July sees PS3 overtake 360 in Canada

Post by Impostorzim » Tue Aug 28, 2007 23:07

Brendan Sinclair, GameSpot wrote:When game-industry research firm NPD releases US retail figures for the month of July, some analysts expect that they will show the PlayStation 3 outsold the Xbox 360 for the first time, thanks to a pre-E3 Media & Business Summit price drop. Regardless of how the numbers shake out in the US, NPD confirmed to GameSpot today that the PS3 outsold Microsoft's console north of the border.

The PS3 managed to move more than 15,000 systems in Canada for the month, overtaking the 13,000 Xbox 360s sold. However, both consoles were bested handily by Nintendo's Wii, which racked up more than 36,000 sales for the month. On the portable side of the market, the DS topped all non-PC platforms in July with almost 46,000 units sold, well ahead of the PlayStation Portable's 6,000 tally.

Pretty neat, no? I mean, Wii totally killed the competition, but I would expect the 360 on top...PS3 managing to sell 2,000 units more, thats pretty cool. Canadians are crazy I guess.

The price drop really helped, people prefer Sony probably because of how good the PS2 was. I think the console would be alright if it wasn't so damn expensive. Or if it didn't use blu-ray, or if it didn't...

Oh god, it's never gonna end is it?

Now with the price drop I think Sony should take some of the next steps in making sure that game companies get to work on EXCLUSIVE games for the system. SquareEnix had Final Fantasy XIII to be an exclusive but I don't know what the hell to believe anymore. I also know that they are working on a game for the PS3 titled White Knight Story.

Sony really needs to get into gear. As much as I would regret these words I think God of War III would be best put on the PS3. It would help alot. Of course I would be sad considering I have a PS2.

Meh, I was expecting the PS3 to outsell the Xbox 360 every month since its release. However the Xbox 360 is continuing to pull ahead worldwide with the PS3 falling more and more behind. And then there's Halo 3. 8)

Tell you the truth, I haven't checked and I'm afraid to. I never really looked at it, but the video game industry is fucking risky or something along the lines. Companies lose so much money over one slip up, like having to re-rate and re-stock an entire game (GTA: San Andreas), or not selling as many copies as expected (Lol @ E.T.). Anyway, last time I checked I read that Sony is losing alot of money and even in the long run with good cash flow will still lose alot of money. It will be a while till they are out of the red...not that they owe anybody money...or do they? :think:

Sony is having huge money problems all across the board because of a massive recall they had to do.

They just need to fix the damn console. You know, get rid of the shitty stuff no one cares about like blu-ray and the physics chip.
