Alright... with the rules revision, comes the return of sales threads to the 360 section of the forum.
In the past, this section was banned from having sales threads because of massive flaming from members both pro and anti-360. This will NOT be tolerated again.
In order to keep the thread open, and healthy, there will be some guidelines that will be heavily moderated:
Let's try to keep it civil, and on topic.
- Absolutely NO mention of PS3, Wii, DS, PSP, etc... in the thread. The discussion will revolve around the numbers posted for the 360 and what it means. In the past, the threads turned into instant comparison threads, got derailed, then closed. No one wants that. So to avoid it, no one is allowed to post things like "well the PS3 sold ### two weeks earlier than 360 did at the same point in its life"... not only is the number meaningless, it brings the PS3 into a discussion that it does not belong to.
- Derailing, insults, harassment, etc.. also NOT tolerated. Users will enjoy a bypass of the warning feature on the infraction board. Repeat offenders will be banned from posting in the entire 360 subforum, not just the numbers thread.
- VGChartz is not a reliable source for numbers, as they are not an official reporting agency. They can be discussed, but to quote them as a source of verifiable information should be avoided.
- Anyone bringing a sold to consumer vs. sold to retail argument into the thread will have their posts deleted.

How many consoles have MS sold to date anyway? My estimate have them close to about 43 mil at this point.

What I'm basically saying is, this thread doesn't seem needed. It's not hard to sort out the trolls in the sales threads as of late.

They are well ahead of 2008 sales during the same months. They were ahead of 2008 sales in 2009 also(not by a million like in 2010) but sold a million less for the FY. It's a bit tricky to predict. I would say they'll hit around 12m for the FY.

Sounds good to me. People don't have to bring the PS3 into this at all. Most people know what Sony reports, so that's fine. Create a blog post comparing the two then if you want to compare and link to it in your sig. It's always interesting for me to compare, but I know how it goes on the forums side of things. One side gets upset, and the other pushes it in their face more and more.
Oh, and I predict 10.5 to 11M this year. I think they dropped in Japan, and I don't think they cleaned up in Europe like they were hoping.

You think this is an example of the consistency members asked for??...allowing the status quo sales threads in the ps3 section while protecting the 360 sections threads??....Nah...id rather see no sales threads altogether...
They bring nothing but bickering to the forums n matter how hard people try to keep ir clean...
This thread is just not the answer...they should have their own section where sales are talked about in general and can be monitored with a zero tolorance policy...
The staff can ban members from particular sections...if you troll th sales section....you're gone...either side of the asile...
Really id love to hear reasoning on how this particular thread benefits the forum as a whole more than a sales subsection...
A sub section removes all sales threads from both the ps3 and 360 sections of the forum...you don't get the rampant trolling over sals clogging up either forum....moderators now exactly where to look to find it as well...making it easier for all sides...both staff and members....
And again...implement a zero tolerance policy in the section...if you are deemed to be trolling the sales section you can't post there for a month or something...maybe longer...idk however longbthe staff sees fit...
I rarely even post in sales threads because I just don't find them productive at all...but im really struggling to see at all how this helps the problem...or how giving sales its own section could not be better than the current situation...

MS made 382 million in Q1, Shipped 2.8 million 360s and has sold a total of 44.5 million systems to date. Looks like they will hit 50 million by the end of the year.
I thought it was 2.9 million units?
Anyway, I think this brings them up to 1.5m+1.5m+2.9=5.9m for the year so far.
It's 2.8^ not 2.9.
edit:EDD revenue increased primarily reflecting higher Xbox 360 platform revenue. Xbox 360 platform revenue grew $409 million or 33%, primarily reflecting increased volumes of Xbox 360 consoles sold and higher Xbox 360 video game revenue led by Halo Reach. We shipped 2.8 million Xbox 360 consoles during the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, compared with 2.1 million Xbox 360 consoles during the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. Halo Reach launched in September 2010 generating approximately $350 million of revenue during the quarter.
I have no clue why the link is blocked out.

Hmm, good start, but who knows, up 38% form latsr year, if that continued across th enext 9 months they would hit above 14 million, but I really cant see that happening.
12 million is doable, very doable if they hit 6.5 for Xmas. I have no doubts this will be their best Xmas.
That would mean only 1.3 mill each 1/4 after.

Wow...it shouldn't be long before they hit 50 million.id say that that is pretty good considering what they sold last gen.
360 sales talk is unbanned? let see if people can keep it that way
But I guess it'll be banned again if sales decline again... Bad news is forbidden!

Yeah, I mean a good holiday would bring them somehwere 5.5 to 6 million, Kinnect might push them past that.

what do you seen in terms of sales next year for MS. I mean their are awsome games out right now and the sale prove they are great sellers. But next year when all the dust settles from this year. How will MS make the second year greaterPlato and Aristotle, a detail of The School of Athens, a fresco by Raphael. Aristotle gestures to the earth, representing his belief in knowledge

Yes releasing games will keep the sales up. But what games will do thatPlato and Aristotle, a detail of The School of Athens, a fresco by Raphael.

Decent sales for the year so far.
Kinect is going to do gangbusters so the next announcement of quarterly earnings should be a good read.
