keep it up sony, outselling the 360 software with games like bioshock, gears,halo3, mass effect on the martket.....just can't wait for the big guns for next year
edit: read it wrong, but still nice job sony
talk about denial..looks like ut3 sold a whopping 41K...is it now safe too say anything exclusive selling on ps3 is death...maybe those people are waiting for the xbox 360 version?...now add these hardware numbers too that fake worldwide sales charts and xbox 360 clearly beat out the ps3.
@ceruliansky...so its because the ps3 only has 3.3 million consoles it is selling software so lousy...let me remind you that at this time last year the xbox 360 had almost 5 million xbox 360's and was able too sell
2 million copies of gears of war...7 weeks on the charts...motorstorm has been on the charts for 42 weeks and is barely at 1.5 million..sad part of that is its bundled with 80 gig machines...
Xbox 360 software 2,757,243
PS3 software 942,195
2,757,243 / 942,195 = Approximately 1/3
Xbox 360 installed base in US 10 million
PS3 installed base in the US 3.3 million
10 million / 3.3 million = Approximately 1/3
Of course the usual vgchartz.com inflated 360 numbers for both software and hardware get canceled out in the comparision.
Forget about Sony and MS: Check out the Wii, and people say Nintendo don't sell software.. damn
I think hes talking about the world sales in which case hes correct
am i seeing this correct the ps3 has sold more software in NA? Wow is the tide really turning?
i am sorry i didnt read the title correctly the xbox outsold the ps3 in terms of software.
However PS3 outsold X360 in terms of both softwares and hardwares in EU and JAPAN last week
@tanod your right the ps3 out sold the 360 in software in EU and japan. if you add up all the numbers including the us the 360 outsold the ps3 by over 1.5 million.
360 - 3,756,473
ps3 - 2,096,683
VGchartz is terrible. But paints a pretty good picture of sales trends even though the numbers are both off. It is still an indicator of how well the PS3 is pushing sales with 1/3 the Userbase.
I am BLADE mask.

Now I see why you only have one bubble.
Wow Harry u seriously need to get a life.
This post is about software sales in north america not worldwide hardware sales.Total hardware sales was posted previously.Your comments are for another thread not this,so stick to the topic.
I think you should be more concerned with the fact that UT3 is a flop
They didn't add North American totals too the "worldwide" charts..lol.
I misunderstood you.
And even then it wasn't till half way through Dec when it came out.
On top of that, UT3 is still to come out in the other regions where most of the PS3 install base is located.
Ps3 Worldwide for weeks ending 22/23 12
X360 Worldwide for weeks ending 22/23 12
and this is VGchartz, so subtract 300-400k from each console.
The PS3 is holding its own. Especially considering the user base. At least we can agree ps3 folks are out buying games, which games? Its up to them.
Both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were selling software the previous week at the same rate in respect to ratio of install base. The PlayStation 3 has 1/3rd of the install base Microsoft has, and incidentally also shows 1/3rd of the amount of software sold to the Xbox 360. So it isn't doing "worst" than the Xbox 360; when looking at the software figures its important to also take into consideration the hardware sold.
I'm surprised Nintendo supposedly sold over 700,000 Wii's in just a week. I thought there was a supply issue with the consoles? And yet it sold that much in a week? Wow.
You keep going on and on about how the install base of the ps3 is 1/3 so the game sales are fine bla bla bla.... You forget that last year the 360 had MULTIPLE games sell over 1 million.. The only games the ps3 is able to do the same thing with is ones they give away free with the system. So NO sales ARE NOT on par with the 360 software wise no matter how you try to twist the numbers. Gears sold over a million in a month, did uncharted do that? Sony's biggest title yet... NO. Now go back to saying 2008 will be PS3's year... just like how 2007 was gonna be PS3's year... you people are funny.
What exactly is wrong with my comment? Am I wrong? No. I am right. So what are you disputing, or even claiming - that the Xbox 360 did better in its first year?
If you want to talk about stats; naturally a console with no competition will do better in general. Nonetheless, its a fact that the Xbox 360 is a software selling machine. But as you're a stats man, I can produce an interesting one to spin a positive light on the PlayStation 3. It has sold atleast 8million consoles worldwide (with its strongest territory, Europe, only launching the console in March) despite its lack of AAA franchises, despite its ridiculous pricepoints and despite the fierce competition from the Xbox 360 and Wii, whereas it took Microsoft almost a year and a half to sell 10million consoles. That's a hardware stat, software stats are rather embarrassing for Sony but this particular past week was not derogative, it's actually respectable for its install base. It is the same ratio as the software king that is the 360. So although it isn't terrific, it's still decent and certainly not bad.
Again, what is your point? Do you even have one?
You just contradicted yourself... let me show you.
This is you: "The PlayStation 3 has 1/3rd of the install base Microsoft has, and incidentally also shows 1/3rd of the amount of software sold to the Xbox 360. So it isn't doing "worst" than the Xbox 360"
This is me: "NO sales ARE NOT on par with the 360 software wise no matter how you try to twist the numbers. Gears sold over a million in a month, did uncharted do that? Sony's biggest title yet... NO."
This is you: "software stats are rather embarrassing for Sony but this particular past week was not derogative"
You pwned yourself.
Why don't you finish the rest of my sentence ?
"That's a hardware stat, software stats are rather embarrassing for Sony but this particular past week was not derogative, it's actually respectable"
Wait. Wait. Wait.
My entire comment was based on this weeks figures and everything I've said is true. People will just press disagree because they don't want to know. And I never said sales were on par you silly billy, I said sales this week were the same from a ratio perspective.
Makes sence.... 1/3 of the machines, 1/3 of software sold.
Im sure many of you will manage to spin this to your "own" means... enjoy stat whores...
Screw Sony's PS3 and their delusional [email protected] THEY'VE LOST.
And they know it,but just can't admit it.
The PS3 did really great especially when it dont have a big install base..
No they didn't. They don't have any multi-million sellers that aren't given away free with the system. How is that GOOD? How? Please tell me? The 360 had MULTIPLE million sellers it's first year... so NO the PS3 is NOT holding it's own. Hardware sales lag way behind with TWO BIG PRICE CUTS in the FIRST YEAR. Software sales lag way way behind... How is this GOOD for sony? You can never catch up by always selling less than the other guy.
answer me these questions 3....
how many 360's sold in launch year?
how many PS3's sold in launch year?
why DO you randomLY use CapS?
What was Sony's market share last gen? What is Sony's market share now? The PS3 was supposed to sell MORE than the 360, it didn't. You lose. Oh and to answer your first questions the 360 hade HUGE shortages its first 3-4 months, the PS3 has been sitting on the store shelves since about 2 weeks after it launched.
I am so sick of the vast number of sony fanboys running around N4G. This site used to be a bit more balanced now it's just crazy. I don't even know why I bother with this site anymore. It's as if people that are so loyal to Sony have abolutly nothing better to do with thier time than to TRY to find positive crap about thier failing system. Yes FAILING. Sony said themselves if they lost ANY market share they would look at that as a failuer well buddy... they lost a sh!t load of market share, they are DEAD FVCKING LAST. And you trolls just cant't deal with that. and its just funny to read what all you poeple type saying sony gave birth this this game and that when MOST of them started someplace else and you are too ignorant to know that. Like FF or MG or just about any good "sony" game. Maybe you wouldn't spend so much fvcking time here if you acctually had some games to play. Personally I have 15 retail 360 games and about 20 arcade games... I also have about 30 HD DVD's. So feel blessed that I took time out of my busy day to put you in your place.
@below: You lose the great big genetic gamble that is life. You got stuck being ugly and stupid with a small pen!s and no friends...
About PS2's market share... How many games are sold there nowadays... yeah lots right... EA (you know the biggest game company in the world) made over 50% of thier money off the 360 last year. More than the Wii, PS2, PS3, PSP, and DS combined.
Oh and I've been playing games since I got my Commadore64 when I was 8, probably before you were born. Good old LOAD or RUN.... Toy Bizzare one of my favorite C64 games... ahh I think I'm gonna go play around with my C64 emulator now. Later I'm done with you fools.
>I< lose? what do i lose exactally? the only console games that i really want that arent available on PC are MGS, LBP, FF, all PS3 games, hence why i bought one. All the good 360 games, Bioshock, Huxley, Alan Wake, all available for my PC where they run/look much better than their uglier cousin siblings.
The PS2's "market share" is still around. How old are gamers these days? 5?
You kids know nothing.
Hey Toxic. Take it easy man.No need to get angry over a piece of plastic
wouldn't you be mad too if morons like yourself were constantly attacking the 360? ps3 fans get mauled for defending their system. i have both a 360 and a ps3, but you act like everyone else is crazy when you sir are just a much fanboy as they are
i hate u fanboys why do u care so much about witch system sells more, whichever system is right for you go play the games and shut the hell up, ima go play on my 360
Why because the more software and hardware sold the greater the support a console will get hence a better game's selection. This is why sales stats is revelent to me at least.
Edit:JU i am not saying it will lead to better sequels rather more software and hardware sales will encourgae devs to develop for a particular platform.It is just common sense. I do agree that the more sussesful a game dosen't necessarily means a better sequel. DMC2 is a good example but i was just trying to explain to Numba why software and hardware sales is important to some gamers myself included.
I do not think, that just # sold will guarantee a successful game or a better successor. Often to much money ruins a franchise. A critical number is important to keep a studio alive - but to much money lets it drown. Somewhere in the middle is usually fine to keep them hungry for more.
That said, I am fine with the performance. I think 360 and Wii numbers are overrated. The first 5 titles together make around 2M total sales. The only new title in there is Mario Galaxy (maybe you can call Forza 2 "new" as well), the other 4 are usually bundled (is Wii Play ?), and the top title is Wii Sports. A number alone is just a number. (Btw: #6 TO #20 totals to < 1.9M).
so now the wii is selling more software & hardware than the competition. i knew i shouldn't have bought that copy of mario party,look what i did!!!.
the crappy wii games out sold the 360 games and ps3 games.. Who the hell waste there money on wii games???? Lol what a piece of crap.. Wii is going to ruin the game industry..
Sony and ms are probably thinking why didnt we just release a new system with ps2 and xbox hardware and call it Pii and Xii.. lol.. Than make games that look exactly the same... Woooooo more money for us..
The wii is nothing more than a smaller game cube with a wireless controller with motion sensors.. And the games are the same as the game cube except you move your arms around like a wild man..
i buy crappy wii games....lol
The Wii is not a crappy console. Neither is the software, that may be your opinion but many people enjoy everything about the Wii.
Also, the Wii is the cheapest console on the market (besides the PS2) and parents are making the right choice by buying it for their kids for Christmas.
i buy wii games
No, sorry the software on the wii is sh!t, besides 2-3 mario/zelda/metriod games.
No one except a wiitard will argue against the above stated fact.
To us Hardcore yes its crap but to the casuals no. Please respect other peoples choice.
YEAH,everybody buys the crappy games, nobody buys the games that are wort buying....NOT... i have 10 games and no one is a crappy game
Just because your mommy won't buy you a wii doesn't mean wii games a crappy games.
Its not that your mom doesn't loves you, maybe its because she can't afford one or the supply issue made it impossible for her to find one for christmas.
for PS3 is developers suicide. Unreal Tournament 3 41K, LOL. Why would a game producer want to make a game for the console with the lowest install base and the poorest gamess to console attach rate.
Say your prayers Kojima, when MGS4 flops on the PS3 in sales. Then Konami is forced to go over your head to recoup investment costs and ports it to the 360. Same goes to you Square/Enix.
It's one thing to be a Sony lemming on N4G, but when big time producers are Sony lemmings it is just too funny. Maybe Kojima needs a refresher in Business 101.
Dude your more than likely some 14 year old who had the 360 bought for him and cant afford the PS3, hence the hate towards it, but i dont think your really in the right position to lecture on Kojima's business sence.
can you please explain to me in a "business sense" why making a PS3 exclusive is "financially" a sound business move.
Even on Japanese themed games it would make more sense to do a Wii exclusive seeing how the Wii is crushing the PS3 in Japan in sofware sales and install base.
Mighty douche - I think you mean business "sense." And unless Sony or MS has paid a lot of money I would be surprises to see any title remain exclusive - it just doesn't make sense. Especially now that developers are starting to figure out the strengths of both systems and can (if they work at it) make a great game on both systems.
Sure, you lose a few dollars from the idiots that would say - I am not buying it because it isn't exclusive. But the gamers on the other system would more than make up for it. But if you are getting paid ten million then it changes the story a bit.
By the way - see that the Devil May Cry is (allegedly) better on the PS3 because they are allowed to store the game on the HDD - I hope that pushes MS to allow the same thing. In fact, once you do that I think MS wins the console race from a power standpoint because a lot of processing power is being used to decompress the code as it streams off the DVD - if you can do it in advance then you can use that power for other things. Of course, I am not sure anyone really knows how to use the power but that is a different story.
MS will allow using HDD for games... http://www.engadget.com/200...
'Even on Japanese themed games it would make more sense to do a Wii exclusive seeing how the Wii is crushing the PS3 in Japan in sofware sales and install base.'
No it wouldn't look at the sales of 3rd party games on the wii, most bomb. Unless they are aimed at the more casual market they have bombed. No More Hero's and Knights recently experienced this. Whereas 3rd party ps3 games have done well in japan
Yes you do have a point however remember the console war is still in its early stages.I am sure developers look to more variables than just current software sales to determine weather to go exclusive. For example Konami might actually have a deal with Sony for the MGS movie which might actually earn them alot of money. Others like hardware specs might also be a big factor as some might want the space provided by blu-ray or the HDMI 1.3 support. Also developers might want to developed exclusively for a system that they think will eventually win so that they will be in a better position when it does. My point is although software sale's is the most important variable to devs. It is not the sole factor to determine development for a particular platform for some devs as there are other factors too. Square i remember repeatly mentioned that the PS3 allows their vision for FF to come true. Who knows?.
PS3tards didn't/can't read the damn article before posting idiocy... PS3 did NOT outsell the 360 by any means. The PS3 outsold the xbox, yes.
I don't think you read what this chart is for.
... and 2.7 million > 0.9 million... unless you actually add the "3" from "PS3" I don't understand where people see Sony coming out on top... so I, too, don't understand your comment.
"PS3 did NOT outsell the 360 by any means."
PS3 and 360 are hardware. PS3 outsold the 360 in hardware. I know it's a software chart.
...yeah the PS3 did NOT sell as much software as it's counterpart, the 360... this article had nothing to do with selling consoles :)
Im talking about ps3 and 360..
But yes to what you are saying.
what part of that do you not get?
i buy wii games not crappy ones though but i also got a 360 and more of my money goes to microsoft, dont got a ps3 cause the software doesnt impress me maybe gow 3 and ffxiii i think mgs4 will come to the 360 and i think ff13 will come to the 360 if the dont i dont care
its for pussies and people who like crappy games.. lol.. Or kids under 12.. so if ur a kid enjoy the wii.. If you like real games buy a ps3 or 360..
Why dont you just buy a gamecube? Its the same thing.. And its way cheaper..
You really do hate the Wii.
OMG real games!!! i have been fooled again, what have i been playing all this year, fake games!!!! Great wii games, thats what i have been playing
I feel the same way about Little Big Planet.. its for kids and pussies!
Your first title on the list starts in the 20's........UT3 DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMNNNNNNNN should have came out on the 360.
first PS#3 game in in the 20's but they sold 900K?
These numbers are way off, don't trust VG charts
