Daaaaaaaaaaamn, that Japan launch really helped. That gap keeps widening
Lukas_Japonicus  +   585d ago | Well said
I can understand the PS4 outselling the X1, especially since it just launched in Japan.....

....But how is the X1 being outsold by the PS3 week after week? The demand for an 8 year old console is stronger than a 3 month old next gen machine...that simply should not be happening.

Interesting how that even if you take away the Japan sales of the PS4, it still doubles the X1 sales.

I think more people are buying PS3's now because of finally realizing how PS+ works.
PS3+ PS plus= instant awesome game collection.
dboyc310  +   585d ago
A lot of people that didn't have ps+ before the ps4 are seeing the great value now since a lot of AAA titles are being offered through the ps+ game collection. It's just great when the service covers all Sony platforms. That way my PS3/PS4/PS vita library just keeps growing and growing without much of a hassle.

PS3 with PS+ is more of a value currently than a Xbox One. You're still improving your collection on your ps3 getting games like Bioshock:Infinite, Devil May Cry (Team Ninja), and Tomb Raider (Mar.4th). XBL games with Gold isn't offering anything close to this. Also some amazing discounts for being a PS+ member with "Games of 2013" sale.

They can't drop the price because investors don't want to take more of a hit from the Xbox Division than they already have. You're better off having a PS4 for amazing exclusives and upgrading your old gaming pc rig in the corner. I don't even see Xbox One being a companion system anymore. You can just throw a tuner card in your rig also and literally throw away your DVR.
GribbleGrunger  +   585d ago
This is why counting on Titanfall is futile. By the time that title hits, the PS4 will have close to a 3 million lead and Infamous: Second Son + MGS: Twin Snakes is going to keep the PS4 pretty even in sales for March anyway.

Since Stephen Elop took over the division, we've seen a price drop, Titanfall being given away and a new two year subscription for Xbox Live. Now people may think that's great, but Elop could be (as he was for Nokia) trying to create a more attractive proposition for a sell off. I'm not saying that IS the case but I'd certainly be weary.

Baring in mind that shareholders are not happy about Xbox and want to see it sold off (along with Bing), do people honestly think they'd be happy about these deals? If not -- and that's likely -- what could MS have said to keep them happy? A big pay off from a swift sale would certainly go some way to persuade them down this avenue.

As I said in another thread, Titanfall is the most important game MS have ever released and 'possibly' the most apt title for a new IP. Watch this space.

Have to admit that even with the PS3 sales down by 8% it still beat the 18% increase the xb1 had. Good job overall Sony.

That's because it was bundled in with every Japanese PS4 - not because people were going out and buying it separately.

FITgamer  +   585d ago
I'm sure it' already passed 6 mil seeing as there has been a week of sales since these sales numbers.
Clarence  +   585d ago
This is vgchartz. The PS4 is probably already at 6m. We all know how vgchartz under tracks Playstation numbers.

Sony is really killing it this time around. With ps+ you get great games for your subscription. You would be a fool not to pay for it.

M$ still has time to turn it around, but they really need to show that they are all about their customers. They should start by offering better games to live subscribers.

Big queation is where are all the unsold XB1s being kept? MS said they were producing the same amount as PS4 units before the release.

There may well be 300,000 or so still unsold in stores around the world but where are the other 2-3 million units?

They will be giving them away soon!
Angels3785  +   585d ago
Seeing how this is VG chartz........PS4 is likely over 6 mil.

This week PS4 outsold xboxONE 9-1 roughly

I've said it before and I'll say it again. By the end of 2014, PS4 will be at 20-22m consoles. Holiday 2014 will be a mess at stores. Xbones meanwhile, will be nicely stacked in abundance. I see Wii U at 13m and Xbone at about 13m too. PS4 will take away all its steam. Wii U is for other kinds of gamers. PS4 sales will not affect Wii U as much as Xboner.
Gamer1982  +   584d ago
If PS4 gets anywhere near 10m difference over the xbone 3rd party support will start to waver and only the checkbook will save MS and they can't pay for everything. Remember ealry years of 360 when it had a ton of exclusives even when the ps3 was launched? That was the because of the difference in install base and it made making the game on that console less of a gamble..

bleedsoe9mm  +   585d ago
personally i think they have to drop the price and keep the kinect for the media side , a kinectless xb1 is just a similar priced console , that has weaker hardware , not very compelling unless they can substantially undercut sony's price

You read my mind @bleedsoe9mm without kinect the xbone should still be less than the PS4 since it still has inferior hardware.

this is Microsoft we are talking about....kinectless seems more likely. they aren't going to give stuff away..

That is a rather silly comment to make. Under that argument PS3 should of easily been crushed. It's only been a few months a winner couldn't be crowned.
Flamingweazel  +   585d ago
It's not silly, Xbox does not have World wide appeal of europe, asia to catch up. The only reason 360 did as well as it did was they rushed it out early and it was cheaper, we are seeing how string the Ps brand is WW versus xbox. sm only chance to even be competitive is outsell PS4 2:1 or more in the US, that is not happening.

There's a lot of ridiculous comments about this week's chart, but yours is spot on. PS4 outselling the X1 by its current margin I can live with, but X1 being outsold by ps3 is not a pretty picture...

I wouldnt want to be at Microsofts next board meeting after seeing that!
Illionaire  +   585d ago
1 of 3 scenarios.

1. They think (the multiplatform game) Titanfall is going to save the Xbox One.

2. They're trying to figure out who they can sell the division to.

3. They're going to switch the focus of the Xbox One and try (ex.) a more kid orientated market using Kinect and push TV features to your parents. Basically stop trying to compete with the PS4.
fonger08  +   585d ago
@Illionaire they are not going to sell their Xbox divison anytime soon. They are getting killed this generation (so far obviously) but they done worse (see original Xbox). Secondly there maybe a .00001% chance they drop everything to "kid" oriented market. They rushed an over priced system out the door with media priorities taking over gaming, and now they are paying for it.
numNuts  +   585d ago
On the contrary. I'd love to be a fly on the wall at MS next board meeting.

Nice try though Link.

stragomccloud  +   585d ago
I'm not even sure how to respond, because I'm not exactly sure what your angle is, or where you're even coming from. Either you have misinterpreted my comment, or my intent, or I have misinterpreted your apparent interpretation.

So allow me to clarify:
Wii U first week sales in Japan raked up 307,471 units sold. PS4 raked in 322,083 units in its first week. Maintaining momentum is vital in Japan because the market is more interested in handheld gaming than console gaming. I hope they keep the sales up because I like Japanese console games, and I don't want the market to become such that there becomes less and less software on the console side versus the handheld side.

In case you think I might be trolling:
I might not have a PS4 at the moment, but I have long owned both Sony and Nintendo platforms(Heck I'm even one of the few Vita owners out there), though admittedly I'm actually a PC gamer first and foremost. The Legend of Zelda just happens to be my favorite franchise.... followed by Mass Effect... so whatever point you're trying to make, I really must confess I am lost. But it seems you are trying to make the assumption that someone with a Link picture, would only make such a comment to troll. I've been gaming since before people became so hateful and jaded. I go where the games are, and I enjoy games regardless of the console they appear on.

Not surprising at all considering the ps4's just released in japan.
