Nice boost for PS3, on top of home consoles as usual.
GribbleGrunger  +   1004d ago
That boost can only be attributed to MGR. I see no other reason for it. I really hope that the PS4 reveal doesn't reduce the spikes that GOWA is going to create next month. We may even see a mini spike for Sly in Europe too. I'm not going to quote Jack Tretton because I've used VGchartz throughout -- for better or worse. They have the gap at 1.3 now so I'm still sticking with November for the catch up.

The ps3 boost might be because people were waiting for the PS4 to enjoy PS3 games but once they heard it doesn't support BC they went and bought one.
Godchild1020  +   1004d ago
Was MGR out during the week ending om the 16th? I thought it was on Aliens CM. We should see MGR and the boost from it on next weeks update.
GribbleGrunger  +   1004d ago
Yeah, you might be right. In that case It's something of an anomaly

@moonman: It will certainly outsell it -- it has done every year -- but I very much doubt that it will double the sales. The PS3 only needs to sell between 40 - 60,000 more a week for the PS3 to catch the 360 by November. Throw in a spike or two (which could give us a difference of over 100,000 for a couple of weeks) and it's easily attainable for November.

The only scenario that could create what you suggest is IF the 360 drops drastically in sales over the next few months and I can't see that happening to be honest. I can't say for sure it won't but I'm damn close to certain it won't. But to play devils advocate: If it does, I expect it to catch up in October.

When PS3 is $199, it will more than double..maybe triple X360 sales any given week!
MooseWI  +   1004d ago
Man, Aliens: Colonial Marines sold more than I thought, better or worse...
MakiManPR  +   1004d ago
3DS & PS3 FTW!!

The 3DS is (IMO) the most successful handheld I've seen
Moonman  +   1004d ago
Best two consoles game wise this year IMO...not including the beast that is coming...PS4. ;p
Zechs34  +   1004d ago
For once, please lets not compare console sales and let us just be amazed at the reason our industry has no creativity or new ides.

That abomination, Aliens:CM has sold nearly 1 MILLION copies (based on reports prior to this one and PC sales)

I hope I am not alone is asking, HOW IN THE HOLY HELL?

Makes me sad :(

GOOD luck wishing that zechs34 on here i guarantee you their will be console wars, console sales bragging again.

"my toy better than your toy" MS made more money than SONY all over again.
shinrock  +   1004d ago
so i guess VG is on point today,huh? lol
AWBrawler  +   1004d ago
I see the wii you got a little 5% bump. it will get another next time around too, cos now the games are coming
Catnip  +   1003d ago
People who say Nintendo is dying are quite incorrect. Even if the Wii U isn't taking off, Nintendo is still doing great up there!
Here's to hoping all three companies do great in this upcoming generation. I, for one, am incredibly excited to be a gamer.
AKR  +   1003d ago
The Wii U got a slight bump, which is good. That should really start firing up by next month - As that's when we're going to see some software coming out on it. Three big titles already coming out next month:

- Need for Speed: Most Wanted U
- Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate

~ Maybe now people will start paying just a little more attention to the U. We could even see some ads popping up, again.

Good job going for the PS3 and 3DS.

AWBrawler  +   1003d ago
