The Playstion 3 version of Devil May Cry 4 outsells the 360 version 5-1
Its obvious that this game was going to sell more copies on PS3 in Japan considering the ratio of PS3's to 360's is huge. Im actually surprised that the 360 version is doing as well as 5 - 1 to be honest what with there probably being at least 50 PS3's to every 360 thats out over there if not many more. We will see how the game sells in the rest of the world. I bet the ratios will be quite different! What do you think?
I expected DMC4 the PS3 version to sell better world wide..I got the DMC collection series on the Playstation Brand its obvious I am getting 4th installment of the game to add to it...
Yea, I prefer the PS3 and all... but this is hardly news worthy. The article acts as if the results could have been any different!
Actually, I believe the ratio is 10 PS3s to 1 360 over in Japan.
This is old news for anyone who did the math.
No surprise in Japan. I would guess PS3 version will outsell the 360 in Europe and will be close to it in the US.
In other news - the sky is blue.
Actually its kinda grey right now for the 360. I see a lot of rain in your future. PS3 FTW Back on topic: I have this game pre ordered as well, can't what to play it.
actually ps3 only recently ovetook 360 in europe, couple monhts ago, so if same amount of percentage buy the game the difference wouldnt be too great in ps3 favour
That DMC4 will sell better on the ps3 in the European regions as well as the Asian territories, but sell slightly less or equal to the 360 version in the US. The reason for this is because the ps3 already has a nice share of single player quality action titles, while I'd say the 360 does not. Now don't get me wrong. I loved dead rising, lost planet, kameo, Assassins Creed, and some of the others, but none of them have really been in the same vein (genre wise) as games like god of war, ninja gaiden, heavenly sword, or devil may cry if you kinda get what i'm saying. DMC4 on the other hand will most likely be one of the 360's best traditional action titles at this point and I feel US 360 owners will most likely scoop up more copies then ps3 owners because of this.
There are about 500-600k Xbox 360s in Japan, so there are somewhat 25-30 million PS3s also. My god, I hadn´t realized PS3 is so big in Japan...
is that a joke lol, not even 15mil ps3s sold world wide
Kausdt was being sarcastic as there should be 30 milion PS3 in Japan if the PS3 version of DMC should outsell the x360 version by 50:1 as some of you expected. According to VG the PS3 is at 1.9 mill and x360 is .6 mill. This is a ratio of about 4:1 at most so PS3 DMC version outselling the x360 version by 5:1 is actually better than expected.
thank you for clarification i never expected 1 to sell better then the other in percentage, maybey abit more sway to ps3 because it use to be sont exclusive lol now that i get it its actually quite funny
not bad for both consoles considering their respective userbase.Was expecting 20,000 for 360 and 100,000 for PS3, but i was wrong. is it out in the states?
It comes out on 2/5 in the states. I pre order :D
I pre ordered too :D I wish there would have been a pre order gift like in some other games :( its available the 2/5 but depending of the seller it might be an extra day before its available like with other games
wow, pretty deeep.... anyways 3-7... Patriots.
anyway Brady is getting cracked like a coke vile by the monstrous Giants defense.
Whoever gets the first big lucky break will win this one. No one will budge.
its cause there blitzing brady, he has to force the pass which the giants want to do.
And Giants WIN!!!! F**K the Patriots
if i had a ps3 i would most deffently get this for it insted of the 360.
obviously expected given the userbase for each platform... can't wait to get my copy.. 2 more days!!!
Figured as much, 2 more days and I disappear for a week.
you and me both brother. Things got slow at work so they told me I didn't have to work this week, so I'm going to get paid to sit around and play this game.
Yeah I get a week off college on friday so DMC 4 couldnt have come out at a better time (oh yeah it releases here in Europe on friday) It's a week of DMC 4 and Uncharted for me
WOW !! REALLY ??? THIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNEXPECTED AND TOTALLY SURPRISING NEWS ! ...no wait, it's not....
straight to the bank ha ha ha ha (c) tony yayo
still waiting for g unit shoot to kill
yea, pretty much everyone expected this.
is this even news ?
Something I noticed. Why is the 360 version in Europe cheaper?
A lot of duplicate stories today eh...
all you in here is sayin oh look at the user base compared to the 360s in japan, but when a 360 game outsells a ps3 game yall say oh you ps3 guys dont buy games just blu-ray movies, shutup it got outsold deal with it.
Thats exacly what the xbox fanboys say its funny cause now there using the excuse that 360 has a smaller fanbase in japan. bubble's+ Skaterboy Tell'Em
i was thinking the exact same thing, there are a lot of double standards these days
You can't be serious... PS3 user base is waaaay bigger than Xbox over there. Don't even need this article to know that the PS3 version outsold it. There is no double standard, just people with half a brain that can say... "Well duh!"
not surprising that the PS3 version sold more than the 360
This was given but 140k not bad.
For some reason buying the 360 version is cheaper than PS3. If the PS3 sales more than 360 with a "higher" price, then I will be suprised. Maybe sales from both consoles could convince Capcom that a next gen Monster Hunter isnt totally out of the question. I would rather have a multiplatform Monster Hunter than no Monster Hunter at all.
Knowing by now how 360 games sale better than the PS3 DMC4 will be no different. Just like Burnout Paradise we will see the 360 version outsell in both U.S and Europe.
Actually, in Japan, the two versions cost the same. And in the worldwide scheme, European and Australia sales count for a fraction, the areas where the PS3 version costs more.
oh cmon!, i want to see how DMC4 sales performs on the states on each console
Not really a surprise. US sales would be very interesting though.
when making RE5.
The main thing is who'll have their name on the commercials in the states. I remember seeing far more COD4 PS3 commercials when it came out. Same thing started to happen with Assassin's Creed but that was tied for the most part.
Same will happen with Gta world wide Dmc will out sell on x box world wide as well
Imo, Japan can kiss my American a*s. If your an American sony fanboy, don't ever admit it in public.
im an AMERICAN SONY fan....whats wrong with that? excuse me for buying a reliable system that hasnt broken on me like my 360 did. if anything you are an ignorant american who thinks his country is better than every other out there. yeah buddy youre a true patriot.
Please report Genuine's comments as offensive. Your contribution will give the N4G community hopes of having trash like him banned and never seen on N4G again. $niper
Its people like you that make me (and the rest of the world) glad we are not American. EDIT: Just so the many decent Americans understand, my comment is aimed at the idiotic minority that your country has the misfortune of having to accomodate,
pft when Vgcharts posts the numbers ill belive it i dont trust that
That's quite funny and a tad ironic considering the VGChartz numbers aren't entirely accurate either.
to be advertised as another platform's key title. i was surprised Sony didn't market burnout paradse since it was primmed on the PS3 and then on xox360... i'd say to make capcoms first PS3 outing more known, the better market it as they did with assassin's creed and COD4..... oh well in a feww more days i wont be here reading about it i'll be playing this game in all it's Dante glory
The PS3 version will continue to sell for at least a week at 50k + level , while the X360 will flat out on day 2, all the ppl who owns a X360 got the copy already due to lack of games on the system in Japan
Cant wait too see if it sold some consoles as well..which some people claim was going too happen...
Its only the first day, most software comapnies would be very happy with these sale figures. It'll take no time to pass one mill.
I going to wait and see how the U.S sales are going to be
Considering the install bases in Japan, how else could the sales have turned out? Just wait till the NA release, complete reversal.
Ya this was pretty much a no brainer but like someone said I'm actually impressed with the 360 #s . Now the question is, even though Turok sucks. To buy the Turok & DMC4 pckg for $89.99 from BestBuy or not to buy the Turok & DMC4 pkcg for $89.99 from BestBuy? That is the question.
Don't buy, its a mediocre game anyway. The fact its already bargain bin is proof enough.
Yeah haha this really isn't anything news worthy. What I would like to see is the ratio in Europe. You figure sales will be good on both consoles but will people choose familiarity with the Sony brand or branch off to the 360. Oh yeah F**K the Patriots. I live in Jersey and everyone is going crazy. And even though I'm a Broncos fan, I hate the Patriots so much that I was wildin out when they won.
lets be honest, this is a no-brainer and this article sums up everything totally.... http://blog.wired.com/games... 360 is going to have another stellar year period. In europe 360 will be sold out too.... Halo Wars will be huge in europe but I can think of another game too......I am going to buy quite a few games but you want to know what I love the most, hell yes halo wars. Its going to be TIGHT and we all love halo, and I think halo chronicles might come out.....but seriously, after call of duty 4 gears of war 2 and halo wars are gonna steal the spotlight........ Im not shocked to find alot of people who never heard of MGS4....all they can think about is GTA4 and that sort of thing......its going to be one intense year period, no matter what system you own......and I GUARANTEE there will be surprises.....triple guarantee it. LOTS of great games for 360 this year, thats impossible to deny now....but a few for the ps3 if you're into ps games.....and that's it JACK, I still think halo war/too human is going to win out....call it a gut feeling on my ticker ticker......oh yes. LETS GET READY TO RUUUUUUUUMBLE!!!!!!! FF13, Infinite Undiscovery release in 2009 not even close, middle of 2009 earliest but Alan Wake comes 2008. I predicted it.
Would you please type something new instead of cutting and pasting the same crap over and over.....I would remove a bubble if you had any left.
Man your living in a dream world. This year is going to be the year the PS3 CRUSHES the 360 Great games for 360 in 2008 ha DONT MAKE ME LAUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
dude totally sweet. first post!!
