That's the positive gamer posture I am talking about... Bubbles

The European VGChartz are the ones that are relevant then?

I don't go by these numbers also but it sorta makes sense considering its the U.S market. And Vice Versa European market. Its their respective regions after all.

@Janitor Why a comment just trolling Sony PS Vita and Sony exclusives? you are the worst kind of fanboy that exists on this website, because you are not a fanboy in the positive sense of the word that is to love some games from a company, you are a "hateboy", in this case, a "Sony Hateboy".

What is embarassing is your posture as a gamer.

Not trolling, just stating facts. I don't "hate" Sony. I don't love them either, they're just a company that makes some very stupid decisions, especially with the vita. Also, I have bought two PS3's and have been a plus subscriber for over a year. PSN ID is LordJ81 look me up if you don't believe me. The PS3 is a great console, but there needs to be some balance here, as people on N4G gush over it like schoolgirls at a Bieber concert. So get over yourself, this is a sales article, what did you think we'd be talking about here, meatloaf recipes?

your facts are from vgcharts

which mean ..those are not facts
DonMingos  +   705d ago
That is just a troll comment. You watch the sales numbers and what do you see? No PS3 exclusives in the Top 10 and low Vita sales. You even called one console sales numbers embarassing... What is that? That is pure hate towards a company and you know it...

I don't know if a PS Vita stole your girlfriend or something, just get over it, eat some meatloaf and just thank all this companies for keep supporting this industries with games and consoles, wether you buy them or not.

"C'mom Vita this is just embarrassing. Outsold by the old DS, and destroyed by the 3DS again?"

LOOOOOOOOL, both the DS and 3DS are outselling both the Wii AND the Wii U? I don't get how it's embarrassing for them to outsell the PSVita. In that case, the Wii U must be a complete failure (sale wise) too right?

"Also, funny how the console that "has no exclusives" has TWO in the top ten"

What? Halo? Microsoft's BIGGEST franchise? No shit it would be on the list, you would be a complete retard if you didn't think it would be. Just like how ANY Gran Turismo game would be there too if one was released in 2012. DEEEERRPPPPP.

Kinect Adventures? lol

"If you guys actually bought the crap you praise so much, that might change..."

You mean games like Gran Turismo? Uncharted? God Of War? Killzone? LittleBigPlanet? Just fyi if you've been living under a rock, most of Sony's games this year have been new IP's. Not HUGE FLAGSHIP titles like the ones above, of course they would have low sales. New IP's usually tend to have low sales at first. Why do you think Microsoft likes to churn out the same old shit year after year? GUARANTEED SALES. They don't like taking risks unlike that "other" console.

"but there needs to be some balance here, as people on N4G gush over it like schoolgirls at a Bieber concert."

Like that never happened when the 360 released? Everybody was bashing Sony because "they had no games", *looks at years 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2013 (ESPECIALLY 2013)*

Why are so many people's comments hidden for no reason even when there just stating what is shown in the article. This site is full of little bitches who get offended over nothing.
Janitor  +   705d ago
I got reported for trolling by stating what was in the article.

Vita got ouslod by 3ds AND DS. PS3 has no exclusives in top 10, 360 has 2. I must've hurt their feelings.

And yes DonMingos, those Vita numbers are embarrassing. Even Sony admits it's not selling like they expected. Are they trolling their own product???

DonMingos  +   705d ago
maybe if didn't call some games "crap" and call the vita sales embarassing you would'nt have been downbubbled.

You weren't stating what was in the article... you were using the article to troll and bash one company's related products...

I'm glad that the hate is penalized around here
Belking  +   705d ago
Its seems to be a crime to state an opinion or fact here. If you say something good about The Last of us or God of War it's smooth sailing, but if you say you like Halo or Forza you get PM's saying how sony is our one and only god....lol
TheRealHeisenberg  +   705d ago
Shhhh...you are not allowed to post that.
Okay nobody is going to point out that Halo is kicking assets?? I mean come on people.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   705d ago
Bu bu but it is the only "hard core" exclusive on the 360.
NukaCola  +   704d ago
Halo 4! Great job. As long as COD isn't on top, everyone wins!
GuyManDude  +   705d ago
I'm going to rant for a second:

Before I start I should first mention that I own a PS3 and only a PS3...

What the f&*# is going on with PS3 game sales? I'm looking at the 2012 global software chart and it's embarrassing. The top three PS3 games aren't surprising: Black Ops 2, FIFA, and ACIII. But what's at #4? Resident Evil 6. Seriously. RE6 sold 2.2 million copies on PS3.

But wait, it gets worse. 1 million people bought RE Operation Raccoon City. Wtf people. More people bought that POS than Dishonored. Also, Borderlands 2 only sold 1.2 million copies. The sales of Borderlands 2 and Dishonored combined on PS3 are less than RE6 sales.

You know what's not on the list? 2012 1st party games. Here are some numbers (and they're bad):

Starhawk: 200,000
Twisted Metal: 600,000
LBP Karting: 400,000
PlayStation All-Stars: 380,000

Those 4 combined are less than RE6's sales.

Starhawk selling that low is pathetic. You can kiss Lightbox goodbye because of that. They fired 75% of their workforce and are making iPhone games now. iPhone games.

For the record I bought Twisted Metal, Starhawk, Borderlands 2, and Dishonored (among others this year) and haven't bought a Resident Evil game in 7 years.

Get your crap together PS3 owners.
Ck1x  +   704d ago
I agree with you... PS3 has some of the best 1st party exclusives! But if PS3 owners don't buy these games for some reason, what kind of message is being sent to Sony? Specially in the face of CoD selling so well... Yuk
tubers  +   704d ago
Those PSV numbers aren't doing well.

Hope Sony ups the ante this 2013 for their handheld.

It can't afford to get burried this year as it will only make it harder to garner 3rd party support if prospector devs see the sales results after MH and Pokemon come in.

Hopefully KZM or the next rumored COD finally turns things around for the VITA... or something bigger.
