well at least we got the official number from lemmings camp. if sony releases the number...im pretty sure its not the end all argument. lemmings will find something like they did when sony announced its numbers. ps2 is part of the data, ms numbers came out a month before, it probably sold 2mil etc..... there will never be an end to this until the ps4 new xbox comes out

jsmoke03
We got official numbers from nintendo that show for 2012, the PS3 only managed to sell 500k more than the 360. So how the hell did it catch up? :lol:

Not a projection. PS3 has shipped 77 million and shipped= Sold. MS has shipped 75.9 million. Face it, the PS3 caught the 360 worldwide and is passing it. 

Link.

The International Data Corporation this week published a study that states worldwide PS3 shipments (77 million) surpassed global Xbox 360 shipments (76 million)...

Xfans will still deny it. PS3 will have to show ahead on all sites before they believe it.

You said it shipped 77 million. That number is from a forecast.

It's alright if you were wrong ;)

It's called Sony shipped out a whole lot of PS3s to stores around the world that bought them from Sony and that's how it happened. I know it's hard to believe and accept, because America buys 360 more, but nowhere else do people buy 360 more.

from nintendo? really? lol....you got a link whatever, all im saying is whatever number/figure/link comes out, people will always have a counter argument on the validity of anything released. even if it was official numbers from sony, there will always be a debate...if it releases the numbers in feb 20....people are like well it was like 2 weeks....ms shouldve sold this. even numbers are being argued over because of rrod and ylod numbers. wii's numbers aren't being attacked because they surged past the 2 consoles within the first year that it doesn't matter now, but cows, lemmings, and hermits say it didn't win its generation....blah blah blah

#61 Posted by CanYouDiglt (7629 posts) -
The funny part is most people on here have no problem saying the PS3 outsold the 360 if that really did happen but there is no reason to say it till it happens. Cows are so desperate for their PS3 to pass the 360 all they need is some random company to say it to consider it a fact.
#62 Posted by Riki101 (2339 posts) -

some of you guys are a bunch of console scrubs, winning a console war is not about omg i sold more then you i win, its more about profit, even though companies are going to turn this around and say sony won because it sold more, in the end 360 is more profitable in hardware, in software, and in services such as xbox live, if i were a devision owner this gen, i would be more happy with 360 then with ps3's profits

Well it seems Sony is first loser in terms of the console race (second loser if you count PC).

Fanboys asides those are good numbers. IIRC the Xbox sold around 25M. So that is a good increase.

So true and funny but even worse the projected number did not even come from Sony. They just heard some random company say it and it was enough fact for them.

i haven't found any topic worthwhile to comment on for days, but this is too funny. isn't it disturbing how cows care so much about sales that they have to try to convince themselves of their own lies? and whenever someone tries to help them with their delusions the entire herd will claim butthurt and tears. :lol:

1)

Those aren't official numbers from Sony. 2) These are shipped numbers. Not sold to customer numbers. Eventually the PS3 will catch the XBox 360, but it's irrelevant. The Next-Generation has already started. The PS3 is no longer dominate is the largest region in the world. (USA).

With 360s early failure rates I have no doubt PS3 surpassed 360 users 2+ years ago.

For hardware sales, if its already happened or happens sometimes in the next couple years it makes no difference. The result despite inflated rebuy numbers and the full advertising power of MS is (or will be) still, for two generations in a row, last.

MS had the biggest advantage they will ever have with a year head start and Sonys self-imposed difficulties. If they couldnt do it with that, what chance do they really have with the upcoming iterations?

Oh and the guys saying PS3s sales are estimated or projections if you look at that report from MS and put your little curser over it what does it say?

Yup

This is funny how the cows always try to act like Sony is the only one that had any any difficulties in order to make it seem like Sony was the only one to have any hurdles to get over.  The fact is the hardware issue was bigger then the price tag of the PS3 so if Sony can not even pass the 360 with their hardware issues the PS4 has no chance at all if you want to play that game.

It is 2nd and 3rd place. The PC does not have a place since there is no way to count PCs sold for gaming reasons.

If you count all gaming devices like handholds, tablets and phones we can add a few more places but I'm fairly sure most people focus on the microcosm that is HD consoles.

But I'm guessing you knew that and just playing coy.

Really you think every single PC so in the world should be counted? Just NYC alone think how many businesses there are in all those skyscrapers which are a crap ton if you have never been there. Every desk in all those businesses will need a PC so you think they should all be counted for System Wars?

360 had a problem with bricking consoles... PS3 had a console with more to it like Blu-ray, card reader, BC, recharging controller, HDD and Wi-Fi witch understandably made it cost more. Hardly the same problem.

Remember, MS had a year with no HD Console competitor for consumers to run too, a year advantage to fix problems and solidify their position in the market. You can honestly tell me that if not for the year we would even be talking about this?

I would follow the customary SW animal name calling but it goes without saying here.

Based on what could be a FORCAST from a company calld IDC, IGN admitted that they didn't even know the source for the information and that it may in fact be a forcast and not official sales figures, wait until SONY release there numbers, which they won't because they combine Ps3 and Ps2 figures in with there sales data.

#96 Posted by mysticstryk (1709 posts) -

I know all the butthurt fanboys will cry, but the 360 is currently about 1.5 million units sold (to consumers) ahead of the ps3.  Don't worry cows, by the end of the year, Sony will be ahead by at least the same amount.

Like I asked before do you think 360 and the Wii did not have its fair share of problems or was it only the PS3? It is important because it is even more amazing if they both had problems and outsold the PS3 considering what the PS1 and 2 did.

Please, the PS3 was supposed to have passed the 360 within months of being released, not years. That first year the 360 not only had the RROD, but it was also competing against the fictional uberPS3 that was to blow everything else away and make the 360 look like "the xbox 1.5"...etc (ie sony's hype machine), which was also supposed to be coming "Spring 2006" Before this gen the PS3 was supposed to blow away a flawlessly launched 360. Now the PS3 arguably "catching" the 360 6 years down the road AFTER the RROD issues, all the while cutting price and bleeding money while NOT forcing MS to do the same and allowing them to rake in the dough is a success? I guess if you lower expectations far enough eventually you can claim some sort of victory.

It's also a fact that many people bought a PS3 just as a blu-ray player inflating its sales numbers. You were saying? Also the Wii came out last and ended up dominated both consoles. derp.
