    I just realized Zenien, that you're too banned to reply. But I just want you to know that the 360 outsold the PS3 for another year, making those claims that the PS3 is on track to surpassing the 360 completely debunked.

    Alright everyone, let discussion begin.

    You doubted? Month after month it was always ahead. I don't know why people (HippieHunter) kept saying that according to VGChartz the PS3 is outselling the 360 when the 360 is millions of units ahead.

    Point being: MGS4 on 360 looking more likely by the day.

    Does the NPD do worldwide or US only?

    US and Canada only. Though, if the Europe numbers are close it seems obvious that the Xbox 360 and PS3 are at least in a dead heat, or the 360 is selling marginally better. What is really telling, though, is the attach rate. Higher the attach rate, more developers are going to be convinced that making games for the 360 is the thing to do.

    As if it wasn't appealing enough being the easiest to develop for.

    There's a few reasons:

    • Short Campaign.
    • No Split-Screen co-op.
    • Too many good games on the way without those problems.
    • Too many good games on the way period.

    CoD4 had to bite the bullet so that I could get Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, Bioshock, Halo 3, etc... :(

    We had to convince Havok of this as well: Believe me, as short as you may think the campaign is, you will never be thinking that while playing it or when you finish it. It's the best FPS campaign out. It was an easy decision for me to buy because I was able to get in on the MP beta, and that also is the best out right now, so no matter how short or how bad or good the campaign was, I was already sold on the game for the multiplayer alone. Much to my surprise the campaign was of equal quality.

    Split-screen co-op...can't help you there but is that honestly reason enough to pass up the best game of the year?

    Great news!!! It really isnt hard to see why though the 360 sells so well. What a line up so far this year...And I havent even played Call of Duty 4 yet!!!

    Over the last few months, I've had to complete Bioshock, Halo 3, Mass Effect, Orange Box, Pro Evolution Soccer, Assassins Creed...Now finally, I prepare to get myself CoD4!!

    The Xbox 360 obviously outsells the Playstation 3 in the North American and Australian markets. However, the Playstation 3 outsells the Xbox 360 in the European and Japanese markets enough to where the Playstation 3 outsells the Xbox 360 worldwide.

    There is a world outside the United States you know :o.

    If it outsold it worldwide, the installed base wouldn't be what it is, for either console. It's a pipe dream. The thing has flat out failed, the end.

    Hahaha, even with worldwide sales taken into consideration, the PS3 is NOT outselling the Xbox360. It's behind by millions of units.

    If it was outselling the 360 worldwide in the month of December it still would be behind millions of units. :huh:

    nexgenwars.com is pretty accurate. Every time official data comes out it's pretty close to the real numbers.
