PS4 sold more than the other 2 combined, nice

trunkswd967d ago

Better than the Wii ever did. Wii never hit 50% marketshare.

What are you talking about?. Wii sold more than ps3 and xbox 360, the wii sold over 100 million

Spotie967d ago

Marketshare. Read, people. Damn.

thekhurg967d ago

Impressive xbox one guess from VGChartz. Microsoft hasn't even announced 10 million consoles sold yet have they??

All they've touted is 10 million shipped to retailers.

mikeslemonade967d ago


Wii was $250. PS4 got way more legs than the Wii.

XisThatKid966d ago

Lol there's still more Vitas than Wii Us in the world per VGchartz. I for one think it's just a popular opinion that there numbers are normally wrong honestly.

True PS4 outsold both wii u and xbone combined, yet some people are disagreeing with you? It's simply math really

XanderZane967d ago

Probably because it's VGchartz and everyone knows their figures are never accurate. I still wouldn't be surprised if it's true though. Whatever the case, it won't hurt the success of these game consoles. The Wii was millions ahead of the competition as well, yet the XBox 360 and PS3 still were very successful.

XisThatKid966d ago

"Competition"it' s very subjective when talked about regarding Ninty. They're not competing with other market leads when they're not sure if a product is going to be successful. After it succeeds then acknowledge competitor? What kind of option select is that?
Nintendo claimed they were not directly competing in the market race with its peers. Fans all clamored behind those comments. Now that the Wii was a runaway success, now it was a competitor?.
Nintendo has a nice way of painting themselves in a positive light no matter what they do especially to Nintendo fans. One will always seem to "win" if your racing yourself.
Sorry I just don't think this is ok that's all

Pretty crazy. XONE is doing pretty good too at 12, almost 13 million.

Also, dat black bar to the left is the 4th platform....MOBILE! Its ONLY GOING UP BRO!

(my one troll for the day)

PS has a extremely consistent rate of folks returning to buy PS consoles, XB also is starting to get that trend as XONE is also selling better then 360 currently. Sony is the most consistent at selling at a very high rate. 4 consoles all over 80 million each gen is a just a huge marvel. (don't know what PS3 is at currently)

FriedGoat966d ago

Nobody even knows how well Xbox One is selling, MS has only announced shipped to retailer figures so far.

xXSilentXx966d ago

You know that the Xbox one is one year ahead of ps4 so pretty damn good?... I don't think so

Nathan89966d ago

@ silent

They came out 2 weeks apart. Not a year. Wii U released 1 year prior.

UKmilitia966d ago (Edited 966d ago )

what i dont get is MS have never said they have sold 10 million ,they said they had shipped 10 million but that wasnt sold.
i find it hard to belive they didnt annoucne 10million.

Either way i cant see it catching ps4 now,i want it to start to because i dont want Sony to become lazy and they need that kick every so often imo.

also this site is always saying ps4 sold less than it actually did and over counting xb1 numbers so i wonder what offical is.

what i dont understand is how Vgchartz own estimates shows that PS4 outsells Xbox, 3 to 1 globally month in and month out, and yet the total never reaches 2 to 1. Not that it matters but still im curious.

lastking95967d ago (Edited 967d ago )

They're constantly under tracking. At this point they're just guessing. Remember when they had xbox at 6 million for months then MS confirmed around 10 million shipped and they boosted it to 8 million the very next week.

Jamaicangmr967d ago

Brutality... *MK Announcer voice.* Just playing damn good to see everyone doing amazing numbers.

Long Live Console Gaming.

kakashi81967d ago

I swear the Wii U been at 9 million since
It's actually not even funny though.

SilentNegotiator967d ago

I don't expect things to get much better for Wii U with Nintendo practically talking like the thing is already in the past and already teasing the next console.

benji101966d ago

The ps4 was at 22 million in January so... Lol.. It finally hit 23million.. every one accepts that the wii u sold like crap.. What has happened to the PS4 this year.. selling like crap. It will never make 40 million at this rate and that is a disaster for a company that has no money.

Denny_Crane966d ago

Ps4 will sell 40 million before X1 or wiiu. Xbox announced 10 million shipped in November so it took 8 months to sell 2 million systems with heavy discounts & multiple games bundled in.

PowerPlayaaa966d ago

If you think the ps4 selling like crap.
What about the Xbone then?
Have you thought about that? ;-)

Need more salt?

FallenAngel1984966d ago (Edited 966d ago )

PS4 was at 18.5 million at the begginning of the year. The console managed to sell 4+ million so far this year. That's about half of what Wii U has sold in its entire 2.5 years on the market. So your damage controlling failed seeing how PS4 just reached the 22 million mark in May
