The thing I don't get is everyone at Microsoft, in particular that Arron Greenberg muppet is saying how great the Xbox360 is doing and how terrible the Sony PS3 is doing financially.
e.g this interview heading is on another forum just now.
Greenberg: PS3 is hemorrhaging at sales, Lost and Damned could've beat Killzone 2
If you do the actual math Sony are doing considerably better than the Xbox360.
For example say you took all those 391k sales to be just the Xbox360 Pro.
I know the big seller is the Arcade, but to be fair I will do the math on the more expensive Pro as its the average of the three consoles (including the more expensive Elite).
RRP £170 * 391k = £66,470,000
Whereas the PS3
RRP £300 * 276k = £82,800,000
How on earth could Microsoft be gloating over making almost £20 million less on sales?
I just know the prices for the UK, but somone in another region could do the math for their region to see who's on top of total amount earned.
I have just looked at Amazon.com, so am hoping this is the USA RRP of the two consoles.
But the PS3 is $399.99, 360 Pro is $299.99
$300 * 391k = $117 300 000
$400 * 276k = $110,400,000
So the Xbox360 has made $7 mill more this month in the US, but
with Sony you also have the PS2 selling 130k, to factor into this, which on Amazon is selling at $130.
130 * 131k = $17,030,000
Of the two I know who I would rather be.
