Quick, quick! Back-peddle some more on those X1 figures. Redact! Redact! Redact! I wish I had bookmarked that N4G reply for March and/or April that had their "estimates" off by over 100K for the X1 in the US.

This isn't even news, its about as credible as a frothing rant on Gamefaqs.
MysticStrummer  +   120d ago
"This isn't even news…"

It is labeled as a rumor, but it's definitely funny how consistently off vgchartz is. Last month's discrepancy was incredible. I always knew the numbers were estimates/guesses/wishful thinking but I never paid attention to how bad it was before.

…Yes… I, a PS fan, am dismissing vgchartz even when it has PS4 winning the week by a huge margin.

They really should title the article as the "Global Guess" as that is what they are really doing (hence the targets being well off)
FITgamer  +   120d ago
They just adjusted down Xbox One numbers for the past 6 weeks and the Xbox One are still overtracked by almost 40k in US.
MysticStrummer  +   120d ago
"They really should title the article as the "Global Guess" as that is what they are really doing"

No kidding. Guessing, and then going to the trouble of making a chart out of it. Maybe that's why it's "chartz" instead of "charts". A distorted knock off of reality, like buying a fake pair of Nikes.
mikeslemonade  +   120d ago
SMH -_- I never understood why PS4 fans still don't like vgchartz. Why would you care so much if PS4 is undertracked and X1 is overtracked.

The figures still tell basically the same story in that PS4 is on the verge of selling on a 2:1 ratio overall.

Why do you care?? Do you work for Sony and your job is on the line if you are not accurate within your quota??

As far as bragging rights PS4 wins despite the "handicaps" in favor of X1. Expect next week to be even lower because people will be waiting for the new X1 sku.

update: Look at the pathetic software sales for X1. When you sell less games than the WiiU lol..

@mikeslemonade these numbers are low and it was not stated that the x1 will come without Kinect heck the preorders aren't even on amazons top 100. and that's not a good sign even with preorders it should be on the top 100. and also why would they even need to announce it before e3 they lost more sales.
MysticStrummer  +   120d ago
@Lemonade - What makes less sense, someone recognizing the worthlessness of vgchartz numbers, or someone who cares whether somebody else likes or dislikes vgchartz?

Why do you care? Do you work for vgchartz and your job is on the line if you don't defend it with enough passion?

The disKinected One is already available for order on Amazon. It's not doing very well so far.
Eonjay  +   120d ago
At least give them credit for correcting the charts after the fact.

Why give someone credit for correcting sloppy work in the first place? First rule of credibility and integrity: put your best foot forward to begin with.

How is XO selling less software than the WiiU?
mikel1015  +   120d ago
Less consoles = less people to buy the games
KinjoTakemura  +   120d ago
The WiiU actually has been second in total sales, preceded by the PS4. Which means that Xbox one is number 3 on the hardware and software sales list.

@Homer - You're saying XB1 has passed WiiU in sales?
HomerDog  +   120d ago
no I'm saying I don't go based on fake numbers. or better yet I don't care about numbers
Godmars290  +   120d ago
@HomerDog:
Except that when VGcharts got things "wrong", it tended to be in favor of the Xbox brand which is why this comes off as being semi-surprising.

And I was going to say something about the XO selling better than the WiiU, but it apparently hasn't.

"better yet I don't care about numbers"

You do care. Your response to Kinjo pointing out that XB1 has sold less than WiiU proves that. It's a fact that you don't like much so you implied that only vgchartz is saying it.

Major_Glitch  +   120d ago
Yeah, I noticed that too. The Vita is selling more games than the bone. What makes it even sadder is that this is coming from vgchartz who we all know like to boost ms's numbers.
tokugawa  +   120d ago
careful i got banned for calling the xb1 the "bone" apparently it is trolling... well it is when i say it

useless, no good mods on this site

ArgumentumAdPopulum  +   120d ago
Fakechartz, It looks like they overtracked Xbox One sales again.
plasticidolatry  +   120d ago
PS4 hardware is still undertracked by about 200k. As of Apr 6 2014 Sony announced 7 mil. As of May 10 2014 they should be around 7.8 mil not 7.6 mil.

No comment on any other platform.
JMyers  +   120d ago
And believe it or not, that's the XBONE being over tracked

TheFallenAngel  +   120d ago
Yea they had the xbone outselling the ps4 for the whole month of April in the US.
JMyers  +   120d ago
Yeah and if you looked 2 weeks ago, they had the XBONE at 4.7 and the PS4 at 4.7... Now the XBONE has been lowered by 100k.

Watch MS buy another third party game and reverse something else and say... " we did for the gamers..."

It would be better if people would stop posting these VG Chartz every week.
AnteCash  +   120d ago
Apparently N4g and Vgcharts have some kind of deal going on so despite ppl reporting VG of posting fake numbers nothing is done about it.
heisenberguk  +   120d ago
Stop allowing them to be submitted!
Geobros  +   119d ago
I agree!! If someone does not like numbers he could easily stay out of all this. Its the only weekly source we have out of Japan, I will follow it...

@HomerDog - "Yea the only thing is vg charts are fake so move along"

VGCharts being fake has absolutely nothing to do with Xbox One being 3rd in total hardware and software sales.

PS4 7.4 to 7.9 Million units

WiiU 6.1 to 6.6 Million units

Xbox One 4.5 to 5 million units

The numbers are estimates but they are within the actual range. Now wipe away the tears because your beloved Xbox One is indeed in last place.

FITgamer  +   120d ago
Yes they did adjustments for the past 6 weeks. Xbox One numbers down by just over 100k.

vgcharts are fake least that whats you Sony fans say, whats different now?

I buy digital now i used to buy disks not anymore. Me and another guy share stuff, that way, saves me money.

I bought the titanfall dlc digitally and my friend just downloaded it digitally and never paid for it. Part of the home sharing with friends on live, its great, same for games.

I bet lot of x box users have gone digital.

FITgamer  +   120d ago
Same could be said about PS4 users, VGC software for PS4 is 3 million less than what Sony announced a month ago. You act like only Xbox gamers buy games digital.
Spotie  +   120d ago
Well, given how many games Sony gives away, and the capacity for a much bigger hard drive since launch, wouldn't it make sense that PS4 owners buy more digital than XB1 owners? PS Plus still counts as sales, I believe.

Vgchartz has been really fishy lately. When the Borderlands 2 Vita bundle launched, vgchartz reported 46k Borderlands 2 copies sold in the US. As only the bundle was released and not the physical game, they said the Vita sold 2.7k copies.

Nonsense.

Bathyj  +   120d ago
Stop whining about VGcharts guys.

I take it for what it is, a very rough guess. Every comment on here is complaining about them but you all clicked on the article and read the numbers.

If you truly don't care just keep scrolling when you see VGcharts.
Clarence  +   120d ago
Ouch! The xbone is really getting its tuckus handed to it. I think the price cut will only help in NA. M$ can chalk this gen up as a lost.

Plus we all know that the PS4 numbers are undertracked and the xbone numbers are over tracked. So it's actually worst than it looks for the xbone.

Titan ready for launch!
