Hey, better late than never to post this, right? So anyway, I am usually the one to post these and since school just started I have just been somewhat busy and was not able to post these numbers any time that I remembered to do so, for that I am deeply sorry. Anyway in July you will see that the new Xbox 360 seemed to have quite the effect on sales because this month the 360 is leading the pack and you will never believe it but the Wii came in third place, I know! In July, the top game in first and second place on 360 and PS3 respectively is EA’s NCAA Football 11. The numbers are below!
Xbox 360 444,000 SOLD ↓ 9K ( -2%)
Nintendo DS 398,000 SOLD ↓ 113K (-22%)
Nintendo Wii 254,000 SOLD ↓ 169K (-40%)
PlayStation 3 215,000 SOLD ↓ 90K (-30%)
PSP 84,000 SOLD ↓ 37K (-31%)

So I passed a forum post and couldn’t help but noticed it was worked on too hard to not get noticed by everyone, so here you go. I’ll keep my eyes on the forums and If anything else like this is written, I may post it up guys.

“I dislike PlayStation Plus. Sony tried pulling a marketing scheme which in all honesty isn’t that clever and that’s what initially soured my take on it. Let’s take a look at what it offers point-for-point. (SOURCE)

SOCOM 4 has gained much attention over time since it was announced a few months back, the game will be made by Zipper interactive, unlike SOCOM: Confrontation, which was plagued with serious connection and network problems when released, So even though this game is being delayed, this is mainly why. Zipper Interactive is delaying the game to avoid that very reason it seems.
Senior community manager Jeremy Dunham had to say, “While we’re certainly aware that you’ve been looking forward to playing SOCOM 4 this year, we don’t want to take any shortcuts. Instead, we want to deliver the best and most immersive SOCOM game we possibly can and we’re going to use our extra time to do just that.” So the game will be released now in 2011, no specific time range in 2011, just sometime next year. Although it will probably be in a time range that wont conflict with a Call of Duty game or Killzone 3 next year.
Finally, it looks like Sony has returned to profitability today. The company recorded net profits of 25.7 billion yen during its fiscal first quarter, up from the 37.1 billion yen loss it suffered last year during the same time period.
Sony was able to reduce its loses this year to just 3.8 billion yen, a significant improvement from the 36.7 billion yen loss the year before.
The PS3 was a major contributing factor to the turnaround, Sony said. PS3 hardware for the quarter hit 2.4 million units sold worldwide, up from 1.1 million the prior quarter. PS3 software sales also nearly doubled with 24.8 million units sold, up from 14.8 million.
PSP sales dropped in the quarter to 1.2 million from 1.3 million, while its software sales saw an increase to 9.2 million units from 8.3 million.
Sony is forecasting 15 million PlayStation 3 units sold worldwide this fiscal year, its highest to date. It’s forecasting about a million unit drop in PSP and PS2 sales, however.
The PlayStation 3′s worldwide install base is currently at 38 million.

Last month (After Break)
The day has finally come, Sony has finally added a highly anticipated, very cool thing to Home. Sometime tomorrow (July 15th), you will be able to go into the “exclusives” store in The Mall and pick up a Pool Table and a Dart Board for your personal apartment and your friends will be able to jump into your apartment and join you to play games, finally you can do something cool in your apartment (although they still need to add more like TV’s, Netflix, and stterio’s) … Europe has had these for at least two weeks already. For the full list of what released in Home this week, look at the post above!
Herman Hulst of Guerrilla Games has recently described that the Helghasts have a human side of them but view themselves as the superior being and this will focused on being told through the story of Killzone. “Although the Helghast are physically still human, they consider themselves superior to the human race in terms of society and culture.”
“They possess a mentality that’s similar to how the Nazis viewed those not part of the Aryan bloodline. Helghast look down on humans as weak, lying, and spineless. In Killzone 3, we show that even the Helghast have some humanity left in them. We’re weaving a story that has more shades of grey than the trite representation of ‘good vs. evil’… We explore the notion that even honourable soldiers have to make debatable decisions at times for the greater good — or simply for their own survival.” explained Hulst.
