1-2 weeks left and the PS4 will overtake Wii U in USA (already done in Europe)
2-3 weeks for the One

jackanderson19851062d ago (Edited 1062d 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)

B1663r1062d ago

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.

cell9891062d 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

imt5581062d ago (Edited 1062d 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?

mediate-this1062d ago

Ok we get it, ps4 is harder to buy, just beating a dead horse with that ps4 is harder to statement. They are both doing good, ps4 a little better.

SITH1062d ago

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?

PS3Freak1062d ago (Edited 1062d 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.

JokesOnYou1062d ago (Edited 1062d ago )

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.

Prime1571062d ago

@sith "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?"

If you are an adult, what made you so self-righteous and motivated to post that?

Exactly.

P_Bomb1062d ago

@jokes
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

JokesOnYou1062d ago (Edited 1062d 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.

mikeslemonade1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

"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.

I guess sales only matters about ps4 that all

LOL_WUT1062d ago

Says the guy who cheerleads for Nintendo's 3Ds and occasional WiiU sales LOL! ;)

lifeisgamesok1062d ago

Wow it's so close but seriously I could care less who sells more

Only fanboys care about who sells more and even though I prefer Xbox One I'd get a PS4 too for Uncharted

MasterCornholio1062d ago

Judging from the comments you make. I doubt that you will buy a PS4.

Your not fooling anyone.

DanielGearSolid1062d ago

Lol, idk wats worse, the delusional outspoken fanboy or the sneak fanboy, on the low

MasterCornholio1062d ago

@DanielGearSolid

I'm a fanboy of good gaming.

Sue me.

pyramidshead1062d ago

Have to agree with you there on that comment. lol.
Everyone by now knows the likely lot if they lurk here less than a month.

OT: Cannot wait for those big numbers that pop up on the 13th. Comment sections are going to be a warzone, heh.

lifeisgamesok1062d ago

Playstation 1 is still my 2nd favorite console of all time and the one I've had the most memories with

NewMonday1062d ago

@MasterCornholio

don't be surprised many are starting to warm up to the PS4 now, better late then never.

hopefully this means the gaming community will be more united.

H0RSE1062d ago (Edited 1062d 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.

AceBlazer131062d ago

@HORSE we'll be one big happy xbone hating community lol.

MajorMayhem701062d ago

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.

@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?

darren_poolies1062d ago

Couldn't care less, you COULDN'T care less. Why can't people get this right?!!!

H0RSE1062d 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.

PS3Freak1062d ago (Edited 1062d 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.

SilentNegotiator1062d ago (Edited 1062d ago )

You should care. MS's relatively tiny lead in the HD race last gen gained them a LOT of lean with developers. Sales of hardware have a massive impact on the industry.

DEEBO1062d ago

So now the vchartz numbers are fine to use? only when the numbers support your system of choice. lol

iamnsuperman1062d 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

Death1062d ago (Edited 1062d 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.

JackieCruise691062d ago

Yepp, pretty much.
That's how I see it, double standards.

bunt-custardly1062d ago (Edited 1062d ago )

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.
