    I hope they release numbers for each major region soon too.

    I'd be interested in knowing how many PS2's have sold since the introductions of XBox and GCN...

    I myself have personally purchased 3.2 million Xbox systems (I like to have a couple of extra lying around the house) so I know these numbers can't be real.

    Just to note, the article you linked to says that those numbers are approximate systems shipped, not the amount of systems sold.

    Camp, how have the Xbox sales been since the drop? Has there been a big turnaround? Since the drop, what is the ratio of Xboxes being sold to PS2's or GCN's being sold? Rough estimates or just what it seems like to you type of info is fine. You don't need to give hard numbers or anything, heh. [​IMG]

    ZDNet reports an 800% increase since the price drop. Top article today.

    Ryan,

    Honestly, I've been on vacation since the price drop. So I haven't seen hard numbers.

    I'll report back on Tuesday. I think you'll find whatever increase in Xbox sales will be equaled by PS2 sales.

    800% would sure be nice though. However ridiculous that number is.

    The thing is, right before the X-Box dropped, the PS2 dropped, and right after the GCN dropped. If anything, all of the sales of all of the consoles would increase.

    What I wanna see is post-E3 sales.

    Maybe the guy figured it couldn't hurt to give Microsoft some extra flattery since he speaking was at their event? [​IMG]

    Hey, you can't blame the guy for speaking the truth. I think that PS2 sales are going to reach their "terminal velocity"... and then SLOWWW... the market is really saturated with PS2s right now. I think that gamers will CRAVE something MORE... and RIGHT THERE... is... THE MICROSOFT XBOX

    On second thought, maybe this joke is a bad idea.

    Let's not forget that Genesis had a big chunk of sales and was doing very well until the SNES came out and ended up the premiere gaming system of its generation.
