Nice job Xbox team

This is a marathon not a sprint- Microsoft

Hatsune-Miku922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

A cheaper xbox one with free titan fall barely made an impact which indicates that xbox one is in big trouble. I saw xbox one s at the same price as a ps4 with a free game titanfall and it didn't make any impact. Infamous second son had more reservation than the sales of titanfall. Titanfall is coming to ps4 later this year and the abysmal sales indicates that EA ARE kicking themselves for their initial exclusive deal with Microsoft because in the end they could have made more money mmaking it exclusive on ps4 or having it multiplatform on all console

Neonridr922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

barely made an impact? It sold over 500k copies of Titanfall in one region. Those are great numbers.

The attachment rate of that game is over 20%.

Eonjay922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

I'm not sure what Microsoft's expectations were, but those numbers aren't bad at all. There is a really good chance that they may be able to be the top sold system this month in the US. If they can win next week, I think they will have March in the bag. And they may be able to come within 200k of PS4 in the US.

@Neonridr

I think he is referring to Xbox One not Titanfall. It should have no trouble getting to 1 million by the end of the month. Also, it outsold Call of Duty:Ghosts first week sales.

mhunterjr922d ago

Maybe I'm having trouble with math, but on what planet is a 118% in sales considered "barely making an impact"

MelvinTheGreat922d ago

Please go to be a fanboy somewhere else.

SaturdayNightBeaver922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

You forgot the most important thing.

"Ps4 is future and future is Ps4"

Hatsune-Miku 2013/2014

PONTIAC08G8GT922d ago

Software sales, +457% and system sales, +118%. Yea, that's barely an impact. Wii U's numbers are much better.

u got owned922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

Congrats to MS on a successful Titanfall launch. It helped XBO outsell PS4 competition 2:1 that week. For the month Im not sure considering Infamous just launch yesterday, but then again the game having mixed reviews could have affect it sales.

troylazlow922d ago

Great news for Xbox One!

Outstanding week:
-Outsold PS4 almost 2:1.
-Just under 700k units in games sold.
-Reduced the PS4 lead to 250k systems and surpassed the Wii U (in US)

starscream420922d ago

You sir obviously don't know what your talking about.......Titan fall IS exclusive. Titanfall is selling very well. Titan fall 2 coming to ps4........most likely but not Titanfall 1

MasterCornholio922d ago

@Starscream

Titanfall isnt exclusive. Just like Diablo 3 isnt exclusive to the PS4 just because it wasnt announced for the Xbox One.

:I

Ashby_JC922d ago

Really??????

For a console with less then 4 million in the wild. Selling almost 600K week one in the US alone is HUGE!!

In comparison....look at sales for South Park stick of truth....between the 360 and PS3 which boast over 100+ Million consoles sold less then 100K units week one.

GTFOH with this nonsense your spewing.

uptownsoul922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

Yeah TItanfall did have an impact. But it was more of a Wii U impact in that it sold well with people who already own the console. But for as big as the game is, i would have thought i'd see even bigger Xbox One hardware sales (The PS4's numbers were rather close globally, for not having any games release). I've seen some Youtube Xbox fans saying the Xbox One would sell 1 Million units in March thanks to Titanfall. That clearly won't happen.

Evilsnuggle922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

I think what Hatsune-Miku is saying that it doesn't impact the lifetime sales of PS4 and xbone . The PS4 has more that two and a half million More PS4 sold than xBone and growing.

This does not surprise me Look at my comments I said that Titanfall will probably out sell PS4 worldwide for 2 weeks . That is until the 360 version of Titanfall will be released then xbone sells will tumble tumble and fall again. But Microsoft just got a Stay of execution from EA with the delay of 360 version of Titanfall. I don't think xbone will out sell PS4 worldwide for the month of March but maybe on titinfall is delayed on 360. Still Hatsune-Miku is right xbone out sold PS4 by 20000 units worldwide. Titanfall is xbone biggest title until halo 5 in two years and xbone only out sold PS4 by 20000. The xbone is in serious trouble If all the hype of Titanfall sales only 20000 more xbone than PS4 xbone is doomed. What will xbone do after Titanfall no system seller on the horizon For xbone until halo 5 so far. The PS4 still has it's biggest game of the year The Order 1886 coming out winter 2014 it's going to be a huge system seller for PS4. Xbone fanBoys yes selling 700000 copy of Titanfall is good for EA. Most people who have a xbone bought it for Titanfall or because they were already going to buy titanfail. Microsoft needs to sale new xbone and Titanfall don't look like it's selling many new system sells. The xbone only out sold PS4 by 20000 units.

cozomel922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

Ok, as usual people are being dumb here and as usual you got the xbox fanboys puffing their chests and the ps fanboys trying to act neutral, but downplaying it at the same time. But first of all, its VGC, so why are we taking this as accurate, they'll just go back in afterwards and correct their guess after the fact. And second of all, VGC will just go in next week and put Infamous numbers right around the same amount as this and mysteriously the PS4 numbers will be up. It bullsh*t and you people need to stop falling for this crap every single time. Y'all never learn. Mark my words, next week will prove me right. And to all the fanboys puffing their chests. In the grand scheme of things, this doesnt matter, but go ahead get your hopes up, so you can be let down yet again by MS and the XO. But fanboys never learn and will continue this nonsense. Its insanity. Also, where are they getting their info-numbers from?

Kingoftherodeo922d ago

Give me that link or place where you saw xbox one for 400 with titanfall included so i can share it with the world. Other wise you are talking out of your ass. You dont think people would jump at xbox1 with titanfall included for same price as a ps4?

soljah922d ago

the fact that ms had to lower the price of the xbone plus give away titanfall for free to get people to buy the system is troubling. ms has had to discount the system just months after release means the more they sell the bigger the loss.
plus they spent hundreds of millions to get the game on xbox.
btw has anyone been tracking the sales of the 360 which has been over taken by the ps3 in the usa in weekly sales for the last several months.
i declear the 360 and wii are now dead the ps3 and ps4 has become the king of last gen and current gen hardware

NewMonday922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

According to these rumors XB1 moved 55k units more than PS4

But Europe and Japan sales will negate that

And next week will see the effects of the chart topping inFAMOUS PS4 bundle

No_Limit922d ago

Congrat MS, Respawn for having a successful launch. I knew this was the case when I went to the Midnight launch to pick up Titanfall and Darks Souls 2. There were at least a dozen people trading in their old systems for the Titanfall Bundle.

Boody-Bandit922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

This is a nice little boost for MS but I don't think they are overly thrilled one bit with these numbers. This is far and away their biggest region and TF was marketed through the roof. I honestly thought MS was going to hit around 200k+ with this bundle in the US.

Right now WalMart, the biggest retailer in the world, just dropped the price of the XBOX ONE TitanFall bundle by $50. You can order it online or walk into any WalMart store in the US and walk out with an X1 TF bundle for $450 +tx. That's equivalent to getting and X1 for under $399.

What I'm wondering is will all other US retailers follow suit. Also is a price drop incoming from MS or is this just WalMart trying to move stock? Either or something is up. If anyone knows thing one about WalMart they are one of the greedier corporations in the world today.

Death922d ago

"the fact that ms had to lower the price of the xbone plus give away titanfall for free to get people to buy the system is troubling."

I looked into getting an Infamous PS4 bundle since the game looks to be amazing. When I seen Sony released it for $570 I quickly changed my mind. I don't need an extra controller or another PS+ subscription and the bundle doesn't save the customer any money at all. Next time I see a PS4 I might pick it up along with the game for $460.

Microsoft lowered the price and included a game for those looking to jump into the Xbox One. You can call it desperate or you can call it strategy. Either way it's good for the customer unlike the bundle Sony is offering.

beereal360922d ago

You sir are what we call a hater. LMAO.

scott182922d ago

Good job Microsoft, really picked it up sales wise.

Boody-Bandit922d ago

@Death

The Infamous bundle has nothing to do with Sony. Its a Gamestop bundle. Walmart, Sams Club and newegg are all selling PS4s but only bundled. None of that is Sonys doing. Just companies trying to cash in on PS4 popularity / demand.

Boody-Bandit922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

FYI
Best Buy is now selling the XBOX ONE TF bundle for $449.99 as well as WalMart. How long before every retailer drops the price? Is this a price drop incoming from MS on the XBOX ONE or them trying to move the TF bundles?

I checked every other retailer in the US and so far it's only WalMart and Best Buy. I have several windows opened with all the other retailers seeing if or when they too will drop the price.

MorePowerOfGreen922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

If the strain on XBL in the last couple of weeks are any indication of a massive influx of XB1 owners the numbers for both the XB1 console and Titanfall should be much higher than these numbers.

Good job MSFT. Lots of sour grapes denial in here. Why do PS4 fans care so much about Xbox?

malokevi922d ago

Those are impressive numbers from MS. Obviously Titanfall had the impact they were hoping for. Well deserved. Now keep em coming!!!

AndrewLB922d ago

KingoftheRodeoClowns- Walmart has the Xbone for $449 bundled with Titanfall, and it's not very difficult to obtain a 10% off coupon for Walmart if you search around or sign up for their email crap. So with that coupon, the price is $404.

ABizzel1922d ago

Like I said XBO may outsell PS4 in NA this month, but WW I still think PS4 takes it, this weeks sales determines the results, and if MS loses, it's good for us because we can expect a price cut this year.

Pain921d ago

hmm "Not a sprint but a marathon" I recall that's what Sony said back when ps3 launched a year after Xbox did and was behind in sales..

fr0sty921d ago (Edited 921d ago )

I can't believe people are even acting surprised by this. Of course there was a boost in sales, and of course it outsold the other consoles. This is one of the most heavily hyped titles in recent history, it's coming out for a console that is new and doesn't have a lot of games, it is being promoted as the console's flagship title, and it coincided with a price cut and bundle in many areas.

The real test will be seeing how long those numbers hold up. Both MS and EA are biting their nails hoping the pace keeps up, they've both taken a big bet on Titanfall. PS4 isn't going to be supply constrained forever, and one of its heavy hitters (with over a million pre-orders) just dropped.

pheature921d ago

i own a ps4 it is awesome, but i am far from biased.
ppl forget that ps4 is in far more countries than xbox1 i think x1 has 13 countries. so i think if they had the same amount of countries at this stage of titan fall there obivously would be a massive hamerblow to the ps4 profit,
but i truely belive that since titan fall did so well for x1 and it did considerin the countries it was in, so movin to the ps4 on titan fall 2 when x1 should be in as almost the same amount as countrys as the ps4, the sales for that game and both consoles would be greatly increased for both, i belive this is the plan between both companys.
yes they are "enimeys" but believe me they work together on things laughin the whole way to the bank. which i think is the average consumers fault, who would purchase a console on biased opinions which rite now favours the ps4.
but when halo comes out for x1 i will purchase it and i am sure alot of other ps4 owners will as xbox 360 ppl (not the average consumer the gammers) who choose the better console at the time, will then go back to the x1.
it is crafty work from both companys.

fr0sty921d ago

If Microsoft knew their sales would rocket up like that if they were released in more countries, they would have done that by now. There's a reason why they're only available in 13 countries, and it isn't "localization" like they claim. No other console in history (even the other ones you can operate with your voice) have been delayed like that over localization.

marloc_x921d ago

XB1..the first sound of the future..

Gamer1982921d ago

Shame once the 360 version comes out they can kiss goodbye to them extra sales.. Still wasn't enough for them to get over the line at the end of the day. Sony still ahead and now have infamous sales to come.. Worldwide charts are gonna be interesting for the week.. Did Xbox outsell PS4?

IcarusOne921d ago

@Hatsune: "which indicates that xbox one is in big trouble"

What does big trouble look like in your world? Because I don't think you understand that phrase. Both Sony and MS are making money off these systems. Big money. Only fanboys worry and bite their nails over which sells more.

pakua922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

If Titanfall was exclusive then this would be huge news. The longevity has to be questioned but it's a smart move delaying the 360 version (if MS had anything to do with it)

Having said that, I'm surprised at the huge gap between PC and Xbox One Titanfall sales. Maybe this is the system seller after all.

GamingSinceThe80s922d ago

The fact the does not take digital sales in to account mite have something to do with the small sales numbers.

BakPAin922d ago

Walmart and Best Buy selling Titanfall bundle for $449 thats not bad!
Walmart aslo has the Forza bundle for $449!! These numbers going up!!

MasterCornholio922d ago

Didnt Sony say the same thing?

So who is right?

HighResHero922d ago

I think when the official numbers are published it will be especially funny this month.

MasterCornholio922d ago

@Highreshero

I believe the PS4 will still outsell the XB1 this month.

P.S I'm talking about global numbers however it could be different in the UK and the US.

sic_chops921d ago

Yes, Sony did say "it's a marathon, not a sprint." MS just copies what they say just like when Phil Spencer (greasy used car salesman) said "the xbox one is a console made for gamers, by gamers." Sony said it first and it sounded good so M$ used it.

AsimLeonheart922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

That was said by Sony when MS was boasting its one year early Xbox360 launch and sales lead. PS3 had Europe and Japan to fall back to which helped it gain the lead in worldwide sales even if it was never able to catch up in the US. What has the Xbone got to fall back on? Europe and Japan are lost causes for them so they will always be behind Sony even if they equal sales in the US.

MasterCornholio922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

Microsoft said the same thing.

Guess who said it?

http://media.ign.com/games/...

"Microsoft exec Phil Harrison has defended the Xbox One's ongoing sales battle with PlayStation 4 as "a marathon, not a sprint" in response to Sony's higher global sales total."

http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

P.S Kutaragi has a very strange look on his face in the picture.

Rimeskeem922d ago

Remember that infamous has not been put in the data so next weeks these numbers are going to be completely different.

LiberatedAnimal922d ago (Edited 922d ago )

The funniest part is how well the WiiU is starting to hang with the comp. GAMES GAMES GAMES! That's what sells systems. I feel like after Kart, Smash, Bayonetta2 and X, WiiU will really have found it's footing and I think we will all be surprised by the outcome. Can't wait to get a PS4 though. I have $300 saved! Almost there.

CaEsAr-922d ago

XboxFun922d ago

Look at the tears everyone.

of course as usual, now vgchartz can't be trusted and its ran by xbox fanboy, it purposly undertracks sony products. Just like the media is biased against sony, game journalists hate sony exclusives, MS pays game reviews to give low scores to sony games.

am I missing any other excuse you guys like to use whenever something doesn't go your way?

oh, oh....US and UK is not the world.

Im sure we'll be bringing that gem back right.

the gap is quickly closing and it wont take 7 years to do it.

kenshiro100922d ago

the gap is quickly closing? In what reality?

MysticStrummer921d ago

Except the gap isn't closing.

Nes_Daze921d ago (Edited 921d ago )

There are no tears, PS fanboys have no reason to be in tears, PS4 is selling great.. VGcharts is always questionable but still interesting to see. There are indeed some game journalists that are biased against Sony, (Sessler, Edge, Gamereactor etc.)

There is no gap closing, lol, you can't close a gap when you are constantly being outsold worldwide.

There are no excuses because nothing is going in any way, both consoles are steadily selling very well, both companies are keeping each other in check, gamers are winning!

jessupj921d ago (Edited 921d ago )

Well well. Look who it is doing what he does best.

You know as juvenile as your responses to me were sometimes at least you had a little intelligence to try to hide your trolling.

I don't know if your ears have been full of sand lately and it's hard to get out because you have to move a heavy rock every time you want to leave, but according to vgcharts..

(which implies it must be taken with a grain of salt as we have constantly said, regardless of sales. Your desperate attempt to scream hypocrite is flat out incorrect, at least for most people here)

... world wide since release the PS4 has been GREATLY outselling the xbone every single week. There is no gap closing, it's only getting wider. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Ironically the only tears I see here are yours.

(can people bubble up XboxFun please. His responses are very entertaining)

speedforce131921d ago

But wait a minute. VGC overtracks Xbox right? This article shows them overtracking Xbox so that's okay b/c it's Xbox winning right?

DigitalRaptor920d ago

LOL. What?

PS3 took 7 years to outsell the 360 in total number of units, because 360 release a year earlier, and PS3 sold more for the majority of the years it was on sale.

Both PS4 and Xbone released within a week of each other, PS4 is dominating in sales, in performance, in having the better versions of multiplatform games, in having a better console to market, and this will be the same situation for every year it's on the market.

Oh... and the gap isn't closing.

Being so bitter all the time isn't healthy, and since things aren't going to get better for you and your arguments, I'd suggest not living with such harmful delusions. Go outside and play, I think you'll be better at that.

How does a it outselling it by a little one week mean it's a sprint? I'm pretty sure most people thought the xbox one would outsell it that week.

Flutterby921d ago (Edited 921d ago )

Oh I see VG isn't so unreliable again? Odd that a couple weeks back the xbone fanboys where telling every one to take the numbers with a grain of salt but now they believe them instantly and congrats ms for sales lol

Back-to-Back921d ago

Sprint or marathon

either way MS isnt beating Sony.

avengers1978921d ago

I really don't believe it, GameStop, and amazon had PS4 ahead of XB1 all month, including last week, can't see the XB1 outselling PS4 by that much, but I guess all those infamous bundles won't be counted till this weeks sales, let's see what happens then. NPD numbers 4 march should be very telling

bez87921d ago

Hahahahahahaha brilliant I love the whole use of this term I mean Sony are known for there steady consistency over the gen, and Microsoft are the one's who put out big games in first few months massive gap then more then a gap, and then leave there consoles to it once they jump ship, and now Mircosoft are using the term to try and look good, no offence but Microsoft do the same old thing every time. it's predictable

According to VGCharts PS4/X1 globally (not US only):

March Week 1: 123,702 to 74,441
March Week 2: 132,925 to 155,106 (titanfall week)
March Week 3: (infamous week upcoming)
March Week 4:
Total March: 256,627 to 229,547.

PS4 still ahead globally in March despite supply shortages, Titanfall, price drops, free game bundles, and VGcharts usual undertracking. Let's see how infamous week goes.

pakua922d ago

Why are VGChartz undertracking PS4 sales? Can you explain or is this just a rumor?

plasticidolatry922d ago

PS4 has been consistently 100-200k behind what Sony officially announces.
