Since ps3 owners do not care for sales numbers and xbox fans were posting vgchartz left and right a few weeks ago. Let the trend of showing numbers continue. Again this is NOT for ps3 fans since they don't care for numbers or teh salezz
oh really so you missed the ps1 and ps2 years?? and now they don't care about sales, i wonder why?
WTF?!?!? Did you seriously bring out the PS1 and PS2? The lengths that some of you go to justify your stupidity is plain stupid.
sorry to be pedantic but titled shouldn't stay: "Rumor: Worldwide Weekly Chart week ending 30th Oct 2010" should say: "Estimated: Worldwide Weekly Chart week ending 30th Oct 2010"
tatotiburon i don't think people really cared about sales that age, PS1 and PS2 era were in the era where people would actually sit down and talk games and not about sale
Besides what Nitrowolf2 said, those were the time the interwebz werent as spread as today. The marketing wasnt as viral - or downright fanboyish - as today. We sat and talked about games and how amazing they were. I simply dont remeber the fanboy clains we have today about who sold best and who didnt ever coming up in the conversation. And I sat to talk with friends a lot in those years.
What's wrong with you? How can you post an article... and be the first to comment on your own article? I see why you did it! You knew some stupid fanboy was going to look at it, see Ps3 was in lead and go on a spree about how Ps3 was doing so great and 360 nombers are sucking! But you know they will be happy about the numbers and will rub it in, forgetting the fact that it's VGchartz numbers!
I love how when it shows the PS3 ahead of the 360, the rumor meter is always towards the 'for sure' section, but when it shows 360 ahead of PS3 the rumor meter is toward the 'no way' section.
actually i don't remember anyone talking about sales in ps1 and ps2 gen. Either way 360 will be in last place so sony guys will still make fun of them.
I will now add my two pennys. Dont give me this shit about Sony fanboys now caring about sales. If you remember rightly, VGChartz was banned on N4G until the 360 was winning in sales. Make of it what you will. Edit: @government. Look at the meter. What way is it leaning you idiot. Fanboys always see it the way they want it
There were no circle jerking when GT3 sold more than 14 million copies nor when the PS1 and PS2 reach 100 million. I am sure you x360 fans would have an orgy if MS ever once achieve any of these sales figures.
this guy is hilarious
I know right. All fanboys CARE about sales.
"for xbox only fans i assume ......Since ps3 owners do not care for sales numbers" Or do ps3 owners just not care about seeing numbers that are fabricated to show more xbox sales and less PS3 sales on a regular bases. How could that possibly be? VGChartz isn't credible, too much time has been spent on this already, but at least the tittle of this is correct by stating it is rumored numbers.
I do believe this past announcement from Sony regarding sales show that vgchartz sales are not to be believed anymore or shouldn't have been in the 1st place...
dont approve this shiiit site, you idiots!! and im calling people idiots, because i know people are still going to approve it. it aint about being a Sony or Microsoft fanboy, this site just posts bullshiiit!! so dont approve it!
does not change the results...i tought by now we would have realised that
But it isn't news unless you consider the idea that made up numbers are news.
And that's the thing. VGChartz have proven time and time again to be terribly inaccurate compared to either official numbers or NPD numbers. Sure sometimes they adjust their figures months after the fact, it still doesn't make these figures remotely useful. I don't care if they claim the PS3 is outselling, or the 360, or the freaking NeoGeo. They simply aren't reliable.
Poor darkride still upset over things you fail to understand Seriously dude you act like they shot your family or something and it all comes down to you cannot comprehend how they report their numbers or even understand a simple thing like what an estimate actually is. Might be time to get a life kid. we get it, you PS3 fanboys hate the fact that PS3 being dead last is pointed out every week of the year. Even if we stopped VGchartz info from being on the site PS3 would still be in last place. Denying facts doesnt change them
Seferoth your comment is ridiculous. VGChartz had MS second in sales and Sony last. It was actually the other way around. Even vgchartz changed their numbers to reflect that truth. That isn't the matter of an estimate being a little off. That's blatant deception with purpose. If you know the history of vgchartz and it's founder then you know why. Oh wait, acknowledging that truth blows holes in your argument. Tough. Sales are all the 360 fans have on which to anchor their fading pride. Of course now they will jump to the casual gamer device. Have fun. The sales truth is evident from the real figures, that matter even vgchartz admits. The PS3 has been outpacing the 360. Why post anything from them since they have demonstrated once, twice, countless times that they can't get in the ballpark with their estimates, much less to first base. An estimate should carry with it a modicum of accuracy. Instead the vgchartz numbers have repeatedly shown themselves to be more of a fanboy's wishes rather than data analysis based in honest research capable of dependability. By removing the vgchartz articles from this site, PS3 fans are doing 360 fans a favor. But more importantly, even when vgchartz show the PS3 ahead of the 360 we don't care. It's about the games, not the sales.
Then report it.
If people stop approving HHG.
"If people stop approving HHG" You have a better chance finding a cure for AIDS. HHG is like herpes may go away for a while but will always come back.
@hasj1990 agreed please stop approving this crap
Looks about write. Although I do agree approving rumours like this is silly.
Sony announced a while ago of having 41.6m PS3s sold yet VG is still at 40m.
I expect to see similar numbers just not from this site...i dont like it.. PS3 best selling console this week is still probably true...Nice..keep it up sony
Yep when the ps3 is best selling console it must be true../s
next time read my comment troll. i dont like this site. oh so when PS3 isnt best selling console its NOT true??? Exactly. get owned
ther u go your fake website posting fake numbers.enjoy
LOL VGcharts gets there numbers from decent reputable sources only people hate them because they disagree with there numbers for whatever reason.. Well grow up. If they make a mistake they admit it and make changes. Just a side note here football games sell way better on PS3 yet games with guns are selling way better on 360 according to the link.. Were you expecting anything less?
,.Don't you have bigger problems in your lives than sale charts,.. Who the hell bought 360 anyway? Thought us Europeans are smarter,.. 2 world wars should be enough,..
Complete and total fabrications.
"X360 224,822 (+21%) 44,384,140" 44.384.140 UNITS? Are they sure, last time in Microsoft nummbers he told somthing about 41.000.000 units, don't forget that are many people buy more than one 360.
http://gamer.blorge.com/201... So VGChartz thinks there are only 500000 in warehouses and store shelves worldwide...........LMAO
I know people who have bought 2 and even 3 PS3s. I guess we can take that into account and say millions of PS3 sales do not count? The ignorance of some people is astounding.
HAHA! It's not even released yet there, how can it sell out when it isn't available? Who approves this "news" anyways? Look, I know what it is like to be a fanboy. Really I do. I was 8 years old when I got my first console, an NES, and after that I got a SNES cause I'd be darned to get the crappy Sega console. Then I started making real money and could buy anything. And despite the fact I own a PS3, 360, and a Wii for some reason that fanboy side still gravitates toward Nintendo loyalism at times. Example, I preordered Super Mario All Stars despite the fact that it's a $30 emulated ROM that should be an $8 virtual console game. Who would do such a stupid thing? Well I did because it's stuck in my head to do such things forever I'm afraid But just like there are people to tell me I can play the rom freely on a PC or PSP or a phone even, I'm here to tell you that the kinect is not the success Microsoft is hoping. Sure it hasn't even been a week. But they're treating it like a console launch and the last few consoles launches I recall long arse lines, high demand, high secondary market prices, etc. Kinect has nothing like that. The console bundle isn't selling at all and the add-on is only out of stock online because 360 fans are too lazy to go to a real store and buy it. Trust me, I know because judging by the stack at Best Buy and the table they have set up with overpriced HDMI cables and every kinect game to boot that nobody is buying it. Failure to launch. No MS coming around saying "we are pleased to announce we sold 1.5 million kinects in the first 24 hours of launch" or something like they normal like to do. The sales figures are likely in the couple hundred thousands and the only people that bought it are current 360 owners / core gamers. And you know, YOU ARE THE CONTROLLER but you ARE NOT THE TARGET MARKET. The Ellen/Oprah/Beiber/Cirque thing didn't work. They should've spent that money to actually make the tech a little better so we could play something other than eyetoy ripoffs from 2005 (Eyetoy Play 2 to be exact, the games works identical despite lower tech and just a camera with no infared) Enjoy your $150, thousand infared beam emitting eyetoy clone with second class mini game crap that Nintendo would be ashamed to release. It's not made by Nintendo and it's not made by Apple. It's made by Microsoft who has never released a good product ever. The 360 is a good PLATFORM but it took 5 years to make up for the shoddy components they put in it to keep cost down and now it's pretty low tech. I want a new console, not an add on. No add on in the history of games has ever been successful period The only successful peripheral was packed with the top selling non-bundled video game of all time, wii fit. And even that was only bought by 1/3 of wii owners over a period of three years. Microsoft needs to deliver a new console that can play a 3-year-old computer game like Crysis, not put it on life support with this eyetoy thing. PS, Your Shape is round
MW2 sold 4 times as much
I would not surprised if PS3 surpassed 360 already,.. EA would not be sucking Sony's cock that much,.. At least there are more active and working ps3s,..
I love the ignorance on this site. 'Duh, this not for PS3 peoples because they not care about sails'. To think people used to be so much smarter. Even when we had trolls or haters they still said clever things whether it was biased or negative. Now we have idiots just repeating the same stupid thing over and over again whether it sounds sensible or not and approving this junk. I guess that is one problem of games becoming mainstream and more accessible. You have to let in the idiots, the clueless, the uncouth, the mindless and the childish people too.
Not really into the numbers game but nice to see fable 3 sell 20thousand there as I love this game and think its a game the japs will love.
Who cares who is winning look at all the plus signs. The holidays are on! Here I was thinking there was going to be a slump.
am i the only one that can see that jahcure was being completely facetious?
Dont care either way just make better games if great game comes out ill get it regardless of my fav console wow the companies sold stuff choke on the cash i say.
