Sony may be one week away from 3 million calendar 2013 goal.
Also, interesting that Wii U is leading hardware. When you think about it the Wii U is not selling to poorly compared to the other systems. If the Wii U can keep this up (and if Sony can't ever restock supply) the Wii U may be able to retain that lead for a longer time than people think.
NYC_Gamer  +   703d ago
The PS4/X1 just have higher demand compared to Wii U based on early sales of hardware..I'm just happy the console market is in good shape to be honest.

well keep in mind the wii u's a year older too. a lot of people were saying all the nintendo fans went out and bought one and it wouldn't sell near the other consoles this christmas
mikeslemonade  +   703d ago
Soon the X1 sales will plateau and it will take atleast 2 years in total to surpass the WiiU. $499.99 just isn't viable enough to start off. Price drops won't work either because the competition is always gonna be cheaper.
avengers1978  +   702d ago
It will be interesting to see what the numbers are for the last couple weeks, as all 3 consoles were selling well leading upto Christmas
Hicken  +   703d ago
Keep in mind, these numbers are two weeks old, now. It includes none of the systems restocked and subsequently sold in the days just prior to Christmas.

(And, of course, VGChartz is only an estimate, not a definite.)

That said, I do believe 3 million sales will be surpassed before the end of the year. I imagine that the Wii U will be just around 5 million sales(demand just doesn't seem to be all that strong, though it has picked up during the holidays). I expect the XB1 to be in the 2.5 million range.
Ol_G  +   703d ago
you do understand it did more than 100k last week in japan only if you count us and europe christmas sales i think it's safe to say they surpassed the 5 million easily

Does it really matter? 5 million in one more than one year is pitiful.
Theyellowflash30  +   702d ago
But more than 2 million in a couple months is good. And that's where the Wii U right now.

It had its problems. But things are clearly looking up. Nintendo's 2014 software is going to be big. Smash Bros, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Monolith Soft's X, to name a few.

Nintendo will easily sell more than 5 million units next year.
Skip_Bayless  +   702d ago
5 million next year?? That's a pretty slim chance considering WiiU launch window sales, year one holiday sales, and then year 2 holiday sales.

At Ol_G. Wii U sold well in japan 1. because of holidays and 2 because the wii U has no next gen competition in japan is either get a wii U for xmas or a ps3 or xbox.
Sharky231  +   703d ago
How is it interesting that Wii U is leading? They only had a year head start.
Eonjay  +   702d ago
Agreed. I meant to say leading software. It sold more software this week than PS4 and Xbox One.
Shnazzyone  +   702d ago
nevermind that the #1 console was 3ds by a mile. it sold almost 900k last week. 1.4 million in game sales for wii U ain't bad either.

At this point, if nintendo is doomed, then the entire gaming industry is doomed.
FamilyGuy  +   702d ago
Probably already over 3 million by now, this was the two weeks ago after all.
showtimefolks  +   702d ago
i am glad for nintendo and wiiu, system is good and we will get to play nintendo games in HD. $299 is a very good price

but ps4/xbox one will sell that much better. we could have a situation where:

ps4 sells 85-100 million
xbox one 75-90 million
wiiu 35-50 million

that's a huge gap between 2nd and 3rd considering wii sold 100 plus million
Shnazzyone  +   701d ago
Are you a time traveler? No way you wanna risk predicting 5 years from now. I'd comment on the numbers but it's funny you think wii U will be that far behind and ps3 didn't even hit 100mil before ps4 hit. Wii was LUCKY to break 100 million before its life was up and that was the blockbuster console last gen,
#1.7.1 (Edited 701d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(0) | Report
showtimefolks  +   701d ago

i didn't say 5 years, i am looking at it throughout the whole next gen. so more like 7-10 years. Both ps3 and xbox360 will sell somewhere 95-100 million range

PS4 and xbox one are up to a very hot start, wiiu isn't gonna be able to compete with either so that's why i see a huge number difference. Most gaming pundits are actually saying under 40 million for wiiu

why pay $299 for wiiu when for $399 you can get a ps4, that's the million dollar question

It doesn't track digital sales.
B1663r  +   703d ago
They don't track anything. They make up numbers based on some hidden calculus that they won't show anyone.

Their numbers are CONSISTENTLY wildly off base, then they stealth edit their website to reflect the changes when real data becomes available done by real market research firms.
Geobros  +   703d ago
Its not easy to track everything. Though, I think its the only site for video games sales....I wish to see another one in the future.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   703d ago
They don't track anything.It's all "educated" guesses.
Skip_Bayless  +   703d ago
I don't care what any of you guys say. It's ballpark numbers and they are close enough. And then they edit their numbers once they get reliable sales data from outside sources.

The fact is the numbers tell the same story. And it's just dumb how when the numbers favor X1, the X1 fans all of sudden believe the numbers are "kinda" correct and then vice versa for PS4 fans. At the end of the day the numbers are basically correct and tell the same story. "Law of very large numbers" people..
Ju  +   702d ago
I agree with you there, Skip_Bayless. They show a trend. For our amusement they are accurate enough, for people interested in real numbers those are edited when more accurate numbers are available. Nobody tracks weekly sales accurately anyway.

But one thing, though. Global 374K, Europe 174K and USA 144K. Where's the rest? ~60K are missing

USA doesn't include Canada? but 60 is to much there, Europe includes EMEA? (which is Australasia/Middle East?).
insomnium2  +   702d ago

I'm a Sony guy and VGC is NEVER right. They should be banned from this site no matter how much they show PS4 winning over XBone. Capish?
Skip_Bayless  +   702d ago
Well it beats waiting weeks longer to brag. Eh?
insomnium2  +   701d ago

showtimefolks  +   702d ago
They take bunch of guesses and are usually wrong, but its a great site if you want to find out exact number for past years. Their present numbers are always wrong till they actually get all their facts in at the end of the year and update everything again

but look atleast its a site working hard to provide some data

Evilsnuggle  +   703d ago
PS4 600000 more sold than x1 and counting. The PS4 is going to hit 3 million consoles sold before the New Year. I think this generation PS4 120-160 million x1 40-60 wii u 40-20 million. SONY made a far superior product compared to the x1 and wii u. The 360 and PS3 were competitive because both had strengths and weaknesses. Michael Patcher said if PS4 is cheaper and more powerful than x1 it will destroyed x1 in sales.
gnothe1  +   703d ago you really believe the PS4 will outsell the xbox one by 80 million plus....smmfh...the PS3 couldn't do it coming off a super strong PS2 what makes you think they can do it now?......
Skip_Bayless  +   703d ago
Evilnugs is correct.

40Wii U

Just look at this trend. Xbox 360 80 mil but X1 lacks all the advantages the 360 had. While PS3 sold 81 million but PS4 has all the advantages going into this generation. It's obvious PS4 will go over 100+ million because they've done that with 3 out of the 5 of the systems. And considering WiiU is gonna falter some of those casual gamers will buy the PS4 because it's cheaper.

And further more just look at early trend this generation. While the 360 led 3 to 1 and then 2 to 1 in the U.S. the PS4 on short supply is already beating the X1. So all you have to account is that the PS4 will automatically get a bonus 10-20 million bonus install base based on that alone.

Probably the fact that it's not releasing a year late and a higher price point like the PS3. The PS4 has a good reputation. And everyone remembers the PS2 with its 150 million units sold worldwide.

Dude No. If you honestly think the PS4 will sell 80-100 million more consoles than Xbox One when it has only sold $600,000 more so far you've been smoking too many drugs

Nonsense!!! The PS4 is in 32 markets right now and the Xbox One only in 13 markets. So what do we have here? The PS4 available in more than 2 times the market as the Xbox One, yet it is unable to completely outclass the more expensive Xbox One.

The numbers are not far away.

I'd say the Xbox One is doing really really well, all things considered. If Microsoft had managed to launch in the same amount of markets, I believe things would have been very different.

Edit: No offense to you brother, but you have the thought process of a child due to your sales estimation. If you're older than 20, then there's something seriously wrong with you lol.

Don't go thinking you're too much more advanced than he is, mentally.

Middle schoolers should be able to recognize that it doesn't matter how many markets you're in if you're selling the same amount as somebody else.

If you and I both sell cookies, and I can sell them in 10 neighborhoods, while you can only sell them in two, that doesn't mean I should sell more cookies than you. Reasons?

1. Preference. Some people in some neighborhoods just may like the cookies you sell better than mine.

2. Demand. Despite you only having two neighborhoods, they may contain some big cookie eaters. On the other hand, my neighborhoods may not have such fanatics.

3. Supply. We might sell out of cookies at the same time, but if it takes me longer to get more, then you can sell more. Or you might not get as many in the next time around. Or I might get more than you next time.

And all these things affect each other. That's how the PS4 can be out in more markets, be sold out more frequently, and sell more; but it's also why such a thing isn't guaranteed: it's all variables.
rayzorn  +   702d ago

YodaCracker  +   702d ago
It's completely ridiculous to make sales predictions so early in the generation. Virtually anything could happen in the coming years. No one can accurately predict how things will turn out, not even industry analysts, let alone random Internet fanboys. What you get are predictions like this:

Shouldn't the PS4 Be on around 4.4 million worldwide by now or even 6.6 million or even 8.8 million.
Isn't that a 2:1 or 3:1 or even 4:1 ratio for PS4 worldwide?
What happened. Ain't the PS4 for sale in over double the countries?
If its stock levels I think you should be giving credit to Microsoft for only launching in fewer places.
Again, what happened? Some ppl were posting 6:1 worldwide....

It was supposed to happen is the U.S. That didn't work out, so they said those 4:1 and 6:1 are in E.U. Still nothing there. Here we are looking at global, and VGchartz refuses to verify any of the madness, so VGchartz will now fell the raft of the rabid PS4 fanboyz. It is actually funny to watch.

Soooooo I can't be here without being interested in the numbers in this article?

I think the only reason I'm here is to defunk the myth that every single one of us is a hypocrite claiming these numbers are valid only when they favour their choise of console. I'm a Sony guy, VGC shows PS4 leading over XBone and not a single eff was given by me. These numbers are still as much BS as they have allways been.

I think we went through this BS about VGC being crap already back in 2007-2008. The war was fierce and shots were fired. However VGC was proven to be BS all those years ago so it kinda pisses me off to hear some deuchebag say that I would be a hypocrite. Not that Ati ever did that directly at me buy I still fealt the need to reply to him. How's that for a motive huh?

These are pop-games, similar to pop-music. Many people play them because that's what's advertised the most to them. The way of the world, it is.

weird that after retailers saying that the PS4's selling much faster than the XB1 that both of them have nearly the same WW numbers. It makes no sense at all. Especially when you consider that on certain parts of the world like Spain the PS4's outselling the XB1 3 to 1. In fact, the XB1 is not winning on any territory which make this be even more strange.

Let's just assume the numbers are accurate or at least close enough. It shows th x1 is selling 22.7% less then ps4 or ps4 is selling 29.4% more then x1 take your pick or just cut it down the middle and say 25%. Either way for every 3 x1 sold there are 4 ps4 sold worldwide right now. People can say the numbers aren't that far apart but think about how people go crazy on black Friday to save 25% on a new tv. 25% is a noticeable number in the real world and you better believe that devs are taking notice and for any 3rd party looking to make an exclusive it will be really noticeable.
Ju  +   702d ago
Especially if you look at the SW numbers which already shows the PS4 with more than 1M ahead. This is what makes developers money. If this keeps going on, this gap will only increase.
jholden3249  +   702d ago
Doesn't matter. As long as there's enough of an install base they'll bring games to both systems. Doesn't matter if PS4 has twice the install base, all that matters is if Xbox One has enough of a base that bringing the game will be profitable. We're going to see less and less 3rd party exclusives over the years, especially with Valve entering the scene.
jholden3249  +   702d ago
Wow, the Nintendo 3DS sold more units than PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita combined!

vgchartz is a cheating website created by xbox fan he reduces sony sales numbers while increases microsoft ones. PS4 is selling at least double the xbone numbers globally.
