But I thought sales didn't matter, because Alan Wake sold like crap and the 360 has been getting outsold by the PS3 year after years? Just like Metacritic doesn't matter anymore?
Your right sales don't matter that much, but when people such as yourself start saying silly things like the PS3 will surpass the 360 WW things like this need to be posted to set you straight. As for AW, 500K isn't amazing but is decent for a new IP with not advertising
You seem mad. Anyways I'm surprised the Xbox 360 slim had that big of an effect since it technically wasn't a price cut. All it was just more features added to it. I didn't expect it to start selling like it is. It really has done wonders for the Xbox 360 considering it hasn't been released in Europe yet until the 16th I believe it's doing great everywhere else. It's sold out in most places I visit it's backorder so supply is limited right now.
Is it available worldwide or is it still in the US for now?
This "sales boost" has very little to do with the slim and more to do with the discounting that microsoft is doing on the older unites. They have cut prices by 50 bucks on all models and that alone was enough to spur most of these sales. Once the older units are gone and the dust settles the 360 will fall back into the same ole and being outsold world wide by the ps3.. Oh as a fun note this jump in 360 sales is mostly thanks to the american market.. Its still being outsold in japan and all other regions.. Lolz poor 360 has to use smoke and mirrors to have you believe that its still beating the ps3.. Sad really..
@darthv72 Slim is available in the US and Japan as of now. Sold out in both regions. Europe is soon.
EXTREME! 1 MIRRION TROOPS!!!
there the vid of ppl who not seen it.o yer put CC on
Hmm, instead of 'lol'ing at vgchartz, maybe you could do something about it and find a better source for worldwide sales data. If you're that sick of vgchartz, FIND a better source, if there even is one. At the moment, vgchartz is the best indication of what the worldwide sales data might be, until official fiscal data comes through. Yeah, we all know its not fully accurate, but unfortunately its the best we have for the mean time. Even if its not 100% accurate, it interests me to see what the ballpark figure is, and i get sick of people going "lolz teh vgchartzzzz". If you dont like the site, do us all a favour and find a better one
I found this, but it's missing alot of media create data, and some numbers from canada and UK http://vgsales.wikia.com/wi...
Well said. I use VGchartz simply because its the best i have offered to me right now. People need to realize that as you said. Yeah, it may not be 100% accurate, but at least its close. If there's something better out there. Let me know via PM.
Lmao rawr goes the PS3 defense force. Wonder what's their next excuse.
Shortages. There's always something or someone to blame for Sony's failures.
those who live for sales (americans mostly) can sleep better at night again for a 2nd straight week. just play the games and stop caring about sales of plastic boxes. better yet how about you go out and buy alan wake which is a pretty good game.
Alan wake was mediocre. I only played about an hour and a half before I became bored...
well that's you opinion. you don't speak for those that actually liked/loved the game. you sure as hell don't speak for me; i have a mind of my own to determine whether i like a game or not.
PS3 only third in America....and America right now has NO money. SO idk where the sales come from....
u talking crazy
Uh, when America doesn't have money, the rest of the world is in the crapper.
good for M$ and the 360 s models not even out in PAL regions yet.....
They are in Aus
it's funny, slim has sold so well it's been out of stock all year, outselling 360 the entire time week for week since slim launched. 360 slim launches and A) it's seeing nowhere near the kind of sales ps3 slim saw when it launched B) it's sales are already falling back off again, especially in Japan and C) at this rate by the end of the month PS3 will be back on top again. When ps3 slim launched, it was outselling xbox by a matter of hundreds of thousands of units per week, and even outsold wii in certain instances. 360 slim launches, and it barely edges out PS3 (in comparison to slim's stomping of 360 when it launched, 60k is next to nothing). Hardly anything to celebrate over. If anything, it's embarrassing to see it falling off so quickly when it didn't even get that far ahead to begin with. The 360 slim dropped in sales by more than 30k units since last week alone. That's 1/3 of the difference in sales it had over PS3 lost in one week. 2 more weeks and things will be back to even, 4 more weeks ps3 will be right back on top again. might want to hold off on popping that champagne cork... But of course, when that time does come that's when VGChartz will start becoming unreliable again.
are you butthurt bout it
errm yeah its been out for about a week in usa and japan, it hasnt come out in europe yet either
ps3s last in sales but we all know who wins in quility 3D blu-ray gaming god of war3 uncharted2 motorstorm3 franchise heavy rain GT5 socom4 demon souls killzone2 and so many others free online so we dont pay another $300 at the end of the gen browser u can share movies music and themes from free games every month with psn plus next gen rumble in the controllers bluray makes it really hard to scratch a disk i have never done it since i had my ps3 and i had 8 copies of gears from that 10% failure rat is normal so we dont have to worry i leave my ps3 on for 2 days stright i have to turn my 360 off every couple of hours and please nobody say "but we have xbox live"...but YOUR PAYING TO PLAY ONLINE and dont give me no ur paying for the features b/c u can use most the features as a silver member only thing ur paying $300 for in 6 years is to unlock the other 50% of the game u just spent $60 on...
I just hope before all the flame wars begin by the fan boys. That everyone should notice that every device on the world wide hardware has had a drop in sales from previous week. If they all have dropped then thats not a good thing for the entire industry..
Psh, Sales mean everything, if they didn't most game may not even exist, lol.
Then Mass Effect 2 is the king and its only on Xbox 360. if we go for sales than Black Ops and Halo Reach on 360 will crush Ps3 Exclusives since Day 1 All together... Just saying...
Since when is Mass Effect 2 a 360 exclusive ? It's on PC too, and better.
GT5 will outsell Black Ops (PS3 sales only) and maybe even Reach
its not gonna happen sorry
i hate halo....but fact is its gonna push millions
Game deserves better sales. (repeating what 360 fans said about Uncharted 2)
Both ME2 & UC2 deserve better sales
Sold like crap too, for shame cuz it's such a quality title and yea it's on the PC too bud ;) not exactly an 'exclusive' a 'console exclusive' more like it
How does "console exclusive" make sense anyway? Wouldn't that mean it's exclusive to consoles ONLY? Should we call it a "PC Exclusive" just because it might not be available on Mac or Linux as well?
That 5mil gap is getting smaller every day.
I hate to burst your bubble buddy, but ME2 is also on PC.
So why did I play Mass Effect 2 best version on my PC ? That's the problem you see, your "360 exclusives" are available on my PC, therefore they're not... exclusive at all. On the other hand, the PS3 exclusives are just that... exclusive, as "not available except on PS3".
You are WRONG! lol if you look again bud then you will see that mass effect 2 and uncharted 2 have the exact same metacritic score. So on that note if you wanna go by metacritic then grand theft auto has both games beat with a 98 which makes it the highest rated game on either console.. As far as sales go all it shows is that 90 percent of the 360 market are shooter nuts who buy anything with alot of guns. Argue all you want but the two best selling games on the console are shooters. Sony doesnt have any games that get near those numbers with the exception of modern warfare 2.. But sony has a slew of games that sell well above 1 million which is the benchmark in determing a successful game in terms of sales... So before you spew your "verbal diaharea" again just stop.. You only succeed in makin yourself look naive and fanboyish...
Mass Effect2 is a 96 with 98 reviews Uncharted2 is a 96 with 105 reviews when u have more reviews its a better chance your score is lower not to meantion only 7 sites with "playstation" in it has reviewd uncharted and gave it a 94 and up but mass effec2 has 11 sites with xbox in it 94 and up did metacritic try to boost up the score of ME2 by adding sites that were automatically going to give it a high score? and at that giving it LESS reviews when we all know how popular mass effect and xbox360 are? so why does sonys uncharted2 have more reviews? dont go by metacritic... and sales dont matter its the gamers who see the quility and every console wiis quility motion ohh wait sonys doing that in HD and with better accuracy so nintendos out microsofts is xbox live and gears of war ohh wait uncharted2 lags less and has a GREAT story and beautiful color and psn is free sony even throws free stuff at u with psn plus microsofts takes yours money but wait its worth it? would u really pay for it if u can already play online for free on 360? b/c i had a 360 and if that was an option i wouldn't pay for cross game chat and cross game invites and party chat lmao noboy talks on that thing anyway they just scream and argue
i just do this to shut up fanboys... i hope Gt5 and Reach sell 10 Milions plus... Good sales , more games.
Fanboys will never shuttup. Best to just point and laugh.
man ur a fool.as least be real and not lie
i don't understand why people care about the sales of the systems when we all know that neither of the 3 companies will be leaving the business anytime soon. check out the great games i've played this year so far God of War 3 Heavy Rain (favorite game on PS3 this year so far) Alan Wake (favorite game on 360 this year so far) Splinter Cell Conviction 3D Dot Game Heroes Mass Effect 2 (360) Battlefield 2 (360 single player only) ModNation Racers Final Fantasy 13 (PS3) (love it, don't care what others say) Red Dead Redemption (PS3) WKC (liked it) Dante's Inferno (PS3) Bioshock 2 (360) MAG Star Ocean (PS3) Lost Planet 2 (PS3) Bayonetta (360 did not like this game at all) Darksiders (360) GTA Liberty City Stories (PS3) as you can tell i pretty much don't care to be a single console owner. i love games and each system has games that i want to play.
how the hell do you find time to play all these games?o_O i mean i own only ps3 and i struggle sometimes with playing all games i want to.that's also the reason why i won't buy x360( i'm not interested in Wii) because i have no idea how i would find time to play,well,more or less twice as many games o_O
Will allways be huge. Next Gen Xbox Brand will Destroy Nintendo in Americas.
Too bad the 360-S is selling out so fast msft can't keep them on shelves. They're back ordered in many places for weeks. This news will slip through the cracks and tomorrow when somebody mentions this news PS3 fanboys will say not true got a link
Sad to see the ps3 struggling lol.
360 (-16%) Ps3 (-4%) Who's struggling? The way I see it, the sales spike of the 360 S novelty is already dying down. And I'm not the one saying it, it's the consumers... -16%.
September 14th fast approaches.
moron, it's just people re purchasing hardware. They aren't bringing in anyone new. Worldwide weekly Software DS 1,935,631 (+36%) 562,461,236 (4.28) Wii 1,931,620 (0%) 495,912,074 (6.85) PS3 1,525,810 (-4%) 253,738,258 (7.10) X360 1,490,391 (0%) 363,135,162 (8.91) PSP 457,812 (-12%) 163,605,377 (2.78) PS2 195,351 (0%) n/a PS3 is pushing more software numbers than Microsoft. which is where the money really comes from. i also think it's pretty bad because 360 has the install base of 20 million people in America alone yet, they've only moved about 300k in 2weeks. that's only 1.5% of it's install base in America
I'm sorry I fail to see your point. Are these non-new people spending old money on the new xbox S? No... so sales of new systems to non-new people... equal sales at the end of the day regardless. And as Halo Reach and the holidays approach is that going to be your same argument on the matter of xbox S sales?
Let's see if the 360S can hold this momentum.
Let the war begin….
In the end there will be only MAN FURISMO !!!dont forget
Well done to the DS! Best selling hardware. Oh wait... I don't think Zir0 wanted me to focus on that. *looks at article picture*
I just put all my money in halo reach will sale better than every game that ps3 put in the street in that month together and will almost double the sales of gt5 witch i will buy!
Whoa gt5 is among the best selling franchises of ALL time. Just because halo 3 had a runaway success on 360 no way implies it will sell that well again.. Just look at gears of war sales versus gears of war 2 or mass effect to mass effect 2.. Neither of the sequels met or exceeded the originals sales. Implying that alot of people bought the original on curiosity and then a good portion didnt buy the sequel.. Gran turismo on the other hand has outsold its predecessor with every sequel except gt4 which only sold 10.8 million whereas gt3 aspec sold 11.8 million.. That speaks volumes to just how much more popular gt is as a franchise then halo..
the new 360 is kicking some ps3 asses.......lol!
Actually, it's highest point was last week and now it declined significantly. It really doesn't look like the new 360 can hold too much water. There was a huge decline in Japan this week after almost surpassing PS3 over there. It doesn't even look like EU knows that there's a new 360.
"It doesn't even look like EU knows that there's a new 360." Lulz at you, it's not even out in the EU yet.
I just got a call last night and picked up my preordered 360S. Nobody has any of them in stock locally. Not trying to defend MS here, but if they are sold out or "not available online" at a few major retailers i checked, then its certainly going to have a effect on how many are sold right? Im not sure the EU has even gotten the 360S yet.Isnt its launch date like the 16th? As for Japan.I dont understand the fascination here with Japan sales. Take a average week with no new SKU releases,no new Pokemon game launches,etc and the combined sales of all consoles are often less than 360 or PS3 sales in the U.S. alone.
The trolling here is insane lmao.
Yes it is, my friend. Better to just put on the asbestos tuxedo and stay out of the way in a thread like this one.
YEAHHHH DEATH TO PS3 YEAHHH... wooo. Ah, now if you excuse me, I have a life to get back to. ^______________^
wow God of War barely beating out ODST something's awry...
