Nice to see Uprising crack the top deserves it!

Well said good sir

@ people disagreeing
I know you don't like LX but what he's saying is true for once. Kid Icarus Deserves to be top ten.
Gaming101  +   1410d ago
If anyone really cared about which game/system is selling the most, why not post global numbers? It's right there on the site.... oh wait, the 360's numbers are only hot in North America, sorry lol
CaptainofCrush  +   1410d ago
They were posted.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1410d ago
Raccoon City at #1?
Sigh.... sales.

On another note. How old is that VGChartz pic up there?
And photo editing software was used to alter it so that the 3DS and Vita coexist in Wii/360/PS3 numbers from 2008?
Is it cause the PS3 to 360 ration doesn't looks like it does now?
LOL fanboys

it clearly says USA sales in the title. and isn't pretending there's some microsoft conspiracy just a little bit last decade? it's time to grow up now. you're on a video game website crying about something that's 100% justified.

EDIT: Those are some unimpressive ME3 numbers.

To all the stupid people who commented on this thread ^
No duh it says US, my point was for people who actually care about sales figures, US sales analysis is pointless if only analyzed in a bubble, which in this case it is. If you studied economics (which you didn't) then you'd understand my point, but nonetheless you're just a lowly pile of trolls.

Who said anything about being not justified anyway, can you please come up with a coherent thought that actually makes sense please, thank you.

its a stinky game maybe resident evil 6 will be a lot better. hoping it will be anyways
Godmars290  +   1410d ago
Except by all counts its a game not worth the sales its getting. That its broken.

What I find interesting is that ME3 only did 90K on the 360 while the PS3 numbers didn't even make the top ten.

That's the damage Bioware is trying to fix with the bad ending mess.
Captain Qwark 9  +   1409d ago
well to be fair its been out for about 4 weeks now and has already sold millions so 90k isnt bad at all esp considering all the negative press. most of the die hard fans prob bought it day 1 so to be putting up numbers like that is still impressive. and it also started on xbox and does the majority of its sales there so the ps3 dropping out of the top 10 isnt really surprising.

plus i like the ending
Krakn3Dfx  +   1410d ago
Yeah, it's great to see a shit game oversell, just lets Capcom know they can continue making shit games and expect a return on them.

I know I'M excited about more shitty games from Capcom.
Varodor  +   1410d ago
sorry, forgot to ask you[carried my copy of game back to the store]

Go America buy the crap . Make ORC 2 possible. /s

Get the f**k out of charts ...COD
Captain Qwark 9  +   1409d ago
i havent played it yet but i dont see why your so upset its selling. if it does well enough perhaps they will get a second try and will listen to feedback and learn from their mistakes. then we will get a much better game hopefully.

and if not, dont buy it, no need to get your panties in a bunch over it.
Game4life  +   1410d ago
Big drop for Talke of grace f. Hopefully it will have some legs
Blastoise  +   1409d ago
It still has to hit europe (Which i think will this summer?) I think it will do quite well, JRPGs always seem to do better in Europe than the US
Game4life  +   1409d ago
Well its good pretty well. It had a bigger first and second week than vesperia did. Almost three times the opening. Not sure how it will do in europe to be honest as some of the tales games dont seem to do well just from what Ive noticed. Example: tales of abyss on the 3ds. It looks like it did terrible in europe. But that just my perspective though.

Never know though since vgchartz is not always accurate
MasterCornholio  +   1410d ago
It's depressing to see a terrible game in first place. But I'm pretty sure sales for it will die down quickly.

Reaper9937  +   1410d ago
PS VITA is doing pretty crappy, Sony lower the damn price already...
fei-hung  +   1410d ago
Considering the price difference, it aint so bad. I think they will announce a price drop for the PS3 and Vita.
tiffac008  +   1410d ago
Sony needs to bring out more games first before they do a price drop. More apps will be welcomed as well.

@AWBrawler (below)

The Wii is still cheaper with a bigger library. This will continue until the Vita gets more games and a price drop.

Blastoise  +   1409d ago
Oh come on more games? Its only been out about a month and its got a fair few good games already. Metacritic has 16 games that are all over 7 out of 10, a good chunk of which are in the mid-high 8`s.
tiffac008  +   1409d ago
I think your missing the point.

The context of my post is tied with the argument of Sony doing a price drop and how more games can shore up more sales that can cover the lost revenue made from the price drop.

You can't expect Sony to just drop the price without releasing more software do you? A lack of software momentum will make the price drop irrelevant in the long run.

Wii over Vita again? Like is this crap for real? wii sales are supposed to be dying.

Kid Icarus at number 4! Not bad! I'm one of those owners.
ozstar  +   1410d ago
Kid Icarus has done pretty damn well for an IP considered dead, and considered by many, to be a spin off from a character in Smash Brothers!

(this is a joke, i hope)
CaptainofCrush  +   1410d ago
Once again the PSV has been crushed to dust.
Lulz_Boat  +   1409d ago
one again, the Wii has been crushed to dust in global sales, because PS Vita win, again.
ozstar  +   1410d ago
Not buying Revelations, and buying 400k copies of Raccoon Sh***y?

Well the economists, Pachter, and Angry Birds Dev's are correct, handhelds are dead in America.
andibandit  +   1410d ago
Handhelds arent dead, but i dont see them taking off either. Consoles cover the home gaming, and smartphones cover the "On the go" light gaming.

That leaves the Vita to primaily get the segment of people who needs to play heavier games on the go.

The 3DS is in a similar situation, but nintendo has been catering more to the younger audience. This has gotten them a foothold in alot of households and the ripples have been spreading from there.

The Vita is trying to break out from the PSP mold with alot of brilliant tech, but that in itself isn't a clear market strategy.

Judging by the Target, Best Buy, Toys R US weekly adds, it's no wonder why console sales in the US are what they are. I've seen ONE add from each of those stores since Vita released. Sony can't win in the States...
AWBrawler  +   1410d ago
better chance here than japan
BinaryMind  +   1410d ago
Yep, Ninja Gaiden 3 bombed hard.
Droidbro  +   1410d ago
I've never really been a Playstation fan, but it's a shame to see such a good piece of hardware go no where (Vita). I guess dedicated handhelds really are dying. :'(
yabhero  +   1410d ago
@ handhelds dying
Guess you missed the part where 3ds is selling 150,000 a week
@ vita
I don't have one I have a 3ds but it wish it was doing better... Cut that price to 180-200 Sony and you can add my buy to your list!
wumster  +   1409d ago
If Sony did cut the price, I think it would pick up dramatically. The Vita is a fantastic piece of tech and I think it's worth the price. However, some don't understand the tech behind the price.
Droidbro  +   1409d ago
From the article: "3DS - 46,926"
From yabhero: "Guess you missed the part where 3ds is selling 150,000 a week"

Since when does 46,926=150,000?
360GamerFG  +   1410d ago
It has been 6 weeks and PS VITA has still not managed to sell the 500k SONY had hoped for the first 3 weeks.
Then again these are sold to consumer numbers so they probably already shipped 500k 2 weeks ago.
xursz  +   1409d ago
First off, you're always trolling Sony. Second, the Vita reached 500k in the US within the first weeks.
360GamerFG  +   1409d ago
Can I get a link to that?
xursz  +   1409d ago
Links to How often you troll Sony? Just go through your own comments history.
Frankfurt  +   1409d ago
xursz, i like how you have nothing to back you up.
ZeroWil  +   1409d ago
I decided to look this up, as I was curious, and I think it can be said that the PS Vita didn't sell 500K in the first three weeks of sale in the US (though it may have by now).

Gamespot reported 325K units in the first month (US only).

For another 'perspective', Forbes reported that 620K units were sold in the two weeks following the US, European, and Australian launches.

One thing is fast becoming clear: This gen is winding down. Sales for all the home consoles are falling rapidly...

Bring on the 720 and Orbis next year!
