So...this means you buy into vgchart numbers? You really are a 360 nut by trade, thanks for letting the world know of your hate towards a lovable and recognized brand.

What should be noted is not what the numbers are but the games being released by these companies. Its just amazing to see how quickly the ps3 went from 10 million away to a mere few millions, from no games to a wide selection of games despite arriving later at a premium price. Thats an impressive fact,now if gravitating towards an inaccurate sales chart floats your boat then enjoy yourself while you are at it.

Nevertheless game sales have been on the decline, i think the industry could use a fresh bash of consoles and a better pricing model for the platforms and their games.

@daclynk

Nintendomination? interesting considering wiiu's current predicument, but its good to know Nintendo still has a few loyal fans around, god knows what the world would be like without you guys around to support its ideal of what a next gen console should look and perform like.

3DS is doing great right now and the very same loyal fans who turned on Nintendo when it first release(the 3DS) are back to ride the sattle(nothing new here). Overall, all these companies are doing okay, considering how saturated the market has become and how weak the economy has been. For this i say, congratulations to all.

I love how people brag about/dismiss Vgchartz numbers depending on whether or not they are in their favor.

People will bash one console for having low Vgchartz numbers, but they will say the numbers are inaccurate if they are low for their preferred hardware.
beats not having new AAA exclusives.

I like games and u like sales.

Back to ur power ranger shooter. part 6.

Dat last of us will be great.

Also check xbox japan numbers.

Lol

Funny you say that because there are two(2) xbox 360 exclusives in that top ten list.

Sony fanboys are so adorable.
Reverent  +   805d ago
@Dread, this guy is no Sony fanboy. He's a pretty well-known PC fanboy in fact. I'm pretty sure he's just trolling.

A refurbished GameCube is outselling the Wii U.

And you think that's a good thing?

But I agree with you on 3DS numbers though.

but its still selling. wasnt the ps2 still selling more than the ps3 when the ps3 was out about 5 months? yea thats what i thought.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   805d ago
^^^Bringing up the PS3's launch, which was universally considered a failure, isn't really helping your argument (in fact it undermines it).
PeaSFor  +   805d ago
now if only nintendo had some creativity left in their soul..... instead of surfing and playing safe with their old IP.

cmon nintendo, put some effort and create a new IP you bunch of lazy "yes men"

Slay that 360 Nintendo!!!!!!!!!!!!
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   805d ago
To be outsold by both the DS and Wii.....jesus the Wii U is really in a bad spot.
lilbroRx  +   805d ago
Butttttttt....isn't Nintendo making money either way?

Whether or not the Wii is in the lead or the Wii U, they are still banking.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   805d ago
Yeah, that's the silver lining, but you honestly cannot sit here and believe that Nintendo wouldn't want it to be the other way around.

At this point in their life cycles, the DS and Wii should be the supplemental income producer, and not the Wii U.
dark-kyon  +   805d ago
xbox 360 games sell in the week

-BioShock Infinite
-Call of Duty: Black Ops II
-Gears of War: Judgment
-Halo 4
are serius dont get bored of shooting,i am sorry but the usa players are the worst taste in the world.
Reverent  +   805d ago
I wouldn't say the worse, but yeah, we definitely have a good number of airhead gamers over here, lol. Regardless, a good number of friends along with myself actually prefer JRPGS, RTS games, etc. The games where you can just lose yourself for hundreds of hours. Such great times.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   804d ago
Your right so many FPS/Shooter fans in the U.S. they are one of the reason why game makers are afraid to make new games aside from shooters. but there are still those who take risks like quantic dream and a lot of indies. But im still greatful because there are still many fighting games and hack and slash games like DMC, metal gear rising. any genre would do. shooters are really saturated I tell you. Its like the sidescrollers in the 8bit and 16bit era. RPGs will never get old and also survival horror. I cant wait for bethesda and shinji mikami's the evil within if you caught that news.

The 3DS is proof that software sells hardware. What an amazing year to be a 3DS owner.
