VGC: "Last Week we analyzed the Wii's MIllion Sellers, today we will check on Sony's power house console; the PS3. Checking Vgchartz data we found out that the PS3 has a total of 74 titles that sold over a million units worldwide."
The move helped big time!
It's VGChartz. Gotta give or take a Sextillion.
Yep. The laughably fake vgchartz made up console sales are nothing compared to the ridiculously fake software sales numbers. Vgchartz is long overdue to be banned from this site.
we should all stop giving that very bad website hits. Each time I see their URL, Im not clicking it anymore!
Is it me, or does it seem like multiplats sell more than exclusives? I know it's VGchartz, but people kept going on and on about exclusives, yet those arent the highest selling games on the Ps3! On average, a Ps3 exclusive sells 2-3 million based on these figures. There are over 30 million Ps3's world wide... Why aren't the exclusives selling more? Especially when they have the best of everything!
ps3 will have atleast 1 million lead on xbox360. wii will keep selling less and less and by late 2012-early 2012 ps3 will lead WW and if MS keep their word and we don't get a new xbox than xbox360 will be 2nd but since launch ps3 has outsold xbox360 WW and keep this in mind there are many countries in the world which just got their ps2's last year in suth america and middle east. so ps3 hasn't really launch WW don't hate or disagree ps3 has outsold xbox360 ww since lauch and that's a FACT
won't make it any easier on wii or xbox360
Huh? The PS3 already is ahead of the 360 in worldwide installed base.
IMO without xbox360 lame year headstart, ps3 already ahead. I LOL'd at those who claim ps3 is in third place
This doesn't make any sense at all, well the PS3 is closing the gap on the 360, its doing it really slowly. I mean what something like 2 million over 4 years? And even if the Wii stopped selling today, the PS3 would need to sell at its current rate for about 3 years to match let alone surpass Wii games.
Can't believe CoD: MW 2 sold nearly 9 mill on PS3, when there are other more deserving games that are way better with half those sales, or less.
Soon GT5 shall be the best selling PS3 game.
I hope so, anything to beat CoD 4: MW2.
the key is in the advertising, simple as that.
And millions of mindless sheep!
blame the cod sales on the casuals
what also helped where those killer deals sony set everywhere from Toys r us to amazon. Each bundle exclusive to the set place. The deal is amazing and one of my friends in class who doesnt even game much said he bought it (ps3) recently for the deal itself. Plus it came with a sports game, which are the only type he plays. Woo Sony! Go kick rival (not the 360 only you fanboys) ass.
Another lame article by VGcrap charts...most of those games are way off on the units sold.Also what a shame that COD populates 4 spots of the top 10 list...:( Just shows how people miss out on some great games Because of that rehashed/milked to death franchise..
lol death franchise nice
that the reason for Cod-games selling more then ps3 exclusives is due to the Million dollar ads that Activision and MS (yes MS) set out for this game. its common knowledge that Cod games are on ps3, so when MS spends millions on those "play it on Xbox360" ads, it lets the general public know that theres a new cod game for both systems, no one is getting fooled. i have never seen a ps3 exclusive advertised like Cod, gears, and Halo. so when ppl use the arguement that "ps3's best selling game is a multiplat" doesnt mean shit. there, i finally said it. oh, why the hell am i here anyways, its VGcharts walks off
Sony had me thinking that AC:brotherhood was a PS3 exclusive though. i was watching south park and saw the ad about 4 times and it had the PS logo and everything. Seems they both do it.
Nice to see they have something nice to say about the PS3 though, for a change. :: goes and files this under rumor anyway:: I'm sure they will find a way to undertrack the ammount of PS3 million sellers. LoL
We already knew this information but the Gt5 hate came out of left field XD like wow wasn't expecting that cause i own the game and liked it a very easy 10 from me playing it right now. It's straight up rpg status like if you put hard work into it feels rewarding that is what i love about it :)
Just realised. The PS3 is around for over 4 years and still nothing past the ten million mark? On the PS2 the GTA games flew past ten million in about two years. It seems there aren't any exclusives with that kind of mass appeal on the playstation anymore. Lots of niche 2-3 million games, but nothing really to appeal to the masses. The only PS3 exclusive i can see going past ten million is MAYBE GT5, i'm not all too certain. Think this is first generation since the 16 bit days that the highest selling exclusive game was NOT on a Sony console (Or did mario 64 sell the most in the gen after, i'm not sure). Maybe they are losing touch with the mainstream. They may have to look to rockstar again to recreate the GTA magic with Agent, whatever that game is, we have no info as yet.
Sony lost their leader position on their own wish but overall the market changes quite a lot since PS2 you know. It's never fair to compare results from I don't know how many years ago with today.
2-3 million is not niche.I think you can see the range of PS3 software in that list and those that claim exclusives don't matter can see a the largest percentage of million sellers are Sony published.In fact almost the same percentage as Ninty,and I thought they would be much higher. I think it's good that the million sellers are spread.Better to 74 million sellers than 50 with 3 or 4 above 10 million.
Oh MotorStorm: Pacific Rift got hardly to 1m, man and it's so much better that the first part, but I bet the original Motorstorm sold that well just because of the lack of games back then.
People are stupid. I never cared much for the MotorStorm series but goddamnit people should pay more attention to the PS3 exclusives. #30 Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction #63 Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time What the hell are people thinking? The Ratchet & Clank series are so much fun and highly underrated.
