It should be interest how he's going to fix his numbers when true numbers finally hit! It's sad that VGChartz are the only numbers people can go to in order to get a ballpark figure worldwide.

Good thing Sony have been pretty consistant when hiting milestones by giving numbers.

Axios21454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

TitanFall #1 and #3 world wide

Dat staying power

@ACE, I see P vs Z, Forza 5, Sports Rivals, etc, to say nothing of all the multi plats

AceBlazer131454d ago

Lol keep the fight up brother.

Nice little thing i noticed as well Axios. Outside of Titanfall i don't see much more if any other Xbone games appearing at all.

So would 'it has nothing else', the line you guys threw at KZSF in November apply to Titanfall now? Or is this another one of those goal post double standard thing?

xHeavYx1454d ago

Spam much?
Funny that VGchartz show MS selling almost 4.5M even if MS just announced that they SHIPPED 5M. Not only that, but MS is also slowing X1 production

aceitman1454d ago

and titanfall X1 is at 3 because there bundled with the system and it will be up there until they stop bundling titanfall with x1 . as u see its close to the X1 sales .just like knack in japan on ps4

TomShoe1454d ago

I don't believe these numbers. PS4 has dropped like a rock, yet Xbox sales remain suspiciously steady...

georgeenoob1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

Wow X1 is available in only 13 countries compared to PS4's 72 and it only sold 30k more?

PS4 is available in WAY more territories in Europe. This pretty much confirms the X1 is outselling PS4 in the territories that both are in.

"So would 'it has nothing else', the line you guys threw at KZSF in November apply to Titanfall now? Or is this another one of those goal post double standard thing?"
Infamous is the only exclusive out for PS4 in the same timeframe and look how poorly It's selling. This is why third parties are comfortable making exclusives on Xbox, it simply sells way more despite the larger install base.

It's funny how people are discrediting VGchartz now that TF is dominating and PS4 is getting smaller leads despite being in 6x more territories. Yet at the beginning of the year no one said anything cause the PS4 was peaking.


AGaryColemanClone1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

"I don't believe these numbers."

Nor should anyone.

Vgchartz is a fake sales site run by a 20 year old hardcore Xbox fanboy.

Back towards the end of the Xbox 360's first year Microsoft was desperate to put out a press release claiming '10 million sold!'. The problem was they had only sold 8 million Xbox 360s. So Microsoft flooded the retail channel with massive numbers of extra Xbox 360s. The stores were overflowing with stacks of unsold Xbox 360s.

A hardcore Xbox fanboy on the neogaf forums by the name of ioi at that time was pretending to have access to retail sales data. The little Xbox fan tried to pretend the massive overshipment numbers coming out from Microsoft were real. He was so dumb about it he got himself permabanned for trying to pass off hilariously fake and inflated Xbox 360 sales numbers.

He ran off and created his fake sales site vgchartz and has been putting out fake sales numbers ever since. No surprise that his fake made up sales numbers are ridiculously above known sales numbers for Microsoft and the opposite for Sony.

Xbox One real sales numbers
3 million sold at the start of 2014
150k+250k+310k=710k sold in the US in 2014
0k sold in Japan
No numbers for all of Europe, but the known real sales numbers have the Xbox One selling only about 40-50k a month in Europe right now.

That brings the Xbox Ones verified global sales data as:

3 million
+ 711k - US in 2014
+ 0k - Japan in 2014
+ 150k - Europe in 2014

Only about 3.86 million Xbox Ones sold

Unless you want to play the vgchartz game of pretending there are 100s of thousands of Xbox One sales in tiny unnamed countries outside of the US,Japand,and Europe.

In other words the PS4 is very close to or already at double the Xbox One's global installed base numbers after only 6 months.

Themba761454d ago

dude I got titanfall for 360 that game aint even close to being what it was hyped up to be got bored with it in 3 days feels like cod with parcour and mechs. thank God bf4 is finally fixed because that game easily crushes it now.

ziggurcat1454d ago

@ georgeenoob:

"This pretty much confirms the X1 is outselling PS4 in the territories that both are in."


also, no one has ever given VGchartz any credit at any point. no, sorry... only xbox fans have ever given VGchartz credit.

AGaryColemanClone1454d ago

""This pretty much confirms the X1 is outselling PS4 in the territories that both are in."


Amazing isn't it?

Six months after launch and there are still major retail stores that are out of stock of PS4s:

And only six months after launch the CFO of Microsoft is warning that they are going to have slow down or outright halt manufacturing of Xbox Ones because demand is so low.

Vgchart is to sales as MisterXMedia is to console hardware for Xbox fans.

sic_chops1454d ago

@george ps4 is outselling xbone in every territory that both are in. Check your facts. Just look at Europe. It's over 3 million behind and these 13 territories are Microsofts strongest.

Bigpappy1454d ago

PS fans do this every year. When PS is doing well per VGCharz, the use it to slam Xbox. When it shows PS in decline, it is time to ban the site, LOL.

scott1821454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

Wow, Sony #1 spot, Great job! I keep expecting Nintendo to overtake, it's usually close. I think the big 2 will keep the 1 and 2 spot for a long time, changing between the 2. Nintendo and Sony first party games doing well, good to see.

SilentNegotiator1454d ago

You mean bundle and price cut power?

morganfell1454d ago

Well BigPappy you are not talking about me when you say PS fans. How about using a little precision in your comments. I have never trusted, believed in, heeded, valued, or given two ....s about vgchartz. They are the equivalent of the rampant worthless attempts at journalism and just another kind of dishonesty that harms our industry.

avengers19781454d ago

@axious and why do you check the sales data on all the games you mentioned, none did very well at all, as for multiplats, well they all sold better on PS4
@georgeenoob #1 for the XB1 to catch up to PS4, XB1 has to out sell the PS4 if it is behind by 30,000 a week, than that means the PS4 lead grows by about 120,000 units a month. #2 when XB1 releases in the "tier 2" countries and is still losing world wide sales, will you drop the excuses?

If anyone wants proof VgCharts is not accurate look at March, every week they had XB1 selling more in the US than PS4, and then NPD numbers came out and PS4 out sold XB1 in America by almost 60,000 units.

GarrusVakarian1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

That's three times in three separate VGC articles that you have just buried your head in the sand against the fact that the PS4 is outselling the X1 and mentioned TitanFall instead. You have any idea how denial-ridden that makes you appear? What about PS4's staying power, why don't you mention that? What happens when TF drops off the top spot, what are you going to replace it with?

modesign1453d ago

it just shows that there were no good games to get that week when people resorted to buying titanfall.

ps. cant wait to see the sales of watchdogs, that will be a big seller.

NewMonday1453d ago

fake numbers for desperate people

just makes it more fun to see them squirm when the NPD is released next week

I don't know why they keep torturing themselves

stuna11454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

VGChartz even goes as far as putting negative signs in front of zero growth or gain figures when it comes to PlayStation related hardware. I just wish someone would prove him wrong once and for all and, in the process prevent his site from posting everywhere.

NatureOfLogic_1454d ago

The kid that founded was banned from neogaf where he was known as ioi, because his numbers were bull. Here's a post of him arguing that shipped = sold on neogaf.

The kid is clueless and have even admitted to making up numbers in the past. I wouldn't take any of vgchartz numbers seriously.

AGaryColemanClone1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

Some other hilariously pathetic things about the Xbox fan who makes up the fake sales numbers at vgchartz.

Back in the Xbox 360 days he was going so over the top making up absurdly high Xbox 360 fake sales numbers that his Xbox 360 sales numbers were higher than Microsoft's know reported shipment numbers. Yep, he was claiming that more people had bought Xbox 360s than Microsoft had actually manufactured.

After even Xbox fans even started to laugh at how ridiculous the dumb kid was in making up his fake sales numbers, ioi went immediately into damage control mode and magically started to make up PS3 sales numbers that were too high for a brief period of time so that hardcore Xbox fans could cry out 'see he's no 'biased'!'

At one point his fake global sales numbers for the PS2 were 30 million under the known global sales numbers. Pretty obvious just how bitter the PS2 crushing the Xbox must have been for ioi.

You really have to shake your head in disgust that some kid has spent 7 years making up fake sales number every single week in a completely futile attempt to make Microsoft look like they are doing massively better than their real sales are.

All those years of effort by ioi and the Xbox 360 still came in last place.

T21454d ago

I don't understand why people are worried we are not making money and guess what there can be more then one successful console if there wasn't competition ps4 would have 4 gigs GDdr 5 just sayin. Who ever dosnt own both is missing out psx4 one for the win

candy_mafia1453d ago (Edited 1453d ago )

I agree, I own both...

I plan on just buying Xbox One exclusives, and I will buy multi-plats/exclusives for PS4.

Just like last gen when everyone who owned both consoles were only buying PS3 exclusives, but fully supporting 360 when it came to multi-plats and it's own exclusives.

I think it's only fair, given that PS4 is now lead :)

Xbox One is at around 4.0M (sold to consumers) and PS4 is at around 7.4M units globally, so VGFartz definitely under tracking PS hardware.

ITPython1453d ago (Edited 1453d ago )

Last gen it made more sense to own both, as the PS3 had the exclusives and the 360 had the edge for multiplats (for most of the gen anyway) and also was praised for XBL.

This time around the PS4 has the edge in both exclusives and multiplats, and PS+ is also far FAR above XBL.

As of yet the XB1 has no decent exclusives (don't forget, TF is not exclusive), which would be the one and only reason to buy one. And considering it's price-point, weaker hardware and forced kinect hardware bundling, buying an XB1 at this point in time is not the best choice.

Perhaps in 2016, or 2017 it will have accumulated enough exclusives for it to be worth picking up. Plus by then the price will be a lot lower and there's a good chance of getting a kinectless version as well.

Gamer6661454d ago

Their hardware numbers are usually pretty good. Their software numbers... Well... They aren't worth anything.

You look at the PS3, 360, and Wii numbers from last gen on VGC, compare them with announcements from the companies and they aren't off by much. Same with this gen.

dantesparda1454d ago

Thats cuz they go back in and correct the numbers after Sony and MS or NPD announce them, otherwise, they are usually really off. The site even admits its nothing more than guess work. Look at March for example, VG had X1 ahead every week in the US and then when the NPD numbers came out (far more credible), BAM!!! the PS4 outsold the X1 by over 60K. VG is fake, alot of guess work, with an agenda

corvusmd1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

Nice!!! Nice to see the numbers going towards each other, the best thing for gamers is to have it be competitive. Also side note....where did all those articles about TF dying already and not having the staying power of Infamous go? There was a couple weeks there where those articles were popping up left and right. These numbers suggest otherwise. TRUE, to a degree you have to take these numbers with a grain of salt...they aren't gospel or anything, but they may be the best indication of what is going on that we have.

It looks like PS4 has a big lead, but has plateaued for now (but it'd be stupid to think that it'll stay that way for ever, I'm sure Order/Uncharted etc will give another boost). XB1 is slowly crawling it's way up despite not having any new system seller releases....looks like in the future things can get really interesting. Esp when XB1 finally releases in more Eur countries and Japan....TRUE, those aren't exactly MS territory, but every sale will help close the gap a little more. Plus I wouldn't be surprised if sales in those countries we slow to build momentum from maybe a little resentment for having to wait longer. Either way, competition between these two titan companies is best. China is really MS's best hope for countries it hasn't been released in yet (and maybe South Korea, but they are rather small).

Angels37851454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )


MusicComposer1454d ago

Agreed, looking forward to the NPD this month.

mkis0071454d ago

Even by going off these numbers, which have no source, ps4's lead got bigger again. By over 30,000 units... this is no gap shrinking. You can only close a gap by outselling the competition. Seriously though...7 million as of the first week of April and you guys think 7.3 is accurate? Meanwhile xbox numbers dont add up either as others have shown with released data.

xavierbigdaddy19721454d ago

It will be a very long time before the xbox catches up to the ps4. But it is ok to dream

SniperControl1453d ago

This is the third VGChartz report today, Why is it still being used knowing how very unreliable it is?!

Abriael1454d ago

maybe people should start reporting them as lame, considering that they've been proven wrong time and time again.

They simply don't have a big enough pool of sources to be accurate, and IMHO they don't even qualify as rumor.

bleedsoe9mm1454d ago

neither does NPD and whatever metric sony is using to get a sold to consumer number , the only real number is the ms shipped to retailer .

GribbleGrunger1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

Yep, I feel as if VGC has only one more chance to prove themselves worthy of reference. Nobody expects them to be completely accurate but you would expect them to be 'on trend'. They've over-tracked the X1 every month and under-tracked the PS4 every month in America. They now have the X1 beating the PS4 every week in April.

This follows a month in which they were beaten even though they released Titanfall (with a HUGE marketing campaign), bundled it for FREE and reduced the price of the console.

The trends are obvious and unless VGC starts reflecting them, they're going to lose all credibility. The forums over there are already crammed with unanswered questions and when NPD comes in and proves them wrong once again, I can only see a downward spiral for the site.

I will say one thing though: ioi gets a bad rap and there is no doubt that he favours the X1 but, even though the forums there are now constantly questioning his credentials, I've never seen him once delete or ban anyone for speaking their minds. I give him the utmost respect for that.

AGaryColemanClone1454d ago

"Yep, I feel as if VGC has only one more chance to prove themselves worthy of reference."


Vgchartz is just some kid sitting at home at his mom's house making up fake numbers and uploading them to his fake sales website.

The pathetic Xbox fan at vgchartz, ioi, has been desperately putting out massively inflated Xbox hardware and software sales for seven years now.

Let me guess, you also feel that MisterXMedia has 'one more chance to prove himself'...

Retail tracking is an enormous and expensive process that major respected companies like NPD are only able to do once a month for a single country.

And you actually think some dumb little Xbox fan sitting at home is doing GLOBAL RETAIL TRACKING?

Come on...REALLY?

GribbleGrunger1454d ago (Edited 1454d ago )

No, MisterX is a complete idiot. I'm talking about 'one more chance' with it's OWN community. I joined VGC because of the forums there, and the reason is the users tend to get closer to the actual sales figures than the site itself.

I bet you didn't read beyond my first sentence before you wrote that. Be honest.

VGChartz April 2014 Global:
Week 1: 169,760 to 78,070
Week 2: 140,250 to 91,665
Week 3: 127,884 to 92,460
Week 4:

Week 3 total: 437,894 to 262,195 (1.67:1 ratio)

When Sony announces 8 million PS4s sold to consumers in mid-late May and VGChartz has it at ~7.6 million, people will lose even more confidence in VGChartz predictions. They are undertracking PS4 even further.

josephayal1454d ago
