Wow 360 and ps3 are in fire. You wouldn't think next gen consoles are needed with the demand for current gen consoles
MooseWI  +   561d 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_Darkness  +   561d ago
Wow, the pS3 has been doing really well currently. Seems like Sony will catch up in no time at this rate.
AsimLeonheart  +   561d 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.

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.

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.
Theyellowflash30  +   561d 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.

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

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.

Hicken  +   560d 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?
kikizoo  +   561d 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.

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.
STARS  +   561d 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.
Snookies12  +   561d 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-Namikaze  +   561d 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.
Eddie20101  +   561d 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.

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?

Yea, Nintendo need to drop that Wii U price like badly, because for it to be outsold by the PSP is abysmal. ;)
Bathyj  +   561d 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.

chrisarsenalsavart  +   560d 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 .

can someone tell me what PC sales mean?
Godchild1020  +   561d ago
Those are the retail games that have been sold worldwide for the PC platform. I'm sure the PC has more sales than that, due to digital sales from Steam, Origin, Amazon, Uplay and many other sites that let you download games straight to your computer.
GABRIEL1030  +   561d ago
Great sales of Vita in Japan . I'm glad because the console is nice, maybe a world drop price and the release of games like Final Fantasy X hd, Gran Turismo and killzone may catapult the device.
SDF Repellent  +   561d ago
Wii U. smh

Both PS3 and Xbox are doing great.
Clarence  +   560d ago
No the PS3 is doing excellent the 360 is doing okay. If the PS3 was below 100K every week you wouldnt even include the PS3 in your statement. TBH the PS3 is smashing the 360 in console sales as well as software sales.

That's nothing new though. How else do you explain the PS3 selling 70m+ in 7yrs while it to 360 sold 8yrs to do this.

So much for the year headstart and the old PS3 owners only buy movies comments.

BLow  +   561d ago
I'm a bit confused. If these numbers are close to real, how in the hell is the PS3 selling more software than the 360 if the 360 has more systems out there according to the same website. I really thought that PS3 gamers buy no games so how is this possible. Hmmmmmm...Interesting. Well I guess that myth can be put to rest. I remember the sprint and marathon quote. Ring any bells. It's funny how things got quite after times have changed. This is more fuel for the fire...haha.
