PS4 - 178,032 (-62%) 3DS - 98,177 (-4%) XOne - 94,467 (-45%) PS3 - 46,340 (-20%) WiiU - 45,070 (+15%) X360 - 28,909 (-16%) PSV - 19,692 (-12%) Wii - 6,067 (-3%)
I literally just left to see if they have posted the numbers yet, and the PS4 is just killing it......STILL. Sony won this month hands down, and they'll have sold almost 1 million consoles in September alone (holiday numbers in September WOW) 3DS is holding strong in that 90k - 100k range, and the new model should push it back up into the 120k - 150k range. September numbers should be just shy of 400k for the 3DS. XBO is finally starting to settle in, but the the final Tier 2 launch will boost their numbers again (as well as FH2), so we still won't be able to get a good idea of what they're averaging, and possibly not until 2015 since October is gameagedon, and the holiday season is right after that. But it's good for them to have their numbers up, and like I've said they should be in the 600k range (if the China numbers were really 100k) taking a comfortable 2nd place for September. It's great for them, but you can guarantee and XBO price drop is coming sooner or later (November - April). PS3, the little console that could just keeps on going. It should be just shy of 200k units for September. Wii U, is starting to drop back down, but numbers should skyrocket to MK8 numbers when Smash comes out, which is why they probably won't and don't need a price cut until 2015. 165k for the month. 360 is chugging along, just over 100k in sales for the month. Vita, Japan alone is carrying the Vita with the NA and EU sales being awful. This is sad they're not getting over 100k in sales for September, the good news is PSTV is coming to NA in October, and EU in November and hopefully it'll get their numbers up, if not it's time to call it quits. Wii it was a good run.
i'm loving the 3DS stability in sales volumes. new 3DS will be mine day one!
So Youkai Watch 2 is the new Pokemon ? lol
PS4 selling a million a month almost. it should have been on the way to 12 million by the time i'm writing these words.
Hope Bayonetta sales are not true, and Nintendo fans complain about lack of 3rd party support
Vita numbers are terrible in NA because you can't find them. They were sold out for awhile before the slim came out and this month they finally got new stock but it's only carried online. I haven't seen Vita in retail for awhile. I mean they aren't going to be great even if they meet demand but it'd be better than abysmal...
i wonder if they're saving all the silicon for the vita TVs... i'm excited about that little box, but i don't know. kind of suspect it's not going to make much of a splash sales-wise outside of core gamers
come to new york there is a full shelf, probably 12 to 15, with maybe more in the back
The problem is while there are still games coming out for the Vita, Sony isn't making anymore triple A games for the system. It's the Uncharted, Killzone, Resistance, Infamous and Gran Turismo games that sell systems, but Sony has already said that they are not investing in anymore big games for the Vita. I'm actually really confused as to why they are even bothering to release PS Vita TV in North America if they've got no plans to make any system sellers. It streams PS4 games...well thats great if you own a PS4, but how often would you actually use that feature over directly playing on your PS4? If you can't play on your PS4, chances are you have a PS3 or a 360 in another room anyway.
http://www.amazon.com/PlayS... Here ya go
Vita sales were crap back when they were available everywhere. Stop making excuses for it. I'm probably going to buy a Vita TV though. I had borrowed my brothers Vita so I could play Ys: Celceta and between the small size, crappy audio level output, and how its impossible to get comfortable playing it for extended periods of time. Being able to use my computer display or even a picture in picture box will be outstanding.
Between launches in new countries, big game releases, new bundles and the holiday sales soon to start the numbers are going to be all over the place for a while. You'll have to wait until the new year to see where things settle out, then we can get a sense of what the normal sales are like.
You are living vicariously through the success of a game console. You know this? Yes?
When official numbers come out itll still be killing it, nothing is going to stop this train. idc what game comes out on the oppossing platform, people have spoken and first impressions go a longgggggggg wayyyyyyy. Oh the salty disagrees, i love it! Abizzle.... The positive out of all this that benefits gamers the most is that due to the Xbone horrible messaging and Wiiu underpowere, narrowminded thinking comes growth. Already Microsoft is scrambling to try to make the Xbone "seem" better in other aspects and are doing good job with deals and firmware updates because they know if they dont they are even more screwed. Nintendo im sure is revising their whole game plan for their next console and ill bet itll be able to go toe to toe with next gen consoles and they are releasing their first party games slowly butsurely. So you see Ps4 dominiation helps gamers alot and we get good deals out of it. If Ps4 wasnt beating the crap out of Xbone ppl would have never gotten a kinectless sku
I don't think any of the consoles will be able to win a single month of sales until they have something like a huge game and a price drop happen in the same month. This was MS only shot at winning a full month for the year thanks to their Tier 2 launch, and while it shot their numbers up, Destiny + PS4 was just too much to handle. MS has a chance of winning "NPD" (aka US numbers only) for November thanks to Halo: MCC + COD bundle and people wanting to get into the Halo 5 beta, but even then it's still more than likely going to lose the Global numbers and the month of November. I would have gave Smash a chance, but MK8 proved that it's unlikely to allow Nintendo to beat the PS4 as well. I agree first impressions go a long way, and both MS and Nintendo gave Sony this generation, and brought the return of the PS2 among them. The only bit of good news for them is that I don't think they're both going to struggle with only 25m sales.
u mean like when MS cut £39 off there console and included there supposed killer game(titanfall) u can still buy the bundle now and it was limited edition
@ramiuk1 TitanFall was marketed to be a huge game, but it was still unproven and graphically unimpressive (graphics can help sell a game too). If MS has this $329 price drop with Halo, then they can win that month. If Nintendo had a $50 price drop with Kart / Smash, they could win that month. Other than that PS4 is going to dominate for a long time.
Man PS3 is still putting out some decent numbers and congrats to the X1 its on the rise! ;)
You seem very optimistic.
PS4 is doing fantastic. :)
Aside from ps4's dominance, and x1's soon to be boost in weekly sales due to fh2 and ofcourse releasing in China "even 50% of shipped is a solid figure." So yeah, aside from that... look at ps3! Outselling the wiiu, that's the success story here IMO. What a great figure for a last gen system.
I've been saying this every week. The PS3 is the little console that could. PS3 was neck and neck with XBO and Wii U all this year, with the XBO starting to pull ahead now, but for 2014 the PS3 is still ahead of the Wii U in sales which is insane to me for a 8 year old console to beat a new console in sales 8 years later. http://www.vgchartz.com/yea...
PS3 has better games, so no wonder.
Well it did pretty well at launch in China but it was a launch and probably will drop significantly. I'll be interested to see what Sony and Nintendo do there. Kingdom Under Fire II is exclusive to PS4 on consoles so I think it'll really help PS4 in China. Plus it has way more MMOs for it too.
FH2 won't be a big system seller. Racing games rarely are.
Well 6 of my friends are buying an xbox one just for FH2. I can actually see it moving a few systems.
Sony's top 5 exclusives in sales are Gran Turismo 1-5. GT6 didn't do nearly as well as the rest, but the series is still the king over every other Sony owned studio game. This may not necessarily translate into hardware sales, but it definitely moves some units. The car enthusiast scene is huge.
Gran turismo say hi
I think the point is that there are alot of racing games and the only one that moves systems is basically GT. So outside of GT the other 95% of racing games do not move systems hence his use of rarely
well see if xbox one can break the PS4 sales streak in october or november only in the USA of course cuz outside of USA it dosent stand a chance. if it dosent, PS4 is without a doubt the new PS2
I don't think it has a chance in October. November is it's only hope thanks to COD bundle + Halo: MCC, and if it still doesn't happen, then XBO is going to be $329 sometime early 2015 (no later than April).
Agreed about November but remember Sony has the Far Cry 4 black and white bundles in November. I also would not put it past Sony to put out a GTA V bundle and maybe even a WWE 2K15 bundle. If Sony does a GTA V bundle then I think Sony will have November to I think.
$80 drop? would be ballsy, but hard to imagine unless for some even Halo 5 doesn't move units.
@ipach $70, and no this will be well before Halo 5, which is why I said no later than April (2015). Their options for 2015 are to release in Tier 3 region and cut price hoping it increases sales further, and get them near parity with Sony (who's averaging 140k weekly sales, even with dry months for games). Or to simply let Sony dominate market share, which would be detrimental to MS next console. They don't really have a choice. If I had to guess I'd say the XBO would be averaging around 80k consoles weekly now (after all the Tier 2 launch hype and holiday season dies down), so they're still a good margin behind the PS4 in weekly sales. Tier 3 isn't going to help much during the weekly sales, but a price cut will. They can't go toe to toe with Sony with a weaker console at the same price, when Sony is naturally the more popular worldwide brand. 360's success stemmed from the fact that it was a better multiplatform console, had some good exclusives early on, and was $200 cheaper than the PS3 (generally $100 cheaper throughout the rest of the generation) and it still ended up losing by a slight margin (that's now growing). The XBO has none of those things going for it, except some good exclusives, so they have to win everywhere else which is why services, apps, and updates have been so regular on the XBO. Now they need to focus on exclusives and getting the price down.
In my heart the Xbox One wins every time. :)
Wow, the PS3 still doing well :)
The week after will contain the following Tier-2 Xbone launches - - India - Hong Kong - Korea - Singapore - South Africa - Taiwan - Russia Could be a close one.
Nope, PS4 won this. As of now the PS4 is at 783k console with one week to go meaning they're going to be at over 900k console for the month of September, and possibly 1 million. XBO as of now is at 390k which means they have to sell well over 500k console next week for it to be "a close one". PS4 = 900k - 1million XBO = 600k - 700k 3DS = 400k PS3 = 200k Wii U = 165k 360 = 100k Vita = 85k Wii = 25k
Not sure why you are responding to me. Did I reply to you by mistake ? Next week , when vgchartz releases their weekly worldwide numbers for the week ending the 27th.... the PS4 and Xbone will probably be pretty close for the week.
@brew Your comment looked as if you were saying that the sales would be close for the month of September, and not the week. We just has a report saying the XBO "shipped" 100k units in China, and if those numbers were "sold" then the XBO won next week with China and their current weekly sales, without the need for those regions, so I didn't see how your comment was specifically for next week sales only considering that information.
Unless you're meaning that one week might be close, you're way off on this one.
Maybe not as close as you think. The China launch was the best chance the X1 had before Halo. Those countries you just mentioned are all Sony land except maybe for Russia (I'm not sure here) and South Korea is PC land consoles rarely do good there these days.
It would be nice if the thread that focuses on Xbone vs 360 was updated more often. Xbone clearly beat 360 at launch, but then it started loosing ground. However Xbone is about to unleash 3 great exclusives and launch in a bunch more countries - particularly the 100,000 in China which 360 didn't have. So this Holliday could see Xbone stretch it's lead to >2mm more then 360. That's what Xbox owners and MSFT care about. Is the console selling well enough to support it. PS4 is obviously killing it both vs the PS3 and Xbone. I'd like to see a comparison to PS2 and Wii as it competes for best console ever. BTW don't hold your breath for Nintendo and Sony in China. It's not gonna happen for at least another year. It's not their fault, the Chinese government is massively censoring what gamers can play on these consoles and they are going harder on the Japanese than the Americans due to a lot of left over hatred from WW2.
PS4 is doing better than the PS2 did in the same time frame month to month as Sony showed a graph/chart at the TGS about it. PS2 took 13 months to sell 10 million and the PS4 took 9 months
Yakuza 0 will have chinese localization so it may be sooner than you think
Another dominating Week for PS4. Lead is 6m now and it keeps climbing.
Nice work MS loving the new games.
I suppose you think it's pretty weird, don't you Mike? Well, you'd be right. 'Cause THAT'S the kind of guy I am, right? WEIRD. Which is why I go over people's heads. A bit like an aeroplane! You think I'm an aeroplane, don't you, Mike? Well, I'm not.
Actually I was thinking you might get the young ones reference. I was just trying to have a joke with you. But you stay classy dude.
looks like hyrule warriors sold 76 thousand in one day on the chartz in Europe thats pretty good
xbox needs to do better, I now doubt fortza horizons 2 will make much difference as it's available on 360 let's see what decision the public make when next week's numbers are out...
The ps4s killing it!
I am crying I am so happy this is better than any birthday or human event I have ever experienced.
I would take all these numbers with a grain of salt. VGChartz numbers are never accurate. They over estimate and under estimate on a lot of these figures. In anycase, we know the numbers will start increasing because the holidays are getting near and a lot of new exclusive titles will be released in Oct, Nov & Dec. Game on.
