360 sales going great still!! - Nov 30, 2007 09:02
" UPDATE: More than 310,000 Xbox 360 consoles sold in the U.S. for the week of Nov. 18, including Black Friday, rounding out its third holiday season on the market"

O_o V what made it sell? Mass effect or CoD4? or perhaps both mixed with halo3.

Even if you break 2 legs from a crab it still runs!
What you gotta do is find its weak spot and do massive damage at it.

Thanksgiving, Quez.

Wii also sold very well, 350.000 or so units sold in that week. Couldn' t find any PS3 sales numbers, though.

" Sales of the PlayStation 3 in North America were given a shot in the arm last week by the price cut, and more than tripled during the Thanksgiving holiday week. Sony has informed GameSpot that its newly discounted console saw a 245 percent increase in units sold in the week of November 18-24 compared to the previous week.

Sony asserts that the surge in sales is largely due to the price cut, which was introduced in the US on October 18 for the 60GB model, and the new 40GB model, which was released on November 2. The new prices put the console more in line with the Wii and Xbox 360. The 80GB PS3 costs $499 and the 40GB PS3 $399, compared to $249 for a Wii, and $279 for the Xbox 360 Arcade.

[UPDATE] From the introduction of the 40GB model on November 2nd to November 24, Sony says PS3 hardware sales have increased by a massive 298 percent. Though Sony did not provide is actual sales figures, one can extrapolate an estimate from the three-week period from the October NPD reports, which said 143,000 PS3s were sold in the US (121,000) and Canada (22,000) during the month. That means roughly 107,250 were sold in North America in three weeks last month.

According to Sony, that rate of sale has roughly tripled, so it' s likely around 321,750 PS3s were sold in November through Black Friday in North America. If those sales stay constant through the end of the month, then roughly 429,000 PS3s were sold in the US and Canada during the month. That' s a marked improvement for the console, which has not sold more than 200,000 units in a single month this year."

So PS3 sold 430k units in one month while 360 and Wii both sold over 300k in one week?

Look at how many units Sony' s pushed thus far compared to Nintendo & Microsoft.

That' s quite an achievement.

Meanwhile according to CNBC the 360 outsold the PS3 2 to 1 last week and 360 software outsold Wii and PS3 software combined.

However CNBC is basically owned by MS,however sony saying that and that in % means nothing,when the console sales has fallen down to 100k you dont know what the next month sales was,sony use % but no figures,very weird.

I think that 360 had a lot of blockbusters and with the crazy holiday shoppers it is really no surprise. Then again all the consoles will have increased sales for the next month atleast. One of my teachers was telling me her husband went out on Black Friday and waited for 5 hours just to get a Wii. It is amazing how fast they go in every store around here. It had started to die down and there were some in stock here and there, but now that the holiday season is upon us they are all gone.

Unofficial Sony numbers are unofficial. Wait for NPD numbers, not some estimate someone pulled out of their ass.
I dont want to celebrate, I want to sell you hate.

I don' t believe a word of any of these company' s PR estimates. I am really interested in seeing the NPD figures but they' ll be a couple of weeks off yet.
