Well done to the X1, up 18%.

...Ouch, those WiiU numbers.

BelkingOfSony1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

i wonder what released for xbox one which caused the increase in numbers in the US?

Edit - oops my bad, it's VGChartz, the website run by the butthurt xbox fanboy.

SardoNumspa1570d ago

Because the Xbox fan who runs vgchartz made them up that way.

Eonjay1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

Technically it doesn't make sense unless they are counting the bundle preorders in with the sales. Sales shouldn't be up. Most folks are going for the Titanfall 3/11 bundle (at least at Gamestop and Amazon). So either this is inaccurate or they are counting Titanfall bundles.

AGaryColemanClone1570d ago

Of course the fake vgchartz.com numbers don't make sense. This is the site that made up fake preorder numbers of only 200k for Infamous not thinking Sony would release the real numbers of 600k.

scott1821570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

X1 improved with Titanfall (according to VGchartz), but it is very close... Sony should do an Infamous bundle in the US, I think it would do well also.

SardoNumspa1570d ago

As most people already know, vgchartz was started by an Xbox fan, ioi, from neogaf who got permanently banned for making up ridiculously fake Xbox sales numbers. Say what you will about neogaf, but the site has people with access to real console hardware and software sales data. After he got banned from neogaf he made his fake sales site vgchartz. Every week he sits home making up Xbox hardware and software sales numbers that he thinks are large as he thinks he can get away with. And he does, obviously, the opposite with Playstation numbers. It really is amazing that there are Xbox fans who actually think some guy does weekly global retail tracking from his home - something that massive consumer tracking firms like NPD are only able to do once a month that they charge everyone in the games industry for.

plasticidolatry1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

@AGaryColemanClone That 600k pre-order number is a rumor from "insiderp", not Sony. Also insiderp claimed it was 600k worldwide, while vgcharts only tracks US preorders.

Vgcharts and "insiderp" both agree that Titanfall US preorders are about 380k. These are all rumors and estimates so take it all with a big grain of salt.

Muerte24941570d ago

@ plasticidolatry,

Sorry but VGChartz always update their numbers to match a more reliable source. They do the same thing with MediaCreate, UK NPD, and US NPD. Everything else are just random guess based off pure speculation. Insiderp, has proved that his claims have some truth to them. VGChartz number are usually off by alot (undertrack PS3/PS4, overtrack Xbox/Xbox One).

Concertoine1570d ago

Well plants vs zombies and titanfall coming up.
Maybe it will be the system seller no one expects it to be.
I dont get how you guys can look at 4 months of vgchartz correctly reporting sony smashing MS, and even after they incorrectly estimated the xbone sold worse than the damn wii u, and still cry xbox fanboy the off chance the xbone does beat the ps4. Ridiculous.

Muerte24941570d ago

track my comment according to VGChartz Microsoft has done ~145k In USA for the month of Feburary.

NewMonday1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

the X1 increase from TitanFall bundle, the jump will be even higher on release day, it will sustain for a few weeks.

the hardware crown will most likly go to XB1 in the March NPD, but after that sales will hit a big nose dive because no other game can get the same kind of hype, and the PS4 will get all the attention because Sony still have DriveClub and the Order lined up alongside exclusive marketing and content for Destiny and Watch Dogs.

that is when the big Xbone price cuts will start.

ABizzel11570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

@belkingofsony & others

Stop it. I said this would happen a while ago. Plats vs. Zombies is out and TitanFall is coming the following week, so numbers are obviously going to go up simply because some people don't know about the TitanFall bundle, or simply just want their XBO before it comes out so they can have everything up to date and jump right in and play.

As I said the XBO will likely outsell the PS4 in NA for the month of March, however, WW it's still going to be a win for the PS4 thanks to EU domination and JP. The EU sales gap isn't going to be stopped by a small price cut and a game but it will help the XBO brand a bit dropping the ratio from 5:1 down to 3:1 for this week. However, JP sales (down a tad bit, but holding strong around 50k - 60k) negates the boost in favor of the PS4 based on WW numbers.

Bigpappy1570d ago

'Titan Falls' anticipation and PVZ son! Not that hard to figure out. X1 has some seriously fun games to play.

ShinMaster1570d ago

PS4 hardware sales still on top.

SilentNegotiator1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

Where are you trolls when the VGC numbers favor PS4? Xbone outselling the Ps4 by a mere 5K in its home territory in a week? Is that really that hard to believe?

Click the "global" link and stop crying.

jebabcock1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

Wierd. These numbers don't match what I'm seeing on vgchartz.... The page must not be dynamic and they have been adjusting numbers since this post.

It's VGC. These aren't real numbers, just a guess.

SpinalRemains1381570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

A "guess" implies that the source is aiming for an accurate figure.

VG Chartz does not guess. The kid has an alarmingly clear agenda. That agenda being cooking numbers in favor of Xbox, while simultaneously slighting the SONY numbers.

He does not in any way guess. He clearly and deliberately manipulates the numbers to suit his deluded fantasies about Xbox one day not being a last place console. (which it is.....every generation)

nicksetzer11570d ago

The second the numbers don't praise sony, they are made up and vgchartz is a trash site ran by an xbox fanboy. But it's right on qhen the numbers favor sony right? This site is ALWAYS wrong and usually by a lot, should never be a source of info at all.

candoa1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

so every single sales report they favor the ps4, and this is the only sales report that the x1 won and is that prove that vgchart are xbox fanboys. thats why ps fanboys are know for being the most hypocrites of all fanboys.

jebabcock1569d ago

Agreed... often enough the numbers have favored Sony incorrectly. I think there are just a accuracy issues.

-Superman-1570d ago

When X1 is outselling PS4 then N4G fanboys vote "hard to say" and people in here say: fake news, microsoft paid.
When PS4 is outselling then N4G fanboys vote "thats real" and say that this is fact and truth.

Xsilver1570d ago

fact PS4 is outselling the X1 :/

Prophet-Gamer1570d ago

That's probably because VGchartz has a clear and proven history of overtracking Xbox and Undertracking PS.

Personally, I could see the X1 doing better these next two weeks as well, simply because PS4 supply is terrible and Titanfall is launching. Once Sony has stable supply though, it'll easily remain ahead for the rest of the year (until an X1 price cut)

T21570d ago

wrong, vgchartz is always b.s. and I always downvote them and wtf the story quality... this site should be permabanned everywhere.

but when npd comes out and they update their numbers to show sony currenlty selling more, then yes they are right after they plagarize NPD

Ju1569d ago

True, Superman. But considering the January numbers - where the XO was ahead or on par with the PS4 according to VG and we all know how that turned out - I'd take those numbers with a grain of salt (or better get the whole a sack).

avengers19781569d ago

I think it's funny how, when PS4 post better numbers XB fans are like this vg charts is just made up, and then when XB1 post better numbers PS fans are like this is vg charts run by a known xbot.

I don't see any reason why XB1 would not go up in sales just a couple of weeks before a very hyped game TitanFall comes out, and of course PS4 numbers are down a little, try to find one.

I think the big thing here is so far not a lot of XB1's are sold in March ( a month were most Xbox fans say it will sell a million units) and it only outsold the PS4 by 4,100 with playstations supply issues

gameon19851570d ago

the xbox one actually out sold the PS4, I guess titan fall will help with sales. We all know if it boost a big increase in sales Microsoft will by the ip. Sony fan boys can try and deny that all they want, but bottom line if Microsoft wants Something bad enough, they have the cash to make things happen.

GribbleGrunger1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

lol. I agree but 4,000 isn't going to make MS rush out and buy up the whole franchise, especially when they've been outsold 3/1 in Europe this week, and by nearly 100,000 WW. It will have to make a significant difference in WW sales, not just America.

gameon19851570d ago

Yea, but the game isn't even out yet and sales are already going up so that is a promising sign.

GribbleGrunger1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

It's definitely promising, I agree. It's trends you need to keep an eye on to make any meaningful evaluation of long term success. Once Titanfall releases and creates a sales spike (which it will) you then have to wait 4 - 6 weeks as the number steadies to assess what the new average weekly sales will be. If the sales ratio remains largely unchanged, then it won't be feasible for MS to pay for exclusivity because potential loss of revenue increases the bigger the install base gets of the console you aren't releasing on. It's not just revenue from the game, but revenue from future DLC you are losing. EA will be demanding a LARGE amount of money for that exclusivity, and whilst MS have deep pockets, they also have perplexed shareholders and a guy in charge who isn't too worried about catering to those shareholders.

Damn, I hit disagree by mistake so I'll give you a bubble instead: 'I agree, it is promising' Bubble.

reed_richard1570d ago

Yes according to vgchartz the x1 out sold the PS4 by 4000 . But take a look at worldwide sale PS4 IS still out selling x1 3 to . So congratulations on 4000 sold more in usa bit sorry for being sold by 100000 worldwide. ;-)

candoa1570d ago

xbox 360 sold more software than the ps3 with only the USA. That kind of show you that worldwide don't mean $hit. why do you think all the consoles and games come to America first? you think is a coincidence ? no, is because we buy the most. You make it here in America you don't need anybody else.

no click the disagree button on you american base operating system, facts hurts but they're still facts

Shiken1569d ago

@canodoa

The PS3 outsold the 360 WW for years and pulled ahead before the gen ended. WW is the big picture, this is just plain fact. Also the PS4 has been selling out in the US so if the X1 can only do 4000 units more for a few weeks due to their "big" exclusive, MS is in trouble for the long haul. After Titanfall the X1 has nothing to keep it going in 2014.

PS4 has Infamous, MLB The Show, Driveclub, and the Order coming to not only push consoles at the end of march, but keep the momentum going. At E3 we will get a release window on Uncharted and probably find out what SSM and other big 1st partys are up to behind the scenes.

This is a good start for MS, but they have a LONG way to go with little on the horizon to make that push right now. Unless TF does incredible, which it won't on X1 due to 360 and PC release, The PS4 will start outselling it in the US again when hype goes down and widen the gap back up.

LeCreuset1570d ago

"Sony fan boys can try and deny that all they want, but bottom line if Microsoft wants Something bad enough, they have the cash to make things happen."

So I guess they haven't wanted to come ahead of Sony in any gen, because they have yet to do it.

T21570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

haha nice! so I guess they just didn't want their cellphones or zune to be successful huh? just a little stab in the dark for fun?
They will just force the other 2/3 of gamers in Europe to suddenly want an xbox?

xbox one with 10 games - $199 plus exclusive GTA 6, Infamous, Titanfall, COD and BF only on xboxone!!!
..... oh wait we are now 5 billion in debt? How'd that happen?

Gamer19821570d ago

Thing is PS4 still sold out yet week on week drops in sales.. Now its launched in Japan there's less to go around I guess. MS has a massive advantage in the fact its releases in less countries. See the Xbox fans go on that Sony has the advantage because its for sale in more countries but its the other way around. Xbox more readily available in countries like the USA because they don't have to ship consoles like Japan. You gotta remember these things aren't manufactured in like 10 different countries. So in US sales Xbox will always have the advantage until initial sales calm down. Worldwide sales are where its at. As both can ship just as many consoles no matter how many countries its available in. Sony's consoles are just more thinly spread.

MysticStrummer1570d ago

XB1 gained 18%, probably because of Titanfall.

PS4 lost 23%.

XB1 only outsold PS4 by 4,068 units. This small "victory" is quite hollow.

Obscure_Observer1570d ago

Not if you consider that you´re talking about the more expensive and less powerful machine. Just saying.

MysticStrummer1570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

You think it's simply a coincidence that this is happening just as the single most anticipated XB1 game is set to release?

I still say "winning" by 4000 units when you gained 18% and your competitor dropped 23% is a hollow victory when, as I said, this is lining up with the release of your most anticipated title by far.

badaxx1570d ago

Jan. numbers on Vgchartz had Xbox one winning by a large amount. Then NPD numbers came out and the PS4 was winning by a large amount. so it was just in jan. they had it way off.

SpinalRemains1381570d ago (Edited 1570d ago )

Other way around?

No. That's an absurd statement. VGchartz' sole mission is to lie in favor of Xbox. Always has, always will. That's the only reason it exists.

BieberFan1570d ago

The Xbox fan who runs vchartz had the PS2 installed base off by some 30 MILLION consoles a few years ago. Sony is really on the ball this gen with their constant real sales number updates every few weeks. They really aren't giving the Xbox fan at vgchartz any room to lie about PS4 sales this gen. The Xbox fan is pretty much stuck only with inflating Xbox One sales numbers since Microsoft has been obviously completely silent about actual sales numbers since 2014 started.

FITgamer1570d ago

Wait for NPD, PS4 will be under-tracked, Xbox One over-tracked. It's been like that every month since they released.

So 11 days out from Titanfall and PS4 is still outselling Xbox an estimated 2.4:1 globally? Are they even going to make it to 1:1 globally on March 1-11?

I seriously doubt these are the numbers MS was hoping for leading up to Titanfall.
