VGChartz data shows that the PS3 has now sold more than 14 million hardware units worldwide. PS3 sales during the week ending 5th July pushed the PS3 over the 14 million milestone.
The PS3 from this time last year to now have shrunk the gap difference betweeen the 360 and ps3 from 6.6 million to 5.6 million hmm
the 360 thats real scary for ms
I really hope that Us ps3 base can catch up to xbox base because that's the only shortcoming.
Vgchartz is wrong. Microsoft's Greenberg already stated back in MAY that the difference was at 5 million consoles. Greeneberg: "Today Xbox 360 has a 5-million-unit console sales lead on a global basis based on most recently public reported data from both companies." And the source: http://www.destructoid.com/... Since then PS3 continues to outsell X360 worldwide (even in the US) so the difference is less then five million right now, closer to 4,2 million I would say
They will catch up because great games keep coming out.
@vasilisk. good spot...bubbles...
hey how about microsoft telling how many actual xbox360 are working at this moment.. versus what how many ps3's are working now... facepalm
Exactly Madestar. I dont care how many XBoxes have shipped, tell us how many are in homes and working right now. M$ will NEVER release those numbers because they know their precious lead will be patheticaly small if we compared working unit numbers. Lets face it, then touting, "We're still in front overall" is all they have left. At a kind guess if 20M are SOLD then at least 5M of those would be broken. (I'm being kind here) leaving 15M still surviving in the wild. Pesimist's (or even realist) would probably tell you it less that that since I only took 25% off for RRoD.
@1.6 & 1.7 I have been saying the same exact thing for way over a year. It is only common sense to come to that conclusion. There is without a doubt a certain amount of TOTALLY broken/unrepairable 360's that consumers never had warrantied/fixed that ARE being counted in M$'s number's. The really sad thing is people continued to purchase multiple 360 consoles afterward (which may somewhat counter the earlier point)....I would NEVER willingly waste my money like that. Hell I got my 360 for free from a friend after it got the RROD and after I fixed it 2 more times afterward (Xclamp -> Penny Mod -> Llama mod = 3x total) and with all the issues my other friends/family had along with all posters on the net would say about their problems what would be the point of spending my hard earned money on something of such poor quality? Disagree all you want kids.....But the absolute fact is the 360 is a damaged piece of hardware with no real worth/value in respects to it's hardware and lack of forethought. It's really a shame though, as if MS would have gotten it right from the get go Sony & Nintendo would have had a hell of a lot more on their hands to deal with. But back to my original point, we'll never really know how many actual "working" 360's are out there and MS will only use these false/skewed numbers to gloat about a half truth...but then again you wouldn't expect absolutely nothing less from them. Right?
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA The gap is geing closer Poor Xbots. PS3 just keeps and keeps outselling the fixme dvd player. People know the future is PS3. Poor Xbots
VGcharts r missing one million ps3! so now its actually 15 million ps3 out there in people homes
what about this? jaja http://www.yahoo.com/
All that hard work the xbot Lemmings done on this trying to bring down the PS3 HASN'T WORKED!!! ;-D Bubbles for ALL PS3 Fans;) Your the BEST 4Real;)
Everyone is concerned with this "console war" but what you are failing to realize is that Sony is already behind. The 360 stole a lot of it's market going out a year early. I know there are a lot of hardcore gamers out there that have both the 360 and the PS3 but Sony lost a lot of potential customers from early 360 adopters. The PS3 retailed at $600. You can now buy that model for $500 or a cheapo for $400. That is a huge cut to take on before your PS3 division is even profitable. The ps2 is the ps3's life support. Sony is lucky they could fall back on it but their current model is bleeding them. (in the gaming division of the company)
Sony isnt behind M$ Jumped the Gun with a Shoddy Cheap Inferior PC called a Console and Killed of the First, so Xbots had to "Mandatory Upgrade".....thats not leading... PS3 on the other hand is just doing it thing..Its Not Like a Xbox or a Teen age Boy that blows its load and runs out of Gas early.....Its more a woman or a Cougar depending how u look at it..Gotta get it 'Warmed Up".and it luke warm right now getting steamy... and u talk about price cuts...how many has M$ had....lost count..and lets not get in to the how many differnt kinds of CrapBox 2's u can buy... And my $600 PS3 60 gig retail is F&%*%$G Unbelievably Excellent worth EVERY PENNY I WORKED FOR!..and NOT Bought like your Xbox buy MoMy and Only Brain dead Xbots care about 'the console War' since Most if not all the Fud crap come out of Shane and Idiots on payroll @ M$.
Poor Fartbaby. Denying the inevitable.
At Christmas The Xbox had a 2 year start HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA Tell you what If it was the PS3 that had a 2 year head start There is no chance in Hell that heap of crap the Xbox would have overtook the PS3 Never mind in 2 years well at least you got FFXIII to look forward to next year
The Xbox 360 only had a 1 year lead.
one year is a lot considering some consoles barely go past the 5 year stage.
the head start was over 1 year in EU and thats where they passed them in sales. thats awesome.
that number will continue increase
oh hell... Kinda funny that this number is shrinking. Kinda how it did when the Wii over took them...makes one wonder! (sorry couldn't resist) -Black
you guys please remember that this is from VGchartz
Yeah seriously, this number from them means little. I don't even know why stats from them even get approved anymore.
yes it did check around you will c gamestop amozon ebay
another VG chart article again.
is still a long time when you consider it. Many people decided to abandon Sony just to get a 360 before PS3 came out. Plus they had 1 more year to make more games. The PS3 being able to surpass the 360 is an amazing thing considering the 360's initial launch. People are finally starting to realize that PS3 is the future, and the 360 is becoming the past.
Yeah I remember when 360 first came out (in UK) and my mate was saying "aww I was going to wait for a PS3 but I couldn't and I bought a 360 instead". He regretted it somewhat after PS3 came out, but didn't have the money to buy one. Things are turning round again now.
I have to agree. The PS3 is slowly selling more and more over the 360. It was below, then went up to about even, passed it up a little bit, now is selling a hefty amount more.
14 million PS3 owners?Damn!Square Enix considers that a small fanbase?
Well I dont think they should release FF13 for Xbox in Europe either. Maybe UK only. But in the US I understand taking advantage of the install base there.
How many of those have a game console or a blu-ray player? The only people that have both are the stupid cunty droids that infect these boards like a cancer!
Wow snufkin,besides owning both consoles for myself,your comment was ridiculous and disgusting.I was just talking business but your reaction is typical droid whether you go for Sony,Microsoft,and Nintendo.
Snufkin = Another one off xBox LIVE??? YAWN! I'm going to get a PLATINUM Trophy soon!!! i.e '100' xBot Lemmings 'Ignored' on this!!! ;-D
PS3 attach rate for DMC Assassins Creed GTAIV Uncharted has sold more copies than both Mass Effect or Bioshock 360 All higher than the 360's. The Blu-Ray thing is played out to death.
how much quicker PS3 sold 14 million units than the XBOX 360.
actually, if you replace Wii with PS2 - the graphs shows that the PS3 sales-from-launch is EXACTLY on pace with that of the PS2: http://vgchartz.com/hwlaunc... Here's to hoping for continued successs!
Sony is really outpacing Microsoft right now with Hardware sales.
Good Point...I think personally they expected MGS to sell more...we should check back when MGS bundle is back in stock... or is in a new better bundle...Also saying that a new bundle coming is sept, is kind of dumb, people will just wait for that bundle then...
And that's just common sense. They had 12.8 million worldwide by the end of March. In late April, MS even said they only have a 5 million unit worldwide lead. So we have April, May, June, and now half of July over. So don't try to tell me they didn't get past 14 million long before now. Especially with them outselling the 360 since late 2007
They said "5 Million Unit lead", but didn't count the Wii and didn't count any region except North America. I wonder if they'll be able to put any sales figures up by the time E3 '09 hits.
I think it will slow down now, people are realising that Xbox 360 is cheaper, has better games, more exclusives, better graphics and better online. I see only one reason at the moment to get a PS3 and that is "Little Big Planet".
There's only a $50 difference between the two systems. Sony has a Lot more exclusive games for 2008 than Microsoft. PS3 obviously has a huge power advantage over 360; just look at the games from E3. Online is identical in terms of quality of online play, as well as gaming and non-gaming services. Only difference is Xbox Live is $50 a year and PSN is free. ----------------------------- ----------- Overall, PS3 sales keep increasing each month while 360 sales have stagnated, and the main reason is quality and quantity of software. Sony has stayed committed to delivering on the software front.
I don't quite agree with you there. The Price for both consoles will be the same since a 60 gig 360 with 1 year live will be $400 compared to a 80 gig Ps3 for $400 so they cancel each other out. As for having better games that's all a matter of personal preference to tell the truth specially since a good 90 percent of games now a days are multiplatform. Online features 360 gets the nod. As for better graphics they are on the same level just take a look at recent multiplatform titles and 1st party exclusives for each console. Like i said before it's gonna come down to game preference. Honestly you can't go wrong with purchasing either of the two consoles.
Actually, it's pretty clear to me that the PS3 has the substantially better games lineup from this point onward. That's including the fact that FFXIII went multiplatform.
ROFL.. You're so funny! should be comedian!
Rayko, is that common weed that you and your fellow 360 owners are smoking, that's some bad sh^t man/ On a side note. WTF are you on about. Yes 360 is cheaper, but cost more in the long run, for less features, dodgy hardware. Less exclusives or poor ones. Have u seen Motorstorm 2. hahahha. F^kin owns, and don't get me started on killzone2 32 player online, destructable enviroments or Resistance 2, or even the one you mentioned, LPB. That game alone will shift so many consoles, even Nintendo wanted to buy the company. 360 slowing down. ps3 speeding up. Neck and neck, and ps3 goes into 5th gear and pulls away. It's all good. Seems like not so many people want to jump in now. And PSN has come on leaps and bounds, Home is where it's gonna be at. When MS finish 3rd this time, there won't be another console.
Have a little self respect and smoke something without seeds. On topic... After the holiday season i bet sony will have left m$ in the dust. you could say microsoft will get ...dusted... perhaps.
The 360 has a 5 million lead on the PS3 in the US alone!
but... thats the only place they are leading
And in Europe, they're about 300K units behind. Overall, it's not much of a worldwide lead. 3 or 4 million units? What happened to their 10 million unit lead just over a year ago?
VGchartz is garbage. Same results put 360 and 14million but if you go to there graph on the same sight its at around 20million. all the figures on that sight are a mess. Microsoft said they sold 19million months ago and im sure sony are around 15million or so. These figures are made up nonsense.
vgcharts are really terrible for real numbers of games and sales. PS3 has sold at least 15 million.
too july 2007 ms only sold 10,410,603 360s world wide and sony is at 14million and its not even 2 years yet check the vgcharts to who ever disagrees go and check and stop hating
and stop hating
If that's true then...um... HOLY SH*T...vg chartz really have their stuff messed up.
juuken is an arsehole!
No you and your sad little xBot bum-boys are @SS-HOLES!!! Hope your xBox 360 death is painful
...;____; Meanie. Oh God Colbert, don't even go there. Don't make me hate on your show now. >.<
Looks like you made a new friend
Just joking Juuken.<-----three j's Snufking your just a tool.
You better be Colbert. x3
As my comment above, Vgchatz is garbage. You can pull figures from there all you want they are completly wrong. Even the sight itself has different figures for the same thing. And going by your figures that means Msoft has sold 10million from July 07 till now once again going by Vgchartz..see what i mean.
my title stated from oct.2005 then i wrote ms 360 sold 10 million from then too july 2007 read it right its about the same time frame from 360 too ps3 comparison
Acording to TVg and SIM Ps3 is sitting at nearly 15 million world wide units. VG charts is a crock of spit in a shoe shine box. They can kiss pork for all I care. Let me ask you this, if you had a friend who was always unreliable. Unreliable about news, unreliable about facts about everything man. Would you call them up on the million dollar question and ask them for advice? no. No you wouldn't and that is why I don't call these ass smacks up for advice when it comes to actual facts.
i dont care what anyone says ps3 is selling really fast even if that data is incorrect
Hold up if the PS3 passed the XBOX 360 in Europe which puts both consoles at the 5 Million+ mark in Europe, and Sony has 5 - 6 Million in the U.S., with Microsoft at the 10 million mark in the U.S., and with Sony at 2-3 Million in Japan, and Microsoft under 500,000 in Japan, shouldn't Microsoft only have a 3-4 Million lead. Then again I'm no math wiz. LOL
I agree its selling well, better than the 360, don't get me wrong but its still not selling like it should for a playstation console. From being the market leader by a mile to selling around 90,000 a month worldwide more than a rival which was considered doomed and not even a threat by Sony is bad. They should be steaming ahead not playing catch up.
See, to me that is still the dumbest argument. By rights, I could then say the 360 will forever play catchup to the PS2. Yeah, it had a bigger head start, but that doesn't really change the basis of your argument.
