PS4 is still leading all over the world even after the price cut lol

NextLevel1248d ago

It's hilarious people actually thought the Xbox One was going to outsell the PS4.

Malphite1248d ago

I wouldn't call it hilarious. It's not like it would've taken much more for XOne to outsell the PS4 this week especially in the US (according to vgchartz).

NextLevel1248d ago

I'm more surprised it was as close as it was, both UK and US.

Darkstares1248d ago

What's really hilarious to the point of disturbing are the people who create new accounts solely for the purpose of trying to annoy a certain fanbase.

The truth is after all the negativity the X1 got since it's debut and high price who actually thought it would outsell the PS4? What is interesting however is how much has changed since that time with the direction the X1 has taken. But what hasn't changed over that period and is unlikely to change are those who go on forums to be as negative as possible.

Eonjay1248d ago

Actually I kinda did. See, we are on forums with militant fans, but in the real world people are buying what they want. At least there is more parity between sales now. Lets see if this lasts.

amiga-man1248d ago

VGA chartz numbers should always be taken with a huge pinch of salt, who knows what the numbers really are but VGA chartz is the last place I would be looking.

SniperControl1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

Don't we also have to take into account that vgchartz are known to overtrack X1 numbers and under-track PS4 numbers?

Holy crap, on a global level PS4 sold 110,000 why the X1 managed just 38,000,(PS3 actually sold morewith 47,000[week ending 7th June])

bouzebbal1248d ago

wait until Titanfall comes out
==> PS4 still leads

wait until kinectless
==> PS4 still leads

looking forward to what's next from xbox fanboys.

Sincere01211248d ago

It's hilarious how much sado's care about sales of a console. Your not receiving any profits made from any console.

Smh fanboys need to get a life.

system221248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

What's hilarious is the price drop has only been available to purchase since the 9th of june and these numbers are week ending the 14th. sales are almost at parity in that time. Let's see how this plays out with a full month.

Mr Pumblechook1248d ago

These VGChartz figures are BS guesses. I know someone who works in the largest GAME store in London. He said when the new SKU was announced there was a high amount of pre-orders but not enough to be a see-change and tracking for his store has Xbone selling 50% of PS4 and this is with the price cut.

aceitman1248d ago

and in Europe there is no contest ps4 is more than doubled the x1 with x1 selling 15,000

XiYakushijuAkeginuXi1248d ago

Seriously? Why the hell isn't VGChartz banned already?

Ghost_of_Tsushima1248d ago

They're not banned because they don't put Xbox One ahead sorry.

MRMagoo1231248d ago

@the_infectard

If you actually looked at comments on these articles you would see it is mostly sony fans trying to ban the site , I know I always down vote the site everytime they put one up and so do most of the sensible sony fans, so dont try to pretend its only here because MS cant beat Sony. Yet if the xbone was ahead we would still say ban this site and I guess you would say its because we want to hide the fact the ps4 is losing right.

Eonjay1248d ago

Have you contemplated the possibility that N4G and VGChartzs are partners. Or do you think the N4G widget at the bottom of the page is there by accident.

SilentNegotiator1248d ago

Because this is the closest that we get to getting sales numbers, especially WW numbers, on a frequent basis. It's far from perfect, but until NPD reports accurate WW figures or someone else comes along with more accurate, frequent numbers, this is all we've got.

Gunstar751248d ago

What price cut? They released a new sku. This isn't a price cut.

CaptainObvious8781248d ago

Remember it's vgcharts, so take it with a healthy amount of salt.

But we do know vg likes to over track ms consoles and under track sony console and this week in light of the price drop would have been a perfect opportunity to skew the numbers.

If the PS4 is still winning according to vgcharts then that's very interesting indeed.

shinrock1247d ago

Why do they over track MS, and under track ps? I keep seeing this comment but no1 elaborates.

corvusmd1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

Uh, these numbers don't add up at all, both consoles sold more copies of just Watch Dogs than these numbers posted here. Considering the gap in consoles sold, the numbers of game sold is tiny. This is of course all rumor though being as it's VGChartz

Side note: why does anyone get joy out of the idea of a console failing? That doesn't sound like something a gamer would say. Although I do love how we are constantly reminded that these numbers are rumors and wrong....until it lets someone talk trash.

@Aceitman...you do realize that X1 is in less European countries right? Not saying that that would double X1 sales, but still you're right it's no contest...because it's not a fair comparison.

aceitman1248d ago

so what can be said about usa.

XiYakushijuAkeginuXi1248d ago

@corvusmd

Which is why this site needs to be banned. I am tired of looking at false data from them. WTH is even the point of looking at their data when they are always inaccurate. I could probably "guess" my own numbers and sometimes have a better prediction than VGChartz.

Nitrowolf21248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

", both consoles sold more copies of just Watch Dogs than these numbers posted here"

Uh dude, you think everybody who bought a PS4/Xbox One this week went out to buy Watch Dogs as well? These numbers don't add-up TO YOU because you are relating the two separate sales figure as if they should be near identical, when there are also existing owners buying the game

jnemesh1248d ago

Why? Because Microsoft is bad for gamers. They released a BAD CONSOLE with a FLAWED "vision", and are now furiously trying to backtrack...but they still have an underpowered, overpriced console! Buying exclusive titles, insulting and LYING to their customers, polarizing fans....Microsoft is about as good for gamers as the Kinect is for playing games.

Chevalier1247d ago

@CorvusMD

You seriously think less European countries is MS problem? Europe has always been dominated by PlayStation. 2/3 of sales last gen were from U.K. and U.S. alone. The rest of the world only accounted for 1/3 of their sales.

http://arstechnica.com/gami...

Also last gen their were only U.S., U.K. and Australia where MS beat PlayStation sales. They're losing all these currently. In fact they're losing in every country. So yeah if they can't win a single country then how will they catch up by increasing countries? They're just going to lose those countries as well.

Axios21248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

TitanFall still in the top ten after all this time

and less than 10% difference in sales now that the price is the same

dantesparda1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

Oh look its Axios STILL talking about TF's sales. Obsessed much? And you do know that this is just a sales spike for the X1's new price, and will only go down from here right?

And p.s. this is VGC, oh you know the site with the made up numbers that's constantly proved wrong by NPD. Have fun with that.

gamer11381248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

Overall sales data is useless because people can exchange their consoles and buy used consoles which aren't tracked here. It's units sold, not units actively in use.

I'm from the UK and people have been switching between the two consoles like crazy. I personally know well over a dozen people who have traded their X1 for a PS4 or the other way around. GAME, the uk's specialist retailer, has been selling used xbox ones for £299. At that price they sell like crazy but aren't reported here. Places like CEX, a 2nd hand electronics shop, their stores are sat on loads of traded in PS4's because they bought them at a high price and now do not want to sell them at a loss.

Worse still, others have been going out buying used xbox 360's because they don't want to play their PS4's that they got for christmas! I honestly could not believe it when I hard people talking about this but it is happening!

@Gamer1138

"GAME, the uk's specialist retailer, has been selling used xbox ones for £299. At that price they sell like crazy but aren't reported here."

If you bought an XBox One, and sold that same XBox One to your friend, that doesn't mean that 2 consoles were sold. It's just the SAME XBox One exchanging hands.

So there is no reason why used XBox Ones/PS4s should be accounted for. It's the same argument people had with the RROD and the XBox 360s, but inversed. Where multiple XBox 360s were being sold to the same number of consumers, hence why many believe that the install base for the 360 is very inflated.

Put it this way, if Toyota sold a single person 10 cars, and Honda sells 10 people one car each, more people have bought Hondas than Toyotas.

On Topic: Enjoy these made up numbers from VG Chartz in the meantime.

And while we're at it, people need to remember that these (fake) numbers represents a SPIKE for XBox One. So things, can only get worse from this point on.

bluzone1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

@gamer1138 Of course it's not tracked. It's not adding any new consoles to the count. It's just moving them to new owners. They are used at that point.

Goku7811248d ago

The power of Playstation compels the world despite Xbox One price drop bundle and advertisements everywhere. It will not be denied!

N4g_null1247d ago

Come on the power? Really? This is not a sport.
