wow so, VGC undefrtracked xbox 360.

PS3 rather low, because shortage as usual

wait wait, shortage is over  :)


Actually if anything, this month and last months NPD numbers indicate that sales have significantly picked up because of increased stock. Look at May NPD the month that RDR came, only 155k. Whereas now in the middle of the summer slump with no significant software releases and facing stiff competition HW is up almost 40% compared to May. If anything this shows that the biggest thing holding PS3 back for the first 5 months of the year was supply problems.

3. Wipeout HD
4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
5. Super Street Fighter 4

PS3 undertracked again according to this month NPD and the last NPD month aswell why wern't you saying the same thing when ps3 was undertracked last month?

ohh w8 sony over ships ps3, ROFL!



Wow, I'm amazed at the 360 sales for the month.  I knew they would be high but that sky rocketed what I was thinking.

Nice job for the PS3 as well.  Looks like it may be a dog fight for the HD twins over the Wii from here on out (or at least I hope so).

The Wii is continuing to slip farther behind.  I honestly expect a price cut before the holidays to put them back on top.  And then depending on how well the Move and Kinect does that may not be enough.  

Lastly, I think that a lot of people may be purchasing a 360 just to get ready for when the Kinect launches so it won't be such a big smack to the old check book.  If Kinect gets the kind of free press that the Wii did at first I have no doubts it will reign supreme this Christmas time pushing much needed sales for the 360.  

My predictions for Christmas time sales.

1) Xbox 360   2) Wii (only if it has a decent price cut) 3) PS3.

My hopes for Christmas time sales.  1) Xbox 360 2) PS3  3) Wii.

I don't count the DS because its handheld....

xbox 360 undertracked too, remember for last month, and % of undertracked  is higher on xbox360 vs on PS3

but i  think vgchartz doing a great job.

 

next month, probably will be a small bump from 360S 4GB, but maybe not, august is a slow month to begin with.

OH my Lol xD 84K???? Really??? O.o


vgc had it at 54K


If that makes you feel better

What's really funny is you trying to cover up your "surprise". It's sold these numbers now for a long time...

What I personally find amusing is how close the "doomed" PS3 is to the almighty Wii. Nevermind the 360 completely trouncing everything.


Really close.... Wii ~73 Million & Ps3 ~36 million.... closer than i thought... o wait, you mean worthless comparisson sales, like weekly and monthly, which only keeps making the gap even bigger and bigger....

 

OH yeah, really close =)

So in defence of PSP which I never really do but oh well

Going by your logic we shouldn't be laughing at PSP sales since its already sold 59.2 Million and its 84K this month is only increasing the value!


Not really.... that logic applied for the comparisson between 2 consoles. Carl mentioned PS3 and Wii.... you are only talking about psp.... so no, that's not my logic my friend =)

 

Now if you REALLY want to apply my same logic, go on... compare Psp to DS and let's see what happens

No your post sounded like it was bent upon ignoring these "meaningless weekly/monthly sales"....so I applied the same to PSP.

Now between DS and PSP the PSP has always been squashed to a pulp, and deservedly so after comparing their game libraries for me anyway DS is head, shoulders and toes above PSP, I can't say the same about PS3 vs Wii though.

Stop, just face it you are both losers =p.

WoW can't wait for August with the release of the 4GB Xbox 360 Slim. I think almost all of the 360 sales were 250 GB slims and a few 'old' elites. You can't find a $199 Xbox 360 these days (just checked bestbuy and amazon). The 4GB SKU will change that and it might bump sales.

Madden will sell quite well, too.

September is Halo Reach time, with a special edition console. Sales will increase due to holiday boost as well.

October is Fable III time. It won't move much hardware, but sell a nice amount of software.

November is Kinect and CoD Black Ops time. Huge hardware and software boost incoming.

December will see great sales anyway.

Early 2011 we will see Gears of War 3, Crysis 2, Bulletstorm and Rage to keep sales on a high level.



Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

Trackmania? A game that hasn't been released?

Wipeout: The Game is a shocker.

Wii: 7
DS: 6
X360: 4
PS3: 3

Saw the game at the release list of GT, I didn't notice that it was delayed at the laast moment. My Fault.
