Forums - Sales Discussion - The PS3/Xbox 360 Holiday Sales Gap Thread! (Updated: January 11th) - ADJUSTMENTS! Last week is UP!, PS3 and X360 basically back to where the table began, PS3 1.5 million sold more then X360 in 2012

It's that time of the year people sales are going to exploded over the next couple months and those boring summer sales are now over! Many big games have yet to release (including Halo 4 numbers) and we may even see some record setting numbers this holiday. This thread is dedicated solely for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and how close the sales gap will get within the next two months. A lot can happen in the next 10 weeks, the PS3 could close the gap completely or the Xbox 360 could even double the gap. I'll be starting witht the sales ending November 3rd 2012 and finishing on the week ending January 5th 2013, that's 10 weeks.

Feel free to make a total prediciton of what the gap will be by the end of January 5th.

2012 Current Gap

Week PS3 Total Xbox 360 Total Gap

January 5

11,277,199 9,806,002 1,471,197 (PS3)

 

I'll update the list weekly, if I can ever figure some of this out I'll create some graphs as well. Should be another interesting holiday guys!

I'll usually wait a day or two after Worldwide sales are released incase of adjustments, I'm expecting some big adjustments aswell from the NDP numbers so I may have to change what's there, unless they were already changed.

My favorite 2 months of the year and my favourite thread every year! :D

Next week is Halo 4 bundles. Week after is Cod bundles. Then Black Friday?

Just gonna sit back with a smile on my face.

___________

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

Over the next 3 Weeks the gap will increase by over 500,000 units.

Halo - CoD - Black Friday

Yey for huge sales!

Truly it is. But when in doubt I look at the Vgchartz homepage and see that glorious bar graph. And all becomes right in the world

Nicely done. Will watch with interest. Although clearly there are some rather serious tracking issues right now.

You know if that doesn't pan out you will need to invent a new word for the expression your face will have....Sandger...Frustrapointment...Hatempt...well, I'll help you come up with something in case it happens.



Before the PS3 everyone was nice to me :(

you should add wii U to the mix.

Goal Post Chartz             

Looks like sales will be far lower this year in USA than they were last year. Bodes well for PS3 in this battle, although it won't win this period.
