Business as usual for the 360 in NA. Where the 360 $100 gift cards deals tracked in this week???

As for the PS3, it still is less then 50k away weekly in NA (IMO that is good considering how strong 360 is in there), but if you take into account U3 release, I think it would be expected some boost, even if minimal. Still, last year, with Kinect release, 360 outsold PS3 by 155k, so from that stand point, it is a big improvment for the PS3 in comparison to the HD rival

As for the Wii, as I was expecting, that console is too cheap to not sell well in the Holidays. Wii is going to be a monster, money is crucial, even if not a lot of new games are coming out.

U3, some people will call it a flop, some will say it is a great FW, I say, it is all going to be about SEXY legs, what can it sell.... IDK, all I know is that it did better then U2.... for the FW.

As a PS3 gamer I was expecting more, unfortunately PS3 gamers prefer first person shooters to everything else in existence, which is sad if you consider the quality of those games lately.

yeah it seems like there are only 20 guys in this forum haha every thread the same guys

There are probably more alt accounts than individual active users.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I knew you would say that. You should get used to it, because it's Shooter Season 2011, and there's plenty of other seasons to come -- sadly.



Good sales all around, UC3 didn't really have a HW boost though.

are you looking at the same numbers i am?   ... the only monster in NA right now is the 360/kinect.



Nice, all three home consoles on top. My guesses are that the PS3 sales on EMEAA and Japan will put it up top followed by 360, 3DS and then the Wii.

U3 sales looked solid. EMEAA and Japan should put it up to 1mil, which if I recall is actually an increase on U2, which sold 850k first week. It can easily go to sell 5 mil lifetime like U2.

I hoped Sonic generations would do better :(

Definitely but don't worry, this game will be traded in a lot and sold whewn MW3 comes around.

 

Uncharted 3 definitely is 150-200k Short of what it should have been. Seriously.

..i can't say i was expecting much but to be tied with the wii for worst WoW is just ... diappointing.  :(

U2 open in the americas at 417k so at least it is growing software wise.

Yep, I am looking at the same numbers as you. I am talking WW, I think the Wii will be the best selling console in December WW, so that is why I say it will be a monster. As for rigth now, yes 360 is a monster in NA, as I also said in that post.

My point is that even tho they had a very weak year so far, the Wii will sell great in November/December just on price alone.
