What VGcharz show in Hardware sales is reflected in what they show in the software sales too. Most next gen titles also are selling higher on the X1 over PS4 per this chart.
mikeslemonade  +   277d ago
Worldwide sales on vgchartz.com

2.7 million PS4s vs 2.1 million X1s. Owned..

Sony has already said they are allocating the PS4s around the world differently while X1 is focusing in America first.

Can't wait to see your faces for next week because on the 20th the PS4 in the U.S. was sold out at #1 on Amazon for 4 straight days with 3 other skus that were sold out. That was when Sony finally decided to supply the U.S. with lots of systems before Christmas.

lol, Ouch I know a certain group wont like this, yeah, yeah vgchartz as I've said on past vgchartz threads that favor both xbox and ps is that vgchartz is only an estimate of sales, but for the most part they are in the ballpark, still if they are close its going to hurt a lot feelings of those so, so goddamm desperate to downplay X1 sales, and praying for ps4 domination since this site has been filled with ps4 outselling X1 news posts, eerrr according to ebay, the n4g elite and blogs written by n4g professionals who author news for hits all have been trying to tell us ps4 is crushing X1 in sales. [note the lack of verified info, always assumptions, and "we all know..."] lol, yet vgchartz shows X1 leading in the US and it turns to all these excuses, I mean really theres no way in hell "you can't find a ps4 anywhere" if sony has sold ALMOST as much as the console that's "sitting on store shelves" all over the place collecting dust. Also its early and the implication that micro should NOT be happy with any lead in the US is ludicrous considering all the bad press they've been through and the higher price point.....wonder what Pachter will predict next?, maybe cinemablend and spawnfirst have some reliable info he could use.

Now with that said its great to see the videogame/consoles/industry doing so well. I do think however theres some trends we need to change, legit dlc that actually adds significant content to a game that was made months after release in my book is fine but money grab pointless dlc or stuff that could have been in the game at launch is BS, microtranactions is BS, lazy ports/last gen remake cash-ins is BS, and buggy, glitchy games that needs constant patches like we've seen from BF4 is BS, I understand todays games are complicated to ship day one without a few glitches or issues but these half finished games with poor QC and testing are getting worst and worst. We need to speak with our wallets.

What are all these X1 fans trying to say? 600,000 unit gap last week and 600,000 unit gap this week. PS4 still selling out at a faster rate.

^Jokes
Like Jokes said weeks ago when he referred to Amazon X1 is in stock and is ranked higher. However PS4 is ranked higher is out of stock currently at 1 and has been number 1 more than half of the days in the past week. Just gave you a taste of your own medicine, Jokes :p.

Okay so now Jokes flip flops to vgchartz claiming that they're "kinda right" and gives ballpark. But when it comes to PS3 outselling 360 he doesn't believe it. Least stay consistent.

At the end of the day PlayStation is beating Xbox. You can spin and zombie up your numbers all you want.

Bigpappy  +   277d ago
They were so many 4:1 and 2:1 article and PS4 demand so high, no one wants the X1.

Now here come VGcharz causing trouble by saying X1 is actually outselling PS4 in North America. The pundits have quickly moved on to global numbers.

I wonder what the global ratio is now? I am sure some PS4 zealous with a website will soon provide that needed info. And VGcharz will once again be relegated to the unreliable rumor site it was known to be until it showed PS4 with a sizable lead over X1.
Prophet-Gamer  +   277d ago
The Global ratio would still be in the Ps4's favor. You have to realize, the 4:1, 3:1 ratios were mostly in European countries, places where the X1's main features didn't even work.

MS is free to focus almost completely on NA, and the UK to a lesser extent. They don't have to worry about the rest of the world because it'd be pretty much futile (the PS4 is steamrolling it). Sony has to divide their stock between 40+ countries.

What this means is, obviously, the X1 has more stock available in NA (a lot more), and it's the region where the X360 completely DOMINATED.

In fact, this is pretty telling, the PS4 with significant supply issues, is still keeping up with the X1 which has plenty of it, and which is the successor to the best selling NA console of last gen.

The real test will be in the coming months, once Sony actually has PS4's on store shelve (since right now it seems they don't even get there) and once the Xbox faithful (the people who were always going to buy an X1) have gotten their fix.

Interesting times lay ahead.

Look at the numbers when both systems are in stock, e.g. when Amazon had both available recently. The PS4 took off like a rocket. That's where the 2:1 and 3:1 numbers come from. They are also consistent with pre-orders leading up to release. All signs are that demand for the PS4 is much higher. The One only seems to outsell the PS4 when the PS4 supply is dried up.

It's not good or bad. It's just reality.

@Prophet-Gamer: that unfortunately is not what I am referring to. The article I am referring to are fro sites like eBay and a few2 less known web sites. And people quoting Bestbuy manages and working for Gamestop, where the PS4's are selling as soon as they come in and the Xbox ones are just sitting there piling up.

So no clarification is needed. I know exactly what I am referring to, and I if you have been visiting this site for the pass month or so you should too.

@frostypants: You are getting disagrees because you are making excuses. what you are saying is not fact, buy your personal take . The only facts you can counter with would be better numbers than what are given here. Until you have those, X1 one is outselling PS4 in N.A. nothing you say about Sony's inability to supply demand and all that sympathetic stuff does nothing to change what the numbers themselves say.

I don't see what wrong with these numbers. We know that the PS4 is severely supply constrained so it makes sense to me that the Xbox One is slightly outselling it. There are still more PS4 out in the US than Xbox Ones. Thats a bigger deal to me.

Edit: Also, Ebay sales and grey market sales aren't tracked. They are basically resales. People are going to Ebay because thats the only place to get them. Until Sony can make adequate stock I don't expect it to pull away from the Xbox.

@bigpappy

you couldnt of hit the nail on the head more,i work in retail,hell i run the electronics division and all this non sense of "the xbox one sits on shelves" "its in stock everywhere" is simple b/s. The reason it may appear that is easily in stock is because microsoft has been sending us on average 20-25 a week while sony has been sending 3-5 a week,yes 3...a box fits 4 consoles, i was shocked to open a box and see only 3,that tells me there is huge shortage problems.

People are not understanding the xbox 360's footprint,i'd say 90% of parents bought an xbox one from me just based on the simple fact its the new xbox,they are just sticking to what they kids have had and liked. I do get the few parents who very clear they do not want an xbox one only a ps4. For the most part the xbox name is just synonymous with gaming the same way nintendo was in the 90's,playstation in the mid 90's and now xbox in 2010 and so on.

This site would have you believe the xbox one will stop being made in a few months from now lol and article after article they approve it gets to a point where people here actually think it's true,but once some good ol solid numbers drop that site loses credit or microsoft payed them off....when sony had a boring reveal it was "oh its ok wait for e3" then had a horrible e3 which showed nothing but indies and multiplats ,only saved by the ability to lend games? if thats youre best feature you must go back to the drawing board,im a grown man,i buy my games. Never the less sony is on this major postitive press momentum and for what? cause they say we are for the gamers and only give you killzone and knack at launch? oh its ok cause one of the worst shooters in franchise history plays in 1080p on our console making the ps4 truly next gen despite it actually being the lazy developers that rushed the game fault,now its a big reality check.

Lastly and my only reason i made this post....can we really blame anyone but sony for the supply issue? i mean people made fun of microsoft when they cut back there launch to 13 countries. Is it still funny? Cause it's looking like thats why microsoft team is rich and will stay rich, Sony let the xbox one outsell the ps3 and ps4 combined on the biggest shopping day of year ( i saw it first hand we had 50 xbox ones and 5 ps4's for black friday) All the sony fans who thinks this will pick up once its in stock is wrong,sony blew it,they missed black friday and xmas. January wont be these magical numbers,you will never see number like that till a holiday or a price drop. No one is speaking on this cause sony can do no wrong,all they had to do was make the ps4 available in the biggest market in the world,if it meant delaying the UK to dec 1-10 then do it,countries that dont celebrate xmas should have been delayed, but anyways microsoft will get the right to brag as there console can and will be named the best selling console of december/holiday will be a huge blow to sony's marketing (not to mention all the buzz on the ps4 and how its boring and you should wait on more games -.-) 15 disagrees means im right.

U mad bro? All the systems are selling so that's good for gaming. The u.s. is the largest gaming market. Thats why m$ and sony released there 1st. So you market to the consumer.

I live in the US and I feel like the Xbox One advertising is over-saturated. Its the opposite of the Wii U.

The US is the biggest market but you need to win the international market in order to come out on top. Right now PS4 is winning both, but its still early.
ChillPill  +   277d ago
360 did well mostly because of US and UK right? No Japan and so so everywhere else. I think X1 could do the same because last gen they both sold about 80mil and 360 did that with everybody saying it only sells in the US while ps3 sells everywhere.
thekhurg  +   277d ago
More surprising - those totals do not account for the gigantic Amazon numbers put up the week prior to Christmas which catapulted the console ahead of the Xbone for "best sellers 2013 video games" on Amazon's charts.
Eonjay  +   277d ago
Nor does is account for when the PS4 went "back in stock" on 12/15/2013 at Walmart. Expect next weeks numbers to be much larger.
Ju  +   277d ago
But still. I agree that XBo bounced back quite a bit - even though those are VG numbers.

MS is not giving up on their home turf...but at the same time, focusing on the US alone actually makes them loose big times in other territories (dropped 50% in UK...the second largest gaming market where MS was ahead in the last/current gen) - and 50% in EMEA (or even less).

None the less, I still think Sony won the Christmas race in the US, even though MS caught up. Usually, off season sales are stonger in Sony's favor, like post-holiday sales. Still being ahead will keep them ahead for the whole next year.

Whatever MS gains in the US, doesn't offset the loss in the rest of the world, though. Not sure if this is so smart, but well, being a top player in the US counts, sure. It would be devastating would they loose there.
Concertoine  +   277d ago
Yeah considering ps4 had a week headstart too. I thought sony had NA in the bag but it might be 50/50 this time. Which might as well be a loss for MS.
Eonjay  +   277d ago
After going over the numbers, it turns out that the Xbox 360 almost outsold the PS3 by a margin of 2 to 1 in the US. Sony still sold more units by capturing the international market. Basically, the only way for Microsoft to come out on top would be for the Xbox One to outsell the PS4 by a huge margin in the States. Even if Xbox sell equal units in the US, Microsoft will still be massively outsold. Again its still early.
Ju  +   277d ago
Yeah, going by the hype I'd have expect PS4 doing much better, tbh. But at the same time, I agree, that Sony even being where they are in the US can't be that great for MS.

How do you figure it's kicking ass? It did better by 55k when there wasn't much PS4 stock to sell. In the almost two weeks since then, the PS4 has been restocked and quickly sold out quite a few times. Didn't the numbers on Amazon alone pretty much demolish that difference?
Sm00thNinja  +   277d ago
Its $100 extra and it's staying competitive much like the PS3 did. As much as you and others want the ONE to fail there's a giant market for Microsoft.

Ju  +   277d ago
Not sure...My guess is, XBO is outselling the PS4 in the US. But with the strong launch and the numbers PS4 is doing, XBO can only close the gap.

And Sony ships more units globally. They have allocated much more for the rest of the world - almost 100% more than MS. Means, there isn't enough stock to fill shelves in the US for Sony. Whatever MS gains in the US isn't enough to push them ahead and they are loosing big time everywhere else. An expensive victory (which isn't one yet - they aren't ahead).

Because when the PS4 is available, it is outselling the One. Both companies are producing inventory at roughly the same rate in the US, and both are selling out. But the PS4 has been selling out several orders of magnitude faster. Put 10 PS4s on a Best Buy shelf next to 10 One units. Both will sell out...but the PS4 will sell out in a matter of minutes. The One will sell out in a matter of a couple of days. That's how it's been in my area, anyway. The final numbers look similar, but they don't tell the whole story.

We'll know for certain once production for both can keep up with demand soon.

I disagree. Looks like Sony's production volume is actually higher - not by much, but still (see global numbers). However, Sony allocates more to the rest of the world leaving the US with supply shortages. Doesn't really matter. For Sony being a "high currency manufacturer" it makes quite some sense to sell to non-US$ territories while MS being an US company their focus is turning US$. Makes some sense from the financial perspective.

The Wii U is putting up much more of a fight than anybody thought. The system is selling pretty well for being considered "dead"

2014 is a big year. Look at those Mario Kart 7 sales. I think a lot of people are getting ready for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U next year. That game is going to sell a lot of Wii U's.

Either way, great sales across the board! And good lord....the Nintendo 3DS is just a beast!
ABizzel1  +   277d ago
The Wii U had some great bundles, and deals going on for the holiday. I got a Wii U Deluxe + Nintendoland for $160 on Black Friday.

However, not to rain on anyones parade, 2 million sales in 52 weeks isn't anything to brag about. That's an average of less than 40,000k units per week. Nintendo is still hurting, Worldwide except for Japan.
Theyellowflash30  +   277d ago
If you bring up the past, yes the Wii U has not done so well. But that's because there was a lack of marketing and games.

Now that the marketing, bundles, and games are there, the Wii U is doing to sell much better.

The same thing happened with the 3DS. Move on, and focus on what you can control. That's the mindset Nintendo has.

The Wii U is going to sell a lot of consoles in 2014. Between Smash Bros, Mario Kart, DKC, Monolith Soft's X, Hyrule Warriors, Wii Fit U, and Bayonetta 2. Nintendo has a lot more system selling games in 2014 than they did in 2012 and 2013
SilentNegotiator  +   277d ago
So your definition of a system "putting up the biggest fight" is beating expectations of some people on the internets?

"Now that the marketing, bundles, and games are there, the Wii U is doing to sell much better. The same thing happened with the 3DS. Move on, and focus on what you can control"

But Wii U was still selling a low amount before the holiday season boosted it. It was selling better than months where it pushed 100K or less.

And you really think that Wii U's path is anything like 3DS? 3DS started selling really well when they slashed the price by an entire THIRD. Unless Wii U's price becomes $200 overnight, it's not the same thing. Furthermore, the initially "poorly selling" 3DS never sold less than 350K in a month, where as this year Wii U only managed ~100K most months and initial numbers put it at ~500K in November and December (relatively nothing for consoles in those months).

Wii U is not particularly healthy and is not showing any tangible signs of significant improvement. The numbers do not lie. It's on its way to selling Gamecube numbers.

The PS4 and XBO had the benefit of being new console with high demand so their numbers don't make for a realistic average (even with supply restraints). So next year will bring real average numbers, although I suspect them to both outsell the Wii U by holiday 2014, if Nintendo doesn't get their game release schedule together and have another price drop.

By comparison the PS3 and 360 sold an average of 54,888 (360) and 39,944 (PS3) per week in the US, compared to the Wii U's 18,601. The Wii U isn't doing good at all, and the World Wide numbers aren't any better except for Japan.

The Xbox 360 sold more console in the US ALONE than the Wii U is sold WORLDWIDE for the year 2013. That's not good. The 3DS is keeping Nintendo afloat for this generation thus far.

X360: 2.8M (US only)
Wii U: 2.6M (Worldwide)

WW numbers
1. 3DS: 12.8M
2. PS3: 8.2M
3. 360: 5.5M
4. PSP: 3.1M (surprised, $$$ profit now, but they need to add these #'s to Vita)
5. PS4: 2.8M (6 weeks of sales)
6. PSV: 2.7M (same boat as the Wii U)
7. WiiU: 2.6M (horrible for a new console)
8. XBO: 2.2M (5 weeks of sales)
9. Wii: 1.9M
10. DS: 0.8M

Once again ABizzel, bringing up the past.

We already know of Nintendo's issues with the Wii U. Things are different now. The 3DS whet through some struggles as well.

In 2014 the Wii U has a killer lineup. The bad sales of the Wii U are a thing of the past. The Vita continues to struggle.

annnnnd the spinning continues. every console has a hype period. even wii u sold 3 mill during its hype phase. why can't the haters admit Wii U has been on a rise since october, and we know 2014 is going to be big for them

@Yellow

What do you mean bringing up the past. These are the sales data for the entire year of 2013.

The Wii U (A brand new console, without supply restraints) is being outsold by and 8 year old consoles, from Sony and MS.

That's TERRIBLE, no matter how you try to spin it. I already said Nintendo has a great line-up of games, but the fact that there are no solid release dates for them, hurts a bit. On top of that the $299 price for the Wii U, is a hard sell when you can get a PS4 for $399 if you're not a huge "Core" Nintendo fan (of which only 20 - 40 million exist). On top of that the console has some serious issues like poor online, HUGE lack of multiplayer, multiplatform games are likely going to be vastly superior on the PS4 and even XBO, and multimedia features (Blu Ray, DVD, etc...), all things that are expected to be in a console coming from the PS360 aren't even part of the Wii U.

The Perceived consumer value (PCV) just isn't there. Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, and Smash are going to boost sales, but they're noting going to get the Wii U up to 8 - 9 million by the end of their fiscal year.

Nintendo has a lot of work cut out for them if they want to save the Wii U from being another GameCube sales wise, the problem isn't just the Wii U, it's the management at Nintendo, and until that problem is fixed the only way the Wii U is going to be successful is with a price cut down to $199 - $249 holiday 2014, an Ambassador program for current Wii U owners, and a BUNCH of good 1st party games and exclusives for the next few years.

If they don't get all three of those, then once again the Wii U is going to be in trouble.

At the end the wii u will win this gen again ..the price and the games will sell it notice how killzone ,knack ,ryse ,Forza ,etc all these games fell off and are not selling good no more mean while Mario 3d world is selling more and and more every week and wii u sales keep rising ..lets see how ps4 and x1 are selling when the hype dies down after the holidays and there're no major first party releases till the next holiday season

TheLyonKing  +   277d ago
none of these numbers says much until we come into feb and we see supply really keep up with demand. Still great numbers for both.
bligmerk  +   277d ago
VGchartz just takes guesses in the first few days or weeks, then they readjust the numbers when real sales data comes in.

The next reliable set of sales numbers is going to be in January from the manufacturers and professional tracking companies. Next month, we will find out the real numbers, so just take these numbers with a grain of salt until then.
kowan  +   277d ago
this is vgchartz, one of the least accurate sites for sales data. These sales are purely estimates that are usually far off from the real sales number. Come next year when NPD numbers arrive and you'll most likely see HUGE adjustments to VGchartz data because of how "accurate" their guesses are.
mochachino  +   277d ago
It makes sense that xone would do well in the US - most of its Live features are only available there.

Xone is advertising like crazy in North America too, mine and my friend's parents have asked about the "new xbox and new Kinect" but no mention of Sony. It seems the people that don't know much about gaming at least know about the xone.

Should be an interesting gen.
TristanPR77  +   277d ago
I don't understand the xbox community. When Vgchartz shows the PS4 kicking the xbone the website is inaccurate and cannot be taken seriously.

But when it shows good numbers for the xbone suddenly the website is accurate and is reliable information.

WTF?

Why are people so obsessed with sales... Do you make any money? Nope.
imXify  +   276d ago
If you like a game you buy, you check the sales to see if it's likely for them to make another game or sequel. Well I see it that way.

wow XB1 is already closer than I expected...I wasn't expecting them to catch up till next Christmas next year or when Titanfall drops. It's already close enough that if PS4 didn't have that extra week it'd be about tied
IIZANGETSUII  +   276d ago
So where are those guys saying "even in 'murica PS4 will stomp Xbone" i wonder, oh and stop that bullshit about "it's just because PS4 is out of stock"
jessupj  +   276d ago
But the PS4 is out of stock... When Sony needs to stock 32 countries compared to MS's 13 there's going to be stock shortages. It's not rocket science. I don't know why you have a hard time understanding that simple concept.

And how bout we all just wait for the real NPD numbers before we prematurely go touting victory and looking silly.

And even if these numbers are true the PS4 still has a commanding lead in the rest of the world and it's only going to get bigger judging from how popular it is. And that's not even taking into account the Japan release.

I'm sorry to say but you're precious MS that tried to ruin gaming is going to be losing this generation by a significant amount, and rightly so.
IIZANGETSUII  +   276d ago
I don't know why you have a hard time understanding that i SAID USA sales not worldwide, of course worldwide will be a stomp by Sony i mean theres no way MS come back from that many mistakes of what they did with the Xbox ONE, seems u don't know how to read, and precious MS? LOL yeah right boy like if a like MS, i am a proud owner of a PS4 im just talking about facts that other people claimed so early, AGAIN im talking about 'murica not the rest of the world

Come on guys, If you are going to fight over sales at least do it when sony, ms or npd release real numbers. And not these fake guesstimates
Letthewookiewin  +   276d ago
For the people who ask "why care about sales"?. It's mainly because a system that dosen't sell well wont get top end third party developer support.
dmonee  +   276d ago
Xbox1 sales are only high because parents think it's what their teenager wants and it's available. I went to best buy yesterday to make an exchange and there were two kids in front of me returning their xbox's for a "freaking gift card" so they can come back and get PS4's. Xbox1=done!!!
u got owned  +   276d ago
Cool story bruh.

Typical I went to Best Buy yesterday story... Dont you guys have anything else up you sleeves?
dmonee  +   276d ago
There was a guy trying to return a ps4 but for some reason they wouldn't let him. He wanted an xbox1. Let me see the next big thing from "EPIC" for the Xbox1 then I will tilt my cap and purchase an xbox console. For now, I will continue to break balls! At least people that are early adopters of the X1 can at least get their hands on one. There is something to be said for that. PS4 RULES!!!!!!! I need to get one!!!!!!!

Playstation fanboys are so insecure, one box sold better than your box, deal with it pussies
jessupj  +   276d ago
lol.

I'm actually incredibly smug from where I'm sitting. There's been too many articles to count about the PS4's popularity and incredible demand from around the globe, especially in the US.

So far, when we get real sales numbers it's showing a significant lead over the xbone. And that gap is only going to get substantially bigger when the few million xbox fans that didn't do any research get their console.

And now that Christmas is over and all the uninformed parents stop buying it and the parents that were forced to get one because the PS4 was completely out of stock and the fact that Sony will be able to keep up a good supply of stock after the holiday rush, I will be very interested to see just how much the gap increases in the next few months.

Like I said, I'm incredibly smug. But that's only because MS tried to ruin gaming with their draconian DRM and now they're still paying the price. And fanboys like yourself and stubbornly and blindly sticking by them. It's truly puzzling.

If anyone's insecure here, it's you. The PS4 is set to trump the xbone, deal with it.

I'm not validating anything. I'm just calling you out on your pathetic fanboyism.

Congrats on proving that further by not replying to anything and just leaving a dumb ass comment saying you don't care. That's how children argue.

Don't why I'm surprised. If MS fanboys had any kind of argument they probably would have said something by now.
FlunkinMonkey  +   276d ago
Better he write that to validate his 'special little box', than you setting up a 10 day old (second) account sucking off anything MS, you are pathetic mate.

Don't get all high and mighty when your insecurity is potent throughout your comments. Cry. More. Please.

"Deal with it pussys"? Deal with what? PS4 is in much higher demand than the XBONE, it's just a shame your feeble mind doesn't understand how supply and demand works. You're are going to get a swift kick in the nuts when you see the numbers of units sold once both companies are producing units at a steady rate.
