With weekly data for the week ending June 10th, 2007 now available for all regions, VGChartz collect it all together to compile a weekly summary of worldwide hardware sales and a breakdown by region. The data is given in the table below.
Ah that'll silence the Sony fanboys that were shouting that the 360 outsold the PS3 in USA, but the PS3 would outsell the 360 in Europe... Look at the numbers now dudes! 360 PS3 "North America 57692 14927 Japan 2637 9449 Total Others 28275 18675" Thus, 360 outsells the PS3 in USA 4:1, with about 45k extra In Japan, the PS3 does the same, but the actual sales are just 7k more. In Europe/other area's, the 360 outsells the PS3 by about 30%, 10k over the PS3. World wide, the 360 sells about double the amount of PS3's. OUCH OUCH OUCH it must hurt. And stop saying we have to wait. The PS3 is getting slaughtered and it won't get any better with Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Too Human etc. on its way! EDIT: Even funnier, in UK, originally a Playstation nation, the 360 outsold the PS3 by 3:1. My God. The PS3 is doing really, really bad.
but if VG charts is any sort of indication, it shows the 360 leading in europe, which most sony fans thought the exact opposite, still kinda hard to believe.
As any official way to track sales...but I have to agree with TheMart. According to VG charts....the Wii is kicking everyone's butts and the 360 is easily kicking the ps3's butt in regards to Hardware sales. Now in regards to software sales...the 360 is kicking everyone's butt. And isn't that what gaming is about anyway? Games? Interesting indeed...but I still don't trush VG charts. If anything, I think that the 360's lead is even greater than VG charts reports. I have followed that site for a while and its always been heavily pro Japan.
TheFart you never ever say anything worth listening to
nobody likes to hear bad news
.......here come the excuses holy crap....i thought the PS3 was doing good in the UK?
wait till e3 wait till home wait till mgs4 wait till ff 13 wait till...
I actually thought the PS3 was doing great in Europe... but by the look of things... they are also screwed there.
everyone can agree that the PS3 is not expected to sell more than any other console due to a lack of games and being more expensive. This is becoming rather like a weekly report that 360's break, Wii's get boring, PS2 is last generation and the sun will rise in the morning. Actually, I'm surprised there isn't a bigger difference between the PS3 and others, what with the lack of games, bad online experience, empty online store and high price tag. \/\/\/ Uhm, where exactly was I making excuses?
aww common man.....IIII could have made up a better excuse than that
reasons to buy a ps3 hmmmmm lol you guys are funny.
4D 120 FPS CG graphics in real time. ----------------------------- ---------------- and then don't deliver. I would like to introduce the PS3 to its new family. All the overpriced Hall of Famer's CDi, 3DO and NEO-GEO.
I have to ask: Did Sony ever speak of 120fps, or are you just bs'ing? If they did then that would be pretty dumb. I mean, it's not even like there's a load of 60fps games with very stable framerates... I also thought the PS3 was doing better in UK, guess it didn't for this week. Oh well.
said that the ps3 could dual output on two tv's at native 1080p with 120fps. It was with his 4D press speech.
...probably would have 120FPS on two TVs. They could use low polygon count tricks, less good quality textures, less things going, less lighting. Less... It's not impossible after all. That Forza Motorsport 2 everywhere (althought at 60FPS, 720p, 3 screens) are one example of the power of today game consoles.
"Krazy Ken said that the ps3 could dual output on two tv's at native 1080p with 120fps. It was with his 4D press speech." K, thanks for clearing that up. I was wondering where it came from. Curious to know who disagreed with me, PS3 or 360 fanboys? Maybe both. I was just asking a question, then relaying the info in the stats, but whatever. Idiots are idiots.
wow I new the ps3 was sellig bad but not that bad.
im not waiting anymore.
*edit* stupid comment removed. :)
Surprised by these numbers. I really thought the PS3 was doing better than the 360 in Europe. I don't know if I trust VGChartz anyway.. Didn't NPD just give them an email lashing for being so far out on their numbers?
How about the fact that the Wii is selling more worldwide than the Xbox 360 and the PS3 combined, and that the DS is outselling all three combined? It's funny that most of you are focusing on the 40k gap between the "big players" and ignoring the greater than 100k gap between the Xbox 360 and Wii, then talking about how Sony fans are making excuses. My bet is that I'll get a few replies loaded with excuses like "the Wii isn't next gen" or "of course it's selling more - it's cheap and a fad." Just buy the system you want and quit crying and gloating about which one does best overall. Or is your self-esteem so attached to which system is selling better that you have to fight this one to the death?
I don't think anybody cares if the wii is winning. wii is not winning because of the games, but because it bring a new experience to the table that non gamers can play. Also Nintendo marketting team is great and they managed to do what apple did with the IPod... "if you have one you are cool" it does not matter that the wii does not have games or is selling games... take a look at the game sales chart... now remove wii sport from it... tell me what games from the wii are selling more than the xbox 360? The wii can sell more console than anyone else... but it's not about the games... people that buy the wii will most likely not buy the games... look at the system attach rate... the wii will not have many of the great games comming to the 360 or the PS3... hard core gamers will play it for a few hours... once it gets repetitive... they drop it and move to a real gamer's console. Sorry but that's the truth... the wii does not need games to sell... you can tell when a console sell that well with the lack of games it currently have...
The system attach rate for the Wii is actually really high. Don't make the mistake of assuming that if it doesn't appeal to the "hardcore" gamers (you have your own definition I'm sure), it doesn't appeal at all. "Great games" to you may not be everyone's favorite. Many of the games released for the Wii are selling like crazy. There are always a few of them in the top ten (more than a few in Japan). And I'd be interested in hearing what it takes to be a "real gamer" since you have to have an Xbox 360 or PS3 to be one. Between 9 and 24, play for more than 6 hours a day, only interested in first person shooters... am I hitting it? IPod adds a number of things that its competitors are not good at (small, sleek, easy to use, etc). As does the Wii. Also, Nintendo has always created top-notch 1st party games. Many developers have stated that they are moving resources to Wii development so my guess is that you'll be seeing some better games in time (better than the ports the developers have created to cover for their failure to anticipate the success of the Wii).
