wii U slowly cacthing 360.

Though what does it matter when the next xbox s being annouced in may.

PS3 showing an other steller week. But as I say everytime i wish Last Gaurdian and versus game out not jsut cause you would see a huge boost in sales (imo) but cause those were two games I bought the ps3 expecting to get them at the start.

By the by I also know these are not accurate numbers but they show roughly how the market is.
3-4-5  +   959d ago
Wii U get's a huge sales jump with 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, Legend of Zelda....

That will sell them a million Wii U's right there.
TheLyonKing  +   959d ago
Is great that that will happen, I will be picking them up :) but I really want Nintendo to invest in some mature new ips made by the first party guys. That would be awesome!
scissor_runner  +   959d ago
If pandora tower sells and last story along with the new x2 game sales then yeah.
Helping guide team ninja and working with platinum games are pretty big. We also saw a lot of talent poured into retro studios as of late.
good to see pc up there. Beats wiiU software sales.

Another Nintendo and Sony hardware domination week. Nothing to see here folks. :)
MasterCornholio  +   959d ago
WOW no one is buying Need for Speed on the Wii U.

Thats just shameful after all the work that Criterion put into the game which resulted in the Wii U version being the definitive one.

We should pick it up in case it becomes ultra rare!
lilbroRx  +   959d ago
Who heck would want a half year old port for $60 when the other version are available for $20 and with better multiplayer? A version that the devs announced they wouldn't be bring other DLC too on top of that before it even released.

People who want to play the game and don't own a 360 or PS3? They exist... I'm one :)

It's a shame they're unlikely to bring future DLC to the Wii U, but it *did* launch with the Ultimate Speed Pack DLC included, which helps. And to be honest the only other DLC that I'd be interested in is the Terminal Velocity map pack (still sucks though).

I purchased need for speed wii u and am loving it! problem in uk is the big retailer Game is not stocking it???? i had to buy it online through eshop which I am sure is the problem for many here in the UK, not sure about Europe but based on the numbers on miiverse its selling well overall
Nevers0ft  +   959d ago
Nowadays I just automatically order from Zavvi or Amazon - you get the game on time and invariably cheaper than RRP. Didn't know Game weren't stocking it but I've spotted it in other high street stores, the Miiverse community is nice and busy and I don't have any issues getting a race online... It's a shame if it hasn't sold well, it deserves success.
Zechs34  +   959d ago
Less than a million in 2 weeks for something with the name Gears of War should be considered abysmal around here...

Especially considering the dwindling numbers in sales that almost every title experiences after launch.

Kind of disappointed at God of War sales too. We will see what happens.

Im glad to see Luigis Mansion, Bioshock, and Tomb Raider selling so well though!
Bathyj  +   959d ago
I said the other week, its amazing how close PS3 is getting to catching 3DS numbers. It seems to be getting even closer. Good work.
Skips  +   959d ago
Agreed, just imagine how sales will look when it drops to $199.99 lol
Gamer1982  +   959d ago
PS3 top selling console even though PS4 announced, 360 selling 40k less yet 720 has NOT been announced.. No wonder MS are being quiet..
scissor_runner  +   959d ago
With no backwards compatibility I'm sure the ps4 will also suffer at the hands of the ps3. Right now there is nothing for me to get excited about on the ps4 launch window.

Even I would buy a ps3 before a ps4. Especially with all the 30fps capping you sorta have to ask what is the point this shouldn't be an issue.
mcstorm  +   959d ago
Good to see the WiiU numbers coming up. I hope Lego City hits 1 million as it as a very fun game and ide love to see a 2nd one.

PSV slipped a bit this week but it is plodding along nicely and im sure Sony will have some big names to throw at it come E3.

Glad Halo 4 is at 8 million showing it is still a big name for Microsoft and I am shocked BO2 is at 11 million on the 360 but I do have this for the WiiU and I was suppressed at how much fun the MP is but Halo is still the winner for me on this.

Also good to See Gars and God of war selling well as well as BioShock and Luigi's Mansion.

Looking at what I have put above it looks like everyone has had a good week.
Software_Lover  +   959d ago
Good games sell, no matter what system they are on. Congrats to all chart toppers.

I'm not gonna look at the charts myself because, frankly, I dont care, but I will congratulate the leaders on a job well done.

But I am reading that Tomb Raider is doing very well, lol

Yeah im not a big Halo fan but i know many that love it to death and we all know its mp is one of the best around so good to see it holding up well and im interested to see what next gen has in store for it.

Gow and Gears both deserve steady sales and numbers and will ultimately sell millions.

3ds as much as i criticize the Wiiu i must say 3ds has a huge variety of good games and is good to see it doing well (actually always the chart topper)

My ps3 is doing great and selling wonderfully even after ps4 was announced that speaks volumes and Sony analysts did good by announcing it early and figuring it wouldnt hurt ps3 sales. Expect ps3 to still sell well even when Ps4 is released. Sony will make sure They have exclusive ps3 games to entice new buyers and keep old ones.

Vita isnt doing great but its doing better than it initially was which is good to see.

360 also has decent numbers thnx to N.A.

"while sony's Tretton confirm ps3 sold 77million "

LMFAO so now saying " I think" is undeniable confirmation?

"I think we’re at 77 million sold right now " - Tretton

You pathetic sony fanboys crack me up.

trying to convince yourself or something?
Hicken  +   959d ago
You're lookin as desperate as Jamal and Hingle up there.

The fact that he even brought it up is confirmation enough that, at the least, they're THAT close. He even says as much.

"We look at the market in worldwide terms, and every market is extremely important to us. 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."

Come on, man. You've gotta do better than this.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   959d ago
Whoa! The 360 guys are going crazy up in here.I guess sales really are all they have left.I mean, *had* left.

on topic: Nice to see PS3 doing so well.

PS3 and 3DS
flawless victory for sony and nintendo
wingman32x  +   959d ago
Good numbers for 3DS and PS3. It's pretty neat to see the PS3 actually making gains with the PS4 looming. Sony repeatedly shows it's ability to give a system legs.

Good to see 3DS units still moving. Nintendo is simply not playing around with the 3DS. The first party software coming out this summer and fall is diverse and plentiful, and third parties are returning, too. Bit by bit, we're seeing DS franchises make their return. I'm very content with Nintendo's effort in the handheld front.

Nice little increase for the Wii U. It'll be interesting to see how the system sells once the big boys show up. We'll know then if its lower sales were simply due to lack of quality software or something deeper than that.
vigilante_man  +   959d ago

4 Products = 257k Nintendo
3 Products = 207k Sony
1 Product = 90k Microsoft

Not including Sony PS2 hardware which still sells..

Will Microsoft ever release a hand-held/Tablet?
