Well if true the ps3 and 360 are really duking it out but this is vg.

mikeslemonade3742d ago

The PS3 sold so well last week that it makes it up for this week. Since the 80gb MGS4 bundle is sold out and Walmart ended that $100 gift card give away on 6/14, so obviously we see a decline because people held back from buying it. But eventually the people will not be able to hold back any longer and just buy it at full price. Next week PS3 will beat 360 again.

ChrisGTR13742d ago

these things are completely made up. it says so right in the description. "VGChartz reports that their estimate .." "estimate".. an estimate = a guess. i cant believe theres still morons here that click these.

morganfell3742d ago (Edited 3742d ago )

Two of the 4 local Gamestops are sold out of PS3s today as is the Best Buy 6 miles from me. I call crap on this story and VGChartz. On top of that the commercials for MGS4 are increasing and that effect is going to last another month.

Think about it. NG2 is the only 360 title in the top 10 and it is easily behind MGS4 yet it is supposed to be driving 360 sales past PS3 sales? Not likely.VGFartz own idiotic figures indict their competence.

mikeslemonade3742d ago

And we know PS3s are being resupplied in early July.

harrisk9543742d ago

That consistently posts VG Chartz numbers (almost every other day it seems!). Many other sites have banned VG Chartz posts due to their inaccuracy. NDP does the "official" U.S. numbers once a month and those are the numbers that I will wait for.

TheUsedVersion3742d ago

Actually the NPD numbers are not accurate either because they do not include the sales info for many retailers such as Walmart. NPD only represents 60%-65% of actual sales data.

omg vgchartz is the most reliable site in the world... /sarcasm

dktxx23742d ago

Ya I think they're way off this time. Sony said MGS4 has sold 3 million so far. And even a fanboy can't think VgChartz is more reliable than Sony.

rakgi3742d ago

i thought they said Shipped 3 million?

Storm233742d ago

They did say shipped 3 million.

dktxx23742d ago

No they said shipped, the site I read it from switched there wording. My bad.

calis3742d ago

3 million around the world. Contrary to popular belief the USA isn't the world.

zigzag3742d ago

Didn't they confirm that MGS4 sold 3 million copies

INehalemEXI3742d ago (Edited 3742d ago )

These #s are Estimates for American region only. 3 million sounds like world wide sales.

RememberThe3573742d ago

Funny thing is, the guy above just discussed that very point.

Cyrus3653742d ago

MGS shipped 3 million, that's alot different than "Sold". Sold to retailers, not sold to consumers.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3742d ago

You will never get PS3 fans to admit that, they think that the copies sitting on the store shelves count as sold. Just like they do when they count PS3's, they say there are 16 million PS3's, when there are only 13.

pumpkinpunker3741d ago

plenty of copies of mgs4 sitting on the shelves at my local best buy.
