Were they giving away free DSs on a black friday or what?

Lol I have no idea. Funny the 360 and PS3 sold more than the new Wii U especially 360 which nearlly doubled the Wii U sales.

@Marcus_Fenix, yeah it's very funny how 360 and PS3 sold more than Wii U considering there were more 360/PS3s available. Wii U sales literally couldn't have been better.

Also, hot dog, didn't think people were going for the DS anymore, with the 3DS out. Crazy. Also great numbers all around. Glad to see the Vita shooting up again, wonder which bundle sold more..I hope it was the AC bundle. I would love for Ubi to make more ACs for Vita.

You should do a little fact checking of your own before you try to fact check someone else. Microsoft sold 750,000 DURING the week of Black Friday. That was not a sell of just the one day.
The numbers you're quoting are from Last year but nice try buddy. Read this article to catch yourself up
Ps3 was the only system the had a Year-over-year gain this black friday.
Xbox360 sold 750,000 (still impressive) DURING the week of black friday. Ps3 sold 525,000 and Wii U sold 400,000. What people didn't know is that launch week for the Wii U, US was only had 400k allocated (set aside). So it makes sense that it only sold that much given it's limited supply.

Those numbers you're posting are from last year. Xbox360 didn't not see a Year-over-Year gain. you provide one source that's says 900k, I provide three sources saying 750k and one source saying your numbers are from last year.
Let me know if those numbers look familiar but the date says Nov 29th 2011

They have it totally wrong on their site apparently. Usually they are reliable so the only thing I have to say is.

Xbox 360 sold 750,000 units during the week of Black Friday.

Feel better?
donman1  +   1170d ago
Microsoft officially own their home base (USA). They get the lion share of their sales here as compared the other regions where Sony PS3 dominates. So with their second generation consoles they know own home base similar to how Nintendo this generation own the Japan market.

Good job Microsoft. The question now is can Xbox720 give them the edge to own the european regions. Japan is still a market space I do not see Microsoft having much success in.

No worries, those numbers are shipped, and they did the same mistake with MS when they announced they had passed 70M at the end of september, yet at october 10, VGC still showed 360 sales at 69M.
It all evens out

fabod86  +   1170d ago
i disagree... if they don't update their numbers with shipped data how can the 360 numbers be like that? follow me, microsoft announced 750k 360 sold on the black friday and vgchartz has them at 807k for the week. 57k sold during the rest of the week seams logic considering that i don't think that a lot of people bought it out from the discounts of the black friday.
sony reported 525k ps3 sold on that single day and that all the discounted bundles were soldout in few hours, how can be the numbers of an entire week be even lower than a single day report? in conclusion, 360 data seams on par with the microsoft report the ps3 ones not. i call it common sense. ;)

What the hell is going on with these numbers
rainslacker  +   1169d ago
It's vgchartz. They're terribly inaccurate sales predictions and not any actual market data. They undershoot the Vita by 40K, and the PS3 by over 100K. They overshot the Xbox by about 60K (not positive on this, can't remember the number MS gave out, but wasn't that high).

For those that want to disagree, that's from the respective companies own reports on their weekend sales.
TheLyonKing  +   1170d ago
Wow 360 almost double that of ps3 and those percentage changes are huge for all of them.

360 clearly has America by the throat just like Sony has Japan it will be interesting to see Europe.
SuperSonic266  +   1170d ago

PS3 200k
360 100k


but this is vgchartz would most likely be 4/1
Muerte2494  +   1170d ago
Even though Sony..
has technically passed Microsoft as of last quarter, VGCHartz refuses to recognize them. As of September 30th, 2012 xbox360 sits at 70 million, PS3 sits at 70.2 million. Given that Cyber Monday deals take place online, I bet those numbers are going to huge for ps3 in Europe.
Dlacy13g  +   1169d ago
@Muerte2494... so looking at the reports.

MS reported in Oct. that they hit 70 million which was part of their 1st quarter reports that ran from July 1st through September 30th.

Sony reported they reached 70 million in NOVEMBER
"Sony announced cumulative sales of its PlayStation 3 reached 70 million units on November 4"

you are leaving a full month of sales difference out... BY pure logic...Sony has not caught MS unless you are trying to say MS sold zero consoles in October.

I see that VGChartz have adjusted their numbers up for the PS3 and Vita but for some reason they're both shy of the actual sales figures. Why are they always so reluctant to do that this time of year? They're 80,000 out with the PS3 and 25,000 out with the Vita.

edit: And they also seem to have 'overtracked' the 360 by 50,000... Oh well, I've used their numbers from the beginning so I guess I'll just have to take it on the chin (as usual) And how the hell can someone disagree with figures released by the ACTUAL companies involved?

YodaCracker  +   1170d ago
And this is why the PS3 will never outsell the 360. It happens every year like clockwork. For the first 3/4 of the year, the PS3 outsells the 360 every week by small - moderate amounts. Everyone says the PS3 is about to pass the 360. Then the holiday season comes and the 360 wipes away the PS3's yearly lead in just a few weeks of amazing sales and they end up just about tied every year, so the gap has stayed between 2 - 3 million for years now. Sony has done too little, too late and the PS3 will never catch up before new consoles release.

GribbleGrunger  +   1170d ago
Sorry but that's not the way it is: For 46 weeks of the year the PS3 outsells the 360 by around 40,000 to 60,000 units a week (occasionally more when a big game arrives), but for arguments sake, lets average that out to 50,000 a week. The 360 outsells the PS3 by around 500,000 to 800,000 for the last 6 weeks of the year. Do the maths.

idk this year MS may not have that 6 week advantage. Once the xmas sales come around worldwide this year I don't think the 360 is out selling the ps3 by such a huge margin at all. Europe and Japan always greatly favor Sony. And with Sony having done so well and withing range of the 360 in the US Black Friday week I don't see MS pulling the 500,000 to 800,000 lead out of the ass this time around. I think Black friday week is it for MS.
GribbleGrunger  +   1170d ago
Even using the official figures, the 360 outsold the PS3 this week by over 150,000 units and it also outsold it two weeks previous by about 100,000 each week, so I reckon the 360 WILL sell around 500,000 more consoles this Christmas (perhaps not 800,000 though).

One thing is for sure though, the PS3 will NOT be 3.3 million behind this Christmas, it'll be around 2 million. By March, that will have been reduced to 1.5 million at least and then the big games hit like TLOU, GOWA and Beyond. Some nice spikes there.

Both consoles will be neck and neck by May/June.

Sorry but I disagree. Europe and the rest of the world have yet to receive those deals we go so its only natural the 360 outsold the ps3 by such a margin. Plus we haven't gotten official numbers from other regions so how can you say the 360 has outsold them by that margin worldwide.
KrimsonKody  +   1170d ago
I believe it's because of 360s' 1 year lead.
The PS3 'may' never catch up. As each year pass, MS can offer the 360s for bundles & cheaper than the previous year, also for less than the PS3.
Soon, the next gen will come, so focus will go on to the new consoles. At this point is when Sony will catch up with the PS3, because Sony plans to continue support for it, while MS will most likely halt their support for the 360.
If the PS3 continues to sell after the next MS console, THEN Sony will get the lead (possibly within 2 years after the next MS console).

But you don't have to believe either of those. Go crunch the numbers for yourself and see what total you come up with. Sony sold 63.9 (million) at the end of their Fiscal year (FY12 ending march 31st, 2012). (click on Computer Entertainment system in the bottom left under FY2012)
This is tracking since April 1st - Sept 30th
Q1 =2.8
Q2 =3.5

2.8 + 3.5 = 6.3 (Apr.-Sept)
63.9 + 6.3 = 70.2 (worldwide since Sept 30,2012)
There I did the hard part for you. Now all you have to do it use the rational part of your brain and accept it. Number don't lie my friend.
This is why almost 2 months later wikipedia has not changed it. If it was indeed an error, I'm sure it would have been fixed by now. This is not a conspiracy.

Side note: I posted 360 numbers too. It seems people aren't disputing Wikipedia when they got Xbox360 worldwide numbers correct. But then show skepticism when wiki says ps3 has passed 360. Funny how that works.

Umm... so would you believe Sony's official statements for their sales? Because your numbers are a bit off. Sony hit 70 million in November...NOVEMBER 4th. Not in September, like MS did with the 360.

"TOKYO, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced that the cumulative sales of the PlayStation®3 (PS3®) computer entertainment system reached a milestone of 70 million units*1 worldwide as of November 4, 2012 – less than six years after the platform launched in 2006. SCE also announced that sales of the PlayStation®Move motion controller surpassed 15 million units*1 worldwide as of November 11, demonstrating continued growth and momentum of the PS3® platform."

VGChartz keeps putting the PS3 closer to the 360, then mysteriously...the 360 pulls ahead a few months later. At one point, the PS3 was within 2 million of the 360.

The PS3 has outsold the 360 worldwide for years. Then, somehow the PS3 grew to 3 million behind?!? I don't think so VGChartz.

I'm glad it's back to within 2 million though. I want this race to finish with a nailbiter!

Sadly though its wanting to win a race for second place. Everyone just quietly forgets the Wii crushed both Sony and MS this generation. Even with that console completely dying this year in sales and being phased out with the new WiiU its still untouchable.

Those are great numbers all around, surprisingly I saw a ton of regular Wii's flying off the shelves on Black Friday. Everything is up, yet people are still finding things to argue and complain about.

At the end of the day, if the console you prefer hasn't sold as much as the one you don't prefer, how does that affect the fun you have with you're console?

Weird how people act about things like console sales.

As long as Nintendo has their first party line up; Mario, Pokemon, Metroid and Donkey Kong to name a few, they will be fine and keep the causal market. It's all about getting the Hardcore and I think Sony will be gaining some while Microsoft is losing and Nintendo has open arms for them.
feeter  +   1169d ago
I love when people say Nintendo is not "hardcore" ok so Mario,Zelda and Metroid are not hardcore (back in the day they were) but they dont choose all the games to release on the system, publishers do... many companies saw the Wii sell better then PS3 or 360 so they released the casual games.. Nintendo did release Xenoblade and the Last Story (maybe they not "hardcore" and both PS3 and 360 have casual games and more and more every year) blame publishers not manufacturers for the casual games and Wii did get COD (it wasnt great and i did get my fix on the 360)... plus WiiU is getting Bayonetta 2 (thank you Nintendo but a nude woman is not hardcore) with third party publishers onboard more "hardcore" games will get released... Nintendo has a longer histroy then Sony or Microsoft so people get bored with IPs that are in their 20s... when Modern Warfare 15 or Uncharted 8 comes out people will say it the same as before or at that time they might not be "hardcore" anymore... times change will Sony and Microsoft (only time will tell)
