Nice to see the PS3 pulling ahead of the competition this WW for this year (consoles) and the 3DS holding it down for the handheld haters. The PS3 was ahead of the 360 by 700,000 as well and this early. The Vita's holding great too despite it's $250 price tag. All of the consoles look to be healthy.

MoFo11112452d ago

You make the assumption that they didnt just pull these numbers out of their ass.
They were saying the PS3 was ahead for all of last year as well.When we got the end of quarters turned 360 was ahead and increased the gap
Vgcharts is unreliable dog crap.

@ Ice_Cold

Lmao with a big slap to the knee. Are you kidding? Vgchartz is unreliable all of a sudden? When Vgchartz released their US numbers for the end of March 24 it was all praise and how trustworthy they were from some of the community here.

Link to the comments in the US sales chart for laughs ("PS3 jokes, Vita dying comments")

MaxXAttaxX2452d ago

And by how much did 360 increase the gap?
PS3 closed the gap by 6 mil.
When 360 sells as fast, then we'll talk.

MoFo11112451d ago

Increased gap by 2 million

Dlacy13g2451d ago

@Dante112... VGChartz is unreliable according to everyone..until their console of choice has positive numbers then its the bible. VGChartz is unreliable..just like the NPD's aren't either. Both are based on reported numbers from some retailers and then speculation and trends to fill in the blanks. The only real source to trust are the companies themselves.

VGChartz has some use, its a great database for games and sales history as they will go back and correct numbers, etc.. but its not reliable for the most recent numbers.

moparful992451d ago

The ps3 WAS ahead until the christmas season.. For some reason the 360 sells like gangbusters during christmas... If not for their crazy christmas numbers here in the states the ps3 would have passed it a while ago..

Its a sight to behold that the Nintendo 3DS entertainment console leads the industry by a significant margin.

This was all made possible with the golden combination of boundary breaking tech combined with world class standard setting Nintendo 3DS exclusives. A special thanks to the millions and millions of Nintendo supporters worldwide that allowed their wallets to do the talking. Things are looking might positive for the future of Nintendo and the elite fans.

Rated E For Everyone

MaxXAttaxX2452d ago (Edited 2452d ago )

The hell is wrong with you. Are you PR or something?

""boundary breaking tech""? As in 240p visuals?
""world class standard Nintendo exclusives""? Does that include ports of old games and 70% of the other exclusive crap Wii and DS get that's NOT from a first party or major third party studio?

More like special thanks to Nintendo for dropping the price to a more reasonable level and some good exclusive games. That would have been more than enough.

yabhero2451d ago

For ground breaking tech he's talking about the stereoscopic 3d and for exclusives he's taking about Kid icarus, super mario 3dland, mario kart 7, tales of abyss fatal frame. some others i might mention are resident evil, monster hunter, heroes of ruin, luigi's mansion 2, fire emblem, kingdom hearts and more i cant think of. im not saying he's not overdoing it but there are some great 3ds exclusives not including OOT3D and StarFox

MaxXAttaxX2450d ago (Edited 2450d ago )

I wouldn't call 3D "ground breaking".

I think the Fatal Frame game is a spin-off and goes by a different name.
I agree with the other games, but Mario Kart 7? Really?
(Note: I have nothing against Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 which were great and not the same thing over again or Diddy Kong Racing re-skined as MK7).

And Tales of the Abyss is a port. Already played it on PS2.

A lot of those games aren't even out yet.

Muerte24942452d ago (Edited 2452d ago )

It's only by 265,000 units over Sony's home console ps3. I wouldn't exactly call that being a significant margin. Then again these numbers aren't 100% accurate. NPD monitors USA, Media Create monitors JP, and there isn't currently anyone monitoring EU. But the trend is that Sony products tend to perform better over there than the other competition.

GribbleGrunger2452d ago (Edited 2452d ago )

agreed. it's bewildering how some people manage to see an 8 million gap reduced to a 2.5 million gap as proof that the 360 is outselling the PS3. ASTONISHING. you find yourself trying to explain and being met with the same fanboy accusation ever time.

why is it that on other forums i discuss (the emphasis on 'discuss') this with other 360 owners and everything is fine; no fanboy accusations, no trolling and no personal attacks? what is it about this site that polarises the gamers here?

noone seems to try and get to know anybody. it could be because of the many accounts some people have got... perhaps the fact that you constantly get new members but at the back of your mind there's that niggling feeling that it's just someone with multiple accounts. this makes you question why people would do that and so breeds a mindset of 'mistrust'. it could be that i suppose.

and the bubble system is the worse culprit. some people seem to spend the entire time here trying to reduce someone's bubble count, just because they're trying to mute someone. you can't have a meaningful conversation with 1 or 2 bubbles... 3 is workable but there just shouldn't be a bubble system at all.

the trolls are always going to be there, but perhaps if full conversation was allowed on this site, then 'some' people might just find out they've been making the wrong assumption.

dark-hollow2451d ago

I don't know what the problem with your comments.

Its your right to praise something you like as much as you want, but at least you aren't like the rest of the crowd who constantly attack other consoles.

ShadowSniper2452d ago
