November Hardware Sales |


As a reminder:

NPD = Sales data for USA + Canada
Media Create = Sales data for Japan. I used the four weeks of data spanning 11/05/07 through 12/2/2007.
It’s harder to get a cleaner data set for Europe numbers, so those are currently omitted.

Overall, not bad. If I could get Europe sales data in there, that would probably look much better. What does everyone think?

BTW, check out the nice Google Chart API that I used to make this chart through a simple URL string:

  • Sureson

    I think it looks just perfect. Nintendo dominating both home console and handheld. MS and Sony fighting for scraps. I think it looks just Perfect.

  • Mike

    The japanese market is becoming pathetic for consoles. Even Wii is doing a mere fraction of what it’s selling in North America. Microsoft actually has themselves position pretty well considering all the third party sales will come from North American publishers on their platform. Too bad they had to flush a billion on faulty console repairs, but they can afford it.

  • francois

    Sony overall is doing well with their 3 platforms. In North America, the XBox 360 is gaining ground that will be hard to catchup for the PS3 because the cycle of more console sold = more games published, more games = more consoles sold is already in effect. The 2007 games most talked about are on the 360. So 2007 is the years of the 360 as opposed to the PS3. We had good games for ps3, but media don’t talk about it that much, too bad, all we had is bad press. Does American media has a bias for American products [Made in china]?

    As for wordwide battle between the 2, I think it will be fairly equals.

  • jwspiker

    USA playstation blog states that 1.5 million were sold worldwide.

  • ehandlr

    According to VGChartz (I know I know) the PS3 has outsold the 360 for the past 2 weeks in a row worldwide.

  • Darrin

    jwspiker, the Playstation blog said that 1.5 PlayStations were sold in North America according to NPD: that’s true, but they are adding PS2, PSP, PS3 numbers.

    ehandlr, I definitely believe that. PS3 comes close to 360 when you include both North America and Japan. If I could get Europe in there, I bet PS3 would exceed 360.

    Software is another story…

  • ehandlr

    We know Sony claimed 200k PS3’s sold each week for the past two weeks in Europe.

  • derrickgott007

    Darrin is correct….They stated only HALF A MILLION PS3’s were sold.

  • Rjcc

    I very much doubt the ps3 is outselling th 360 worldwide, or if it is, it’s very close. all you have to do is look at this chart, unfortunately I don’t know the number iput for the 30 and ps3 totals last month, but that looks like a gap of what, 150k~? sony said the ps3 is doing around 200k a week in europe. do you believe the 360 is selling less than 1/4th of that? I don’t.

  • Darrin

    rjcc, the 360 does have a ~150K lead over the PS3 according to NPD + MediaCreate figures for the *month* of November. Sony claims that the PS3 was doing 200K per *week* in all of Europe.

    200K per week for four weeks could easily close and pass a 150K lead in the US+Japan total.

  • Rjcc

    I disagree. I very much doubt the ps3 is outselling the 360 by 150k a month in europe, and ps3 sales have fallen back greatly in japan in the last two weeks.

  • Sporty

    Greatly in the last two weeks… As in 38,123 last week, and 37,092 the week before. An actual increase of over a thousand. I guess your comparing that to bump of the price drop.

    None-MS spinning would call that holding steady.

    It’s actually now too hard to believe PS3 is outselling 360 by at least 150k in Europe on a monthly basis if you know basic math.

    Last weeks Europe sales put PS3 at 220,621, and 360 at 149,016. Week ending 12/3 was PS3 at 173,140, and 360 at 108,524.

    So in two weeks PS3 outsold 360 by 136221 units. It’s not too hard to think in twice the time it can sell an additional 13k.
