Weekly Analysis – Slow start for Tekken, Wii leads hardware Tekken 6 sells nearly 450,000 copies in week one, Wii remains the top hardware as PS3 outsells Xbox360 by 54% in the weekly chart for 25th - 31st October 2009
ironically the ps3 outsold the 360 by what the 360's failure rate used to be...before they calmed the madness... this must be an omen of some sorts...or I might be impersonating a fanboy!?
.the omens are upon us its a sign i tell you....A SIGN ;)
Hahaha! sarah palin 2012! The ultimate Omen! That's actually quite the clever comment you made there, applauds.
I think there is a correlation here.
I'll remain consistent in my distrust of VGchartz. that said, I expect Sony to keep on outselling the 360 through the rest of the year. Unless the Wal-mart type deal becomes the norm, or MS makes Live free, I don't see 360 outselling PS3. Nintendo may also fall to second on a regular basis now. It's an exciting time for gamers as all these companies are fighting tooth and nail to get our dollar.
...also like others have said what is their reference point for the statistics they give on the increase? Come on!?
this and halo on blu-ray hmmm..
54% hahahaha, funny number ain't it? Anyways, the 360 really has lost ALL of it's advantages. It's time for the PS3 to shine.
I wish it was true, but lol VGChartz. TGSI
Good news, I own both platforms and love highly polished games.
Vgchartz is crap, it was completely wrong on the Halo numbers and its wrong about PS3 numbers.
100 million the 360 needs to sell in order to outsell the ps2:)
just don't take it THAT seriously!
a site that mistrack one consoles by 2 millions is not a good site at all. like they said, for entertainment purposes only
The Irony or maybe is the karma lol
Tekken was a big let down. The beat em up campaign sucks, having to beat the beat em up campaign to get characters to beat their story mode sucks, long load times suck, people being allowed to drop out of ranked online matches suck, paying 2 million dollars for a ponytail or having to buy the same shirt just to get a different color sucks, cheap boss characters suck, and so much more. The main fighting aspect of Tekken 6 is great as always, but there are just way too many problems with it to be considered a must buy.
"Tekken was a big let down." Hey, what did you expect? That's what happen when Namco wasted their time with a 360 version too, instead of focusing on making one version. Namco divided their resources so thin that Tekken 6 never had a chance.
huh. PS3 gamers really like those Fighting games. Either that or people with multiple consoles just chose the PS3 version... Edit: 250k for Forza is solid, Ratchet should be better than 100k though. That game deserves to be around 250-300k. Still though Im sure it'll do better when the marketing starts picking up. Also WOW @ Borderlands, I thought that was going to flop in sales. I myself would buy the game cause it looks awesome, but my hands are already tied with too many games.
Better d-pad I guess!
yup, the classic PS controller layout works great for these kinds of games.
Well the Tekken franchise has always been associated with Playstation. So it had better sell more on PS3 IMO.
Going to be an intresting holiday. Also great read!
Some huge, huge games on the way - you have to figure that Modern Warfare 2 will swing things back in 360s favour somewhat.
Of course, its the only game you guys have this holiday ;)
"you have to figure that Modern Warfare 2 will swing things back in 360s favour somewhat. " A multi-plat, I don't think it will sway it that much.
Good news for Sony, since the price cut and a slight marketing push they've been on a roll. Not surprised with Tekken though, sadly the game just hasnt seemed to have progressed. Just a note though, had it been the other way around and the headline had been changed to reflect that something tells me it wouldnt of been approved in that state.
I think ps3 owners might be related to jellyfish in sum way jellyfishes dont have brain and ps3 owners dont have one either
PS3 owners are not your mom. Plus it takes a lack of a brain to make a such a comment.
bless you my friend. just relax and watch PS3 fans enjoying themselves... we have reason too... and you?
Even though profits for the 3rd quarter fell to $3.57 billion in the 3rd quarter, sony managed to LOSE $4.7 over the previous year.
I don't see MW2 doing much for 360 console sale wise. I mean it is the sequel to the biggest fps this gen. I would imagine most already have one if they are looking forward to MW2.
The same thing was said about Halo 3:ODST. Then, when Xbox 360 posted big September hardware numbers, it was clear that Halo 3:ODST was a system seller. MW2 will move a lot of 360's even though it is multi-platform. EDIT @ below - September sales increased over 60% from the previous month, despite the supposedly more popular Arcade model remaining unchanged at $199. Besides, it wasn't really a price drop. MS went from $199/$299/$399 to $199/$299. The $299 Elite is the same as the $299 Pro was, just with a bigger hard drive. There is no way to know exactly how many consoles Halo was responsible for selling, but the sales increase and the timing of Halo's release would have to be an amazing coincidence to believe that Halo wasn't a system seller. Back on topic: If MW2 isn't expected to be a system seller, why would MS and Activision team up to produce a 360 MW2 bundle? Clearly, they expect it to sell hardware. EDIT @ below - Numbers supporting those games being system sellers are far less compelling than numbers supporting Halo. Also, the MW2 bundle has little additional value to a gamer who doesn't care about MW2. Someone who doesn't want MW2 is going to buy the $299 model, and use the extra money they save to buy a game that they really want.
Really? So how many console did ODST supposedly move or was the spike(if that's what you wanna call it) from all the price cutting that was going on? Edit: So since we use coincidence as a gauge, would I be crazy to call U2 a system seller or how about Demon Souls? MW2 bundle was done so people buying a 360 regardless of how much they want MW2, can see at least a little value in a 360. What person buying a console would pass up a system with a free game. Oh, and an extra controller. @below: Yeah because talking about something just oozes so much care right? [email protected] above: A free game is a free game. When I got my genesis, I had no clue what a Sonic or a Hedgehog was, but a game I could play as soon as I hooked up my console was a value I could appreciate even as a child. And as far as "those" games go, sales went up so I can say it was attributed to whatever I feel, cause it couldn't just be coincidence, right.
You both care too much. :/
You're right, but it's just for fun. Nothing that anybody says will change anything - I just enjoy debating. EDIT @ nolifeking - I remember the Genesis as well. Sonic was included with ALL consoles (after Sonic was released - before that, it was Altered Beast). In the case of the 360, there are different choices for different prices. I'll bubble you up for bringing up the Genesis, though - it's always been my favorite console.
Clearly, you like debating and you do it a lot. Maybe you're just a mass debater.
Ba dum tish.
...wait for it.
He's more of a dumbass-debater.
You'd need three promotions to be a dumbass.
acording to vgchartz (lol) sony sold in two weeks 500k consoles vs 310k x360, it's almost 200k gap ... in two weeks...
Or easier 100k per week now. Sustainable ?
^are you nuts?, it will do 1.5 MILLION on xbox 360 alone The PS3 VERSION will do 400k
xbots must hate that number
thats the Failure rate isn't it!!!! lol
BWAHAHA, you made me spill my coffee have a bubble...
54.2 to be exact... Oh wait... thats me! XD Haha. Sucks to be an Xbum.
$4.7 billion loss officail sony figures $4.7 billion >>>>>> RROD
My psn id is coreywebb93 i own a ps3 dont worry am a idiot like all off you
Just SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!!
You are an idiot that is uniquely all his own.
"of" not "off" sweety, proofread. Oh does your brain have a 54% failure rate too?
You really should just shut up. Its been established that you dont have a PS3, that account you have is fake (you dont need a PS3 to sign up for PSN). No trophies=no PS3.
I'm curious as to how you came up with that calculation.
Stealth edit eh
Hahahahahahahaha must be feelin pretty stupid to stealth edit. Good to know that you're actually thinking about what you type now. Scratch that, you don't think when you type.
Stealth? mmmm..... we are talking about MGS, but how he knows about stealth if he only shoot bashing posts as a old school FPS lol
HAHA, I have been busted. Yes I have. Smartass Bandit.
i see a 360 price cut incoming
at McDonalds with each and every single meal. Soon Microsoft cannot even give those Red Rings Of Death away for free anymore.
they would be better off giving you a free McDonalds with every 360, that would give you more incentive to buy one
Sorry to talk off topic, but do anybody else have Dragon Origins for the Xbox 360, cause I'm experiencing some serious framerate drops
I think that's common, it's supposedly the least favorable version of the game if what I've read is any indication.
PS3 outsells XFlops since 1 Sept 2009. IN ALL WORLD.
sony is really crap
spelt with a z = Guestimates ∴ vg charts = FAIL maybe I wasnt clear. While i believe the ps3 version of T6 outsold its 360 counterpart I dont feel vgc is a reputable source. The have put up a lot of fail since they came about plus they've been known to alter their guesses after the fact....just saying
comment = fail
Anyone know when NPD is coming out?
probably the following week. Sigh, seems like everything is coming out that week: LBP PSP 17th Star Trek 17th why???!!
