Amazing Halo 4 sales - It's now sold 5.91m in its 1st 4 weeks on sale! :)

7.2m+ sales in 2012 is now a dead cert.

Not bad although I am pretty sure Halo 3 did better. As did Gran Turismo 5.
Embeepee  +   1149d ago took Gran Turismo 5 over 15 weeks to reach 5.91m...Also, it took Halo 3 11 weeks to reach 5.91m.

So Halo 4 is tracking WAY ahead if both of them!
Alderney  +   1149d ago
Well deserved reward for 343i. Halo 4 has got to be the most complete game of the generation thus far.

Great performances for Xbox 360 and 3DS.

Lol as if the Sony fanboys were more noble in their reception of the 360's performance.

kudos to MS for continuing to do so well after 6-7 years. Way to put up a fight and make your mark on the industry.

Halo 4 outsells all 2012 PS3 exclusives combined.

Anyway,not surprising given the quality of the ps3 exclusives in 2012. They have had some sales dogs this year.
Godchild1020  +   1149d ago
Yet, the PS3 still seems to be selling very well with some of those "sales dogs."

Great Job to 343i, they are showing the can be given an IP, come out strong and live up to the name. Enjoyed every minute of it.
Fel08  +   1149d ago
Wow, the 3DS and the Xbox are on a roll. The WiiU is doing pretty good too. Sony needs to advertise the Vita better. It's an amazing piece of technology (getting mine this Christmas), it just needs to be promoted better.
Riderz1337  +   1149d ago

Both PS3 and 360 are very close in sales, BUT... PS3 hit 70 Million on NOV 4th. Please see the link and quote from Sony's OFFICIAL press release they put out on Nov 16th regarding when the PS3 hit 70 million in sales:

"Tokyo, November 16, 2012–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."

And here is the link to that press release:

It was not Sept 30th... read it clearly "the PlayStation®3 (PS3®) computer entertainment system reached a milestone of 70 million units*1 worldwide as of November 4, 2012" AS OF NOVEMBER 4th.

...carry on
Ezz2013  +   1149d ago

what is your point ?!
what i said still stand

you already proved my point
how in the hell xbox 360 sold 3M and ps3 didn't sell one single console ?!

Muerte2494  +   1149d ago
there is no point in showing facts to people. Sony has never quoted worldwide number mid quarter simply because they don't have those numbers. It is impossible for Sony to track EU given all the different regions, that's why Europe doesn't have an official sales trackers like NPD(USA) or Media Create(JPN).

Sony didn't release their Quartely reports until Nov 1st. They didn't make the actual announcement until Nov 16th. Like I tell alot of people, go add the numbers up for yourself and see what you come up with. I doubt Sony was including the numbers of October when they were still calculating their numbers for the end of the quarter (Sept 30th).

If people want to use that logic. Microsoft didn't announce they passed 70million until October 19th. Two weeks later Sony passes 70 million (Nov 4th). No matter how you look at it, one fact remains, ps3 is selling at a faster rate than Xbox360.

Also now I'm officially apart of the Wii U club. Picked up my system today.

cpayne93  +   1149d ago
Yeah you have a point. Actually when I was looking at how a game sold, the number of units next to the name, which was the number of units it had sold so far, was actually different than the number found if you clicked on the game. I found that this happened with several games, at least Vita games anyway, those were the ones I was looking at.
Dark_Overlord  +   1149d ago
I never have, until they provide sources for their info, and also not repeatedly have to be corrected for false figures then I won't even give them a hit.

BanBrother  +   1149d ago
It is only ever used when it suits fanboys. One day the sles are real, the next it's fake, etc.

Both the xbox 360 and ps3 have had undertracking and overtracking, well, that is at least what people keep saying. I'd prefer to watch monkey throw crap at each other than listen to the same fanboy dribble every VG Chartz article. It is strangely amusing though.
Ben_Grimm  +   1147d ago
Yes, notice how VGChartz is recognized to undertrack PS3 only on this site.

Never are the games in question, or Nintendo, or 360, but PS3 for some reason is always undertracked according to some folks here on N4g
Anon1974  +   1146d ago
Who's saying they're right? All I see is people saying they're often wrong...and they are.

Currently they seem to be overtracking PS3 sales for the year. We know from Sony's numbers that they hit 70 million at the start of Nov (and it was the start of Nov. I was wrong before when I said it was Sept 30. Look up Sony's own press release, they have a "as of" date right on it. I was confused by a chart on Sony's site tracking hardware sales) so based on their last PS3 specific figures, that was just over 6 million, but if you look at VGChartz figures for the year, Jan-Nov they're showing 7 million. VGChartz also has PS3 numbers at just over 70 million right now when Sony confirmed they hit that number 6 weeks ago, and we know the PS3 moved half a million units during Black Friday alone in the US.

We also know from MS that between Jan-Sept, the 360 sold 4.2 million units to retail while VGChartz shows over 5 million during that period. And, although we don't often see numbers from specific games, when those figures are revealed, VGChartz is almost always way out in left field.

It doesn't matter who's overtracked or undertracked. That has nothing to do with it. You guys make it sound like throngs of people are singing VGChartz's praises the second they show Sony out in front of the 360. Where's the evidence of that, because all I see is a lot of people questioning VGChartz and where they get their numbers from, as they've always done, myself included.

No one is "praising" these figures or criticizing only when they over/under track one over the other. No one needs VGChartz to point out that the PS3 has sold faster than the 360. Sony and MS's own figures show that just fine.

Yeah...except the 3ds is outselling the what's your point? I swear you guys are blind if you can't see this thing is a major flop.

But to be fair, if those vita numbers, and the vita numbers we've seen all year don't qualify as a flop, please tell me what does then? Anyone?

Godchild1020  +   1149d ago
@Janitor, I don't think the 3DS was outselling the DS when it launched or the months prior to the price drop.

Either way, I have both and neither are flops. Once you get the best of all consoles, you stop caring and enjoying the games they tend to offer.

Also for the only 250 dollar handheld console on the market right now, it's doing okay and that doesn't make it a flop. A flop is what the 3DS was before the price drop. No matter how much it sold prior to the drop. Nintendo must have thought it was a flop to drop the price like that.
Zhipp  +   1149d ago
Pre-price cut, the 3DS was selling at a faster pace than the Vita currently is and it was pulling a higher profit; It was a disaster. Nintendo even considered that situation to be dire enough for a drastic price cut.

In addition to that, the PSP launched in 2005(2004 japan) and steadily outsold the DS(pre-lite) despite the fact that it was $100 more. You're in denial if you think that the Vita's current sales are anything but dismal, especially when compared to it's predecessor. I'm not saying that the Vita's sales will never improve--that's preposterous! I'm just saying that we need to be realistic about this.

I never said the Vita sales were great, but they are not a flop either. I know the Vita could be selling better and I know it will sell better, come next year at some point. I personally think if Sony could take a lost on the Vita, they would have dropped the price as Nintendo did with the 3DS. But since, they don't want to or holding off, just in case they need to with the next PlayStation Home console.

This thread helped me out understand your point a little better. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz...

The Vita cant even outsell the aging Wii or DS and is only outselling the PSP. Given the time of year that is abysmal. I'm sure Vita owners will paint a nice picture with those numbers but honestly, price cuts, package deals, free games via PS+ and none of it seems to have helped.

I have purchased my son a Vita LBP pack for xmas as it was cheaper than a 3DS in NZ but I still feel like I've thrown good money away.
Tewi-Inaba  +   1149d ago
Why do you feel like you threw money away?
because others aren't buying the system?
That's just stupid

but yeah vita is ded
it was even outsold by PSP in japan
This is in the same week Fate/Stay Night :RN came out for the Vita one of the games I previously thought would make Vita sales skyrocket...
was outsold by NSMB2.....

So, for all that you hate the Vita- let's face it: you DO hate the thing- you went out and bought one anyway?

I don't get it. You have ZERO confidence in the thing, and not a good word to say about it. Anybody on this site would have guessed the only reason you'd buy one is to video yourself destroying it and post it on youtube.

What was the point in all that crap if you just bought one anyway? What validity do your words have?

GraveLord  +   1148d ago

You are so misinformed. Sony's financial situation has nothing to do with PS4. All it means is they can't take $200 losses on each system, which they should even if they were making huge profits either....

Things aren't as bad as you think right now no matter how much you deny it.

(yes, I can get around your lame block. I take that as a sign of defeat btw.)
Belking  +   1148d ago
You are I really don't care about about their financial situation. You obviously do which is laughable. I guess they wanted Kaz to take over because things were just going all so well right? I don't care how good or bad things are at sony. My world doesn't revolve around them or MS. I was just pointing out facts. They are in a financial bind right now and have been for years. You don't have to believe it but it's happens to be true.

Dude you need to wake up and please stop sending me PMs about how much you love sony. It's really childish. If you can't stand someone stating facts then go join another site or something. You are only defeating yourself because you are obviously imagining this so called battle you are in. Long Live Play
