    Microsoft will quite clearly be well chuffed with this, as the 360 is doing magnificent numbers during the launches of 2 rival consoles, Gears is still making waves, and the lovely wireless controller also does huge numbers.

    The interesting one is the Wii controller, they sold 646k controllers for only 1.2m consoles! Pretty astonishing really. Of course, PS3 owners have no friends so they don't really need extra controllers

    it was a good holiday season for everyone. All three consoles made their shipping goals. Props to gears for such a great showing.

    Ok, apparently your guys' perspectives on Microsoft's sales figures are off if you think those 1.1 mil were sold to actual customers.

    That number stands for what they shipped to retailers, not a sales figure from actual customer sales.

    strange COD3 360, outsold COD3 ps2. Did they come out at the same time?


    It's pretty impressive that with 360's limited install base being < 10 million for most of the year, it managed to get 3 games in the top 10. PS2 getting 5 in the top 10 with 120 million consoles.

    It will be interesting to see how the 360 does next holiday season. Bill Gates could be right in the assumption that the '07 holiday season can be very telling of how the console race will go.

    This is the NPD isn't it, they track sells not shipping. Why do you doubt the 360 could have sold that many?

    This info isn't from Microsoft, this is from NPD who monitor console sales, not shipped consoles.

    I think it's safe to say the 360 is going to have a great '07 holiday if everything goes to plan, with a 360 price drop during 2007 combined with the release of 2 of the most highly anticipated next-gen games, Halo 3 and GTA 4. Microsoft is bound to have bundles for both games too.

    Edit: Oops I seem to have double posted, apologies.

    Since after xmas when I was at a local gamestop, bestbuy, circuit city, and wallmart; they still had loads of them appearing as though they hadn't sold hardly anything. I don't really doubt the the ability of the 360 to sell well, as I myself have one and enjoy it. I just don't like how microsoft produces their sales figures, sony and nintendo have it pretty straight, they produce actual sales figures and the amount they have shipped.

    ok ill tell you this. the only reason ps3 and wii have the correct ship/sold is because everyone knows new consoles sale out. xbox360 sold out when it first came out. everyone knows this and you should also

    Yea, the 07 holiday season should be very interesting.
    The 360 will have Halo 3 and a price drop, and the PS3 will have some of there big titles out by then, i don't know if they will have a price drop are not by then, and the Wii will still be in the mix as well.
    I hope all three do well in 2007.

    But Microsoft didn't produce these numbers, and nether did Sony or Nintendo, it's the NPD witch is a sells tracking service

    Honestly, I still don't think it's too late for Microsoft and Sony to bury the hatchet and do what is right. 2007 could also be a nightmare for the industry if the Wii keeps it's momentum up..

    Can you imagine if both the PS3 and the 360 have to endure Wii ports? You have been warned people.

    Lol, of course I do. I'm just glad the PS3 didn't have all the horrible hardware problems the 360 did when it launched, I waited half a year till I got a 360. I waited 1 month to get a PS3.
