$ony Rulez

Hellz Yeah 1 mill

OtherWhiteMeat2793d ago

Hey Bungie...how much do you want for your Xbox ???? Guess trolling has become your full time job so I imagine you never use it.

Bungie2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

I aint trolling

dis news is good for da competition

M$ will have to counter that with more stuff for 360 owner and $ony will do da same

Godmars2902793d ago

Sony was already offering more. The Blu-ray player alone says as much.

Megan Fox2793d ago

VGChartz????
Last month they were off by miles. I think I'll wait for the real numbers.

deadreckoning6662793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

1. The people hating on Bungie should do a little more research on what consoles he has before making assumptions

2. Can someone please explain to me how and why PS3 sales in Europe or Japan affect North American PS3 owners? Just answer me that. I want to understand why I should care about PS3 sales that occur outside of the U.S.

3. Isn't Vgchartz biased according to PS3 fanboys? LOL, when the 360 sells more you guys call Vgchartz biased but when the PS3 sells more all of a sudden all of you just accept it, WTF.

"the same can be said for others here; why we care about sales in the US? The point is that sales for the ps3, even if they were coming from Mars, have an affect on Sony and therefore us gamers."

U didn't answer my question though. Stewgart u say that Japanese and European sales DO affect us in the States. So how do they affect us?

LMAO 6 disagrees, yet only ONE person was kind enough to try and give me an answer. If I'm WRONG then give me an explanation. This is SOOO typical, PS3 fanboys can't even answer my question so they resort to JOKES lol

This is actually phenomenal for sony ,gran turismo 5 is gonna do an even better job

lovestospoodge2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

so according to vgc, ps3 just surpassed xbox's sales in "others" does that mean americas the only place where xbox is in the lead?

darthv722793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

Is that right? Is the Ps3 really only 5mil+ behind the 360? Should be able to make that up in 2010.

Once it passes it...will these articles finally stop or will we have to be subjected to them until it passes the Wii?

AAACE52793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

Do you see them?

Whenever VGchartz says something they don't like, it's worthless! Now it does... they love it!

Fanboys are amazing I tell you.

Back on topic: Good news if true. The Ps3 is a good system and alot of people should be happy with it. I hope some of them get around to buying Uncharted 2 because it is a great game to own.

I'm glad all consoles are enjoying good sales, it only helps the industry more and provides us 'REAL GAMERS' with quality products.

EDIT: Come to think of it, this is probably true! I just remembered for the last few weeks, I would go to stores and noticed that all of their 120 Gb Ps3's were sold out and all they had left were the 250 Gb Ps3's. I didn't really pay attention to it until I was at Gamestop and overheard a call where someone was looking for one but they had none left.

So it could be even higher than that... especially with all the commercials that have been on coupled with the lowered price and more games... not to mention it's christmas time!

Vgchartz is useful to get a good basis for what the actual numbers will look like, but nobody should take them seriously. I don't think anybody can dispute that the PS3 had a killer week though.

BTW: Nice username, submitter. ;)

eagle212793d ago

Sony and Ninty look amazing last week. I know it's vgchartz but those are great numbers.

table2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

the same can be said for others here; why should we care about sales in the US? The point is that sales for the ps3, even if they were coming from Mars, have an effect on Sony and therefore us gamers.

example - if sales are strong in one market it gives you more leeway to focus on succeeding in others, like what microsoft has tried in Japan but unfortunately for them it hasn't worked out to great. Strong European/Japanese sales for the ps3 has helped Sony in trying to succeed in the US.

WXER = pot
Bungie = kettle

you get the idea

Bungie2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

@wxer

you shut up

Open zone don't count

@ deadreckoning666

oh i see ...you are one of those who thinks U.S.A is the world ... anything that happens in japan or europe affect us ... but then again ... you are just a fanboy

and another thing .. if the ps3 dont sell in europe or japan and its only selling in usa .. sony is doom ... so yes it affect us here cuz the more you sell the more games you get .. if sony cant keep on selling there are no more ps3 games .. in usa .. now go ahead and tell mom you learn something new today

Sir..u are a tard, plain and simple. Everythg u just said was WRONG. If PS3 doesn't sell in Europe and Japan then Sony simply loses market share in EUROPE and JAPAN. It doesn't affect Sony Computer Entertainment America AT ALL. Dude, 360 sales in Japan are CRAP. Is Microsoft doomed yet?? I thk not. The PS3 sold more than the 360 this year WORLDWIDE. Is Microsoft doomed?? Nope.

Its painfully obvious that you don't know what the hell ur talking about. Do some research.

"if sales in SCEE and SCEJ are strong it means they can allocated more funds to SCEA and vice versa if need be."

Yeah that makes sense.

table2793d ago

if sales in SCEE and SCEJ are strong it means they can allocated more funds to SCEA and vice versa if need be. They wouldn't just let a market go to waste. I don't know what you are getting so uptight about...

cmrbe2793d ago

and a happy new year.

sikbeta2793d ago

Awesome

+1m new PS3 owners, Welcome to the PS3 Gaming Crew

boodybandit2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

First off how are we suppose to research any further then his profile to see what console he does or does not own? I don't know his gamertags or real life name. So how are we suppose to really know?

And who cares what you, I or anyone owns? Does it mean because we own a product we have no bias for or against it?

Why don't both you and Bungie provide your gamertags for the consoles you own and I will confirm them by sending you guys messages or friends request. Mine is my N4G username and you can see them under my profile. It would be cool if N4G made everyone have to display their gamertags when creating an account. That way it would cut down on multiple accounts and weed out the non gaming trolls just looking for attention.

Microsoft Xbox 3602793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

Anybody can BS about owning a console. Telling me to research about him base on his comment history is just plain retarded.

first party exclusives would suffer if sony weren't making money in europe and japan (studios would close in these regions) which would have a knock on affect on what games would get released in america.

kewlkat0072793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

Same ol on here...Like I said those tend to praise whichever article/devs/review site/numbers/regions only when it suites them. complain, spin and crucify when it doesn't.

thatz howitiz...lol

DrWan2793d ago

Use your head my friend, These companies is a global business. Any one sector suffers would hurt the company. When you talk about economy, there is no such thing as regional or local economy anymore, you have to think global. Let me ask you one question, does gasoline price hike in the USA affects Europe, Middle East, and Asia? you bet. where did the gas came from again?? And where did your PS3 came from again?

Good you are finally using your head to think and try to pull that out of your ass from time to time and not be blinded by your fan boy glasses. All that I have commented on so far has nothing to do with any one console, all I am saying is global sales matters.

Oh by the way, i throw you another bone, A game like Uncharted 2 that's made in the US, are you trying to tell me only USA Sales matter? You are pretty stupid then, the more copies of the game they sell, the more royalties NG and Sony gets, and the more they can invest in their next game, be it Uncharted 3 or whatever, and that will directly affect you, a USA customer.

AngryTypingGuy2793d ago

The success of the PS2 really is astounding. You can't argue the success of something that stands the test of time, and the PS2 has done just that.
