Locked: GTA IV the beginning of the end of the XBOX 360?

Forums - Sales Discussion - GTA IV the beginning of the end of the XBOX 360?

another beginning of an end for 360.
How many do they have to have?

When will it be the next 'beginning of an end for 360? when GOW2 only sells 5m.

I think ioi's got his numbers wrong..

If Sony consoles had outsold the 360, Sony would of had a press release, and a small party to congratulate themselves..

anyways will see what happens

i say yes, its the start of the end.

After GTA4, all thats left is Gears 2 along with some possible sleepers along the way such as too human and fable 2.

 Wait, you mean that selling a MILIION more copies of its antagonist biggest franchize on launch week (weeks to come will stabilize in a solid 2:1, pure math) and GAINING a big part of the previous PS2 casual adopters of the GTA series?

What id gonna happen now. I counted almost 100 announced 360 games for the next 2 years. Are they CANCELLED?

Proper thread for Rock_on. Not for a guy with 6000 posts... Pity.

Your fanboyism blinded you again.

And, guys. In the launch week of the biggest game of this generation, Wii sold like CRAZY. I guess that the PS2 of this generation is judged. Let the XBOX and the Gamecube fight each other once again. Deja Vu!

 i don't think that those games (including GeoW 2) are going to sell very many 360s.  GTA IV had 5x the hype that Too Human, Fable 2, and don't forget NGS 2, and GTA IV only managed to move 120k consoles, I doubt the weeks of these games the 360 will sell more than in a typical week, maybe 10% more, but that will be about it.  GeoW 2 is not going to move hardware like people think.  People who want that type of game already bought a 360 for GeoW, Halo 3, or Bioshock, there can't be that many people out there that find GeoW2 worth picking up a 360 over, but not GeoW Halo3, or Bioshock.  However, those shooting fans that picked up a 360 for those awesome shooters will be adding a PS3 to their collection for the Killzone 2, Resistance 2, SOCOM shoooting trifecta.

Ahh...

360's last stand, software.

What's next? Revenue? LULZ

Let me get this straight.


Software:

X360 - 2.317 million

PS3 - 1.386 million

 

Hardware:

X360 - 119,345

PS3 - 145,196

 

And you think the X360 is at the beginning of the end?

 

 


 Well, he could say that seeing as how the userbase in NA is heavily in favor of the 360.

360- 11.72M

PS3- 4.88M

Then, considering the PS3 sold more than 50% of what the 360 sold, the PS3 did very well.

360- 2.317M

PS3- 1.386M

 I won't say that this is the beginning of the end, because the 360 still moved 2.3 mil copies of the game which is darn impressive, and almost a full 1 mil ahead of the PS3.

Disclaimer: I am not a fanboy of either console, though the PS3 is my console of choice. I don't think that the 360 is doomed at all.

 i seriously doubt that, they'll wait for NPD.



...I really feel sorry for the mods this week, I'm sure they'd love to just sit back and enjoy their GTA4 experience but all these fanboys and flame wars aren't helping them...justforeggs your brain must be made of eggs...scrambled.
