it's vg soooo...
xHeavYx  +   588d ago
Funny, VG Charts used to be so precise when Xbox was on top, now they are all fake numbers, times change...
ohiostatesman  +   588d ago
VGchartz has already been confirmed to make up their own numbers. All their numbers are guesses.
xHeavYx  +   588d ago
@ Ohio
Here is a fact, you like to troll on every positive Playstation article with no facts to support your claims. How long do you think your new account will last?

I agree with heavy , looking at your account comments in the last couple of minutes alone all you do is troll get a life ohiostatesman and also good luck with your prediction of Deep down coming to the xbone sony actually helped make the engine for the game its never gonna be on an MS console.


why are you even here commenting where you not meant to be leaving this site because its only sony fanboys? your comment below right?

"so i guess it's true. n4g is ps land.i see no point coming back here anymore i guess. being an industry fanboy isn't fun on such a narrow sighted site. #115"

Sony help develop ff15 for PS4 now its coming to xbox one too. So your theory doesn't hold up.
black0o  +   588d ago
by the end of the day we all know for fact that Ps3 it out selling the x360 since 2008 worldwide

Proof: x360 sold over tons millions before the ps3 even launches and yet Ps3 is on top NOW
porkChop  +   588d ago
VGChartz is usually fairly accurate. It's somewhere within +/- 5%. Not too bad.
Foxgod  +   588d ago
Funny, vgchartz was never credible when the ps3 wasnt on top, and now you are saying they are credible....
Spenok  +   588d ago
Read his comment. He is saying they are NOT credible. He is saying they were credible when PS3 was not on top. And now are not.

Unless he is trolling... I can't tell to be honest.
Foxgod  +   588d ago
By counter argumenting he implied the opposite.
Otherwise he wouldn't have counter argumented it, its called psychology
TekoIie  +   588d ago
This is a circular argument. All we can say is VG is fairly accurate and accept that these numbers are not 100% fact.

Hicken  +   588d ago
He is saying they are no more credible now than they were when 360 was ahead of PS3. However, Xbox fans- like Foxgod- treated VGChartz like it was an infallible source.

Now that the PS3 has surpassed the 360- and VGChartz has finally gotten with the times- those fans suddenly want nothing to do with the site. Now they like to be the ones to say, "It's only a rumor, VGChartz makes up their numbers, it's all fake," and so on.

That can't be that hard to see, can it?
T2  +   587d ago
@foxgod - philosophy is the discipline of debate and countering a premise... I think you want philosophy , not psychology
Foxgod  +   587d ago
That may be so, but it was a reaction to his reason to create that reply, which is psychology.
Prophet-Gamer  +   588d ago
VGchartz is notorious for overtracking 360 and undertracking PS3. If they have the PS3 leading, there's no way for them to fuss the numbers enough.
xHeavYx  +   588d ago
Almost a 2 million difference. The new dominance starts on Nov 15th though.
Glad to see TLOU also selling good
FamilyGuy  +   588d ago
Dat Last of Us Sales number...

Well deserved
Brazz  +   588d ago
take my note! this number is below reality, i dare say last of us is at least in 3.5 million number. plus, if ya take digital in count, ya will have TLoUs in the 5 million or more sales.
T2  +   587d ago
Yes its a different world ... I wondered why tlou sales were that low ... Will be interesting to see gta numbers compared to all disc formats and in the future say gta6 ... Will sales numbers drop altogether ?
Brazz  +   588d ago
Ps3 making amazing job! 100 million in life cycle isn't a impossible dream.
aceitman  +   588d ago

PSP has a lot of piracy issues so I am not surprised it sold so well.

torreth1  +   588d ago
What do you mean? You must be saying the millions of people buying psp must be using it for piracy benefits. Thats a heck of a lot of pirates.
iamnsuperman  +   588d ago
Piracy affects sales of a system. If someone can buy a system and get games for free it makes a system very valuable. Sony said themselves the level of piracy was "sicking" in 2009.

Glad to see TLOU doing so well. Rightfully deserved.

Also glad to see 3DS and PS3, my two most played systems this year, at the top!
scott182  +   588d ago
I'm playing through The Last of Us again.. Still the best game of the gen for me.
sparta76  +   588d ago
Glad ps3 is doing well. The last of us deserves the sales, best game I played this gen.
Nice to see god of war still in the top ten.
HeyImBen11  +   588d ago
TLOU had 3 million sales in the first month, confirmed from Sony. It has to be much more now :).
pyramidshead  +   588d ago
Last of Us still on top lol christ. I'll be adding to that number hopefully SOON.
1OddWorld  +   588d ago
Next year XB1 will grab three spots on the list Titanfall, Halo and Call of doody.

Question is what games do you guys see taking top spots next year and on what console?
AWBrawler  +   588d ago
Mario Kart, Smash Bros, and Wii Fit U
mcstorm  +   588d ago
That could be an good question as all 3 have big names out come next year and I think all 3 will have a big year in terms of the home consoles. 2013 and 2014 is a great time to be a gamer as all 3 have must own games.
GordonKnight  +   587d ago
@ mcstorm

Agree. all three are must have systems. Just like last gen. The hardcore games fighting over the PS3 & 360 sales is funny, because it's all the calual gamers buying them.


mcstorm  +   587d ago
I find it funny more with the Sony fan boys at the moment as all they talk about is how much more powerful the ps4 is over the other 2 yet this is not what the PlayStation brand was about at the start.

For me this year is about Pikmin 3, wonderful101, sonic, Mario 3rd, Zelda windwaker hd, dk, Pokémon x, forza 5 and KI. That's what im spending my money on the back end of this year as these are the games I want the most and could not give a crap what any fan boys think as I play the games and consoles I like the Same with sports. I live in the uk but would take ice hockey over football any day and play roller hockey as I enjoy playing it more than football.

We are all different and have choices because we are different but it seems people on here can't get that.
T2  +   587d ago
I see destiny on there ... Both spots and battlefield plus cod sadly .... Gt 6 likely , halo,
Rodney25  +   588d ago
Jeez PS3 making 3DS earn those sales this late in it's life cycle, extremely unexpected.
Jls1  +   588d ago
I thought cod sold better on 360 I know its not by much.
nevin1  +   588d ago
eridc3301  +   588d ago
I get so happy when I see ps3 doing so well.
bjmartynhak  +   588d ago
God of War: Ascension is not bad at all.
I'm playing it right now!

I got Tomb Raider bundled with my second PS3, it helped the sales for sure

TLOU totallly deserved! Surpassed MGS4 as my GOTG
torreth1  +   588d ago
OK now, something is wrong!! Didnt Wii U just launch? Even Grandma's old Wii sold more hardware, and where the hell is the software sales for the Wii U?!!!!! Wait!Thats right. Since its a next gen console it must release in November, because there is absolutely no way PS4 has already sold 1,000,000 boxes without being on the market yet and Wii U has been out for almost a year and only sold 1,242,000.

The Wii U hasn't sold 1,242,000 in nearly a year. Since launching in 2012 it has sold nearly 3.5 million units (says so in the article). Also the PS4 hasn't officially sold 1,000,000 units. It has over 1,000,000 million pre-orders (which is still impressive). Pre-orders do not always equal sales (it is an indication of popularity).

Edit: The Wii selling more than the Wii U is a worry for Nintendo has Wii sales really slowed down after Christmas 2009 (last big increase in sales) and, the Wii U, is a new console. Also, even more of an issue, if some people really do see the Wii U as an extension than a new console (gamepad thing)

torreth1  +   588d ago
OK.For 9 of the 11 months its been out! And I will also give you credit for the pre-order comment to a point. Because, If there are over 1,000,000 pre orders now two months before launch,I seriously doubt that on release night there will be less than 1,000,000 consoles sold. The question will be how many will be left over to purchase for the people who show up without ordering in advance.
badboy776  +   588d ago
Gears Of War the only 360 exclusive didnt even make the List just sad!!!!!!!!

iam happy they are doing well
= more great games for us
T2  +   587d ago
Sony software numbers creeping up there ... Publishers will notice. If preorders are indicator , not releasing on ps4 could be suicide
