Forums - Sales Discussion - When will ps3 outship the xbox360?

 this or next  quarter??



Around the Network
It has already outshipped the X360 if I remember correctly. It just hasn't sold through as many from the retailer side of things.

I read here on vgchartz a couple of months ago(don't remember when) that the ps3 has already outshipped the 360.

I'm pretty sure it already has. The question is where are the sales.
From what we know according to GFK, Media Create, and NPD, the ps3 sales are about a million behind give or take 100k.

Contrastingly, we don't have any data, at least not 100% solid data, on other countries, ie; rest of world. Australia for example.
The big question soon will be, "at what point in the shipped difference, can we plausibly rely on the idea that rest of world has sold enough to consumers whereupon it covers the spread. Cases like these come from Brazil, hey, all of south America, India, Hong Kong, and just about all of Asia and Africa.

Furthermore, I don't think I've ever seen totals all gathered in one place.
Do we have generational totals from NPD, GFK, and Mediacreate?

are we sure?  what was the shippment differential?  MS shipped 1.3M this quarter so how many does sony have to ship to pull ahead?  i was thinking sony was behind by just under a million and i don't see sony shipping 2.3M this quarter.

I'm not sure to be honest but i thought Sony was at 77m shipped and MSFT was at 76m shipped.  I really am not sure.

I believe MS was at 76 as of oct 1, and then as of nov 1, sony was at 77m. It was very close iirc.

Correction: MS was at 70m as of oct 1, and sony said 70m as of nov 4, then a couple months later, a tracking leader said ps3 was at 77m compared to 76m but these were unofficial numbers.

Also:

360 totals for this quarter are at 77.2m and said they shipped 1.3m this quarter, and on January 9, IDC said 360 shipments were 76m. That would mean that IDC had the correct numbers available as far as 76m on Jan 9.
This could imply that Sony had in fact sold 77m, however, Jack Tretton on Feb 21, said that ps3 had sold around 77m. So it could either mean that they JUST got to 77m, or he was simply referring to the IDC report from a month earlier, or really anything.

Point is, like Tretton said, at this point it's splitting hairs.

no no, "that guy" (forget who made the quote) said it sort of off the cuff mid quarter.  so MS was at 76 and sony was at whatever it was at the previous quarter plus part of a quarter plus whatever rounding went into that guy's head.  BUT... considering how long sony has been combinding ps2 with ps3 it was sort of a big deal because we don't really,. "know".  gaf has their estimates and from what i remember their best guess was ps3 was behind by ~0.9M at the end of last quarter.

..or something.  there is a lot of FUD in ps3's numbers.
