is there a reason the numbers are so rounded off?

Cyrus3653624d ago

It's the early estimate by Famitsu, they always give rounded numbers. Media Create gives like the actual numbers which will come on friday.

Kyur4ThePain3624d ago

Because it's made up rubbish.

morganfell3624d ago (Edited 3624d ago )

Somebody is a sore loser. Not you Kyur but there are some people having a fit.

PimpHandHappy3624d ago


because these are just a guess

these like all other VGchart numbers have no base in fact

Cyrus3653623d ago

Actually then numbers comes from Famitsu, not vgchartz, so it'll be pretty close.

Ps3 crushes 360 again

Kush_Reaper3624d ago

This is a hammaring not that 1000 extra cosoles the 360 had when it gained a little spike. Fact is the ps3 just needs the games the japanese want and BOOM there goes the competition.

When the 360 manages to get 3 games in top ten and hold that position for a second week, then xbox owners can come and have a proper converstion in here lol.


darthv723624d ago

did the ps3 drop something like 13,000+ consoles from last week and the 360 go up 3,000+?

morganfell3624d ago

Kush, that is one hell of a byline there. I definitely like it.


0verdrive3624d ago

i suspect its becomes ps3 had a huge launch week last week, gta4 + lbp, and 360 has this "value pack" whatever that is this week.

Snukadaman_3624d ago (Edited 3624d ago )

Man you people crack me one care to comment on the huge drop in lbp sales...or were the numbers not added for the sweet sweet tears that will went from 67K to 17K. Get one of these morons to admit the ps3 and the xbox are on the same boat to nowhere in japan......never.

darthv723624d ago

Maybe it dropped because it wasnt quirky enough to hold their interest.

Just because something sells well in one region doesnt mean the same results in other regions.

tortella3624d ago

When WKS is launched PS3 will outsell x360 100:1

This stupid bastard still belives that x360 is alive in Japan

PS3 will crush x360 during the launch of Gundam Musou 2 later this month

x360 costs lesss than a PS2 in Japan --ROFL

xaviertooth3624d ago

im thinking that the 360 sold only 5k that period, so it could be a promotion of sort like buy one get one, whatever.

i mean that piece of shiit is like a freebie nowadays, still it cannot be sold!

Ps3 continues to sell well in japan(was there any doubt?). Definately goog for sony to have 3 games in top ten. Guess the ps3 isn't going anywhere. 360 not doing bad too.


Captain Tuttle3624d ago

Yeah, the previous 10 months were full of a ton of doubt. These numbers aren't great for the PS3 either...a big improvement but nothing earth shaking.

Kush_Reaper3624d ago

And what doubts would that be? Sony knew they made mistakes and have ironed them out. And lately they've been doing well sales wise with the help of a strong software library so you tell me what doubts they have now?


AAACE53624d ago

That was an unbiased comment right up until you just had to throw the fanboy in with the... "PLAY BEYOND NOT BEHIND" comment.

I'm glad Ps3 and 360 are having decent sales and all, but as long as the Wii, DS and PSP continue to sell loads more that the two... those numbers really don't mean anything!

And like everyone always says on here.... These are VG charts numbers, so they are nowhere near accurate!

In the future, I hope the Ps3 and 360 both have higher sales so they can draw in more developers who would otherwise make a crappy Wii game.

MAiKU3624d ago

and no 360 game in sight

Raoh3624d ago (Edited 3624d ago )

Go ps3

its your birthday

mrdxpr23624d ago

uhh not until a couple of weeks..cant wait hope sony throws something special on psn for it :) 2 years and the ps3 is only 5 mill behind MS and gaining ground...
