and if thats the case the actual sales of wii sports should be the same as the number of consoles sold, same with gt5:p they said its almost 1M pre-order, did they count the pre-orders? if yes then again gt5:p sales should be around 1.5 million. i dont know how the hell they do their counting but it looks fishy also with their hardware!


isnt there any other company that releases hardware data for europe?
thanks in advance

hazeblaze3894d ago

I do believe they count the copies that sale with consoles in their numbers. Regardless, the numbers are very impressive for all the Wii titles and GT5:P.

The PS3 is really dominating the 360 in software sales in Europe... even if you subtract the GT5:P sales (although the sales are MUCH closer then).

I also don't see the Wii sales slowing down at all, low tech or not. Unfortunately, the only devs that it's making money for is Nintendo. This should be a very interesting gen.

tordavis3894d ago

PS3 is a weak 2nd to Wii. PS3 is getting dominated.

cmrbe3894d ago

At least the PS3 is doing better than the x360. Dose anyone on this site care about the wii?.

thewhoopimen3894d ago

Who cares if Wii is dominating... its like saying Tonka Trucks are outselling Cadillac Escalades.
Like the comparison, ones a toy and the other's the real deal.

thePatriot3894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )

than ps3, but not for long. Yet ps3 manages to sell about double the software.
edit almost.

deeznuts3894d ago

Like comparing a juicy prime dry aged ribeye to McDonalds Happy Meal. One's strictly for kids, the other isn't.

masterg3894d ago


A yeah ago the PS3 was getting dominated by the 360.
Now it's the other way around.

Don't get me wrong. The Wii is doing great, but the only console improving month by month is the PS3. So lets see if the PS3 isn't dominating the Wii in one year. My bet is the PS3 will be getting 1st places from Xmas 08 till it's retires in 2011-12(ish).

shine13963893d ago

actually, the wii is increasing it's lead yes the ps3 is doing far better then last year, but it's still a distant second, I reckon the software/hardware sales will rise like hell fire by this time next year...I don't think it's really the price, cause I can't see a bundle anywhere close to me that puts the wii at less then the price of ps3...damn those bundles...

i now know why MS has been so hush hush

that price cut didnt work

PS3 has crushed them in software sales and for a software company thats got to hurt


yea yea yea

i know its VGcharts

eagle213894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )

And still know. They just hope their "following" stays interested long enough to not switch sides before the 720 comes out.

And once Sony is $299, even the Mart will have one (shhh: it must be Ceramic White though) :)

I know it's vgchartz, but if you have followed the history of their moderators, they are swallowing their pride to report

TheREALHarryEtTubMan3894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )


LOL @ 3fixme fanbots quoting how amazing software sales are on the 360. PS3 software sales are barely behind every week in worldwide sales because the 3fixme fails.

PopEmUp3894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )

throw the fixme in the dumpster on the way out today btw POG probably is thinking of doing this while he read this lol

Real gamer 4 life3894d ago

the wii is going to be the new ps2 in terms of sales.

thePatriot3894d ago

but I think there wont be one console on top like ps2 did last gen. wii and ps3 will sell like ps2 in the end. and xbox? well... better luck next gen.

green3894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )

It's obvious for now that the casual gamers have already choosen which next gen console to buy,and it sure ain't looking like it's the PS360.

edit: If you add the software sales of the PSP,360,PS3 and PS2 you still will be 400,000 short of the wii.

Corrupt3894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )

with the Wii, you can have a PS3 or 360 to accompany it for games like COD4, Assassin's Creed etc. However, for a 360/PS3 owner, there's not as much benefit for owning the other HD console.

fenderputty3894d ago

Mario Cart is brand new. If it didn't, there would be something wrong. The past weeks were dominated by GT5P for the PS3

green3894d ago

okay lets takewaway mario kart.That will put Wii software sales at above 700,000,Still above PS3 and 360 combined.

Superiorrior3894d ago

Next-gen? While the Wii is innovative, it's missing the step up from the last one, graphics, hate to rag people out for this but the Wii is in a category all on its own.

green3894d ago (Edited 3894d ago )

It might not be Nextgen to you or me ,but to the average joe it is sooo Next Gen

Primetimebt3894d ago

What happening when PS3, and 360 hit the Wii price range? I sure Wii play and Wii sports will not hold people over for that many years.

fenderputty3894d ago

and how many of those were of Wii Sports? Isn't that bundled with the system? I would say Mario Kart sold some consoles since Wii sports is up in the top 10.

Take away Mario Cart and the extra consoles sold due to that game and it isn't selling twice the software anymore.

shine13963893d ago

interesting that you took the other software out when you took mario kart out..also this isn't downloads, so actually, xbox live/psn are probably at least on par or doing much much better then the wii..and it's kind of unfair to compare platform software sales on the week of its (wii's) biggest exclusive...lets look a few weeks back at gt5 prolouge, or actually since your comparing wii to 360/ps3 sales, come back to me in two weeks time, when the year's biggest game comes out on the x360/ps3 and will never ever come to wii.
