Wow The ps4 completely obliterated everything and the Xbox one got beat by the ps4,3DS and ps3......again.

xHeavYx850d ago

Daaaaaaaaaaamn, that Japan launch really helped. That gap keeps widening

GarrusVakarian850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

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.

bleedsoe9mm850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

@Lukas_Japonicus allot of new ps+ members who are planning or already have a ps4 , buying a ps3 for the value . really smart move by sony

xHeavYx850d ago

@Bleedsoe
True, you can hardly find a better value when it comes to consoles

Army_of_Darkness850d ago

I think more people are buying PS3's now because of finally realizing how PS+ works.
PS3+ PS plus= instant awesome game collection.

Thatguy-310850d 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.

Muerte2494850d ago

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.

GribbleGrunger850d ago (Edited 850d 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.

darthv72850d ago

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.

Especially knack, i figured that would be something the JP market would really cling to.

amiga-man850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

Crazy numbers, Sony are killing it

http://www.google.co.uk/img...

WeAreLegion850d ago

Just to clarify, Knack is on top because it comes with the PS4 in Japan.

GribbleGrunger850d ago

Don't forget, that's only 2 days sales for Japan.

dedicatedtogamers850d ago

Wait, how did Vita outsell 360? I thought 360 was still going strong. Anyway, congrats to Sony for their great products. The other game companies need to perk up and pay attention.

NewMonday850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

anybody notice the WiiU and Vita starting to do good numbers, they are in the same zone as the XB1.

mewhy32850d ago

the xbone got beat by the PS3.

scott182850d ago

Go Ps3! Still goin strong.

PS4 on another level.

Akuma07850d ago

Damn.... Even the PS Vita nearly sold as much as the XB1. That is just so terrible for XBox.

TheRedButterfly850d ago

@ Eonjay

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

Xsilver850d ago

yup PS4 will be at 6 mil in no time.

FITgamer850d ago

I'm sure it' already passed 6 mil seeing as there has been a week of sales since these sales numbers.

Clarence850d ago (Edited 850d 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.

vigilante_man849d ago

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!

Angels3785850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

Seeing how this is VG chartz........PS4 is likely over 6 mil.

This week PS4 outsold xboxONE 9-1 roughly
Total sales is roughly 2-1

GarrusVakarian850d ago

Lol yeah, they always mark down the PS4.

Hatsune-Miku850d ago

Playstation nation
Ps4 is dominating like it should for being the best gaming platform in the world.

Ps4 is the future and the future is ps4

Spontogical850d ago

Ok, that's enough of the "PS4 is the future..." link Miku-san.

Unreal01850d ago

Yeah please stop. I'm a big Sony fan, but I can't be dealing with this slogan thingy anymore.

slazer101850d ago

What astonishes me is who the heck is buying the PSP?

Majin-vegeta850d ago

modders?I have two modded PSP.

cell989850d ago

the psp is great for playing all those retro Super nes, nes,sega games

PSX04850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

PlayStation 3 still has most interesting titles like castlevania lords of shadow 2 and GTA V and dark soul 2 and more ... tell us if you waiting anything for xbone ?? titanfall, pleeeeeeeease, you can enjoy the game on your old console x360 with the same resolution on the new Microsoft console or even better on you pc

Bruce_Wayne850d ago

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.

Gamer1982849d 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..

medman850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

Dems some smelly xbones. Nobody wants em'.

CrazedFiend850d ago

Ps4 did more than everything else combined (o_O)...

El_Assenso849d ago

VG Cgartz is undertracking the PS4 by a couple hundred thousand how on bloomin earth are they only 2.29 million ahead after selling 400k+ consoles when in the previous week the gap was 2 million!?

El_Assenso849d ago

Knack sold like hot cakes! Wow! I really enjoyed playing that game.

dp277407850d ago

Even if you took out Japan it would still be over hundred thousand.

GamersHeaven850d ago

PS4 is killing it I guarantee a kinectless bone bundle announcement at E3.

xHeavYx850d ago

The One is doing so bad that they may just lower the price and still include Kinect

bleedsoe9mm850d ago (Edited 850d 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

cell989850d ago

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

Angels3785850d ago

@Heavy

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

respekanize91850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

nothing worse then knowing you backed a losing horse within 90 days...think about whats gonnna happen when people like me that have one PS4 already go and buy another when it drops to $299.

How about this breakdown of the numbers:

ps3/psv outsold xbox one and xbox360 by over 10,000

JBSleek850d ago

"nothing worse then knowing you backed a losing horse within 90 days"

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.

Flamingweazel850d 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.

djplonker850d ago (Edited 850d ago )

More proof I made the right choice picking the ps4 in February after spending most of last gen on 360!

Flamingweazel850d ago

you did, MS business practices are pretty bad anyway.

GotEnder850d ago

just my opinion but the wii's success hurt the xbox brand. microsoft wanted a piece of the casual market and were willing to sacrifice hardcore gamers to achieve their goal.

T2850d ago

maybe true but that's not really the result of wii, more of a result of trying to steal casual marketshare from wii and getting burned by ipads... bad decision.

GW212850d ago

Yup. Me too. Had an XB1 preordered. Cancelled it and got a PS4 at the last minute. Some dude on eBay made some good scratch off of me. Oh well.
