All this time I thought Xbox had been outselling the Ps3 for the last two years...

@wane yeah, I know but these rumored sales are still impressive especially coming from VGChartz(who according to most people don't do a good job tracking Ps3 sales)

You do know this is a rumor right?

wishingW3L2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

this is VGchartz and since their numbers are often off then to post them on N4G you need to do so as a rumor so people don't start complaining.

And the PS3 has been outselling the Xbox every year since when the Slim came out. This is how they were able to reduce the 8 million gap to 2 but North America alone is boosting the Xbox's sales like crazy. NA is the biggest video game market in the world after all but is still crazy that there is a 14 million gap on that region. Americans really doesn't like the PS3.

VGChartz's owner pulls numbers from his butt on a constant basis, and when he gets REAL numbers, he just changes his "best guesses" from his "sources" (aka his ass), and it's a joke that anyone with any kind of proper brain function takes the site or its owner seriously.

Hope you know that the website makes adjustments after the official numbers have been released per region every year. Xbox have been getting outsold the last 3 years. Looking at nothing but NPD's the whole time will make you delusional

Last year the 360 outsold the Ps3 world wide, so your statement is false.

ChunkyLover532217d ago

You do realize that the Xbox 360 was number 1 world wide in 2011 right? Just thought I'd let you know, it was a pretty big thing around here. I think a big part of that was the huge Black Friday sales which saw 1 million Xbox 360's and almost 1 million Kinect's get sold on that day alone.

Ryo-Hazuki2217d ago

Xbox was not number 1 last year. Just because MS said they were doesn't mean that was the truth. They claimed that based off shipping numbers. MS is notorious for over shipping consoles. That is a fact. Go look at the fiscal numbers and statements PS3 outsold 360. That is also a fact

TheLyonKing2217d ago

I will till official numbers but it looks good for the ps3 nearly 50% market share is very impressive.

This explains perfectly why my 360 is a bookend dust magnet then and why my Wii is currently at the bottom of my garden doubling as a garden gnome.

Why purchase game consoles if your not going to use them ?

Got a 360 in 2007.....Haven't gone more than 3-4 days without playing a game on it.

A gamer who doesn't game is no gamer at all.

DarkHeroZX2217d ago

Easy, no games on either two which keeps them relavent. I bought a gears 3 360 but sold the harddrive after I beat gears 3. Since the ps3 gets all the multi-plats and has a ton of exclusives out and still coming with free online many gamers don't feel the need to use their wii or 360. I spend about 30hrs on gaming a week with work and school factored in and the majority of that time is spent on the ps3 or vita. I recently got an r4 for my 3DS so I got alot of games to catch up there.

Qrphe2217d ago

Not playing on xbox for months maybe a personal choice if you own one (or just don't want to play for Live anymore), but I'm sure the vast majority of Wii owners here haven't touched their Wiis in the last couple of years except for a few games.

Sony needs to do something for the Vita.
