this gen is going to be weird, the 360 will probably stay ahead of the ps3 in america whilst the ps3 will be molesting the 360 over in europe and japan. especially in europe, once that price drops i see the ps3 going crazy in europe. not wii crazy but crazy enough to give the 360 a good ass kicking while it will be the other way round in america.

The numbers don't look good at all. Not really a boring month just a depressing one.



95% of gamers don't know they are noobs, the 5% who do won't be noobs for long

Sony will be crawling around on the floor having seen these numbers, all these months of low software sales will only bring that price drop closer and closer. One needs a PS3 to play PS3 games, Sony need the $100 sooner rather then later.

One thing is for sure, release GT5 with the console still $400 = Sony are officially retarded

SONY can't drop the price till next year simple as that

for SONY as long as 2007 numbers don't come back they are happy

 

muhahah... Someone finally opened their eyes!!!

Some of us have been stating this SINCE DECEMBER 2008!!!!

Patience is a virtue. Each month more and more ppl are realizing it.

 



Oh look at that, the Nintendo tag team win again. 

 



X360 fans rejoice! Gap 110K we should be content with for now.

I perdict PS3 279,000 and the X360 366,000.

You can quote me on this.

 

 PS3 218,000 and the X360 330,000

Perdicted gap 87,000 became 112,000. Well done X360!



Chris Kohler has posted the top ten games by platform and the top twenty overall. I've made some estimates based on some known points. The main thing is Resistance PSP selling under 55k, Madworld at 66k, GTA DS at 89k, and none of them were in the top twenty which means the top twenty all sold at least 89,000 units...

Red values are estimates based on known information that puts data between two points, pink values are just complete guesses on my part.
