I didn't even see the numbers on the left. That makes much more sense haha.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   726d ago
Agree,

Nintendo not having "those games" will definitely be a negative.

I don't play them but lots of people do, obviously.
Army_of_Darkness  +   726d ago
Sony is ending strong with the ps3 and beginning strong with the ps4. I would say it's playstation domination all over again.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   725d ago
@ Army_of

Why did you need to tell me this? As if it were a reply to my post.
Is this suppose to be another troll the "Fanboy" attempt?

I think I have said plenty of times that I want to buy a PS3 after a price drop and a PS4.
black0o  +   726d ago
and i think ps3 will keep this up since B2S,GT6 .... TOX2 are a system sellers
ZBlacktt  +   726d ago
Saints Row IV, my god so overrated. I just stopped mid way to take a break. So meh.....
Software_Lover  +   726d ago
Most are up, good job (even though I hate numbers).

Wii-u is down????????
Bathyj  +   726d ago
19% jump? Whoa, what brought that on?
GenericNameHere  +   726d ago
Madden 25, FFXIV A Realm Reborn, and JoJo's Bizzare Adventure.
Inception  +   726d ago
And don't forget: a price cut. $200 is a sweet spot for PS3 and it's massive library.
Game4life  +   726d ago
no price cut just now model but I suppose you could say its a price cut if you want
Inception  +   726d ago
@Game4life

Well i consider that new model as unofficial price cut. But i think sony will announce official price cut for japan on this year TGS. Sony will keep their momentum as high as possible, especially when PS3 got tons of high profile games on this year alone.
Game4life  +   726d ago
pretty sure those numbers will keep going up from here.I think the holiday rush may come a little early for playstatkion this year. Theres a good stream of content only on ps3 so it makes sense.

sept
gta v
puppeteer
kingdom hearts

october
battlefield
beyond
rain
AC 4

November
cod
watch dogs

decmber
Gran tursimo 6

unknown when but coming this year
final fantasy x hd
Ratchet and clank

Personally i think that alone is a good selection. Thats the bigger stuff too
Bathyj  +   726d ago
Man PS3 just keeps on giving, like its dad and its grandad before it. What a strong lineup so late in its lifecycle.

After playing the demo I'm looking forward to Puppeteer. People might not have thought it from the lack of hype but that game it gorgeous. Really amazing lighting.

And Rain has had me intrigued since it was revealed. Hoping that turns out great as well.

Puppeteer is pretty cool.

Takes a bit of getting used to at first as you need to control 2 characters at the same time (I guess that was covered in the demo, which I didn't play), but once you get the hang of it the game starts to flow.

Really great art direction.
inf3cted1  +   726d ago
lol vita.
chadboban  +   726d ago
I understand Wii U's still awful numbers but shouldn't the Vita's be up considering that the price cut for Europe and North America was last week?
MightyNo9  +   726d ago
It needs another price cut.
sherimae2413  +   726d ago
you should take note that this is from until august 31 there are no noteworthy releases at those weeks, we will find out this september
due to killzone, rayman, fifa, valhalla knights 3, and atelier and some notable indies too...

but inspite of that its still got up by a decent in NA from 4k every week it goes up by 10k every week and in EU from 7k every week it goes up by also 10k at that week
chadboban  +   726d ago
I think Killzone will do decent numbers, but the title I'm really holding hope for is Tearaway. I really want it and Puppeteer to do well in sales because they look so damn unique. I especially love the stop motion paper aesthetic effects that Tearaway has. Hope those games sell well.
sherimae2413  +   726d ago
yes yes! please buy tearaway too, im going to buy it at launch too its been a long time since ive seen a game with aesthetics like that the last is paper mario which is also great ^_^

i really hope tearaway sells at expectations ^_^
brew  +   726d ago
PS3 over 360 nearly 2 to 1. Woah.
Knushwood Butt  +   726d ago
Yeah, but is it just me or has that site actually adjusted the overall lifetime gap down again?
abusador  +   726d ago
Sony killing them lol cant wait to see ps4 numbers when itbdroos haters will be crying tears of agony.
Knushwood Butt  +   726d ago
I seem to remember reading an article that said Rayman Legends was selling way better on the Wii U.

This site has the PS3 higher.
aceitman  +   726d ago
@knushwood this does not have the numbers for rayman it wasn't out till the 3rd, so next week and how are u saying the site has the numbers higher on ps3 when it shows one week till launch.
Knushwood Butt  +   726d ago
This has figures for Rayman:

aceitman  +   726d ago
@ knushwood ok I see what u mean, even though it doesn't show the numbers it shows up at a higher rank meaning it sold more gotcha. its weird it didn't make top 20 , did it not sell well on either platform , but feocart is right it sold more in the uk .
Knushwood Butt  +   726d ago
Yeah, overall sales seem to be low.

Maybe it will fare better in NA.

Rayman has never been big in Japan.
Gamingsince75   726d ago | Spam
Feocart  +   726d ago
But that article only detailed sales in the UK.
Worldwide, the PS3 version sold the most (it was a good move by Ubisoft, as Rayman has always had a larger userbase on Sony platforms)
IcicleTrepan  +   726d ago
I have all three systems and I'm getting Rayman on Wii U.
DarkHeroZX  +   720d ago
I got it on the Vita. Destroyed the game.
Kingthrash360  +   726d ago
hope vita picks up more.
