1-2 weeks left and the PS4 will overtake Wii U in USA (already done in Europe)
2-3 weeks for the One
jackanderson1985  +   256d ago
wouldn't be surprised if sony already has overtaken them or is extremly close to it and MS not too far behind as Vgchartz numbers have been known as understated on both sides for a long time now (as in prior gen consoles)

No fakechartz numberz are fake. According to Fakechartz, the X1 stopped selling the week before xmas. Then it sold 600k the week after Christmas. Which is like, lol.

This is situation about PS4 and Xbone in Austria.

One of my friend has been in Austria about 12 days just to buy a PS4 and he has returned a few days ago. He has been in Media Markt, Libro, Up2games etc.. and in Saturn/Media Markt/Gamestop in Munchen ( GER ). NOTHING! Every shop makes preorder for PS4. Said by sellers that PS4 will be available by the end of January. On the other hand, Xbone is available on all possible versions, from Xbone solo to Xbone Forza 5, FIFA 14, COD : Ghosts bundles etc...

So it's true. PS4 is harder to buy, everywhere is sold out and still selling in much higher numbers than Xbone.
cell989  +   256d ago
this is the same reason the xbone seems to be "catching up" to the PS4, because they have more for sale than Sony can. Once production becomes stable Im curious to see how things will play out
imt558  +   256d ago
"More for sale" because you can find Xbones on shelves.

Great conclusion.

Sony must supply PS4's on markets in so many countries. Xbone can concentrate on just 13 countries and still you can find Xbone's on shelves.

Next month Sony will opet another big market : Japan!

When will Microsoft release Xbone on japanese market?

You sony kids must not have any systems and games to play. Because they sure are not distracting you from sitting on this website scratching for the latest dig at the other console. Go play games or do something productive instead of arguing about something that has absolutely no bearing on your financial future. Console sales helps you with absolute zero in your little world. It is absolutely irrelevant when you have a life, car payment, mortgage, kids, and employment responsibilities. Or do you guys work at Microsoft and/or Sony?

Of course not.

I am a retired veteran and have not work since 2008. I have neither the time or energy to cry about something I have no stake in like console sales. If you are a kid (which I suspect many of you may be) then carry on. Adults... what the heck is your motivation to argue with kids?
PS3Freak  +   255d ago
My buddy was supposed to get a ps4 for Christmas but his parents only sent him gift cards.

He still doesn't have his PS4 because they are impossible to find in Canada.

Luckily I still have a ton of ps3 and xbox 360 games to play so I don't need a PS4/Xone for a while yet.

Excuses, I'm seeing more and more ps4's in stores now here in southern Cali, saw them at Target Wed, even saw a dozen or so on Friday while the PX on Camp Pendleton, took a few pics just because I keep hearing that you can't find them, I got the # you can call if anybody out there is looking, don't know how long they will last but they'll confirm they had a dozen+ a few times since Christmas. No Xbox ones, obviously that's not everywhere since I saw some customers with X1 at Bestbuy but none on shelf last week with no ps4's. Also ps4 has been in and out of stock on Amazon recently even more than X1.

EXCUSES, from ps fans when X1 sales look strong vs ps4= fact both are selling very well, ps4 "looks" to be doing slightly better.

What excuses? PS3freak is right. The PS4 situation in Canada is entirely different than what you're taking pics of in southern Cali'. Why so serious
JokesOnYou  +   255d ago
uhm why is my comment anymore "serious" than those above like cell989 or imt558 comments? lol or are you just referring to Jokers line from a movie? I mean the only thing I'm pointing out is that although Id say ps4 has maybe more shortages WW than X1, the situation is different depending on where you go and comments like theirs suggesting that the just because you are spread thin across more regions vs better stock allocations of X1 in less markets but still limited and selling fast doesn't necessarily mean one of the consoles demand is significantly higher than the other. I don't understand why we just can't leave it at ps4 is selling better than X1 overall so far but both are doing very well.....it just seems some can't accept that and always want to downplay X1 sales as if it's doing "OK" only due to ps4 low stock.

For example if both only make and sell roughly 150,000 sold in 13 markets per week vs 150,000 sold in 30 markets per week is still 150,000 sold per week but obviously the demand in those 30 markets will look much higher due to less stock per market.

"Also ps4 has been in and out of stock on Amazon recently even more than X1."

I actually check that periodically every day. X1 is always in stock and ha been for the past two weeks. The only time PS4 is in stock is when they are selling next weeks stock such as "PS4 in stock on the 14th".

The ratio is 4:3 right now worldwide. With PS4s being more demanded. So you can say both are selling well, which is relative to what you see. The gap is only growing.

One of the major reasons X1 sold this much is Microsoft is actually making a lot of supply. The "bigger" system parts are probably easier to manufacture that's why. But I can't wait to see your face when the X1 sales finally dip. Microsoft is pretty close to meeting all demand where the consoles can sit there for weeks.

hopefully this means the gaming community will be more united.
H0RSE  +   256d ago
You make it sound harmonious when you use terms like "more united," like if everyone just liked PS4 things would be better, when in actuality, they would just more united in hating on Xbox....

It's like the difference between "united" as in a civil rights group, vs "united" like the Westboro Baptist Church....

One of the things that brings gaming communities together, is their hate for the competition. Same with games, sports, politics, and slew of other topics in our society.

I own both consoles, but I play my X1 the majority of the time. Of course I have like 11 games on the X1 compared to 4 on the PS4. I too am waiting for the exclusive that Sony is known for producing and I know it's coming. I'm just really digging the other features that the X1 brings to the table. I believe that dude when he says he's waiting for uncharted. Quite sure there are some PS4 owners waiting on a specific game inorder to buy an X1. I just so happened to have the money to buy both consoles out the gate. Some people don't, so they had to pick one then save more loot and pick up the other at a later date. These people, including me, are called "gamers". "Fanboys" are those that wouldn't even consider any other console besides the one that they tout.
christocolus  +   256d ago
@lifesagame

Yeah both consoles are doing good but it seems they dropped in figures compared to the week before.the xbx one is pushing really hard though but in general they're both showing good numbers.

Also Im getting mine way before the next uncharted. Getting it with infamous:ss. Ive followed the series from part one. The new guy seems cool but a bit of a show off meanwhile cole mcgrath was just your everyday good guy. I wonder if he will show up in this one?

Couldn't care less, you COULDN'T care less. Why can't people get this right?!!!
H0RSE  +   256d ago
"I could care less" isn't logically incorrect. The phrase is sarcastic, insinuating that the speaker could, in theory, care less, but that they care so very little that to care even less would be of no quantifiable consequence. To say "I couldn't care less" is simply a more direct way of communicating a similar idea. The problem is that people adopt colloquial phrases without understanding what they're saying, so the context in which it is used tends to be defensive, and lacking in the appropriate tonal inflection to signify its intent.
PS3Freak  +   255d ago
The phrase is only sarcastic if the person intended to use it that way.

99.99% of people who said "I could care less" actually stating that they couldn't care less.

"I could care less" is officially recognized as it's own idiom, but most of it's uses are incorrect.

iamnsuperman  +   256d ago
It's the only thing we have to judge how well these systems are doing. One officially figures start getting released we have to do with these. It isn't ideal as over a shorter time period Vg charts is less reliable. Over a longer period of time it is easier to use official figures as their is more of them (3 months sales figures, financial year data.....) but right now (2 months in) all we can use is Vg chartz
Death  +   256d ago
It's not the only source we can use, they are not a source. They are made up numbers. NPD, Charttrack, Mediacrate and announcements from the manufacturer are the only thing we can use. Last I looked into it there were 13 people "employed" by VGC that tracked, polled, compiled, and uploaded numbers from across the globe. Companies like NPD employ thousands and buy their numbers from retailers. VGC bases their numbers on a hunch.

I think it's possible Xbox One sold more in the US region for this period due to stock shortages of the PS4.

The true test will be how both perform once they have large numbers of stock on store shelves.

We will not see If The PS4 or xbone will win North America until there is proper supply of PS4. We all know there are a large supply of x1 . I think in the USA it will be the best market for the x1 . Worldwide I think x1 will be a flop .x1 sale in the U.K are weak 70000 it was a big market for 360 . Worldwide the PS4 is going to destroy the xbone by a larger margin than PS2vs 360. The PS4 is sold out in japan and has not launched in Asia yet! According to vg charts PS4 has a 1 million console lead on x1 .PS4 3.9 million x1 2.9 million and PS4 is in short supply .

I'm more shocked at the Wii U's numbers. It seems like they've been selling a lot better. So much talk about PS4 and Xbox one over the holidays and Wii U is selling just as good. not sure if Nintendo can keep it up but have to give credit where it's due.

@Itachi83
Just as good? How is being outsold by the PS4 nearly 3:1 just as good? The Wii U is selling horribly dude. Hell, in 1 or 2 weeks the PS4 is going to outsell its total units. Lets put this into perspective:

Wii U has been out for over 1 year.
PS4 has been about for just under 2 months.

MS is pushing hard in the US. They're desperately trying to salvage their market share, while Sony might have stretched themselves too thin.

Would be very interesting to know how many people had to settle for an xbone because they couldn't find any PS4s and were too impatient to wait for greatness.
Xbox over 3MILLION WW! That was fast!! Wonder what Sony's numbers are like?

It's great to see the Xbox One doing so well! So much for all that internet backlash and polls with PS4 getting 90% of the votes. The Xbox One is ahead in North America this week and not too far behind worldwide, despite being available in less than a third as many countries as the PS4, and being $100 more expensive. Microsoft must be really happy with the results.

I can't imagine what would happen if the Xbox One got a price cut to match the PS4.

6 Walmarts I go to on my route have PS4s and Xbox Ones in their cabinets.
