VGChartz is reporting for Week Ending 19th January 2008, the American Chart was as follows:
Another week go's, another week the ps3 outsells the 360.
Also i notice the US gap is really begining to close
You're only stating what you see in this weeks VG chartz.
if you listen real careful you can hear a fanboi disagreeing.
Good news for Sony but this is nothing with the big b/r win and the games this year will see nothing but growth. Who knows they may even give the wii a run for its money.
I have both a PS3 and a 360, so I'm as far from fanboy as you can get. However, the PS3 is barely scrapping by with more sales which is hardly anything to celebrate about. The PS2 had 90% of the market share last generation. Sony will be LUCKY if they end up with 40% this time around. The 360 is doing great, but the Wii is slaughtering all. It'll be interesting to see what happens at the end of this cycle. But as long as Sony and MS keep making great games, I really couldn't care who "wins." It's REALLY nice not having to be a fanboy.
this week VG chartz estimates PS3 outsold 360 by 14k, so it's all good. Next week maybe it will 360 for the win. So now PS3 is screwed?
How can you live like?
If Burnout sells 360 then you're correct but I don't see that happening. On TV the Burnout commercial is a PS3 commercial so it's basically a tie. The big difference is DMC4 which will sell more PS3 in Europe and in Japan, so DMC4 will literally hold the PS3's lead until March where that lead increases with Blu-ray and MGS4. Also MLB08 the show is an N4G favorite that realeases the same time as MGS4. I see the PS3 outselling 360 weeks by week through this generation. The only game that might be trouble is Gears of War 2, but lots of 360 fans were left with a bad taste after buy Gears 1. Just listen to video game outsiders podcast. All 3 host bought the game blindly based on hype and neither of them liked the game.
Also remember that the big titles for PS3 for 2008 isn't even out. Expect to see PS3 shine very soon (may be as soon as DMC4)
DMC4 is like in the top 6 most anticipated games in Japan. It's only behind Dragon Quest, Resident Evil, Metal Gear, Gran turismo, and Final Fantasy.
Stop posting this garbage. VGChartz is only for the PS3 idiots to feel good about themselves until the NPD numbers hit.
PS3 is doing a bit better since the price dropped closer to 360.
Now all they need is $299 40GB and $449 80GB
match the $449, $349 and $279 sku's of XBOX 360.
What's Sony waiting for?
PS3 has some exclusives that I really want, but when? I expected Haze pretty soon. But delayed like always.
If I was on their board of decision makers, I would wait for the White Ceramic and MGS4 to come out right at the same time I made the price drop.
I would drop the console price with either the release of either GTA IV or MGS but simultaneously bundle those games with consoles selling it at the current retail price.
Theres no rush, i doubt MS will have a price drop before Sony does, and vice versa.
There won't be any 80G more. The only one in production is the 40G. So, yeah $299, that is - possibly soon.
None the less, if they want to connect to the PS2's success, Sony needs to double sales soon. Again, maybe an indication for a lower price. Outselling the 360 is nice, but nothing compare to previous sales.
can anybody tell me the NPd worldwide numbers for december? I'm serious.
And what makes vgcharts more or less accurate than npd? What makes those who say Vgcharts is not accurate ,...accurate? I'm serious.
Well besides that looks like all consoles are doing good and the ps3 is beating the xbox360.
NPD is North America only
They are always very close, but not exact to the dollar. So they are used as a good estimate.
They did it for december, google it.
vgchartz is REALLY accurate. there was a post on here before showing that for the most part it was within 1%. they pride themselves in their accuracy. they basically have ties w/ major retailers and get the numbers the same way NPD does
They don't even track $, only # sold.
All the markets clearly can not be added yet.
what POG counting on Japan to pull your box up?
VGChartz isn't an exact science. I imagine they use monthly sales trend data from retailers as well as calculated market growth for a huge part of their figures. They openly admitted they only have 1% of retailers giving them data, while NPD has around 60%. One hard spike or drop in sales would show that VG's numbers have been not much more than a lucky guess. How VG get's worldwide numbers cannot be very accurate either. To my knowledge there is no "NPD" in Europe, so there is no sales trend data. It would be interesting to find out how they get their european numbers.
Hum this must be a error, lol. Go PS3 Go PS3.
I seen a post saying Uncharted has sold 1 million copies, is if fake? or is VG wrong?.
360 beat ps2. wooow. Lol.
Wait, the ps3 outsells 360 in America??? It's starting to build up momentum!
This is worldwide totals. In North American 360 still sold more. You can see it.
EDIT: How can people be retarded enough to disgaree with me?
You can clearly see in North Amercian
Yeah no doubt the PS3 is building momentum but it'll be awhile before it passes the 360 in the US.
...what the f*** no it didnt re read the chart man wtf
u kno what would be the best, if wii won the war and the ps3 and 360 tied in 2nd with the EXACT NUMBER of units sold. That would solve everything, not one side feeling down that theyve lost... and either ps3 or 360 can say that there console is better or that theyve won the war.
leave your tree hugging ways out of here!!?!
lol i gave you an agree
It will never happen..There wont be a tie between the PS3 and 360..Xbots like it or not the PS3 will come in 2nd at least...
great news though for Sony..The ps3 is starting to outsell the 360..when more great games hit the shelves i expect sales to blast to the top..
I saw some idiots wasted 5 dollars on a gamecube
maybe they got the GC confused with the wii.
I feel sorry for them if they did.
$39 is hard to beat.lol
mann ill have to go pick one up cuz i love smash brosthers and i cant get a wii
Metal Gear Solid is Coming
Resistance Fall of Man 2
Folks you know wise people are buying the PS3, the exclusives are coming this year. You can enjoy current generation games now - Uncharted, Resistance, Motorstorm, Heavenly Sword, Unreal Tournament 3 and Warhawk. You can also enjoy the ports Call of Duty 4, Half Life 2 and upcoming Devil May Cry.
Watch your Bluray movies in high definition and enjoy the free PSN. Improvements are being made and its all FREE.
I love my PS3 along with the rumble Dualshock 3, 2008 will be the year we get more games to play starting with Metal Gear Solid.
I love how people refer to one or the other having "lost".
It's as if there will be no more consoles at the end of the Wii-PS3-360 era.
There is no "losing" in this business...only, well..business.
Sony and Nintendo is making money..How about the MIcrosoft?? seem like they have a chance to make miillion but screwed up by producing defective hardware..Losing 1 billion dollars on repair or more its not a good at all..
To be honest I rather see nintendo keep on winning cause that means sony will keep striving to be better and I will be a very happy ps3 gamer.
One things for sure Sony having to work at this generations console war has been nothing but good for us ps3 owners. Heres hoping the 360 comes back with a fixed sku lower price point and even more great game ;)
I can agree that having to fight for marketshare should put a fire under their a** next generation. But most people know that sony thought that they were going to crush everyone when the ps3 launched. That's why the ps3 ended up with a non-gaming centric CPU, and an over-priced in-house movie player. They were willing to shaft the majority of the market to make their movie format the standard, simply because they believed that their brand recognition was stronger than most peoples ability to think for themselves.
People are finally waking up and realising that their Xbox 360 and Wee are no match for PS3 in 08.
after the wii outsold the ps3 by 100k+ units again?
or how its going to take 2 years at this rate for ps3 to even catch up to 360 in sales?
or how its to the point that microsoft doesn't need to win anymore, they already cut out a big enough slice and momentum from the sony powerhouse that they can ride the sails till the next console?
good post V1c1ous
DS is constantly dominating the charts, its unbelievable.
Looks as though the PS3 is gonna start selling more than
X360 from now on for a while; and the Wii, well its just
the Wii what can I say.
Deny all you want but the fact is that the PS3 been outselling the 360 worldwide for quite a while now.
I don't even take VG numbers seriously.
They came close for PS3 last month and have been way off for the Wii and the other consoles for weeks before December.
You're happy because they guessed right for PS3 in December proving in you mind they're right every time. God only knows how good they're at tracking numbers overseas. If PS3 is outselling the 360 its nothing that warrents throwing a party over.
VGchatz were really accurate for the biggest month of sales (december)
, so i think they will get it fairly close for january as well.
a $400 console outselling a $279 console week after week has to be unsettling, huh POG?
Quiet awhile my a**, 2 monthes is a drop in the bucket. 360 has been outselling the ps3 worldwide for 23 monthes, that's quiet awhile.
In about 3 to 4 weeks, we should see the ps3 crack 10 million units worldwide.
Edit: Why did someone disagree with me? Why because I actually state what will happen in about 4 weeks? You are one sad little fanyboy that disagree with me.
ya their pretty close already I bet well see another 15 million sales at least this year.
you guys brag about the PS3 outselling the 360 for the last 8 to 10 weeks but what about when the 360 outsold the PS3 for the other 40 weeks. plus the 360 is out selling the PS3 in the region that matters THE MOST. the region that spends the most CASH!! you guys can have japan, well... no you cant that belongs to nintendo. we'll SHARE the U.K. an we'll keep the U.S. so just be happy with last place.
ewww. look at me im talking like a fanboy now!! man i got to get of this site,fanboyism must be a disease an im catching it!!
see what are you going to say on the 31week =)
31 weeks, 8 monthes? Did you know that if the ps3 started now, outselling the 360 by 650,000 units a month, it would be 12 monthes before the ps3 caught the 360. I'm thinking based on current sales you need to change your prediction to at least 336 weeks, or 6 years.
If you don't take VG Chartz numbers seriously then why are you reading the post? Obviously the numbers worried you enough for you to post a response denying the accuracy of the numbers.
Once the price drops again then VG Charts will go back to being worthless, watch!!!!.
And they'll be "close and accurate" for you, right?
...but Zack and Wiki had a pretty good week all things considered. The game is most likely at the point now where it is actually turning profit. We may see that sequel yet. :)
There are currently 120+ million PS2 owners worldwide and I'll be damned if less than half of those owners don't buy a PS3.
If you look at a week to week basis the ps3 is really catching up to the 360 in America. I really see the ps3 passing the 360 in america pretty soon.
Why do people keep saying selling at this rate it will take x number of months or years to catch up to 360. Am I the only one who realizes that with WW sales better than 360 already that each time a MAJOR franchise comes out those sales will increase 25,50,75 hell maybe even 400% again?
but in the big picture it has a long way to go.
Nice PS3 sales. If a price cut is true, it will do wonders for the PS3.
this rate PS#3 will never outsell the 360. Need to start selling 500K more than the 360 per month just to catch up.
according to your math that would happen in just over a year...
as of right now, the ps3 has to outsell the 360 by 134,615 consoles a week to catch up in 12 months.
not impossible, but highly unlikely in 12 months. the ps3 would have to outsell the 360 by 67,307 consoles a week to pass it in 24 months.
that is more likely to happen once NA is saturated with 360 and the rest of the world continues to not buy them.
don't people get tired of having the same conversations EVERY week?
I mean seriously, we could just copy and paste the comments and save everbody lots of typing...
It cost to manufacture a Wii,PS3 and 360 these days? Please mention different skus if you have a estimate of what they currently cost to manufacture.
PS3's are now $400 to make.
Wii's were $200 to make at launch, probably cheaper now.
DS costs like $2 to make ;p.
Not sure about the rest.
Sony continues to loose money on PS3 hoping for software sells. Microsoft on hardware more or less draw. Nintendo, ****, had got fantastic financial results.
