The PS4 is Dominating.
Just look at these sales, even the 3DS has a hard time catching up, and the PS4 isn't even released in Japan yet!
Gamer1982  +   208d ago
PS4s are getting easy enough to find now. Demand has died down somewhat and major stores like gamestop (in US) and GAME (in UK) as well as amazon who got the most stock from MS and Sony have stock now. Just those who got only a few consoles are still out of PS4s. Even with that PS4 is still nearly doubling the sales of Xbone. It also means people won't be buying an Xbone instead of PS4 because PS4 isn't available which i'm sure gave Xbone some sales before christmas as it was the only one of the 2 consoles available to find without a pre-order.
vigilante_man  +   208d ago
Anyone else noticed how VCGChartz have took off 2 million from the PS3 global sales?

They were at nearly 82 million a few months ago and have been selling more than the 360 every month world wide.

Now their 2+ million lead over the 360 has been wiped and they have the PS3 sales at below 81 million!!!

Conspiracy theories abound - or have the MS dollars landed?
SilentNegotiator  +   208d ago
With Vita on top of Wii U once again. "Wii U poor sales? Buh but Vita, so there!"

Both topped by PS3, though. That's kinda sad. Then again, being topped by a system as great as Ps3 isn't the worst shame you could suffer from :)

After buying Plus for my PS4 I realized that PS3 with PSN Plus may be the greatest console of all time.

I'm sure PS4 will be the same thing in a few years but there not enough games to give away AAA PS4 games free yet. Nonetheless, Resogun is amazingly addictive.
Gamer1982  +   208d ago
Yeah but Vita topping WiiU with ZERO games.. WiiU has an amazing lineup and some amazing games coming out and still cannot sell. This is because of market confusion, lack of 3rd party support and price. I would say the Vita is doing okay and with the new cheaper Vita coming out Feb 2nd its gonna do even better.
Shnazzyone  +   207d ago
hey... 3ds is beating ps4 in sales numbers.
truefan1  +   208d ago
I respect that,definitely some good sales for Sony. I'm also impressed with the XB1 numbers, even the Wii U aren't that bad. maybe if the leadership stopped with the doom and gloom, more people would buy one.
FlunkinMonkey  +   208d ago
Gosh.. When will you get a grip?

MS's 'doom and gloom', is solely down to incompetence, the fact it is a weaker system, a vast array of misjudgements, and their early adoption of the abuse of gamers rights.

More people would buy one if it was a PS4.
scott182  +   208d ago
ps4 and the DS compete weekly, hard to beat those weekly numbers from DS, maybe when the PS4 is out in Japan with decent stock everywhere else. Good numbers for hardware and software on the PS4 worldwide.

according to the global software totals
PS4 sold 10,117,698 and bone sold 8,288,472 which is approx difference of 1.8 million. Put this it the context because ps4 launched with fewer game only knack and kz apposed to a number of bone heavy hitters such as borza , dead rising , ryse and numerous others and manage to out sell M$.
Kakashi Hatake  +   208d ago
Well deserved sales for PS4. Good to see MS won't have a strong foothold this generation.
PassiveAttack  +   208d ago
As a Sony loyalist, that comment makes me sick to my stomach.
torchic  +   208d ago
why? nothing good can ever come from this current Microsoft being dominant in this, or any other generation. I must emphasise that I'm talking about the current MS hierarchy, they of course could turn over a new leaf.

objectively speaking, Sony dominating the generation is good for all gamers involved. it's selling like hotcakes, it's affordable and it's easy to develop for; that must be a publisher's dream. that means more games get green-lit for us!
#2.1.1 (Edited 208d ago ) | Agree(31) | Disagree(4) | Report
PassiveAttack  +   208d ago
Oh I don't know, maybe it's nice to show a little grace and be humble about it, but comments like that just make the rest of us look bad.

Competition is a good thing. Don't forget Sony dominated in the PS2 era and then look what happened with PS3. What abut the next next gen, what if Sony lets it get to their head because of that kind of consensus from fans and then try to take advantage of us. Don't think for a second MS isn't going to learn their lesson from this.

Don't be a bitch is what I'm saying.
SilentNegotiator  +   208d ago
If Xbone's preorders had been as high as PS4's or higher, Xboxers would have 24-hour DRM. Absolutely everyone should be happy that Xbox One stumbled out of the gate.

Furthermore, MS is already talking about budging on their horrible anti-developer publishing terms. The sort of thing they were ABLE to have last gen thanks to their small lead in the HD market. Imagine if they had a strong foothold this gen; those policies might have cemented themselves entirely in the gaming industry.
#2.1.3 (Edited 208d ago ) | Agree(24) | Disagree(1) | Report
PassiveAttack  +   208d ago
Yes Sony beating out MS was and is a good thing because it forced MS to back track. That's what healthy competition does. Sony absolutely running away with it this gen though isn't really a good thing either.

Again I point to the PS2 to PS3. It can still happen again so as a Sony loyalist I want MS to be right on Sony's ass just to keep Sony humble about what they have.

Comments like the first and subsequent are just disrespectful and show no class. I've seen Sony fans harping on MS fans for following their brand blindly, guess what? Most Sony "fanboys" do the same while shitting on the competition.

All I'm saying is show some class, show some respect and take Sony's lead with a grain of salt. Don't be a bitch because it could easily reverse next gen.

Hicken  +   208d ago
It doesn't make the rest of us look bad. That, in and of itself, is a sad fanboy mentality.

Kakashi doesn't speak for me. I can do that my damn self. I happen to, to a certain degree, agree with him- more through what torchic says.

Historically speaking, Sony's domination has meant good things for the industry; competition is only good for the industry when the competition is good. In other words, what use is it to compete against someone who's crap?

As for Sony getting arrogant again, why do you think that MS has learned their lesson, but that Sony somehow has not?

If you should be telling anyone "Don't be a bitch," it would be yourself, at this point.
MysticStrummer  +   208d ago
It should make you sick that XBL Gold's popularity is a huge reason why much of online play with PS+ is now a paid service. MS having less influence is a good thing. Now we need to work on EA...
Bathyj  +   208d ago
"Sony dominated in the PS2 era and then look what happened with PS3."

Good point.

Exactly the reason MS needs to get beaten down right now and taught some damn humility.

Sonys arrogance was never as bad as MS is and even when they did think their sh*t didnt stink, they still had the gamers at heart. The two companies couldnt be more different in their approach.

Yes, I agree competition is a good thing in theory. In practice however Sony domination was a golden age for everyone who was there, and I dont think they will make the same mistakes twice which incidentally, that mistake was a bit too much bravado and an expensive machine that still was the best console of its generation. Half the stuff Sony got hassled for (like forcing Bluray) everyone agrees was the best choice now.

I agree with Mystic, MS competing and offering an alternative is fine, but the less say they have in how things are done the better.
Sheikh Yerbouti  +   208d ago
Vote me down with Passive Attack, guys.

Let MS do good enough to keep the XBox relevant and your lil' fanboy war ongoing. It's good to see Sony hold its ground, but I always knew it would. These two companies compliment each other on their strengths and weakness - hardware/software and innovation/marketing. I am not saying go out and buy a XBox One - that'd be crazy - just know that MS keeps Sony on its toes, and vice versy, which in the end is good for all.

I'm not sure where these "Vita is DOOOOOOOOMED" sayings are coming from.

It beat the Wii U and the 360 again.
Sayai jin  +   208d ago
@TomShoe- I think the Vita will be fine. Don't get me wrong I want the Vita to do well too, but you are comparing a handheld to consoles. How did it stack up against the other handheld? That would be the right comparison.

Eonjay  +   208d ago
Looks like the PS4 has to sell about 250k over the next 13 days to hit 5 million before February. Stock is officially avaliable again on 1/19/2014 here in the US (Best Buy) so it will be interesting to see if sales continue downward or if it stock was constraining sales.

Wii U leads PS4 by ~800k
PS4 leads Xbox One ~1.5 Million
Wii U leads Xbox One by ~2.25 Million
Ol_G  +   207d ago
funny thing is you have articles claiming ps4 and x1 already surpassed wii u life time sales fanboys are funny creatures
Eonjay  +   207d ago
@Ol_G

The numbers were updated. Nothing I can do about that now.
OldDude  +   208d ago
Bonehead comment. Sony and MS push each other for better market-share and gamer's win. I own both, both are great. Try not being so narrow minded.
mochachino  +   208d ago
Me too, otherwise it would be like last gen with "competitor games can't look better" policies.
MasterCornholio  +   208d ago
Very impressive sales for the PS4 and they should explode once the consoles releases in Japan. According to the numbers the PS4 is about to surpass Sonys sales expectations which is a very good thing to see.
G20WLY  +   208d ago
Yep, looks like PS4 will pass 5 million before it's Japanese release, which has to be encouraging!

It's a longshot, but it MIGHT possibly over take Wii U lifetime sales by the end of February - which would just be barmy! :O

Wii U has some decent titles coming up though, so it's certainly not a given, by any stretch.

Impressive PS4 numbers, the xbone is competing directly with PS3 it seems. Also somehow the PSVita sold more than 360.
WeAreLegion  +   208d ago
I think having three of the top five consoles is pretty admirable. I don't want to see the Vita or Wii U doing this poorly though. Hoping for strong numbers on both this year.
DoggyBiscuit  +   208d ago
Unlike all the trolls in this site I wanna see all consoles do good they is no better entertainment than gaming
MysticStrummer  +   208d ago
It doesn't take a troll to be disturbed about the influence of certain companies on the gaming industry. Those companies are better left at the back of the pack.
OldDude  +   208d ago
You mean influences like causing the other guy to improve their online experience, or come out with PS+, or achievements and trophy's. Yeah they have been a total disaster for the industry /s. Both have their positives and negatives, but in the end they both play great games.
MysticStrummer  +   208d ago
@OldDude - Your opinion apparently differs from mine. I see MS's influence as having been more negative than postive, and not just in gaming. As for online experience, all I want to do is play certain games online, which I was able to do just fine with both PS2 and PS3. Achievements and Trophies are both wastes of time in my opinion.
torchic  +   208d ago
wow looks like Xbox 360 is going to die a long, painful death this year, shame on you Microsoft!
DevilishSix  +   208d ago
It would be right in line with what they did to the original Xbox. 360 has had very few exclusives in the last couple years, so its been dying a slow death for awhile, the sales numbers just hadn't caught up with the situation.
Regis  +   208d ago
Well anniversary games should bring the sales up a little. Like Fable. I been wanting to play a remake for like forever.
5eriously  +   208d ago
Fantastic show for the XBone competing in the same league as the PS3 while the PS4 competes with the 3ds! (WINK)

FANTASTIC SHOW Sony. Well deserved. Soon there would be no more doubt, even in the eyes of the opposition!
Geobros  +   208d ago
wow!!! Kirby and Pokemon in top....
DevilishSix  +   208d ago
I hope the competition between PS4 and X1 continues, but PS4 is almost doubling X1 and thats with shortages and no Japan sales. X1 could be in trouble before long. I hope that doesn't happen we need competition, especially since Nintendo has phoned it in.
KakashiHotake  +   208d ago
Every time I go on Amazon hoping to buy a PS4 they're always sold out. At 1st I took it as a good sign ( atleast they're selling ) but now it's becoming kind of sad.
hellzsupernova  +   208d ago
There have been two restock sat online retailers show up on this website
Why not jump on board then?
KakashiHotake  +   208d ago
Because even those retailers are out of stock by the time I check it out. It almost seems like Sony's sending 100 PS4's at at time, which will be out of stock in minutes flat.
hellzsupernova  +   208d ago
Ah I see well that's a shame, why don't you buy now and get a number in the list of orders that way you will get a console next shipment?

Here in NZ the ps4 has been in the top ten best selling since it was announced, (on the biggest online retailer) and they just sell out so i know how you feel. Sony stores are saying wait until march and that was before Xmas.
ShinnokDrako  +   208d ago
PS4 domination in the houses and VERY close to the 3DS! Instead the Xbone tries to win against the PS3, managing somehow. Is it a bit sad or it's just my impression? I mean, it's a next gen console, praised by many... well, sales aren't bad at all, but... mh... we'll see in March if something changes.
S2Killinit  +   208d ago
so now the gap is at 1.5 million. it seems to be increasing slowly but steadily.
