The latest US sales figures are in and the guys from Redmond are still smiling. Microsoft and Nintendo are based in Redmond and it does seem to be the lucky place for gaming companies.

Halo 3 has continued to sell very well and is still topping the charts, the 360 however has been overtaken by the DS but is still ahead of the Wii which is a good sign for Microsoft.

Sony had a terrible week with it’s PS3… So what are the actual figures.

The top 360 game is obviously Halo 3 which moved 562,408 units. The top Wii game Wii Sports shipped 95,800. What is amazing is that it has been on the chart for 48 weeks now. The top PS3 game NBA Live 08 shipped a paltry 48,088. 60 000 less than the Xbox 360 version. (However the PS2 version sold 8k more than the 360)

In hardware sales we have the following

360 – 129,896
Wii – 95,800
PS3 – 29,718

Total software Sales

360 – 1,467,311
Wii – 454,277
PS3 – 286,228

I am very interested to see how the recent PS3 model changes and price cuts are going to change these numbers. The PS3 cannot continue to be outsold by its weaker sibling the PS2

    Yoh! Seems all those Halo 2 Xbox players finally bought a X360 for Halo 3! 🙂

  • abev

    Fifa 08 is top of the pops in the EU and UK.
    Just so you know that Halo isnt “obviously” top everywhere.

  • Ruslan

    @Abev – Shall i find a link as to what format of FIFA08 is selling more or can you deduct it by yourself? I pity you for missing out on so many great games, perhaps you are waiting for a “free” copy? 😉

  • LazySAGamer

    @Abev, I don’t know which source you are using as I can’t find software charts for Europe… However according to vhchartz you have the following hardware sales in the UK for the last week.

    Xbox 360 – 26,243
    Wii – 25,373
    PS3 – 6,757

    Ouch…

  • abev

    Huh?? I made no refernce to console.
    All I said is that fifa is outselling halo no matter what platform!
    And to ruslan, what are you on about?? I have fifa, so what am I missing?
    You guys having a slow morning?

  • LazySAGamer

    @Abev, which is why I said “I can’t find software charts for Europe”, if you could point me in your sources direction it would be most appreciated.

  • Ruslan

    @Abev – Sure FIFA08 is on the top UK software sales charts, what I meant is what FORMAT of the game is selling the most?

  • abev

    Ruslan I’ll say it again “Huh?? I made no refernce to console.
    All I said is that fifa is outselling halo no matter what platform!”

    My point is that halo 3 has been toppled, but the news posted on this topic made it seem like halo 3 was still running gaming charts, which may be the case in usa but certainly not everywhere.

  • Ruslan

    Well dear Abev, the topic above is about how Halo moved hardware and software sales in the US. Wont ponder explaining that again as I think you will understand. 😉

    Besides, with sales of over $300 Us dollars thus far who the **** cares about your opinion about Halo being toppled? Why dont you get a PS3 game to keep you distracted or you waiting for another free copy to arrive?

  • LazySAGamer

    @Ruslan, I would expect a game of Halo 3’s stature to make more than $300… 😉

    Now lets all play nice as well :)… Abev I am still looking for the facts that FIFA 08 toppled Halo 3. Could you please post the link?

  • abev

    Honestly Ruslan I dont get you!
    what is this supposed to mean… “Why dont you get a PS3 game to keep you distracted or you waiting for another free copy to arrive?”?
    You keep bringing it up, but I have no idea what you are on about, I now have five ps3 games none of which I am finished with.

    Lazy I cant find the link now but I will keep looking

  • Ruslan

    I suppose he’s looking for this link :

  • abev
