Hardware: PS4 - 155,247 (+10%) 3DS - 99,578 (0%) XOne - 82,629 (+56%) PS3 - 51,544 (+18%) WiiU - 45,843 (-6%) PSV - 34,683 (+23%) X360 - 26,137 (-1%) Wii - 7,332 (-2%) PSP - 3,612 (-11%)
That Xbone bundle was definitely worthwhile, even if it couldnt get near the PS4 sales.
Next week, it should have an additional boost thanks to launching in other regions. And then the week after that it should get a boost from free game week during Destiny launch (PS4 should get a huge bump that week as well)... speaking of which, I am interested to here an official announcement for Destiny first week sales. Should be the biggest game launch of the year so far.
next week's spike won't change much, even though VGchartz is not a trusted source. PS4 is just unbeatable.
@abzdiine The Madden boost should wear off but Japan will, by itself give them at least 25k. I don't believe it will top the PS4, but it should not go back to pre Madden levels and may just even have a decent shot at 100k. BTW, I am just making an educated guess.
When will the post xbone jp launch numbers?
Yeah, good to see too. Strange though that there is a bigger jump in PS3 sales than PS4 sales. Any ideas why this may be? But anyway, 54% increase is good to see on the Xbox One side of things. Competition is good.
I think it is because you can play Destiny on it and you can pick up PS3 Bundles around for extremely cheap. Releasing Destiny on Last gen consoles I think was a bit of a mistake because it still didnt give everyone the needed push to buy the newest ones. XB 360 still sold 25k and it along with PS3 should be flat almost by now.
@MSBAUSTX Bubbled up! Makes perfect sense. I can also see Tales of Xillia sold a bucket load last week also.. perhaps this contributed? Anyway, good to see the jump in console sales across the board. If you look at last weeks sales you will notice the massive jumps.
Destiny isn't part of that week
Well, it's not like a US sports game was going to rock the entire world.
Go Wii and PSP!!
Good job Sony. :^)
Nice to see the Vita going up, even if by a tiny amount.
Good week for everyone!
Looks like everyone did good in August.
So in your twisted head Sony outselling ALL other competitors is not a good August? I honestly don't know why I'm replying to you since you are a one bubble troll.
What he meant was that Sony didn't do good; they did great. (I know it's not really what he meant, but hey.)
The PS4 sold more than the other two current gen competitors combined... But yeah, oh man, they did awful this week!
Even though I know your just trolling I'll respond to that anyway. Sony sold a total of 245,086 hardware units for the month of August. How can anyone say that's not good? Even Microsoft sold a total of 108,766. It's not close to Sony's numbers but that's still good. With that being said Nintendo sold 152,753 which is very good btw. So I guess i was wrong and Sony did great ;)
The Neverland magical sales numbers from VGC.
No matter how they turn those...if you look at the separate markets the numbers just don't add up - no matter how many "shadow" markets are not included in the totals...just saying. And I doubt X1 outsold the PS4 in the US - even with the Madden bundle.
Good to see Sony doing so well. Definitely well deserved. Then again this is vgchartz.
People said they're would be no jump in sales for x box 1 if it sold in more regions +56 just confirms how wrong people are. Sony was always going to dominant by shipping to 100 countries and Microsoft 13. We are seeing an increase at they beginning of this rollout to other another 23 or 26 countries and not all the countries have gone live yet.
That countries theory sounds so desperate. The One already launched in the big markets, and is dominated by the PS4, launching in small countries won't make that much of a difference, especially when those countries already have a next gen console available
Perhaps you didn't look at the sales. 52% increase in Xbox One sales since last week. Theories aside, the console has seen a massive increase in owners. In comparison to last week, the Xbox One has grown it's fanbase by percentage more so than the PS4 (although obviously there are more PS4s being sold). Stop being a fanboy.
@jrshankill Destiny and Madden helped increase sales, funny that you call me a fanboy, yet you twist numbers so desperately
Ok we get it. KNWS loves his XB1 while xHeavYx loves his PS4. Yawn!
@xHeavYx "Destiny and Madden helped" Source? Didn't think so.
The 52% increase is mainly due to the Madden release in the US and does not really reflect any other markets than the USA. Madden was bundled with the X1 there.
Yeah, I'm sure the increase has nothing to do with Madden.... Besides, people said that the extra countries wouldn't make a difference in the comparative sales to the other systems (specifically ps4), not that there would be literally ZERO additional Xbones sold.
@KNWS First off this is for August 30th, the XBO didn't sale in other regions until September. The reason this weeks numbers were so high were strictly because of the US and the promotions and bundles going on. The MS Store had their promotion Trade in a 360 or PS3 and get $100 off an XBO. GameStop offered a similar promotion but only a 250GB HDD got you $100 off, and the 4GB / 12GB got you $50 off. And if you were a Xbox fan and a Madden fan, then it made sense to trade in your old console and get the Madden Bundle for $as little as 299 (Wii U price). That's the only way MS is going to compete with Sony, as I've been saying for the longest, and this further proves my point, and shuts the disagree fairies up. When you look at the XBO and PS4 at the same price, any logical person who has no alliance to ether console is going to look at games, performance, and sales. Both have similar game offerings, but performance goes to PS4, and the PS4 has sold 2x as many consoles worldwide, so it makes sense to get the PS4 first, because the XBO will most likely be the first of the two to have a price drop out of necessity to increase sales. When the 360 was only $100 cheaper than the PS3, the PS3 was still outselling it by a slim margin; however when the 360 was $150 - $200 cheaper than the PS3 it would pull ahead in sales, and when it was only $50 cheaper the PS3 would leap ahead of them. PRICE, games, and content is how MS makes a comeback with the XBO. Secondly, PS4 is in less than 60 countries not 100, unless I missed a huge launch. For MS these smaller regions are only going to make a large impact in September for simply being launch month, so of course there's going to be a sales boost. However, in the long run the sales from these 29 countries will at best offer a weekly 10k - 15k boost (aka 300 - 500 units per region which is still good, but goes to show MS needs to improve it's US and EU sales). As I said before MS has a good chance of winning September. If this promotion and Madden can make their numbers jump from 50k last week to 80k this week, then extended the promotion until the end of the year, on top of the new promotion (buy an XBO bundle, get 1 game free, and $50 gift card), Destiny launch (PS4 should get the bigger boost, but XBO should get something as well), and the launch in 29 new regions (Japan had the worse launch ever, but that's still 23k extra XBO's sold in 1 week), and they're setting themselves up to win September. XBO numbers will be up through the holidays (although I think they lose October, November, and December WW, and possibly win November NPD), but when mid January rolls back around we'll see the true story of how they're selling, and I expect MS to be back down in the 70k - 80k range., meanwhile PS4 will still be cruising in the 110k - 120k range.
Man, you did your research. I wouldn't be surprised if you're right on the money with your predictions. Any chance you could replace Pachter?
@Benjammin25 I keep asking for my check, but these companies don't want to give it to me XD Some of this is from experience though. I got my XBO in August because of these promotions. I was going to trade my 360 in, but I gave it to my little brother instead since I already have a $100 gift card from trading in some old games to the MS Store. I don't really pay attention to sales too much, but I saw the trend with the PS3 and 360. When the PS3 was $100 - $300 more than the 360 at launch, sales dipped for the PS3 (also due to lack of supply). But when the PS3 made it down to $100 more than the 360 it was outselling it on a monthly basis. Then MS would drop price $50, and things would balance out. Then the PS3 slim came and the PS3 started outselling by a good margin, then MS did a price cut and things were still in favor of the PS3, but not nearly as bad. It was like that for the rest of the gen which is why the PS3 ended up eventually outselling the 360. The xbox brand needs price advantage to beat PlayStation if everything is on equal terms (and the PS3 was at a big disadvantage at the beginning of last gen) . THe XBO is doing fine, and it will do better when it's in more countries, but it's still going to be losing to the PS4 with the exception of maybe September for worldwide number because of the 29 new country launch, and possibly November NPD if they have a great deal on the console for Black Friday. Something Halo: MCC + TitanFall + Forza 5 = $379, would do it for them, and they can get away with it since it's their exclusives. For the average 360 fan all that's left for them to do is pick up Call of Duty and Madden, and they're set until holiday 2015.
http://www.sony.com/SCA/com... Check the 4th paragraph/sentence: "The PS4 system is currently available in 100 countries and regions*4 worldwide." 8x as many as X1, and 2x the sales, good for both when put into perspective.
With the Destiny launch I strongly doubt the X1 will come close to PS4 sales in September. The white PS4 bundle will create quite a spike in PS4 sales. The Japanese X1 release will not matter.
@Foehammer Just saw that too, but here's more perspective. The PS4 has sold 5.1m consoles in the US and UK alone, meaning the PS4 has should the XBO lifetime sales in 13 regions, in just 2. Perspective can be used to anyone's advantage.
I said good for "BOTH", but I guess troll only see what they want. Here's more perspective X1 at 25% more expensive for 7 months sold almost 80% of the lower priced console in the 2 Countries you mentioned.
For one. VGchartz is probably increasing Microsoft numbers as usual. Second. Isn't this the week ending 30th August? Xbone hadn't been launched in other countries at this point
You're being very kind to Microsoft with that analysis. If you want to see a real massacre, wait for the Destiny numbers. This was August 30th. You know...when the Madden Xbox One bundle released?
Apparently 13 is just as much as 100 according to the disagrees.
Or...the PS4 isn't in 100 countries. ;^/ Unless you (or any of his 'agreers') can link to show us otherwise?
Or the fact that over 50% of the console sales come from the places xbone has already been released in for months and months, I guess those facts escape your fanboy mind when thinking this stuff through, its not going to be even close to level sales once every one has released everywhere. The PS4 will remain ahead and will continue to sell more world wide every week and every month.
@ KNWS This is August 30th. The X1 didn't launch worldwide yet. The boost is because of the heavy marketing and the Madden bundle. When the PS3 came a year later, Xbox fans still declared victory. Even though overall it caught up with the 360, and will outpace it. Funny how these things are forgotten.
madden 15. 1,2,3,4.
Ok once again - the other day the Bone was at 5.2 million not it is back to 5.1. This happened a few weeks ago when they took it from 5.1 to 5.0. WTF????? People making this shit up???? I know PS4 is killing it globally but how the hell do you give and take sales like that?????
What they do (apparently) is make estimates and then correct them when data comes in (whatever that means.) They had the PS4 undertracked by over 600k and they have the Wii U overtracked currently. Never take the numbers for absolute gospel.
wii u is undertrack buddy, where you get over tracked at, show your sources and not your assumptions
People arguing over vgchartz numbers, that's very funny considering how unreliable vgchartz is.
no ones really arguing.
Solid stuff Nintendo and MS love your work keep those great games coming.
I´m glad but honestly also surprised how well the PS4 is doing, good product is good though. Go Vita!
Why are you surprised the PS4 is doing well? Sony hasn't put a foot wrong since they announced it. It's a great console in my opinion.
"good product is good"
Damn I bought a PS Vita Slim. PLain awesomeneses!!!
I am sorry you bought one, but glad you having fun, thats all that matters these days since people like to bring up sales all the time......in the past when Wii was winning, people did not care about sales, but its okay we should of knew this would happen
Sony still dominant as usual. Xbone will be playing catch-up all gen and its drones will come up with all kinds of excuses as to why it's being outsold.
