Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle held a sold out status at Best Buy Co. Inc.'s online division on high demand for the product.

"VGCHARTZ the controversial website infamous for releasing FAKE numbers have been busted once again. They were caught inflating X360 sales by a WHOPPING MILLION units

NPD has released the Canadian and US LTD and YTD numbers

According to NPD

X360 is at

10.2m in USA and 840,000 in Canada at the end of June 2008

so TOTAL NA X360 sales = 11 million

PS3 is at 4.9m in USA and 484000 in Canada

so TOTAL NA PS3 sales = 5.4m

http://www.canadianbusiness...

VGCRAP has X360 sales at 12.1 m

so a DEFLATION of 1m units

VGCRAP has PS3 at 5.46m

so a DEFLATION of just 60,000 units

Edit: -Vgchartz sales here http://www.vgchartz.com/ "

Wow, you ARE posting this everywhere....

We all know VG chartz is bogus...but seriously...you would think they molested you as a kid or something.

Wildarmsjecht3638d ago

They got it wrong. It's not the same 80 gig due to lack of ps2 emulation, but they doubled the space of the 40. Keep pumping out those 80 gig bundles and you'll see it be sold out over and over and over again.

pwnsause3638d ago

im not surprised. that is a amazing bundle.

Silogon3638d ago

Lies, my best buy has 30 of them; if not more. I'll take a picture tomorrow and post it up here for proof too. Remember I said this.

"Sold Out Online" you dumbass

Silogon3638d ago (Edited 3638d ago )

I can see you're bothered by the PS3's sitting in the Best Buy where I live. You had to make sure everyone knew it was "online" only. Yes, I was informed that it is only online that they are sold out. I gotcha and apologize for my past comment, that is very true.

Edit to below:

How the hell am I gonna constinatly use my friends Ps3 to prove I have one? When I get a message from one of you Dong bangers I always reply back with a quick message when I am logged on. Unless my friend lived in my living room I don't think that's possible.

Playstation Man3638d ago

The only man so committed to putting down PS3 (despite using his friends to prove he has one) and promoting the 360 that he'd drive all the way to best buy to prove one's still there or in his imagination already to have been there to confirm it.

Douche.

r2kcipher3637d ago (Edited 3637d ago )

well where i live i drove and called every where looking for one of these with no luck. then finally came across a best buy and they had 17. so he is probably right. i think best buy gets more shipped to them or something. because they were the only ones with the slim ps2 when i needed one too.

but then again at the best buy i was at. they were giving out tickets. and when u brought the tickets to the front they would get them out of the office behind customer service. and its pathetic how u counted them. lol. when i called they told me they had 17 left and they couldn't hold one for me.

Seem to be selling out everywhere they get restocks of this MGS4 bundle. I think alot of people underestimated just how much of an impact MGS4 is and is proving that it can move major units of hardware alone. Great job Kojima and staff on delivering a masterpiece. :)
