PS4 1.9* XBone globally. Interesting numbers. This at a time with major game releases so if we look back and reconsider these numbers we have to conclude that Titanfall did not do much or rather enough to stem the PS4 domination globally as was expected by most rational thinkers.

adorie1472d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

I actually thought it'd boost' bone sales by 900-1.5mil.

That's with splashed ads in major cities, sponsored ads at major events, internet hype train and two of the biggest games publishers "making sure" it will succeed.

I'm surprised, actually.

Right,Pandaboy. We have yet to get solid numbers from MS? I haven't seen any. I hadn't taken bundling into account and the price cuts on the game and console, before and during launch week.

pandaboy1471d ago

It was also bundled for free with every console so I'm surprised both Titanfall sales and Xbox1 sales were not higher this month. It flopped taking into consideration the hype.

shivvy241471d ago

I'm glad the vita is doing great, wanna see more AAA support from sony

truefan11471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

Since everyone wants to talk about Titanfall, it definitely did is job. Nearly a 40% attach rate according to vgcgartz, probably even higher. Since the Titanfall beta week ended Feb 22, 597631 consoles have been sold in basically 2 countries. That's 100000 per week for US and UK with TF and PvZ being the only 2 games released. The hype you guys talk about was lead by the SDF constantly trying to downplay it and people that actually played it praising it. Infamous had the same amount of commercials as Titanfall. For XB1 alone they are already nearing 2 million and counting. Also if you guys want to talk about the bundle, people are essentially paying 450 for titanfall, so don't use that as an excuse, this is not like knack being bundled.

Also i can't wait for year end, add those additional 30+ counties including CHINA, that could make up 1 million sales. Of course not proportional, I'm talking total. China is a big wildcard, people may buy consoles just because they can legally for the first time in over 10 years. I expect XB1 to be the most successful console over there for obvious reasons.

This is hilarious, not one complaint about the validity of vgchartz. I guess their validity is on a week to week basis.

PS if you haven't noticed I really enjoy getting disagrees, it let's me know I'm making sense by striking a nerve.

scott1821471d ago

Wow, Sony still doing great; Nintendo also. Good job to them.

GribbleGrunger1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

@truefan1: There you go again. You ARE just making stuff up as you go along to suit your argument. We constantly got articles and comments about how Infamous wasn't being promoted and here you are saying it was promoted equally as well just to prove your point. You have no credibility at all.

And for goodness sake quit it with the argument about the X1 not releasing in as many countries. In the countries it IS released in it's getting beaten by the PS4. That 2.6 million lead will expand every week so you'd better just get used to it and use your console for the reason you bought it: To play games.

GarrusVakarian1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )


No, you get disagrees because you're plain wrong, don't try and twist your own disagrees into positives, that's insane.

Now, check out this hypocrisy -

"Nearly a 40% attach rate according to vgcgartz, probably even higher. "

" not one complaint about the validity of vgchartz. I guess their validity is on a week to week basis."

So VGChartz is valid when it comes to stating Titanfall's attachment rate, but not when it shows the PS4 beating the X1 in sales? Hypocrite much?

" Infamous had the same amount of commercials as Titanfall."

No it did not, that is a lie and you know it. TF had a WAY larger advertising/marketing campaign than Infamous SS......ridiculously larger. Stop making things up in order to spin facts. Just accept the fact that, according to VGChartz, Infamous has almost sold as many copies as TF in the US....for a SP-only game to do that against a mass appeal MP FPS that has been touted as the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ and the game that will revolutionise the FPS genre, despite launching a week after, is a great achievement.

You need to step up your game, you are constantly making stuff up and contradicting yourself in your comments. Although ive always disagreed with you, you *used* to actually put effort into your comments, now you just spew random BS and make things up/troll.

"PS if you haven't noticed I really enjoy getting disagrees, it let's me know I'm making sense by striking a nerve"

awwwwwww whatever you say you poor thing:3

SO your telling me that your telling me that You're waiting til the End of the Year for Xone to Launch in other countries :/. Ok PS4 already launched in those Countries So everyone's gonna have a PS4 by then So what makes you think Xone will do well there when the Majority of Gamers in those Countries will already Have PS4's unless you think there gonna wait months for Xone, and Now you think that Xone will be the most Successful in China For What again?

"The PS2 didn't make its original launch date. Instead, Sony waited till 2004 to launch the PS2 in China. Even then, there were issues with game releases, which also required government approval. In total, ten games were released for the PS2 in China—the PS2 was also launched in Hong Kong and Taiwan at around the same time, but with over 300 titles."

I don't know if this is still the Case But games might still have to be approved by the GOV in China which will lead to a limited library of games for those consoles So lower Demand. So i wouldn't bet on China if i were you.

NewMonday1471d ago

today Sony announced inFAMOUS:SS sold over 1 million in just 9 days

but VGChartz still list it 930k in 2 weeks, just proves you can't trust them, they don't have any real sales data.

frankdrebin721471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

to be honest i have no intrest in infamous...thats my opinion, you guys have one about titanfall.
i havent even played infamous nor want to,..again my choice so i aint going to trash talk a game i havent played,...yet a lot of hate for titanfall ...this is strange,..i understand your choice of not wanting to play it,..but to rubbish a game you never played is indeed a strange one....
titanfall as i stated before has more replay its multi player.
infamous hasnt multi player,..thus logic would say that once you played both versions,..the "fun" aspect would disperse??
i honestly wonder that the great sales both have enjoyed,..and infamous has helped the ps4 drought,...i wonder what the actual figures from a legit source would say which game has been played the most hours??..which game has had the most trade in for another game??
i know that once i play a game through its the multi player that keeps me playing it,..and thus the price of the game is worth it...and i get "my moneys worth"
just my humble opinion.

SilentNegotiator1471d ago


People weren't betting on Titanfall's high attach rate - Wii U has some high attach rates on games but no one wants to be in Nintendo's position with home consoles - people were betting on it expanding Xbone's userbase.

Also the price cuts down to $450

No_Limit1472d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

Actually it did. This is the third week of Titanfall release so the figures will of course drop down to pretty much normal but if you look at the release week, it increases the Xbox One total to 108% at 155,000 units sold and was the best selling console in the World during the launch week. So Titanfall did its job, so has inFamous on PS4. Now it is just back to normal sales figure as the PS4 is more popular worldwide and is released in way more territories.

Edit @xHeavYx below,
"you still have a hard time finding it because it's SELLING, on the other hand, you can find Xbox Ones everywhere "

LOL, You been living in a cave? The PS4 has been widely available in stores for like a month now. You can find it practically anywhere.

Here take a look if you don't believe me

xHeavYx1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

It doesn't matter in how many more territories the PS4 released, you still have a hard time finding it because it's SELLING, on the other hand, you can find Xbox Ones everywhere
Besides, the PS4 is outselling the One in every territory where both consoles released, so nothing would change

CaptainSellers1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

Here no_limit

Have some salt

Drekken1471d ago

I will give you credit for sticking to your guns. You are definitely consistent.

I have never once seen a PS4 in stock in any retail store I have been in... I have seen plenty of XBoxes.

You must be living in a cave to think that the Xbox is selling well. The PS4 is just a more desirable console this gen worldwide. Titanfall was a blip on the map for the Xbox. Go read about it on the internet. Cheats, exploits, and plenty of people telling their story about how bored they are with it.

Not like anything I could say would sway you. Stay strong.

Sarcasm1471d ago

The Xbox One is widely excessive available at any retail store.

The PS4 though is available at some stores. I wouldn't say widely available.

It's a USA focused game on a USA focused console.

thrust1472d ago

MS really needs to hurry up and release the console everywhere!

InTheLab1471d ago

Most of its features only work in the US

SniperControl1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

And do what?

The Xbox brand only does well in two regions that is the USA and the UK(which accounted for the bulk of sales for the 360), the rest of the world is Playstation orientated.

I'am afraid the X1 is going struggle to sell everywhere else, I think MS are acutely aware of this.

Shame though, as I think the X1 is a good console(looking forward to getting mine soon)

thrust1471d ago

Am in uk beta program and have all the features they are coming the trust me and they work pretty good!

Mr_Writer851471d ago

They would if the demand was there.

Why would you cut the supply in a country where there IS demand.

To sell consoles in a country with no/very little demand?

Why do you think Sony held back from Japan?

Well the fact it shitting all over the X1 shows why.

chrisarsenalsavart1471d ago

Yeah, because they re gonna sell so many X1 more in Denmark, Holland...etc

One game don't boost consoles sales anymore these days.
which mean Titanfall did not do much as expected.

SilentNegotiator1471d ago

So basically, PS4 and Xbone were neck and neck in the US, but PS4 just about doubled Xbone in WW figures. Xbone only got ~30K in non-US regions; wow.

Magicite1471d ago

Just imagine if Titanfall wouldnt launch this early this year or if it would be available also on PS4, then X720 would be obliterated.

What surprises me is the different in the PS3 and the 360.

PS3 still selling decently, but the 360 has dropped.

akaFullMetal1472d ago

Again vgchartz......., but it seems titanfall didn't help the X0 as much as many as hoped.

No_Limit1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

It is on its third week, what do you expect? Big games like Halo and Uncharted also have dropped offs after an initial boost to console sales after their launch week so of course it is back to normal sales figure now probably until the new Halo drop. Overall both consoles did great and both are ahead of their predecessors at the same time frame after launch so it is a good sign in the gaming industry.

SilentNegotiator1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

It's not about a mere drop; Titanfall was expected to be the "savior" to Xbone selling less than Ps4. And it did...but only for a SINGLE week (and only by ~12K units). People both professional and civilian were expecting a lot more out of this game.

hello121472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

You forget the PS4 is selling in 53 countries the x box 1 13 countries.

The lead isn't that huge really and can be easily closed, in a year or two.

X box 1 is likely to sell better in China too. Japan goods are not selling well there. China sells lots of goods to the Americans, the Chinese government will welcome Microsoft more than Sony.

TheFallenAngel1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

And even if xbone was released in all those countries it would still be behind ps4. Ps4 is ahead on every country the xbone is available in. Why do people keep bringing that argument?
Also most of the countries where the xbone is available are the biggest economies in the world where it will sell the most consoles.

hello121471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

Maybe or maybe not. There second tier countries and Microsoft did well there with the 360

The 13 countries they sold to at launch were priority one countries. The bulk of sales were likely to come from there and Microsoft only had enough consoles for 13 countries at launch.

Microsoft likely would have sold least a million and half consoles or more in the other 40 countries.

Microsoft also did not launch in more countries, because new regional dashboards have to be done. XB1 has a new dashboard for every region. There is language barriers especially now with Kinect using voice controls.

Russian dashboard and Kinect not recognising Russian would be an issue. So Microsoft delayed launching in Russia just an example till this September.

[email protected]

The dispute hasn't ended between the China or Japan. So i don' post stuff i can't back up.

DJustinUNCHAIND1471d ago

It doesn't matter if it's still ahead, but you can't say that it doesn't wouldn't close the gap at all. There are consoles to be sold in those places.

scott1821471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

"Microsoft likely would have sold least a million and half consoles or more in the other 40 countries."

How on earth are you getting that figure? Microsoft was almost non existent outside of the major markets last gen, a couple hundred thousand at MOST up to this point would be more accurate. It was actually Sony that did well outside of them last gen.

scott1821471d ago


Also I wouldn't bet on either company doing well in China. Most of the people that play games there make a very small amount of money and are used to a free games model on PC. They are not used to and can't afford shelling out large amounts of money on systems and games.

frostypants1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

@DJustinUNCHAIND, selling in those countries would not necessarily close the gap. It would likely just slow the rate of the growth of that gap. Those markets are small potatoes. It would be like counting on finding change in your couch cushions to help pay for your new car.

Bathyj1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

How can we forget when we keep getting reminded every week?

it's no one's fault but Microsoft's that they only care about USA and UK so people need to stop making that excuse. They could have launched everywhere if they wanted too, they had the stock lying around.

Beside, does anyone think those extra 10k a week is going to close the gap? No, it's just going to slightly slow it's widening.

Hicken1471d ago

Nobody forgot. They just realize it really doesn't matter, since the XB1 is losing in all 13 of those territories.

The lead is bordering on 2:1 both weekly and overall; what do you think will turn that around "easily?"

Not exactly sure what makes you think China would pick Xbox over Playstation, but that's not likely to happen, as I can see the Chinese government treating the Kinect as an American spy device.

Still don't know why I bother. You can say something off base like this and get a well said, and I'll be marked as off topic for even mentioning that fact.

DanielGearSolid1471d ago

Who forgets?

Nobody forgot that, since every week another Xbox fan is saying it. But somehow none of you answer the simple question...

How many of those 13 territories is the Ps4 not beating the X1?

As far as the lead being "easily" closed, the "Biggest FPS of the year" plus price drops galore didnt even make dent, soooo....

stuna11471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )


A waste of breath! It's obvious that in the minds of Microsoft fanatics, Unicorns do exist, there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, Bigfoot lives next door to me and we play poker every Thursday night!

This exactly why Microsoft was hesitant about releasing numbers, because although some feel these are good solid numbers for TitanFall and the Xbox1, it's clear Microsoft doesn't share that sentiment! What's really bugging some is the fact that the PS4 still outsold the Xbox1 even with its biggest title to date, and that s coupled with a price drop!

Microsoft knows above all else that Xbox1 is not performing to their expectations, why do you think all this news about DX12, the Cloud, machine side accelerated Ray Tracing etc. etc. is coming from??? There are those who don't mind being fooled, but if most would stop and look at the bigger picture, it would become easier to connect the dots.

One thing everyone should know about Microsoft, they are very boastful! And because of that they show when they are bluffing, and when they are being truthful.

I'll give you one such example; Remember when Sony went on record as saying the PS4 is the most powerful console ever made!? Microsoft never disputed it! But a couple weeks down the line, we started hearing about how the cloud would make the Xbox1 3 to 4 times stronger.

Here's another example; Remember when Killzone released and Sony commented on how well it was selling? Well here is Microsoft response to that! They started talking about how many Zombies had been killed in Dead Rising 3, how many executions in Ryse and, how many overtakes in Forza 5.All the while avoiding the talk of sales.

How could anyone forget how they tried to say they sold through 4 million Xbox1 just 2 month ago, but yet they are just passing 4 million now! My all time favorite is when both released Sony in 2 countries and Microsoft in 11, the one complaining now weren't doing so when Microsoft had released in more countries! And even then the Xbox1 was only leading by less than 200,000 consoles.

All in all, fanatics pick and choose their arguments when they think it helps their case.

bryam19821471d ago

And you forget sony still outselling xbone in the same 13 territories they have released so what's your excuse for that? Even in the US ("xbox territory") ps4 is.outselling xbone by more than 200,000 units

SniperControl1471d ago

People seem to forget that the PS4 is made in China, the PS3 was made in China, most of Sony's phones are made in China, at a commerce level, China and Japan do well together, my company deals with both countries, I have been in meetings with both, been out drinking with both. They get on just fine.

Show me the stats to back up your claims regarding the Chinese don't buy Japanese goods as much.

China is one of the growing economic powers in the world, when it comes to making money they will take anyone's money.

stiggs1471d ago

@ SniperControl

I tried to respond to your private message but you blocked me (???) so I'll just post my thoughts here.

Why so angry? I must have hit pretty close to the mark in my assessment of your previous comment.

In the PM that you sent to me you said that "UK law states if the item can't be repaired, it has to be replaced by a brand new item, unless agreed before hand".

So, are you claiming that Microsoft broke the law through willful misinterpretation when they instituted their Xbox 360 replacement policy utilizing refurbished consoles? Interesting, as this is the first that I've heard of such a serious infraction. One would think that there would have been a bigger uproar if an official investigation by the Office of Fair Trading uncovered such a malfeasance. I'm fairly sure that MS didn't violate any of the consumer warranty or statutory rights when they shipped refurbished units as replacements in the UK.

I find it curious that your feel that MS is obligated to give you a brand new console as a replacement but you believe that Sony is not beholden to even grant a repair on a defective PS3. A perceived reliability record should not influence policy or negate an obligation to the consumer. You state that MS "had no choice" but to offer free repairs". Perhaps that is true as the RROD issue was damaging to thier reputation with the gaming community as well as their bottom line. By that logic we can say that Sony used their "perfectly good reliability record" (which is not very good if you ask me) to make a conscious decision to NOT offer assistance to those that purchased faulty PS3 units. So, who made the bigger infration...the company that owned up to their mistake and replaced faulty units (MS) or the company that deliberately instituted a fee to repair defective consoles (Sony)?

You should avoid the aggressive stance and use of profanity in your responses. It invalidates a lot of your comments and makes you sound immature. I don't have any issue with you posting contradictory opinions but cursing me out in a PM and then blocking me is simply juvenile.

SniperControl1471d ago


Are you aware of all the facts, do you know exactly what my circumstances are??

The UK sale of goods act protects consumers from these sorts of practices no matter who the company is, it is the law, all company's trading in the UK have to abide by it.

Any faulty item that can not be repaired with-in it's warranty period has to be replaced by a new or equivalent model, if a refurbished model is offered, the customer must be notified and agree for the refurb.

MS sent out a refurb 360 without notifying me first, I refused it out of principle because the I paid £250 for a new one only 6 months earlier, I understand I would been offered a refurb outside warranty and I would have accepted that, but with-in 6 months of sale, no way.

The sale of goods act in the USA is vastly different from the UK, it protects the consumer and not the corporations.
EA just had there butt's kicked over in the UK courts over the debacle that is Battlefield 4, due to the ruling EA are now have to adhere to refund requests from unsatisfied customers.

I blocked you because I don't appreciate people PMing me and lecturing me on a subject they know nothing about, I have nothing against MS as a company, however there customer care has a lot to answer for.

popyto1471d ago

One of the problems with this argument is looking at the sales in two major countries it has released where it is barely making a dent in sales France and Germany. If MS had stronger markets to release it in than those it would have, these are 2 massive markets where I would have thought the sales would have been much closer but sadly not.

China is a massive market admittedly but its a very new and untested one, there will be a lot of variables that could either sway it towards or away from MS no one knows with any certainty.

bleedsoe9mm1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

even at a 2-1 margin in unreleased xb1 countries , ms numbers would raise by 1.5-2 million consoles sold if markets were equal . still a very nice sony lead

Flamingweazel1471d ago

@BLED no do some research, those other countries are small like costa rica, it makes up 5-10%MAX of sales you would see 5 k a week maybe 10 good weeks, they would add 500% globally total thats it...x1 is also easy to get in these countries now. Stop the 13 versuis 48 bs.

bleedsoe9mm1471d ago

@Flamingweazel first its 54 vs 13 , and its small markets like northern and eastern europe , all of africa and the middle east , most of south america , and all of asia and the sub continent of india .

bleedsoe9mm1471d ago

if people want the real numbers do a market by market comparison , sony would still be ahead by less than 1 million consoles . which is still a very decent lead .

AceBlazer131471d ago

Well let us disregard the other countries and look at the 13 they share. Would you look at that ps4 stil sells more. What's so hard in that for you idiots to grasp.

HeWhoWalks1471d ago (Edited 1471d ago )

If the gap can be "easily" closed, why couldn't the 360 continue to outsell the PS3 when the latter was MORE EXPENSIVE? Without EU/JP backing, the Xbox can't stay/pull ahead of PlayStation. Period. It's a far weaker brand, globally.

Make no mistake, I expect some weeks to favor Xbox this gen, but the PS4 is the market leader and will remain there.

kenshiro1001471d ago

Please, stop using that freaking excuse already.

calis1471d ago

zerog1471d ago

In all 13 countries BOTH are released in sony is still leading. At the rate things are going the U.S. and U.K. are the only ones ms has a snowballs chance in hell of closing the gap in but when you look at the sales data for those 2 and see that the gap is still slowly expanding rather then shrinking with every ps4 shipment even that looks doubtful. 4 mil in this early isn't really all that bad for console sales so just suck it up, get over it and stop with the bs.
