Look's like infamous turned out to be a very good system seller.
PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt  +   243d ago
Dont forget this is only 2 days of sale of infamous since it came out on a friday, and they close of the week on saturday
NewMonday  +   243d ago
still nothing but made up numbers

the most obvious lie is that supposed day1 sales are less than the established pre-orders which should be over 400k

Expected, each console took the week their game launched. It will be interesting to see what happens the week that follows now that MS have been selling the XBOne at a lower price.

Playstation nations all over the world. Ps4 is dominating in all charts when it comes to gaming. Quality product and I'm glad people realize it.

Looks like PS4 is shoving its way back into the top slot, after a mere week.

A week is a "slump" now? Ps4 barely got outsold for ONE week, due to a game that MS pumped millions and millions and millions into, and you call that a "slump"?

Wow. Sony is really kicking ms tail.
Nitrowolf2  +   243d ago
And that's just 1 or maybe 2 days of sales being recorded

BTW does anyone know how this percentage stuff works? It says 88% Increase from last weeks sales, yet it's less? (last week for PS4 was -1% at 130K, now it's 88,000 with 88% increase????)
The UK One makes sense, it went from 10K to 20K and reports 100% increase, yet here???

EDITed: @ Below

Ah, the site kept reseting it to Global, no wonder

+88% refers to the increase in US alone.
The 130k figure was world wide sales last week.
T2  +   243d ago
No hypocrisy allowed. It's vgshartz and we have perfectly good npd numbers to talk about in 3 weeks...
No harm in speculation though just not from this site

Don't know how accurate these numbers are but I'm hoping that inFamous: Second Son does amazing numbers, because it deserves to. It is just a really solid game.
Evilsnuggle  +   243d ago
I said that xbone will out sell PS4 worldwide for 2 weeks. But not the month of March PS4 . I said PS4 still will out sell x1 march worldwide with Titanfall. But know what if xbone just barely out sold PS4 with Titanfall xbone biggest most hyped and advertised Game. What will Microsoft do now they are giving away free games and free xbox live gold and xbone is heavily discounted already. The xbone is in serious trouble. Next big game on xbOne is halo 5 that almost two years away from now. Xbone is doomed the xbone will not sale 8 million units by end of this year. Microsoft said it would sale 10 million by end of year it will not be close to that. Sony said it will sell 12 million it will be more than 12 million by end of year. PS4 still has it's biggest game of the year The Order 1886 will be a huge system seller for PS4.
Eonjay  +   243d ago
Xbox One should win USA March NPD but world wide, the PS4 definitely has this in the bag. Its ahead by several hundred thousand units world wide in March.
pakua  +   243d ago
Sorry but you lost credibility when you said The Order 1886 will be a huge system seller.
mediate-this  +   243d ago
Ahhh yeah it will, micro sold 4mill xb1 in four months, selling another 6 is not far off, lets say they only sell 8 mill for fiscal, how is that bad? But i see them selling more.
MysticStrummer  +   242d ago

"Sorry but you lost credibility when you said The Order 1886 will be a huge system seller."

Way to avoid everything else the comment said so you could focus on the last sentence. The game isn't out anytime soon, so it's just as credible to say it will be a system seller as to say it won't be.

Muzikguy  +   243d ago
@Silent completely agree. MS had Titanfall which was been the big talk for a year now but still can't hold up to Sony. I don't recall Sony ever saying "but have you seen Infamous" or anything like that. I hope Infamous does well and I'm yet to buy my copy
Bobets  +   243d ago
Holy shit! you should see the World wide numbers ps4 at 220k WOW!
mafiahajeri  +   243d ago
Infamous doing really well! Great!
chrisarsenalsavart  +   243d ago
Especially with a tenth of the budget Microsoft spent on TF marketing and without giving it for free.
I still believe it was a futile move from MICROSOFT to get TF exclusivity since everybody knows the sequel will be multiplatform and destiny is just around the corner.
Niv  +   243d ago
Massive drop for Titanfall
Manic2014  +   243d ago
It's actually sold pretty well considering its second week.
Concertoine  +   243d ago
Its doing alright.
Im more surprised the xbone stood at 75k, to be honest. Thats not bad.
#4.1.1 (Edited 243d ago ) | Agree(13) | Disagree(3) | Report
SilentNegotiator  +   243d ago
It's barely going to hit a million on Xbone on its second week. A game that they pumped millions into advertising for and probably at least a dozen million for the exclusivity.

It should be selling better than that.
bleedsoe9mm  +   243d ago
strong numbers for xb1 hardware
Geobros  +   243d ago
So many sales for Ground Zero, a game we are paying for playing maximum 2 hours....
Ginesis  +   243d ago
I know I'll get a ton of disagrees but I'm uneasy that this game sold as much as it did and what that tells other developers.
DC777  +   243d ago
You may get a ton of disagrees but you are correct in what you say.
jessupj  +   243d ago
And you should be feeling very uneasy. Publishers are going to be keeping a very close eye on the situation and will follow suite if they think their game is high profile enough to get away with it.

So I would like to give a big thanks each and every person that bought GZ. You have possibly contributed to making this great hobby significantly worse. Well done.

Good to see infamous and ps4 on top. Infamous is one of those games you're going to want to play whether it got bad reviews or not. So too bad to all those bias reviewers who rated the game low.

807% week-on-week software sale increase for PS4! It was always gonna be a good week, but WOW!! O.o

TITANFALL had very little effect except 1 weeks as expected, x1 has nothing now until fall lol. Gonna be a tough year for MS.All sony needed to do was ship more consoles
Bernlock  +   243d ago
very little effect? It still sold 74 thousand consoles this week. How is that little effect. It sold (according to this data) over 100 the week before. You act like that is a huge drop
Bundi  +   243d ago
so you are comparing the PlayStation 4's first week with infamous vs Xbox one second week with Titanfall?

Why not compare Xbox 1 sales from the previous week with PlayStation 4 sales for this week?
Xbox one sold 105,000 units in the US when Titanfall dropped.
The game itself sold 580 000 units the first week.

PlayStation 4 sold 88000 with infamous
King2008  +   243d ago
But if this is to be believed...which I don't this would be sales with 1 maybe 2 days of infamous on the market...
Xsilver  +   243d ago
Please how long has INFamous has been on the Market Mr week man.
kenshiro100  +   243d ago
Hold on, I forgot Sony was doomed? /s

Really good numbers for the PS4 and Infamous.
Ginesis  +   243d ago
The PS4 has nothing to do with their overall business. The Playstation brand alone cant save their kind of financial situation. It helps but its not a savior.
Belasco  +   243d ago
How do they figure the X1 leads in software? Confusing.
TristanPR77  +   243d ago
Those numbers are not worldwide, they are just US. I'm telling because some people have the confusion.
Belasco  +   243d ago
The disagrees are more confusing, it was an honest question. I am aware this is the U.S. only. If you look at life to date software it has the X1 leading, thats all I was pointing out and you aholes hit disagree because you thought it was a stealth troll.
TheFallenAngel  +   243d ago
We'll looks like infamous sold very well. It wasn't give away either
OiNioB  +   243d ago
Where's all the hate for VG Chartz today seriously...
Bernlock  +   243d ago
because this week favored Sony duh. This site only hates VG Chartz when Xbox is ahead.
Hicken  +   243d ago
Can you link me to one person who "hated" on VGChartz last week, but isn't doing so this week?

There really should be a bubble down option for saying the same stupid thing that's been debunked already.
OiNioB  +   243d ago
I never said it was a single person,

though the community as a whole clearly spends more time downplaying any post with a chart showing positive stats for one platform while simultaneously praising/believing the other charts that do the opposite.

it's been proven, not debunked.
Hicken  +   242d ago
The community as whole does no such thing.

One particular sector of the community here bashes the site only when their product is behind. I'll give you a hint: they're behind right now.

Everybody else understands that the site is simply providing estimates, and accordingly takes these numbers with a grain of salt. Most of us also know that the site has a rather long history of undertracking Playstation sales, while tending to overtrack Xbox sales. Therefore, we take such inaccuracies into consideration when regarding reports from VGChartz.

And it's the exact same thing every week. Yet, for some unfathomable reason, we have comments like yours every week that literally ignore all comments that outright state it. Shouldn't you have caught on by now?
saimcheeda  +   243d ago
Infamous was PS4's killer app!
Inferno30  +   243d ago
Damn check out the MGS sales on PS4 compared to XBONE, Its over 100,000 more. No wonder Kojima loves Playstation lol.
DJustinUNCHAIND   243d ago | Trolling | show | Replies(6)
Ginesis  +   243d ago
Kojima loves Playstation because hes Japanese and Sony is a Japanese company, he's just really really loyal to them, he always has been, even when the PS3 was doing bad he still made MGS4 (an exclusive) for Sony. He will always lean toward Playstation, always has always will.
jimbobbeers  +   243d ago
Amusing how you Sony boys wrote VGchartz off the other day when it had figures that you don't like, and not its 100% accurate. Bloody hypocrites.
wenaldy  +   243d ago
It goes both ways, go cry somewhere else..
kenshiro100  +   243d ago
Goes both ways. I bet you guys will be cheering if this was in the XB1's favor.

Even if these numbers are inaccurate, Sony still did well.
jessupj  +   243d ago
There's always going to be a troll or 2, but most of us have ALWAYS said that chartz tends to under tracks PS consoles and over tracks MS consoles.

We have always said that in every single article, regardless of sales.

It's just that when the xbone does outsell the PS4 that fact it mentioned more in the comment section.

Also, it was interesting that in the USA vgcharts article last week that the usual suspects were suddenly cheering vgcharts when all the months prior they had been condemning them.
Whiskeyjacked87  +   243d ago
Soon as I get a few Extra bucks I'm grabbing Infamous! Man I need to get that experience!!!
mediate-this  +   243d ago
Thats about first day sales for infamous, pretty sure it got beat by titanfall firstday sales. Tf still in fourth
pakua  +   243d ago
To be fair the Hardware sales for the Playstation were quite poor. inFamous did well though
kenshiro100  +   243d ago
Poor in what way?
pakua  +   243d ago
Poor in terms of the impact of inFamous. I know it ousted the Xbox One but it marginal. Still good numbers though.
corvusmd  +   243d ago
Nice, things are starting to even out already, and the competition is getting stronger. I wasn't expecting this to close until next Christmas when people get their second consoles, and/or when Halo games start to drop. It's already getting competitive from week to week. XB1 sold only slightly less that PS4 in a week that saw infamous and MGS drop (true MGS is multiplat, but it's being strongly associated with PS4). What's also impressive is that in Software, XB1 is still selling more in the US despite fewer consoles sold...and Titanfall is still a third of the sales of infamous...I know on face value that looks bad, but considering the hype for both of these games, the vast majority of both games were expected to sell in the first 24-48 hours...and for Titanfall to still sell a third of what infamous did in it's launch week, after it had already been out for a week means that the game is doing really well. Nice to see things being competitive.

Of course like anyone will tell you, these are all rumor numbers at this point, but being that this is all we have to go on for now...

Vgcharts March global sales are 476,102 PS4 to 342,060 Xbox so far. One week to go. March total will prob. be 700k to 450k.

All the price drops and bundles and marketing didn't seem to help much.
