ps3 sells the most worldide as a console because its the best with the most exclusive titles and 3ds sells the most as a portable system because its very cheap with some good games. ps vita needs a price drop because it has good games but will definitely need a lot more games as sony drops the price.

the wii u is a failure because nintendo released a garbage system and its lacking games and need lots of it. the wii u might be able to sell another million by years end and might manage to sell about eighteen million by the year 2020.

no pc games in the worldwide top ten software sales section like 99 percent of the time because most pc gamers like to steal games. its good that all pc games will be on consoles like ps4 and next box so developers can actually make money. i like to support good developers that works hard to make the games i like so i dont think its fair to steal their games. i like sequels to certain of my favourite franchises and new games from my favourite developers.

i also dont mind playing games at 30fps at 720p 1080p or whatever because even though i would prefer 60fps for all games, 30fps isnt a big deal to me. one a game is good its good and 30fps isnt a deal breaker nor is 720p. i undersand some pc fanboys love to talk about console gamers being budget gamers but they play on cheaply built systems that runs their games marginally better than 7yr old consoles. they talk about console games costing more but their gaming rigs costs way more than consoles and even with cheaply built pcs that are still more expensive than consoles they need to upgrade parts to even run certain games. pc gaming is for suckers

most PC gamers buy games digitally and vgcharts doesn't take digital sales into account
Xyla  +   1033d ago
excuses excuses. most pc games are stolen more than they are actually purchased by legitimate pc gamers. a lot of pc gamers are thieves and they dont buy any games and thats why there are barely any pc exclusives and pc games in top ten sales charts. all the proper pc exclusives are either on consoles or coming to consoles. the remaining pc games are so crap that devs dont even bother bringing them to consoles. pc gamers cant name any good exclusives on pc that a lot of console gamers care about but console gamers can name a lot of exclusives on consoles.

i game on pc so i know how inconvenient it is. its massive, its loud and it lacks proper exclusives. it runs a few games exceptional now over consoles but those games have been surpassed by killzone shadow fall in alpha. i cant wait for the ps4 a smaller and more quiet gaming system with unified services and features not available anywhere else.

so ill go from playing a gaming system that is (L)22.3 x (W)10 x (H)21.7 inches and cost over 4k to a system the ps4 that is way smaller and cost around 450quid that plays more exclusives and can outperform most pcs available for gaming

70 % of pc games are sold digitally, and vgcharts does not account for that. If pc games are so unsuccessful, how come diablo 3 has sold more than gears, god of war, halo 4, uncharted etc. how come starcraft tells millions of copies, skyrim over 5 million copies, why crisis sold more as a pc exclusive than combine on console. I could go on and on

Ravenor  +   1033d ago
The counter point to obnoxious PC gamers always spouting their specs or how their rigs can play any game at a framerate higher than consoles, is you.

You're clearly either incredibly misinformed or just a bad and incredibly sad troll. Is it a terrible and lonely existence you have? Does the sadness claw at you day and night and the only reprieve you find is by trolling?

Either way, I've already wasted enough time on someone without the capacity for rational unbiased thought.

Read and think before you speak please. Steam and Origin have alot of sales and as someone else said they are "digital downloads vgcharts doesn't take digital sales into account"

Also slot of people mod there consoles.

GoW sales are pretty low, another failed ps exclusive game.
Where are those Sony boys now,why don't they buy those great exclusive games, I guess they are just talk.
IRetrouk  +   1033d ago
I bought GOW, you dont honestly think that every game sells to every gamer do you?
jessupj  +   1033d ago
I'm busy buying all the other great Sony exclusives. I'm spoilt for choice.

You on the other hand had 2 games last year and it looks like this year you will have 1. Quite pathetic really.

I literally can't comprehend why anyone would be a MS supporter.

Luigi sucking up the competition like a dyson

look at the difference in sales between defiance on 360 vs ps3. That'll make any dev wanna go Xbox exclusive

guess we know which GOW sold more

Not really. It'll make multiplat devs keep selling to both.

Can't compare the two GOW. Different audiences. I bought Gears Of War and not God Of War because I enjoy shooters more than hack and slash. And yes, I have both consoles.
Army_of_Darkness  +   1033d ago
Look at the difference in sales with defiance?! Lol! What does that even mean?! Lol! Maybe, just maybe some Of us such as myself don't really care for an mmo type of game... also try to consider our "other" gaming options as well:-)
AkatsukiPain  +   1033d ago
The lack of new exclusives will lead to that. The ps3 is well balanced with gamers buying all kinds of games. If u noticed Alan Wake sales werent really good at all and is prolly why microsoft stopped investing in triple A exclusives due to bad sales. Dont blame them but they never were the type of corp to take many risks if they weren't sure it would lead to successful sales.
cyberninja  +   1033d ago
Sales don't equal quality genius, and if you think they are I feel bad for you.
PS4isKing_82  +   1033d ago
Seriously? What did u expect? That's what most Xbox fans play are shooters so its no surprise at all. Xbox is a shooter console. #dealwithit.

As for me, I'll continue gaming with ps since they offer more choice and variety in the genres of games. PS4life.
Skips  +   1033d ago

Not really much of a difference kiddo.

It's actually pretty pathetic on Microsoft's side considering it's the ONLY 360 exclusive to be coming out this year.

You'd expect 360 fans being able to go out and buy ONE EXCLUSIVE GAME. XD

Anyways... We ALL know which GOW actually DELIVERED to it's fans, and didn't turn out to be a MASSIVE disappointment. :D

Amazon Buyers: 4.2 / 5
GameStop Buyers: 8.6 / 10

"look at the difference in sales between defiance on 360 vs ps3. That'll make any dev wanna go Xbox exclusive"

Yet PS3 got the best version at launch and 360 got the worst. lol

I'm talking about how smooth the launch was by the way, not graphics. 360 had the most problems, PS3 had the least, and PC was in the middle.

i don't care about vgchartz and their numbers are made up like always and i have said that since my first day on this site
but now let me point out your Hypocrisy
you said this in another vgchartz sales rumor topic :
***"No it hasn't dude. For gods sake this is Vg charts on N4G. No need to say more. "***

and now trust their numbers and they are right ?!

Belking  +   1033d ago
My numbers don't come from Vg It's funny how Vg charts is only wrong when Xbox numbers are higher. GOWA and Gears sales are disappointing
compared to the ones before them. If that bugs you then that's your problem.
Ezz2013  +   1033d ago
lol go read my comment history ...since i come here
i said vgchartez numbers are wrong no matter ps3 numbers are higher or not
on the other hand are the one doing flip flop when ever you like the numbers from them or not

like i said i don't care about what vgchartz at all
i just loved to point out your hypocrisy
also where are your numbers coming from then ?! since neither MS or Sony showed those games numbers yet

Defiance had gotten my interest as of late. It's a very bold move to connect both the tv with this game. And having a ever changing world based on the show sounds like a great idea. I read some great reviews on this game. I might give it a try. I'll take the 360 version since its a MMO and the more players the better.
MysticStrummer  +   1033d ago
It's a great game. 360 had the worst launch, but from what I've read it's improved a lot since then.
LordHiggens  +   1033d ago
Luigis Mansion looked fun...but I never would have thought it would sell that many copies...

That's casual gaming for you.
Realplaya  +   1033d ago
What's so casual about it. Is it because there is no blood and gore? Is it because it is not a FPS? Is it because it is fun and entertaining? I it because it's on a Nintendo system?
khowat  +   1033d ago
Dude no need to devour him, most of that comment was somewhat positive, somewhat...
LordHiggens  +   1033d ago
What defines a casual game for me is one that appeals to the whole of the human population both child and adult. It is able to be picked up and played at any time and is most enjoyed on short intervals. By that reasoning I consider Luigis Mansion to be a casual game.
LordHiggens  +   1033d ago
Wow you present a logical case and even compliment the game and get barraged with disagrees...real mature mates. Just happened by this article once more before bed and wow...really?
Realplaya  +   1033d ago
I didn't disagree with you myself and wasn't trying to go hard at you. Hope I didn't come off that way. I didn't take it as you hated the game either for feeling it was casual. I just wanted to see what you felt was casual and you gave your opinion and I respect it.
cleft5  +   1033d ago
Glad to see Defiance so high up there, but wow Nintendo is killing it with Lugi's Mansion.

So pissed at PS3 owners right now (which I am by the way, the only current gen console I own is a PS3). 530,000 sold for Bioshock Infinite after two weeks? THAT'S IT? What are these people buying instead? Answer: nothing. God of War is sitting at about a million after a month on the market. Same with Tomb Raider. MLB The Show and Metal Gear Rising aren't even charting in the top 30 anymore.

I don't know if a majority of PS3 owners don't have much money to spend on games or what, but it's a damn shame that Bioshock Infinite is only at half a million right now. The game is fantastic, and a shoe-in to win GOTY from at least one website/publication (it'll likely split awards with The Last of Us). And it comes with the first Bioshock! A former GOTY winner and a (likely) current GOTY winner on one disc! What more could you want?!

Buy this game. It's fantastic. That goes for 360 and PC players too!

I hope E3 shows some amazing sh*t for vita.. Its doing better but still bad because the rest of the globe wants that price drop.. The whole world wants more games (localized ones for me).. Its got great games to choose from but damn i want some of what japan has.. I cant read it so it would be pretty hard for me to play a JRPG
