price cut for 360 and it does it easily. Without, cant see it.



I'm not really here!

I think it's possible, but, like you say, 3DS may beat both.

Of course, Wii could still win anyway...



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Thanks for creating this topic.

My money is still on the PS3, and the two main reasons are the 1M advantage they already have, plus Uncharted 3 pushing some serious hardware for the PS3 (specially in Americas).

There is no doubt that MW3 and Forza will push 360 hardware, BF3 can push some for the PS3, but I think that PS3 needs to push hardware in Americas. And I think that Uncharted will have some serious role on PS3 boost in there.

If U3 can´t push Hardware in Americas, I think 360 migth have a chance. Those VGC PS3 Americas numbers recently (if true, you got to believe so) are very bad for a console that had a price drop recently.

But we will see.....



without a price cut i don't see it



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.
