. . . see what happens when u sell such an unworthy console, the wii u is just garbage. how is the wii u which is supposed to be a console and is being mutilated by portable devices, cant wait for the true next gen consoles. people with sense are waiting for true next gen consoles. "next gen starts when ps4 is here"

Mutilated is a bit strong as there is only one portable on that list worth mentioning sales wise this week.
Prodigy-X  +   611d ago
PS3 is dominating.

PS2 outsold PS3 as recently as 2009.

PS2 didn't have the drop off the Wii has seen.

Vchartz with a Z where gueesstinates are considered a realible source.
InMyOpinion  +   611d ago
As long as Sony come out as winners no one questions their numbers :)

If it was the other way around people would say that VGChartz "has a history of padding M$ sales" or "wait for official numbers". After all, this is N4G.

@inmyopinion

I still question VG charts even though ps3 is winning its still under tracked when official numbers come 9x out of 10 360 will have sold less than vg's guesstimates and ps3 would have sold more its always the situation with VG and europe

@knight_crawler & inmyopinion

i'm ps3 fan but times and times again i said i don't trust their numbers ..and still don't trust them their numbers are wrong no matter sony on top or not

you two should not speak of all ps3 fans
since some of them trust the site and some don't
same thing with xbox360 fans

PS3 kicking ass, No surprises there.

DMC bombed in Europe
digger18  +   611d ago
After looking at both these and the US figures, more hardware is sold in Europe every month. So the people who keep saying the US is the largest market are idiots.
boybato  +   611d ago
maybe they consider software sales as well. jeez... who cares anyway?

P.S.

Just keep supporting JRPG's my Euro friends so that they'll get localized. Thank god for no region locking. lol

Why are we comparing a country to an entire continent?
Kingofwiiu  +   611d ago
North America is an entire continent. And Western Europe has roughly the same amount of people maybe a little bit more.

Eastern Europe basically has nothing to do with Game sales due to poverty. They're all playing pre owned PS2 and Maybe Wii and DS.

Main EU game sales = Britain , Germany , France , Spain , Italy , Scandanavia , and that's pretty much it. The combined population of those country's is about 300,000,000 just like USA.

@Kingofwiiu

Poverty? Does America not have poverty. 16% of the population lives in poverty and 20% of children live in poverty. So, 48,000,000 people in America live in poverty.

Poverty rate in Britain: 9.9%
Poverty level of Germany 14%
Poverty level of France 13.5%
Poverty level of Spain 21.1%
Poverty level of Italy: 13%
Poverty level in Sweden: 10%
Total mean poverty percentage: 13.6%

16% of America has nothing to do with gaming using your generalization.

And I never said North America. I replied to a comment that compared the US to Europe.

Wow, if you wanna play the stupid game and compare sales for one week between a continent and a country, filter weekly sales on the VGCharts site for the 22-12-2012.

Another Supreme victory for Sony
Bathyj  +   611d ago
i think its interesting that people have been saying all gen that japans sales dont matter because they pale in comparison but america and europe kind of cancel each other out while japan is the deciding vote
Ck1x  +   611d ago
WiiU isn't selling because it needs the right types of exclusive games to push people's interest in it. Has nothing to with if fanboys think its next-gen or not! Fact is if the ps4 or 720 don't have must have titles at launch they wont be selling on next-gen merits alone either... 3DS was proof of that, Vita is proof of that and the WiiU is proof of that!
Droid Control  +   611d ago
Sony dominates

M$ and Sony must be laughing their asses off at the Wii U's terrible performance.
If they don't feel threatened they may not feel they need to release new consoles this year.

lol..I'd hardly call that dominating unless you consider declining sales domination. Poor Vita.

"lol it's funny seeing the difference in your comments when it comes to certain consoles."

lol..it's even funnier to see people act like they don't care about sales but can't stand when someone else makes a comment about them. All it proves is that you are just as butt hurt. Get a life dude and stop patrolling the site. Don't be such a zombie because this console stress will kill ya.

Patrolling? LOL! I read the comments on weekly sales guesstimates for the entertainment value from time to time. Not my fault you happen to comment on both charts. It's obvious which console comes out top matters a great deal to you though. Your "haha sucker" PM rings a bell.

LOL! VG Crap. Add another 10,000 to PS3 as they always under track PS3 numbers.
Dude Dutch  +   610d ago
And still we react to Vgchartz...... and they still keep making up numbers. Sweet!
gamingzen  +   610d ago
Ps4 and next gen xbox are going to have the exact same problem as wii u infact they will probably sell less as they are going to cost around £399 thid is why microsoft is thinking about selling them on contract also hiw many games do you people think are going to be released with these consoles on day one and how many are going ti be any good xbox release titles are going to be forza, halo 5 possibly a new gear of war and maybe a new fable game and loads of shitty kinect part titles.
