MikeGdaGod3900d ago

i'm as happy as the next person that the PS3 is selling well, but taking info from 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.

RealityCheck3900d ago

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.

barom3900d ago

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.

EZCheez3900d ago

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.

decapitator3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

Thanks for the tips guys. I really appreciate it. My fault and It wont happen again.

alcaponedya3900d ago

finally, some well deserved respect for the ps3.
where are all the bots?

yesah3900d ago

Lol 360 sold more then PSP? im happy ps3 is selling but i doubt thats true.

sonarus3900d ago

Regardless though ps3 still got outsold by 360 in the mysterious "other" region and by 2-1 too. Vgchartz is so sill lol.

InMyOpinion3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

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.

SWORDF1SH3900d ago

lol i dont usually like your comments but that was pretty funny.

Fat Bastard3900d ago

Jenzo, I must say that was pretty hilarious

"seeking relief from the alleged IBM infringements,"

open zone-----> that tab....
please dont ever get a ps3 or try anything new i doubt your brain could handle the stress

yesah3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

wtf how was his comment open-zoneish?

Edit: oh rofl you replyed to the wrong dude, i was wondering why you said "jack"

mesh13900d ago

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 ?

le killer3899d ago

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!

Harry1903900d ago

that's some brutal catching up.The race is on.

decapitator3900d ago

Agreed. By pretty good margins too except for the DS.

Jack Meahoffer3900d ago

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.


Gorgon3900d ago

Hey Jack, looks like you're really pisssed off...

tweaker3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

Jack, it has always been like that for the Playstation.

Gorgon3900d ago

Guess MS should start worrying about that GTA IV downloadable content they paid for...

SWORDF1SH3900d ago

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.

Jack Meahoffer3900d ago

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.

chaosatom3333900d ago

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.

cmrbe3900d ago

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.

Harry1903900d ago

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.

SWORDF1SH3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

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.

Prologue is owning every other game - this is insane

MURKERR3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

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

mirroredderorrim3900d ago

Agree and bubble for pointing out that it is indeed insane.

Silellak3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

"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.

PS3: 39,341
360: 30,631

Price cut isn't working xbots....

Obama3900d ago

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.

Kaz Hirai3900d ago

Just like the "console" itself! Just like Nazisoft's 1 year head start!
Just like Xbox Dead over the Christmas holidays!


Varsarus3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

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.

EDIT: this is for my fellow sony soldiers
