VGCharts US only March 2014: 238,972 PS4 to 289,340 Xbox

According to VGCharts Xbox outsold PS4 in the US by ~50k, but got outsold globally by ~200k. Taken with a big grain of salt as usual.

Good numbers for MS.

Even after the 118% boost in X1 sales last week from Titanfall, it still outsold PS4, despite inFamous releasing just recently. Titanfall continues to sell after 18 days, and almost outsold inFamouse during its launch week.

Sure ignoring the fact that there are two PS4 games in the top 3. And the fact that PS4 had a high software sale of about 40k. Yes Titanfall is selling well.
Eonjay  +   255d ago
Thats right. It outsold the PS4 by 4k units. At this rate the Xbox One will pass the PS4 in 62 weeks. I definitely don't expect either to win every week.

@sethry Titanfall is selling well compared to PS4 games or not, it doesn't have to be compared at all However, it is rather impressive that a new IP is selling this well compared to a well known IP (even with an extra week of naturally declining sales).
We are just looking at numbers, which are helpful of course, but can also be misleading. 250k more PS4s have been sold in US, yet only 40k more games during a period where the PS4 heavy hitter is more "fresh". The fact that PS4 has 2 titles in the top 3 can be spun the way you did it, but it can also be spun in the way that...there are less games to attract the attention of PS4 owner at the moment, so they centered on these two games more than spreading out on XB1.

Either way US is THE major video games market, and alone could sustain both of these companies, so it's great to see it evening out here and being competitive. That being said, MS should take a long hard look now and consider spreading out more to than just 13 countires...esp to China...game scene isn't big there now...but if it takes off...
Sethry101  +   255d ago | Well said
Corvusmd, what other games are sales spreading for on Xbox?

That list is about equal with the amount of PS4 games and Xbox games. The fact that PS4s first party game is first, and a multiplat has sold more then double on PS4 to Xbox can hardly be "Spun".

I don't disagree that Titanfall is selling very well, but PS4 software sales are high by 40k then Xbox.

And I disagree that comparisons should not be made, the whole point of these figures being provide is to make comparisons.

Edit:
Im curious about the whole 13 countries thing. South Africa was not one of the 13 countries the Xbox was released in, but it has been released here now. Im curious to know if its the only country or if has been released in others....

Without outselling PS4 thanks to titanfall Xbox is not having the best start. That was the game that was supposed to get them back on level terms. There still behind and quite a margin.

I have been seeing ps4 on store shelves for the first time ever, so how do you figure that?
Titanfall did help it catch up, it didn't make it top dog, but it is a giant growth compared to the last few months is it not?
Either way, congrats to both Sony and Microsoft.
As far as the people gloating that MGS sold more on the PS4, considering how short the game is, it's not impressive, it's a crapshoot for one, why should an over-priced demo selling well be something to be proud of? It's more like "Wow, that many people bought that demo/game?" I've played it and beat at a friends house, and it's pretty cool, it feels very MGS, but it is in no way a must have title.
Also factoring in how MGS is not really a staple of the Xbox brand like it is for PS fans, it's a no brainer that it would sell better on PS4.

And, lastly, if the PS4's games like knack, KZ:SF were of any real demand/quality, then shouldn't they be outselling A glorified tech Demo?

Hmm that's strange, I thought Microsoft was an multinational company? And being that you are from the 702, I'd wager if you called Tech support from the USA for your Windows or phone issue you would get a tech in India or the Phillipines.

Or did you know that Microsoft actually imports alot of it's "american" workforce from foreign countries?

Reference: http://www.motherjones.com/...

Did you also know that Microsoft contracts its computer accessories from"dedicated" Chinese work force contracted to build products?

Reference: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/...

Before declaring Microsoft is all patriotic, keep in minds it's multinational -Just like Sony (not being a truly Japanese centric company).

TL:DR If I used your logic, you should support Sony too since it has movie/music/game studios in the United States.

"That would actually fit the trend of sales since release....

The US has been the strongest market for the Xbox by far."

Except the PS4 has been the number 1 seller at the top four US retailers for the past month and a half. The only exception was 3 days at one of those retailers, Best Buy, when the PS4 was temporarily out of stock. At places such as Amazon the gap between the PS4 and the X1 has on average been more than 10 slots.

There is a good, solid, logical reason VG Chartz numbers are banned at Neogaf. It is guesswork and very poor guesswork at that.

I beg to differ and i think you are underestimating the fact that we are talking about 26 countries here...even if sales aint great in those countries its still going to give the console a good boost.

If the xbox one had launched in this 26 additional countries back in november the difference in the current sales numbers between both consoles wouldnt be as much as it is now. Thats a fact. It might not have outsold the ps4 in those countries it might have even sold half the numbers of sonys ps4 in those regions but one thing would be certain the difference would definitly not be as much as it is right now.. and thats why i think MS needs to put up a great show at E3 cos like it or not that event (e3) has a major influence on the deceisions gamers make worldwide.

Completely untrue. VGChartz predicted 145K for Xbox One in February and NPD reported 258K. VGC undertracked the XB1 by over 100,000 units! To be fair, the PS4 was also undertracked by over 80,000 units, but actually do some research next time before spouting complete mistruths.

Now that Phil is at the helm, almost all of that has subsided. Sure Phil isn't perfect and of course he is going to have to make decisions that will please share holders as well, but he's also a gamer and I genuinely believe he's going to turn the xbone around and make it's focus on games.

I still have a pet peeve for MS apologists. I don't think that will ever go away lol.

"which people like you fail to point out. Is that Microsoft took 50% of Sonys market share"

LMAO, Not with only One Game console on the market! or are we only counting Microsoft's one console, but ignore sony's other Two system's to make it seem that Microsoft took Sony's market share %... Look while Microsoft grew the xbox platforms market share, that is not up for debate, because its a fact, Microsoft did not take Sony's 50% STAKE IN MARKET SHARE! WHICH IS NOT UP FOR DEBATE AND ITS A FACT.

Example:

Nintendo is 1st with 5 system's in the retail chain for world wide market share %

Sony is 2nd with 4 systems in the retail chain

Microsoft is 3rd with 2 systems in the retail chain.

Microsoft did not take 50% of Sony market share not with 1 system, if anything Both Nintendo and Sony both have mobile game systems which Microsoft does not have a single Dedicated mobile game system, and most likely never will!

while Microsoft grew its market % share for the xbox it in no way took anywhere near 50% away from Sony that is just a freaking Pipe dream, because at this point microsft has not been in this part of the market long enough to do so, just look at the release system nuber of regions for microsoft 13 vs Nintendo and Sony's over 50+ regions in the world, that takes years, Microsoft has not gathered enough time yet to get the retail pipelines established enough world wide at least in any real large number's like Nintendo and Sony has, and again they only just now have a 2nd system at the same time on the market as the new xboxone, which already the xbox360's sales is already slowed down, is expected, but the fact that the xbox base has yet really shown Microsoft that they are really willing to support two of microsoft systems at the same time, many xbox360 user's have switched over to the xboxone outright, which shows Microsoft that pretty much in the United states and north america that once Microsoft releases a new system the older system's support gets cut and already you can see microsoft doing such.

Nothing wrong with that in my opinion, but its very clear in most cases that Microsoft unlike Nintendo and Sony is pretty much a 1 xbox platform "at a time" , not because microsoft could not support more than one at a time, its just the majority of xbox user's only really want one system.

At least right now its looking that way, could that change maybe, but if the xbox360 is anything to go by, while a very good system, its just that microsoft's clear direction is to put every thing into the new system and pretty much let the past system go by the way side sooner rather than later.

To be fair, Halo 4 came out on an Xbox 360 which had a well-established install base well over 50 million households.

Naga  +   255d ago
@ Death

Given the difference in the variables of time frame, franchise interest, and install base, I don't see how your statistic does anything to refute what I just said.

- One week is not the same as one day.
- Interest in the supposed end of the entire Halo story (Halo 3) is not the same as Halo 5, which will be the continuation of an ongoing saga.
- We also have no idea what the Xbox One install base will be whenever the next Halo arrives.

Consider this in addition:
- With Halo 3, 25% of the Xbox 360 install base purchased the game within the first week.
- With Halo 4, only 6.3% of the Xbox 360 install base purchased the game within the first week.

I think that illustrates my point fairly effectively. You have to look forward in making these speculations - not backward. These numbers seem to indicate a waning interest in the franchise, but we really don't have enough information to say. While I personally love Halo, we can't jump to conclusions about its future success.

Or it illustrates that the same 3 million people pickup the new Halo when it ships. It's not uncommon for games to develop a loyal following such as this. Most likely the loyal Halo/Mario/Uncharted fans are early adopters also. This explains the sales history/console base for each release. To further refute your point, Reach had a bigger opening week than Halo 3.

170 million, 200 million, 220 million. Those are the opening day sales for Halo 3, Halo Reach, and Halo 4 on the Xbox 360. If you want to say attach rates show the series waning interest, that is completely your call. Actual sales and revenue show the trend going forward though.

As for your day/week statement, does it really matter if it is 3 million on day one vs day seven?

avengers1978  +   255d ago
Well if you look at the year to year sales when they were both on the market PS3 outsold 360 practically ever year. And currently is out preforming 360 like 2-1. A year to 18 month head start helped the 360 gain an early advantage. Plus multiple re buys from RROD.
I bought a 360 during the first year for bioshock and gears, later replaced it because of RROD, in fact I don't know anyone in real life that only had one 360.
To be fair though I did have 2 PS3's as well my original, and later bought the newest slim model.

Death  +   255d ago
Both consoles just reached the 80 million mark. True, the Xbox 360 had a one year headstart, but the PS3 followed the PS2 which out sold the Xbox by 125 million+ units. I would like to think having over 100 million more established customers would make up for a 1 year headstart. Outselling the Xbox 360 is a hollow victory at best since both consoles have sold approx the same last gen. That is a lot of loss for Sony and quite the gain for both Microsoft and Nintendo.

To answer your question... The PS2 destroyed the original Xbox in sales. It outsold it by more units than Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One have sold combined.

Why would anyone in their right mind compare the situation PS3 faced against the situation PS2 had? It is beyond retarded.

How many consoles did PS2 sell in the latter half of it's life while being priced around 100 dollars or less? Has PS3 stopped selling completely now since PS4 is out? Now it's time for the big question: If PS3 ends up selling say a 130 million is it still a failure somehow since x360 and wii "stole it's margetz zharez"? Or is it possible to think that this time around for the first time ever people actually found all 3 consoles worth buying instead of only buying a Playstation? Can this be seen as a win-win-win for all three manufacturers? And gaming in general? Or do you want to bring up this imaginary pissing contest of market share just for the sake of making some kind of negative spin on this thing (on Sony I mean ofc).

@Insomnium,

Can it be a win for all 3? It could have been, but it wasn't. Sony hasn't just lost market share, they've lost their ability to maintain a profit in the gaming division over the last 5-6 years. Sony didn't just lose hardware market share, they lost software too.

The PS4 is a huge step in the right direction on the hardware front, but software still lags and is something that needs addressed. Mandatory subscription to Plus for online play will go a long way in bringing in revenue Sony desperately needs.

The PS2 faced off against the Xbox and the Gamecube much like the PS3 faced off against the Xbox 360 and the Wii. When the Xbox stopped production, the PS2 was at the 125 million mark. They went on to sell 25 more million when they hit the $100 mark and were the only manufacturer left producing previous gen consoles.

Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 continue to sell unlike the last gen when Microsoft killed the Xbox. Sales numbers are increasing for both consoles.

The thing is though is that even though the ps2 outsold ogxbox by Millions, that fact that the xbox360 was released a whole year before the ps3 is a huge deal not because of the time but because by the time the xbox360 released everybody was desiring a true HD next gen console.

So really the xbox360 had all that time to get people to impulse buy the 360 because it was the first HD console that pact massive hardware for its time and that was what people were wanting and since the ps3 was nowhere in sight everybody just bought the 360.

i know i switch from ps2 to xbox360 because i couldn't wait for the next gen experience so i bought it and enjoyed it for 4 years then they stopped the support and i picked up the ps3 with God of War 3 and uncharted 2, a console changing experience for me.

Again with the market share....sigh. So you think the gaming audience almost tripled in size in the timeframe of one gen? I'm not even going to touch the rest of your comment but this is something I would like for you to explain.
Death  +   255d ago
PS2 150 million
Xbox 25 million
Gamecube 25 million

200 million for the 6th generation

PS3 80 million
Xbox 360 80 million
Wii 100 million

260 million for the 7th generation

That shows growth of 60 million give or take since we all know the first wave of 360's that hit the market had more defects than normal. How did you get triple from this?
insomnium2  +   254d ago
@death

I'll admit that I didn't double check my math at all for that comment but you are implying that every single piece of hw is sold to a new customer. Only one per customer and only one console manufacturer per customer too.

With PS2 atleast 50 million sold are rebuys for one reason or another. It has been on the store shelves for a friggen decade. Calculating sales over this long a period in the name of market share is downright idiotic.

Another thing to consider is that Wii sold to a new audience (the so called soccer moms). The gaming audience didn't grow because of Wii since these people will not buy a "proper" console in their life most likely. Another audience that bought the Wii was people like me. I didn't buy it for me though but my 8 and 10yo kids use it on a daily basis even today. People like me bought it to play with the kids.

I have a PS3 and a Wii. I bought my x360 used since MS was and still is BS imo. The thing RRODd and I sold it years ago. the point is though that since I found Wii worth buying I bought it. Same with PS3. That's 2 console sales with one person. If everyone is like me your gaming audience which grew 60 million iyo seems kinda...well not sure what really...not accurate to say the least.

It's nothing but a pissing contest with you with this. Why didn't you answer my question about PS3 selling 130 million? Is it a failure by some measure then?

Yeah. Halo will definitnly have huge launch numbers and will shift units. i think there will be about 15 to 20 million xbx ones sold by the time halo5 is released late next year so the launch numbers should be very high indeed...

im certain many gamers (esp halo fans) who are still sitting on the fence will be forced to go out and buy xbox ones and thats why Phil needs to make sure halo5 and the other big games have a great showing at E3...really great showing.

A brief teaser of gears and a definite launch time frame for Halo, Sunset overdrive and Quantum break will probably help boost xbox ones sales numbers post E3 and also help game pre-orders take off and not forgetting the 26 new countries Ms will be launching the xboxnne in by september this year... Ms just needs to make sure this E3 is the most awesome theyve ever done.

great stuff ahead guys...E3 will be amazing this year.

The stuff you are hearing about DX12 from the people that matter are talking about pc , it won't be some massive boost for the xbone even MS themselves said maybe a 20 percent boost I can imagine they where exaggerating at that number. DX11 is lot that bad that DX12 would double Its performance.

I am mainly a pc gamer but I don't even have that high a hopes for the pc version let alone the xbone one.

Its not me who said that but the average of gamers. They needed 1h 40m for the main story and about 20 minutes for speedrun. http://www.howlongtobeat.co...

I didnt play the game, not I won't pay 60 euros for a game with this duration. The demo of Bravely Default took me more than GZ to finish it.

I am agry to be honest with the nice sales of that game because if we, the gamers, support a game like this we will see many games of same duration in the future from other companies too, not only Konami. I started playing video game in 1990 with games of 30-40 hours, I can't play a 2-hours game in 2014........

@pheature Well that's your opinion. Buying DLC is no different than this and I beat you one of those that buy $15 COD DLC maps yearly.

3 key takeaways.

1.Titanfall has staying power
2. Infamous was not supported, with the rest of its launch week included it on bested Titanfall by about 16,000. At this rate TF will be outselling infamous by next week. Also consider this is a staple playstation game coming after about a 4 month gap vs a new ip.
3.USA ps4 owners don't buy a lot of games when compared to XB1 owners. Sales numbers only mean so much if games aren't being purchased. 250,000 less consoles, but nearly 1 million more game purchases. 360 sold approximately 90 MILLION more games.

So are we going to ignore vgchartz.com this week or not because people liked what they saw last week. Also stop the vg under tracks ps4 nonsense, XB1 was more undertracked than ps4 last month according to NPD.

It' absolutely incredible how blinkered you are ... Astonishing in fact. You mention how the X1 was undertracked by more than the PS4 last month (which is correct!), but seem to have completely overlooked the fact that every month preceding last month saw the X1 overtracked and the PS4 undertracked. This is why everyone knows that VGC are undertracking with the PS4. NPD is your friend if you ignore when it's not.

VGC is always off regardless who's leading. XB1 was under-tracked for February and over-tracked the every other month, while the PS4 has been under-tracked every month since it launched.

It didnt come free with my day one purchase. I reserved titanfall and paid 60 for it and I know a ton of people who purchased it online.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   255d ago
It amazes me how your so adamant to compare to games that couldn't be more different, purely because they are exclusives (TF isn't strictly an exclusive, but you know what i mean).

It really shows your desperation and bitterness at the PS brand when you compare those 2 games sales. Titanfall is a MP FPS......that is instant mass appeal. Infamous could never match that, even if it is an established franchise. Just like Uncharted doesn't match Halo's sales. You are comparing 2 games, when they only have one thing in common....brand exclusivity.

And lol at you saying that calling out VGCartz for under-tracking the PS4 is invalid just because they under-tracked the X1 ONCE. Just like Gribble said, the PS4 has been continuously under-tracked by VGCgartz since it's launch. So yes, it is still a viable thing to say.

"Also consider this is a staple playstation game coming after about a 4 month gap vs a new ip. "

VS a new ip that is, again, a hugely appealing FPS that has been marketed to death. Compared to a single player only super/anti hero open world game. Why don't you consider that? Typical truefan conveniently bringing up some things but forgetting to mention others.

Also, your argument that Infamous should be doing better than TF because it's an established franchise is bogus, because the genre of the game is still the same....it's still an SP-only, open world super/anti hero game going against a mass appeal FPS with a huge marketing campaign. Infamous SS sales are much higher than it's predecessors, that matters much more than comparing it's sales to a MP FPS.....

"Sales numbers only mean so much if games aren't being purchased"

Lmao, gotta love them goalposts moving. Now hardware sales don't matter? Are you insane? Selling less games = "games aren't being purchased"......seriously , do you even read your comments back to yourself? The PS4 is leading worldwide....you really need to accept that fact.

There is Titanfall marketing plastered on the outside and inside of GameStop. They've painted half of the electronics section at Walmart with Titanfall crap.

The weekly ads for GameStop still have Xbox One and Titanfall as a big feature.

I completely understand it. It's millions and millions of marketing dollars.

On top of that, there are tons of F2P games on PS4 and PS Plus, as well. These charts don't track digital sales. Every Xbox One sold in the US right now is another Titanfall or Forza sale.

* at this point it must be noted that commenter A did not do such a thing and commenter B is actually making stuff up.

Commenter C) yak yak yak .... CONSOLE A RULZ DA WORLD.

Commenter D) who really cares ?

Then more people join in throwing numbers and links all over the place in a desperate attempt to feel good about their choice of console.

Great numbers for all. Glad Titanfall is still selling like a beast and would only imagine that it will continue to sell as long as there are XB1 deals going on. Kind of like what COD:MW did when it was released, that game stay at the top portion of the chart for like a whole year.

Huh? I think everyone expected infamous in week2 to sell more than Titan falls 3rd week. Sales typically trail downward after launch.

Overall, TitanFall has sold more copies. And it looks like it will continue to do so... Despite being sold on a console with a much smaller installed base.

What people probably didn't expect is for titanfall in its 3rd week to be tracking so closely to the ps4 exclusive that just launched...

That's is important if you are a shareholder. For us gamers, what is important is which company has won consoles generations with their quality products and innovation. Which company has delivered the best library of games in the past?

Sony has won 2 console generations and has proved to have the strongest library in the past.

The gap would definitely close up some. How much, I'm not sure. But if we're talking about Japan, I highly doubt that would make any kind of impact, particularly because the XBOX 360 only sold about 1.6 million units TOTAL. It's bewildering, honestly. We will see how things go.

I like how many Japanese-developed games are in the top 10. I know the last 10 years has really been about the rise of western game development (among other things of course) and the subsequent fall of Eastern importance. But I'm more sick of western-style AAA games than I ever was Japanese design tenancies.

So I find that I miss playing their games and feel a real pleasure in seeing them do well.
