Default UK Sales jump wk ending Nov 10th

CHRISTMAS BOOSTS UK HARDWARE SALES

Microsoft's machine rockets 46 percent over last week's figures, GameCube stiffs on a 3 percent rise and PS2 smashes the light-barrier

15:19 The Christmas spending rush began in earnest last week as console sales rose across the board in Britain, with big winners emerging as Xbox and PlayStation 2.
Xbox sales rose 46 percent to 15,102 in the week ending November 10. The sound you're hearing is Microsoft staffers screaming for joy, especially when you compare that figure to GameCube sales.

The Nintendo console sold 6,839 machines last week, a rise of a mere 3 percent. Game Boy Advance remained the star of Nintendo's show in the run-up to Christmas, shifting 15,557 units, a rise of 14 percent week over week.

Now for the biggy. PlayStation 2 sold 45,245 consoles in Britain last week, a 14 percent increase over the previous seven days. And with the release of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City last Friday, you can expect this week's figures to increase again. Don't underestimate, etc.

I would hope Starfox is not a system seller, because it sucks bad, Harry Potter is a far better game. Metroid is what I see being Nintendos big title overall, until Zelda.

you can keep up with your misinformation if you want, but incase you missed it...

GameCube not leading Xbox after all

Rob Fahey 12:53 11/11/2002
Typo on leading financial website leads to red faces all round.


Figures published late last week on business news website Yahoo Finance from respected data reporting firm DFC Intelligence which showed Nintendo's GameCube opening up a 500,000 unit lead over Microsoft's Xbox in the USA were the result of a typo, it transpires.

The figures, which were widely reported on the Internet - including on this site - placed the GameCube on an installed base of 2.7 million units in the territory, and the Xbox on 2.2 million. However, a mistake on the part of Yahoo Finance had accidentally inverted the figures - which should have showed Xbox on 2.7 million units, and the Cube on 2.2 million.

As is to be expected, the PlayStation 2 is significantly ahead of both consoles, with an installed base of 11.2 million.

GamesIndustry.biz apologises unreservedly for any confusion caused by the reporting of these mistaken figures.

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content...me=ret&aid=924


now past that im sure that GC and XBOX will be fighting it out moving back and forth in the number 2 spot as key titles are released.. it's expected when sales numbers are that close.. however If I had to put money down on it, I would say XBOX will finish No.2 in US and the UK over GC and GC will take it in Japan no problem..

I'm a lay GC owner in this field, but I agree with this.

your right about that, the competition between the two will make it better for both the owners of XBOX and GC.. but some fail to see this..

But i suppose world wide sales count more?
Edit, uk is GC's, sure the xbox bundle with sega and the ones in toys are us are attrating a lot of punters but with the coming mario and starfox, eternal darkness bundles the sales should kreep back even, i think GC total sales is the most as xbox hasn't exceeded the 400,000 mark yet with about 333,000 i believe

all that counts is that players get the games they want to play and enjoy them.

Probably. However, region sales are very important when developers/publishers decide on what console(s) to put fairly region specific games.

Eg. How many big Japanese style RPGs do you see out/coming out on the Xbox? With only about a 1/4 million consoles sold in Japan, it doesn't make much sense to put them on M$'s console.

There already is a winner: PS2 has decimated the competition. It's inferior, but so what, it still sells more than GC and XBoX. It killed DC even though that was an awesome system with great games. What do you mean there won't be a clear winner?

That's a helluva increase in uk sales.... I have actually noticed MORE people interested in Xbox though. When I go shopping to look at games, rather than 1 or 2 people looking at the Xbox stand and selection of games there are now like 12 or 13 people. I think the main problem in the UK is that Nintendo are doing their old trick.... NOT RELEASING GAMES until months and months after the US and JAP counterparts. I look at the xbox stand and all new releases appear a week after the USA.... the selection of games in the UK is very good for xbox now. GC still limited to 3 or 4 good games, I know more exist.... its just nintendo DONT give a **** about europe

I do agree with those points zeus, there is a lot more interest of xbox in uk but i wouldn't call games being released all the time exactly right, its releasing about the same as GC with its last exclusive game before Blinx (which got 2/5 ) was its first exclusive game since Sega GT which was about 3 months too long, we did get one europe game, doshin the giant, which was good and all but was no black and white for PC. You would think Europe as a critical ground, its sony's biggest selling point, 1 in 4 houses in the uk alone have a PSX or PS2 with just 1 in 10 having nintendo products and about 1 in 19 for xbox, seeing as Japan and America will be even places surely they should try to get a grip on europe like Sony have already have! UK only just ED for christ sake, talk about being late and we wont even have metroid untill after christmas, thank god for my cube switch for NSTC-PAL

Financial times, digitizer etc, i do read you know about the welfare of my country. I also like it when you put up gamecube sales 230,000 xbox 233,000 in uk, thats quite funny considering mario sunhine has now sold over 400,000 coppies in uk that must mean i have bought two of them
