VGC reports this week top selling hardware Worldwide for the week ending Jan 8th, 2011 is as follows: Hardware: DS 420,490 (-41%) Wii 402,381 (-39%) PS3 342,727 (-38%) X360 298,885 (-45%) PSP 177,686 (-46%) PS2 79,498 (-45%)
Wii & DS still kickin ass!
exactly... imagine if Nintendo shaved off even 30% price cut on their best selling consoles...lol :)
these are fake numbers
Imagine if they made games worth buying those systems for.
i love how the 360 fanboys that put these charts up when 360 was winning were not too pushed about posting this. also the japan numbers are wrong, 360 is under 3k and ps3 over 60k. official numbers but vgfail changed them
its mad that ps2 still sells. we might as well add the ps2 numbers to the ps3 versus 360 numbers
But impressive sales for the first week of a new year. @rsp..you would think huh. IMO sony is hurting sales of the ps3 by keeping the ps2 going. Drop production of the unit but game development could still happen. Imagine if they announced a PS4 next year. They would be trying to support 3 consoles at once. Only one other company ever did that and look what happened (hint: SEGA).
No matter how wrong the numbers are, the idea is the PS3 is generally outselling the 360 worldwide. PS3 being 2nd place soon is inevitable. Too bad nothing coming out is really a system seller. LBP2 and Killzone 3 will sell a few extra 10,000s of units but nothing more.
Its funny how the numbers are fake when Nintendo are on top.
@godsmars...i bought the games and had a blast more than any others... :)
@darthv72 They would possibly be supporting 5 at once =D PS3 PSP PS2 "Playstation pocket"? (ps phone) PSP2 Also PC with MMOs and stuff so that's awesome
i was looking at just the home console front of PS2, PS3 and PS4. Sega had the master system they were still supporting in Europe and the US with the new design. The genesis/sega cd/32x all considered one because they all related to each other. Then they had the saturn. You could throw in the game gear for good measure if you wanted to but that deviates from the home console list. That is alot of hardware to provide support to at the same time.
its a rumor dont get excited lol
At last America is not the world,....lol.
it takes the rest of the world combined to equal/surpass america. That must account for something. @below: 50% for a single territory vs the rest of the world....yeah that is huge. You may not see it that way but that is why America is the single biggest territory in game sales. That is the market you WANT your product to do well in for its sheer percentage of market share. like the song goes: if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere (except jp for the 360 lol).
"it takes the rest of the world combined to equal/surpass america. That must account for something." If that's the case then it accounts for 50%.
PS3 beats 360 worldwide as usual...
Shh. Dem not 'appy.
LoL...If Americans aren't buying the 360 like crazy, the 360 will come in behind PS3 worldwide. The 360 can out sell the PS3 by 100k in the states and still come in behind..
"VGchartz are fake numbers". .....taken from every PS3 fanboy post about sales numbers.
Does VGChartz ever stop swarming N4G?
as much as i love ps3 i still don't buy these fake numbers regardless if they finally got ps3 kick n 360 ass..
Vgchartz is crap
Ahh ps3 rules the roost again, gee that 360s kinect release boost didn't last long did it??
no it was just a holiday scam. micro will probably release a load of shovelware next xmas to scam more people.
DS 420,490 (-41%) 145,678,331 Wii 402,381 (-39%) 84,677,230 PS3 342,727 (-38%) 46,583,290 X360 298,885 (-45%) 51,275,501 PSP 177,686 (-46%) 65,660,001 PS2 79,498 (-45%) 141,706,74 they forgot to post the totals in the headline.
PS3 fanboy- but it's VGCHARTZ, it's a 360 fanboy that just makes numbers up. Hmm the 360 fanboy has the PS3 ahead this week, LOL, I can see now that as long as these numbers keep showing up, the PS3 fanboys will worship the website. Be a gamer and support all consoles.
and yet you bash ps3 fanboys instead of calling out all fanboys. lol. i don't think anyone stated vgchartz was fact. you just don't want to hear that the ps3 is doing well in other parts of the world.
I could care less I own both consoles and most of the time it's the PS3, I have 100 friends on live and most of them are playing black ops and thats it, maybe halo reach here and there, on PSN people play many different genres and games. And it was because everytime you see a vgchartz article on here the PS3 fanboys yell, it's a 360 fanboy, he makes the 360 numbers look better, who the F cares, it's videogame consoles for christ sakes, entertainment. If this was a 360 fanboy why would he have had the PS3 selling more, people need to grow up, and be a gamer, not fanboys.
"look at comments from PS Fanboys above you saying these charts are still fake" hmmmm......
Its because its not far ENOUGH ahead, its supposed to be 1.5 million for the Ps3 and 2k for the 360. I am surprised that noone has brought up supply constraints for the 360 though.
LOL DIDN'T VGCHARTZ JUST ADJUST ALL CONSOLES JUST LIKE RECENTLY AND THEY WAS NOT JUST A SMIGEN OFF THEY TOTALLY WAS OVERTRACKING EVERYTHING EXCEPT PS3
PHIBALNATION: owning two consoles or even three doesn't excuse you from being a fanboy.
*facepalm* No matter what side of fanboy you take part in, both will call each other out on each other saying VGC is fake.... It's like the same cycle over and over again. Anyway, it looks like it has all through 2010 until December. Back to normal, I guess? Now it's time for them 360 games to start rollin in and get everyone excited so it can be on top again! -_-
