However ps3 went on to beat x360 by 60 000 units
even PS2 went on to beat x360 in terms of total worldwide sales for the week
UNCHARTED reached 750 000 units
Man, the little Xbot ioi who runs the joke of a site can't even inflate 360 sales and undercount PS3 sales enough to keep the 360 out of last place anymore.
Ioi seems to have had a meltdown after the giant holiday PS3 sales and the death of HD-DVD and went on a fanboy tantrum 'correcting' aka slashing PS3 sales numbers by huge amounts and arbitrarily pumping up 360 worldwide sales figures even more.
Things to keep in mind about the fanboy vgchartz site:
* The inflated weekly NPD 360 'estimates' are never corrected - just a quick check against the real numbers shows the 360 constantly with numbers that are 100-200k too high each month
* Various European PS3 numbers are constantly out of date or just plain wrong/undercounted while 360 numbers are bumped up beyond their know sales levels
Poor little ioi, things are just going to get worse and worse as those 125 million PS2 owners make the leap to next gen and the PS3...
GFK released official confirmation that PS3 and X360 are both at 500 000 units in JAPAN
Vg has ps3 at 450k and x360 at 650k???
Vgchartz deflated x360 numbers in NA for OCT/NOV by 180 k and 60k respectively.
At the same time they downgraded PS3 sales by 130k.
VGCHARTZ still havent fixed that
VGCHARTZ x360 numbers are DEFLATED by atleast 1 MILLION
VICE VERSA for PS3 numbers
VGCHARTZ is owned by an XBOT who used to work in MS. This BOT's friend is SIREN --another XBOT who was kicked out of PSU for manupulating GOOD PS3 related NEWS
NEOGAF is owned by 6 MS employees . One of them being AMIR OS/OX
You're an idiot... then why do you keep commenting on how PS3 is beating the 360 by using VGCHARTZ?
"However ps3 went on to beat x360 by 60 000 units
even PS2 went on to beat x360 in terms of total worldwide sales for the week
UNCHARTED reached 750 000 units"
WTF.. if you don't care for their numbers then don't quote them.
how is VG inflating 360 numbers when MS says they sold 17.7 but VG says they sold 16.3?
Dang DS up to 65 million!
Because they said they've SHIPPED 17.7 million, not SOLD.
MS said they have shipped 17.7 million to retailers...so if you think about it...there is roughly 2 million or so 360's sitting on the shelves throughout North America, Europe, and Japen...so they have sold roughly 15.7 million or so....Vg Chartz isn't to far off...
oh okay so VG is sold to customers. Never really knew that actually and I see VG numbers a lot lol... only took the time to ask. heh
I think we all know that the numbers are not 100%. I remember that VG used to have a disclaimer stating so themselves.
But what this does show is a new trend of Sony outselling the 360 on global sales. This is good for Sony, but their userbase still will not overtake the 360 until they start outselling them in the U.S. At their current pace, they would only outsell the 360 by an additional 2.5-3M this year (unless 360 sales simultaneously begin to drop throughought the year).
However, this may be the start of just that... with the game lineup of 08 and another price drop before the holidays, I wouldn't be surprised to see Sony outselling the 360 everywhere by 09. Sony fanboys will have some awesome games to enjoy in 08... but I think you will have to wait another year before you can really begin to brag about sales.
#2 the PS3 sells like crap in the States which makes up over 40% of the video game market so unless the 360 stops selling all together the PS3 will NEVER catch up. It's not that hard to understand....If you can't win the USA you can not win. Here are some fresh photo's from Bet Buy to show how well that door stop sells.
But regardless to what console you prefer. We all know DS will sell like crazy, Wii is sold out, 360 sales stay steady and good, and PS3 gains more and more momentum heading into the new year.
I think those NA sales for PSP are on the low side. I can't find a black slim PSP any where. Not to mention that the Silver and White are still sold out at most stores.
The only one i can ever find is the star wars one
mimicked Chilla Black: "Surprise, Surprise!"
Brits know what im talking about. lol
unfortunately i do to ;)
christ you've got me reminiscing about blind date- that was one ugly, annoying presenter
"Life is full, full of surprises"
And the PS2 really is future proof.
theres a world outside of America? nahhhh...
The U.S is the only country in the world and it's the BEST (minus the lack of universal health care, waging war on a continual basis, running as a military industrial complex, millions of unemployed and uninsured workers, and about 1/3 of it's population falling under the category of obese)!
U.S.A. is the BEST!
Seriously though, people need to get out and see the world. It will open your eyes.
Ya EZ CHEEZ, whe should have universal health care, that way many of the lazy homeless people (who don't try to find a job or go work in those labor lines without having to give an address and ge paid in cash) will be getting free healthcare that all of us pay for. I mean, another couple thousand dollars in taxes each year isn't too much, is it? Abe Lincoln didn't even go to college, he learned to read and read old law books and look where he got. Now, imagine what you could do today with all the libraries and free videos of college classes online that you could access at the library. America is the land of opportunity, so you have no excuse to not get a job and pay for your own health care.
What! Lincoln became president of the United States by reading some old law books therefore we can all be president!? come on guy, you're fooling yourself if you believe thats how it works. First of all, that was a very different time, and second, you'd either have to be really smart or know how to cut through all the bullsh!t involved to be able to make it to the top like that, from just reading some books.
And this nonsense, about "opportunity", doesnt mean everybody gets the nice house and the nice car and the big money if they just work for it. But contraire, alot of people work their @sses off and struggle their whole lives and never get anywhere big in this country. You been believing the bullsh!t to much. And i am a American so i know what im talking about
You don't know what you're talking about. I wasn't meaning that you could become president by reading old books, but you can sure as heck get a freakin job. There is the opportunity out there to get your own job and be able to pay for your health care. Or you could invent something like Bill Gates, he didn't even finish college. Or take JK Rowling. She was dirt poor, had an idea, and is a filthy millionaire right now. Or what about Oprah? She was also dirt poor, decided to make a show, and is now way up on the totem pole (or however you spell it). I swear to you that if you have the have the will to get out of poverty you will be able to find a way. I pointed out the library cause that's where you could start if you aren't too imaginitive. Dudes, you all need to quit ranting about how bad america is, cause we have it a lot better off then many countries. There's a lot of bad stuff going on in the world right now, and we aren't really dealing with much of it back here, so quit whining and start appreciating being free. Artards
All those examples you gave are the exception not the rule, but you seem to believe that we can all be that. It doesnt work that way and you know it, you just wanna believe that bullsh!t cuz it makes you feel good about your country. I know you dont need a college degree or even a good education to be rich, but most people who are smarter than some of the people you listed have not made it. The fact is, most of us just have average jobs and make average amounts. Let's see you put your belief to the test and see how far you go?
People laughed when Sony said they will continue to support it for years. Well look who is laughing now....
Unfortunately i do mate..... lol.
Nice to see you, to see you nice. oh dear.
good ol' brucey.
nice sales now the ps3 just need to keep on widening the sales
and the ps2 is still selling strong, thats pretty remarkable
VG Charts again another DUP story after the first one was posted with the updated JAP numbers.
I'll wait for NPD so I can see how off VG was then I'll factor/Guess the misstakes for the other markets not covered by NPD.
i find it pretty ridiculous myself how accurate vg charts estimates sales right down the the first unit, like PS2 227,901 . They should just leave it at 228,000 cuz that kind of guess is just dumb
people disagree to that? so they think NG chartz knows that the DS has sold 65,637,784 untis and not 65,637,785. Damn thats pretty accurate
a few monthes ago, these charts were gospel, funny how when the PS3 outsells the 360 they're not to be trusted.... hmmmm
Whats your response if the trend is true, and the ps3 is leading in hardware/software sales.
What would you say?
How's NPD going to prove Japanese or Europe numbers wrong? all it will prove is how off their American numbers were...
And remember NPD numbers do not include the sales made at Walmart...which is huge (For all console makers).
The PS3 outsold your dumb 360 by 60,000 units. And your response is that the figures are wrong. Don't be retarded, you are just hoping your little xbox will be able to deal with the PS3 this year, and it won't happen dude.
im a sony fanboy Fatman and id love to see the 360 be outsold by ps3, im just pointing out that it a little foolish that vgchartz knows sales figures right down to the first unit of measure and doesnt round off to the neareast thousandth
Now its PS3's turn! oh yeah!
The bottom line you Sony douches fail to see, 8 MILLION units they have to sell JUST TO CATCH UP! and when the 360 drops to $199 range this spring and Sony can't because of Blue gay dvds
I think the price point is going to sit at this level for a while throughout this year. I'm sure both sony and MS feel comfortable enough with the amount of units they are moving currently. If they weren't, then we would have seen price drops by now. It would have to make sense for MS to do that. The only reason they would is if sales start plummeting and PS3 starts to drastically overtake them.
Now that the format war is over, Don't think that Sony won't be able to price drop as well. After all, they are the ones who will be reaping the cash rewards from winning the format war.
Obviously someone should have paid a little more attention in economics when they explained supply and demand. Trust me, the last thing both companies want to do is start a bidding war.
gonna take awhile too overpass xbox huh sony droids?,,,ohh and whats up with no american charts..someone needs too look into it..i wanted too comment on how ut3 is a flop in america...and how it took 60 weeks for resistance too sell over a million copies in america....and dont fool yourselves...America will always be the top dog where developers look at those charts...with japan slowly losing interest in the next gen machines and the only place sony can call "sony land" is spain,france.....lets see the next couple of weeks should be interesting if the ps3 can add some sales with the warner going blu news....my guesss...both the 360 and ps3 will be in a stagnant state until either one receives a price drop...and with their blu victory I dont see sony dropping their price any more. we shall see...
@relcom...you call 74k ps3s sold this week in japan any interest in next gen...you dont think the wii is next gen right..i mean...since it plays games that are ported from the ps2...but way to circle up the wagons and defend that ps3...
@maddens_losers...coming from one of the ps3 horses asses I wont even bother commenting...we both know your not bright enough too debate anything worthy in the conversation..just label me a troll...not a blind one but whatever...
@swordfish...just like talk when unreal tournament 3,lair,and ratchet and clank was suppose too sell some ps3's..but they couldnt even sell software...please shut the hell up and try and be adults in this conversation and bring up some valid points instead of just trying too blindly defend....3 people yet all these have no valid points....i can see where this goes....the disagree is right on the side kids...
How do you explain the PS3 outselling the PS2 by more and more each week? Exactly, you can't cause you'd be wrong.
just stop typing already. You sound like a horses arse. I would say misery loves company, but it looks like Universal is wising up as well - I'm sure NBC will love that one!
Oh and please, please change your avatar; it makes your writings seem even more desperate and ridiculous than they really are.
lol omfg. you have no idea do you. the ps3 as jus started to overtake. do you think its gonna stay at 60k every week. do you not kno mgs4 is coming soon. do you not kno that kz2 is coming soon. like it or not but that gonna boost ps3 loads and keep a big gap between the ps3 and 360. expect to see 500k gap and more on quiet months when the console gets games in japan. and even bigger on holidays. its not a question of if. its a question of when.
It's all about 360s headstart, it's the only reason 360 leads PS3 in sales figures. it's pretty much a given that PS3 has a longer life expectancy than 360. at this pace, it will take no longer than 4-5 months after 360's discontinued for ps3 to overtake it in total sales.
lol the games you jus mention are not system sellers. rachet and clank is a very good game but platform games dont boost sales much. but fps do. hyped fps sell consoles even better and thats what kz2. also msg4 is a proven system seller. and when mgs4 and ff13 hits japan its gonna sell hundreds of thousands. you dont kno much about this subject so in future you should just keep your mouth closed.
It is the second week in the roll that PS3 has outsold Xbox 360 more than 60K now. This week is weaker number for all consoles, but PS3 still outsold Xbox 60K. It means the gap percentage increases. Wait you see the number for the next few weeks with the impact of Blu-ray win, it will be very interesting to see how big the gap will further be widening. A lot of people who used to sit on the fence waiting for the format war to end will jump on PS3 in a massive way.
It's funny how the 360 will NEVER reach 30 million sold throughout it's life span......AhAHAHHAHHAHA
per month, and 360 sales staying exactlly the same as they are now (200,000 units per month)
it would take the PS3 9.7 years to catch up. assuming nothing changes from this report. (7mill units / 60,000per month / 12 months = 9.7 years)
the xbox will at one point in about 3 years maybe, bust out the 720 and claim themselves the winner of this generation. rationalizing that once they moved to the new generation, this generation is over.
im just glad they are all selling well including the ps3.
60,000 per week not month.
that would make it about 2.24 years then.
haha math is your friend... 60k per week, = 3.1 million per year difference... oh right.. i forgot something.. the ps3 has noooooooooooooooooooooooo games... this is hilarious
dont u understand the PS3 hasnt released even ONE big title yet? Dont u understand it is still 150$ more expensive and wht u are saying just doesnt even make sense. Isnt it obvious the PLAYSTATION is already outselling a almost Wii price console already? So u think its just going to stay this way or the 360 is gonna outsell the PS3 again by 200,000...instead of the PS3 increasing sales because a.)its a new system b.) people love Playstation c.) people are waiting for the price to drop(although it seems plenty are finding it more wanted already at 400$, with not one "blockbuster" game) d.)Blu Ray winning so soon and how the PSN is TOTALLY being revamped next year is also going to help.
The Xbox 360 doesnt stand a chance in reality. It not gonna only be getting beaten by 200,000 consoles a month even THIS year...its gonna get worse because price is gonna drop and there will be at least 3-5 BIG hyped games released plus all the other good games and multiplatforms. It just gonna win, a price cut of 50$ isn't going to magically change this. If they wanted the Xbox 360 that bad, they would be buying it at the 150$ cheaper price it already is. They dont. They want the PS3. It's very obvious.
150$ isn't a little bit. Its almost a whole other Xbox 360. The tides have BEGUN to change very much. Its not gonna stop and go the other way regardless of what Microsft does. Sony now has momentum going and have fixed everything people were b!tching about. Come the end of 2008 with the catalogue of games it will have and the price and even the games that will be coming in 2009(probally God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, FF13 and Versus, Resistance 2)... the PS3 isnt still only going to be winning by 200,000 consoles a month.
Microsoft ain't winning sh1t, if you think they will catch up to wii you are sadly mistaken.
I think all the consoles are doing well which is good. 360 has slowed a little but will no doubt jump back with the next price drop. wii still beggars belife and Ps3 looks like it starting to get into its stride. Now a lot of 360 owners will point out that at its current rate the ps3 will take 5 years to catch up if all console sales stay the same, but theres no doubt they will all have ups and downs so i would say its impossible to say at this point who will sell the most. Im hoping they all get a good share of the market. After all if there was only one console it would be a bad time for gamers. As it stands its looks likey to be the best generation yet for games.
The PS3's price drop was because Sony admittedly F'd up in their market research and over priced the unit. 360 is price dropping because they cannot move enough units to keep up with PS3/keep their sales up.
Big Difference. If you put the sales on a graph it would show Sony's steady increase and it would show MS leveling off. What happens after leveling off unless something is done about it? You guessed it......a plummet on the chart (thats why their price drops would occur at this point, just to keep momentum, which they are failing to do) Sony doesn't have to do this because they are proving right now that they are able to grow at the current price level they are at (when this changes, they will price drop too) Simple economics guys.
Also, all of you xbox fans are working off of the assumption that the entire market is fair game. incorrect. Sony has a proven track record of retention. Meaning, many people who bought PS1's purchased PS2's. Hmm what do you think the other 111Mil. Sony customers who haven't purches a PS3 will typically end up doing. (You guessed it, purchase a PS3)
Nintendo is shocking the world because their is a growing trend of consumers who are purchasing a 360 and a Wii or a PS3 and a Wii.
I hope you all learned something today.
man the wii and DS are unstoppable. I seriously felt wii fad would fall sooner than later. I guess not. If this keeps up till summer, its going to change my mind and it can't be a fad. Still not buying one though. lol
again according to VG charts:
man all three sony systems out sold the 360?? wow and this without the big sellers. PS3 seems to be slowly increasing the gap worldwide sales.
woot on uncharted! I hope uncharted and heavenly sword get sequels soon!!
You can(t rely on Vg chartz cuz in fact they deflate 360 sales and not PS3 , halo sold 8.1 milion and not 6 , mass efect has sold 1.6 million and not 1.2.By the way they had mass efect at 700 000 just a week ago and now all of a sudden the numbers have shot up.
Either they are guessing the numbers eithr they are just uncompetent
ROFLMAO, the PS3 is doomed, DOOMED.
^^^^BEWARE OF TROLL^^^^^^^
Super Mario Galaxy has already surpassed Twilight Princess in sales. I really think that SMG is going to take many new and casual gamers to their next level of gaming seriousness. This is good for all three consoles.
TANOD has said many times when VG-Charts was guessing the 360 was ahead that VG was fake and worthless.
How on earth do you keep bubbles you are one of the most biased ignorant ppl on this site and yet you still have more than one bubble you must either have alot of girlfriends on this site like bloodmask and the mart or you have alot of diff accounts its gotta be 1 of the 2 sooooooo which is it ?
When VGC has anything pro PS3 VGC is the tops with numbers but when the 360 is ahead it's all B.S and MS pays them ect. I found out he is from a third world $hit hole so that tells me alot about him. I would be angry too if I did not have toilet paper .
its funny, about a month ago 360 fans constantly rubbed VG chart sale data in sony fans faces, with sony saying they are not reliable. Now it seems it has switched since its not in 360 fans favor.( so PS3 fans don't get to exicted) haha what can happen in a month..
However, at this rate the 360 is going to be the one to lag behind all of the competition this year. PS3 is steadily gaining ground and widening the gap. outstanding!
Once it gets to 100k over 360 weekly, 360 is caught in 10 months! But with the heat PS3 has? It will happen fast!
I don't consider that as a great performance.They got the jap market for themselves(360 don' exist) and moreover they got Bluray the format of this generation and they only beat the 360 by 60 000 !!! according to sony fanbvoys 360 is a piece of crap so why can't the all mighty beautiful way superiour PS3 just kill the 360;
Maybe people don't really care about power and chips and graphic card but they care about games
