Locked: PS3 vs 360 sales for 2008.... NO IT'S NOT A FANBOY THREAD!

Forums - Sales Discussion - PS3 vs 360 sales for 2008.... NO IT'S NOT A FANBOY THREAD!

Let's see if the price cut will help the 360 close that 1.2 million gap. I actually think PS3 will win this year easily. Gamers are tired of RROD, "Exclusives" that aren't exclusive and failed peripherals and "services" such as the "HDDVD" player and Xbox "xtracharge" live.

Xmas is the Election and MS is gonna be looking like the GOP this year.

don't forget that the next 4-5 months will be 360's best months in its life cycle.it's downhill afterward.



 

 

 

@ squillie: don't push your luck :p

You were gunning for "winning q3/q4", then went to "maybe 1 million again" (as a joke or not) and now 1.2 million? :p



the ps3 has definitely not been owning the 360. it has done a good job selling more than the 360 though. it looked inevitable that the ps3 was gonna pass the 360 in overall sales by 2010 since it won every single week for the first 3/4ths of this year. but the 360 price cut has stopped the ps3 comeback in its tracks. i think they will split the holidays pretty evenly and while ps3 will have won this year over 360 by over a million units, stopping the ps3 after the first half of the year i'd say is a win for 360 this gen. if 360 finishes this gen with more sales than ps3 it wins. all it has to do is slow ps3's comeback enough so that 360 won't end up in 3rd this gen.

Wow.

PS3 is pwning 360 this year. Got about 1.2 mln units for 360 to make up on PS3.

It's a shame that Squilliam is only using Q3/Q4 2008 sales for his sig, and not full year sales.

That's great news for Squilliam, actually. 1.2mln units is pwning the 360? Since it's looking like it'll be about a tie this holiday, it'll take 5 years of PS3 pwning for it to actually catch up

I just won $22 from the lottery, I think my lucks pretty good at the moment.

But hey, we'll know as the numbers scale up so these are exciting times.



Tease.

 Im quite new here but im guessing your the resident PS3 fanboy right?

Not quite sure how you can say the PS3 is "pwning" the 360 when in the past 4 months it has been last...If you take away the MGS4 element from PS3 your see its sales would be awful. The thing is since MGS4 was released the PS3 has actually suffered badly. With no games on the radar at the same level worldwide as MGS4 the PS3 was always going to struggle. The fact it has only outsold the 360 in 9 months (have not got oct npd yet) by 1.2m is not good. The 360 is 1 week away from being in it's 4th year on the market. And the PS3 is just about to enter it's 3rd. IF we have a repeat of last xmas which looks likely due to the ratio of software sales already then that lead will be wiped out. By the end of 2008 if things stay as they are the 360 will end it on a + ahead of the PS3 and not a -. If that happens then even the most biased fan such as yourself must admit Sony are out of there. The thing that is keeping PS3 in the mix is europe. But now even those numbers are on the slide with the UK firmly now 360 country.

 

lol...wow..that's like me saying "if you take away the Halo 3 element from the xbox 360 you would see that it's sales would be awful"

you can't just not take into consideration major games

Funny. A year ago, the months after Halo 3 dropped were supposed to be the best months in the 360's cycle.


I guess that's probably why PS3 domination was delayed another year though, right?

 

More interesting to note: For all the hype ("games", blu-ray, brand recognition, it being "better" because it's playstation), it'll take the PS3 at least 3-4 years (we're at 2 and counting) to catch up on a 1 year head start the 360 had, and that's assuming the PS3 continues to outsell the 360 even more than it has done this year.

the ps3 already has taken over the 360 nearly everywhere. its just the gap in america the 360 still holds. you could see that the 360 is slowing down though in america, microsoft had to cut the price to the lowest out of the 3 consoles just to get things moving again and you must admit, last month npd wasnt really good for the 360 at that price. it costs $199 for gods sake! jeez.

dont worry next year after another price cut, the ps3 will be pwning the 360 by 1.2 million per month. even 1.2 million from this year is pwning, considering the 360 has ALWAYS been cheaper than ps3. why does everyone forget that.
