Very nice start to Sly 4's sales, I cant stress enough to not miss out on this game with how much content it has and it's one of the best D platformers this gen
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   1013d ago
I don't know why yo people are exaggerating Sly sales but it's kinda sad. The game launched at $40 and has sold less than Twisted Metal (267K) on its debut week (in the US only) and that game was/is considered a commercial flop in some circles.
I just can't wrap my head around this pretense that it did wonderfully. I mean even the pre-orders were higher that than this.

"and that game was/is considered a commercial flop in some circles. "

You mean by the financial experts in the N4G comments section?

You know Sly 4 is also offered as a digital download? That was my choice of distribution.
Dante112  +   1013d ago
@ aceitman

Actually the 360 had a 8 million unit lead (It's seems like the closer the PS3 gets, the shorter the 360's head start number becomes. The story keeps changing lol).

I'm with you Abash!

I have said it before - Sly 4 is the best Sly game to date.

All fans young and old should pick this up and enjoy a very good ride while supporting the game/franchise and the development group.

I thought PS3 had overtaken Xbox 360 in total global sales, or was I misinformed? What gives?
torchic  +   1013d ago
we will get PS3 numbers from Sony at the end of the month.

if the PS3 hasn't overtaken the 360 (imo at the very least they're on par) already, the takeover will happen sometime this year.
Nykamari  +   1013d ago
They are going to sell, $99 XBOX 360!
kikizoo  +   1013d ago
They are already giving xbox with computers, etc since years...but can't compete with ps3 + library.
aceitman  +   1013d ago
The 360 had a 5 million units year head start . With a cheaper priced system , I give my hats to Sony if ther just 1.5 million behind , a price drop this week will catch that and pass it by end of spring. Even today the ps3 is still at a higher price

Lvl_up_gamer  +   1013d ago
VGChartz tracks sales from retail to general public which equates to market share.

The numbers you are referring too are "shipped" numbers given by a 3rd party and were stated as "estimates" and NOT Sony's own numbers, meaning what Sony sells TO retailers. So shipped numbers will always be higher then VGChartz numbers because obviously there are consoles in stock at retail from shipping. If you go to Gamestop and see available consoles on the shelves or floor, those are "shipped". When you buy one and walk out the door from retail, that is now a market share sale as you are now a customer that has purchased from retail.

Any more confusion?

Ni No kuni needs more ads.. Can't wait to see how the new marketing team handles game releases. They did the halo "believe" ad.

They also made this.

Anyway ni no kuni is better than cod.

And ps3 going hard!

Call of Duty is still in the top ten!

Congrats Activison for making COD the most loved franchised by PS3 and 360 gamers this gen.

Hopefully you can continue the trend on the PS4 and 720.

Edit: Disagree all you want but the numbers do not lie and PS3 and 360 owners have spoken and they would prefer COD over Halo, Killzone or any other PS3 and 360 game.

So what if the video game version of McDs sells best on both systems? Ps3 still has a much more genre-diverse library.
porkChop  +   1013d ago
Hopefully it stays there. They said they'll make a sequel if the game sells well in the West.

Haha, Nintendo deserves love as well. They just really need to price drop the WiiU already.
Qrphe  +   1013d ago
FE sold well and that's good (hopefully this makes Nintendo realize that they should localize more titles sooner). SC4 did pretty well for the 0 ads I saw for it.
PopRocks359  +   1013d ago
I heard FE has completely sold out in some areas, which is pretty awesome for Nintendo fans if it entices Nintendo to change their strategy on what games to bring over.
Qrphe  +   1013d ago
It had sold out in the GameStops around my area by the week of release. I just hope the sales were good enough for Nintendo to localize even more titles.
PS4isKing_82  +   1013d ago
Sony killing it lately like the industry leader of old.
It's good to see them returning back to form like old days.

Sorry Xbox and Nintendo, looks like kaz is bringing the ps2 days back and you don't stand a chance!

Nice for PS3 and Ni no Kuni.

This games surpasses 500k, that's pretty good :)

Woah, what? I mean what? No marketing and Sly Thieves in Time outsold Ni No Kuni?! Well im damn happy bout this :D Congrats to Sanzaru for making such an awesome game!
Gimmemorebubblez  +   1013d ago

I want Sony to do well because in MY OPINION they never fail to deliver a fantastic core experience.I think Kazuo Harai is a great CEO but blatant fanboism like saying that Ninty and MS don't have a chance is the reason you only have 1 bubble. Although there are many Sony fans on N4g (Myself included) you are exactly whats wrong with this site.

I'm probably late to the party on this one but: I'm happy that the 3DS has picked up over the course of time. I know that there was a lot of commotion early on about poor sales, but it seems to be on the right track now.
Hingle_Mcringleberry  +   1013d ago
@r21 Yes that makes sense, lets compare a 4 week sales to debut sales. Because thats how you tell if a game is doing well, compare its brand new sales to current sales of an older game.
Hey look, Sly outsold Wii Fit! Way to strike gold SONY!

You're right for the most part but if it was Halo 4 still the top 10, all you would hear is OMG DAT MASTER CHEEEEIF. STILL GOTZIT

All games don't have to sell 5+ million copies to be either successful commercially or financially.

Play games, not sales.

nikrel  +   1013d ago
Man I just bought DS3 last night, it's awesome.

All this bitching about action and whatnot is silly.

If you actually play the game from the start the humans make sense and it's no bad at all, It felt very dead space right after 2min into the game.

I think alot of review sites can't give the story and feel for the game right as it's started up because they do not want to give away details?

But it is a dead space game, that is for sure.
Zechs34  +   1013d ago
Yep. Very well said. Dead Space 3 is a fine entry into the series. Very good game.
MadMen  +   1013d ago
The wiiU is doing horribly, what a failure.
Theyellowflash30  +   1013d ago
damn... Wii U a failure 3 months in? Just like the Xbox 360 and PS3 then right? Cause they all had similar numbers. And holy crap if the Wii U is a failure.... what about the Vita?
MadMen  +   1013d ago
Agree WiiU is a failure based on the 3 months.
Theyellowflash30  +   1013d ago
So the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U were all failures based on 3 months of data? Because they all had similar numbers in their first three months on the market.
chadboban  +   1013d ago
Woah, Fire Emblem is doing better than I thought it would, and that's just in the US, it hasn't even been released in europe as yet. It's also nice to see Ni No Kuni and Sly up there.

Wii U needs to release som killer games before its too late & only fans (myself included) buy it to play the 1st party games.. Bayonetta 2 looks to be the only good 3rd party exclusive it has coming this year.. I wish i wouldve waited to buy the thing but i thought Rayman legends was dropping this month & was exclusive.. (I was fooled again by nintendos promises & it wont happen ever again)

BTW PS Plus is FANTASTIC! & PS3 is only going to grow stronger in sales as the other exclusives release... Cant wait for PS4!!! 3 more days til i see what its all about!

StreetsofRage  +   1012d ago
With so many happy sony fanboys around I guess VGchartz is correct now. If that's the case than you are also agreeing that the 360 is beating the ps3 by around 1.6 million consoles.

At least now they're admitting that these numbers are correct. :)
PAYNEinc85  +   1012d ago
I could care less what the sales figures claim. We'll never know the 100% truth anyways.
