Without that holiday marketing budget, the Xbox 360 really underwhelms.
Skips  +   1040d ago
I see PS3 is catching up to 3DS. Just waiting for the day the PS3 drops to $199.99! Seriously though, 3DS and the PS3 are just OWNING!

God Of War selling more in 3 weeks than Tomb Raider on PS3 in 4 weeks.

I also do recall Xbox fans saying "Gears J will be SOOOO MASSIVE!!!! It'll outsell EVERY PS3 EXCLUSIVE in 2013 combined!!!!" lol But it barely beat out GOW.

Hack s slash game going head to head with a shooter? IN THIS GENERATION??? That's rare. Literally something only God Of War can do. lol

So the lames are comparing a slasher to a shooter still? And you continue to do so as if it's convenient towards some type of win for your fanboyism? Whats funny is Gears still outsold it. Now that should be what you're "lol" is
Skips  +   1040d ago

I said I RECALL. I never started it. -______-

"Whats funny is Gears still outsold it."

What's funny is that Judgement is literally THE ONLY EXCLUSIVE GAME the 360 is getting this year. You would you expect Gears sales to go THROUGH THE ROOF considering it's ONLY ONE exclusive game to buy. XD

But alas, the game bombed with the fans and people think it's ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. lol

Just FYI, not trolling kiddo, just check what buyers are saying about it....

My point being is, judging from how MAJORLY disappointing the game turned out to be. I honestly don't see LIFETIME sales for Gears J to be so

Also, Gears of War Judgement released a couple weeks after Ascension, and is the only major 360 exclusive to have come and will have come for a long time.

Do you honestly have to troll every xbox article.
G20WLY  +   1040d ago
I don't know if there's a personal history at play here, but I don't see his comment as trolling.

As an observation it's spot on - 360 has shown little consistency in it's sales, it trickles out of the stores all year and then sells like hot cakes when the masses of advertisements are aired. It's an amazing phenomenon and nobody can knock MS marketing for that.

I'm just stunned that people watch an ad on TV and decide to get one after all this time - you'd think they'd have made their mind up either way long ago, but it seems some people are highly programmable lol

Also, this isn't an Xbox article...

I remember these VG chartz about 6 years ago looked gravely different for the PS3 than it does these days..

funny tho... I am reminded of the phrase, "It's not about how well you start out, but how well you finish"

everything seems to be reversed now..

That is good to see the PS3 doing well, the same with the Vita. I would of never of guess that there would be more PS3 gamers with BO2 than Xbox gamers with BO2
SPAM-FRITTER-123  +   1040d ago
Ooooooooohhhh so VGcharts are accountable now that Sony are getting high numbers?

MS winning = "VGcharts are a bunch of Microsoft paid fanboys"

Sony winning = "VGcharts the number 1 truth in gaming numbers.

Stay classy N4G

@iGAM3R-VIII "I didn't even mention about the 720"

Did I?

Dude, 1 comment = 1 person =/= whole site... I get your point though, whenever preferred console does good numbers on chartz site, everything is legit, if not: LIES!!!

HammadTheBeast  +   1040d ago
Relax, VGChartz has always undersold PS3 numbers by about a million.
GribbleGrunger  +   1040d ago
You know, I keep seeing this quite childish accusation thrown about regularly on this site: The same people who condemn VGChartz when their console isn't doing well, will then praise it when it does do well ... I don't see much of that myself to be honest. What you people are doing is considering the millions of fans of a console to be one entity, when in fact what's happening is that different people comment when different situations pop up. There may be exceptions but very few.

You're seriously saying that PS fans are the only ones to do that? Both sides do it. In fact, all three sides do it when their favorite company is well represented in the charts.

PS3 is staring at Wii butt " I'm gon get you!!"

So wait - and this is according to Vgchartz - the Xbox has been in third place globally since at least 2010?

Crazy that the Wii U pulled better numbers than the Vita so far this year. Vita is actually starting to get games and Wii U had zero games released during January and February. I mean, I'm happy for Wii U, but really, shouldn't the Vita have sold more?
PopRocks359  +   1040d ago
The Wii U had a few recent releases. Some attest its recent boost to Monster Hunter and Dragon Quest. Frankly I think it's good to see both the Wii U and Vita outpacing their predecessors.
GamersRulz  +   1040d ago
hahaha, better by 3,274 units?! I would say they sold almost the same since VGchartz is estimations but if you want a real difference compare WiiU to PS3. Ps3 leads by 1,446,378 units, now that some real difference here!
dungeonboss  +   1040d ago
It's only a shame that no one buying a PS3 this year or last will be buying a PS4 at launch.
T2  +   1040d ago
@ dungeonb - I had to replace my ps3 for the first time since launch last year and im gettin ps4 day 1 ... Theres always an underfunded kid somewhere who will love a ps3

@ dungeon boss I had to replace my ps3 this year, and will be waiting in line to buy ps4 and kill zone shadow fall day one.

i have a PS3 slim, and i plan on getting PS4 day one this year. holy crap the games im getting for both systems this year

The Last of Us
The Puppeteer
Beyond Two Souls

Killzone SF

damn they're gonna bleed my dry lol
StreetsofRage  +   1040d ago
So if people are going to call for celebration every time these numbers come up than you must also acknowledge what this site has for total numbers. It has the 360 with a 1.1 million lead over the ps3.

You can't just pick what favors your arguments on the same site. You can't say these monthly numbers are correct, but that other one isn't.

Oh boy, I can't wait to see who replies with another wall of number crunching to prove their dubious point.

Edit: KwietStorm, nice rebuttal. lol! :)

Edit: Fabod86, don't care. My argument is simple. Either Vgcharts is all wrong or all correct. This ain't cherry picking where you get to pick the good ones and leave the bad ones.

So? Almost 700k difference in just 3 months, how long do you think it will take to reduce that 1.1m gap?
MadMen  +   1040d ago

You are right, what they do is, only respond to the articles that favor them

During the Holidays when US posted sales came up, it sure was quite.

But it swing both ways Xbox users do the same, just one bull$hit cycle of people being loyal to a company who doesnt even know their name
Bathyj  +   1040d ago
"Either Vgcharts is all wrong or all correct."

Im sure its neither. Its somewhere in the middle.
T2  +   1040d ago
Thats what I thought ... Much more likely than 100 percent one way
Hicken  +   1040d ago
Only they're not necessarily "all wrong or all correct." They can be more correct on certain numbers than others.

History has shown that VGChartz is MUCH closer on Xbox numbers than PS3 numbers nearly every time out. And the PS3 numbers have been LOWER each time; logically- foreign to you, I know- we can then deduce that, even if the numbers aren't spot-on, the PS3 truly IS ahead of the 360.

I know you're a blind fanboy and all, but even YOU should be able to see that NOBODY is saying the numbers are correct. What the ARE doing is using the site's history of inaccuracy to guess at something more accurate.

Your argument is simple, but it's also wrong on all levels.
G20WLY  +   1040d ago
You clearly used up your intelligence quota for the day elsewhere... Who are you even talking to, when you write, "you can't say..."?

Using your logic (I use that term loosely), consider this; what if those that believe PS3 lifetime sales are under tracked on this site also believe they are under tracking it on a monthly basis (where it is already shown as beating 360 sales)? Ruins you theory, huh?

You can believe all numbers are inaccurate and still celebrate, given that the inaccuracy comes from under tracking PS3. Do you see?

You wanted a response and I obliged. No ill will here. And I didn't quote a single sales figure - sorry to spoil your little game! ;P
iNathan  +   1040d ago
Ps360 with great numbers
Their strategy was much better than Nintendo with Wii... They sold shitloads at first but now its dead in water.

360 and Ps3 still selling at a low rate now but Console are really old i guess its normal, most people is already waiting for next gen.

Xbox 360 and Ps3 should surprass 80m both this year putting them at an amazing 160m WW, thats is a very very healthy userbase for both Console wich have an outstanding game catalog.

Great Job by Sony and Microsoft, Next Gen should be Fun.

Interesting numbers. I'd remind people not to take them too specifically; they're just estimates for people like us the look through.

I'm happy to see Tomb Raider pushing units, I loved that game. And Ascension doing the same is pretty cool too, I can't wait to get my hands on that one.

Sonys new president turned everything around for the better & i applaud him.. Though the vita isnt where it could be just yet, it will get there once more games, price cut, & PS4 shows what that baby can really do.. Good job.. MS needs to rethink thier strategy for nx gen because i highly doubt multiplats & media apps will help em that much.. PS4 development will be much easier now & ppl want GAMES! not to skype with their grandparents over the TV when it can be done on tablets n phones.. Thats just my opinion..

I have nothing to say about nintendo.. Handheld market is fairing well but the wii u will be ancient tech when nx gen gets here.. It can barely get multiplats now so nx gen will be worse if PS4/720 are equipped with specs that have 8 or so gb of ram.. Wii u only has 2gb of ddr3 & 1gb of it is for the OS! leaving only 1gb of ddr3 for the games.. No comment on them because they have great devs but multiplats aint happening there

According to these sales numbers ( and for a year 2011. and 2012., PS3 should overtake X360 a long time ago. But WTF is going on?
Karpetburnz  +   1040d ago
according to VGChartz PS3 has been 1-2 million behind Xbox for the past 2 years, yet PS3 has been outselling Xbox by at least 1 million for the past couple years, When is Sony gonna update their official sales figures?
chukamachine  +   1040d ago
I'll be surprised if there will be loyalty for next gen consoles.

Because people did not wait for PS3, Because of being a year late they bought the 360.

Not sure what will happen this time.
T2  +   1039d ago
I could def see people picking up ps4 in holiday season instead if xbox doesnt release too but im sure ms thought of that too
