Flame? Don't think so.

Laugh at the vgchartz fanboy fantasyland numbers once again. Vgchartz just got bïtchslapped with real numbers for France today and were finally forced to fix their as usual massively inflated 360 numbers and undercounted PS3 numbers - although they in a final bit of 360 fanboy defiance refuse to use the actual number for France are are still inflating the 360 numbers a bit.

Ever since the PS3 started outselling the 360 in worldwide sales the Xbox fanboy, ioi, at has been in full scale damage control mode trying to keep the 360 numbers close to the PS3 in worldwide sales.

Gamers are getting tired of these Xbox fanboys in the media crap.

Enough with the bogus sales numbers at sites like vgchartz.
Enough with the bogus comparison videos at sites like gametrailers.
Enough with the bogus review scores at sites like EGM/1Up.

Yes. Inflated 360 numbers.

Just like the time when VGC only had half a million Mass Effect units recorded and Microsoft was reporting over a MILLION sold.
fusionboxer  +   2942d ago
ps3 sales will most likely surpass 360's
I hate to say it, but when they include Japan the ps3 will most likely see a significant jump in sales. I just checked last week and the ps3 sold about 74k and the 360 sold about 12k.

Anyway this is kinda pathetic anyway. Vgchartz is usually incorrect and whether or not your pro ps3 or 360, you shouldn't fully depend on this particular site as solid proof of a point.

Also the n4g article says itself. VGchartz "estimate" (keyword here) for week ending blah blah.

But yea just wanted to throw that out there. If ps3 sales are even close to last weeks then the ps3 has won once again in worldwide hardware sales. Funny though that the site fails to mention they don't have numbers for japan yet.
pwnsause  +   2943d ago
expect this to change onto PS3s Favor against the 360 while the Wii laughs all the way after the JP sales charts release
Spike47  +   2943d ago
111,000 for Ps3 and 127,000 for xbox360.

with japan the PS3 will rise big time while the xbox360 will only inscrease to 134,000 or something like that.

Still, I wanna see the NPD numbers, they're more accurate.

today's january 16 right?
MK_Red  +   2943d ago
Hope the numbers for Uncharted are true and it is indeed at 800k and even better, hopefully it will reach 1 million soon. The game definitly deserves it.
Also, hopefully the numbers for AC are also true. That game deserves to be a true best seller.
PS360WII  +   2943d ago
Yes I want Uncharted to be a million seller as well. That game rocks! I had no idea Flash Focus already broke a million though and Mario is up to 4.5 and good numbers for both versions of Assassins Creed ^^
SoulReaper  +   2943d ago
Uncharted is doing great ..It will be a one million seller soon..

The PS3 outsold the 360 probaly by 30k or mroe if they added Japan sales..
JBaby343  +   2943d ago
I Don't Know How Accurate These Are
But I think it's good that PS3 keeps up like it is because with Japan numbers it will certainly rise even higher. Also I'm glad to see Uncharted on it's way to 1 million because that game definitely deserves it.
SmokeyMcBear  +   2943d ago
so uh, the ps3 is selling more software than the 360... didnt see that one coming
Cyrus365  +   2943d ago
Those numbers aren't updated, the hardware # are, but the software numbers aren't....

PS3 outsold 360 last week by 80 K or so, assuming PS3 sells relatively the same this week in japan, it's looking like it's only outsell 360 by 40 K this week.
actas123  +   2943d ago
That is not right. I don't know where u got the 80k from.. The numbers are consistent w/ last weeks numbers.. PS3 is outselling 360 by almost the same margin when including Japan
power of Green  +   2943d ago

This is saying PS3 outsold the 360(w/JAPAN)

so how you came to that conclusion, is BEYOND ME.

If VG-charts can't come with-in a 10k margin for error difference with the NPD vs VG-charts I'm going to call complete BS every time I see a VG post.

the big thing here is "excluding japan" which almost certainly means the ps3 outsold the 360 WW this week

nice to see that the ps2 is still getting above 100k sales every week- thats quite a feat for a console with no particularly exciting games scheduled- and the price cut to £50 will probably boost it above all next-gen consoles for a few weeks (well maybe not the wii)

oh so now VG Chartz is innacurate huh?but when the Xbox 360 totally outsold the PS3 you would get on your knees for VG Chartz

Get use to it,Xbox 360 sales aren't going to get any better and the PS3 is going to outsell the Xbox 360 soon
SWORDF1SH  +   2943d ago
if you look kermit. he says that vg charts hates consoles that are NOT the 360. so why youre going on about him loving it when 360 was on top of sales makes no sence
JBaby343  +   2943d ago
VG Chartz Hated PS3
For all of 2007. It would only be fair if they started "hating" the 360 now displaying poorer sales figures. Maybe game reviewers will switch too and start giving 360 games lower scores and PS3 games higher scores to even out all the bias from last year. I for one would like to see the wrongs righted. If you don't agree then just shut up about them sucking.
salgoods  +   2943d ago
The 360 in its second year has managed to sell, with all of its really big hitters coming out, just 7.3M units. The PS3 with only a handful of big hitters and competition on both sides from Microsoft and Nintendo (that remember the 360 didn’t have in its first year), has managed to sell in 14 months 8.9M units. Europe still has 3-4 months of sales yet to reach one year. So if we take the 8.9 as it stands now and include 3-4 months of Europe sales it will probably be about 10-10.5M units by April. But we’ll take the initial 2 months of Japan and America sales that cover Nov-Dec of 2006 off that figure to give us a rough indication of global sales for the year, and your at about 9-9.5M units after one year.

That’s approx. 2M unit difference for the PS3 compared to the 360 after one year.

This year, PS3’s big hitters arrive, so lets say Sony manage to increase that gap for 2008 by 2M more units, as those titles will probably shift a few more units.

Now, if the 360 sells the same this year as last year, that’s 7.3M units to add to its 16-17M units it already has shipped, that equals approx. 23-24M units worldwide by the end of 2008.

If the PS3 sells 2M units more this year over its first year sales, thats:

9.5M (first years estimated global sales) + 11.5M (2M units more for 2008) = 21M units. Add-on the initial 1.3M units we took off for Nov-Dec of 2006 for America and Japan and your at, 22.3M units by the end of 2008.

Even if we say next year those big hitters for PS3 have NO impact and the sales remain the same.

9.5 + 9.5 + 1.3 = 20.3M units. So the gap between PS3 and the 360 would only be about 2 to 3M units by the end of 2008. Now thats just estimates, but you see the general direction this is going, and thats just after one more year of sales. Even if the differences in sales are half of what i’ve just estimated them to be, it would only be 1.5 to 2 years away that the gap is closed. So, 2009 could just see the PS3 take the lead"

This is the eighth time in a row you've copied and pasted this comment, and you didn't even write it originally. At least in the beginning you were giving attribution to the original author. Do you think you could come up with something new?
scoobysnacks  +   2942d ago
they say imitation is the best form of flattery. You made reference to me the first few times you posted this, but if your gonna keep quoting me, please at least give a link to the original post, thx very much. Also, just my opinion, but if you keep quoting the same thing over and over again, in such quick succession, people think you start to sound like a broken record and won't listen anymore.

On a separate note, to all, how come LanRanger gets a disagree for stating that Salgoods didn't make the original post. Some xbox 360 fans on this site, i swear just log into any ps3 thread and click disagree on any PS3 fan they see, regardless of the comment.

More numbers from the world's most reliable source!

Seriously though, I think their numbers are... educated guesses, at best. That's just my opinion, though, I could be wrong. It's just that whenever the NPD figures come out, they always seem to contradict VG Chartz.

Sweet man, PS3 sales have picked up since the price more lagging behind by 70,000 lol. I can't imagine when the price gets closer to its competition and at least ONE big games drops. There are good things coming for the PS3.

There are now 6 million sellers on the PS3 with Fifa 08... Uncharted will be number 7! PS3 is catching up fast!

The split between the markets is fascinating. Hopefully with the release of MGS4 and a price cut, we'll see hardware doubling that of the Xbox 360. It needs to happen if Sony will catch up this year.

Equinoxe_7  +   2943d ago
These numbers are pretty decent.

Without many AAA titles, and the best yet to come, PS3 got a slow start but i believe it will change, Xbox360 is also doing well, and the Wii.

Actually I think 2009 will be a better year for Playstation 3 than 2008

Why...because, we still need Home, Little big planet, more games for gamers like me, who like Ico and Shadow of collosus, instead of MGS, GT, Killzone, Resistance.

The only platform game I got untill now is Ratchet and Clank:ToD

Sony you can do better, and I don't like waiting.
ip-student  +   2943d ago
2008 will be interesting
Hard to compare the first year of the 360 sales with the first year of PS3 sales - the 360 was basically sold out for most of the first year. In that regard, Sony did a better job and was not sold out as long.

The real question is what kind of sales are we going to get at the current prices. $300 or $400 is still pretty expensive. MS can more readily drop the price of the 360 than Sony can drop the price of the PS3. So the question in my mind is what effect the price differential will have as the PS3 starts to provide a complete game category.

But no matter who you are, you have to love the competition. Without it there is no way you would see the PS3 at $400 or the 360 at $350 with two games. I expect the arcade version of the 360 to be about $200 by the holiday season, with the real xbox 360 coming in at $250-$275. The PS3 will be at least $350, if not lower.

While the big names for the PS3 start to roll out, there is less of an advantage because some of the biggest names are cross-platform (GTA IV). So I think 2008 is going to be a very interesting year. I expect Sony will still be at least 4 million behind because right now Sony is only catching up worldwide by about 100k-200k a month. But unless MS does a serious price drop soon the gap will narrow.
etownone  +   2943d ago
Im guessing they are waiting for some special event like GDZ in Feb or the release of GTA4 for the price drop ..... but sucks that in over 2 years the best they came up with was a 50 buck price drop while the PS3 has had like 2 price drops within the first year.

Its at a point now, because of Blu-Rays victory, the PS3 is looking way more attractive now... and the 360 really needs to show a difference in price now. I mean an elite is more than a ps3?? i'm definitely a 360 owner/fan but if I was in the market now, i'd just get the ps3 since they are priced almost the same but at least comes with blu-ray.

MS should just drop all skus except the arcade, drop the arcade to $199 and start selling hard drives of different sizes at cheaper prices.
