VGChartz reports for the week ending January 12th, 2008, Console sales were as follows:
with Japan, PS3 is STILL outselling Xbox 360. Im not surprised. I heard this for the 4th time this month.
The PS3 could have a 70,000 or 80,000 unit lead this week when the Japan data comes out. That would mean the gap is getting wider because last week it was a less than 60,000 unit lead. The 360 will be 3rd place this generation it's inevitable.
the japan data has come out...
Worldwide Chart for Week Ending 12th January 2008 With >>>Japan # included.<<<<
This data, includes the Japan #. ;)
I miss the xmas sales, oh well, back to reality
I miss em too.
But lets see if the GTA4/MSG4 combo in the coming months cant surpass it.
If the PS3 games hold the release dates they have now it's set up for a perfect spring and fall.
Not likely Masterg simply because a lot of the casual gamers are not in the market at the time. It will be a wonderful few months but it simply wont touch the numbers of Christmas simply because of less marketing, especialy considering you had one game in Sept. break every entertainment record to date. Having that happen less than a year down the road would be straight out far fetched.
I'm sure, MSoft, Sony, and Nintendo miss them christmas Sales as well!
I hope we see some impresive numbers once the big games start to hit the one i am most intrigued about is mgs4 as its the only game i have heard a lot of people are waiting for to get the ps3.
What the big deal with "catching up" or "being #1"? as long as it gets the games and does what i want i dont care and nor should anyone who isnt directly effected by they're sales.
When i buy any hardware i dont buy purely on the highest seller... do you?
i dont mean to rant, but i simply cant get my head around why "gamers" care so much about sales figures. Go achieve for yourself.
To answer the Douche above. The reason why we should care is stated in your very comment, the games we want. If our preferred console has lower sales than the next then it is that much likely to get passed up when a developer decides to make a game.
In other words, if they think they can make more money by going exclusive with another console then there's a good chance they will, so THATS good enough reason for me to want the PS3 to catchup. Install base means something, more than reliability apparently
12 thousand now.
Also VG charts could have easily over counted either way or under counted(my bet is under counted the 360 and over guessing PS3 demand due to hype and news of the DVD market etc). Its safe to say that the consoles are actually selling the same and PS3 is going to have to be given away for it to catch up in one year.
fact that they are at least selling on par with one another is something itself.
stop tryin to tart up the sales to make it look better for the xbox. the reason the gap is reduced is because the overal sales of the consoles are reduced. take a look at simple maths.
say if the ps3 sold 150 consoles and the xbox sold 100. thats 250 shares with the ps3 sellin 50 more.
100(total %)/250(number of total console) x 150 (numder of ps3's) = 60. so the 60% of the consoles sold in ps3's favour. and 40% to xbox
now look what can happen when sales of the consoles drop.
so say the next week 50 xboxs were sold and 75 ps3's sold. that a a total of 125 shares with the ps3 only sellin 25 more than the xbox but also a drop of 25 from last week. but when we do the math again
100(total %)/125(number of consoles) x 75 (number of ps3's) = 60. so thats still 60% of the sales for the ps3 and 40% sales to the xboxeven the xbox closed the gap down 25 for the previous week.
so going around sayin "the gaps now down to 12k" is jus stupid. we all kno you like f**kin the xbox's usb port. the funny thing is your are so far up ms's ass, big billy as now given you 2 red rings. one for your xbox and one from f**kin you up the a**. i like the xbox, i think its got good games but i hate ms and i hate idiots like you.
lol @ swordf1sh
well he isnt as fanboyish as he use to be,
i reckon he is slowly gonna start coming to the darkside
Power of Xbot in 2007: The PS3 is a failure and will never beat the Xbo 360.
In Christmas 2007:(He said nothing because he was hiding with theMart or just saying stupid crap no one remembers....by the Way the PS3, PS2 and PSP beat the Flop60.)
In the FIRST month on 2008: The PS3 "only" beat the Xbox by 12,000 this WEEK(which it will outsell it by more this was a smaller week)...which equals over 50,000 this month
By Christmas 2008: Still getting Owned.
By 2009: Getting Pwned even worse.
By 2010: Getting anally Butt raped.
"big billy as now given you 2 red rings. one for your xbox and one from f**kin you up the a**."
Now that just blew me up! :D LOL
PS3 outsold 360 last week worldwide by 80 K or so, this week, it's under 15 K.
So in the first 2 weeks of Jan, they have outsold 360,by 90K+...
I'd like to see VG Charts include RMA numbers as well
Original working units vs. refurbs in the field
well I know sony is advertising the crap outa the ps3 right now. Microsoft should do the same and kick up a notch by having a 100 dollar price cut. This should make the sales kick start again. 300k - 400 k a month is not bad is it ?
Dissagreeing won't change the fact that the PS3 lead dropped 65 thousand in a week and still dropping.
Once NPD does the North American numbers we'll have to assume and adjust for the markets NPD does not cover.
You tell me to relax? I'm not the one so wraped up in showing the world PS3 sales are above the 360 I'm posting every number's listing I can find. LOL.
You're not even waiting for the your Worldwide sales numbers posts to have all the markets added before you take the news and run with it. lol
Telling me to relax while your posting anything you can get before its ready.
Then you go on to bring up last weeks numbers to spite what I was saying your response was the opisite of my point., my comments were about the shinking lead PS3 had over the 360 due to 3 price-cuts in one year and it being XMAS.
I'm sure VGChartz numbers are off, no one is saying it isn't. Maybe they are under-reporting 360 sales.
Just like now (PROVEN) they under-reported PS3 sales in france, where PS3 are almost equal to lifetime sales of 360 in France, yet on VGChartz, they list PS3 with half the sales (500 K for 360, 250 K for PS3).
Chill it pog ;)
power of green i agree come ony dinobeyond give me your [email protected]
cleanse your brain of spyware...whatever you just said made absolutely zero sense...
sorry i don't speak tard! Translation anyone?!
The numbers are probably so radically different all of a sudden because VG-charts has to be held accountable round the time NPD does NA so they're more carful and realistic or the PS3 is just really dropping its lead of tens of thousands a week.
Doing my best how?, paying people to not buy as many PS3's so 360 will win?.
I don't doubt PS3 is here to stay, stay in 3rd place that is.
Enjoy your PS3
Movie watching wo0t:
Your doing your best, but it won't change anything, PS3 is here to stay, enjoy your Xbox360
Home and Little big planet :)
POG, I don't have a blu movie yet, but I have 8 games, but I will get a movie in feb, Ratatouile, Disney I like, I like.
Wow Green with Envy, you're in full blown control damage today. Wah Wah Wah VG are accurate bla bla bla, the sales drop off. Who cares. Its January, or hadn't you noticed? Of coarse the gap is closer, the sales are smaller.
And naturally PS3 numbers are too high and Xbox too low according to you even though traditionally they've been the other way around.
The bottomline is back when your precious Halo came out XB was outselling by double. Not only has PS3 cut into that, its passed XB monthly sales and you've been edgy ever since. The sooner you learn to deal with the fact its only going to get worse this year the better for all of us.
And dont bother replying that its only a few thousand in front. The point is before it was nothing and its the slowest month of the year. I'd be more concerned XB is only ahead in one or two countries out of hundred and you'll lose them soon enough. One rock wont stand alone against the beating waves and its gonna be funny when it crumbles.
You act like anyone actually reads your posts lol. They just thumb you down without even knowing what you wrote because you truly are a brainless 360 fanboy.
oh i forgot ps3 on this site gets all the great news and yet its the crappist console ive brought even ps2 was better
I don't know if the Xbox360 is crap, I don't have it, but I have heard about RROD...
you guys won't let go, it's a good thing 360 had the RROD otherwise it seems sony fans would have nothing to pick on.
seriously, why can't you just enjoy your consoles and let go...
Yes, I know. I know. Uncharted bombed again - woot - on top of the PS3 SW charts. So much to that.
A pity, Epic missed the holidays, but UT3 is pretty much on par with AC, and that sold pretty good over that time. I'm curious how it'll do when available in Europe.
You are RETARDED. Over 830k in less than 2 months? Your just jealous. Uncharted outshines everything 360 has to offer. It's part of the reason why that halo box is getting outsold weekly. I wonder what yearly sales will be? A sequel is in the making as well. You bots make it up as you go.
He's just kidding. Apparently sarcasm has a hard time shining through a keyboard. Seriously, look at his avatar.
You guys do get WAY too defensive sometimes.
and i bet he got the disagrees from ps3 fanboys
It's nice to see the PlayStation 3 ahead but Sony need a much bigger gap than that, and for such a gap to remain consistent throughout the year.
This numbers don't make sense at all... when the worldwide numbers were released excluding Japan, PS3 was almost on bar w/ 360. Now adding Japan and PS3 is outselling 360 by only 13k????? What the hick, its either that PS3 sold horrible in Japan (which never happened before and its illogical) or 360 is suddenly like hot cake in Japan, which also doesn't make sense... These numbers are wrong..
your right the ps3 has always sold around 50k+ a week in japan why would it stop now?
VGchartz are inaccurate- but its the best we have at the moment for a WW report
WTF are you smoking - PS3 always selling 50K a week ?? How come there is only 1.8 mil of them sold in japan to this date ?? According to your math if it was selling 50K a week it would be over 3 mil know...
comon POG, you have one bubble left to talk in about this topic, comon waste it, that way we dont have to listen to you about this today.
HA HA HA HA HA HA
Wheres the chart where it shows customers on their 5th 360, sitting at home unsuccessfully trying to logon to XBox Live for hours.
I believe the guy who handled the PS3 servers for COD4 was supposed to handle it...
360 fans on this site always say the PS3 is failure
soon comes the worldwide weekly sells and then it's PS3 >360
just deal with it
You have poor comprehension skills no one doubts accourding to VG-charts PS3 is selling more consoles.
Point out the shrinking lead PS3 has been enjoying. Using me to talk you pro PS3 bullshit. lol
Xbox360 is the best no no no Wii is the best maybe maybe maybe
Playstation 3 is the best yes yes yes
even without MGS4, KZ2, R2, LBP, GT5, FFXIII, GoW3 available on the market. =)
EDIT: LOL, i guess some bots still can`t stand FACTS! =)) well, as usual, nothing new here. :)
Don't you buy the console before the game you want comes out, so technically people are buying them in anticipation. Lets hope Super Smash Bros doesn't hurt your numbers a wii bit q:
since I posted anything here(been playing alot of mass effect cod4 and drakes btw why does everyone go on about the graphics for drake and dont mention what a great job they did on the characters in that game?). As for the sales you really should wait till the end of the week with vg charts cause there are always adjusting as they get more data in. As for ww sales anything less than 50k no one can claim a win cause there is just to much room for error. From the sales we have seen over xmas and the first 2 weeks of jan we can say that the ps3 sales have increased to keep level with the 360 which is a good job I think for both consoles. Why both well the ps3 price cut advertising blitz looked like it worked well for them. MS have kept there pirce?(which is still kind of high for a lot of gamers) for a long time with only a small cut of $50 which leaves them open for a nice cut this year to counter sonys "big guns". All in all thunmbs up for 2 really good consoles.
the ps3 is doing really well to keep up with the 360, just 6 months ago the ps3 was being outsold by quite alot, now its beating the 360 by 10 or so thousand or keeping on par with them, really sony has turned the ps3 right around, and really that is one amazing thing considering they havent released any of there great games like mgs4 ff13, gow3, gt5, and others. While the 360 has released big games over and over, really the 360 is lagging abit if you think about it, with all those great game.
You know... If there is going to be a time when PS3 really outsells the 360 is when MGS:4 is released... I think we are going to see a spike in the sales curve..
Is how someone can call last year anything but a huge win for the sony camp. The year end sales of the PS3 (not including 3 months of europe) were greater than either year for the Xbox360. If you compare first year numbers the PS3 sold more units in spite of the following: 360 had NO competition its first year, 360 had a larger list of quality titles by a long shot, tons of bad sony press, poor third party ports, and no known games( did i mention it was way too expensive).
Where could they possibly go from here but up with what appears to be an amazing software line-up. I think MicroSoft is in trouble this year, you know why I think that? Because I just got a brand new elite, Halo3, and 2 free years of XBL all because of where I work. If they weren't trying to bias me, why would then send 600 bucks worth of swag.
Honestly though I hope both systems have amazing years, where the gap between them is narrow. Competition is great, and will lead to nothing but good games.
Your right, it's a wonder that Playstation 3 still exist.
bujuja mujabuhamu jaja yes.
Its gonna take forever for Sony to catch up if things carry on like this.I think Micro did a very good move with the 360 one year earlier than the PS3 , thankx to that they are crushing the PS3 in the most important market and are actually keeping up with the all mighty playsation
Though ther are in front on the 360 I think the PS3 is in a way a failure.How an planet earth did they do to not take advantage of the dominance they had with the PS2.
till MGS4, KZ2, R2, LBP, GT5, FFXIII, GoW3 are released.
because after these games will be available on the market, people will look at you like at a madman or some kind cloun. =))
lachance, I hope your gaming skills are better than your trash talking skills.
the ps3 is moving at about the same speed as the ps2 was at this point in it`s lifetime.
ps3 keeps picking up.
360 keeps slowing down.
by this time next year the ps3 will be outselling 360 by 50-100,000 a week like it`s little brother.
when ALL of the games Crazzyman mentioned are avaible to buy at the same time for new owners, it will create a serious gap inbetween the 2 systems.
are going back to normal Wii 1st, 360 2nd, PS#3 3rd HA HA HA HA HA
Edit : @ below I wrote going back to normal don't worry it will be like that. PS#3 still in 3rd place.
Plus VG chartz is trash. Disappointed that PS#3 didn't sell 1.2 million is the U.S. like Sony claimed it did?
read first type second.
ah yes.. even in the lowest selling month of the year, the ps3 is still outselling the 360 worldwide.. and at a considerable higher entry price point. Now this is the only vgcharts post that should be allowed on a weekly basis.. no more of each particular region getting their own submission, even though the 360 fans will have nothing to harp about because they get pounded worldwide regularly now.
i think everyone is forgetting no new games on either console for the last 2 weeks i am sure that will affect console sales
and my family are in retail and jan-march are really poor months for sales in the UK everyone is paying for xmas lol
who really cares none of this matters until fall of 08 anyway so back to reality fanboys and bots
A piddling 13K ps3 beats xbox 360...good for them....I laugh when some people say devil may cry for ps3 will sell some consoles....lets be honest here..if unreal tournament 3 didnt sell some consoles...what chance does devil may cry have in japan where they are giving up on next gen consoles and going for the wii/ds route...even the ps2 beat the ps3 this month....if I was a ps3 supporter i would be a idiot and type "PWNED" as well since you cant comment on terrible software sales....
