    Looks Like The PS3 Has Finally Passed The 360 In Worldwide Sales Numbers.

    It surpassed the 360 in shipped units back in January, and now it seems that it has finally surpassed the 360 in sales.

    According to vgchartz at least.


    This really warms my heart, considering the start they had.

    It took a while but it finally happened! Congratulations Sony!

    With the PS4 and Xbox One launching around the same time, I'm excited to see who's going to win the next generation.

    VGChartz retro fit their data, they have been proven to be wrong so many times its not funny.
    Dont bother using them as a source, although it likely has happened, I wouldn't point to them as a source.

    That is why i mentioned the fact that they had shipped more units in January.

    I don't believe those numbers are much off.

    No, I think you are right, but we have no concrete proof because a certain company decided to hide their numbers.

    I think both might, MS has publicly stated they expect another 25 million units out of the 360.

    I'm with Mynd, i think in the end they will likely both wind up beating out the Wii. Interesting to see how long Sony and MS continue supporting them.

    Not for long I think. Let's say, if PS4 turns out to be around $400, I doubt people will still buy the PS3.

    I think PS3 will be supported longer than the 360. Sony always supports their consoles for a while after the successor takes its place.

    Well, since the PS4 isn't backward compatible, the PS3 will still keep strong sales in my opinion.

    And considering the big list of great games from this generation available on it (exclusive and multiplatform), its a great Entertainment system for anyone that doesn't need the newest exclusives, I'm quite sure we will see many multiplat games being released on both the PS4 and PS3 for a long time ahead.

    You know that kind of makes me think if they didn't include backwards compatibility for that reason. I know keeping the console cost down is an obvious factor. But it makes sense to do something like this as a business tactic.

    Honestly, I think it passed the 360 sometime last year. It doesn't matter though. I did not expect to see the market shift this much this generation. We went from a 70% by 15% by 15% market share ratio in favor of Sony in previous generation to about a 36% by 32% by 32% market share ratio in favor of Nintendo for this generation. I will never again underestimate the consumer's demand for cheaply made and marketed goods and services.

    Finally. I can sleep better now.

    Do you guys think that the Playstation 3 will reach 100 million lifetime sales? (With the PS4 coming out and all).

    About time! I mean I own both consoles but dang, PS3 has way better features than the Xbox! Free online gaming, a lot better graphics in some gaming genres, and the fact that the PS3 is just overall my favorite console!

    This was announced in the news a few weeks back IIRC? As far as current gen support, EA has com out and said that it will support current gen until 2017.

    PS3 will properly have longer legs at the end. With all the heavy support from Sony and their 1st party studios we will see great titles on PS3 beyond 2014 (I think 2016 at least that would fit the 10year cycle plan). MS on the other hand. Well we know how they handled the original Xbox when Xbox 360 arrived. They dropped it like a hot potato. Have a strange feeling this will happen again. Sure multi plat games will still be released on Xbox 360 but you can bet their will be no love anymore from MS after Xbone is out of the doors. So yes i expected that the PS3 will out sale Xbox360 sometime.

    Only thing that is difference was Xbox was fighting an uphill battle with PS2. 360 has a much higher fanbase than Xbox ever did. I think they will probably support it for 3 more years or so but I think PS3 will be around 5 more. Sony goes deep into generations. I guess we will see what MS does now that they have a very popular system.

    Hardware numbers dont really do it for me. I'd prefer my favorite games sell more, but they rarely do. Mafia 1 was an awesome pc game but the sequel wasnt nearly as good. shenmue 2 was like $5 used a month after the game came out?? wth?

    Well given the negative xbox one backlash, I think their sales will take a dive and PS3 will rise. It would be the final nail in the coffin for Microsoft this year, especially after they screw up their E3 conference and try to work around the issues everyone has a problem with and tell them how they are benefiting with these silly policies.
