Re: Console sales


Console sales is very divided these days. Vita, PSP and 3DS sell more in Japan than rest of world combined. The same goes for X360, Wii and DS in North America.
Only PS3 and WiiU are evenly spread.

Re: Console sales


Interesting milestone: in UK Xbox360 has now sold more than Wii. While rest of Europe prefers PS3, Microsoft has taken UK during this generation.
It's also possible, or even likely, that Xbox eventually outsells Wii in US.

Re: Console sales


With only months to next generation, PS3 has finally caught up X360. Both are estimated total sales of 77.3 millions.

Re: Console sales


]Xbox One $$$

$499 for an Xbox One. I hate all these 99's I know its supposed to be some subconcious oooh it's under X amount of dollars, but come on. $500 dollars for a gaming system!

Prices sure are going up on these things. If I had $500 to blow on gaming, I'd buy an Atari 5200 with numerous controllers, plus every game ever made for it and call it a day.

Re: Console sales


That price is a pretty bad hit after the PR disaster X1 has been.

Btw about "X1", which it will likely be called around net. While Xbox has never done well in Japan, that name certainly won't help there. X1 means there "strike 1", more generally "fail" and specifically a person with one divorce.

One more reason why Xbox One is the worst name since... Wii U.


Edit: and PS4 is $400

Re: Console sales


After recently reaching hundred million sold units, age of Wii is coming to end. Nintendo has officially made their last Wii.

X360 and PS3 are both at 80 million, which raises question if they might even catch Wii yet. Unlikely, except... Sony has said they are starting making PS3 in Brazil.
Brazil is a funny console market. Because of taxes they cost very much - PS4 will launch at about $1850! - unless you make them in the country. Sega knew this and locally made versions of its consoles lived in Brazil years after rest of world moved on.

Re: Console sales


Xbox One is finally coming to Finland.

You think $500 is bad? Try €650 (includes FIFA 14 download).


Not that I'm buying any consoles soon.

Re: Console sales


...and PS4 is 430€ (without game)

If we consider the two consoles equal, that makes 220€ for FIFA download and Kinect. No thanks.


I don't really know how X360 and PS3 did here, but with these numbers I can tell how this gen will be.

Re: Console sales


PS4 and Xbox One have been out for over half year, but it's still anybody's guess who "wins" this generation.
Even Wii U - while clearly Nintendo's worst disaster since GameCube - isn't totally out of game. Mario Kart revived sales for a moment and next Zelda/Mario/Metroid/Donkey Kong will keep it alive for years, but remains to be seen if anything appears that would allow Nintendo to seriously challenge Sony and MS.

Re: Console sales


The generation has officially changed.

I follow console sales at Video Game Charts - that being the reason this topic exists - and now in the latest charts (week before last) first time ever all "current" consoles - PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS and Vita - have sold more than any of their predecessors.

PS3 is still dragging PS4 - selling even more in Japan - but that's hardly a problem for Sony, beating competition in both old and new categories.
Handhelds are another story...
