Congrats X1, looking forward to a 2015 as great as 2014.

Impressive sales for what was the highest priced console for 7 months.

Looks like MS was right; 10m shipped would be something north of 9m for the last week of November, that's awesome for just 42 Countries.

Looks like at least 10m sold by years end.

Well done

mikeslemonade1350d ago

That totally caught me by suprise. I guess that just shows you how much of a nintendo hater I am. Wow it's 9.1 vs 7.9mil now.

I only look at PS4 vs X1 sales and I just totally missed when the X1 actually took over the WiiU sales.

vishmarx1350d ago

you do realize they are contradicting with their own numbers most of time?

Ezz20131350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

Your first mistake that you believe any of those numbers from Lolchartz
This site should be banned from here

If Microsoft passed WiiU numbers
they would announce it already
just like they wasted no time telling every one they outsold Ps4 in 2 weeks (God only know how the hell they know that since NPD don't give numbers untill next month)

CrowbaitBob1349d ago


MS probably would be talking about passing the WiiU, if anyone actually took WiiU seriously.

souga_houjou_jin1350d ago

They still gonna loose this gen buddy sry

Lev19031350d ago

Selling 10 million isnt losing. Sorry Buddy. This is not a sport league where there can only be one vitor;)

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1350d ago

When you're selling 4 million consoles at a loss, it certainly isn't a win.

jimbobbeers1350d ago


Remind me how many PlayStation's were sold at a loss last gen? PS3 lost heaps of cash in its first years.

ShadowWolf7121350d ago


Between the $50 markdown and free games, MS was giving away well over $200 off in sales. That they had to dip to that to sell the console is pretty abysmal news.

Sony may have sold PS3s at a loss, but it sure wasn't having to hand out $200+ to get people to buy it.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen1350d ago


"Remind me how many PlayStation's were sold at a loss last gen? PS3 lost heaps of cash in its first years."

You're right, but that still doesn't change the fact that the Xbox One is currently being sold at a loss.

darthv721349d ago

@shadow, do you not remember sony giving away 5 bluray movies with each PS4 purchase?

they didnt have the games to give away at the time so they had to use what they did have which was movies. if you want to promote the format...what better way than by just giving away 5 titles.

It didnt matter that they were competing with the hddvd at the time...this was about selling PS4's and that is just one of a few tactics they used to move systems. the other tactics was dropping the price (twice) within the first year and releasing revised systems with missing features at a reduced production cost.

Kingthrash3601349d ago

So we just gunna ignore the losses the rrod caused the 360 last gen?
Jus saying.
Really doesn't matter tho the Wii blasted both the 360 and ps3. Outselling them at a profit.

"that's awesome for just 42 Countries."

You do realise that if any of these numbers are to be believed then about 70% of these sales are in just 2 countries.

That means they have sold less than 3 million in the other 40... "awesome"!

Gamer19821350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

You do realise Xbox is for sale in China where they have a 1/4 of the worlds population right? No other console is.. So it has the biggest market by far.. Yet still gets outsold worldwide every week by ps4. At least it outsold the ps4 in the UK and USA for 1 week though right? How about you take the fact you cherry pick to make your choice of console look good and go home. The fact is MS are losing money on consoles and still getting outsold worlwide but heres the best bit..

They don't care!! Once you buy XBL they make there cash back! Also they are selling more xbox ones than xbox 360 did since its launch so although they are behind PS4 they are still making a shed load of cash and sales.. They have however gotta get off there high horses and stop gunning for Sony and be happy with what they got..

Reminds me of WCW this does they were beating the WWF for many years by attacking them direct until the WWF came back super strong with the attitude era and just finished them enough for the then WWE to buy them up. Ending them once and for all and that's what hatred gets you in the end.

Theres enough room for 2 consoles out there as WiiU doesn't even count its in a world of its own.

Wh15ky1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )


I'm going to assume that was meant as a reply to Foehammers comment and not mine.

That is a very good point though. You could argue that the xbox one is available to possibly twice as many people worldwide than the PS4, in which case the number of countries they are both available in really is absolutely meaningless.

Mikey Mike1350d ago

@ Gamer1982, PS4 goes on sale in China at the end of Dec. Asian system for an Asian market.

calis1350d ago

"that's awesome for just 42 Countries. "

This excuse again, lol.

Magicite1350d ago

Just STOP(!) mentioning number of countries!
At least 2/3 of Xbox sales are coming from USA/UK alone.

dadz1350d ago

Why do you get so many disagrees for congratulating MS? I think they are doing well for themselves as well.

Wh15ky1350d ago

I don't think that's why he's getting the majority of his disagrees, at least that's not the reason I disagreed with him.

"that's awesome for just 42 Countries."

There's a reason he has just one bubble.

Jaqen_Hghar1350d ago

will you please...stop...mentioning...t he amount of countries! It has been outsold in EVERY country they are both in. It couldn't even outsell PS4 in the US until the month of what was basically a $100 price cut in November.

reaperofsouls1349d ago

@ FoeHamer

Are not also going congrat Sony for selling 16M in 12 months

nosferatuzodd1349d ago (Edited 1349d ago )

yeah really good considering they was force to drop the xbox to bargin bin level and give away like 50 games with the console very nice indeed if ps4 did that they would of sold 30 million by now lol

Foehamer no he's not he's here to gloat over sales numbers the xbox fanboys are so proud. they are the same one who was saying don't watch the sales numbers watch the game lol

trunkswd1350d ago

Agreed! The PS4 is winning this gen, but the Xbox One and Wii U are both doing well and there are amazing games to play on all 3 consoles.

BitbyDeath1350d ago

Wii U was said to have sold 7.3 million end of September.
Should be well ahead of 8 million by now.

trunkswd1350d ago

The 7.3 million figure is most likely shipped to retail.

C_Ali881350d ago

No VGchartz is just unreliable... Who keeps submitting this?

Gemmol1350d ago

Nintendo do not give out shipped numbers, I like how sony switch up, if you look at sony financial reports when the ps3 was out they gave shipped numbers, but now that they selling they want to give sold to customers number, this is a clear sign they doing better

DefenderOfDoom21350d ago

to C_Alii88 .... VG Chartz is N4G's sister site .

Sparkticle1350d ago

Which is why you encounter so much biased bullsh*t on both.

Loadedklip1349d ago

Wii U plus PC is the master race.

LOL_WUT1349d ago

Wait you actually took his comment seriously?

Anyways, congrats to Microsoft very good sales ;)

Loadedklip1349d ago

Did I reply to your alternate account LOL_WUt? Cuz I don't recall replying to you.

kalimero21350d ago

Good job PS4! 7 million lead over xbox one after 1 year. it should be 50 million gap after all is done

xTheMercenary_1350d ago

Why are you hating for? accept that both are doing quite and yes obviously the ps4 is doing better but these figures don't effect you in anyway at all, enjoy whatever system you choose to buy but don't start bragging about sales figures which don't make you any better than any other person.

CaptainObvious8781350d ago

Actually these figures do affect me greatly.

Remember what MS tried to pull at the announcement of the xbone?

The smaller the influence MS has on the industry the better.

beastModeOn1350d ago

Agreed kalimero2.

Ps4 is going to own 2015. Can't freaking wait.

King is back baby!
