The launch of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue propelled PS3 sales to over 150,000 this week in Europe - more than even DS and Wii.
Even more law suits..
Story updated. Ignore the above comments.
i'm as happy as the next person that the PS3 is selling well, but taking info from vgchartz.com means absolutely nothing. they always have things wrong. we can't get excited because they predit PS3 the winner this time. we can't have it both ways.
Please don't take this the wrong way Decapitator, you're a great contributor to this site but maybe you should review your overall submission process. I've never seen a contributor changing linked stories on the fly as much as you do.
it's true that vgchartz aren't 100% accurate but it's the closest thing we got for europe.
As for the US we have NPD and Japan I think we have Famitsu. Europe doesn't have anything as far as I know.
Stop submitting stories to pending that don't even belong to the correct article.
Every time you do this the first few comments make absolutely no sense and confuse people.
Thanks for the tips guys. I really appreciate it. My fault and It wont happen again.
finally, some well deserved respect for the ps3. where are all the bots?
Lol 360 sold more then PSP? im happy ps3 is selling but i doubt thats true.
Regardless though ps3 still got outsold by 360 in the mysterious "other" region and by 2-1 too. Vgchartz is so sill lol.
FYI the "other" region refers to Narnia. That's where the VGChartz staff get their numbers from. After smoking a whole lot of jazz tobacco.
lol i dont usually like your comments but that was pretty funny.
Jenzo, I must say that was pretty hilarious
"seeking relief from the alleged IBM infringements," yeah right, they in for the cash.
open zone-----> that tab....
please dont ever get a ps3 or try anything new i doubt your brain could handle the stress
wtf how was his comment open-zoneish? Edit: oh rofl you replyed to the wrong dude, i was wondering why you said "jack"
hey guys i just heard the psn was hacked buy hackers and there was a sace were psn accounts were stolen by hackers why has no 1 posted this news about the psn beaing hacked ?
and is hounded like a leper! sony by rights should already be up in first place. not lanquishing in third! although it's great news for sony, it's still not the slaughtering it should be. look at the uk on there, sony won't be catching microsoft soon there. the 360 is well established there, and lots of people have them. if the rest of europe had been the same, things would been a whole lot different.
anyway, like jack said, microsoft and nintendo are seriously eating into sonys market. sony will never have another console that will dominate like the ps2 did.. facts are facts, it just wont happen!
that's some brutal catching up.The race is on.
Agreed. By pretty good margins too except for the DS.
It took the 70% market share leader last generation 16 freakin months to FINALLY sell more units than the new comer.
Must be so proud. Too bad you won't have close to 70% market share this generation because MS and Nintendo are eating Sony's lunch.
MS will end this generation with a nice chunk of new market share. That was their goal and they got it to the dismay of the Sony fans posting fanboy garbage in this gamer zone forum.
THE FAVORED PLATFORM FINALLY WINNING AFTER OVER A YEAR! STOP THE PRESSES ALL THE SONY FANS CELEBRATE! WOOOHOOO IT ONLY TOOK 16 MONTHS! YAAAAY!
Hey Jack, looks like you're really pisssed off...
Jack, it has always been like that for the Playstation.
Guess MS should start worrying about that GTA IV downloadable content they paid for...
you jus made me laugh jack lad. you kno precisely JACK SH#T. Do you think the ps3 as jus started to lead the xbox in sales?? do you pnly see sony fanboys on here??? theres one thing thats worse than a fanboy and thats a blind fanboy like you. xbox fanboys are jus as bad as sony fanboys but xbox fanboys have nothin on the ps3 at the moment so thats why they aint about so much. 2006 and 2007 the xbox fanboys ran wild. its only fair that ps3 fanboys have there time now. dont expect it to die down soon jack lad. the xbox fanboys deserve everything they get.
While I'll agree with that fanboys are bad on either side you don't do much to prove you aren't one of them calling people names.
I get on here and see Sony fans celebrating a empty win and point it out and now i'm the fanboy?
Try to put things into perceptive. Sony was supposed to win. It shouldn't have taken them over a year to do so. Stop celebrating like you did something. You did nothing.
And by the way just because Xbox fans "went wild" last year doesn't mean Sony fans have free license to act like morons this year. Two wrongs don't make a right.
sony came back from the dead to kick microsoft in the nuts.
fanboys aren't celebrating because sony won, but because it brings an to loads of xbox fans to shame that slaughtered sony in the beginning and the naysayers.
and Have you ever thought that SONY doesn't care about getting the shares, it's microsoft that cares.
Sony wants to make a good system with good games, that will last for some while since technology is progressing so fast. Tmr you might have games that run on quad-core computers only.
lookup the PS2 vs Dreamcast history then lookup the PS history. You will see that history is repeating itself. They only unknown variable this time is the wii.
What did i say that was wrong? that the race is on? was i wrong?did i ever say something about Sony winning? Did i? Between you and me,who should be sent to the open zone? Be careful now,only one bubble left to answer. Be wise.
im jus sayin how you came across jack. what you jus said was utter bs. you sound like youre bitter about it. have you seen the sale totals lately? sony are a million and a half infront in japan, 1 million behind europe. this is being launched over a year later than the 360. all sony have to work on is america. and theyve been leadin the xbox in the last few months and probo this month too. this is major if you like it or not. this is why i called you blind. then you make remarks about sony fanboys as if xbox fanboys dont exsist. which makes me think that youre so blind you are blinder than stevie wonder, with 2 pirate patchs on sat in a dark room at night with no moon in the sky. i admit i favour sony more than ms but at least i can stand back and see the situation better.
EDIT: btw i dont think this should of been approved. its basically last week vgcharts posted with a different headline.
Jack has no weiner
Prologue is owning every other game - this is insane WHAT ARE YOU DISAGREEING WITH? THE FACT THAT PROLOGUE IS OUTSELLING EVERYTHING OR THAT THAT VERY FACT IS INSANE? REPLY YOU COWARD!
sony if you really want obliterate the competition sooner rather than later theyve dropped the price on you and your still trouncing them fight fire with fire i say
Agree and bubble for pointing out that it is indeed insane.
"If they did, they wouldnt have gotten a 360."
Hi, 360 owner here. Still consider it a perfectly logical decision. In fact, it brought me back into console gaming after a few year break.
Thanks for your Open Zone-worthy comment, though. Always glad to see that the rules of N4G can't keep a good console war down.
UK PS3: 39,341 360: 30,631 Price cut isn't working xbots....
I have a feeling that the 360 will never outsell ps3 again in Europe. I am sure the ps3 has something up its sleeve to counter gears 2 in Dec.
Just like the "console" itself! Just like Nazisoft's 1 year head start! Just like Xbox Dead over the Christmas holidays! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
Very true, it's dead in Europe far as I'm concerned, there is like...3 exclusive ps3 games that can counter geow 2, being Resistance 2, Killzone 2 & MGS4.

PS3 outsell Wii. LOL LOL WHERE ARE YOU BOTS???? WHERE ARE YOU?
Yea right PS3 fanboys!!! We have 3rd person Unreal Engine shooter Gears 2!!! The best game ever!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH
BOTS, Gears 2 is going to get TRASHED.
Not 2 not 200 NOT 2000 but TWO MILLION The ONLY country that it is really beating the 360 is Spain (a country that lets terrorists just walk btw) What a loser......truth hurts 360 still ahead Try buying games, the 360 outsells the PS3 7 to 1 in game sales what a bunch of EURO ZEROS You better worry about that Muslim invasion you have on your hands and not how well a game system sells!
At varsarus 1.3 :Wow Man, looking to the list you post is really amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I enjoyed every word on that!!!!!!!!!! PS3 RULES!!!!!!
so can you explain who let the world trade organization building collapse? and can you explain who invade Irag?
So much for GT5:P not being an actual game, and so much for that 360 price cut. Those numbers are pretty impressive.
Wait til MGS4 comes out.
That's because you can pick up a ps2 with a game bundle for as low as £55 in some places... that's only a little more than 1 game for PS3!
ps2: "No, I just don't fear death" XP XD hahaha
I have a feeling the ps3 is going down that same path...
A price would ensure Sony's PS3 to consistently challenge the top spot in hardware and software sales in Europe.
Is not even needed
Would most definitely pick up sales
decap how come your first comments are usually irrelevant or based on a totally different story?
Console Weekly Total
(No words needed!!!) ;-D
Why have I been banned from commenting in the Gamerzone! :( Anyway, there is no question now that the Gran Turismo series is a system seller - without question.
getting ready for gta ya see ps3 ftw
Be very afraid. Its done for. Your console is dead in the water. The horsemen are almost here. Your time is up. Time to meet your maker, xbots.
After messing up the first year, Sony has come up really really aggressively and really took everyone by storm. I think the bluray win helped them gain a huge momentum and they are backing that momentum with a stellar lineup for 2008/2009. I guess this may turnout the year where PS3 does narrow xbox360 install base lead.
Ken for President of the Universe!
i have no faith in the numbers but i do believe GT5:P put the PS3 at #1 for a couple weeks.
Imagine the sales when MGS4 hits.
They said GTP wouldnt sell consoles.. Silly gooses.. ITs a demo and its selling consoles.. I wonder whats gonna happen when MGS4 and then the Real GT5 comes out.. EEE scccaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrryyyy
Thanks very much Gran Turismo 5: Prologue :)
Is just a typical 10 year old fanboy comment, 95000 (estimate) sales in a week is still pretty impressive, it was always obvious that the Sony brand will remain strong in the "console race" but credit to microsoft, even with the hardware issues the sales are still up there and are now synonemous with games consoles which was their main aim in the first place. Its all good for us gamers, competition means quality
the 95k sales is achieved with a pricecut and that the sales will drop in the future, again. The 360 is dead. Against the horsemen, there is no victory. And the horsemen are almost upon you. It starts at 29th April.
