Who do you think will reach 70m... Xbox or Ps3.


They will both reach 70m

if you are asking who will reach it first.... I'd say the 360.

Why is there that big of a difference between the 58.7 million for X360 sales on the front page of VGC while in this thread Seece says 60 million?

Also I dont understand where all these sales are coming from. How can X360 outsell 2010 when its got no formal price drop? Also Kinect sales have beel slumping thru all year so it's hard to understand where that boost comes from.


because the front page isnt updated yet.

because the 360 has become the console the casuals want, 2012 may well go big again with the loooong overdue price cut..

because we may have been undertracking the Kinect impact all year OR/AND kinect is a holiday phenomenon which helps the second reason i give.

Me too, should have probably started this in a new thread... It's a potential flame war topic.

Either he's speaking ahead of updates or talking about official shipped numbers.  In the industry the shipped numbers define the public sales.  60 million shipped with 58.7 million sold seems acceptable.

Can't seem to find the post you mention so hard to say without reading his actual words.  Seece is normaly pretty clear in his statements.


lol.  what?  shipment will have passed 60m long ago... they all ship like crazy for the holiday push.

its obvious..  the chart hasnt been updated.  its 58.7 even thought the USA, UK, German sales have been updated for the week.

58.7 is to the end of the previous week...

No no no this weeks numbers have not been added to the bar graph on the main page yet. What you can see there are the numbers before Black Friday week. With the rest of the regions coming in, the 360 will be above 60M for the BF week.

 

EDIT: Meh too late

That's exactly what I said - he's either speaking ahead of chart updates or shipped.  I didn't notice Seece had changed the title and thought slimebeast was referring to another post.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

German software looks way too high. It's not a giant market as it would seem if you look at VGchartz. We only have Console & Handheld software sales of about 30 million per year. ACB for example is just over 100k (as of Feb 2011) on the 360, so a first week for ACR at 56k just seems unrealistic.

It's probably just very frontloaded in Germany. It already dropped to 17k in its second week. And we are in the holidays when software sales are majorly up over normal weeks.



I think that's a shame to start with Germany before France as France is the second market in Europe after UK, still anti-French minds in the US ? Or new territories are added randomly ?

I think most of the people working on the site are from the UK actually. I'm sure it has nothing to do with hate
