Latest hardwares sales from VGcharts:
flamewar coming. Anyway, like I said. I don't trust VG charts, I'll take any PS3 success with a grain of salt.
Those are too low for worldwide totals. I think this is only for "Others region", in which case 360 fanboys can brag about the gap getting closer between PS3 and 360.
PS3 "success" is coming...like it or not. How lond are you going to continue saying things like this? The price dropped... it's a different game now... and what about next year when all the great games come out... still gonna be saying that?
And name the game franchises they have bigger than Final Fantasy... the 2nd most calued gaming franchise EVER, only behind Mario himself. How about Gran Turimo 3 which is number 3-5(sorry cant remember exactly) in games sold. Metal GEAR SOLID 4!!!! IN THE TOP 10 AND THE DEATH PROBALLY OF SOLID SNAKE!!! How about little big planet and Killzone 2... the 2 most hyped games voming out on ANY console next year. Dude you're in denial and you're a loser. You trying to hate on a system thats only been out 6 months in Europe. It's a BRAND NEW SYSTEM. I;m not saying the PS3 will be beating the Wii in the next 2-3 years. I don't know and either do you... so it really could. What I do know... is that the day Sony calls it quits on PS3 about 10 years from now... it will be in first place. Just like how you roofrellen... will have a PS3 in your home before its all said and done. We all have hated on it... including me... because they have DOMINATED TO THE CORE... even nintendo... BY DOUBLE for the last 2 generations. The Playstation has become a LEGEND in the video game realm. Like it, disagree ...whatever its very very true. The playstation 2 sold 125 million+ consoles. Playstation 1 sold 110 million. The closest brand to even COME CLOSE in Nintendo with the Super NES at about 75-80 million consoles. The Playstation took the all-time record and almost DOUBLED it. Everything to do with the Playstation involves the best quality on ANY system. PERIOD. They have AMAZING frachises that you will see and be forced to hear about for the whole future. PS3 isn't 40% defective. What do you not understand? Do you not BELIEVE that the junk box 360 is defective? Do you honestly and I mean HONESTLY.... think that by the time both consoles are finished selling... the 360 will even 30-40 million consoles close?(I'm talking worldwide)Buddy!!! IT WON'T! I Guarantee you. After seeing the 360's first 2 years of sales and releasing there BIGGEST HITS(YES HALO 3 IS WHAT MORE PEOPLE WILL BY A 360 FOR THAN ANYTHING)...that they can even break 50 million? I'm willing to bet you the seriously won't even come close. I'm not being naive. This willthe 360's absoutely number best holiday for it to sale good.... because at the end of next year it WILL NOT and I guarantee you... it will not be selling at the same pace as the PS3 anymore... and that gap is goin to grow more and more and more. As for the Wii who knows... if it sells 80-90 million... AMAZING. That doesn't mean the PS3 won't sell a ton. It will. I'm going to laugh so hard when we are looking at this 8-9 years later and it has even broken PS2's record. It probally will happen beacuse Sony knows what their doing. That's why we are witnessing the PS3 taking off right now. And it is JUST THE BEGINNING. Let the games begin.
Wasn't PS3 success supposed to come with Lair and HS?
I'm not saying the PS3 won't have its day, but what makes you confident in PS3 success next year when the Wii has a stronger lineup (if you need it, I can look up the post I made about it), and the past AAA games didn't live up to the hype?
people ever said LAIR or HS would be console movers, they did say HS and LAIR would AAA. They were right with HS and off by one A on LAIR.
You might not have seen it, but all I saw was "wait for lair," and "wait for HS" when people talked about low PS3 sales. I don't think they meant they were waiting for them for a good game, but maybe I was wrong.
However, in that case, I assume, we're not talking about FF13 or MGS being console movers, either, because they are mentioned in exactly the same way, but just are the proven franchises (or should I say rehashes, since people like to accuse Nintendo of that?)
Also, I wonder who I'm losing bubbles from. I made a rather bad remark about the PS3 quoting an artcle, this one got a lot of disagrees, adn the xbots are after me as well for all the RRoD jokes.
good to hear but can you really trust VG Chartz
VG Shats is as trustworthy as me saying: "Well, I think I have a hunch that the PS3 might be selling pretty well...kinda. And the 360 is also selling well, but I don't know...maybe not as well or...umm...and the Wii. Yeah, it's pretty neat isn't it? Hey! Over there! *gone*"
...is the DS is selling like crazy, dang!
Sad to see PS3 and 360 still being outsold by Wii. What is wrong with people? With none of BioShock, Halo 3, Ratchet & Clank TOD, Orange Box, VF5 360, COD4 being on Wii, why people buy it? Because of Wii Play and Wii Sports of course...
because like it or not, Wii is the in thing. everyone wants in to it. it was like pogs in the early 90s. it was so cool to win them, beat other people for theirs. then they realized how overrated and a waste of money it was, then your pogs get left in a dusty box at the bottom of the basement. (at least thats where mine are..)
on topic: don't trust VG charts, but i would expect this trend anyways, because of the price drop and people are educated enough to know that heavy hitting games are coming.
As for VGcharts, they are estimating and their overall results are usually correct specially for NA. I know this is world wide sales but still their predictions are pretty close usually.
When girls come over, they want to play Wii.
When Guys come over, they want to play PS3 & 360
Girls dont like sitting around watching you play Halo 3.
If you want to play videogames while the girls are over, get a Wii.
Unless you dont like girls, in that case, get a Wii.
Thats just how things go in my hood, could be different where you live, but I doubt it.
You've got a point. Rayman Rabbids does wonders when girls are around ;)
It's one of the biggest reason why wii is doing well.
Maybe people are buying the Wii, which is almost outselling 360 and PS3 combined, because of games like Metroid Prime 3, Zelda, Zack and Wiki, Trauma Center, Wii Sports, Resident Evil 4, and upcoming games like Super Smash Bros, Mario Galaxy, Wii Fit, Nights etc. I don't know, it's just a theory.
nope. Considering that wii game sales are the lowest, and many studies say only 1/3 of people who have a wii actually play it on a regular basis. I think the pog theory is right. Seriously if you only have a wii you are missing out on what next gen gaming is all about. Why do you think third party devs are still afraid of making games on it?? and if your sole reason of getting is to get girls, then thats sad and you need to look at yourself and wonder what your doing wrong, because its just sad...
Its simple name kids want a new game machine the wii is the cheapest. Game devs know this, if you compare how many kids game that are on the wii to the true next gen system, its laughable how many are on the wii. You said resident evil 4?? a game that came out on the gamecube about four years ago??? Like I said before in other threads, my brother doens't even play games, but he was like wow whats this wii thing everyone is talking about, went out and got one, and hasn't got a single game for it. Thats why its doing so well. You have some gamers buying it, but you got people buying for old people's homes for God's sake(how hard are the games on it), basicilly you got people who don't even play games buying it. My mom even wants one, and I ask her what do you want on it? she says I don't know, its just cool, and I like wii sports. That game has got to be the best killer app of all time. My mom for heaven's sake who has never held a controller in her hand her whole life. Thats why its winning, its casual. Thats one reason why I hope wii doesn't win, it would mean gaming would change as far as we know it. Everything will be geared towards casual gamers, and I mean casual. People just want it, because people want it. lol.
Imagine a world where game devs look at it and say, now would old folks want to play this, will soccor moms want to play this? would girls want to play this?? thats fine, but say goodbye to your call of duties, your halo's, your uncharted, your GT5, your devil may cry's, your true final fantasy games, your bioshock, your unreal, your warhawk. Its a scary thought.
the xbox and ps3 is more for hardcore gamers...the wii is for the casual gamers...theres ALOT more casual gamers than hardcore gamers so thats why the wii is selling like crazy...(im a hardcore gamer 4 lyfe!!!) And lol my family is the same exact way they all want a wii and im like wtf? you ppl never even seen a videogame b4 and you want a wii
good to hear i dont trust VG
But jsut wait until next week when the xbox 360's sales come flying in and they show a one up on the ps3. You'll preach them like the bible.
when it sold almost that much last week in japan alone?
I think they need to go back and check them numbers!
it don't even have the numbers for Japan & America and what Dummy disagreed with me SMH.
Reading is FUNdamental.
Bad numbers I think. I don't think these are worldwide. It too low for all consoles.
really low actually...and I'm not just saying that because the 360 is at the bottom...the 360 may have very well been outsold by the ps3 worldwide, more power to it...but the numbers are simply too low across the board for every console...at least to me...anyone else feel that way?
so the title is wrong =/
Week ending Oct.27th, 2007
Console Weekly Total
DS 417,176 54,162,052
Wii 314,252 13,289,745
PSP 195,157 25,964,416
Xbox 360 186,942 12,747,608
PS3 135,693 5,397,249
These totals aren't even correct, last week MS gave it's totals sold as 13,400,000 plus units sold, this was 200,000 more than the Wii.
Also, just to clarify, the link says week totals for Nov.3rd but it's has Oct/27tth shown in box, click dates and put Oct.27th in again and you'll get the totals I have shown above, The Actual Nov.3rd totals aren't there yet, this is fill numbers, also there only 1/4 of normal weekly totals so is that a clue for anyone?????
This is for Europe/Other for the week ending the 3rd. Those sales you listed are for the week ending the 27th worldwide. Do you get it now? This weeks worldwide sales cant be listed yet because the Japanese/American numbers arent in yet.
^^ Jandre, you got a disagree. LOL. People...argh.
The link weather you say was not worldwide said worldwide on screen when link was clicked also now the link is down b/c it was wrong. So fany packing ps3 fans you'll have to see real worldwide numbers tomorrow and you'll see for yet again...the Xbox 360 beats you piss assed 3. yeah I know kinda childish but appropriate.
ps3 still a loser.
Sony's ps3 motto instead of "this is living", should be "Does the fun ever start?".
Ok, I've had enough sugar and I'm going to watch Hero's, night all.
XGamer ... You're an idiot. You honestly think those numbers are world wide?
Why arent you playing your hot brick? i thought Halo 3 and all the other crappy games for the 360 were supposed to be fun...considering all of the boasting yall do for ur games and youre not even playing them? That proves how fun youre crappy games r. just wait till a few months and the only ppl on this site will be xbots...cuz everyone with a Ps3 will be playin all of the kick ass games that r comin out
(Btw if any1 things im a hypocrite 4 sayin that,im on bcuz im in school not bcuz im bored of my Ps3)
!!!!!!!MY NAME FTW!!!!!!!
However, the posting when it was first posted said World Wide and I was trying to show that was wrong and that it's not a correct link.
If I need to explain that AGAIN to you let me know.
I tell you what... if the PS3 is not able to sell more consoles than the xbox 360 in the US now with the $400 SKU... when will they? after the xbox 360 gets a price drop or/and comes with 2-3 games?
To be honest, I don't think that the PS3 will take over any time soon. They can stop its drop with the $399, but eventually it will be dependent on the games library and the HD TV market penetration (both TV sets and BD movies). Until then, the absolute number will sell machines. And that is $279 for a 360 or $249 for a Wii compared to the $399 for the PS3. At a certain level, features won't sell, but price. But I think it will be enough until that time will come. And I also predict this will cause a heavy hit on Wii/360 then. But not any time soon (maybe not even in 2008).
I don't think the $400 PS3 will make a dent in any of it's competition, for the simple fact that it's a dumbed down version of the 20gb that flooped. The 80gb is what's carying them, I mean twice the gb and comes with a $60 dollar game plus BC. The same goes for the $279 360, WTF no HDD, even the WII comes with internal flash memory... The WII is set up the best with only one sku IMHO.
So what is wrong with these numbers? i remember bloodmask posted number from vcharts before.
If you read vgchartz a bit more carefully, you'll find, that these numbers (as stated somewhere above here) are "others" only (mainly Europe and Australia), the numbers for NA/Japan are not available yet and are not included in the globals, neither (so World == others for now).
If you take a close look at the PS3 numbers, then they are not really that positive. The sales dropped from 75k to ~56k. The 360 numbers are pretty much on the same level (roughly), Wii went back up again. If the PS3 US numbers won't go up significantly, the PS3 will drop below 100K again. The $399 model, however was not out in the US yet (well, since Friday, but I don't believe they'll make a big difference).
I am a PS3 owner, but we gotta keep the feet on the ground. There is nothing to celebrate - not yet.
Great post man! Agree with you %100. +Bubble
How these articles come up about how when the PS3 outsales the 360 it is only based on 1 week of sales? So many fanboys are more obsessed with how the sales are for the PS3 than they are playing the system.
oooooooohhhh its lik 10k. This is a console battle for numbers around 100million. 100k one week means nothing. 10k one week means nothing. i do want to see all consoles even thoughj
PS3 has the best exclusive games no PC ports, so ofcourse its going to destroy the x360 sale-wise anyone knows this.
come 2008 its going to be a masacre for the x360 though, ouch get ready.
i'd like to believe this, but come on this is vgchartz, the numbers must be bigger! :P jk
lets wait for NPD
You will see if you look at worldwide sales for Nov.3 the numbers are the same as the ones in the link.
This sale doesn't look right, if people just take a look why last week its was sold way more than this week, if u see last week it like couple of hundred thousand more than this week, this would look to certain point where it too low for the world wide sale
these sales seem weirdly low......or is it jus me and they seem f'd somehow like all of the console sales
Well I guess the PS3 is making a come back.
lol bs numbers.
Which on one hand is good for sony that they still outsold the 360 3rd week running kind of bad that it is quite a drop of from last week while the 360 icreased sales and are only less than 10k behind....so much for being dead in eu ha. I have to say though there will be a slight lul now cause its still a little early for christmas shopping.
this site will become great when articles like this are not approved....seriously....
these results are for the # of consoles sold in places other than America and Japan. Which, in this case, the 360 has already been lagging in sales.
ps3 has yet to reach 6 million and 360 is already past 12 million.
question is......is this 4 real.
Hmmmm maybe bcuz the 360 had a headstart??? lol you all bring up the fact that the 360 has almost double the sales but the 360 has been out for over double the time than the ps3 has...if the ps3 and 360 were released on the same date im pretty sure we all know who would be in first right now
And Wii outsold them both.. Funny how that was excluded from the title.
Once again. These are purely ESTIMATES.
MS should be really worried because PS3 will only get better from here on end. More games, price cut and the PS3 will stand the test of time. In context it would be like Sony releasing MGS4 with a lower price and then get outsold by competition one month after. Lets see how mass effect affects the market.
Let's try on some context shall we? For the week ending:
Oct. 7th - PS3 sold 36,489 units
Oct. 14th - 109,167 units (Introduction of 40GB SKU/Clearance of 60GB SKU)
Oct. 21st - 104,706 units (Holding)
Oct. 28th - 72,550 units (Falling)
Nov. 4th - 54,599 units (Falling)
In another week, two at most, PS3 sales will be back in mid-30K range & that's not much to brag about. Not to mention that this sale cost Sony a fortune & consumers completely thumbed their noses.
Looks like they're holding for the most part - the last dip looks like it was due to the 40GB release in NA the next week.
Your numbers are wrong if you hover your mouse over the weekly points on the graph.
Ah, nvm ... I see those were european numbers. Yeah, they are falling. :/ But seem to be holding world wide.
PS3 Outsells Xbox 360 in Sales Estimates ?Estimates wtf
saw something like this in July when the PS#3 had it's price drop and every week this chart showed that the PS#3 was out selling 360 and Phil Harrison was saying "when the numbers come out it will show that PS#3 dominated" or something close to that. Well we know how that turned out. I'll wait til NPD comes out.
took them long enough...OH WAIT ARE THEY JUST ESTIMATES???
new low 4 sony and its fans?
Are you Sony bots THAT hard up? fing ESTIMATES?????
All sales you see are estimates. Not all can vary as much as vgchartz, but every single time you see consoles sold, its an estimate, not an excat count of every console sold.
vgchartz ESTIMATES my balls will outsell the ps3 this holyday season
since ur a tranny who cut their balls off and has a fake vagina ? U didn't think i would find out your little secret?
i Estimates your reply out sales the ps3
The PS3 and Xbox sell best in the holiday season. But come January, Nintendo will sell WiiFit to all the fatso getting ready for summer. Parents will buy Big Brain for their kids once school lets out. The Wii keeps selling all year long. The rules of console sales have been changed; the Xbox and PS3 need to adapt. If the PS3 or the Xbox is selling well in November does not matter.
