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.

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

Muerte2494  +   1004d ago
My problem is Microsoft announced
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

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.

I agree and whats really strange is at the beginning of this gen I said by the time the next gen starts the Wii will have around 100 million in sales and the PS3 and 360 will be very close and be on around 75 million.

Im glad all 3 have done well and I expect the same when the new consoles hit the market later on this year and once Nintendo hit the big name games the WiiU sales will pickup. I see all 3 getting to 75+ million in the next gen.
MadMen  +   1004d ago

WiiU is dead my friend, I can see 35-40 million total at most, and that is not considered a success esp in comparison to the Wii.
mcstorm  +   1004d ago
@Madmen Ok so is the Vita dead then? Also Was the PS3 dead? The 3DS must also be dead then.

The WiiU is new and people are still getting big name games for the current generation consoles.

Once the big names start coming out the WiiU will have some of its big named games out and sales will pickup.

It will be the same with the PS4 and Next Xbox. I don't think any of them will fly out from the start it will be a steady line until 12 to 18 months of being on the market looking at how the current market is.
Dmagic  +   1004d ago
lol no it wont be the same when ps4 and new xbox drops people are so hungry for new systems its going to sell millions and be sold out all year i cant wait got my 1000$ set aside for both! wiiU is going to sell worse than gamecube.
Minato-Namikaze  +   1004d ago
Ps3 is over 80 million. Its gonna be closer to 85 million
mcstorm  +   1004d ago
@Dmagic You think a £400 console will be sold out all year? I think a lot of people will be shocked when they see the sales of the PS4 and Next Xbox not as high as they are expecting over its 1st 12 months on the market.

What people need to remember is both Microsoft and Sony are going to support the 360 and PS3 when there new consoles are out and as long as games like COD, BF, Fifa ect are on the current gen consoles a lot of people will not upgrade there consoles for 12 to 24 months after the new consoles are out.

Yes people are waiting for a new gen but that was said about the PSV and look what happened there.

We are still in recession and people will get as long as they can out of there current consoles as a lot of people are trying to save where they can.

so that alone means most games might not have a remote play function... i mean sony stills hasnt done nuthing exciting with the remote play.. so why should developers..

nnodley  +   1004d ago

Actually, no I'm pretty sure that remote play on ps4 will work with the hardware and developers actually don't have to do anything. Which means all ps4 games will be able to be streamed to the vita.

PSV-PS4 remote play is hardware enabled indeed, it has been said multiple times, that's not the problem, the problem is that developers (and so publishers) can decide to turn it off, which obviously they will when they are selling the game on both platforms.

That said, I'm not disagreeing with you, I also think most games will be remotely playable, but just a heads up, probably not EVERY game.

The Nintentrolls must be having a difficult time seeing the Wii U struggle to match the Vita right now. Their favorite hobbie (telling us gamers who only care about fun that the Vita is trash and is going to die) is more challenging when their Deity, "Super Mario", cannot lift his new home above the vile, Vita. Such a distraction. ;)

Wolfbiker  +   1004d ago

yeah and hes comparing a manufacturer's home console to anothers handheld, two completely different markets in two completely different situations. I'm just pointing out that Nintendo owns the platform that is more appropriate to make the comparison to a Vita.
Minato-Namikaze  +   1004d ago
Fine fair enough, lol
Apollosupreme  +   1004d ago
Fully aware but what does that have to do with the Vita? No more than the Wii U has anything to do with the Vita.

Sony isn't going to drop an investment because another company has been more successful. If companies operated like that you would have one soft drink, one fast food joint, one truck, one car, one airline, one everything. All that matters is whether they're profitable and if they're not then whether they forecast that they will be profitable in the future. For profit companies operate for profit and for not children who have no intention to invest money in their products and have nothing better to do than fantasize about imaginary pissing contests.

Financially, what Nintendo is doing has nothing to do with Sony. All that matters for Sony is what Sony is doing. If the Vita makes money then it will keep being produced. It already has a sizable enough install based to make developers a profit and so really at the end of the day it comes down to is Sony making money or do they think they will turn a profit in the future? Anything else is as useful as the hot air fanboys across the board like to spew on a daily basis around here.

Which console's predecessor sold so badly that it wouldn't have surprised anyone for that console's maker to leave the console business?

Which console's predecessor sold so well that it shouldn't have surprised anyone for the next gen sales to be down, particularly at a high launch price?

Which console was cheap to manufacture and yet outsold it's competition handily?

The answer to the last question will give you the winner in sales this generation.

A man has tried and this is just an excuse to treat multiplats like exclusives and trick dumb COD players into buying 360 because they think Netflix is so hard to use with a controller. A man doesn't see how anyone can't hate Xbox these days the way they treat their customers.

The numbers on VGChartz are way off for PS3 and 360. 360 according to many on VGchartz is undertracked by over 1 million and PS3 is estimated to be under tracked by over 1.5 million and the shipped and sold gap between the two is basically non existent now.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   1004d ago
Unless PS2 has sold amazingly well the last year or 2, PS3 needs adjusted way up. A man believes the last shipment numbers would need PS2 to sell at least 3 million for the gap to not be gone completely by now.

the gap has been gone for a long time now as far as I know. PS3 should be in front of 360 by a margin.

Wow PS vita ahead of Wii-U in terms of hardware and software sales. and its not actually bad numbers. Haters don't have anything good to do. They forgot both Wii-U and PSV is just new to the market. PSV just reached 1 yr and wii-U below 1yr. If PS3 can stand up after a disaster launch why can't the PSV and Wii-U? I didn't know haters are fortunetellers. Maybe i'll ask them when is the exact date of PS4 launch.

Dear griever137,
What is the difference between Vita and WiiU in the hardware section (according to the given data)?
Answer: 11863
What's the difference between Vita nad the WiiU in the software section?
Answer: 526553
Try comparing Vita to the 3DS and see whom are they (data) in favor of.

I own a Vita and these numbers doesn't amuse me in the slightest. Let's add to this the "optimistic information about the forecast sales of Vita in 2013 which according to SONY should be 5 milion. Let me rephrase that...5 milion PSP and PS VITA combined sales in 2013.

Nevertheless I will continue to arrange "Meetings for PS VITA owners" in different cities and will continue to support this platform.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   1004d ago
Im not sure what your point is but my comment is about how ahead PSV with the Wii-U considering its a new console "regardless" of the difference. 3DS everyone knows its selling well. How many grandpas, grandmas, little kids and casuals you think are there in the world compared to us "core" gamers?? they will always outnumber us thats the reason Wii is so successful and so is the 3DS. But I still prefer the Vita over the 3DS anyday and I own a vita too and will support it no matter what. Its a great partner to my PS3 and upcoming PS4. But I think i see your point that your quite dissapointed with the sales. I too am hoping it will reach PSP numbers in time. we just need to give it more time like the PS3 in its early years. Thats why im so annoyed by the doom and gloom haters that the vita is still new and they bash it already. Sony said there will be many reveals about the vita in E3. so lets wait. Cheers for you mate for supporting the vita
