catching feelings? You came in the thread name calling and I responded. Seems like you're the one that caught feelings
the fact that you responded when i never mentioned you specifically means you felt some sort of way because you know it applies.

Writing to investors today, Pachter said that Xbox 360 sales hit 1.44 million units in November, representing a 5 percent gain over the same period last year. Microsoft easily outsold both the Wii and PlayStation 3, which saw unit sales reach 1.05 million and 750,000 units, respectively. Wii sales were down 17 percent year over year, but PlayStation 3 sales were up a whopping 41 percent, Pachter reported.

Microsoft's success last month was due mainly to inordinately strong performance during the week of Black Friday. The software giant said last week that it sold 960,000 Xbox 360 units and 750,000 Kinect sensors during that week alone. It was the biggest week in the console's history.

But unit sales are just one piece of the puzzle for Microsoft. The company is launching its new Xbox update tomorrow that, aside from a revamped interface and improved voice-recognition controls, will boast support for new programming from 40 content providers. Over the next month, many of those providers, including Verizon Fios TV and ESPN, will be bringing their content to the console. Next year, HBO Go and Comcast's Xfinity On Demand will be offered to U.S.-based Xbox 360 owners.


The push to live television is something that Microsoft believes will help make the Xbox 360 more than just a device consumers turn on to play games. In fact, Microsoft's goal is to make its console the go-to device for consumers every time they turn on their TVs.

But even with that opportunity to do more, gamers are still flocking to retailers to buy titles for Microsoft's console. In fact, last month, U.S. consumers spent $675 million on Xbox 360 games, Pachter estimates, jumping 12 percent over last year. PlayStation 3 software sales rose 11 percent to $430 million, while Wii sales plummeted 19 percent to land at $260 million.

All told, consumers spent $1.5 billion on video games last month, Pachter said, but he cautioned that it won't be enough to help the game industry get out of the red this year.

"The crowded release schedule triggered competitive behavior, with more marketing spending than we have seen in past Novembers, and we think that the huge marketing push from publishers and competitive retail climate could help sales throughout December," Pachter wrote to investors. "With that said, it is almost a certainty that 2011 will end up as the third consecutive year for declining software sales."

However, Pachter doesn't have the final word on monthly game sales; NPD does. And that firm is expected to make its data available after markets close on Thursday.

I just saw the actual official sales numbers by region and

360 literally outsold PS3 here in America by a 2.5:1 ratio. Thank god for Sony's popularity in the other regions.

Why do you care so much? 14 pages of the same 4 people defending a piece of plastic like they share a last name.

...... Because I just saw the numbers earlier, and saw this post in my control panel? If it wasn't for coolio's pointless post with some girl being choked with a belt, I wouldn't have bothered entering the thread because it wouldn't have had a new post in it. 2.5:1 is huge, and instead of making another stupid thread like other people on this forum, I decided to post my fascination here. I'd be just as fascinated if the PS3 outsold the 360 2.5:1 here in America, it's a crazy statistic.

Why do you even bother coming into these threads if it bothers you so much? You seem to be the one catching feelings for some weird reason

And Japan is 6:1, is that fascinating too? Not really right.

Point is, they are neck and neck sales wise regardless of the console's launch year. I think it's fascinating that you guys hype up your preferred console boasting and always bring up sales, when in reality it hasn't sold as many considering it came out a year prior to it's counterpart.

What's the ratio being only up 1.7million with a years head start? About 10million units behind?
