"3DS - 1,720,474"
and nintendo is doom how?

Just cut that part out. Everyone else does it lol.

exactly do people even the definition of research

They barely make a profit on each 3DS. But yes in terms of sales DOOOOOOMED
animegamingnerd  +   849d ago
isn't that pretty much the case with every new console now where they have to have games sell to make a profit
Dj7FairyTail  +   849d ago
uh no Nintendo is not barely making profit on 3DS.
They are on Wii U because of the Software Units sold is above 11m while the system itself sold above 3.06m since Jan.1
DivineAssault  +   849d ago
because 90% of publishers want nothing to do with them.. They can sell 8million nx month but if 3rd party cant sell on it, they wont make anything for it.. Nintendo sells their own games well but thats where it ends.. Few gems here n there but thats it..

I wouldnt say theyre "DOOMED" but theyre in some trouble if they cant manage to keep successful 3rd party exclusives.. PS gets almost all of them & MS is getting some too

I think the 3ds has some pretty good third-party support, not amazing, but its not like devs are avoiding them

My god...

This is the fake sales site run by the little kid Xbox fanboy who years ago got perma-banned from the neogaf forums for repeatedly posting fake sales numbers he made up to try to make the Xbox 360 sales look better than they really were.

This sad and pathetic punk is still at it?

All that effort into fabricating sales numbers for years and the Xbox 360 still ends up in last place this gen.

LOL
SDF Repellent  +   849d ago
You joined less than 3 hours ago, and somehow all your posts are all anti-Microsoft. Your pattern reminds me of Strongman and ThatKansasGuy, lol.

Looking forward of debating with you in the future. Welcome to N4G.
BanBrother  +   849d ago
@bourg

How did you get so many agrees with stating any facts? VG Chartz is undertracking both the 360 and PS3 by 4-5 million, given the fact they both announced they had sold 77 million.

God it really shows the immaturity on this site (and stupidity) when someone can spout nonsense (without showing any facts) and get agrees. You must be a tin-foil hat salesmen, coz today you just made bank.

He was actually banned for adding number's to nintendo's hardware because he thought the media purposefully low balled them

But yes, Ioi makes up his numbers or "estimates"
soxfan2005  +   849d ago
Is that any better than the Sony fanboy who keeps getting banned from N4G but makes new accounts to post EXACTLY the same BS over and over to try to make his favorite console look better?

There's more than one sad and pathetic punk here.
CoolBeansRus  +   849d ago
Bourg, I find it ironic that you are making fun of "fanboys" who alter statistics when you made a different name just to agree with yourself. Get a life little troll.
solidworm  +   849d ago
I guess with the exception of the massively under powered WiiU the next gen is coming just at the right time.
Jadedz  +   849d ago
No mention of the Vita?
Not trying to create drama, but by your definition; the Vita should be outselling the 3DS because of the merit of its ''tech'' alone. Like always - games sell hardware, so you shouldn't proclaim the Wii U dead ''just cause.''
torchic  +   849d ago
exactly. and let's be honest, apart from maybe Xenoblade 2 and another Mistwalker title (could possibly come to PS4; easy-to-develop-for platform + good working relationships with Sony) and Zelda U there's nothing of much significance coming to Wii U.

Vita AND Wii U have tough days ahead, they both need software. I just have a feeling that Vita's road to health is easier and has been forth coming. Wii U has a big challenge ahead when the true next gen arrives.

A system launch does not prove a system power. Look at
Perfect Dark Zero compared to Halo 4 and Gears of War Judgement.

Heavely Sword and Resistance Fall of Man compared to
God of War Ascension, The Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls.
MaxXAttaxX  +   849d ago
That only makes sense if there was an actual leap in tech. But it has already been done before with the 360 and PS3.
The only devs that would need time to adjust and get used to the new tech would be Nintendo's own.
Moncole  +   849d ago
Great job with the 3DS, Nintendo.
SDF Repellent  +   849d ago
It is also nice to see 3 3DS games on the list as well with Dragon Warrior VII selling 1,141,857.
thaimasker  +   849d ago
According to this website Ni No Kuni sold 0.63 mil so shouldn't it be in the top 10?
rainslacker  +   849d ago
The numbers are for the year 2013. Much of Ni No Kuni's sales were last year.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   849d ago
PS3 is doing great. Looks like it will pass 360 sales this year. If that gimmick Kinect didn't come out PS3 would have been pass the 360. Sony is 1st to have all their consoles sell 70m+. That's a big accomplishment to me.
MaxXAttaxX  +   849d ago
I think that already happened. With or without Kinect, PS3 would have been ahead years ago, had it not been for 360's 1 year head start.
StinKyNuGz  +   849d ago
Sony has passed m$ already vg charts wrong
wishingW3L  +   849d ago
these are more or less estimates not exact numbers anyway.
harrisk954  +   849d ago
I don't get how VG Chartz shows the PS3 outselling the Xbox EVERY SINGLE MONTH and yet is always about 1.5 million behind in total units no matter what the monthly figures show.
stage88  +   849d ago
It hasn't been updated. PS3 overtook the 360 a long time ago.

that should tell everybody all they want about this site. it's the reason i don't trust them, and wait for the official numbers from the companies themselves.
Dj7FairyTail  +   849d ago
VGChartz is undertracked
They have 3DS at 29m.
When it actually close to reach 31m.
And Wii at 99.0m when Nintendo reported months ago that it was already above 99m.

PS3 sold 70m report back in Nov. and VGchartz number were greater as well as Vita number is greater than the actual numbers.

vgChartz must be trying to make up numbers for sony since they use Shipped and not sold.
Aceman18  +   849d ago
when will people learn that ALL these companies use shipped to the retailers as sold for them?

it's not like they can sell the systems directly to the consumers.

GribbleGrunger  +   849d ago
You're just believing what the people on sites like this tell you. 1 years ago the gap was 3.4 million while today it's 2.3 million (according to VGChartz). You have to remember that the PS3 is outselling the 360 by around 30,000 - 40,000 a week, which means it only catches up by .1 every three or four weeks. This is why most people agree (taking the spikes into consideration) the the catch up is going to be around Nov (October if the exclusives sell stacks of PS3s).

The people who say that the gap has been at 2 million for the last 4 years and simply just lying... no other word for it.

im really surprised fifa is not on ther, is the playstations biggest seller in europe.
oldjadedgamer  +   849d ago
VGChartz numbers are fake. Made up. No better than anything you or I could poop out.
PopRocks359  +   849d ago
Not necessarily. By my understanding they are loose estimates. So they may or may not be close, but they are based on some elements of facts. It would be nice if the NPD (which is much more reliable) put out official numbers for public viewing.
oldjadedgamer  +   849d ago
If by some element of facts, you mean call your local gamestop and then extrapolate that data to a worldwide number, sure.

These numbers are bad. Use at own risk.
SpinalRemains138  +   849d ago
The fellow who does VG charts is on record as having purchased six 360 consoles due to RROD.

Anyone who clings so tightly to a brand which continually urinates and craps on your wallet, is clinically insane.

This is why the charts continually have 360 ahead of PS3 by 2 million.

Hell, I'll bet he already has his powerpoint software showing Durango ahead of PS4 by 5 million.
boybato  +   849d ago
My xbox360 lasted me the whole gen, said no one ever. lol
puamdefokejpn  +   849d ago
Good for you ! you are an exception,... but good ,.. game on. Sales really don't matter because PS4 comes out,..Vita is like gameboy awesome,.. maybe if they dropped the price,..( It is still expensive as fuck,.. but amazing,.. I am in love with that thing)
