PS4 still got the UK which is still good for competition:)

Aren't we supposed to see bumps in the X1 sales ? After the price cut ?
ThinkThink  +   163d ago
Yes and we have. This is the difference of 738 units. The gap appears to be closing on the weekly front. Doesn't mean it will close the TOTAL.

PS4 wins still in the UK, thats crazy considering.

X360 8,882,367
PS3 5,910,740

What's not crazy is the fact that since VGCHartz shows PS4 leading X1 in the UK by less than 1,000 ..YOU posted it...and now all the sudden the typical Sony trolls are completely willing to put these numbers in stone. How are your Sony shares doing?

@johndoe the -% just means compared to last week.

@Axios yeah it is good to see Titanfall STILL doing really well all over the world despite how often people keep trying to say that it's dead.

The FACT the PS4 is leading always in 2 places (US & UK) is crazy. The Xbox 360 absolutely dominated the PS3 in both regions. I don't expect you to understand, you have a hard time differentiating over simple things like resolution and tiers.

What does the Sony shares have to do with PS4 numbers? Do any of the PS guys on here bring up Microsofts failures in their other divisions? Like the Zune, or Surface? Why are you guys defending a GIANT corporation? This is Playstation and Xbox, not Sony and MS. "Argh.. the PS4 is doing well! Let me bash Sony then, Yeah!"

Do you guys realize how it looks like when you guys bring up something that has nothing to do with the topic? It's like some Sony fanboy going to a positive X-1 article and commenting "Windows 8 sucks!"

Why such childish behavior? It's just numbers and TBH those numbers, both PS4 & X1, aren't that impressive. If you're gonna defend anybody, defend the game Devs/Creators not these Large Corporations.

Its not Sony trolls.

What you're not being honest about is the fact that this guy and his website's sole purpose is for sales propaganda. That being to cook the MS numbers and ignore a large portion of PS numbers.

So if the sales are so astounding that THIS guy's site can't show Xbox leading, then bet your bottom dollar the gap is at least twice what he is showing!

So are these numbers in stone? Hell no. They're actually much higher.

At least Sony's CEO is committed to Playstation unlike XBOX
Chevalier  +   163d ago

Just like you own shares in Microsoft right? Losing by a smaller margin is still losing. But yeah your on this 13 vs. 72 country thing as well. But conveniently forget that Sony launched with 1 million sales with only 2 countries (U.S./Canada) whereas MS only got 1 million because it launched in 13 countries simultaneously. Your one of the most illogical and hypocritical fanboy here, so it's hilarious that your going to call the kettle black.

TitanFall still at #6 after all this time.

@ CernaML, if that's the case, where is ISS?

You have a very very very very seriously disturbing infatuation with titanfall. You need to get that checked.

Does anyone still plays that ? Seriously ?

Well, I mean...

What else are you gonna play?


I've had an XBO for almost two months and that's still the only game I have...

Considering there hasnt been any X1 exclusives since its release....
CernaML  +   161d ago
Second son is with the TWO other exclusive games it released with on the PS4.
johndoe11211  +   163d ago
Ok, I am completely mindscrewed by that website. Can someone who has some level of expertise in this area please explain to me how the hell it is that every single week the ps4 has a negative percentage and the xbox one has either a positive or much lower negative percentage and yet the sales gap is increasing??????

Now, don't just tell me that it's vgchartz and they just pull figures out of their a-holes to make xbox look better because I know this already. What I want to know, is it that there is no one in that organization that can tell them that the maths just doesn't add up or is it that even though it's made up figures I don't understand how they do their calculations?

I absolutely refuse to think that they are all uneducated fools on that website to not know that that does not make sense. I will quicker believe that I don't understand how it works. Could someone please explain it all to me. Is that even possible? I am seriously lost.

I totally agree with u johndoe11211 , and it looks like the X1 climbs the 100,000 mark faster than the ps4 lately on totals , sony has stated the hit the 9million mark and no adjustment where made , but they made a 1.5 million adjustment on the 360 when ms said the 360 hit 83,million but it was not clear from ms if it was sold to retail or consumer. but yet they lowered the ps4 totals and raised the X1 smh , something fishy going on , now I look at there chart totals like ok X1 NUMBERS LOWER AND PS4 HIGHER i don't trust there numbers .
Tony-A  +   163d ago
The most baffling thing to me is - what is the point of doing that?

Even if they put the XBO at 30 million and PS4 at 2,000, that does nothing for the industry. Literally everyone who keeps tabs on this industry knows how ridiculous this site is with numbers. Its a laughing stock. Why does that guys waste his energy?
jackanderson1985  +   163d ago
in the last 9 weeks the xbox has been ahead of the ps 4 times (just UK based)...also a 1k increase in xbox sales would have a higher impact than a 1k increase in PS sales as the PS has a higher number ( simple example but a 1 increase on 2 is a 50% increase, while a 1 increase on 3 is a 33% increase... both increase by 1 but the first one looks better percentage wise)

But it's not just a UK chart trend. And no matter what the numbers, the +/- always favors the XB1.


There's a problem with that.

Really enjoying Sniper Elite. Much better than the 2nd game (which I also enjoyed) for the simple fact the levels are alot bigger and wider, not funneled paths, and while SEV2 let you sneak around alot, as soon as you actually shot someone that was pretty much all over and anyone within range would just rush you.

The sound cover lets you pick guys off, working at the edges and trying to get them in places they wont be discovered. Its very satisfying to clear and area and no one ever knew you were there or even found a body.
SpinalRemains138  +   162d ago

Much much more cerebral and satisfying rather than mindlessly running and gunning with ADD like COD.

COD spawned the belief that running around with a rifle is normal because "camping" is bad. A snipers job is to camp ffs.

Its an excellent game and now that the multiplayer is patched its worth the price.
