December Hardware Sales


chart2.png

Three points on the data:

– The MediaCreate numbers include four weeks from 12/03 to 12/31.
– The NPD numbers include USA only and do not include Canada.
– I was unable to get reliable Europe numbers.

I suspect once Europe data is included, PS3 would have actually outsold the 360, which is great news! (Hardware only, software is a whole other story)

    Regardless of what it may have outsold, these are really impressive numbers for the PS3. It’s good to finally seeing it get the attention it deserves. In some ways I believe the PS3 should be the highest selling console, it functions so well as a blu-ray and media center device that you’d think the combination of it all would give it the extra sales it needs. Hopefully the recent news with Warner Bros. will help convince some folks it’s time to jump into the Blu-Ray pool and that might help. Now we just needs some nice Japanese titles to boost those numbers in Japan.

    PS3 has outsold the 360 “world wide” 6 weeks consecutively now.

    ehandlr, yes, I saw that link you posted earlier. Very cool. We should clean that up into a nicer chart and do a full post on that.

    As far as Media Market/Saturn (same group) in Belgium is concerned, the PS3 outsold the XBOX 360(°C and then show you the red ring), got that from an inside source.

    Yup Blu Ray coming on strong is a defo bonus. If Sony can convince those XBOX potential buyers that it has a good online strategy too then the battle will be won, QUICK Sony bring on HOME

    Sorry to hear that Sl33py. Call Sony support. Get a replacement system. Not much else you can do. I believe that there is only a 1-year warranty, so hurry.
