So People brought more Xbox one games then others, and People Brought more Xbox 360 games than others, and combined they sold what the PS4 and wii u sold together.

So people brought almost double the PS4's than Xbox ones. Which actually did not make the gap much bigger so march is still open. Maybe a price drop. The parts they used for the X1 dropped in price last month.

So Wii U has no numbers to show. Sony has no even hinted implications of a PSvita number.

Nintendo in general, has not put out any numbers. Interesting.

Wrong Playstation 4 had more games sold than the Xbox One.

So the PS4 has better hardware, more EXCLUSIVES lined up AGAIN ( Just like ps3!) , is a 100 dollars cheaper, multiplats running better on PS4. PS plus is awesome. But no the one isnt in trouble at all. Im sure Titan fall will save it. Some of you people are complete idiots

Man some of y'all need to relax, it's January, you know the month after Xmas! Obviously not too many people have upwards of $500 and more to spend on a luxury item. Botha systems sales went way down between December and January. Tax season is coming, more games are coming, and MS is sitting in a good spot cause more X1's you got in store the easier it is for someone to go out and get one when they see something they wanna play. It will be well into the summer by the time I make the jump to next gen. Just don't have the urge to make that leap yet.

Might wanna look at this...

@Dire_Weasel said:

Just to put the "First January" sales in perspective:

  • 1st January PS4 - 271K
  • 1st January PS3 - 244K
  • 1st January PS2 - 248K
  • 1st January Xbox One - 143K
  • 1st January 360 - 249K
  • 1st January OG Xbox - 127K
  • 1st January Wii U - 57K
  • 1st January Wii - 436K
  • 1st January GameCube - 62K

So, the Xbox One is selling about the same as the OG Xbox, but about half as much as the 360 was. It might not be "doomed", but "Redmond, we have a problem."

Also ... the original Wii was a phenomenon, wasn't it?

Let's just take it easy on the poor fella, he probably forgot to have his alphabet lettered cereal for breakfast :/

I'll humor you:

January was a miserable sales month, all around. For Sony to move a grand total of ~336k video game players, for Microsoft to move a grand total of ~191k video game players, for Nintendo to move a grand total of ~139k video game players is pretty goddamned terrible. (All three companies together, with eight total systems, barely sold more than what the Xbox 360 sold in December 2013)
The extent of this month comes down to (if you receive personal gratification from a multinational cooperation's success) my video game console of choice didn't do as badly as your video game console of choice.

In regards to a lack of demand vs. a lack of availability and whether it is a fundamental difference or merely a semantic difference -- I hold fast in that the only difference is duration. Is there a fundamental difference between you wanting to buy something but being unable to do so and you not wanting to buy something?

lol cows. wow. Go play your games lol.

March-May will be a better judge of how sales will go.

IF MS cant even get within arms reach by Holiday 2014, it may be a very bad sign

Bump months don't really necessitate the collection of evidence on a trend. Off months like January and February are much better judges of intrinsic demand for a product. That is why this January's NPD result is such a radical departure from Decembers, for instance.

Did you see my "First January" summary? The Playstation 4 has had the second-best first January, right under the Wii.

It was also supply constrained. Had Sony shipped more units to North America, they would have sold more. You can expect February to look very similar to January with regards to Playstation 4 sales because very little has changed; Sony is selling everything it ships.

this board is devoid of logic

Xbox 360 outsells Ps3 consistently by 2-1 month after month, year after year=Ps3 is gonna be okay

Ps4 outsells Xbone 2-1 ONCE= Xbone is doomed

As i said before, the PS3 had rubbish sales to begin with, NO AAAE title in it's first year was more expensive than the 360 but it still ended up catching up to the 360 and being a successful console.

Here are the difference. 360 Outsell PS3 in US and UK, but PS3 Outsell 360 worldwide combine so that is why PS3 was able to close the gap, but Xb1 now is getting outsell not only around the world but also 2:1 in US and UK (not sure the UK numbers yet) That is why some people claim that they are in trouble!

Almost 3:1 in the UK, presently.

The xbox 360 didn't outsold the PS3 by double numbers all month alto it outsold it in US and UK,every where else the PS3 dominated the xbox 360 even with a much higher price tag that was as big as $300 difference.

The PS3 outsold the xbox 360 since day 1 on mainland EU it started outselling since it arrive MS keep UK and US and Japan wasn't even close.

But i do see your logic,also is not the same we are talking here about the PS4 outselling the xbox one world wide every where,that gap grows by each day,it was 1.2 million by the 28 of December it should be closer to 2 million now,considering the xbox one is been heavily outsold world wide,even more in EU than on US.

No.. not really. ---> http://www.gamespot.com/forums/system-wars-314159282/ps4-available-at-amazon-gamestop-31082843/#23

Yeah that proves the PS4 isn't sold out,how the hell you think Sony sold almost double of what the xbox one did.? By having nothing to sell at all month.? It is obvious that new shipments keep coming in,else they would not sell any unit at all,the question how much will those units last.

http://www.nowinstock.net/videogaming/consoles/ps4/

Still sold out in most stores.

No MS joined games from the xbox 360 to make seen like the xbox one sold more games,in fact the only 2 games that sold better on xbox one were Ghost and Lego,the rest of the games sold better on PS4 and tomb raider actually sold double on PS4 compare to the xbox one.

The gap was 1.2 million add 140K more and the gap is 1,340,000 problem is that doesn't include sales from EU and the rest of the world where the PS4 is been sold,so it could be more than 1.6 million by now.

And japan hit in 1 week basically so depending on what they have for launch the gap could be bigger than 2 millions,in just 3 and a half months.

no one is buying it, maybe you should stop repeating it, we know you are one of the most delusional lems around, the "i have multiple systems" excuse from lems is getting old by now. Maybe you do have them, maybe you don't, you are still a delusional lem.

I remember when the 360 came out I was waiting for a PS3, saw the commercial for Dead Rising said to myself I want that and went after work to by the 360 an extra controller and Dead Rising. I was 24 yrs old, no kids, renting a cheap ass place working all the time, and hanging out with friends. I had disposable cash on hand, not a problem. Fast forward to now, I'm 32 I have 2 kids, house, more bills, less disposable cash. Times change economies change it's not like it was.

As a true gamer, how was the NGage and the Ouya? I'd love to hear your impressions of OnLive, too. Grace us with your true gamerness.

Frankly, I don't think you get to claim that title for spending $500 on a TV remote. WiiU has more good games than XBone right now, but you don't mention it. Blow it out your ass. No mention of PC gaming automatically makes you the idiot of the "true gamer" village homie.

No, that's not a "true gamer". That's the mark of someone whose only hobby is gaming. If being a "true gamer" comes at the price of being a well-rounded individual, then I guess I'll never be a "true gamer".

That's my take. I love video games, but there's a lot of other stuff I also love to do. One console (and some PC) a generation is all the time I'm willing to invest in gaming. Life is too short to only spend it in front of a monitor.

Wrong again, according to the last official statements from both MS and SONY the 360 hit 80 million units 3 weeks before the Ps3.

Also, since when did making Profit = dying?

and the Original xbox outsold the dreamcast and the gamecube dude in the 6th generation (we are currently IN the 8th generation)

You don't even know which gen we are in lol

Talking about last month, dingus.

what about last month? you claimed that xbox consoles had been outsold every generation by every other console, you where wrong and you didn't even know which generation we are in,lol

Yeah ok, i get what you where TRYING to say, use better english, what you should have said is 'last MONTH the 360 was outsold by every other 7th and 8th gen console'

Glad we are on the same page what games are you playing on your Nexus 7.

Burn zombie burn,ravensword, shadowgun, dead trigger, minigore 2, riddick, Shadowrun returns and quite a few others, Mainly THD games cause my nexus has a Tegra 3 chipset.

It's no surprise that hardware sales drop off like a rock at the start of the year. PS3 and Xbox 360 sales are pretty dismal last month so perhaps Microsoft should consider dropping the price for the 360 for first time in years; $99 4GB and $199 250GB. PS3 S perhaps should go to $149.

I expected stronger Xbox One sales, especially with the amount that should have been on shelves. Microsoft should be following this situation closely with a keen eye. It's a pity that we rarely get all NPD numbers anymore.

Amazon ps4 already sold out.

Man, PS4 is just dominating. It's still sold out everywhere just showing that Sony is basically selling as many as they make and PS4 launches in Japan in a few days. The lead is probably at 2 million or more right now without Japan. Look at the US PS4 stock situation and compare to the Xbone just for today (keep in mind Amazon got some PS4s yesterday and they completely sold out in hours)....

This is just total destruction. February might be even worse than January for Xbone lol.

The obsession with sales reminds me of Wii fans back in the day, but you have to go for something when the library is way under par. I for one play games, not sales.

@Stevo_the_gamer: Thing is Sony will deliver with the games though, they always have. Unlike the Wii that was known for long droughts Sony arguably had the best games last gen. PS4 isn't even 3 months old yet, the games will definitely come and until they do I'll post epic sales to piss off the lems and sheep.

All companies have had droughts. Nevertheless, only thing you're accomplishing is making yourself look like a tool.

Funny how you make an excuse for the time, yet pound on the Xbox One's sales yet time is irrelevant. Remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint. Were the PS3 and Xbox 360 failures compared to the Wii? It's time to grow up, laddy.

You're really trying hard to compare Wii to the PS4? You should be ashamed of yourself for bringing comparisons to the two, I can't believe you're a mod. Did the Wii actually have 3rd party support like the PS4 does? Compare the Wii's lifetime to the latter end of PS2's lifetime. Did the PS2 suffer droughts like the Wii? Seriously man, I know you're a mod and all and that comes with an air of arrogance and whatnot but the PS4 situation isn't even remotely close to the Wii's situation and Sony is not Nintendo, they always deliver in 1st party and 3rd party support.

They have been know to support their consoles longer than anybody since they started with the PS1. Heck PS3 still has major 1st party support compared to the dead 360 and wii and it wasn't the most successful in sales last gen. I find it hilarious and ironic you're calling me a tool for pointing out the PS4 is selling great in an NPD thread of all places. Where else should I talk about sales?

I'm not sure where you're getting the "trying hard" from -- I merely gave mention to the mantra that sheep had back in the day to the bovine today with sales and sales threads. It's very similar in regards to the obsession. The second comparison was simply just because one platform is selling very well does not dictate the other platforms are "failures." Each market brings about different circumstances, yes, but to pander to fanboy mantra (act like a tool) when it's clearly a marathon (not a sprint) is just silly. The PS2 was a different platform all in its entirety, and to compare that market to today's market is unwise and illogical. Different time period, different competition, and different mindsets.

I don't mind one applausing or critiquing sales, but the "in your face" mantra that we see from fanboys (you) is where you make yourself look like a tool. It's an inanimate object, there's no need to have an obsessive loyalty to a piece of plastic. Enjoy playing the sales card, I'll be playing games.
