PS3 continues to outsell the 360 as gamers wake up and realize PS3 is where the exclusives are at.

PSV = the PS3's portmachine, continues to struggle at an outrageous price point and lack of innovative titles. Make some innovative original games Sony and cut the price and people will buy your amazingly powerful hardware!

360 chugging along nicely thanks to stupid american moms buying it for Kinect.

Wii sales expectedly sliding of the cliff due to the impending Wii U and the fact that everyone and his mom has one sitting in the loft.

"Make some innovative original games Sony"
The new Medial Molecule game is coming, and I think it really looks impressive and innovative. Then there is AC, Killzone, Little Big Planet and more to come.

"everyone and his mom has one sitting in the loft."
Is that really necessary? Maybe this kind of behavior explains why you only have 1 bubble.

Unfortunately, that's how it works here.

The only real "original" game is Tearaway... AC, Killzone and LBP are really just PS3 games with Vita specific modes... Sony needs more IPs like Gravity Rush and Tearaway... I understand few new IPs will come out for the PS3 as studios will wait for the PS4 but they should have had several new IPs for the Vita since they knew they were going against the 3DS... and Nintendo has domintated the handheld market since Gameboy came out

You epitomize what is wrong with this place, you spout off with nonsense and get agrees.

Also, I'm not an American mom, or stupid, but I own a Kinect.
pandaboy  +   888d ago
are you sure you're not stupid? :)

There is only one exclusive that matters this year and its on the 360.

And those smart american moms know it.

Halo 4 looks pretty sweet, butyou're crazy if you think All Stars doesn't matter.

Only teens look forward to halo 4..

I thought the psp was out selling the vita 2-1 .that story was a lie

This is VGChartz though. It's estimates, not factual numbers.
feeter  +   887d ago
been following Vitas sales and they have been very accurate so far
boybato  +   888d ago
its probably in japan.
Nes_Daze  +   888d ago
Although an estimate, it's probably correct as far as who's selling more worldwide. I personally don't care for sales as long as they don't drop to the point where the console maker decides to leave the industry, and hopefully, no company leaves the industry, because they all have something great to add to it. (Hopefully Apple never enters it).

Isn't it amazing a year ago or longer, when the 360 sales were through the roof, vgchatz was unreliable, now that the PS3 is selling a little better, the numbers are reliable, gotta love PS3 fanboys, looking for anything to hold onto, to try and justify them buying a console of a company, that in 5 yrs will not be around.

^ if that isn't the truth, I don't know what is.
ipe  +   888d ago
Lol another analyst.

How do u justify your halobox?
It got halo?
CommonSenseGamer  +   888d ago
I wonder, how might you think differently if it were announced that the Halo franchise was coming to the Vita.

Halo is a solid franchise which is why it sells well.
Nes_Daze  +   888d ago
I've always took vgcharts with a grain of salt, but they're not far from the truth all the time. I don't know what many PS3 fanboys you see above you that claim it's reliable, or maybe it's just that you're another whiny xbox360 fanboy.
Ben_Grimm  +   888d ago
From what I've been told VGCartz is ran by a banned forum member who was a hardcore 360 fan.

Seriously this person (who will remain nameless) ranted that VGChartz should not be trusted because of this.
Hicken  +   888d ago
Actually, what was amazing was how VGChartz had the 360 in the lead for all those years where the PS3 was leading. At the end of each year, VGCartz would be drastically off from official numbers, particularly for the PS3.

They're still unreliable, but at least it seems they've started to make their guestimates more in line with what's actually happening.

Wow-the 3DS xl(or ll) is really pushing sales into the stratosphere! I'm curious to see how much higher that number will go with the xl's release in the Americas..

Same old arguments again!! Same time next week?
3-4-5  +   888d ago
Wii Sports....the first one.....From 2006....sold more this week than NCAA 13..

That says all we need to know about which is the more quality game.

That...EA....is what happens when you just re-title last years game and touch up a few minor things.

Still mind blowing that wii sports has sold 80,0000,000 copies though.....that is just unheard of.
ronin4life  +   888d ago
Remember: wii sports was originally free...
I don't know how this affects your argument, as I am unsure if you are commenting on stand alone software or not...^_^;;
3-4-5  +   888d ago
Hmmm..guess I never thought of that.

I was just commenting on how many units of that game they sold.

The 2nd Wii sports game, Wii Sports Resort sold 30,000,000.

Was that packaged with the Wii at a later date as well or did this just sell this good because of the first games success ?

OMG OMG OMG the PS3 IS Unbeteable
