to have contributed to each one of those platforms overall success.

I think of myself as an equal opportunity gamer.

@ skarlett:

"Nintendo will turn things around at their e3 conference."

nintendo isn't holding an E3 conference, so no they won't... if i am not mistaken, they're taking a private, closed-door approach at E3 this year, which is the wrong way to go, imo.

abzdine1562d ago

the 12GB PS3 is performing very well it's cheaper than 360 so no surprise PS3 is doing well.

Belking1563d ago

legend9111563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

Cool sentence bro. Either way, we'll see in about 20 days. (:

Outside_ofthe_Box1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )


It seemed to be pretty accurate to you before...

I wonder why it's not accurate anymore... lol

dale_denton1563d ago

according to you vgchartz is only accurate when xbox is ahead of playstation though right?

Dee_911562d ago

Yall act like people cant change their minds.You'd be surprise how much I learned and change my perspective in 130 days. :)

Utalkin2me1562d ago

This is why i love this site, roflmao.

Knushwood Butt1562d ago


Always good to start the day on a funny.

On another note, when is that site going to accept that PS3 has outsold 360 in lifetime sales?

danitanzo1562d ago

Why can't you just be happy with the Vita, and not turn it into a bad thing...

kenshiro1001562d ago

Its only accurate where the 360 is concerned, right?

nirwanda1562d ago

You do realise that this is a yearly sales report and thats a whole year of sales for the vita and the wiiU only came out in November

nirwanda1562d ago

Ooops its ytd and not financial year your right the wiiU or vita ain't doing that great.

This first comment is one of peace yet war still rages down below. You guys never cease to amaze me. Everything I'm reading here pretty much comes off as:

"My company sold more than yours so I win and you suck!!"

Grow up you guys... please.

xJumpManx1562d ago

Its not that they cant compute it. They are just so insecure that they need to rip on the others consoles.

Guitardr851562d ago

@ Skarlett

I'm trying to b ea good guy and let you know ealier rather than later...but....Nintendo isn't having an E3 conference this year

Nothing good will come of this...

just-joe1562d ago

You're aware they're still gonna be there as well as have a "Software Showcase" as they've already confirmed.

B-radical1562d ago

MS and Sony about 75-80 million and nintendo 100 millionish. All 3 did great this gen everyone be happy!

Kal-El-0011562d ago

how the fuck is Xbox have most overall sales in the lifetime over PS3 but it doesnt even sell in Japan the largest gaming market in the world which has the most people in the world too. crazy impossible! so sony was last this GEN wow

TheLyonKing1563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

ps3 nearly 1 million a head of 360 on the YOY update not bad. Infact both 360 and ps3 numbers are very good considering they are two titans in their twilight years.

So Kudos to both companies and yes VG chartz not accurate and all that noise but damn near close enough for what we have

OlgerO1563d ago

What sorcery is this. A comment that is happy that both gaming consoles do good, I think i will have to lay down for a moment.

Muerte24941563d ago (Edited 1563d ago )

that as of march 31st, Xbox 360 was @ 77.2 million. VGchartz has xbox 360 @ 75.5 million only being off by 1.7 million. Now Sony's released their numbers putting them @ 80.4 million. VGChartz has them @ 74.6 million being off by 5.8 million. How can Sony still have that many ps3 on the shelf and retailers are still asking for more shipments? That 3x the amount they were off by Xbox360 sales. {(1.7 x 3) = 5.1} So VGChartz is saying that Sony's overshipping and there are 3 times as many ps3 on store shelves (worldwide)than xbox360. I like how Media Create JPN numbers completely contradict that statement.

VGChartz is trash. Even with all the evidence showing ps3 ahead, they still have Xbox360 with a lead. Saying their undertracking ps3, is an understatement. They should be ashamed but they're not.

Courtesy of NeoGaf proving 80.4 million ps3 sold and ps2 sales aren't included

blackmagic1562d ago

I agree that PS3 has pulled ahead of the 360 but the 80.4 million number is definitely ps3 and ps2 numbers added together for the fy2012.

In this interview on Feb. 21st, Jack Tretton says "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."

The PS3 has obviously sold more than 0.2M consoles between Feb 21st and Mar 31st but it hasn't sold 3.4M in that time period.

TheLyonKing1562d ago

whats this! numbers and backed up by a source and a vaild unbiased comment that contains facts. Bubble for you sir
