xbox, ps3 and pc all did well but the xbox did the best. the wii lacked proper software titles for the past three years and a lot of people thought nintendo would have a lot of software titles for the wii u but that wasnt the case at all which is eveident by the software release schedule for wii u. wii u was released too early imo. the wii u will have to go months with very bad sales until the big hitters are out at christmas time and go up against ps4 and xbox 720 which will further strain saleswii u software and hardware sales.

When the PSP is shifting a few thousand titles less than Nintendo's latest console it might be time to be a little concerned


The Wii has the largest install base for this console gen hence the sales. PSP is a dying handheld that was rife for piracy and has been abandonned byb many devs, so shouldn't really be outselling Nintendo's latest kit.

Vita and the WiiU is a better comparison for recently released hardware.

When the Wii is shifting a whole bunch of thousands more titles than SONY's latest handheld console it might be to be a lot concerned. - your logic.
@Minato, why aren't you telling that to caseh? You are the one that made that comparison.
@caseh, if the Vita and WiiU comparison is the better one, why didn't you go there to start with? Why did you choose a handheld with 75 million users VS a new console with barely 3 million users? Why is it fair to compare the very new WiiU to the established psp but foul to compare the established Wii to the newish Vita?
Case of changing the rules to suit your agenda huh?

How are the digital sales, Jamal?

Oh, wait, VGChartz can't track that.

How accurate do you think these comparisons are, Jamal, given that the Vita likely has much higher digital software sales than either the Wii OR the Wii U?
ABizzel1  +   896d ago
Actually these are software sales.

Replying to your original comment: How was Good Guy Jamal trolling on
his last comment ?
Was asking myself the same thing!
Made an estute(no I don't know what that means) and factual observation that was not to the liking of a mod it seems.
Caseh compares WiiU (barely 6 months old) game sales to the PSP(8 years old) and says Nintendo should be worried and calls me an idiot and he gets away with it.
I mention that one console is selling more games than 3 consoles and 4 consoles combined and I'm trolling -__-
Least I didn't lose any bubbles, although this comment might just do it.

Yeah, I don't know what people are smoking on this site saying that post was "trolling". I'm a pro Sony guy, but that was pathetic. Giving props to something on this website is like pulling teeth off to these fanboys.

Then there is the argument that the sales are bogus which idk to be true.
FamilyGuy  +   896d ago
How's this for mind blowing?
These are US sales numbers and the 360 supposedly has 42+ million consoles in the US in comparison to the PS3 which only has 26+ million consoles.

YET SOME HOW the software sales are extremely close 787,016 to 716,589

and even closer than that:
6: (X360) Naruto 47,320
7: (PS3) Naruto, 45,470

To me it doesn't look like the 360 is doing all that well at all, it SHOULD be selling almost double the software that the PS3 sells in the US yet it's no where near double.

THAT'S "mind blowing".

N4G's definition of trolling is a mystery. I lost two bubbles pointing out PC gamers who troll console oriented articles.

@FamilyGuy - Those numbers are telling indeed.
LostDjinn  +   896d ago
These are pretend software sales.

The funny thing is that he's so desperate for anything to backup his bias he resorted to trolling.

It's similar to how you go about things so I'd guess you know exactly what he's doing.

You are making no sense.

He is making an educated observation given the info presented to him in the article.

His comment should not have been marked for trolling. This site is heavily bias towards Sony and some butt hurt Sony fanboy admin took offense to his comment.

This site is so plagued with Sony fanboys even the mods are heavily influenced to abuse their power in favor for Sony.
LostDjinn  +   896d ago
So one of his cheerleading rants gets mark for trolling by the userbase and its the...wait, what did you say "butt hurt Sony fanboy admin" that's to blame. With logic like that you must be popular. I see your one bubble inhibits your ability to respond so I wont say anything that requires a response.

Just know that there's always sales on tinfoil if you break your hat.

Careful Lvl_up_fanboy.

Your tin foil hat is coming loose.

Edit- haha oops, LostDjinn already made a tinfoil hat joke. :P

The fact he got labeled as trolling simply by adding the sell count shows you how twisted things work on this site.

You can't speak ill of Sony, even if it what you are saying it true fact.
Tito08  +   896d ago
It looks to me you have no idea how the Xbox fanboys act, it can be said I'm more of a PS guy, but I can tell the difference between both PS & Xbox fanboys, in that regard, there might be more PS fans on N4G, but does not mean they're the worst, if you look back in 2005-06, Xbox blind boys were all around N4G because of the fact 360 was out first and how the launch line up was "The biggest and best in gaming history", and always mimics MS execs's words, and talking crap about PS3 until it started to get more pumped up, and I wouldn't be surprised lots of these guys turned into PS3 fans. Maybe both react badly on their own merits, but honestly there's no such a thing on earth as worst as the Xbox fanboys. They always praise everything Microsoft does, even if for most people is a bad move.

They praised Microsoft for not allowing Rare to work on Killer Instinct 3, one of the best fighting games ever made, I bet you both Sony & Nintendo fans would love to see it happening, maybe some Xbox owners too, but Xbox Blind-boys are like the Yankee fans, they never acknowledge Microsoft mistakes!

Funny thing about the PC numbers is while they are impressive, it's for retail locations. As far as I know, Steam doesn't release numbers, neither do GOG or GMG.

PC gaming is benefiting from the stale consoles. I upgraded my PC and have been gaming on it again. I never thought it would happen... You realize how out of date the consoles are when you have a lightning fast PC.
Qrphe  +   896d ago
The best part is that people are still buying SimCity
AnotherProGamer  +   896d ago
what does it mean PC like how many PCs were sold or gaming PCs?

I don't understand
ps3_pwns  +   896d ago
lol pc gamers are buying sim city that is not good but i always knew they werent to bright though. also pc numbers only do decent because the big name games like gta 5, last of us and god of war and other exclusives werent on this list. pc doesnt really have any worth while exclusives. sim city sucks but they buy it anyway to get ripped off and drm'd to death. consoles will lways be the masters and a matter of fact you might as well combine the ps3/x360 numbers because they almost basically the same except ps3 has more games. next gen we will have everyone mostly get the ps4 and the console user base wont be split as much.

The Wii outdid the DS, Vita and 3DS? How did that happen?
