This is almost exactly the same as the one vgchartz did last week. PS3 out sold 360 world wide for second year running, wii sells less this year,

no real suprise IMO

zeeshan3267d ago

Oh look, it is VGCrap again!

WildArmed3267d ago

yeah. =/
Kinda what VG Charts releases everytime.

Great to see Ps3 going great.

The Meerkat3267d ago

Wow.

At that rate the PS3 will have won this generation by 2014.

FarEastOrient3267d ago (Edited 3267d ago )

I like to see how VGChartz is making up numbers again... The numbers are again not backed up legitimate resources like NPD and MediaCreate and still try to paint an overall brush over the industry.

For example how is the Xbox 360 gaining world market share when it is being outsold by both the PS3 and the Wii. The numbers of consoles sold for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 do not match my share holder's reports from both companies. Actually VGChartz has them selling less than what the companies are stating, especially when Xbox 360 sold over 6 million units in 2006 and roughly similar numbers following it the next couple of years.

I'm not going to dispute that the Wii sales are down, their numbers are actually lower than what is shown while ignoring the increase from both the price cut a Wii Sports Resort.

FarEastOrient3267d ago

In addition look at the time period they posted on the article. October 3rd for 2009, Media Create presents data to the 4th of October and NPD hasn't even posted the official tally for September yet.

@ fareast,

on thing i noticed was that the have uk ps3 sales at 2.3million.(ish)

but about amonth ago sony said they have sold 2.5 million in the uk.

freeblue3267d ago

didn't VGchart pull the same trick last year? week after week, it will show xbox sold more than ps3. even in week there are very very close, xbox still sell more than ps3. but right at the end of the year when the Real sell number has to come out.

for one or two weeks it will show Ps3 magically Sold way more than Xbox for the entire year total. and the article then magically will be gone. VG chart will then be back to their ps3 sells sux, xbox rulz.

Vag chartz are at it again I see

though good to see the PS3 has been on a 70% increase, I bet it's much higher though

thedisagreefairy3267d ago (Edited 3267d ago )

the ps3 is outselling the 360 this year and last?

i thought all the fanboys on this site said the 360 is raping the ps3 and all the websites kept saying the ps3 is doomed cuz its sales were horrible.

wtf is going on around here?

the internet Gods are messing with my head

-edit- i lost a bubble from a joke...damn

WildArmed3267d ago

BUTTZ BUTTZZ BUTZZ THE TOTAL SALEZZ OFF LIFEETIMMEEE lol

+bubbles.
Yeah N4g can be mean bro

bjornbear3267d ago

I know..the reason is due to the year head start, which made a difference in consoles shifted around.

But PS3 is one of the fastest sellin consoles ever, and it keeps selling =) And with FFXIII and GT5, it will sell heaps more =)

Still the Wii is untouchable xD

StanLee3267d ago (Edited 3267d ago )

It's funny how VGChartz is always suddenly a credible source of information when that outcome is positive for the PS3.

Edit @ below

Oh, I'm not disputing the numbers. It's the hypocrisy I can't take.

man0fsteel3267d ago

its the predictions that are far from being credible, not the hard data that already took place

BISHOP-BRASIL3267d ago (Edited 3267d ago )

Actually, by official reports, PS3 have outsold 360 in 2007 and barely outsold 360 in 2008 (could be a match by the ongoing error margin). Now all numbers point at PS3 outselling 360 again in 2009.

I think the outselling is not disputed by fanboys from any side. The thing is by how much and when this much will push PS3 ahead of 360 sales. I believe that inicial advantage 360 had was cut by somthing around 3 to 4m by now, but I don't have the excact number (neigher do care).

Anyway, this a bit stupid, the money the companies are making don't come from console sold... Even considering software, support, accessories or what not, I'm not getting a cut :( so whatever floats your boat is ok by me.
