They show PS3 numbers to have done very well on black Friday. I wonder if Sony will release those numbers?
SuperSonic266  +   821d ago
xbox 71m and ps3 69m?

PS3 also sold 525k on black friday not 447k!

vgchartz is biased as usual

PASBR not in top 20 on debut week, what are PS3 owners buying instead?
Edit @supersonic Microsoft announced a long time ago that Kinect had sold 20 million but Vgchartz has it at 17 million still and nobody complains about bias. Why? Because everybody with 2 brain cells to rub together knows that Microsoft and SONY release shipped to retail numbers whereas Vgchartz tracks (I use the term loosely) units sold to consumers.
That is why vgchartz has 360 at 71 million and Ps3 at 69 million. It isn't rocket science.
After counting the number of PS3 games in the top 20 (3), PASBR coming at number 22 is actually impressive since it was beaten by very established franchise games.

Why must you be abusive to make your point? Could that be why you're a unibubble?

I might be wrong (as I don't remember where I heard this), but I thought Sony receives payment as hardware is shipped to the retailer, whereas Microsoft receives payement only once the retailer has sold on to consumer.

If that's right, then VGChartz has to go one of two ways; one paints a more positive picture for MS, the other for Sony. They have gone the MS way (not necessarily with this purpose in mind - I'm not suggesting a conspiracy!).

Can anyone confirm, or otherwise?

No big box retailer works on consignment. All orders are shipped to retail then invoiced on thirty to sixty day terms.

more vastly incorrect numbers from VGshitz. PS3 hit 70m mark a while ago yet still at 69m and they undertracked PS3 black friday sales and overtracked 360 black friday sales
