Why everyone is trying to say XBOX and PS3 is a statistical tie.??? i mean 50k is not that much meager either.. its 1.5 million dollar sales for PS3. :$ and we can also say maybe PS3 had 100k lead and NPD is showing it less.. it should be taken as +/-25k for each console instead of only +25k for XBOX and -25k for PS3 to make it a tie. :$..

i think XBOX has even won by 900 units.. it was something like 287.1k and 288k.. So it was a win for XBOX so this is a win for PS3

No... that would also be a statistical tie.  They would both be statistical ties.

wow, 360 fans doing damage control already. If this was the other way around, there would be a seperate thread already saying "360 beats PS3". All consoles did great but PS3 beat out 360 in every region of the world in the biggest month of the yr.


could you quote the damage control please? I am asking because I did not see it.


That's okay if you didn't see it,  i know it's 1 am there and your too tired to read the thread  :)

December was a massive success for all companies in 2009. Nintendo managed to move tons of hardware and software, while Sony and Microsoft had a very successful end of the year bang with hardware sales. New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the biggest selling title on Wii in December, with sales likely to stay strong well into 2010.

Wii:3.81M,
PS3, 1.36M
Xbox 360 1.31M

Ps3 BEATS 360 OMGGGGGGG!

Not really.

1.36 vs 1.31 is a statistical tie.

I really wouldn't call it beating it based on how NPD numbers are calculated.

 

You wouldn't but I would

PS3 BEAT 360!! (by around 50K too)

This was a shocker to me, but less so after the SONY internal reports said 1.35 Million were sold

Well i'll put it this way.

Anyone who knows anything about statistics and the kind of thing NPD does wouldn't say the PS3 beat the 360.

It's well within the margin of error.


As for the Wii numbers... seems unbeleivable to me.

So what?

seriously are you really getting this deep into me just saying "PS3 beat 360" (which no-one was expecting), in pure numbers that did happen, chill out

It didn't though.  Because of the "margin of error."  The PS3 didn't sell 1.36 and the 360 didn't sell 1.31.


The Ps3 sold ~1.36 and the 360 sold ~1.31.

It's a big difference.


It's also not "getting into you."  It's stating a fact for people who don't know much about statistics.

No I will continue to say PS3 beat 360 in december 2009, because it clearly did according to the numbers

you continue saying it was "within margin of error" so they were equal & be happy that you know more about statistics than most other people



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

the Wii numbers just make the other numbers feel unimportant.

LOL,  do you want me to get your quotes.

Let me repeat : THE PS3 BEAT THE 360 IN AMERICA IN DECEMBER.

that's huge.


So on the one hand we have the best sales ever reported by NPD for any console of every generation. But thats unimportant, because there is a 50k difference between no. 2 and 3?

Kowenicki is right. This was Nintendos month. Nothing else.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

Nintendo said they sold 3 million in the USA in December

So how come npd says they sold 3.81??

Doesn't make sense

Lovers of X-box are trying to spin that BS, meanwhile they used to jizz in their pants when the 360 would beat PS3 by 6k early last year. Bottom line is these sales for the 360 are a death rattle.



Nintendo don't need 3rd party, there first party alone is enough. Just amazing.


I am so happy with this NPD.

Even the PSP sold a copy.

Winning is winning.

Or is there a rule now on how many sales it takes for it to automatically be a "statistical tie"?



Yeah it's pretty much QFT

F-ck Sony

F-ck Microsoft

This was Nintendo's month. Unreal numbers. Yeah the others did "alright", but it's all about Nintendo for this Christmas. This level of sales may never be seen again in the game industry ... that's just insane.
