Microsoft is rapidly losing its year long head start to Nintendo and Sony
>> From roughlydrafted.com:
Resumo, Wii passou o 360 ja, detono geral, batendo o Xbox360 e o PS3 juntos.Nintendo's Wii, while nearly impossible to find in retail stores, sold slightly above the company's second quarter June 2007 goal of 9 million units, reaching sales of 9,270,000.
Sony's PlayStation 3 also edged slightly above its 6 million goal for Q2 by shipping 6,210,000 units to stores. There is still significant inventory left unsold in stores, which prompted Sony to cut the PS3's price in July by $100, to $499 and $599 for the two PS3 models.
Microsoft had originally set a target of 15 million Xbox 360s by the middle of 2007, but dropped that target down to 12 million. Even with lowered expectations, the company was still unable to meet its goal, having only shipped 11,600,000 units by the end of June.
For the first half of 2007, while Nintendo sold 6 million units a quarter and Sony shipped 2 million per quarter, Microsoft was only about to push out 600,000 units a quarter, in large part because the retail channel is already full of unsold Xbox 360s.
When looking at actual worldwide sales reported by manufacturers, 360 unit sales are flattening out dramatically.
Microsoft has now had two quarters of sales well behind last year's sales.
In its second year, the Xbox 360 is slipping behind every quarter in year over year sales, and not by a little. This years' Xbox 360 sales are less than half those of 2006's.
While Windows Enthusiasts like to deride PS3 sales as low, Sony's relatively high priced console is selling at identical levels to Microsoft's 360 figures from last year after its initial stumble out of the gate.
In other words, the PS3 is matching the Xbox 360's first year sales while 360 itself isn't, allowing Sony to incrementally catch up while Microsoft languishes with static sales.
In just half a year, Sony is at half of Microsoft's sales, despite the Xbox 360 having been on sale for over a year and a half. Nintendo's Wii, however, is taking off in a way that leaves both of the HD consoles behind. It appears poised to pass total sales of the 360 next month at the end of the third quarter.
Apesar de todo mundo falar mal das vendas do PS3 ele vendeu O MESMO TANTO que o Xbox360 dentro do mesmo periodo de tempo e agora está igualando as vendas no presente, ja tendo passado de 6,2 milhoes de consoles vendidos.
As vendas do Xbox360 no mundo inteiro tem caido vertiginosamente nos ultimos meses, sendo que ele vendeu METADE do que vendeu ano passado (efeito red light?)
Xbox 360 on Life Support in Japan
>> From xbox360.ign.com:
Resumo, o Xbox360 não ta vendendo nada la, 75% dos japoneses gastam grana com a nintendo (wii e DS) ps3, ps2, psp e 360 dividem o resto, em agosto só foram vendidos 11,288 xbox360 (lalala ta parecendo xbox1)Japanese gamers continue to play favorites with the home team, handing over 75 percent of their gaming yen to Nintendo's DS and Wii last month. The remaining systems are left to fight over the scraps, and the Xbox 360 just barely managed to gain one percent (11,288 units) of the market share for August 2007, according to recent Japanese sales data from Famitsu.
Microsoft's closest competitor in the U.S., the PlayStation 3 seized 7.5 percent of hardware sales (81,541 units) during the month in Japan.
Oque se concluí?
Essa geração vai estar assim em 2009-2010
Wii em primeiro lugar com larga vantagem
PS3 em Segundo, vai passar o Xbox360 provavelmente ainda em 2008
Xbox360 vai fica em terceiro denovo e eu arrisco falar que ele vai morrer nos 40 milhões de consoles vendidos a não ser que a microsoft consiga fazer um milagre pra recuperar a imagem da marca.
O mais engraçado, eh que apesar de eu ser um pouco mais "caixista" do que sonysta pczista ou nintendista, eu nao consigo sentir pena da microsoft.... Eu to aqui pensando "BEM FEITO, BEM FEITO" e realmente penso isso sem remorso....
Será que é porque eu perdi 2 consoles pras 3 red lights ou eu sou mais sonysta e nintendista do que eu pensava?
candy for the mind.
