    Xbox 360 was the "No.1 console in the US in March 2011, based on console and software sales", according to NPD data released by Microsoft.

    433,000 360 units were sold, compared to 290,000 Wii units, 400,000 3DS units and 460,000 DS units[/p]

    Yeah and it looks like the 3DS didn't sell well at all.

    New Pokemon game syndrome is still going on the DS. Also the 3DS has a hell of a pricepoint. People looking for some quick handheld fun will go for the DS as its half the price. It still sold well though. 400,000 units in your first month is not to be sniffed at. Then again the dying DS has sold 460,000 but there's like 5 models all factored into that price.

    Also note that there is no interesting game for most people at the moment on the 3DS.

    do you seriously believe that everyone is a pirate / seriously you just committed every logical fallacy i can imagine with that statement

    also @zorua - its quite ironic isn't it [​IMG] i mean the 3DS can play DS games so why didn't it sell so much ?

    Yeah. I guess most of them don't know that. Or maybe they don't have the money. But anyway, it's just stupid.

    PS3 will still sit in last place in the US regardless because the 'core gamer' market was already taken by the Xbox 360 a while ago...

    I like my 360 which I bought like a year after release.. Never got around to pirating games and homebrew on it though.

    Those numbers are heavily inflated and inaccurate...the 360 did come in first place in home console sales, but it sold no where near 400,000 consoles in the month of March. According to VGChartz the 360 sold just under 290,000 consoles in March 2011. Also the 3DS only selling 400,000 units in March is not the handheld not selling well, I mean it was only out for 5 days in the month of March so basically 80,000 units per day.

    and yet they are only separated by a few million units even though the 360 had over a 1 year head start

    The data's obviously wrong. Even though the XBox 360 is on the top of sales, I bet more people have pirated the Wii.

    No it isn't wrong. This data is about the hardware sales.

    I believe it, everyone I know at school talks more about the 360 more then the PS3 or Wii.
    And not just in school but a lot I know out of school owns one and not the others.
    (I'm even getting me a 360 this weekend because I'm done playing my sisters)
