Oh for the love of the god can we please just stop approving all this crap from VGChartz? They overestimate 360 sales.

uxo223674d ago (Edited 3674d ago )

Look how many people have reported this story as fake. This is crazy, perhaps "poor xbots" should be reported as spam.

Anyway, kinda stupid how worked up this guy is getting over this vgchartz info.

This story will not last, "THEY" will see to it that it gets removed. Kinda scary, that it bothers "THEM" so much.

Ben10543674d ago

just because 360 is selling more now, its fake

Wildarmsjecht3674d ago

The price reduction to bring out the new SKU is definately doing it's job to help the 360.

Playstation Man3674d ago (Edited 3674d ago )

But it's far too short term of a plan to compete with the PS3 long-term which still sold over 50,000 units in light of the 360 price-cut. This fall is going to be the telling the stat.

Then again, this is VGChartz, unreliable garbage.

Wildarmsjecht3674d ago

I agree. I don't see it being a consecutive weekly thing so that they'll sell 400k next month, but it's a nice little bump. But I don't believe it'll last long at all.

Dark vader3674d ago

Yea i expect the 360 to outsell the ps3 due to the firesale, but the question is by how much.

PooPooPlatter3674d ago

"The price reduction to bring out the new SKU is definately doing it's job to help the 360. "

You realize that those numbers are just some teenage Xbox fan typing numbers into a computer...right?

creeping judas3674d ago

can you prove what you're spouting about???

if you really feel that it's a teenager, then please prove yourself????

PooPooPlatter3674d ago

The kid who runs the site calls himself ioi. He use to post his fake numbers on console messageboards until he was permabanned for his garbage and went off and created vgchartz so he could continue putting out fake/inflated 360 sales numbers without interference.

People can't honestly think that some little website has the resources to:

1) Track retailers who sell console hardware and software

2) Do so in large enough quantity to get meaninful data and actually have stores willing to share their sales data with some little website or actually have the time and man power to visit enough stores across the country every week

3) Do all of this for essentially free for what NPD charges game companies for

4) And even more, do it for all major console regions. Something that even big paid for retail research firms can't do or handle

5) And finally and most ridiculously do it every week instead of every month like NPD does

It's just some little kid Xbox fan typing numbers into his computer. Make the 360 ones as high as he can get away with. Make the PS3 ones as low as he can get away with. Weeeee!!!

What a loser.

butterfinger3674d ago

To be fair, VGC can't prove one thing about any of their numbers:P Even if it's not a teenager, they are still made up numbers (estimates).

uxo223674d ago

So, way wasn't this kid making the 360 numbers higher than the PS3 for the past 3 or more months. Why would such a 360 fan only do it this week?

Stop whining.

DaTruth3674d ago

Because the NPD comes out and blows his numbers away. Which happens on the regular. Last 3 months he did say xbox was winning.

I can see people trying not to approve this story this week, especially considering VGChartz numbers have 360 2x the PS3 sales.

PoSTedUP3674d ago

VGcharts adds to the 360 and takes away from the ps3. <----thats was proven.

but i wouldn't doubt 360 out sold the ps3 cause of the price cut. ill wait for NPD though, i wanna see the real difference.....

Kleptic3674d ago

ah forgot about that price cut...or 'get rid of a SKU' tactic that Sony was made fun of last year...in either case, that would explain it...I was pretty much wtf'd when I first saw it...was wondering if FFXIII really had a crazy impact like that even though its 2 years away still...

InMyOpinion3674d ago

Yeah yeah, we know. It's fake as soon as the PS3 isn't winning, right?

krakdol3674d ago
