Expect these numbers to be adjusted in favor of the PS4 just like VGC did with last weeks numbers. Then again even more so after NPD.

Concertoine1198d ago

Well the difference is less than 1k, that's negligible anyway. They just like seeing xbone on top.

FITgamer1198d ago

The difference is 1k in la la land, in reality it's more. If you look the weeks of April 5&19 you'll see they adjusted the numbers up for PS4 and down for Xbox one. So expect the same for this weeks.

AGaryColemanClone1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

"la la land"

Yep, vgchartz is to sales for Xbox fans as MisterXMedia is to them for console graphics hardware.

Its good to see Sony finally caught on to fake sales numbers that vgchartz puts out and is doing monthly global installed base number updates for the PS4. The xbox fan at vgchartz is pretty much hamstrung in his ability to put out significantly low fake numbers for the PS4.

Although with Microsoft being too embarrased to release any installed base numbers for the Xbox One in 2014 the Xbox fan at vgchartz has pretty much free rein to put out absurdly high fake global Xbox One sales.

georgeenoob1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

It's funny no one said anything about VGchartz at the beginning of the year when PS4 was peaking. Now that X1 is outselling PS4 they automatically discredit it. I can't imagine how stupid they'll look if X1 outsells PS4 in April.

I see Titanfall is STILL dominating. There's just no stopping it.

scott1821198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

Very even fight in the US, depending on how accurate these numbers are. I think Sony should make a bundle to counter MS's Titanfall bundle.
Sony and Nintendo first party games doing well, good to see.

Because everyone knew The PS4 was peaking we didn't need VGchartz to tell us :/.

morganfell1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

The gap being officially shown by Walmart, Gamestop, Bestbuy, and Amazon is the widest yet with the PS4 taking its biggest lead to date. Yet some desperate kid that runs vgchartz from his parent's basement is generating more fake numbers. When Thursday arrives mr vgchartz, prepare to get an entire humble pie shoved down your blind throat.

At Gamestop, the bestseller list has had the X1 below 100 for 2 weeks. At Amazon it has been sitting in the 30s. It is several places behind the PS4 at Best Buy and Walmart. WTH N4G? No wonder people at Gaf laugh at this site giving it less credit than gamefaqs or 4chan.

GribbleGrunger1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

A blind throat? Now there's a concept.

Last weeks figures were adjusted up for the PS4 and adjusted down for the X1. The only problem is that people have already read those figures and the adjustments are never ever republished on N4Gs ... not that they'd get passed the wall of reports anyway: 'Duplicate'.

It won't be long before people are calling NPD fake too. Watch.

PS4: 7.6m
XB1: 4.3m

I'd say they're the ball park figures at the moment.

AGaryColemanClone1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

"PS4: 7.6m
XB1: 4.3m"

LOL...

The PS4 was over 7 million as of April 6th and has been selling at roughly 900k to 1 million a month in 2014.

That means the PS4 is going to be over 7 million + 240k*3 weeks of sales. 7.7-8 million right now.

The Xbox One only sold 3 million by the start of 2014. And has only sold 711k in the US in 2014. It has sold 0k in Japan obviously.

The Xbox One has been absolutely bombing everywhere in Europe other than the UK. Legitimate sales numbers out of Europe have the Xbox One only selling about 40k a month in 2014.

That brings the Xbox One's real sales to only 3.8-3.9 million.

Feel free to show where these extra 400-500k of mystery sales are coming from for the Xbox One.

GribbleGrunger1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

I prefer to be conservative. And remember these figures are a week behind ... At the present moment it's probably around:

PS4: 7.7-8m (as you say)
XB1: 4.3-4m (I rounded up for last weeks figures)

MS will not have 1 million in the stream unsold. Most people agree it's between 700k to 800k. MS announced 5 million 'shipped' on the 17th of April. As far as Sony's number is concerned, it's not as simple as averaging the sales into monthly numbers because they sold over 1 million in 2 days in America and 900k in two days when it launched in Europe. You'd get closer if you averaged 5 - 5.5 million.

sckiptman1198d ago

@ georgenoob

It took 7 weeks to sell just over a million copies on xone. I would not say its doing as great as MS excpected and they probably lost money on this one.

Giul_Xainx1198d ago

PS4 will see another surge going into June. Summer break incoming!

mikeslemonade1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

After adjustments and taking into consideration that these numbers are old, it's safe to say the PS4 install base is almost 2:1 in comparison to X1.

And PS4 might hit 10 million already by the end of Summer. 14 million by the end of the year is a good goal for Sony.

^
Georgenoob. Common sense just doesn't exist in you if you think X1 might outsell the PS4 this month. If it didn't outsell last month with price drops and Titfanfall what makes you think it will outsell it this month??

NewMonday1198d ago

@GribbleGrunger

adjusted from fake numbers to another set of fake numbers, VGChartz never had market numbers and they still don't.

it's like a guy fumbling around his office desk to give the appearance of working.

next week NPD should out and the delusionals will go into hiding like they did last time.

Why o why1198d ago

Another george fail

The majority of ps fans continued to lament vg chartz even when it obviously posted the ps4 on top. Stop retconing. The narrative about this guesimating site hasn't changed. They're not credible or held accountable for re adjusting. Worthier sites have been banned from n4g yet vgc its still here. Fishy

choujij1197d ago (Edited 1197d ago )

Agreed. Last night at my local Walmart, I saw them replenishing stock of PS4s into the cabinet, while the same two Xbox One consoles from the previous week remained untouched. They always stock on Tuesdays and the Xboxes were in there from the day before (which means they wold have been put in no later than the previous Tuesday). However, I've gone in many times over the last several weeks, and they've always had the two since they sold the TF bundles a few weeks ago. So personally I think they haven't moved any in at least 2-3 weeks.

Even the clerk from my local computer store last week told me they've had the exact same Xbox One console on their shelf for weeks. She said they only had ordered the one, and while people ask about it, no one's bought it. Granted, it is a PC store, but she said they're selling PS4s quite well.

TitanFall is #1 and #2, I always laugh when ppl suggest TF is free, ya $500 free, lol

X1 is dropping the among least for home consoles in a sea of negatives

MysticStrummer1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

"X1 is dropping the among least for home consoles in a sea of negatives"

Except… that's not what those numbers say...

@disagrees - Really? lol What I see is that Wii dropped the least from last week and PS3 tied with XB1 for the 2nd lowest console drop off.

Maybe I'm just confused by Axios2's whole sentence...

Xavy1198d ago

You mean X1 is dropping in sales? Well then i agree with u.

Lightning Mr Bubbles1198d ago

It's neck and neck in the USA between XBOX One and PS4.

aceitman1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

last weeks numbers and the ones before where adjusted last weeks are on this link http://gamrconnect.vgchartz... , its been posting higher numbers for X1 and lower on ps4 , they had adjusted there ps4 & X1 numbers after NPD. and ps4 numbers have been posted as low as 20-40 THOUSAND less WW. so these numbers to me are just a figure and taken with some salt. but its the only thing we can kinda see until we get real numbers . and just like march vg charts had X1 winning every week in the usa by 15-60,000 and when NPD came out it was ps4 on top by 60,000.

Magicite1198d ago

funny that on amazon ps4 is always on top. while x1 is somewhere far down below, yet vgchartz say otherwise.

Gamer19821198d ago

What I don't get is VGcharts said Xbox outsold PS4 the week before too yet PS4 dropped less in sales percentage wise and basic maths tell me if PS4 dropped 10% and Xbox 6% then PS4 actually sold more last week. Than again i'm taking on the premise these are not fake numbers..

We go through this every time that these numbers aren't in stone...of course, but they are probably ONE of the best indicators that we have and IMO it's good to see that the week to week numbers are getting closer and that the growth rate is actually (slowly) bringing the total numbers closer together. We need the companies to be competitive people.

The more interesting numbers are actually in the games sales.

to corvusmd . I have a question for you. I joined the N4G community about 6 weeks ago. My question is, how come this article was posted to N4G ten minutes ago yet is says that you posted your comment 9hours ago,and a couple other comments was posted 7 to 9 hours ago? Do you people work for the N4G SITE or something? Also i agree with your comment "that the more interesting numbers are actually in the game sales" I said 6 months ago to my friend that the 2 big stories of 2014 are tracking the game sales of ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE and DESTINY , due to the fact that of lot money , time, work and effort is going to those 2 games! EDIT: okay i think i have the degree setting, set above 50 degrees (which is the default setting) so maybe that could be answer to my question? , but not sure?

If you look in the upper right corner, you will see a # next to your pic. That is articles waiting to be approved you can post on them. The article doesn't count as submitted till it gets approved. Lately its been taking a long time for VGchartz to get enough votes to be approved because most people know it is bs.

bleedsoe9mm1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

except we don't see the npd numbers saying one is outselling the other or a list of software sales without numbers is completely meaningless
