I really shouldn't care about numbers especially numbers that aren't 100% accurate and even more so cause we are at the end of a generation but the ps3 is still chugging over a 1 million units in 2 months.

Sony/PS3 is selling pretty strong, at the end of its cycle. They have just caught up to XBOX and maybe taken them over .. at the end of their cycles. So well done.

Let the battle begin between the new consoles already!!
Omni-Tool  +   759d ago
PS3 still has another 3 or so years under its belt and will still have games developed for it as well as the PS4 for a little longer. Microsoft will most likely kick 360 to the curb when the 720 is released.
charted  +   759d ago

When the next gen begins are we still gonna talk about PS3 vs XBOX360?

I haven't heard a comparison between PS2 vs XBOX after 3 and 360 was released.

PS2 was supported yes, but we as gamers didnt give a toss about them.

It'll happen this new gen too.
Evil-snuggles  +   759d ago
Actually ps3 has sold 1,000,000 and a half more consoles than 360 xbox worldwide and that is not counting all the red ring xboxs 360 im on my third xbox 360 my first 1 xbox 360 red ringed me my 2 the disk drive broke i barely played it xbox 360 quality is a nightmare im still on my first ps3
HammadTheBeast  +   759d ago

There was no comparison between PS2/Xbox, PS2 completely dominated and crushed the Xbox.

The only good news here its that the PSP its outselling the vita, go PSP go.

Dont you think theres a reason why so many people love PS3? Its because its so damn good.

cant wait for the PS4
JackBNimble  +   759d ago
When I first join n4g if you were a ps3 fan you were distroyed. N4G was all about the 360 and how shitty the ps3 was... that was in 2007. Times have changed , the shoe is on the other foot ... sorry about your luck nintendoland.

that is typical
not so much wow as if you look at the years they have been roughly 400k between each other. 2010 was closer to 500k between them but the other years was roughly 400k or less.

with the ps4 announcement comes the risk that sales will decline in preparation of those who will hold off and wait.

Or it could be that sony will cut the price to spur sales in light of the recent announcement. In either case we can see that there are 'possibly' more people letting go of the one console stigma and buying the other to have in addition to their initial system.

It can go with 360 only fans are starting to buy PS3 and PS3 only fans are starting to buy 360. Both have their pro and con but both are worth having.

E3 price drop most likely
Coincide with the Last of Us dropping the following Tuesday. Makes sense. With GOW, TLOU, Beyond and perhaps GT6 still set to release on PS3 (as well as Destiny and Diablo 3), it's clear to me Sony intends an dual platform approach.
Twinzclipz  +   759d ago
i dont care about 360 because i Dont like Halo/Gears/FMS/AW or FABLE

People who initially will buy a PS4 have had a PS3 for several years, it wont affect the sales of PS3 that much to be honest!

You won't be saying that after E3.
Roper316  +   759d ago
that is ever gamers favorite line I think, but very rarely is anything different after E3 imho. I think Vita will take off once the PS4 lands but that is just me & a thought which in the real world means nothing.
TongkatAli  +   759d ago
I agree with him and I'm a Vita fanboy. It should be number 1. Look how the Gameboy started it all and then look at the Vita. It's a fing epic godsend of a portable system, but most gamers are too cheap to own it.

3DS ain't got nothing but sales on it. If Nintendo made the Vita I would be up their ass too.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   759d ago
So the 3DS doesn't have good games?

At least you admit to being a Vita/Sony fanboy. Doesn't make the implication any less stupid though.
squarecircle  +   759d ago
It's not about being cheap, have you forgotten we are in a serious recession?
Also I think peoples interests are on the next gen consoles, I know I would rather save up for a PS4 than a Vita at this point in time.

Hell yah , Go PS3! Sony is definitely dominating now with no end in sight. Once the PS4 hits I don't see what could stop the Playstation brand.
Roper316  +   759d ago
if VG has PS3 ahead by 400,000 it has to be closer to 800,000 in real life. Not that I care, I play games not sales I just know how VGC is with fudging PS3 #'s & bloating 360 #'s.
solidworm  +   759d ago
Lol Nintendo, MS deserve the shit they are getting, going casual will cost them dearly next gen.
animegamingnerd  +   759d ago
well you be fair on the other end the 3DS is outselling everything else but no first or third party games has came out for the wii u since launch
Evil-snuggles  +   759d ago
doubt that people who purschased the wii don't typically buy game consoles those casual gamers have moved to smart phones and tables the games are 99cent and don't need to buy a game consoles microscam is faling in to a similar trap with the next xbox trying to attract casual gamers

I don't know. You might want to ask the people who say "wait for the official numbers" when it is MS on top of vgchartz.
memots  +   759d ago
agreed but somehow when Gvchartz comes out with U.S sales those numbers are accurate and = the world.

WiiU is in 1st Place in the NEW Gen!
Way to go Nintendo 3 Million +

BUT XB720 and PS4 have sold 0 Units. 0.o
I wonder if that will change?
I guess we will see. ;)

CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   759d ago

Even sadder that 720 and PS4 can't beat it!
I guess it's Wii all over U.

Lol "Funny" @ stage88

(just joking just reverse-psyching the whole future predicting doom trend. My joking-Logic makes just as much sense, because No one knows how good 720 and PS4 will do.)

"But Wii U isn't next gen..."

If the Wii U isn't next gen that means Nintendo have made the Wii U to compete with the Wii along with the PS3 and Xbox360.

Why would a company make their product compete with their previous product?

So the Wii U not being next gen is completely illogical on so many levels.
SaffronCurse  +   759d ago
WiiU isn't a next gen system.
LOL_WUT  +   759d ago
Sad but true
Hicken  +   759d ago
Chronologically, it is.

From a technological standpoint, however, it doesn't appear that way. When the Durango releases, we'll know for certain, but right now the Wii U is looking like a gen 7.5 console instead of a gen 8 console.
squarecircle  +   759d ago
So what you're saying is that Nintendo have made the Wii U to compete with the Wii.

Are people still finding it hard to grasp what a next generation product is?

That's like me saying I think the Iphone 5 isn't a big leap over the Iphone 4, so therefore I declare that the Iphone 5 isn't a next generation Iphone.

You can't say something is next gen or isn't next gen based on the products power, that's called being an idiot.
black911  +   759d ago
MIcrosoft is doomed next gen. I'm sorry!
gamer42  +   759d ago
They're not doomed they'll end up like the wii, concentrating on casuals with motion controls and expect shovelware, lots and lots of shovelware. Maybe if they successfully capture the casuals nintendo lost, they could win next gen in sales, but I really don't want them to, especially after what they did to Rare.

It will be hard for sony to keep stock for ps4. Everyone praises it even 3rd party devs. I think this might be the perfect people have been waiting for ages. Cannot wait for what ms has in stored just hope its not a full out casual family console or bye bye me no buy.

@ level up gamer

look at the market share. The PS3 numbers are probably a lot higher and I'm sure the 360 is now in 3rd place.

The PS3 will finish this gen strong.

VGChartz under tracks PS3 sales MUCH MUCH more than the 360. Jack Tretton says PS3 is around 77 million.

"The facts are, we debuted the PlayStation 3 at $599, which was an extremely steep price barrier for a lot of consumers. And we debuted a year after Microsoft, but on a worldwide basis, we’ve sold the same, if not more, devices. I think we’re at 77 million sold right now — it’s basically splitting hairs. Despite all that, our message has been extremely well-received around the world."

Even with VGChartz having PS3 outselling the Xbox 1,163,048 to 767,581.

I wouldn't be surprised if this chart under tracks PS3's world wide sales by a HUUUUUGE amount still. LMAO.

So no, the 360 is pretty much in last place.

Well, apparently you don't remember the rrod days.
How many millions of 360 consoles are "replacements".
I would guess 6 million at the least.

Go PS3 #1 device that people watch Netflix on. More gaming actually goes on with the Xbox I do believe. Thats not bashing the PS3 though. I really do think more gaming goes on on xbox. Look at the game sales. Whether it be a AAA exclusive or a multiplat.
Skips  +   758d ago
Are you serious? Most genres sell better on PS3 from racing games, fighting, hack n slash, platformers, action adventure games, and JRPG's (No duh). Lol Only shooters and WRPG's sell better on 360. Of course, the most popular genre right now are shooters so you saying "I really do think more gaming goes on on xbox. Look at the game sales." is understandable.

Just look at popular games for some of these genre's

Hack n slash
Action Adventure

Most of the time, PS3 versions outsell them. Just saying. Only AAA game that sells better on 360 that isn't a shooter or WRPG is like, Assassin's Creed. And only a few titles in that franchise sold better.

Put two and two together dude.

More people use Xbox 360 for entertainment (Netflix, Apps etc.) than gaming. You saying Xbox is used more for gaming is kinda invalid. lol


Yet more people use PS3 overall than Xbox 360.
