    Hey, all. Yes, another thread about sales figures, but these are from the CSFB, which hopefully means a little less "spin". Here's the article:

    "Sony leads console sales by a hair’s breadth, having sold 962,000 PlayStation 2 consoles between November 11 and December 8"...
    Hmmmm...not bad for a year old console during a time frame considered to be a prime launch of (2) new competing systems.
    It's a great time to be a gamer..no[​IMG]

    The CSFB numbers don't include figures from Wal-Mart. And from what I understand Nintendo is shipping a LOT of consoles there. So my guess would be that the numbers are probably a lot closer than that report claims. Which means basically we have three successful consoles being sold in the U.S. at the moment. It's going to be interesting to see how this all plays out within the next year.

    Are you trying to suggest WM sold 400k GCs and no XBOXs or PS2s???

    Wall Mart sells XBOXs and PS2s as well as GCs...

    They probably have a similar sales ratio as seen above...
