PS4 nearly doubles Xbox One sales this week.(assuming this chart is accurate)

Is this going to become a trend? Is the Xbox One selling poorly or is the PS4 just doing really well?

TomShoe861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

I have a feeling things will keep going like this. After Titanfall and Kinect Sports, there is no Xbox AAA exclusive with a release date. PS4 will most likely continue to lead sale throughout February, but March will be up in the air with two big AAA games coming out.

Speaking of PS4: http://i.imgur.com/6JfjzYf....

EDIT: Isn't it amazing that Smash Bros 3 and Mario Kart Wii have been out for nearly SIX years and they're still in the top 100? Ridiculous.

Abash861d ago

Just wait till inFamous: Second Son launches, PS4 sales will get even crazier around then in the USA

Eonjay861d ago

Well the gap isn't closing...as some had predicted. It only gets bigger

Last week it was 165k This week the gap is 242k (which is larger that than all hardware combined sold last week.)

HomerJDog861d ago

so after infamous what's next.

scott182861d ago

^
The order, Drive club and deep down a bit after I would think. other major releases they are probably waiting for E3 to say.

illustratedDEO860d ago

Forget that ...what about a whole another week from know, that Japan PS4 Console launch.

itBourne860d ago

Titan Fall will most likely effect X1 sales more then every exclusive Sony has this year.. MS is 10x better at marketing then Sony, and Titan Fall is another CoD mass market money maker. Which sucks, I wanted the shooter genre to refresh and actually change this gen.

amiga-man860d ago (Edited 860d ago )

PS4 almost double the sales of the xboxone, if Sony could keep up with demand who knows how big the gap would be.

if VGA charts is showing such a lead it really isn't looking good for the xboxone, official numbers will almost certainly show the PS4 with even greater numbers

UltimateMaster860d ago

@itBourne
I don't know how much Microsoft is spending on marketing. Certainly a sh*t to of cash compared to Sony PS4 which has virtually no marketing.
But the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One.
In my book that means that marketing isn't remotely effective.

abzdine860d ago

inFamous, DriveClub are around the corner!
People also understand how amazing value PS+ has.

Titanfall?? it's coming to PC and 360. Why bother?

Perjoss860d ago

"so after infamous what's next."

Greatness

MazzingerZ860d ago

Don't forget MLB 14 is also launching soon

stuna1861d ago

It's going to be hilariously funny when it turns out these numbers are off by a large margin! I have to take a screenshot quick.

GribbleGrunger861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

VGChartz hasn't adjusted the X1 numbers down since the January NPD numbers came in. They have the X1 overtracked by around 100,000 units and the PS4 undertracked by 10,000 (so pretty accurate there)

And on a side note, the PS4 is now approaching 3:1 in sales WW against the X1, WITHOUT Japan.

The PS4 is going to have a 3.2 - 3.4 million lead by this fiscal year.

stuna1861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

Yeah I know, I was one of the ones who pointed out the PS4 was undertracked by almost 300,000 consoles! Which is why I made the comment.

They changed it when Sony went public! My comment is the 8th page of my comment history.

GribbleGrunger861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

I Apologise :) And a bubble for the my mistake, but where are you getting the 300,000 undertracked from? They were only 10,000 out for January.

The X1 is dead in Europe, will be dead on arrival in Japan and now it's dying in the US. It's not over yet but those shareholders are going to have very tight buttocks at the moment.

For some reason VGChartz decided to just split the difference between their own numbers and the NPD numbers with the adjustments:

PS4 undertracked 10k, adjusted up 5k.
3DS overtracked 70k, adjusted down 33k.
XBO overtracked 88k, adjusted down 46k.
Wii U overtracked 37k, adjusted down 27k.

stuna1861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

@Gribble

Even looking at the figures, doesn't strike you as kind of odd that even here in the U S the gap is steady shrinking, but yet there are no concrete sales data to account for just how much, but looking at the numbers it's shrinking pretty fast.

After looking at your last response with the sales figures I notice a pattern, all the ones you listed were overtracked except 1 the PS4, and looking at VGchartz it has been consistently undertracked since release.

GribbleGrunger861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

We'll have to wait until after the Japanese launch to start seeing more consistent numbers. Sony will have and will be stockpiling for the Japanese launch (probably between 800,000 to 2.2 million) but once the spike settles down and the average appears, Sony will then allocate those free consoles to the US and Europe.

I think we'll be looking at between 220k - 280k a week on average with the occasional spike of 370 - 450k when the bigger games release, depending on the title. I would think an Infamous: Second Son spike will be closer to my highest estimate and Thief my lower estimate (for example).

GribbleGrunger861d ago

Just to note: Thief might be a bad example but you should get what I mean.

Rimeskeem860d ago

Its going to be hilarious when you are wrong

NeoTribe860d ago

Your prolly right. I think ps4 is winning by a larger margin than this. It surely will be once japan launches lol.

Prime157860d ago

Hey, gribble, when do you take over for pachter? Lol.

I'm just saying, I agreed with your analysis as I've seen and concluded too.

abzdine860d ago

i agree! take a screen fast so you can laugh at yourself when NPD numbers come out :)

BattleN860d ago

I remember when WiiU was selling 3k a month so it looks like it's seeing a small boost unless the numbers are off like you say.

GribbleGrunger860d ago

I just spotted a typo in one of my previous posts!

(probably between 800,000 to 2.2 million)

should be

(probably between 800,000 to 1.2 million)

Riderz1337861d ago

A bit of both really. PS4 doing super well, Xbox One is selling like shit (No offence to shit).

IIZANGETSUII861d ago

Enough with your fanboyism, "selling like shit" even when its selling faster than 360? LMAO with your logic, just because the PS4 its the superior console and offers a better value overall doesnt mean the One is selling like "shit", get your facts straight.

Riderz1337861d ago

You're telling me to get my facts straight when you say the Xbone is selling faster than the 360?

Comparison to other consoles during the 1st week of their 1st February's:

Wii- 221k
PS4- 140k
360- 81k
PS3- 67k
Xbox One- 53k
Wii U- 37k

The Xbone is only selling faster than the Wii U.

Get your facts straight bro.

reaperofsouls860d ago

" no offence to shit " funny + bubble for you sir

condemmedman860d ago

I can't really begin to explain the total horse manure coming from you idiots. Xboxone dead already? wow I'm still getting one and titan fall. see you online titans.

come_bom861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

Is anybody surprised by these numbers?

If Microsoft doesn't do something, their numbers are going to get worse and worse... I predict the Xbox One will reach WiiU numbers after the Titanfall fever, if the X1 continues at 500$.

Seriously !!! ... $500 console. Microsoft never learns.

HaveAsandwich860d ago

if titanfall can't sell it, what will? that game is the bread and butter of the xb1. it's the epitome of the xb1 experience, for the next year, at least. it's everything an xb1 type buyer typically wants in a game.....

ChickenOfTheCaveMan860d ago

They need to get rid of that Kinect bs and drop to 400$, even my dumb dog could figure that out.

reaperofsouls860d ago

@ HaveAsandwich

the problem with titanfall is that M$ are launching it on the 360 as well so there no reason to buy a Xbone if you want it, so i don't predict much of an upturn in xbone sales

bryam1982861d ago

but...but...but the cloud!!!

QuickdrawMcgraw861d ago

I know N4G is severely slanted toward MS,and it is not a safe thing to give Sony any kind of a compliment here on N4Xbox.But Sony really seems to be doing well in what became Xbox territory last gen.Maybe they will take back a good chunk of the US market.

AWBrawler861d ago

you're new huh? n4g is Sony turf

pupa860d ago

Only since the E3 M$ Xbone reveal and DRM disaster. For most of the prior gen any Sony PS3 owner who dared to comment on N4G were lambasted. The wheel turned and all that's left of the old entourage are the Xbox apologists and M$ shill's as from the numbers it seems that most gamers defected to the console of note or became multi console owners!

condemmedman860d ago

quick and pupa seriously deluded. unbelievable?!
Xbox territory lol you must be trolling

pupa860d ago

"condemmedman
quick and pupa seriously deluded. unbelievable?!
Xbox territory lol you must be trolling"

Yea you' are really the deluded condemned man condemmedman as all you did was trolling instead of backing up your statement.

Pleas explain then why the PS4 are outselling the Xbone 2:1 worldwide including in America. Considering that achievement tells me that the USA for now are Sony PS4 territory in my books.

Ask dad or big brother as maybe they are wise enough to know, hell even ask mum in the kitchen as maybe she can count and thus understand the numbers like 2:1 sales ratio(50%) more in favour of the PS4!

reaperofsouls860d ago (Edited 860d ago )

If you look at the global sales for this week then ps4 / bone is nearly 3:1. i'll do the maths

PS4 = 140,308 bone = 53,670

140308 / 53670 = 2.6
= 3 to 1.SF

If you look at the global totals then PS4 has sold 1.8 million more unit than the bone already! and we still are waiting for the japan launch which will be plus another million at least.

Gamer1982860d ago

Double sales in MS home territory in which they dominated last generation. Its a pretty bad in Europe too and once Japan enters the fray its gonna get a whole lot worse.

harrisk954860d ago

Well, the PS4 is the number one selling video game item and number 1 electronics item on Amazon. It is almost he most wished for item on Amazon. XB1 is number 31. There were PS4s available yesterday. They are sold out today again. XB1 continues to sit and has never been unavailable since Christmas.

Wow. Okay lets hope they didn't overtrack the Xbox One again because that would be a shame. The lead grows.

Zeldass hahaha. Oh god, there's just no escaping the world's greatest Zelda tattoo.

WeAreLegion861d ago

It outsold the Wii U this week. Both consoles will be fine.

http://www.vgchartz.com/cha...

Geekman861d ago

Nowhere on that chart did I see such a thing. And according to THIS chart, the Wii U outsold it far more. The Vita DID outsell it a couple of weeks ago, which might be where this information came from.

Majin-vegeta861d ago

Great not only do i have to keep seeing that article on my feed but now yoUr grav??*Shrugs shoulder* Ehh could be worse.

OT:I would take these numbers with a grain since it;s vgchartz.But that don;t mean PS4 aint kicking butt

Man, I wished n4g removed that post. I dont want anyone seeing my browser open with that image. They might think im looking at porn or something.

MRMagoo123861d ago

All it means is the ps4 is doing even better than what vg says as per usual.

Geekman861d ago

I can't say I agree with you, nor can I say I don't like your picture ID.

MRMagoo123861d ago

Is it just me or anyone else noticing a massive influx of "new" accounts that troll Sony , is this the only thing left for xbone fangirls to turn to because of the xbone downward ?

It's getting pretty sad now and should really have something done about it.

Paulie_gualtieri860d ago

lol how am i trolling??

I'm dead serious.How can you look at vitas sales and say otherwise?

God damn.Say anything but praise for Sony and you're an instant outcast.

stuna1860d ago

No you're not the only one noticed! I was saying it yesterday, but the new accounts are even more prevalent in any and all TitanFall articles. And you guessed it, nothing but positive PR at its finest.

sAVAge_bEaST860d ago

ZeldaAsstro.turfer.. Just say'n .. M$ has to try and sway that opinion, One way, or another.

Yeah it's a shame. It's a great little handheld, with some superb games and doesn't deserve to die, unlike the bone.

Naga861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

If the figures are accurate, that represents a fairly substantial drop-off in sales for both next gen consoles, given the meteoric rate at which they had both been selling for the months prior.

But to be honest, I find the global sales disparity for the week much more striking:
PS4 - 140,308
XB1 - 53,670

Eonjay861d ago

Its not possible to say because one of them keeps selling out.

Naga861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

Note that I simply said drop-off in sales, not drop-off in consumer interest. I think you may have mistaken my statement for the latter.

Eonjay861d ago

No I understood what you meant. I just get frustrated because I can't make accurate predictions when they don't have stock. I want to know what actual demand is but its really impossible to tell. The only really why its important to me is because I want to be able to definitely disprove rumors that console gaming is in decline.

Naga861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

Ah, that makes sense. I didn't realize that was a rumor in circulation.

At this point, I'd say it's readily apparent that we have a very healthy industry. And as far as Sony and Microsoft are concerned, they are in control of their own destinies. If Microsoft can deliver on the game front (Titanfall, Project Spark, Halo, etc.), and if Sony can continue to just be Sony while delivering supply... then we will have a long road of healthy competition ahead of us.

Gamer1982860d ago

Hmm its true finally got my PS4 this week but took me a few weeks to finally get one. Had to constantly log onto Argos at midnight to quickly reserve one for pickup the next day.. Persistence paid off though 3 weeks of trying netted me my PS4. I feel there won't be as much of a problem after Japanese launch.
