The week's top-selling games at retail ranked by unit sales
Well, it seems Pokemon and GTA are still selling nicely. I imagine the new numbers will explode in a few weeks though...
PS3 is still performing strong. Beyond two souls is kind of disappointing though, which is quite a shame with how good the game was.
PS3 is pulling away from the 360 now globally. The difference will be 5-10 million by systems end. Not bad for an over-priced late console that had to compete with a massively always price-cut system.
I agree it is a good game but I'm not sure if Beyond: Two Souls will sell as well as Heavy Rain though.
@vigilante-man : is it the 360 that you're calling a "massively always price-cut system" ? Can you name any other system that saw its minimum price decrease by only a hundred bucks in 8 years ? For the sake of comparison, the cheapest PS3 is 300 bucks cheaper than it was at launch 7 years ago... If anything, the 360 has been overpriced for quite a few years.
Geez 24 million sold already, what a beast. Either we were all desperate for a great game or people have been impatiently waiting on this game for years. Probably a little of both, all GTA5 seem to have launched at the most perfect time. Edit @ below It say 11 mil on 360, 13 mil on PS3, how is that "29 million"? Am I missing something? You have digital sales numbers included or what? o.O
@Family Guy You're wrong. It's 29 million. Even better!
GTA Playstation Commercials helped alot.
29 million was shipped to stores, globally.
I'm kind of curious to see how sales will be a month from now. Will games for the next gen be on top or will it be a small part at first?
Its will be smaller for sure, atleast for the first year or two
A Nintendo game outselling GTA5, what's new?
Well, considering how GTA V sold 11 million copies within it's first 24 hours I kind of doubt that.
Come on, laugh at his joke and walk away. This kid has a hard enough time being a Nintendo fan.
Expect that WW unit disparage between the ps3 and 360 to be mirrored by the ps4 and xbox1.
Agreed, but not mirrored, because the gap will be bigger in favor of PS4.
Damn, The Wii U still couldn't outsell the PSVita
Im sorry but the Wii U sold more than Vita this week. You do know that there has been around 200k Wii U's sold in like 18 days. Every week around 70k Wii U's were sold in the month of a october. At this pace by the time Super Mario 3D World comes out, there will be around 550k Wii U's sold from October 1st to November 21. The install base woukd be right around 4.3 million by November 21. From November 22 to January 1, around 2.5m Wii U's will be sold. So around 7m Wii U's will be sold by 2014. Maybe around 8 million because from launch to January 2013 the base was around 3 million wven though not most gamers buy a console at launch. My prediction is 8 million.
I doubt that the Wii U is gonna sell 7 million units in 2014 but 4 million units by the end of the year. The Wii U is doing okay in the USA and Europe. IT NEEDS JAPAN TO MAKE A PROPER COMEBACK
Wii U 66,512 PSV 48,435 Did I miss something?
Only if your goal post is Japan (> World)
The PS Vita didn't outsell the Wii U. Not only that, but there are no PS Vita games in the top 75 for sales. There are multiple Wii U games on there
Nice job RockStar, It would have sold like 15 million more copies if it was on PC too
15 millions of torrents...
5 million seeders.
Yeah will not buy it until its on pc however long it takes.
3DS will be over 40 million after the holidays. Half of PS3 and 360's lifetime sales that fast.
And PS Vita hopefully at a quarter of that if miracles happen. It should have reached 10 million by last year. Vita TV better not flop.
Why would it flop?
Vita TV would do A LOT better in the West since Japan's bigger on handhelds. Plus, PS4 is launching in the West first so they should have taken that opportunity. I can't wait to see that Media Create on the 20th! Hope it sells well.
... so, again, why would Vita TV flop?
Because I'm not sure if in Japan it would be so popular. It's awesome for people who don't want to dish out $200 for a Vita. Hopefully that's a good enough incentive to warrant a purchase.
Rockstar did right by marketing it as a PLaystion game in ther ad. Compared to GTA4. Call Of Duty would sell wayy more if they got rid of the 1month DLC and market it as a Playstion game.
Why Nintendo hasnt convinced Rockstar to put GTA 5 on Wii U is beyind me. It would fix damn near my only complaint with the game: extensive pausing to view the map. Seriously, the gamepad was made for games like GTA 5. Just try LEGO City (aka LEGO GTA)on wii U then tell me that GTA 5 wouldnt be a shitload better on the gamepad! I hope they eventually announce it or at least support the u, but probably not.
Wow, Sony has really, really improved their showing over the course of this generation. Someone deserves a raise over there... well played, great turn-around, keep the ingenuity coming.
The fact that Pokemon is topping the charts everywhere is pretty funny, not in a bad way though, I'm glad, just means Pokemon's still far from dying out. Monster hunter 4 is still selling real well too despite Pokemon kicking it out of first, I'm a little surprised.
last quarter (july-september) PS3 demolished x360 in sales.
PS3 sold 2 million
x360 sold 1.2 million
