The increase of sales for microsoft was 5 times as much as the increase of sales for nintendo.

But sony's increase of sales were twice as much as microsoft, thats no good...

No MSFT sold 230,000 consoles while Nintendo sold 112,300 consoles in May, therefore it's more like 2 to 1 or just over twice the number of gamecube's sold.

Nice find by the way.

We are in July.

And I didn't see it say that.

So I don't know.

the article summarized......


all consoles picked up steam in May, with PS2 increasing it's already HUGE advantage, and Microsoft doing better than Nintendo.



Present trends continue, my prediction from way back will eventually come true.....Only two shall remain, Sony and Microsoft.

PlayStation 2 went on sale more than a year before Xbox. It offers more than 500 game titles, about 10 times as many as can be played on the GameCube and Xbox combined.


WHAT? that doesn't make sense...theres no way in hell xbox and gc have a combined total of 50 games. WTF?

Nice catch, I didn't even notice it. There are at least 80 games out right now for the xbox and you would assume there are at least 20 games out for the gamecube, so at the very least it would be 500/100=5 times as many games. That's not a huge gap considering it has been out for a whole year longer.
