Wow 360 and ps3 are in fire. You wouldn't think next gen consoles are needed with the demand for current gen consoles

MooseWI1289d ago

I feel like most consumers don't know that next-gen is even out there right now, but maybe I am just assuming wrong.

Army_of_Darkness1289d ago

Wow, the pS3 has been doing really well currently. Seems like Sony will catch up in no time at this rate.

AsimLeonheart1289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

Nice to see Sony hardware doing great as especially PSVita. At least now Nintendo fanboys cannot say that Vita is selling just as poor as Wii U to make themselves feel good about their purchase. LOL! Whenever there was a discussion or article about Wii U selling badly, Vita's sales were inevitably brought up by them.

Edit: Trunkz Jr just proved what I said; although it was in a positive sense this time since Vita has started selling.

@Army: PS3 caught 360 months ago worldwide.

nintendo fans say the wii u is doing fine and that sales will dominate the chartz for wii u when the big exclusives are out in november. the sales are abysmal because only nintendo fans are willing to overlook all the flaws and spin everything thats a con about the console. the sales will continue to drop weekly as time goes by and might only flatline when there is some software to play over the next 8 months. i see the wii u selling less than a million more consoles by november and i believe that the xbox 360, ps vita, psp, ps3 xbox 720, and ps4 will all outsell the wii u over the christmas season.

i wish them all the luck because its going to be hard convincing people to get a wii u instead of a ps4 and xbox 720 this year and the next few years. nintendo fans say the wii u is amazing and theyll tell you at every corner that they are having fun (lol, trying to lie to themselves and others) which is just a euphemism which means they bought a rubbish console and are forcing themselves to like a garbage product.

Trunkz Jr1289d ago

@Dylila

Ok there fanboy.

You can doom and gloom the Wii U all you want but everything you said could apply to the PS Vita, and now with time the Vita is slowly making a comeback.

Theyellowflash301289d ago

Actually it's going to be very easy. MS will bleed you dry with Xbox Live and pricey add-ons like they always do.

The Wii U will have a spectacular Library of games by the time the PS4 and Xbox 720 come out. Plus it will be much cheaper than those two systems. I understand you hate Nintendo, but don't try to mince numbers with your own trolling statements.

imt5581289d ago

PS3 long ago outsells X360. Every week PS3 global sale number are higher than X360's for a long time.

imt5581289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

Go PS3!:)

AsimLeonheart1289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

@Theyellowflash30

What spectacular library of games?? Would you mind giving us confirmed release dates for any AAA exclusive titles with mass appeal coming to the Wii U before the end of 2013? Everybody would definitely like to know especially Wii U owners.

Same rules apply to new consoles as they do to beer and Star Wars movies.

Always more.

I thought VGchartz were unreliable

Hicken1289d ago

We can use their trends of unreliability to glean some measure of truth.

Traditionally, they undertrack PS3, so we know the actual number is likely to be higher by a fair margin. Likewise, they're unable to track digital sales, or the majority of European nations.

Nobody's believing that their numbers are EXACT or anywhere near it, but we CAN guess at what REAL numbers are, given various other sources, like NPD and each company's own releases.

I know what you're trying to say, though: that Sony fans only want to believe the numbers now that it shows their company in the lead. But as stated, if they do, indeed, have that, we can guess- based on previous inaccuracies- what the numbers might ACTUALLY be.

Wow I don't understand how 360 does so well in the USA compared to ps3, but worldwide it doesn't. Why?

kikizoo1289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

You have to ask why it does so well in the us ! (ms = us, + medias).

Ps3 should do even better worldwide (but 50 k more than 360 each week, start to be good now).

By the way, do you remember : "bububut the ps3 don't sell software"....now, it's first for hardware, and software.

Zechs341289d ago

IMO, the games. We know USA is CoD and Battlefield (FPS) world. X360 sells the best in the US because that's were its KEY and MAIN demographic is. Not that there is anything wrong with that. They play to their strengths.

In the beginning of the gen, Microsoft tried to get plenty of Japanese devs to support the console with exclusives and the like to gain that mass market, worldwide appeal. It did not go the way they planned, unfortunately.

STARS1289d ago

Because Americans love to buy American products? Apple comes to mind as a premiere example. Anyways, hope the Wii U takes off soon, the more competition in this next generation market, the better off us consumers will be in the long run.

Snookies121289d ago

To be fair, Apple opened up a lot of chains outside of the US. Japan in particular is fascinated with the iPhone for sure.

Minato-Namikaze1289d ago

@snookies, looks like sony is trying to get the Japanese market back with the Xperia Z though. All reports having this thing selling really well. I'll be picking one up if we ever get a U.S. release date.

Eddie201011289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

Most of those products aren't even made in America.

Microsoft and Apple are just barely american company when the majority of there product and some of the software are produce over seas. Even much of there customer service for the US is handled over seas. When they bring the majority of there jobs and production back to the united state only then should they be considered a true American company.

AngelicIceDiamond1289d ago

Your boastin about about site that tracks hardware sales.

PS3 and 360 are both above 73 and 74m consoles sold. Shows the credibility of VGChartz and people continue to fall for it.

These numbers are clearly not right so why boast?

Look at Wii U, WOW ... another fail for nintendo just like GameCube !

Edit @ Baylex:
I mean in terms of console sales !

Baylex1289d ago

Hey! GameCube was a huge console!! much much better than wii or wii u... those are just stupid consoles... and I own a wii!!

LOL_WUT1289d ago

Yea, Nintendo need to drop that Wii U price like badly, because for it to be outsold by the PSP is abysmal. ;)

Bathyj1289d ago

Ps3 outsold 3ds and vita almost caught xbox?
That's surprising numbers. Sony have to be happy with all the good vibes they're getting lately.

Just can't understand why they haven't dropped the price on both platforms yet. Cmon Sony, you can't see price cuts and good public will make a difference. Maybe they're just holding that bomb for e3. It would make a bigger splash then for sure, but i just think they could be riding months of good sales between now and then.

Zefros1289d ago

ps3 sold more no?

He said VITA almost caught the xbox. I read that wrong at 1st too, lol

Derekvinyard131289d ago

I thought vg charts was unreliable ?

chrisarsenalsavart1289d ago (Edited 1289d ago )

what i don,t understand is this
last week xbox360 total sales were at 74.5 million and this week they are at 74.7.
knowing xbox360 only sold 83 thousands this week it is clear that vgchartz doctored the figures to keep the 360 ahead. it s not the first time i notice that, somethin smells very fishy indeed .
