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.

Concertoine1265d ago

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

FITgamer1265d 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.

AGaryColemanClone1265d ago (Edited 1265d 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.

georgeenoob1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

scott1821264d ago (Edited 1264d 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 :/.

morganfell1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

GribbleGrunger1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

AGaryColemanClone1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

GribbleGrunger1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

sckiptman1264d 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_Xainx1264d ago

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

mikeslemonade1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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??

NewMonday1264d 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 why1264d 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

choujij1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

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

MysticStrummer1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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...

Xavy1264d ago

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

Lightning Mr Bubbles1264d ago

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

aceitman1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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.

Magicite1264d ago

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

Gamer19821264d 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..

corvusmd1265d ago (Edited 1265d ago )

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.

bleedsoe9mm1264d ago (Edited 1264d 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

DefenderOfDoom21264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

reply to TFJWM / Thank you for answering my question. I will pay more attention to upper right corner from now on . CHEERS! I go to VG CHARTZ everyday first, so i did read the USA CHART numbers yesterday afternoon. I know the VG CHARTZ are not very accurate but it is better than just waiting for NPD numbers! to DJJUSTIN actually N4G is a part of VG CHARTZ and "GAMEREVIEW" if you go to the VG CHARTZ "home page". You will see a N4G section with about ten recent articles from N4G . I never go to "gamerReview" because their website chokes and freezes my PSthree ! It is terrible! But i go to N4G articles because their site works great with my PSthree . and VG CHARTZ site works great on my PSTHREE also! I have been reading N4G articles and comments for 4 years now thru the VG CHARTZ site on my PSthree , but since i joined N4G site 6 weeks ago, i now just go to N4G HOME PAGE on my crappy PC! thank you N4G community for entertaining me with your articles and comments for 4 years ! Coming to N4G is great way to wind down after a heavy gaming session! It is great to finally speak to everybody after 4 years of a one way conversation . CHEERS!! okay , i know this post was corny! but i am a "where my heart on my sleave kinda guy" okay just got more corny! so i will stop typing!

XiSasukeUchiha1265d ago

Hmm PS4 is still keeping it's lead over Xbone in States!

SpinalRemains1381264d ago

Which is pathetic considering that it is nearly impossible to find a PS4 in the store, whereas XOnes are saturating warehouses.

I don't even see how its possible, but no one is buying the new Xbox like they should. Its here and its in healthy supply. Go buy one!

xpressyoself1264d ago

Dude shut up ps4 is not sold out anymore. I can walk into any store and buy one easily

HacSawJimThugin1264d ago (Edited 1264d ago )

Nearly impossible eh? I went with a friend today to get a TitanFall bundle from GameStop, they didn't have it but the had plenty of regular XB1's plus PS4's. He ended up getting a TF bundle from Best Buy where the had plenty of both current gen systems in stock so yeah whatever.

Prime1571264d ago

I think it has something to do with the supply strategies. Every few weeks x1 catches up to the ps4, then suddenly ps4 gets a surge of a large supply.

This console generation is interesting

Lowsnamebrand1264d ago

PS4 seem to be in better supply now, but in my area near the end of the week stores are usual out of ps4s again waiting for the next shipment

AndrewLB1264d ago

They've been fully stocked at pretty much any Southern California store for weeks. Best Buy, Walmart, Fry's, Gamestop, Target, Costco, etc. There is NO shortage of PS4's here.

ghostface91264d ago

Hahaha good one I see the same amount of ps4 laying around as x1 at the gamestop and walmart I shop at so get that nonsense out of here

JeffGUNZ1264d ago

Give me a break. Ever since the end of January I have seen PS4's everywhere. The spring and summer months are the slow months for gaming and once the holiday demand ended, both consoles became readily available. Unless you live in a town of 10 people and they local store carries one a year, you can find any console very easily.

Once Xbox drops its price, which I think it'll knock it down $50 - $100 this E3 in America, those numbers will greatly increase. Most gamers don't come to these websites and make profiles to comment. Mainstream gamers care about the dollars and right now Xbox less appealing to average Joe at $499 when the PS4 is $399. If they drop the price to match Sony, numbers will obviously increase. I see Sony easily selling the most consoles world wide this generation, but MS will take over USA over the span of this generation.

Believe it or not, other than Titanfall and Infamous, their hasn't really been any real significant reasons to upgrade.

JMyers1264d ago

In your dream world maybe. If VG has the PS4 about 3 million ahead, you can expect the real numbers to be about 500k more on the PS4 side.
