^yeah, but they never have an unlimited quantity, they specify how many they are going to make deals of before they start this.
And it's not while 360 console supplies last, it's how long the gift card quantity lasts. Sure a store should have thousands of gift cards lying around, but at any point they can just say, "we don't have any more 360 gift cards available", yet they would still be able to sell those non-giftcard-360s to people who have already concluded to buy one.

It's while 360 supplies last.  Their giftcards are pretty much unlimited.  It takes any card, not some special one for the 360 deal.  They can take any Walmart giftcard and apply the $100 deal to, even to existing gift cards people already own.  I was asked when I purchased my 360 if I wanted the gift card balance added to an existing one.

And as far as the "while supplies last" I was told by the Walmart manager it was while they kept getting 360 shipments.

In the commercial?  I'll see if I can find it on YouTube or something.  Either way, like I said, the gift cards supply is pretty unlimited and applies to any gift card, not just some special ones reserved for this deal.

Only in America, dunno if it'll be enough for WW but even so, PS3 will likely climb back on top.

This. 

PS3 is dominating in Others by like 50k each week and in Japan by like 25k each week. The North America boost will be huge for the 360 but I doubt its enough for them to take top spot in November over PS3. And there's no way the 400% boost last more then 1 week. I bet its back down to normal numbers within 2-3 weeks. 



Considering the buyers are basically getting a 360 for $100, those are very horrible numbers. The PS3 will probably sell around 250 000 units, while the 360 will sell around that too, or maybe even higher, but considering there is a $200 difference in price (Im counting the gift card they receive), the PS3 has nothing to worry about.

what the hell are you on? 400% just in wal-mart, just in america, the people who buy COD:MW2 are donna be the people who regularly by COD games. They aren't gonna sell their 360's just so they can buy the new one just because it has a big yellow 2 on it. After higher Tekken 6 sales on PS3 (which was imminent) we all cona only expect higher COD sales on PS3 for two reasons: Lower price. Slim version, PS popularity over the XBOX.



 


PS3 Trophies

DS: 120,000,000; Wii: 60,000,000; Xbox 360: 38,000,000; PlayStation 3: 34,000,000; PlayStation Portable: 60,000,000

PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Others= A bunch of other EU countires put together. I'd like to see sales for the single countries to see which system sells the most in what country. Why don't we count those Australian sales? Aussies buy alot of games (even if most are horrendously censored).

What?  Are you saying the PS3 version will sell more than the 360 version?

Also, to those saying this is aweful for a $99 Xbox 360, this is a limited deal to one store that saw 400% increase from a gift card offer on a $199 Xbox 360.  If it were an across the board straight $99 Xbox 360 everywhere, this would have seen like a 500% increase WW at the least.

i really dont care how they do this month b/c in the long run it wont last. For a majority of next year a lot of the major titles will be on PS3 and multiplats are already starting to sell better on PS3. Apart from Mass effect 2, i dont see that many titles coming next year for the 360 in fact it looks pretty dismal to say the least

Lets see next year Fable 3, Halo Reach, Crackdown 2, Mechwarrior, Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake and more games will be coming out next  year. Microsofts most impressive AAA fleet will be unveiled next year. I hope they don't announce any secret games at E3 because Microsoft will definitely have the best 2010. Sony's major games next year are FFXIII Versus and GT, while Microsoft has Halo Reach, Mass Effect 2 and Fablee 3 as three power hitters.

Looking at preorders for MAG, I would argue Sony has 4 Big games already announced for next year. Those being: GT5, FFXIII Versus, MAG, and GoW III. And from what I heard from friends Fable 2 sucked, so why would that be big? And possibly the biggest secret of all Rockstar's Agent is slated for next year.

1. MAG has no where near as many preorers as a "big" game.

2. Fable 2 was a great game that sold to over 3 million people.  Some people didn't like it, but most did.

3. Agent is not slated for next year.  It has never even been hinted at having a release date yet.  Wait and see before making things up.

1. As someone already mentioned, MAG's preorders are above ME2's so stfu.

2. Fair enough.
