Wow a double in sales. and NCAA 11?!?!
good sales for everyone, too bad im not getting a dime from it.
Bu bu bu bu bu bu bu bu!!!!!!! All the PS3 fanboys say the PS3 is still winning worldwide!!! What happened?!?
this is OVERALL sales from release date.....slow fanboy...
lol They also believe PS3 can still catch up this generation. Obviously not the truth, seeing as Xbox 360 is bringin' the heat! PS3, do us all a favor and stay out the kitchen! You can't take it! Use your own advice and just MOVE before you get ran over!
dude ur a fanboy...your words mean nothing....and the PS3 doesnt need sales to catch up....it has the best software of 2011 in my opinion and 2010...gaems are all I care about. Games are all anygame shud care about
Finally built in wifi with 4gb. My cousin gave his old one away and bought the slim. When ps3 slim came out last year they did like 500,000. But none of this matter. We can't just count by weekly. It's a waste of time. Marathon guys it's over when the console discontinue so the ps2 is still king.
The console has always been cheaper and just got a new model you bunch of smart asses. And its still having its lead cut every fiscal report. Go die under an abandoned shack.
you got to be really retarded to believe vgchartz.com LoL
360 quadruples PS3 sales in EVERY COUNTRY lol, that's crazy good!
Really? And how exactly did VGchartz came into possession of such accurate European sales figures when even the manufacturers themselves have trouble getting those numbers? I distinctively remember MS announcing they had sold 10 million 360 consoles in Europe... Twice! They either guessed it or they generalized the UK sales figures. VGchartz has a long history of reporting wrong numbers and still, people on this site will never learn.
No one expected these sales to be so strong at E3 because really there was no hype around it. But there IS hype around Kinect. And all these new console owners are gonna wanna get that thing once the initial novelty of having a new 360 wears off. It's gonna be a freakin landslide this holiday.
Funny xbots... so now VGCHARTZ is reliable again? GTFO! Are we also going to forget that Microsoft is still the only one of the 3 reporting SHIPPED figures? When you release a console, you SHIP them to stores.. this means nothing. Go to your local store. Best Buy (I live in a major city) only sold 2, Future Shop sold 1, other stores similar. And this poor excuse for a website is run by the biggest fanboy online, who got kicked off neogaf for posting fake numbers and getting caught for being the fanboy he is, suddenly he has a website and you idiots fall for it. Morons.
They got the PS2 numbers wrong anyways: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... How can people still trust this site?
I swear to God, I just saw this type of article yesterday.
Ya what's up with so many updates on the sales, I mean we are having like hourly updates lol.... Ya I know Slim is selling good and congratz to MS for that, but getting hourly updates lol???
I expect to see a small drop of some time next month, but it will still be betting Wii and PS3. The only thing I see slowing the 360-s is if some massive failure issue springs up. The disk scratching rumor was not big enough.
Again, people fail to NOTICE that hardware is up 98%, but software is -2%. So 150K brand new 360S were sold, but no one is buying any games for them. Most of the Slim sales are rebuys. Again, there's nothing wrong with this - it's still a "sale" in the end. But this is why analysts are questioning the long term impact of the revision. The effect will cool off once all the old owners have one. The true test will be if there is a demand for Kinect and the associated games/ hardware in November. I don't know why I'm trying to make a sensible argument anyhow when 90% of this site are fanboys (from either camp) who don't even take the time to examine the numbers or read articles aside from a cursory glance at the headlines. I miss the Open Zone. This place needs it back.
the ps3 has gotten a massive sales boost since the slim, why are their software sales flat? could it be rebuys? millions of new consoles out there and the only game that topped 360 sales was ff13. theres 70 million wiis out there but software sales are still absolute ass. i honestly think all systems are nearing their saturation point. they're all selling but software sales don't reflect the increase. i think a large % of current console sales are from repeat customers (buying one for another room, replacement, etc).
Week to week they're either on par or above the 360s current software sales. I'm not trying to turn this into a "system wars" thing, but the 360 is getting long in the tooth and a 'refresh' - without a price-drop - ain't going to cut it. If you're looking for one specific title that boosts the PS3's entire software sales, there isn't one. There are numerous titles, across multiple genres and regions. The PS3's user-base is spread almost evenly in America and the EU with a sizable chunk in Japan as well. Whereas the bulk of the 360's userbase (over 20 million) are in America alone. If you're looking for proportionate software sales you're not going to find them in America.
I am somewhat curious, but how can you determine from those numbers that the software that sold wasn't to new users? There is no sales data that ties a console sold to a same receipt game sale. I'm not saying you are either right or wrong, but there is nothing that indicates that in either way. The only thing that really validates this or not is the tie ratio. That has dipped slightly, but it still is above 8.8 games per console. So even if there is a portion that are rebuys, it hasn't been enough to cause the tie ratio to drop significantly which I would expect if a grander portion of the sales over the last few weeks have just been rebuys. The tie ratio went from 8.87 on the 12th of June to 8.82 on the 17th of July so there is definitely a decrease, but not so much that I would write off the vast majority of sales over the past month and a half as just rebuys.
compared to 150K the week before, and there is no substantial uptick - in many cases a decrease - in software sales, what conclusions can we draw? A.) 150K people, some or most of which are "new" customers, have mysteriously stopped purchasing software for the system (this could be true if it was for one week alone, but decline SW sales are in fact a trend that has been in effect for a while now). B.) 150K additional people are purchasing consoles, but NO software to accompany those purchases. Answer "B" is the simplest and most likely. So why would people be purchasing consoles, but no software to go with those consoles? A reasonable guess would be because they already have software, as this is a second purchase. Not to mention that according to VGChartz, the EU accounted for 200K, ONE THIRD of total WW sales on the week where the Slim launched and software was DOWN by 7% overall. So in the EU alone, 150K worth of people bought a 360, but they bought LESS software that week than when 50K 360s were sold the week before. If what we have here isn't a case of old owners re-buying the system, then it's the greatest mystery since the pyramids. And again, it doesn't matter, a sale is a sale. But it's not expanding the userbase significantly, and that is a concern.
check it out after Halo reach to see how software sales are?
Its about time some sence was spoken on this site.
Wow the Xbox 360 actually beat everyone else worldwide even with japan numbers still being low.
I think it may be re buys 360 owners. when the ps3 and wii price cut happened there was a spike in software sales as well as older games making the chart again. curious as to the reason the 360 is not moving software above average.
No it's most likely because most Sony exclusives are First Party so they get a bigger cut of the sales for their games since they own the studios that make them. As oppose to Microsoft most of their exclusives are from third party developers so they get less of a cut of the money their games sale.
And what if it is? It doesnt detract from the fact that a sale is a sale even if it is to the same person. PS3 slims sold to existing users and it didnt matter then. It shouldnt matter now.
@blue7xx7, it has nothing to do with a "cut". These are not revenue figures, they are unit sales figures. I agree with trounbyfire, that it's kind of unusual that 360 has had higher sales since the new "Slim", yet the PS3 is outselling it software wise.
I think you don't really understand this console war! It is no about sales per se, but about installed base! It doesn't matter if you sell 100mil systems to the same 10mil userbase if they only buy 10mil userbase worth of games, developers will not support your console and it will be discontinued like the original XBOX and Gamecube. You've been here all this time and don't know this???
maybe you didn't read the part when i said this: when the ps3 and wii price cut happened there was a spike in software sales as well as older games making the chart again so it does matter if no new people are buying hardware. that means not many new people will buy software. but you just continue to think the world is out to get microsoft D BAG @SOAD really you want to use lifetime sales???? YEAR OF SALES ALONE @sshole. what i said that the ps3 and wii had a spike in software sales when they had a price cut and people were buying old titles as well. they were most likely hold out waiting for a price cut. NEW FIRST TIME PS3 OWNERS @ blue7xx7 WHAT that has nothing to do with it.
PS3 1,458,555 (+7%) 255,602,366 (7.09) X360 1,443,720 (-2%) 364,365,403 (8.82) Overall, the 360 has more software sales. It's just been down this week.
http://www.vgchartz.com/wee... Last week, and the weeks prior also notice the steady decline in sales since the Slim launch in July. Software sales have remained LOWER or relatively the same as previous levels despite the revision. Week 1 Hardware/ Software: (+85%)/ (-15%) Week 2 Hardware/ Software: (+37%)/ (+13%) - here we definitely have some new users cashing in on the old model reductions/ new revision. Week 3 Hardware/ Software: (-12%)/ (0%) Week 4 Hardware/ Software: (-20%)/ (-1%) - this week the 360 is almost back in line with the PS3 150K/ 130K respectively. Week 5 Hardware/ Software (+98%)/ (-2%) - here we have the European release of the revised model and another sales spike. And the trend will go down from there. If they can't sustain momentum in the States, I doubt Europe will be any better. Expect things to return to normal in a month. And 'overall' the 360 and it's software have been trending downwards, which is why all the analysts and whatnot are crying for a price-cut. The EMEAA accounted for If you're going to quote VGChartz as gospel, you should probably look at all the data that they provide. P.S. The uptick in sales shows just how strong the UK market is for the 360 though (82K), that's about 1/2 of their European sales from one territory alone.
Hey man, I was just responding to trounbyfire's assertion using the same source he used. What do you want me to do if VGChartz is the only source to go by? And I couldn't care less about 360 software sells declining. Halo Reach is coming out. Do I give a shit if some other studio's mediocre game doesn't sell well?
When it has neve been! .. Just keep doing strong... People arent buying games because they spent 300$$ in a Console!!
WOW, so many re-purse!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reported as spam for repeating the same post several days in a row. On a side note, it's nice to see you've minimized your sentences so that you actually sound somewhat coherent. I weep for the fall of the education system.
I assume Real Killer that when the PS3 Slim came out and it had the price cut and sales went up you said: "WOW, so many re-purse!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
360 sales have no equal
hahaha good 'ol labwrrior. 360 can't be stopped!!! muahahhaha
LOL! Rejoice! MS has defeated the evil menace Sony which once had a monopoly on gaming with their crappy controllers and outdated online/software! No longer! How does it feel to be riding in the Kaboose Sony? Everything you have on shelves is DEAD LAST! Heheheheh!
Good Run for 360 impressive, lets see if they hold next month, the gaming industry needs a boost in any form it can get it right now from any company
Still playing sales xbox fanboys? Not surprised...no games zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
<--- Slides in Mass Effect 2 then Alan Wake and Crackdown 2.
I'm going to assume that the gap between the 360 and PS3 is now further away again. now the Sony fanboys can go suck it for all I care for all the crap we had to put up with from them *****ing and throwing little hissyfits when a once called exclusive went multiplatform saying oh noez the game was gimped and will suffer due to the ****box 360 inferior hardware:I
LOL yea let's just completely erase the first 2 years of this generation from our memory banks. PS3 was the darling of the industry during those years, amirite?
how is the 360 selling more consoles but the software numbers are down? maybe something is incorrect.
Your logic has no place here.
Sony: 231,581,115 Microsoft: 41,302,898
does numbers are stupid don't you see is not about sony vs microsoft............is about 360 vs ps3! the company who sales more tech in the world is microsoft and apple so don't go there stupid!
lol all three Sony products are dead last.
Hopefully nobody adds the sales figures for Windows software because Eddyo3991 would probably have an epileptic seizure if he saw those totals...
Windows = 1 billion served
I have a serious and honest question. What's with all this talk about Microsoft widening the lead and "continuing" to outsell the PS3? We ALL know PS3 has been selling at a faster rate worldwide for what, 2-3 years? It wasn't until the remodeled 360 came out that Microsoft saw this worldwide sales bump. I know people are going to come with their phantom disagrees and their fanboy accusations, but I'm just being real. It has been a single month. Where is all this [revisited] PS3 failure and sales runner-up talk coming from? It doesn't make sense. Can we wait to see if it lasts before you all go lubing up for Balmer?
And it wasn't until the remodeled PS3 came out that the PS3 started consistently outselling the 360 worldwide. The gap then dropped from 8 million to 5 million units. Now in only the last few weeks, the 360 has outsold the PS3 by over a quarter million units worldwide, and that just includes two days of Slim sales in Europe. At the rate the PS3 was going, it would have taken until at least 2012 to surpass the 360's total sales, but now the PS3 is being outsold dramatically, this week being the biggest yet. So the gap is actually widening now, and Kinect, Halo: Reach, and the Arcade Slim haven't even come out yet. The point is, any hope of the PS3 surpassing the 360's total sales this gen has pretty much been completely shattered.
i have never been involved in a generation of gaming were three consoles did as well as three we have now at the same time. http://rlv.zcache.com/i_lov...
wow we have a winner because after 23,000,000 sold in 6 years xbox we have now 42,000,000 oh yes i think 360 won because i think by this time ps2 sold like 82,000,000 and ps3 just 34,000,000 i guesss!
I don't believe this one bit. vg....lol yup 2010 i guess is the new 07.
Unless the sales support Sony, in which case the graphics on that gap narrowing are awesome!
Take 6million lead the 360 had for a year it had been out longer and see who's in third. Use your brains.
These areticles are getting sickening. VG charts LOL. Agreed....take out the 6 mil units from the 360 year headstart, and M$ using consoles shipped rather than sold, then the PS3 would be far ahead. This harware boost will be short lived M$ so enjoy it while you can. The only argument 360 fanboys ever make are "we sold more" which in fact isnt true at ALL. Ps3 fanboys arguments usually consist of "we got better exclusives and blu ray". The last time I checked, those are valid arguments. lol Also, console sales don't mean sh!t, games are what matters and Sony's got lots of them. But it is hilarious when all the 360 fanboys go "ohh whut now ps3ers....teh exbox has sold morez than the psthree, ohhhzzz the ps3 loses this gen" haha
Hardware sales up software sales down? It can only mean 1 thing: 360 owners don't buy games.
Microsoft is smart to flood the market with different types of new 360S models..Arcade, 250GB,Kinect Bundle, and now the Halo: Reach Bundle the best yet. Which is why im gonna pick one up...
Don't you fanboys have anything better to do than troll around sales reports.How the hell does this affect you,the Gamer.Wii kills both consoles in sales,but would you trade your PS3 or 360 for a Wii...or better yet,stick only with the Wii this entire generation because it's doing so well sales-wise.
lol at xbox fan actin like 1,2 month of new console represent the whole year success
about getting another 360, but they hardly have any games coming out that i'm interested in except Halo: Reach. It seems that all the must have games are coming from Sony's camp. I guess having first party studios really pay off. That said, 360 is putting on a hurt in sales. Oh FYI, to anyone thinking ps3 slim were just people repurchasing. Uhhh, no, that would mean xbox360 would still lead in software sales. The Xbox360 S was the console we should have gotten back in 2005.
