Xbox 360 overtakes Wii in September console sales

Posted in Games,Halo,Microsoft,News,Xbox 360 by Darrin Olson on October 20th, 2007

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 beats the Nintendo Wii in console sales for SeptemberAfter almost a year of trailing in console sales, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 has finally pulled ahead of the widely popular Nintendo Wii marking the first time since the Wii’s launch last November that it hasn’t been number one. As anticipated by many, Microsoft pulled this off with a little help from the launch of Halo 3 which earned $170 million on its first day and $300 million its first week and ended up spurring a number of Xbox 360 sales along with it.

Those sales totaled 527,000 units of the console in the month of September which was a significant jump from the 276,700 sold the previous month. Nintendo was no slump for September either marking 501,000 Wii units and 495,800 handheld DS consoles. Both figures were also significantly more than in August.

Wii Leading Japan Console Sales, but PS3 is Gaining

Posted in News,PS3,Wii,Xbox 360 by Chris Weber on September 3rd, 2007

Nintendo Wii leads game console sales for August but the Sony PS3 is closing the marginThe Nintendo Wii again has lead the game console sales in Japan selling 245,653 units in the first four weeks with the Sony PS3 trailing at 81,541 units. That’s about a 3 to 1 lead that Nintendo has over Sony’s console sales which is actually good news for Sony as that ratio has been shrinking the past couple months.

In June Nintendo sold around 6 times as many Wii’s compared to the Playstation 3 in the Japanese market, and in July that ratio dropped to about 4 to 1. The PS3 with its Blu-ray player has been behind Nintendo in console sales since they were introduced last year, likely due the PS3′s higher price and lack of popular game titles, but Sony’s plans for the coming months may help keep this trend going. The company is planning to add a number of games towards this holiday shopping season to hopefully entice more PS3 sales, including the very popular Gran Turismo 5 which will go on sale in October.

PS3 sales up despite PSN downtime

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2011

Despite the recent downtime due to hacks, Sony has reported that PS3 sales actually rose during the PlayStation Network downtime, promising that its system is “stronger than ever” at retail. Sales of the PS3 are up 14% year-over-year.

That’s pretty amazing considering that Sony was suffering one of it’s biggest disasters ever, both in terms of security and PR. Proof that you can’t keep a good console down.

PS3 overtakes Xbox 360 sales worldwide

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2011

While the Xbox 360 is still outselling the PS3 in the US, new data from Strategy Analytics shows that globally, Sony’s console reached 43.4 million at the end of 2010, compared to 42.9 million for Microsoft’s system. Take that Xbox.

In comparison, the Wii’s worldwide installed base was 75.5 million at the end of last year. If you have been paying attention, global demand for Sony’s PS3 has exceeded that of the Xbox 360 for the past two years, and there’s no reason to think it will stop this year. Microsoft needs to keep innovating and build on the success of the Kinect to compete.

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2011

After selling 500,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS handheld on day 1 in Japan, Nintendo has hit another milestone. Amazon UK has announced that they have received more pre-orders for the 3DS than any other gaming console they’ve previously sold.

The Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii all come in second to Nintendo’s portable glasses-free 3D gaming sensation. They didn’t reveal the exact numbers, but 3DS pre-orders were 20% higher than the PS3, 56% higher than the Wii and 255% higher than the DSi. Looks like the big N has a huge hit on it’s hands.

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2011

Nintendo has some high hopes for their 3DS. And well they should since they had impressive sales last year. Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata has laid down some ambitious goals for the company’s latest portable. He expects the 3DS to sell 4 million units by the end of March.

That would mean about 1.5 million units in Japan and another 2.5 million units everywhere else. The 3DS should be available in Japan on February 26th, with the US and European markets following in March. We are gonna go out on a limb and say they meet their goal and have an earlier US release.

Move sales around 1.5 million in Europe, 300K estimated for US

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 17th, 2010

Sony’s PlayStation Move motion controller is definitely moving across Europe. Sony Europe’s Andrew House noted “very significant sales” for the Move, saying that it has sold “somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe.” Sales have exceeded Sony’s original hopes, so it looks like the company will likely increase production of the peripheral.

Sales may not be as great in America, however. In a report released to the media, Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter estimated that the motion controller sold roughly 300,000 units in its US debut. That includes Move console bundles; though SCEA has not released official sales figures yet.

Nintendo Wii hits 30M sales milestone

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2010

Nintendo must be pretty happy with the news that the Wii video game console has now sold 30 million units in the US alone. That figure was achieved in just 45 months, making it the fastest-selling console in the history of the industry. Wow.

It also hit the milestone 15 months faster than the next best-selling console. Obviously this is due to the Wii’s innovative gaming experience, even if some consoles do end up collecting dust after a few months when the novelty wears off.

Xbox 360 sales surge in Japan after slim launch

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2010

People like their consoles like they like their supermodels, thin and puking. Well, thin anyway. With two nice round buttons in front. But nevermind that. The newly launched Xbox 360 has sold 15,000 units in Japan in the first four days. The strong sales were in addition to 2,370 of the previous generation version of the games console. The week before the release saw only 2,060 Xbox units of any kind moved.

Sales were helped by the launch of Capcom’s top-selling game, Monster Hunter Frontier Online. In Japan the new slim console costs $339 while the previous Elite version dropped to $282.

Nintendo Wii sales down 21 percent in a single year

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2010

When the Nintendo Wii was released, people called it gimmicky with it’s motion controller, but in spite of that, the console has done really well. But the fact that it’s aging and doesn’t have many grown-up games may be shortening it’s life as a console.

According to Nintendo’s fiscal report, the company sold 20.53 million Wii consoles last year, which is a 21 percent drop from the 25.95 million from the previous year. However this is still Nintendo’s third-best year ever. Will sales of the Wii pick up? I’m not seeing it.
