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 vgchartz.com 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.
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.
expect this to change onto PS3s Favor against the 360 while the Wii laughs all the way after the JP sales charts release
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?
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.
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 ^^
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..
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.
so uh, the ps3 is selling more software than the 360... didnt see that one coming
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.
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
No one knows how much PS3 sold last week. lol
sony's sales are weak.
This is saying PS3 outsold the 360(w/JAPAN)
in HARDWARE and SOFTWARE.
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.
Finally, a 360 fanboy who actually agrees that VG Chartz is bullsh*t.
Yeah, and PoG, I have a waaay funny picture (it's not an attack on you, just humour, and I'm not the author), I promise you'll like it mate :)
Still ass hurt over yesterday huh!.
Stalking me with personal attacks. lol
Go get some help take it easy man.
Need to spend less time attacking me(chasing me around this site) and more time working out you mental health issues.
It's not a personal attack, mate, just humour.
Some guy with an avatar of a man with two fried eggs on his face posted it, and I laughed really hard.
If you want, i'll remove you from it and replace it with Zhuk, because you're really not that bad compared to the rest of them :)
And no, I don't stalk you, lol.
See? Someone agreed! We're all starting to like you :D
The picture is hilarious. I think power of green doesn't know what funny is "yet".
Lol, obviously not. he seems to think i'm a hardcore PS3 fanboy who stalks 360 fans on n4g and "personally attack" them.
At least everyone else gets the joke.
heheheh the pic is gold..
pic is great but take out jason (cool guy) and replace him with GITPWNED- that guy is the #1 stupid asshole with no valid points what so ever
I laugh everytime I see that picture. Freakin hilarious. Good humor.
if you don't think that pic is funny...you are most likely a die hard 360 fanboy...and interestingly enough are most likely included in that picture...
Vgcharts does'nt screw that up.
dang wii is definetely the bigest new console sold last year up to recently cause most who playing the wii are senior citizens and kids few are teens and adults then on ps3 and 360 console just the adults and teens few kids the SC they found it way to complicated to play. well dont underestimate the little ones. but i still like my ps3 and 360.
VG chartz is garbage.
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)
ITS INNACURATE AND HATES CONSOLES THAT ARE NOT 360!
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
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
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.
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?
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.
where is TANOD/NASIM/SHMEE?
but anyway, why would he have to come if the ps3 is still outselling the 360. unless you want him to brag.....................
he will come when they add Japan stats in there. Just be patient, I'm sure he will and I think you are not going to like it.
you will soon be taken completely over by the darkside; completely inevitable. Don't fight the feeling. At least you can watch your overhyped claim-to-fame-game "played" on ESPN. That's gotta count for something, right? lol
Sony PlayStations = Kings of Consoles
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.
POG IS GINGER NERD OMFG!
:) :0 :) :)
And the mart is an old man. Ouch. Stay off the booze with a gut like that, remember belly's gonna get ya.
so how many unit has the ps3 shipped worldwide now including all countrys 9.2 mill?
o and ps PoG get some prozack and hair die
mass effect @ the bottom
Sweet man, PS3 sales have picked up since the price cut...no 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.
If you care to look again, you will see they havent added the american software totals for week ending jan 12th yet
Someone actually bought GC's still? I can understand if one gets them to replace a broken one.. or as a cottage machine if you have library from before.. :/
I know thats the real mystery of these posts. lol Where do you go to get a new gamecube?
Apparently some places have them still and uninformed parents are buying them to their kids... *shudder* that purple one was especially hideous! Black's the way to go, if any...
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.
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.
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.
Glad to see uncharted doing good.. Thats all i have to say.. Peace out..
nice to see Uncharted in the top 20. It deserves it. I wish Ratchet was selling better though.
as usual nintendo is on top.. haters can go cry to their mama or sony or microsoft for another year..
It supposed to be the weakest time of the year for sales and the 360 looks to hit 500k this month.
Last week Global sales at:
xbox 360 = 207k
PS3 = 281k
Approx sales including Japan (using last week Japan sales as an approximation)
(Last week the sales in Japan, xbox 360 = 12k, the PS3 = 74K)
xbox 360: 128k + 12k = 140k
PS3: 111k + 74k = 185k
There are countries outside of the USA you know, global sales are what counts. So, its, "Check to Sony"
And the Wii is beating both Microsoft and Sony in hardware sales, so I guess its actually "Checkmate" to Nintendo, to use your terminology.
Note: Again, someone hits disagree (? i wonder who, hmmm) rather than putting up a counter argument, some people here are just pathetic.
