Someone that works for microsoft posted on twitter

"Great #NPD start to 2010 for Xbox. Mass Effect 2 killed it, and Xbox beat PS3 handily. "

amazing some dude on twitter says this hours after i said that 360 beat the PS3 and he gets all the credit?

i'll tell ya no respect around here

 

ps3's are low stock especially the 120gb so that the 250gb that go for 350$ are bought so sony can make some dollar there going to discontinue it and have the 250gb for 299$ in august also there will be a 250gb GT5 bundle WW for 300-350$ later on this year

The 10 stores that show up for my location "Out of stock"

Then I go to the major city by me and the 10 in that show there are all out of stock too.

I tried walmart.com but the only ps3 showing up are some website bundles. Maybe I'm just not looking right.

Online: Out-of-stock

I'm trying to think of other major electronic dealers... can't think of any since CC closed.

all in stock

Sorry but i figured those would be the places people might buy them from just as Amazon in uk. And when i saw all versions in stock i thought would be everywhere else. Wallmart is bigger then those places you listed right? 



Best Buy > Walmart for electronics.

Walmart > Target but Target is still the 3rd biggest retailer in US.. I don't know who number 2 is.. maybe Best Buy

And those ps3s on that walmart site are all online only bundles.

Great NPD Jan results to kick-off 2010: Xbox 360 outsells PS3 333K to 277K, Mass Effect 2 does 572K units in just 6 days!



ME2 n PS3 over tracked.

Interesting as i had never heard of Target before in my life. Looking at the website though says the 120gb version (the cheapest version) is in stock too. If you wanted to go collect it then that would suck. But i thought everyone bought from the internet these days hence why shops are doing poor?

And i just linked the all consoles page on Wallmart. Could not see any consoles just on their own.



We have the numbers already?
