I'm confused, which console ended up last in sales? X360 or PS3?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

What's the official final word here. I mean, according to GS SW?

#2 Posted by GamerwillzPS (8530 posts) -

The 360 is in last place now.

#3 Posted by lundy86_4 (43891 posts) -

It's a draw.

#4 Posted by OneLazyAsian (1668 posts) -

Offically a draw unless MS or Sony throws us another bone and releases a surprise sales report before WiiU launch. Probably now going to happen but would be hilarious if they did.

Considering there are three threads with cows "claiming ownage" and lems "damage controlling", I would think quite a few care. :P

ps3 won, but some lems will make you think its a tie. even if this was the case, the tiebreaker would go to the season series winner where the PS2 destroyed the xbox, therefore by default!!

How, exactly, did the PS3 win?

#9 Posted by khoofia_pika (13517 posts) -
The 360 crossed 70 million a month before the PS3 did, so while the gap is practically negligible, the PS3 is still behind the 360.

1 year head-start to fail against a $600 console that came a year late... These will be the lemmings when the PS4 comes out next year before the Xbox:

X720 is doomed to fail.

PS3 is always been in last place and still is. When the year is over and it will be proven. It's not a draw, as XBox 360 sales between October 1st and Sony's announcement haven't been included. There's no way it could be a tie. PS3 is still in last place.
#13 Posted by Joedgabe (5131 posts) -

Well... they didn't win because The Wii won. Unfortunately Nintendo customers didn't get anything for it besides a disappointing Gen on their home console.

#14 Posted by dercoo (12555 posts) -

The gap has gotten to the point of a tie, likely slightly leaning in 360 favor after holidays, but ps3 will surpass it next Spring & Summer.

In the long run I see the ps3 getting the 2nd place title as Sony good at supporting their older products compared to Microsoft, and the fact that Bluray become a standard in many house holds.

Wii still won by a long shot though.

In the areas that matter, outside Japan, 360 is like 20 million systems ahead of PS3

That is all you need to know (unless you live in Japan i guess)

#18 Posted by CanYouDiglt (7583 posts) -
They ended up close but the PS3 is last. This is the perfect scenario since all systems did well and the PS3 fanboys end up heartbroken.

It's more amusing watching them flounder, yet attempt to prove they're right. Lovely.

I understand the Wii U is launching, but this generation is not over yet. If anything, you will simply have two generations overlapping each other until the PS4 and Xbox 720 arrive. During the mid 90's the fourth generation did not suddenly end because of the Saturn and Playstation 1. Nintendo and Sega still fought over market share for the 16-bit market, and both systems remained strong sellers until late 1996/early 1997. But during that time, yo had two generations overlapping. The Fourth Generation that had systems like the SNES and Genesis and the Fifth Generation that has the PS1 and Saturn. The Fifth Generation did not really take off until a few years after those systems debuted.

And the Wii U is not even the first eighth generation system. That honor belongs to the 3DS and Vita.

It's not over between the Xbox 360 and PS3 until both systems finally leave the market. Even after the PS4 and Xbox 720, if those two systems are still fighting it out, then the seventh generation is not over.

They didn't sound like they were damage controlling anything. In fact, if I remember right, they sounded kinda happy? Some of the notable lems, on the other hands, sounded pretty annoyed over two numbers.

70 milj in 6 years is better than 70 milj in 7 years

So xbox360 came in last

Sorry doesn't work that way. 70 mil is 70 mil, whether it took you 6 or 7 years to make it is irrelevant.

If that's the case, then it's logical the PS3 ended up last.

Why then so many threads claiming X360 ended up last?

Well maybe because the initial numbers included the PS2 sales as well. lol!! I think Sheep and Lems are happy knowing they took a significant part of the market share from Sony. The Playstation didn't dominate anything this generation. It got destroyed in software sales as well.

Well if they were happy, we would have three 500+ posts threads about PS3 sales. Some lems definitely got their panties in a bunch.

But MS is giving them away in the hopes of improving the numbers.

Officially, based on the most recent sales data released by MS and Sony neither (or both). They're tied.

Realistically and logically speaking, the PS3, since the PS3's numbers tied data Microsoft released a month and a half ago. Unless you make the moronic assumption that the 360 suddenly stopped selling in that time period, especially in the run up to Halo 4 and Black Ops II, there's no other logical conclusion.

:lol: you wanna use month and half ago headstart on numbers argument, but you dont wanna use year head start on the same argument. your argument, is sad. but lets do it. a month of RROD, and a half for E74. count the free 360s? No. how bout this tho, my rate of sales flow, still mathematically outdoes your month and half sales bro.
#42 Posted by themyth01 (13924 posts) -

GamerwillzPS
Is it that new logic that since MS hasn't reported their latest quarter reports it must mean the 360 has sold 0 units from their last quarterly report... lol that's some twisted logic there.
#43 Posted by todd2r_Partdeux (780 posts) -

This^. If Sony really did overtake the 360, don't people think we would have heard about it from Sony? Not in some stupid, "hey we shipped 70 million ps3s", but in a "hey look, we just beat the 360! We are the number one HD console on the market today!", kind of way. For one, that's great for the company, and two, its great to steal a little thunder from the WiiU launch. On the other hand, if it is true, obviously Microsoft don't give a fuk If they did, they would be releasing numbers or dropping the price of the 360 immediately to capture back the lead. Therefore, no one in the industry gives a fuk

The_Game21x

That certainly is correct. But, you also have to consider that the PS3 has been selling at a faster rate and closing the gap. I remember posting (just this summer...or maybe that was last month) about that after seeing the spring and summer sales numbers and how the PS3 may catch up or even pass the 360 before the year is over. Of course, I didn't realize the WiiU is just around the corner. If it's still current-gen after the WiiU release, the PS3 has a good chance of surging to 2nd. If not, then the 360 retains 2nd. But, prolonging this gen would be more advantageous to the PS3. That's my take on it.

flow-chart* srry bro, if you were to mathematically graphically represent it to yourself, you would see the difference between the lines show you that even a year of extra 360 sales, still couldnt beat the ps3, let alone a month and a half..........oh wait, we already got the year included too.

yea they are both tied. im pretty sure it isn't but the numbers are negligent unless anyone releases data with more exact figures by tuesday.....im pretty sure ms would

edit: as far as im concerned this is for 2nd or last place so its just a mini victory for sony, and a mini failure for lemmings. in the end, neither one of them grabbed the top spot

Xbox 360 hits it's 70 million mark on 30th of Sep 2012. There's about 42 to 49 days difference with Sony's numbers.
