Locked: PS3 selling WORSE than GameCube?

Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 selling WORSE than GameCube?

The most interesting is that the 360 sold way more than PS3. I thought they were more or less the same.



Around the Network

I also see the PS3, GC, and Xbox starting to level off, while the PS2, 360, and Wii, turn upwards. Other than that, this is an unoriginal thread, not only the OP posting something we basically already know, but also darthdividem using this as an excuse to bash Nintendo fans.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

It's also worth remembering that the PS3 is doing worse than the Gamecube, despite two major price drops during its first year. Very bad news for Sony.

 this chart is only for the USA/Canada. Once you include the UK/Japan/Other then the PS3 lines up with the 360. Look at the chart we have on the site. Goto charts then hardware from launch. PS3 and 360 line up.

 WW then yes, they are very much the same. US, no way. 360 has a much bigger pull there.

Worldwides what counts....

 Consoles owned - SNES, N64, PS, GC, PS2, PSP, PS3

 I DO NOT support Xbox

My prediction for YEARS END:

WII - 18.3 Million

Xbox 360 - 15 Million

Playstation 3 - 8.5 Million

This is USA only. Worldwide the PS3 must be at least level if not above the gamecube.



@tombi123

worldwide Ps3 = 360

so basically higher than GC

mainly due to EU tho

why is this new?....we know the GC sold fast early on in USA, and we know the PS3 is doing terribly in the USA.

WW the PS3 is slightly above where the GC was i think (the site is really slow so i cant check the charts)...as far as i can remember it is much higher than what GC was in PAL...and i'm not sure about Japan.

ah, chart loaded, worldwide PS3 is about 900k above the GC in the same timeframe...not sure about the breakdown.



1. I hate these threads. Stop it, please.
2. GC sold ok for one or two years, didn't it?
