Forums - Sales Discussion - xbox 360 top selling console world wide?

I just got up and read this engadget say that MS had the top selling console world wide came here to check if it was something mentioned in their conference and did not see any threads talking about this and the thread on the 360 live feed did not mention it.... so was it talked about there or somewhere else that ms released it, and  where are they getting the numbers? are we overtracking the ps3 or undertracking the 360?

"Before Microsoft had even set off any of its gaming fireworks, Don Mattrick took to the stage to tell us that its Xbox had now graduated from best-selling console in North America to best selling console in the world. We've already seen that new versions of Halo and Splinter Cell are both incoming -- so it looks unlikely that Microsoft's good run will be ending any time soon."

 

off topic*

edit just another thought... man i must not be on enough these days ... just noticed that gamrreview has our news stuff now wonder how many things ive missed by only following latest articles and not both... when did we split those... and man that makes no sense to me

I was surprised at that as well, but you know they had to keep face for the company, I mean I wont be surprised if Nintendo and Sony says that in their conferences later on as well.

Probably shipped for the last quarter.

yes but in this type of information they cannot lie about something that will/can be construed as finical data, it will get them in all kinds of trouble they have to have numbers to back it up. 

 

maybe as aj_habfan says its shipped for the quarter but clarification would be nice, maybe some official rep for vgc can reach out for clarification

Nah, they were talking about 2011. It was pretty obvious.

They must be refering to a specific time period. Quite literally it is impossible for 360 to be the top selling console world wide. Nintendo has outshipped them by quite a few million. (im talking total console sales here obviously XD)

that was the usual statement they made last year. Pretty sure they relate once more to 2011.
