3ds takes top spot while PS4 and WiiU tops Xboxone on global sales and Mariocart 8 keeps tops spot. 3DS 103,121 PS4 99,162 WiiU 68,499 XOne 64,525 PS3 50,100 X360 36,480 PSV 31,257 PSP 12,084 Wii 5,751
so X1 only sold 30,000 more from the week before with a cheaper model and I take it there the ones that wanted the kinectless x1.
It took removing Kinect to compete and still lose to the Wii U worldwide, nevermind the PS4.
The unit difference between Wii U and XB1 is about 4000. Not a huge number if you ask me. Isn't removing the Kinect exactly what people wanted though? I thought the Kinect, which we all know made the price higher, was a negative for the Xbox One. Of course it was going to sell more when they separated the two. Personally I'm just glad to see Wii U and XB1 making better numbers now, regardless of whether or not it's on par with PS4/3DS numbers.
God man, nothing gets you giddier than some of that Xbox One doom huh? That's literally almost all you've talked about since you joined. You'll even go off topic to spout some doom sometimes. Of course one could say that while the post-kinect drop sales are disappointing, its a refreshing thing to see all 3 consoles selling well after so much time with just PS4 selling well. But no, let's point out comparatively bad Xbone sales over anything else, point out that its selling a meager amount less than the Wii U which recently got its biggest exclusive until Smash Bros.
I'm here to talk about games and the industry in general, not what I feel about people who post here. "It took removing Kinect to compete and still lose to the Wii U worldwide, nevermind the PS4." How is that trashing the Xbox? I'm repeating the data. Didn't realise that was so wrong.
^Even if it means trashing on Xbox One when the numbers it's apparently making aren't even that terrible? I'm not planning to get an Xbox One soon either but I'm not just going to sit here and pretend like these numbers are horrible doom numbers. Both Xbox One and Wii U sold in one week more than Wii U in its entire first January. That to me is excellent news for both.
Im looking at your comment history, all you do is troll xbox articles and then, of all the positive things you could point out on this, you choose to spin good Xbone numbers as negative just because they didnt outsell PS4 and then try and defend yourself with circumstantial evidence (bringing up sales numbers from a month which had a price cut announcement for its majority). You're focusing on the negligible difference between it and a console that recently got its killer app, just because the latter has a reputation for bad sales. I'm not even a big Xbox person, and just my occasional casual stroll to the Xbone articles in the past few days almost always has you spewing some hate. To be honest, its hard to tell how Xbox One will sell in June since it only just resurfaced from a logically sales-crippling price cut announcement. I can guarrantee two things: A. It won't outsell PS4 and B. That's okay because it doesn't need to to be successful.
Guys, let's stay on topic here shall we? First off we all that these numbers are made up (fake). But we also know that these (fake)numbers normally favors the XBox One, based on VGC's track record. Now if what we're seeing is the "supposed" spike/boost from a cheaper XBox One sku, then there is only one thing going on at Microsoft's XBox Division right now..... this>>> https://www.youtube.com/wat...
oh boy, here we go
You can't say negative facts about the Xbox One; that's racist.
The Xbox1 has become a North American niche product...Not that there is anything wrong with that...
wait until xbox one comes out in Japan.. /s
Well randommass I am not going to sit here and pretend these numbers are even close to accurate. All you need do is look at the online sales being reported by companies and you will see things either unchanged or even worse for MS. But hewre is the littel Redmond marching boy that has been banned from every reputable gaming site on the internet for making up numbers and N4G turns a blind eue, holds out their hand and takes money from VGchartz, and they let him keep publishing these ridiculous stories here. It really says something when you have never ever been right about sales.
Xbox hasn't been realeased everywhere yet, so let's not all get our knickers in a knot.
Its good to see the wii-u getting some attention thanks to MK8. i mean it gets pretty tedious seeing the MS vs. Sony campaign signs all the time. MK8 shows that people need to put down those signs and pick up a controller for some kart racing fun.
And how many countries is the xbox one in? Enough said just think if the xbox one was in the same amount of countries as the ps4 that 4000 lead the ps4 has would be in xbox favor.
WiiU and X1 are selling poorly still when you consider the only major release was Watch Dogs for PS4. The less countries argument is weak. It won't make that much of a difference. PS4 will sell more alone in the country china to make up for that anyway. And the X1 camp excuses are as lame as the WiiU camp. First the X1 was suppose to win the US alone, then it was suppose to be Titanfall, then the Titanfall bundle, then X1 was suppose to sell as much as the PS4 with the same price. This is a one console race this generation. Give it up already.
These numbers are for reference only, but this trend might continue for a while.
Why would you reference made up figures? I have no doubt that the PS4 is still far in the lead when it comes to home consoles, we see evidence of that all the time, but given VGChartz spotty (and that's putting it mildly) history, when would you ever reference them outside of "Here's an example of a site fabricating stats that's often used by people who don't know any better"?
PS4 RETURN OF THE KING! #NOTHINGSTOPSTHISTRAIN
Ummm, wasn't it just overtaken by the 3DS again?
Remains to be seen if MS can continue to sell as many as this but if an extra 30k becomes the baseline thats an extra 1.5 mil a year which is good news for xbox. Sure they are still behind ps4 but selling an extra 1.5mil a year cant really be classed as bad news.
Waaay back when Wii U was new, I remember how big it was that only sold 55k units or something small like that in all of its first January. Looks like Wii U is making healthier numbers this month. Good for Nintendo! In fact, good for everyone! It's great to see 3DS, PS4, Wii U and even Xbox One all now competing with each other and outselling their previous generation counterparts.
The Xbox One sold less last month than the Xbox 360 ever did in it's first year according to NDP data, at 77,000 units sold. http://www.gameranx.com/upd... You can stop pretending its doing so well, it's not, it got outsold by the Wii U. Which everyone when it's comes to units sold, would consider it a failure, probably even Nintendo themselves. The Xbox barely outsold the Wii U in North America last month. PS4 (197,000) 3DS (97,000) Xbox One (77,000) Wii U (61,000) Xbox 360 (57,000) PlayStation Vita (56,000) PS3 (36,000) Wii (11,000)
You realize MS announced a 100 dollar price cut with the new SKU a little over a week into May? I doubt it would've made a PS4-beating difference or even close to one, but something tells me that had a factor in sales for the majority of May. And you speak as if because the Wii U is an overrall failure in hardware sales, that no matter what number it makes its still selling bad. The past few weeks its been selling pretty good, hell one week it almost outsold PS4. The Xbox One loses a few weeks after juggernaut MK8 releases and you automatically act like this is routine. 60k+ is great for both systems.
It got outsold by Wii U by a meager 4k units. These sales are in one week, right? I never expected Xbox One to start selling more than PS4, but this is not what I would have to consider terrible for a single week. A single month, maybe, but this is good for a single week all around. I don't see what reason there is to be so cynical when it looks like all the current generation systems save for Vita seem to stand to sell at least decently this month.
Wow that Kinectless SKU is just stomping the PS4, Sony must be quaking right about now /s Off Topic: Anyone else getting emails from IGN that are heavily advertising the XB1? Geez the XB1 is a miracle to still he losing with all the retailers and sited pushing the system this much, it's a good thing gamers don't lap up everything.....most of us at least.
Maybe if M$ put that billion into making Xbone have better hardware for cheap and not a marketing campaign it wouldn't be in this situation of having tons of ads that don't result in sales.
Lol that PS4 Domination!
How do you dominate in second place?
What? The PS4 sold over 8 million units. Its ahead of both the Xbox One and the Wii U. Don't tell me your so hurt by the Wii Us sales that your comparing the PS4 to a handheld? Seriously your comparing the 3DS to the PS4 right? A handheld to a console? Do you have any idea what your doing? Your saying that handhelds = consoles. It isn't true since they appeal to two different markets. Next time compare the PS4 to other consoles like the Xbox One and the Wii U.
Don't be so desperate. There's a competition between handhelds, and one among home consoles. You don't get to mix the two whenever you feel like it.
So X1 has 65% of PS4 sales even though the X1 is in less than 20% of PS4's Countries, well done
The spin is real
http://static.gamespot.com/... Note to MS : Please release XB1 in every country where PS4 is available. I beg you.
So you gripe about 20% less countries even though 75% of all Xbone sales come from only 2 countries anyway? Statistics are fun. Besides, whose fault is that? You act like its anyones but Microsofts. Get your manufacturing together MS. Your fanboys seem to think it matters.
I love calculators. France, Germany and the UK represent 67% of PS4's European total this week. Leaving only 33% for other countries. So 25k is 67% of 37k. The Xbox one is also selling in those countries. So lets theoretical say that those were the only countries released in Europe and therefore was missing 33% of potential sales in those other countries. Well then the math is easy. (potential sales)×.67=13k or 13k/.67= potential sales. So if the distribution of demand is similar to PS4 you are looking at 19k/week for all of Europe. Of course the Xbox One is in more European countries than those 3 so just shave some off this number. The calculation you did doesnt take into account the fact that demand for consoles differs by country. You are just setting yourself up for disappointment. Expect to see a boost but if you want to do a meaningful calculation...
This comment was awesome lol. Ppl don't think about math because numbers don't lie. Like sales numbers, fps numbers, resolution numbers.... Etc. lol On topic: let's all take remember that vgsharts is guesstimating for entertainment purposes. I honestly thought they would track xbone about 20k over PS4 due to price cut. I personally don't know anyone who was waiting to get a $400 xbone, but I know a couple guys who were very pissed they bought their xbones at $500 when they didn't want kinect at all.
The Ps4 is outselling the Xbone in very country they are both sold in. Even in the xbone strongholds of the USA and UK. If this keeps up the xbone will sell half of what the Ps4 does at the end of this generation.
Good point. Why would Xbox fanboys want it to lose in 30 countries when they can just be satisfied its only losing in 13?
that's microsofts choice to not release in those countries so yeah just stop
at least it was close to the ps4 in NA right? back to killzone
Nintendo is doomed, oh wait.
Good to see all consoles selling well. Alot of immature people in this site need to get it through their heads that competition is good for us gamers.
I would rather any other company be competition than MS tho could be nintendo, sega, amazon, steam, my mum, I dont give a damn , yeh competition is good but when the company is trash and does what MS tried to do then no its not good. I guess it doesnt matter at the moment tho because the PS4 has no competition.
"PS4 has no competition" Watch_Dogs PS4 sales: Roughly 1.9 mil Mario Kart 8 sales: roughly 1.55 mil and sold more this week than Watch_Dogs No competition... Sure. Good luck with that theory.
So if WiiU were to sell that every week, theyd make about 4 mil in the year which is way over their projection and this doesnt take into account Bayonetta and Smash moving more units or Black Friday/holiday season shifting more units. I know there is still some hype around MK8 and a strong e3 but this is great news for Nintendo. Actually a fairly decent showing from all 3. If only we could trust VGchartz.
The thing is 4 million is not a great number even if it is past expectations. Im sure they'll break 3.6 mil (their estimate) but that still puts it behind the gamecube LTD.
This is true, although 2015 looks to have another stellar line up and Scott Moffit is spot on when he used the phrase "tipping point" in a recent interview. A lot of people I know keep saying things like "yeah but I wouldnt spend £200 on a console just for Mario Kart" at which point I reply what about Mario 3d world and NSMBU, Pikmin, wind waker, lego city, Wonderful 101, Donkey Kong, ZombiU? Wii Sports online is even fun. Anyway back on topic, it looks likely Nintendo will beat their conservative sales target for this year, which means a return to profit and probably a higher sales target for next year. ATM I reckon Gamecube numbers would be an overall gen aim for Nintendo and wouldnt be a complete disaster, then in next ge they need to compete on power or they will lose again, actually engage 3rd partys in the hardware development.
You need to understand: Lesser sales =/= Lesser profits Gamecube was sold at a loss for most of it's life. It was the software attachment rates that made Gamecube profitable. Now we're seeing greater software attachment rates AND the Wii U is being sold at a profit. So if they exceed those expectations. They are basically swimming in money.
The Xbox One is about where it should be for being in 13 of its biggest regions. The Wii U is holding higher sales thanks to Mario Kart 8 release. It will be interesting how many Wii Us are moved by Smash Bros. I also wonder how much launching in more regions plus the release Halo MC:Collection will affect XB1 sales.
I would expect a front loaded launch and the weekly average sales to be around 65k until the holiday when they would go up.
You say anything postive Wii U or XB1 you get disagrees. You say negative things about wii u or xbox one sales and get agrees. Ride Sony bandwagon get agrees. I see how the system works.
No. You're going to get disagrees, no matter what your opinion is. You get MORE disagrees if you're really stupid though.
One 3DS game is shown at E3 and it's dominating the charts.
Tbh they showed 3 3ds games. S.T.E.A.M pokemon and smash bros.
Both next gen consoles are same price now but this time around people are buying the better console with the better specs and games. Way to go Sony for showing us that you still the best at making consoles. MS truly lost touch with the gamers. XB1 future don't look so bright. This could very well be MS last console and I don't have a problem with that.
Nowayout and sony's future looks better does it. If they keep losing money like the have been this could be sony's last console too. I suppose you don't have a problem with that as well. Anyone wanting ANY company to go under is a fool. I just think of the poor families when a company goes bust. Some really heartless fools on this site.
Sony have been "nearly" bankrupt for years and years , lets not pretend its gonna happen any time soon, the ps4 is making them money, if they lose too much money they will drop other things and keep the console going.
Not happy at all by the PS4 numbers _-_ Sup 100k is not good
im assuming pre orders dont count. ive checked amazon and gamestop a few times a week since the white ps4 was announced and the thing hasnt budged from 1st
Some of you guys really need to pull your fangs out of Xbox One's neck for a change. You act like you want to see them suffer the worse fate possible, but what you fail to realise is if Xbox One were to fail it would be disastrous for the gaming industry in the future and would also hurt Sony and Nintendo both. Even though the companies are rivals even they understand they need each other to an extent. Yeah Microsoft made a lot of mistakes early on and a lot of it was just do to poor leadership. But I think everything in life is deserving of at least a second chance, and lately under Spencer Xbox One has really been trying to change despite their reasoning. So give credit where its do and also on topic Xbox One sales aren't even bad. They may not be as good as Ps4 or even Wii U but at least it's selling. Im kinda starting to dislike VG Chartz not that its a bad site but I notice it's become one of the go-to catalysts for fanboys to fuel their hate.
i may get a ton of disagrees, but if Xbox One failed, it wouldn't matter this gen really. PS4 is stealing its thunder anyway, and Nintendo is being the japanese otaku console that i love. The Xbox One just does not have a place this gen it seems. even the graphic whores will choose PS4 over it, the dude bros will pick ps4 over it, the rpg fans will choose either 3ds or wii u, the the fans of quirky or unique games will pick wii u, the social gamers will choose ps4 (share button). Its just a tough battle for Xbox One.
Honest opinion, aint nothing wrong with that.
@ Concertoine " To be honest, its hard to tell how Xbox One will sell in June since it only just resurfaced from a logically sales-crippling price cut announcement. I can guarrantee two things: A. It won't outsell PS4 and B. That's okay because it doesn't need to to be successful " Yeaaaa, I'm thinking MS didn't have that in mind when the poured millions if not a couple billion into developing, producing and marketing the X1. Naaah they had their crosshairs dead set on 3rd place sales for June 2014.
Yet another VaGue chart that's been allowed to be submitted!!
Lol they lowered ps4 global sales again. It was 8.2 million like a month ago and now is 8.1 million.
Well that is disappointing sales for the new SKU, seeing as how VGChartz usually undertracks PS4 and overtracks X1 it may be a larger gap. I think it is becoming clear that the xbox brand was largly damaged by their original vision before their backtracks. Best thing MS and Spencer can do is continue to win back their fans this gen and then come out strong next gen. It's still early but being 4 million behind already does not look good seeing as MS had a nearly 9 million lead before PS3 launched but lost that lead in worldwide sales and was pasted.
Total World DAAMINATION. A little fight from Xbox could actually be good for PS4, as the latter looses some sales and thanks to that is able to supply the regions that they've failed to properly stock since launch.
