interesting...
wii sports and sports resort are neck and neck. I would think since sports resort came out the regular one would have dropped off considerably.

Maybe vgchartz will start tracking sales of move and kinect like they do 360 and ps3.

I think the PS3 chances of catching the 360 are very slim now...
I don't know about you guys, but now that Little Big Planet 2 got delayed, i feel like the PS3 is fading away this fall. Multi-plats continue to struggle, Dead Rising 2 framerates are bad and screen tearing is awful, NBA 2K11 lacks anti-aliasing, we all know about Mafia 2 etc etc. I think the PS3 will continue to lose ground. Ain't looking pretty for Sony :(

If Gran Turismo 5 doesn't change this trend, nothing will.

And i believe sales doesn't translate into quality, but from a business perspective, developers will continue to favor the more popular console, the 360.

Multi-plats struggling? Sure the PS3 version of multi-plats don't look as good as the 360 versions, but guess what? they are still the same game.

Same gameplay, same story, same missions, same setting, same fun factor.

The only way you can really judge how good a system is (game wise), is by it's exclusives and this is where the PS3 outshines any other platform out there. 360 is far far behind regarding quality exclusives, nearly as bad as PC.

----------------------------- ------------------------------ - ----------

Some people can live with that, I can't. I bought next gen consoles to play next gen games and that includes best graphics, frame-rates and anti-aliasing. If you don't see the 360 version of most multiplats you won't mind it at all, but if you play them back to back you will noticed there is a noticeable difference in performance. The PS3 has been a weird console so far this gen, it has THE BEST LOOKING GAMES, and at the same time it has the worse looking multi-plats compared to the 360. Only games you can take out is Final Fantasy XIII, MW1 and MW2, the rest either look worse or if they look the same, then they don't perform on par.

The PS3 so far has demonstrated that it is the best hardware but rough around the edges while the more polished experience is the 360.

But of course you will love one system over the other if what you like the most is the exclusives on that system. I'm making my opinion based on multi-plats. You get the same experience but not the same GAME.

Dead Rising 2 has some pretty brutal frame rate problems on the 360 too. It's just not well made

hmmm...
vgchartz aren't as accurate as NPD, but they've been relatively close more often than not, in any case things are looking pretty good for micro going forward and into the holidays, if these vgchartz numbers prove to be close to NPD's more official data then I got to say launch sales of move aren't very promising compared to wii sports resort which has been available for 60wks(wow thats some serious legs)....this prelimanary data will not sit well with many folks on n4g.

Heh, FF13 sold 500,000 PS3s in Japan alone, that is FF's base turf :), a multiplat did that!

Halo: Reach only sold a mere 100,000 more 360s than PS3s, big system seller you say, hah, in its own turf in America you say... beat that cowboy ;)

@ Tinted Eyes

Yeah right. I was bubbled down because you and the rest of the Sony Faithful can't handle the truth about Reach's success let alone the success of the 360. The truth hurts even more when you are not willing to admit it.
Tinted Eyes  +   1456d ago
but everyone knows halo is successful, why would i have a problem with it?

sorry man but it was because you trolled me for no reason accusing me of hating on halo, try again buddy.
squallheart  +   1457d ago
wow 360 is still selling well. Must be the halo commercials. There is one of them playing every damn 30 min lol. Eventhough i dont like the halo franchise i give them credit, they make really good commercials.

Does anyone know when the move marketing will start¿ Its sad cause they barely put out the move at the target i work at but no kiosk explaining what it is. To the casual consumer they will take a glance at it and walk past it.
Makidian  +   1457d ago
Oddly enough I haven't seen a reach commercial since the game came out which I think is strange, or I am just not paying enough attention, but you are right, the commercials are cool as hell. I like the Move commercials to but that's more for Jerry Lambert/Kevin Butler than what it shows.
squallheart  +   1457d ago
Very true. I have only seen one move comercial in the past 4 days. It had me laughing.
hmm wonder what from my previous post got me so many disagrees o.o the fact i dont like halo¿ Didnt even bash anything. Odd community.
corneliuscrust  +   1456d ago
I didn't like Halo either
But my buddy got me into reach. Very slick game, might surprise some people if they are willing to give it a chance :)

Is VG Chartz ever close?
VGChartS  +   1457d ago
VGchartz
is always the closest site to the real numbers,sure there may be a slight decrease in some of the hardware/software sales,but the resources are reliable and offer the closest results to the real thing
RageAgainstTheMShine  +   1456d ago
nope
vgchartz is a 360 site made to make 360 look good & cover up the truth. never reliable never will be. people just refuse the truth. as A Greenberg stated PS3 will never surpass 360 in figures & vgchartz is part of that political machinery that spreads false information around the world. & they will deny it to their graves.
darkride66  +   1457d ago
No, no they're not.
They aren't close to anything. Compare their data to official data, or even to NPD numbers and you'll see they aren't even close. For the first 6 months of the year they overtracked the 360 by over 30% compared to numbers released by Microsoft. Sony's overall numbers are undertracked by more than 2 million.

Even compared to NPD data (and they're supposed to be tracking the same thing - sold at retail) is grossly inaccurate. Compared to NPD data for August, Vgchartz were off more than 20% for the 360 and Wii, 10% off for PS3 numbers. In what world is 10%, 20%, 30% off considered "the closest site to real numbers"? It's ridiculous.

And they aren't accountable to anyone so they can keep doing it. NPD sell their marketing reports. If their numbers aren't accurate, they lose business and can be held accountable. Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are all publicly traded and their numbers are subject to external audit that can result in massive penalties if they're found reporting incorrect sales data. If VGChartz are wrong - a few fans might notice - life goes on and no one is held accountable because it's just a fan run site, after all.

NPD numbers are actually used by the industry which tells you something right there. For the real numbers, wait till all companies report their quarters next month. In the meantime, these fake VGChartz "news" articles need to be failed.

Wow, Halo is still a beast. If it was multiplatform, I think it could easily dethrone Modern Warfare 2 as the fastest selling game ever.

That said, Reach is an incredible game. Much better than past Halos IMO. It is well deserving of these numbers.

It's pretty sad that Wii Sports Resort, in its 60th week since release, outsold Sports Champions in its launch week. That's just WRONG!

Halo: Reach did very well. Let's compare some of the biggest games of this gen on their launch weeks:

4.94m - Modern Warfare 2 (360)
3.96m - Halo: Reach (not yet including Japan)
3.82m - Halo 3
3.38m - GTA IV (360)
3.25m - Modern Warfare 2 (PS3)
2.70m - Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
2.55m - GTA IV (PS3)
2.22m - Halo 3: ODST
1.95m - Gears of War 2
1.77m - MGS4
0.85m - Uncharted 2
0.76m - Killzone 2

360 is still selling really well. It's surprising, I thought the slim effect would wear out. I have both PS3 and 360 and still think PS3 is a way better value if you had to have only one but good for MS.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   1457d ago
Microsoft is really good at one thing:

Keeping ONE thing in the forefront.

It was the slim.
Now, it's Halo: Reach.
Then, it will be Kinect.
Then, Gears 3.

While they don't release anywhere near as many exclusives for the 360...their marketing team and never-ending cash flow keep people buying their stuff. Strange, huh?

Look at Vista. That thing was a mess! When 7 came out, they pretended Vista never existed.

Also, the American media loves them, for some reason. Lol. :) Spike TV hosts the VGA's. Do you know who Spike's viewing audience is? 20-35 males who watch UFC and play Halo. They're essentially the "bros" of yesterday. It's the same guy who tells you "I tried PS3 once. It was gay."

What the media says...the general public does. How do you think our wonderful ex-governor Blagojevich got elected? (Anyone else from Illinois?)
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   1457d ago
As a proud owner of both Halo: Reach and Move...

...I'm not going to tell you which one I've played more this week.

"Leon! You're such a fanboy!"

Yeah...probably. I enjoy good games on various platforms though. :) If anything, I'm a Tolkien fanboy.

This was a great week for the gaming industry. Reach sold extremely well, obviously. Move sold...meh. It's picking up via word of mouth though. Most people are STILL calling it a "Wii clone" though. Those are the people that haven't played it.

Edit: That's fine. I had a Wii. If my friends didn't have them, I'd have kept it. I really want Kirby's Epic Yarn, Epic Mickey, and Donkey Kong Country Returns. I can play those at other peoples' houses though.

Move is amazing! I will never be able to play Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, or basically anything involving sports on the Wii again.

whydoyouask  +   1457d ago
it's actually not that much...
...it only really increased by 30,000. The reall win is the fact that because of Reach, the PS3's sales dropped really low.
whydoyouask  +   1457d ago
i don't think move will outsell Kinect. Not because of some fanboy logic but because to the casual gamer, the Wiimote and the PSMove are basically the same thing in their eyes. Plus, on doesn't have the silly light up balls on it.

Kinect has the advantage of being something that's completely different. Plus my brother bought the move, and didn't like the generic characters you had to use in Sport Champions, although it was fun, it wasn't like the first time you played Wii sports.

@Fred-G-Sanford
"back to when the 360 was outselling the PS3 by huge numbers month after month."

ummm yea... but da PS3 has been outsellin 360 year after year.
i just like da way xbots are takin these past few months and runnin wit em. everyone has their big MONTHS to shine, but wats more important is da FISCAL YEAR! M$ releases xbox slim, sales go up. M$ releases Halo, sales go up....WOW how obvious! where were u xbots last year wen Sony launched PS3 slim and deminished M$ for da whole year. FY2010 M$ was in a distant 3rd by 4mil units. and for all u xbots who think "Sony is loosein ground to da 360" u might wanna check Media Create where M$ has absolutely NO ground in Japan as Sony outsells them by 7x PS3s than 360s.

oh, and watever PS3 fanboy said Reach wasnt gonna sell consoles, u might have missed da limited edition bundle M$ made. which is why i always said Reach will boost sales 1st week as Halo fans upgrade to limited edition 360 but after dat......no
i wud love to see M$ pull higher numbers than Sony Nov & Dec wen GT5 comes out & Sony starts throwin PS3 bundles after PS3 bundles like they did last year :)

@LogicalFanboy...
I am pretty confident the MS Bundle of CallofDuty Blackops (and its coming just like the MW2 one did) will do more to move units than any other PS3 bundle. Microsoft was smart to lock up Call of Duty and Activision in some exclusivity stuff...even if only timed. MS will have the top 2 selling games come holiday time... Halo Reach and Black Ops.

PS3 has its deal with EA and Medal of Honor. So far that game has flop written all over it given its going up against the COD juggernaut. Sony will toss a little love EA's way but honestly, they are getting the red headed step child of shooters this holiday as far as timed exclusivity deals go.

Talking about things from last year doesn't make you smart...
it just shows that you don't have anything to say.

And GT5? Please, that game has had so many pushbacks that the general public don't even care about it any more anymore. The only people buying it are the hardest of the hardcore RACE SIM fenatics, no one else.

It's only got like 180,000 pre-orders right now. Reach was already past 1 million by that point, and Fable 3 (which launches the week before GT5)already has 300,000.

and the whole "M$" isn't riling up anyone, you might as well be typing "MS IS MAKING MORE MONEY!"

but hey, if you get angry, why don't you talk about 2009 again, you know because it's almost 2 years past that and that's all you have to defend yourself.

"End of the Year Hardware totals will tell the true tale"

That`s so true, yet people, fanboys actually, cling onto VGChartz like it`s their bible. How many times does VGchartz have to be wrong before people start to listen? 20 times? 50 times? 100 times? They can`t even manage to match up properly with Sony`s OFFICIALLY RELEASED numbers from months ago, yet we`re supposed to go by their weekly estimate as fact? Unbelievable.

Time and time again they have been wrong. Time and time again they`ve butchered the numbers for both sides. I`ll wait for the OFFICIAL numbers, thanks.
Seferoth75  +   1457d ago
The make estimates. If you could comprehend what that means you would understand how silly you sound. Of course they are not right. They never will be.

There is always someone crying about these numbers in every article. Even if they had real time numbers your console would still be in last place. Either look into what estimates are and how NPD is just an estimate as well though a bigger one.

This gen $ony really spouted some abmoinations in name of SDF. They have fked the video gamers name in the world.
