New Super Mario Bros Wii, Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus dominate software sales as Wii sells nearly 1.6 million units in the weekly data for 6th to 12th December 2009.
the PS3 holding its ground!
It did well outselling the 360 by 170,000 last week according to these estimations. Wii however is doing spectacular. I must laugh at the doom and gloom articles that have popped up about Nintendo.
Vg's eu numbers for x360 are just 100% wrong It is very rare to find an X360 sku anywhere besides UK original Eu numbers could be ps3 - 750k x360 - 250k eu sales charts are released on gaf every week. last week ps3 outsold x360 5:1 in italy, spain, germany and france. also in Spain stores are not stocking x360 anymore
It's VGchartz so expect PS3 to be outselling the 360 by a MUCH larger margin.
lol @ wii figures, go nintendo. But what do they know, according to fanboys their time has come :S, you heard 'em nintendo, it's time to pack it in. I want to know when the console maker update their sales figures themselves, because nintendo must have sold 20 million console's this year yet all the charts still quote around 50-55 million mark that they were quoting at the start of the year
So let me get this straight, VGC over tracked PS3 and under tracked the 360 last month and now VGC is over tracking the 360 and under tracking the PS3 now, because there is no way to prove VGC otherwise WW?
Well, that's to be expected since VGCharts reports units sold and not shipped... /tongue in cheek
@iron sheik You don't have talk alot of crap. Of course the ps3 is outselling the 360 in Europe but of course tehy are still stocking it. I was actually in Spain 2 months ago and yes I saw many 360's in stores, albeit with a smaller shelf size than ps3 and a much smaller one than the wii. I highly doubt you actually come from Europe either and just talk rubbish abou Euro sales charts. Please give me a link of where there are figures showing the ps3 outselling the 360 5-1 in those countires (and not during the week with the slim releasing because I fully expect the ps3 to have outsold the 360 by 5-1 then.)
Wonder when Sony will realize that the continuing decline on PSP sales isn't a good sign?
Why would they worry ? Combined PS2 + PSP sales still exceed 360 sales. Two established platforms making profit for Sony.
Ps3-663,161 xbox360-493,893 "Sony’s PS3 is the only other format alongside Wii to show a year on year increase – sales up nearly 50% over last year. It is interesting to observe that PS3 and Xbox360 sales have effectively swapped places compared to last year, total “HD console” sales are fairly consistent, just that the ratio of 360 to PS3 has reversed"
It's VGchartz, so 360 numbers are probably inflated and PS3 numbers decreased.
Cry Moar Droids ......
why should we cry if we're winning?
LOL "We're winning" You dont even work for the company and you're probably more excited then sony. Who gives a crap how much each console sells. Its all about the games.
@above The same can be said about teh xboyz and you can't deny that xboy logic: "-this game doesn't sell like teh haloez, so is BAD" Unbelievable Delusional Fanboy Logic lol
then it is going to get competitive...why?? Because you have a w!! plus HD and a blu-ray/3d/dvd console.
You honestly think parents will buy ps3's for their kids just because of the sony wand?? when they go to the shop and the wii is cheaper + has a whole aisle of kids games, which one do you think they'll buy? EDIT: before everyone jumps on me, i'm not saying the wii is better value, but the eye wand will be marketed at the casual market, and they don't care about blu ray etc
@dchalfont They will because of 3 things. 1. Daddy wants to play too. 2. Their kids talk about the PS3. 3. Both parent want to be able to see HD movies.
If parents wanted a ps3, they would have one already, that's not to say they won't buy the wand, they probably will, but it won't sell consoles
"Plan on selling 4-5MM units WW." http://www.gamezine.co.uk/n... Those aren't the kind of numbers that sell PS3's. People often forget that Sony is known for it more niche products.
People buy Wii's for party games and Wii fits. No other console will deliver that. Not Wand, and not Natal. Both will be a failure. Combined with the "kiddy" image for the Wii, moms will continue to buy Wii's. HD consoles need more kids friendly contents. And PSFit or something.
NA = World Hmm, see how irrelevant NPD is when compared to the entire world?
Doesn't every country know that the world is North America !
It's funny how the bots sometimes argue: "Why do you care about jp or Europe data??? You don't live there!!"
they're probably all republican "we're american so we buy american products!"
Don't why the disagrees, but guys enough with that I can understand what are you saying but It seem like some comrades can't, so lets just leave this way
nintendo would sell a dump load more if they broung more different colored wii's like the past systems.still waitng on black(PS3 for the win)
I wonder what happened to that, all the information about the wii before launch said they would, they even had pics, having a lime green Wii would be green awesome http://www.wired.com/images... @madmonkey0 Touche
there is a black wii on sale in the uk already
Zelda:tp is the last nintendo game that i felt was more fun playing it on your own rather then in a party setting. Even NSMBwii was best played with a bunch of friends.
Don't we all...
jump in to 3rd place and multiplat city. :)
while it's inevitable that 360 will slide into third place...don't you think you should wait until they are actually in third place before you say that.
And the console war just keeps getting more and more interesting. A great time to be a gamer indeed.
that people buy a new Wii with every nintendo game they purchase. 1+ million consoles a week is insane
sony keep it up :D , again i state ''no ps3 Fan cares about sales None!!! its just so bots can shut their yaps and not use it anymore'' and that , and that only is why u see ps3 fans comment and get into sales news . chaps
"Butbutbut 360's winning cos of NPD!!!!!!!" Imbeciles.
PS3 and X360 sales basically switched from last year.
Tehhh Saleess!where are all those MS workers with there sales disk?
