    Microsoft's vocalist Aaaron Greenberg has claimed that the Xbox 360 will outsell the PS3 this year. However, he noted that MS is not underestimating the PS3 and paid credit to the great games that they have coming up.

    <blockquote>Greenberg has predicted that the Xbox 360 will outsell the PS3 in 2010, reminding everyone that the Xbox 360 achieved this in 2009.

    The direct quote from him reads: “We believe we’ll outsell the PS3 for the full yearâ€. He also added that they are not underestimating the PS3, saying that they have a lot of great games and a great history in this industry.</blockquote>

      And in other news; The Sky is still Blue...

      Perhaps someday S0NY will wake up and finally figure out whether or not they make Home Entertainment Systems (Blu-Ray Players), that can ~possibly~ play Games (al-la the PSP).

      Or a Company that supposed to produce a Games System that can ~also~ handle some light work as a Home Entertainment System (read: Media Center).

      In closing only time and ABOVE ALL Content will be the deciding factor here.
      And, to that end, Microsoft has a clear advantage here.

      and somethign else the nob from MS forgot to mention
      PS3 is nearly hacked now so there will be usb iso loaders hopefully.

      then the sales of the ps3 will ten fold and smash all over 360

      also reason 360 sell so many is cos poor folk who's x360 just ran out of warranty go buy a new one
      not cos they love mr M$ but cos they like to play pirated games
      hence the huge ammount of sales on teh 360
      plain n simple
      if you console is hacked
      IT WILL SELL PLENTY plain n simple

      Your logic is way off.

      Not that many people pirate games that PS3 sales will go up 1000%.

      The 360 game attach rate is to high to account for your claim that millions of people are buying a second 360 to replace a broken one.

      very true, good point :) also it seems the 360 has some of the highest software attach rates and sales of software even though it is hacked (same happened with the ps2).

      i don't see that once the ps3 is hacked that it'll sell millions all of a sudden. cost of ps3 piracy is almost too prohibitive. large .iso sizes, cost of blank bd media, cost of dual layer bd burners, not everyone is going to be able to 'afford' to pirate ps3 titles.

      I can see a massive rise in "Dave the Pirate" style piracy, like the PC-Pre-Internet/PS1/DC days, 'some' people are going to make bucketloads if the PS3 ever plays back-ups.

      Both 360 bundles with 2 or more mediocre games and the controller bundle that has been sold for £5 less than just the controller could counter the attach rate arguement especially for those rebuying due to hardware flaws and the obvious benefits of quieter fan, lower power consumption and for me hdmi port.

      But then again would expect a machine out a year or more longer to have a higher attach rate rgardless of priacy which is actually a small number.

      In writing this it makes me wonder how games on 360 sell so much more than rival platforms and yet the attach rate isn't higher still compared.

      his logic is right. 360 attach rate is the HIGHEST of the 3 latest consoles.
      and im sure he is talking NA. ive said it before, no one gives a **** how a console performs in a country they do not live in.

      also, ps3 being hacked? lol. yeah ok. its 'hacked' to do what geohot wanted it to do. we wont see jack **** for 'iso loaders' anytime soon. IF anything does come out of geohots exploit it will be otherOS stuff which sony is rumoured to be removing in a firmware update anyways. soo, good luck with that.

      I wish M$ and $ony would stop coming out with these annoying statements saying "Our console is better!" "Ours is selling better" "Ours is more powerful". If you play games, you will have already made your mind up which console is more suited to you. And consequently, these statements mean nothing really. We don't have to care about sales as long as they are still selling at LEAST a good few thousand a year because they are still going to make games for them. All these statements do is cause fans to start shouting at other fans.

      Umm your using that funny math again...lets look at the top 20 multiplatform sellers for 2009, I even divided it up by which console and sorted by biggest margin:

      Better sales on PS3:
      Pro Evo Soccer 2010 Ps3 by 1,330,000
      Fifa 10 ps3 by 680,000
      Batman Arkham Asylum PS3 by 390,000
      Street Fighter IV Ps3 by 230,000
      Resident Evil 5 Ps3 by 150,000

      Better Sales on Wii:
      The Beatles: Rock Band Wii by 300,000 but 360 over PS3 by 230,000
      Tiger Woods 10 wii by 240,000 but 360 over ps3 by 100,000

      Better Sales on 360:
      Modern Warfare 2 360 by 2,800,000
      Lego Batman 360 by 1,860,000
      Borderlands 360 by 970,000
      Dragon Age: Origins 360 by 750,000
      Madden NFL 10 360 by 500,000
      Major League Baseball 2009 360 by 460,000
      UFC 2009 360 by 430,000
      Assassins Creed 2 360 by 390,000
      Prototype 360 by 230,000
      Red Faction Guerrilla 360 by 200,000
      Operation Flash Point 2 360 by 190,000
      Brutal Legend 360 by 170,000
      NHL 2010 360 by 130,000

      btw you might want to look at those reports from Ubisoft, EA and Activision, they were from their yearly reports where they were predicting hardware sales...not their software sales. The PS3 did manage to best the 360 5 times last year...and 2 times so far this year (Bayonetta and the second week of Dantes Inferno) so its starting to at least make a good showing but its got a way to go to be able to say its "outselling" the 360 with a straight face...well at least without funny math.

      The attach rate is the total number games sold per console sold. The last numbers I saw still had 360 ahead by at least one game.
      http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2009/04/13/xbox_360_attach_rates/
      I don't know if you would like to provide us with newer numbers.





      Here are the first 4 fairly new cross platform titles I thought of that are not "online blockbuster games like MW2":

      Brutal Legend
      360 sold 0.57m, which would be 1.48% of 360 owners
      PS3 sold 0.40m, which would be 1.26% of PS3 owners

      Dragon Age
      360 sold 1.49m, which would be 3.91% of 360 owners
      PS3 sold 0.73m, which would be 2.29% of PS3 owners

      Bayonetta
      360 sold 0.42m, which would be 1.10% of 360 owners
      PS3 sold 0.46m, which would be 1.45% of PS3 owners

      Assassin's Creed 2
      360 sold 3.40m, which would be 8.92% of 360 owners
      PS3 sold 3.01m, which would be 9.46% of PS3 owners

      I am not seeing a trend in anyone's favor.

      Didn't they ban over a million people ? What are the new attach rate numbers? I've been looking seems like the data is a bit old.
