Prologue baby! This is gonna hit 2 million in no time

Storm233651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

And don't forget, that is just the blu-ray disk sales for GT5: Prologue...Not any downloads

Software was really good for the PS3 considering the 360 has almost 2 1/2 more consoles than PS3's in the US

And that Wii just keeps going. (Personally I don't know why but I am happy for Nintendo)

sonarus3651d ago

Yea i downloaded due to laziness and i know a bunch of ppl who did the same. Prologue should sell a million in UK alone off disc sales. Overall plus downloads and disc sales they will definitely hit 2million.

Fishy Fingers3651d ago

This should be interesting...

360 Revolution3651d ago

it should

too bad traffic is kinda low @ the moment

Sir Ken Kutaragi 13651d ago

PS3: 73,666 ;-P
360: 68,593 ;-D

Next-Gen Starts NOW!!!;)

yanikins1113651d ago

prologue sales look pretty sh!te imo... maybe they have to wait for the weekend or something.

darkdoom30003651d ago

Compared to europe this is noting. guess Europeans love their cars!

Wow, Ps3 is beating X360?

yanikins1113651d ago

yeah.... you been under a rock for the last 4 months? :P Then again... no one really knows. And yeah look at the european sw sales listings on the europe/others post. Ps3 pretty much doubled the 360 number. Europeans REALLY like their cars.

darkdoom30003651d ago

Well, I dont live under a rock, but MS said it was due to hardware shortages. I thought 'next week ill be back to normal', but it wasnt. then i thought 'next month ill be back to normal' but nope.

I mean its been over a month. im guessing that the 'hardware shortages' have been fixed. so i guess these figues have become the 'normal'

thewhoopimen3651d ago

Uhhh... guys did you read? That's Prologue after 3-4 days of sales out of a week. Considering its up against Brawl... that's really good...

timmyrulz3651d ago

"Estimate" that the ps3 outsold the 360 every week of last March? dont know why this continually gets posted all of the time, John Doe himself can estimate numbers

power of Green 3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

This is just used by PS3 fanboys for morale. Know one knows what week VGcharts got it right or which console was ontop the entire generation useing VGC in other markets other than the NA one. Good point on last weeks trackings.

Kind of the way a battered wife will except her abuse and will start believing fictional realalities she tells herself.

Fishy Fingers3651d ago

lol... yes because xbox fans never used to use VGChartz for bragging rights when their numbers showed the 360 outselling the PS3. Or did they....?

Bathyj3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

Since you guys are talking, and no on has ever answered this for me What make NPD so accurate to be deemed gospel. Can you name all the chain they count, and more importantly the chains they dont? The truth is they're just guessing too.

Hell even Sonys and M$ official numbers are just their best guess, theres no way you can know for sure. Since I got a new Xbox under extended warranty everytime it broke I guarantee M$ thinks they sold me 3 of there. I wonder how they adjust their figures for all the others since their numbers are shipped anyway. Think about it. 18M shipped must mean 4 to 5 M broken and therefore only a possible 13 in homes. Makes you think ay?

I know VG's numbers are wrong, but I think 90% of the time who they say is winning is in front. Thats good enough for me, and it used to be good enough for the bots too, when they were still winning.

Kleptic3651d ago (Edited 3651d ago )

POG..you flip flop on VG every couple months...last year you used it non-stop...but now you hate it...

either way...you better hope its wrong...wouldn't be very good for 360 fanatics if the PS3 is outselling the 360 EVERYWHERE just a week before the big one drops...

Snukadaman3651d ago

1.2 - GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!AND MICHAEL JACKSON THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.of.A!!! ;-D
PS3: 73,666 ;-P
360: 68,593 ;-D

Next-Gen Starts NOW!!!;

when you see the xbox winning you dont see many people doing such nonsense...the droids need more morale boosting....xbox is still on top with more consoles sold then sony..do the math...as I always say..since north america is not blinded as europe on sony...the see saw battle in north america continues....5k aint nothing to brag about though...get it over 100k in the us and then enjoy.

OJ_juice3651d ago

of course will use this as morale. At least we have some. Unlike you xbots, trying to somehow get around that 360 is failing and ps3 is kicking its arse. With so many numbers that show ps3 is outselling 360, I can see your anger and fear from these articles. So save your emberassment and don't post in good ps3 news.
