LOL at VGchartz. isn't this website banned from several forums including IGN, Gametrailers, and Neogaf?
Wow, at first when i read the top... i thought i saw trillions and billions!!!
europe really doesnt like the 360.
Even with the 360's price being less than the Wii's. WW, according to VGChartz, the PS3 has outsold the 360 by 1.6million consoles this year and will have outsold the 360 by 2 million by September. With a difference of only 5 million consoles at the end of summer, its very possible to see the PS3 pass the 360 in WW install base early next year. Its even more possible considering the line up the PS3 has at that time including exclusives InFamous, Killzone 2, and M.A.G. This could be accelerated further with a price cut from Sony on their PS3 later this year in Europe(where the 360 has already cut the price by 70 euros)
selling 200K over xbox from NPD numbers is smashing the xbox.....selling over 30K is but a pinch..but nice spin anyways...you droids buying games or what?
@ 1.1 You're comparing a month to a week. Now who has more spin?
Lol, gotta admit Snuka, he has a point.
You just got OWNED by Roller.....AHAHAAHHAHHAHA
poor xbot, why so blind?
You can make a mountain out of a mole.
The 360 only outsold the PS3 from August to November last year(price drop and Halo). What makes people think that selling less than 20,000,000 in 3 years is impressive is beyond me. In fact, it has only outsold the original Xbox by 4,000,000 units WW! Lol seriously. The Xbox360 is a failure. THe PS3 is going to pass it, and we all knew it was coming.
so according to VGchartz, the lead is closing between the 360 and PS3, the gap was at 5.52, now its at 5.37, [email protected] VGchartz, the gap is supposed to be at under 5 million already
DS Wii PS3 PSP 360 ps2 although ps2 probably outsold 360 this week but vgchartz couldn't bear posting that.... LMAO
you beat me, I was gonna post: "achievement unlocked: 360 barely outsells PS2"
It's xBox 360 Vs PS..........2!!! ;-D The xBox 360 is Cheaper than the Wii in the U.K and it Still can't beat it!!! ;-D PS3 88,449 ;-P 360 58,446 ;-D Micro$luts need to Buy the Air we Breathe QUICK!!! ;-D
overtracks 360, so ps2>360!
Why all the 'Disagrees' for??? It's not my Fault...Oh er erm Yes it is!!! ;-D Ken Kutaragi Killer of Other companies Consoles!!! ;-D Stick to 'Windows' Micro$lags!!! ;-D
I know VGcharts isn't very accurate but damn it's embarassing to see the 360 sell so low even with a price cut.
The ps3 and 360 were reversed and 360 fanboys were making fun of how ps3 was just beating ps2. Turnabout is fair play. p.s. VGchartz over tracks 360 so it is less than ps2.
This is way off I because I know the 360 had to shoot up from the price cut.
Err, what do you mean jwatt? Europe had it's price cut about amonth ago. I think US's price cut takes place this week. When American Hardware sales come into play, we'll have to see how much of an impact it had on sales, if any at all.
lol I don't no why I was thinking it was America, ok now it makes sense.
Ahh, I see. Yea, I thought there was another one that I didnt know about so I as well was slightly confused. All a misunderstanding :P
These are more guestimates.
"people who say guestimate"
not to mention the ps3
everyone knows vgcharts numbers are crap.. they always overestimate the 360 numbers and underestimate the ps3 numbers
Do you think PS3 and 360 are close to equalling on total sales in Europe? It's hard to find reliable numbers (VGCharts being at the bottom of the scale of reliability) but surely it's real close now, by the end of the year maybe?
over 1 million something ahead of the ps3, had no idea that it was that high. now microsoft just bump it up to 80,000 a week!!!! VERY SMART TO FOCUS ON THE MARKET OF EUROPE AS THE REAL PLACE FOR CONSOLE WARS..... gears of war bundles, guitar hero, rock band, warhound, push them onto the shelves microsoft and own them like mad.....29,000 ahead is nothing, the 360 can just let loose now
Lase week the PS3 outsold the 360 by 20,000 units in America. According to NPD they have outsold the 360 by 250,000 this year. Umm..it aint looking good lol. Soon it will be a few idiots who bought the 360 playing, arguing that the PS3 has NO GAMES!LOL. While the PS3 blows past it in install base and significance. Basically the 360 will be the new HD-DVD. And...Gears will come to the PS3 lol. (BTW. Just like Sony doesn't own the rights to Final Fantasy, Microsoft doesn't own the rights to Gears of War. If they saw fit, Epic could bring the series to the PS3.)
Microsoft does own publishing rights. Microsoft doesn't own publishing rights for any other Epic Games, but they did nail them down for the Gears series. Gears of War is expected to only be a trilogy similar to Halo, and when Microsoft secured a publishing deal that means no Gears of War for playstation 3. Pretty smart move too, since Gears will sell a whole lot across europe. And it is one of those games that is actually a second party effort instead of third party. So no doubt, they will use much of its awesome force to erode and take over playstation's long known market in europe as well as capture the european gaming audience. Extremely good tactics, which will do great for them in France especially.
Was barely outsold in Europe by Gears. It was only outsold by 150,000 units. So this idea that Gears is going to win over Europe for the 360 is completely false. If Halo couldn't do it, how in the hell will Gears, especially when releasing against many strong PS3 titles. On top of that it already cost 100euros less than the PS3 and it is still outsold. And once again, Gears of War 3 can legally come to the PS3. It would be just like Microsoft paying of Square to bring Final Fantasy to the 360. Epic owns the IP, so bottom line is that if the PS3 sells enough consoles and sees fit to pay off Epic for Gears 3 it can happen. They have publishing rights for Gears 1 and Gears 2 ONLY. Not Gears 3. Reality is that the 360 never sold that well anywhere. And now that the PS3 is finding its stride it is killing the 360. The 360 this year has sold more consoles in this period than either the original Xbox or the Xbox360, yet the PS3 has still outsold it by almost 2,000,000 consoles at $399! I love how 360 fanboys try and spin that somehow. It was over before it began. 360 = used to be a good console with good exlusives, but it never was mainstream and never will be.
Unfortunately jandre makes mistakes all over the place, in assuming that "Gears of War" was the only surprise Microsoft has for Europe. If you believe that there's three more bridges my colleague can sell you. No in fact, Gears of War is only one of the million seller games MS will unleash in Europe. As Microsoft Games has gone to the battlefield in Europe, alot of their major exclusives like Killer Instinct 3 and its ilk are going to be unveiled for Europe specifically. MS and its future projects as well as games, will very likely be focused on Europe exclusively since that is where their attention has to be to win. And they have many games, music and adventure games and RPGs like Infinite Undiscovery to completely woo the european gaming press. These are all kinds of games from talented developers, whom they haven't even begun to show off yet most likely. Banjo Kazooie got major applause across Europe, and its safe to say that they have quite a few games ready in the wings. Don't ever underestimate MS in the country of Europe, that would be your last mistake. Thinking they could possibly not offer any competition to Sony their main rival, is a fool's errand. Sony shouldn't feel so hot about its European numbers early in the game, especially when the Xbox is getting to spread its wings in Europe, where all the real bombshells will drop. Half Life Episode 3 was confirmed with new story modes.
PLEASE no more vgchartz crap on here. Can there be a rule or something established, because they aren't even close to reliable as official data has proven them wrong again and again.
come on ban this site already... N4G is already pretty full of stupid articles but vgchartz is really the tip of the iceberg
My son is always three months ahead of the trends and he says VGchartz suck!!!
VGChartz needs to be banned from here. As far as I know there aren't any banned sites here on N4G, but this seriously needs to be one.
How we get yet another VGCharts article. Oh wait... no it isn't.
How do you go about getting a site banned from this website ?
and request to the mods to get this crap removed
It's sad to see a console dying. I'm pretty sure MS will try to make Xbox 720 come out earlier because of this flop (which should turn in a complete disaster after the end of 2008). Still, I'm afraid Xbox 720 will flop too since they still don't understand you win a console war by making games in 1st/2nd party studios and not by buying ports and copying everything Sony or Nintendo does. How they still have only 2 studios (vs Sony 20+ or 30+) while having MS money is beyond me. What a crappy management at Xbox division... Without MS behind them, the Xbox brand would have disappeared with the first model.
Seriously. Why the hell is Microsoft even in this business? The overall loss for the first Xbox was around 5 billion. Has any console in the history of video gaming ever had a net loss of that much within its lifespan? They already lost almost 2 billion this generation from RROD alone. Microsoft would have to dominate the next two generations of video gaming just to break even.
Yeah, only MS could take such losses and stay... :) They came because consoles were killing PC gaming and it did hurt Windows sales... But they lost much more with this strategy.
Isn't the 360 cheaper than the Wii in Europe?
in Europe and Japan.
It's hard to believe anyone pays attention to VGcharts anymore!
To wholikeswood. I would suggest you let Cyrus handle the VGChartz numbers, it's kinda his thing.
VG is garbage no matter who submits it. Maybe Cyrus finally saw what a retard the Source is - they were even calling him out on his own website. Undertracked ps3 almost 75k and overtracked 360 sales by about 40k according to actual NPD data. Wouldn't include bundled MGS4 as units sold (but did for WiiPlay) - then pulled an aboutface during the middle of the comments section. Said sales spike for the PS3 was due to the Walmart rebate - LOL like all 400k units sold were at Walmart. They don't even report their sales data to NPD (he later admitted guestimating their figures). They're all jokes.
I could give a rats ass about VGChartz and it's undertracked, overtracked or null figures. I made a point about the submission pattern that is all. You guys can fight and bicker like little biatches over who has the bigger console epenis. I'm not here for that bullshit so don't try taking my comment and turning it into something it was never meant to be.
LOL! An eight year old console is selling the same amount of units as the 360.
yea thats crazy. 140m world wide.
David Reeves was quick to comment on the statements made by Don Mattrick from Microsoft who said that the Xbox 360 would sell more units PlayStation 3 overall. Reeves declared that "They won't in Japan. They won't in the PAL territories. So the deciding factor is North America, and that I can't comment on. I just don't know the figures. But I agree with Kaz. I think over a 10-year life cycle... I don't see it";and North America its the only deciding factor indeed and Japan and Europe and soon South America Region.
WOW ... FFXIII 360 is not effected for PAL.
and going and going and going........
you say you dont care about vgchartz but you clicked the link to get here and post your comment :p even with the numbers a little off 360 is having trouble beating ps2 in Europe indeed and ps3 beating it all over.
people who only plan on buying one console will buy the one that offers the most value even if it happens to be more expensive. As long as the price difference is small enough. MS need to start adding value whilst maintaining the price. A price cut should be the last resort.
