"While video game retail sales show a very slight decline versus last July, we have to consider the success of Starcraft II this month, which helped the PC games category to realize a 103% increase in dollars over last July. PC Games and video game industry sales combined for an increase of 4% in revenues as compared to July'09."



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Just wow at those 360 numbers. It was only like 20k off doing more sales then PS3 and Wii combined! That is mental.

What is funny though is it goes to show Patchter and that EDAR group or whatever they are called have no clue what they are talking about. Even though VGC undetracked 360 by a shit load they were still closer then those guy's and they are paid to get this stuff right!

I guess MS finally sorted out getting stock to stores now then. If the arcade has no issues i think next month we will see even higher numbers.

What is also interesting is next months numbers mark the last numbers prior to the PS3 price cut/re-model. In august 2009 it did 210k. It could actually be possible that next months numbers will see the PS3 down year over year for the first time since the price cut. That is if it stays at the average it is at now of course.



It seems the 360 SALES is not affecting the PS3 at all. Great sales though for MS.

That's quite intriguing. Even in it's weakest region while facing huge competition and with no huge software releases in the middle of the summer slump hardware still remains relatively high.

I guess I have to admit the X360 is pretty much set to keep it's weekly first place through the rest of this generation. Software sales are another matter...

lol

Whenever the week comes where PS3's price is cut to $199, I'll eat my hand if PS3 doesn't outsell Xbox 360 that week


I would be not so sure dude. Right now the PS3 still seems to be pretty expensive to produce, like some $280 until it reaches the shelves... by the time it is able to get down to $199 it will be pretty much irrelevant like when the PS2 got to $99.

wat the hell are you smoking?????

it will be easily be able to be $199 next year and it won't be anywhere near irrelevant

Worse, it will be time for Wii 2 to release. 

Wii2 isn't coming till 2012 atleast and 2013 at max

Which hope Sony could have going against something likely to release with as much hype and support as the 3DS is having right now?

Wii's recent decline doesn't give a sign towards hype.hype is mostly created when some hardcore are waiting for the product and then the casuals join because of the COOL thing everybody's been waiting for,wii isn't like that much by hardcore's




If the best you can do is insulting me by suggesting my post was actually affected by some smokeable drug (DMT? Crack? Good ol' pot?) then we aren't going far here. Actually it fits best your own third answer because apparently your completely misunderstood what I've said there.
