Nice one 3DS + PS4 still leading the way :)

BiggerBoss1144d ago

Ps4 selling more than Xbox One, Wii U, and PS3 COMBINED. That's just crazy. Good for Sony.

chrismichaels041144d ago

PS4 is off to an incredible first year. Congrats to Sony.

amiga-man1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

When even the biased Vgchartz (can't even accept official Sony numbers) has the PS4 leading 3:1 you know PS4 domination is real.

jjonez181144d ago

PS4 is selling more consoles in US than either XB1 or Wii U are WW. It's also holding well over a 60% market share for 2014 and 45% LTD. Much better than even Sony could have predicted.

Illusive_Man1144d ago

Im really starting to wonder why considering the quality of the current PS4 library.

ErcsYou1144d ago

@ Illusive_Man.. If you consider the quality of the competition it's a easy choice.. Everybody wants 1080p.

choujij1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

+ what ErcsYou said. So now you can stop wondering.

gootimes1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

^
wow.

That list is insane, PS4 dominating in all categories with games (AAA retail, digital, PS+ vs gold, highest rated)... And people STILL bring up the games argument against it.

Automatic791144d ago

@Biggerboss PS4 in a 100 territories worldwide of course its going to sell more captain obvious. Lol

BiggerBoss1144d ago

@michaellito. Did my comment upset you somehow? Lol.

Does the fact that Ps4 is selling in 100 countries change the fact that it's outselling Xbox one, Wii u, and ps3 combined? Does it make my statement any less true? Oh it doesn't? Okay that's what I thought.

chrismichaels041144d ago

@gootimes - it amazes me as well how some people like to use the "PS4 has no games excuse". It's almost as bad as the "PS4 is in 100 countries" excuse...even though both consoles are already available in all the major markets like US and UK which make up the majority of both PS4 and Xone sales (and PS4 continues to already outsell the competition in those markets).

MysticStrummer1144d ago

@Lito - Did you miss the part where PS4 is outselling XB1 in every market both are in? Those numbers make it obvious why MS didn't release their console in more places. That was their choice you know, and the reason they made it is clear. Has "XB would be losing by less if it was in more markets" really become the XB fan's rallying cry? Judging by guys like you and Axios it has.

@Illusive_Man - I'm really starting to wonder if you know the difference between an opinion and a fact.

whoa, x1:ps4 = 1:3.
September gonna be phun!

CARROT1809941144d ago

These next four months are going to be crucial for both consoles and thieir public perception going forward into the generation.

CertifiedGamer1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

Not to offend you and I am not an X1 fan but math is math but the PS4 10.1 million vs. X1 5.1 million is not 3:1 its 2:1. if you calculate it from the millions then you would know that. PS4 would need 15 million for it to be 3:1 but I don't doubt that it will happen because at current rate by march 2015 PS4 will have 21 million and X1 will have sold 7 million at that time it will be 3:1. Don't try to misinform the N4G comunity like if we don't go or never went to school.

CertifiedGamer1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

Sorry dmitrijs88 I didn't know you were talking about weekly sales in that case your correct in the week PS4 outsold X1 3:1 but in total sales PS4 leads 2.1:1 if at the current rate PS4 will have 13+ million units sold by November and X1 will have 6.2 million by november but the difference is that PS4 will likely boost sales at a higher rate than X1 will in Holidays so by the end of the 2014 we should see PS4 have 18 million sold while X1 will have 6.7-6.75 million shipped.

DarkOcelet1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

Not sure if the Ps4 is selling really well or the Xbox is selling really low , i mean either they are selling low or 50k is the norm and Ps4 is above the norm . Either way , Ps4 is not stopping anytime soon and Destiny will boost at least 1 million more .

jjonez181144d ago

PS4 is selling well.
XB1 and Wii U are below average for new consoles.
So it's a mix of both. Ps4 is selling so well it makes wiiu/xb1 look weak. Or wiiu/xb1 are so flat that the ps4 looks like a juggernaut in comparison.

Gamble201144d ago

Keep in mind that while VG Charts has tracked XB1 sales with relative accuracy, they have been very far off on PS4. They recently made a correction, but when Sony announced they had sold 10 million consoles VG said that it was 9.4 million. Sony averages around a million consoles per month, and yet even using this weeks corrected numbers multiplied for the whole month you aren't even at 700k.

So basically, this gap might even be larger than this!

DefenderOfDoom21144d ago

The new MADDEN 15, boosted sales for the PS4 in NORTH AMERICA.

gootimes1144d ago

I hope the Vita picks things up, such a cool little system.

5eriously1144d ago

LOL at the Sad Sack trolls downvoting comments about these results. Must be all they can still do as their arguments all fell flat and there is nothing more they can say to use as an excuse anymore..false hope is all they have left.

Wow, has a Xbox one owner, 3:1 thats impresive for the ps4, nice for Sony

brish1144d ago

Half-Life 3 confirmed! ;-)

ShowGun9011144d ago

the x1 didn't even sell 2X the sales of the 360... i hope their new countries they're launching in help them out, along with MCC. (although i think MCC will do FAR more than all those countries combined... theres a reason M$ skipped them...)

oSHINSAo1144d ago

wow, you have been follow me, i have a new fan :)

MSBAUSTX1144d ago

XB1 sales increased? The only game coming out soon is Master Chief Collection and then Destiny. But those are both in November right? I wonder why it had an 11% rise in sales. Wii U is still selling steady though. It dropped a little but still over 50K a week. That will go up in the coming weeks because of Hyrule warriors. PS4 and 3DS are killing it though.

kneon1144d ago

I don't think you need any particular cause for an 11% week to week change, the numbers go up and down every week. If it were something like 30%+ then I'd be wondering what happened.

BiggerBoss1144d ago

Destiny releases in less than two weeks, where did you get November from?

jjonez181144d ago

X1 has a Madden bundle. But that will be tracked in next week's numbers. Also SSO launches in October. And FH2 is in November? Sales should slowly rise for X1 as we get closer and closer to the holidays, so random +%'s should become common.

ABizzel11144d ago

@MSBAUSTX

August = Metro Redux
September = Destiny & WW launch
October = Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, and 3rd party cram
November = Halo: MCC, COD: AW, 3rd party cram, Black Friday Shopping
December = Holiday Shopping

These next 4 months are really important for MS. If their sales don't increase they're going to be forced to make another drastic decision, and at this point it's going to be a real price cut. $349 seems like the most obvious, but I think they'll need an even greater one like $299 - $329 if they don't double their current numbers over the next several months.

I don't think they'll have a problem getting their numbers up. Destiny and the WW launch in September should get their numbers up. The rush of games between October and November should keep them up. And the holiday sales inflation should keep them up for the rest of the year.

January will be do or die for them.

Drekken1144d ago

I think Diablo has way more impact than Metro Redux in August yet everyone seems to forget it came out. Best dungeon crawler out there, best couch coop, awesome online coop, and you can still play solo if you want.

You are right though. These next few months will be important for the Xbox. I really don't think Destiny will do much for them. October is the month it could possibly beat the PS4 in NA. I don't see it happening though. Ps4 has way too much momentum and Drive Club is coming. That game is looking great lately.

MSBAUSTX1144d ago

I dont think i realized that many games were coming out for it in the next month or so. Makes more sense now

sd111143d ago

I have to agree. It will be interesting to see what happens to the console over the next few months. They should temporarily take the lead with sales in September, even if only for 1-2 weeks. If this doesn't happen after the world wide launch then I see some trouble ahead.Plus it will be interesting to see what Halo and Sunset do for sales. Will the 360 hold outs jump on board after Halo MCC is released? Time will tell.

SoapShoes1144d ago

It wouldn't be VGChartz if they didn't add a + next to X1 for no reason.

Arkardo1144d ago

Hahahahaha that made me laugh, that was I was thinking about everytime I see these charts

sd111143d ago

No exclusives have been released for a few months, but gamescom has just finished, so an increase would be expected. Also Diablo has just released on both PS4 and X-1. Destiny comes out in September, not November. Plus Dance central in a few days, Forza Horizon September, Sunset Overdrive and Fantasia Oct followed by Shape up and Halo MCC November (plus Ori and other TBA). Obviously this list is not complete, just pointing out that there are more than 2 games coming out soon. Sales will increase for the X-1, as they should, its a great console despite the criticism. Plus yes I own a PS4 ( and an X-1), not trying to be a fanboy with this comment.

zsquaresoff1144d ago

The real question is, considering the slide the xbone is in, will even Halo be able to save it from sliding further?

bouzebbal1144d ago

Destiny is on the way, then DriveClub and LBP3.. PS4 isn't slowing down anytime soon.
february The Order and followed by Bloodborne!Killer

sd111143d ago

When did people buy a console for LBP? I think 2015 will be the bigger year for the PS4. My personal feelings are that the rest of 2014 is pretty meh regarding exclusives, but it isnt a problem as September-October is already amazing with 3rd party games. Having said that I dislike driving games so Driveclub will be good for all those starved of a decent racing game. I am very much looking forward to The Order, and Bloodborne in 2015 though.

Gamble201144d ago

Consumers just don't seem to want the Xbox One more than the PS4. Most core gamers know what they are passing on (a future Halo) when they decide to get a PS4, and let's be honest as great as Halo might be it is still past the point of being the generation defining game it was during the original Xbox era. Will it be a big software seller? Absolutely. But it won't redefine the genre or anything. It's just going to be another great Halo game. And one great game just isn't enough to surpass the hole that Microsoft has found themselves in. I am not sure even a steady stream of great games would be enough. Microsoft needs multiple generation defining exclusives on the scale of a Destiny type game in order to climb out of this, in my opinion. And they clearly lack the First party support capable of providing that. Even the third party options (Tomb Raider) aren't good enough and will only become more expensive to keep as the PS4's lead grows wider.

SmielmaN1144d ago

As a huge gamer, Destiny is the new Halo for me. It's halo evolved ;) and it's going to be massive. And I played the hell out of halos 1-3, but once bungie left it I was done. Destiny will be the gaming worlds next gta/god of war/halo size game IMO.

mochachino1144d ago (Edited 1144d ago )

It's not a new Halo either and the only major remaster is Halo 2. The question is can a remastered 10 year old game save it and appeal to more than just the existing Halo fans. Granted, there's probably 5-6 million halo fans out there but I doubt a redone Halo 2 MP is going to reel in many COD, BF, etc. players. MP has changed a lot since then.

CloudRap1144d ago

overall yes PS4 is leading by a ton (WW especially) but Im glad to see WiiU and Xbox One striving.
