Umm anybody notice ps3 now ahead of 360 in global sales...surprised I hear no one talking about that
xHeavYx  +   958d ago
PS3 has outsold the 360 worldwide for a long time now
Minato-Namikaze  +   958d ago
Cause its been that way for a couple months now, VG is just now catching up.
dedicatedtogamers  +   958d ago
When PS3 pulls ahead, the goalposts move.

Total number of exclusives was once touted, but then PS3 caught up and the goalpost moved.

Then it was the Metacritic score of those exclusives. Again, PS3 began to dominate here and the goalpost moved.

Then for the longest time it was total sales. Now that PS3 caught up here, too, the goalpost will change to something else (like total number of online accounts, or sales in the US, or something like that).
abzdine  +   958d ago
cause it's no surprise for anyone anymore :)
360 and PS3 both great consoles, but PS3 offers more value for the money.
fuzzyLogix  +   958d ago
It's largely pulled ahead due to the PS3 Slim MKI and MKII. PS3 Phat is an awful machine, really regret buying one. I wonder how many other people agree and replaced their Phat with a Slim?
RiPPn  +   958d ago
@fuzzyLogix: I like my phat, it is backward compatible, has 4 usb ports, and a memory card reader, it's been a reliable machine!
GameBanger  +   958d ago
Sofware is more important thant console sales anyways.. 360 is winning in that department overall.
Minato-Namikaze  +   958d ago
Wow, is that really only 2 days of sales for a new IP? Absolutely love that game.
dedicatedtogamers  +   958d ago
WOW! I'm actually very surprised that TLoU is selling so well.

It certainly deserves it, but...yeah, I'm just surprised.
himdeel  +   958d ago
TLoU is a system seller.
TheLyonKing  +   958d ago
Great sales by naughty dog and to Sony being up 21% on this week. So crazy for such an old console!

now i understand when Sony were saying that PS3 will live 10 years. It's entering its 7th year and it's performing stronger than ever and PS4 is around the corner!!! This is great for PlayStation financials it will bring us more games cause Sony will invest more and more!

solidworm  +   958d ago
Get used to these figures, I see the next gen replicating this gap from the off. Well done ND. TLOU is a masterpiece and possibly the greatest campaign ive ever had the honor to play.

WiiU is dead...
mushroomwig  +   958d ago
That's what they said about the 3DS.
Theyellowflash30  +   958d ago
Wii U is far from dead, Nintendo has a truck ton of games coming out for the Wii U starting in August and through the holiday season.
hollabox  +   958d ago
Yeah Disney has allot of games planned for the Wii U in August if your into those type of games. I guess Splinter Cell Black is planned for August 20th but I doubt people will be lining up outside the door to buy an Wii U and Splinter Cell Black.

On the positive note, Mr. Satoru Iwata finally realize he needs to diversify Nintendo's software portfolio. Read reports he's growing the team and looking into new IPs to develop, so next E3 might be interesting if Satoru Iwata is true to his word.

ziratul  +   958d ago
@hollabox You do understand how much time is needed to make new IP with new team? Years....
Theyellowflash30  +   958d ago
Hollabox, August for Nintendo is Pikmin 3. That game is going to sell a lot of Wii U's if Nintendo markets it right.

Splinter Cell is just a side dish of Wii U owners. If you're going to argue against the Wii U, at least know the line-up of Nintendo's first party games.
hollabox  +   958d ago

I've posted the Wii U lineup in the past for August, just didn't think Pikmin was worth mentioning. I will admit I've never played or had the inclination to play Pikmin, not even on my Gamecube.

With that said Pikmin looks and has always looked way too soft or casual for my taste. From what I've seen is Pikmin really any different than what Disney offers? Pikmin is a colorful kid game which fine if that's thing, I say more power to you but its not for me. With that said I still don't see August release of Pikmin, Disney titles, and Splinter Cell being System sellers. I'm talking about 30,000 units or less in the US at best.

Any who I was actually praising Nintendo for atleast acknowledging they need to expand their portfolio. If they show something decent for my age I might consider Nintendo again in the future, I just grew out of most games Nintendo offers today.

Wii U is really looking horrible, still not dead - its near death actually.
Shnazzyone  +   958d ago
Nope. Not even close. It's just at its slowest point. As long as mario Kart 8 and smash brothers is coming, Wii U is gonna be just fine. Anyone saying otherwise is exercising wishful thinking.
Eyeco  +   958d ago
Because Mario Kart and Smash Bros really helped the N64 and Gamecube
Shnazzyone  +   957d ago
Smash Brothers was a new IP and Yes, Mario Kart 64 did help n64 as it was a launch title. Different times man. Now those are two of nintendo's biggest ips. So yeah, wishful thinking.

People are telling me: Wii U will BOOM in 2014? 2 years after release?
hollabox  +   958d ago
Really? You don't say? Of course I know game development can take anywhere from 12-24 months or more depending on scope, quality, budget, and team size. The E3 comment is not an release date, companies do showcase their titles sometimes a year or more before they are actually released.
moodgamer  +   958d ago
Playstation 3 with a price cut on Christmas the sales will skyrocket. The same happened with Playstation 2, especially in Europe with families having tight budgets. MS needs to do the same. Congrats ND, TLOU is amazing.
Ginesis  +   958d ago
Damn...the Wii is beating the WiiU. Time to right the ship Nintendo or it's going to sink.
EcoSos3  +   958d ago
Damn...the psp is beating the vita. Time to right the ship Sony or its going to sink.

See what I did there.
Ginesis  +   958d ago
@EcoSos3 I'm not sure what you were trying to accomplish because I agree lol the Vita needs some help too! Maybe PS4 will be that help

Also when it comes to home consoles that just isn't suppose to happen. Your new version should be your best seller.

EcoSos3  +   958d ago
I was joking, I like my vita but there's nothing coming out until fall. Which is sad really.

Same things where said about the 3ds n look at it now.

Price cut that's why something that both the Vita and the Wii U need ;)

Wii U doesn't need a price cut, it's already received many during the year. It needs games.

it is.

CoolBeansRus  +   958d ago
Right, according to sales people do have an interest in it. Sony fanboys dont have an interest in it.
T:"VITA good jerb. Wooo."
N:"Whats that up there?"
T:"Oh, they dont count, wooo Vita"

LOL. Oh ignorance, it must be bliss.
Eyeco  +   958d ago
It goes without question really, Nintendo has had a death grip on the handheld market's balls for over 20 years if there was a massive dip then that would have been unusual.

Honestly when you look at it it's no surprise on the Vita's position, the reality is whether the Vita had a ton of support or not , it was never gonna outpace Nintendo, a company that's pretty much dominated the handheld market since 1989 and with the advent of IOS, Android it's obviously gonna having a hard time.
YoloSwag  +   958d ago
You're right, but everyone remembers the doom and gloom surrounding the 3DS at first. Now that it has outsold the PS3, Xbox360 and Wii combined due to one game (albeit for one week), I think some positive attention is due.
thehusbo  +   958d ago
sony are killing it. that 360 redesign did nothing as well. LOL
vigilante_man  +   958d ago
The US is propping up the 360 sales. In the rest of the world its not so good for them. Expect the Vita to get new life closer to the PS4 launch with talk of PS4 games played on it.

Amazing how 3DS sells so much on a game I never heard of. Good for them.
SoapShoes  +   958d ago
According to VGChartz, it really didn't prop it up at all since it was like 6 more than the PS3 even in the U.S.
Williamson  +   958d ago
Wow only 2 days for the last of us! Ps3 and 3ds doing really well.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   958d ago
Jesus ****ing Christ at those 3DS sales.

last of us=system seller
MNGamer-N  +   958d ago
Wii game in the top 10, wow. Wii outselling the WiiU because of the low price of the console. 3DS is officially a successful console, probably on it's way to topping the all time charts like the DS.

Sony doing very well with the PS3 right now, PS4 is looking very strong coming up, and Vita's numbers are up and looking good.

Glad to see them both doing well.
LOL_WUT  +   958d ago
Wow look at those 3DS numbers! That could be the Wii U if only Nintendo knew how to play their cards right *price cut* ;)
PopRocks359  +   958d ago
Get over it. Nintendo's not going to bother cutting the price for a system barely anyone knows about.
Sgt_Slaughter  +   958d ago
Imagine if Nintendo pulls the Wii U around like they did the 3DS...

Holy crap, Nintendo and Sony are going to be in the Top 3 for most of the 2014 sales I can tell you that much.
microgenius  +   958d ago
wow ps3 outsold 360 almost 2 to 1 this week

Three things stick out to me, 3DS holy crap. Everyone on earth will own one soon. Happy for strong TLOU sales, good for Naughty Dog and people really love that Minecraft.
killerips   958d ago | Spam
greenlantern2814  +   958d ago
TLOU is a great, great game. Ps3 will keep on going strong if games of this caliber keep coming.
3DS also doing well but Nintendo never really has a hard time selling hand helds. Wiiu ouch, not dead but could use a price cut, and bigger hard drive. I know wiiu owners say that it is fine but perception is a powerful thing and people see 32 gb and scoff. But the 3ds got through a rough start to, guess will see this fall, but thAn again that's when it's real competition arrives Xbox1 and ps4
