Final Score

PS3 163,990
360 145,030

Devil May Cry 4 sales over 2 weeks

PS3 463,562
360 399,262

Another week for PS3. Where are the people who were saying that Devil May Cry 4 pushed 360 consoles?

Of all the comments I've heard, that's what stuck with me the most. Yesterday people were saying that Devil May Cry 4 had a bigger impact for 360.

cmrbe3777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

and this proves it. The previous week the gap was about 45K. This week is its 19K. This is just taking into account the release of DMC4 only. Glad to see the PS3 version of DMC4 outsell the x360 version.

Edit: Ok i see your point. Your point is the x360 sold lower than expected last week so this week's jump is just the x360 numbers going back up to where it normally sells in NA and not so much the impact o DMC4?. I see your logic but it could be both you know.

LightningPS33777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

360 had a weird slump that week.(Maybe due to shortages) And now it's back to normal.

What were the sales like the week before that weird 45k difference?

"Another week for the PS3"

Another week that the little Xbox fanboy, ioi, at vgchartz pulled numbers straight out of fanboy fantasyland.

Another week that teh little Xbox fanboy, ioi, at vgchartz massaged his made up numbers to once magically keep worldwide sales 'neck and neck' between the PS3 and 360.

Another week that the little Xbox fanboy, ioi, at vgchartz went on a tempertantrum slashing PS3 worldwide sales figures and bumping up 360 numbers as the PS3 worldwide sales numbers continue to grow and grow

How many news stories have to come out showing what a complete joke the site is?

Let's put it into perspective just how far out in Xbox fantasyland vgchartz is just from today's news. They were, shockingly!, underreporting PS3 sales in the UK by some 150k. Just that one European country that anyone who was serious about getting reliable and up to date data could have easily just have subscribed to CharTrack.

Even now when faced with real UK numbers the Xbox fanboys at vgchartz are in a frenzy doing damage control. It looks like their answer to the real UK numbers was to simply average their own Xbox fantasyland numbers and the real numbers. Pathetic.

It's time for this site to go away. It has no place in any serious console market discussion - no matter how much Xbox fans are hearted by the site's made up numbers.

LightningPS33777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

But VG chartz is all we have to track worldwide sales on a weekly basis. So what else can we do?

Either play the game or get out.

power of Green 3777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

Not sure what you're going on about.

No one on the 360 side trusts VGC.
PS3 fans use VGC as an took for propaganda reasons.

Just because a SCE-UK has released numbers that prove VGC is wrong doesn't mean the same thing wouldn't happen to 360 numbers if a better tracking system was in place for the 360 overseas. ChartTrack needs to show what they've revealed lol


Packet you're crazy VGCs has been under tracking the 360 for months.

Packet3777d ago

"But VG chartz is all we have to track worldwide sales on a weekly basis."

There is no weekly tracking. It's just some kids making numbers up.

The problem is the guy who run the site is an Xbox fanboy. He has been long since banned for putting out bogus number on forums all over the Net.

His game is this:

* Inflate 360 numbers in every area where there is the least amount of public data - usually European countries

* Inflate 360 numbers in every estimate since there is nothing to contradict the bogus numbers. Gives the 360 lots of free press with news items like this one so you get a constant stream good sales news for the 360 that is only briefly interrupted once a month by the real sales data

* Constantly tweak the worldwide sales numbers - PS3 down, 360 up - as far as he thinks he can get away with and still leave a margin of plausibility. These usually happen as the PS3 approaches some milestone and suddenly the little punk goes on a tempertantrum and the PS3 mysteriously has a few hundred thousand less sales worldwide.

In the end it won't matter one bit other than a whole bunch of people will end up writing all sorts of 'wow, didn't know the PS3 was doing so well' or 'wow, Sony really turned sales around' comments and stories because they waste their time reading some little Xbox fanboys fantasyland sales numbers.

"No one on the 360 side trusts VGC.

When did this happen? Before, the 360 hardcores used to resort to VG for insane inflation of numbers... now the PS3 users do? I don't really think that is the case. Besides, correct me if I am wrong... but doesn't this site have a profound reputation of having inflated 360 hardware numbers and underrated PS3 hardware figures?

I never liked the site and I know a ridiculous amount of the Playstation hardcores didn't and still don't as well. I do agree that it is a bad reference, but also it is one that at least gives some insight into how things are looking for the industry (and its subdivisions). As long as people don't take it as exact then it's fine.

Hey, it's better than a horde of analysts at least.


Ju3777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

Well, according to the latest VG chartz, UK all of a sudden shows PS3 ahead of 360. That was not the case 2 days ago.

But anyhow, everybody knows, that VGCharts are no serious numbers, but they show trends at least. And that's fun to talk about, isn't it?

BTW, to the original poster. Japanese DMC4 numbers are not yet included. Expect the gap to grow.

wiizy3777d ago

now fanboys and haters would have us believe the wii was a fad and this and that......but wii is on top and there is no stopping in site.. as a matter of fact wii may end up selling more then it did last year once wii fit , smash and mario kart comes out ..not to mention good third party titles....fanboys can keep crying their eyes out.

PSWe603777d ago

name all of the 3rd party games...the good ones

titntin3777d ago

Well - I can't dispute that the wii continues to dominate sales.

But sales have never been and indicator of quality mechandise to me. If it were, then I'd have to acknowledge 'take that' to be a musically talented band because of the amount of records they sell, rather than the lame well marketed bunch of talentless geeks they actually are.

Take a motoring example: A car like a Fiat Panda will sell 1000's of times more units each year than a ferrari, but as a driver, its the farrari thats the real deal!
That the Wii continues to blindly sell to grandma's kids and girls who have never played a game before is to applauded, but it still fails to stisfy any real gamer I have ever met. I applaud their ability to create a new market and make a forune, but for me, the format has been a dismal failure - and no figures will ever change that.

Bazookajoe_833777d ago

Lol, that was realy funny =)

desolationstorm3777d ago

The Wii does continously do well and I think people are way to focused on saying its just parents that ar buying it.

Thats BS I agree that the young and the old are contributing to it being so hard to find, but gamers are picking it up as more and mroe better games are coming to it.

Smash is gonna be a success as is wii fit that much you can state as fact. Though more and mroe 3rd parties are getting decent to good games out for it. Lets leave out the blantent shovelware, because all of a sudden its the big thing now that its not the ps2?
3rd party games
RE4 Wii edition
Zack and Wiki
No More Heroes
Madden 07
Trama Center 1 or 2

I for one am looking forward to Okami and anyone thats like its another port well no one bought the game the last time, I look forward to owning this game especially at the $30 tag. I for one dont mind ports with effort put into them because not everyone owned a ps2, not to mention they come to the wii with better controls.

Stupid console war stubborness never changes just their arguments. Its stupid let it go oh the 360 dies, the wii is for kids, wii has no good games, the ps3 is a flop, the ps3 has no good games, the wii has sh!t graphics so on and so forth. Go make out with your favorite console and see if you realize how stupid it is to act like its a godsend. Its a toy their all toys enjoy them.

This week was a much closer margin between PS3 and 360. I really wonder if the PS3 will separate itself from the 360 later this year or if it will be close all the way through. My guess is Ps3 numbers will show a larger margin around September but I could be wrong.

I also wonder what influence GTA4 will have on both consoles?

Cyrus3653777d ago

LAst week the gap was roughly 40 K, this week, it's about 18 K...

LightningPS33777d ago

Where 360 outsold PS3 by only 12k in North American.

This week it's back to normal. The way it has been for all the weeks prior.

SWORDF1SH3777d ago

but its not back to normal. japan numbers are way lower than normal which doesnt help the ps3 figures. things doesnt always just revolve around america

OC Shock Value3777d ago

Japanese numbers for PS3 are low because BRAWL is Destroying all that is gaming.. Even other Wii games

OgTheClever3777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

It's good to see that vgchartz updated UK PS3 numbers by around 100k. I suppose this is a step in the right direction, even if there is probably a 1 million+ shortfall on the real worldwide numbers.
