Nice boost for PS3, on top of home consoles as usual.

GribbleGrunger1159d ago (Edited 1159d 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.

Godchild10201159d 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.

GribbleGrunger1159d ago (Edited 1159d 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!

MooseWI1159d ago

Man, Aliens: Colonial Marines sold more than I thought, better or worse...

MakiManPR1159d ago

3DS & PS3 FTW!!

The 3DS is (IMO) the most successful handheld I've seen

Moonman1159d ago

Best two consoles game wise this year IMO...not including the beast that is coming...PS4. ;p

Zechs341159d 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.
