US Xbox 360 sales top PS3, Wii for 21st straight month

Postby a_adji » 12 Oct 2012, 11:03

such things should not be reported.

The Wii sat on top for 3-4 years and no one barked it's still teh best selling system this gen.

Sony has a great system but just lost the plot which has messed them up.

360 I will always love but lets stop the proper gander.

I had a proper gander this morning.

The mardy cow closed her blinds when she caught me though.

Brilliant! A proper gander! Im stealing that!

OT, CVG have always reported US sales as they are trackable, unlike the EU.

Headline should read -CVG again reports US Xbox 360 sales topping PS3, Wii for 21st straight month while ignoring more significant global sales of PS3 that has predominatly beaton it every month but CVG are definitly not biased towards MIcrosoft and awards itself 8 out of ten for unbiased journalism, when it should really score a 6!
Hey its Martin A , not Martina by the way, cheers

Can you post links that confirm this Martin (even though your probably right), and when I say links, I don't mean VG Chatrz I mean real affiliated bodies.

You know how we get Japanese and US numbers? That's cause we have governing bodies who track the numbers. We don't have them for EU or the World though so thats why CVG cant report on these territories. Still that doesn't fuel the paranoia like unsubstantiated rumour's or conjecture, so carry on.

I'm still waiting for the "Year of the PS3". Anyone remember that one? Every year, next year PS3 was going to wipe the floor with both the Wii, and Xbox 360. Stupid fanboys. Sales now are almost irrelevant, all consoles have succeeded.

Do we have to have the same story and the same comments of 'yeah but ps3 is selling better' every month? Sales for all machines should generally be declining, does it really matter now?

I accidentally left my phone on the side during a....visit....last week. I had to get out quick after hearing somebody coming!

Looking back it was definitely a mistake to leave it on auto upload.

Article is pointless as although 360 is best seller in US/UK eveywhere else ps3 is top seller.
