Xbox 360: 218,636
please post this crap when its a good read and not something i already know. we all know the ps3 slaps the 360 in the face in all places except NA, but its coming soon
edit: @ videogames4life. i dont know what country you are from but it must be located in redmond behind bills house, but we ps3 owners havent even got our hands on the big guns. so go back to blowin gates balls. oh and dont post too much with ur 2 bubbles and all. save one for another time or place
PS3 will never be popular in North America ever and PS3 is still Millions behind the 360 and now it still outsold the PS3 by 2 Million Units and how do you expect the PS3 to catch up...EVER?
PS3 is Selling like Crap in Austrailia and the UK not just NA, but that doesn't really mean anything to SONY FanBoy idiots cause they don't think, they just make up Sh*t and hope that SONY Wins which will never hapen again.
The PS3 is doing great in other parts of the globe. In NA they doing decently good ..If they start selling like the 360 in japan then thats when you need to start worrying..PS3 is not gonin anywhere..Sony need to bring out more games next year, and keep its release date, and they will rule 2008.
You say the PS3 slaps the Xbox 360, wow your a major tool aren't you?
It's only been due to a ps3 price cut the last few weeks that ps3 has sold most anything at all, Xbox 360 is still winning and as soon as there price cut the Xbox 360 numbers will again climb highest amongst consoles.

Your name says it all end of conversation
"It's only been due to a ps3 price cut the last few weeks that ps3 has sold most anything at all"
Dug your own grave there. The Ps3 price-cut has been in effect for TWO AND A HALF MONTHS now. It started October 10th, I believe.
@videogames4life - you don't know what's going to happen in the future, the PS2 is still a very popular system in NA so why couldn't the PS3 be?
I expect the 360 to be selling more in NA this week and PS3 to be selling more in Japan as usual.
ps3 is taking over europe and japan!
NA is left to take next year!
The 360 has been out for twice as long as the PS3. Also the 360 has had more time to bring out good games while the PS3 is just starting to so when more of the top games like MGS4, KillZone 2, Haze come out, then the PS3 will really start taking over NA, at leats better than it is ATM.
did the ps3 out sold the 360?
again and again and again and again
but they make up only about 30% (give or take) of the gaming market, the rest pretty much goes to NA where the Wii and the 360 dominate. Without the US the 360 would have tanked last year but with the US it has a strong 2nd (again)
are u abnormal or something
EU and JAPAN make up 65--70% of gaming market
EU is the biggest market at the moment since the Indians and the Chinese have high purchasing power too and most of them play games as well
NA is the second biggest market. The first being EU and the last being JAPAN
However do note that PS3 is doing a great job in NA as well.It will surpass the x360 in 08
In your case it proves that point. Everyone in the world (even PS3 owners like me) know that the US is the largest gaming market but you. Everyone but you, your all alone on that one bro but then again your all alone on alot of the "so called stats" you use (you are infamous for false numbers and data)
^^^^You really are a nut.hhmmmmmmmmm YES the US is the biggest market but when u compare how the PS3 is winning Europe Japan, New Zealand, Austrailia... it doesnt matter... and believe what u want but the PS3 at a 399 to 499$ price...shouldn't be winning ANYWHERE. Wait.... it already is though! Almost EVERYWHERE except the US and its still selling pretty good there. Defiantely not BOMBING like the 360 is in Japan. haha. And if u think the 360 is going to continue to win in 2008 and especially even beyond that. You are on crack. The PPS3's games are coming. The price is still gonna drop. Realize it IS still 150$ cheaper.... but just for the sake of your Ego and beloved little RRODbox, we will pretend all the PS3's biggest games have been released...everything is fair... the 360 really didn't get a year head start on the PS3... and the PS3 isn't really selling identical, Worldwide, to a 150$ cheaper machine with its biggest best Exclusives year it will ever have. haha. You industry noobs are in for a treat. The 360 is never gonna beat the PS3 in the end. PSN is also getting EVERYTHING next year(Sony said a week ago) and also Playstation Home. Anyways... back to UT3
what garbage box 360 fanboys????
PS2 sold over 50 million consoles in EU vs 40+ for NA and the rest for JAPAN
NA was the biggest gaming market. Now EU/PAL (which includes rest of Asia too) is the biggest gaming market.
in 5 years time CHina and India would have a gaming commmunity bigger than NA's
"EU is the biggest market at the moment since the Indians and the Chinese have high purchasing power too and most of them play games as well"
India and China are not part of the European Union, they are'nt even part of Europe. Ever heard of Asia?
i thought china hated japan. so in that sence. why would they buy a ps3.
I love how they add Asia and Australia as part of their Europe numbers. Good god you guys are some freaking idiots. What next you going to add Canada and Alaska ore even Africa as part of the EU numbers? LOL Morons
From VGcharts (estimate)
There are approx:
20.25 million next gen consoles sold in North America.
6.25 million next gen consoles sold in Japan.
14.25 million next gen consoles sold in Europe/"Others"
This includes Wii's.
Note that this doesn't include the week of 12/23 for North America, which should beef up its tally significantly.
North America is the largest world market by far, moving more than three times as many units than Japan.
As for Sony catching up to Microsoft in 2008, not likely at all. They have a huge install base defecit and haven't even begun to bridge the gap. By contrast, the gap just gets larger every month. This may have a cascading effect, like an avalanche, making it less and less likely each month as developers are swayed by M$'s huge install base and attach rates, making PS3 an even less likely purchase.
I don't think any system is going to "die" this generation and hopefully, they'll all be profitable for their makers.
I'm not surprised the PlayStation 3 has increased the gap between itself and the 360; it was really popular last week in retail stores. Technically the 360 is the logical console of choice for gamers, as it has a better software library, but for Sony to be strong in Europe - because of its brand name - shows incredible confidence from their fanbase and these figures will only grow when the big franchise titles are eventually released, where it could reinstate itself fully. This mentality by European consumers, where they remain to Sony, is suggestive enough to me personally that the console wars are far from over.
thanks for providing the link. ;)
yea im not surprised too by the result. Next week result going to be interesting too.
Ds nearly selling 1million in a week. :O
Ps3's gaining momentum in the EU now and the 360/Ps3 gap is dividing.
it also explains why uncharted only dropped one place in sales this week.
Still whatever happened to the 360 outselling the ps3 big time this xmas was wrong if anything i can see ps3 outselling 360 worldwide, and thats without any killer app's. What a turnaround from this summer
When people talk about 2008 and the fanboys from the PlayStation side rave about it, I think this year itself was very interesting and promising alone. Despite all the negativity surrounding the platform from the media, and regardless of the high price of the console, it still sold pretty decent when you look at the bigger picture. When people claim the 360 will win the console war and you remind them the PS3 is selling at a faster rate, in its first year (facing those problems and also probably better alternatives in the Wii and Xbox 360), than Microsoft's console did even though it was almost twice the price, then you have a slice of bragging rights.
It SEEMS that Sony are heading to match total sales worldwide this holiday season with Microsoft's Xbox 360, and that's a positive. Although I'm sure if we said that two years ago, Sony themselves would be outraged at the thought of being the dominating leader one generation, to now sharing market ratio with the Xbox. But it's a step in the right direction.
Obviously Microsoft have not managed to attract ENOUGH potential customers away from the PlayStation 3, despites the slightly cheaper price and software library, so I don't buy the notion that an even cheaper 360 would cause a significant mass exodus towards the Green ship. I still think people are waiting for the Metal Gear's of this world and a cheaper price point before they purchase a PS3, and looking at it from a individual platform's point of view, they can only sell more with a cheaper price point and better games. The fact that Microsoft will always have the cheaper console, I don't think, will win the console wars for them alone.
Wow the ps3 is fighting back in this console war thats great news. But this is Vgchartz they make educated guesstimates. Lets just hope that the NPD numbers are close to this.
i wish EU would release real numbers so we could stop relying on VGcharts because no one knows how off they are.
And now lets view world wide
Meh not much happening. The 360 will get its 2nd price drop soon and will widen the gap again!
Your link directs us to global sales chart. No weekly sales. Unless the Wii sold almost 20,000,000 last week I don't think you got the right link.
Weekly sales outside the EU haven't been released on that site yet.
The difference is can a price drop really have that much of an impact on the ps3 with Metal Gear Solid 4 around the corner, both consoles are affordable now, its software which will make the difference. Plus i still see sony dropping the price again come spring next year, and will release the 80GB in Europe
cant you read the title: "European / Other"
I cant see "Worldwide" in the title. Who cares? Xbox 360 popularity will fall anyway.
shouldnt you say
I HOPE it gets a price drop and I HOPE it widens the gap
because we all know thats what you HOPE for
that would be a really desperate move, why would they drop the price if their console is already cheaper. And why would you see that act a desperation as a good thing if your console is supposedly superior? And i'm sure you will pull the "Sony did 2 price drops blah blah blah". The difference is THEY HAD THE MORE EXPENSIVE SYSTEM.
"that would be a really desperate move, why would they drop the price if their console is already cheaper."
Why would that be a desperate move? Dropping the price on a console sells more systems, which in turn sells more games. Sales of the PS2 rose dramatically after roughly two years on the market when the price was dropped to $199 from $299. Was that an act of desperation?
If price cuts are an act of desperation, was Sony desperate? The PS3 is currently being sold for a loss of about $100 per console. The Xbox is being sold at a profit of about $50 per console. The Xbox 360 will see a GPU die shrink, console redesign, and significant price drop in 2008. It's inevitable.
It will be interesting to see how much the PS3 Sold this Christmas
The ps3s only weakness is NA.
but all they have to do is shorten the gap in NA and they win.
besides sony did it with the ps1 so they can definetly make a comeback with the ps3.
What's the suprise herE? PS3 has consitantly beat xbox 360 in Europe week in and week out since it launched in March this year. Why so shocked? Sony is doing amazing everywhere in all honesty. The bigger truth is... Every system is. That's the growth of the industry. Learn to live with it. Sure some might do better than others in specific areas and locations... but as a whole... Wii, Ps3 and xbox 360 are all doing amazing growth.
Stop being sales fanboys... No system is dying anytime soon. Trust me.
Thats the first non fanboy comment I think I've ever heard you say. Since its Christmas I;ll give you a bubble lol
wooo! all of the sudden VGC is reliable.. since it shows the PS3 winning... For how long will Sony fanboys trust VGC? ohh wait I know... until the release the NA charts...
@Spike47 - You speak of NA as if something small... lol.. it represents 60-70% of the game industry in terms of sells.... don't forget that.
we agree on. Yes Vg charts is always wrong. Its been proven time and time again.
Funny Bladestar, when VGChartz releases their crap stat numbers for NA, you're first in line to bash the PS3 and laugh at its sales.
Guess they're only right when the 360's outselling the PS3, right?
I think thats exactly what he's trying to say about the other side. Personally I don't give a damn I'm gonna own every system and get the best of every world. Yay for me.
when does the NPD numbers come out?
They don't in europe, Chart Track is the UK equilivant to NPD but thats about it
ah thx. didnt know that. shows ya how much i care about numbers...
Here are the percentage increases (I calculated them, yay) for each platform.
DS - Up 10% from last week
Wii - Up 29% from last week
PS3 - Up 24% from last week
PS2 - Up 22% from last week
PSP - Up 23% from last week
Xbox360 - Up 19% from last week
Note that sales of Wii and DS were constrained due to supply issues.
A+ Mues for your math work, You get a cookie =D
I've never gotten an A in Math :(
I'll give you B+ for your math work then since its show your improvement over your hardworking =)
PS3 now officially will own Europe and the Rest of the World over the 360.
(Wii is in another league of it's own....the race is between PS3 and 360)
PSP even outsold 360....
Basically all Sony systems outsold Xbox 360, but the fact that PS2 is still kicking its ass speaks volumes.
with the PSP selling so well and the conectivty of it and the PS3 where do you think all the ppl buying those PSP's are going to go when they have the money for a PS3
yea thats right
i know im getting a PSP just becuase im on the road alot and it would be nice to check my email and download demos or trailers for when i get home
you had a alright year and you had some good things you thought you could brag about. Its a shame the rest of the world isnt jumping in and most of them like they have in the past will Play b3yound
hey the only reason i have a psp is because i had a Ps3 (and CC:FFVII of course)
So im sure they help each other sales wise
its crazy when u consider the PS3 is up against 3 sytems
and still sold at a better rate in its first year then the lagbox
You think after outselling its competition by 4-1 last generation that merely keeping pace with the *second* place system this generation is amazing? Not just OK, or good, but AMAZING!? You have low standards.
go sony go!
does have some real good games for a handheld.
my last comment
dont get me wrong
The 360 is a dam fine gaming machine but as far as entertainment hub it cant hold the PS3's jock strap
PS3 has beaten X360 last three consecutive weeks on a world wide basis. This week seems to be widening the lead even further. It has surpassed 8 millions unit and on its way to reach 11 millions by 3/31/2008 as Sony has targeted. It will hit 18 millions by the end of 2008. The momentum is just started. It has 15 big exclusive games to be released in the coming 6 months. The Blu-ray effect is another major factor that is pushing PS3 sales and X360 lacks. The Blu-ray movies will pass 500 by February. The down pouring of BD movies, PS3 games and lowering prices will drive the PS3 momentum in a phenomenal pace many people are ready to accept.
worldwide the 360 outsold the ps3 last week by 6K....even beat the ps2...i Love when people post misinformation where if people bothered too look they can find the numbers...enjoy
@bottom..what are you talking about.,..this is last weeks worldwide numbers.not this weeks....check the link..roflmao...maybe you should check before you post homie. Im convinced some of you people dont even read a post..just follow people who you think are negative towards the ps3 and just comment..
VG Charts is 10K short on PS3, as they haven't updated the japan numbers
According to the corrected numbers PS3 outsold 360 last week, and that is by around 5 thousand units
is in trouble in Europe
You know America? that place that takes up "MOST OF THE GAMING PIE" That 100,000 european diff doesnt mean d!ck when the 360 outsell the PS3 by 300-500k in the US. Which means what we all already know, America is the key ground to grab with Japan next followed by Europe trailing the rear. MS just clearly needs US, UK and just stay within 100-200k in europe to take the prize, because Sony isn't going to close that 7-9 million console gap.
So the PS3 stays where it will be this whole gen (dead freaking last)<---where it is now. But I'm sure Droids will try and find a way (make up sh!t in their blogs) or count the "whole Sony family" in their fantasy last place numbers to try and lie their way to a victory. (which always dies when NPD shows it's numbers} or they will add movie sales with it's game sales and claim that it the PS3 game "attach rate".
Cheers Droids, here is to 08 (((clinks glasses))) I'm sorry your glass doesnt have much in it, but hey you should be used to your Droid glass being mostly empty.
But then again this is VGCharts (droids) remember , they are allways inaccurate and you don't like VG remember? I'm sure MS would gladly take the US :-) I'm also sure they will like to pwn JP and EU, but that will come soon enough if not next gen.
Wowsers. Ps3 is getting stronger. Well, it is all but confirmed that my fiancee bought me a ps3 for Christmas. So now I have the best of both worlds. First order of business...get UT3 :) :) :)
Looks like the whole world knows what a good product is, just the yanks not. Have fun yanks with the RROD sensation and the whole world wishes you a happy waiting for your consoles getting repaired haha don't be mad yanks, buying crap quality products you ask for that haha
More than 1/3 of PS3 are sold in NA.It is not good generalizing you know.Alot of americans also know Sony quality
no lagbox here yo... psn : destined2shine .... currently playing cod4 search and destroy baby
Xbox need japan. ps3 needs north america.
We all know which will succeed
PS3 isn't neglected in N.America.
I agree. 90% of ps2 owners in NA would buy PS3. But as for x360 everything is finished in EU and JAPAN
NA will be gone in 2008 too when MGS 4 and FF13/KZ2 lands
